Last Game: Barclays Prem
Next Game: Barclays Prem
Welcome to TEAMtalk's Stoke City Your Say forum - the place to be for positive Potters!
After recording three straight wins to climb to eighth, it is obviously hugely disappointment that we will resume after the international break back down in 10th after back-to-back defeats to West Brom and Crystal Palace.
The defeat at The Hawthorns was certainly merited but, apart from the result, there wasn't too much to complain about back at the Brit against Palace. It was a good performance overall, but missed chances and two defensive mistakes ultimately cost us. It should serve as a reminder to us all of the club's status in the Premier League - these things are always going to happen from time to time to mid-table clubs without the strength in depth and consistent quality of the top six or seven teams.
With trips to Chelsea and West Ham to come next, the defeats may prove to be a big setback in the bid to better last season's points tally, but then Stoke have picked up plenty of surprise results this term - good and bad. Ten points, wherever and however they are accumulated, are likely to be enough for eighth spot so fingers crossed the squad can stay as fit as possible between now and May 24 to give us the best possible chance of yet another landmark season.
