Stoke were stoke to me yesterday for the first time in a while. The management, team players, the crowd and all giving 100% for Stoke.
It helped the league leaders Leeds were in town as every body was up for it.
Jones surprised me with the 3-5-2 set up but it worked a treat we defended well and limited Leeds to next to nothing. We pressed Leeds and forced mistakes and attacked at speed and had numbers going forward. No passing sideways and backwards but effective passes when required. It helped Leeds did not come to defend.
We edged the first half and once we scored Leeds had a lot of possession but never looked like scoring, the only blip was not keeping a clean sheet as Leeds scored with the last kick of the game.
Leeds looked a good team when i watched them on Tv but yesterday Stoke’s play stopped them and they were second best.
Thanks Stoke for the first real great day watching you in a long time please make this the normal.
Don’t know what to expect from this Jekkyl and Hyde team . Will we continue or will we relapse into another coma? So just like Stoke …. we always get humiliated by lesser teams. Wonder if Barcelona’s players were watching?
