Stoke City 2 - 1 Derby County

Bet 365 Stadium
Stoke

2000
28 Nov 2017


After the fortutious win against the Owls (edit ) on Saturday all the usual brave descriptors of the win came out - plucky, stoic, hard fought, gritty, rearguard, persistant ....blah blah...

Its just I thought we had got past all that and that we were a free flowing, playing from the back, beautiful to watch, tic a taka type team. Still we are sixth place.

A couple of intriguing reunions will be witnessed on Wednesday night - both Marmite type figures - who's worth to Derby have both admirers and haters.

Gary Rowett and Tom Ince.

'Nuff said. Argue below.

Derby's Jayden Bogle should be back after being interviewed by his line manager on his return to work. He was allowed. George Who will not be risked and Fozzie, Mason B, Dedley and Ollie are all long term.

Believe it or not, this will be the first time we have met in the league since 2007 – almost 12 years – which Stoke won 2-0….god how we have missed them….and we are still haunted by that elusive clean sheet

Stoke are picking themselves together after a poor start and are very slowly finding momentum - seemingly grinding out results and climbing the table. Rowett seems to have got them playing in a particular way - is it the way we used to play?

It's like having Suarez playing for you, but without being a good player.

Disgusting behaviour.

This lot are getting used to indifferent players...

On another note has Carson taken up cookery classes?

Because he's developing butter fingers!

And on a serious note for a great example of a player looking to con the referee at the start of a game look no further than Jack Grealish.

Anyway what are you going to do with all those blowup snakes?

Agree Backo.

Them red Forest barstewards know all about rushing -to and crying to refs, often in desperate attempts to get opposing players sent off. THAT is disgusting!

Do you remember how the whined at the ref to get Frank sent off when their (was it Cox?) fell over him? But we got over it and actually beat them them 2-1 with only 10 men for almost the whole game.

Ismael Miller, the cheating barsteward. What about how they whinged about Jake Buxton's slightly physical approach to the game and how he frightened "hard man" Henderson to death.
