‘Better team today’, ‘Woeful’ – These Stoke City fans are divided after latest defeat



Stoke City succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against West Brom yesterday, but manager Nathan Jones claimed it was the best performance he’d seen from the players under his management.

The Baggies led from the 25th minute courtesy of Dwight Gayle, with neither side able to add to that score. Whilst they fly high in fourth, their former Premier League rivals are having a significantly worse season.

They’re now 17th in the table and brief aspirations of a play-off spot brought on at Christmas have been long forgotten. They’re 12 points clear of the bottom three, but they’re the same number adrift of the top seven.

Still, former Luton manager Jones wasn’t too despondent, with Keith Wales of the Stoke Sentinel reporting that he said “It’s a positive performance from me. It’s the best performance since I’ve been here.”

That isn’t something echoed by the fans replying on Twitter, although there does appear to be some division. On one hand there’s the grounded replies who see a work in progress, on the other those just plain angry at the club’s plight.

Here’s a taster from both sides of the fence.
