‘Didn’t understand the idea of going forward’ – Plenty of Stoke City fans are unhappy with 28-y/o’s performance v WBA

Stoke City’s season has lurched from mild promise to mid table obscurity, with a 1-0 defeat at home against West Brom doing little to fire the fans’ imagination.

Gary Rowett’s dismissal saw Luton Town manager Nathan Jones recruited, but he’s bagged just one win in six and has seemingly simply picked up where his predecessor left off. In their 1-0 defeat they looked toothless, offering little in attack despite not playing badly.

They didn’t look a class below their opponents, but while the Baggies hold very real dreams of a trip to Old Trafford next, Stoke City can only hope to go there in the cup. They’ve failed to deliver on their promise and several big money players are not performing.

One came in for particularly criticism last night, with Sam Clucas angering fans with a tepid display in the middle of the park. He was intent on passing sideways and backwards, never looking positive on the ball at all.

That’s exactly the sort of thing that fans notice and seize upon, which is exactly what they did, as you can read below.
