‘It is one of life’s great mysteries’ – What is going on with this Stoke City striker?



Stoke City continue to struggle in the Championship under manager Gary Rowett this season, having only picked up four points from a possible 12 over the busy Christmas schedule.

A player who continues to stutter at the bet365 Stadium is  striker Benik Afobe who has only scored six goals in his 26 appearances for the Potters.

So what’s gone wrong with Benik Afobe at Stoke?

We discuss…..

Louie Chandler

It is one of life’s great mysteries.

He seems to have got himself into a bit of a rut and there seems very little way of getting out of it.

A new striker is 100% needed if the Potters are going to push for the play-offs in 2019.

George Dagless

It’s a strange one.

You’d have thought he’d score goals for Stoke with the players around him but the whole set-up is wrong really.

Most of their attacking players have failed to fire and so clearly a new system needs to be devised to get them on the same hymn sheet.

Gary Hutchinson

He signed for Gary Rowett.

That might sound harsh, but Rowett was not a good choice for Stoke City and his team have flopped all round.

It could be asked what has gone wrong for Joe Allen, Ryan Shawcross and a host of other good players flopping at Stoke.

Rowett is the common denominator.

Alfie Burns

It’s difficult to say.

Maybe he is never going to thrive at Stoke whilst they’re playing like they are, but who knows, we’ve seen him do better than this in worse sides.

Something needs to be done, though.
