Stoke City continue to under-achieve under manager Gary Rowett, after failing to take all three points in their latest outing against struggling Reading, who managed a 90th-minute equaliser to take a share of the points.
This latest result will heap further pressure on beleaguered manager Gary Rowett and with former Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill interested in taking over at the bet365 Stadium according to the Sun on Sunday (December 2, Page 59), the curtain could soon be coming down on Rowett at Stoke.
So would O’Neill be a good appointment at Stoke?
I think it would be a backwards step from Stoke if they were to oust Gary Rowett and appoint Martin O’Neill.
Whoever took over at Stoke in the summer had an uphill task trying to acclimatise to the Championship and get the club back on the straight and narrow in terms of finances.
Rowett isn’t doing an awful job but it could be better, but too long him off now and get in a manager who in truth, has had his prime years, I can’t see how it would benefit the Potters.
Get him in now, seriously.
Rowett is not the man to take them out of the Championship, but O’Neill?
He’d be superb.
Stoke need a change before the season is gone completely.
I don’t think they need to replace Rowett anytime soon.
O’Neill isn’t exactly the most proven manager at club level in recent years and Stoke shouldn’t be considering bringing him in.
Gary Rowett has shown glimpses of some good form with Stoke this season and he will be the man to turn their poor start to the season around.
