‘Unambitious third rate manager’ – These Stoke City fans not happy after draw v Reading



Stoke City’s draw with Reading was perhaps reflective of their season, showing lots of promise but ultimately failing to deliver anything of note.

They fell behind to a Marc McNulty goal, battled back well to get their noses in front but then conceded deep into stoppage time to lose the three points.

Whilst it wasn’t a defeat, Gary Rowett’s post-match moan about the referee has masked a wider problem within the Stoke ranks. They’re eight points from the drop, the same from the top six and seemingly in for a season of consolidation and nothing more.

Whilst a promoted side might be happy with that, a former Premier League side that have spent good money will not be. The fans are split on what the problem is, but there’s already voices calling for the former Burton manager to go.

He’s been the subject of much debate on social media in the aftermath of the draw, with some fans believing he’s been let down by players, others feeling he is the one to blame.

It remains to be seen if he stays in the job, but for now these fans have already decided what they think of him.
