I have let a couple of days pass to take in the result, the performance and the reaction – all of which have surprised me to be honest. It seems whenever anything goes wrong at the club, be it on or off the pitch, the ‘supporters’ always, without fail, need someone to blame; and not for the first time this season Pulis won this honour after Saturday's 2-0 defeat to the Champions of England. The game was poor, the performance from players and fans alike was poor – but aren’t we all entitled to a bad day at the office?

On the whole it was a good display by the Potters but once again we were denied in the closing minutes, this time by an equaliser from the penalty spot following a stupid and lazy challenge by Danny Collins.

Apologies to those regular readers for the lack of updates – I have been away for a couple of weeks and got married too so have been pre-occupied and although I specifically chose a non match day to do the deed I still found myself late back on the Saturday so missed much of the Chelsea game…
