Well…..I’m not sure what to say about that really? Out-thought, out-muscled and outclassed, and if reports are to be believed that was just between two of our own players as yet another bust up was worryingly leaked to the nationals.

It was more the day of the Trotters than the Triffics as Stoke snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in a ten minute capitulation from a team who were perhaps thinking more about the beach than holding on for that last 10 minutes. This report will tackle some of the issues through the day and most importantly the aftermath of what was a terribly disappointing day for all associated with the Potters instead of taking it’s usual format.

Stoke played out a bore draw on Sunday, the player’s body clock’s skewed by the pointless shifting of the kick off time to noon Sunday seemed to take effect as many played as if they had themselves stuck two fingers up at the police and decided to get legless in advance of the kick off to show it COULD be done.

Stoke duly brushed aside any renewed optimism from the Hull camp as they convincingly beat the lame Tigers 2-0.

In what was one of Stoke’s poorest performances at home, we rarely got out of second gear and apart from palming a soft Bullard shot, Sorensen had nothing to do all afternoon which must be worrying for the increasingly concerned Hull fans who will be praying the media darlings of West Ham, much like Newcastle last season, can continue their own run of poor form as the hunger and desire to pull clear of relegation themselves just isn’t there.
