Royal Ginger Everything high and long comes back immediately.


True and a Stoke side able to defend that stuff shouldn't be a surprise

Lower West Have Stoke worked out how to stop us playing. This is poor.

Typical Stoke

Stoke should scored then. McLean with a great chance

Awful minute from Ejaria there. Let's his man go unopposed, then controls a ball straight back to them after playing Swift into trouble.

I’ve lost count how many times individual players have been beaten. Stoke getting past us far too easily, it’s really uncharacteristic.

Typical Reading. Toothless. No pace upfront.

Need to get our act together because at the moment it looks a matter of time until they score.

Gotta be one of our worst performances of the season.

Stoke have 3 players surrounding us every time we get the ball. We look decidedly average and are lucky not to be at least 1 goal down. Oh and Fletcher can kiss my arse.

Just think Stoke are pressing and defending well.

That wasn't good, probably fortunate to be 0-0 at HT.

Very, extremely poor from just about everyone.

225 minutes of football at Stoke now and still no goals.

Utterly awful game so far and the lack of any threat is a real concern. But then that about sums up both of the last two league trips to Stoke as well.

Stoke on top. Our midfield is just not at the races. I think we need to bring Yaks on early in the second half.

Yeh there is that. But we've been so sloppy in possession as well.

Still 45 minutes to get themselves started. Come out a more determined side in the second half and turn this match around.

Terrible. Midfield all over the shop. Ejaria, Swift and Olise all passengers. Joao needs to release the ball rather than try and win the game himself.

Poor so far, especially in midfield. But Stoke have used up a lot of energy pressing.
