Nothing short of disgraceful from the second it kicked off. Can only assume the players thought all they had to do was turn up to win.  An absolute embarrassment. Time to axe Crawford too. I

Bad day at the office, move on and figure out how to replace Tutte. 

What today tells us is that our progress from being a basket case to being a solid football league club again is not going to be linear. Thank god for those four league wins that took us away from the

Never seem to have brought a mob up to Bolton though, a lot came in the FA cup tie, but cant remember any incidents.

They got agitated when we went 3 up after about 20 minutes, 3 or 4 years ago

Google has stoke to manc and stoke to brum at 44.5 miles

Aye, Sheffield is closer 

Think Oxford were classed as Midlands for tv / footy coverage and thats 77 miles from brum

It's the potteries accent what gives it away between N Staffs and S Cheshire.

Nantwich/Crewe is North West.

Alsager & Audlem are Midlands.

There's only about 4 miles between them but the distinction is very clear.

Stokies  are a breed apart. Stoke & its five fckg towns are holes ... & not in a good way.

It will please all to know their wages must be the lowest I've ever witnessed ... including the Welsh Valleys & Middlesbrough.

I loved the place, had digs in Hanley and the town was buzzing on a Monday night, never seen as much talent in the bars and pubs, Newcastle up the road was the same on a Wednesday.

Love going to Vale, it's always mental.

Except on boxing day 96

Hadn't even got out the car fully when some bloke told us it was off 

Basically went for a 120 mile drive

Think they changed the boundaries at some point as I remember Wrexham being covered on there as well. 

Yes, Granadaland has often encroached. The population of North East Wales is about 40% English and they shop & work in Chester, Wirral, Manchester & Merseyside. They support Everton & Stretford ... & a bit of Liverpool with Wrexham sometimes their team but even then they have a "second team".

Come round there & look at the TV aerials & 90% point to Winter Hill.

Otherwise they're getting news stories from Merthyr & Neath & Cardiff which means f'call to them. It only joins together as a nation for the Rugby otherwise they hate each other.

 

But, when the Assembly was created there was a push to establish airwave boundaries & so BBC NWest & Granada were ordered to keep out and a lot more TV relay masts were built. So the old Clwyd area is no longer covered on NW tv.

Racism really.

I have never seen us lose a match against Port Vale, started going in 1989.

We must have a better record against Port Vale than any other team we have faced on a semi regular basis. 

Played 36

Won 24

Drawn 10

Lost 2

And the 2 defeats came 50 days apart in 1988 (FA Cup and a league match).

was a big student night in Stoke (back in the 90’s at least anyway);

”The Place” was where it was liveliest on Mondays

’castle was seen as a slightly more upmarket night out but better Thursdays

Stokies are an odd but genuine, down to earth bunch in the main; that plus the 6 towns stuff always reminded me of Bolton (what with in-house rivalry of areas), as did the town centre
 

Best pie at the footy I’ve ever had was at Port Vale n all

Scroll to 0:55 secs 😆

Fukin hell, you can't just scroll to a single sequence.

Once you've clicked on it, you have to watch it all.

Tuesday morning & I'm welling up...🙄
