Those Stoke stats clearly can't be right? Will try and find another source.

thought we'd lose to today to be fair. Nice passing football but ... and how many seasons have we said this (?) ... no end ball. But as said, I expected Stoke to be too physical for our young team but that didn't prove the case.

Why do you not think the Stoke stats are right? From what I heard they had a lot less possession and didn't have a shot on target

looks right to me, seen them differ from 60% to 64% possession for us. Neither team pulled a proper save from the keeper in 90 mins, that is a bit scary!

I scanned the Beeb text commentary for 5 seconds and found proof they had at least 1 shot on target hence my assumption it was one of those days for the stato's lol

Stoke's stats are out in that there were two yellow cards for Shotton that made it an automatic red. There was one on target attempt zig, rememer Brad punched it out. Overall I was pleasantly surprised, as I thought Stoke would bully our youngsters all over the park. Weimann would have been a better partnership for Tekkers, as Gabby has definately gone.

To me we are improving at the back, but it still isn't clicking properly up front or we're still not taking our chances, or creating clear enough chances. We've a good defensive bedrock now for the most part, now we have to get the mix right up front. Good point though given most expected a loss in reality, I'd have more than taken a point before the game and for a change got my prediction spot on in the pre match interviews lol

Was the possession more 67% today? Because we had around that for most of the day and I don't think it once dropped below 65% for us (I think as I was checking every 5 minutes or so) and I also saw that Stoke had 1 shot but not on target (but again I was only checking every now and then)

Played them off the park for most of the game. Got scrappt when rHolman and Gabbywent off. Bent gave us nothing. Should have had a penalty for the challenge on Lowton in the box.
