    Undoubtedly talented. Bit moody and could do with losing a bit of the timber he is carrying..
    Haven't you heard of the gnomes of Zurich ?
    If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      Yes. He'd find it a real wrench tearing himself away from the local ameneties: the pull of the Potteries Museum, the pub where Phil 'The Power' Taylor practices his arrows, and last but not least Alton Towers.
      Reckon he has had a few of these...

      If we stay up (which of course we will) do you think our pay structure will alter significantly? Genuine question
      I dont think so
      Most of the guys are on reasonable contracts and deals. I cant see too much need for summer transfers and the clubs finances (El Pres will know better) arent likely to change too much next season. Sustainability for a season or two and not running at a big loss is what everyone should be after

      Just my opinion

      Think it will but hopefully not as much as Palace did. I seem to recall a massive increase in their wage bill for 2nd season.
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      The only reason he is at Stoke is because he'd lost his way at the top of the game in recent years. He was clearly Stoke's best player at the Amex and watching on the tele he looked worlds apart from his colleagues on Saturday. I would imagine he'd fit comfortably in to a Champions League team on the continent (Napoli, Roma, Valencia, RB Leipzig etc.) and if he wanted to stay in England I can only see him improving a team like Everton, Spurs or Arsenal.
      If we got him, it'd be a Vicente style coup! (plus we would never pay his wages)
      He is not good enough to get into either Spurs or Arsenal as they both have better already and IMHO the height of his ability is a mid-table Premier side so possibly Everton but I doubt Big Sam would want him. I would possibly pick him above Knockaert but not Stephens Propper or Gross. When they get relegated he and the rest of the Stoke team may have a reduction clause in their wage deal. The one they will lose is Butland and possibly Shawcross.

      Everton were interested when Stoke got him I think, from Inter. I was impressed with his desire to win the game, as much as his ability.
      I think Stoke would want to keep him in trying to bounce back straightaway, he is contracted to 2020, if they don't come straight back, I reckon he will go then.

      Just my opinion
      Of the 25 man squad,

      Maenpaa
      Krul
      Rosenior
      Bruno
      Bong
      Hunemeier

      are out of contract. ( Sidwell is as well ).

      Those that are replaced will be so with players on higher money.

      On top of that there could be 3 or 4 sales of other players, also with higher earning replacements in some cases.
      Out of contract June 2019 : Bruno, Bong, Kayal, Skalak, Hemed, Murray, Norwood

      Chris seemingly rates every player in the PL highly, by that token we should prepare for a MASSIVE influx of players over the summer ;)

      You can call Shaqiri and Charlie Adam what you want but don’t ever call them late for lunch. My god they run like a couple of tugboats.
      I did fear for Dunk when he flattened Adams it could have killed him if his full weight had come down on him.
