Re: The fall of Stoke City and Vokes / Ward

Nothing I wouldn't have thought, but the fact is a big striker who can head a ball, as Sam does, doesn't really fit into the way he plays. I know a couple of Stoke fans well, both think he's absolutely clueless (Jones that is, not Vokes, who they don't like by the way). Yeah, what I was implying is...

In what sense? Gregory is 2cm taller than Sam, similar target man traits, with a far poorer scoring record, in poorer leagues.

What does he bring that Sam doesn't?

The fall of Stoke City and Vokes / Ward

Can anyone shed any light into the situation at Stoke City? Looking over the match reports of recent games, it seems that Sam (Still only 29) is being kept out of the team by Lee Gregory, who 2 years his senior, has only managed 1 goal in 11 games and is a cast off from a Championship / League One y...
