From the post match interview he basically saying the players decided not to try and he wasn't happy about that, as far as I heard. He should've tried more young Stoke players in order to develop their skillset in such a meaningless game ( season wise ). Whatever went on it was a missed opportunity, that's for sure
If we'd done that and lost plenty would have moaned. Gave one his debut today and these games seems meaningless to many until we lose. He gave Bursik a couple of games and plenty were calling for that and nice to see another young lad playing.
Well that reply certainly took it's time in coming
“All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. ... Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”
If Fox was on a Glacier Mint, he’d fuckin stumble and fall off 🤣
Remember chatting to a Wednesday fan a while back
He still bemoaned us for taking Glenn Whelan off them all those years back, he loved him
He rated Fletcher aswell and would rather they still had him
I then brought Morgan Fox up to which he immediately apologised……
A very strange signing from MON
To be fair, Fox has had a few decent games on the left of a back 3 - QPR away and Boro home, and is a passable, if not exactly great, left back in a 4, plus is on a heck of a lot less than Chester who is generally even more of a liability! Maybe he's one that we can keep about to sit on the bench running his contract down if we have another injury Crisis if we don't sign another centre half/left back option, behind Souttar, Jagielka, Wilmot, Forrester, Taylor and potentially Okagbue if he is as highly rated as MON suggested when he was training with the first team!
Another dreadful piece of play. There was only one player worse, and I feel bad for saying it, and that was the young lad Sparrow.
Was dreadful, he’s a young lad so people rightly don’t want to put the boot in (especially as everyone was shite today) but if today was a benchmark he’s a long way to go.
I though some of the players were reluctant to pass it to him
Agree , obviously when a young player gets put in everyone ( coaches and fans at least ) hope they do well ..( both for the future , but also on a very human level )unfortunately it looked like a big step up on the day for him.
last game there’s always a risk that those players who are suppose to be supporting him are already on the beach , or else have contract concerns of their own to worry about , rather than helping someone at the very start of their Stoke career .. , doesn’t help either if the opposition are whilst not at full pace were still at 3/4 pace when your team isn’t even awake and so it was yesterday .certainly.in the first half at least and by the 2nd half when the team had at least organised itself slightly better defensively ( or the manager had done it for them ) the day then became about running down the clock without inducing a full scale fan revolt ..so there was little room to help a young passenger shine or enjoy his day.
Hopefully though he’ll of gained something ( including pride and enjoyment ) from the experience , even if it was only that even at 3/4 pace championship football is a mile away from development football ..hopefully whilst he was selected in the hope that he’d have a great game , it was also acknowledged by the manager that he may struggle & wouldn’t get the help he deserved or needed and so was encouraged at half time to just enjoy the moment.. head up lad and here’s to better days
