Stoke City fans' panel: 'We need to get rid of dead wood to allow...

We set our fans' panel just one question this week... what is the biggest challenge facing Stoke City? The first to take a punt at answering it is JON OWEN of Seabridge, a regular in the Q-Railing Stand and one of the few Stoke supporters who can look Peter Crouch squarely in the eye. Jon has been following the Potters for 26 years, and is a particular fan of Marko Arnautovic in the current team. But his all-time Stoke fave rave is one Ricardo Fuller Esq, the magician with the ball who did as...

Mark Hughes would love to see Peter Crouch resume his Little & Large partnership with Jermain Defoe for England.But he fears that while Defoe has just been thrown an international lifeline at the age of 34, the moment has probably passed for Crouch at 36."You never say never, says Hughes, "and I think Pete's never closed the door and actually retired and is always available, but I think he probably thinks that ship has sailed."A succession of managers have come in and not picked him...

Mark Hughes wants another performance like Manchester City away when Stoke face Chelsea at home this weekend... but may make changes to that team delivering a courageous 0-0 draw at The Etihad.With Marko Arnautovic fit again and the likes of Glenn Whelan and Peter Crouch pushing for a recall, Hughes has several choices in personnel, while he also has the option of playing with wing backs to match up Chelsea's favoured formation.We've got to get a lot of confidence from the Man City game,...

Aitor Karanka admits he never expected to be heading to the Potteries in March with Peter Crouch still as Stoke City's main man. Crouch had been down Mark Hughes's pecking order back when Stoke met Middlesbrough at the Riverside on the opening day of the season. But the former England striker has seized his shirt back since being handed another run up front since December and is now the club's seven-goal top scorer.

Stoke striker Peter Crouch immortalised in mug form

The lofty Stoke veteran scored his 100th top flight goal against Everton last month and dusted off his trademark robot dance to celebrate. Now a local pottery firm have produced a tribute mug in honour of Crouch which, rather fittingly, is twice as tall as a regular coffee cup. It was thought that there would be enough interest in sharing...

Joe Allen would be caught between a rock and a hard place if he was ever forced to choose between Saido Berahino or Peter Crouch as a partner up front.You suspect Allen could dovetail just as keenly alongside Berahino as he has alongside Crouch of late - and he certainly isn't going to publicly express a preference.Having enjoyed an extended taste of Berahino in training following his January move from West Bromwich Albion, Allen says: "The break came at a good time for the team and for him...

Joe Allen is no stranger to success whenever he's hit the road south for White Hart Lane. And he not only hopes to repeat that success with Stoke down at Spurs this weekend, but also wouldn't mind some revenge for a certain 4-0 thumping by Mauricio Pochettino's men at the bet365 earlier this season. Allen, who is set to line up just behind Peter Crouch or Saido Berahino at Tottenham on Sunday (1.30pm), also speaks here about a 10-goal target for the season as he looks to continue the form...
