I hear about stoke city often in posts but never saw them play. they are known for cold nights, could give a run for their money against fc barselona and so on. what is the deal with them? why so much hype??

because they are known to be defensively a very tough and a very physical team especially if any team is playing them at home..

They are bloody tough on their own turf. Gives you everything you need physicality, tough defense.

But still any top club should manage to beat them.

not just that, thats only like 50%, the other 50% is the delap throw



those throws are insane... teams still have so much trouble stopping it, even big physical teams like blackburn/bolton have a herd time defending it

Throw ins are overplayed imo, there were a threat from them in 1st season but ever since then people have learnt how to deal with them.

Actually look at stats where goals come from throw ins and it will be a lot lower than you probably think.

It's because of a legendary quote I'm not sure by whom, I think Andy Gray, about Barcelona suffering in the Premier League, and Messi dreading a cold night in the Brittania (Stoke's Stadium). Yes, are known as the "rugby" club due to their love for leg breaks and extremely physical negative tactics.

Cold night in Stoke FTW!

This cold night and physical thing is overrated. Any competent top team should be able to beat them.

It's not overrated at all. I think you miss the mocking tone the whole thing is repeated in. Most people just laugh at the whole silliness of it, but it's so absurd it just caught on.

If ya team is full of pussies (not naming any specific team ;] ) then you will have a very hard time especially on their turf.

I respect them for their terrific displays of Defense.

However, a Southern European team should enough to handle them. Get someone with a nice Longshot. Smile
