uttoxram75 Posted November 27, 2011 Share Posted November 27, 2011 The son-in-law is a Stoke fan. His seat is just behind the dug outs at the cold, windy, house on a hill that is the Britannia Stadium. At saturdays match Stoke beat Blackburn 3-1 in what my son-in-law says was a dire game that was mostly played in the clouds. The point of the post though is the attitude of highly paid professional footballers. Jermaine Pennant was taken off, as he walked toward the bench he shook his head, slumped his shoulders and refused the outstretched hand of his manager, Tony Pulis. He angrily snatched the offered coat from one of the back room staff and brushed aside a bottle of water, sending it flying. Pulis went up to him and gave him the hairdryer. Peter Crouch was substituted as well. He jogged straight to Pulis, shook his hand, received a pat on his back and a few words of encouragement. Crouch shook hands with all the back room staff, took his coat and water with grace and thanks all round. In my old, cynical opinion Pennant should be sacked immediately and banned from signing for any other club for 10 years. The bloke is on £35k per week yet publically snubs his boss. Although two metre Peter is not my favourite player, he has gone up in my estimation for his (public at least) attitude. Guess which one is more popular with the Stokies?
