Why Arsenal now have nothing to fear from Stoke in the Potteries

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger believes the transfer window should be closed before the start of the season to avoid playing the same players more than twice.

In May 2017, Arsenal scratched a seven-year itch. A 4-1 victory at Stoke City was their first in the Potteries since February 2010, a torrid Saturday evening that fired a deep-seated rivalry between the two clubs.

That was the night a 3-1 Arsenal win was marred by the broken leg suffered by Aaron Ramsey after a loose, dangerous tackle by Ryan Shawcross. That those two players are likely to play a part this Saturday should certainly add spice to the atmosphere but Arsenal fans already do not like...

Rooney's dream homecoming kick-starts Everton's 'revolution' in style

English Premier League: Wayne Rooney (45'+1) Everton 1-0 Stoke City

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three quick thoughts from Everton's 1-0 season-opening win over Stoke City in the Premier League:

1. Rooney makes perfect homecoming

All summer long Everton fans have, privately or publicly, harboured their little doubts about Wayne Rooney. Some have never wavered, but for most there has been pointed talk of his "influence in the dressing room" and his "experience at the highest level," those intangible qualities that would surely compensate for his fading powers. But on...

Marko Arnautovic's move disappointing, leaves Stoke short

Marko Arnautovic making a lateral move is disappointing and leaves Stoke with a huge void.

Mark Hughes will start the season without one of his most prolific forwards, having seen the Stoke hierarchy reluctantly agree to the club-record £20 million sale of want-away winger Marko Arnautovic to West Ham.

It's a hammer blow (no pun intended) to a manager who has found himself leaning heavily on the maverick talent who cost him under £3m when he signed from Werder Bremen in 2013. Sadly, in the end there was little he could do to change the mind of a player who had firmly signalled...

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch to stand in as rock radio DJ

Peter Crouch has never hidden his love of indie and rock music, and can often be spotted watching his favourite bands throughout the season. Let's be honest, you can't exactly miss him in the crowd.

And, at the age 36, it seems Stoke City are happy to let the veteran striker take time out of the club's preseason training programme to host a show on a rock station for two weeks.

Crouch has been best buddies with journalist and Radio X evening show host Gordon Smart for some time, and so when the presenter...
