Stoke City

Magic man Bojan does it again


Bojan's injury is tragic but opens the door for other Stoke players to step up

Bojan Krkic's season-ending injury is a bitter blow for Stoke as the Spanish striker was enjoying a good first season in England.

Stoke travelled to Rochdale on Monday night desperate to avoid the kind of upset some of their high-flying Premier League colleagues endured over the weekend. A professional 4-1 win saw the Potters through to the fifth round of the FA Cup but news of Bojan Krkic's season-ending knee injury cut short any celebrations on what turned out to be a costly evening for the club.

Having put his side ahead with just three minutes on the clock with a sublime volley from 25 yards, Stoke fans took a collective...

Stoke would be wise to use direct approach at Rochdale

The magic of the FA Cup returns on Monday night for Rochdale as they entertain Premier League Stoke City in a match Rochdale manager Keith Hill describes as "the biggest and best test so far" for his League One side.

As ever, the prospect of a giant-killing will be enough to whip Rochdale's fans -- as well as many a footballing neutral -- into the kind of frenzy reserved for the world's most revered domestic cup competition. The gap between the two sides is 39 league positions, but the gulf has...

Magic man Bojan the inspiration again as Stoke edge past Leicester

Bojan Krkic made the difference for Stoke with the only goal of the game in their win at Leicester on Saturday.

Stoke emerged with a 1-0 win at Leicester on Saturday courtesy of a man who is the personification of quality; Bojan Krkic.

His smart turn and arrowed finish was enough to seal victory at the King Power Stadium -- Stoke's fourth on the road this season -- to bounce back from their heaviest defeat of the campaign in the last game against Arsenal.

It was a performance in danger of being destabilised with news of captain Ryan Shawcross failing a late fitness test but they coped admirably in his absence....

Victor Moses' return a boost for Stoke fans while Dzeko remains a dream

Stoke, who face Leicester on Saturday, have been linked with an ambitious move for Edin Dzeko following Wilfried Bony's move to Manchester City.

Stoke head into their match with Leicester grateful to face a more immediate rival, having endured a nightmare schedule of fixtures over the holidays. The concept of a trip to the King Power Stadium is certainly a lot less daunting than one to Old Trafford, Anfield or the Emirates Stadium.

Magic man Bojan Krkic is expected to be fully fit and ready to dazzle, the Spaniard rivalling on-loan Victor Moses for the end of season team awards in his absence. He will again start behind Peter Crouch with...

Stoke's backline couldn't handle dynamic Alexis Sanchez in Arsenal loss

It was an unhappy reunion with Arsenal for Stoke, who showed little of the promise they displayed against the Gunners when they hosted them a few weeks ago in a 3-2 win on Dec. 6. The 3-0 reverse score line doesn't quite tell the story of how much better the Gunners were on the day.

It was a bad day at the office for the Potters, who handed a debut to German loanee Philipp Wollscheid from Bayer Leverkusen who came in for the unfortunate Marc Muniesa. It was an interesting decision as the Spanish...

Inspired Alexis Sanchez continues to play the role of Arsenal talisman

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Alexis Sanchez goal (49') Arsenal 3-0 Stoke City

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Arsenal's 3-0 win vs. Stoke in the Premier League.

1. Sanchez destroys Stoke

First, a crashing challenge from Stoke midfielder Steven N'Zonzi was hurdled with wondrous agility, before Alexis Sanchez accelerated past Geoff Cameron and performed another act of balletic brilliance in sending both Philipp Wollscheid and Ryan Shawcross the wrong way, using the latter as a screen to similarly fox goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

It was a brilliant goal from a player scaling...
