Stoke Who are You?: the ‘Marvellous’ clown who became a Potteries legend

Who indeed?

The story of Neil Baldwin* is an astonishing and uplifting one. Born to devoted Stoke City supporters, Neil had learning difficulties and needed speech therapy.

Sixer’s Stoke City Soapbox: following Sunderland – a harsh form of community service

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……after another abject performance and the one result we didn’t want, it looks as if the writing is on the wall. Well let’s be honest, there were already a few daubings on the brickwork but now the whole thing is covered in graffiti and it doesn’t make for pleasant reading. Unlike Pete Sixsmith’s […]

Moyes on the Boyes at Stoke: right to feel SAFC deserved more, or deluded?

Salut Banner5(featured image)

To many of us who, one way or the other, saw the 2-0 defeat at Stoke City, this was a Sunderland display that insulted those occupying another sell-out away end and suggested the record for the lowest number of Premier League points, currently 11 and held by Derby County, will be returning to Wearside.

Seasonal Adjustment Disorder syndrome. It’s October, so SAFC fans are SAD

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Around this time of every year, there are certainties we take for granted. The calendar will tell us it is October, trees shed leaves, shops advertise Christmas as if it’s only next week and Sunderland supporters still await a first win of the season.
