'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Potters Stars may leave…..

As the dust settles on yet another frantic summer of transfer activity -another market today has opened albeit for the lower league clubs. The Loan Market.

Although admittedly not as fun and as crazy as the transfer windows it is as important for all clubs involved. Lower league sides are now able to take players who aren`t getting regular football and provide them with a chance to prove themselves.

In our not so long ago past we have enjoyed much success over the years by luring players such as Lee Hendrie, Patrick Berger and Andy Griffin (those names don`t seem to be so glamorous now do they?) to come and spend a couple of months in the Potteries. Now we have the luxury of sending "Our Not so Bright Stars" away to allow them to play regular football.

Pulis is a huge believer in the loan market and will have no hesitation in loaning some players out this time around. The futures of players such as; Richard Cresswell, Amdy Faye, Andrew Davies, Danny Pugh, Carl Dickinson and Michael Tonge are all currently unclear.

Dicko spent a couple of months out at Leeds last season and a similar move maybe on the cards again. The left-back has said that he still wants to fight for his place, but now at the age of 22 he is getting to the stage in his footballing life where he can no longer be labelled as 'One for the Future`.

The other more experienced players are surely questioning their futures with Stoke and maybe looking for somewhere more permanent come January 1st ~ but for now a loan move could be on the cards and all we can say is watch this space………………………….
