Pulis left to rue Potters luck

Pulis left to rue Potters luck

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has expressed his disappointment at the officials during yesterday`s match against Wolves. The Potters, leading 2-0 at the break, were pegged back to 2-2 during the second period and there were some questionable decisions to say the least.

Jody Craddock was at least a yard offside as he bundled in his first of the afternoon shortly after the break and Pulis was not happy that his side were on the wrong side of a debated call yet again.

"The goal so soon after the break gave them a massive lift, but we`re not happy because it was a poor decision in the first place to give the free-kick and then Craddock was a yard and a half offside at the far post" the former Plymouth manager said after the match.

He did however complement the players on how far they have come since promotion just over a year ago. "Its disappointing that we didn`t hold on to our lead, but that says a lot about how far we have come that we feel that way after two wins and two draws in the last four games".

Your bang on TP it was disappointing but considering we are 9th in the league after playing the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Man Utd and Spurs. It aint all bad!

what the hell is Pullis on about, the free kick was rightly given, we have had a lot of bad decisions go against us, what has he got to moan about-in the first half the ref gave stoke everything when in fact they should have had at least 5 bookings against them (dirty gets) Pullis you are a w----r and a cheat-go away and cry in your soup-2-0 you f----d it up again, at 2-2 there looked to be only one winner and it wasn't Stoke, Stoke are a lump it up the field team with big S--thouse wall players who bully the oposition, Saturday they came up against a team that 1. wasn't going to get bullied2. tried to play "football" something that Stoke do NOT have in their locker.. WE ARE WOLVES...............

johnwolf you talk crap. Fuller killed you lot and there were at least 2 certain bookings that werent given to Wolves for fouls on him. As for the goal there is no way it should have been given whatever your so called luck has been. Fair enough Stoke threw it away 2nd half but if that gola wsnt given we get 3 points and go joint 6th where as you go 17th. FACT!
