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

Whelan casts doubts over Potters future


For the sake of his international future, Glenn Whelan has admitted that he may have to leave the Potters in search of regular first team action. The Irishman, who will start tonight against Norway, hasn`t started a game since September for Stoke and with the depth in midfield that Ireland have, he is worried about his place.

He said "I`m not stupid and if your not playing week in, week out you are going to loose your match sharpness". Then he said "If it means leaving the club, so be it, but im not thinking about that right now".

I for one would very sad to see him go, he is the best passer of a ball we have in midfield, although Marc Wilson would run him close, and he has come on leaps and bounds since forcing his way into the team two years ago, just like Ryan Shawcross.

The pair who currently occupy the centre of midfield, Dean Whitehead and Rory Delap, were both excellent against Birmingham and Liverpool so it will be very hard for Glenn to overcome those two, and Marc Wilson who also seems to be ahead of him in the pecking order.

Competition for places is much higher this season then it has ever been, but Pulis has said that there will be chances for all players at some point it is just whether they can take them. Stoke are away at WBA this weekend.
