Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur – Tactical Preview

This piece originally appeared on

In honour of Tottenham’s opponents this weekend, our Head Of Opposition Scouting has taking a much different approach to his preview article on this occasion. In video form, rather than being well researched and written, he, much like Stoke themselves, has done away with evaluating the intricate nuances of the game, and has deemed academic, well informed tactical analysis irrelevant given what is sure to come. Below is our minimal thought, basic preview of the approach of Stoke City – a compilation worthy of Tony Pulis himself.

As mere words cannot possibly describe the true vulgarity and violence of Stoke City, this week’s scouting report comes to you in video form:

Stoke City: defensive tactics

Stoke City: attacking tactics

Of course, these are the toned down ‘12A’ cuts. The full versions included too much in the way of gore, blood and severed limbs to be included on a family website.

Good luck, Tottenham. May at least some of your number survive.
