Stoke City FC squad new player in and out 2017/18. Here is the Stoke City FC Squad 2017/18 (First team)
Stoke have been improving their squad this summer ahead of the 2018/19 season. Stoke City are now a sustained Premier League side well into their 9th season. They have made some very good signings over the last few seasons but some would argue they have under-performed.
Stoke City Football Club’s nicknames are The Potters, which is named after the famous pottery industry based in the city of Stoke. There are the second-oldest professional club in the world, founded in 1863.
The rivals of Stoke City are other local midlands sides such as Birmingham City, Aston Villa, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Stoke City pride themselves on saying that they are currently doing better than all of their rivals as all 3 will be in the Championship next season.
The top level of English football is where Stoke City Football Club plays. Stoke City were a relatively unknown club just a few years ago, but they are building a bigger fanbase and reputation. Their home ground is known as The Britannia Stadium, although it was renamed the Bet365 Stadium recently for sponsorship reasons.
They have been playing at this stadium since 1997, so it is relatively new compared with other stadiums. There is a 27,902 seat capacity, which is relatively small for a Premier League side. Maybe they will look to expand their stadium soon in the future.
The Stoke City FC squad line up in the 2017/18 season consist of these players.
Stoke City have one of the best young goalkeepers in the country in their squad. Jack Butland is developing into an elite goalkeeper. Despite suffering a long-term injury about 18 months ago while playing for England, he has really impressed since returning and prior to that. He is tipped to become the future England no.1 and has been linked with big moves away from Stoke City. Potters fans will be glad he has decided to stay put.
Stoke City have made a couple of interesting defensive additions this season. Already having a good player like Ryan Shawcross in their back-line is a good thing, but they have also added others. They’ve signed Kurt Zouma on loan from Chelsea. Zouma is a great player who needs more minutes on the pitch after suffering a bad injury in 2015/16. He managed to get a bit of game-time last season but not enough to help his development. Hopefully for him he will play plenty of matches at Stoke City. They’ve also signed Bruno Martins-Indi on a permanent deal from Porto. He signed for £7million following a successful loan spell last season. Stoke City signed Moritz Bauer in the January transfer window 2018 and he has turned out to be a good buy. He has put in a number of good performances as a full-back.
Again, a couple of good midfield additions have been acquired by Mark Hughes and Stoke City this summer. Perhaps their most important signing has been Darren Fletcher. He is a veteran who brings bags of experience to the squad. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is also an exciting acquisition, as he showed with a brace in the Potters’ recent 2-2 draw against Manchester United.
Stoke City’s attack is possibly the most exciting department of their squad. It’s certainly where they have the most options. They have some really good players such as Saido Berahino and Xherdan Shaqiri, who is probably their most dangerous player. Jese Rodriguez adds another option, and in Peter Crouch they have one of the Premier League’s most unique strikers.
