Stoke City F.C.
Stoke City Football Club is a football club based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Founded in 1863, Stoke is the oldest club in the Premier League, and thought to be the second oldest professional football club in the world, after Notts County.
Stoke play their home fixtures at the Britannia Stadium, a 28,000 all-seater stadium. The stadium was opened in 1997; prior to this date Stoke had played at the Victoria Ground, which had been their home ground since 1878 (a record of 119 years currently shared with Wolverhampton Wanderers). The club's nickname is The Potters (after the pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent) and their home kit is a red-and-white vertically striped shirt with white shorts and white socks.
Over the 2009 summer period, City built on their squad, by signing several established Premier League players, most notably; Robert Huth and Tuncay ?anl? from Middlesbrough and Danny Collins and Dean Whitehead from Sunderland.
The new season began with a mixed start. A comfortable win at home to Burnley, was soon followed by a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool just four days later. However, a good run followed; a draw at Birmingham City, a 1-0 win in the Carling Cup at Leyton Orient (with Dave Kitson scoring his first competitive goal for the team), and a 1-0 win at home to Sunderland. Stoke lost their second meeting with a 'big four' team 2-1 at home, with Florent Malouda scoring four-minutes into extra time to clinch the victory for Chelsea. Manchester United also defeated City the following week, 2-0. A surprise win against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane; Glenn Whelan scoring 86 minutes into the match to make the score 1-0.
