..And She Laughed No More: Stoke City's (first) Premiership Adventure
Stoke City's Premiership Adventure. In 2008, unfashionable Stoke City managed to grind their way into the Promised Land of the premiership. Under the dour, pragmatic guidance of manager Tony Pulis, they were never going to be pretty to watch. Lifetime Stoke supporter Stephen Foster describes a club with a chip on its brawny shoulders, whose tactics were built around heroic defiance of superstars earning 150 grand a week - and, of course, Rory Delap's long throw. This is the sequel to Foster's bestselling 'She Stood There Laughing'.
She Stood There Laughing: A Man, His Son and Their Football Club
Last season Stoke City were unexpectedly propelled into the dizzy heights of the First Division, rare oxygen for a club that has been known to have three managers in one season. Stephen Foster, a diehard fan, who now lives in Norwich, follows the fortunes of his dire team as they struggle to retain their hold on this slippery peak of glory. From Icelandic owners, hopeless managers, hapless players, and a ground to rival the best of East German architecture, this is a marvellously mordant account of one fan's helpless obsession with a team that nearly always manages to let him down.
