Stoke City are so physical that you would think they are playing rugby and not football. Their football mantra is to lump the ball forward and hope that someone can maybe get a head to it. The lanky Peter Crouch is their centre forward and that should tell you something about their style. All they do is hoof it ahead and pray for a goal. Alternatively, they take super long throws ins and break opponents’ feet. They have no business being in the English top flight!
