What Pardew should do against Stoke City
Following the 2-0 defeat against Southampton on Sunday, anything I could possibly say about the midweek matchday against Stoke City has already been said many times before.
I would prefer Pardew not once again stuck with 4-4-2 formation while playing away from home against a team playing with five in midfield and with our midfield containing two lightweights, Ferguson and Anita.
