Stoke City Has 50 Percent Possession For The First Time In Three Years

Stoke City are a team that are infamous for playing a direct and rigid style. They do not play anything that resembles pretty passing football and there are regularly matches in which they only have 40 percent of the possession, but are the far superior team. Still, you would think that a team who managed to avoid relegation for three consecutive years would have a majority of the possession once in a while, right? Nope.
