Stoke City need to get themselves a new manager and fast now with them at real risk of getting cut adrift near the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship.
The Potters have really struggled for form this season and that cost Nathan Jones his job with them right at the bottom of the league.
They’ve not managed to get someone in to replace him, meanwhile, but that is not from the want of trying.
Indeed, the Potters have now made an approach to Michael O’Neill and the IFA to see if he’ll leave his job in charge of Northern Ireland:

This has got many talking, so let’s take a look at some of the reaction to this breaking news from various fans:
no brainer for stoke, but why would he want to take a team fighting for relegation.

Stoke really going downhill
— Jeremy MUFC (@jeremymufc20) November 7, 2019
He's too good of a coach for Stoke.

Very very good!!

He’s done a good job with Northern Ireland and it remains to be seen whether or not he is willing to walk away from that and go to a Stoke side that is really looking rudderless at this current moment.
