`A whirlwind’ – Michael O’Neill anticipates first meeting with Stoke City fans



Michael O’Neill can’t wait for his first meeting with supporters since taking charge at Stoke City.

O’Neill is on the panel for tonight’s Fans’ Forum at the bet365 Stadium along with vice chairman John Coates and chief executive Tony Scholes.

And he comes into the event on the back of Saturday’s 5-1 home win over Hull and with Stoke’s survival prospects never looking brighter after reaching their highest league position of the season.

“It’s been a whirlwind since I came to the club,” O’Neill confesses. “At times my feet haven’t touched the ground – and it’s always nicer to do these events after a win.

“I’m looking forward to it and hopefully we can give an indication to supporters of where we see this team developing.

“We’ve taken the club from bottom of the league to 17th now.

“We’re still far from out of trouble, but we want to continue to push forward between now and the end of the season.”

His vice chairman and chief executive conducted a similar meeting with supporters last April in Delilah’s Bar.

Tonight’s event will be compered again by Steve Buxton and will be attended by up to 300 supporters in the Waddington Suite.

Topics under discussion are likely to include Championship survival, attendances, coronavirus, injuries, signings, sales and Financial Fair Play.
