Stoke Fan Podcast's 'Jon Walters Is Great' Twitter Thread Will Make Your Day

Stoke Fan Podcast's 'Jon Walters Is Great' Twitter Thread Will Make Your Day

Having said his goodbyes and received some lovely tributes from his former teammates after doing so, it's clear to see how much of an impact Jon Walters made at Stoke City.

During his time at the club he scored goals, infuriated opponents, and literally shed blood for the shirt on numerous occasions, so it's easy to see how the supporters at the Britannia Stadium fell in love with him, especially considering that we, as Ireland fans, did the exact same.

But we get to enjoy Big Jon doing his thing in a green jersey for another while yet. At Stoke, the fans have to say goodbye to a man who played a significant role in the club's history, so it's an emotional time for the supporters. The end of an era, if you will.

Thankfully, the superbly named Stoke fan podcast 'Wizards of Drivel' have done an outstanding job of getting across just how special Walters is to them with a Twitter thread dedicated to his greatness.

For those unaware, a 'Twitter thread' is replying to your own tweets with further information to create a long scrolling post on a platform intended for brief thoughts. They've become very popular among football fans, with the best example being the thread on why Sunderland are a total disaster, but this one is right up there.

Outstanding. While Shane Long may have an argument regarding Walters defeating the Germans single-handedly, we'll let it slide as they used the photo of Walters refusing to allow any more football to be played, a moment that is close to our hearts.

We loved the tribute, and it turns out the man himself did too.

If you're a Stoke fan, we're sure you are already familiar with their work, but check out Wizards of Drivel on Twitter here, as they are great craic. It's just a shame that Stoke's once thriving Irish connection now appears to have fizzled out.
