I Don’t Have Time To Bleed – Robert Huth

June 25th, 2012 No comments

Here’s a new t shirt we’re working on.
The inspiration comes from a story recounted by Danny Higginbotham at the recent BBC Fighting Talk’s Big Day Out at the Britannia Stadium when he told the audience that Robert Huth had said “I Don’t Have Time To Bleed” when being attended to by Stoke City physiotherapist Dave Watson.

Summertime for Stokies – perfect shirts for perfect T shirt weather

Summertime for Stokies – perfect shirts for perfect T shirt weather

With the World Cup, The Potters Holidays and Father’s day on the near horizon we have put together a couple of designs that any Stoke City & England supporter will be proud to wear.

First up we have:-


Made in Stoke - on - Trent Kiln England

Made in Stoke - on - Trent Design

All self respecting Stokies do the “tip it over and see where it’s made” action when handling pottery. Sir Stanley Matthews was renowned for this on his frequent travels abroad. With this design there’s no need for people to tip you over because they will know exactly where you were born.

So what better way to declare your roots on the beach (or for the World Cup) this summer than this simple, does-what-it says-on-the-tin design.

A distinctive “maker’s stamp” declaring where you’re from – almost down to street level. The St. George roundel in the background  and the unmistakable symbol of Stoke – the bottle kiln in the middle.

100% Potteries – like the best ceramics!

The shirts are displayed below and on this weblink

All are available at


Next up is:-

Stoke – on – Trent SCFC – ENGLAND


Stoke - on - Trent England SCFC St George Stoke City

Stoke - on - Trent England SCFC St George's Cross Design

Club or Country? The dilemma every proud football fan faces – what is more important – especially when selecting your attire for the game down the pub this summer. Or maybe the same issue when picking your holiday attire?

Take the indecision away from the situation with this specially created design with Summer and the World Cup on the horizon. A distinctive “maker’s stamp” design declaring where you’re from and who you support – club AND Country. The St. George roundel in the background  and the initials SCFC in the quarters.

Tuncay Sanli meets Che Guevara and Tinchy Stryder

February 16th, 2010 No comments

What do you get when you cross a t shirt designer with a Turkish International footballing legend, a marxist revolutionary and a former University of East London student who had a UK Number one single in 2009?
A bizarre mix of t shirt designs, that’s what!

From Che Guevara to Tinchy Stryder, could our influences be wider??

Our TUNCHE design is a simple mix of Guevara

Che Guevara at the La Coubre memorial service.
Taken by Alberto Korda on March 5, 1960.

PLUS Tuncay

Another little known connection between Stoke – on – Trent and Tinchy Stryder is Jack Foster! Jack is the son of Author Stephen Foster, known for his excellent books on Stoke City, “She Stood There Laughing” “….And She Laughed No More”
Available at
Jack is pictured on the front of “She Stood There Laughing” and has since gone on to achieve fame in his own right through his music management career. His company is called “Takeover Entertainment” and he is co – manager of Tinchy Stryder.
Not bad for a Stokie living in Norwich!

Love Hate and Great

January 21st, 2010 No comments
Welcome to our third newsletter/ product update. We have been busy working on a new category called Love Stoke Hate …… that has 7 new designs. We also have 4 new designs based on players (The Great in our title) we haven’t covered yet. One of these is a legend on an international scale – the first true “international football superstar.”  There are also 3 designs that haven’t yet featured in a newsletter but have been available for a while plus another anti Vale for good measure. Have a read of our other news at the foot of the page too!    

“It’s A Thin Line Between Love and Hate”
It was Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders who wrote the above line, but why pretend? I totally disagree. I believe it’s a very  thick line, a line as wide as the River Trent itself. We all Love to Hate a team and we have covered more than a handful of  “the despised” in this newsletter. The “Love and Peace, Goodwill to all men” message of Christmas is over and done with for  another year, let’s get back to full on hate! It’s part of our passion that makes the Bearpit Great.  Why do we hate teams? The reasons are wide and varied. With Stoke & Vale both back where they belong does the hatred whither?  I don’t think so. Man U, does anyone really need an explanation why we hate them?  The other three major gloryhunter attractors are also given their own design along with a collective  “LOVE STOKE – HATE GLORYHUNTERS” design.  Wear these shirts with pride to show your Love of Stoke and the club you despise! One for the South Staffordshire Stokies completes the set with the Dingles having a design that includes two silver bullets!

Answers followed by the word off, on a postcard please to Port Vale FC, Hamil Road, Burslem, Stoke – on – Trent.


Wilkinson Stoke


Ooh Andy Andy, Andy Andy Andy Andy Wilkinson.

The most improved player since Stoke have been in the Premier League.

A few forwards have felt his sharpness recently so how better to celebrate his brilliance than a pack of blades bearing his name.



Tommy Sørensen


Thomas Løvendahl Sørensen born on the12th. of June 1976 in Fredericia, Denmark, better known to us Stokies as Ooohh, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy Sorensen.

His fantastic record of penalty saves for Stoke City this season as seen him become a real fans favourite and his presence between the sticks has made us one of the meanest defensive sides in the Premier League. 

The design we have used also recognises his success on an international level, where he will be defending the Danish goalmouth during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He has moved on from being Peter Schmeichel’s understudy to owning the position outright.




Dean Whitehead – apparently the “dury’s jury’s still out” but we appreciate what Dean brings to the team and honour him with a design based on another “marmite” character, Ian Dury (well his Blockheads any way!).

When we signed Dean I wrote that he could become another Steve Foley, a player that player’s love because he puts in the hard yards and lets them get on with their game, Foley was that type of player in Lou Macari’s successful Stoke City team, loved by the players but not cherished by the supporters.

I’m sure Dean will deliver and is constantly improving as the season progresses. So Jury, do you want to “hit him with your rhythm stick” or is he a “Reason to be Cheerful?”

God is 7 Sir Stanley Matthews





Never could this be a truer statement than when referring to the very first player to make a shirt number his own. The No. 7 worn on his back wasn’t required to identify Sir Stanley Matthews, he let his skill do the talking.

We* have condensed Mr. Black’s lyrics down to the statement to

“If Man is 5, then the devil is 6, then GOD is 7” and added the image of the world’s finest football statue.

The word God is used to frequently in the modern game but Sir Stan was a true footballing god. He was years before those pretenders to the throne, George Best, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish, Eric Cantona or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Who else could have a FA Cup Final named after him despite the same team’s centre forward (Stan Mortensen) getting a hat trick.

N.B. will make a donation of £1 for every shirt sold to the Sir Stanley Matthews Foundation. for more information about the foundation. 

*credit to Bunny and Mills!        

Matty Ezer Good

There’s a guy in the placeHe’s got a bittersweet face And he goes by the name of Matty Ezer Good  His friends call him Ezer and he is the main geezer   And he’ll vibe about the place    Like no other man could    He’s refined, sublime, he makes you feel fine     Though very much maligned and misunderstood     But if you know Ezer, he’s a real crowd pleaser     He’s ever so good, he’s Matty ezer Good            

Britannia Amplification

A representation of you – one of our great supporters.

Have a look at the controls on the amp.

Power 1 0

Roar On or Off

Tone – Quiet or Rowdy

One Volume control for each stand plus a master control.

Boothen, Seddon, J Smiths and South. n.b. The selection isn’t the traditional 1 to 10 but one more than the spinal tap 11 at 12th. Man.

The Inputs are Pride, Passion, History and Beer!

Classic amplifiers also carry an individual number tag, this one has the number 1863

Never Surrender

This could be the theme tune of Stoke City

Dave Grohl et al of the Foo Fighters could have written this about the Stoke City Mentality – this applies to both the team and us supporters. To quote Grohl’s former band Nirvana “Smells like Teen Spirit”

The lyrics include the lines

“What if I say I’m not like the others”

“What if I say that I Will Never Surrender”

Our inspiration for this design was this video at the end of the season awards.

It is a play on the Foo Fighters logo and the words “What If I Say I Will Never Surrender”


Stoke – on – Trent


The finest city coat of arms ever to be designed.  
The motto – “Vis unita fortior” and it’s Translation – “United Strength is Stronger” are both included on the shirt.
A representation of the six towns all bought together in 1925 to form The City of Stoke – on – Trent, although this crest was recognised on the 20th. March 1912 where the six towns united into a single County Borough.   

So what else have we been upto?

All Things Stoke & Beautiful


Steino - The Golden One
Our great stadium as seen in “plan” view. A simple, clean design that looks
fantastic on all colours. Wear this with pride.


I Love SCFC Stoke City Football Club
A simple but effective design that gives your personal display of affection to the
one (club) you Love.


+52 59 18.00 N

-2 10 32.00 W

May not mean much at first glance but put it into GPS SatNav and it will guide you to the best place on Earth, The Britannia Stadium. These are wrapped around our Brit Plan to make a striking design.


A nod to our history and how our year of formation may have been displayed at the time. MDCCCLXIII is of course the Roman Numerals for 1863.

Caution – I am the Potter’s Twelfth

Caution - I am the Potters Twelfth Man
If the health and safety police had their way then every fan would not be allowed into
the Brit. unless wearing this notice and ear defenders. Caution High Noise Levels – I AM THE POTTERS TWELFTH MAN.

Abdoulaye – Evolution

Abdoulaye Evolution Darwin
An Abdy lifewear classic. Disproving Darwin, 150 years after he came up with it! –
There is no Theory of Evolution. Only a list of creatures that Abdoulaye Faye has allowed to live.

Definitely City

Stoke Definitely City - Oasis definitely maybe tribute
Wear this and you might live forever.  A supersonic nod to Noel & Liam despite
their manc. roots. This is a classic design further improved by including two of the most important words in the English language. 


F*ck The Media

F*ck the Media
As that famous son of Ireland, Father Jack (from Father Ted) says “Feck the Media”.
Okay he probably didn’t say “the media”, or our shirt doesn’t mean Feck. We are Stoke and no matter what anyone says we work hard, play hard and get results. F*ck ’em.

Stokies Here

Stokies Here, Stokies There
A design for Stokies that reside in all corners of the world. We have had requests
for shirts from Australia, USA, Chile, Norway, Sweden an even Fegg Hayes. As the
Song goes, Stokies Here, Stokies There Stokies Every F*ckin where. Wherever you
are the Kiln image will remind of where your heart is.

Liam Lawrence by Potter 63

Liam Lawrence Stoke No. 7 - potter 63
As Liam signs a 4 year extension to his contract we have tweaked Potter 63’s wonderful painting of Lenny celebrating notching our first Premier League goal.
Keep the dog away this season Liam.

James Beattie by Potter 63

James Beattie 20 - Potter 63
James Beattie was TP’s best signing at the turn of 2009. His goals had fans talking of
him being an England player again, although I doubt if Fabio even knows where the Brit. is. Potter 63’s great piece of art has captured Beats in that pose we all love to see him in, celebrating a goal for the Mighty Potters. We have give
it the Stoketshirts treatment and added his name and squad number.

Austria Tour Shirts – Where Potters Dare

Where Potters Dare - Austria '09 Tour
by messrs Burton and Eastwood’s 1968 classic, this alternative Pre-Season 2009
shirt shows the locations of the Potters all-important warm-up matches and their
opponents. Any Stokies planning an assault on
the quiet mountainous nation of Austria will find the map invaluable and the “tour dates” will act as a timely reminder of where you’re supposed to be should you over indulge on “bier und schnitzel”

Austria Tour Shirts – The Hills are Alive

The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Stokies
The Sound of Austria 2009!  Remember Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music? For Julie read Liam. Well this year the Alps will be ringing to the Sound of Stokies!
Yes, it’s pre-season time again! July is here and once again Tony and the lads are off to the land of the Schnitzel for another gruelling week of ‘aard work in the mountains.

Fortress – Ian Dyer The Boothen End Bard

Fortress The Britannia - Ian Dyer
“The Britannia is packed to the rafters…”- the first line of Ian Dyer’s stirring tribute to the fantastic matchday atmosphere of the Brit – “Fortress”. 
Inspired by the imagery of Ian’s Poem we created our own take on “Fortress Britannia”. A hybrid Stadium entrance/castle wall to represent the fortress mentality that will no doubt welcome opposition teams and fans for many a season and embellished with the phrase “This is our Fortress – where no one shirks or hides”.


Stoke City F.C.      

Getting Ready for 2009-2010

The pre season speculation continues to rumble on. Talk of new signings with names such as
Scholes, Crouch, Cisse and O’ Neil linked with the club. Who’s going? Our Irish aces shirt has been de-listed and taken back to the drawing board now that Stephen Kelly has gone to Fulham.  Meanwhile Stokies head of in
search of the sun with a Stoketshirts T shirt in their case. Thought like “where’s that internet cafe when you need it?” “Is that text from my mate a windup or can we really get him in a Stoke shirt?” Is “Davesviews” just a front for all internet cafe owners to make a few quid?” Isn’t summer great. 

I am sure Sir Peter and Triffic
Tone won’t let us down and will get the right players who possess the “right DNA.” In Tony we trust.

Our heroes & legends newsletter had a couple of hitches with the
majority of you only getting the text version. Please bear with
us while we try to master these wonderful software programmes
that it ooh so easy to communicate (If only) this year.

onto it. See pics of the shirt here

Heroes, Legends & Classics:

Steino – The Golden One

Steino - The Golden OneWe were spoilt for choice with the many designs that we came up with for the Golden One so we decided to offer three of them! First up is THE GOLDEN ONE. It features Steino in his classic predatory pose having just unleashed another cracker. His famous number 9 and the text “The Golden One” also appear on the design. My recommendation is to have this on a red shirt


Steino Vertical

Steino VerticalOur second tribute to Earl Mark Sean Stein (as his mother christened him).Our less original naming convention of the design describes the layout. a vertical line of text proclaiming STEINO! along with Mark in his red and white stripes. Looks fantastic on a black shirt.


Steino Horizontal

Steino HorizontalAgain not the most inspiring name of a design but this simple duo-toned image captures all that is great about Steino!Simple, effective, and makes a striking impact. A goal ratio of better than 1 in every 2 games ensured that Steino made his Mark on all Stokies memories. Looks great on a red shirt.



SmithThe subject of this design needs no introduction or fanfare, so we’ll keep it simple like the design – SMITH.



Banks of England

Banks of EnglandBanks of England. The Safest pair of hands in the country. This is one Gordon that I would trust never to let anything get past him. A true Stoke City Legend and Hero. There aren’t many players who attract worldwide recognition and would have a game held in their honour some 40 odd years after finishing his career


Abdoulaye – L’esprit – White

Ab Faye - L'esprit WhiteUndoubtedly TP’s best signing from last season. This man has taken on the mantle of centre half cult heroes like Georgie Berry & Denis Smith before him. Again a difficult choice between designs so we have produced both! See below for a full translation.


Abdoulaye – L’esprit – Colour

Ab Faye - L'esprit ColourL’esprit in colour. The text in Abdoulaye Faye’s native tongue says ” Le coeur d’un lion.
l’âme du Senegal, l’esprit de Stoke.” Translated it means The heart of a lion,
The soul of Senegal, The Spirit of Stoke. I am sure we would all agree this text, which alternates in the red, gold and green colours of his countries flag,
captures all that Abdy is about.


Classics from the Lifewear store

After launching we are going through the process of transferring our Classic Lifewear range to the new store.

Here are two of those designs

Six Towns One Soul

Six Towns One SoulFeaturing a Potters kiln and the text Six Towns – One Soul. A statement similar to “vis unita fortior” in the respect that while the six towns maintain their individuality, when put together collectively we have a very strong identity of creativity and a philosophy of work hard, play hard.


Soul on Trent

Soul on TrentSoul on Trent – again features the Potters kiln and is a nod to the Northern Soul scene that Stoke – on – Trent was the hub of back in the late 60’s/ early 70’s. The essence of the Torch and Motown music drove the scene that has recently been revived with regular Northern Soul nights at lots of venues in the area.

Stoke City F.C.      

What a great season

A great season for all Stokies, proving the majority of pundits wrong. It’s been fantastic to see them all retreating back from their initial “worse than Derby” stance to brown nosing TP and his merry men. Enough
publicity oxygen has been given to the likes of Paddy Shower and Talk Shite, but don’t hold your breath; it won’t stop them from doing it again. Burnley next time?

What next for us? I fancy a few high profile players joining the Mighty Potters to help us maintain our Premier League status and to become an established club at this level. Who would have thought that 2 years ago?

Finally, it has been said a few times but once more won’t hurt. Thank you all for playing your part and making us the loudest fans in  the Prem. We are LOUD,
We are PROUD and WE ARE
. It’s been a great experience following Stoke this year. Let’s keep it up for 2009 -2010 and beyond!

Thanks For Everything!

Just a short note to thank all our fellow Stokies for your help, custom and support over the past few months. When we get a positive review or see someone wearing one of our shirts it makes it all worth while. If you’ve got any suggestions for designs that you’d like to see us do, or if you think we could improve on something we’re doing, or even if you just have a question about what we do please don’t hesitate to contact us on
