Stoke chairman Coates: We're not long ball merchants

Stoke City chairman Peter Coates believes they've been wrongly tagged a long ball team.

"I don't think people give us credit for the football we play," he said. "We played West Brom the other week and got a fantastic result and I thought we played better football than West Brom.

"You get stereotyped with what you do, long balls or short balls, but the game is about different styles.

"We can't all play like Arsenal but it is a game that accommodates variety and that is good I think."
