Back To The Future Top Corner

At least he has the bottle to prove if he can do it on a cold wet night in Stoke...

We're not sure how, but Stoke City have gone from Jon Walters and Peter Crouch to having five Champions League winners and a load of fancy-dan players.

Their most recent addition might just be the most shocking, with former Bayern Munich man, Xherdan Shaqiri moving to the Potters for a club record fee and leaving the footballing world gobsmacked! 

The Swiss international had won the Champions League with the German side just two years ago, but after losing his place, left for Italy and has now taken the natural progression to moving to sunny Staffordshire... 

It doesn't really make sense to anyone, unless you're Shaqiri's agent who will get paid a load and some Stoke City fans who are happier than a kid on Christmas. 

What does make sense, is if you look at Shaqiri's career in... reverse! 

Maybe the 23-year-old will see this and regret his entire career choice up until now... or maybe he'll love supply big Jon Walters with loads of headers...
