Walters hits out at Stoke's festive fixtures

Jon Walters hit out at the Premier League's festive fixture list after Stoke were made to trek 700 miles in a matter of days.

Stoke were hard done by the fixture list, with a 5-1 defeat in the 386-mile round trip to Newcastle followed yesterday by a 3-0 loss at Tottenham.

Got to say fair play to all the Stoke fans who travelled to both away games at Christmas time and never stopped singing! #hardcore.

Also a big well done to whoever sorted out the fixtures over this period!

It was nice for every team who were at home on the 26th to be home again on the 28th/29th.

That's a fair way of doing things for fans and players alike who have to travel length and breadth of the country at Christmas time!!
