Why? Why? Why Delilah? No one seems totally sure why Potters' fans belt out the old Tom Jones classic – when anyone asks they’re usually met with the response "Why not?”
So while there appears to be no significant reason behind the singing of this Sixties classic, everyone seems to agree that it was started in the 1980s by a supporter named TJ. We’re not able to verify that, but we can say that anyone who's heard Potters fans belt it out at The Britannia has to doff their caps to them for creating a classic (and totally daft) piece of random football culture.
Heroes? Well obviously England’s World Cup winning keeper Gordon Banks and the city’s favourite son, Sir Stanley Matthews must be high on the list for most supporters.
Perhaps though a special mention should go to ex-manager Tony Pullis? Sacked in 2005 (allegedly for refusing to sign cheap foreign players) and reinstated a year later to loud protests from a small section of fans, Pullis took the club into the English Premier in 2008. The first time The Potters had competed in the top flight for 23 years.
He and his team were not everyone’s cup of tea – certainly not Arsene Wenger’s anyway. However, in playing a high-tempo, traditional British style that most teams couldn't cope with, the Welshman firmly established The Potters as a top flight team and he took them to the FA Cup Final in 2011.
