Hvar er Björgólfur Björgólfsson - hann ætti að kaupa eitt af stóru liðunum þarna úti.

As an Icelander, I'll be pretty sad to see the club go into the hands of others, especially Norwegians!!!!. However, I've attended 2 games at Stoke in the past 3 years and I have enjoyed it very much. When Gudjon left it seems the interest in Iceland died down sadly. Stoke is a great club who deserve to be in the PremierLeague.
