"In his brief appearance, Jones had hit the bar and looked in the mood to show why he is rated a Didier Drogba in the making and why Sunderland were wrong to cast doubt on his attitude.
While Stokies were celebrating his arrival last Wednesday, nay-sayers from the North-East were questioning his consistency.
The word from Mackems was that the 25-year-old is as dynamic as Drogba one week, Stan Ogden the next.
We have heard all this before about Ricardo Fuller and yet Tony Pulis has moulded him into a fantastic striker who has served the club with impressive consistency for four years.
Forget lazy, Jones would have had to be crazy to sign for Stoke thinking he could risk the wrath of the City boss.
Like an explorer stepping over the bones of his failed predecessors, Jones only had to observe James Beattie's empty parking space and Dave Kitson cleaning the toilets to appreciate that strikers take on Pulis at their peril.
No, the smart money is on Jones flourishing at a club where he will be appreciated and where the team will be built around him – once he is fit again."
So there you go lads. All you need is 14 minutes to make a judgement. And Tony Pulis is the guy to acheive what Roy Keane and Steve Bruce have failed to.
Maybe he's right. Maybe Kenwynne Jones at Stoke will turn into Didier Drogba. Only problem is that if he does, he won't be there long.
