A surprise, wouldnt think we'd want to let him go, unless they've decided he's never going to be good enough.  Played a handful of games and cost the club a load of money. 

Not really a surprise, it’ll do him good to get a season of football under his belt. We’ve got 3 keepers with not much between them And there won’t be many takers for the other two due to Wages. Makes sense to get Gunn out for a year.

It is a loan to get 1st team gametime, the alternative is him likely to play 0 league games for us this season. If he does well perhaps he'll get a second chance at Saints. I wouldn't completely write off his Saints future quite yet.

Think he was referring to Nixon's second tweet suggesting that there will be an option to buy.

Gunn is not their number 1 keeper so will more be on the bench more often than not, which unfortunately will not give him much more game time. Their no. 1 is Davies the Wales national keeper and has been performing well according to Stokes fans forum.

Tremendous loan move if he wanted to go from a No.3 to No.2.

They are still in the league cup aren’t they, which may give him one game.

Better than being namedropped as the 9-0 keeper forever.

Yeah.  Think they are.

Had the match on in the background prior to Gunn coming on. A mix of poor defending and Gunn being too slow to come off his line was the fault for Swansea's second goal. Gunn ended up catching Palmer, missing the ball completely when coming for a punch, Palmer just had to get the ball on target. He also almost gifted Swansea a goal earlier in the match as he had to stop a back pass from going in with his hand after slipping up (indirect free kick given in the box, blocked by the defence). Had a search of his name on Twitter to get Stoke fans' verdict of his debut and they're writing him off already. Won't have helped with his confidence.

Kept a clean sheets as Stoke won 1-0 against Rotherham. 

Rotherham didn’t have a shot on target though according to the Skysports app.

Rotherham didn’t have a shot on target...

We could loan them Fraser Forster, as long as they pay his wages in full.

Lots of problems with that. The window is closed and Stokes other keepers will be back by the time it does open. Stoke couldn't get remotely close to Forster's wages.
