Pennant: Tony Pulis is still Tweet on me

Jermaine Pennant insists he is not in the dog-house at Stoke for Tweeting but is anxious to nail down a regular berth.
Potters' winger Pennant, 29, moaned on Twitter he had "never ever been a full-back in my life" after the recent 2-0 loss at Wigan.
Pennant claims he has avoided a carpeting from no-nonsense Stoke boss Tony Pulis over his outburst.
But the ace, a sub at Villa on Monday, is getting frustrated at not playing more in his preferred position.
Pennant said: "The gaffer came out and understood what I was trying to say.
"He was fine about it.
"In the Wigan game we didn't push on as much, we were doing a lot of defending and so was I.
"My best position is pushing forward and getting crosses in.
"But we were on the back foot a lot and we didn't play the greatest football.
"I'm still here, no-one's said anything about leaving.
"Hopefully next season I'll get that No.7 shirt.
"I'd love to get a regular place.
"I've still got another year on my contract and then another year can kick in after that."
