I know they had a good win on Saturday but looking at their remaining fixtures i dont think this lot are out of it yet

I think that we've probably got enough points already, but yep another win would be nice.

So yes we're in it but we're in a pretty strong position.

I must agree with you there (sadly  ;))

It would need a complete squad melt down for Stoke NOT to stay clear....

We actually need Stoke to strongly for the remainder of the Season as four of their games are against the Dingles, Seals, Blackpool & Wigwam.......

Wouldn't mind you beating Bolton, I actually would quite like to see how you lot would do in the Europa League. I'm sure a fair few european teams will relish the chance to come to the Britannia... at night... in the rain... ;D

As Albion overtake Stoke in the Premiership, I've got to say that our beautiful passing game bodes well for our future. Certainly is eye-candy compared to Stoke's "delap-i-dated" brand of hoofball.

It was all just a matter of time, really...

I bet those Stoke fans look at us thinking 'if only we could play football like that'.

To be fair, Robert Huth, is an OK center back and his surname certainly fits the club well. :D

Hooooooof...

I'll be backing either team big time should they get through and face Manchester United in the final.

Your fans were absolutely slating the fact that your football hasn't changed at all after we played you a few games back.

True we were going through a shocking run of form and it has a lot to do with the fact that Etherington wasn't fully fit and Carew had come into the team and hadn't gelled with Jones. However Etherington is back fully fit and TP is now playing 2 wingers again and Jones and Walters have really hit it off together.

There seemed to have been a change of mentality after the FA cup win against West Ham that we do have good players (don't deny it we do have some good players ;) ) at the club and we can do things and we are capable of upsetting the big clubs.

Plus the weather is a lot nicer which for some strange reason make Jones play better

Cant say I will be wishing you on. Id like Bolton to win it I think as they play better football. what I saw from Stoke against ourselves was shocking.

Some of your goals recently have been very good with Etherington and Walters but it is similar to what your type of side do. If it isnt long ball - it's all about pace down the channels - one of the reasons English players have fell behind the rest of the world technically in recent years.

If you win though congratulations - it would be a strike for the "small teams" as we so often get called nowadays. Shame you have to play the semi final at Wembley and not Villa Park or Old Trafford - it wrecks the magic of the cup just because the FA want to pay off their debt on the stadium.

Yeah, the diving Jones and generally boring hoofball doesn't really lend itself to much enthusiasm. You are League One on Anabolic Steroids, lots of muscle, low brows and misspelled tattoos.

Stoke have managed 3 years in the Premiership, yes the football is a bit agricultural most of the time, but they have played more football this year. Pullis has done a good job with them, they have their critics, but they have had a winning style.
I think that they have been rumbled in recent weeks, certainly by us at the Brittania, good luck in the semi, rather Stoke win than the badge kisser.

Looks like they are still going to be 'a footballing team' next season too;

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is planning a bid for tough-tackling Galatasaray defender Servet Cetin, whose Ayibogan nickname translates as "a man who could choke a bear".

If Stoke played on the ground they would probably be relegated this season, they play to their strengths as does every other team in the division they have had 3 good seasons in the Premierleague and now look forward to a semi final of the FA Cup. Maybe if we played to our strengths in previous seasons (e.g Mowbray) we could have enjoyed their success.

Slate them all you want but they are doing now what we aim to be doing in 2 years!
