This weekend's match against Chelsea was scintillating. The BBC called it a 'showcase for the Premiership', amongst many other garlands. Rather than kicking the opposition off the field and scoring from Rory's freakishly long throws, Stoke played magnificent, exuberant and stylish football. It truly was like watching Brazil (and not the mercenary Brazil scum who played recently in Grozny (Chechnya) at the behest of its insane dictator).
a thunderous contest, played out to din from the stands, and managers and players were in agreement that neither side had deserved to lose.
Roll on the FA Cup semi-final.
