PORTSMOUTH 1 STOKE CITY FC 2
Went out last night fearing the worst.Stoke a goal down,and not looking particularly likely to stage any sort of comeback.
After two glasses of bubbles travelled to Chester for a friend's birthday celebration not knowing the result.Quick conversation with the young wine waiter,turned out to be particularly attentive,and voila between pourings he came up with the marvellous final result.Icing on the cake of a brilliant night out!!!
Somewhat lagged this morning so not much to say.What a resilient team our magical Welsh manager has put together.One none down at halftime,they strike back early after the break through Huth's superb header,then wait until,once again, the odds are stacked against them - Wilko back in the hutch,unjustly as far as I can make out - to nick the points in added on time with a goal from that prolific scorer Salif Diao.
What a team ! A record 10 match unbeaten run....three more points toward survival...and I'm sure I heard Alan Hansen say Arsenal might not get anything at Stoke next week....
Died and gone to Heaven three times at least last night...and the Jameson's rounded things off nicely.
Dare I say it...its fun being a Stokie at the moment.Long may it last.
