Stoke at home - I will take that!

Stoke at home - I will take that!

With all the build-up to the Everton game, and the reaction to this defeat, the fact that the league cup draw was made just ahead of this game has seen this missed somewhat...

Although I am sure that you are well aware of this by now, we drew Stoke at home - a draw that I must admit I am happy enough with as it keeps the league cup dream alive!

I have, maybe jokingly so, said to a few people that 'we will win the league cup this season', but I think we now have a 'decent' chance of making the quarter finals, and with the draw seeing some 'big guns' drawn against each other and other 'fancied teams' given tricky-ish draws you can never say never...

Stoke will probably one of the hardest ties actually, they have great home form ^ and have a great support. Also they have steel wielded into their team so will not even be ok to play against. This has 'tough' written all over it...

I can't see us veatinb the ladies team at the moment but we have had some luck with a home draw so maybe we can get sone luck with refereeing decisions and defenders and strikers score goals i.e. doing what they get paid for. I don't even mind if one lot do the other lots jobs as long as someone does some defending and someone does some scoring. This will be a tough match

I wish I could get to this, especially after the dubious 'handball' at their place last time round. Still with any luck we'll be in the next round.
