Don't know who their leading scorer was (of the 21 scored), but he must have been pretty good when all the action would have been at the other end.  Smiley

Stoke offering free away travel to every game again. Wonder what this costs them?

If I ever came into a decent whack of cash, the one STFC related thing I'd do is heavily subsidise away travel.

Spanish FA force La Liga to abandon Friday and Monday fixtures because "Spanish football fans do not want games on these days". Imagine that, a Football Association that puts fans' enjoyment of the game above the interests of TV money.
