Stoke City 0-1 Man City (The FA Cup 4th round)

After the past three seasons reaching at least the QF of the FA Cup going out today was a bitter disappointment, especially as Man City beat us in the 2011 final. We were average today in a typical drab cup tie.

Very few positives for us and Ryan Shotton was awful again – losing possession, some woeful crosses. Great to see a local lad in the team but I am afraid he is a Championship level player.

We need some proper fullbacks otherwise we are going to get dragged to the bottom of the table as defensively we look shocking since we beat Liverpool on Boxing Day. Less than a week to go in the January transfer window and little sign of new additions. Kenwyne Jones could yet move to Swansea with possibly Danny Graham coming the other way, unless Sunderland get him first.

Wigan next – gulp!
