Chelsea 1-0 Stoke City FA Cup 4th Round
Poor performance all round from Stoke as we lacked passion, attacking threat and Walters was woeful with his crossing and giving possession away. It’s a cup game yet in the last ten minutes we did a defensive throw in the Chelsea half and never seemed like scoring. Short FA Cup run this season then although beating Chelsea given our away record was never going to be on the cards. What concerns me more is the lack of pace in attack and the commitment of some of the players.
Sunderland on Wednesday is a real six pointer and I fear we don’t have the fight in the team to beat the drop. I really hope I am wrong but a few players look as though they lack confidence and/or care, plus Wilson has dropped in form the past couple of games, hurry back Mr Huth!
