Stoke City 3-1 Wrexham FA Cup 3rd round
At one nil down I did think ‘here we go again…’ losing to lower league teams. Luckily a late goal surge courtesy of Arnie and two from Stephen Ireland saved our blushes. Wrexham deserved a draw really although not complaining! Fourth round draw is on Monday 5th January.
Transfer wise we are set to sign German international and centre-half Philipp Wollscheid on loan until the end of the season. There would then be an option to sign on a permanent deal in the summer if he impresses and he gets a taste for oatcakes 😉 This could mean the end of Robert Huth’s time at Stoke though.
Elsewhere Wilson Palacios could join Brighton on loan and we are again linked to QPR’s Junior Hoilett. We were linked to him in the summer, mainly as Mark Hughes brought him over to the UK.
