League Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1972

Good, solid performance and win for us last night. It now means our first League Cup semi-final appearance since 1972, when of course Stoke beat Chelsea in the final. Even Phil Bardsley scored and managed to stay on the pitch! Only downside was Peter Crouch’s injury, which looked to be a hamstring and it may sideline him for the upcoming festive fixtures.

January transfer window is looming with a defensive central midfielder top of Stoke’s shopping list. Likely to see a few leaving on loan or on permanent deals particularly Stephen Ireland who didn’t even make the bench last night. Odemwingie could leave on loan, as he is injured currently and sadly seems to have not got back to his electric pace of old before last season’s long term injury. Bardsley and Steve Sidwell are other possible departures.
