Match of the Week – Hartlepool Utd v Kidsgrove Athletic

Start of a regular feature, choosing a match that is a bit different. This weekend Kidsgrove Athletic (average home attendance 134) face an away trip to Hartlepool United (average home attendance 3,301) in the fourth qualifying round of FA Cup. The winner gets a place in the first round proper – something Kidsgrove have never achieved to date.

Stoke fans will remember Hartlepool beating us 2-0 in the FA Cup third round back in 2009. Not one of our better years in the FA Cup!

Be great to see Kidsgrove progress, however I think Hartlepool’s higher league status (they are currently eighth in the Nation League) will see them win 3-1.

Oh well our FA Cup adventure for this season is over… Good to see Peter Crouch score but second half we lost our way a bit and would have been better with Jerome on earlier.

Back to the league and lets go for a top 10 finish!

Come on Stoke!

Big game tomorrow the QF of the FA Cup against Liverpool. I’d be happy with a draw and beat them on the replay given Gerrard’s recent hatrick.

Diego Arismendi has joined Huddersfield Town on loan, shame as he would have been ideal against Liverpool.

My thoughts and many others I am sure are with Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba who collapsed during the FA Cup game against Spurs this evening. Hope he pulls through, at time like this doesn’t matter who you support it is the person that counts.
