Stoke City in Cup Final

Tell Me A Story - Stoke City

Hard to believe, but Stoke City - my home-town, as well as home-town to Robbie Williams, is about to fight it out in the FA cup final.

Stoke on Trent has been famous for many things in the past, not least, high quality tableware, but for Stoke City to be in the FA cup final is quite an incredible achievement. Hopefully the FA cup will soon sit in Stoke City and bring fame from that direction too.

Sir Stanley Matthews, CBE (1 February 1915 – 23 February 2000) was an English footballer who both started and ended his career at Stoke City. He is often regarded as one of the greatest players of the English game - and would be chuffed to death if he just knew.

Well done lads - go for it. Up with Stoke City. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
