I see draw written all over it.
A team that can't score but defence superbly.

You see Arsenal scoring?
I don't and we may end up with four 0-0 on the trot.




...Gervinho........Van Persie.......Santos

AGain, OX is not ready for a physical and kicking team like Stoke. His closed control and penchance to dribble pass 2 or 3 defenders will just invite cnut like SHawcross to dive in with both set of studs showing.

Van Persie is on a blip, and may score no more this season;
Gervinho is short of form, short of confidence in front of goal; who else can score now?

Ramsey? (Sm22)(Sm22)(Sm22)(Sm22)

There again, I am always wrong in my prediction - a Stoke win? grinning smiley

How about we leave it up to the old farts?

rosicky and benayoun

and vermaelen is scoring better this year than he is defending.

0-0 is about right from my perspective. We currently lack the cutting edge in the final 3rd of the field. Without the creativity, we will have to rely on setpieces to score. Kos is overdue on a goal from a corner.

If we can't beat a Stoke team who haven't got nothing to play for, it would say everything about our team. Stoke have been useless in the last few months. No excuses.
