There are few places I detest more in this world than Stoke.
Anyone who has ever had the misfortune to visit will tell you what an utterly depressing place it is.
I've actually met and known some decent Stoke fans but there is an element of knuckledraggers who probably see that thug Ryan Shawcross (NOT THAT KIND OF PLAYER) as a role model.
The fact that their ground is open in all corners and on a bit of a hill adds to the challenges games up there create, what with Tony Pubis playing such outdated but just-about-effective long ball football.
Arsenal have lost there a few times since they came up again, but we won a couple of years back when Aaron Ramsey had his ankle snapped...
