    you got back quick 🙂

  2. Stephen Foster says:

    I floated on air : )

  3. Ron Phippen says:

    Did you go?? TV showed lots of empty seats – surprised at what looked a low turnout. Whatever, still a fantastic day and great result. What about Sir Stanley Sidibe – awesome. A great performance, made more so as all could see this on TV. ron_in_norwich

  4. Stephen Foster says:

    Hi Ron, how r u doing?!

    We had guests over for the weekend which made the decision for me – it was a shame to have missed it live though, it was one of the all time great days – the first time we’ve EVER beat that lot in a cup competition. (I think I’ve been to all the other Ties, maybe it was my staying away that helped do it : )

  5. Jonny says:

    Yeah, well done – at last Whitehead is showing some promise for one so average.
    No doubt, your team of Sunderland cast-offs will be shouting Bobbie Stokoe, Bobby Kerr, Kate Adie, James Bolam, Dave Stewart – your boys are gonna take one hell of a beating next Saturday.
    And I’d have to agree – are you coming up to the SoL by the way?

  6. makemeadiva says:

    Our resident Gooner watched the second-half with me and then threw up – literally.

    Hats off to Pulis – I have never, ever seen Wenger look so green. Not bad for a match in a cowshed 😉

  7. OS says:

    Ahem. I was there. Eat your heart out winger. Pulis is our king. 😉

    GGOS.

  8. Stephen Foster says:

    Pulis instills a triffic aard-working ethic into Makem cast-offs though, Jonny. That’s his genius : )

    I think it’s a Monday night match & might be on Sky … I’d like to but am away in Cheltenham watching horses on the Sat so am not sure …

  9. Stephen Foster says:

    Was it our dish of revenge served froid that produced le chunder?

    That cowshed represents the nice part of Stoke, btw, ask OS…

  10. Stephen Foster says:

    Being there is overated, it doesn’t really allow you to partake of le creme de soup avec le pain et le fromage bleu + une verre or two du vin and aussi to regard le fifteen slow mo replays of les goals, all le une, le deux and le trois of them plus the one ruled out pour le Thierry Henry du main.

  11. calvininjax says:

    Let’s complete the full roster:

    Bob Wilson
    Pat Rice,
    Bob McNab,
    Peter Storey
    Frank McClintock,
    Peter Simpson
    George Armstrong
    George Graham
    Jon Radford
    Ray Kennedy
    Charlie George

    Rache ist süß, even if it did take 39 years!

    PS Who is that awful man in the baseball cap? 😉

  12. makemeadiva says:

    Heaven forfend that OS think I am being rude about Stoke (or cowsheds).

    Jesus was born in one after all!

    Seriously, I was glad to see Stoke win, notwithstanding the OH’s pain. The Gunners looked intimidated, Arsene was outgunned and that noise was amazing 🙂

  13. Daftburger says:

    Yes we’re going to win the Cup this year……………..who have we got in the next round?

    Bugger! 😦

  14. colin says:

    You forgot the fella that used to be ‘Lofty.’

  15. Stephen Foster says:

    Indeed, but it’s a select list, though. There’s that that clown Piers Morgan for a start, and I feel sure Angus Deyton and all his mates must be Gooners…

  16. Stephen Foster says:

    That list is horrid, Calvin. It’s taken me all day to absorb the full horror of it.

    I did that when I got back. Not the same ingredients. Me and Swiss and all the massive and Jasper had a roast beef dinner while we celebrated again by watching the recording. 🙂

    “Heaven forfend that OS think I am being rude about Stoke (or cowsheds).”

    No probs. 😉

    Aktewally, there as a ground that had a stand called ‘The Cowshed’. I’m not sure but I think it was ‘uddersfield. Pun intended. 😉

    GGOS.

  18. makemeadiva says:

    You are right about ‘uddersfield – I have found a wordpress blog called a Waltz in the Cowshed.

    OS – that’s what I learned today and if you were always my teacher I doubt I’d be texting under the table 🙂
