We always beat West Brom!
Stoke city host West Brom this Saturday, and as everybody knows... We always beat West Brom.
The Hawthorns hadn’t really been a happy hunting ground for The Potters over the years after receiving a couple of massive defeats including a 4-1 loss in 86/87 and a 6-0 in 88/89, however the 92/93 season produced a vital win for Stoke.
The Baggies had been NINE points clear of Stoke early in the season before coming to the Victoria Ground and losing a classic game 4-3, a result which had kick-started Stoke’s entire season.
In the return fixture Lou Macari’s Potters were in irresistible form, winning seemingly week after week and had gone 20 league games without a defeat, while West Brom were doing all they could to hang onto our coat-tails. It had all the hallmarks of a classic promotion encounter.
Mark Stein scored the winner that day at The Hawthorns in a 2-1 victory to mark an away trip many Stokies would remember for years to come.
Is this your favourite memory of fixtures v West Brom?!
