There is one argument
that has taken the soccer world by storm: Can Barcelona
win on a cold, windy, night at The Britannia Stadium, home of Stoke City?
Andy Gray (talked about on the Blue before
) when he said: “I don’t know if Barcelona have ever gone to a place like the Britannia Stadium and suffered the kind of onslaught from Tony Pulis’ team of long throws and free-kicks or been up to a place like Blackburn and been beaten up by their long ball into the box.”
There has certainly been analysis
of this thorny question
Of course, Stoke is in the Europa league this year. If they were to win the competition and advance to a Champions league spot, we might actually see this fixture.
