The dates are Tuesday 30th March and Weds 7th April

Yes because Wigan bring so much to the Premier League, entertaining football, great fans, memorable games, oh wait.....

I bet you're not allowed on the beautiful, carpet-like pitch.

The 30th is Tuesday, ds2's brithday on Saturday and hes the 27th :oops:

pretty cool.....................shame about the team

Infact Leeds in the third division gave Scum a better game than WIgan ever have in the Premier League!

Only way people would go to that stadium was if you built a road through it!!

No offence, but I don't think a Leeds fan has the right to take the pee out of anyone else's team

Think that is great for people, no matter who the club is. If only it was Ewood.

The correct day/dateTuesday March 30 is shown (not Thursday 30), when you use the pulldown to select a date.

No, it's called being successful - not that you'd know what that's all about as a Stoke fan!:w00t::whistling:

And you coming from Birmingham would?

How do you know which team I support? That's my current location, I could be from anywhere in the country and support any club in or outside of Birmingham!

I'll forgive you though, being from Blackburn.

well why dont you tell us which souless team you support??? you wont feel the pride i feel every time stoke go out on that field, knowing where we came from, i support stoke as i have been bought up that way, you dont choose your team - your bought up with the team,

anyway wigan are succesful, they came from the depths to get where they are today, success is relative, and over recent seasons we have been very successful, everyone wrote us off last season and we proved you all wrong, and again this season too.

not forgetting the fact we are debtless, and could teach alot of the 'bigger' clubs alot about how to run a football club and also how to support their football club*

* OFFICIALLY THE LOUDEST FANS IN THE COUNTRY.

im proud to be a potter and always have been.

not near me - but great deal - heat added

again??? in english

Hot.... Nice deal for Wigan fans....

+ Rep Any post that gets the banter going deserves some rep... always amuses me...

....especially when Leeds fans are daring to criticise Premiership teams.... I mean, come on, they get a result against Man United but decide to end their season there and then.... Beckfords head has been turned and now they will be lucky to make the playoffs... and we all know how they perform in those!

.... then theres the Stoke fans who want to teach other Premiership Clubs what its all about... hmm... Lets make all the Premiership one dimensional and rely on a long throw... it would be so entertaining... I am sure the noise levels are so great at Stoke because the fans are screaming at the players to do someting interesting with the ball for once...

Nah, I will stick to watching Micky Arteta and the rest of the school of science playing beautiful football and giving everything they have in an attempt to bring European football to Goodison every year.

Says on the webpage that the tours are now fully booked. As you'd expect though with this being posted a few days ago

Nice find though Andy, great for the kids whilst off for Easter

it seems you have bought in to the media crap about us playing long ball all the time, :roll:

its also funny that other teams moan about us using a weapon (the long throw) even though, if all the other teams in the prem had someone who could throw like rory they would use it.

i assume you didnt see the goal of the season from fuller on saturday???

we will see you in may, expect a thrashing

1) Yes, I have bought into that media talk, because its true (see 3)

2) True, they would use the long throw as a weapon, but would they rely on it as much as Stoke appear to?

3) Goal of the season??? Maybe Stokes Goal of the season!!! , Yes I did see, nice work by Fuller but you may want to watch it again.... this time take note of how the ball got to Fuller in the first place.... a long hooked ball from the half way line.... (makes a change from a long throw I suppose).

4) Expect a thrashing??? Can I just wake you up long enough to tell you the last 3 Premiership Results between our clubs...

...Goodison Park 4th October 2009 = Everton 1 Stoke 1
Goodison Park 14th March 2009 = Everton 3 Stoke 1
Brittania Stadium 14th September 2008 = Stoke 2 Everton 3...

...Thats 2 defeats and a draw you have managed against us previously...

...also, your current Home form for the last 6 games is not good (6 points out of a possible 18)...

...So with all due respect, I am not likely to expect a thrashing really, am I?...

no it isnt true, also our last 2 defeats have been against arsenal, with 10 men and spurs with ten men, so dont worry yourselves about that, im also very aware of the previous 3 games because i was at all 3, we will beat you, mark my words, we have no pressure what so ever now, like i say you have bought the media claptrap about our long ball game, we do mix it about a bit, ill give you that, but we also play some great football, its all about what works for you AND MIXING IT ABOUT WORKS FOR US. check your facts about the long ball AND long throw, see matty etherington has got the most assists for us and hes not a hoofer, infact matty has got more assists than any of your players. i rest my case

This is so funny, you know you cannot win this argument, but you persist in feeding me more ammunition lol....

Are you trying to tell me that you were only allowed to start a Premiership match with 10 players, or are you telling me that your side lacks discipline and cannot finish a match without players getting sent off???

Surely if you were at the three previous fixtures against Everton and have seen first hand that your team only got 1 point out of a possible 9 points, why are you so confident this time???

As for Matty Etherington, granted he has 8 Premiership assists... though please note that he is a midfielder.... Leighton Baines is only 1 assist behind with 7.... and he is a left back!!!...

To be honest, its a waste of your time comparing individual player statistics because common sense dictates you should have better statistics for individual players because you have less strength in depth at Stoke so you have to persist with the same players, this is shown by the fact that Stoke have used 22 different players in their Premiership matches this season, whereas Everton have used 27 different players...

Have some more statistics... Stokes top scorer this season has 4 goals, Mikel Arteta has been injured for the majority of this season and he has... 4 goals, oh & take note that our top scorer is Louis Saha.... Saha has 13 goals... thats more than 3 times the amount Stokes top scorer has.

Anything to add???

See you at the Britannia Stadium... fancy a wager???

nah ill give my money to bet 365 that way if i lose it stays with coatesy.

you have spent a hell of a lot of money on players and to be fair i dont mind everton or moyes, but your making yourself look silly, ok so your defender has 1 less assist than matty. WELL WHERE ARE YOUR MIDFIELDERS??? also matty has been out for a month recently.

you can go on about our top scorers and the like but were a defensive team, infact we have more clean sheets than you and less goals conceeded than you, INFACT we have only lost one more game than you all season, THIS IS ONLY OUR SECOND YEAR IN THE PREM,

on about our poor disciplinary record, and with out starting a big debate, shawcross shouldnt have been sent off against the ****

and deano whithead shouldnt have been sent off against the spuds, its been recognised by much of the media, infact mike dean is possibly the most byest ref in the prem.

my arguement about etherington having the highest assists for us, is to prove the point that we dont rely on the long throw or hoof ball as much as you might imagine

Thanks for the ammo...

erm, me making myself look silly? maybe, but so are you.... yes we have spent money this season, but so have you! in fact, if you tot it up, Everton have spent less, the only difference is that we have actually made a profit on transfers this year (thanks to Lescott & Neill)...

EVERTON TRANSFERS IN: Billyaletdinov £12m, Distin £6m, Heitinga £6m =£24million total

STOKE TRANSFERS IN: Whitehead £5 million, Huth £5 million, Sanli £5 million, Arismendi £4.4 million, Collins £2.75 million, Begovic £3.25 million = £25.4 million total

In terms of Evertons Midfield, we have plenty of quality in that department thank you... Arteta, Fellaini, Cahill, Rodwell, Pienaar, Bilyaletdinov, Osman, Gosling, Neville, Heitinga (and dont forget Donovan). I wouldn`t swap any of them for Mr Etherington matey!

Yes I grant you its true that your team has conceded less goals, but you also have a problem with scoring them... -5 goal difference??? at least Everton have a positive goal difference (+8). Oh and if you look, you are also 10 points behind us. Yes it is only your second season in the Premiership, so enjoy it while you can.

You say your players shouldnt have been sent off and that this is recognised by the media... is that the same media who say Stoke are one dimensional??? I cant work out whether you are telling me to believe what the media says now???

Personally I havent seen much of Stoke this season as I usually change channels when they are on TV, because the idea of watching neanderthals running around grass pretending to be footballers doesn`t really interest me, but the one memory I do have of Stoke this season would be that sickening tackle by Shawcross on that poor young kid Ramsey.... I just hope your lot dont deal with our quality in the same way that you had to deal with Ramseys.

Oh and speaking of Shawcross, if you were at Goodison, you will have seen Shawcross get away with handling Bilyaletdinovs shot in his area too. So decisions can go in your favour too sometimes.

By the way, your argument about Etherington.... how many of those assists were from open play...Etherington is your set piece specialist is he not? so I would suggest most of those assists came from whipping the ball into the box from the corner flag rather than by threading passes through to his team mates.

Ok, I am bored now... if you have anything else to say about football I`m afraid that I am really not interested.... so have a nice day!

etherington isnt our set piece taker no, also how you can say that tackle was awful on ramsey shows your lack of footballing knowledge, it was clearly a 50/50 which both players had a right to go for, when broken legs happen to players any age its awful, we have had it happen to delap but its just one of those things that happens in football, i wish ramsey a full and quick recovery, FABIO CLEARLY DIDNT THINK IT WAS DIRTY AS HE WOULDNT HAVE CALLED HIM UP.

also arismendi didnt cost us 4.4 million and whitehead wasnt 5 million,

again take your previous 3-4 seasons transfers in to account, as they are still playing for you
