Stoke host Valencia on Thursday 16th February, 2012, with kickoff at 20:05. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ESPN.

A few years ago this would have sounded like a comedy fixture, but with the work Stoke have done and the decimation of the Valencia squad, mainly due to terrible financial mismanagement, has meant the this evening the Stoke faithful could well get a win to enjoy, and we can start answering the question of Europe’s finest: can they do it on a cold Thursday in Stoke?

Finding out will certainly be interesting, as will be seeing how Valencia approach this game both selection-wise, and tactically. Tony Pulis, I suspect, will be going all out for a win on one of his biggest nights in football to date.
