    Outside a few people on this board I have never actually met a single Wolves fan, or non Wolves fan, who classes Stoke as a derby. It’s 3pm on a sat as to the rest of the world it’s just a run of the mill championship team playing a mid table premier league team.

    Wound much rather we got Shrews to be honest.

    Stoke is not a derby. They dont think it is and I never met anyone from our side who think it is. Be no trouble whatsoever
    I love Shrewsbury. When we went for pre season it was a great day out with a decent pub nearby so I hope its them.
    Anyone going to arrange Dave Edwards masks if so?

    The FA Cup game our coach got bricked & some broke in through the doors, they got kicked back out but apart from Blues away l the other year that’s the only issues I’ve seen at a match in years.

    Talking to a stokie the other day. He said would be nice to have a derby match. I said why? Are you playing Port Vale? Never has been a derby never will be. We have bigger derbies to play always have done. Mind you not many to be seen this season lmao over and over again.

    It’s not a local derby, but the games against stoke over the years have always been prickly inside and outside the ground, so it makes for a good game every time, as far as i can remember they’ve always filled their end at mol and it goes without saying we always fill ours there.
    it’s a tricky one if we have to play them.

    Think you may be right unfortunately, still hoping it'll be Shrewsbury.

    Oatcake dreams wants this to be a derby,but we won´t let them.
    They are still evils that needs to be broken,but I prefer Shrews since they are an easier team to beat.
    Fa Cup,this year,I take no prisoners.
    We can ACTUALLY win the bloody thing!
    I have already start to dream about going to Wemberly for the final..what a thing to dream of...this is the reason why we all support a team isn´t it? The pot of GOLD at the end of a long and mostly dreary way!

    Well,we can dream nowadays,can´t we?

    Just that(we can dream and it is not totally out of every reasonable angle)is a fantastic thing to have,collectively.

    It is just fantastic for a supporter since the 70`s.I hope I don´t wake up.

    Ain´t the Black Country though..just the outside perspective.
    Baggies is the enemy,Potters is just..Potters.
    We should have signed Shilton back in the days though.

    Born and bred in Stafford and for me and other Wolves fans from the area Stoke away was always the big game in the 60's/70's.

    I have nothing to say against that really.
    Your experince is your´s...don´t let a swede tell you what it is..:)
    We have different perspectives,that´s all..kinda had a crush on the 70`s Potters myself...Greenhoff..Shilton.

    Yep. Shrops folk in my area regard it as a derby. Well, it used to be a Staffordshire derby. Their hatred for us used to be intense and I guess that little has changed.

    A rejuvenated, more attack minded Stoke under their new manager would be an exciting prospect. He may even choose a strong team too as he'll still want to bed in his tactics with the first team.

    Port Vale are at home on the Saturday at 3pm.
    Grounds arent close but I imagine they would avoid us playing at same time due to train station etc

    Police resources for a start...

    Stoke was a big game for me too, our little mob used to head for The Trumpet in Hanley; Bank's pub which I believe is now gone.

    Shrewsbury would be nice for the Dangerous Dave factor.

    But Stoke will give us a good allocation. We can get up to 15% of capacity - so around 4,500 tickets.

    Happy with either.

    Stoke don't need the money so much prefer the gate receipts going to Shrewsbury.

    Crikey, you're going back !
    Yes, the pub has long gone unfortunately and been replaced by yet another ****** McDonalds. :(
    In fact most of the drinkers pubs in that local area have disappeared or been turned into bottle bars selling over priced craft beers.
    I was in Camden recently before the Spurs game. I ordered a half of a local brew called "Hells". Good job I did as I was fleeced for £3.50 !!
