Chelsea Face One Of The Greatest Clichés In English Football Tonight

Chelsea Face One Of The Greatest Clichés In English Football Tonight

Things are fairly bad for Jose Mourinho at the moment. Languishing in the bottom half, rumours of Roman Abramovich wielding a very expensive axe and now he has to contend with the most arduous trip in English football.

The clock's have just gone back, the days are getting shorter, it's cold and wet, where would you least like to be on such a Tuesday night? The Britannia Stadium.

Just as Chelsea's season couldn't get any worse they face one of footballs biggest clichés this evening when they travel up to Stoke On-Trent to face Mark Hughes' side in the Britannia stadium.

It's not as true as it once was but the Britannia is known as being one of the toughest away days in the league and over the years the prospect of having to play there on a cold Tuesday night is something which football fans have loved to joke about.

One saving grace for Mourinho and co. is that Stoke have ditched the aggressive hoofball tactics from yesteryear and have implemented a more attractive playing style. He can also take solace in the fact that Watford won there over the weekend ending a run of four consecutive wins for The Potters.

Here's what the footballing world has had to say about the good old fashioned cup tie, on a wet and windy Tuesday night in Stoke.
