    • '90+7 That is it. Seven minutes of additional time comes to an end, a quite brilinat game of football ends Stoke 3-3 Southampton. Stoke are now ten matches unbeaten in the Premier League, but Southampton will feel that they should have had all three points after going 3-1 up.

    • '90+5 Cork concedes a free-kick, and Stoke sense a chance to win the game.
    • '90+4 Walters overhits a ball to Crouch and it is a goal-kick to Southampton.

    • '90+1 They only have ten men, but Stoke fans are in good voice as they think they can win this now.
    • '90 There are SEVEN minutes of stoppage time!
    • '90 WHAT A GOAL! Jerome makes it 3-3 with a piledriver from 35 yards, as he pounces on the loose ball after Crouch is unable to control Jones' knockdown.
    • '88 Yoshida clears Whitehead's cross from the right. Saints have ten men behind the ball!
    • '87 Jerome lofts the ball into the net, but he is offside. After a yellow card a moment earlier, there are not too many complaints!

    • '76 Jones flicks on at the near post another Shotton throw, but Crouch is not on the end of it.
    • 75' Walters chases down Jones' pass, but his cross is wild and overhit from the right.
    • 74' Send on the big lad. Peter Crouch is on for Kightly.
    • 73' Jones heads on at the near post from Shotton's throw, but there is no-one there at the far post to take advantage.
    • 72' In the madness, Dean Whitehead is on to replace Wilkinson.
    • 71' The Stoke fans are singing: "You're not fit to referee" They won't be thinking that when they see the replays.
    • 70' SENDING OFF: N'Zonzi leaves the boot in on Cork and Clattenburg rightly produces a straight red.
    • 69' THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PENALTY. Fonte leads with his hand as he climbs for a header with Jones in the area, but referee Clattenburg says no.
    • 68' Fonte charges down a Jones shot from a corner, but Upson drives the loose ball past Davis.

    • 55' Huth has a bandage on his head, and both are going to change their shirts.
    • 54' Huth and Wilkinson clash heads, and there is blood on both the defenders. I think it is Huth's blood. Rodriguez steps out of the Stoke sandwich and the two defenders bump heads.

    • 52' Kightly cuts inside from the right but his left foot shot is straight at Davis.

    • '42 That is a great clearance from Hooiveld after some intricate touch play from Stoke around the area.

    • '26 Stoke are really missing Shawcross and Cameron, as Southampton are matching Stoke high ball to high ball.
    • '25 It is the former Burnley striker's second goal of the season. Southampton are on top here, and Puncheon has an effort blocked.
    • '24 SOUTHAMPTON TAKE THE LEAD: Lambert floats in a beautiful cross from the right, which Huth at full stretch clears onto the bar, and Rodriguez is able to tap home.
    • '23 It is easily cleared by Southampton, though.
    • '22 Ref Clattenburg is having a word with N'Zonzi for pushing before the corner.

    • '11 Great chance for Stoke to equalise as Nzonzi's deflected shot loops up to Jones, who misses from two yards!

    • '9 IT IS STOKE 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON. Ricky Lambert with a cool volley at the far post from Do Prado's swinging cross from the left.

  1. Crouch controlled the ball with his arm and therefore­ Jerome's goal should have been disallowed.

    From m m, on Mon 31 Dec 1:29
  2. Typical southern softie B&*^%)S crying at us­ Stokies again Stoke should sign that thug Lambert go­ along with our cultured passing football. A biased F.A­ Referee Clattunshite along with Mike (I hate­ Stoke)Dean, Howard (I agree with Mike Dean) ho and I­ forgot Martin Atkinson. Every game we play we play­ against 14 of the opposition's party on the pitch.­ Clattunshite sending Nzonzi off was another example of­ sending of Stoke players for anything. Also turning­ away clear clear penalty. You southern softies would­ love to be were Stoke and Tony Pulis are with a self­ made millionaire our chairman from Stoke a Stoke City­ fan we are all proud off. Your going down with the same­ football as the mighty potters. Only comment on Stoke­ if you shites watch us live not 2 mins on M.O.T.D.

  4. Well I've got to eat me hat with me oatcakes, never­ expected potters to come back after that, shows how­ they've improved. Don't think Stoke'll go­ back just yet, Southampton might though!

    From MICHAEL COATES, on Sat 29 Dec 20:41

  7. Well done Stoke!

    From Dino, on Sat 29 Dec 16:58
  8. Doing a "find-my-past" search ... Pulis and­ Ferguson are actually related- way back - spawned from­ the same great-great (keep going) great grandfather­ whose name was Beelzebub. Explains it all really !

    From Madrileno, on Sat 29 Dec 16:54
  9. every one knows you dont win matches sitting on a two­ goal lead Norm,

  12. Another red card for Stoke. Why am I not surprised?

    From Olly, on Sat 29 Dec 16:31
  13. Chris - when you bet on a football result, don't­ automatically assume that the team who won well before­ will always win its next match - that's a losers­ assessment !

    From Billy the Kid, on Sat 29 Dec 16:14
