Is anyone surprised at the 5-0 shellacking Bolton gave Stoke City this weekend, I am but there are some things some may not know.
Back in April of this year, in the FA Cup Semi Finals, Stoke City defeated Bolton 0-5 at Bolton, ahem, at Wembley, maybe worse seeing how that is considered a "spiritual home" of soccer! Bolton's form was fairly good up to that point but since that game, they've only won 3 League games before the game this past Sunday.
And I saw a few people picked Bolton to win but that that game ended Bolton 5 Stoke City 0 is a bit surreal.
You've got to think they stand a good chance to salvage this season now.
