Performance and Result
Best - Wembley(cup semi final) 10/10
Worst - Upton Park(league game) 0/10
Worst - Upton Park(16/50) This was the heaviest defeat of the season, to the side who finished bottom of the league, and included a nightmare journey with many road closures, expensive and tasteless food and drink and a bad atmosphere that had a tinge of anger amongst the home support, even with their comfortable win.
Best - Cardiff City Stadium(42/50) The Championship side provided the opposition for the 3rd round of the FA Cup and it was a great day out for the Potters faithful. The journey down was near faultless, parking was easily accessible and cheap. The performance was good, despite the side missing many first teamers, whilst also getting a good result, a 2-0 win. The atmosphere was good with some witty banter between the two sets of supporters.
