Some winter sun for the Potters

The Stoke City squad are off to find some winter sun after this week's trip to Chelsea.

The Potters don't have a match next week since being knocked out of the FA Cup by Hartlepool and Tony Pulis has arranged for the team to train for five days in sunny Dubai, where the weather is likely to be several degrees warmer than Stoke on Trent.

The squad will fly out after the match at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and be back in the Potteries by the following Friday.

Why? they trot off to these warm climates and then come back to cold and wet England and then they all get flu and can't play.
