Stoke City VS West Bromwich

I haven't been able to find a video but i'll upload one when able.
Well the major talking point is the late equalizer by Vela, the mexican international player who is on loan from Arsenal. West bromwich tied the game in minute 87. This goal seemed  to have been offsides, i think it is but the flag stayed down and Vela got a goal. Now this game wasn't too interesting in general.
Now for a quick run down of the game. The first 25 minutes were testing for Stoke. There were not many shots at goal but they could not move out of their half of the pitch. Stoke had gone one in front in the first half with a goal by Delap, his second this season. It came off of a corner kick delivered by Jermaine Pennant. This was also Pennant's first game since January and he attacked hard and was the biggest threat to the baggies (West Brom). The game wasn't exciting in general simply becuase West Brom has a really unreliable defense, but they defended the main threats and their strikers get the goals in the dieing minutes. Asmir Begovic was doing his job all game with plenty of saves througout. After West Brom's goal (questionable? i say so but im biased) they forced three more saves from him. All in all Stoke could have won this game but it was not to be.

And for all you stoke fans
I'm Stoke City till i die
