Stoke City hit four goals away from home for the first time in 32 years on Sunday and that left chairman Peter Coates purring about their performance.
Coates rightly observed that the win over Villa on their own patch was the best performance of a Stoke City side since being in the Premier League. Goals from Peter Odemwingie, Peter Crouch, Steven Nzonzi and Geoff Cameron equalled that of the team that hammered Birmingham City in 82.
Coates told the Sentinel: "It was pretty good, a very enjoyable away day, and we haven't had too many of those.
"I've said before that we have played better away from home than results have indicated this season, but I still didn't think we were going to go and do that to Aston Villa.
"When we went behind I thought 'here we go', but we got back into the game by playing attractive, attacking football to make it a great afternoon for all Stoke supporters.”
