Stantheman: I am a complete dinosaur when it comes to stream and download, but I was quite surprised how straightforward the whole process was. Credit where its due. Well done Stoke.

Bristol Mick: Radio Stoke commentary rather than some half informed drivel provided by a national broadcaster was good too.
Stokecitytalke: It was very good, I liked the Radio Stoke commentary, but with pictures!
Pretty Little Boother: Yep, well done Stoke! Very happy with how reliable it seemed.
Cast no shadow: My dodgy stream was good as well.
Olgrligm: HD quality for 90 minutes with no buffering or weird website problems at kick off time. It was probably as close to perfect as you could get, minus the performance.
felonious: Way beyond any expectations I had, well done Stoke.
ab61: Credit where credit is due.
Not forgetting the ticket office staff for all the hard work in the week sorting as many problems as possible. They just work there so can only work with the tools they have been given.
wilcopotter: Pretty much frozen for 35 minutes, a few seconds here and there, left it on, then all of a sudden fine. Anyone, any ideas why that may have happened, just so I can prevent it happening in future?
