'I hear Stoke won 5/zip!'

It the world of celebrity fans, it doesn’t come much cooler than Guns ‘N’ Roses axe man Slash. When you compare him to the likes of Chelsea’s David Mellor, or Port Vale’s Robbie Williams, your man from the world of hard rock and big hair cuts quite the swathe.

The guitarist, who was born and raised in Stoke-on-Trent before moving to Los Angeles at the age of 11, is also apparently a Stoke City fan, and was rather happy with City’s 5-0 spanking of Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup semi-finals. And why not, eh?

‘I got up to find that the satellite channel the match was on I don't subscribe to!’ he exclaimed on Twitter. ‘But I hear Stoke won 5/zip! Congrats Stoke City! Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to Wembley next month, but I'm definitely playing Stoke in July.’
