Cameron Jerome believes Stoke are capable of competing on multiple fronts this season and claims they will continue to give their all in every competition.
The Potters booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, with a 3-1 victory over League Two outfit Gillingham seeing them safely through.
Tony Pulis' side made it all the way to the final last season before coming unstuck against Manchester City, allowing them to take in two memorable days out at Wembley.
They are looking to go one better this season, while continuing to make headway at home and abroad.
Stoke currently occupy a top-half standing in the Premier League and are readying themselves for an eagerly-anticipated meeting with Valencia in the last 32 of the Europa League.
A gruelling schedule awaits the Potters in 2012, but Jerome is adamant that the club can handle the demands and continue to make progress in league and cup competition.
He said: "I think it's quite manageable.
"We have had a heavy schedule before Christmas but we have got through that.
"We are sitting in eighth position in the league, which is good, and we are through to the last 32 of the Europa League after no-one gave us a prayer before the competition started.
"We are doing well. We are all sorted at the minute, so hopefully we can progress in this competition (FA Cup) as well.
"It's something the manager wants to do and something the player wants to do.
"We'll play our football and look to win games - that's all we can do."
