Talking to a town player today and he seems to think they are looking for an excuse. 

But Stokes likes to go in a roid rage now and again so maybe hes upset some1.

Can  Town  afford  to  sack  him ??  Looks  to  me  there  looking  for  an  excuse.  No  doubt  Ged  will  have  a  decent  solicitor :D

 Sounds as though it may be a breach of contract or a gross misconduct matter to me, sounds sackable if hes found to be guilty ! Also sounds as though there may be some bitterness and resentment at lack of backing if he is found to have no case to answer.
   Either way people are going to end up unhappy !!

I'm with you monte!!
lets get the sun involved, like they did with dreardrie!!

perhaps Scrumpy Jack will donate liquid refreshments?

if i bring a tape deck, will you fetch your "Stokess Greatest Hits" tape?

we can get everyone singing, "I've got a brand new combine harvester, and i'll give you the key" whenever dave bowden pops his head over the greyskull turrets!!!
