  1. Stokes will be on trial in ireland. Case was considered serious enough for a higher court to deal with meaning a lengthy jail term is a possibility if found guilty. He is accused of a serious assault. I dont think he will be signing for anyone until that is dealt with

  2. Goal.com are a joke, I’d rather listen to Bradley aka mr_ba6 on twitter
