Hi to all Stokies.

BBC repeated ‘Marvellous’ last night. The story of Nello.

Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it before.

Roth watching if you’re not a Stoke fan too. True feelgood stuff.

Oh fantastic I want to see it again. I played for Neil's football team at Keele Uni. So many funny stories. Toby Jones did an amazing job and I loved the scenes that Neil was in too.

He had a testimonal game when I was there, reffed by Uriah Rennie. Kevin Keegan sent him a letter to say he couldn't make it. He was England manager at the time I think? But there were loads of Stoke legends playing.

Keegan was good at that stuff. My mate is a massive Man City fan and a big Championship Manager player who took City through the leagues on a regular basis. When he got married he got a card from Keegan wishing him and his wife all the best, signed ‘Kevin Keegan, the real Manchester City Manager‘

Tell us more about playing for Neil Baldwin FC...

I will write some when I have more time. But one quick one was that there was an away game which I didn't go to. A friend of mine was helping Neil organise things. They had a mini bus which might have been hired but possibly borrowed but it quickly became apparent that the tank was empty and it was a fair old drive. Neil as always had no money, so my mate paid for a full tank of petrol, which was probably not an inconsequential amount for a student.

A while later I asked if Neil had paid him back. "Not exactly" was the reply. He had got so tired of asking Neil for the money and Neil had such a disarming was of persuading people - that he had accepted Neil's offer to be paid back the value of the petrol in................. Circus Tickets.

Hard to believe that happened less than 6 years ago.  Think the 2012 3-1 lolapool boxing day game was even more impressive than the 6-1 because that was the end of the season.

A few years ago one of the Stoke academy coaches passed away suddenly from cancer, our sons had been friends since primary school. Hughes and most of the academy came to the funeral as well as Shawcross. I'm sure Ryan could have made his excuses but he made the trip over to Leicester, paid his respects and had a word for anyone at the wake.

A class act.
