Stoke City update & new player!

Former Leeds and Chelsea defender, Michael Dubberry has signed for Stoke on a free transfer. He did very well in a recent loan spell at Stoke but has never been a hit with the Leeds fans (to the point where he was booed at many games). Looks like a good signing and seeing as we have lost defender Marcus Hall (to Coventry) and striker Ade Akinbiyi (to Burnley) we need some reinforcements.

Dubberry signs...

We also have Leed’s striker Michael Ricketts on a month’s loan and again he is no crowd favourate at Leeds. Judging by his, shall we say ‘rounded’ figure, it looks like we won’t be keeping him long term and was apparently crap when he came on as a sub against Coventry.

Lots of players will be out of contract in the summer with Wayne Thomas looking set to leave which is a blow as he is a damn fine player. He’s turned down a contract but yet to respond to a revised contract. It seems the club is unwilling to get into contract talks yet as the current rumour is that Pullis will be leaving at the end of the season.

Finally, Pullis son has had a game with Torquay (where he is currently on loan from Stoke) and was awful. So much so he was subbed by an injured player! John Rudge says ‘he is on for the future’ – future in any career bar football it seems…
