ABSTRACT
ACCORDING to Tony Pulis, the young gentlemen who play for Stoke City are a high-spirited bunch of practical jokers. 'We have a smashing dressing room,' chuckled the Stoke manager. 'There's about four or five of our lads who are always up to something, and there's always banter going on.' He made his football team sound like the Staffordshire branch of the Bullingdon Club (an elite private society of well-to-do students at Oxford University) To be fair to the Bullingdon, its members observe a certain decorum; trashing the odd restaurant or debagging the occasional commoner.
