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.
