    Decent hook.

    Haven't read anywhere how it started but by the looks of the video, the aggressor is the fella with the bottle, he swings it at Stokes mate then Stokes just loses it and piles in, imo.

    The Sun certainly enjoying this one. Nothing like putting the boot into one of our stars before a major tournament. Clearly provoked but also he lots the plot!

    Agreed, The Sun are c-units.

    I was a little reluctant to post a thread on it, tbh as I hate it when tabloids get a sniff of a story and destabilise the build-up. Eg. The Mirror and Terry Venables before Euro '96, fookin witch-hunt.

    The story that is coming out now, which isn't yet verified, is that two chaps were on the receiving end of homophobic abuse and were threatened by the bloke with the bottle so Stokes stepped in.

    Yeah, can see him swing a bottle and then gets a kickin. "Apparently" he was defending a homophobic attack.

    Fair play, even if it is just for giving the twats who swing bottles a kickin. The one who drops is the one who swung the bottle.

    In that situation it's hard to say how you would react, if somebody is going to use a bottle you are going to make sure they aren't getting up.

    Press going mad about 15 punches in a minute, it's not really that many.

    whilst we all might have done (or wanted to do) what stokes did you just can't get drawn in like that if you are a representative of your country. He has a history of not being able to control himself and I fear this will go badly for him.

    Now a video has emerged of him mocking Harvey Price. That in my opinion is worse than this situation if he was in fact defending the 2 blokes that were being attacked.

    My views or the video?

    What mocking the disabled over a scrap with 2 blokes? (And yes I am aware of #onepunch) 2 blokes that if the alleged allegations of why he got involved are true weren't so innocent themselves.

    I think the police and the CPS will have a view on that.

    Yep it's true. He mocks the lads appearance on loose women, where he calls the people who take the piss out of him, cunts.

    No I agree he's in trouble as he kept going after they were backing away in a sense the 'self defence' issue had switched sides!

    I had wondered why the blokes attacked hadn't pressed charges I guess we know why, If the allegations (I first saw on twitter from Piers Morgan) are true.

    He is certainly digging his own career grave and a shit load of press waiting to fill the soil up,behind him.

    Isn't this a positive? He'll be our leader in any brawls in Australia.

    If he doesn't go to Australia, we may as well just hand Australia the Ashes and save ourselves the plane fare.

    The only thing maybe is why he allowed himself to be in that position anyway.

    As for the jumping in after he swung a bottle and giving him a pasting, fair play.

    he'll be booked on an anger management and diversity awareness course already. Completed, rehabilitated and rejuvinated in time to fly out for the ashes.
