    Was this before or after his 36 hour drinking session?

    Brilliant.

    He will easily hit 20+ goals this season.

    He sets high standards for himself and seems he knows he can do better so hopefully we get a lot more cup final type performances from him in 2nd half of season. Interesting that he feels settled at Hibs and even talks of ending his career here - good stuff Stokesy...now put the Jambos to the sword next week please

    Why did he have to say that about the cup win and the parade.

    Inconsiderate b*****d

    It's a good interview, he comes over very well and he is honest enough to say he would have hoped to be doing a wee bit better. From the outside it looks like both Stokes and Lennon have very big personalities but even after a bust up can come together again. Stokes accepts Lennon has the power to do what he wants in terms of the incident but also says he didn't do anything wrong. If it is the odd incident then that will probably not be an issue but managers disciplining staff who feel they didn't do anything wrong is not an easy relationship to manage.

    I think Stokes should be doing more and my assessment of his performance is a bit lower than his own. He is such a frustrating player as he has more talent than the vast majority of players in the league but barring the odd game he is generally pretty run of the mill with an odd flash of excellence. Scott Allen similarly frustrated me but he had a bit more end product. I think my issue comes when a player makes a mistake and their reaction to that. Allen went in the huff and did nothing which was the main reason I wasn't as keen on him as most here. You can never tell with Stokes. There has been a few games this season where his work ethic has been excellent, that usually coincides with his better performances. There has been just as many or more though when he has looked almost disinterested imo. Hopefully, it all comes together in the second half of the season and his indifferent performances become far fewer and less frequent and those flashes of brilliance become periods of brilliance.

    What a guy! He'll be hibs through and through by the end of it all. His remarks about 210516 bring it all back.

    I'm surprised team Stokesy haven't been along to say he's wrong about not playing well in all matches this season.

    absolutely no one said he's played well in every game this season. But he's put the effort in and not been as bad as clowns like yourself like to make out.

    OK. A word to the wise, in that case.

    The power of the wink smiley is there for all of us to use when necessary.

    Sarcasm and irony don't work on social media unless it's signposted from 500 yards.

    God knows most of us learnt that the hard way too.

    Good article.

    I agree 100% with his own assessment of his goals and performances.

    He's not quite set the heather alight yet, but he's still managed to make a decent contribution.

    Good to hear that he knows he can do better.

    Why? His assessment was pretty well word for word what I would have said about Stokes this season.

    Having said that, its good to hear Stokes himself saying he can do better .... A goal or two at the PBS next weekend would be the perfect start.

    21.05.2016 was like nothing he has ever/could ever experience at celtic. Celtic are so used to winning trophies that it's almost become meaningless and bog standard. They will never experience the feeling of 21/05.2016. The only thing I can think of that they could realistically win that would give them anywhere near that sort of high would be if they won the Europa Cup but that's unlikely to happen anytime soon. I'm sure Stokes, like every player would, enjoyed picking up trophies all the time with celtic but winning the SC with hibs was something very special.

    The open top bus parade as well for Stokes is something he has never experienced. Parading through the streets with thousands and thousands of people looking up at you in admiration and hailing you as a hero. The stuff dreams are made of, that as a celtic player would don't get to experience. I guarantee that weekend will be Stokes fondest football memory when he's older and looks back on his career.

    He thought he was covered by his Irish driving license but he wasn't. Non-story.

    It's a non-story but how come his Irish licence isn't valid in the UK?


    My UK license is valid in Ireland, the rest of Europe and North America.
