Stoke Want The Axe

Stoke Want The Axe

Stoke City are apparently after the Axe man, Aaron Mokoena. This is due to a few news reports, particularly on Sky Sports.

The South African captain, South africa's most capped player, is determined to secure regular first-team football this season.

Mokoena will be keen to hold talks with Paul Ince to see where he figures in the managers' plans for the 08-09 season. However, with 2 more central midfielders coming in to the Rovers set up, Aaron's Blackburn future looks in doubt.

Mokoena has also been linked with a move to Manchester City to link up with his former boss Mark Hughes, whilst Rangers, Ajax and Schalke have also been credited with an interest.

But to get the first team football he craves, Stoke looks the most likely option.

I honestly think it could be time for Aaron to move on. he came in when we were relgation threatened, did his bit. Keeps the ship tight but I believe we may have out grown that.

the axe, been a good servant to the club, filled in when he has been needed, though it is time to go, unless incey sees something

Mokoena was class when he first arrived, he really stopped the team shipping goals and we became far more water tight when he came into the team. Its a shame that he is seen as being surplus to requirements as he is one the reasons we are still in the premier league. However last season whenever he played he was poor so if we can get a few bob for him then fair enough I say.

Aaron, the only thing i can say about you is that ur second touch was always a tackle!!!!!!!!!!! Let him go boys, he's an average midfielder to put it politely and an even worse centre half!!! He grafts and grafts but Stoke will be able to progress with him....we wont!!

Bit harsh that mani!!! lol... I think he deserves a bit more credit than that. Played well in the FA Cup semi v Chelsea and scored a crucial goal v Man City. he certainly isnt everyones taste, but I liked him. If he does go, I wish him only the best.

IF all those other clubs are after him WHY are we selling. Somehow I don't beleive that they are!!! He's been a good servant to us, but it's time for him to move on, with thanks and best wishes of course.
