Paul was one of the players I saw only a few times, as his time at Stoke coincided with my time living in Plymouth. In those days I had little spare time (or money!) to get back to see Stoke City games very often. But I remember him as one of the better players at a time when they were not ten a penny at Stoke. And, like all Stokies, I've always had time for a local lad.
To lose a family member is always bad. To lose a family member at a young age - years before their time - is even worse. Condolences to all the Ware family - be strong for one another. And, of course, R.I.P. Paul.
Gutted to hear this news, Warey was probably my all time fav Stoke player, its an often used expression but the bloke would run through a brick wall for the cause of Stoke City. I only wish some of our higher profile players these days could show an ounce of the fight Paul did in our colours.
Sounds like a top bloke too by the people who knew him, condolences to his family. The club must organise a tribute at the Norwich game for a true Stoke legend. R.I.P Paul
Many condolences to all his family. He portrayed the Stoke spirit with guts and determination. He achieved every football fans dream and played for the team he supported and loved. Irreplaceable RIP ????????

Awful, tragic news.
My 11 year old lad was asking me about the best goals I'd seen a Stoke player score.
I told him about that night at Peterborough, how I'd been behind the goal and watched Tupper score one of the best goals I've seen a Stoke player score followed by one the best mentals I've had in 40+ years of watching Stoke.
That Peterborough goal is a fitting SCFC epitaph to a fighter of a player who gave everything every time he pulled on the red and white stripes. Gone far too young - most sincere condolences go out to his family. RIP Tupper.
