R.I.P Mr Doyle. always liked to watch him play and always gave it 150%. all of our thoughts are with mike and his family at this sad time. was he at wembley when we both met for FA cup final...? the demon drink kills another sporting great,what a waste. stokies and man city fans once again joined in a common cause.
Very little to add that hasn't already been said. He was a great signing for Stoke at the time and a real signal we were going all out for promotion. He formed a very good partnership with Smithy and was the ideal replacement for Alan Bloor. Moreover he was a man of principal, as others have said, he was definitely very much of the blue half of Manchester and hated Manure - didn't he get in trouble with the FA once for saying so!
RIP Mike, and condolences to his family and friends.
I remember when we bought him and thinking he was here for a last pay day. I couldn't have been more wrong, he was one of the most committed player to wear a Stoke shirt. Very quickly won me over and turned out to be a brilliant signing.
