It sounded like he was living 'round here and his family were still living in Edinburgh.
Would have thought they'd follow him down if he was on the reported £1.5m-a-year. Must put a bit of a strain on things to suddenly be essentially living apart from his wife and kids for most of the week.
'One moment in the first half summed up the bond that exists between Stoke's players and the supporters who follow them so fervently. To an almost bullring roar from The Britannia, Liverpool were pressed further and further back into their own territory by a chasing pack of opponents and an increasing sense of panic. The crowd loved it and so did Pulis and his players.'
His family still live in Edinburgh, his wife is a primary school teacher and one of his daughters plays for Hearts. AFAIK he spends most of his week in Stoke and only sees the family once or twice a week.
My father was a commercial traveller and left home on Monday to return late in the week. I spent 2 years working in South Wales with my home in the North East, there are 100.000s who work away from home, maybe more.
When Bryan Robson managed Middlesbrough he stayed in a Teesside plush hotel when needed but regularly commuted by helicopter to Manchester.
