A bit about you:
Recent graduate, currently training as a croupier at a local casino because no one in the entire World of Sport is willing to give me a chance in a job. I am also a blogger on a new, but successful Stoke site (4231 Stoke) (http://fourtwothreeonestoke.com) just to keep me sane during this tough time.
Name: Matt Morris, however I’m known as Mozzaa.
Current home town: Stoke-on-Trent
How long have you supported your team? Well my first game was Exeter away in 1992, I was 6 months of age so I do not count that, I started to regularly go Stoke games in 1996; so a good 18 years.
Overview of your club:
A different beast to how we were even 2 years ago, however there is still some of the aspects there, but with plenty of attacking flare and pace. Severely under-rated, unfairly judged (usually by London folk) and have a centre half who should be in the England squad, but is judged on a mistake on his debut against a world class striker, who had one of the games of his career and a more internationally experienced Gary Cahill wanting no responsibility of defending said player – the shirker, but we are not bitter about it...
Favourite thing about your home ground: The warmth climate. In all seriousness, I would say it is probably the supporters, when we get going that is, it is rare and far between these days though. – The ground was a balls up soon as the plans were made (it’s a long story but the ground is the wrong way round to which they wanted it to be.).
Favourite match played by your team & why: Match itself – it can’t be anything else but beating Bolton 5-0 at Wembley, not many teams will go to Wembley and beat a team on a similar billing so emphatically. In terms of experience, Valencia away I doubt will ever be beat - the entire week was immense.
Favourite player of all time who played for your club: It would have been Graham Kavanagh, but he left a bitter taste in most fans mouths and he’s the only player who has made me cry when they left. So I will go for Sergei Shtaniuk– not many outside of Stoke would have heard of him, but the guy was an absolute colossus and was far too good for us at the time, genuine Premier League player playing in Division 2. Rory Delap deserves an honorary mention too.
