    I don't recall any of his performances for us except away to Germany (Noel King era) when he played well I thought, probably was at his peak as a player then.

    Contract at Hibs cancelled by mutual consent. Linked with a move to Charlton before the transfer window closes

    He scored twice for Hibs in that epic Cup Final win over Rangers so he has earned himself a place in the annals of that club. He has not featured in any of Neil Lennon's match day squads this year having reportedly been dropped for disciplinary reasons and subsequently requesting time off (according to RTE).

    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    opened this thread half expecting to read he has retired. couldn't cut it in the SPL for whatever reason. we can safely forget about him in terms of the national side.

    Probably one of the most disappointing stories in recent memory with a one-time prospect. Could have done much more with his career IMO.

    He certainly has had a lot of coverage for non football stuff .

    Never good for a sports person .

    Google Translate gives this from the page -

    Apollo Smyrna FC announces agreement with footballer Antony Stoke. Born on July 25, 1988, the Irish striker has fought in Hibernian, Blackburn, Celtic, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United, Sunderland, Falkirk and Arsenal. It is international with the Irish National Team.

    Seems a bit harsh. It was just that one time in Buck Whaley's, I thought...
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    Sun, sea and ouzo - that's going to work out just dandy.

    He had plenty to make it as an international footballer but his attitude was wrong. Too much success, too soon it seems. Probably believed his own hype.

    Everyone is entitled to a second chance but he's screwed up off the field numerous times.
    If I was a manager I wouldn't touch him with a bargepole
    Folding my way into the big money!!!

    Agree with the first and last bits, but the part in bold is a little bit harsh. He did cut it in the SPL with both Hibs and Celtic; hit 20 goals four times in five years, as well as 16 in 18 with Falkirk.

    Apollon Smyrni is some drop though. I don't think there's too much depth in Greece outside the top few, and Smyrni are just above the relegation zone, having been promoted last season. Average crowd less than 1000. Will presumably be hoping for a productive few months and a big transfer in the summer, but if it doesn't happen, he could well return to Ireland.

    I should have been more clear, I meant in his most recent spell... perhaps Dundalk wouldn't be a bad move for him though as you say a bit of success in Greece could see him find another team there or in Turkey / Cyprus etc.

    It's not exactly a big fat Greek transfer but i'd take spring time in Athens over Dundalk.
