Well, it’s the end of an era for this man.
And despite my best efforts to try and get him some more game time, it looks like I’m going to fall short in that department, but it’s OK, I’m used to it at this point.
The club announced yesterday that David Stockdale was going to be leaving the club after three years at St Andrew’s, having amassed 40 appearances for the club in that time in all competitions, although he has spent plenty of time on loan at various clubs during that spell as well, despite going through the majority of the 2017/18 season as the club’s first-choice stopper.
Were the Blues right to get rid of Stockdale?
So it’s not as if he hasn’t left his mark on the club, just perhaps not a big a mark as he probably could and should have done. And there was plenty of reaction to seeing the 34-year-old stopper axed by the club, some of them positive, some of them negative.
Fair well @stockogk1313 when times were tough, you was the only one to step forward and answer the fans and I've got to respect you for that, good luck to wherever you end up next 👍🏻

David Stockdale in the mix for the worst signing ever made by this football club. Which ain’t a short list by any means

Stockdale just sat on his wages showing no ambition, rather his career die out then play

So heard a long time ago that Stocko was clearing about 60k a week from blues. In hindsight, he’s on about £3mill a year to turn upto training everyday? Really liked the guy but not getting rid of him years ago has to be one of the worst bits of business we haven’t done. Mad.

Don't care what "issues" apprently happend behind closed doors but the clubs handling of Stockdale since Monk came in was shocking irrespective if he was good enough to play or not #bcfc

What about you? Do you agree with the club in letting Stockdale go? Or would you have rather he stayed?
