What goes through these individuals heads???
Channel hopping I caught a few minutes of a documentary on his ex on C5 the other day. I'm guessing if he's like her there's not a lot going on between the ears.

Reading the link, I'd suggest he's lucky not to have had a good few kickings and a prison stretch for fraud/theft as well ?

.
Believe that a fraud case is underway (unsurprisingly). A quick google shows that he hasn't turned-up to court as only God can judge him

The old thread about footballers going to jail seems to have been closed so this needs a new home

It doesn't say that he has actually done anything?

Questioned s he knows some people although not involved or something. Seems like a typical newspaper trying to use his name to build up a story before saying actually its not even him.

:looks:

it's five weeks old, and it's the story that's led to Benzema getting in trouble - BBC had a whole bit last week about Benzema's place at Euro 2016 being under real threat as a result. Cisse does appear to have been exonerated in the meantime.

I have bad news for him. God has appointed the judge overseeing the case as his agent on earth

gah, bloody journalism...

Headline: Karim Benzema 'has no place' in France team - PM Manuel Valls
Intro: Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema "has no place" in the France team, according to French Prime Minister Manuel Valls.
Actual quote: "A great athlete should be exemplary. If he is not, he has no place in the France team," Valls told French radio.

there's a difference there :rolleyes: :banghead:

What is it with OUFC and rehabilitating offenders?
Mind your vowel usage!

Barry Owen. Director. Former Chief Superintendent. Bee on his bonnet (no offence).

Given the age of this lad at the time of his offence, and his action in the aftermath, I'm a little more sympathetic this time around.

Oops no idea why I put U in there.:blush

Just done a bit of reading and it would appear prison made an impression on him

I actually quite admire Oldham and their approach to rehabilitation of players in these circumstances. Its bold but arguably more positive and progressive than the media driven "cast them to hell" approach.

After the fiasco with the suites in the new stand and reading some of O5U's posts I think that is a necessity at the moment

Just out of curiosity how did this thread go from players having scrapes with the law to a player with a dubious fitness record who may be signing for Rangers?

When has any thread stuck to its original topic? ;)

Anyone see James Wilson BHA puke up on the pitch last night whilst warming up for the game, either he ate something dodgy or if you look at his eyes, they looked like he'd been having a good NYE! :yuck:

If he did go out on the lash, how unprofessional and I bet CH would not have been happy! :rolleyes:

I think he was taken off on Boxing Day at half time-due to illness wasn't he ?

Yeah at half time. Not sure if playing him when he had a ropey stomach on new years day was a good idea. :rolleyes: Social media have already come to the conclusion he was half cut from NYE, so even if he had genuinely a bug, the damage is done...lol

Leicester City's Danny Simpson was convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and will no longer have to complete unpaid work due to press intrusion. He denied strangling the mother of his child but was convicted last May. However, the 29-year-old's lawyer complained that journalists had found where he was carrying out his community service, making it impossible. A judge revoked the sentence and ruled he should serve a curfew instead.

Since when does having pictures taken of you make your job impossible. Atleast the judge didnt let him get away with a fine

Seems like a reasonable punishment to be fair. The judge also refused to defer which means he could miss the end of season parades, jollies and trip to Thailand....
