Correct, I don't think we will see them in the senior squad for a while, back to the under 21's maybe.

Maybe an opportunity for Grealish....
Shouldn’t he be treated the same with his recent law breaking activities

That would be the irony maybe if he got his England debut through the misconduct of other young players.

You'd be better off saying you completely ignore the Premier League.

If you listen to 5Live, Talksport, read any newspaper, the BBC Sport website, in fact any media outlet that features football you would surely have heard of them...
Actually that's true. Well summed up.

Right - but there’s always an element of risk when anyone goes anywhere.There’s obviously more ignorance at play here, but even still your words are far, far too strong in my opinion. You’ve literally used the words “‘murdering ****s” ffs.
"Potentially" is a word I also used to prefix it. I understand you consider it too strong but I stand by it. Messages put out there aren't sinking in. In fact people like this aren't even damp yet. The messages are too soft. They are being openly laughed at and ignored. They need to be massively more hard hitting and so do punishments if we are to make a joint effort to control this thing to a sensible level. All this talk about the new ground and not being able to wait to get in there. People are assuming it will happen soon. Do you think you'll get in there this season? Not a prayer in my opinion. And I reckon we'll be finishing the season with a lot less clubs than we started with.

Vcmazz i like a lot of your posts and viewpoints but feels like you are consumed by thoughts of Covid at the moment and that it may be affecting your mental health. This isn’t meant to be goady by the way just checking you’re doing ok?

It's a fair comment and the most honest answer I can give you is that I suspect it probably is.

Regardless whether we disagree on approaches, measures or anything else we’re both brentford fans (and more importantly humans) mate and need to look after ourselves... might not change anything but you may want to find someone to talk to (assuming you don’t want to burden your wife as she’s high risk or your son who’s juggling his own challenges) to get this off your chest and see if it helps, even a little bit.

Apart from their responsibilities regarding CoVid what is the conversation going to be with the mother of his one year old child when he gets home.
I'm in the middle of reading a book by "The Secret Footballer" titled " What goes on tour isn't going to stay on tour anymore". How true.

She's probably glad of the potential boost to her media profile and in a few months will sell the story of her 'struggle to forgive him' to the highest bidding gossip rag. They'll be 'stronger than ever' and blah blah blah.

Money talks.

If Foden wasn’t gifted at Football he looks like the sort of youth who would be being dragged out of a stolen Golf by the Police Interceptors on TV.

Probably like Ched Evans missus and Colleen Rooney.

Will forgive almost anything to keep the lifestyle

married with a kid, probably doesn't have to put up with it to still be minted. I think Rooney's indiscretion happened before they were married and had kids - and Colleen sold out!

this is all from memory and may well be wrong

I don’t understand. Did the Icelanders hand out Barbie Dolls as a potential good will gesture?
....icelandic women....similar to their scandanavian counterparts.....from experience...can be very persuasive in their ways........i read young greenwood says he'll learn from this experience.......i'm sure he has.

You mean with the 60 year old pro when he was about 17 and with Coleen at the time?

Pretty sure I read he got busted by police drink driving with a female companion in recent years since kids

I’m sure he’d have benefited from a chat with you beforehand, the poor boy. In my experience, Scandinavian women neither need , nor use that much makeup.

Me and my pals got friendly with a group of Icelandic girls on a holiday to Majorca years ago.
They were absolutely amazing.

The good thing is that it may give Grealish a cap, he'd never do anything as stupid as those two would he?lol

Cardiff sack Nathaniel Mendez-Laing with no reason provided other than "breach of contract".

Player has disappeared from social media.

The bastion of accurate reporting has been updated and states "due to an alleged breach". Wouldn't the club have to be certain before taking the action they have taken?

It's Cardiff that are doing the alleging.

"Cardiff City Football Club has, with immediate effect, terminated the contract of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing."

My suspicion is that this will be a drug issue as otherwise the club would simply sell him - after all the window is open. They obviously can't sell him as he will be on a ban and they have sacked him in order to avoid paying his wages. Plus you can only terminate employments "with immediate effect" (i.e. without notice) for gross misconduct...

Hard to see what else it can be considering how well protected footballers otherwise are.

Rumour (and it’s purely that, but I like rumours so...) is that there was a major drink drive incident that left two unnamed men in a serious condition. Those two men ‘could’ have been Mendez-Laing and Gary Madine....

Shades of Derby County.....


Presumably one of the two was the driver?

Another one doing the rounds is of Mendez-Laing and Madine being involved in some sort of underground fight club where they’d pay locals in Cardiff, significant sums to be beaten up by them.
😂😂😂😂

:LOL:

They would just sell him though, same with drink-driving. There's only one logical conclusion here...

There's probably an innocent explanation, like the referee's magic foam ran out and this guy thought to mark the line himself instead.

What makes them think they can flout the guidelines ?
Three players involved. Fine them all a hundred quid. That'll make them think twice next time.
