    Been a bit naughty but he's no Marlon King / Ched Evans - worth a punt got 4 in 6 for Scunny last year, we need strikers

    No thanks. Just what we don't need when we have a fragile fan base.

    Its competitive sport not the public service or the clergy, Noel wheelan was a bit naughty, nuddy also - did we cheer them when they scored, a fragile fanbase might get behind a new star striker,

    Why not ask Tony?

    Give Waggot a call?

    Email Tim?

    Pointless asking SBT what players you want for FM 2015.

    At 21 he should have known better. Can't say I like the racist tones of what he recorded either.

    Don't think I'd be adverse to him playing for us. I would just hope he's grown up more in the past couple of weeks than he had in the previous 21years because he's seriously behind in that department.

    Players have come back from doing worse but I think it is probably a little bit soon to try to rehabilitate the chap.

    i have only seen the Mirror version which seemed to be blanked out but have no desire to see an uncut version.

    The last 'star striker' we signed with a chequered past ended up alienating a proportion of the fan base and some fans have not returned since. Neither Whelen nor Nuddy did anything as bad or as public as this. Doesn't look good sacked from his club for racist behaviour, signed by a club who has a large multi cultural community. Too soon.

    I think the difference is those players you quoted were already with us, so were far more likely to be forgiven. Bringing in someone like Hopper could seriously damage the clubs glowing reputation :sarcasm:

    OMG Houch don't say that is your mush on your avatar? You mean all these years I've been taking sh*t from an old version of what ricky gervais would look like as a man, or woman, I can't quite decide.

    He is twice the man you will ever be. And you would need to improve vastly to even get to that level.

    It's a hat trick!

    So I gather that you believe that contributing nothing more than childish insults at individuals is more constructive and intelligent than expressing and exchanging opinions. Putting your fantasist secret missions aside of course...

    Thanks for the support Mrtrench and Astute. Don't really know what I've said or done to upset simonregis (who I've also never heard of!). But I don't give a shit about comments like that anyway :claping hands:

    4 in 6 for Scunny - not sure about his ego, Jack Grelish has a big ego but considered a great player - I did some things at 21 that I wouldn't have done at 25 we all grow up. would rather a cocky confident player rather than a Jack Finch / Connor Thomas

    I know of the lad through friends and he regrets what hes done and is currently paying for his actions, but we won't even look at Tom so their is no discussion here really.

    Also Grelish IMO is not a great player.

    What did he actually do? Didn't they have a thai woman and one of them said something about her eyes?

    Made a racist remark about the ladies, which in essence didnt sit too well with his employers who are of the same origin, pretty stupid thing all round and not to be condoned.

    Ah, I didn't know his part in it all.

    I don't think his career will be ruined totally because of it just yet though will it? It isnt up to the Ched Evans standard.

    I'd say it only made the news because of who Leicesters owners are.

    footballers tend not to be very high in the morals and education chain
    One of them was Pearson's son - and we know hes not the best example to follow

    so cheer these lads on the pitch , but off, never try to pretend they can be role models

    Doubt that. Professional footballer being racist would make the news regardless I reckon.

    Needs to be careful who he trusts too as the video was only sent between a close circle of friends, next thing is the Mirror has hold of it.
