I'm amazed at the blase attitude to the drink driving offence on here, especially if as it appears to be in the morning. But then again watching football smashed up on the sauce then it shouldn't be that surprising after all?
I do not condone drink driving, it is wrong, I do not see any message on here, I am sure you will show me, if there is, where anybody is blasé attitude to drink driving

there is a massive big difference between having a drink and drink driving

those that know me, we only over do the sauce when travelling by train
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Behave.....nobody goes out to get smashed up on the sauce. Brian rarely has more than one pint, ashman, nipper, and myself rarely more than three (in recent years).

Nipper no longer ever has three pints. We don't get the time to have :shock: more than a couple before a match. The most she has consumed on a match day is two pints. I can't even persuade her to have that extra half! I can't vouch for bristle though! :lol:

How else has he appeared " to be a bit of a knob" ?
I was referring to his previous.... Kno b biting incident last season and the reported previous taxi driver incident although he was found not guilty of that. It does imply that he's likely to do things again
What knob biting? I know his ban was for biting but whats with this knobby thing don't remember reading any of that? :D

He refused a blood test though, so he is guilty of DD end of regardless, and I agree with Bristleposh its the DD that is the worry as of course it can be a killer whereas shoving someone, even a copper can't, which is why I to feel DD is the issue. Unfortunately too many people even now drink and drive, and these people risk causing all sorts of carnage, and yes though a big fine looms, prison? Rightly or wrongly, not a chance
Will he play for us again?
If the club are supporting him quite probably, but this is surely last chance saloon, in fact he must have one foot already out of it's door and clearly if drink sends him OTT as his splattered record suggests is the case, then if he wants to move on, not just at Posh or in football but more importantly in life generally, he has to stop drinking, and like all people with similar illnesses, not just now, next month or even next year, but like for ever

He has been charged with assaulting a police officer. He is also charged with using threatening behaviour and failure to provide a specimen of breath.

I don't know how lenient your courts are. If it happened here and he is found guilty he would get a custodial sentence.

I doubt the club will decide on what line to take until after Monday.

This idea that footballers are role models is japes. Never in doubt someone would wheel it out here though. Just a cliche that belongs to yesteryear.
Of course footballers are role models. All kids that play football at school or in the backyard yearn to be the next pro player. Nothing wrong with that but I know you are just baiting.
Not bait at all.

It's a ridiculous go-to line in these situations.

Parents are role models to their kids. Footballers are footballers and that''s it. Kids love football and couldn't give two hoots if a player gets up to something he shouldn't. It's utter nonsense.

Ah yes, but a role model doesn't have to necessarily lead by a good example. There are a lot of dysfunctional kids and parents.A footballer with a bad attitude might be attractive behaviour to some kids as not.

My point is, the ideology that role models is antiquated terminology is incorrect. It's as much relevant today in all its guises and peer pressure as ever it was.

That's why there is not as much respect from certain people for the Police compared to 50+ years ago. Ricky is an example.

Kevin Keegan was my role model when I was a kid not some Posh squad player who hardly got a game.

If you read through the thread I never said Ricky was a role model. Chompy brought up the subject that role models belonged to yesteryear.
You did at least have a role model. I didn't like Kevs perm though.

Chompy why would David Beckham not be a role model? The guy was a very talented footballer and is now also extremely successful with his non football related career. He’s very popular and liked by most people, a father to 4 kids and has been married to the same girl for 20 years. How would you not want to employ someone with that level of sustained success at whatever they turn their hand to? Surely an example of what anyone can achieve if they work hard enough no matter what their background.

I have a great respect for David Beckham, I absolutely was totally annoyed with him, when he got sent of in that world cup gained. He came back from this, from being booed by the footballing nation, to be admired and respected

I do not regard him as thick

He is a great family man that has done well for himself

what building site do you reckon he'd be labouring on if he couldn't play football then stuie?
Is that relevant? After all he could play football.... A superb player in his era, family focused rather than the more recent crop who are lead by their nether regions.... easier to knock than give credit. The English way after all
