Debate: Should Rapist Footballer Ched Evans play again?

Should convicted rapist regain £1.5 million job?

 

ff ched evans 29 oct copy

CONVICTED RAPIST Ched Evans has pleaded for his old job back.The football ace, 25, has begged to return to his previous role as striker in team Sheffield United. It was revealed Sheffield United planned to reinstate Evans in the squad. Attempting to avoid such scrutiny, the club have backtracked after public outrage.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was forced into hiding twice, including changing her name and identity. Club fans have began chanting Evans and cheering him as a hero at football games for his actions. Evans continues to plead innocence blaming his victim for being intoxicated as an excuse after his convicted sentence. A miscarriage of justice is being looked into by the Crime and Justice department over his half served sentence.

Rape victims and his victim herself have been demoralised with the continued public attitude of Evans trying to gain fans pleading blind innocence which many feel mock the justice system and allow rapists to be excusable for their actions.

Clayton McDonald, the original man who had consensual sex with the victim, texted Evans telling him he “had a girl” in a hotel and encouraged Evans to come along. Evans, who willingly knew what he was going into, did not gain the consent of the victim and later claimed her drinking was to blame for a false claim of rape.

Ched-Evans

Evans has since gained a doting girlfriend and has been publicly laughing and enjoying time out with her whilst the victim has been forced into hiding numerous times, to try and integrate into society from her ordeal.

The debate raged as to whether Evans should retain his previous job on a whopping one and a half million pounds, possibly extended to three million in the future. The lack of remorse from Evans and attitude to blame the victim with an easy excuse of intoxication is an utter disgrace. As a PR move, it is an even bigger catastrophe. While a criminal who serves their time should be able to re-integrate into society, a high profile position is extremely questionable.

All smiles. Evans and loyal girlfriend enjoy time out.

All smiles. Evans and loyal girlfriend enjoy time out.

We believe anyone should have a chance to be a part of society again, but Evans should not return to his over priced job, nor in a public setting. A constant reminder to the victim and to others always seen on the pitch and earning high salaries is outrageous. In a role which children and their supporting fathers view football as role models and the vitriol attached to fan support of their on pitch heroes, destroys the boundaries between crime and redemption. Evans can return to different jobs, but as a footballer on a public scale, as a role model and  convicted sex abuser, the red card should be officially shown. Failing to show this from old club Sheffield United, or any other, sends the message that excuses rape and allows it to continue. They would be just as at fault for Evans not conforming to his own red card line to retract from sex with the unwillling victim.

With the football game branded as a mob culture with fans abusing minority groups or rival club supporters Evans’ inclusion again after such wrongdoing is counter-productive. Evans should be banned from the pitch as he has given away those rights. This goes for any other footballer. The message it sends to fans is that it is okay to abuse people with verbal or physical and sexual abuse. The game will always be looked at as anything but beautiful and cast into a murky attitude as a national sport. Fans want the game to be s glorious as they feel it in their hearts. Though no amount of protecting it for the sake of it without reason will make it respectful. Should Evans return to the pitch, football’s credibility will diminish entirely. ched evans football

That isn’t something any sporting hero, club or fan should appreciate under any circumstance.

Evans even has the sheer distaste to publish a book after appealing his case to become enshrined as innocence despite serving his half-time for being a full on convicted rapist.

New England Football Captain named

New England Captain officially named

rooney cap

After Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from International football as England Captain, Manager Roy Hodgson has officially named his successor.

Taking the reins as new England Captain is Manchester United Ace Wayne Rooney.

The star, whose temper tantrums can often affect gameplay on and off the pitch was granted the job by the squad leaders yesterday.

Many believe Rooney was selected due to being ‘leftovers’ and having no-one else in line. Rooney was handed the role as ‘next in line’ as a loyalty package rather than a skill or PR image. Decisions such as this can often distort clarity to the legitimacy of the ‘beautiful game’ regarding fans, advertisers and national enthusiasts. Roy Hodgson clearly felt a public backlash and has hoped this will earn him some respect with fans after Roy rejected Rooney at the World Cup months ago as an upfront striker, something FalseFabs recognised as necessary to succeed.

gerrard retires

Hodgson, who is fastly losing respect as an manager famously crashed out of the FIFA 2014 World Cup earlier this Summer in the preliminary stages of the competition.

Roy’s Boys

With virtually none left to raise or hand rear as the next player/s to succeed (which is a damaging prospect for the game) and the squad a a team filled with empty roles and no star to ascend is not good. The team seem to remain continually stuck in the past, never capable of evolving into a modern and well rounded team filled with a score of players who can contribute to English football success. Should have given me the job. (I’m still available.)

roy hodge

The England Captaincy does not come without shambolic connotations. While many fans young and old see footballers as role models, all England Captain’s have been involved in some type of scandal in modern eras. Rooney was most famous for bedding prostitutes as a player, including an Old Aged Pensioner and recent Celebrity Big Brother winner Helen Wood who worked as a call girl.

England crash out of World Cup 2014

England leave Brazilian World Cup

after early preliminary exit

 

Since Thursday’s crushing defeat by Uruguay and Italy’s follow up loss to Costa Rica, England have crashed out of the 2014 World Cup making it the first early exit for 24 years. The extravaganza, from Rio de Janeiro in host nation Brazil, blame, disappointment and upset spurred from fans of the Three Lions squad.

 What exactly was England’s problem and can it be rectified?

The manager

roy hodgson team

As with every defeat, the manager is always the first point of call for blame. Instant calls for manager Roy Hodgson to step down were sent out by disheartened footie lovers. Hodgson, who was revealed not to give his players a pep talk before heading onto the pitch and instead allows them to quietly contemplate what the match means to them may be a starting point of enthusiastic flaw. Whilst Hodgson does not need to give huge loving appraisals to boost his team’s spirits with a heavy spout of shout, the team could benefit with a tad of enthusiasm. With a confidence boost England can thrive fuller to an extent and develop a compact beginning to tighten their on pitch performance as a unit.

We don’t believe Hodgson should resign after one entry but the formation of the team was simply to ‘look diverse’ and ‘give everyone a chance to play’ which did not benefit the team overall. Caving into PR pressure on look than skill has marred England’s shabby performance this World Cup season.

The players

New and fresh faces were added to boost a newer, fresh opportunity. The goalkeeper is the second cause of blame for letting the goal pass through to the net, obviously. While Joe Hart isn’t the best goalie out there, Mr. Elastic Man is tall, compact and stable. His catching of the ball from afar, playing more football than the players in the game and maintaining as much defence as possible is a credit unwarranted by many. Hart should not have been allowed to be so easily exposed. His teammates were not there on defence and all upfront. Where were the defence? The defence push themselves forward with all on attack. This itself leaves Hart alone and vulnerable. The only star player of the match, especially in the floundering Uruguay match, was the heading sensation Gary Cahill. The twenty-eight year old’s passion, agility and attempts to get stuck in and defend were an outstanding display that shamed the rest of the team. He needs to be used more.

The shocking actions that Frank Lampard was on the bench instead of on the pitch was a choice that is questionable. Lampard has the skills, drive and gumption to boost a forward thrust on the pitch.

Wayne Rooney complained he needed to be placed as its top striker. Instead Darren Sturridge and Raheem Sterling were the key players here. Both were doing good jobs as strikers but in the Uruguan game they were misplaced and unfortunately agreeing with Rooney, he should have been switched with Sterling, and Lampard then in Rooney’s position.

The team of young stars are a benefit to England. Baines and Henderson in particular were two who really drove a new front of defence and support, Welbeck, Jagielka and Lallana should continue to be utilised well. With more training and refinement, they could become stable positions for the squad.

The system

The system may be broken. With managers of clubs being too old and not young enough to drive full connections to the players and the game, is the job of manager and England’s team behind the scenes predominantly for old age men with no other prospects to clutch onto something other than retirement? Such decision could be sapping the lifeforce from the game by not allowing a younger range of influence to really drive home from an old gentleman’s club. This doesn’t mean expelling all the old players for young ones, the players are not the full problem of the system flaws.

Media and public

joe hart has

Flaky free.

Are we expecting too much of England before they began? Pure fan lovers of the game will thrust the need to win to establish faith in the game. As with others, hoping for the best actually doesn’t put such pressure on the team. England’s problem is to continue a level of complacency and fail to concentrate when the game is in full swing.

With more focus on adverts and media support than the game itself, the team have placed themselves into a level of ‘see how it goes’ rather than a fuller focus of making the game a success in live action. Is it all about pocketing a big chunk of salary and giving a half-hearted performance? Media makes money for clubs and the advertisers want the big and new names to front their campaigns. There is nothing wrong with good promotion but when it affects the priorities of the high earning stars and its head offices it needs to readdress the love for the game and its fans.

This World Cup for England wasn’t about winning; we are all sure about that. The point was to put in a decent performance and go far whilst recognising and building a new team mixed with old and new stars. This would give a balance of driving a new way forward for England and this needs to be continued. The problem is that England’s passion is simply not there. Whilst they have a quietened love for doing well the love is not passion. When those who have passion develop, they become too wayward with their focus and cannot contain it. England need to think and be tactile. They pass the ball, score a goal and then sit back and rest.

They need to have a closer team bond on the pitch and interconnect with a tighter unity. When Suarez scored his final goal in the Uruguay match, he was on the outside, all alone and had a clear run of the goal line with only Cahill attempting to protect Hart. Decisions like this is clear on England’s positions. It has great defence when it wants to, but when approached with a threat, whilst it has strong action to keep at bay, one always slips through the net. Saddening for fans and damaging for lively supporters, if England hone their skills, they can be much closer to a World Cup entry that we can really be proud of. Younger connections will be needed to mix with what is seen as an old, outdated and disintegrated underline of British football which aims to please fans, but simply rewards the old and unappealing financial games.

Was David Moyes Man Utd sacking a planned takeover?

Sack, Flack and Prat. Was Moyes scapegoat

for cheatster Giggs?

moyes

Adulterer and scandalous football player Ryan Giggs was hurried into the position of manger at Manchester United to replace then manager David Moyes. Conducted in suspicious circumstances, Giggs, who had a secret affair and attempted to block the leak on Twitter and other social media outlets has been hailed as a disgrace to the role. Whilst football fans, especially young ones look for role models, Giggs is not in that frame whatsoever.

glazers

Moyes, the main focus of this brunt was shafted by the club and its American owners Avram and Joel Glazer, (above) sons of involved shareholder Malcolm Glazer after ten months of bad management. On the day Moyes was sacked, rather publicly than professionally, United’s stock market value increased.

Moyes himself claims he was set up and made a scapegoat for a public sacking to have United been seen to be doing something about it. Attempting to manipulate the fans, the owners parachuted Giggs in within hours of Moyes departure. Was this a set up all along?

giggs

Despite Moyes being publicly sacked in such way, he wasn’t the greatest of manager. But without much support from players, owners and aspiring fans, it could be argued Moyes needed that very support that Sir Alex Ferguson gave to him.

As Fergie’s natural successor, Sir Alex saw something in Moyes that could continue the legacy of the club. Perhaps long stay Giggsy saw an opportunity to shove Moyes aside. It is not impossible to suggest the players were influenced by Giggs’ lockerrom gameplay instead of his average on pitch performances.

Sharing a chuckle with the 'Class of '92' setup

Sharing a chuckle with the ‘Class of ’92’ setup

American owners tend to assume the preference to the club and fans is a long stay name with a high profile and good on pitch record. The only one in the room was Giggs. They wanted Moyes out and Giggs knew it.

fergie al

Man United is in trouble. not only switching around, but choosing someone not capable based on a player profile alone which spells another disaster waiting to occur.

It is not in any context professional or respectable for the sport or the management of those involved with the club. The fans are the ones who suffer. Outside of Fergie, the management is flawed.

So footie managers beware, because your players will shove you to the sidelines when an opportunity to be a national, public hero arises. Especially if the player has been an off pitch cheat too. This is the only nature it seems they know.

One thing remains, Manchester United, Giggs and the owners have all earned themselves a messy reputation despite fans minimally cheering to hope the club retains some glory. Fans will often accept anything to have a turnaround and clubs know it. They will abuse that position to restore a faith that lies on unhealthy role models and club depravity, which can only every lead to more skeleton’s out of the cupboard.

Beckham shunted from Team GB squad

David Beckham was sensationally shunted out of a place on the Olympic football team, decided by Team GB boss, and manager of Manchester City, Stuart, now dubbed “Stu-pid” Pearce.

Pearce was able to select three “over-age” players, consisting of Craig Bellamy, Micah Richards and media stud Ryan Giggs over the 37 year old Beckham, who also became an ambassador for the Olympic Bid (in 2005) with some of Britain’s sporting heroes including Athletics runner, Dame Kelly Holmes, and Politician Tony Blair, to name a few.

The patron, who made it clear he would love to represent the country, once again, was left in seclusion by the decision.

Many once again question the validity of the Olympic Games, its organisers and Pearce.

In 1994, Pearce verbally cast a racial slur at player Paul Ince, calling him a black c**t. Pearce later admitted this, and claimed it “was not appropriate at the time.” Pearce has also been a raging alcoholic in the past.

Former England defender Danny Mills claimed “Stuart Pearce doesn’t always like confrontation and he’s struggled with big players in the past. Maybe he’s thinking that what Beckham brings with him is too much to handle.” Pearce instead felt Ryan Giggs, fresh off his own public misdemeanours, would bypass this problem.

Beckham has an astonishing 109 caps, surpassing the late Bobby Moore’s record in the sport.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp stated that “Stuart can kiss goodbye to a knighthood but credit him for being brave. He’s the manager and should pick who he wants.”

Even Newcastle native Alan Shearer chipped in. “I’m amazed as I thought he was going to be part of it after all he’s done getting the Olympics to London. “If Stuart Pearce had no intention of playing him, the very least he could have done was tell him so earlier.”

Chairman of the Olympic committee Lord Coe is expected to give Beckham a role for the event somewhere, for his sterling work in putting a stamp on the occasion.

Spurs midfielder Harry Kane also believed Beckham would have encouraged more dignified youth in football, as well sport overall – “David Beckham was down here at Spurs when he was getting fit, and it was amazing to see him in the dressing room, to talk to him because he has been through it all and is one of the greatest role models ever,” when Becks participated in a few training sessions at the hotspot down in Chigwell, Essex.

Becks also had two sites, one in L.A and the other in London comprising the David Beckham Academy, set up in 2005, encouraging others to train in football, which was forced to close in 2009.

Some people come to see Beckham for his talent; others come to see his raw hotness. Either way, with David out of the squad, most ticket sales look gloomier than usual. Many would have paid to see Beckham, without a shadow of a doubt.

If there’s one man in football, who strikes a chord with everyone, in a positive light, its David Beckham.
