Gillingham doing what football does best, wins them League two title, struggle this term then they sack Martin Allen. I pray Bradford have some sense and keep Parkinson for a long time.

Nice to see Michael Parkinson doing something with his free time now that he's not interviewing celebrities

Town Green under elevens of Ashton-in-Makerfield won a league match recently 16-1, only to suffer a 13-0 defeat the following week in a cup-tie. Football's ups and downs. Interestingly, only nine goals count in league games. I wonder what would be the result in the unlikely score of 10-9?

This England-Poland match is bloody good. England really going for it.

Ukraine only won 8-0 because San Marino had 2 players sent off - discuss.

Bloody Andorra let me down again at the bookies, I thought they might have scored at least one goal in qualification matches, 0-30, not as bad as San Marino though. 1-54

I wish they'd all learn to say football correctly. 2 distinct syllables - foot and ball. NOT fubell, NOT fubellers. The quality of their diction is starting to match the quality of the game!

Such snobbery from an egalitarian!

 

Anyway, it's pronounced 'sock-err'.

Obviously, I wasn't at the trial ... but the evidence seems a bit dodgy and the sentence seems excessive for the circumstances. So I hope he gets a right to appeal.

He's hardly an impartial observer.

True, but: -

 

 - The  lady in question was hardly drunk and incapable when she was recorded on the hotel security camera footage, as she claimed in court to have been at the time.

 

 - She also deleted her Facebook comments from that evening, possibly because she didn't think it would help her case.

 

 - According to Ched's webpage, at the time of their being charged with rape .... 'the police had no forensic evidence to link either man to the sexual act, nor did the police have a complaint of rape.'

 

 - Two men were involved, one was found not guilty, one was found guilty.

 

 - Six witness statements were not presented in court; they were not supportive of the claimant's case.

 

 - He's served eighteen months and has another year to go. I feel that, given the seeming irregularities, eighteen months is enough.

Can you see any flaws in the above?

His cause is admittedly not an open and shut case; otherwise he would have been found not guilty.

 

However, despite the indicated irregularities he was apparently refused a right of appeal. On the face of it, this seems strange. Was he refused a right of appeal to avoid embarrassing the way the evidence was handled by the judge, the CPS and the police?

 

He is not a superstar footballer or, as far as I am aware, part of any gangland clan. He seemingly has a degree of support from his local community ... the claimant has reportedly moved away (understandable) and been given a new identity (surely all rape victims are not offered this option as a standard policy?).
