Meant to say:

A penalty and 3 points every game.

That seems incredibly harsh if the actual offences were driving without due care and attention - leaving out all the Covid issues and the fact that he may have been pissed as these were not part of the charge I assume?

It was reported that he already had 6 points for speeding, with the Due Care and being clocked at 98mph on the motorway there is another 9 points.

I'm re-reading Irvine Welsh, and I can't help but read this phonetically!

If he was pissed, he'd have done time.  This is a build up of all his careless driving offenses.

Whatever it is, he got what he deserved.

Separate the footballer from the man.

He’s a legend on the pitch, but has not covered himself in the same glory off it. Yes he’s young and yes he’s an easy target but too often he has let himself (and the club) down. Hopefully for him, he can put this behind him and act as the role model we all want our kids to see.

And a hat trick Thursday would be nice!!

having being bombarded with live updates and jail predictions from my 'friends' from the other side, they have gone very quiet
Maybe they are too busy planning a protest march through the centre of Birmingham, I do hope they don't get lost

More than 9 months and £82k for one case of speeding and one case of driving without due care?  Are you really seperatig out the Covid thing here and treating the case on it's merits or do you think the legal system should make examples of people as they see fit?

Footballers are terrible role models. Well, not all, many show great dedication to applying what gifts they were blessed with to be able to make a modest or decent career and living from the game. Just the talented ones, with their infidelity, night-club owning, gambling, drug taking, drinking and tax dodging, and I frankly wouldn't trust the likes of 'The GOATs' in a crisis to do something even as unnecessary as be able to open a can of sardines that was already open. Your charity work is admirable, we all thank you for that, but ffs may your influence on my child end with that and their envy of your mastery of a football.
