Guardiola doesn't take transfer advice from his players. He barely takes parking advice.

I also doubt he wants Jack for his parking advice.

I hope he's not going to drive over someone.

Is driving whilst on a phone a specific charge or is that covered by careless driving?

The former, although this only covers using the phone to 'interactively communicate' - in a case last year the High Court said it didn't apply to a driver using his phone to video a crash site, but new legislation will basically cover handling the phone for any purpose.

It could also be covered by driving carelessly, but makes it less a matter of opinion I suppose.

Ta, given that the case was that he had been driving carelessly for such a distance I thought it might have been that they spotted him on the phone.

He has admitted his guilt to the two Careless driving charges AND he has had the failure to stop or report dismissed. So why is the Prosecutor going through loads of evidence for (according the the Evils minute by minute).

edit: as for the October 18th, again rightly done but he was going to a job that the government had deemed allowed so how could he "technically in breach of the ‘stay at home’ Coronavirus guidance at the time." And does careless driving trump speeding as he doesn't seem to have been charged with that.

TBH he deserves his ban and it sounds like he was lucky it wasn't more with the account from March but I'm still wondering why all the evidence if he has pleaded guilty.
it is standard practice to review the evidence even if a guilty plea is entered.

Ok. Still think the bit about technically he was breaching the "stay at home" when he was obviously "going to work" is needless though.

The District Judge asked whether the footballer could come to court to be sentenced this afternoon, but Grealish’s lawyer couldn’t get hold of him, so he’ll be sentenced on December 15th

Seems a strange setup...surely if sentencing was scheduled for this afternoon Grealish could and should have been there.

Ridiculous behaviour all round, very lucky that he didn't injure himself or anyone else. Leaving the scene of the accident seems to have worked in his favour if the reports from the security guard are to be believed.

No problem, West Brom have admitted it was actually them driving and they’ll take the 9 points.

You don't always have to attend court - often, particularly for relatively minor driving offences, you can notify pleas, financial means and mitigation by form.  So he wasn't required at court and the judge only wants him there because there's a likelihood he will be disqualified.

For more serious offences you're bailed (or not) to attend court and a warrant is issued if you don't attend without good reason.

You don't have to be there in person if you can only be fined.

EDIT: I defer to counsel above.

The court heard he was seen tailgating other vehicles on the M42 and driving his Range Rover at 98 mph by police observing him in an unmarked vehicle.


Well some have been saying he’s too slow sometimes.

Don't we play Burnley on the 15th so he won't be present in court for the final hearing either.

Really disappointed to hear he was doing 90mph on the day of Leicester game, must've been late for the team bus. I can remember years back Hendrie crashing on the Aston Expressway and he was quite lucky just to get a few cuts and bruises.

Think the first incidents during lockdown were down to boredom as silly as it was but doing himself no favours with last month's incident so imagine he'll get a driving ban for a few months.

Well it sounds like the rest of the world could do with him having a driving ban.

Yep, my thoughts exactly.
Take his toys off him. He probably won’t learn from it, but at least it’s one less knobhead on the road.

For clarity, I’m only referring to Jack as a knobhead in relation to owning and driving a car.
