Sounds fairly plausible. If he wants first team football I think he's gonna have to drop to our level, at least for the time being. I can't imagine he'll ever reach the championship again anyway, but who knows.
He'll have a house in Sheffield so not far and hopefully his mate will have good words to say about the club. Or will he....?

I think this crime (no matter what you think- he was found guilty by a court of law) means i would never support him a town shirt. He's a very very good striker, but hes a convicted rapist. So no. No never

Are you expecting every single person who has ever been in prison to come out and never work again? It's a topic that has been gone over many times before. The punishment is there for a reason, that is what is set by the court. It isn't 5 years with the add on of 10 years of no work when you get out.

Quite how Evans was ever convicted of rape is absolutely beyond me when you consider the evidence.


It's taken a while but I agree with every word of the first bit of this...

Where we separate is around the view that somehow the courts got it wrong. I cannot remember but I'm pretty sure that there would have been an appeal which presumably, as he still served his sentence', failed....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Solution - flash some cash......to somewhere like Lilleshall to sort out why Pittman & Arnold are constantly getting injured - either of their physical conditions being solved would be like signing the goal scoring striker we need - both have shown real glimpses of quality - let's put some money into top class national standard treatment to get them 100% cured and fit, or at least know if they are season long liabilities???

Or is that too simple an answer ???

Whilst I understand the 'served his time' argument I would feel deeply uncomfortable cheering a convicted rapist.

I haven't got a list, I play it on a felon by felon basis.

No issue for you?

Very valid point. As on another post, if the Arnold situation is a genuine injury, then we should have had it sorted a long time ago.
