  1. I don't know Luke personally, so I can't say how he feels about the whole ordeal.  How do we know for sure that he doesn't cry every night over what he has done?

     

    If somebody accidentally killed somebody close to me, then yes I'd be upset and very angry.   However, if it was an accident, in time I may be able to forgive that person.  Had it been a premeditated killing then I wouldn't have been able ever to forgive them.

     

    By all means, criticise what he has done, but what Luke did could have been done by any one of us had fate been different.   If it had been you who had done what Luke did, would you want others to eventually forgive you?

  2. Rhodes, 

     

    What Luke did was terrible, unforgivable and downright stupid.

     

    However, to tell clubs not to give him a chance is stupid as well.  Let's say, for instance, that instead of Luke McCormick driving the car it was Rhodes who committed that offence.   Does Rhodes then deserve a second chance?   Very easy to judge in cold blood.

     

    Had Luke McCormick done what Ian Watkins did, then absolutely he should never be free in a billion years.   

  3. From Marco Lino, 23 year old midfielder:

     

    'Hello my name is Marco, and I'm an Italian from Torino. 
    I have lived in North London for a year and am desperately seeking a team, I played football for 17 years and am a midfielder. 
    I always played at a professional team and also just to let know you at age 16 I had a trial with Juventus for a year. 
    My mobile is 07508771964 and I am happy to play for semi-pro, intermediate or amateur sides.'
  4. I see that the 10 contenders for this award have been announced.

     

    Just in case anybody has missed it, the 10 nominees are:

     

    Ben Ainslie

    Ian Bell

    Hannah Cockroft

    Mo Farah

    Chris Froome

    Leigh Halfpenny

    AP McCoy

    Andy Murray

    Christine Ohuruogu

    Justin Rose

     

    Quite a selection, so who do you think will win the award and who you like to win?

     

    I'm going for Andy Murray to win, but I hope (as a Welshman) that Leigh Halfpenny wins after being THE player of the successful Lions tour in Australia.

  5. If anything, he is a 'manslaughterer'.

     

    He is not a murderer - a murderer plans to kill his/her victim beforehand.

     

    Luke McCormick, as bad as he is, did not set out to murder anybody on that day.  His stupid actions resulted in death, but the deaths were accidental so by that count he is guilty of manslaughter but not of murder.

     

    Rhodes, it's like saying that if you intended to stab me to death and did so then you would be a murderer - however, if you and I got into a fight outside a pub and you caught me with a blow to the temple and I later died, you would be guilty of manslaughter as the fight would not have been pre-planned and in the heat of the moment you lashed out and sent me off to meet my maker.

  6. Hector Torres ex CD Leganés. 'I belonged to the club for 16 years playing games in all categories of the club during my training. In the 2005-2006 season I was part of the second team (CD Leganés B) in third Division. I left the club in 2009 to join Aravaca CF (Madrid-Spain) in the fifth Division then I played for EFMO Boadilla (Madrid-Spain) fifth Division and going to loan at Universidad San Marcos (Lima-Perú) second Division.  For any other information by email hachevtorres@gmail.com/ 07585907570.  I now live in South London aged 26 and am midfield/attacking midfielder/striker.'

  7. I know the headline mentions England, but a lot of the problems being faced the other side of Offa's Dyke are also affecting the England national team - old suits who care more about their precious positions in the game than actually making their national side any good.

     

    This blog is certainly food for thought on the current shambles in Welsh football:

    Wales have slid back under a 'change is bad' mentality management - make sure England don't go the same way!

     

    89% want total change - Coleman (can't cut the mustard) gone and the FAW fossils to boot.

  8. Luke will be living with a life sentence - I doubt a day goes past when he vehemently regrets what he did.

     

    However, he did not set out to murder anybody on that day.   He made a stupid decision, and has to accept responsibility for what he did, but he has done his sentence and so legally he is a free man.

     

    Personally, I think the guy is a twit (to put it mildly) but i wouldn't reserve any hatred for him.   Had he set out to kill or rape a child, then that would have been totally different.

  9.  

    I see that Kate Beckinsale will star in a forthcoming film called 'The Face of an Angel' and play an American journalist who covers the brutal killing of Meredith Kercher by Rudy Guede. Model Cara Delevingne is also rumoured to play a part as will Colin Firth and Daniel Bruhl, the latter who brilliantly portrayed Niki Lauda in the recent film Rush, it is not known as yet who will play the role of Amanda but watch this space for further news:

    Just be very careful what you say Rhodes, as that could be considered libelous.

     

    Nobody knows 100% who killed Meredith, at this juncture.   Yes, strong signs are that it was Amanda Knox but until the trial is concluded it would be folly to say that it was definitely x, y or z.
