Can't see much in this Maguire fight, he's so slow the fight would be over by the time he got there.

It's our fans apparently who've goaded him and he's bitten hahaha. I'm surprised by this to be honest I didn't think he was like that.

I bet they would have a field day. Lucky for Maguire his face fits eh.

Reports in the Greek press that his sister got stabbed which led him to be enraged like the Hulk. Apparently took 5 guys to subdue him when they finally arrested him.

Tbf I thought it was funny at first, but an insane reaction is actually pretty understandable if you’re out on holiday with your family and some cunt stabs your sister.

Interesting... The report I was reading yesterday made no mention of that stabbing incident?? All it said was that there was an altercation between a few blokes and when the Police turned up he got involved in a scuffle and 2 officers ended up being knocked to the ground so he was arrested..

Yeah I read that too. And I have no idea if these Greek reports are credible or not tbh, but if that is true... I actually have a bit of sympathy for him.

If the initial reports are true, lol what a dickhead.

New Manchester United signing Isak Hansen-Aaroen confirmed via Instagram post from the young player, via the Mirror. 

The Norwegian forward, who only turned 16 yesterday has joined the Red Devils from his club Tromso.

It would be fair to say United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knew about the player, due to the fact that they are both from Norway and Hansen-Aaroen is considered a young star in the country. (Shoot) Arrow.png.4272f90fe057b995bae760bd19a18997.png

I wouldn't believe anything of what you hear in the press, good or bad. There will be a PR campaign trying to smooth over his reputation, always happens with Manchester United players. Does anyone remember Ryan Giggs punching his girlfriend in the 1990s? No they don't, they've got the best PR machine in football. Giggs is as odious as John Terry but seems to have gotten away with it.

Reading the report from the Guardian, and came across this. 

Quote

Maguire, who was named in England’s squad on Tuesday while the trial was ongoing, allegedly told police, “Do you know who I am? I am very rich, I can give you money,” the court heard as the player went on trial days after being arrested for allegedly assaulting a policeman during a late-night brawl on Mykonos.

The assertion by two police officers who appeared as key witnesses for the prosecution was among a host of unsavoury claims that emerged at a hearing that Maguire’s lawyer, Alexis Anagnostakis, had desperately tried to postpone arguing he had formally received the charge sheet only hours earlier.

If true, what an absolute twat.

The defender was alleged to have attempted to bribe law enforcers after being taken to Mykonos’s police station in the wake of the brawl. As the severity of the incident hit home, the centre-back was described by one of the two police officers as not only resisting arrest but pleading to be released. “Please, let me go. I am very rich. I can pay. I am the leader of Manchester United,” he allegedly said.

Another on-duty officer who had rushed to the scene to break up the fight described how he was pushed so hard by the footballer as he tried to detain him that he fell on his back and had to be injected with painkillers.

:coffee:

Bringing the club's name into a police scuff alone should see him warming his sofa for a few games I'd imagine. What a dick. 

Edit: The only time this ever works is when you say the following phrase "But I am a police officer too"

What will the punishment be? A 5 year contract extension at Manure?

Also: Why did he try to avoid going to court? Shit at defending?

Sounds like you can trade your prison sentence for a monetary fine, which, if true, is what’s going to happen here. He’ll probably get a hefty fine from United, not be considered for England for a while and it’ll be forgotten in a year’s time. 

There’s no actual evidence here, though. No police body cams because they don’t have them in Greece. No other witnesses. No footage of anything. It’s the testimonies of three Greek police officers vs some drunk English people and I’m not shocked that the judge has favoured the three police testimonies.

Because you're allowed to in Greece. Hence why he was able to fly home because he pleaded not guilty. 

He's been given a suspended sentence of 21 months. 

So just has to avoid going to Greece or any of their islands for 2 years pretty much.

We don't know the full story so very hard to judge. Not going to stick up for him exactly but it does feel like there are gaps in the stories and something smells a bit off about it all given Maguire has always come across a fairly upstanding bloke. But when alcohol is involved, these things escalate fast.

That being said, Maguire is captain of his club. He plays for his country. He is in the public eye. He has a responsibility to acknowledge that. Being in amongst a group of lads without protection of minders or whatever is going to attract trouble, especially if others don't control themselves.

He should be wise enough by now to know there are certain places or situations you do not put yourself into as a famous person. That's where he went wrong.

Asking for trouble and unfortunately for him, it's found him. Looks a bit of a tit now and he'll get some flack no doubt, probably even lose a bit of respect from others.

But he will be back, he's made a mistake, we all have.

Eh? Was CHO scrutinised by the press? Like, at all? When the story broke out, nearly every one defended him as innocent until proven guilty. 

The only criticism was that he was inviting women to his house when the entire country was in quarantine. Should he not be criticised for that?
