There's a Pako one to!
Probably wouldn't be getting compared to van Dijk by people if he were white...What do you guys make of Rhys Williams?
Just been reading a piece on the Echo comparing him to Van Dijk (physically big, calm, confident, good communicator etc). Would be nice to think we had another talent coming through at CB...
Will refrain from saying too much as there will likely be a court case but I hope they both recover fast and that whatever justice is merited comes to pass.I didn't really know where to put this, so apologies, but Shamal George and his brother hurt last night while out in the city centre, in a suspected racially motivated attack:
Merseyside Police are studying CCTV footage of an alleged racially motivated attack on the Liverpool goalkeeper Shamal George in a bar early on Saturday morningwww.theguardian.com
I thought in cases such as this it could get the site into trouble? Speculating as to who did it, how many, if it was racially motivated, provoked or unprovoked etc etc?It shouldn't be a problem unless you're posting something that could identify the accused, and I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest nobody here knows who these knobends are.
It's obviously up to Matt and Max what they want the site policy to be, but as part of my job I've been writing about criminal offences in various publications for over 20 years. It's about potentially prejudicing any eventual court case, so what you can't do is claim to have any specific knowledge of the incident ("I was there and he definitely done it, it were that Joe Bloggs from up round our way") or the people accused of the charges, but there's no reason there has to be a blanket ban on discussion around it. People have had plenty to say about various drink driving offences involving players in and outside the club in recent times, and it's no different.I thought in cases such as this it could get the site into trouble?
