Bristol Rob

Dean Saunders (Merged)

Recommended Posts

Jailed for 10 weeks for failing to provide a specimen of breath.

Maybe he'll use this time to work on a new 'after dinner' routine, rather than the entirely fictional account of when Brian Clough apparently tried to sign him, which turns in to 15 minute routine that seemingly mocks an addict.

I feel so flat; there I was clicking the thread in the confident expectation of:

Linked with Rovers.

Guess both Dean and the 'Fewer' are comfortable with solitary confinement.

Don't know if that cheers you up at all?

Does not sound to me that he's mocking him. Sounds like he's merely telling a funny story.

I do think he's a bit of a c**k tho.

He’s mocking . 

Brian Clough was a larger than life eccentric with a drink problem who despite all that achieved miracles at, not one , but two unfashionable provincial clubs . 

He deserves more respect from a bloke who isn’t fit to tie the great man’s bootlaces .

His story makes BC out to be a complete clown and a fool and he only uses it because people are still interested in the legend that was Cloughie years after his death. 

I don’t find the story funny at all and I’m sure that if BC were alive today then he wouldn’t dare tell it.

Well said. So much good with our club at the moment do we really need to highlight the negatives 're Saunders and Dowling?

This isn't North Korea. 

Both things are news and if it people want to discuss then, why shouldn't they? It doesn't take anything at all away from our recent success on and off the pitch.

Totally agree, Major. The story was also disputed by Alan Hill. Nothing funny about it regardless:

Dean Saunders and Brian Clough – a story that went viral but doesn’t finish there

There are few things that get me to turn off, turn over. Love Island , Eastenders , Britains got talent or similar, and Dean ****** Saunders. 
Annoying, odious man, doesn't surprise me he did this.

BT will probably have him back. They don't mind employing ex-footballers with questionable morals and views.

Having had a close friend hit and killed by a drunk driver I find it hard to regard the actions of someone who decides to get behind the wheel when over the limit as merely "a mistake".

Everyone knows the science behind it now. There is no excuse.

The key element is that the person he ridicules is no longer here to defend himself and even if it were true it is no different to poking fun at disabled people.

Alcoholism is an illness.

 I am being a judgmental bastard because I find it highly distasteful. 

There are hundreds of ‘ funny ‘ stories told about BC , this one is excruciatingly painful .

Still I suppose when Saunders is released from his cell he can go back to organising trips to Bedlam.

I'm talking about the lies he spouted about Clough which are well documented.

Awful pundit and manager - was a good player though. 

He failed to take a breath test 3 times and even pleaded not guilty after until today court date. He deserves his jail time. Everyone makes mistakes but this is a serious one which he has shown no remorse and is even now trying to get his sentences reduced.

Completely false story made up by Saunders to augment his after dinner speeches.

If there is anything worse than a drunk driver then it’s a drunk driver who doesn’t have the stones to do the station breath test. Having given CPR to an innocent driver who was hit by a drunk driver I feel quite strongly about this stuff. As mentioned above, people know the score now. If someone decides to get behind the wheel after they’ve been drinking then for me they deserve everything that’s coming to them.

Yep. Both had/have a problem with use of alcohol. 

Only one got a prison sentence though. 

Brian laughing his tits off somewhere right now I hope.

Here, here.

The dangers are huge & potentially catastrophic. Young, old & complete families potentially wiped out through pure selfishness.

Where is the moral compass?

Just like those people who drive whilst holding & texting with their mobile phones - despicable cretins who should be banned for life.

Still, old Deano will probably be the next face of Santander Bank upon his release from jail (if he serves any real time of course).

Sadly, the Santander situation is where we are at with this kind of disgraceful behaviour.

Im guessing this is his first offence?

For the judge to give that sort of sentence, he must have took a real dislike to him.

Im sure most would get a fine ban or community service.

Fair play to his nibs.

We need more judges like this.

This.

******* weird how many people seem desperate to defend him. Did the crime, tried to get out of the time; got called on his bullshit arrogance and is serving his debt to society.

Always came over as a self-regarding clown as a manager; shame that seems to have extended to his personal life.

Definitely one of the worst pundits... and with the dross on the radio and TV that's going some.

Right up there with Chris Sutton on 5Live.

Very unusual for him to get a custodial sentence for drink driving.

Normally it would only apply if it was aggravated by causing damage or injury to others.

Hate drink drivers of course; but not surprised that they are appealing the sentence.

Even the judge must have thought it was at the top end of sentencing; as has granted him bail, pending the appeal. Rather than sending him straight to custody.

Imagine he was well tanked up and a total dick at the Police Station. Refusal of roadside and station tests results in an automatic ban but to get 10 weeks porridge on top of that must mean that Police statements were quite damning.

Not according to the BBC;

Saunders was refused bail and his application to appeal will be heard at the crown court at a later date to be fixed, Mersey Cheshire Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed.

Saunders, who was sent straight to prison, was "in shock" and "disappointed" with the sentence, his lawyer said.

Failing to provide? @Fordy62

Normally carries an automatic 18 month ban on first offence.

If you know you're way over, then briefs will always advise you to not provide. If you are 3/4 times over, it would be 2-3 year ban.

A long time since I've been on the intoximeter 😁

I think the judiciary know that the sentence was on the harsh side. Hence why he's only spent one day in jail, and then been released on bail pending his appeal.

Will get knocked down to 2 year ban I reckon.

Maybe old plod will release their arrest/custody footage? That'll probably do as good a job if finishing off his media career as a 10 week sentence.

You may well be right, but there was no early plea so no reduction and the wanton disregard for the process by not providing. 

Either way, grade A bell End.

Unfortunately he'll get he sentence reduced to either suspended sentence or community service. His brief will advise him to show the required amount o f contrition.

A shame because everything I've read- not least the disgusting slurs on Clough (with no regard for the feelings of his family) who can't answer back - shows he's a massive knob.
