Just he ‘deserves a second chance’ apparently. I’m sure said people would be just as forgiving if it occurred to their daughter/sister etc...

You can’t stop the bloke from working though surely, what happened? I totally disagree with this but what actually happened?

I’m sure if any female relative of yours gets slapped about you’ll be quick to give their bloke a second chance. 

Don't worry mate, I've had to deal with it in my life and it's horrible but it was repeated for years.  This was a drunken mistake which I don't  condone but willing to give the lad a chance

You don’t know what happened and you’re commenting? Or are you obtuse in general?

Drunken mistake/repeated mistake...doesn’t matter. How do we know it wasn’t repeated by him?

Why?

Doesn’t sit well with me. Not for a player of his age, standard and likely wages. Seems unnecessary at best and potentially very damaging at worst. 

Im surprised Lansdown has sanctioned this. Its at odds with how he’s worked hard to ensure our club is perceived positively, and in a large part we’ve done very well and benefitted on that front in the last few years. The Ayling sale is widely attributed to SL not being best pleased of it making front page news. I’m not saying it’s the only reason we sold him, but it wouldn’t have helped. 
 

Now with the Women’s Aid statement, I’m intrigued to see how the club reacts. Their statement is bang on for me, and puts quite a spotlight back at the club. As others have said I think it’s a perfect opportunity to respond directly and have that conversation. But with that must surely come some kind of justification that they (the club) feel its justified and right to sign Simpson. 

I’m intrigued too at how this signing has been agreed between Pearson, Ashton and Lansdown. It’s the first player Pearson has signed and clearly wanted. I don’t think this signing would sit any better with Lansdown than it does with me and many others here. But Lansdown isn’t going to want to block Pearson’s choice, or exercise any kind of control to undermine a manager who’s future is still up in the air. If Lansdown says no, then Pearson has every right to say cheerio (and we know how well that would go down). So Lansdown says yes, and we are where we are.

My niggling doubt that the club are still capable of ballsing it up when it comes to Pearson’s long term appointment are not remotely settled by this signing. Quite the opposite.

This signing shows that Pearson is prepared to be ruthless in shaping the team exactly the way he wants it. Maybe this was also some sort of ‘test’ for SL to see if he would have a free hand to make the signings he wants. I’d imagine SL had been uneasy about the signing but sanctioning this now gives Pearson the green light to build HIS team.

My personal view about Simpson is that people should be given a chance to rehabilitate themselves. Around 1 in 3 men in this country have a criminal conviction in their lifetime!! Give the guy a chance.

You’re accusing everyone of being wet-wipes, but don’t know what he did?

Strangled his gf. Then used his money and position to get his sentence reduced - no remorse.

For me - no remorse = no second chances.

So simpson puts in a shift every game in a red shirt puts a tackle in, Steps up gets a winning header what we going to do not celebrate.. Come on it's his past he's here to give game know how.If Pearson trusts him then I'm not going question it.

Yeah and I bet some of those are the first to say men's mental health is awful in this Country.

The guy made a mistake, when drunk, he had the punishment. He doesn't need his entire career and life taken from him. 

Cancel culture..

Why not? That's what happens to other criminals.

Pearson used Mariappa right back a lot at Watford. 

I would not be surprised to Pearson bring in a big Huth type centre back in the summer. And have Mapps as a right back and centre back option.

Maybe rotate the right back spot a bit between Simpson and Mariappa. Either way we hopefully get a reliable, experienced right back who can defend.

Try and stick with a new dominant centre back alongside Kalas most games.

Left back go for more of an attacking option in Dasilva or Pring

If he was a teacher, social worker, police man, any job that requires a DBS check he would have lost his career.
 

As football has no morals he’s fine to carry on. I hope Lansdown feels ashamed

I'm sure he is really bothered by what some guys on OTIB have to say

Not quite as simple as you portray. If someone slaps or does worse to a child during their career in childcare, yes you are correct they forfeit that career for life. If their career choice poses no harm to vulnerable people then they are free to return to that career generally.

The vast majority of careers do not require an enhanced or even basic DBS check.

He didn’t have his punishment. Read up on how acted after being found guilty

Unless you are an advocate of locking all criminals up and throwing away the key don’t you think it’s better that these people work once they’ve done the time? I’m not a great fan of this signing myself but your logic seems a bit flawed.

I’m not saying he shouldn’t work again but he should be allowed to work in the public eye where’s he looked up to as a role model. I don’t want my season ticket money going anywhere near him
