    Without going into the details of any particular case, where does this idea come from that on completion of a jail sentence, an ex-convict shouldn't be able to play professional football again.

    Why on earth not?

    There's a very good reason why people convicted of certain offences can't do certain jobs, like someone who has downloaded kiddie porn working in a school for example, but as nobody is ever going to commit rape or death by dangerous driving on a football field, I just cannot see where the issue is.

    I think it's more to do with footballers being (supposedly) role models for the young.

    Sending out the message "hey, kids, it's ok to rape a girl and still be in an iconic profession when you've done a bit of bird" is unpalatable to many.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Set to sign a new contract

    Convicted rapist footballer Ched Evans to sign new £3million contract with Sheffield United

    The Welsh striker will be allowed out of prison on day release from July and if his fitness levels are up to scratch he will sign a new deal before Christmas

    Convicted rapist footballer Ched Evans will return to Sheffield United this summer on day-release from prison.

    And if the striker’s fitness levels are up to scratch, he will sign a £3million three-year contract before Christmas.

    Evans, 25, is due to be fully released in October after serving half of his five years for raping a 19-year-old woman.

    But the Welsh international will be allowed out on day-release from July and will return to Bramhall Lane for pre-season training while tagged.

    Negotiations to bring back Evans started after Saudi Arabian Prince Abdullah bin Mossad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, one of the world’s richest men and co-owner of Sheffield United, gave a nod of approval for his return.

    Since then manager Nigel Clough and co-chairman Kevin McCabe have frequently visited him behind bars.

    A source said: “The prince has sets his sights on promotion next season. He wants an elite team.


    “As Ched is Sheffield United’s top goal scorer the prince gave royal approval for his return. It’s now up to the club to sort things out.

    “Ched will first sign an interim three-month contract in July while on day-release. He has been training hard while in prison.

    "He is confident his fitness levels will be up to the mark and he will rejoin his team mates fully by the end of the year.

    “As long as he passes the tests, he will sign a new £18,000-a-week deal.”

    Supporters’ club chairman Pete Whitney, 78, confirmed: “Ched is coming back. He has his prime years ahead of him.

    “I am sure he will get a good reception but of course there might be a small minority who will object.”

    Evans was found guilty of raping a woman in a hotel room in Rhyl, North Wales, in April 2012.

    He admitted having sex but has *always claimed it was consensual and plans to appeal against his conviction.

    His friend, former Port Vale and Walsall defender Clayton McDonald, also admitted having sex with the same woman but was cleared of rape.

    Evans was transferred to Sheffield United in 2009 from Manchester City for £3million. He scored 35 goals for the League One club in 2011/12.

    Evans’s girlfriend Natasha Massey, who has always *championed his innocence, revealed to the Sunday People two weeks ago how she is standing by him and plans to get engaged.

    Beauty therapist Natasha, 25, who visits Evans twice a week, said: “Ched loves the club and supporters. He wants his old job back.”


    No matter my views, one bit sticks out: Supporters’ club chairman Pete Whitney, 78, confirmed: “Ched is *coming back. He has his prime years ahead of him.

    “I am sure he will get a good reception but of course there might be a small minority who will object.”

    No shit Sherlock?

    "Ched" is a name?

    Over here it is an annoying radio station.

    £18,000 a week would be sickening wages for a League One club even if he hadn't raped anyone.

    Will certainly help with his appeal though.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“
