He's nasty piece of work. I would boycott the club if he played for us.

I think the FA should ban him for life - he is a convicted sex offender (with something like another 12 convictions!).

A nasty player, never liked him.

From wikipedia:


December 22, 1997: Playing for Dulwich against St Thomas's Hospital in amateur match, headbutted opponent then punched him in the face, fracturing his cheek and eye socket. Convicted at Camberwell Youth Court of wounding. 80 hours' community service, 250 compensation.
May 10, 1999: Convicted at Tower Bridge Magistrates' Court of theft from a person, two counts of fraudulent use of vehicle licence document and theft from a car. Fined a total of 240.
January 3, 2002: Convicted at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court of drink-driving. Fined 450 and banned for nine months; fined 200 for driving without insurance.
January 10, 2002: Used a cloned credit card to buy a 1,200 laptop computer. When discovered by retailer, smashed a glass panel when caught. Convicted at Greenwich Magistrates' Court of attempting to obtain property by deception. Given six-month community rehabilitation order. Told to pay 100 compensation for criminal damage. Later told probation officer that he was working as a Laborer for his father, while contracted to Gillingham.
May 10, 2002: Caught driving a stolen 32,000 BMW convertible. Pleaded not guilty. In first trial at Inner London Crown Court, cleared by a jury of assaulting PC Mark Searle after claiming he was trying to diffuse "vicious row" between the officer and friend. In re-trial, again pleaded not guilty. Defending solicitor advocate Michael Conning commented in reference to his client: "His reputation will be tarnished forever, whatever success he achieves, he'll always be referred to in a Tyson-esque way as someone who has had a criminal past and that is a considerable penalty." Jailed for 18 months - reduced to nine on appeal - for receiving stolen goods. Served five months, returned to Gillingham's team within two days of his release.
June 13, 2003: Approached two women in a Soho bar, and when rejected chased them through the streets with a belt wrapped round his fist. Cab driver called police about a "disturbance" in Berwick Street, Soho. After street arrest, one woman said King punched her. Admitted at Bow Street Magistrates' Court two common assaults. Fined 1,000, ordered to pay 500 compensation and 100 costs. Five weeks after the incident, solicitor told police King couldn't make a scheduled appointment at police station as he was attending a drug rehabilitation clinic. In his later trial in 2009, King told the jury under oath that he had never taken drugs.
May 10, 2006: Approached stranger Claudia Canadas in Leicester Square. Slapped her bottom and then her face. When police attended, spat at her. Admitted at Bow Street Magistrates' Court to using threatening or abusive behaviour. Fined 300, and ordered to pay 500 compensation and 55 costs.
November 12, 2008: While on loan to Hull City, involved in a fracas with teammate Dean Windass in a casino in Scarborough. King was alleged to have headbutted Windass following an argument. Hull City stated that the matter had been dealt with internally, and both players remained with the club. Windass later described the incident as a "storm in a teacup".
December 5, 2008: Caught speeding at 106 miles per hour on a stretch of road with a speed limit of 60mph. Banned from driving for 56 days
December 10, 2008: Five days after his driving ban, and three days after being told by his wife she was expecting their third child, arrested on suspicion of punching a 20 year-old female university student in the face in the Soho Revue Bar, causing a broken nose and split lip for which she was treated in hospital. Later charged with sexual assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Prosecuting QC Roger Daniells-Smith, said after the case that had the Crown made a bad character application on time, the jury would have been told about his previous convictions. After several preliminary hearings he pleaded not guilty to the charges at his trial at Southwark Crown Court on 26 October 2009, claiming he was a victim of mistaken identity. Three days later he was found guilty of sexual assault and ABH, having been identified in court by several witnesses. Sentenced to 18 months in prison, told to register as a sex offender for seven years, pay 3,125 compensation to victim and 1,800 prosecution costs. It was announced by Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan in interview on Sky Sports that King would be having his contract terminated with immediate effect.

If there's any justice in the world King would never earn a penny out of football ever again.

But as there's no morals in our game the likelyhood is that a club will take him on but I would seriously consider boycotting if it was us.

Yeah of course I came over all PK but if you look at his record, prison, fines etc arent working, and anyone who grops women then punches them so hard in the face it breaks their nose, just because she didnt like it, needs some drastic treatment of some kind IMO. The idea that we would be interested in signing him I find appalling, Ive never thought of boycotting palace in 30 years but that would do it for me, I honestly dont think I could support Palace with him playing for us. Everyone deserves a 2nd change but King has had 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 9th chance, this last crime just shows hes learnt absolutely nothing and he clearly has no respect for anyone.

David of Kent
31-10-2009, 01:00 PM
There will be those that will argue everybody deserves to earn their living again after they've served their time. I just have no clue how supporters accept it though. For example, Lee Hughes, his act resulted in the death of another man, and he accentuated this by running from the scene. King has a long history of crimes, particularly it would seem toward women, behind him.

I seriously don't think I could support Palace if either of these were in our team. I've supported CPFC for 35 years too, but my heart just couldn't be in it. How could I cheer a goal scored by either man? It's one thing saying "yes do your time, now get on with your life", but quite another to ask me to celebrate in his "achievements" once he's free

He'll get a decent deal somewhere. Lee Hughes killed someone and was allowed to pretty much resume his career where he left off, and barring a few interesting months when he started at Oldham seems to have put it behind him in terms of his career as much as he'll ever be allowed to. I expected a much stronger, prolonged opposition to his return than has actually happened, personally. As by that logic King's return will be a breeze.

Something's up on this, definitely though. With a list of crimes as long as his with assaults on women prominent, two stretches inside, the apalling character to deny everything he's been accused of and no intention to face up to it, and so on I just think there's a point where you shouldn't be allowed to just go straight back into a cosy existence as a footballer. But there isn't.

Clubs will see him as a decent player on a free, that's it. They'll be queuing up.

Crumbs. That is some rap sheet. I had no idea. Were the clubs he played for aware. This is not a young man making a mistake. This is a violent serial criminal. 18 months is a joke. I hope football has finished with him. We should bump this thread in 2011 the moment a club even thinks of signing him

Sadly I agree with much of that - it's symptomatic of the cancer eating away in football that fans will accept convicted criminals at their club providing they do well. Hughes killed somebody and tried to evade justice, and King punched a woman in the face for not responding to his (crude) advances, yet Hughes has been playing for sometime since his release and King's agent is already bragging about how many clubs will be queuing up at his door on his release.

Football is all about the money - Newcastle kept Barton instead of sacking him as they should have done last year as they knew he was a valuable asset to them regardless of his disgraceful behaviour.

I don't buy the 'served his sentence' line. His list of offences and lack of remorse demonstrates a complete arrogance which shows that he has no interest in being a good human being - he is only interested in perpetuating the persona with which he has surrounded himself. I would boycott Palace rather than see King play for us.

01-11-2009, 08:41 AM
18 months is a joke for this asshole,but its fairly typical of our justice system,i dont think it makes any difference that the person punched is a woman.A young lad we know who is not scum,knows right from wrong and all that,got 18 months for beating up a total piece of scum who he pulled off a woman, scum had knocked her out,but continued kicking and punching her as she lay on ground.the lad we know pleaded guilty got 18 months,the other bloke got tagged despite pleading not guilty and having a very long list of convictions.Mark is out now but despite his boss holding his job open for him cant yet return to work as they travel about and have to stay overnight,he cant do this because he has a tag for further six months

I hope kings wife divorces him and takes every penny he has,he gets a pay as you play deal somewhere and is crippled in his first game back,now that sounds a bit more like justice!

I think Arsene Wenger has shown the football morality side on King.
He says " when he has paid his sentance of course you would consider signing someone like that Otherwise you would never forgive anyone anything"

I really think he should have kept his gob shut on this one. Although I do agree that King should not be banned from football(many will disagree) I think that any club employing him(and they will) will show that Football is morally corrupt. I could understand employing him if it was a first offence,but the guys past proves he is a total animal. He has been given the privilige in life of playing football and making millions and to abuse it in this way is unforgiveable. I hope he appeals against his term and it is doubled,with his previous 3 years is a fairer term.

Add Woodgate to that "list of shame"

Why Gerrard?

I'm embaressed when he plays for England personally. Yeah hes an amazing footballer but we all saw the video of what he did. He was found innocent by a court of Liverpool fans (luckily for him) or he would be top of the list surely. I trust my own judgement more than that of the British legal system sometimes.

I'd like to see Tony step aside on this one, but I doubt he will. Not for any monetary reasons, but I get the impression he stands by his footballers, in good and bad. That's his prerogative.

It's a sad fact that there will always be clubs desperate enough to keep the likes of King (and Barton, Bowyer etc) in employment. What ever the level some one will want to give them a chance for their own ends.

I trust no one at Palace ever gives anyone like King a chance. Some one will though.

"Violently assualting" a fellow footballer, or more precisely elbowing them, is a lot different from sexually assaulting and then breaking the nose of a 5ft, 20 year old female by punching them in the face.

Being a thug on the football field is one thing. Having a record for sexual violence against women is is quite another. I can't see how any manager would defend this behaviour...except Wenger, cos he's a ****.

If SJ still owns the club when this **** gets out of jail I cannot see us signing him under any circumstances. SJ being outspoken in his views on football could never justify signing him. And in any case, despite his appalling record and clubs knowing they will be able to offer him a lot less in wages than he was on previously there is still no way we could afford him anyway, for once that has to be a good thing.

He'll get a decent deal somewhere. Lee Hughes killed someone and was allowed to pretty much resume his career where he left off, and barring a few interesting months when he started at Oldham seems to have put it behind him in terms of his career as much as he'll ever be allowed to. I expected a much stronger, prolonged opposition to his return than has actually happened, personally. As by that logic King's return will be a breeze.

Something's up on this, definitely though. With a list of crimes as long as his with assaults on women prominent, two stretches inside, the apalling character to deny everything he's been accused of and no intention to face up to it, and so on I just think there's a point where you shouldn't be allowed to just go straight back into a cosy existence as a footballer. But there isn't.

Clubs will see him as a decent player on a free, that's it. They'll be queuing up.

I think Arsene Wenger has shown the football morality side on King.
He says " when he has paid his sentance of course you would consider signing someone like that Otherwise you would never forgive anyone anything"

I really think he should have kept his gob shut on this one. Although I do agree that King should not be banned from football(many will disagree) I think that any club employing him(and they will) will show that Football is morally corrupt. I could understand employing him if it was a first offence,but the guys past proves he is a total animal. He has been given the privilige in life of playing football and making millions and to abuse it in this way is unforgiveable. I hope he appeals against his term and it is doubled,with his previous 3 years is a fairer term.

Of course he can't appeal it now - that is just Finnigan (a man I am rapidly losing all respect for in view of what went on over Moses as well) trying to put some kind of positive spin on it - if King was really sorry and accepted he had done wrong and was prepared to for example go to anger management classes etc then you might think about him being given another chance but he is just bad to the bone - and there must be a high chance of him doing it again considering his previous.

From the Times http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article6896226.ece

Premier League footballer with a history of violence against women was jailed for 18 months yesterday for punching a student in the face after she rejected his aggressive sexual advances in a nightclub.

Marlon King, who earned about 1 million a year, was sacked by his club, Wigan Athletic, after being found guilty of groping a 20-year-old woman and breaking her nose with a single punch. He was out drinking last December to celebrate his wife’s pregnancy,

...

In 2003 he was convicted of two counts of common assault after chasing two women through the streets of Soho with a belt and buckle wrapped round his right fist. Three years later he was fined for threatening behaviour after slapping a woman and spitting at her when the police arrived.

Why not? If the evidence exists to support an appeal why should an innocent person have to live with a record of a conviction they don't deserve? I'm not saying King is innocent, but having completed a sentence barely seems good enough reason to disallow an appeal. If he won that appeal then he'd be entitled to compensation surely?

Also, has he actually completed his sentence? He was initially jailed for 18 months. That time isn't up so I imagine he's been released on some form of conditional licence ie. he's still serving his sentence, just not inside.

Have to say Finnigan was less than impressive when I heard him speak, ducking the question about what rehabilitation work King had done in prison, instead he made a big point about the fact that he had been given 18 months and only served 9, therefore he had been a good prisoner, that was until it was pointed out to him that was about the norm.

I think there is a smart way for Marlon King to help to show he is really sorry for what he has done. He should join a club but not as part of their playing staff and help with community work and training youth teams for a season on normal wages i.e giving something back for the talent he has and showing he can act responsibly. If he does this and doesn't get in trouble he could then be offered a playing contract. It would be like an extended community service and would give him the opportunity to show he can be trusted.

I disagree.

Certain professions have a duty to at least appear, respectable and to set an example for others. Judges, Police, Religious leaders would fall into that category, but also those in the public eye, celebrities and premiership footballers.

If a builder went back to building after serving time for what King has done, then I see no problem in that.

However, builders aren't emulated by kids who look up to pro footballers and are influenced by their behaviour. Builders aren't hero worshipped by thousands of fans each saturday, they don't represent their firm as a pro fooballer represents their club. And builders certainly are not in the public eye as much as footballers are. For the luxery and material wealth their talent brings they have a duty of responsibility to act as role models.

KIng has a criminal history, including violence against women. Have a read of this article.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article6896226.ece

What's even worse is that he still isn't repentant. He was an arsehole in prison, felt sorry for himself and then decided to convert to radical Islam. The man is an utter, utter c*nt and should not be allowed to return to professional football.

Also, has he actually completed his sentence? He was initially jailed for 18 months. That time isn't up so I imagine he's been released on some form of conditional licence ie. he's still serving his sentence, just not inside.

Because there are time limits in which any appeal can be launched which will have well passed by now. They can only be over reached if there is additional evidence that was not available at the original trial. If you didn't like the verdict at the time that is when you need to appeal - if he had been serious about that he would have doen it then - in fact all the evidence points to the right verdict having been reached - Finnigan is just trying to muddy the waters with a spurious claim that he knows will not be followed up on but which looks good at the time.

Edit - I have just watched the video and Finnigin is claiming there is an ongoing appeal although strangely he has no details about it at all (rather odd as he knew he was going to be interviewed) - I particularly liked the bit in the interview where he said that King made one mistake and then quickly remembered that he is supposed to be innocent and changed it - I assume the 'it was one mistake' was the rejected story that they were going to run and he slipped up and forgot that they had decided to go for 'he was innocent all along and has been appealing it from day one' line instead.

Of course he claimed back at the time of the sentence that King was going to appeal the day after and that he would be out on bail and able to play while the apeal went ahead - so he really does make it up as he goes along.

the kooch
31-07-2010, 11:34 AM
Some of the comments here are really over the top. People have said they would rather be in League 1 or not support Palace at all if King were to sign. Well, King is not going to sign for Palace on his own without anyone knowing, if he signs it will be a decision made by Burley and the coaching staff and it would have to be approved by the owners as well. Apparently Burley has said no so he won't be signing for Palace after all.

I don't want to see King at Palace as well, but it's more due to his affect in the dressing room and possible negative influence on our club's reputation. I don't think a decision should be made solely based on his criminal convictions. He has acted wrongly but he has also paid the price by going to jail and his name being associated with his acts on a nationwide basis. His case is different in that his profession dictates that he is known much more than someone in a regular job. As for the talk about footballers being examples to kids and to the public, King doesn't have that obligation. His employment shouldn't be based on that because after all he's just doing a job and earning money. Him being in front of the public eye is the reason we're talking about him at the moment, we wouldn't have even heard if a builder did the same things, so to say he's a famous footballer thus he shouldn't be allowed to play for me is wrong.

He has every right to play again but football is a popular game and he will have a torrid time in stadiums and in public, and any team that will sign him will have to deal with problems with fans and also the teams dressing room.

Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock is considering offering a deal to striker Marlon King.

The 30-year-old finished a nine month prison sentence for assault last week, and is looking for a way back into football.

In forensic psychology there is a risk assessment designed to identify psychopathic traits. It includes things like

shows no remorse, has a history of violence and aggression, repeatedly breaks the law, is sexually promiscuous, is superficially charming and glib, cannot help but tell lies (ie is a pathological liar), is unable to learn from corrective experience...

....now of course I'm not saying MK has these traits or is a psychopath, but if you look at his record and watch the video as he casually defends the indefensible...well you can decide for yourself

the point about the risk assessment is that research says that psychopaths can't be reformed and are more likely to reoffend

Good Luck QPR...

There are some players out there who, if any Palace management team invested in them, would test my loyalty to the club to the limit an dprobably break it. I am not talking about archetypal "bad boys" like Savage but serious and real offenders. King, along with Lee Hughes, come into that category. Lee Bowyer would be another as would Joey Barton.

It is one thing to kick a few lumps out of fellow pros on the pitch but it is another thing to kill or assault people in their daily lives.

I heard King on R5L with his seemingly doting wife both defending his history and claiming that many things he had done hadn't resulted in prosecutions (while not denying he did them) while also claiming to be the result of a huge miscarriage of justice in the case that saw him put away. Even if the last conviction *is* wrong - his past record is bad enough for me to not want him at Palace.

I don't believe King does deserve another chance in Football. Footballers in the top 2 tiers of English football are highly privileged & I believe that by his own actions King should rightfully have excluded himself from that.

It throws up a lot of conflicting issues.

If you believe that prison is about rehabilitating people they should be allowed to try and carry on with their life without having doors shut in their face and people saying they would be "disgusted" (as someone did on the last page) with anyone that would employ him. If he were in a normal trade people would quite rightly say that his past should not affect his employment opportunities.

On the other hand, there is something inherantly wrong with someone rolling out of prison for hitting women to start picking up X grand a week and being in a position where people look up to him.

I certainly wouldnt want him at Palace, but I dont think he should be denied the opportunity to earn a living because of what he did.

His record is pretty average (when you consider some of these goals came in the lower two levels):

345 games: 108 goals (a goal every 3.2 games)

It's even worse when you takeout his "golden spell" at Watford of 24 goals in 60 games:

285 games: 84 goals (a goal every 3.4 games)

Every man deserves a second chance.

Marlon King has now had over 10 chances. I heard Tony Finnegan, who I used to be a big fan of when he played at Palace, but is now an agent, ask what is Marlon King supposed to do? (presumably meaning what does he do for a living).

King was stupid enough to boast he was a Millionaire footballer, shortly before punching the young woman's face who refused to let him grope her.

He doesn't need a job if he has the money he says he has. Most clubs have a code of conduct that stipulates that when a player is in a public place, such a restaurant, bar, club etc - they are still representing their football club and misbehaviour can be dealt with loss of wages or even termination of their contract if the problem is serious as in King's case. Other players, especially younger ones have lost their contracts at clubs for far less than what King has done.

He has shown no remorse - even having the brass balls to say it was a case of mistaken identity - presumably just like the other crimes he has been convicted of, which involve robbery and assault, sometimes on women that are obviously unable to defend themselves.

What a disgusting human being King is. He has served only half of the time he was sentenced to do in jail - he should spend at least the remaining months he should have been in prison doing good deeds to show that he really is rehabiliated - helping old ladies across the road, painting railings, cleaning toilets, helping the homeless etc etc etc - then he can get back to playing for
a pub team on a sunday with the people who's footballing talents are equal to his skills in humanity - i.e. **** all.

Unfortunately the difference between Marlon King and alot of arrogant overpaid Premiership footballers is that he was unlucky to pick on someone who had the guts to stand up to him whereas plenty of other players abuse their fame and get away with it because the 'victim' is too scared to report it or it gets brushed under the carpet never to reach the public domain.
Dont get me wrong I am not condoning his actions but on ability alone I would have him at Palace in a shot. However the club would be sending out the wrong signal employing his services and that is a decision I wholeheartedly agree with, some may say he has paid for his crime and deserves another chance and I can accept this as long as it is not playing for the team I support.

I don't doubt that many footballers are just as arrogant and bad behaved as him but much luckier, however he has got a long list of misdemeanours. I am mixed on this one because as a person I don't like him at all and I wouldn't want his signing having that initial media circus and general bad effect on player morale, I also wouldn't want him influencing the younger players in any bad way whether that just be the message it sends out about our club. On a footballing point of view, if he were able to regain the fitness and form he had at Watford then what a great and experienced striker we would have on our hands for a free transfer. Overall I don't think we should look at him especially as it is far from guaranteed that he would regain his Watford form.

A friend of mine said that Talksport were really having a go at how he shouldn't be given another chance in the game when 1 caller asked how they could have such a hard stance considering their radio station employs Stan Collymore! Apparently the caller was cut off for merely stating this. Shocking that a debate won't engage in a legitimate debate or react to a very fair point - if true.
