    He'll just sit on the roadside while the other guys are picking shit up, then refuse to get involved when ordered to by the supervisors.

    See, I'm all for punishment and stuff but why not just give him a proper fine rather than 250 hours of CS.

    I'm sure they could do a lot more with 2 weeks of his wages than they'll get out of his 250 hours.

    Maybe he'll learn something from it? The money means sod all to him.

    What's he going to learn? That you shouldn't drive when you've been banned?

    He knew that before, he just didn't give a shit. Get some cash off him and do some good with it.

    If they feel like they should donate it to a handsome Geordie living in exile down south then so be it.

    Depends what the work is. May be 250 hours will result in him finding sympathy for the cause and he'll donate money to it afterwards anyway. Who knows.

    The cash would eventually end up in local government coffers where it would be used to build more speeding cameras.

    I think community service is a far more meaningful punishment for the likes of Tevez than a financial one. Time is a much more precious commodity than money when you're a millionaire. Not to mention the general humiliation and unpleasantness of it. I think he's much less likely to do it again if this is the consequence.

    They should do the same for Fergie next time he mouths off a ref or whatever.

    Well the punishment should bring him back down to earth and show him that just because he's rich doesn't mean he's above the law. Maybe then he will give a shit next time.

    As kalel says his time is more valuable to him so having a big chunk taken away for a bit to do community work is a harsher punishment than taking money from him which would amount to small change.

    Interesting to see your opinion on this though; usually when celebrities etc. 'get off' with just a fine the legal system is criticised for giving them a punishment which doesn't really punish or teach them anything.

    With regards to Di Canio I don't buy it that he's just thick, he strikes me as intelligent enough to know what's what.

    It all stems from his relationship with the Ultras of Lazio. Really nasty bunch. Far Right wing.

    The amount of money he could be fined would be about half an hours work, community service is much, much more inconvenient and if they have him cleaning toilets is far more likely to be a deterrent.

    Im not a career criminal by any means but if i earned 200 large a week, a five grand fine every time I was caught driving without a license, I would just keep the money in my glovebox and motor around like normal.

    When Cantona got Community Service he had to train local kids in Football.

    He's unlikely to be cleaning bogs or picking up litter at the side of the M6.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I'm all for proportionate fines. When people say the fine means nothing ot them it just means they haven't been fined enough.

    And Tevez isn't going to be sent to an Old Peoples Home either..I doubt his 'punishment' will be too strenuous.

    Either way, not that fussed. How does CS work? Do they have to do it in a defined period or can they do like, 2 hours a week or summat?

    If he does 2 hours a week then he'll be doing it for over two years, which is a punishment in a whole different way.

    However you cut it, it's a good incentive not to do it again.

    I did some voluntary work at the local British Heart Foundation charity shop and there was a couple of guys there doing community service.

    Think there is a number of options tbh.

    If the work is lame then that's another issue. Doesn't have to be.

    59 games since Utd last got a red in the league. Almost two seasons worth of games! Their discipline is excellent.

    Rooney's too fat to lift his leg to kick someone. Nothing to do with discipline.

    I believe it's because the the amount they're legally allowed to fine him for the offence is vanishingly small in comparison to his wages, whereas 250 hours of his time is 250 hours of his time - roughly 6 working weeks' worth.

    He's on what, 100 grand a week? Fine him 20 grand and he won't even notice. Take 6 weeks of work off him, he'll fucking notice.

    Benitez wants to stay in England?

    Just had a horrible, horrible thought. Moyes leaves in the summer, Mourinho goes to Chelsea and Rafa comes to... us. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    He's not that bad at managing. He's just terribly, terribly distrustful of players who are good and have imagination. Also he isn't all that great at buying mid-price players.

    Compared to genuinely terrible managers like Mark Hughes who seem to keep getting a job he's much better.

    Yeah, fair assessment. He's safety first. Like George Graham in many respects. "Just do as you're told, and don't express yourself."
