Marlon King anyone?

Marlon King anyone?
It would possibly be controversial but what's the feeling on Marlon King being taken on?

This hasn't been mentioned by anybody as far as I know yet but it would appear that there are few other clubs that are interested in taking King on following his recent misdemeanour and prison sentence.

Despite our precarious position is this something that we should, like others, take the morale high ground on or is it a situation where the club can take advantage?

Is this the player who raped someone and then did a prison sentence or it? If so, then I heard the other day, the view that he has done his time and like everyone else who comes out of prison, should have the chance to return to work. Not sure myself.

In the eyes of the law he has served his sentence and is a free man - Whatever his crime, he has paid for it. Pompey need players, he needs a break - sign him up!.... And let he who is without sin ...

More of a grope and a punch than rape Gandor .. Sexual Assault and ABH I think - Not saying it makes it any better mind.. but my point still stands.. with Frattonbex's proviso of course .. I make the assumption that he is fit and good enough..

Easily good enough for the Championship, only problem is he'll be no where near match fit or has had any match practice. Also it's not as if we can put him in the reserves to do these things as we have no reserve team.

If it wasn't rape, then I have no problem with signing him up, if he is good enough to play for us. Would it take long to get him fit?

Sorry completely disagree don't want him any where near us, he's got 15! convictions and is on the sex offenders register, he is a low life and will most probably commit another crime at some point in the near future giving us more bad publicity (something we have plenty of)
