Yesterday Nile Ranger was charged with drunk and disorderly behaviour after a night out in the City with his friends.
I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that Nile Ranger has been once again in trouble with the law. This isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last time, either.
The spokesman said: “At 1.40am on Sunday, October 30, police arrested a 20-year-old man for being drunk and disorderly in the Cathedral Square area of Newcastle city centre.
“Nile Ranger, 20, has been charged and will appear at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court on 17 November.”
This happened just at the time when I thought Nile Ranger was turning his career for Newcastle. He’d just been allowed to start training with the first team again and he got on the bench for the first time this season against Blackburn, but now it seems he’s just blown it all, again.
I’ve lost count of all the things that Nile Ranger has done to be honest, he’s constantly getting bad press and he’s in the news for either, drink driving, assaulting people or acting like an idiot in town.
Pardew’s already voiced his concern for his off the field actions and at that time he said he was his 6th choice striker, behind Best, Ba, Ameobi, Lovenkrands and Ben Arfa. I’d also argue that the likes of Sammy Ameobi and Phil Airey.
I really don’t know what we can do with Ranger at this current time; he obviously doesn’t care about football and his career at NUFC. Otherwise he’d make sure he was on time and he’d keep his nose clean and fight to get in the first team.
I know this one hasn’t been proven, but the fact he’s always getting into bother says to me that he’ll probably get charged and then what does he do?
We’ve tried to offload him, we accepted a bid from Blackpool in the summer and tried to ship him out, if it wasn’t for the fact that Nile didn’t want to drop his wages and go play a league lower we’d have gotten rid and he might have been actually able to make something out of his career.
We could send him out on loan, but would anybody want him now? He cannot keep himself out of trouble for much more than a week and he’s not that great of a player, would he be worth the risk for any club? I don’t think so.
I personally think we should just get rid of him and terminate his contract. Thanks to Chris Hughton we’ve got him stuck here on a 5 year deal, but I don’t think he’ll last half of that time. Of course we won’t want to spend a huge amount of money to release him from his deal, but if we can manage to get rid of him because of his off field behaviour I reckon he’ll be out the door in the shot.
I hope he gets no more chances, does he deserve another one?
