Peter Beardsley investigation takes a turn for the worse – This really is getting silly now

As reported by The Mail’s Craig Hope, it’s said that Peter Beardsley’s return to NUFC is now ‘unlikely’, with U-23 players making it clear that they do not want to see the 57-year-old back after allegations of racism and bullying.

The story states that the players have now been mocking Beardsley, with a ‘training ground sing-along’ turning into a joke at the coaches expense recently.

Craig Hope’s piece insists that no final decision has been made on his future, despite us now being NINE months into his suspension and investigation.

What’s worse is the piece also explains the baffling reasons why Lee Charnley (who is heading the investigation) has been ‘unable’ to resolve the matter as of yet, claiming the Managing director has  been “preoccupied with first-team matters”.

It’s stated that this ‘slow progress’ has ‘infuriated many connected to the academy’ – so it seems like Rafa Benitez and us NUFC fans aren’t the only ones who get fed up of Charnley’s inability to do anything quickly.



Let’s hope this gets sorted out once and for all ASAP – but for now, it would be nice if the youngsters didn’t mock Beardsley while the case is still being investigated.

  1. Charnley is as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike, don’t know how he has made a living, takes an eternity to do anything

  4. I’ve been fortunate to meet Pedro numerous times. I took my son and his friend to Gateshead Stadium last summer for a U23s friendly with Gateshead. He spent loads of time with the fans, made a great effort to speak with everyone and has always been a friendly guy every time I’ve met him. The bloke does not suffer fools lightly and demands 100% and those who don’t give it – he tells them and gets called a bully – *******!!.
    Is he a racist, I don’t know. The black players he’s played with in the past certainly have never claimed so. My thoughts are that he may well have made some inappropriate comments – and in the role he’s in, you can’t do that. But there is a big difference between being inappropriate and racist.

    I think the way the club has handled it is disgraceful though. You either back him or sack him, but to have just left it is dead wrong. I think they’ve hoped he’d just walk.

    Once a Bully all ways a Bully no simpathy for him a legend but time for him to leave coaching

    Chris – you got proof of that like?. What I see is him not letting over paid, over privileged, egomaniac teenagers who think they’ve made it to the big time off the hook.
    Being strict on things like diet and fitness isn’t being a bully. Punishing someone for ill discipline isn’t being a bully.

  7. The problem for Penfold is Fatman has told him to keep PB on the payroll. Why ? Because Pedro is Fatman’s favourite hoop admirer
