NEWS: Dundee manager James McPake appears in court after disturbance at city pub

Recommended Posts

Without knowing any of the facts,it looks like some drunk arabs,bit off more than they could chew,and are trying to cover their a**.

Or did JM walk into a Dundee pub,started abusing some strangers,who might be gay,whilst GI headered them?

Make your own mind up on the most likely scenario.

As they should, if guilty.

Why ?, We don’t know the circumstances involved, sadly society today,  allows people to berate and abuse yet for some unknown reason we expect those on the receiving end to be upstanding members of the community, everyone has a point of no return if there are guilty they will suffer the consequence and the club may then invoke disciplinary measures for bringing the club into disrepute. If I remember right Gowser was curfewed and given a bracelet for assault.

Sounds like the dab arseholes who started taunting McPake are trying to take him down because he responded with a bit of name-calling.

Using gay slurs is not good behaviour but I think the term "homophobic abuse" should be reserved for actual gay people being targeted for being gay rather than a guy defending himself against arseholes.

I've racially abused a guy who pulled a knife on me. Not because I'm particularly racist but because I was trying to bait the guy... who happened to be black. 

If you're in a shitty spiteful situation (which it sounds like this was) then you're going to say hurtful things and calling someone a poof/jessie or whatever is part of that. At the moment some people would choose be be offended by being called the wrong gender/any gender. Its pretty fecked up.

I'll be furious if McPake loses his job because he's been baited into using foul and abusive language. That would just encourage idiots to harass football managers and players in the street in the hope they might get an inappropriate word thrown at them so they can run to the police and get the guy sacked.

However it panned out, I'd guess the couple of guys in their 30's in high profile positions didn't go looking for trouble. I'd be gutted if this stuff was a sacking offence too, from the way FPS have been with McGowan and the way they have looked after JMcP I'd guess they would be understanding. Its just a pity that its come to this, if they were making a habit of trawling round pubs looking for fights then aye, I could understand why some would want rid but its a bar scuffle that seems to only have any kind of traction because of the profile of a couple of the participants.

I'm disappointed that the charge has stood against McPake. If my gay pal gets called a poofter in the street by some random that's a criminal offence. If I get called a poofter by Robbie Neilson because I've taunted him in a pub that's just an irritated football manager losing his cool with a tw*t.

😂 While I wouldn't say I yearn for the good old bad old days, I can't recall the last time I heard it given its 'full title'. I blame texting.... and Instagram.... values are slipping. 🤣

From what I've heard the Security Video footage shows a number of DABs making an a**e of themselves which escalated into the incidents that have brought the charges. Doesn't look good for GI but JMcPs charge is at the lower end of the scale (whatever that means). Maybe the polis should have lifted the arab twats as well and then all the charges could have cancelled themselves out but then that would not have been PC enough. Just have a feeling that they will throw the book at JI but McP will be given a caution at worst!
