Nile Ranger In Court Today – No Future At Newcastle


Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has today talked about his young striker, Nile Ranger, after the player appeared in court to deny charges of assault and being drunk and disorderly.

A smart Nile Ranger in court yesterday

It brings back memories of when another young Newcastle striker, Andy Carroll,  kept appearing in the courts, but Andy has now left Newcastle of course for Liverpool.

The London-born striker’s address was given as Edwins Avenue South, Forest Hall, North Tyneside, and the 20 year-old pleaded not guilty to two counts of common assault.

He also pleaded not guilty to  two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and to a separate count of being drunk and disorderly, when he appeared before Newcastle Magistrates earlier today.

Ranger is accused of assaulting two people in addition to two police officers outside a bar in the Newcastle city center on Saturday, August 27th, and in addition to that, of being of being drunk and disorderly in Newcastle on an early Sunday morning, October 30th.

That doesn’t sound too good does it?

Alan Pardew had this to say today:

‘This is a guy who has got real talent and he needs to understand that there is a professionalism that comes with his football.”  “I think he does understand that now.’

It’s hard to believe that with these charges, (and yes he’s innocent until proven guilty), and with his general lack of enthusiasm or dedication in training, and his  lack of professionalism, that he can have any future at Newcastle United.

But Alan Pardew is trying to get him out on loan before the loan deadline of next week, but we understand that is meant to be only a short term loan deal, so he can get more involved with playing first team football.

As we reported this morning there are at least three Championship clubs interested in taking the player on loan.

Ranger’s next court appearance before Newcastle Magistrates will be on January 12th, when he will be committed to the Crown Court for the alleged assaults,  and then face trial for being drunk and disorderly.

It’s a sad affair, that’s for sure, and it’s not great advertising for the Newcastle United club either.

    I’ve got a feeling he’ll be loaned out till the end of the season then come back to us for next season
    Don’t necessarily think it’ll do any good but we can only hope I guess!

    Hope he can get it together, because there is real talent there. Maybe a loan move is the best idea.

    Ed, is Tony (header designer) a mate of yours, I assume? Just thinking, 2 first team players are not included there… if they read/see this blog (I suspect some players do), they’ll be disappointed. I know he added Jonas for you, maybe he can do this too if it’s not too hard?

    Dono bout Ranger,huge talent but he’s an ass.
    Many would give their right arm for the chance to play at that level and he just pees it away.
    Would be sad to see him go n get himself straightened out and bangin goals for someone else.
    Wouldn’t be the first time for the toon army

    GT see 2d post, more or less tells you…But feel free to congratulate on the takeover of Northern Rock ..Get the Ball rolling mate !. Sir Richard has a massive personal fortune but the company is just behind Microsoft with 40 odd billions ! the association has started with Virgin via Northern Rock .

    Shirts and stadium naming rights on the agenda.

    joppadoni, Nile Ranger. “He was with the Protec Football Development School for a few weeks before being scouted by Southampton. His career was almost over before it began, whilst playing for the club he was sentenced to 11 weeks in a Young Offender’s Institute for his part in an armed street robbery in Muswell Hill committed before signing for the club.

    Don’t know there names. But Probably the same twats.

    wwjbd – actually we did northern rock a huge favour by supporting them when the nearly went out of business, could ditched them as sponsors but we stuck by them remeber all the steady as a rock advertising round the ground when they went tits up
    its now clear that this why the shirt sponsorship deal ended bcoz virgin hav bought them
    also northern rock although it has branches round the country it very much a north east thing virgin will b looking to compete as the no1 uk bank within 5year i bet and then start branching out to other countrys

    @GG i wasnt there. but i know a little about his heritage. thats got nowt to do with his current position. i went to a party over 10 yrs ago where shola was sat with his mate who looked like a bloody gansta… but thats just a way of dress rather than a personal way forward… or an attitude. its not your friends that make you when ya hit his age, its when ya around 10.. 😛

    How did we support NR? How could we ditch them as sponsors? (and why would we?)

    Also your insight into NUFC is only matched by ur insight into the top businesses across the world lad u seem to know the inner strategies of Nike, Sony and Virgin

    these company spend 100millions a year on advertising n sponsorships so 10mill for a stadium n shirt sponsor is very little money to huge companys like these, n u think whatever company small or big sponsors us arnt doing it bcause they may be able to drum up some customers from newcastle its because of the world wide exposure they would get from being shown in every country on the planet through the premier league on our shirts

    They get shown in every country n all that anyways theyve got they own Airline, Media broadcasting and Travel Insurance plus many more they ready a global company but they would also be a good sponsorship and Sir Richard Branson doesnt do things by halves a think if he wer interested then it would be a full deal so he owns newcastle united 🙂 he’d supply us with a virgin super jet team plane and runour has it all season ticket holders get free xl tv internet and phone packages for the time they own a season ticket 🙂
