Newcastle Player In Court On Assault Charge

Newcastle United defender 21 year-old Jamaal Lascelles, who is on a season long loan to Nottingham Forest, has appeared in court over an alleged assault.

Jamaal Lascelles – appeared in court

Lascelles appeared at Derby Crown Court this morning,  and is accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm at a Derby night club on April 23rd.

Lascelles lives in Oakwood, Derby, and he was released on bail to appear back at court on March 11th, at which time he will enter a formal plea, and a preliminary trial date set for the week of Monday April 27th.

Newcastle signed both Lascelles and 24 year-old goalkeeper Karl Darlow in the summer for an estimated £7M, and loaned them immediately back to Nottingham Forest.

Jamaal has played 49 times for Forest with 3 goals, and he has been capped at England U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels.

We hope this is just an isolated event, for the youngster’s own good.

    Ah. Caught out by Ed.

    Further to Lgfuad ‘s point previous thread about the English FA endorsement of long ball. –

    The long ball game is actually a throwback to when the game first started and it was the object to batter (including physically) the ball into the opposition goal by attrition. The game naturally progressed, tactics came into play, rules compensated for unfair advantage. Advocating long ball totally ignores the craft of skill and tactics , and yes, entertainment, that took 100 years to forge. it’s statisticians and mathematicians who think numbers trump everything. They don’t account for the effect on morale of a side bring outplayed and out passed, the disorientation caused by a surprise break forward, the turning of a game on it’s head by an individual piece of brilliance. If statisticians had their way on the game nobody would ever score.

    He hasn’t played for us yet and already he’s Nile Rangers’ replacement.

    Tsunki – thats a bit unfair mate – Nile Ranger is head and shoulders above Lascelles when it comes being an absolute moron. Hopefully, Lascelles will respond in a positive manner where Ranger simply got worse. Only time will tell though.

    @Graeme: Very true. A man who needs his name tattooed on his face, is a very special breed of idiot. Having said that, it’s interesting watching him systematically ruin his life.

    Graeme ok ‘ possible replacement’ then 🙂

    Maybe when and if he gets up here he might adjust well to a professional attitude.

    I think with ranger it’s simply a case of him bring irreparably thick. With Lascelles it’s more likely a one off bit of exuberance.

    If Jamaal’s a bit of a hard case then he’ll fit in nicely with our training regime!

    What the hell’s Carver and his oppos up to during training? Is he staging all-in no holds barred wrestling matches up there at Benton? Talk about gladiators and lions? The number of training-related injuries we’re picking up really does merit serious attention.

    Our training programmes must be reviewed and include medically supervised post-injury recuperative sessions to overcome the risk of breakdown after injury.

    Back to Jamaal though, let’s just hope this is a one-off.
