    Nope. I could care less if he wakes up with cold sweats every night. It's no less than he deserves. He de facto murdered a girl then paid off her family to make it go away. There will never be any excuse for that kind of behavior. There is no way to spin that into a positive. It's absolutely disgusting.

    I also read that due do his uncle being a Real Madrid legend and all the political shit that goes with that helped him in his case of being able to just pay them off and hear nothing more of him being a murderer.

    "Couldn't"

    Could make zero sense in the context you are trying to use it.

    Except he didn't murder anyone. You're just choosing to use that word for sensationalism. Be pissed as much as you like but your outrage should be directed at the Spanish courts/justice system. I can't help thinking certain people wouldn't care as much if it wasn't a Chelsea player.

    I find the article more offensive than the banner. Dude was responsible for killing a girl, nobody should let something like that go. Why does he deserve for it to be brushed under the rug?

    I did not try to spin the situation into a positive in any way. In fact the reverse - the situation is negative and can only be made more so by stupid banners from opposition fans. It only makes the fans look stupid and insensitive.

    What good can come of a banner like this?

    I didn't realise so many people were involved in the case and have such in-depth knowledge to cast their views upon it.

    More high-horses than the grand national :woot:

    I agree with you about the banner. It’s cringeworthy. I posted the same thing earlier this thread. I could care less about his feelings though. I think what he did in this situation and especially his actions after afterwards are despicable.

    He paid off the family of the victim. The charge was then brushed aside in court with a whiff of corruption surrounding it. He never showed any remorse that I know of. At least publicly. He pretty clearly was able to do these things just because he’s a famous athlete. You’d honestly be ok with this if it was your own daughter? Do you honestly believe you would receive the same treatment Alonso did had you been caught in the exact same situation he did? If he served some jail time, got out and showed some remorse, I’d probably be willing to set it aside and give him a second chance. But he did none of those things.

    I meant a link about him "paying off the family of the victim. The charge was then brushed aside in court with a whiff of corruption".

    The most worrying thing about this whole argument is if Alonso hadn't of scored 2 goals and won the game against us I doubt the banner never mind this whole thread would exist. Depressing times TBH.

    It's not even an Americanism. Seems to be a regional thing in the US. A weird, nonsensical regional thing.
