Beardsley-Gate Is Cause For Concern
Today saw club legend Peter Beardsley allegedly give internal evidence at St James' Park as television pictures seemed to back up the stories that were all over the media yesterday.
The Mail and other papers that followed, reported that Beardsley was facing a grilling over alleged bullying claims and talk of racism reared it's head late last night.
Tonight, the likes of The Mail and Daily Mirror have exclusives where they are going into detail of what they allege has been said and done although the use of the word 'allegedly' seems to cover all their bases in their articles.
It is also reported that nothing has been settled yet and the FA are taking a back seat for now whilst this is being dealt with internally but with confusion over supposed takeovers and the HMRC thing hanging over the club, it is another concern that can be done without.
Beardsley is supposedly taking training tomorrow after tonight's youth game was called off due to a frosty pitch but personally I still see a massive issue with what looks like a split in the youth camp with accusers surely not able to give their all with the accused.
This is also not taking into account the fact that people will believe whatever they want to believe until any side is proven and parents or guardians may steer their kids away from the club on the back of this.
As ever, we should find out soon enough.
