Con Marlon in Coke Bust

If former Hornet's striker Marlon King had a hope getting a deal with another club once his jail term ends then he's probably just seen that slim chance ended after it was revealed he was found to have cocaine in his cell.

The 29 year-old striker who spent three years as Hornet between 2005 and 2008 was found with a wrap of cocaine in a cabinet next to his bed in his cell at Wayland Prison in Norfolk.

King is currently serving an 18 month sentence for molesting and subsequently breaking the nose of 20 year old Emily Carr in a Soho club whilst on loan at Hull City from Wigan.

This is of course the same Marlon King who has been inside once before for his part in the sale of a stolen vehicle!

The Sun also reported two weeks ago that King was battered with a plate and left with a black eye whilst following a row in the queue for dinner.

Does he ever learn?

Keep him in there....throw the book at him....he was in a privileged position as footballer, he has abused the position and clearly not the role model that I want for my kids!

This guy has to be the thickest bloke on the planet, thousamds of youngster every year dream of being a pro footballer and work their nuts off to get there. most fail & are shown the door. tis tonk goes all the way and can't handle it. like a goldfish, he hasn't the ability to think beyond the next moment. Throw away the key!

Hmmm results of our recent VitalWatford poll are strange... A good healthy chunk of Watford fans want Marlon to re-sign on release from prison... Well it worked like a treat for Lee Hughes @ Oldham and Notts County!

I wouldn`t want him @ WFC but OURKIDS DAD needs to have a re-think. Footballer-cons should not be vilified or punished more than any other criminal from any other walk of life. If you think that Players should be role models for your children anyway then I see that as misguided. Over-paid,young men, are less likely to be consistent role models than most.
