Maybe controversial but

Maybe controversial but

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-08-25, 1:03 pm

I am a very big fan of our new leaders, their openness and how they all interact with the fans.

However I have a wee concern over Charlie Methven , a man I like a lot and he above everyone has embraced the club and its fans.


Last game he was next to me in the fans zone and was willing to talk to anyone, have his photo taken with anyone,none of it was a job, a duty, a chore all was done with a beaming smile, fantastic.


But my concern is the growing light hearted posts on social media about his love of a pint, has anyone seen him without a pint, there is Charlie with his pint. I am not a drinker and do become concerned about some drinking habits of friends and acquaintances, I know alcohol can cause problems and can kill but that's just me.


My concern is the image that Charlie may be giving out but maybe I am just being a killjoy, all the same its a genuine concern.


Go on then, tear me apart when you sober up.

Many many worse sins in life than the odd pint or two, i myself get through a massive 6 a week Razz.
If any one makes an issue on that, i feel more sorry for them.

Nothing at all wrong with the odd pint and you seem to be very defencive Vinkle but no need to feel sorry for me at all if you feel I am making an issue out or enjoying a pint, I will be enjoying a few myself next Saturday evening.

I do however get concerned when the enjoyment of a pint becomes a real need for a pint, or two or more, I have seen close up and personal the damage that can be done when a pint becomes an addiction and my sympathy goes to the battered wife and ruined lives that can come through drink, drugs, gambling.

My point was not to come down on the social drinker but to voice a very, very slight concern about the wrong message that just maybe is being given.

Doesn't sound like a problem to me, people with alcohol problems suffer from mood swings which Charlie doesn't appear to have.  like
