David Healy: Accused of assault

The 33-year-old striker, who scored 34 international goals, did attend Laganside Magistrates' Court for his first appearance on Wednesday morning.

He is accused of assaulting James Geroid Crossan on May 26 last year.

Healy's defence solicitor Richard McConkey requested a two-week adjournment for the case.

Healy, from Castleview Terrace, Killyleagh in Co Down, currently plays for League One side Bury.

In 2008, he was awarded an MBE for services to football and the community - the same year he scored 13 goals in the qualifying competition for the 2008 European Championship - the highest total in the competition's history.

Healy, who came through Manchester United's youth system, has also played for Leeds United, Fulham, Sunderland and Rangers.

District Judge Ken Nixon said the case would be listed again in two weeks' time.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
