I see that there was yet more racist chanting last Friday evening when England played in Bulgaria however I really don’t know what all the fuss is about, the players it is aimed at should just turn a blind eye and get on with the game as was the case in the 1970’s with the likes of Clyde Best and Ade Coker for West Ham and the so called Three Degrees for West Brom, they didn’t bat an eyelid and did their talking on the pitch which annoyed the racists far more than had they reacted.
Racist chanting is abhorrent, and it's only a matter of time before the powers that be start clamping down in other disturbing trends
Is this a record? Reviving an 8 year old thread? Is it really necessary, and what sort of troubled mind is capable of looking up a subject title in this way rather than start a new thread?
And by the way, racism is about how the behaviour feels to the victim, and only he/she knows that, not a tw@t like you! Do you really think that those guys you cite from the really bad old days were not the victims of racism? I was a regular at Football League games in those days, and racist chants were one of the many ways that the typical football hooligan of those days disgraced himself, but it was no more acceptable then than it is today.
Just to lighten things up, and with apologies to anyone of the Jewish faith, or who is ginger, or who is fat reading this, I was at a game a couple of seasons ago where a player ran up to an opponent and kicked him. The ref intervened and asked the offender why he had done it. He called me a "[censored] yid" he explained. Did you? asked the ref. Yes I did, came the reply. If he'd have been ginger I'd have called him an effing ginger, if he'd have been fat, I'd have called him a fat [****!!****]. What's the problem? The ref agreed and let the matter rest!
