  1. We went 10 unbeaten so yes it was the right thing to do. Nagy getting injured was just so unfortunate.
  2. Do you know how much Leeds pay their manager a season? And on top of that his staff too?
  3. I totally agree with you. Apologies I'm not sure if I said that if it is found to be racist. In my life I've had it where I've called people an insult, something like a knob or whatever yet when it comes to someone from a different ethnic background to myself I will not insult them incase I am accused of being a racist for calling them a knob etc when the reality is I'm calling them a knob simply because I think they are a knob, skin colour or religion has nothing to do with it. It seems that any act towards a person of a different ethnic background is immediately considered racist, even tho there is no evidence of it being racially motivated. Sorry for going around the bushes with this but yes I agree, we shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions that it was racially motivated unless there is evidence. The sad reality is if there was in actual fact no Racism used by Yeovil fans, and this was a white GK, we wouldn't even be talking about a GK being abused as abusing the GK is part and parcel of attending games, no matter their ethnicity.
  4. Maybe they didn't use that term, but their sentiments were similar. They bottled it too but I think it is important to understand that we live in different times. If just one England player had walked off the rest would have followed and the whole country and footballing world would have supported them. 30 or so years ago I don't think the same would have happened. If a black plsyer walked off he would have been walking off by himself and received criticism from fans as racism was very widespread back then in this country and that's very sad that black players back then didn't receive the support that players of today do, even tho there is still more that can be done.
  5. Another interesting conversation to be had there. Let me start by saying this, any act that is carried out because of someone's skin colour, or culture or religion etc I totally deplore in the strongest possible way. Obviously I wasn't at the Yeovil game, so can't really comment if racial slurs were made or not. But is the act of calling a black goalkeeper not very good racist? Is throwing a bottle at a black goalkeeper racist? Is booing a black goalkeeper racist? White players get that same treatment in every game from fans so it's very hard to distinguish if someone is actually being racist or not if there is no vocal or visual signs to it.
  6. That's my opinion, I'm not the only way to hold that opinion. Many former black players also said England should have walked off, many also said playing on was right. For some staying on and playing was the correct thing to do, for others walking off was the correct thing to do.
  7. I agree, Yeovil should be kicked out of the competition and Haringey receive a bye into the 1st round , and those identified as responsible should face life time bans and the force of the law.
  8. I do agree with you to a certain extent. No doubt for some their singing of the song is absolutely racist. My understanding is people sing the song as a way to voice their displeasure that some communities have a large variation of differing cultures in this country. The UK is very welcoming to different nationalities and their cultures and that's a good thing. but is it necessarily racist if communities don't want to see their local Identity drastically changed? I personally don't think it has anything to do with skin colour or religion, although racism isn't just limited to them two things.
  9. If someone is racist at a football game, not only should they receive lifetime bans, they should also receive considerable punishment by the courts. Maybe then when they see people being jailed, their lives ruined, their names all over the media for being racist will people then think twice about being racist. It would be ironic if they were then to share a cell with someone from a different ethnic background to themselves m
  10. Fair play to the Haringey players tho. If they were to get to the 1st round proper and pull a big league one club then that would be great for them financially. So for them to give that up to make a stand against racism is applaudable, they had they showed bravery whilst the England players bottled it.
  11. I'm on the fence. I don't necessarily think it is a racist chant and would like a conversation to establish if it is of not. I wasn't there today, so I don't know in what context these chants were sung so I'm going to just concentrate on the chant rather than it being chanted today. The question is, is singing a chant that a town is full of Asians racist or not? Or is it something else like Xenophobic etc?
  12. Is that a racist chant tho?
  13. The international break curse strikes once again. I didn't expect us to win today, Luton away has always seemed a bogey ground for us but to lose in that manner is absolutely pathetic.
  14. VAR have been busy today. Huge controversy at the Spurs V Watford game where the big screen displayed No goal when VAR awarded the goal.
  15. I briefly saw a Halloween advert. I'm delighted I spent a fiver on a black screen, a microphone and a Halloween advert.
