Don’t care to elaborate for those of us not on Twitter?

 I’m going to assume it’s something to do with her ‘favourite’ coach?

Holloway is on Twitter? The wonders of autocorrect / spellcheck must enable him to put a sentence together.....

Holloway has been on Twitter a few days, I don’t follow him.

 Eniola Aluko said the following about him “He's had his mad moments, but this is brilliant positive motivational coaching psychology! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Thats why I left her account!

For anyone on twitter I’d recommend a visit to her page. Go into her tweets and replies and enjoy a night of laughing. 

I haven't laughed once, twitter is a cess pit full of the most vile people.

Sounds like she is taking on Millwall.

The best thing she could have done was to shut up instead of getting into a Twitter spat with various people

She didn't have a meltdown at all. A bunch of tragic (and definitely not racist) idiotic Millwall fans decided to spam her book reviews with a bunch of 0/1 star ratings.

Not sure I would agree with that, she got involved in a twitter rows that she didn't need to

She then pulled the racist card (agree I never read anything that was) from then it just got more and more cringey to read

Well it's impossible to say, but I'd argue that a bunch of stupid Millwall fans particularly picking Eni Aluko and nobody else to target with bad reviews almost certainly has a racial element behind it. But who knows.

I think a problem is one of the reviews she highlighted had written purely along the lines of that they didn't enjoy it and had left a 1 star review, however she picked it out as a supposed Millwall fan and threatened legal action, then went on to call Millwall fans scum, as a solicitor perhaps not the wisest move and could open herself up to action, the person who wrote it not being a Millwall fan/objects to being called scum

Or maybe it seeks certain people.... for certain reasons.

You could make the exact same case for Raheem Sterling.

Perhaps it’s me but a sustained media campaign based on ignorance and a few people saying they don’t like a book are not the exact same thing. In my view Sterling has behaved impeccably........

In terms of the previous situation with Sampson it was interesting to see how divided opinion was and that divide was not colour or race based. David James was not a great “fan” if I recall correctly. What “certain reasons” did he have for speaking out?

That's exactly my point! If he's behaved impeccably, then why did controversy always follow him?

He had a reputation based upon ignorance and let’s cut the crap it may have been racially motivated from certain sections of the media but the way he dealt with that and the support he received in the game ensured that this was relatively short lived (any time being too long clearly).

Raheem Sterling, without knowing the guy, comes across as a credit to himself. Other people..............just don’t to be honest.

So by that, you mean Aluko?

Fair enough. As I said above, it's impossible to directly pin it on racism, but a successful female black footballer, over 100 caps for England and legally trained... it's a perfect target for certain sections of the gutter press. As was Sterling.

As it happens I agree with you about Sterling by the way. I used him as an example as to why controversy can seek certain people, rather than follow.

I'm really interested to see what happened on twitter. Shame she has protected her tweets

Started threatening legal action to millwall fans because of a few 1 star reviews on her book. 23 to be exact. Then called all millwall fans scum, said she’d get them banned from the ground and called it a cesspit. 

Also called many fans racist, however I personally saw no racist tweets whatsoever.

there are a few good ones on Amazon as well - racism, maliciousness or just shithousery I can’t decide (although I’ve not seen any I could say were racist)

It shouldn't be funny, but this had me in stitches....

 

“Best book since ‘how to raise children by Joseph Fritzel”

Hardback edition
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
by Eni isn’t ok Isn’t ok
 

Definitely add this to the list of wonders such as: Jimmy Savilles guide to fixing stuff, ‘Raoul moats fishing bible 2014 and Fred and Rose West DIY garden ideas 1978. Well done Eni, you’ve reached the top.

Charging £5,000 a pop for 'speaking engagements' - I foresee a tour, and 3 Guardian columns (with no btl allowed) to confront the 'racist' attacks on her book.....

As someone said above - 'controversy' just follows some people around.

She sure knows which path to take when it comes to paying the bills.

Evil Woman.

So she gets good money to do speaking engagements. Why does that enrage you?

Looks like the Eni Aluko fan club has just logged in

It is really amazing how blindly people follow each other 

 

Not a fan club member and certainly don’t follow blindly (anybody).Just like to understand the viewpoint of other people and stick to the known facts.

Not really very controversial i’d Have thought.

Righto, I just thought you she was a successful and high achieving  role model,  who had experienced quite an unpleasant incident from a previous employer and has somehow become the one at fault and a target for some Neanderthals. None of which makes her perfect (who is) but doesn’t mean she deserves the abuse she gets, IMHO.

Your thoughts are different to my thoughts. Yes, she's a successful and high achieving person, but as for a role model? No thanks.

But not how it played out on Twitter 

Unless I missed it on a quick scan she's conveniently left out that she called people scum, but that doesn't help when presenting her argument..... Her point is an extremely valid one, however her own actions are hardly perfect.

Why don't you think she's a role model, genuinely interested? She's also a qualified lawyer (and lawyer jokes aside), as a city fan with a daughter, she seems an excellent person for her to look up to and try and achieve what she has done?
