I do hope that C-word a typo. 

Unfortunately, the habits of an older generation.

I remember well how, when discussing what to eat, almost as a last resort, somebody would sometimes suggest ‘What about a takeaway ‘Chinky’ - with apologies for repeating it.

On a similar, currently topical note, when in urgent need of a small household item out of normal shopping hours, it would not be uncommon for somebody to suggest trying the P shop on the corner.

Hopefully, most of us have progressed.

Too many people being offensive and too many people being over-sensitive to offence. The stupidity of modern times can be measured by the number of apologies being issued.

Anyway, come on you Reds! (apologies to any reactionaries who may be offended by my apparent call to Communism)

Get well soon Nige. We’re rooting for you.

To comment on the ‘ he will walk away’ posters , how Bristol City would it be to then unveil Fleming as the new manager with Ball as his number two?

:shocking:

 

As long as it's not Ball and Boe, I don't mind

I grew up with that term being used as a reference for a Chinese takeaway. However wrong it is now with the benefit of much greater racial awareness- I dont think any of us used the term knowing ( or wanting) it to be offensive. Well done for being honest enough to admit to being out of step and apologising....... back to the footie now. 3 points guaranteed. Massengo hat trick...... possibly......

Not sure that disgusted from Tunbridge Wells would get it (i go there quite a lot). 
Pleased to say that Bristol in 2021 is the sort of place where most people would instinctively. Times change- sometimes v quickly- and my view is that it’s always worth distinguishing between those who use derogatory terms deliberately and with the aim to hurt, and those who do so clumsily or because they haven’t had a chance to catch up (this seems to be easier to acknowledge when, like me, your 56). As to the P word, I spent time in Australia in 1991 and the tv commentators used it routinely to describe players from Pakistan or the team as a whole. 
Meanwhile get well soon big Nige- Covid badly, twice- football, bloody hell.

Your a mere youngster, it's very difficult for me as I grew up in the 60s and 70s the world was very different then, even though I try my hardest to keep up with modern terminology occasionally I have slipped up and have quickly been told on here in no uncertain terms, my common mistake is coloured or black and your right sometimes ignorance is a legitimate excuse as people even as young as you will have grown up using certain words and phrases and use them in all innocence, and yes if anyone was in any doubt about the dangers of covid our poor manager should be a lesson to us all, some people almost get away scot free others it hits like a sledgehammer the problem is nobody knows for certain which category they will fall into hence the importance of at least doing all you can and getting vaccinated to at least improve your chances of a good outcome.
