I've had a drink in their club loads of times and played a few games there years ago as it was used as a venue for finals from the Sunday leagues. It's slap bang in a large working class estate and the team has been going for years and is well respected. Fair play to the manager , shame on the league .We can see how seriously the issue is being taken here:
Football team walk off the pitch after linesman made alleged racist comments to player - but he's still allowed to officiate

Don't think we need The Sun to start lecturing on racism tbh . They didn't have anything to say when Chelsea Independents who had an advert for AFA were attacked and stabbed .... and it looks as though other people are beginning to smell it ...

No problem - let's listen to Chelsea fan Jay Bailey instead:"Don't think we need The Sun to start lecturing on racism tbh .
No mention either that 3 of the Salah lot were dealt with before they entered the stadium. No balance of problems at other clubs and no viewpoints from the vast majority of Chelsea supporters.Don't think we need The Sun to start lecturing on racism tbh . They didn't have anything to say when Chelsea Independents who had an advert for AFA were attacked and stabbed .
Considering the number of tweets I read from peoewho had no idea the Titanic sank until they saw the film it's not totally unbelievable."Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey did not know what a Nazi salute was when he was charged with making the offensive gesture, says a Football Association panel.
The charge was found not proven this month and Wales international Hennessey, 32, will face no punishment ..."
Wayne Hennessey did not know what Nazi salute was - FA panel
Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was cleared of the accusation of performing an offensive Nazi salute - because he did not know what a Nazi was.
No problem - feel free to try and swallow this instead:Hmm that the Sun getting all righteous on the topic is a bit hard to swallow...
From parks to Premier League: the shocking scale of racism in English football"A special investigation into the racism crisis uncovers anger, despair and a warning that there will be ‘an explosion’ unless the problem is tackled"
Presumably Hennessey's German teammate who published the photograph showing him giving a Nazi salute, complete 'Hitler toothbruch moustache' sign, is able to point him in the direction of educational materials that will assist him in his quest?Wayne Hennessey is ‘desperate’ to learn about the Nazis, says Roy Hodgson
He's "innocent" !!!... I think I can see why people don't want some of the individuals involved in this sort of behaviour to have to their details identified ...

Italy is a mess on that front, numerous high profile cases of players getting abuse and walking off, only to be criticised and in some cases sanctioned by the FIGC (Italian FA). A few years ago at a game, some fans who were monkey chanting at a black player were shouted at and abused at by groups who only minutes before had been making fascist chants and doing the 'roman salute'..... Fucked up place......My step grandson (dual heritage) was recently on a U16s football tour in Italy. One game was abandoned... remember these are U16s... due to racist chanting.
SGS's team fielded 3 black players as well as himself and the team walked off as one when the chanting began. Horrible, totally unacceptable behaviour at any age but at that age group?
