    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 .

    ... and it looks as though other people are beginning to smell it ...

    Chelsea have a serious deep-rooted generations-old problem with racism – it’s time for them to prove otherwise

    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.

    Apart from being from The Sun for heavens sake the article appears to have been written by a 12 year old and why anyone would quote it to prove a point is beyond me.

    "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.

    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.

    Hmm that the Sun getting all righteous on the topic is a bit hard to swallow...

    What a world we live in. Brexit has stoked up xenophobia and racism in the UK to levels comparable to the 60's.
    Then everyone suddenly acknowledges it's wrong in football and it's about time we tackled it.

    No problem - feel free to try and swallow this instead:

    From parks to Premier League: the shocking scale of racism in English football

    The author of the piece - who appears to have no connection with The Sun - is also referred to here:

    What drives football fans to abuse reporters of racism?

    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?

    Colin Wing, 60, insisted he did not call the Manchester City forward a 'black c**t' instead claiming he had shouted 'manc c**t' at the player as he collected a ball from the side lines.

    Wing said on December 10: 'I'm deeply ashamed by my own behaviour and I feel really bad. But I didn't call him a black ****, I called him a Manc ****.

    'I've been going to Chelsea for 50 years now and, because of where I sit, I'm picked up on the camera most weeks. If I had a history of saying this sort of thing I would've been caught by now.

    One hopes that this will not stop the organisation from continuing to challenge racism in the football industry:

    Meanwhile, this is disturbing:

    felixthecat are we there yet?

    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.

    That's despicable

    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?

    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......
