    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?
