    £10,000 is ridiculous. Make it a sum that hurts and the club (and other supporters) will stamp it out.

    These racist scumbags probably feel empowered with the rise of UKIP, the Empire-yearning Brexit boneheads, Trump and the far right in the UK and (just about) everywhere else. Let's hope this kind of shit keeps getting reported for the unpalatable moronic behaviour that it is. The fucking twats.

    A senior manager at Lloyds Bank HQ Bristol, TEXT ‘Kompany and Fernandhino are black c*nts’ (adjusted for decency). The recipients of the TEXT forwarded to Lloyds Bank who took no action, inferring they accept racism from their employee Michael Huke, contrary to the Company’s anti-racist declaration.

    It's (mildly) interesting that it happened at this level; wanky speculation, but maybe lower stakes, not for the players or fans, but cumulatively in terms of vested interests, not as many pressures from outside in terms of sponsors, etc.

    Would be great if it shamed more high profile teams to do the same.

    And, of course, it remains a travesty that anyone has to take this stand in the first place. But yeah, well done to those that did.

    Quite possibly. Though I don't go to many Premiership games, so not sure how much it happens there?

    But, if both teams were united in walking off where and whenever it happened, other fans would stamp it out, I think. (Games resumed with same score, time left, and players (excepting injury) behind closed doors a later date.)

    Backed up by really serious efforts to identify ban and criminality prosecute offenders. With clubs who fail to do so facing really serious sanctions e.g. points deductions.

    editor, can this thread be merged with the one about the Haringey incident, please?

    You missed this GarveyLives ...
    Patrice Evra: Jamie Carragher apologises for Luis Suarez T-shirts - Patrice Evra: Jamie Carragher apologises for Luis Suarez T-shirts

    And countless other incidents over the last week or so.
    Or do you just sit there waiting until its Chelsea? A bit like the red top you disgracefully quote on here now and again.

    I've said it before, people like you targeting Chelsea time and again only make the problem worse. You give keyboard nazi warriors somewhere to aim. You are proving nothing other than an agenda against Chelsea FC and its massive genuine fan base.
    Why dont you just change your username to Garveyloves Chelsea, get it over and done with you obsessed pillock.

    Here's a little gift garveyloveschelsea,



    From a Chelsea fan as well, imagine that.

    And for other more grown up people here, I never realised Macabee was still going. He done a song about the Poll Tax Riots and mentioned my late wife in it getting trampled by police horses.

    In a tale of our times a father and son accused of hurling homophobic and racist abuse at a Premier League football game have walked free from court after the prosecution case collapsed after the Crown Prosecution Service failed to produce vital bodycam footage from police officers at the match:

    Alleged racial abuse of footballer dismissed as banter

    Gaetan Bong racism trial: Father and son walk free as case collapses

    [​IMG]

    (Source: PA Media)

    Burnley fan Nathan Higgins, 19, and his father Stewart, 53, (pictured outside Brighton Magistrates Court) were accused of using the N-word and 'black b******' while abusing Brighton footballer Gaetan Bong. When questioned by a home fan, Stewart Higgins said: 'We're not racist. It's banter - it's just football,'.

    Stewart Higgins, an engineer, was charged with using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

    His son, Nathan, a student, was charged with the same offence, as well as using racially aggravated threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
