    It's something to do with 'genius' rhyming with a certain part of his anatomy. 'Kick it Out!' (where we they in the 80's incidentally) complain that this stereotypes black men. But if the inspiration for the ditty is actually because he wears 13.5 size boots, who is doing the stereotyping then?

    Wonder what people think about the situation of United and Hampshire police supposedly working together to identify people who sung this? Yep, it's racist relating cock size to ethnicity - and it's racist even if the thing being sung is a 'compliment'. But this also smacks of PR and process - 'we've been forced to do something and will go with 'liaising' with plod'. And if it was racist and presumably a criminal offence a couple of games ago, why didn't they do something then?

    Here comes my first inquiry about a footballer's penis size in about 15 years on urban:

    So, is that it then? Fans extrapolate from shoe size, United hierarchy and Kick it Out extrapolate from his ethnicity??

    Who knows what it was originally really about, apart from the response being an example of the the politics of the campus being applied to the terraces.

    And while the offending ditty is on the crass side, the response to the middle class finger-wagging is genuinely witty. Accordingly, if it is considered to be guilty as charged for singing the first song, then surely an equally guilty verdict must apply for the 'assumption' contained in the second one?

    And then what?

    Politically approved song sheets handed out prior to games?

    With an obligation on every single fan in the ground to provide proof to the authorities that they sung at least one of the them with the necessary gusto?

    Aye, for decades football's top brass didn't give a fuck about racism. Now there's a top-down, prescriptive, diversity policy approach that shades into actual criminal justice in this case (though I doubt there are actually going to be arrests).

    Ffs – seriously. Involve the police? What a waste of their time and resources.

    Hardly a “zigger zigger zigger chant.

    By all means ask fans not to chant it (and I wouldn’t sing it personally just I don’t sing about Tits, Fanny and United) but threaten to punish people. Jesus.

    Just brings anti-racism into disrepute.

    That's it though, the motivations of those seemingly involving the police are not actually anti-racist, or anything most people would understand as antiracist.

    It does appear that the bar is being raised in a surreptitious way purely to ensure 'most people' will be unable to clear it. What the insiders seem happy to ignore is that if 'race' is all you ever feed in, eventually 'race' is all you will ever get out.

    The Martial/Rashford rotation is working like a charm so far isn't it?

    still not convinced by our scoring prowess. City seem to demolish teams more often than us.

    City have a better and more exciting starting 11 but United probably a better and deeper squad.

    Could be neck and neck. 1968 anyone?

    There is also the potential for teams to demolish City more often.

    Certainly Saturday's squad + pogba in a few week + Ibra in 3 months looks pretty strong.

    This Utd team is turning into Mou-era Chelsea isn't it? An abundance of talent marshalled to contain rather than dominate against equals. If it gets trophies then fair play, but, and I never thought I'd say this, I really miss the old Utd. At least you were entertaining.

    I once had egg and chips in a pub in Huddersfield and somebody sneezed on it. Not been back since.
