Every week in the media there are accounts of horrible racist abuse. In a week we’ve seen Marcus Rashford go public, former icon Peter Beardsley has been disgraced, Hartlepool and Dover nearly abandoned their game due to a significant incident. Blundell Park has not seen this for a while but together with the Club, we need to keep this high on the agenda and promote equality and diversity. Clear to see by the club yesterday with the dragons at half-time and other initiatives in recent months.

I think the racism we are seeing in football today is a result of those at the top attempting to manage the country. Those that govern or want to govern have not been held to account for racist comments disguised as vitriolic bullying aka nationalism. And they have the nerve to make out football supporters are the problem.

On the lunchtime football program yesterday, there were 2 really pleasant young Chelsea players, answering the honesty questions. They were obviously great mates and they bounced humour off each other. One was black and with racism being in the forefront of sport at the moment, my thought went immediately to how could anybody in their right mind, racially abuse a decent boy like that?

Don't equate Nationalism with racism , because I love my country doesn't mean I am a racist?

I think you were posting that to make a non existent political point.

I think you are referring to patriotism, nationalism is at the detriment of others. Patriotism is the support and devotion to ones country.

I think you are referring to tribalism and that this thread should zoom off into non-footy.

All this diversity and inclusion is boring the bottom off me if I'm honest. On the TV and radio we have men being replaced by women. If it's a black woman, even better. Talksport and Sky employ illiterate chav Clinton Morrison at the expense of articulate proper football people. Alan Brazil is surely on his last legs at Talksport.

It's all balderdash, yes racism is wrong but I don't want to hear about it all day long, every day and that's what I'm getting as a white van driver at work. My mate was shown a straight red card last Sunday for calling someone a homosexual! Christ on a bike, what a load of shite.

To be fair I have not heard any racist remarks at B.P. in a long time. The only thing I did hear yesterday was their manager giving the plastic side pannel on the dug  out a massive thump in anger at the end. Not sure but I there was a massive crack in the perspex and the steward looked like he was reporting it.

Its very simple if a player reports reacila abuse, thats team next home game is played behind closed doors, its unfortunate for the other fans but it might start forcing people in the crowd to start reporting these idiots when they hear them if it means they won't get to see their club play


Alan Shearer tackled by a blue peter presenter

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!
