have named the bloke from the Chelsea game, they've named his wife, his kids, they've put a photo up of his house. all this and he's not been arrested or contacted by the police.

now for what its worth, it looks as though he's said Black, not Manc, but i'm not a judge jury or executer.... and last time I checked neither were the papers.

if proved he hasn't said the word black then surely he's going to get some sort of pay out? if proved it was black then punish him accordingly.

but im pretty sure every single person in their footballing supporting lives will have shouted some form of abuse, whether it be delia being a whore, holt being a cnt, or we get sht refs.....

It doesn't need to be proved he didn't say the word 'black' it needs to be proved that he did if there is to be a conviction.

As for the Daily Mail they almost daily include some sort of apology for previous misdemeanours, nobody takes any notice but their readers lap up the original story.

That's disgusting naming his family, even to name him without being arrested let alone being charged is disgusting too, racial abuse is the lowest of lows I know, I thought we'd stamped that one out years ago, however, I can't help but think that in football it's generally been anything goes over the years in order to get into the heads of the best opposing teams player/players to gain an advantage, even to the point of not considering their actions, where do you draw the line with abuse though?

I remember my Father telling me that when Peter Shilton came to PR in the 80's with Forest. Town fans just kept taunting him with "Tina, Tina" all through the game whist he was up the North Stand end........the name of Shiltons partner who was killed in a car crash....shocking really..
None of those singing that would ever dream of saying that to him outside a football ground I'm sure, it was purely to unsettle him, at any cost...

If what you say is true then surely they are contravening GDPR and safeguarding...I guess they believe they can get away with mostly anything if they see it as 'in the public interest'. Also...its just not limited to printed matter...its all forms of media.
I am of the persuasion that what he said about 'Manc' rather than the players colour could well be truthful as standing behind them was a black guy...who didn't seem to be reacting at all at what was said....my wife said there also was a black steward, who I haven't seen, who similarly did not react.
Of course in all this I am no way defending any form of abuse but like many on here I am really sceptical of all that is presented to us through the lens of the media. Who knows Trump may have a point.

From what I remember about Shilton, he was having an alleged affair with a young lady called Tina, he was actually married in 1970 and despite the alleged affair, it lasted 40 years. He used to get banter about the affair at away games, but that was before the young lady died and he always denied having any relationship with her.

I do remember the chant, but as this is a family site, I will not repeat it on here.

Leveson Inquiry.

Rather predictably:

“Prime Minister David Cameron, under whose direction the inquiry had been established, said that he welcomed many of the findings, but declined to enact the requisite legislation. Part 2 of the inquiry was to be delayed until after criminal prosecutions regarding events at the News of the World,but the Conservative Party's 2017 manifesto stated that the second part of the inquiry would be dropped entirely, and this was confirmed by Culture Secretary Matt Hancock in a statement to the House of Commons on 1 March 2018.”

Before you get too self righteous, Shilton has just been caught in a car with said Tina, doing the wild thing, as it were, she had not died when the Nirth Stand gave him stick. Give ‘70’s Town fans some credit

I know it’s no relevance but I happen to have met Peter Shilton.

It was at a football tour years ago. We won the ‘fair play award’ and I was the captain. He presented it and then came and spoke for a bit afterwards. Really nice bloke. Half of my team didn’t know who he was which was a bit of a tragedy to football though.

I’m sure she does. And so do the majority of women - I have season tickets with two women who certainly find it extremely offensive.

It’s clearly misogynist. You’d never hear such a song sung about a male chairman.

I do understand it’s all part of the tribalism, but that doesn’t make it any more acceptable.
