|Collymore documenting racist abuse|

If you click on his fleet it plays a slideshow. Full of the most horrific stuff and he explains s his stance on the Twitter silence.
Reading it, he makes a fair point as did Carlton Cole when the ESL was being debated. It’s a societal problem and will carry on being dismissed as a football one unfortunately, but I do wonder what this weekend will do as we progress from it.

Absolute scumbag behaviour. Essentially these lot are having a tantrum because they can’t dominate anymore being tacked onto more nuanced concerns about money. Personally all the ESL clubs should be destroyed and left to ruin, watching their fans getting uppity strikes an odd note.
The worst part is it plays into the old narrative about fans a Tory government desperate to appear tough on crime will love. Especially as they need distractions.

And a man up. All the dead rubber feel in every area of this game, but Andre has made us tick. Nice to see Teddy get chopped down and us be rewarded for it too.
Lots of mistakes and lacking in confidence but there’s a core of next seasons team there if Cook wants to make it so.

Longish thread but fascinating reading. Obviously it doesn’t sound like a similar fate awaits us because our owners share a nationality, but it’s always hard to watch any club fall apart like a house of cards innit

Whatever way you cut it. Whether you blame Cook, the players or the legacy of Evans. The club resets this summer whatever your bias.
The owners will be taking a whole toolbox of management, funding and recruitment to everything and everywhere. It might be another dismal failure of the magic we’ve been denied for years or something else entirely. But right now it’s just fulfilling our obligations to the league isn’t it?
We can learn absolutely nothing from these games it seems because we have no point of reference. But the idea that they are going to accept a month like we’ve just had seems the biggest thing to cling to.

I'll not link the tweet because it's uncensored and disgusting but uses the n word etc.
Yesterday I saw a screenshot supposedly of Liverpool fans sending monkey emojis to Wijnaldum if I remember rightly. I'm guessing it's hard to measure the full scale of this sort of abuse as every instance will not be reported or talked about. But what do we do?
Stigmatising and shaming these people for doing it doesn't seem to work.

Perhaps all the swing from euphoria to despair can settle a bit? If Cook walks, so be it. He's not the right man for the job is he? Getting rid of Evans was the main thing and it's done. Making ITFC something less like a 90's club and back into the 21st century is something we've been desperate for since he spaffed it all up the wall with Keane and Jewell.
Cook can hardly come out full of his wit and energy when we've produced nothing under him so far. He must be fuming with the players. If he's worth his salt he'll be hunkered down and planning what this new club can do now and how he can best direct it.
There has always been way bigger problems than the manager under Evans, they haven't magically gone away. But the point remains, this takeover was 14 months in the making and lots of doubts and derailments. It's here now, next season is when it can really be felt and live in a little.

Co-main event on a Fight Night card, but win this and he has to start getting towards a title shot.
Could be a one bit of light for Suffolk sports tonight!

I appreciate a few people always seem to question/dismiss things they aren't part of, but BA get more right than wrong in my book. Those having pops at them lately as things got fractious would do well have to read of that statement.

Feels like that will be one thing rushed through as a result of the takeover I guess.
