    Wasn’t the reason they didn’t boo because the QPR and Millwall players agreed not to kneel before the game? Instead, agreeing to link arms against racism rather than the kneeling symbol linked to BLM that the fans were booing in the first game?

    or did I imagine reading that? Quite possible!

    I thought some players still kneeled anyway?

    I’m not sure, I read about that before the game, but haven’t looked up what actually happened yet.

    If there was no kneeling, it's potentially an interesting mind exercise to explain the wildly different reactions to kneeling for equality and linking arms for equality.

    They were saying they were booing the BLM movement which the kneeling symbolised, not anti racism itself. Linking arms wasn’t a symbol for BLM so they agreed not to boo it.

    i can’t remember where I read this, will try and dig it out.

    I'm sure you are right, but they are wrong, the kneeling predates BLM by a long time.

    Just an excuse for a bunch of racists.

    The QPR players were the topic at the time. You cheeky minx, you.

    Thats horrific, they should be thrown out and banned for 10 years.

    Gerrard wasn't as vociferous when it was one of his teammates giving out racist abuse though was he.

    I think he might have been spared that due to injury.

    Since the players started taking the knee it's got 10 times worse
    Surely the Social Media sites could do more to stop this

    You shouldn't be allowed on social media unless you've verified who you are. Have an anonymous profile if you want, but everyone should be known to the company running the site and your details handed over to the police if you cross the line.

    Ah, thanks. I get it now.

    Why clip the bit you're talking about out of a screenshot? Makes it look like he's bitching about someone disliking his mother.

    Indeed, I had to look twice. Strange to crop it initially, I agree.

    Surely it can't be that hard to identify who that is?
