    Racism will never be out the game whilst racism is allowed if the player is good.

    Kick if out lost the fight when Suarez and Terry were not banned for life just because they are too valuable to their clubs.

    You can defend against it by making your hat out of tinfoil apparently.

    Liverpool is a very strange choice of team for someone who has apparently been a victim of racial abuse.

    Surely he's aware of the disgusting way that club support Suarez for being a racist clam? Only Chelsea would be a worse option IMO and it's close.

    The Earl of Bothwell and second husband of Mary queen of Scots. He died a penniless looney in a prison cell in Denmark. So you're descended from a mad jock then Scara?

    A misunderstood and harshly treated rogue the establishment couldn't cope with, yes. A man hard done by who would have been treated differently by history had he found himself on the right side of politics at the time.

    Metallica are overrated. Although this morning I had breakfast in a 5 star hotel next to someone who looked a lot like the lead guitarist from Metallica. And when I left breakfast there was a security chap with an ear piece checking who came in and out.

    My eggs benedict were slightly under done. A flipping travesty. 5 stars and you can’t cook an egg. You do realise I would capitalise benedict and even eggs, if it twernt for Roland Beurre.

    Thankfully things are much better in the English game than when the late, great Cyrille Regis was forging the way for black footballers back in the 1970s and 80s.

    Great chat on BT sport about this tonight and conclusion was that although Racism is getting less and less there is still an unhealthy level in the game.

    Players are not allowed 3rd party support from KickitOut etc whilst any investigation is taking place, that seems mental.

    Just came across it now on Twitter.
    It is indeed ridiculous - although Troy Townsend didn’t seem too sure about whether PFA involvement is allowed. I’d imagine it must be as that’s effectively the players union.

    Sounds like there’s still a lot of work to do - especially with social media, which is always going to be a challlenge while bigots, bullies and cowards can shelter behind anonymity.

    I know I always bang on about it but as long at players like Terry or Suarez are not sacked by clubs for use of the N-Word all because they are too good and too valuable then the fight is gonna be tough. It sets the wrong example to the sport and the wider world if you set a different standard for players than anyone else in life
