    Kiko Casilla

    Reading on Leedsnewsnow that (allegedly) 2 Charlton players heard Casilla say a racist comment to the lad who put in a complaint.

    6 game ban if found guilty..maybe be off loaded in January?

    Not good.

    Definitely not good if he did do it.

    Not sure it's not good if we off-load him in January. Still gives me the heebie jeebies every time he juggles the ball with various parts of his lower body on the penalty spot in front of the on-rushing attacker.

    Was going to post that it sounded like Charltons players just rallying around their own. Then had a quick glance at some other info which suggests the EFL brought in lip readers & Spanish translators with the outcome not looking good for Kiko.

    I dont condone racism/discrimination or bullying, so for me if he is guilty of such behaviour, I think the club needs to come down on him hard.

    If (and we all know he will be) found guilty they will hammer him, in view of recent events the powers that be will feel they have to set an example and who better than the Leeds goalkeeper.

    Looks like the FA are wanting to make an example given what happened in Bulgaria and hand out a 8 to 12 game ban.

    It has got a 'lets shaft Leeds' feel to it but he deserves all he gets if its proven.

    Will be interesting to see how the club deal with it too, we could ask him to take a pay cut and then fire him if he refuses!

    I'm not sure there's a Leeds slant to this at all - remember John Terry and Luis Suarez?

    If (and from reports it seems pretty clear cut) he's done it, then they need to throw the book at him and i don't want players like that at Leeds United.

    Us and the FA jez..always gives me a feeling of paranoia.

    Deserves all he gets if found guilty but don't be surprised if the FA go to town and invent a new lengthy ban......

    Find it hard to believe someone of his experience and stature is out there spewing racial slurs. The FA record speaks for itself

    If they have lip readers/translators and he's said what he's supposed to have said, then why is he denying it so strenuously and the Club backing him, doesn't make sense?

    That does puzzle me too, really hope he is innocent somehow

    I guess like Suarez if you deny it for long enough people might believe you and your reputation is somewhat maintained in the game and in the face of all the various people you play with and against.

    You get to keep the player, and maintain the status quo, even if you are sure you're not doing the right thing. Horrible thought.

    Carragher came out last week and said they had been wrong to support Suarez in the way they did - could be another case of that for us, if the evidence is clear.

    Also - financial reasons? Depending on how bad it was/might be, he's costing us 50 grand a week at present, so who would buy him/buy him out if he admits it? Would we be stuck with a lemon nobody wants? Would we be able to cancel a contract on the basis of his behaviour?

    I dunno - whatever way you look at it, it would stink if it's clear he did it. Marcelo winning the fair play award in those circumstances?!

    Fanniehairy (or what eva its name is) was cleared of any racial abuse by a UK Magistrates court but was still charged by the FA and banned for 6 games!

    FA are corrupt to the core so expect the worst guilty or not..

    Lance Armstrong strenuously denied wrong doing and we all know how that ended

    My cousins son and daughter in law are both deaf and lip read family and friends who don't know how to sign. To understand fully what people are saying they need to look at you straight on and you should articulate clearly. Even then they do not always "read" the correct words. So as far as I am concerned bringing lip readers and Spanish language lip readers does not mean that what they say he said is totally correct.

    And I did read somewhere, one of the groups on facebook I think, that this same lad has in the past accused at least 3 other players of doing the same thing. How true this is I don't know.

    If he did say anything racist then hell mend him. If he didn't then the Charlton lad needs a good talking to.

    I await with baited breath the full transcript from the FA

    It would be interesting if he did get a 8-12 game ban as rumoured. It would mean they've made their minds up already before speaking to Casilla despite denying they have made any decisions.

    Not sure how true this is but the alledged racist comment/remark Kiko supposedly said was to a Leeds defender "Mark the black lad".

    If true..and that is considered to be racist..then I think..well I don't know what to think to be honest..seems very extreme to call it a 'racist' remark.
