    Football commentators

    Football commentators are now in the firing line for being racist! Just reading the article about this ludicrous assertion just makes me want give up on it all. Apparently, black players are not praised enough for their skill, only for their physical strength; the Idiotic PFA have probably spent a fortune on this so-called ‘research’, talk about a waste of money! The whole football world has gone f*****g mad. As for Gordon Taylor, the bloke is a total knob!

    Not only the football world but the whole world. Best we say nothing.

    The problem is that if you utter anything that black or ethnic minorities may object to you are classed as racist. Look at the situation in Leicester. We all know where the problems lie but will the authorities give the post codes of the hot spot areas? No. To be honest they should have put the new measures in place for the whole of Leicestershire. I live in a village about eight miles from the city centre and the new legislation doesn't apply to us. However, in practice what will happen is that all the 'morons' who ignore the rules will travel out of the city to pubs in the areas not affected by the lockdown. Why can't we have the same policing as they did in Germany and stop people leaving lockdown areas. Oh no, that will breach their civil liberties. What about the civil liberties of those of us who haven't broken the rules. I just wish someone in authority would say it as it is and not come out with bland meaningless statements.

    It was OK for Berahino to be texting when driving - pissed when driving - shagging around when married and an absolute arse hole when this country and West Brom took him under their wing. Perhaps - he was not praised enough! Well he's a w anker and always will be.

    As for the defensiveness about all lives matter - of course they do! As for the slogan on football shirts and taking a knee which I agreed with in the first match. Yawn yawn - the majority of people are now bored with it! What about a slogan on shirts - donate to cancer as cancer cases will explode when blood tests resume and visiting the GP. People need to get a grip!
