Although some countries have got a pretty backwards culture with regards to racism, most of the racism that has been reported in this country this year has come domestically - most recent of which against our very own bolasie. But it seems to me this season there's been more reported instances than ever - this might just be that more players are coming forward about it now but either way it's very concerning 

While this is still going on, absolutely no criticism can be directed at any other country. Sort your own house out first etc. 

They are many problems in this country but no where near as overt as some of the Eastern European countries I’ve lived in/visited. (Unfortunately that just makes our racists also cowards to boot) but I will continue to call it out wherever I see it regardless of where it comes from if you don’t mind 👍

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Haha absolutely. My comment was more directed at a national level than any individual level. As in don't say "this country has so many problems" when similar is evident in your own country, if that makes sense? Ireland isn't any better, trust me! We should be focusing on individuals rather than lumping anything into one.

Slavia Prague should be kicked out of the competition, and I'm not just saying that as an Arsenal fan. 

The comments from the club and a large proportion of it's fans on social media following this incident is absolutely shocking. If UEFA really are serious about kicking out racism (hint hint, they're not) then they would set an example here that it is absolutely not acceptable.

I didn't try to bash other countries ... Western countries have issues too ... But the general opinion is far worse in Russia and other countries ... It's more accepted to have racist opinions ... 

Neo nazism is sadly thriving in Russia .. 

It's sadly a fact .. and not my opinion to bash a country

I concur with that. We are nowhere remotely close to being a beacon of virtue in this country but business travels in Eastern European countries over several decades has opened my eyes to just how rampant intolerant attitudes are and how hate is openly perpetuated.

Only this morning I was reading about Poland and how it is being dragged back to the 1950's and then the next article I read was about Turkey and Erdogan withdrawing from the Istanbul Convention on women's rights, which aims to protect women against violence. This is 2021 and it is worryingly sounding like the 1930's in parts of the world.

The most frightening part for me is that it's seemingly ingrained and conditioned and not even recognised as being wrong, in fact quite the opposite.

They are really winding back the clock in regards to the attitudes toward the LQBT community. Especially as it is mainly coming from Government, passing bills etc.

That is one of my big beefs about football and sporting authorities in general.

They preach tolerance and come up with these campaigns that have good intentions but very little impact.

Then when they are confronted with open hatred / intolerance, they promptly stick their heads in the sand, instead of taking action to deal with it...or at least not letting those attitudes have a chance to gain any publicity or credibility within their tournaments.

A lot like the UN really...issuing lots of condemnations and passing sanctions that hurt everyone but their intended targets, instead of taking meaningful action.

It is scary indeed.

Not just Russia but China too with its enslavement of the Uighurs and continuing drive to turn Hong Kong into another vassal state. Also militarising islands in the South China Sea. I can see that causing issues similar to when Iran captured those cargo ships.

Not to mention utterly failing to intervene in Yemen and sort that whole mess out. Like the Saudis can be trusted to do that.

So much crap going on and the rest of the world is just standing by and watching it happen...

Have a feeling we're gonna be reaping the whirlwind sooner or later.

In another pretty vile twist some Slavia ultras have unveiled a racist banner directed at Kamara. 😔

All over twitter at the moment.

Of course they have, they're from a *** horrible club from a socially backwards country.

Seriously, UEFA should be throwing them out of the competition.

Blimey. Bournemouth are getting absolutely tonked in the FA cup. Three down and it could be six. 

Just shows the huge chasm between the Premiership and the upper echelons of the Championship especially considering that it wasn't that long ago that Bournemouth were in the Premiership.

    • Last I heard Maguire wasn't gonna make it. I just read he might not even play in any of the group games. Honestly, let's say we get through the group with aplomb, do you even bring him back in after that? Is he good enough to justify it? I guess it depends on the individual performances of Mings, White or Coady. It's quite hard to predict the first team for this game. Pickford, Walker, Stones, Rice and Kane are the only ones really that I'd be pretty convinced of.  The Independent has had a guess at what looks like a 4-2-3-1: Pickford Walker Stones Mings Shaw Rice Phillips Sterling Mount Grealish Kane
    • I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.   I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted af and so I'm sure it's going to happen.    Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again...    living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning!    in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.   now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.   a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.   UTB and come on england!
    • It's been all over the place since Eindhoven.
    • we realy don't know how the club operates behind the scene.    
    • im guessing you are trying the same tactic as me - end up at that bottom and then in the knockout stages swoop to eliminate a top seed!!!
