    I noticed our own club has failed to wish Jewish people well celebrating the Passover yesterday. Why is that? The clubs PR department had tweeted happy Christmas, happy Ramadan, happy Eid, they’ve celebrated transgender day by flying trannie flag yet seem to be ignoring the Jewish special day. Antisemitism inside the walls of Southampton FC perhaps?

    No PR to be had in Judaism. So last year’s religion

That one was clear, and I was pretty sure who shouted it as there’s a bloke with a big gob who mouths off every week (although that was the first time I’d heard him use that sort of stuff). He also shouted “cut his head off” when Salah had the ball (not sure if this is acceptable, but I felt uncomfortable). To my knowledge nobody confronted him (including myself). I think most people were like me, unsure of whether he actually said it, and then unwilling to speak out as he sits with a bunch of blokes.
    All week I wrestled with it, wondering if I should have done something. Thursday I emailed the club asking what process they have if I witness this behaviour again. They advised pointing him out to steward. Fast forward to Saturday and the bloke wasn’t in his seat. Maybe a coincidence, but I can’t remember him missing a game previously.

    Further to my earlier post I managed to get into a conversation about this racist chump with a steward today. He told me that following the Liverpool game the bloke was arrested and is under investigation for racist abuse. Evidently 2 people filmed him on their phones and then reported him to the club. He’s had his season ticket blocked and is potentially facing charges.

    They also celebrated transgender remembrance day, an important day in everyones calendar just 9 days after the other remembrance day. Or is that the one you mean? Wonderful to see that flag flying high over SMS though.

    A very important and noteworthy date, maybe more so than Passover?

    Why are you chumps so insecure and easily triggered? Irony is the last refuge of the dull and unimaginative.

    Sorry I hadn't replied to you, I was too busy insisting to NatWest that I'm an non-binary HDMI cable.

    The virtue signalling from our club is ridiculous. Free tampons in the women’s bogs with a little note on club headed paper about how they shouldn’t have to pay for them. It’s weird.

    Well done for following up on it. I've heard incidents but not always easy to identify who shouted the abuse and where they are sitting during a game.

    Having his season ticket revoked will be the least of this guy's problems if the law are involved. Having witnessed the abuse Danny Wallace had to put up with in the early 80s when I was kid at the Dell from away fans, it's appalling that we (society/football, rather than Saints specifically, have seen far more of it at some of the London clubs) still have this problem nearly four decades on.

    Though this weirdness will be dressed up as Saints 'leading the way' against discrimination - or some sh1te like that.

    No point putting a load of free muff blocks in the bogs anyway, you can guarantee some horrible chav would selfishly bag them all of herself (himself/themselves etc)

    It's not really surprising though is it. Human nature and the law of averages mean you will always get the odd neanderthal in a football crowd but it's nothing like the hordes of abuse suffered in the 80s, certainly not in the UK. Let's hope more people like lord duck hunter start calling these individuals out so at least these people know there are consequences to their actions.

    I believe it's "ximself."

    It is interesting that those of a far right persuasion seem to play down the level of racial abuse still endemic in this country. Despite high profile footballers coming out and saying that it is still an issue, there are regular reports that this is still a big issue here. This morning I was reading about the problem reported to Leicester FA about children as young as 7 being targeted for racial abuse and the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Football Forum has started to collate grassroots experiences from across the country. There have been monkey chants and Islamophobic remarks made towards players at kids games. One team of Asian children were told that they should be "blowing things up, not playing football." One parent offered a kid a banana saying that he should be used to it.

    We are used to high profile racism as practiced by the likes of Tommy Robinson. Apparently one of his milkshake episodes was caused by him constantly berating an innocent Asian guy about Asian rape gangs to the extent that the guy got fed up with him and emptied his milkshake over him. This heinous act has since caused the guy to receive death threats on top of the beating that he received from Tommy and his thugs at the time.

    Sadly we are used to these things happening on our streets, but when you hear of racist abuse being aimed at young kids it is very clear that there is still a strong racist element in this country. To pretend that we dont have the depth of problem here that they have elsewhere is not only foolish, it is covering up the threat that the far right still poses in the UK.

    Obviously the reference to blowing things up was saying they should be having fun playing with balloons rather than taking football seriously at such a to young age. As for the banana reference again I don't see the issue with this, bananas have excellent nutritional qualities particular used by athletes for carbohydrate refuelling during or after excessive exertion. I don't see how anyone can take issue with teaching children healthy eating habits particularly if it is going to enable them to improve their performance in their sport of choice. Of course those who want to see racism everywhere will do, but perhaps their patronising attitude towards non whites harks back to the era of imperialistic Britain when anyone non British needed our help and support as they weren't bright to look after themselves. Terrible really some are still in this mindset where feel they need to help the savages as they cant help themselves.

    Have you got some evidence behind your story? Lord knows I'm no fan of Robinson but the video I've seen was of a young guy pushing past others to shout stuff in his face, before later throwing a milkshake.

    There were 2 different milkshake incidents. I was quoting what the person involved in one of them made of the incident. It sounds like this was the other incident.

    Clearly Hughton skin colour has nothing to do with him being sacked. Has managed 4 clubs.
    But start playing dull negative football and you will always alienate fans. Got huge amount of lucky results earlier in season so could argue in a false position most of season.

    Sure he will get another job somewhere.

    Let's hope the association of black lawyers fella feels the same way. Personally I think it would be fantastic if a black British man started tearing it up with one of the top teams. It would hopefully stop the whinging from some of those types.
