The lastest chapter in the desultory narrative on racism in football was written on Friday night in the FA Cup tie between Oldham and Liverpool.
It is alleged a Liverpool fan racially abused Oldham player Tom Adeyemi who was so upset at being called a “b**** cunt” he burst into tears. Boggart Blog thinks this incident is so serious we have linked to a report of it in Britain’s most reliable newspaper, The Currant Bun which we trust to give a completely unbiased account of any story concerning Liverpoool.
Although our intitial reaction to this latest race row was that Adeyemi should have been red carded for being a wuss and a big girl’s blouse, we later heard the testimony of Liverpool fans which puts a different perspective on the incident. They insist he was called a “Mank bastard”. Now that really is racism.
Changing topic slightly; I put the Manchester United / City match on a few minutes ago and the first thing I heard was that City had had a men sent off. Obviously someone had looked at Partice Evra “a bit funny.”
