still worrying tho, seems to be a culture growing of claiming racist abuse when someone pisses you off on the field. the campaign should be "stamp out fake racism claims".

Saw the Barcelona game , Fabregas definitely said something but so did Shearer to Keane years , always wanted to know what it was.

The race card is being thrown around because it exists , ask Andy Cole who was called Chalky by an adult trainer at one of his clubs.

don't put words in my mouth. racism is a problem, but all these fake racist claims do a disservice to players who are actually getting racist abuse don't you think?

Think that was covered in Keane's book; it wasn't anything anti-Irish he said I am sure.

Terry is saying "blind" in that clip.

I blame Evra for this. He has cheapened the debate.

Paul Stewart called Keane and Irish so and so a few years ago, clearly audible on the telly. Keane told him to piss off and clattered him later on in the game.

That was the end of it.
