Why would a racist Bulgarian tangle with a white England supporter?

 

Is it perhaps because were a multicultural society and we may have more than just white fans out there!!

I have been to one or two England away games ( not out of personal choice I must add ) and at the time , 15-20 yrs ago ,I saw no non-white fans . From what I see today little has changed.

Quite impressive how, in a 6-0 victory, Harry Winks still manages to be completely anonymous.

Ukraine hold on to qualify, despite Taylor giving the Portuguese a goal.

 

Good match. Portugal dominated possession and chances, but Ukraine tried to play, and didn't just hoof it deep.

 

Pyatov made a couple of fantastic saves.

That’s good, Ukraine has a great tradition of nice football. They’ve had good results with youth team.

I don't know what you think you read, but I suggest reading it again.

 

My argument is that nations who have embraced racial diversity have reaped the benefits, not least in the sporting arena.

Nations who have embraced racial diversity? Are you talking about Britain?

 

I mean, fuck Bulgarian fascists. But a country with Britain's imperialist history, currently riddled with xenophobia. A country in which I raise my half-Irish and half-Polish kids and experience - on a charitable interpretation - pure national ignorance on a daily basis...

 

Maybe some sense of perspective is called for here?

Without commenting on your specific experiences, I don't see how it can be argued that there is not substantial racial diversity in the UK.

There is. That doesn't mean it's embraced...

That said, not to be entirely negative, I've just ordered one of these:

I'd say it mostly is. I mean, I don't like this government, but our Prime Minister has Turkish Muslim and German Jewish ancestry, our Chancellor of the Exchequer is a Pakistani Muslim, our Foreign Secretary is a Jew and our Home Secretary is Ugandan Indian. And you just won't hear the kind of disgusting chants heard tonight, or see the Nazi salutes seen tonight, in a British stadium.

    • Some people put out a depleted XI against Shrewsbury, others put out a depleted XI against Real Madrid.
    • Jürgen Klopp has a strong ally in his decision to give his senior players a week off during the scheduled winter break rather than play in the fourth round replay against Shrewsbury.

      Klopp has received some criticism in some quarters, but Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers spoke strongly in favour of the German. 

      The Echo reported the Northern Irishman as saying:

      “He's well within his rights to do that.

      “That's why you have your first-team squad, you have reserve players and why you have youth players.

      "I said a number of weeks ago that the load that is put on players and the pressure that some players have over the December, Christmas period, this week was designed (to help that).

      “It's not really you would say a break, but it's something at least for the players to have and to go away and recover a little bit.

      "To then organise the replays within that was ridiculous.

      Rodgers believes managers should have every right to pick their team because player welfare should be at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

      “Jurgen is within his rights to pick whatever team he wants to pick.   "If he's going to decide to rest all his players for the benefit of the club, because that's who he is employed by, then that's what he does and he has every right to do that."  

      Importantly, Gini Wijnaldum is also right behind his manager’s actions and spoke about how important this break is for a player. 

      'Since I've been in the Premier League I've played the season without a winter break but I also know, before I came to the Premier League, how good it is for a player to have some rest.

      'After the rest you can go again. Your body is more rested than if you keep on going, so that's a good thing.

      “As a player you want to be involved in every game there is but you also have to deal with your body and sometimes your body just says that it is not the right choice to do.

      'You just have to see how the situation is but if the manager decides that the younger players are going to play the game then we should accept it.'

      Former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand understood the reasoning, but believed that Klopp should be on the touchline for the contest.

      "When you are a successful team, you are fighting on all fronts and Liverpool are doing that. I totally understand you have to shuffle your pack.

      “He wants to make sure his squad remains fresh and if he thinks he can get through to the next round with a younger team, then so be it. 

      “It's a great experience for those players.

      “The only issue I have and he's taking a liberty in some ways, is if he's not actually going to be in the dugout.
        “That's where I draw the line. I think the manager should be in the dugout for every game.   'It doesn't matter whether he's putting out a depleted squad or not."

    • I think our best possible "alternative" side should play. I reckon the "alternative" senior players should want to play - especially the ones who failed to impress yesterday. And I'd love it if Jurgen managed the game, and explained the reason for his turnaround: that his dedication and integrity in leading the club - and respecting paying fans - overrode his disillusionment with the convenient sense of propriety and inconsistency displayed by the nation's leading football bodies. That, to me, would be making an even bigger stand than the one he's currently planning on making.    
    • If only we'd got the job done yesterday... I'd be writing this in a non-existent thread.
