Read that twice and it still makes fuck all sense

has it not pissed you off over the years that you have gone to a game , met mates , had a few beers , get in the ground , chatting away , players come out . 

Next thing we are on a 1 or 2 minutes silence

the rest of the country are shopping , shagging or just doing their own shit

it is always the football fan that has to comply and be held up as right wing morons if, god forbid,

someone steps out of line on their day off / paid for entertainment

It is though mate. When our coppers started kneeling and the like at these protests etc then it became synonymous. The message is tarnished to many. 

Our coppers then became easy targets getting attacked and laughed at by gangs in London sad really

If i get the chance to go into the stadium.

I will applaud the players as they run out.

Then go back under the stand , while the charade is played out .

When the match starts i will return to my seat.

Haha do you realise how pathetic that is

You’ll take the time to go to your seat. 
Clap. 
Then get out of your seat.

Go back under the stand 

Whilst your own team kneels in support of equality for black people. 
Rather than just stay there quietly and not pay it any mind.

What a sad state of affairs.

As a black person that actually upsets me, and as a wanderer I’d be devastated

I'd rather not see players taking the knee at a game I was attending, because I think it's an empty gesture. The black millionaires raising their fist doesn't do anything for the genuinely downtrodden ethnic minorities. It's now just symbolism.

Real action needs to take place, rather than going through the motions.

so you are more than happy for tory politicians to tell you how to behave on a Saturday afternoon if say ,god forbid Jacob Rees Mogg gets knocked down by a bus tomorrow you would be more than happy to observe a 5 mins silence for him before the footy match that you have paid for a ticket for , whilst knowing that everyone that knew the twat were hooray henrying at the IVY

Well said.

You’re spot on what a sad state of affairs.

Could you imagine if Santos/Kiosos/Fonz’s first experience of our fans is a booing/walk out.

Forget losing 3-6 at home, for me that would be a new low.

To be fair they might as well get used to it.

And we'll make up for it by singing about how big their cocks are second half.

Imagine how Nicky Hunt felt a few seasons in when his name was being Booed when they read the team out.

Just reading a bit in the Times on the Millwall incident....

The 25 year old Antigua and Barbuda player  said that he felt personally disrespected after a section of the crowed booed when both teams took part in an anti-racism gesture in support of the Black Lives Matter movement 

If the EFL and players are no longer supporting BLM then why have so many reputable media outlets missed it? Surely all they need to say is that they don’t support the Black Lives Matter movement and this whole sorry mess can be put to bed

Hardly ever happens. You make it sound like it's every other week.

Take it you're happy to knock the November one on the head?

Besides the last few have been a minutes applause because people can't keep their gobs shut these days

You get pissed off with a minutes silence? Jesus Christ. Which ones have you found particularly infuriating? Remembrance Day? Victims of a terror attack? A kid killed on his way to the match? What about a minutes applause? Does that wind you up too?

And do you honestly believe "Politicans" decide when we have them?

Gareth Farrelli was regularly booed, a few others over the years have to.

I can hold my chin up, I only boo at pantomimes, although this maybe reviewed for the 2021 panto season 🤓

This will be my last post in this thread but here’s a story.

When I was a kid I played football and I was decent, got a few player of the year trophies, I was fuckin rapid and scored goals for fun. One game a lad called me a fuckin wog, it got to me. I can still picture the lad now.

This happened quite a bit, and everytime it got to me, I had managers who did nothing.

Growing up when I attended the wanderers matches I loved it, but I witnessed racism that hurt, I got it delivered to myself from home and away fans. 
 

That takes serious strength to continue to go to matches.

I became a professional football coach and I’ve been on the end of racist abuse as a coach, even by fans of the club I work for. 
 

Having a child now who may witness and suffer racist abuse it breaks my heart, I sometimes think you know what I’d die before she got the same treatment as I have done.

Seeing any person be hurt or killed because of the colour of their skin, it takes me back to when I was a kid. It hurts.

Seeing any player suffer racist abuse, takes me back. Breaks my heart.

How in 2020 is this still happening?

Then George Floyd is killed, and I just think how is this happening because of his skin colour, I look at my daughter, she’s the most amazing little thing but she’s mixed race and she might suffer abuse. It upset me, it took me back to my racist experiences. 
Then I see players of all creeds and colours kneeling in front of the worlds audience, saying enough is enough we want equality.

 
It send a sense of pride and emotion through me, I have lived through racism but we now live in a world where I’m less likely to be taken back to that horrible awful place.

If you are fed up of players kneeling, imagine how fed up how black people are of not feeling equal. 
 

Im out. x

There you go chaps.......

Very strong well worded post 👏🏻 however how do we know GF was killed because of the colour of his skin? I don’t think anyone bar those 3 coppers (one who was mixed race) have the answer to that.

No it is Not. I have never booed a Wanderers player. ( not even Zat Knight ).

And I will not sit / stand and watch a group of players ( some of whom are pressurised) into conforming to a media backed circus.

Some stood on their doorsteps to clap the NHs - It went on for a few weeks . Then the NHS said it had served its purpose.

The pundits on Sky and the BBC wore badges supporting BLM for a few weeks . They have now gone. ( public opinion).

Hopefully stadiums will slowly open, we can forget day to day shite and stand together to support our teams . Forget about political bullshit . It’s Sport not politics.

Nobody "decides" what you have to do. You can even be one of those cunts who disrupts a minutes silence if you want. Go for it. But if you seriously believe the Prime Minister or an MP tells Bolton Wanderers they must hold a minutes silence when one of their ex-players/supporters/players/staff dies, you have lost the plot.
