    I know this is tongue in cheek, Fabs, but those two situation aren't even remotely comparable.

    Constantly joking about how every black African player is older than they claim to be is unquestionably verging into racism. The insinuation is that the individual is dishonest and/or that the country they came from is incapable of record-keeping. It's insulting and demeaning. Africa is a vast and varied continent and while there may have been a handful of high-profile age fraud cases in the past, using those to define every black African player is a very obvious example of bigotry.

    I'm sure I've made the joke in the past. Probably more when the Lazio players age said 17. But probably again too casually which as you say, isn't acceptable.

    I'll refrain from making a comment, UNLESS someone doesn't actually look their age e.g. Sangare. Doesn't matter the ethnicity/country of birth. If someone looks older or younger - I'll make a comment.

    Its the Echo that's reporting it. If there's any truth to it, then I think we'd be selling Bobby.

    I said bluebell went OTT, and tnh is skirting the finest of lines from casual racism to outright full on racist chat.

    I don't think everyone uses it every instance there's a black player of african descent. Like Nomad said, using it when someone clearly looks older than they are, i don't think it's racist to throw in the age comment. If Harry Kane and his speech impediment is fair game to call him a mong, i don't see a problem calling sangare out for looking in his 30s.

    Calling Kane a mong is horrid.

    I wouldn't have thought there is any real genuine intent to be racist on bluebell's part. The whole African player / age comment is a fairly long running thing on 6CM and elsewhere.

    The problem with bluebell co-opting it is that he's repetitive and unfunny so it comes across quite badly. Woland kinda nailed it a couple pages ago.

    Yet it happens with less outcry.

    Personally, I limit my insults to "cunt" or something that they've actively said or done. In the case of Kane, I'd say he was a "look at me" cunt who would sacrifice his own daughter for a goal.

    It's really not that big a deal. Just a bit casually racist. All that really means is leaning into stereotypes a bit much.

    Everyone does it from time to time.

    You could argue that word is pretty insulting to women and misogyny is as bad as racism. 80+ MPs currently under investigation for groping. Probably worse being a woman there than being black.

    So effectively any insult is insulting cos it demeans a real life thing. Lets all hug and chose the non gender specific pronoun we want to be referred by. Sigh

    I see Barcelona have leaked DeJongs contract details, what a scummy sly club they are.

    A couple of years ago they’ll have been sucking him off, telling him the team will be built around him for the next decade. Now they want to cash in they completely betray his privacy and try to make him out to be some kind of money grabbing leech to the fans.

    Not sure why any player wants to go there nowadays.

    Last I heard of him he was shooting someone, or something to do with being in possession of a firearm.

    Does he even play football anymore?

    Like what cunt does that. Who publicly swears on his daughter's life as a way of claiming a goal. Doesn't even matter if it the ball brushed his hair, just the fact that he brought his daughter into it says enough of what kinda cunt he is

    Just read that Neco Williams isnt training with the others and no lactate testing etc, so fingers crossed he will get a move away asap.

    And born in Catalonia, Spain (that’s still Spain right?) too.
    It’s not like facts ever to get in the way of lazy racism before though.

    It looks very likely Arsenal will need a CM this window too.
