I'm inclined to agree. Equally the holier-than-thou calling out that seems to serve more as self aggrandisement or virtue signalling (to use a current 'in' phrase) than rational and constructive critique.I cannot abide the culture of making people accountable for every utterance, every mis-step, in their lives. If we're not allowed to be ignorant or stupid, how do we learn not to be?
This is the same fa who have decided to stop champagne celebrations at fa cup finals blaming it on those from different backgrounds. Deliberately stirring the racism hornets nest imo. They lap shit up like tweets from when footballers were kids. Meanwhile being totally ignorant to more important issues.Ask yourself this question, if Choudhury wasn’t himself Asian would they have done this?
I was reading about the Gateshead situation earlier. All seems to have gone to shit.This is the same fa who have decided to stop champagne celebrations at fa cup finals blaming it on those from different backgrounds.

My local side Gateshead are dead. Fans are setting up a new club because the owner isn't actually the owner (allegedly of course) and the club is allowed to be ran into the ground by someone banned from owning a football club. The FA and conference suits couldn't give a **** about that though.
I've often thought this when this kind of stuff comes up. Easy enough to delete a 6 year old tweet innit? Then I remember...Footballer. Thick as pigshit most likely.Slight counterpoint:
Clean up your ****ing paper trail. You’re a professional footballer under scrutiny. Takes five minutes to clean up your mess before it gets exposed to the world.
