Would be nice if some players put their money where their mouth is and boycotted the World Cup. I don't see that happening though.Just taking things on a tangent.Next year the England team could be playing in Qatar at stadiums built by modern slavery.How does that sit with the FA ?
There is a fair bit of hypocrisy floating about as per usual.
On the on going debate about taking the knee :
We are told that it’s nothing to do with the BLM movement,fair enough but that statement gets confused when broadcasters have BLM logos & clubs have them plastered around the stands ?
I personally do not see a issue if players want to show solidarity on this issue.Its a group decision & fair play to them.But the flip side is a poisonous atmosphere before the game starts.
This is not going to end well.
No good can come of it and the worst thing is it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference to either side. It affects no one positively or negatively. A racist isn't going to suddenly think I like everyone cos he was Immobile, sorry, Harry Maguire doing some knee. Equally, booing is pointless, it changes nothing.
