I do understand that Pickles wants a weaker City, but that's not what I am talking about


That's the way I see it. But suppose they have to be seen to be doing something as it is in the public eye. I wouldn't condemn the guy for what he done though

I think any public racial stereotyping should be punished. Iím not overly PC by any stretch but if the FA and kick it out are serious they canít pick and choose what they punish. It wasnít like the Suarez or Terry incident so no need to go over the top but it needs sanctioning none the less or anything the FA and kick it out have done is undermined.

I agree, all public racism should be dealt with, its odd that Conguitos choose/are allowed to use the branding, we removed similar characters from Jam Jars years ago.

The views of John Barnes is that the narrative must change.

He is saying that if action is taken against Silva then its sending out the wrong message.
