I dunno WHAT'S worse, one of our OWN fans abusing one of OUR players.. or the fact he's probably one of the nicest, most popular members of the squad!!

Or it could of been a "joke".Let's not get too carried away with this, according to that report it was ONE person shouting abuse!
Now he could be a Manu/tourist fan or at worst a part time, day tripper, pissed Spurs man.
Totally unacceptable in all cases but I can't believe it would be a regular or anorak like us as he is one of the best loved players?
A few Greyhound burgers and he'll be full of running?
That’s just mental.
I've heard it as well, it's a bit worrying because it all seems to be directed at Son.
You make a hugely important point on the subject of racism. Sadly reporting on racism towards an Asian, Caucasian isn't really a hot topic in the medias eyes so they don't give a fuck about it. The media report on things for one reason and one reason only, hits and money.Think this is a very valid point on twitter:
I was at Woolwich spurs and its rife towards all Asian players, shouting ch**ky this and that, not one of them would dare call a black player a n***er out loud at Woolwich. Disgusting, media dnt pick up on it either.
And another reply on twitter that shows that it's an ongoing problem:
Shocked and not shocked. Confronted a landlady in local pub who used that very word towards Son whilst watching a Spurs game in her dreadful little boozer. I was then rounded on by her locals.
You're forgetting Gingers... the last accepted casual discrimination based on a colour!! Especially in England!I've heard it as well, it's a bit worrying because it all seems to be directed at Son.
This kind of Racism towards East-Asians dosen't seem to bring about the same negative reaction that other forms of racism do.
It's passively accepted a lot of the time.
Basically ban the cunt for life.
