Not our finest moment as a club. When you fundamentally do not believe you are racist is is difficult to perhaps accept the criticism and figure out what is the right thing to do.

Still, you learn, you improve and move on.

It wasn't found that he was racist, but breached the rules in making reference to colour. Still so much ignorance about what actually went down with that, both on the pitch and at the EPL.

Though how Terry got away with it at the same time is the bit that rankles. Perhaps we should have made a complaint to the police, let them do a criminal investigation and when that failed EPL could drop it too.

Pragmatically, with hindsight, a mitigation defence would have been the prudent option, but meh.

Just seen this, about the Leeds GK being banned. To be honest this is the first I recall hearing of the incident. At a cursory glance it seems that there are similarities to the Suarez-Evra incident in terms of the evidence and burden of proof being discussed.
The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.
