Kick it Out

Football crowd in Serbia taunting Spurs players and supporters
Arrests at football matches in England and Wales last season were the lowest on record. The number of arrests made for racist and indecent chants has fallen my a massive 76 per sent since 2000, with just 21 people detained last season. 
Most detained by the boys in blue were predictably at Manchester, where City and United accounted for 183 arrests, compared with only 13 arrests at Swansea and Norwich combined.
In my bones I feel that the very success of both Manchester clubs attracts the brainless thugs who comprise the biggest part of the racist community in the UK – most of them living far from Manchester.

But pictured above is a banner which was displayed throughout a a fixture between Spurs and Partizan Belgrade when they competed in a Europa League fixture last week.
Funny?
No, insulting.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
