I read the whole article. Quite incredible, and that from an 18 year old!! I think Ian Wright is absolutely correct when he also said that racism will never go away. It is absolutely disgusting when directed at anybody. You don't have to be black to suffer it of course but black people are probably targeted the most simply because they are visible. My own view on it is that people making racist remarks should be heavily punished but with no publicity attached to it. I think, and in a way Ian wright said as much, that social media was making it easy for people to make racist remarks. I would suggest that the continued publicity in the press regarding racism fuels it also. Give it no publicity and punish heavily those that do it.

Now I don't play these games on either the Sony or Microsoft consoles but surely if one of your players doesn't perform to your expectations wouldn't you simply drop him for the next game or transfer him and get a new player?

You can pick any team at any time, there'll be different game scenarios where you might be able to play with some legends in etc etc....but to be honest, it's the game or the person at fault if someone does something stupid in FIFA.

I love the game and play from time to time with mates but have never been a controller smasher or rage monster with it. To have a player **** up in a computer game and to go at them in person is just bizarre, let alone getting racist and abusive. Just signals of a nasty moron.

Don't get me wrong, it's ****ed up and frustrating when you're running with the ball as Messi or the like and someone like Tom Hundredstone is keeping up at pace. It does make you question everything, but I don't need to go and abuse Messi or anyone because of it. It's a computer game.

If he was using Ian Wright then it would be a Legend player which you either unpack or buy on the market which will have been costly. To unpack using free packs would have been very lucky so chances are he's one of the idiots who spaffs real money up the wall buying ingame currency only to find he's still shit at the game. Personally I haven't played Fifa since Fifa 18 when I realised I was actually shit at it.

So cyber hackers are holding my club to ransom. We offered them Phil Jones but apparently they want money instead.

Pfffft the Glazer family is just misunderstood by many. Sort of like the Sopranos who were also misunderstood. Just families trying to run a business.
