Some proper old-school racist language in there.  Gotta say though that 'mango-muncher' is a new one on me

Fair play to Chelsea though for not trying to cover it up.

Have to read it again when I get a mo. Thought they did?

'Mango muncher' will be all over Twitter surely by now!

Having not lived here at the time, that piece taught me quite a few new words. (To avoid.)

Sure, originally under Bates they did. But then:

Quote
Rix, then the youth-team coach, is named along with Gwyn Williams, a prominent figure at Stamford Bridge for more than 25 years, in a case that contains such serious allegations Chelsea felt compelled to notify the Football Association and the police were brought in. The police decided after a seven-month investigation there was insufficient evidence to take any action but Chelsea have launched their own inquiry and the FA’s safeguarding team have so far interviewed two of the players. Chelsea have also offered in-house counselling to at least one of the players.

Thanks man, but same old shit-they knew alright. Reminded me somewhat of the secondary school/jail I went to reading that. Horrible bastards some of them teachers/coaches/wardens etc etc.

Hope the lads who suffered through that shit get justice.

Maybe cos I live where he is from I assume its common knowledge

As soon as his death happened this was thrown out as a reason

The court case is ongoing and one of the witnesses (another victim) mentioned in today's hearing that he tried to contact Speed's parents after his suicide to tell them what had happened.

That's why.

'Crewe Alexandra were advised by the police to sever their ties with Barry Bennell but continued to employ him for a number of years despite being warned they should “move him on”, the Football Association’s independent inquiry into the sexual-abuse scandal has been told.

According to evidence seen by the Guardian, the club’s then chairman, Norman Rowlinson, decided to consult the police after he and other directors were warned in the late‑1980s that there had been a specific complaint about their youth-team coach.


Barry Bennell branded ‘sheer evil’ as he is sentenced to 30 years

Rowlinson, who died in 2006, is said to have been so concerned during a specially convened meeting of Crewe’s directors that he broke off from their talks to make a telephone call before returning to explain that he had asked the police to run a check on Bennell. Crewe had been warned they were employing a possible paedophile, the inquiry has been told, and Rowlinson is said to have told his colleagues: “I’ve just spoken to the chief superintendent. They’ve got nothing on him but suggest that we move him on.”

Bennell was employed until 1992 when there are contrasting reports about why he left Gresty Road. Crewe’s account is that it was because of football-related reasons.' Guardian

Unbelievable.

The noose is tightening around one or two more within the club.
Almost certainly more to come out and if victims go for compensation is it possible this could bring down the whole club?
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.
