Technically it started 3 weeks ago with the European games and two with the Scottish League Cups games 😉

Burnley look screwed for their second leg tomorrow, have had to ask for special dispensation to sign a keeper with Heaton and Pope both injured

Looks like Burnley will go through now, 4-2 on aggregate but it's a grim result. I see they've got Anders Lindegaard in goal, must have got an emergency signing for him.

He was on their books already but was 3rd choice behind Pope and Heaton, he'd had a minor injury which made him a doubt hence why they wanted dispensation just incase he wasn't fit to play

From the BBC:

Barkley's bright start
Dion Dublin
Ex-Aston Villa striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"I like the look of Ross Barkley at the moment. He's trying to dictate the play and create the spaces for Chelsea to play in.

He has lots of talent, he just needs game time and for somebody to trust in him - to tell him to go out and just play."


------------------------------

What a load of cliched nonsense. He had game time and someone who basically told him to "go play" already in Martinez. What he likely needs is some coaching.

Rather on his own here. Fabregas hasn’t got the legs anymore and Barkley is just sort of running around not affecting anything.

Martinez was onto something playing him out on the right of a front three.

Was Koeman who played him there mainly in the second half of 16/17.

RM did use him somewhere like that in that 3-0, no subs loss at Southampton, when we also had Etoío and Naismith all stood in the same 10 yards of space in the middle so it was quite hard to see who was where :eh:

This will be a big test for him as @GLewis (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=258) posted yesterday, his teams play a very high tempo game and it will be interesting to see if they can maintain that through a very long and tough season.

I concur would be great to see Leeds back in the Premier League, as they have a fantastic support and would rekindle some old rivalries.

.............................I tend to agree  but they haven't even made the play-offs since they came back up from League One. It's quite bewildering when you think about small town teams like Bournemouth ,Brighton ,Watford and Huddersfield have come up.
I can remember the 4-4 at Goodison when Leeds were a team to be feared and then how far they declinedl in a few seasons when Steve Watson got his hat trick.

He's injured I think? Didn't he come back with a stomach injury from the world cup and club weren't happy that he'd kept playing with the injury?

One of the side effects of (1) an end-season playoff tournament for the champion based on regular season finish and (2) no promotion/relegation. DC United were and still are bottom of the Eastern Conference, and Minnesota would have been 3 points out of the playoff positions had they scored from that. I'm of the opinion that, in addition to MLS being a much lower standard than even the Championship in England, the lack of pro/rel eliminates much of the barrier for risk-taking when you're a below-average side for the league. You're even incentivized to do so in a way, as clubs get better placement in the annual college draft for finishing at the bottom.

DC also have at least 3 games in hand against those above. No idea how that happened, but they've only played 20 times this season. They win 3 games, they're up to 5th ahead of the Union.

Rodgers should've left, there is a bell curve when you're managing in Scotland I feel whereby you can initially do yourself some good picking up trophies but after a while there are diminishing returns and ultimately you're likely going to be fighting a losing battle. The only real respect comes in Europe and that's always going to be a bit of a roll of the dice.

The more domestic success he has too actually only serves to remind that it's a one horse race. A few on the bounce is understandable but when you're aiming for double digits back to back or whatever it is even that success looks a bit diminished.

I think Pep, will alter their style of play to utilise players like Mahrez, Silva and Sterling to cover De Bruyne's absence. He will be a big miss but they do have lots of good players who can fulfil a role. Might also give Phil Foden a bit more time on the pitch for them.

Aguero/Sterling/Sane as front 3 (alternating with Jesus/Mahrez)

Bernardo Silva is more of a number 10 anyway. He's just been accommodated out wide for now, so that he gets some game time. Also, they've got Foden, Gundogan, David Silva, Sane could probably play in the middle.

Think they'll be fine.

Burnley playing their way through Europe one 0-0 at a time.

While I didn't appreciate the Allardyce appointment, I'm really glad we didn't go for Dyche as that would've had to be longer term you'd imagine and I don't think I could've taken that, even if it certainly can be enough to get results.

Vardy sent off for a foul similar, and likely worse, than Jagielka's. Also against Wolves, though Wolves couldn't come back from 2-0 down away from home.

Means Vardy misses Southampton away, their cup match, and home to Liverpool. Of course he would.

Love watching the classless mourinho getting upset and then talking about class

And what's he even wittering on about? Like if he had a point, whether I agreed or not, I'd think 'I can see what he's trying to say'.

City and Guardiola are very into the whole 'open the doors, let the cameras in, I'll show you how we make players better' approach. Mourinho's much more old school 'the manager is the dictator, and I'll control the narrative and play mind games if I need to' approach.

Mourinho would never let the cameras into the club in any capacity, because he wants to hide behind smoke and mirrors. He doesn't want to demystify the process. He wants people to believe he's an all powerful sorcerer who controls all aspects. Again, very old-school almost Fergie-esque approach.

Don't get me wrong Guardiola's certainly got an ego, and he revels in his image as the forward thinking hipster, and plays upto it to some extent. I just prefer his style of management and obviously, his football. He's taken our entire league forward a level or two in the post-Fergie era, along with some other managers (Conte, Klopp).

Too early to tell on Arsenal, they've had two crappy fixtures with a new manager. They've an easy run now and I expect them to be looking competitive soon enough. I still rate Emery as a manager too. That said, are they vulnerable...sure.

Unless Spurs have some injury issues, they're still solid top 4/5.

Man United...look a mess in this game but who knows. Vulnerable again though. However, they could easily fire Mourinho and get in Pochettino or Zidane perhaps and turn it all around pretty quickly.

Despite all that the door is slightly ajar but it would take us getting sorted defensively speaking pretty quickly.

It'd be typical Mourinho to beat Spurs tomorrow and if he does the media will likely lose interest for a bit.

I think his position is getting a bit untenable though. They haven't really backed the players he wanted in this summer and that usually only means one thing.

I still think it'd be smart for them to get in Pochettino. It'd likely improve the type of football they were playing to appease the fans and destabilize one of their top 4 contenders in the process.

You weren't necessarily wrong back then though.

It seems very much like he's changed. Before he went to Madrid, he engineered these conflicts deliberately, and cultivated the myth of his own greatness as a tool to build his team, but he would (metaphorically) wink out at the audience from time to time.

Something seems to have broken in him, or he believed his own hype, but he now looks genuinely bitter all the time.

That said, the Wolves goal and the penalty that shouldíve been against Silva is stuff that shouldíve made the game very different.

Still kind of annoyed with the fawning over Wolves too. They were decent in the first half, albeit most of their best chances cane from Man City shoddy passing but sat back nearly the whole second half.

They did have him out for a stretch last season too. I think the bigger issue was Man City don't look quite up and running yet, Guardiola is rotating a lot and they're just not quite clicking to the extent they were last season. That and the poor decisions today.

Fulham leading against Burnley. Some squads just aren't capable of playing PL and EL, much like ours was not last time out.

For us I'd hope that another window or two with Brands given the problems he's tried to address and I think we'd actually look capable of playing in multiple competitions.

EDIT: :) Burnley making me eat my words 1-1 now.

DOUBLE EDIT: 3-1 Fulham :) I was right all along.

TRIPLE EDIT: 3-2 Never mind.

QUADRUPLE EDIT: finished 4-2. Joe Hart continuing his West Ham form

We still had normal results when we were in the EL.

We lost a lot because we were playing the better teams mainly.

Most of the teams that struggle with Europe and the PL are teams that were rubbish the year before they qualified and they naturally return to a lesser level.

What an awful, awful game. Two horrid calls cancel each other out, fortunately. And VAR could have resolved both of them.

The result was probably fair, mind, as Newcastle didn't really try to keep the ball. If Yedlin doesn't try to cut that ball out, Barkley taps it in. For me it's justice done as his uncalled elbow right before the assist to equalize balances out the own goal.

Man United are too much of a rebuilding job that he's already spent the last few years doing.

They need to sack Woodward and get something going like we've got with Silva and Brands. Eddie Howe is the sort of manager they need to go for but they'll end up with Zidane who is all about short term success.

Man United will probably have to make a move long before end of the season though. Then it becomes a question of would he miss out and that seat gets filled for another couple of years by say a Zidane?

They do need different people behind the scenes absolutely but that probably would happen in the summer. I think they have made noises about getting Monchi from Roma.

I'm sure it'd not be an easy decision for Pochettino, but the PL isn't equal. The resources aren't equal. That'll be the case at Spurs for a long time yet with their stadium costs. If he wants to really compete every season for the title, he's a far better chance doing it with the resources he'd have at Man United.

Eh, he's at the top of his field and I'm sure he's ambitious to win something. Same reason he went from Southampton to Spurs. He will get a job at one of the top, top teams (and all that entails) it's surely only a matter of time now. Spurs as well as they're doing aren't in that global elite category.

PSG, Real Madrid, Manchester United. Probably the only 3 teams he could move to next.

I just think itís far too early to draw any conclusions.

They beat West Ham at home last season. They also beat Crystal Palace away last season. They beat Brighton at home last season and they beat Leicester away last season. So if they hold today then theyíll have only repeated last seasonís results.

Theyíll probably finish in 2nd and clearly have a better team than last year but theyíve got plenty to prove before thinking they can overcome that huge gap behind Man City last season, a season they finished 4th.

Rashford was pretty much hacked down. The hacker got a yellow, Rashford the red of course.

I think VAR will help sort many of these issues out but the victim player has to learn to keep their cool and the technology will hopefully see the instigator get punished before it gets out of hand.

But I get why both Richarlison and Rashford did what they did. Perhaps all involved should get a red?

Yeah, it's not too bad we've some decent young players coming though. Ironic that Naismith only got brought in because Oli McBurnie withdrew. Keepers are alright but getting on a bit, obviously Tierney and Robertson are two of the bigger names in defence, I liked the look of Souter and O'Donnell as well. I'm a fan of Ryan Fraser but he was injured tonight, quite like John McGinn too, he put in a good shift tonight as did Callum McGregor who could have scored at least three.

We're short up front, I don't think Russell should have started ahead of Griffiths and Naismith's getting on, other than that we've no real out and out strikers. We don't have many goalscoring midfielders either so it's no wonder we're struggling for goals.

We're getting back to having a Scottish core now as well rather than made up of players playing through parents or grand parents, not that it's necessarily a bad thing but you don't want a squad majority like that which it was starting to head towards for a while.

All right I agree Spurs must win today, my original comment was off the cuff but I would bet you a £100 virtual pounds that we are within six points max come the end of season.

Their recruitment policies mixed with their stadium issues might finally be catching up with them.

They were good versus Man Utd, but then again Man Utd were/are struggling too.

That said, Liverpool clearly in great form so itís hard to judge teams against them right now. As it was to judge Arsenal when they played Man City then Chelsea away.

A struggling Spurs would be good for us (potentially) if we can get our shit together.

Hope so mate, but Liverpool's defence is immeasurably better than it was (probably best in the league now), and their front 3 aren't even in decent form yet, and they've won every game, including Palace and Spurs away.

Itís going to depend on whether theyíve got the ability to keep this level up over a season. I think theyíll likely stay top until they play Man City and Iíd not be surprised to see them beat Man City at home (think they play them at home first).

I just checked and City finished 3rd after winning the first six matches including Man United away.

They're a very good side and they'll finish in the top 2 this season (Unless Chelsea carry doing well under Sarri).

No, quite the opposite. You're confusing me with someone else. I've never said it before this year. I've always talked panickers out of it, in fact. But this year, I think it's entirely possible, if you look at it logically and take prejudice and bias out of it.

An injury to Van Dijk is the main thing I could see scuppering them.

Thatís all on PSG that, both Neymar and Mbappe had chances to get rid of it and dicked about a few yards outside their own penalty area in extra time.

Barkley just seems to be playing very safe, pretty much all the time. His best attribute was driving forward with the ball, taking a risk and it seems like he's lost that or it has been kinda coached out of him.

He's becoming another who is happy to retain the ball and likes to play the safe pass far too often.

Many of their attacking players like Pogba and Martial strolling around, not tracking back need to have a word with themselves too. Maybe theyíre just being half hearted to push Mourinho out, but that is still shitty behaviour.

Then they went on an awful run losing 3 on the bounce and weíre seeing now theyíre not nearly as strong as that result suggested.

West Ham wonít care for sure, neither would I if we got this kinda result, but this is just another half decently organized team having a pretty comfortable time versus Man United this season.

Derby played them off the park at Old Trafford the other day for goodness sake. Players not interested, manager lost the plot, whatever the reason this is a Man United side that at best look midtable-ish at the moment.

Reminds me so much of us and our squad as put together by Koeman and Walsh. Just more expensively put together. Paid over the odds for a lot of slightly above average players.

They do have some world class quality in there (such as De Gea) so they can pick up points regardless at times, but far more players that youíd think wouldnít get a move to any other top side. Their defence in particular is shockingly neglected at this point.

Mourinho is a problem as his attitude is now to throw everyone under the bus, so heíll have to end up going but they need to have a real clearout much like Brands is attempting with us.

Hiring a sporting director (as they are in the process of doing) would probably help a lot.

We'll see but theyíre not the favorites in that game for me, until they can prove they can get over that mental block. Man City havenít even been particularly good this season, but there are a lot of teams that will roll over for them in the PL (or just arenít very good compared to a Man City team in average form), so theyíre still top.

Right now the only test for the top 3 teams seems to be against each other.

How many times does it need to be shown that the officials are often incapable though? See our game vs Arsenal for an even more blatant example...and it that situation pretty much all of them were even standing still and they still got it wrong.

West Ham's first goal was offside too this weekend, it's basically a small handful of incidents (quite possibly game changing) every round of fixtures as it stands.

That said, I'm not as blinkered as I once was in terms of his issues. He needed to kick on from where he was with us, but clearly right now he's regressing.

He looks absolutely a million miles away from any other top striker in the league.

Personally think he looks a lot bigger than he was with us, it may have hampered his already suspect movement. Seems to miss a lot more chances for United than he did for us, I don't know why.

Perhaps. It's just toxic there right now and confidence for a player, let alone a striker is so paramount even for professionals at this level.

Absolutely no way that Ronaldo is a better all round player than Messi.

People notice if Ronaldo scores, which he does incredibly frequently and in massive games too.

But Messi has to play well in a much more rounded sense.

If you werenít bothered about whether the ball went in the net or not, who would you rather watch?

(And thatís not forgetting that Messi actually scores bucketloads too)

Everyone going on about West Ham after they beat Man Utd. Then they lose this game.

With all the money spent, 3/4s of the PL teams seem more hopelessly adrift than ever. It feels like folly to point at any of the teams in that larger group right now and say they're progressing. Pundits will highlight West Ham one week, Wolves or Bournemouth another and say they're look at them, they're improving for one silly reason or another and maybe they'll be the ones to break into...yada yada yada. Always seems to end with relative mediocrity over the course of a season.

Whilst theyíre by no means challenging for the top 4, I think the standard of team coming up into the premier league has gotten better and itís representative of more of the league actually trying to play football and win games. Iíd much sooner watch Fulham or Wolves than the likes of Stoke or Huddersfield.

Hopefully we arenít too far away from the Allardyce style of football dying out in the premier league, it will be good for the league overall.

Youíre right though, the gap between the top 6 and the rest of the league doesnít seem like itíll close anytime soon.

Liverpool aren't playing particularly well, and haven't been anywhere near last season's levels. The difference has been that their defence is much better, so they've churned out results. They will need to improve massively to beat City (which isn't beyond the realms of possibility), but their current levels of performance will see them lose comfortably today.

We've got to play them at anfield soon. Their defenders are the typical modern spoilers. Their hands are everywhere on opponents, especially in their penalty area. And Lovren is a particularly dirty player. Lets hope we don't end up with loads of walking wounded. They didn't look that good today, either.

Good on him, I think he's in the perfect place for this point in his career though. The games aren't as intense and he's still got the footballing brain but his problem in the PL was his legs weren't really up to the pace anymore. There is decent quality in the MLS but keepers over there aren't the best. I think a PL keeper gets to that free kick most times, it wasn't so unsaveable as he made it look.

Probably great from him personally there too, he must get very little attention in DC compared to over here as most people wouldn't know who he was.

Agreed, but like Pogba, if they put in as good a performance on the pitch as they do on social media it wouldn't be too bad.

For the fees paid they aren't performing in the big games, so for me they are not elite players, but they both knock around with a swagger as if they are.

Pogba there blaming lindelof when it was his fault. They need to turn up in big games before mouthing off as if they have a god given right that Juventus will just come in for them if things don't go to plan.

It wouldíve been bad to miss that but there were plenty of bodies flying around so given the timing/situation it was a tidy finish.

Anyhow, Phil Neville is a pretty awful co-commentator. For an ex player he brings very little insight, he states the obvious or gives silly platitudes. Wouldnít pay attention to anything he has to say.

Makes me wonder if this sort of stuff is paving the way for an exit. I believe he turned them down in the summer as he'd literally just signed a new deal at Spurs, but if they come back would he hold firm I wonder especially given the Spurs board not backing him financially?

Heís by no means garbage but heís not outgrown the problems he had when he played for us either (all mental, physically and technically heís superb).

Fulham really have kinda gone under the radar in terms of potentially being the worst side in the league.

Wouldn't be surprised if Big Sam roles up there soon or Moyes perhaps as they have some talent but the way they play seems to just leak goals. Some semblance of organization might save them.

Watching the Sheffield derby here.

Sheffield United play a system Iíve never seen before and it is very impressive to watch.

They basically have their full back cutting inside on an underlap, with two centre halves on the overlap drilling crosses in.

Itís a five at the back system so they still have enough bodies back to stop a counter whilst creating massive overloads in the opposition half.

Really interesting to watch.

Seven points separating the top ten I think. Anyone in the top 12-14 capable of taking points off teams above them. Norwich v Millwall today probably summed it up, a top team needing a 97th minute winner to beat a club hovering above the relegation zone 4-3.

Which is also a bit silly. They'll all get in the Euros anyway.

I should've said too much competitive football. It's silly. They're in the middle of a super intense Prem season, just finished a World Cup, some without any real break, and then thrown into this nonsensical, meaningless format.

You are correct. The 'finals' stage of this competition will take place in June around the same time that every other European team will be starting their traditional euro 2020 qualifiers.


The 4 teams that make the finals (or rather the 3 that don't win it) will then be put into euro 2020 qualifying groups that have 1 less team in them, and therefore play no extra games.

Top management by Koeman....

...the Dutch implemented a tactical switch - that manager Ronald Koeman was originally unaware of - with Quincy Promes' 85th-minute goal initiating their revival.

The Dutch boss passed on hand-written directions, penned by his back-up team, to full-back Kenny Tete which prompted Van Dijk to press forward.

"I got a note from Dwight Lodeweges and Kees van Wonderen," Koeman said.

"When we were 2-0 down they [my assistants] asked me if we should change things around and I said 'yes'."

"Next thing I knew I had the note. So I gave it to Kenny. And in the end it's fantastic that the equaliser came from the guy who was told on the note to push up front."

You look at how bad Newcastle's start to the season has been and how everyone's saying how poor they've been yet if they beat West Ham they'll only be a point behind Wolves and Newcastle are now getting a run going whereas Wolves are in a run that they're really struggling to turn around.

Wolves didnít look like they had many goals in them at the start of the season.

The had not many shots in their early run but were seemingly solid.

Defensive performances have regressed to what you might expect with Championship defenders and a midfield that will be good with the ball but will come under physical pressure without it.

Exactly the same as Jags v Wolves.  And i'm still none the wiser as to whether that should have been a foul.  If youre a defender and you play the ball cleanly it shouldn't be your fault if the opponent then puts their foot in the way of the tackling leg after the fact.

Yeah, always a little concerning when they pick a weakened side, particularly away from home. Still good, but not as convincing. Not sure this team has the same ability to score as they're already missing De Bruyne, then you take out Aguero and Sterling too.

Took his goal well but when De Breuyne is back it's hard to see how he gets in that side, especially with Sterling and Sane.

He isn't shit like don't get me wrong but dont think he is at this elite level.

Relax.

They could quite possibly go into the New Year without losing a game in the PL. While I don't think they're the best team, clearly the longer they stay in the mix much as Leicester did they're giving themselves a shot and if Man City's focus shifts to the CL later in the season it becomes even more of an issue.

Any other team who were in this position (say a Man United) we'd think they were in the mix. Then just add to it the luck they've been getting...against us last minute with the freak goal, Man City's missed penalty in the last minute, Last minute goal versus Chelsea, goal ruled out vs Fulham they go and score 30 seconds later, offside goal today, etc etc etc. Oh and Kevin De Bruyne out, Aguero out again (there is a big falloff in quality to Gabriel Jesus)...all this could add up.

Not saying Man City aren't favourites, but I'm personally not going to relax until Man City are double digit points above them, and I doubt that'll happen anytime soon sadly.

Hopefully that will be enough for the players to start looking elsewhere if clubs come in for their big players.

Mourinho always does them. 10 men behind the ball and a 0-0.

Tbf that suggests they’re not quite as good as their league position and things will catch up with them.

Whereas City are well worth their tally this season. Even two of their dropped points was down to an offside/handball goal at Wolves as well.

I thought he was offside from Aubameyang's flick but the ref played advantage because the opposition had possession, so when that Ďadvantageí didnít end up being one he pulled it back.

He was offside, but he hadn't interfered with play yet...so they didn't raise the flag. Surely the second phase rule comes in when the defender has clear control of the ball? It's then a horrendous back pass that plays Lacazette in.

The big miss here is Aguero. They have enough talent to cover De Bruyne, at least against most of the teams in the league. Most of their goalscorers are not as reliable as Aguero though and need multiple chances to score, which in fairness they often get in this team but against the better teams you may only get a couple of good chances.

No idea why people think that Aguero is reliable, he scores because his movement is so good that he gets multiple good chances per game.

Even if you donít rate him, simple fact is heís the best they have.

Also if you think his ratio is crap, how about the rest of them aka Sterling (who I rate but if youíre saying Aguero is 1 in 4 he must be 1 in 10) or Gabriel Jesus?

I didn't think that was a foul at all - but I'm watching on an extremely small screen. The replay didn't look like he'd touched him either but I could be wrong. Giving a foul on the GK after he fell into his own player too

Nah, he went studs up right through his ankle, easily a yellow. At first I thought there was nothing in it either, but seeing the replay it looked pretty bad.

They've looked ok, not quite at their uber level of previous years though. Spurs were actually in the first game against them at Wembley.

I haven't seen Dortmund yet, Lyon have impressed but younger teams like that tend to crumble in the big European nights.

Sadly, I think Liverpool have a good chance against most of the possible teams. I'd even fancy Spurs against a lot of them.

Could see Mourinho parking the bus a lot and being able to go far in the competition too.

Yeah the English teams could do something this year but Barcelona the team to beat for me. Spurs were always on a string at Wembley imo.

Dortmund look class but theyíd go out 5-4 in the last minute at Anfield or something.

Nothing like a mass overreaction from BT Sport is there. Fletcher had that line queued right up when the keeper made that save last night.

Come into work this morning and you'd think he'd ended homelessness the way people are acting. Wasn't even a great save, wants shooting if he doesn't make that.

Anyway, glad to see them through - tired legs in the league, don't want them playing their reserves in the Europa while City go on both fronts.

Hope they get to the final and lose again, best feeling ever watching all the flags get roped in.

Yeah, plus in this case they're playing good opposition in Hoffenheim.

Also their injuries aren't just 2 or 3 random players they're really the spine of the team Ageuro, Fernandinho, Silva, De Bruyne. When you take out players in really key positions, or who are used to working together in a unit it becomes a bigger issue.

Anyhow, they are back to 1-1 now, Hoffenheim look dangerous though.

I hate that it's been built up to the rivalry it is, it's all been carefully media driven. I know there's always been a bit of a rivalry there but it's been hugely exaggerated over the Premier League years and built up more by the media and kopites as United closed in on Liverpool's record of league titles. It's more a rivalry on paper than on the pitch, Liverpool have barely got close to United over the majority of the Premier League and even during United's recent poorer times they've not exactly capitalised on it.

For a company that forgets football existed before the Premier League it's laughable that Sky can bill one club with 13 Premier League titles and one club with zero amd no titles in nearly 30 years as the biggest rivalry in football. People forget that Leeds and United was a far bigger rivalry in the past, even now they still hate each other.

I was concerned after the Man City missed penalty, but it's just too ridiculous now. That list isn't even near to the lot either. Offside goals given to help break the deadlock vs a stubborn side, goal ruled out for the opposition, then they score 60 seconds later, etc etc.

I’d wager they’ll both get the same return from those results and then they play each other with the chance for the shite to go four points clear. Considering how bad City are against them then it’ll happen.

1 isn't it with a shit goal difference

Goal difference isn't that far apart. Only 8 separates them, when both teams can score 4 a game, that's not much.

Also, to expect UEFA, FIFA, the FA, or Football as a sport in general to fix the problem of racism is a bit naive.

"Racism in football" is such a weird statement. It's not racism in football. It's just racism.

Also, to expect UEFA, FIFA, the FA, or Football as a sport in general to fix the problem of racism is a bit naive.

I think the term has come about because the majority of fans had thought we'd move on from the dark days of the 80's when bananas were thrown at black players. And this was partly thanks to the hard work of clubs and initiatives like Kick it Out.

Of course even the most sheltered of fan would readily admit that there still was issues, but the extent of those has been highlighted by recent events, seemingly fuelled by the political climate.

So "racism in football" has come to exist as it a microcosm of society in many respects, that people can relate to. Of course it's just racism at the end of the day, but if an issue is too big people will shy away from tackling it.

Climates at football grounds can be changed, clubs, the FA and so on have the power to do that. I don't think it's naive to put an onus on the governing bodies to create a standard that clubs live by. Surely the goal is to change the culture within football that in turn leads to a cultural shift in society. Football has the power to do this, such is its influence (especially in the UK where it's a religion).
