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

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

'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.

Seems Gary Speed was one of four footballers who were coached by Barry Burrnell that have committed suicide .

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.
