    The story is just coming out. According to the mirror...

    One incident is said to have taken place at an adventure activity complex, Go Ape, in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
    Watching two African players struggling with a climbing frame, Beardsley allegedly quipped: “Why are you taking so long? Your lot should be good at this."

    Oh dear

    Why would any top former professional in that sort of position stand there and think, "Yeah, this is going to go down well. I should say this."

    You can't take articles like this as gospel but if true he sounds like a right stupid bully of a bloke.

    He's also supposedly accused some black players as being older than they've said they are.

    Even the name Go Ape sounds racist as feck.. wonder how many Black Men visit this facility? I suggest none..

    He has to be sacked surely!? if he doesn't Newcastle almost condone what he's done..

    These rich old white people need to realise black people are no longer their slaves but their equals. We are no longer living like the days of 12 Years of Slave.

    They were going to call it Go Orangutan but the government stepped in for fear of another Scottish independence referendum.

    Apes use their limbs to climb, and humans are Apes. 'Go Ape' is a pretty good name for a climbing facility.

    Tough one for @Rafateria. On one hand he played for Everton so he must of done it. Then again he played for Liverpool so he can't have.

    I find this hard to believe personally. I've met Beardsley more times than I can remember as he was closely linked with my ex-girlfriends sons School in Walker, and spent a lot of time with the sports teams. I haven't met many people that are well known but I can't imagine many that are as shy, unassuming and humble as Beardsley. He's very softly spoken and gracious and just doesn't seem the type at all to utter comments like this.

    If I remember right he was one of Digger Barnes best mates when he was going through all the Ape chanting and banana stuff too, so would take a monumental divergence of character to suddenly become a mouthy racist. There's definitely some I could easily believe to be like it, but PB would be the last I'd imagine. As for a bully, I don't think he'd be capable of bullying a timid puppy.

    If I had to take a guess, someone's bitter at something and looking for a compo claim and Beardsley is the easiest and most high profile target. I could be totally wrong, but it's like someone telling you Graham Norton is secretly a womaniser and top boy of the Service crew.

    Think he’ll get a length ban. Probably his chances of making the World Cup squad gone.

    This "he's got a black mate, so he can't be racist!" stuff that gets whipped out whenever discussions like this come up need to be brought to a swift end.

    Think he probably did say it, but it was most likely a moment of complete ignorance, rather than a display of his inner racist. We have all been there.
    He's stupid twat of a man to say anything like that to someone he is not close enough to banter with, and In my opinion that's all this is. Stupidity.

    I'm with you on this, nothing but complete ignorance on his part, if true.

    Fairly great consistency shown by Liverpool supporters that they always manage to write the worst post possible when it comes to football and racism.

    He’s a really decent person with many friends of just about every ethnicity.
    Report is speculation and if any comment was made it could well have been blown out of context. But let’s all beat him with the racist stick.
