    Valid point and a tough one to address but it depends on the context she was taught it. My kids have RE and have been taught about all religions but none exclusively. I have told both of mine I don't follow a religion but it is fine if they want to.

    Gave up his title though, sent his kids to a normal comprehensive when there was a grammar down the road( That I went to). Styaed true to his principles.

    Jenkins was a turncoat.

    How's Thornberry posh? Went to a bog standard secondary modern and went to the University of Kent!!!

    She got her kids into Dame Alice Owen's but fecking hell, I know a whole bunch of parents working their socks off to get their kids into selective schools

    I don't really have much of an opinion either way on the Park chant myself, but lets just say that he became our best player, a superstar like Ronaldo and the chant carried on. For some reason I get the feeling a lot of people who are alright with it would start requesting that we change it and that it doesn't do him justice.

    I wish I was lying or there's something I missed but unfortunately I actually witnessed it. But I can see why you think it's bollocks because if someone told me that I wouldn't believe it either.

    A local one in NI.

    Roy Cole was a Linfield manager and our most successful manager. A number of years passed he became manager of our arch enemies Glentoran. (became their most successful manager ever)

    The song that he would hear is.

    Roy Cole, theirs only one Roy Coyle,
    He takes it up the rear
    Because he's a f**king queer.

    Not in best taste and would certainly get bad press in today's era.

    You're a proper 'ard man, and do be letting anyone tell you differently. because you're liable to have a meltdown
    It's literally using Torres' supposed homosexuality to mock him, it's textbook homophobia.

    Theres nothing more sad or pathetic than these chants. Grown men singing about the size of someones dick because he happens to be black or any other stupid stereotype is just so ignorant .

    People who do this are the same as the brain dead morons that try and pick a fight in the pub asking what are you looking at etc .

    At least those idiots just can't handle a drink what's the excuse to act like a neanderthal just because you go to a match ?

    As for "just banter " that is used in an attempt to excuse any racial bigoted or ignorant behaviour going . If the only way to defend doing something stupid is it's just banter or only a bit of fun then you are being a moron

    Most chants are fine tbh. Yeah some might be making fun of people or using stereotypes or whatever else, but it's all in jest and most of the time used to rile up the opposition which is fine.

    The chants that should be off limits is pretty much the same as jokes that should be off limits. You don't make fun of people who have suffered a personal tragedy or something like that, whereas if you're Harry Maguire, then you can bet all his mates would have told him he has a big head.

    I know it's not the right thread and probably I am wrong, but I haven't heard of chants for Pogba or Rashford

    what a ridiculous statement.
    I sang to the Lukakau chant- i have never had a fight in the pub. Nor do i dislike anybody based on their ethnicity.
    If you don't see the funny side of 'scoring all our goals, bell end by his toes' and instead you see it as anything other than banter then its people like you that are taking the fun out of this country. No joke is below you, Live and let live, and don't take life to seriously and you might just have some fun.

    She's out of touch with blue collars, as are lots of the Labour hierarchy

    Is Dame Alice Owen's the same school that Abbot, Milne, Chakrabarti sent their children too - or an even more expensive one ??


    Their money, of course, so they can spend it how they want....

    It's the 'there's a Tavern in your town...' chant.

    "We're gonna hang Dalglish from the highest f***ing tree! So all you Scouse bastards can see! He's a c**t!"

    Obviously it's a very old chant... not the type of one that would be created nowadays.

    Point is, you can have a drink and a laugh. You don't have to indulge in stupid chants to do it.

    If that's what floats your boat, then join in. If not,feel free to abstain

    can anyone remember the old "who can rob your houses" chant?

    classic IMO, but would fall in the unacceptable category for sure

    Maybe, just maybe, for some, knowing that the idea that black men have big willies stems from the myth that black men were sex-crazed brutes looking to rape innocent white women kind of kills their ability to see it as harmless banter. Just a thought.

    Whatever you need to tell yourself to defend racist chants, I guess.
