Precisely, although gay I would say has plenty of support.

Bald, fat, ginger, long haired (where's your caravan... Gyppo, Gyppo etc) get abused far far more.

Also players such as Beckham, Rooney etc have endured tremendous amounts of abuse throughout their entire career. Nothing said.

Yet one random old man at Chelsea MAY have said something nasty to Raheem Sterling and all hell breaks loose.

The difference is, there isn't money to be made in the other examples.. businesses to run etc.

Surprised no mention from the Geordie crew of the £40 million record signing?

Hmmm. Been after him for about 2-3 years, but Rafa thought the release figure of £34M would be better spread across the team. However the club went after him when Rafa( Clause in his contract) left, and we now appear to have given them £40M, and with a record of only 7 goals last season in about 25 games. Is he worth that when nobody else has wanted him for those 3 years, except when he went out on a 2 year loan deal. WE are not overwhelmed about the signing and shocked he has actually spent £40M on one player who is not in the top frame of players. That's £40 M out of the supposed £91M available and probably means less new players coming into the club. WE need another striker, a midfielder. two backs and a winger, but we will not get then now. On the plus side, it appears that Hayden has agreed to stay for the season, so that eases the midfielder situation with KI, Shelvey, Longstaff, Hayden  still on the books. Obviously Bruce has a different list to the one that Rafa had, so we can expect to see some good Championship players being brought in rather that established stars.

Keep the faith.

Raul Jimenez was a bit part player at Benfica before coming to Wolves.

Sometimes it's just about being given the right opportunity in the right environment and having a great coach behind you. Oh wait...

If it was only because he is ginger.... Lennon is probably the most abused player/manager in U.K. football. Probably lost count of the number of death threats he has received over the past 15 years or more

Exactly, which is my point.

The 'movement' should be about eradicating abuse from the game.

Skin color should have absolutely nothing to do with it... unless your agenda is to drive racism.

Perhaps he is just an obnoxious person. There is some merit in that.

That explains Gazza's death threats then. I guess it is ok to send a death threat to an obnoxious player.....

James McClean is another with a similar background that has received at least one death threat

Another obnoxious person. I must have missed the part where I allegedly said it was OK to send death threats, but if you think it's OK to send a death threat, so be it.  :rolleyes:

I was annoyed with our game against United earlier only being on MUTV. Seen the highlights. Looks like a few tackles went in. Let them have that. When the real stuff starts the Spurs will walk the PL. COYS.
