Even Shearers getting his nappy in a twist now

"Shearer joined Wright for a powerful interview on behalf of the Premier League to discuss both their current experiences and instances from their playing days.

The recent renewed focus against racism prompted the Newcastle legend to recall a popular chant about Cunningham from his time on the terraces.

Cunningham spent two years on Tyneside after joining in 1985, and was regularly serenaded with his own song by supporters.

However, the racial undertones of the chant which was sung by 'thousands' is something Shearer can not understand almost 40 years on.

He told the Premier League: "When I went to watch football [at] Newcastle in the early eighties, when I was 12, 13, 14, we had a black centre-forward Tony Cunningham.

"And one of the songs the Gallowgate End used to sing was 'he's black, he's broon, he's playing for the Toon'.

"There were thousands [who] sang it. He acknowledged, he clapped, he smiled. That was his way of saying thanks, I guess. But I mean..."

I mean a) it was in a different era when being called black/fat/stupid/paddy/parky/streak a piss/Gyppo etc went with the territory
You didn't need 16 appointments with your therapist to get over it, you just shrugged it off and carried on
There were not (as Wrighty and the Kick it out brigade would have us believe) 50 odd thousand Racinst KKK members in the gallowgate.
The thing that annoyed me most was not Shearer being "Uncomfortable" with our behaviour 40 years ago. it was the fact that he still didn't have the balls to repeat the proper words which started with the letter "C" and rhymed not Br and rhymed [-X [-X [-X

No wonder the Big Fat Cockney B*stard has been spotted with a sickly grin from ear to ear over the last couple of days. It appears the US have just removed the Saudis from the "Piracy watchlist" (one of the main excuses the Prem were using to block the takeover) Couldn't have asked for better timing with the Prem having to respond to his legal challenge this Friday and Arbitration booked in for next month

Just seen this Tam .. too late im afraid as Chairman Swan has blown the budget for the up n coming L2 campaign on a position he thought most needed to be strengthened sadly not a striker ... we would all like to welcome Denise to the club , in her role in the South stand pie shop come August.

First teamer Mactee has jumped the Iron ship and moved to the codheads meaning at the moment Scunny officially could not field a first team due to lack of staff/players .. its seeming more n more difficult to get players to come to Scunthorpe :shock: .. which surprises me :^o

Sadly we are doomed .. with no budget , no players relegation into non league pretty much a cert.

DM
Claret n Blue all way thru .. Up the Iron
L2 Season 19/20 Codheads 0 Scunny 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2qrsItFUug
8 minutes is the point of lift off !!!!!!!
