The FA are not corrupt you say ?

A ONE GAME ban for Silva's racist post proves otherwise. Conveniently doled out AFTER their biggest game of the season.

To put it into context, that is significantly LESS than the punishment Elliott got for something that wasn't racist. And well short of the widely expected minimum 6 game ban.

Football ... doing its utmost to kick out racism

Well he was available for us, but they still lost So now he'll miss a tough game where he might have made the difference, here's hoping Chelsea get something from that game just to enforce the point

TBH we all kind of knew the "punishment" would be minimal, it was more of a case of ignorance than maliciousness so I'm glad they are sending him for education on it. I think one game is too short though, but if it had been 8 games or whatever we'd have had a large proportion of City fans defending the severity of it and they'd be backed up by a genuinely racist element, trying to give credence to it all.

I still can't for the life me understand how that sweet packaging can still be acceptable across Spain! People are up in arms about Bernardo posting it, but no one seems to bat an eyelid that it is acceptable throughout a whole country

Because Spain is still inherently racist

I know and sorry if it seemed like I was questioning you, it's just a bit depressing in the 21st century that a first world country can find that acceptable and the norm

Yeh I got some just to show people in the UK that such things still exist. Seemed perfectly acceptable for a number of products to have such logos.

Not sure what the complaints about VAR are ... if it was a foul for the free kick, in the first place, then it is a clear foul on Lovren.

Got very lucky when Zaha blazed over at the end though.

We will need to play better on Wednesday if we are to get the point we need.

Need more than a point don't we? If we draw then assuming Salzburg beat Genk then they can match our 10 points by beating us.so if they beat us by two goals we'd be out?

True ... but I was presuming we wouldn't lose to Salzburg . And as you say it also depends on how Salzburg do tonight - if they don't win then we are through regardless.

Or, we could just beat Napoli and guarantee finishing top of the group
