FAO Yusuf - you’ve helped influence the biggest change in a Boro message board

Afternoon, pal. Firstly, may I say, I like the majority of true Boro fans abhor racism and are shocked and appalled when it happens to one of our own - namely you. It doesn’t matter what the motivator is - and jealousy is up there as being the worst.

What you have helped in achieving is the biggest purge of threads and posters on COB. Small consolation I know. But this has been actioned because of racism and paedo threads and comments left untouched.

please know the vast majority have your back and are delighted to have you amongst our ranks. Take care, fella. UTB

Shown a light on a very dark place, but he shouldn't have had to really.

I was disgusted to see the screenshots Yusuf posted on his Twitter a few days ago, but when the news of his new assignment broke, I felt it was depressingly predictable that someone, somewhere would say exactly those things. It's so sad that some people's reaction to a piece of news will always be clouded in negativity and prejudice. As a society we clearly have such a long way to go, and sometimes it seems that we can only travel at the pace of the slowest.

Thanks mate, very kind. The support on FMTTM has always been supportive these last few years. It means a lot. UTB

From my reading of COB over the years (never joined) is that most claimed it was a place for free speech that was moderated lightly. In fact it was mostly (not all) people that had been banned from here. Thus they had a stiffy on for Rob and the others running FMTTM, which gave them a shared coat hanger to put their aggression, racism, homophobia on. Lately, some real extremists joined and this led to an increase in offensive comments and it seems nobody was properly moderating the forum so things just got out of hand. Yusuf, they are a tiny minority and I am pleased that you are aware of this. UP THE BORO

I had to laugh at all the self congratulatory pats on the back on there after they'd managed not to post anything racist for a few hours.

Hear hear. I have read that board a few times over the years and always been staggered at some of the things that were written. A cesspit of scumbags. The very worst of society. I am glad it is getting purged and Yusuf deserves enormous credit for his part on it even though he should never have been subject to such rubbish.

Yusuf is a genuine lad, a very good Boro fan & what makes it more remarkable, apart from not been from the area, he's just as passionate as the best of us & when you take in to account the latter years of struggling we've had he's stuck with us & his smile & passion shines through & long may it continue

And still people will questions whether players should take a knee or there should be announcements about intolerance to racism from the football bodies.
I wonder what Twitter did to address the racism? I can probably guess and it will have been wholly underwhelming.

Keep up the good work Yusuf and try not to lose perspective, although I suspect it's easy to do just that, but it's just a loud and ignorant minority.

You know we are passionate fans Yusuf and we have taken you under our wings as a 'Boro boy now, freedom of the Riverside etc rather than the city! As I said before your weekly trek from London is worthy of the utmost respect. Those knuckle draggers and racists are scum and will never represent the 'Boro family. We are united, we are one big family, we are the 'Boro. UTB.
