And how can the football authorities have players taking the knee and calling for equality then go to a place like Qatar with its human rights record. It’s hypocritical, why didn’t Southgate speak out about this.Doubles (standards) all round chaps, £££’s
I do agree. Racism is rife in that part of the world but we seem to turn a blind eye

I've seen first hand how Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani workers are treated over there. It is outright racism. I'm really surprised that this has not been talked about more rather than the obvious corruption

Well said Sir. Hypocrisy of the highest order. The silence is deafening from the virtue signalers

That's what it's all about + 99% of people are happy to turn a blind eye to what's happening in the real world.

Of course. But I bet all of us are guilty to some degree.

Besides, even if we’re taking specifically about this World Cup, 99% who don’t agree with the goings on in the location and how people are treated will probably still end up watching, probably myself included.

Because players, managers etc who take the knee are total hypercyts & dont want to miss out on the show business, money, fame etc, as you say double standards, posters on here who bang on about Brexit & call people racist will happily switch on the TV because at the end of the day, it dosent affect them & anyway its only a football match & theyre not missing it for the world

Well said mate! There are many that would love to say the same (me included) but I doubt I will be able to ignore it

We can only dream and hope.
FIFA being bankrupt would benefit footfall immensely. eventually.
While FIFA , EUFA et al exist is is impossible to root out the inbred corruption.
I know it is a pipe dream but a fresh start is the only way.
Long live the revolution.
Revolution my Arris.

While the national football associations, ours included, continue to be driven by money you won't get any change in FIFA & UEFA.

It's these bodies that provide the representatives that make up the governing bodies. The hypocrisy lies here as much as anywhere else.

Nice to see a few bigots back together though, it's a while since there's been a gathering.

I haven't seen any fans defending Qatar getting the World Cup. On fmttm.com (as it was) there was post after post about the rights of the workers who have sadly died in their thousands now to build the stadia. I imagine every one of us against the World Cup being held in Qatar - I don't think fans are the enemy here. Not sure why people are attacking other supporters. Surely it is FIFA that should be the target.

Just imagine if a football forum, something so, so small & hardly heard of outside the Boro, started something that grew & grew

SAY NO TO QUTAR (y)
