Southgate on players taking the knee: 'They're making their stand'

  • Опубликовано: 9 дней назад

    Guardian Football

    Speaking before Sunday's warm-up game against Romania, Gareth Southgate said his side were more determined than ever to take the knee. The England manager added his players wouldn't be taking further questions on the matter as they had made their stance clear.
    The statement comes after England players were booed by a section of the crowd for taking the knee before their game with Austria on Wednesday.

Hey Southgate, the fans are the ones that pay you and the players’ salary. They’re taking a stand too by booing your ridiculous flavor of the month/year political statement that needs to be left out of sports altogether. Bugger off.

Southgate allows and promotes diving to gain a cheating advantage to aid England to win. As England manager this is extremely serious and disgraceful. it is also exclusively football, entirely within his remit. It disqualifies him from taking any moral high ground and rather identifies him as morally bankrupt.

How stupid is that ? Taking a knee or making a stand ? No wonder your team won nothing ! Get the tactics right mate! Fans pay to watch football, not watch your players “kneeling” to racism! Absolute dumb ! 💩🖕🏼

Haven’t they campaigned say no to racism for years,has that changed something?No ,kneeling is gonna achieve nothing,there’s no systemic racism,there are individuals who are racist and kneeling is not gonna stop their beliefs it’s like massaging a wooden leg,it’s only gonna create hostility towards the fans.

Then be prepared to lose support for the team Southgate. I will never support England again until they stop taking the knee. I will bet that many will still go and I am sure many will continue to boo this abhorrent behaviour by the over paid and out of touch of sport.

@Multiyumz And allow me to qualify. It is easy to say for anyone who has done their due diligence on BLM. The political ideology and aims of BLM are no secret and it should come as no surprise to anyone who has done their research that a great many people, of all shapes, sizes, creeds, and colours, find the politics of BLM objectionable.

Well sorry I disagree with him, BLM are a political movement and have stirred more disharmony amongst communities than any other movement. There are folks dying in communities because of gang violence that have been crying out for their help but they get nothing as all they want to do is attack the police and call for its defunding so as to further destabilise. THIS IS POLITICAL. It’s leaders are now millionaires so the Marxist plan is on course. Football players have always been brainless and selfish so carry on. I won’t be watching you d what you all do best in every tournament anyway. LOSE. Because you don’t care.

Southgate is clueless... Fans don't boo the knee because of criticism of black players, they're booing because the knee came from a Marxist far-left political movement which graffitied the Cenotaph and vandalised historical statues. Let the players take the knee, they have a right too. But they will of course face criticism. And finally, others will agree and disagree with this gesture, but as a society, we must ALL respect each other's opinions. But overall... COME ON ENGLAND!!

I support the statement ‘black lives matter’ as do all lives, but not what’s looked like support for the anarchist blm group. If the players wanted to show solidarity with their colleagues, they could just stand & bow their heads, I would support this move!

Yep. Black people make up around 3% of the English population, that equates to no more than one black player out of a squad of 26. They are hugely over-represented in football which is absolutely fine by me, but I'm struggling to see where the inequality is, if anything it's unequal on whites.

Are you completely unaware that they are a self confessed radical Marxist group who wish to dismantle the nuclear family and over throw the democratic system in their own words ?

@Chester Donnelly theres nothing political about this. have any of the players mentioned anything remotely to do with politics? Not being racist towards black people is not a political stance. Only people saying its political are angry, probably racist right wingers who are echoing the sentiments of their politicians because the right wings only strategy is to make people pissed off and afraid of things that arent actually political anyway
