Do we need to take a knee over that? Or perhaps just encourage more black players to take up coaching? Which seems more sensible?

But is there a lack of representation?
I understand about 5% of the UK population are black therefore with the Premier League having one black manager this is proportionally inline. In 2021 there were 7 black managers across the 92 league clubs (i.e. approx. 8%).
The fact that there are a higher percentage of black players, maybe we should be looking to address why there is a lack of representation of white players

Seriously, if you want to talk about under representation in football, why are there so few Asian people involved at any level, considering there is double the numbers of Asians to blacks in the UK. And what about women in the men's game. Are they not just as capable to be managers/ coaches etc.?

Personally I have always hated the requirement to have quotas. In all circumstances the best qualified/ experienced should get the job regardless.

There isn't one. That is just self serving propaganda.

There is however, a massive disproportion of Black players.

As a White person, why should I be expected to care about the former, but at the same time be expected to be happy with the latter? It is a contradiction.

Adverts, voiceovers, dramas are now full of Black people. That is just the visible stuff.
There are people now not getting work simply because they are not Black. That is a pretty good definition of racism for me.

There is a bit of reality for you amongst all that media brainwashing.

Why bring up your own quote re. Paddy in Poland from last August? Has it been playing on your mind?

You seem to think there is an imbalance of black players in the side, chosen to reflect the image of the manager. Is that as a player or as a human being?
You seem to have implied that Connor Gallagher wouldn't be recruited as he is not black, as per a profiling agenda from 'senior management.'

Did I misinterpret what you deleted? If so, please excuse me. But I read it more than once and that seemed to be the gist.

Since the taking the knee debate is now over, I'm locking this thread, before it turns into a different debate altogether...
