  • Under 18's

    Haven't seen anything on here about the Under 18's who took a stand in a recent friendly in Spain against racial abuse. The captain went to Paul Furlong who manages the side and they left the pitch.

    Fair play to them!

    It's bad enough hearing racist abuse in a stadium of thousands, but an under 18 friendly.....how many would've been there?? Not that many so can only imagine it must've been a fair percentage of the crowd that were there. Bang out of order.

        Meanwhile, QPR co-owner Tony Fernandes says he is "proud" of the stance taken by his club.

        "Racism has no space in any of my thinking," he posted on Twitter.

        "What happened in Spain to my under-18 players is a disgrace. But what is worse is the response of Uefa, who just said they would inform the Spanish FA. They should take a much harder line.

        "It is brainless and frankly barbaric how a kid under 18 has to put up with this.

        "I'm so proud that our team walked off the pitch. Come on Uefa, start leading and start making a difference. Sport plays a huge part."
