Can I just say that under no circumstances is racial abuse, or for that manner any verbal abuse acceptable. Apparently jesse lingard was subjected to such last night by some 'manchester united' supporters. I don't rate lingard, don't think he's good enough and should be moved on but how about we leave it at that rather than acting like complete prats and abusing him consistently in public.

that's the problem with modern society, thanks to social media everybody thinks they have the right to spout whatever they want to whomever they want. he's a united player, he wears the shirt so please support him whether you think he's good enough or not.

Depends on the verbal abuse, if I go to a posh restaurant and get served rubbish food after paying a fortune I will have a bloody good moan at the manager and chef, maybe a swear word would slip out? Footballers are paid a fortune to entertain, if they fail after I pay a lot of money to watch him I will have a bloody good moan, maybe a swear word will slip out?

Disgusting. I just saw the video and it's disgraceful. These people are not fans. I hope they are identified and face criminal charges. A stain on the club.

CSF - Are you suggesting Lingard is a metaphorical Sardine?

06 Mar 2020 19:38:58
Csf. Would you insult the chefs family or make racist remarks or question his sexuality etc?
I would like to think not.
I agree we are entitled to be critical but some of the stick, players, refs and coaches get is way over the top.

That's the thing, moan, complain, make your feelings known but when it gets personal I think that's a step too far.

Ban the **** bags and put them on a labour farm or something.

How did nobody else in that crowd not tell the idiot to shut up. The video is disgusting.
CSF, if you get served bad food in a restaurant, you complain, get money off or a complimentary drink. You don’t abuse the staff.

I recall a game at OT where Beckham and Giggs didn’t seem to be trying, so like many others as they wandered off at HT we shouted at them to put some effort in. Thing is that is in the heat of battle, frustration at the situation.

I have seen the Lingard video, it is as they are getting on a bus. That isn’t heat of battle, that is premeditated planned abuse and as with the point above, if he is trying shouldn’t be abused, if he is playing badly it’s the managers job to not select him or substitute him.

I bet we have all shouted get him off at some point, but that is addressed to the manager, more than the player. The Lingard abuse seems planned, possibly because of social media, partly it has to be said brought about by the nonsense from the player himself.

Personally I ignore it but as in general life some get wound up more easily than others, some don’t wind down as easily as others, as appears to be the case here. I would recommend they find who it is because if they are that would up, it may well lead to something else.

I think this is just another example of the general lack of restraint in society. We saw it with politicians pre election. We see it increasingly via social media. It seems nowadays that people have no filter on their mouths or thoughts. We all need to think before we speak or act and consider how it would feel to be on the receiving end.

People have feelings. People have families. Words are more powerful than we often imagine and do hurt if used inappropriately. The psychological scars sometimes never heal. We need to be master ot them not them master of us.

No matter how frustrated we might be with the players IT IS only a game. Nobody deserves the foul mouthed abuse given to Lingard. Those responsible should be made to face him. I bet they wouldn't be so brave then.
