In addition, I'm also extremely disappointed to see the ridiculous virtue signalling of wolves players ( and other teams) kneeling for the " black lives matter movement ". This organisation is purported to deal with racism but it's an extreme far left group close to Marxism supporting anti capitalism as well as disbanding police forces etc... witnessing footballers on thousands of pounds per week adopting a subservient kneeling stance behind this group is not only hypocritical but utterly laughable.
Football is a working mans sport which serves as a form of escapism for many and should not be used as a platform to advertise organisations like this which many including me don't support. I would take it as a given the vast majority of people don't care what colour a persons skin is and expecting players to kneel like lapdogs to prove they don't condone racism is disgusting and as pathetic as people wanting to tear down statues of Winston churchill etc so they can take a few selfies on twatter/fb

The problem with it now Angry is that players, support staff and (I dare say) even officials are now frightened to stay off their knee, as they will be accused of being racists!! I believe the movement has been hijacked in the public protests by the left wing movement, rather than it actually being such a movement. Their public demonstrations have equally been an opportunity for the right -wing fascists to get out on the streets and cause their own mayhem which has turned an ostensibly peaceful protest into a violent confrontation.
My opinion is that the players opted to show their support for Black lives Matter - as they would be expected to because there are no all-white teams playing these days - and I support them for doing so, however I now think they have made their point and it is time to move on before it's seen as a boring ritual.

The public demonstrations for the most part have nothing to do with racism or black lives- they have been taken over by thugs primarily under 25 defacing private/public property. It was similar in 2011 when we had mindless idiots smashing businesses up due to one black death and there are parallels today with events of 9 years ago.

3 people died in a racist attack in Reading where a black immigrant attacked 3 white males... any footballers kneeling for them or just a convicted robber in the states who threatened to blow a baby out of a pregnant womans stomach. All lives matter, black lives should not be regarded as any different to white lives and I'm disgusted by every club involved with this ridiculous movement which has now been ostracised by many who purported to support it a few weeks ago

I think rather than these empty gestures and logos talking about BLM kneeling down like a slave supporting an anti capitalist movement on millions of pounds per year, NHS badges ( an organisation which is hugely flawed with gross incompetence across the sector leaving as we saw in the news this week thousands of women permanently disfigured with the " mesh procedure" , rainbow armbands etc the players should do what they are paid to do .... kick a ball about. I don't believe movements linked to politics, religion or race should feature in football
