FA Will Not Take Action With EPL Tottenham Over Fans' Chanting Of 'Yid'
Published September 17, 2013
CLUB TO MAKE STATEMENT: The London TELEGRAPH reported Tottenham will "ask supporters if they want to stop chanting 'Yid' in matches." Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust Chair Darren Alexander said that the club "will be sending out a questionnaire to gauge the mood on the terraces." Alexander: "There is a document that Spurs will be sending out to season-ticket holders in due course. It's a questionnaire, and basically what the club want to ascertain is do the fans think now is the right time to stop using this identity." The FA's intervention "prompted a fierce response from Spurs supporters" who insist they should be "the ones to decide whether it is time to end the chants." Alexander added, "If Spurs fans genuinely are going to stop using this word then it should be our decision" (TELEGRAPH, 9/16).
