Racial abuse is never OK in life not just in football.
My claim to have never abused an Iron player got me thinking – surely someone must have done something sufficiently stupid enough for me to hurl abuse at them in all these years.
My thoughts took me back to Altrincham in December 1980. In the last minute Iron goalkeeper Joe Neenan knees their centre forward in the nuts, gives away a penalty and gets sent off. We lose the game and miss out on a FA cup third round tie at Anfield.
I think I may have tossed a bit of foul and abusive language in Joe’s direction.
