What a load of f-rubbish.
Racial equality, racial equality, shut up and get the f on with it.
The reason that there are not many Asian or Chinese players, playing at the top level, is because they are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Being genetically smaller
than Europeans on the whole, they can't cope with the physical demands of our game, simple fact.
'If your face fits' rubbish, if you had the choice of employing a stranger or someone you know, you would go for the second option, becuase you know
what your are getting! So it would amaze me if clubs didn't have informal recruitment policies.
I refused to go on my equal opportunities course, it's a waste of time, they are supposed to teach you about seeing past colour and background and
judging on merits. I agree with this totally in principle but the courses are biased towards ethnic groups so it's counterpreductive!
