    Racism in Limerick?

    Early reports this morning that Man city's Gael Clichy had a banana thrown at him during the Limerick v Man city match.

      Heard that as well, utter disgrace. Mindless tossers who have never left home and think they are men.

      Barry Duggan will have a field day, Cathy Halloran will have the cameras out.

        There are always a few gowls around in every city, but you'd like to think that he had the head pucked off him by others in the crowd who saw it happen. No place for that in sport or any facet of life.

          No official complaint from City, no mention of it during the match. Why not raise it through the correct channels instead of mouthing about it on twitter to get the daily mail brigade on the case?

          Either way it wouldn't surprise me if it happened and I doubt it was racially motivated either. Just the usual antics from our "best soccer supporters in the world" continuing their love in with a foreign club Manchester United so naturally Man city are the undying enemy. They booed Balotelli during the Euros for absolutely no reason as well. They continue to be an embarrassment to this country.

            I find this very hard to believe.

              He probably couldn´t open it, so decided to throw it... the gobsh!te.....
              He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                It did happen, there's no allegedly about it.
                I'm confused as to why anyone would throw a banana at a black/non-white player for any reason other than racism?

                    Do they sell bananas in Thomond?

                    Or would one need to bring it in for the sole purpose of acting like the ultimate ****wit?

                      I wish someone would throw bananas at me because I love eating bananas.

                        It had to be brought in. There were plenty there last night who might do something like this and so few stewards on the terraces that nobody would have complained.

                            No one listened when I said that we shouldn't let that ****ing game anywhere near our stadium. Hopefully this will be ample evidence that it should never darken the door again.
