Cardiff in the news. Malky was a racist.

http://prosoccertalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/20/malky-mackay-and-iain-moody-investigated-by-fa-for-sexist-racist-and-homophobic-text-messages-while-at-cardiff-city/

According to the Daily Mail, Mackay and Moody were under investigation for eight controversial transfers – totaling around $75 million – made by the duo while at Cardiff in 2013. As part of that investigation, Cardiff hired Mishcon de Reya to perform an investigation into the transfers, which revealed that $4.5 million was withheld in payments due to agents.

The investigation also turned up 70,000 text messages and 100,000 emails in connection to alleged wrongdoing related to transfers. Mackay and Moody were told that Cardiff were in possession of these messages, which have since been passed along to the FA as per rules requiring clubs to report any matters that may constitute ‘aggravated misconduct’.

Below are bullet-points of the alleged remarks, which contain sexist, racist and homophobic language:

In July 2012, Cardiff signed South Korean international Kim Bo-kyung, but when Moody informed Mackay on July 12 that ‘five of the b******s including the player’ were arriving for talks, the reply from Mackay’s phone was: ‘Fkn chinkys.’ A further message says: ‘Fk it. There’s enough dogs in Cardiff for us all to go around.’

In reference to the prominent football agent, Phil Smith, a text states: ‘Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers’. The Israeli club, Maccabi Tel Aviv, are also referred to simply as ‘the Jews’.

A football official at another club is referred to as ‘a gay snake’ and ‘the homo’ and someone who is ‘not to be trusted’, while a French player is someone ‘who struck me as an independently minded young homo’.

An exchange with a young player who has a female agent makes reference to a sex act and states: ‘I hope she’s looking after your needs,’ the player is then told. ‘I bet you’d love a bounce on her falsies.’

On August 16, 2012, a list of players proposed by a French agent is forwarded, stating to Mackay that ‘he needs to rename his agency the All Blacks’. A separate text in reference to a list of French players states: ‘Not many white faces amongst that lot but worth considering.’

In a separate exchange a picture entitled ‘Black Monopoly’ is sent, with every square a ‘Go To Jail’ square. Of one African player, it is stated: ‘Doesn’t look like a good cv. And he’s Nigerian.’

Actually, I think the fact that the language used was so blatant and off the cuff casual means it's quite common in the football world in the UK (at the least).

And guess who name in the mix as a replacement... Tony Pulis

Here's a reminder of what KJ had to say about Pulis: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2430411/Kenwyne-Jones-reveals-quit-Stoke-City-Tony-Puliss-bland-style-football.html

I also think it's probably common language. I also think all these work permits rules are to keep the sport in England from becoming dominated by black foreigners. They aren't there fussing about other Europeans or Argentinians. Its the Africans, West Indians etc they don't want.

Don't quite agree with your argument.  While permit issuance can come over as a somewhat subjective decision, it is heavily based on the caliber of the player, in terms of how many international caps he has, as well as the Fifa ranking of his national team.  You're a bit over the top here.

so which T&T player is playing (at least semi-consistently) in the highest level league now?
Maybe Cornell Glen might have a case   ;D
