I think what UEFA and FIFA mean is that if a foreign club (Mainly Barca or Madrid) commit a racial offence it will only be classed as "minor" and if it''s an English club they''ll throw the book at them!

Just like with this whole tapping up of Bale from Perez at the moment. If that was an English club UEFA wouldn''t allow it!

[quote user="Grant Holts 3 year contract"]The U21 tournament being in Israel flies in the face of their supposed "anti racism" rules.

Whatever your  politics, the country CONTINUES to violate international law. [/quote]Let''s hope the football  grounds etc are out of range of random Hamas rocket attacks from Palestine.

Lets hope that Israel stops oppressing people for the duration of the football tournament...

I  hear that the state is planning on building more settlements on Palestinian land...

Minor incident - one fan alone shouts a racist comment at a player. Player overhears it, reports it.

If the club acts swiftly in dealing with the racist fan, if there are no reports of other fans getting involved in the racist chant, if in fact other fans actually shout down the racist fan, and generally the club''s fans are very well behaved, should the action of that one fan result in the club having to play behind closed doors?

If, on the other hand, you''ve got 5000 fans in a particular section all chanting racist abuse, then it is entirely fair for the club to suffer as a result. The club either then takes drastic action and/or the fans learn to keep their bigoted views to themselves for the good of the team.
