It’s time to ditch the Y-word, Spurs

Daily Mail - - Football -

ONCE again, at Tot­ten­ham’s new ground on Tues­day, the word Yid was used lib­er­ally by a crowd of 60,000, the majority Gen­tile. The in­creased ca­pac­ity means it is now heard more force­fully and pow­er­fully than ever be­fore. Any Jewish Tot­ten­ham sup­porter who does not see this as prob­lem­atic might care to study the his­tory book for which Jeremy Cor­byn wrote a gush­ing fore­word, with­out a sec­ond thought. Mak­ing Yid ac­cept­able, in any con­text these days, is not help­ful.
