Standard Sport reporter Simon Johnson has claimed to have heard chants of ‘the y-word’ from the Chelsea away supporters in Cardiff.
Accusations of anti-semitic chanting have marred our season, along with our uninspiring performances under Maurizio Sarri.

We’ll have to wait and see if there’s any further verification of these claims. If it arrives, there’s no doubt those involved should be punished accordingly.

The y-word needs to exit English football altogether. It’s partially our responsibility to ensure it does, but Tottenham fans also need to stop using it on a weekly basis.
