    "Nearly every game Iím called a monkey or a n***** or a whatever," he says.

    Anyone else find this hard to believe?!

    Never picked up by microphones? Never reported to police or by players?
    I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      Maybe by his teammates?
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      And that's just by his goalkeeper.

      Agreed. Delusional. But then again he plays for Palase so what can you expect.

      Whether or not that is the case I'm a little surprised that a thread would have been started intending to counter it and fuel another Zaha binfest.

      Racism is an issue in sport and shouldn't be a platform used as a banter football to start to having a go at an opposition player who's experience we know little of.

      Grow up.

      If this was another player I doubt we would see this thread.

      What? I'm asking legit questions.

      I don't think - in fact, I know - racism wouldn't be tolerated by fans at The Amex - where Zaha is, at best, not well liked - so I'm wondering when and where these comments occur.

      FA investigating, btw, so that's good.
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      I think posters are just saying he is delusional. Well he is isn’t he ?
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      I have heard a LOT of abuse towards Zaha, but never a single racist comment. Maybe we BHA fans are just more evolved?

      He's lucky he doesn't play for us, he'd get homophobic abuse as well probably.
