    Beany - for the reasons I've stated before I firmly believe you're wrong.

    As far as the wider political arguments regarding the middle east - any posts on that subject may well be removed. This is not a political forum and to be honest, a football forum is probably the worst place to discuss politics because of the fact that most fans are by nature passionate people.

    If anyone wants to continue the political argument please provide a link to a more appropriate forum.

    hmmm, bullshit.
    1886, well said son. im going to the game blatantly and i will be singing the same as you. as will 3,000 other gooners. it is only a minority that want it stopped. maybe in normaly public this using of the term yid is bad, but at arsenal/tottenham games, it is NOT. ive been sining it since i was 6, and i will sing it til i die. tottenham are yids in my eyes and no preacher will ever change my views.
    we are the tottenham haters

    Fair enough!

    In fact I'm sure you're right to the extent that the way this thread has developed isn't appropriate for a football forum.

    This is therefore my last post on the subject.

    In closure all I say is please understand the difference between language and context.

    Beany- all you need to know about me is that i am ARSENAL THROUGH AND THROUGH. If i wanted to discuss polotics i would go elsewhere, simple as.

    Ive also made it perfectly clear that when i use the term "yid" i am referring to scum not members of a particular religious faith and with that i also stated that any anti semetic songs, chants or slogans would be frowned upon by myself. So after all that, yes, i will be carrying on regardless.

    As for reducing myself and the club- well, have you considered 18 away credits were required to be able to attend this game, there will be s/t holders, away scheme members and tc members that make up our three thousand allocation- and when theyre all singing yid songs will you also consider these die hards as letdowns?

    well said 1886, that was all my bruv was trying to say. when singing yido songs it not abusing a racial group just Sp**s fans. and he got blocked for saying that !! censorship !

    You are using the word Yid to chant and sing at Sp**s fans because they draw their support from the Jewish community. This is the source of the jibe. As I said earlier, if we play a team that draws support from the Black community, can we sing Niggers and Coons to them? It has to work across the board. Does anyone feel it would be acceptable to sing Niggers to opposition fans with a large black fan base? If they do I would love to hear the rational behind that logic.

    i cant believe this thread is even here, they abuse us more than we abuse them, they can all p**s off. I agree with clockend faithful. It isnt a racist thing or anything like that, they call themselve the yid army so it isnt iverly derogatory term if they call themselves it!!!!
    There needs to more passion from arsenal fans and stop being too soft

    Hey, I don't give a hoot if it derogatory to the Sp**s fans or not. The question is whether its is abusive to Jewish people. I sometimes wonder about people and their brains. Afundell, re-read your post and understand where you went wrong
