PFA Sends A Survey To Clubs Asking If They Really Want To Take The Knee

PFA Sends A Survey To Clubs Asking If They Really Want To Take The Knee after the recent episodes of fans booing players

The Professional Football Association (PFA), has sent out a survey form to all the Premiership, EFL, and Women’s Super League professional football clubs in England, containing five questions, asking them whether they really wanted to continue the pre-match ritual in support of BLM, of ‘taking the knee’.

The questions included asking whether the players would prefer to take the knee individually, by personal choice, or for the whole team to take the knee together, and asks their opinions on what could be done if there is still a bad reaction from the fans to this gesture, referring to the recent booing by fans at 3 recent matches.

The last two questions in the survey asked if individuals have any detailed thoughts on another more appropriate type of gesture that could possibly replace taking the knee

This situation has arisen since fans were allowed back into grounds, and earlier this week, an Exeter fan was removed from the premises, before the game with Harrogate Town,  after booing the players, with boos and jeers also coming from the crowd during the Cambridge versus Colchester match, accompanied by cheers from the majority of fans, in an attempt to drown out the booing.

      Instead of asking if clubs wish to abandon the knee nonsense, the PFA ought to have sent a directive ordering them to stop it forthwith!
      Just why English clubs, uniquely in Europe, as far as I can see, insist in paying homage to a Marxist organization puzzles me.

      IMHO, the problem of a “knee” is that the supporters are too young.
      Additionally, alas, they did not study any History lessons at school.
      Consequently they have failed to see the similarity of this Political Organisation and that of a similar “support” or “homage” to the Austrian born, Chancellor in Germany in the mid 1930´s who acknowledged arm waving in the air.
