Star on Avram and Yom Kippur
If, as I suspect, this Daily Star story about Avram Grant refusing to work on Yom Kippur proves to be anything but kosher, I reckon the paper should be charged with racism. Given the Jewish Sabbath is traditionally a Saturday, I find it very hard to believe that Avram stands on religious ceremony when it comes to football. This reads to me like a story fabricated because Avram is Jewish.
If that is the case, then this takes gutter press journalism to a record low level. I have read some polemic anti Semitic views on the boards because of this story and that is frankly unacceptable, especially if there is no substance in this story. If untrue, Sullivan and Gold should ban journalists from the Star from the Boleyn. There are enough racists amongst our fan base without this sort of provocation!
