Grant: Is it cos I is Jewish?
Of course, Grant was subjected to race hate after he took over at Chelsea. The Jewish Conspiracy theorists leapt on the fact that Abromovitch was also a Jew, and, like good little Nazis, immediately claimed Grant's appointment was based more on the absence of a foreskin than on the existence of a coaching badge. Chelsea actually stated that some of the protests directed towards Grant constituted abuse of a racist nature, with Bruce Buck claiming they had received points of view which were racist and antiSemitic.
One regular poster on this site labelled Grant a "Zionist" very early doors, although quite what this has to do with his ability to manage the club is beyond me. I accept that Grant's record so far exposes him to criticism, but why were fans ready to stay loyal to Zola for so long, even when it was patently obvious that he was sinking and pulling the club down with him, and yet are now so quick to condemn Grant? It just does not make logical sense.
Remember, we are not Spurs. We don't sack our managers every five minutes. But hang on, that may be the problem for some! Maybe they fear that with Gold owning the club and Grant as manager, we are turning into the "Yids" anyway!
