Of course, a cynic might suggest that Leeds are only making a stand against vile chants in an effort to head off any sanctions from the FA after the shocking events at Hillsborough, but let's not be churlish. I have called for West Ham to take more strenuous action against the morons on the terraces who chant disgusting things, and Leeds have now taken the initiative by calling on fans to turn their backs in disgust.
It's a start, but it's not enough. All clubs know where the trouble makers gather and it is time for much stronger enforcement of codes of decency. Cameras must be trained on these sections of the ground and microphones set up pitch side to catch exactly what is being "sung". It will then be easy to show images of those responsible and to issue lifelong bans from the ground whilst using local rags such as the YEP to publicly shame the scum who turn football into a war.
The cry will go up that it is just "banter" but that is nonsense. It is foul, it is abusive, it is disgusting and it is utterly unacceptable. Chants should be affirmative, positive, encouraging and directed at the players on the pitch - there is no place for the foul abuse that so often features in games.
