    Has to be said that this looks pretty reasonable under the circumstances.

    It wont do any harm for the players to be made more aware about the sensitivities of social media and hopefully will help avoid issues in the future.

    The really important thing is hopefully Bernardo can now put this out of his mind and get on with his football. Its deffo affected him having this hanging around.

    That's disgraceful comparing someone to another who has mental health issues. Someone should complain about this.

    He needs to fight it in a court of law.

    It's not a trivial matter being branded a racist in the current, irrational and intolerant climate.

    I don't for one minute believe the club are inactive to everything going on but our stance seems to be one of keeping quiet in public.
    I have no issue with this is the club believe it is the best way forward however I would rather see more public front foot approach.
    The issue is the FA have been quite cute with how they handle things with disrepute charges. I bet Pep would love to give his true opinion after a game but know that if he did he wouldn't be sat on the touchline the following week.

    Go on then. You start, and if it's not just a bunch of people making bad faith comparisons who complain, you might get somewhere!

    Yep. I'm not sure this can be considered as part of any wider agenda. If it was, then surely they'd have banned him for the Liverpool game. I just think the way things are with this kind of stuff these days, the FA really have to be seen to be doing something, even when it was something like this where clearly there was no malice intended. I'm far from a lily-livered liberal but even I could see that he'd dropped a bit of a bollock when he tweeted that!

    Could've been worse I guess. Hopefully lesson learned for the players to be careful about what they post on social media in future. At least we can move on now.

    The FA have listed the mitigating factors in its written reasons as to why Bernardo Silva got a one-game ban and a £50k fine for his racially insensitive tweet to Benjamin Mendy and not anything worse.

    Had enough out for the Liverpool game and they already knew that they wouldn't be using VAR and Oliver so have now moved onto the Chelsea game.
