    They were bloody annoying at City Square. Hopefully the club will vet the next lot for brains.

    And while discussing City's late arrival in China for last month's pre-season tour, a fictitious 'Mr Wong' claimed the club's plane was twice cancelled because of a lack of Jackie Chan films on the flight.

    In the 'Mr Wong' persona, McClean was recorded saying: 'You like Jackie Chan? Me (sic) like Jackie Chan! We no (sic) have paperwork or Jackie Chan film on plane. You need Jackie Chan film on plane.'

    Please dont give ferris anymore airtime down to this..................

    City Sq & Halftime activities have become tired, same old routine.

    In fact, maybe gives club opportunity to start again from scratch?

    Doubt it was done with malicious intent but doing racist impressions of Chinese and Spanish people when we're 13% owned by Chinese investors and have a predominantly Spanish managing team is stupid. Doing "old people poo" jokes about Brian Kidd is stupid. Doing "Ha! You're gay!" jokes when we're affiliated with Stonewall is stupid... It's idiotic behaviour really that's massively outdated so they probably deserve to have the book thrown at them. They had lucrative jobs at City that most of us would dream of and they took their roles for granted by behaving like this... so.

    Or damage the reputation of the club with actual or potential sponsors.

    Good. Racism should not be tolerated just because it is aimed at Asian people.

    If you have to resort to lazy racist banter, you're a shit comedian anyway.

    Shit, if they would have drawn a cartoon about it they would have made hundreds of millions instead.

    Haven’t got two brain cells between them if they thought they’d get away with humour that was painfully unfunny decades ago.

    Everyone these days just wants to be seen to be offended or wants to be seen standing up against things that are seen as offensive.

    McLean is the only one on that team I can stand to listen to. The others are all far too over enthusiastic and say too many words while a few will do.

    We haven’t sacked Ferris after what he was like at the parade but we’ve sacked two lads for being stupid?

    They should have been warned for fuck’s sake.

    Now we’re just left with the shit lot.
