Yes he was back again making comments about footballers standing up to racism.
Last night he took to Twitter after the England stars took the knee, before their World Cup qualifier against Hungary, which was marred with racism from the crowd.
He said: “Yes! Great to hear some good booing of the poor old oppressed millionaires! Spoiled little woke babies.”

The England players then went on to be subjected to racial abuse and pelted with objects during the game. Many people have been very complimentary about the way the players conducted themselves in face of the shocking abuse.
Speaking after the match, England manager Gareth Southgate said those who chant against the players are “dinosaurs”. He said: “It sounds like there has been some incidents and everybody knows what we stand for as a team and that that’s completely unacceptable.
“They (the players) recognise the world is changing. Although some people are stuck in their way of thinking and prejudices, they are going to be the dinosaurs in the end because the world is modernising.
“Hungary isn’t anywhere near as diverse in their population as our country is, it is still taking us a long, long time to get to where we need to get to and inevitably, if other countries don’t have that same level of diversity, it is probably not in their thinking in the same way as in our country.”

Disgusting but predictable behaviour because we’ve seen it on many occasions.
We now await UEFA’s £12.33 fine to the Hungary FA.

People were not as much enthusiastic about Fox’s taking the knee moan.
