The Police and Spurs have been unable to find no evidence of Monkey Chants at the Spurs v Chelsea game:

Clearly, the authorities have and are still taking it seriously but have been unable to find anything either way.

The problem is unless the offender does something obvious, like a full on "ape" impression to the TV cameras, there is little evidence other than the noise from "someone in a crowd".

So where do you draw the "acceptable abuse" line? Fat? Ginger? Parentage? The Referee? The opposition (Scum for example)?

Its better to let such behaviour die out naturally through peer pressure and the offenders mates having a word IMHO.

Most grounds now have CCTV covering the crowd - so there is a possibility of the offender being caught.

I think there are always going to be pillocks who think it clever to use racist language - and they tend to congregate with others of a similarly low IQ, so the chances of their mates 'having a word' are slight. And (before anyone says it) it is not easy for other members of the crowd to wade into a group of such people and tell them to shut up.

If someone is caught (by TV, CCTV, stewards etc) then chuck them out, and keep them out.

Spurs can track all fans at their ground on their CCTV camera system they have in place, so I suspect their review of the footage has been very extensive. Finding nothing is a bit of surprise in that light as presumably the stand it came from is known and Rudiger knew what slurs were used, so it would have been an easier to task to look at particular offenders.

Who knows what they'd find if the same system was used at Grenoble Road in the North Stand toilets.

Spurs are my B team. On occasions at the Lane I have heard a local chant following a particularly robust challenge by a spurs player. Went along the lines of the rap “Who let the dogs out, Who? Who? Who?” For ‘Dogs, substitute ’yids’ . Son’s challenge was silly and petulant but looked robust.

Perhaps this is what was heard? Just sayin.

Brexit will rid Britain of racism, because all the racists, like many other Brexiters, will be too busy making stuff for export once we've left the world's greatest free market and are trading (freely) around the rest of the world (again).

Anyone in that B team good enough for us? A couple of full backs and a striker?

Ian, I was thinking that Spurs, the way they are playing at the moment, would be better off buying Rob Dickie and Moose to shore up their defence rather than sending us any of their underachieving back four!

but I doubt Daniel will spend the money...
