"Both Wolves and Walsall are fiercely committed to stamping out all types of discrimination within football and will vigorously investigate all allegations of racist abuse."

Walsall have pledged to co-operate with West Midlands Police and Wolves and have warned that anyone found guilty of racial abuse will be banned for life.

A statement on their website read: "Both Wolves and Walsall are fiercely committed to stamping out all types of discrimination within football and will vigorously investigate any and all allegations of racist abuse.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).
