English FA Told Graham Taylor To Not Pick Too Many Black Players

Recommended Posts

The Football Association tried to impose an unofficial quota system on the number of black players an England manager should be allowed to use, according to a new book about racism within the sport.

Pitch Black, written by Emy Onuora, includes a passage in which one of the sport’s leading anti-racism campaigners claims Graham Taylor admitted to him he had been summoned by two members of the FA’s hierarchy and told “in no uncertain terms” he should not go beyond a certain limit.

There is absolutely no suggestion that Taylor, with a long history of working with some of England’s leading black players over the past 30 years, adhered to this policy but the book recounts him saying there were senior figures trying to put pressure on him to keep the team predominantly white.

Not even a surprise. They used to make it pretty obvious.

 

Probably the same people who don't want to see many black managers in the league.

Apparently they said he needed five chances to score one goal

England's best manager since Robson actually made Cole first choice

While England failed to qualify for USA '94 Cole had something like 41 goals in 46 games that season.
