Tottenham Hotspur fans give clear indication on 'Yid' chants

Tottenham Hotspur fans are voting unanimously in favouring of embracing their ‘Yid’ chants.

The debate over the Y word has been rolling on ever since the FA put forward proposals to stamp it out of the game, which included plans to punish Tottenham fans for using the word in chants.

Several high profile individuals, including the Prime Minister himself, have got involved in the debate with the majority urging common sense to prevail, with Spurs fans allowed to use ‘Yid’ chants as a method of celebrating their club.

“There's a difference between Spurs fans self-describing themselves as Yids and someone calling someone a Yid as an insult. You have to be motivated by hate. Hate speech should be prosecuted – but only when it's motivated by hate,” David Cameron told the Jewish Chronicle.

With Tottenham canvassing opinion from season ticket holders, one site,, has urged fans to vote on the issue with a vast majority of supporters finding nothing wrong with the term whatsoever.
