I, for one, am offended.

He is not a genius because he is Belgian. Nor are all Belgians geniuses. I resent the implication that the rest of us super-geniuses look down on Lukaku or his compatriots simply because they are only geniuses by virtue of their birthplace.

Shut this song down I say.

It is to the tune of "Made of Stone" by stone roses.

It is racist. You'll find it on any number of websites including the daily mirror.

I don't find it particularly racist or offensive. I do find it shite though.

Don't find it offensive myself but I'm not a black male.

Is it racist? Absolutely. Is it intentionally racist designed to cause offence? No. Does that mean it's OK? No. Did it make me laugh the first time I heard it? Yes. Should we stop singing it? Yes.

And our fans are more in tune than Browner last time I saw him sing it.

Censorship in football is killing off what little life remains in the stands. And it leads to shit like this:

It's not even vaguely funny, and doesn't really scan.

It's just poor.

Do a decent tune this would be far better than the actual song.

I don't care what your race is, if a small section of fans are singing about how long your dong is - through sheer harmless cheap humour, I do not think you'd be too pissed off about it.

The song was about Lukaku and Lukaku only - not an entire race of people. So therefore, only Lukaku has the right to be offended or dismiss it.

It's classic in this day and age for people of all backgrounds to be offended on behalf of others. There's so much more going on in this world of importance than being offended about a crappy chant, complimenting a football player's tackle.

And dismiss it he has, so that kind of kicks a hole in your whole first paragraph. Maybe he doesn't want to be seen as just a guy with a big cock.
