Eniola Aluko and the FA black & whitewash Can't Post or Reply Privately

This is the first time I've seen Aluko's side of the story re her accusations of racism at the England Womens set-up whilst Mark Sampson was Manager, and the lack of support from teammates.

It sounds worryingly credible.

You always have to bear in mind that this is one side of the story, but I find her very credible in the way she talks about things and I'm afraid my experiences of football (and society) don't work against what she says. Moreover, I cannot detect any motive for her to make these accusations unless they are genuine. She is a successful footballer with a high profile. Even if she were not performing to the level that she or others would like, for England, it's a big risk to start making those accusations, true or not.

On balance, I believe her and I'm disappointed at the way she was treated, and ashamed of my national FA for making such a pig's ear of the whole situation.

She was dropped, so sour grapes and/or revenge has to be possible. She's also a lawyer so making nonsense plausible will be second nature.
