I WELCOME UEFA's new get-tough stance on racism, just as I did when they announced a crack down on at their first anti-racism conference at Stamford Bridge three years ago.
Since then they've had plenty of chances to hit racist clubs, players and supporters hard but have fallen back on slap-wrist punishments and lame excuses.
When they finally dock significant points or throw a big-name club out of a competition, I'll believe they want to eradicate this poison and not just pay lip service to the problem to curry favour with politicians.
