A football fan who racially abused West Bromwich Albion midfielder Romaine Sawyers on social media has been jailed for eight weeks.

A court heard Simon Silwood's Facebook message was intentionally racist and not the result of autocorrect as he had claimed.

Sawyers became aware of the post after West Brom lost 5-0 to Manchester City.

Silwood, 50, from Kingswinford, West Midlands, was also ordered to pay £500 in compensation to the player.

Sentencing him at Birmingham Magistrates' Court, district judge Briony Clarke, said: "There is no place for racism or racist abuse online. This clearly, in my view, crosses the custody threshold.

"I assess the remorse you have for your actions as very minimal indeed."

Racists believe their race is superior or races should be kept apart etc. Can't have a free country if people can't Express their opinions on such things.

just like believing you can drive safely at 85mph would mean a speed limit of 70 limits your freedom.  Sanctions for criminal behavior do indeed limit one's 'freedom' and that's the bit you obviously haven't thought through:  there are lots of limits on your freedom.  you do not have carte blanche to do exactly as you please in many regards.  Racism is simply one them.  If you think having 'a free country' is more important than punishing racism then that's how you get to thinking along the lines you have. 


times have changed though feller.  Racism is criminally sanctioned.

A father-of-three who posted an "abhorrent" video abusing three England players after the Euro 2020 final has been handed a suspended sentence.

Bradford Pretty used racist terms to refer to Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka in the Facebook clip.

Pretty's solicitor said it was a "moment of drunken madness".

The 50-year-old plasterer was sentenced to 50 days in prison, suspended for 12 months, at Folkestone Magistrates' Court.

Pretty was also ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service.

Playing the video for the court, prosecutor Julie Farbrace said: "It shows him talking about the game... in particular talking about the England players who had missed a penalty at the final.

"In relation to the matter there were people who commented on the video, people who were upset about the word he put in there."

In the video, an intoxicated Pretty can be heard saying: "Where do I start? Where do I start?

"So gutted like all of us.

"Proper deflated, big proud of the boys, big proud, but anyone and everyone that knows me well will understand what I am talking about."



Pretty, from Folkestone, goes on to refer to Rashford, Sancho and Saka missing penalties and uses two racist terms to refer to them.

When challenged about his language in the comments, Pretty apologised but spoke out against "political correctness" saying: "I am standing up and saying what I said for the weak ones...England 'til I die."

His defence solicitor Richard Graham acknowledged the video was "abhorrent".

He said Pretty had drank "15 or 16" cans of lager on the day of the final and was "clearly heavily intoxicated" in the video.

Pretty admitted sending a message that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character.

England lost 3-2 on penalties to Italy after a 1-1 draw at Wembley in the final on July 11 this year. Rashford, Sancho and Saka all missed from the spot for England in the deciding shoot-out.

Elizabeth Jenkins, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "Hate crimes such as these have a massive impact on players and their mental health.

"The CPS takes this kind of offending very seriously and this case shows that where offensive content is reported to the police, we can successfully bring offenders to justice.

A Chelsea supporter posted anti-Semitic tweets aimed at Tottenham fans, including photos of Auschwitz and a man doing a Nazi salute, a court has heard.

Nathan Blagg, 21, pleaded guilty to seven counts of sending offensive messages when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The prosecutor said there had been a "racially aggravated" element to the offences because of the "anti-Semitic nature of many of them".

Blagg will be sentenced on 5 November.

The lifelong Chelsea supporter, from Retford, Nottinghamshire, sent the tweets between September 2020 and February this year, the court was told.

He posted a picture of the train tracks to Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz on Twitter, along with the message: "Spurs are on their way to Auschwitz."

Another post featured a fake image of former health secretary Matt Hancock holding a microphone saying the same words.

Jonathon Best, 52, posted a rant about Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka, the CPS said. The three missed in the penalty shootout against Italy, which England lost.

He was sentenced to 10 weeks in prison at Willesden Magistrates' Court.

Facebook took down the 18-second clip three days after it was posted.

Best had previously pleaded guilty to sending by public communication network a grossly offensive or menacing message.

The court heard the forklift driver from Feltham, west London, was reported to the police and Facebook after a friend asked him to take down the clip and he refused.

Nathan Blagg, 21, who told police the tweets were "banter between mates", was given an eight week sentence on Friday.

He had already pleaded guilty to seven counts of sending offensive messages.

District Judge Michael Hamilton told Blagg only immediate custody would be a suitable punishment for the "abhorrent and grossly offensive" tweets.

He told Westminster Magistrates' Court: "Quite frankly, the content of these messages was despicable.

"References to the holocaust and other matters cannot, on any view, ever be categorised as banter."
