yeah to be fair i feel exactly the same. the word's meaning seems to have been lost/warped recently but it frustrates the life out of me when fellow fans feel this somehow gives them the right to continue singing it. as unjust as it is we have to play by UEFA's rules whether we like it or not.Certainly not. Because the context within the songs are offensive. The word fenian is a legitimate word to describe an Irish settler. If they had the flag in the stadium then fair enough, they can't do that, and it would harm the club. But outside.. the boys can do or say what they like. If they said %^*& the Irish on it would anyone care? Fenian is a fair way to describe most of their fans literally, wouldn't you agree?
I'm not advocating offensive singing btw I'm just thinking of the word fenian being used that's it. I'm a up for binning the FTP/IRA shit3
