what is said and done there matters here. hello and welcome to sportsday, march 29th. i'm lizzie greenwood—hughes. was that in your calendar as the day here's what's coming that we were going to leave up on tonight's show. the eu, and now we're not? in a week when racism absolutely, yeah. in football hits the headlines, so how are you feeling today? players and their managers say frustrated. as a person who voted to leave, very frustrated that my decision hasn't gone forward. they're prepared to walk off. it's questionable now. football is a strong weapon, a how are you feeling? you voted remain. the vote has gone strong weapon to defend the exactly how i expected. principles of humanity. the government is having major issues here and is in turmoil. west brom keep the pressure and i really don't know on their promotion rivals where this is going, with a 3—2 win over birmingham. but my gut feeling is and fighting for female sport — that the government will collapse. paula radcliffe backs the iaaf opinions on today's vote in the caster semenya case. are split among members. enjoying a well—earned drink after their round, two remainers and two leavers wondering what happens next. i don't know where parliament's going to go. the government's leading. i don't think there has been leadership from the government from the start. i think our mps have made a real bad hello and welcome to sportsday.
job of this whole thing. so plenty of sport for you, the vote was to leave, and i think we should leave. but we're starting with football, i've changed my mind, yes. and as the premier league i now want to remain, returns tomorrow, so does the question because we've made a complete mess from the beginning of negotiating. of how to tackle racism from fans. the abuse of callum hudson odoi and raheem sterling, i'd do a no deal playing for england this week, on the 12th of april. that doesn't worry you? prompted the pair to speak out, that doesn't worry me. and now their managers have warned they'd back their players this tile company is in the middle walking off the field if it happens again. of a city which was split in half adam wild reports. in the 2016 referendum. i feel very uncomfortable, remain achieved 50.3% but i am feeling i am of the vote in leeds. leave only very marginally hearing racial chanting when danny rose is picking behind at 49.7%. up the ball. football's international break almost all of the stock may be over, here comes from europe, still the controversy continues, and profit margins have been hit since the vote. england's victory was marred by racist abuse, we do need clarity, and as the premier league because as a business, all we want is to move on and be prepares to resume, positive about what's the debate turns yet again to combatting the issue. going to happen next. nobody knows what's going to happen among those targeted, next, so that uncertainty that is out there in the marketplace raheem sterling, his club manager today saying is creating problems. the problem is getting worse, and they could be left with no choice but to walk off the field. we could do that, so football today was to be the day the uk is in a strong weapon, it is a strong weapon to defend
struck out from the european union. the principles of humanity, so when the club or the players instead, britain will be staying or the organisation decide put — at least for now. to do it, we will follow. sarah campbell, bbc news, leeds. that's it from us here in westminster on the day we were supposed to be leaving of course, we have to involve the european union. the club and the chairmans and the ceos and the captains, my players, we will decide it turned out to be the day that mps again voted we can do it, why not? against the prime minister and refused to back her brexit divorce deal. they'll be back here on monday as they resume efforts to find a way through the brexit deadlock. and we'll be back with all the latest developments. but right now newsnight is getting callum hudson—odoi was part of that team in montenegro. under way on bbc two with kirsty, 00:02:31,653 --> 2147483051:38:00,542 here on bbc one it's time 2147483051:38:00,542 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 for the news where you are. it came less than a fortnight after he was racially abused. stopping the game, at least temporarily again, suggested as a solution. in every country there are some stupid people, ithink. so it's a big problem, i think that we need to do something different, probably it's right to stop the match for ten minutes at the first situation.
it has been a season punctuated by allegations of racism. in december, a spurs fan was given a four—year football ban for throwing a banana skin at arsenal's aubameyang. while days later, several chelsea fans were banned over allegations they abused raheem sterling. but does stopping games give too much power to a minority of fans? it is very difficult for me to hear things like that, and you probably see it in a moment if it is one guy or two guys, if it is the whole stand, then i would do it, yeah. 100%. if a whole stand has the same opinion, but that is too much power for one or two or three orfour idiots. as the premier league enters its closing stages, as rivalries are renewed, there does seem consensus that drastic measures are now needed. there was a cracking midlands derby
