Sections Of Manchester City Fans Slated For "Feed The Scousers" Chant At Etihad

Sections Of Manchester City Fans Slated For "Feed The Scousers" Chant At Etihad

The chant "Feed The Scousers, Let Them Know It's Christmas Time" was heard from the terraces on Saturday afternoon during Everton's visit to the Etihad, and many believe the chant is simply not acceptable.

At least 320,000 people are homeless in Britain, according to research by the housing charity Shelter.

In fact, shocking figures show almost 450 homeless people have died in the UK in the last 12 months, a serious and concerning matter in this country.

One Twitter user commented on the chant, saying: "City fans singing feed the Scousers, with with current foodbank situation in England and its support from Football clubs they should hang hang their heads in shame."

While another said: "How ironic is it that Manchester has one of the highest levels of homelessness, yet City fans sing about supposedly needing to 'Feed the scousers."

Here's some of the reaction from social media:

According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which carried out the nationwide investigation, 449 deaths last year were those of people registered as homeless.

However, it's feared the figure could be much higher as there's currently no official definition of 'homeless' - included in the figures were rough sleepers and people in emergency accommodation.

The investigation found that 14 people died in a single week.

The horrifying figures have been slammed by homelessness charities and campaigners. Polly Neate, CEO of Shelter, said: "This important investigation lays bare the true brutality of our housing crisis.

"Rising levels of homelessness are a national disgrace, but it is utterly unforgivable that so many homeless people are dying unnoticed and unaccounted for."

Please think before you chant.
