Sky Sports are making plans to ensure offensive language is not audible amid fan protests during Everton's upcoming clash with Manchester United.

The Toffees host Man Utd on Sunday in their first match since being docked 10 points for breaching the Premier League's profitability and sustainability rules. There is expected to be a vociferous backlash to the ruling at Goodison Park, with a protest planned including chanting "Premier League, corrupt as fuck" in the 10th minute of the game. Sky Sports are broadcasting the game and may take steps to reduce crowd noise as a result.

According to The Times, the broadcaster is concerned about breaching Ofcom's rules on offensive material, with the game kicking off on Sunday afternoon when families and children will be watching. It is reported that, following an internal meeting, Sky Sports will try to reduce fan noise or distort the sound so foul language is not clearly audible.

It is claimed that any censorship of the protest will be purely to fall in line with Ofcom's regulations, rather than take a stance on the dispute between the club, its fans and the Premier League. Everton fan group, The 1878 Originals is also planning to fly a plane with a banner over the Etihad Stadium during Man City's clash with Liverpool, as it will be dark during the Toffees' game.

It's sure to be a red-hot atmosphere at Goodison, with events off the pitch likely to be as enthralling as those on it. Everton are in decent form having won four of their last six games, and Sean Dyche's men will hope to use the supporters' anger as fuel.

So the cover up begins… Sky are planning to use pre-recorded crowd sounds, and try to prevent offensive language being heard on the TV:

It's apparently due to the game being shown before the watershed, which to be frank, most games are, and therefore to keep within Ofcom's guidelines. I've often felt that most games broadcast from Goodison, the sound levels are generally a lot less than at other stadiums, and very often it doesn't reflect the noise levels within the stadium.

The crowd will just have to be less 'sweary' and more visual in its protests, in order to get its message across.

Rob, it is said towards the end of the piece that Sky will not be using pre-recorded crowd noise. So, if they stick to this the slippery clowns, it would be quite strange to have the volume knob turned down.

Apparently it's only Everton "hooligans" who ever say "fuck" or "bollocks" at footy matches.

"The crowd will just have to be less 'sweary' and more visual in its protests, in order to get its message across."

The cameras though might just not show any of the crowd banners etc.

However, our 10 outfield players might each have on their shirt one letter from the following - FUCKTHEEPL. I'd suggest a 4-3-3 formation for impact.

As somebody elsewhere said, Sky's coverage will be all about Man Utd anyway, they'll spend most of their time talking about the intrigues of the possible takeover at Old Trafford, go on about how tough it's been for Ten Hag and his players.

When they start the coverage of the game itself, they'll manage to mention who the mighty Red Devils are playing against.

Rob, as I've just messaged you, a pathetic and almost former Soviet style East European style of containment of opinion. You could call it dictatorship.

The voice won't be silenced. Goodison will be loud and proud. And let them try and quell the voices of the masses around the ground. They have no chance.

They may well think they are a George Orwell Animal Farm type of dictatorship, but they've picked the wrong club if they want silence.

A quote from the novel:

"Napoleon is the dictator of Animal Farm, whereas following the Russian Revolution, Joseph Stalin was the dictator. They were both cruel and oppressive rulers, who exploited their subjects through tyranny and deceit".

How very apt to the Premier League.

I'll repeat. Be loud and proud. Be heard. We are not going down without fighting.

Dave, I know good friends who make the same argument.

We are not Kopites.

But I would never blame the supporters who travel long and far into the early and late hours.

Those who follow from around the globe at ridiculous hours.

I'll never accept it is the supporters' fault.

On Sunday we march down the Goodison Road. Bold and defiant.

Predictably Sky going to try and limit our protests by threatening the coverage vs Man Utd.

I wonder if the FA had a word! Cannot imagine any outside interference, can you?

Let's use the nuclear option and go after everyone who has maligned us.

We should sue the commission, the Premier League, the other clubs involved, the referees association, VARs, Liverpool for the European ban (loss of earnings) etc..

Let the shit hit the fan and see where we end up. Masters and Co are terrified of bad publicity. Let's take this to the UN, the ICC. the WTO etc… and see if these fuckers like being dragged through the mud.

So if it will be too dark to see a 'plane with a banner, why not have a helicopter landing on the centre circle at 10 minutes into the game?

James, I would expect the players to move out of the way, not stand there and have their heads chopped off.

So maybe even not land but just drop down low and release their banner onto the pitch?

Danny, I attended the Supporters Group meeting last night and volunteered to help out with organisation on Sunday so if I make the Harlech it will be early.

I believe there is a march organised starting at The Brick.

Incidentally, I don't know if you can make it but there is a protest planned for the Premier League offices in London this evening at 5:30.

Howard Don
15 Posted 23/11/2023 at 13:54:53
It won't bother me in the ground but it has to be said that the “corrupt as fuck” chant is likely to be a complete own goal in terms of getting the fans' outrage into the media.

Sky have said they will not attempt to silence protest but will comply with Ofcom rules by filtering out anything likely to cause offence, so it won't be heard.

Neither will they allow it on news broadcasts, local or national, MotD2 or anywhere else for that matter. Best you can hope for is a crowd holding up cards in complete silence.

Totally counter-productive in my opinion.

Dale Self
16 Posted 23/11/2023 at 14:03:48
Odd that they feel the need to get this story out before the match. I would have simply taken action and answered for it later with the same explanation.

Some in suits are getting rather nervous, I think.

Rob Halligan
17 Posted 23/11/2023 at 14:23:28
So Sky know there is a planned chant of “Premier League Corrupt as Fuck” at the 10th minute, and so will be prepared to hit the silence button.

What happens when say, after 17 minutes, or 33 minutes, or 54 minutes, or whatever minute you like a chant of “Premier League Corrupt as Fuck”, suddenly goes up?

Is there going to be somebody in the Sky TV vans outside with his finger permanently glued to the silence button for 90+ minutes, anticipating such a chant?

Kevin Prytherch
18 Posted 23/11/2023 at 14:30:04
Chant without swearing.
Turn your backs at 10 mins.
Banners without swear words.
Banners draped over advertising boards (mainly for upper seats - they'll no doubt be removed pitch side).

“Premier League, corrupt as fuck” is never going to be allowed.

Tony Dunn
19 Posted 23/11/2023 at 14:30:25

I do hope that the events on Sunday don't result in us being punished even further. I really don't want that David Philips KC to have yet another opportunity to stick the boot in.

Apparently he was on the panel that meted out the £300k fine for the 'pitch invasion' at the end of the infamous Palace game.

Brian Harrison
21 Posted 23/11/2023 at 14:46:43
I don't believe that Sky are trying to stifle any protests as their 2 main pundits for this game, namely Neville and Carragher, have both heavily criticised the Premier League for their treatment of Everton.

But they are bound by Ofcom rules so we will have to use a word instead of the one planned; seeing we have some of the most creative supporters, I am sure someone will come forward with a chant that is not breaking any Ofcom rules.

I am sure Neville will repeat what he said in his podcast in that "he would be livid if he was an Everton fan and the Premier League had done this to his club".

He went on to say the "Premier League is defunct, and has become a lawless organisation". I think ever since his brother signed for us, he has always had a soft spot for our club, and usually speaks a lot of sense.

Pete Neilson
22 Posted 23/11/2023 at 15:19:33
We truly are a club of “firsts” aren't we.

I'm not aware of any broadcaster ever being taken to task by Ofcom for crowd swearing. Their list of closed cases doesn't show any.

Ofcom typically respond to audience complaints and in 2020 they published a report stating swearing isn't seen as much of an issue in the UK, with discriminatory language being seen as much more offensive.

So a decision is made to mute the crowd to avoid swearing that hasn't yet been uttered during a match that hasn't been played to an audience that hasn't yet complained.

Yeah, nothing dodgy about it at all. Sky and the Premier League are joined at the hip.

23 Posted 23/11/2023 at 15:24:18
Kevin # 18…

How about “Premier League Corrupt as (Donald) Duck”, on a banner? Might be a bit difficult in a chant though.

Danny O’Neill
24 Posted 23/11/2023 at 15:32:06
I'm with Rob.

We can turn this around in the faces of the faceless.

Now is the time to stand up, fight and be counted. On the pitch and from the stands first and foremost. But off the pitch as well.

Stephen, I can't make this evening in London, but will see you Sunday.

Ironically, that is 5 stops away from my local station, whereas Goodison is about 250 miles away!!!

The important thing is we do not disrupt the match in any way. We've already had the incidents with the last games over the last 2 seasons.

The last thing we need is to give the Premier League an excuse to charge us again and dock us more points or have us play matches behind closed doors.

Jack Convery
26 Posted 23/11/2023 at 15:41:56
How about a silent protest at 10 minutes. If everyone remained silent, it would freak the Mancs out both on and off the pitch. Just stand and glare and get those banners waving.

After all, it's the death of football as we know it, that is happening right now. Sly Six favouritism, VARs, Refs looking after their mates - Mike Dean's comment, Awful refs in general, Premier League scared of Sly Six and the Premier League's fixation with destroying EFC.

When the silence ends, really let it rip. Scare the ref, scare the Mancs, let's make them think we are totally nuts and they are not safe being surrounded by us.

Pete Neilson
28 Posted 23/11/2023 at 15:50:19
The 1878s Originals and the funds raised means that all of us at the match will have the opportunity to display our grievance.

There's no suggestion of disrupting the match. We shouldn't let the corrupt Premier League nor their biased broadcasting pal dictate what we do. We don't need their permission.

They'd like to kill our club quietly and ever so politely in the background with no inconvenient public displays. Tough, it's not going to happen.

I don't care what the supporters choose.

The Premier League might dampen down the sound this weekend, but we'll just keep on at them forever now so it doesn't matter that much.

I can't see a single Evertonian ever forgetting this has happened, nor will anyone of us keep quiet at any game in the future, home, away, televised or otherwise.

There's also a protest planned by a guy on X (Twitter) outside the Premier League offices in London tomorrow at 5:30. Check out @EvertonMontreal on X if you're in London and fancy it.

An idea, play them, the EPL & Sky, with banners, in Latin, as is Evertons motto, “ EPL - Brutta Carogna!”
EPL- You Dirty rat!

To Smell a Rat - The EPL! Subodorare qualcosa- EPL!

It’s possibly the start of the end of the EPL, and the structure of the game, in view if City, Chelsea and the others are shown leniency, in view of the gravity of their respective charges, then the game is finished. The EPL, must be brought to investigation, for corruption, and be sued by Everton, and likely other clubs, on these grounds.

City jeez, what’s their immunity gained from? I think we all know. Definitely stinks all the way.

Everton, must play a clever game on and off the park, hence forth, but justice must prevail for Everton FC and Evertonians.


John Raftery
48 Posted 23/11/2023 at 22:52:06
Bobby (43) Sean can’t say anything beyond what Kevin Thelwell and Colin Chong have already said. I am sure he will reiterate that the squad and staff are united and focused now on doing what they need to do on the pitch.

I agree with Howard at (15). All we need to do is leave out the ‘F’ word on Sunday and our voices will be heard on TV loud and clear. Is it not beyond the imagination of someone to create a chant which gets the key message across without the use of language regarded as offensive?

I hope there will be no stupid pitch invasions of any kind, before, during or after the game. That would be a nightmare for the club, potentially giving hostile media outlets a story about football hooliganism rather than fan protest.

The RS once broke the same rule that got Barnsley kicked out of the FA Cup this week.The RS avoided being dumped out of the EFL Cup in 2019 when they fielded an ineligible player during a 2-0 victory over MK Dons - despite Barnsley being expelled from the FA Cup for a similar offence. The Reds were fined £200,000 for using midfielder Pedro Chirivella despite the fact that the Spaniard did not have the required international clearance.

I'll expand on Rob's questions at #17.

Does Sky plan to put the game on a 7-second delay like radio call-in talk shows so no offensive language will ever leak through?

Does they plan to blank out the signs that will inevitably pop up in the stands throughout the game?

Or the t-shirt Dom will display when he pulls up his jersey after his third goal?

Does they plan to blur the lips of the chanting fans so they can't be read?

Do they have "digital" technology to blur the fans' middle digits?

Maybe colorization technology to turn the blue smoke red?

Well, nobody on TW will miss a thing. USA Network will show the game completely uncensored, and I'll share phone video of the best fan moments with Lyndon for posting here.

Great writers and poets are often able to express the emotions of a situation much better than us mere mortals; so how about this from Dylan Thomas in 1937:

Do not go gentle into that good night; but
Rage and Rage and Rage against the dying of the light..."

Sky, along with the other broadcasters, are required to comply with Ofcom rules – which is why, if swearing is picked up on a live game, the commentator receives an instruction to apologise.

Chants that exclude offensive language should be fine. I'm sure that a crowd that came up with “Dissa” as a nickname for Neil Pointon can find a clever and effective form of words.

Peter Mills
69 Posted 24/11/2023 at 18:42:29
I think “Premier League, dirty as muck” would be just as effective, and recognised by fellow fans around the country as a piss-take.

But I don't think Sunday is going to be a day for subtlety or nuance. I have thought a lot about how my 7- and 9-year-old grandsons will hear the “Corrupt as fuck” chant, and I wince at it. Then I remember being at the Leeds game as an 8-year-old in 1964, the most febrile atmosphere I have ever known, and remember how much I loved it.

And I remember the boys' great grandad, and great-great grandad, who fought in wars against injustice of all kinds, and think they would be quietly okay with Goodison's hostility.

No broadcaster has ever been fined by Ofcom for broadcasting an event where there is a crowd swearing. Their rules primarily cover the key participants or the pre-known content.

As an example of how hard it is to be fined, during The Ashes 2019 there were complaints about the Sky Sports commentators swearing multiple times but no fines, no further action.

Worst case for Sky is a few “disgusted of Tunbridge Wells” complaints to Ofcom from RS supporters. The chance of even a slap on the wrist is minimal.

Let's keep this in perspective.

The whole argument is a diversion away from the protest. We'll say what we like and if Sky choose to cut it out so be it.

Sky and the Premier League are joined at the hip. Maybe they'll have to blur out the placards and banners.

For a start, we play Nottm Forest on Saturday 2 December. I'm off to the Caribbean next Thursday for the England cricket tour, with the first game on Sunday 3 December. I'm going to collect as many of these protest cards as I can this Sunday, and take them along with me.

Sky usually cover the England cricket ODIs, so I'll be shoving these cards right in front of their cameras, for the whole of the English viewing public to see.

Maybe even give a cry of “Premier League Corrupt as Fuck” to a nearby camera, but might have to be careful with that, as I don't want to be thrown out! So look out for me!!

Rob, give them one (or, preferably, a load) from me.

Never been a cricket fan, I will make an exception on this occasion, Rob.

I will sponsor you if you do grow a beard, streak across the pitch while jumping over the wickets, while holding a protest card aloft.

Get enough fund me could pay for a few beers for your trip.

Mike @ 68, funny you should remember "Dissa" after all these years.

Neil Pointon is a guest at Goodison this Sunday on the lounge circuit before kickoff (well, at least in The Captain's Table in the Park End).

After leaving Everton in 1990 he went on to play at Man City under Howard and then for Joe Royle at Oldham Athletic, so I'm sure he won't be at all disappointed to see us get one (or a few) over Man Utd.

I've been reading the comments sections on this platform for many many years now.

If our superb fans are looking for a chant they can all join in, without any bad language, I wish to suggest, instead of the usual "Champions League, you're having a laugh" replace with "The Premier League, we know you're corrupt."

Just a thought, let them have it on Sunday. COYB.
