LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS - As football is hit by several racism rows we ask does Norfolk have a problem on and off the field?

The problem of racism in football has barely been out of the headlines in recent weeks – and we want your views on the issue.

Norwich City’s Tom Adeyemi found himself at the centre of the debate over the weekend when he was the target of apparent racist abuse in an FA Cup match.

The 20-year-old, on loan at Oldham Athletic and playing against Liverpool at Anfield, seemed to break down after hearing abuse from the famous Kop end.

The issue of race has been a national talking point after Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was handed an eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra.

England captain John Terry is also facing a similar charge for allegedly racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand during a game in October.
