Premier League stars to come out as gay

An England international and another Premier League star to come out as gay.

Can only be a good thing, although will be interesting to see how this turns out. Things have thankfully moved on since Justin Fashanu came out in 1990, but here we are 25 years on and no other professional still plying his trade has felt comfortable enough to come out.

Reaction should be one of either total un bothered or friendly banter. Both would show progress.

In fact remember the friendly banter we gave Matty Taylor re: Will Young. Unlikely it was true but I think that friendly apptiavh shows we really wouldn't have cared if it was. Hence felt we could make fun of it as it wasn't an issue and that's what English guys do, especially football fans, make friendly jokes about our differences that we don't consider significant differences.

let's hope everyone's mature enough to at least ignore it and leave the abuse out. Good luck to them.

I see your point, but I highly doubt Walcott would be coming out as gay in the middle of a marriage.

This. Anything that can be used against a player will be used to rip them to shreds but the more that come out, the easier for others to follow.

I'm pleased to say that, over the years at Palace, players have been routinely abused for the shittiness of their skill, and not for their sexual orientation.

Tbf there's been a couple of gay players who if not 'out' have not exactly gone to great lengths to hide their sexuality and outside of a few schoolboy sniggers no one really has cared.

This might well be true but there certainly aren't many if any that I can think of that have been open enough that a whole crowd would know. It will be interesting to see what does get chanted and shouted generally.

Well apart from Fash and Hitzlsperger - the latter coming out once retired - there has been none. So despite wanting to feel the game is ok with it, there quite clearly is an issue of sorts. I think the sooner these players do reveal and more follow, the quicker it will disappear as a non issue, once the initial hullabaloo and inevitable jibes are shouted down by the evolved majority.

Why does anyone have to "announce" their sexual orientation? What's next, players announcing they're into bondage or like wearing their wife's knickers?

Anyway it's clearly Raheem Sterling, just look at the way he runs...

I honestly don't think anyone will give a toss. As you say, Hitzlsperger was the second one and I had no recollection of him either as a footballer or a homo.

It will be as memorable as finding out Frank Lampard is left handed. (I don't know if he is)

I totally agree with everyones sentiment: who cares/non issue; but the fact that they feel they have to 'come out' kind of suggests otherwise. Yes, the average guy who can string a intelligible sentence together on a forum is not going to flinch, but perhaps colleagues in an alpha male dominated changing room will?

Didn't a player accuse Bamford of being gay, in a hideously derogatory fashion might I add. Sad that nobody has openly come out as gay in football since Justin Fashnu in the 90s, hopefully this will turn a corner, homophobia in football really needs to be dealt with I. The same fashion as racism.
