McKay and Whelan are a match made in heaven it seems:

The Jews don’t like losing money. Nobody likes losing money,” Whelan told the Guardian. “Do you think Jewish people chase money a little bit more than we do? I think they are very shrewd people. I think Jewish people do chase money more than everybody else. I don’t think that’s offensive at all.”

"We’re all against racism in football," Whelan continued. "If any Englishman said he has never called a Chinaman a chink he is lying. There is nothing bad about doing that. It is like calling the British Brits."

This is brilliant, because "Chinaman" is ALSO offensive

I was at an event a few years ago with my Dad. Dave Whelan was there. He'd a chat with us and he kept calling my Dad "Paddy". I didn't find it offensive cause that's my Dads name.

It's only offensive if you say Ching Chong before it.

Never really knew what those handicap bets meant, what does it mean if it's a +?
