The 'yid' t-shirt unriddled

Last week I showed a Portsmouth fan leaving Wembley after the FA Cup whose t-shirt bore the legend: We've got 99 problems but a yid ain't 1.

It was all perfectly innocent, a reader has written in: he must have had the t-shirt done for the semifinal against Tottenham, whose supporters of course are known as Yids: so all the slogan meant was "at least I'm not a Tottenham fan".

But Jewish Chelsea fan Michael Coplans, who the took the original photo, remains unappeased. "I discovered that the actual wording is plundered from a Jay-Z song, I've got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one", he said. "Just as offensive, really."
