"There's no place for it. It's not fair, it's not right and it's not correct"

Paul Cook says that it is important for Blues to join the rest of English football in making a stand against abuse on social media platforms.

From tomorrow (Friday) at 15.00 until Monday at 23.59, clubs throughout the country will unite for a social media boycott in response to the ongoing and sustained discriminatory abuse received online by players and many others connected to football.

The timing of the boycott will cover a full weekend of fixtures in both the men's and women's professional game.

During the social media 'switch off', the Club will not be posting on official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn and TikTok accounts.

"There's no place for it," Paul told iFollow Ipswich. "It's not fair, it's not right and it's not correct.

"There's no place for any kind of discrimination or racism, least of all on places where people can be hidden or stay anonymous. 

"Will we ever stamp it out? Who knows. But certainly making a stand against it is something that must be totally backed by everyone."
