    I don’t know where you got the information from that Justin’s brother John didn’t think he was gay. I saw a documentary featuring Amal where she interviewed her father who seemed to accept that his late brother was gay.

  2. Such a shame her father and Brian Clough were so bigoted.

  3. Poor Amal.

    It must be difficult knowing that her father is a stupid bigot.

  4. Funny that Justin is ignored as the first footballer to come out

    1. I know. Some people especially in the media have short memories. The funny thing is James, some people (again in the media) seem to remember when England last won the World Cup but not who the first openly gay footballer was.

    Such a shame – Amal is such a decent human being and her dad is an ostrich

    I’ve wondered whether his refusal to come to terms with Justin’s sexuality is actually related to John’s ongoing business interests in Nigeria or whether he really is that stupid.
