Yeah good on him, hopefully him taking that step will help any others be comfortable in doing the same.

Brave thing to do especially still being young in the game and making his way. Good on him hopefully leads the way for others to follow

Good lad, hope this means start of a change. Feels like general mood already shifted and just needed someone with the guts like him.

Whilst he is brave and all that, wouldn't it have been better for him to remain in the closet. I feel this will affect him mentally with all the abuse he is going to suffer and constantly being in the spotlight.

Another reason why so few homosexuals have come out in sport ?

I only hope he has thick skin - as it’s a cheap shot to try and wind him up.
I seem to remember Graeme le saux getting some stick when he played, and he was not even gay. ( or announced as ).

A while ago though, and times have changed a lot since then (I hope so anyway). Seems he has a very level head and has had a lot of support. Fantastic that he’s felt able to do this.

I think there will always be one or two opposition fans who will think it’s funny to try and get under his skin with that but I think the world has moved on from the way Justin Fashanu was treated for instance. In his case he was also let down by fellow people in the game, this time can see the outpouring of support for him so I think he’ll be fine.

Great to see! This is a huge step, and I absolutely applaud the decision he has made here, and the support he has received from his club. Hopefully he can ignore the minority, and this will be a stepping stone for others to follow...

I would like to agree - but we did not have Facebook and Twitter when fashanu was playing, plus there seems to be a rise in anti social behaviour at football grounds post lockdown, more idiots are surfacing every week. Pitch invasions every week, arrests and trolling online.
Hope I am wrong.

One or two ?

I think he's going to get constant dogs abuse when the Lashers come to Deepdale next year! Hence my earlier comments.

Homophobic abuse is a criminal offence.

So he's best off not coming out as gay? What a bizarre couple of comments! He's clearly got a good level of support around him, we should be living in a world of inclusivity and allowing people to be themselves. Well done Jake, this takes a lot of courage! I'd like to think that whilst there may be a small minority who will try to get a rise, clearly in Preston, people will equally call these fans out, and clubs will act!

Not sure on the specific homophobic abuse laws but it would certainly count as a public order offence or possibly a hate crime wouldn’t it? So grounds to charge any fans if they do have a go at him.

Unfortunately I still reckon this kid will take a fair bit of shit, but he’ll also get a lot more support within the game then he would have done a few years back. The hope would be inspires others and it becomes more normalised.

Do a large number of your fans give black Blackpool players constant dogs abuse when they come to Deepdale then? Or any of their muslim or Jewish players? My guess is no. So why should this be different, or be seen as acceptable by any more then a very small number of utter c*** that the club/police/rest of your fanbase quickly weed out?

Homophobia is just as unacceptable as racism no matter what club the lad plays for, end of.

Yup, hate crime.

Yep and if some Preston fans (just for the record I don’t accept just because they’re rivals it will happen - if it was a Stoke player it wouldn’t happen to them from Vale fans so don’t see why this should be different) were to do this they should do the same if black players are racially abused. First get a message over the tannoy to stop it and if it continues walk off the field and the EFL and FA should be 100% supportive in them doing so.

There will definitely be a large minority at Deepdale who chant about him, there have always been homophobic chants directed at Blackpool. 'Your mum's a crack whore, your dad's a queen' is always sung when we play them, amongst others.

I still don't think homophobia is classed anywhere near the same level as racism by the authorities.

Think the difference here is the lad has come out so it will be seen as direct abuse unlike other chants.

I mean I'm sure we've all heard homophobic stuff at games used as banter or to wind up opposition, I know I have but I feel that this could help change that as tbh there's no place for it even if the target isn't gay.

You would like to think so but maybe not immediately.

Wasn't that started by the prick Fowler?

Yes don't forget anti-Semitism which has reached horrendous levels.

So how exactly have you deduced that I am a 'half wit' and also 'braindead' ?

Kindly please explain!
