Malky Mackay and Iain Moody have been reported to the FA and accused of being racist, sexist and homophobic in a shocking series of text messages dating back to their time together at Cardiff City.
Mackay, the former Cardiff manager, and Moody, the club’s former head of recruitment and now Crystal Palace’s director of football, appeared to be on the verge of being reunited at Selhurst Park on Wednesday, with Mackay thought to be replacing Tony Pulis.
But it is understood Mackay dropped out of the running after Palace learned of the evidence that has been passed to Wembley officials.

THE DAMNING MESSAGES

On the arrival of South Korean international Kim Bo-Kyung
'Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers'

After months of investigation, Sportsmail can reveal the details of two letters sent to the FA outlining explicit and offensive texts. 
These messages came to light after a dawn raid on Moody’s south London home in March this year, as part of Cardiff’s £750,000 investigation into eight controversial transfers.
They engaged London law firm Mishcon de Reya, whose investigators obtained a search order from the High Court to enter Moody’s house in Balham, seizing work computers and phones and taking electronic imagery of evidence. 
They were investigating alleged wrongdoing related to one of these transfers.
Around 70,000 text messages and 100,000 emails were allegedly recovered, including the text and email exchanges that form the basis of letters sent to the FA by Mishcon de Reya, on behalf of Cardiff. 
Under FA rules, Cardiff are required to report any matters which may constitute ‘aggravated misconduct’.
The letters to the FA make reference to the following alleged offensive communications between Moody, Mackay and others:

  • In July 2012, Cardiff signed South Korean international Kim Bo-kyung, but when Moody informed Mackay on July 12 that ‘five of the b******s including the player’ were arriving for talks, the reply from Mackay’s phone was: ‘Fkn chinkys.’ A further message says: ‘Fk it. There’s enough dogs in Cardiff for us all to go around.’


  • In reference to the prominent football agent, Phil Smith, a text states: ‘Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers’. The Israeli club, Maccabi Tel Aviv, are also referred to simply as ‘the Jews’.


  • A football official at another club is referred to as ‘a gay snake’ and ‘the homo’ and someone who is ‘not to be trusted’, while a French player is someone ‘who struck me as an independently minded young homo’.


  • An exchange with a young player who has a female agent makes reference to a sex act and states: ‘I hope she’s looking after your needs,’ the player is then told. ‘I bet you’d love a bounce on her falsies.’


  • On August 16, 2012, a list of players proposed by a French agent is forwarded, stating to Mackay that ‘he needs to rename his agency the All Blacks’. A separate text in reference to a list of French players states: ‘Not many white faces amongst that lot but worth considering.’


  • In a separate exchange a picture entitled ‘Black Monopoly’ is sent, with every square a ‘Go To Jail’ square. Of one African player, it is stated: ‘Doesn’t look like a good cv. And he’s Nigerian.’

MEN AT THE CENTRE OF SCANDAL 
IAIN MOODY: As a graduate in French and Italian, Moody initially found work as a translator for the Italy side during Euro 96, before taking a staff writer’s position at Football365.com.
In 2001, he made the move to Athole Still International, a London-based sports management franchise, then leaving to become Watford’s press officer four years later.
It was at Vicarage Road that Moody first linked up with Malky Mackay, forming a close professional relationship that saw him soon promoted to football operations manager.
When Mackay left for Cardiff in 2011, Moody followed, this time as head of recruitment. Cardiff reached the League Cup final in 2012 and were promoted to the Premier League a year later, but amid a protracted bust-up between Mackay and the club’s controversial owner, Vincent Tan, Moody was dismissed in October 2013. He was replaced by 23-year-old Kazakh Alisher Apsalyamov, who was at the club on work experience and a friend of Tan’s son.
Crystal Palace were quick to appoint Moody as their sporting director, with a remit to improve their club infrastructure and to address weaknesses in player recruitment.

Sportsmail understands Mackay and Moody were informed Cardiff were in possession of these messages earlier this year. At the same time the pair were informed of the findings from the club’s investigation into the eight controversial transfers — totalling around £50million — in summer 2013.
After his sacking last December, Mackay launched a £7.5m legal claim against Cardiff’s owner Vincent Tan for compensation and wrongful dismissal. But in May, Mackay suddenly dropped the claim and issued an apology to Tan. In a statement, Mackay said: ‘Today I have reached a settlement agreement dropping all claims I have made against Cardiff City Football Club. I did not want to be in litigation and believe that it is in the best interests of all parties to have a clean break and move on.
‘The club’s owner Mr Vincent Tan invested heavily in the club and supported our decisions in our push for promotion to the Premier League. Without him this would not have been possible. If I have caused any offence to anyone during this time, especially to Vincent Tan, then I apologise without reservation.’
Moody had been fired as Cardiff’s head of recruitment two months before Mackay’s departure. On the same day in May he also issued an apology to Tan. ‘Wherever mistakes were made during my time at the club, I wish to apologise for any part that I played in them, and for any offence I might have caused, particularly to Vincent Tan and all City fans,’ said Moody.

Out of the blue: And Moody issued a statement to Tan on the exact same day as Mackay. The current Palace director of football was also advised to disclosed details of messages but declined

MEN AT THE CENTRE OF SCANDAL 
MALKY MACKAY: A powerful centre-back with Queen’s Park, Celtic, Norwich, West Ham and Watford — winning five Scotland caps — he began his managerial career at Championship club Watford in 2009, after Brendan Rodgers resigned. He spent two years at Vicarage Road, safeguarding them from relegation, before moving to Cardiff in 2011.
In his first season in charge of the Welsh club, Mackay, 42, guided them to their first ever League Cup final, which they lost to Liverpool on penalties and finished sixth in the Championship, though they missed out on promotion through the play-offs.
Still, 2012’s heartache proved to be short-lived, as Cardiff were promoted to the Premier League as champions the following year. Despite his successes, however, Mackay’s relationship with club owner Vincent Tan became increasingly strained.
The Malaysian businessman was reportedly dissatisfied with Mackay’s transfer dealings. Mackay was dismissed as Cardiff manager in December 2013.

Two months earlier, Moody had also been ordered by Cardiff’s investigators to allow them access to his office at the Crystal Palace training ground in Beckenham, Kent. Mackay and Moody were encouraged by Cardiff’s lawyers to disclose the details of the racist, sexist and homophobic text messages to the FA. Ultimately, Cardiff believe they had no choice but to send a report to the FA.
Tan was widely and heavily criticised for sacking Mackay, a manager who was popular with Cardiff supporters, having guided the club into the Barclays Premier League for the first time.
There has been a long-running dispute between the two, with the Cardiff owner suggesting the club paid way above the market value for a number of players. The club spent £50m spent on the eight players that summer, but Tan believes the true market value should have been nearer £30m. The signings included £10m striker Andreas Cornelius, full back John Brayford and midfielder Gary Medel.
Tan and Cardiff executive chairman Mehmet Dalman enlisted the services of Mishcon de Reya, whose specialists represent a number of clubs in the Premier League.
Their investigation has resulted in around £3m being withheld in payments due to agents in deals authorised during Mackay and Moody’s tenure at the club.

Under consideration: The transfer of Peter Odemwingie to Cardiff from West Brom was also investigated

MEN AT THE CENTRE OF SCANDAL
VINCENT TAN: The bank clerk who became an insurance salesman. The insurance salesman who bought a McDonald’s chain. The McDonald’s store owner who built an empire. The story of Vincent Tan, 62, is fittingly colourful.
He bought a McDonald’s franchise in 1980, using the money from rapid expansion to purchase Sports Toto in 1985, a gambling company. Unprecedented success on both fronts allowed him to venture into several more industries, most notably founding the Berjaya Group, which runs the gamut over Malaysian property development and holidays. In addition, he owns two football clubs, Cardiff City, relegated last season, and FK Sarajevo in Bosnia.

The law firm are understood to have discovered a series of papers relating to certain transfers that were not included in official transfer documents. Investigators also discovered the authorisation of payments to agents for deals in which there was no evidence of their involvement. One £600,000 transfer included an additional £600,000 fee to an agent.
The transfer of Peter Odemwingie from West Bromwich Albion to Cardiff for £2.25m in September 2013 was among those investigated. Odemwingie was represented by Rob Segal and it is understood the two men are now in a legal dispute over the payment of agents’ fees, with the Nigeria striker’s subsequent move to Stoke also part of that dispute.
Some payments due in the Odemwingie move to Cardiff have been withheld by the club.
Segal insisted he was in a dispute with a 33-year-old in a case now heading for an FA tribunal.

Spygate: Sportsmail understands two Cardiff players colluded with Moody when Cardiff played Crystal Palace

TIMELINE OF THE INCREDIBLE CARDIFF ROW 
May 2010: Vincent Tan is the new owner of Cardiff City.
June 2011: After Dave Jones is sacked following a Championship play-off semi-final defeat, Malky Mackay is appointed manager.
February 2012: Mackay leads Cardiff to their first League Cup final, which they lose to Liverpool on penalties following a 2-2 draw after extra time.
May 2012: Cardiff lose in the play-off semi-final again, but Mackay retains his post.
Tan controversially decides that the club’s shirts should be changed from blue to red and the traditional bluebird emblem swapped for a dragon — causing huge unrest among the Cardiff supporters.
September 2012: Tan replaces the club’s chief executive, Alan Whiteley (left), with associate Simon Lim.
April 2013: Cardiff secure promotion to the Premier League, finishing top of the Championship.
August 2013: After around £35million is spent in preparation for life in the top flight, Tan publicly tells Mackay to ensure there is a positive return on his investment.
October 2013: Mackay’s head of recruitment, Iain Moody, with whom he had worked at Watford, is replaced by 23-year-old Kazakh Alisher Apsalyamov (right), reportedly on work experience, although he is unable to take the job on visa grounds.
December 16: Cardiff beat West Brom in the Premier League and Mackay suggests to the Press that he will need three players in the January transfer window. Lim releases a statement on behalf of Tan that criticises Mackay for his comments and asserts that he will not be given ‘a single penny’ for transfers.
December 19: Mackay is emailed by Tan, informing him to either resign from his position or be sacked.
December 22: Cardiff release a club statement that Mackay will remain as manager ‘for the foreseeable future’.
December 26: Cardiff lose 3-0 at home to Southampton, as fans stage a protest against Tan.
December 27: Mackay is eventually dismissed as Cardiff manager.

Not on: Cardiff are set to launch a legal claim over the incident last season

Sportsmail understands that in a week when the Premier League fined Palace for an alleged leak of Cardiff team information ahead of their match last season, investigators also seized documentation in the raids that reveals that two Cardiff City players were providing Moody with sensitive information about the club after he had left.
On Wednesday afternoon Moody was contacted by Sportsmail and he said: ‘I can’t make any comment at all. It’s obviously a legally privileged position at the moment.’ Mackay was unavailable for comment despite numerous attempts to contact him.
Moody was understood to be in discussions with Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish on Wednesday afternoon.
The FA refused to confirm any details regarding the letters, and Cardiff also said they would not make any comment on the matter.
In a further twist, it emerged that Cardiff are now set to launch legal action against Crystal Palace and Moody in the wake of the spying scandal. 
Reports in Wales say club officials sent legal letters to the Premier League club on Wednesday, along with Moody, informing them that they intend to pursue a claim now that the Premier League has issued its fine.

Disgraceful behaviour but anyone want to bet that these will not be the only ones? Football (and some would say society in general) is full of racist, sexist and homophobic men. 

We are a gentle forum, but just look at some of the posts on Facebook and Twitter and on football message boards across the world, to see how it reflects these disgsuting views in private, when people think they are anonymous. The 'lads' culture in sport, and especially football, encourages this sort of casual, ignorant attitude.

These two are the tip of the iceberg IMO, and I imagine a lot of people are now deleting emails and texts like mad. Too bad for them that they are not that easy to erase, unlike their careers once these come to light. 

Mind I do find it ironic that it is the Daily Mail, (well known for its tolerance to immigrants and foreigners! tongue ) that has exposed them.

Yes H the joke going round is that after reading the emails The Mail have offered Malky the editors job.

Without doubt racism, sexism and homophobia are still rife to varying degrees but you, or I, would have thought that these otherwise intelligent men would have had a lot more sense than they have shown.

I have a feeling that the isms may be the least of their worries now their transfer dealings are being looked at.

Trouble is Syd I don't think they are intelligent. I think many footballers are still badly educated and the culture that surrounds them in football clubs allows this sort of behaviour to thrive. 

At the end of the day the simplest way to stay out of trouble is not to think these things in the first place, and that comes with education, education, education.  Mad  I think it is changing and definitely Academy players have lessons in race relations and what some would call political correctness, although I would call it being tolerant and socially aware. There is a general understanding these days that young footballers need to broaden their horizons generally, read more, do more for others and gain an understanding of the world outsde of their narrow viewpoint and sphere of experience.

In any event I have two main rules I try to live by: as my old mum used to say, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing! And never, ever write anything about anyone in a letter, text, email or on social media that you would not say to that person's face, or your grandmother!  

I bet Malky Mackay and Ian Moody wish they had followed these rules now  Evil or Very Mad

Talking about racism, did anyone see the ITV Look North bits about tracking DNA, been on each night, part of the kick racism out of sport initiative.

Last night it was Garry Bennett and Pam Royal and their DNA and it seems that Bennos DNA goes back to early man and we are all related to him. When told Benno said,"Does that mean I am going to have people come knocking on my door", with that smile of his.

It makes the point that we are all in some way related to each other, whatever colour we now are.

LMA statement saying that it was just "friendly text message banter", rightly being condemned on all sides as a massive own goal for football in this country.

Very reminiscent of other institutions that investigate themselves, they're always blind to their own failings.

This illustrates what I have said many times, it is exactly this sort of casual attitude to abuse, that perpetuates it. These people should know better yet don't seem to understand it even IS abuse!

I would say PR is not a strong point in the macho world of football, its OK to insult just about everyone in one fell swoop as long as you say sorry, it was just a light bit of humour.

I can hear the woman and Jew who they insulted laughing from hear and gay and black footballer will  be rolling in the aisles.

[size=30]Malky Mackay texts: Cardiff want LMA chief Richard Bevan to resign[/size]
Cardiff City have called for League Managers' Association chief Richard Bevan to resign after the organisation described offensive text messages sent by Malky Mackay as "friendly banter".
The LMA apologised after provoking criticism from anti-discrimination campaigners over its statement.
However, Cardiff maintain that Bevan's position is now untenable.
The FA is investigating Mackay's comments as part of a dossier submitted by Cardiff alleging misconduct.
The LMA's original statement on behalf of Mackay said that two text messages sent by the former Cardiff boss to ex-Bluebirds colleague Iain Moody were "disrespectful of other cultures", but defended them as "friendly text message banter".
[th]Reaction to the LMA's original statement[/th]
Ex-Blackburn striker Jason Roberts on Twitter: "LMA actually wrote this. They are actually being serious! Somebody drafted that... WOW!"
Former Brentford and Torquay manager Leroy Rosenior: "If the LMA are going back into the dark ages to support people then I might have to withdraw my support."
Ex-England striker Stan Collymore on Twitter: "Disgraceful. Institutional acceptance of the 'banter' of casual racism."
Daily Telegraph's Henry Winter: "The LMA look like bumbling dinosaurs. The statement is a missive that should be filed beneath contempt."
"We find it entirely reprehensible that the LMA should put out a statement which seeks to dismiss deeply offensive racist comments as 'friendly banter'," the club said in a statement.
"If that is the view held by the LMA, as appears from its statement, we consider that Richard Bevan's position is untenable and we call for his resignation."
The club also accused the LMA of failing to fulfil its duties.

Iain Moody and Malky Mackay were both sacked by Cardiff City in 2013
"The LMA is the representative voice of managers, and one of its major aims is to 'encourage honourable practice, conduct and courtesy in all professional activity'," Cardiff said.
"Regrettably, we feel that the LMA has done no such thing in its representation of Mr Mackay and Mr Moody."
Troy Townsend, the education and development manager of anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out, also criticised the LMA.
"[I was] more disappointed than anything else," he told BBC Radio 5 live. "It took the focus away from Malky and the alleged texts and put the focus on the LMA and their support and backing towards him.
"I'm not sure how it got through. It's made everyone's work in this industry really difficult. It just makes it seem that what happened is acceptable."

In its latest statement on Friday, the LMA said it "apologises for some of its wording which was inappropriate and has been perceived to trivialise matters of a racist, sexist or homophobic nature".
"It is beyond argument that any comments that are discriminatory, even used in private, are totally unacceptable," the statement continued.
"The LMA remains absolutely aware of our responsibility to the game and to promote and uphold the highest standards of behaviour."
Mackay, who lost his job at Cardiff in December, was thought to be favourite for the vacant manager's job at Crystal Palace until the story emerged.
He says he will fully co-operate with any FA investigation and "looks forward to putting the record straight".
Moody resigned as Crystal Palace sporting director on Thursday, but has yet to comment on the story.
He was sacked as Cardiff's head of player recruitment last October after a row with owner Vincent Tan over transfer activity and joined Palace a month later.
