Poppy-cock

My first (and most possibly last) opinion piece on football…

So FIFA have banned the England squad from wearing poppies – citing it to be a “political statement”.

So remembering the fallen once a year is suddenly a massive political agenda? How absurd and quite frankly sad.

Even more absurd according to the press today the Germans are cool with it – so what’s the problemo?!

Some big cheese at the German FA is quoted as saying:

‘I cannot imagine we would have any objection to the idea of England’s players having poppies on their shirts. It just wouldn’t be a problem to us. It wouldn’t be an issue.’

Let’s all remember the good old England v Germany rivalry never let the war get in the way of a good kick about before, so let’s not start now.

In a nut shell – pipe down FIFA.

Danke.
