  1. If only English goal scorers counted!

    No offence (and now the offensive bit), but my grandad reckons she was a bit of a bike anyway.
  2. Trevor Sinclair

    I reckon he was Jimmy Hill. Chinned a copper didn't he?
  3. O'DOWDA v eriksen

    Didn't get that at all. Andrews definitely likes him.
  4. O'DOWDA v eriksen

    Not one for the purists, as they. O'Dowda most likely on the bench, but maybe on the right? Be very surprised if McClean doesn't start on left. (Cue more poppy outrage). I think McClean is one card away from a ban, and he is prone to a dodgy tackle so maybe Callum will get a run out in the second game. What with Tammy yesterday, it's great to see past and current players representing their respective countries.
  5. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    True. In historical terms WW2 followed shortly the Easter Rising and Ireland War of Independence. A mere 20 or so years later. To join forces with Britain so soon after would have been unthinkable especially with Britain still 'occupying' the North in the eyes of many Republians. The Irish Civil war had only just been fought over the Partition of Ireland, where Irishman were killing each other over the settlement with Britain that lead the establishment of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland as separate states. At the outset of the war no one really knew the extent of the Nazi's final solution for the Jews. Let's not forget Britain's first response was appeasement rather than to go to war with the Nazis. To put this into context, the Falklands War was over 35 years ago. To moan about Ireland's neutrality would be like Argentina embarking on a war with one of their neighbours, and complaining that the people of the Falkland islands weren't coming to help them. Not really sure why I bother replying to these threads, we'll still have the same voices on here telling the Irish what to do and think. No change there then.
  6. Djuric

    Definitely not good in the air.
  7. interesting article on Odowda from Ireland

    @hoxton casual Thanks for posting. Good read.
  8. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    Fair enough. Let agree on the victors rather than the enemy or civilians. http://www.ppu.org.uk/whitepoppy/index.html My main points would be - its the individual's right to choose - red poppies are the fallen from all Bristish conflict - not every irish or that consider themselves to be irish descendent see British involvement in Ireland as benevolent - Celtic have an Irish heritage and many supporters identify with Ireland. - They have every right to choose not to have the poopy of their shirt if the want - Celtic players and supporters can still choose to wear the poppy if they want in their own way. - Im suspicious of anyone telling people what they must do or believe. All sounds a bit fascist. This thread is really a political one not a football one.
  9. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    Not really. Its to remember every fallen British combatant and those that fought alongside them in every campaign including colonial wars. All death in war in sad and regrettable IMHO regardless of which side. Civilian death certainly deserves to be remembered and I don't expect your average german conscript in WW1 was any different to a British one.
  10. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    Sectarianism is about religion. The poppy issue is political. There is a difference. Everyone should have the right to choose.
  11. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    Absolutely wrong. The red poppy is for those from the old Empire that died fighting in every conflict. It is not for all combatants, and not for civilian deaths.* Its not just about defeating the evil Nazis, but those who died upholding the Empire including conflicts on Irish soil. How anyone cannot understand why some of Irish descent or a club that has a strong irish identity would choose not participate in that is astounding. If Germany had taken control of England in either war, how many of you would happily wear a german poppy to remember just the German soldiers that died in their colonial exploits including invading England? *The white poppy remembers all those that lost their life through conflict regardless of which side they fought on and all civilians too.
  12. IMPORTANT - South Stand Display vs Cardiff

    Oh no, @phantom, you having a gallon of cider and a curry tonight?
  13. Why have we stopped starting so well?

    Think we are missing Korey's pressing. We are failing to win the ball as high up the pitch as we were when he plays.
  14. Kane out of Man Utd game

    I hope he'll be OK for the Republic of Ireland game.
  15. Milan Đurić update anyone

    The only time 'man' and 'bun' should appear in the same sentence is if he's eating it! Looking forward to having the big man back.
