  1. Would usually agree with these sentiments but this belter should be held to account for his actions, both legally and socially. Rightly or wrongly, he is a role model. His actions carry weight. Another creative player who sits on the bellend spectrum, I wonder if theres any social science on that phenomenon? From Best and Gazza to Grealish, Madison and our very own Tomlin.
  2. I was asking a straightforward question, chill out.
  3. Likewise, Scottish independence. It really should have been called Engxit as it's going to destroy the union. Other than the fact the Welsh and Scots usually bring home (pre 2015) labour MP's, I'm all for self determination for all. United Ireland, independent Scotland, Wales and England.
  4. Are we maintaining that it was Lee who took us there in the first place? Just asking.
  5. ******* hell fire, you do love twisting things don't you. I don't really know why I'm justifying my views to some no mark on the internet, but here we are. I fully understand what the poppy means, i have the privilege of working with military personnel and the remembrance services held at work are tear jerking and magnificent all at the same time. My grandfather served in the second world war along with his brothers. He had shell shock until he passed away, scarred by the horrors of the front line. Because of my odious inability to not correct idiots on FB, I spend much of November calling out far-right idiots who do misuse the poppy. The irony being it was their politics so many died trying to halt. Rather than being one of the professionally offended, why not calm yourself and at least try to understand the point being made. I have already admitted that the use of swastika was ill-advised, but the point was not at all a difficult one to understand or accept. The Poppy means different things to different people, it is a British thing and for an Irish Republican who's family has been affected by British military aggression, I can understand his views on it. **** I wish I'd never bothered posting now, people like you are the actual worst.
  6. To be fair, as I posted it I thought "I wish there was a better, less offensive symbol of the German military I could use" But I couldn't think of any. But if you want to carry on with the pedantry rather than taking on board the (obviously poorly put together) general theme of the argument then be my guest. Christ, I hoped the little disclaimer would be enough to ward off this absolute misnomer of a tangent.
  7. That's what it means to me, personally. It isn't what it means to some, I'm afraid.
  8. Well, I guess you've missed the way the far right have hijacked the symbol and altered what it means to many people during your exile in Cuba. What it was intended to mean and what it has come to represent are two very different things.
  9. I didn't, you absolute tool. I work with the military on a daily basis. I am well aware of their sacrifices and their brilliance and I do more to keep them safe than you, so I'm quite content with my contribution to our country. Are you?

    Ye Weichao

    It was via FM that I found him, and their database is pretty well researched.
  11. Oh yeah don't get me wrong, he's a bellend. No need to go in as hard as he does and clearly enjoys winding people up. But I can respect his decision not to wear a poppy. It would be exactly the same as Brit playing in Germany being forced to wear a Swastika, (I'm not comparing the poppy to a swastika and wear mine with pride, before some melt gets their knickers in a twist)

    Ye Weichao

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye_Weichao Random Question, but anyone know this guys story? I am a season in to a City FM save where I can only use club trained players, (the return of Bobby, Joe, Rolando, Herbie, Maddox and Cole Skuse are my only signings) and thus fella, Ye Weichao cropped up as a Chinese youth player in the mid 00s. Odd one.
  13. Don't get it, long enough has passed for us to be able analyse it rationally. We had no place being there, ever. A very quick read through the history of home rule etc etc puts us to shame. Them too, of course but I don't see how you can argue against us being the aggressors over several centuries.
  14. It's not exactly a period of history that we British can look back on with any sense of pride...
  15. Work laptop on one side of the desk, football manager on the other... Got asked a question in a Skype meeting today but I was too engrossed in the FA Trophy final to notice
