 Matic....
Topic Originator: DRFC_no1  
Date:   Mon 5 Nov 22:07

...gives his reason as to why he wont be donning the poppy on Sunday in the Manchester derby.

Completely valid reasoning IMO and was even backed by the Royal Legion who said the poppy is a personal choice.

What I want to know is - will he receive the same kind of reaction as James Mclean does this time every year?

If not, why so harsh on the later?

Totally respect his reason. I won’t wear a poppy either.

Matic will receive exactly the same level of abuse as every other United player on Sunday, poppy or no poppy. ;-)

Check out the Rangers forum and you’ll find that Matic has received some utterly horrific abuse, no where near the levels of McLean of course but that’s not surprising. “Dock his wages”, “go back to Serbia”, etc etc .

To be expected, sadly - Matic is not an Irish Catholic, so he'll be a secondary target. Everyone's decision to wear or not to wear a poppy should be respected and no one should feel under pressure to conform or even worse, be subjected to abuse because of the choice they make.

It's really sad that this time of year, when folk have an opportunity to remember those who lost their lives while serving their country, is hijacked by those with a sectarian agenda, concerning a 300+ year old battle in some remote corner of Ireland. I mean, who really gives a stuff?

Why don't these people take their cultural Irish baggage and fek off back to Ireland? Go away, you're not wanted here!

Everyone has the right to wear or not wear a poppy, and they shouldn't have to explain their reason behind either decision imo.

The poppy debate is beyond tedious. Wear it if you want to, if you don’t then that’s fine. It’s as simple as that. The media bring it up year in year out to stir sh*t.

We got style and we got grace

"I hear your a racist now father"


I hope you were joking, shp. That certainly wasn't meant to be a racist comment but I can see how it could be interpreted as such. It would be supremely ironic for me, a native Italian living in my adopted Scotland for almost my whole life, to be racist. For clarity, I was talking only about those who cling on to their obnoxious sectarian agenda and regularly label each other as Orange or Fenian bassas.....

Strange that he had wore it every other year while playing in the UK. But at the end of the day it’s a personal choice for everyone.

Phew! I was wondering why you called me father. I did go out with a gorgeous girl from Saline about 40 years ago,

Er.... how old are you now, Puma, my son? :-)

Not that strange. I change my opinions over a whole range of things all the time.

We were on a Caribbean cruise back in November 2011 - poppies were very evident on the islands with a British historical link.
