Fifa fines. Well, this is awkward

249

It will surprise none of you that Fifa degreed the poppy to be an inappropriate political symbol for a football shirt, or to be paraded at a game. We’ve been slightly ahead of the game in Scotland, where the innocuous symbol which was conceived to raise money to aid destitute, often debilitated, former servicemen eat and live, has transformed into a symbol of pseudo-nationalism.

When you politicise the poppy you rob it of its universality. Today’s symbol is lesser because of this that those sold in previous decades. You can argue what political symbols are right and wrong if you have time to waste, but what is now beyond dispute is that in Britain, we pick and choose what political symbols are regarded as appropriate for football games.

Fifa and Uefa indulge in no such ambiguity.

Delighted at news that we will rest more players tonight. It will have the result of recharging some deflated batteries as well as giving opportunity to players who will benefit from the game.

  7. BLANTYRETIM IS PRAYING FOR THE KNOX FAMILY

     

     

    He’s a middy for sure!

     

     

    Well let’s see how far along the road he is, looking forward to see Liam playing I haven’t been so impressed with him as some of the support.

     

     

    Summer ye want coffee or tea :)))

    Starry

     

    I’m a fan of young Liam’s, think he has the dig required to make it. He is still only a kid

  9. Surprised that Jozo is playing as its been noted that he struggles tae play 2 games in 1 week. In saying that there is zero chance he will play on the plastic pitch at Hamilton, so this could be his last until hogmanay.

     

     

    No surprised that Ragnar Lothbrok is benched as he has admitted his form has dropped a bit.

    Cheers pal. You should contribute more often. It would lift the tone. And Jeez it needs lifting.

    I have noticed a few digs at me re the streams.

     

    A while back you and Brogan I think told the blog about the crap server that Celtic used to stream Celtic TV, sorry if it wasn’t you, bottom line it doesn’t work for me, it’s absolute crap and I will not pay for a crap service, if it was on par with the dodgy streams I would use it, but it’s no even close, Summa told the blog today that he has prob the best broadband out there yet he has mega probs, it’s obviously the server that is the problem, but posters still get their digs in against people who actually contribute to the club unlike the parasites who only take from the club and crap on the supporters.
