Perhaps the club could get cloth poppy badges to be worn on the team shirts for next sundays game?

Think they should have a minutes silence and think it would be honoured by both sides of the city divide!

Many good Irishmen died fighting Hitler and his fascist armies, alongside good Englishmen and good men (and women) of dozens of other nations. The poppy isn't a nationalistic symbol, but a symbol of remembrance for those who gave their lives to stop Hitler and his kind. It's very easy to try to drive wedges between people, LUFC1. Not so easy to build bridges. Remarks such as yours aren't worth saying.

The poppy is a WWII thing? That's a new one... Anyway, I could post and post and post about this, but I'd rather keep to the football.

There ought to be deanovilla. There are in life things more important than football, and a minutes silence in tribute to our war dead is a very small price to pay for our modern day lifestyle.

I'm not sure anybody said the poppy was a WWII thing, DV. It is a symbol of remembrance for servicemen from all conflicts now. My reference to Hitler was about those who believe that no Irishmen died fighting Hitler while the Republic remained neutral, which seemed to be what LUFC1 was referring to in a sideways fashion.

there should most definately be a minutes silence at match on sunday. be disgusted if there aint one,there are far more important things than football and this is one of them. LUFC i think you will find MON does actually usually wear one and sunday should be no different.remember them. lacking a bit of respect there Londonderryvillan quite obviously.

Bobthebuilder your spot on. Northern Irish lost their lives fighting, the neutral R.O.I. suffered bombing attacks by the Luftwaffe.

Personally I find the whole poppy thing a bit tasteless when we're embroiled in yet another futile foreign adventure. When will we ever bloody learn?
