You really don't grasp it do you. The poppy is not an emblem of a political cause. I do not accept that and I won't be told it is by you. If you had much sense you , as a British citizen, would understand that it isn't too. I am not interested whether a foreign footballer wants to create a politicised image of it and object to it. Yes I want to keep politics and political gesturing out of football. It's not a matter of whether I support them or not. I support racial equality and many other causes some you may think good , some bad. The bottom line is I don't want any of them pushed down my throat at football matches. I come to watch the game and support my team. Finito.
