What is FIFA's problem?

How many of us see the poopy as a political statement?

How many of us see the poppy as a sign of respect and reflection for all who died for us and indeed died fighting us?

Fifa bans poppies during match ‘because they are political

The Football Association is in discussions with FIFA over allowing players to show support for the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal when England play Scotland.
Gareth Southgate’s side host their neighbours at Wembley on Armistice Day in a World Cup qualifier.
A report in the Sun claimed FIFA had banned the two teams from displaying poppies on their shirts during the game as political statements are not allowed.


In 2011, FIFA eventually backed down after threatening to ban the England team from wearing poppies in a friendly against Spain, allowing them to display the symbol on black armbands.





An FA statement read: ‘We are working closely with the Royal British Legion once again this year to honour and remember the sacrifices made by those serving in the armed forces.
‘In recent weeks, the FA has led remembrance discussions with FIFA to allow the England team to show its support for the poppy appeal during the World Cup qualifier with Scotland.’
FIFA and the Scottish Football Association were unavailable for comment.

It would be good if the FA stood up to FIFA and we wore the poppies...

But then this is the FA

Excuse my ignorance here but what does the poppy actually stand for?

I thought it was a symbol to the fallen heroes of the 2 World Wars but I have been informed today that its for all the conflicts GB have ever been involved in. If that is the case I can understand playing the Krauts and them Argie tw*ts may cause a little bit bother if wearing the poppy.

I will still be wearing one and I think it should be a personal choice for the footballers regardless of what the bosses want.
