I'm starting this page up to make a contribution towards any monitory fine that may be imposed upon the English Football Association by FIFA.
By today bringing sanctions against the FA, FIFA have shown themselves to be totally none understanding to the respect that wearing the poppy actually symbolises and why the FA and the Scottish FA actually took the decision to ignore the advice given to them before the game.
Many will say the FA can afford a fine and why should I contribute towards it but as and England Fan and as a patriotic man I will quite gladly contribute to any fine FIFA choose to impose, if they choose to impose a points fine then whatever monies raised can go towards grass roots football schemes of the FA's choice.
The poppy signifies rememberance of many fallen soldiers from many different nations and for FIFA to think that it has political contations really just shows them to be completely out of touch, they should hang their heads in shame following the route they have today and I hope that other English.
From a proud English Man
