    Disgraceful card received. This stuff usually ignored by the authorities wrt McLean abuse.

    I recall Colin Murray having a dig at McLean after MOTD 2 over the poppy - clearly aimed at stirring up the hate.

    Wasn't Murray 'kicked out' himself for having too much of a mind of his own? I actually liked him but don't remember the McClean dig.

    Not sure why he left match of the day, but he left Talksport after they were bought by NewsCorp, who also own the sun, and as a Liverpool fan he couldn't in good conscience stay there.

    Interesting, never knew that. Piece on his MOTD departure here - https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/n...-29040166.html

    It is understood Murray was looked upon as irritating by some of the Match of the Day pundits who felt he was there to ask them questions rather than offer his opinions on matches and players, which he regularly did.

    I love the fact, that the author has so much poison in him, that he actually writes the whole way through and then on the back of the card

    It was just before the closing credits. I was surprised the BBC was willing to give room for such a personal dig - especially from someone from the north of Ireland.

    It's more likely the MOTD pundits were discomfited by this annoying paddy who didn't know his place in the proper order of things, rather than the BBC taking issue with Murray's indirect stab at the lone dissident's gesture against the glorification of all those who died in the 'great' cause of british imperialism.

    At the time I thought McClean should have ignored him as Murray habitually winds people up with no great ulterior motive outside the actual wind up. McClean got wound up, Murray has a wee chuckle.

    That was Yaya toure, and it was his agent agitating for a move. Turned out City had remembered his birthday.
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Crouch says Stoke dressing room respected McClean’s poppy stance but doesn’t equate his abuse to racism levelled at certain English players recently

    Maybe I'm over-reacting but I think it's disgraceful that Crouch got away with that on Irish radio. Demonstrated to me why Sean O'Rourke is, in my view, one of the most bland and average broadcasters on the radio and I think a more spiky host would have pulled Crouch up on it.

    Again, I may he over-reacting and maybe misinterpreting Crouch but how is Bulgarians abusing black Englishmen racism and Englishmen abusing Catholic Irishmen not? If that's what he was implying then he's very ignorant.

    I think he's saying that 'hating black people' is not the same as 'hating someone who doesn't wear a poppy'. Obviously the situation is more nuanced than that unfortunately.
