    absolutley disgusting that a football club is actively supporting revanchist Croatian fascism.

    if Dinamo go ahead and sanction this they should be punished by UEFA.

    Politics and football should always be kept at arms length from each other. Was watching a documentary on TV3 about the 'soccer war' between El Salvador and Honduras an example that should be served to all who wish to indulge in this heady mix.

    Nice dig gonzo. Go to the Brandywell. Tell me what political symbolism is present in the ground. And wise up.

    All my time at the brandywell I've seen about 5 kids total wearing Celtic tops. I don't think they should be allowed in to be honest, but we don't have a dress code set in stone.

    Jesus Gonzo - has the hospital cut your prescription or something ? Your complete and utter obsession with portraying Derry City as being a "Republican club" (your words) is becoming nothing more than a deranged rant/axe to grind at every opportunity. It's pitiful and painful to watch.

    Perhaps if you'd actually ever set foot in theg Brandcywell you might be in some vague position to comment on the issue.

    Yet another thread ruined by your pathological fantasies. Now go lie-down in a dark room......

    Though I do prefer Donegal.
    All well and good - but for the umpeenth time, Derry Fans successully keep their individual politics out of football. No one ever said "our community" doesn't have political views. We're just not as insecure as Linfield, Cliftonville, Celtic and Rangers fans that we need to parade our views at football matches.

    Please, please, please try to get your head around this......
