Bit insensitive from McClean IMO, putting a coffin walking past him on his instagram story
You're at a funeral, leave the phone down

Back on the score sheet today.

Wigan have been on a terrible run of results lately.
It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.
na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na.

Good summary on McClean in MON's autobiography.  

Remembered for his goals against Austria and Wales, what gets noticed less is a few last-ditch tackles in our own box which saved very likely goals - and from an attacking player getting all the way back there - says it all about his character.

“James McClean was at Sunderland when I arrived and I gave him his debut and, honestly, he was a breath of fresh air,” says the 1982 World Cup star.

“He became an instant hero with the crowd and did brilliantly and then the crowd turned against him because of the poppy incident where he didn’t want to wear a poppy or refused to do that and then not only visiting fans would give him stick for that but also the Sunderland fans.

“I have to say, though, that James McClean did marvellously for me both at club level and international level. In fact, in the 2018 World Cup campaign after the Euros in 2016, he took on the mantle as our main man trying to get us to Russia.

“He did brilliantly for me and I have the utmost regard for James McClean.”

one of the tabloids started a campaign around 2008 for all premier league teams to put poppies on their jerseys for remembrance weekend. There were a few that refused, pretty sure one of them was Middlesbrough, but they were castigated for it in the press, so they started doing it the next season

A number of teams had already followed Leicester's lead after 2003 by then though. Am pretty sure it was 2003 when it first appeared.

What a load of crap ! 

Any other player getting racial abuse and the FA go to town on the guilty but James has to "Live " with it !

The chants that he posted on his Instagram 2 weeks ago were disgusting and are clear as day for all to hear but nothing will ever be done about it .


 

I think Stan Collymore is pretty much the only person who's been brave enough to call out the racist abuse and lack of support he's receiving.
Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner.
