    Rememberance Day

    On Sunday 14th November the nation will stand silent and pay respects to those who have fallen in the great wars and other conflicts. The men and women who have sacrificed their own lives for this country in order to create a better world - have not drifted from the memory of decent people who will show respect for the efforts of those that have fallen. Remembrance Sunday gives all communities and gatherings of decent folk to mark this solemn occasion with a minute of silence. At sporting events and other occasions acknowledge together the efforts of countries like the United Kingdom to stand up against tyranny to protect our own freedoms, no matter what the cost. Chelsea FC has been affiliated with the Pensioners (Ex Servicemen who have been disabled) for many years, actually even adopting the name as their nickname for many years . Chelsea FC adidas home kit pays tribute to their veteran supporters - the Chelsea pensioners, who are famed for their red coats, with the inclusion of a red trim on their traditional blue strip.
    Let us all of us who use the message boards stand together and pay tribute to those who have served this country in the past and present.

    Celtic have apologised for an anti-poppy banner that was displayed during the 9-0 win over Aberdeen at Parkhead on Saturday.
