McClean - You Reap What You Sow
Mackem James McClean continues his dislike of all things British ... but has called in the British constabulary for help. Says it all, really.
Police have opened an investigation into allegations that the Mackem winger has been the target of death threats.
Well knock me down with a shit stick!
The 23-year-old was criticised for his decision not to wear a Remembrance Day poppy on his shirt during the Black Cats' 2-1 defeat at Everton last weekend.
The Republic of Ireland international subsequently received a mixed response from the travelling Sunderland supporters when he was introduced as a second-half substitute during Sunday's 3-1 victory at Fulham.
It is understood that threats have been directed towards McClean on Twitter, and he has now cancelled his Twitter account.
A statement released by Northumbria Police read: "Police are carrying out inquiries following a report of threats made on social networking sites.
"Officers have spoken to Sunderland AFC and inquiries are ongoing."
Martin O'Neill: "James will deal with it (the booing). I think it is to do with the issue last week, it's a free choice in this world. James has lived with a lot of things - he's getting death threats too now so that doesn't help."
Yep it certainly IS "a free choice in this world" ... so why is he making a meal that a large percentage of people in this country (not just football fans) ... think he is a NOB HEAD?
