    Controversial, perhaps.

    Thoughts?

    Perhaps sensible, but I don't like the idea of changing the side just to appease some horrible, thick, violent racists

    Nothing to do with appeasing them, why would we??? Its more about protecting Shaqiri from some horrible, thick and violent racists

    It's a sensible decision.

    Shaqiri isn't exactly innocent, he's liable to start something with his double headed eagle celebration like what he done at the world cup.

    Fuck them. Club should have given him a Kosovo flag to plant in the centre circle.

    More likely about protecting our brand in the Balkans.

    Would have loved to see his celebration but it would surely put our fans and players at risk if so.

    How come Lovren's allowed to go then? Isn't he in the same sort of danger because he's Croatian? I know who I'd back to keep his composure out of the two and it isn't Dejan.

    Not pissing off our Serbian supporters by putting a Kosovar nationalist who has been known to make inflammatory gestures while on the pitch.

    We're not likely to need him to win, hence leaving him at home.

    I wasn't being particularly serious though.

    Can't risk losing the cash cow that is our huge Serbian fanbase, although they might be useful if we require some genocidal ethnic cleansing doing.

    Every dinar counts.
    And they're likely to survive through the upcoming ethnowars.

    I think the relationship between Croatia and Serbia is a lot less frosty than that between Serbia and Kosovo-Albanians.

    Maybe this is a game that Divock re-enters the fray

    Shaq out of the Attack
    Should have been the headline.
