  1. The idea that Celtic players are under pressure in Scotland because 50,000 entitled half-witted glory hunting bigots think it is their right to win every game is laughable nonsense.
  2. Do some research on the Catholic church son. And less of the swearing, you're better than that.
  3. "Kilmarnock are a club open to everyone, including those whose religious beliefs include treating the LGBT community as 2nd class citizens and denying women the right to control their own fertility" Is that the kind of statement Kilmarnock should have issued ?
  4. "You'll assume no such thing", said Mr McHenry. "Time for bed" , said Zebedee.
  5. The pertinent point is that the English top flight is a step up in quality from the Scottish top flight. Several steps up in fact. Therefore as long as Celtic are playing in Scotland then any club in the English top flight is a step up in football standards from Celtic. How many season tickets they sell, how loud they can sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' are twee irrelevancies. Purely in footballing terms Celtic are a wee diddy club in comparison to the EPL. And it's the uneven, unfair distribution of money throughout European football that's the cause of that. Something which Celtic have absolutely no issue with in Scotland. So they can't really complain or moan.
  6. And a higher standard of football. It is that simple. A step up as l said.
  7. It's extremely easy to argue that a move from Celtic to Aston Villa or Southampton is a step up. Those two clubs play in the English Premier League. Celtic play in the Scottish Premiership. The Scottish top flight to the English top flight is a step up, a huge step up. It really is that simple.
  8. Don't go there.... what happens in Lourdes stays in Lourdes, as the saying goes !
  9. At least I know that when I argue with myself I've a chance of winning !
  10. I'm a Fanboy of football and if you don't think the football in the EPL is of a better quality and more exciting than the Scottish top flight then that's up to you. But don't give me that 'fanboy' shite. It really is nonsense of the highest order.
  11. Yep. I'd say it's almost a certainty that John McGinn wouldn't be half the player he is for Scotland now if he had done what all the pundits in Scotland wanted him to do and left Hibs for Celtic.
  12. Fair enough and who would blame him for that, but you've only one relatively short career and having won domestic trophies and experienced European football again & again & again and enjoyed trips to Dingwall, New Douglas Park, Fir Park etc again & again & again I do scratch my head at why a player, who's definitely good enough, might not want to experience Old Trafford, Anfield, St James Park, Emirates etc etc for a few seasons......if only for a wee change if nothing else.
  13. I think maybe the media and public in Scotland have now accepted that, annoying though the SKY hype may be, the EPL is probably the best league in the world and anyone who can command a first team place down there is, by definition, a superior player to his counterpart up here.
  14. In an Ideal world where several journalists where employed as pundits and no thick ex-pros were, them yes but while it's a binary choice between thick semi-literate ex-pros or Tom English we do not have the luxury of undermining Tom English.
  15. Tom English is not perfect but if you'd rather have Bonner, Biscuits, Neil McCann, Peter Grant & the rest of the thick as mince ex pros rather than literate journalists then just carry on knocking him. Gushing praise over this week's achievements is merited but I fail to see how a 3-0 pumping from a shit poor Ireland was anything other than doomsday. Those trying to claim they knew all along that things would be fine have overdone the hindsight on their chips.
  16. Season 2 'One For The Road' 1974.. ......"careful how you go. There's a match... Aye, a friendly - with Rangers .... No such thing, they'll be on the rampage.... Aye, hoolligans. Good night.."
  17. Great sitcom. Great episode. If you can check out the episode where Rangers come down to Newcastle for a 'freindly' !
  18. Comprehensive defeat for the Scots tonight. Ukraine 4, Scotland 0. But hey, we might get England next time round.
  19. Overrated - Glasgow. Is there an uglier, more filthy city in Europe ? Underrated - Edinburgh. Is there a more beautiful city in Europe ?
  20. Would make a good thread in itself, that. Most embarrassing 90 mins as Scotland fan. Very dependent on age of course but for me. England 5, Scotland 1. 1975.
