Re: The Scottish Football Thread

London Road, you are not the only one who was talking about the board. My in laws are mad on Celtic, and were saying the same.

They were saying that Celtic is one of the richest clubs in the world. So why arnt they buying good decent players.

To be totally honest, Celtic were like a third team out there. And were extremely poor. They need a striker, maybe two.

But, if the board want something doen, they have to sack there manager. They have to bring in someone who will motivate the team.

Years ago, Celtic were a team that could match any big club from Europe. Not now they cant.

Sorry to be honest.

Re: The Scottish Football Thread

It's a waste of money buying players for a few Europe games. If they were in the epl it would be worth it

They are wrong. Celtic are the richest club in Scottish football by a country mile right now and due to Rangers ongoing woes are likely to remain that way for the next 5 years at least.

In world terms though they are minnows, their entire turnover each season is less than most English teams get in TV money and they simply cannot afford to pay world class wages even if they could entice players to Glasgow to play diddy teams week in, week out for the occasional chance of big games.

They can compete and always will. They can't compete with wages for players anymore because of TV money. Celtic got more for their play off round in the CL than they'll get for the full season of Scottish Football coverage on BT and Sky. That puts it into perspective.

Still a bigger club than Spurs though

Well a few years ago 2008 or 2009 Celtic were 20th or 23rd place on that rich list.

Currently they are within the top 40 still.

So yeah they are still one of the richest teams.

Is that why they are penny pinching with loan deals, a sixth choice manager and selling any player there is even a sniff of interest in?

In world terms of turnover and ready cash they are behind all of the EPL and Championship, the main leagues in Spain, Germany France etc and more on a par with lower level European leagues.

Still wealthy but not frivolous. It's called living within your means. A concept that was alien to your dead club and this new zombie offspring that you're journeying with.

You should expend your energy saving Sevco instead of obsessing about the team that put Glasgow on the map.

The Legia fans are not too happy about Sporting Integrity FC getting put through in their place.

A good interview here with Peter Lawell that might explain, with some realism, the actual situation with Celtic.

Re: The Scottish Football Thread

Sad news, marring a decent victory.

A football fan has died after falling in a stairwell at Celtic Park following Scotland's Euro 2016 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

Some good news, hopefully to be followed by some reports of Police brutality over the weekend to those involved.

Quote:
An arrest warrant has been issued for former Rangers owner Craig Whyte following an investigation into the club's sale in 2011.

Four other men detained during raids in England earlier have now been arrested.

On Friday evening, a spokesman for Police Scotland said: "Following an operation on Friday 14 November, four men have been arrested and are presently detained in police custody in connection with the ongoing investigation into the alleged fraudulent acquisition of Rangers FC in 2011."
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...-west-30053692

I have a feeling they won't be stopping at 5 arrests, there is more to come out of this story.
