    Outside of the Premiership cess pit it does.
    In Scotland it buys TWO defenders.

    lol 50 million
    For the majority of the football world, it's unheard of to be sitting on 50M in cash, unspent.
    Maybe in 1995
    You're pretty boring, even by troll standards.
    Shouldn't you be chasing cars or something?

    I don't think the one horse race League champions really have much of a moral high ground here tbh.
    We won something at least
    Ya my team did as well

    ******
    1 Trophy in 20 years, ya your flying, keep picking up those 3rd places though, FIFA designed it's league for teams like yours

    LOL complaining about champions league not only having league champions in it. That would be absolutely shite to watch. Would basically just be watching more Euro and World Cup qualifiers. Painful stuff.

    You think itís good that Ajax have to play qualifiers to reach the group stages despite winning their league and being CL semi-finalists whereas the likes of 4th place Bayer Leverkusen donít ?

    Well that does seem a bit strange considering the Dutch league and Dutch football team are generally competitive, and that Ajax are probably a better team than Leverkusen.

    I think one outlier is hardly an argument that it should just be league champions though. Because I think everyone can admit that would be horrible.

    Yes because the relative strength of the leagues is something which is directly comperable and nobody wants a situation where Celtic get into the first round not on that merit and stink up eight games rather than two over a team which are better.

    Super Cup... Great game so far.

    But seriously fuck these stupid late offside flags. Celebrate your team score and then 10 seconds later it's been ruled offside again. It's so fucking stupid.

    Between that and the new handside rules, the game has become so much more frustrating to watch.

    What I've really taken from this is how completely abject Norwich must be which in turn suggests the gulf between the PL and Championship has significantly grown recently.

    And Liverpool's defence has deteriorated since last season.

    Norwich spent £750k in the summer and, although I can't be impartial, their squad massively over achieved last season. They're not planning on a long PL stay

    Doesn't matter, you'll soon have a European closed shop of foreign-owned megacorp franchises playing each other to death, it'll be awesome.

    Quite the game that.

    Unlucky Chelsea, you played much better tonight than the other night (Kante had quite the role in that).

    We were shite first half, but think we just edged the game. Still no idea what a handball is anymore and not sure why var didn't overturn that pen award, but hey ho we won!

    Not sure why you're so fussed anyway. According to John Hartson Celtic fans are more interested in being the best pub team 10 years in a row anyway.

    Only the idiot ones, I couldn't give a fck about 10 in a row.
    The whole "pub league" stuff is really original btw, no idea how English football fans get a reputation for being obnoxious and arrogant.

    I'm not English lol.

    I would say because you don't usually hear so much noise from a club in a dog shit league. Did you know Linfield hold the world record of 24 domestic doubles? Impressive, right?

    Well it is a more competitive league than the SPL...

    Not sure you'll see a more open game. Neither team has a clue how to defend

    Keeping a clean sheet though, even with Mustafi

    Yes, will take that. I'm sure Grealish and pals will knock a couple in.

    Can't believe you guys are praising the clean sheet, more down to Martinez than anything else. What did we get to, 25 shots against?

    Delighted with that. Not a great performance by any stretch but a win with the kids and Greenwood getting his goal was wonderful to see. That said, Tuanzebe was the most impressive of the youngsters imo. Were you a fan of his at Villa @Jono62?
