    Yep, clearly. He's never won an international trophy and therefore isn't as good as everybody claims. This example alone should show how absurd that argument is.

    3 days arguing about a made up term with no clear definition. How long until the fucking football starts?

    @fontgeeksogood No chance. They would survive in the Prem with the number of mediocre teams fighting over relegation each season.

    Meh, not convinced. Their best player came from a side at that point bottom half of Championship, and a youth product from my team (also bottom half of Champ) went there last year and played in the CL despite never playing for our first team.

    I genuinely doubt they'd make much of a dent in the EFL upper echelons

    That's why Manchester City couldn't beat them in 2 attempts, yeah?
    Which best player is this?
    Tierney? Dembele? Forrest? Rogic?

    Dembele. Not heard of the others, they sound even shitter.

    We beat Arsenal a few seasons back yet here we are still in the Championship. Maybe the team should move to Scotland, worst we'd do each season is 2nd in the SPL

    If you think Dembele is shit then there's not much to be said.
    Well the SPFL was a more fun, competitive league that one one-horse-race borefest EPL last year.
    I'm sure the Canuck league is better.

    Ha, Celtic would struggle in the 2nd tier of the EFL. Absolute shitbirds.

    Yes, the SPL wouldn't want to be a one horse race league
  • Deleted user 18 July 2018 22:37:01
    Is Henrik Larsson still their best player?

    if they were in the English league, games against an English team would no longer be their cup finals.

    Trevor Noah made a joke on the Daily Show about France's World Cup win being a victory for Africa due to the heritage of so many in the squad. The French ambassador to the US has written to complain about that.
