As much as I cringe re Celtic, this is the logical outcome given the percentage of games already played.
Fair assumption on the outcome but why the 'cringe factor' regarding Celtic? This club has deep Irish Catholic roots but have always been open to employ not only Catholics, but Protestants, Muslims, Hindus etc. and have never discriminated against race, religion etc.
On the other hand Rangers REFUSED to sign a Catholic until July 1989 when Souness had the balls to sign Maurice Johnston,
over 117 YEARS since the club were established in March 1872. :oops:

Celtic have refused to have a poppy on their shirts

Celtic fans have chanted about the deaths of British soldiers

Celtic fans have chanted pro terrorist songs.

Celtic fans have boo'd remembrance day services.

Celtic fans fly the flag of another nation, instead of their own.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Either a season is finished or it isn't?

Until something is mathmatically certain then you can't award a winner.

2019/20 SPL Winner - seltic*
If clubs and associations agree otherwise you can.

If they decide to finish the season now, it's legal and that's it. May not seem right and will give people something to talk about , but to say a winner can't be announced and crowned is bollocks.

I think they are coming back too early, but if this season is completed in October I don't care. I am not concerned about Liverpool being awarded the trophy, as everybdy knows they will win it, BUT I still think games need to played for relegation/promotion.
It will forever have an asterix on it, then again. A lot of seltic's titles already do.

Oh the irony, tainted Champions or Champions with an asterix - does that sound familiar - good old 'paper bag FC' got caught out. Even the Newco Manager knew Celtic were worthy champions

Rangers fans and now Newco fans sing songs about the famine, 'up to our ears in fenian blood' sound familiar? Songs about dead Celtic players, cause trouble in Europe etc etc

Glasgow Celtic Champions of Scotland again 2020 - 9 in a Row Happy Days - I wonder what you will come up with next year when we make the magic 10 (I'm sure you will invent something) until then Pubs open on Friday order a Parmy with your bitter

Won't need to, will still remind you that 6 of them have an asterisk on them.

Rangers do sing bad songs but they're not against the country they play in.

How many more years and you MAY have as many titles as Rangers? Until then New Seltic will be in their shadow.

Catching up? Rangers are ahead of New Seltic.

over 117 YEARS since the club were established in March 1872. :oops:
In my opinion the cringe factor applies to the other side.
1. Celtic have refused to have a poppy on their shirts

2. Celtic fans have chanted about the deaths of British soldiers

3. Celtic fans have chanted pro terrorist songs.

4. Celtic fans have boo'd remembrance day services.

5. Celtic fans fly the flag of another nation, instead of their own.

1. On some occasions yes and others no. The Club itself respect the poppy appeal and contribute to it every year without fail.
2. Yes, some have but the vast majority have not. Due to the Irish connection and personal experiences (a couple of hundred travel from Ireland to most home games) some feel justified to sing songs of hatred. In my opinion (along with the majority of other Celtic fans) songs of this nature should be stamped out completely. They are an embarrassment to the decent supporters and the club itself. Celtic have attempted to resolve this issue with some success though it is more difficult to control at away games.
3. Yes, due to history between the Irish Catholics and the British Empire there is bad blood which will always linger. Faults on both sides of the divide so to speak. Most of us sit on one side of the fence or the other. Due to my upbringing I can comfortably see both sides of the argument. During the Irish Potato Famine of 1845-1849 (caused by the British Empire and regarded in history as Genocide) approximately 1 million Irish Catholic peasants perished. I would assume that most Irish Catholics (of which I am not) would be pretty pissed off about that so to speak.
4. Yes, some have but the vast majority and the Club itself respect the Remembrance Day Service.
5. Yes and No as both flags are flown. This is a personal choice and the Irish flags on show displays the respect of their ancestors- no shame in that. Due to the famine 1 million Catholics emigrated, 29% of them settled in Glasgow. If you can't see the connection and the reason for the flying Irish flags then so be it.


Now I'm done explaining facts to a Millwall supporter! :roll:

P.S. My question was to Bomber, I'm sure he is big enough to answer for himself! :smile:

You could win 50 in a row and still never make it past the Champions Leage group stages. Most of the SPL teams would be Div 2 in England.

Ha Division 1 yes, Division 2, maybe the bottom 1 or 2. Celtic and Rangers would be contenders - they just need the EPL TV money

Ha Division 1 yes, Division 2, maybe the bottom 1 or 2. Celtic and Rangers would be contenders - they just need the EPL TV money
Sweaties are just lucky that Carlisle is south of the border or they'd be winning it every year ;-)

I'll answer then. I hate Celtic. Cheers :wave:
Too bad, you'll be hurting all the more when we get 10! :D
You could win 50 in a row and still never make it past the Champions Leage group stages. Most of the SPL teams would be Div 2 in England.

You have to get to the EPL to get that money though. That's a major flaw in your theory.

Can't see any SPL team getting out of League One.

Good point but I do think seltic will be able to progress through the northern league up to league one.

Gloating already and maybe putting the knife in. I actually rate Gerrard. Rangers look a better side under him.

Neil Lennon reckons he'd have been sacked if he'd endured two trophy less seasons like Old Firm rival Steven Gerrard.

The Rangers gaffer has failed to land silverware in his time in charge at Ibrox and is under huge pressure to deliver next season and stop Celtic’s 10-in-a-row.

Gerrard will become only the third manager in Old Firm history to start a third campaign after finishing his first two seasons empty-handed.
The last was Liam Brady 27 years ago who lasted only a few months into a third term at Celtic.

You can hardly compared the situations for Brady and Gerrard, Rangers now are a shadow of the power they once were and it will be several seasons before they challenge Celtic again. I actually don't think he's under any pressure at all, I think the fans hate it, but recognise where they are. Second best.
