@Thomas

Can I ask why you have such an interest in Scottish football??

As @Gash has already pointed out (as if it needed to be) it's a fucking awful standard of football.

Went out with a Scottish girl for a while, had mates who took me a few Celtic games, checked my family history (Irish), enjoy going Celtic games and made a few mates doing it. Carried on supporting them along with Everton.

I Know plenty of lads from Irish Toffees who support both.

Do you think Rogers was a good choice for Celtic? @Gash - some Celtic fans where considering Stubbs as an ex player who at managerial level punched above his weight and seemed eager and ambitious. Do you think anybody (other than Hearts who did it) could beat Rangers to Division 1 last year? I have friends who support Hibs and as the 'other' irish/socialist club I have a lot of time for them and their tradition/supporters but Stubbs did a difficult job well and is now at Rotheram ironically signing a few scourers and creating a plan for progress

As for Rogers - do you agree like Shankly wasn't fitted to Huddersfield or Van Gaal to Man Utd they where still good managers and Rogers will kick away his Liverpool Hoodoo and resemble Martin O'Neil in taking Celtic back to regular CL Group/2nd Stage campaigns and domestic trebles?

As for Rangers - where do they need improving? Can you see them having a fast rise?

Is it fair that a Old Firm ticket at Celtic Park is DOUBLE the price of a regular ticket this season?

I think Rogers was an easy choice for Celtic and for him. He clearly wasn't going to get offered a big job in England anytime soon so it was a 'big job' for him to take, but in a league where only two clubs have a realistic chance of winning and one is wounded then it's a bit of a no brainer for him for now but if Rangers get close then the pressure will increase tenfold. I'm not convinced by him, even less so after he trotted out the "great character" line last night after the game. He's had a season where he (Suarez) took them close to winning the league and a decent season at Swansea, other than that he's got a questionable record as a manager.

Stubbs made a mess of the play offs the first year they went down, they were 2-0 up after the first leg and still 2-1 up in injury time of the second but lost on penalties. If I recall correctly they were in control of the their destiny until about March last season then they totally imploded.

Don't really know about Rangers, I can see them getting back in debt with some of the players they're trying to throw money at.

If that's right about Celtic charging double for an Old Firm game that's pretty disgraceful, are they trying to recoup the money from the years they didn't have the derby? Fair enough charge a few extra for a category A match but double is a piss take.

You need to get one of those fancy Android boxes or something. No one south of Dalkeith watches 'quite a bit of it generally'. ;)

Scott Brown retired from international football. That should buy him a bit more time to run around bumping into people pretending he's a hardman.

If it's typical for the area you live in, I love it too, even without having heard it. :)

I think I've a bit of a mix being from the south east originally then moving to the south west. It's not like a strong Glasgow or northern accent.

The SPL is the non-event of non-events. It's basically full of rejects, failures and candlestick makers.
