Or I could just hate breaking non-disclosure agreements that I need to abide by in order to keep my job?
Thus proving you are a nobber who is all style, all boasting and utterly no substance. Get tae fook.
I'd appreciate it if you'd stop quoting and responding to me because you never do it to create discussion, only to infer mockery or create tension. It's bloody dull.
I'm posting in the Scottish football thread for fans of Scottish football - you have a faux interest in this matter and it's jarring when you relate everything to Portsmouth. There is very little you can gleam from Pompey's case that you could use as insight into this one as the circumstances and surroundings are completely different.
As for the other comment, Celtic are the 8th "most supported" side in Europe but those figures only contain match-day attendees. They've got a world-wide fanbase that no other side in the Championship, and very few in the Premiership, can command. It's something that's underplayed by the English media, how big the Old Firm are. There's a supporters club in every corner of the world and the march to Sevilla in 2003 was just a glimpse at how fanatical and large that base is.
Well then why not say that in the first place?
Its got nothing to do with 'the English media'. I have my own opinions that I am allowed to have. I have never said Celtic aren't a big club, I've said they would be the most supported in the Championship, but your point on worldwide support probably wouldn't hold water in the Prem. A lot of the clubs have fan divisions in all parts of the world, many Championship clubs also do. Its undoubted theres a lot of potential at Celtic, but to target that top four you realistically and honestly probably need oil money unless a top-four side misfires, which is what is kinda happening with Chelsea to give the like of Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle a sniff. That would put Celtic roughly at the level of a Villa or Everton even after three to four years investment on Prem money, who consistently have been around eighth until this season - thats a realstic assessment based on reasoned thoughts - not the 'drivelling of a mad man'.
The Portsmouth situation is not exactly the same no, but I have been reading every single day about administration and debt and how it works for about two seasons now. The situation Rangers face seems to be a bigger version of what Portsmouth faced first time around. Its not similar to what they are facing now as Portsmouth are in a slightly bizarre situation where the club has a relatively small amount of debt in footballing terms, but the noose of debt on surrounding assets is what puts of a potential buyer to take the 'criminals' away. I find its better to relate my thoughts and musings to something I know well rather then fire several barrels and play guesswork. After all you have your 'sources' - why can't I use reasoned thoughts? I am offended that you think I have a 'faux interest' - I have a very real interest that I have been reading a lot of articles on the matter in the last 24 hours to try get up to speed on the matter.
I'd like to be able to have a reasoned discussion on either Celtic or Barca, but you don't half get on your high horse about either issue, both are untouchable in your eyes. Probably not best to be so biased for your 'job'.
Stick to the football league thread , DML. You know strawberry float all about top flight football and your facile comments really are staring to wear thin.
