Millionaire’s Playground

The Premier League trophy

It would be great to project forward 10 yrs and see if celtic actually make it to the english premiership,my thoughts are it will never happen”’and heres why”’ there scared that’s no lie if Celtic were allowed to play in the millionaires playground they would become to big a fish,we all know football these days is money driven,england,spain,germany ,italy…the same teams each yr dominating…

in spain you have Barcelona and real Madrid,in germany its Bayern Munich,Juventas in italy,england has Chelsea arsenal and Manchester city…..

Its easy for me to say celtic would become top dog ,we already have a fine history,a top stadium 61000 bigger than most premiership teams,given the finance we would receive in the premiership the big players would be considering not just moves to Chelsea and arsenal but our own celtic,on a competitive level even without the big bucks celtic have had the edge over our english counterparts in recent yrs with victories against man utd,Blackburn and liverpool so there’s no reason to believe celtic wouldn’t be competitive…

the english fa wouldn’t want a outside influence coming in and upsetting the status quo either so its another reason i dont see it happening,its a nice thought the games would be exciting and the away days would be a mini holiday almost,but the logistics of such a move is probably another stumbling block,celtic fans will follow the team everywhere but every other week the policing in both Scotland and england would need to be intense….

we may have to make do with the Scottish premiership for a while yet,off course there’s other options on the table like inter continent tournaments in league formats but there probably a while off yet.

with everyone having a go at Scottish football you have to look at other leagues and realise the gaps between the rich elite teams to the rest is massive,Bayern Munich just rompted the german league we dont here the same criticism there as here in Scotland,Juventas are a massive 11 points clear in italy as well,the Scottish game has took a pounding last few yrs ..but you can only operate in the climate you’re in and the money is not there,i believe the only way forward for football is to enforce a baseball type template and have a financial cap,only then will it be a fair playing field…

we all love to play in the champions league every yr but it should only be the league winners from each country,and not top 2 top 3 its a falsehood ..uefa need to address this its not just for the ultra rich teams but should be for teams who play a whole campaign and win the title….

    i believe your right …theres is something happening behind the scenes its taking yrs to develop but its not england,its more likley the inter continental option and thats what peter lawell has been most prominent on ,time will tell but there has to be change from uefa,a fairer distribution of wealth needs to be implimented the elite clubs are way to far off now ,its simply turning into a farce ….hh

    I agree mate, up to a point, the fans. Sure if we did get among the english there would be hordes of us down there, to begin with. But once the realisation that only a few thousand tickets were available for away games (through the club) and most games down there are sell outs, the fervour would relax and we would fit in. Another thing, the reason this has come into the media lately is, because there is something going on behind the scenes and eufa and the big clubs of the big leagues are terrified of it, i,e an atlantic league or whatever, that is a threat to them, maybe’s that’s why our own club are going so easy on sevco!….. Don’t know but something is going on.
