Credit to Carrier Bag for always wanting to play but it might be time to park the bus.

Yay, Celtic score an OG, just to ramp up the misery a little more! Fuck them, fuck Scottish football, and most especially fuck Brenton.

That's the problem with the shitheap that is the SPL. Everyone else is so fucking shite that it gives Celtic the illusion that they're actually pretty decent.


They're not.

Well they beat Rosenborg, and Rosenborg beat Ajax. So, by that logic...




Celtic are still shit.

In a pretty naff league. Waste of talent.
A league they couldn't win last year, that also produced a CL semi finalist and a Europa semi finalist.

It's not a league full of inflated super stars, but it's a league that continually produces them.

Have you watched PL games from Everton downwards? You'd think all the dough was in Ligue 1 if you had. Much of the football is utter garbage. Better than 10 years ago, but still pretty fucking turgid.

If hype's your thing then stick with the PL, if you just want to watch some decent football, plenty of endeavour, some pretty decent coaching and a good smattering of tactical application, and tomorrow's super stars before they've made it to the cover of FIFA 19, Ligue 1's perfectly acceptable.

I'm.half French monsoir and pay attention. Rugby is more popular where my family are from (burgundy). I was half serious half jesting. I'm just shocked that a team like PSG can be effectively owned by a country. It takes the piss.

I do agree that the standard is fairly decent. I certainly agree the premiership is a lot of hype by comparison.

Goal for Roma...The chels going with Fabregas in MF. Probably going to be punished as he is no match for Nainggolan (sp?) there.

Lingard gets a treatment off the pitch, comes back on without the refs permission and gets a yellow card for it. Dumbass.
