    With response to all you so called fans who dont regard the famous Glasgow Celtic Football Club as top european side let us teach you all a bit of history about the 1st team to bring the european cup to british soil and team that all you lesser clubs look towards for your testimonials and your pre season friendlies to fill your stadiums that you cant fill even on your "BIG UEFA CUP" nights .

The club has a worldwide fan base of well over 10 million ......... are you all getting the picture ?

    If you were a stranger browsing this board, I imagine you would be shocked.

    Moan, moan, fucking moan. That's all we do. "Too expensive", "Too many people", "The chants are offensive", "The manager's buying proven premiership players when he could go and discover the next Daniel Agger...", "Why did we buy Bellamy", "Why did we buy RSC", "Toure's not as good as Onuoha"...

    This place is becoming a fucking joke. Most of you ****s were happy wallowing in the shit that the likes of Mackintoss et al. left us in...but suddenly a few quid, and you've turned into spoiled, ungrateful, little twats.

    Those points would be valid, except for the invisible diclaimer against most of em.

    "Against Scottish opposition"

    History of a club is great, but it is where you are going that counts, there are loads of clubs that have won more than City, some of them are now languishing in the the lower leagues! But still they have their "History" to keep them warm

    The fact of the matter is, the Scottish Prem is far inferior to the English Prem, always has been and as it stand always will be, it's like player who set the Dutch league on fire, it means nothing in a much poorer league

    dont go then, we are one of the fairest when it comes to ticket pricing. If your moaning about this then your going to have a tough season as I expect every away game will be at the very least £32 this season.

    What a pile of patronising shite that first paragraph is.
    Not arguing with the "history" thing but we've got a bit of our own too.
    The only team to win a European trophy with an all-English side?
    The biggest domestic attendance ever in English football?

    Get the picture?

    So you're a Great white shark in the footballing equivalent of a goldfish bowl on a very small bookshelf.So fucking what?

    You have to accept that to a sizeable number of fans in England you're about as interesting and as and relevant in a footballing sense as MK Dons.

    Do one.
