    They hate the English so it should never ever be spoke about Want them to get their independence and let them join the EU and be ruled by the Franco - German alliance

    With the large fan base they have, and the money they would get when in the prem, I would expect them to be challenging for top 4 within 10 years.
    They are both huge clubs playing in a Micky mouse league with no revenue.

    Correct but this is all hypothetical as it’s never going to happen.

    i watched some of the game today and sorry even league 1 would be a struggle for both ?? the premier league is miles ahead from scottish football, the premier league is a 3 level league with the top 6 teams mid-table and 6 to 7 team at the bottom fighting the drop, but the game in england is so much about skill and fitness and some of the world best players and managers and clubs ?? rangers and celtic may have a fan base but there DNA and football knowledge is years behind, even spending big money would take 10 years to turn them into a big club in the premier league

    so maybe bring them in at league one and build from there and forget premier league its miles away and they would look silly starting the premier league, but the problem in Scotland and football is something the SFA have made, they have cut there cloth to suit both celtic and rangers and fuck the rest and you pick up the bits both of them leave behind and you have to fight each other for

    Scottish football was rich in talent 30 years ago and the league was a very good league, but both celtic and rangers still owned the league but the smaller clubs was producing very good talent because of the standers of the league and the talent both of the big 2 clubs had, football was a way of life in scotland and young kids wanted the chance to be a footballer but sadly something went wrong and now the talent and academies are not there for kids, they just come to england now at a young age

    It’s never going to happen. Any predictions about what might happen are futile. What we need to is accept where we are and hope to get better in Europe. For us that’s about fixing our defence, yesterday the new players stood up and hopefully for us is a sign that suicidal defending is on the way out.

    We aren’t as bad as some think, but we are still nowhere where we want to be. Hopefully make a step forward this year after shooting ourselves in the head with they ****s from Cluj.

    I’m usually very cautious about claiming stuff but I do feel if we improve defensively we have a chance of getting out of our EL group, get a settled team for next years CL and hopefully not make another roaring **** of it.

    EPL never a starter though.

    Undoubtedly, both clubs can boast a huge worldwide fanbase, but then again, so do Liverpool, and they've never won the Premier League.

    Also, if it was just about large crowds, then Newcastle would finish in the Top Ten every season.

    Ultimately, (and let's not kid ourselves that City have always enjoyed a short and long term strategy) it's all about the boardroom making the right decisions regarding management and transfer policy.

    i think once installed in the prem they would have the financial clout to build a mid table side before they kicked a ball, 3 years later they would be up for a top 4 challenge, we have seen it with city from a stuart pierce side and then a few years later, i wouldnt like them in the prem but would like to see a british leage cup replacing the league cup as it is

    Given time they would both rise to the Premier league due to fan base and investment, god hope it never comes to that!
