    Im sticking with what I said. They can do world wide leagues all they want. With folk watching there fav team play in China and get up at hellish hours the glory hunters will soon get fed up of that. **** them, **** sky.

    Rubbish, there is nothing capitalist about the Abu Dhabi government buying Man City, or a dodgy Russian oligarch buying Chelsea.

    The EPL is the most over-rated football league in the world and a triumph of marketing over substance.
    Van Dick going to the bin dippers for 75 million just shows that. Liverpool are hugely over rated as well, plus their stupid **** of a German manager.

    I wonder what Rodgers role in all this is??

    I suppose Liverpool are paying for him with the money they will get from flogging Coutinho to Barcelona in January. That will give their fans something new to whinge about.

    Celtic are gearing up for it and are making contingency plans. So I've heard anyway.

    I also think the new stadium is pointless just now. We can't even feed off the EPL.

    It'll all blow up at some point but then there will be generations of Scots just losing interest in football completely.

    An over-rated player (along with Neymar) and part of the worst Brazilian team in living memory. Still, quids in, the Chinese folks buying into the TV rights won't notice.

    You obviously don't remember Brazil in the 1990 world cup.

    I do - led by 'Dunga' and put out of the tournament by Argentina with Maradona in the side. None of them on ludicrous wages though, perhaps before Bosman?

    Surprised nobody has mentioned the fact that this super duper duper duper super mega ace league has been well and truly pissed by Abu Dhabi City.

    Its not the only league to be fair.

    But for the guffball, Germany, France, Spain, Scotland, to be sewn up by Christmas shows where football is heading. Its becoming a bit pointless

    The only top league that hasn't been won by the money super powers is Italy where there are only 9 points separating the top 5.

    Portugals has a decent 3 way race going too but its the 3 rich clubs


    Basel who are on par with the Celtic gulf in finances in our league are the only team I can see not top of their league. ,mon the Young Boys (a club with a very similar history to us)



    To add I notice Belgium has been pissed too by Brugges

    Just an observation. As im at work guffball is always on in the TV room. Last night Burnley v the Mersey Murderers and tonight Abu Dhabi Mercenaries v Watford. Both game have something in common. Lots of empty seats. Are the supporters starting to realise for themselves

    @ 15m, does not seem a lot in today’s hyperinflated guff market. However, I feel this one deserves a mention.

    Ross Barkley from Everton to Chelsea for 15m. He had not played for 7 months due to a hamstring injury and is out of contract end of 2017/2018 season.

    What the absolute fvck throws away money like that. Absurd.

    Not since the”Zander Diamond to Fertz was called off because of his dodgy ankle”. That would have been our best transfer ever. Seemingly Romanov instructed the signing because he thought the name “Diamond” sounded ace.

    Fans are no longer needed as the crazy money the clubs get for just being in the league from tv rights etc covers everything clubs at the middle to bottom end will ever need.
