Whats the point of scottish football ?

Postby Moff. » Sun May 13, 2018 12:03 pm

So im sat here in work on this glorious day waiting for work to upload too the toughbook and im watching this celtic v aberdeen game on mt phone and i cant help but think whats the point in scottish football ?

Heres my arguement;

If you dont support celtic and rangers (well just celtic these days) then why would you pay money to go and watch such awful football, how could you be content with the spl ?

Celtic fans, celtic have run away with the league for the past 7 years, arent they bored of it now :lol: literally playing in a league only they could win, playing against league 2 quality players week in week out with a mid table/good championship starting 11. I dont get it :lol:

Why would any player want to sign for a scottish club, I can understand why you would sign for celtic, what truly ambitious player wouldnt want 2 maybe 3 champions league hidings every year and playing against top quality opposition like kilmarnock and stenhousmuir :thumbup: :lol:

I could go on and on but the question i really want answering is what is the point too the spl :lol:

Wouldnt scottish football benefit so much from celtic and rangers being invited into the english pyramid at some level and let the rest of the scottish clubs compete with eachother and keep the sky tv deal for exposure ?

How many years has it been since another scottish club won the league munn :lol:
Its hard being cool

Every top division is almost the same except on a slightly larger scale. The bigger well known, supported clubs will always triumph 99.9% of the time.

You pay money to watch your team, why would folk up here be any different to folk elsewhere in the UK who follow clubs who go forever with little or no success?

Every club in the world offers up awful football at some point. Some of the stuff under Slade & Trollope for example? It didn't stop me going, just made it less enjoyable.

The Scottish league is better then the Welsh, Irish and probably many other leagues worldwide.

No, Celtic and rangers shouldn't be invited into the English leagues.
They attack family stands, they sing songs about hillsborough, they attack disabled chelsea supporters and they do nazi salutes. The jacks, they're the scum of the earth

Hibs 3-0 up, Rangers pull it back to lead 5-3 before Hibs make it 5-5 in stoppage time.

Aberdeen win at Celtic for first time in years to clinch second place.

A fantastic afternoon of entertainment up north!

Good post.

we are now in a Division we have zero chance of winning, some would say what's the point of that? how long before it gets boring just surviving every year? Tbh I'm amazed the teams outside of the top 6 maintain the crowds they do, I suppose it's because aside of Newcastle, Everton and West Ham most have relatively small grounds.

To put ito into context in 26 years only 2 teams outside of the current top 6 have won the League.

In the last 30 years only 3 teams outside the current top 6 have won the FA Cup.

And in the last 30 years only 5 teams have won the League Cup.

Ando it's only getting worse.

Just back in from Hibs rangers. I've got a season ticket.

For me there was a gaping hole from when I had my city season ticket so went to hibs a few times. Had a season ticket 5 years.

Really enjoy it. This season hibs beat Celtic at home and played well against them away. Also beat rangers away twice and beat hearts at home.

Lost a few as well but always competitive and top 3 gets European football. Top 4 if a qualified team wins the cup.

I don't see you asking why folk bother watching the premier league when man city have totally dominated? You could say the same about German, French and even the Italian leagues with the same team winning it every season.

Oh and Rangers finished third so Aberdeen should be getting an invite into the English system as well?? Hibs only finished 3 points behind rangers in 4th too.

Premiership? Why should they go straight into the premiership when there are better teams trying to get promoted from the championship? If they were ever to join the English leagues-can’t ever see it mind- they should start from the bottom.

I think both would struggle to get out of the championship.

The point of Scottish football is that it is Scotland's national game. The SFA is the second oldest in the world. Many great footballers have come from Scotland, and some very decent club sides. The national side have had their moments, too. All on a population of about five million. Very few countries have got a football culture as strong as Scotland. Certainly not Wales, which is full, of 'sports fans'.

You support your team, your town, your city regardless of the standard of play.

I thoroughly enjoy watching Barry Town Utd play even though the level of play is poor. It's about wanting your town to beat the other! Whether it's Cardiff v Man City or Barry vs Cefn Druids...... :ayatollah:

Paterson, McNaughton, Conway, Cowie, Marshall, McGregor, Alexander, Miller... I’d say we’ve done alright picking up players north of the wall.

Indeed! Not forgetting George Wood, (he's got no hair, but we don't care). Some decent managers, too; Jimmy Scoular, Frank Burrows, and Malky.

Can't have this proceed without a mention of Hughie Ferguson, one of three Scots who played in the 1927 Final.
