    For all the people who watch football do you feel that Celtic will go to the last 16 of the champions league. And what do you think of Celtic as a football club.

    Yeah I guess I'm what you could call a Celtic supporter .... 5th generation of season ticket holders and shareholders in my family, lol! I'm going to King's this year to study French and Italian My dad's main concern is that I'm the first female President of the Cambridge CSC, lol
    As for Scottish teams going inot the English League: those down south who think it's a joke are most probably supporters of the teams whose position in the EPL would be threatened by the arrival of Celtic (and/or Rangers) - either that or it's just a classic case of rampant nationalism because no-one who knows anything about football would deny that the league would be enhanced by the presence of a club like Celtic, who have 60,000 supporters every home game, a great history and tradition, hundreds of thousands of passionate fans in every corner of the globe and, of course, a team with ability and spirit in equal measure who play regularly in the Champion's League.

    Somehow only one team threatens mine unless Manchester United buck their ideas up.

    And why not? English football league for English football clubs. Or would you like a sporting version of the West Lothian Question eh? Yes I know there are Welsh clubs too.

    I've heard from a Scot that you also have bad riots. This needs to be stamped out. Bad enough with Millwall in the past.

    Yes because you have to finish first in the SPL for that with only one cchallenger. Second place goes to the UEFA cup I think. Apart from Rangers and Celtic the rest remind me of Division 1 football, or is that the Championship? Unless the rules have changed....

    So long as Celtic win their home games as they usually do and for ONCE manage not to lose away from home they should make it. 6 Points against Shaktar + a win at home against Barca(again) and Milan should see them through, hopefully to meet easy (English) opposition before going on the to last 8.

    Apart from the Welsh, incidently a Scottish club has twice played in the FA Cup final.

    You have to go back decades for examples of this.

    Division 1? you flatter them its closer to Division 2, just be thankful you can mock from afar while we have to suffer their presence as 'competition.' Incidently, the only difference between the top leagues in england and scotland is money, the Premiership is no more competitive than the *******s that is the SPL.

    Yes they can take part in the FA Cup final. I don't mind this too much, but the EPL is a bit different for me.

    Or you mean League 1?

    Not quite true, but it's a big factor.

    Depends which way you look at it.

    English clubs who have won the top league in last 12 years? 3. Scottish clubs who have won the top league in the last 12 years? 2. The difference doesnt change greatly if you go back 20 years either.

    Im not accusing the Prem of being as poor quality wise as the SPL, that would be utter nonsense. By competitive i simply mean the number of clubs who have a realistic chance of challenging for the championship - a number which, like in the SPL, has been stuck firmly at 2 for most of the last decade.

    Well the Premiership has had more times competing for the title. Sometimes it has been only two but perhaps not as much as the SPL, which is maybe why the SPL has the stigma of Rangers or Celtic. Last season in the EPL there were 3, I know it's not always like this, and teams do change around for the title. It's nice to have a variety, that's partly why I quite like hurling

    You dont have serious third party contenders in the Prem though just as the SPL does not. About 3 season ago Hibs were challenging for a while, a couple of seasons before that Hearts put in a decent challenge and up until the mid 90s Aberdeen were a consistent force. England has had Man U + Arsenal with flash in the pan challenges from L'pool,Chelsea,Blackburn and Newcastle - none of whom (apart from Blackburn - and look what happened to them!) put in a season long challenge which resulted in success.

    Just as Aberdeen were the strong force of the SPL, with Dundee Utd their main challengers in the same way Everton challenged Liverpool in the 80s.
