On talksport a while back, they did a survey, and the result was that Glasgow Celtic were the best supported club in the world.

 

Top 6 

 

01 Celtic

02 Liverpool

03 Barcelona

04 Real Madrid

05 Man Utd

06 Bayern

 

Can't recall the others but I think Ajax and one of the italian giants were up there.

Not sure what the criteria was but if we are going off global fanbase, I am pretty sure that's incorrect.

I also find that hard to believe.

Sure I get your point. Hence my point re. succession planning. And to be fair no one was ever going to replace Ferguson, but they they couldn't have gone about it any worse. 

I've often considered "after Klopp" but I'd expect a transition that would still see us compete, and not waste millions, maintaining his winning ethos, philosophy and strategy behind the scenes. 

 

That said Chelsea is a great example of how all of what I'm saying is total <deleted>-s, manager after manager but you are always in the mix, it doesn't have a detrimental effect. 

 

 

 

The benefit of hindsight shows Ferguson only had the chairman he did so long as he was there and then he was chopped as soon as Fergie left so Glazer could bring in his own man....it was a huge mistake from a footballing perspective but gold dust for the balance sheet.

 

The Glazers in a nutshell really.

Can you fill me in on how true these Spurs dressing room rumours are?

There are so many you had better list them for me.

 

I can say Eriksen refuted the affair thing with Verts and his wife already. Lol.

Ole-at-the-wheel's 17 league games since the PSG match have yielded just 17 points (Mourinho’s last 17 games before his dismissal brought 26), or a 38 point season, which in last season's table would have been a 5th from bottom end of season. So O-A-T-W should keep you up, just.

True. On the Brazil and Parry show. 

 

Are you not pleased to be the 5th most supported club in the world?

 

Celtic supporters are thick on the ground in South America.

Loved to see the stats/facts behind this.

 

If i was asked to put them in order I'd go for:

 

01 Real Madrid or Man Utd

03 Barcelona

04 Liverpool

05 Bayern

06 Celtic (a long way behind the others).

That looks about right. Juve and Arsenal probably worthy of honourable mentions. And possibly Chelsea.

The problem with Ole is that he still thinks that Rashford is a gift sent from heaven. 

His team last night was a bunch of wannabe footballers. Maybe with an exception of McTominay and James, the players in that team would have a hard time to get into any Premier League side or even in the Championship.  They are just poor.
And whatever the manager is telling them,  its not helping. 

 

Liverpool up next which you will lose and then you are in the relegation battle. I think this experiment is long overdue.  Ole will get released from the contract within the next 2 weeks, anything else will be a suicide mission.
