Can't help but think that the money spent in England is moral repugnant.

+£1.5bn and £200k + per week wages are obscene - It amazes me why so little is made of it by the press or politicians

It's not really sport if it is all about how much money you have to spend.

I don't know why people get so morally outraged by over inflated football transfers. If people want to pay over the odds for Sky, then Sky want to pay over the odds for a tv deal then the clubs will pay over the odds for players. It's a market.
It's no different from us dominating Scottish Football because of our larger fan base.


2.) 01 Sep 2016 12:28:40
Were you complaining when we were doing 9 in a row? Got to say it is ridiculous to pay people more in a month than some will make in a lifetime. If people are happy to be ripped off by Sky though, things won't change. Even in Scotland I see a lot of over paid, under worked fairies getting paid crazy money.

I have been saying for years the EPL will go tits up one day, it seems to get stronger all the time.

Its different when our own football is being overlooked and paid an utter pittance. Our sky subscribers cash goes toward English teams, whom in-turn like to look down their nose and pour scorn on our game. Even now and possibly more so in the future, our kids will be supporting english teams rather than our own. Just because a football player is paid £200k per week against a football player paid £30k (celtic) this doesn't necessarily mean that they are streets ahead of the latter. Yes I agree they will be better, however. how much is the question. The English game and its money is creating a vortex in football. All monies for tv rights, clubs, players signings/ wages, fans entry and merchandise should be capped and regulated worldwide. Its the only way fairness and competition will come back into the game.

Moral outrage is borne out of the numbers.

People jump up and down at bankers, politicians etc earning big bucks (very small compared to EPL footballers) but don't have an issue with moodie Rooney earning £1m every month?


5.) 01 Sep 2016 11:46:14
It's just the same money being recycled, your lucky if there was 400m fresh being spent. They love to inflate and market themselves like that, anything to get people to talk about them. We were notorious for outspending everyone so if you want to apply that then your discrediting your own club. Majority of there money goes to wages. That's why I can't understand people going mental of Leicester winning the league, I don't know any other team of that calibre that can afford 200k a week wages, yet all you here is "they only spent 20m" or whatever there still massive wage spenders. We allow England to market themselves and to spend themselves into the billions by buy watching there games, buying there strips talking about there garbage football. This has in turn forced the other members of the top leagues to get four teams into the champions league so they can try to compete with them. I walk about and all I see is foreign strips and its embarrassing.


6.) 01 Sep 2016 11:47:34
And so little is said because ££££ in taxes and exposure of the country in general. West Minister is bias to England and always will be.


7.) 01 Sep 2016 13:27:46
rec bob I don't understand your comment mate! its just like us because we have a bigger fan base its got nothing to do with that if that was the case then most of the English clubs would have a bigger fan base than us which they don't but they can still spend 35 million on bang average players!
its just nonsense!


8.) 01 Sep 2016 16:51:37
We have more fans willing to pay money to watch us play than the other Scottish teams and that's why we have dominated Scottish Football. More people are willing to pay to watch the EPL (worldwide on Sky) than any other league and that is why they dominate the transfer market. Simples. It's just different markets, same rules apply.


9.) 01 Sep 2016 18:01:29
Just my opinion Bears but with the right coach there ain't a huge difference between a 1-2m player and one at 250k-500k.


10.) 01 Sep 2016 14:03:08
There is no way that the English League can sustain this type of spending indefinitely. All that it will take is for a few Arabs/ Americans/ Far Easterners to lose interest and walk away and/ or SKY to pull the plug and the whole of English football would dissolve overnight. I am not saying that it will happen any time soon but all good things come to an end, we as a club should be brutally aware of that above all others.

England may have a strong (but not the strongest) League but their National team have suffered enormously because of it. Joe Hart on loan to Torino! Really?

To me that epitomises everything that is wrong with English football.

If their National keeper can't get a game in the league then the rest may as well call it a day.

The poster who said that the EPL is destroying Scottish Football must have made a typo and meant SPL. Quite how one league flourishing destroys another doesn't make sense.

Scottish football has destroyed itself through gross mismanagement, years of neglect, lack of funding and ultimately a product that nobody wants to watch be it on tv or live.

We should be grateful of whatever deal SKY, BT or BBC give us because in my opinion it is a donation not sponsorship.

Sorry to say it but some of you guys on here are a disgrace and an embarrassment to the club you supposedly support.

One minute everything is rosy, then everything is shit!

How many new players do we have?

How long have we been away from the top league?

We don't have £20m to spend so this year was always going to be a steep learning curve.

The "good day" supporters should be embarrased and get a life - opinions are welcome but all of this negativity about the team, the players, the board and the manager is sooooo dull.

Get a grip or GTF.

Totally agree. Worst fans on the planet. 4 games in. Calling for heads. You told me this time last year we would've had Barton kranjcar etc I would've laughed at you.


2.) 27 Aug 2016 08:06:44
Sorry but we're no different to any other fans when ther team isn't doing well. do agree tho that some people take it to far like "sacked by xmas" comments but every1s entitled to vent the frustration.

Impudent chaps from Gibraltar have made Celtic look like Macaques.

Think they would struggle to get out of SPFL 2 on this performance.

They will of course get their act together so it will be important that we gel as a team ASAP.

Worst result in British football history, end off.

Is it me or does that fact that Iceland, Albania, Austria, Northern Ireland etc with populations similar of (much) smaller to Scotland can compete and qualify for major tournaments not highlight that we need a complete root and branch clearout of the football authorities?

This is not about Strachan, McLeish, Voghts etc, it's simply that we are not developing skillful, hungry players who can perform at a level that can make the nation proud.

Rangers played nice football last season but apart from a few flashes from a few other teams, the quality is dismal - we will never compete with England, Spain or even Switzerland unless we develop a few genuine stars and upgrade the average professional player.

My personal view is that Scotland suffers from a multiplicity of problems that detract from having a quality football team. It starts at grass roots level where the structure and financial support is not there as it is elsewhere in world football. The SFA has to be at fault here and the government could certainly help in this.

There also, IMO, needs to be more coaching for schools football and boys club football coaches, and children need to be helped develop their football skills. At that level it is not just about winning!

At International Level we need a full management team like Warburton and Weir or like the guy at Celtic that thinks out of the box rather than the usual Scottish Managers with, in general, their old fashioned brand of 'Scottish type' kick and rush football!

The Baxters' of this world might not be there any more but, as we have seen with McKay, there is still a lot of quality youngsters.

One of the problems is exactly the opposite to what you said Tom42. I lived in Germany for years, played, coached and have friendships with people in the football world over there. You can't say that they don't develop players, know how to win, or not skillful. Yet from a very young age they know the roles of there position and know how to win. At a football tournament at even 6,7 year old will get a trophy if last, yet as the better they do, the trophy gets bigger and better. Winners is the one they all want.
Let's look at our namby pampy country where you can't even tell someone they came first at a school sports day as everyone must be the same, i. e. Taking part that counts. If it's the taking part that counts, why does everyone get onto teams backs when the loose or get put out a competition. The drive to exceed and be the best at whatever sport, subject or even person must be there otherwise being Jo-average will always be the norm to the youth of today.

I'm sure most of us did some daft things in our youth (I can't image what I'd have got up to if I was awash with cash) but most of us grow up and turn out to be ok.

If JC is ready to mature and can be managed well, he can score even more goals than I'd welcome him at Ibrox.

There are not too many angels out there who can score goals

PM played at the very highest level yet some on here thinks he's crap - OFFS what are you on?

Sure we couldn't afford him but would grab him if given the chance. he'll most likely end up moving to a Scottish 2nd div team like Juve or Inter

Yeah boys. slag off the current batch of players for underperforming and turn down a better player just because he left our sinking ship to look after his own career and family.
Sound a bit like cutting off your blue noses in spite of your faces!
Not sure how many turncoat supporters would cling on to their current jobs hoping for security whilst turning down the offer of much higher salaries.
Get real.

DK and MW coming good on their promises.

Buying success today does nothing for the club's future.

Investing in facilities, youth development and carefully searching for low cost/ high potential players is where we are at for the foreseeable future.

Get rid of the legacy/ legal/ ashley issues and then the club can really move forward - at the moment the board has one hand tied behind their back.

Agree, tonnes of possession but rarely do we have the razor sharp pass that cuts open the defences.

Bit more speed required rather than constantly slowing the ball down

We're missing Kranjar in that role

4.10 is not a lot for a burger. it's 2017!

If Barry is worth £6m, we should be charging £10 for a burger

Seems to me that we won? Would have preferred a more composed game but stylish silky football that ends in defeat is not something we need right now

What about. how high will we finish in the league next season if MW coaching and tactics really click and he manages to get the right blend of youth and experience in the first team?

See, positive slant not so difficult

Suppose you think Dk will use it to buy a new house?

Why would you automatically assume the MW would not be given the £6m to spend on replacements?

Who from the club has said anything to form this opinion?

More negativity from the support?
