    I'm not trolling at all. Just looking at your Scottish Premiership as an English outsider.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Premiership

    It's an endless procession of Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers scrapping it out. The two Premiership level clubs in Scotland capable of packing in 50,000.

    You then have about 5 clubs which in England would be considered Championship level. What, Hibs, Hearts, Dundee and Dundee United and Aberdeen. Gates of 10,000?

    The rest are tiny clubs. Almost amateur level. In my view, Celtic and Rangers should play in the English Premiership and encounter some real opposition. It would be fun.

    Good to see the Celtic support standing by their manager.

    I think celtic will start picking up again... a good win on thursday would be the first i'd expect. They have a good run of league games v lower quality teams and mostly at home.

    it comes from too much success without a huge amount of contest, league wise. A lot of these green brigade types, like rangers equ, are young, and as far as celtic kids are concerned have never known losing.. No-one likes losing and Celtic have lost nothing yet, but many fans are concerned of facing it it seems.
    Tbh, losing is a good thing as it makes you try to do better and you also enjoy victories better too I find.

    Aw, Maradona has died!

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54810392

    We used to have a joke at Coventry City with our stripey white and sky blue strip in the 80's. It was just like watching Argentina... without Maradona.

    Well God Bless you Diego. Flippin' good footballer. Even if inclined to bend the rules. "Hand of God" indeed. Sheer trickery.

    I am slightly mystified at what is going on at Derby County.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/championship/table

    One of the biggest clubs in the East Midlands with a solid 20,000 fanbase. On a rare occasion might win the biggest prize, Brian Clough I am looking at you.

    Really can't see Derby in League One. There must be something fundamentally rotten at Derby. A mystery.

    Good win by the Sky Blues on Wednesday. Beat Cardiff 1-0. 3 points above the drop!

    Heads up for Radio 4 on Friday morning at 9. Arsene Wenger on Desert Island Diiscs. Should be interesting:

    Looking forward to that.
