Hi all, was just thinking to myself, it's unbelievable the amount of UCL Qualifiers we have to play, when teams like Burnley, Yes. Burnley! Have access to a European competition for finishing 7th! Yes there is some amazing players in the Premier League, But I think its ruining football massively!

Managers in and out 24/ 7, stadiums with no atmosphere, no real passion and desire from players, it's simply just a job to them! Ryan sessegnon, Fullham player, 17 year old and valued at £22mil upwards! Kieran Tierney has to be upwards of £30mil surely! none of this ''he plays in a pub league'', he has European exposure and plays for one of the biggest clubs in the world for god sake! Wanyama, Larsson, VVD, Forster etc, the arrogance of SOME English football fans is unreal! absolutely nonsensical!

Brendan its disgusting how backwards Scottish football has went. The route cause of it broadcasting rights. We get £18m yet Denmark gets £63m. There is a far worldwide attraction watching any Celtic or Rangers game than a Bronby or Copenhagen game.

We have developed some world class players over the years, that if our efforts over in Europe recently on a far scale lower budget than major revenue clubs (since 2003) was more respected then who knows where we would be if we got likes of transfer fee (I think £75m) Van Dijk to Liverpool.

We have a consistent track record of producing EPL or above standard players. Getting to stage now where I would be happy taking gamble selling a top player at a bargain price with 50% sell on clause.

The game cannot continue the way it is, let's see how the greatest league in the world goes if Sky withdraws its cash!

I stopped caring about the disparity years ago and have just accepted our place in the pecking order.

The money we get from TV compared to other leagues is disgusting. Outwith ourselves there was a pretty decent fight for 2nd place and all the Euro spots. Getting even an extra £3m per club per season would make a huge difference to the players clubs could take in, and also improvements to their youth set ups, Stadium etc. The SPL needs new leadership and as i said before Barry Hearn has revitalised Snooker and Boxing and has previously said he would love the chance to do the same with Scottish football. Get him in!

Spot on Brendan. I can’t stand English football any more, I used to watch the games between the top teams but now even they are boring to watch. People in England think players are dying to play there because of their great league, it’s actually due to the obscene wages offered to average players.

Undoubtedly the quality is better than our league but it’s definitely not the best in the world, yet they are paid the most because of good marketing. Sky has been saying for years “it’s the best league in the world”, they invented that title.

I’ve always wondered if instead of players being humble about an upcoming match e. g. “I’m sure it’ll be a tough game” instead players talk about how easy it’s going to be, how they will win 5-0, much more like the build up to a boxing match. Sounds a bit crazy but many people in England watch the Glasgow derby because they expect a feisty affair. Who knows but we need to stop copying the EPL and try something else because it’s not working.

you’re bang on Brendan, all the talk off people saying the premier league is the best league in the world and all the teenagers would agree. Nah I’m 18 and think it’s so boring, I grew up supporting Man Utd thanks to sir Alex and ronaldo but honestly I can’t even be bothered watching them play it’s that boring, and don’t get me started on the managerial appointments it’s a complete joke how many magnets get sacked and get back in a job due to so many bottem end epl teams sacking there managers. yes there are some great players but if the money was in our favour then we would have the best players because we have everting the big clubs don’t.

all the epl have is money . no heart. No passion. no pride. no tradition. No loyalty. no iconic derby.

To be fair to Burnley they're one of the only proper clubs in that league. They don't spend anywhere near the amount of some of the teams finishing below them and they're not particularly glamorous so you know their fans genuinely love the club and not just a bunch of selfie-taking tourists. It's nonsense that 7th in PL gets Europe but I'd much rather them than one of the "big" clubs like West Ham.

Stan when did Barry hearn say he would love to revitalise Scottish football? If he did, why is he not in right now? Who makes that call? The only time I've heard him talking about Scottish football was as a guest on CLYDE and I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that he said he wouldn't have time to do anything. That was 1-2 years ago so maybe he's changed his tune.

Steph this wasn't that long ago maybe last summer. Said we sell ourself short as a product and in general we look to England rather than seeing how we can improve ourselves. He probably isn't involved because we have Doncaster in charge and refuses to go anywhere, infact he now wants to be part of the SFA aswel. Until we have a complete overhaul of the SPL and SFA and have one ruling body run by people we can trust to take our game forward nothing will change. Jobs for the boys/ dinosaurs.

17 May 2018 16:19:24
So who appointed Doncaster? If Barry hearn has said he'll do it then whoever appointed Doncaster has to grow a set n sack him, Barry hearn could sell snow to the Eskimos he would have our league earning treble what it does now.

Totally agree Steph, boxing was on it's knees with the success of MMA just shows you what can be done especially with the deal Matchroom signed in the States this week. Eddie might be the mouthpiece but Barry is still a huge influence. Snooker has never been better and the price money for finishing runners up in a final is remarkable. John Higgins got roughly £180,000 for being runner up 2 weeks ago. When you put that against what an SPL club recieves over an entire season from tv or the income from where they are placed then something is far wrong.

I agree to all the above, i'm not being biased, but we, celtic are leading the way in Scotland! Not just skill and ability wise, but also showing everyone that we control the prices our players are, not the English or their media and pundits! everyone should follow suit and imo ramp up the prices for their star players/ youngsters!
