There is chatter about a British Super League as a potential alternative to the ill-fated ESL. I'd definitely be more open to this sort of thing than the ESL where it's more sensible geographically - like the Dutch-Belgian merger that's being spoken about. However, we can't pontificate about the greedy few and then jump ship to a different closed shop. For me, there would need to be a proper Scottish-English pyramid merger with a fair promotion and relegation system where not only us and Rangers have the chance to play bigger games and make more money. Unless the other Scottish teams had no interest and told us not to let the door hit us on the way out.

P. S. Well done to the women's team last night, maybe Kennedy should make the men watch their game today and show them what it's like to show a bit of heart and pride.

I would think Kennedy has had enough of watching fannies this season.

I think I’d need to feel British before I didn’t have an issue with Celtic deciding to play in a British league.

Secondly the ESL proposal was morally bankrupt. An elite club for the privileged. Salvation for the few. Did you ever see the film Titanic? Do you remember the character dressed as a woman pushing woman and weans out the road to get in the lifeboat and secure his escape?

He was Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Chelsea. If Celtic took part in anything remotely similar that would finish me. Some things are bigger than money and success. If the Church of England is the Tory party at prayer the six aforementioned clubs are the Tory party at play. And even the Tories thought the ideas was reprehensible.

Like it or not, we're based in Britain JFP so you should be comfortable enough with it by now lol. Think we definitely agree on the morality of the ESL though. There would need to be total transparency and fairness for any restructuring to even get off the ground.

I'd take it or leave it Kev. Like you say, providing it was a proper league system with relegation/ promotion. Part of it excistes me, part of me thinks I've enjoyed watching us in a 'backwater' for 30 years so what's another 30. But we hear this every year and the answer is the same. There's plenty clubs down here scared of Celtic, or at least, what they could become.

Spot on Jim! Outside the big dogs, they'd be dead against it because they know we'd take 2 of their spots.

There’s a big difference between being located geographically within the British Isles and feeling British with all that entails.

Anyway I still haven’t given up hope to an engineering solution to the border from the Solway to the Tweed. It’s Ireland’s greatest gift the feckn Irish Sea.

As the song says.

The sea, oh the sea, oh a gradh geal mo chroide
Long may it stay between England and me
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
Thank God we're surrounded by water.

A few years ago the English were talking about reconstructing a Premiership 1 and a Premiership 2 and we would be invited into the 2nd league.
It prevented Celtic from starting at the bottom of their pyramid and it also kept some English clubs contented, that we weren’t going straight into their top league.

Oldkilly loved that comment about fannies 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

Border patrol would be busy on a Saturday! 20 years ago when I was a young lad I would have been right up for it. Now I think no way. Horrible league that only cares about money. All clubs should be looking to improve the Scottish game. We have had a lot of good young talent in recent years. Hopefully the new conference league will give Aberdeen a good chance to qualify and we can continue to build the reputation of the league. With Hearts replacing Hamilton and possibly Dundee coming back in place of County or Killie next season should see the standard improve. Onwards and upwards.
