I do not know if I missed something, with this 'something' being the trigger for this, but all of a sudden the topic on plenty of premier league managers minds again is that of 'Celtic and Rangers joining the premier league.'
This is something that has rumbled on for several years, but during this international break - and perhaps it is this international break that sees this topic rise again as people cannot think of anything else to talk about? - it has returned.
It appears that Villa manager Martin O'Neill is 'in favour' of this, as is Everton's David Moyes and then we have Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who has to have a say about everything as he knows everything, also seemingly happy to see them join the English game?
My question is why would they want this?
Why should we allow the 'Scottish giants' into the premier league?
They are Scottish so they should stay in the Scottish premier league - if they, and the 'super powers' in the English, or even European game, want this then why do they nod sod off and create this 'super league' that is also often spoken about, is the 'almighty' champions league not enough...
I just cannot get my head round the thought as to why we should, let alone would, let these Scottish clubs join the premier league? Well, join the English league at any level - it is not our fault that the Scottish game is so poor, football and financially wise - that said maybe you 'could' argue that all the money in the English game is ruining the 'British' game?
I know we have a few Welsh sides playing in the English game, and quite why this is I honestly could not say - but this has been the way I have always known it, and for God knows how long, again why it is I do not know, anyone?
Ok, lets just say Celtic and Rangers 'were' allowed to join the English league WHY should they be allowed to jump straight into the premier league?
The dream - although in all honesty it is not always as 'wonderful' as you hope once you get there, not that I am saying I want out mind - for all championship, league one, league two and non-league clubs is to make it into the 'promised land' that is the premier league.
So, how is it 'fair' - not that fair counts for much these days - that Celtic and Rangers 'could' be able to bypass the pyramid system and leap straight into the top flight?
I would hope that this does not happen anyway, but if it did then make them start at the bottom like the rest do and work their way up to the top!
Am I the only one against the idea of Celtic and Rangers joining the premier league - and am I also the only one who cannot under stand why the likes of O'Neill, Moyes and Redknapp would not be against it?
As always share your thoughts below...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
