No we weren’t. You might be discussing  a poll by the bbc in which more Celtic fans voted than anyone else, but I was commenting on the video a page or two back of Alex Ferguson humouring Celtic fans at a Celtic event by saying winning the European cup was the greatest achievement in British football.

Think @kennie makevin is right to highlight Nottingham Forest’s rise from flirting with relegation from tier 2 to league Champions, double league cup winners and double European cup winners in the space of 3 years. For all the talk of Pep, Jurgen and Ancelotti as the best ever,  Brian Clough has to be in the conversation.

It wasn’t Celtic fans asking him the question and he had absolutely no reason to say that as none of the questions led him to say that. Furthermore as an ex Rangers player he knows saying something like this loses him favour so again why say if he genuinely doesn’t believe it? Makes no sense.

But yeah you and Kennie, who refuses to give Celtic any credit for anything and doesn’t have an objective view, definitely have an opinion that holds more weight than one of the greatest football managers of all time.

Let’s get real

You have an opinion and that’s ok but that is all it is.

It’s wild how a wee daft BBC poll has upset some people 

If you don’t think the 67 team that won it all, then fair enough. 

Just don’t get annoyed that others do, or don’t be petty trying to devalue the achievements they made.

It’s close season on a football forum m8. Wtf sort of debate were you expecting?

It was very amusing.

Oh young Jinky you may be a master of putting little meme(?)things in posts, a talent that continues to pass me by, but if you genuinely think Celtic's sole European Cup win is a greater acheivement than Nottingham Forest's consecutive triumphs in the late 70s then you probably know less about football than Owen Wilson.

Not annoyed or trying to devalue achievements. Just placing those acheivements in context. Why does that annoy you ??

I honestly think Sir Alex knows lots more about football than you do. Wouldn’t you agree? 

Not if he genuinely thinks Celtic winning the European Cup is the greatest achievement in the history of football he doesn't.

OK Kennie.

It's the equivalent of John Cleese being quest of honour at a dinner honouring Dawn French & declaring 'The Vicar of Dibley' to be the towering achievement of British sitcom.  Lovely thing to say to faithful, very polite and respectful but utter nonsense.

To take you back to a while ago when you took umbrage to me saying Celtics 1967 win was unequalled then answer me this.

In either of those years did Nottingham Forest win every single trophy they played for?

In either of those years did Nottingham Forest win with 11 Englishmen all born within 30 miles of Nottingham?

If the answer to any of the above is no then you have my answer and it’s pretty obvious the view isn’t just exclusive to me or Celtic fans or people just wouldn’t bother their arse voting for these things or offering an opinion would they? It seems a far as opinions go it’s you dear Kennie who seems to be pishing into the wind

I wish I could say I’m sorry that this seems to rattle you but I’m not, it’s pretty funny.

And below is a picture of the greatest club side to exist should you ever forget who they are 😉💚

I’ve seen some shit takes however to suggest Sir Alex Ferguson knows less about football than tedious Kenny from P&B is comedy fucking gold.

I see no Puskas, no Di Stefano, no Cruyff, no Neeskens. You are not showing a picture of the greatest club side ever. And as I saw all of those pictured above play in the flesh I am unlikely to forget who they are. You appear to be under the illusion that a team's greatness is dependent on their members all being born within a certain radius of the club's ground. A bizarre and utterly illogical criteria. My assertion that Nottingham Forest have a legitimate claim to be a greater club side than Celtic is based purely on the fact that their winning of promotion, the English championship and two European Cups in successive seasons was an achievement at a higher level of difficulty than winning the Scottish League, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup , Glasgow Cup & European Cup.  As is Real Madrid's five consecutive European Cups from 1955/56. What Celtic of 67-72 can claim to be is the greatest Scottish club side to ever exist. That is beyond dispute. That they were the first British & non-latin club to win the European Cup is a wonderful feat and can never be taken away from them.......but all to that does not make them the greatest club side in the world ever.  Why can't Celtic fans just accept those well deserved accolades instead of trying to be bigger and better and 'firster' and 'localer' than all other clubs ?
