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.

Well if Alex Ferguson genuinely believes Celtic winning the European Cup trumps Forest & the Real of Puskas, Di Stefano etc then I can but disagree....Is that not allowed ??

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 ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Again you avoided answering the question

And you mean like this one of Cesar and Di Stefano when Celtic…….sorry Jimmy Johnstone single handedly took them to pieces?

Want another try?

The forest side you mention was over the course of 3 seasons, the Real team was over 5 seasons. The vote was for a team over single season, that Celtic team won everything they entered, unlike the others you mentioned.

Stop being a weirdo and tagging me into post thinking it’s somehow going to help your daft wee argument 

Help an argument? There is no argument petal. 

You said you had zero respect for anyone that had recieved awards from the royals, I pointed out former celtc heroes had and you doubled down. 

Having zero respect for Billy McNeill is mind blowing to me but perhaps you are that much of a weirdo.

Paul McStay and Danny McGrain also have MBE’s and nobody can question their dedication and service to Celtic and Scotland. 
 

I cannot understand how any Celtic fans would not respect guys like them and Big Billy. What a mental attitude to have just because they received an award from the Queen.

Tbh I’m older now and I think a lot of the younger fans will have more respect for guys like Sutton and Hartson and will follow them on social media due to their controversial mutterings rather than honouring and respecting legends like those 3 guys.

You evidently do care as you're lashing out and your head is on the verge of leaving your neck. 

I had a look for that wee exchange this morning as I left it after you (rightly) pointed out Larsson etc. 

Which topic was it on - or was it deleted?

It was in the Axe The Monarchy thread in General Discussion.

The big man is beaming in that photo.

You can be against an action of someone, such as their acceptance of an Order of the British Empire, without being against that person in their totality. @Albus Bulbasaur Go and stop being a bad faith wee slimeball everywhere on this site.

You mustn't be familiar with the English language then. Look up the defintion of zero then come back to me. 

How about you stop being so precious and put me on ignore you wee shitebag.

You're going out of your way to demand someone accept the literal interpretation of a turn of phrase to prove some point to yourself and think they're the one being precious?

I'm not going out of my way to prove any point let alone to myself. 

The point has already decidedly been made by the poster I was laughing at here. FF's post was very precious.

And, as if said before, that was an absolutely wonderful achievement and makes that Celtic side by some distance the finest ever produced in Scotland.  What it doesn't mean is that they are the finest ever produced in the world.  It really isn't that controversial a statement.  If you can't see that a side whose record in their first five European Cups is Won, Won, Won, Won & Won are operating at a higher level than the side whose first five are Won, Knocked out in the 1st Qualifying Round, Knocked out in the Quarter Final, Runners Up  & Knocked out in the Quarter Final, then the use of reason seems a waste of time.

The point being that the won, won, won, won and won team was made up of different players over the course of 5 years, the vote we’re discussing was for the best side over 1 season, if you can’t understand that then this is definitely a waste of time.
