honestly what’s big fascination of 9 and 10 iar? it’s scottish football and means jack shit to anyone. who cares if you dominate scottish football. europe is where it’s at. terrible away record especially in europe. face it celtic are third rate in europe

I would have thought the fascination for 9/10 iar was fairly obvious for the fans of the gruesome. Both have won 9 iar. Should Celtic get another (which imho, wouldn't compare with their first in any shape, form or fashion), it will give them something to boast about (to Rangers fans), "We've won 9 iar twice, na, na, na na, na.

Should they win 10 it would be SCENES. (At least for them and their separated brethren.) The rest of us probably won't care that much.

I don't think they'll get 10 iar. Time will obviously tell.

For fcuk sake. You’ve won every domestic trophy for the last three seasons, every league championship for the last eight years, goodness knows how many cups in those eight years too, have had some big European nights, and got to see your team play the likes of Man City, and compete with them.... all while also being able to pish yourselves laughing as your bitter rivals did a Norwegian Blue.

If you ‘blow’ 9 in a row though, the Celtic BoD better prepare for what is coming their way? It won’t be pretty? What’s going to happen? Mass boycott? (No pun intended), Green Brigade march through George Square in protest? Yellow vests, and you’ll all fcuk off to smash up Paris?

The entitlement. The sheer fcuking entitlement.

Support your mob in Europe - my fcuking arse! Would rather eat my own shite with a teaspoon.

"Support Celtic in Europe or you're destroying the NHS!!!"

I'm sure they're crying into their whisky in the Cowdenbeath boardroom at the loss of the ten million quid they're missing out on because Celtic won't be buying one of their players. Not to mention the lack of the redevelopment of the area around Parkhead, which would also have benefited the Central Park faithful.

I wouldn't expect you to understand. You do not have a rivalry like we have with the dead club(and their zombie reincarnation) and your team has no chance of ever rewriting the history books. Winning 10 in a row has never been done before in this country and it is a huge fucking deal to Celtic fans. Trivialise it or make it about self entitlement if you want. But make no mistake, it matters. 


In honesty, I would rather Celtic reach the group stages of the Champions League 3 times in a row than secure 9/10 in a row.

Would rather see scuddings from PSG and cash in the bank than see your team win its national championship. I am reminded of the end of the 2010 League Cup Final. I exited Hampden as fast as possible. On the streets, while the deadco players were still celebrating on the pitch, thousands of Disabled Tramplers were heading away from Hampden, not even arsed to see their ‘9 man heroes’ lift a national trophy, won in dramatic circumstances. It means that little to OF fans. If I ever get to the stage where I want anything for my team in lieu of the joy of seeing them lift a cup again, then it’s time to chuck it.

Magical nights at Celtic Park in the CL are something special, especially on the rare occasion we get a big scalp.

Yes undoubtedly there a good few scuddings along the way. I enjoy seeing my club up against the glitterati, pitting our wits against the top players.
Bragging rights don’t really cut it for me.
Sorry to disappoint.

You are effectively conceding title wins to the Sevco, correct? Which means that it would be the Sevco who played in the following season’s Champions League, not your team, yet you’d happily take that, if the trade off was three group stages in a row.

You would trade any chance of being in the group stages, for group stages.

Fcuk me mate, you’ve got me beat.

It's because they think it makes them a genuine Big Club. If they're being mentioned in the same breath as Paris St. Germain, even on the wrong end of a 5 or 6 goal rogering it puts them in the same 'league' as Paris St. Germain...except it doesn't of course.

The real big clubs from the big five leagues are now financially as far ahead of Celtic as Celtic are ahead of the 40 other SPFL teams.

I hope those Brand Name Clubs eventually get their closed shop Superleague if just to watch the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the Entitled Hordes as they bang their heads against an impenetrable  glass ceiling.

Not really. I’m not conceding anything. There’s seems more emphasis on this ‘in a row’ tiddlywinks game with a club who’s sole purpose is to drive themselves to the brink of bankruptcy for bragging rights over their rivals.

We get the European thing right, the rest will follow.

We did once have a Celtic team many moons ago that were considered a very difficult away tie in Europe. I’d like those days back.

“It is  a huge f*ck*ng deal to Celtic fans” not because it hasn’t been done before, it’s only because Rangers  haven’t done it before.

This is a good point, so eloquently put.

I don’t measure success on what has, or hasn’t been done by Rangers previously.

Finally got round to watching the Celtic TV highlights there.

High points for me were “I want to be Edouard” and the disco lights.

Imagine that was your job though, working the disco lights.

I know this is pure hypothesis, but if you said you’d rather have three CL group stages in a row than 9 or 10 titles IAR, then if you got your wish, and didn’t have the titles, pretty safe to say the Sevco would win them, hence you are indeed happy to concede titles to your rival, well, up until 2012 anyway. I simply don’t get the attitude that says you’d rather have group games than titles. If I were a Celtic fan (just came over all cold and clammy there), then my wish would be for 10, 20, 30 titles IAR, which surely would give you pleasure in winning the title in the first place, and then, with any luck (and avoidance of Lennon inspired shitebaggery against middling Romanians), you’d get a fair few group stage games.

Anyway, just a bit of talk, along the lines of ‘if I won the lottery, would I....’

Gary from Dundee has been a Celtic fan his whole life, in 25 years he’s attended over 7 games to watch the famous green and white.

He has already drafted a “LAWELL OUT” Banner should the unthinkable happen and someone else win a trophy.

He's from Lochee.

Dont ever call Lochee "Dundee" again, comprende?

The disco lights probably do look decent if you're actually in the ground but looked shite on the highlights.

I used to think that too. I think I posted on here defending the disco lights at one time. Then I saw them in action at the Pro14 final in May.

I was really surprised at how much worse they are in real life than on the telly, and I don't think they look much on the telly. Because they're just white (with the occasional, ineffective sickly green spot) and they're individuals floodlights not spaced evenly or in a continuous loop, it has much the same effect as being in your gran's kitchen when her fluorescent tube was on the blink.

Murrayfield does a better light show just by turning off the floodlights, because their stadium lights are purple and green and in a continuous pattern.
