Also, why is Pele by default seen as the best player ever?  How good was the Brazilian and American leagues?  Irrelevant of that, he was obviously an amazing goalscorer, but from any footage I have saw of him he didn't seem to have that jaw dropping dribbling ability that the like of Best, Cruyff, Maradona or Messi had/have.  Is it purely down to winning 3 world cups?  How good were that Brazilian team, i.e. would they have potentially won those tournaments without him?  The World Cup seems to get a lot more credit when debating the best of all time, whereas inning Champions Leagues are possibly a greater achievement given the fact that the standard is higher at elite club level than it is at international level.  Why is Best never considered as the best ever, purely down to his country of birth and the obvious fact that he never won a world cup?  People may mention years at the top level, and yes he did retire early but at the same time he was at the top level very early and consequently had a decent number of seasons at the top.
Pele was a fraud. Loads of his goals were unofficial and he played at a poor standard during his whole club career. His reputation lives solely off the back of being one of the star men in one of the best football teams of all time, but statistically him (and Maradona) get nowhere near Messi as the GOAT. It's nothing more than people wanting to be "different" by avoiding to pick the obvious choice and letting their nostalgic bias get in the way.

Let's not carried away and let the nostalgia blind us just cos he's dead. Messi is quite comfortably clear of Maradona, even Ronaldo is.

Classless and entitled this crowd. One minute hes the best thing since sliced bread and the next people want him chased after a few dodgy results, in November ;D Celtic fans are as fickle as there are around. No faith in the team, who have shown themselves to be spineless, but it's Lennon who has been made to be the scapegoat. Embarrassing behaviour. Celtic will still win the league, and comfortably, only if Lennon stays.

According to wiki city have won 26 major honours in their history. 14 since 2011, the rest in the previous 130 years.

What counts as major honours surely a trophy is a trophy is it not?

They’ve won 28 trophies and 11 in the last 12 years.

Not counting the Charity shield.
Check it then - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7048863/Man-City-trophies-2008-history-before.html  ;D
Your argument makes no sense. If a trophy is a trophy then why omit the Community Shield?

The facts are that they had two division 1 titles and a few FA and League cups in the rest of their hundred odd years of existence. That's obviously shocking. Therefore like PSG as per my original point, they're a team with no real history or tradition, but now capable of winning trophies due to their money, so it doesn't really make a difference if Celtic lose the league this year to a club like this.

Rangers to win their first league title since 2010/11?
#That's not possible. That club doesn't exist anymore.
Do most Celtic fans still trot this out?  In any case, is it not worse to miss out on 10 in a row to a new club with no hostory / pedigree?

Yes.

That's irrelevant. Sure PSG and Man city have no history or pedigree but theyre still capable of winning trophies.
All a bit petty.  Do you also now refer to the 'Glasgow Derby' as opposed to the Old Firm?

Always! Like a f**king beacon. It's amazing how you and others come out of the woodwork.
Was never "Old Firm". That was a media construct. Any alliance between the two ended wkth their sectarian policies of the early 1900's.
To poster above Man City had plenty of pre PL history.
No they haven't.

Not sure how you measure history? They would have been one of top 8 major trophy winners in England, always had massive crowds.
The fact that theyve won more trophies since they won the lottery 12 years ago compared to the other 100 odd years previous says it all. The havent had plenty of history.

They’re older than Celtic and been in existence for over 120 years ... but sure they have no history!!

Any wonder why we like to wind up Celtic fans the delusions of grandeur are hilarious.

I like to see Celtic do well in Europe and beat Rangers but let’s not kid ourselves that winning 10 in a row is anything more to be celebrated than the Dubs winning their 10th Leinster last night!

Celtic not winning 10 in a row is a bigger story than them actually winning it.
Yea they don't.
Most clubs are as old as that. Im talking proper history, not how the club has been on the go ;D

Obviously by this stage 99.9% of times it’s a wind up, but because people like you take it for real, therefore the wind up lives. Are you not just a bigot who is consumed with fantasies about the ignorant beliefs of the other side so you can feel better about your own sack of shit?
Not sure why he finds himself on a GAA forum either in that case. Probably to be a WUM.

I'm no Dub but I'm sure there wasn't this much of a meltdown when Kerry cleaned up back in the day.
As a few lads have already mentioned, they have 15 players like every other team. It's up for the others to raise their game.
It's not professional football where they can buy the best players, they just have them at the minute. Their dominance won't last forever just like Kerry's didn't.
I'm not arsed whether they lose or not any time soon. They are an absolute juggernaut of a team that play attractive attacking football that is good to watch, the way the game should be played, against dire defensive shyte this weather.
Whether or not their dominance is good for the championship i'm not getting into, but thank god for the dubs for the way they play and entertain.
I'd expect a good few to crawl off the Donegal bandwagon after that.

I assume you're a prod as you're getting a bit triggered by this.
