Indeed but you were responding and said yourself about Liverpool fans...Liverpool are in England.... so it would be pretty simple to make the connection as to which 'premiership' you were referring.

You reckon? You really think all of that is correct? You can sit there and tell me that all the Celtic supporters there were genuine followers of the celts for purely football reasons, have been and always will be, with a vast knowledge of the ins and outs of their first team squad and beyond? I highly doubt it. I would say there were a lot of Liverpool supporters who knew just as much if not more about their club as Celtic's. But it does bring me back to your/my point about TV EPL fans, you say they are in the same boat, is that so. I bought an LFC ticket for a mid week match in December at home to Norwich, hardly a glamour tie given time of week, year and opposition but yet it cost me £49 - Celtic's home game against Inverness next week or whenever it is costs £26 to buy...almost half the price, the other half could get you a night in a B&B or something, so you see it aint quite the same boat these fans are in. To get to an 'EPL' game from here is extortionate.

Out of interest, what are the other costs associated with a trip to Liverpool vs a trip to Glasgow? Are flights and hotels that much more expensive in Liverpool to consider it extortionate? Are there other expenses incurred in the stadium that make it extortionate such as a match program, food, etc...?

I paid £28 for a ticket for my last game last season at Celtic Park, so to follow Liverpool costs around about £21 difference. Add in associated costs and the difference will not be that great % wise. I reckon travelling to Glasgow from Ireland on a day trip for a match would cost £150 all in, so to Liverpool would be £21 more or £171 i.e. over the course of a season a Celtic fan could afford 7 matches to 6 for the Liverpool fan (approximately). Forgiving the fag packet maths. Also forgive me if I'm wrong but the original argument was about why the Liverpool fans were so quiet compared to the 'Tic fans.

As a Celtic man i think Liverpool are not that far away from competing for 4th spot, they need 3 signings (2 possibly if Suarez takes his teeth out of his hole), i know we beat you on Sat with a reserve team but if Suarez had been playing on sat the result would have been very different and don't forget Celtic keepers made some cracker saves too in that game (at least 5). Sturridge made a difference when he came on and we Coutinho is very good.

On a separate issue why were Pool very quiet on Sat...feckers hardly sang a song and left up to us to create an atmosphere ;)

If by atmosphere you mean turning your back to the game while jumping up and down like lunatics then fair enough....
I prefer to watch the games myself... ;)

YNWA was pretty awesome in fairness...

The reason for the subdued Liverpool fans is that none of them knew the songs. TV EPL fans!

Am I the only who dies a little inside when I hear that term!! Too much Fox Saccar mate!

Could have typed 'The Barclay's English Premier League as shown on Super Sky Sports Sundays' except I am a lazy sorta bassa and find English football as entertaining as fly fishing on TV a lot of the time.

Could have just said 'premiership' too.

And given most of them would have been from here, at touching £50 a ticket plus flights and accommodation if needed, you could forgive them for watching from home each week.

Could have said 'Premiership' but then again that could mean the SCOTTISH Premiership. More than English football out there. Celtic fans seemed to make a bit of racket despite being in the same boat as far as travel costs, ticket prices, etc are concerned. I can guarantee lots of the Liverpool fans at that game couldn't tell you much about Liverpool outside the first team and a few of the star players at that. Not really a criticism of these people or Liverpool FC as Celtic had their fair share of hangers on when Martin O'Neill was in charge. More just an observation of the type of fans who live in Ireland and follow an English team. Most of them are fair weather fans and may have even flitted between teams.

I see Locky McCurdy named in the Johnnies championship squad on the county website. Is this the original Locky or a son? If it is THE Locky he must be hitting 40+!

Irrespective of all that has been said, big J has played at the best level, managed and now has the stones to referee, and for a first year at it, I thought he did a spot on job! Well done big man, practice what you preach!

+1

Played football with Jackie and I can bet few on here would criticise his reffing to his face!
