I see you've been fooled into believing the myth of the epl. Yes it does have attractive games like arsenal v united, city v liverpool and spurs v chelsea but it also has bog standard very average games like stoke v huddersfield, watford  v stoke, swansea v bournemouth etc. These clubs are filled with average players very few of whom would improve the current celtic team. Of course there are a lot of players there who could come in and do a similar job but they wouldn't make any significant improvements. Mclean is pretty much up to the standard okay but he's not an improvement and he's on v high wages.

I'm glad we're now in agreement - the top of the spl is about the same standard as the lower half of the epl or championship. The bottom half of the spl is more like league 1 standard. Celtic wouldn't make the top 6 in the epl as things stand but if they were in that league with the immediate 100 million plus injection they would get from tv money they would soon be challenging at the top of the table.

I wonder how much will have to paid to compensate for being called a super provo, that "would reflect the seriousness and gravity of the offending comments".
I see the Nolan program is not being held responsible for the slanderous comments of its guests but the guests have to take it in the goolies themselves.
'Slanderous' sounds so much better in a nordie accent.

James McCleans a great lad.  He's been Ireland's best player for the last 2/3 years.  Just right to take boys like this up

Tom Elliott got £75,000, later reduced to £48,000 when Phil Flanagan tweeted : ‘Tom Elliot talks to @StephenNolan about the past. I wonder if he will reveal how many people he harassed or shot as a member of the UDR.’  Mind you I don’t think Phil ever paid him a red Rex!!
Careful now

Even a nominal fee which I presume he will give to charity will be enough the ignominy and having to make a public apology is enough!!

“Super provo” what an absolute ****!!

Nominal fee my arse.  The UUP and DUP have used politics to line their pockets. Hit him hardest where it hurts.

I am not a fan of Nolan, he is quick however to call out remarks or callers/contributors who say anything remotely slanderous.

Considering the amount of nutjobs up there, you'd think the program would be broadcast with some 10 seconds delay, whereby 10 seconds  of anything contentious said could be wiped out with pressing the red button (it's always a red button).
But at least the station doesn't have to take responsibility.
