Cheer Up Gordon Strachan: Celtic in The EPLBy: Thommo | February 20th, 2009

So farewell Gordon Strachan, moany-faced wee ginger genius. Farewell Rugby Park, Tannadice and the windswept Tulloch Cally Stadium in Inverness.
It’s hello to the bright lights of the EPL and the megabucks that go with it.
Dermot Desmond convinced the SKY money gods to let Celtic into the Premier League, and as everybody knows, we’ve been saying it for years, give us a chance with that TV money and you’ll see who the biggest club in Britain really is.
So sadly, it’s back to the Championship with Stoke and off to the SPL with Swansea. The English have been telling us for years that the SPL is the Euro-Disney League, let’s see how the Taffies get on up north.
Whats new? Celtic supporters will be paying an extra 4 quid a week to watch them get humped off Liverpool, but all existing players come with the team. I’ll be keeping a light touch on the managerial tiller to see if the current crop are good enough to compete in the EPL, no Pog or other “wonderkids” like Daryl on FM09, just the same old blokes who won 3 SPL titles on the trot and two last 16s in the CL. The thing is, there’ll be no CL money this year, or magic nights at Paradise to keep the punters happy.
I’m assuming Pendrey and the rest of the coaching staff will stick around, will be interesting to see where wee Gordon pops up during the season won’t it?
More than that, wonder if I’ll make it past Christmas…
