Yet again it all comes down to how you define what a big club is.

Nah. Middlesborough level. They rated fatty Hartson for Christ's sake! Larsson's a 'good' player but nothing special. Check out his international scoring record. Tells a different story.

all this is moot anyway I don't think O'neil would want to leave a club (Celtic) where there is no pressure to win, (its a dead cert) to come to a club with expectations as high as LFC.

The other side of the coin is,
Is Curbs a big enough name to get the top players to come top LFC?
At least with Benitezhe would have a erputation to get some of the big names at the club.

For me a big club is a club financially stable, big following, good team, prestigious history and bright future.

If Newcastle had a bright future and a decent history we would be a big club.

yeah and Heskey in his 1st season he was fantastic, he lost confidence and GH wasnt the man to get the best out of him, he still played a major part in the team acting more as a holding player and provider for the other striker. If he's that bad why is he always in the England team and why do the england forwards and player rave about his work rate and service???


What about leeds opions of Fowler?

Is it Leeds? It's Leeds, isn't it? Is it? Must be. That's my guess. Leeds.

Heskey's shit. Don't deny it. He's shit.

I agree about Fowler by the way. He was shit when we bought him, even worse when we offloaded.

and check Larssons European scoring record for Celtic. Did you even watch him in the Uefa cup final? he was exceptional vs Porto.

O'Neil is a manager who can get the best of even shit players *cough* Varga, Lennon *cough*

How.

They have big following, they may have cash.

Scottish titles dont count so that rules out a bright future, or a good past and your team now that you have lost Larsson isnt great.

They've come out of a european barron spell got to the Uefa cup final last season and latter stages this season knocking out some very good teams in the process.

Celtic not got a good past? ROFKGJOHSBRT&*USBDRHIFBSFJKSFS

Liverpool haven't been successful in recent times and Celtic have? Liverpool won the UEFA Cup, Celtic made it to the final. I don't care about how many Scottish titles they've won, that's hardly an achievement.

Someone mentioned that O'neil wouldn't want to leave a team where there's no pressure to win and expectations are easy to meet - perhaps that's exactly the reason he'd want to leave. A good manager should want to better themselves, it's all about trying your hand at the highest level and lets face it; the Scottish league is a joke. The Liverpool managerial job is easily one of the top 10 jobs in club football, the prestige and history of the club is up there with the best. Add to this the fact that this summer should see the new manager with plenty of money to spend and a very professional chairman and board that are known to support a manager as long as possible. You've got to ask who wouldn't want the job.

I reckon in the Premiership Celtic would be at about the level of Birmingham. A couple of bright players, a well-organised team and a very good work ethic...but you're talking UEFA Cup place at best.

It's hardly Celtic's fault that everyone else is shit, is it?

No, but that doesn't make Celtic good. It makes them not shit.
