the question is hard to answer and is entirely subjective. it also depends on what one means by "best". certainly the atmosphere at celtic park in big matches seems to be generally accepted as being one of the best anywhere. but other places can say that too. and are the "best" fans ones who make political statements (such as st pauli) or are they ones who never seem to be in trouble with the authorities? and i guess it shows a certain amount of "great support" to follow a team which rarely wins anything and will forever be a local team. in short, the question is too subjective to answer
I wondered when you would get involved. Another bitter, I suspect?
by SFA from oldco to newco - end of discussion. If that's not enough, may I point you in the direction of the comments/findings from ASA, UEFA(checkout our history page on their website, also),law lords and the SFA. See what the people that matter have to say about Scotland's most successful club.
You know that hating Rangers is now a legitimate career move? At least 3 mentally ill terrorist loving individuals are making a good living about a club they despise. Unbelievable.
The atmosphere is exceptional on European nights at Parkhead, you definitely have the loudest speakers in football. Why don't you talk about the great atmosphere at Parkhead when you play St Mirren and co? You know, when the stadium is half empty.
Celtic did take 60,000 to Seville (*cough) and there were no arrests. Although, with the amount of litter lying around added to the vast numbers pissing in the street, zero arrests is a rather fortunate number. If indeed, that magic number is indeed correct.
Celtic and various fan groups contacted UEFA in hope of getting a fair play award. Not the other way around. I think it's important to let the world know this.
Although, did you get a fair play award for this during the Seville campaign?
A fair play award for this?
Did you get a fair play award when you were chanting songs about the death of solider Lee Rigby at Brentford last summer? You also invaded the pitch in balaclavas and chanted about the IRA that day. How lovely!
Did you get a fair play award when your club covered up child abuse? A scandal that went on for years?
.I will not provide a link because I think it's inappropriate. However, if people would like to know about the biggest scandal in European football history
, I will provide the information via PM.
Would you like me to continue? I have plenty more stories to tell about your 'great club.'
For some reason Celtic fans like to believe they are completely different from half the folk they share the city with. In the warped mind of a Celtic man: Celtic fans great - Rangers fans bad. If it was not so tragic it would be laughable. I blame the schools.
No surprise to see a Celtic fan bringing 'political statements' into a 'best fans' discussion. Our friends from across the city like to promote themselves as a club 'open to all faith and cultures', as long as you are not from Israeli, that is. Just ask Eyal Berkovic who was subjected to endless racist abuse from the Celtic fans. Things got so bad, he celebrated a goal by sticking the finger up at his own fans!
