Apologies accepted.............. Killie won last week away from home.............. and now announced 2 weeks ago, 9.4 million debt paid off,,,,,,,, debt free now............ surely on the up now........ i always look on the bright side....
They had genuine world class players in 1966 doubtful if they have any now . Think I would struggle to name a world class British player , never mind an English one . Strange when you consider how many there were in the past .
With the troubles at Rangers Celtic is presently the only Scottish club with any level of European capability but I must add that as the English Premiership becomes ever more competitive while Celtic have relatively mediocre opposition (Sorry Traveller!) the gap must get greater. Maybe in another two or three years they will have Rangers back in their league but that may be a question.
£6 is more realistic but still unlikely in the short term . As things stand and that could change , three things need to happen .IMHO 1. ...They need to buy back the DAS share and restore dividends . 2 . ..HMG have to reduce their holding . 3 . ..The economy both here and in Europe , our main trading partner , have to show signs of real improvement . Could be a while yet, if you don'y need the money ,stick them in the bottom drawer.
It is impossible and unhelpful to say or even speculate usefully. The sp won't move in a straight line so can't be extrapolated mathematically. You will obviously be aware that the sp has been sub- 400p for practically all of the period from 2008. The effects of changes to economic and company- related variables are exaggerated for this share and so we see large swings in sp that might not occur for other large companies. This exaggeration stems largely from the fact it is 80- odd percent government owned and needs to overcome a range of obstacles before it can be seen to operate and perform like a normal company might. Additionally, there are no dividends and so sp growth is anaemic and realistically the only way to get a return from this company in the short term is to trade on volatility. Until the structural obstacles are overcome, the government support is removed and dividends are restored, there is simply no way of telling when this share might get to 470p let alone 600p. Outside of all of that, the premise of your question is flawed: if anyone could really know the point at which any sp might get to any level, they’d sell their house and everything they owned and pile in. I hope that helps.
All about the money as usual . Far higher revenues pumped into the English league . Totally different standard of football. Can't buy the footballing equivalent of a Roller if you don't have the cash .
Yes hope is the eternal thought....that keeps many going....
Football salaries are a figment of most peoples magination as they will never equal that amount in their lifetime.
Another thing ..Celtic seem to win their league championship nearly every year... But fail consistently in Europe..... Does that mean that Scottish football is at a lower standard than the English League .. your thoughts of the difference between Scottish and England Leagues
I don't think they were expected to win in 1966 but they did. We must always have hope, think MU on Tuesday. The trouble as I see it is that the players are paid so much money they believe they are as good as that suggests when, in reality, they have all the usual human failings and more that prevent them giving their full potential and consistency. Indeed, I could believe that many of them allow the money to remove their respect for managers and other disciplines.
Regarding the football World Cup..... I would say there is far less following of the England side than say 20 years ago... they have proved to be lacking in ability on so many occasions... The team played a disaster of a world a couple of world cups ago... Rooney was included even not fully fit after an injury in another ....speaks volumes as to how desperate and the lack of ability the England team really has against the top flight... far too inconsistent as well.. and have at times been reported as pathetic and often disappointing.....
Nobody that I know really thinks they have any remote chance of winning the World Cup as per the last 44 years. and like me there are probably millions that do not always bother now to watch every match England play at Wembley or on TV ..empty seats reported at some games in the past 10 years....If the next world cup was not hyped up in the way that it is... interest would not be as big.....
Sadly those under 44 years of age have never seem the England team win any silverware or Cups .... which in its self speaks volumes as to the ability of the UK national game... over such a long period of time.... and how many of the pubic have lost interest accordingly..
That said it is only a game and not a War that must been won... but is nice to see the odd moments of great football from other countries.... when they actually play clean football.
I wish the England team well but have no reason to expect a win... in fact it is the best time to go on holiday as crowds are normally less...and you can watch it in a local pub or hotel in most cases.. anyway...
2 for the price of one you can say..... a holiday bogoff... winner..
