Yep. From what I've heard from people in Ireland they're probably only behind United in terms of popularity over there.

They all seem to root for Celtic. But many/most of them focus more on EPL and their favorite EPL team since umm...it's not as shitty.

Pretty much spot on.

Premiership is in no way shitty though.

The league was decided about as early as most of the big European leagues this year.

Couldn't really tell you much else - I left Scotland in September and Aberdeen have been abysmal, so I haven't been following it that closely. I'm sure it was less interesting for Celtic, and every team lost out on 1/2 money-spinning home games against Rangers. Other than that, just another season.

The big problem is that the big non-Glasgow teams, with the most fans and the biggest budgets, are underperforming. Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs have all finished in the bottom half. Teams like Ross County, Inverness and Mothrwell are punching well above their weight by appointing good managers and find good players, while St Johnstone and Kilmarnock are solid teams despite shit budgets. Even St Mirren add something with interesting tactics and a couple of exciting players.

Given all those things, this season should have been a good advert for a Rangers-free SPL. Sadly, the big east coast clubs have fucked it up.

I know you're all dying to know, so with a few days left before the SPL kicks off, here's what's going to happen:


1 Celtic
2 Motherwell
3 Aberdeen
4 Dundee Utd
5 ICT
6 St Johnstone
7 Hibernian
8 Ross County
9 Kilmarnock
10 St Mirren
11 Partick Thistle
12 Hearts



Celtic will win the league earlier than last year, because they won't be good enough to have the CL as a distraction again. Aberdeen will be significantly better and may well sneak into 2nd, particularly if Motherwell lose Stuart McCall.

Dundee Utd will be terrible but score millions of goals, having signed Goodwillie and kept Mackay-Steven and others. ICT, St Johnstone, Hibs (who just got horsed 7-0 by Malmo) and Ross County will be interchangeable, and I won't give a fuck about any of them at any stage of the season.

Kilmarnock and St Mirren will be bad. Partick will be worse. Hearts will have a 15 point deduction and about 3 senior players remaining, so the aforementioned shitebags will have a comfortable season.

Or it could go completely differently, because I - like the rest of the world - have never heard of 90% of the incoming English cast-offs.

Rangers don't exist anymore. I'm interested in this new team from Govan though. They won their first trophy a couple of months back, which was cute.

New season kicks off in 1 hour. I feel properly homesick for the first time since I left Aberdeen - I haven't missed a season opener in a lot of years.

Right now I should be with my brother, and we should be drinking disinfectant-flavoured pints and talking loudly about tactics while middle-aged men shout "FOUR FOUR FUCKIN' TWOOO!" at us. We should be talking about 18 years without a trophy, my entire lifetime without a Scottish Cup, 28 years without a league title, and whether this might be the season when my dad's football-induced rage finally leads to (legal or cardiac) arrest. We should be meeting my uncles at half-time and, like the repressed northerners we are, stubbornly refusing to discuss the fact that this is our first season without my grandfather.

But I'm in London. Maybe I can have a latte and a brioche to mark the occasion or something. F my L.

'Mon i fuckin' Dons.
