      Strange choice to go to Leicester, where they sack their managers as soon as they have a bad run. Then again, Brendan likes money (see his property portfolio) and they've probably offered him a fair bit more than he's on at Celtic.

      That's a strange dig.

      Show me someone who says they don't like money, and you'll be showing me a liar.

      Indeed.

      I recall him being criticised for buying a Porsche when he was with us. :D

      If I ever have that type of money I'm having tons of flash cars make no mistake.

      Think Leicester is good move for him a step up from Swansea a step below or two from Liverpool. Leicester are safe from relegation so no pressure on him for the rest of the season. Wonder if this will give Stevie a chance of closing the Gap this season in the league

      Good move for Brodge. Glasgow is a shithole and the SPL is muck so a no brainer really.

      6 mill more is the bank is nice too.

      What you literally have to have it spelled out what somebody "liking money" means? I have to say something like "Brendan likes money significantly more than the average person", so that you can understand that I'm saying I think he's greedy? I never understand people who act thick. What do they get out of it?

      Anyway, yeah like I referenced in my original post, Brendan built up a massive property portfolio when he was with us. To me that suggests he's greedy, but it's only my opinion. I think he did an ok job with us, but am not keen on him as a person. Hope that is all simple enough to understand.

      Don't be so sure mate.

      I'm pretty well off by any measure, and I'm still driving the crappy old Range Rover I bought second hand about 20 years ago.

      But then I'm odd, and not really into cars anyway.

      Out of interest, can you remember if the Porsche came along at the same time he got his teeth done and  dumped his mrs for a dolly bird?

      All that just screamed "mid life crisis" to me.

      All that aside, we know BR has a high regard for himself, but surely that self confidence, bordering on arrogance is a must for someone to get to the top in football?
      Others probably just hide it better.

      Don’t be a f***in moron.

      Glasgow is a fantastic city - very, very similar in attitude and lots of aspects of history to Liverpool.

      The SPL however is sh*t and the bigotry attaching to the Old Firm a poison.

      He was paid a huge salary and built a property portfolio.

      I'm not sure what exactly is wrong with that and why that makes him like money more than the average person? Not like he's the only person in football who is hugely overpaid.

      Robbie Fowler has a huge property portfolio as well so guess he's a greedy f**ker then as well?

      I'm into cars myself mate so would definitely treat myself.

      I'm pretty certain he got the car soon after he joined us so a fair bit before he dumped his missus.

      Apparantly was always leaving in summer anyway. He doesn't get on with the chief exec at Celtic. Thought he would wait till won couple of trophies first, especially the league.

      Fair enough mate.

      To be fair, I get bollocked all the time by the mrs for wearing ratty old jumpers and jeans, so it's probably just me.

      I like BR, always have, the job here was just a bit too big for him at that stage of his career, but he also gave us one fantastic season, playing some brilliant football.

      Sorry mate just my opinion. Was there on a stag went to a Celtic game. Wasn't impressed with the City grubby, homeless everywhere, sh*t night life. Might have just been out in a crap area though.

      Jesus fella that’s a bit myopic presenting that as a fact in that way.........

      I can think of any number of areas of of any major city (including Liverpool) where people would get the wrong idea if parachuted in.

      If you like Liverpool you’d love Glasgow - trust me ;)

      I've been to Liverpool loads of times it's my favourite city ever for nightlife. Glasgow only the once but it was like chalk and cheese to Liverpool can't believe anyone would think otherwise.

      Going to Glasgow once and having condemned it is a bit harsh. Like all big cities it has its areas but it has also some outstanding places to live. Believe it or not there are Areas in Liverpool that need modernising with housing stock over 100 years old.

      I was in Bishop Briggs one time.
      One time was enough.

      This is back in the mid 90's mind.
      Stayed in on the Friday night, had a few jars etc
      Went into Glasgow City Centre on the saturday night, and I swear to f**k, I have never seen so many lads, bandaged up, on crutches, stitched up etc etc.
      My mate said it was from the night before, and the mad fuckers were going out to do the same again on Saturday night.

      City Centre was grand though.
      Nice pubs, nice people for the most part.

      Bishopbriggs is one of the northern suburbs - it’s just a residential area really with a wee bit of a town centre.

      I’m on the southside last 20 odd years but I grew up in a satellite town about 8 miles east and 5 miles or so from Parkhead.

      Glasgow - again like Liverpool - has seen massive commercial investment / redevelopment in some areas in the last 20-30 years (post Thatcher).

      So many different parts to it now - its a wonderful, cosmopolitan and multi cultural city now.

      Anyhow weapons are away I just get a bit defensive about my hometown ;)

      My nearest "hometown" would be Athy.
      Hard to defend that place.

      Anyway, so we'll be seeing BR's shiny teeth on MOTD again.
      If him and Firmino stand next to each other it's likely to burn out the camera lens.

      I think Leicester is a great fit for him with the players he will have there. I can see them reaching Europa league territory next season. Good luck to him, just not vs us!!!
