Great to see them in the Premier League
Defo try to get to the Swansea game next year

Bittersweet for many fans following the rebranding of the club. This has caused a pretty big divide amongst their support

What do people think about the history of the club being ripped up to capture a new market in the Middle East? Does Premier League football balance this out?

from a leeds point of view i wouldnt really like to see a change from an all white strip although their original colours were blue and gold and changed to all white in 1960 to mimic real madrid!! but at the same time i wouldnt lose any sleep over it either as log as it wasnt all red
 
but the likes of naming the stadium and training ground i wouldnt give a fiddlers fcuk about if it brought in money. increased parachute payments etc menas its now worth over £100m to get promotion. if it means going up call it whatever you like

Cardiff fans should not of gone along with changing their colours and crest just for promotion.

They held protests sure? What were they supposed to do, abandon the team they have supported all their lives over a colour change in the midst of winning promotion to the EPL? 

It's like the owners dropped the colours/crest and suddenly Cardiff started winning, any true fan would continue to support their club unless it becomes too much, major investment was brought in by these owners so they can't have it every way and certainly a kit change shouldn't be made a huge fuss over with that in mind.

Sure Celtic would get relegated to League 2 within 3 or 4 seasons! 

Isn't there huge clubs like WBA, Stoke, Wigan, Norwich etc in the EPL! How would Celtic survive!!!!!

Too much money involved for them to go straight to the EPL.
I could see them starting in the Conference or League 2 and working their way up.

It will happen eventually. Money talks and Celtic will generate a lot of it.

I would happily see the Hoops go into League 2 tbh. 

The SPL was boring enough with Rangers in it, it's depressing now! I look forward to the Cup games alot and the odd SPL game, but the league is now a graveyard aside from Celtic.

I think it was malaysia/indonesia and the far east, not the middle east they were targeting, hard to say though, he pumped the money in so it so bad to grant him one whim? very very difficult call to make but id assume most would take top flight and red home/blue away jersey as opposed to second divisiom
