Gera to leave West Brom for Celtic???

Gera to leave West Brom for Celtic???

Wolverhampton based newspaper the Express & Star is reporting that Celtic have entered the race to sign the Baggies' Hungarian playmaker Zoltan Gera.

Whilst acknowledging the fact that Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in Britain is this really a good career move?

OK, Celtic can offer Champions League football, at least for the early stages but the Scottish Premier league is so poor that it does not compare favourably to the Championship. Remember, Zolly desperately wanted to leave the Championship behind, so why would he want to now go to an inferior league?

It seems to be the ambition of most Scottish based players to play in England. For Gera to head north of the border now, he is settled with his wife and new child in the Midlands, would be astonishing.

Stranger things have happened though.

Championship better than SPL ?! Don't make me laugh:) Reaching last 16 of CL last 2 years (not to mention UEFA cup finals) still means 8 top european games against world's best players. Doing that in front of 60,000 fans might be better than playing Colchester & Scunthorpe. Good luck getting spanked every week in EPL & keep this Gera cause he ain't good enough fo the Hoops.

He'd be flippin mental. If Championship sides played SPL sides, granted a couple of defeats, the Championsip would take it to shreads. The very fact that Chris Porter, formerly of Oldham, decent enough pro, nothing special, takes the SPL by storm.

Rangers and Celtic aside all of the other SPL teams would struggle in the Championship. The Championship is better supported than the SPL and more competitive which is why there has been a steady stream of players and managers opting to ply their trade down here. Gera not good enough for the Hoops but Lee Naylor is?

Barnsley beat strong Liverpool and Chelsea teams in the F A Cup so why not beat Celtic?

Lee Naylor has been pants for Celtic this season. Plus plenty of supposed good EPL players have come to Scotland and done poorly. Players such as Graveson and Jarosik, who would grace any Championship team were very very poor in Scotland. The same applies to Massimo Donati. Aberdeen got out of thier group in the Uefa cup this season, beating Copenhagen 5-1 in the process, which is something i doubt even WBA could do. Please do not judge the SPL with the typical English arrogance.

Scottish Football is poor having been dominated by the big two for too long. The Championship is highly competitive, there are no easy games and I would imagine that West Brom would easily be the match of Aberdeen. As for Barnsley beating Liverpool and Chelsea U21s you should check the teams.
