The best way to settle this debate is for me to witness it for myself and be proven wrong :) I'm really looking forward to being a fan again and enjoying the match day experience. Thank you for the advice and I look forward to living in your beautiful country.

The Cypriot league has come a long way... you just haven't been following it. Check out their association ranking...

Where's your Scotland or Wales? :lol:


I think you've taken me up wrong. I'm certainly not having a go at the Cypriot league, I was just surprised with the comparison with Newcastle, a club with 50,000 average attendance, 200m+ in revenue every year and had a wage bill of 70m+. I was surprised to hear a club with a wage bill of around 2m-3m would be comparable to them over the course of a season.

I played in Scotland for 3 seasons and I have no doubt the Cyprus league is as good if not better. Again, in no way was I trying to belittle the league. It's not like I was a champions league regular!!

Have you ever played for Everton FC? :mrgreen:


Sadly not, played them in the cup once and got a beating Haha

Greatest football club in the world... :wink:

No need to get apologetic my friend... we enjoy the odd shit stirring and wind ups in here! :D

The forum’s football threads have gone quiet now because we basically got eliminated from the EL/CL but of course your clubs continue in the next round…

Last match was Apollon vs. Everton U21 0-3. :mrgreen: :lol:

Anyway, fare thee well and I hope everything goes smoothly when you move over to CY.


I'm a Blackburn fan so all hope is lost on me haha. I'm looking forward to it thank you
