    Most fans consider St. Pauli and Barcelona close friends of Celtic but what teams do you consider to be friends / affiliates of Celtic and why?

    Also feel free to add teams which we would consider rivals such as Chelsea and why?

    Is there any teams most Celtic fans allign with our club that you hate or clubs we consider rivals which you like?

    I know a Celtic fan that also supports Chelsea and it baffles me.

    There has been a lot more in the last 13 years with other Ultras groups affiliating themselves with the GB.

    I've always said Feyenoord is my Dutch team but what is the reason behind it? Personally it was because of Wim and the king but is there more to it than that? Their rivalry with Ajax?

    Not sure what the direct link is to be honest, Fans on both sides have made it pretty clear there is friendship.
    I would actually imagine it goes back to the 1970 European Cup final.

    Just checked their wiki and it says they alligned with Celtic, AEK Athens, Marseilles, Adana Demirspor and Ononoia and fierce rivals with Lazio, Inter Milan and Verona. Cheers for that.

    We had some sort of tenuous official link with Santos Laguna which appears to have disappeared.

    Im sure there was a direct link to Santos Laguna's website from our official site, and vise versa. No idea what happened with it though.
    Might be wrong but did we not get Juarez through this link?

    Not really a link but Croatian fans seem to universally like us, down to the catholic thing I've been told!
    Also some lad near Vukovar has the Dinamo and our Crest on his gaff :biggrin:

    Theres certainly a few groups that fire over to Hamburg for a few ST Pauli games. Sure there a convention of some kind out that way during pre season as well
