    Is it just me or does anyone else cringe everytime they see this guy on Sky whenever he is asked about Scottish football or players. He constantly talks or game down. I am just after hearing him on SkySports saying Petrov will find every week a challenge in the EP as opposed to being able to go up to say Aberdeen and cuff them 0-5 or Motherwell 4-0 and that his only challenge each year was the champions league. Ok so maybe this IS the case but still ....could someone please phone Champagne Charlie and tell him his job as a pundit on Sky is secure, he doesnt need to cow-tow to his paymasters in England whenever he;s asked about A Scottish team or player.

    Yea I seen that too. The SPL is more competitive than the EPL. In England is just Chelsea in Scotland its always going to be between Celtic and Rangers.

    I f@cking hate Nicholas, I thought he was a w@nker even when he played for Celtic. He's a pervy old codger and he talks a load of sh1te.
    Totally understand how you feel, just his voice makes me cringe these days.
    Dare I say it but I honestly prefer Ally McCoist to Nicholas

    Nicholas is a prat who dances to the tune of his english paymasters. The solution to him is to turn him off!!!

    I have never seen anyone so eager to please thier paymaster as Charlie Nick.....The word around the SkySports news desk office is that when Charlie first arrived there he was that eager to please, he had to have his jaws wired shut to stop him from giving blow jobs by way of a hello! :86:

    I know him personally and he is great in real life but he tries to justify his presence by over exagarating when on the Sky.

    I have Setanta and I strongly recommend it. Almost every Celtic away game is shown plus you get Celtic TV with it. This season you get French, German, Italian and Dutch football too.

    i'm not scottish so i might be missing something when it comes to hansen, so here goes.

    i think hansen is fine, when BBC first showed the old firm he was fantastic, my mate and i were shocked how much praise he gave the two clubs.

    when the likes of nicholas comes out with crap like that it really annoys me. why can't he just say that the premiership is a better standard than putting the game north down, he knows fine rightly celtic don't go to wawy grounds and get it easy.

    I recommend Setanta also, it has came on leaps and bounds since it first arrived. I got it from day one and the quality has improved greatly since then as has it's program output. :50:

    Charlie Nicholas is an * if you ask me. He was my hero when I was a kid, broke my heart when he left.
