    Some people just seem confused as to why the celts (apart from the Iberian Irish) target games against the English... just thought I’d clarify for the uninitiated.

    Every Englishman who questions why the celts put so much stock in beating the English.

    Over the course of my time on this forum I have seen quite a few yes.

    It isn’t that the celts are anti-English (although I can’t talk for everyone), it’s simply a long standing hangover from history together with England being a great measurement for success.
