Ibrox physical comedy, Thistle’s Football History role

135

OK, I’ll admit it, when I heard Ryan Christie put Aberdeen two up last night, I had a sense of wellbeing. When I saw video of their first goal, I laughed more than I thought possible at physical comedy.

But it was the guy who, with his team losing, thought, “I’ve had enough of this crap, I’ll going to steal the ball and run away” who really set me off the edge. God knows Celtic fans have done stupid things over the years, but can you imagine being so disengaged with your team that you’d prefer to steal a ball than get it back onto the field to effect a comeback?

If fans start pinching things that aren’t nailed down at Ibrox they’d better step up the property maintenance work sharpish.

What last night’s result means is that Partick Thistle have a role to play in Football History over the next few days. If Celtic overcome them tonight, but Aberdeen fail to do so on Sunday, Celtic could break the widest winning margin world record.

What is of more immediate concern is maintaining our undefeated run on our third last game of the season. Thistle have an excellent record at Celtic Park this season, drawing 1-1 and losing 1-0. Celtic won more convincingly on our previous visit to Firhill, but we’ll need to hit that standard again to get the desired result.

I’ve been blown away with the support for my marathon run on Sunday in aid of the Celtic Foundation. Thank you to each person who has got in touch or donated to the MyDonate site (here).

Clearly donations help the Foundation, but having done the half marathon last year, I know they put fuel in the legs when I’ve had enough. I’m going to read through the donations list before I go to bed on Saturday, it will get my head straight and be more useful than energy gels. Thank you.

  1. Interested reading differing takes on the war in Our Wee Ulster from Canamalar and WITS on the last threads. . The songs debate will follow as a matter of course.

    Run with pockets in your shorts and in the pockets have some sugar-rich sweets. Don’t take one before 15 miles.

    Interesting is one way of putting it

     

     

    It got a bit silly as it sometimes does with the grumpy one and me

     

     

    Whats you own view on the way it panned out

  4. 50 shades of green on

    Think wee have all played football with a guy who has taken the hump and done a “its ma baw ” moment, but that idiot last night was a scream.

     

     

    Blew awe his wages on a home win and never bought his son a birthday present me thinks .Guess what he is getting.

    The 2 huns running into each other at 1st goal last night is pure Chuckle Brothers

  6. We are often accused of paranoia about differing refereeing standards applied in our games.

     

    Last night Stockley was sent off for two bookable offenses both for use of elbows.

     

    On Friday when we played Aberdeen the same player elbowed and injured KT with use of elbow and did not receive even a warning.He was guilty the entire game of jumping into our defenders with elbows raised but never once was spoken to.

     

    Is there a different set of rules interpretation for some teams?

     

    Or were we just unlucky not to have a ref like Beaton who applied the rules as written?

    I agree with Canamalar what ended ‘the war’ was the Canary Wharf bombing of 9 February 1996.

     

     

    Westminster knew it could absorb the loss of blood but it could not absorb the loss of coin. The provo’s ‘won’ by default of money means more to the riched than blood.

     

     

    It took a long time for those who only wanted equality to determine a blood free route.

     

     

    Unfortunately, most unfortunately, a couple of lives were lost, but when you weight that against the number of lives that were lost in Erin because of Westminster’s greed… then I grieve but yet again I’ll say… what a wicked web we weave….

  8. A Stor Mha Chroi on

    And don’t forget Canamalar – Baltic Exchange and Downing Street,

     

     

    And when Irish men from Cork sat and drank their pints and reveled in their non-free stater hubris, men from Belfast and Derry weren’t joining that particular nostalic redundant company.

    Agreed about Stockely and his use of his elbows, this seems to be McInness plan of attack for the Cup Final, so it will be interesting to see how Brother Madden interprets the rulebook when it comes to the use of elbows

  11. thomthethim for Oscar OK on

    As it is a cup final, the ref will do all in his power to protect the spectacle of 11v11, even if it involves “managing” the rules.

     

     

    All for the good of the game, obviously.

     

    It is how football is presented these days….for the benefit of the sponsors and TV viewer.

    Utter bedlam over on Munter Media.Pedro getting it laldy.In everything though,there is always a ray of sunshine to brighten up your day.Mines anyway.I dont think using Ibrox for a Bollywood Movie really took off,for a way to raise money over there,but one budding entrepreneur has come up with this beauty,

    Just thinking what the club could do again to make more money and increase fans experience in the stadium.

     

     

    I think this one could kick off really well and I don’t believe any other club has approved a plan…

     

     

    Have different vehicles around the pitch between the grass and where the stands are. Fans can pay extra to sit in cars and watch the game for the live experience. Audio of RTV coming from the stereos. Have blue corsas, dukes of hazzard cars even del boy 3 wheel van for some fun and even a tank to represent our soldiers. Imagine watching the game in a tank. Like that wacky races character serg. Can fire some balloons at half time into the crowd. Charge 50-150 a ticket depending on the car you choose. 3 guys in the back of the dukes of hazzard car doing the bouncy as it flips up.

     

     

    Roars of engines as we score getting the atmosphere going.

     

     

    First of a kind. What else can we do?

     

     

     

    ===========================================

     

     

    Tears in my eyes.

     

     

    I don’t know quite what to say. They are utterly mental. :))

  13. FOR A PEOPLE AND A CAUSE on

    This idea of watching the matches in a tank at ibrox could be a stroke of genius

     

    I mean what better place to be than inside a tank watching a game when parts of the stand start falling down

    Next email from Bryan to Craig Whyte and Phill Betts over tax cases shown to court “nervous about quality of information club is supplying​”

    Bryan “Correct”

     

     

    Email continues “The press coverage of the “suprise” £2.8m tax case…did nothing to instill confidence in the club’s truthfulness”

     

     

    Bryan “There were a couple of times we found out things through the media. I don’t know how they got it.”

     

     

    Email suggests the maximum potential liability in “big tax case” was £100m

     

    (me: 100 million

     

     

    Findlay on the £1.7m “health and safety” bill for Ibrox. “This was pretty substantial, not just tightening a few screws.”

  18. A Stor Mha Chroi on

    Email: Discusses “Craig’s private discussions with HMRC…£5m a year over a few years would satisfy them.”

     

     

    Bryan email on the “Armageddon” of HMRC winning the big tax case. Suggests: “Instructing an administrator to protect it’s interests.”

     

     

    The club is pre-packed to rid it of the HMRC debt and Craig/Wavetower take control and honour the Ticketus agreement”

     

     

    Findlay “Who thought this up?”

     

    Bryan “Came from Mr Whyte’s side.”

     

     

    “How does Scottish administration differ from English?…looks after the charge-holder first and foremost. Craig will call the shots.”

     

     

    Continues “My ‘middle eastern nutter’ scenario could play out ( he buys the club and Craig/Ticketus are left out)

     

     

    “We need to be crystal clear that Craig would be in control.”

     

     

    Email continues “How would the SPL treat a pre-pack? Asks for clarity on the “Armageddon scenario” of losing licence to play

     

     

    Findlay “It is clear the tax issues might have scared the Investment committee completely?”

     

     

    Findlay “It is clear the tax issues might have scared the Investment committee completely?”

     

     

    Findlay “The jury may conclude Murray hadn’t been entirely candid about information in the data room?”

     

    Bryan “Correct”

     

     

    Findlay on the deal signing “As soon as the cap was back on the Mont Blanc the money was available”

     

    Bryan “It’s a normal procedure”

     

     

    Findlay ends cross-examination, Advocate Depute rises to re-examine.

     

     

    AD “Ticketus had no access to content of data room?”

     

    Bryan “Correct”

     

    AD “No contact with Murray”

     

    Bryan “Correct”

     

     

    AD “You had to rely on what people told you?”

     

    Bryan “Yes, we couldn’t go directly and ask questions.”

     

     

    Bryan agrees Ticketus did not want word of the proposed deal “leaking out to the wider community.” Never called Murray

     

     

    Adjourns until 2pm

     

     

    Pray to Saint Jude the Patron Saint of the Impossible

  19. Afternoon bhoys hope you don’t mind a quick techie query, I keep getting diverted to some admin site from CQN but only on my IPAD. Is anybody else having this trouble? or is it my IPAD? Oh and how do I get rid of it please?

     

     

    Looking forward to watching the bhoys tonight and travelling up on Sunday for the last league match of the season, first time up in a while. Lets hope I don’t spoil the unbeaten run.

    And all the Tims should be praying to St. Jude too, in advance of their apathy, lethargy, new age hubris.
