Sky line up Celtic’s title party

374

Sky announced three consecutive Celtic games will be broadcast live across March and April, one of which is almost certain to be a league-winning occasion. Although Aberdeen could go second by a point if they win their game in hand over Newco, I’m not convinced they have the staying power. McInnes has struggled to replicate the form of last season, perhaps as a consequence of so many of his first team squad out of contract in the summer and looking around for deals.

The first Sky game on the schedule released this morning is the visit of Newco to Celtic Park on Sunday 12 March. Newco have 10 games after this, so should Aberdeen’s challenge drop off, Celtic’s lead would need to be 28 points heading into that game to setup a title decider (loose sense of the word).

We currently have a 19 point lead with a game in hand (against St Johnstone later this month). Win all seven of our league games before 12 March, and we would need Newco to drop six points to allow two Glasgow teams to come together to celebrate the champions on what would be a memorable day for everyone in the city.

Newco have visits to Motherwell, Hearts, Dundee and Inverness before then, as well as home games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. Earlier this season they won at Dundee and Inverness, lost at Hearts and drew each of their homes games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. They have yet to visit Fir Park on league duty this season.

Although they capitulated last time out against Celtic, Newco played better in December than earlier in the season, so there’s a chance they’ll pick up more at home to Accies, Inverness and County. Their cup and league double-header against Motherwell this month will either take some pressure off, or set them up for a Celtic Park party.

If we don’t win the title that day the roadshow rolls onto Dens Park and then Tynecastle. Newco play a day before us on both occasions, so there’s a chance the title will be won/lost at Ibrox before Celtic play.

    Italiabhoy,

     

     

    I know, and from previous intercourse I expect no more from you.

     

     

    ???? Cough, splutter !!!!

    Ernie Lynch,

     

    There are plenty of thickos in here,

     

    Please enlighten us oh great one

     

     

    What was the choice and more importantly, what was the correct choice ?

     

    According to you, there seems to have been an alternative to the trump, bush and clinton choice, problem being gobshite, as far as I’m concerned Obama, bush and Clinton made sure their tenure was profitable for everyone, trump had already made that harder, for that alone, tip my hat.

    I would have the steam off Jeremy’s shite running the country before Theresa May any day, but that’s just me :-)

  4. *** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ***

     

    ** Goals For Shay **

     

    * Relaxation in payment options *

     

     

    Good evening all.

     

    You may (or may not) know about our new competition, Goals For Shay, which launches this weekend. There’s still a few days left for you to enter – simply contact us at cqnpredictor@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you with full details.

     

    The real purpose behind the competition is to raise funds for Wee Shay. But we’ve recognised a small issue that might be inhibiting some people from joining and that we have tried to address.

     

    Part of the competition relates to each entrant’s ability to play a ‘joker’ in 1 of the weeks, doubling their score. But we previously said that to earn your first joker you had to pay your £10 entry fee by this Friday. We weren’t trying to be cruel as the idea was simply borne out of a frustration of having to chase up a handful of stragglers each time we run these types of competitions. So it was an incentive designed to save us some work – pay without a reminder and get a joker. However, we now think that this new rule might have put some people off entering, particularly when money can be very tight just after the Festive Period. So we have now come up with a modification of the free joker rule.

     

     

    New rule

     

    EVERY entrant will start with 1 joker. However, you can only use your joker AFTER you have paid your £10 entry fee. So, if you enter and pay before Saturday 14th you can use it in any of the weeks 1 – 10. Otherwise your joker only becomes available to use once you have paid.

     

    We’ve not made any change relating to the 2nd joker option. Remember, a 2nd joker costs an additional £5 but all of those funds go directly to help Shay. The 2nd joker is entirely optional and you may buy this at any time up the end end of February.

     

    We’re only a handful of entries short of the magic 100 so keep those entries coming.

    Just reading back/catching up ,I would say there’s obviously tons of pash to talk about.

    Through a green glass…,

     

    Blah blah blah

     

    If the yanks want a tax cheat in charge then that’s what they will get, there’s a wee trick here, the yank president is no allowed to be a tax cheat, and if the the same intelligence agency that tried to discredit him on tax evasion had any evidence, he would not be president, simple as that. Else they are covering up stupid yank electorate but I doubt Obama and Hillary would have let him become a reasonable opposition, simples really. Beginning to think, trump is further left than Saunders and that’s a good thing, look after yer own first, could be worse.

    Can`t argue with that.

  11. It’s like Clinton was an angel, never done anything wrong, illegal, bad, never stolen, never murdered, never perjered, never lied, it’s all that bad hair doo’s blokes fault, the revisionism is hun like so it is

  12. As far as I have read, Mr Trump is looking to severely limit the powers of the Food and Drug Administration, especially to alllow drugs to the market with less testing. This is not attacking the pharmaceutical industry, exactly the opposite. A bit like he says he’s going to drain the swamp and then appoints a cabinet of billionaires. He’s also just appointed an anti-vaccine campaigner to review vaccines (so note; not a scientist!). This is populism, I’m afraid, you say everything else is a conspiracy then you can do what you want.

     

     

    I do find it hard to believe that people can be taken in by Mr Trump. Yes, Ms Clinton has her faults, but she’s much less corrupt and much more competent than Mr Trump. Still, that’s post-truth politics for you.

    I would have preferred bernie myself, however, you must realize that Trump is a fraud and not going to do anything except empty the treasury in a different direction i.e. his.

     

    Trump will

     

    not take the US out of NATO

     

    not sell nuclear weapons to S.Korea or japan

     

    Ban muslims from entering the country

     

    repeal obamacare in its entirety

     

    reduce taxes

     

    tariff Chinese goods 35%

     

    deport 11 million Latinos

     

    Build a wall

     

    etc blah blah blah

     

    As far as he is concerned he has already won the greatest reality TV show ever!

     

     

    whatever he does he will follow in all his predecessors footsteps since Truman and be regarded as a war criminal only he wont get hanged either.

    TET,

     

    It’s fantastic beasts and where to hide them :)

     

    Trump right wing that saved the world is a bad thing because he thought he could get a good deal :)

  15. What’s taking so long for the Eboue permit decision?

     

    Have the funky knuckle.goat bothering brigade put a spanner in the works?

     

    Are they hoping to delay the process so he can’t be integrated into set up in Dubai?

     

    In the hopes that he is spotted training with the team so that some hun in the mssm grasses us up.

  16. What is the Stars on

    So have I got this right.

     

    Trump ( the billionaire’s billionaire) only appears like a right wing homophobic mysogynist xenophobic reactionary buffoon because the”Establishment” media has conspired to brain wash us mere mortals into thinking that he is one.

     

    In reality he is a cross between Che Guevara, ghandi Roosevelt and the Pope who if given the chance will lead us to peace prosperity.

     

    And of course the same media suppressed the story about hilary and her Hollywood elite degenerate pals and their satanic paedophile ring

    It doesn`t come more impoverished than that.

     

    Major questions being asked about what improvement came about from the highly expensive involvement of the Clinton Foundation and its corporate buddies.

  18. Obama has taken the world to a perilous position. He has create a needless cold war with Russia thats on the verge of a hot war. Nuclear!!

     

    Over the last week theres been a steady stream of tanks and heavy artillery crossing Europe and massing on Russias borders. The crazy US -NATO-EU-UK warmongers really want some action with Russia .

     

    It appears that many are ignorant about this ,probably because they take there news from the BBC and the like which have become pure propaganda outlets.

     

    Trump wants friendly relations with Russia . But we will have to see how it plays out.

    Bernie was saying just yesterday that he looked forward to working with Trump on repatriating jobs to the U.S.

     

    ie he would be supporting those initiatives.

    Of course its a good idea. Wont happen though. Capitalism. You forgotten how your favourite economic principle works?

  21. Oh Dearie me, I was always under the impression that Celtic men weren’t swayed by the msm, maybes when it comes to football that may be the case, but when it comes to politics it seems not, they still have the megaphone and they are shouting out loud and good Tims are getting taken in.

     

    This is not about Trump, this is about globalisation, the new world order that the Donald has halted in it’s tracks for a time, the msm are in a tizzy cos their world has been turned upside down and they are not in control.

     

    I have no doubts that Trump will not fulfill the majority of his election promises, but if he can help stop the world blowing itself to feck, and I honestly believe he will, that will do for me, the rest is bullshit.

    Perhaps bernie was being sarcastic. Because I am sure he knows that those jobs aren’t coming back. ..not under this administration

  23. Some pretty shocking stuff on the blog tonight.

     

     

    The politics stuff always used to to be erudite and conducted in (mostly) good humour.

    Yeah i remember clinton. Whitewater. $60k dollar land deal that someone didnt pay $10k tax on.

     

    A billion dollar partisan Kennet starr 3 year witch hunt ensued where finally not being able to prove anything Old Bill got impeached for having the temerity to have his cock sucked. Which as you know is against the law in America.

  25. What is the Stars on

    So if you aren’t on the trump bandwagon you have been taken in by the msm. .If you don’t believe putin is a peace loving democrat you have been taken in by the msm. .next it will be if you believe a man landed on the moon you have been taken in by the msm

  26. I have lived in the USA for almost 25 years.

     

    I did not want Trump or Clinton to win but a two party system ensured one or the other.

     

    Real change would not be allowed.

     

    The Democrats conspired against one of their own in Sanders who was advocating change including the break up of the big banks which have a stranglehold on the American people.

     

    Trump has never done anything for the working classes and i don’t expect that to change.

     

    The system was created by the few for the few.

     

    It is not by definition a democracy.

    Unless of course you feel that lust is mysogynist ?

    He is the worst of capitalism.

     

     

    He is a racist and will take the wold to war.

  32. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on

    Mags..,

     

    Thanks for your response, I’m willing to bet you a pound?

     

     

    No doubt as his term goes on, he will appreciate the opportunities and that’s fair and no doubt he has tried to circumvent his handover of his interests, you’d need to be a clown not to see the opportunities but he’s already (tonight) distanced himself from CNN and the BBC the natural allies that have censored previous illegalities. No doubt they will fall into line soon enough. I’m thinking trumps Russia, China or everybody and other people, where other people and everybody is the British and Europe that he is making sure they are a slip of the presidential tongue away from being enemies.

     

    There are too many people who now need to actually go back and pay attention to what he said during his campaign to know what he is going to do, as far as I was concerned, when he said the poor Americans need support and foreign policy needed to be fixed, I had/have hope. I don’t care what he said he would do about building a wall, honestly, only thickasshitclowns hang on to racism when the folly is building a wall. Go to Oban and see what a folly is, acoustics are pretty good too.

     

    Jobs a job and the unemployed are glad for the chance to be self-sustaining.

     

    Mexican unemployment is Mexico’s problem, how is trumps problem ? Why is it racist ?
