5 games in December, 5 poor results to avenge


Celtic have five games still to play this month against teams they have recorded two draws, three defeats and no wins against this season.  Hearts and Rangers conformably recorded home wins against Celtic while St Johnstone won at Celtic Park.  Udinese were fortunate to escape Glasgow with a point thanks to a late penalty, while Kilmarnock demonstrated their unpredictability by taking, then losing, a three goal lead.

There was a bit of optimistic chat over the weekend that three of our next four league games are at home but these are the teams we need to beat to win the league.  If Celtic come through this month unscathed in domestic football they will win the league, but despite current good form, this will be a huge challenge, starting against Hearts at 15:00 on Saturday.

  1. Speaking of unfortunate names. A lady Wendy Milner is my office got married a couple of years ago. Her husband was called Peter House so no prizes for guessing her new married name.




  2. jinkyredstar cuts it back for Neil Lennon on

    If your name was ‘Bartholomew Dick’ what would you change it to?



    Hail hail

  3. There is a phenomenon called nominative determinism where people supposedly end up in jobs because of their name.



    Like the chief judge in England, Lord Judge. Or the banker who made a fortune in bonuses, Rich Ricci.



    Of course it could just be total coincidence.

    “I cannot form an accurate opinion on how Rangers played, as the referee was clearly biased in their favour.? – Louis van Gaal, who was manager of Ajax at the time, after watching a match at Ibrox, Rangers v Hibs.”

    Is there a link ? – I can’t find it in wsc.co.uk

    I had an African customer who told me he was called Pullen Mapisa.


    He assured me he was not erm…. joking.

    Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls once dated a girl called Ophelia. There was no way that was going to last. Well actually it usually lasts until you get married, then it ends?

    Must be a coincidence. Not met her myself. Just heard the legend of a Wendy House at work.


    We had a Callum McCallum at school and the Neville brothers dad is called Neville Neville. I also know a David Davidson. Why do people do that?

    The best name in British football at the moment belongs to Dagenhamandredbridge legend Exodus Geohaghan.






    Even better when you consider that in ole Lurgan (pronounced Lower – Gin [hard G] in Portadown) “Geoghan” is pronounced Gay – Gin [hard G].



    Not a lot of people know that.




  11. The Lizard King on

    Being a fan of spoonerisms, I always have an immature wee chuckle when I think of the ex Crewe midfielder Kenny Lunt.

  12. Names, is it? BBC Norn Iron years ago had Gloria Hinniford presenting a songs programme. She (and I kid you not) would invariably play the DUP’s William McCrea, or “Willie McCrea” as she affectionitly called him. The people who requested the bozo stuck in my mind. Apart from the usual Johnstone Johnstones and Crawford Crawfords there were 2 beezers. One was Craigavon McCorkindale. The other was McNabb Tosh. When Gloria sweetly said to the boul’ McNabb–“That’s an unusual name” the reply came–“Not really. Me Da was called McNabb Tosh”.

  13. The Pantaloon Duck on

    A friend of mine knows a guy called McKay McKay.



    Another friend has a brother whose full name is Anthony Tony Conlin.



    Another friend used to have a work colleague called Randy Bender. (He was American.)



    I once registered with a GP called Dr Careless. He died before I got ill enough to visit him, which was a shame.

    Afternoon all.


    I used to winch a burd called F8nny Aitken. Honest!!






    I knew a bloke called Roland Butter. He should have married Ms.Aitken. That would have eased her name problem
