Quantcast

A kind of transubstantiation

840

Bobby Clark was the first Aberdeen goalkeeper I knew.  He was thought of highly, until Jim Leighton and colleagues stepped the performance levels up a pace at Aberdeen.  He has two places in the history books, one for the longest period not to concede a goal in Scottish league football, which when established in 1971 was also the European record.  He was also the first goalkeeper in European competition to face a penalty in a penalty kick competition.

Back in the dark days of the late 90s I had a Celtic mug with the message ‘Records can be broken but history can never be changed: Celtic, first British team to win the European Cup, 1967’.  Bobby Clark lost his European record within months and at Tynecastle next week Fraser Forster can break his Scottish record.  Bobby’s place as first to face a penalty competition is his in perpetuity.

Records are harder to break than they should be.  People get nervous when they approach, but it will be enormously satisfying if Celtic can sail through 31 minutes at Tynecastle without conceding.

Back in 2011 and early 2012 practically the entire CQN community was discussing Rangers impending insolvency event as an absolute certainty, but we’ve never been the most impartial community.  It was not until Daily Record journos stopped applying to Our Hero for a job and suggested ‘this excrement is about to get real’ that the penny dropped in many places.

This included portions of the Celtic support, who responded to the ‘news’ with a Congo line at Inverness, at the same time forever changing the substance of jelly and ice cream; a kind of transubstantiation, if you like.  This was no longer a sweet, it is nourishment for the ages.

Now the same newspaper has been authorised to run a story that there is doubt over this month’s payroll – would they dare suggest as much without authorisation?  When your friends are telling you they can hear the bell toll, you know where this is heading.

    And as for Sevco, be very very funny if they went the same way as Deidco.

     

     

    I see via twitter that Charlotte Fakes material may be used openly in court in the Collier Bristow v Oldco case.

     

     

    “James Doleman ‏@jamesdoleman 2m

     

     

    Court ends, judge rules “Charlotte”material is admissible in full trial as no police objections.”

    Couldn’t they just pay Ally £1.50? After all, he didn’t read his contract so he wouldn’t know whether it was right or not…..

    Big Bones, From last thread, that was some link you posted. What pleasant civilised ladies and gentlemen these Loyal citizens are.

    For the avoidance of doubt. I am a chronic sufferer of ‘Taiginess’. My long suffering wife believes that it is genetic thingy and only inflicts those of Irish blood. Symptoms include not being able to keep quiet for more than a few minutes, singing a lot, usually songs of rebellion or in my case Rebs and Cramps numbers (i’ve got gooooood taste!!!) Questioning anything and everything, never believing a word spoken by those in potions of power and or authority until there is unequivocal evidence that they are telling the truth which is sadly a rare occurance.

     

     

    Interestingly blind acceptance is a well known symptom of ‘Orangeiness’ combined with a restricted IQ and inherent ugliness of visage and personality . Allegedly this hereditary disorder usually afflicts those of Scots blood (AKA Blood of our Blood, Bone of our Bone disorder), symptoms include but are not limited to , a restricted IQ and inherent ugliness of visage and personality.

    My facing memory of Bobby Clark is that when the Dandy Dons took the lead that the aforementioned Bobby held the world record for taking his time to retrieve a ball, and actually take a goal kick.

    “the meegie”

     

     

    I don’t know if the 2 things are related, but here was a wee game or saying from when i was a kid called “the beggs” or perhaps it was “the baegs” and it would have been about 40 years ago.

     

    My recollection of it was that you “got” it if someone saw you touch something dirty but then you could quickly “pass” it on to someone else by quickly touching them and proclaiming “thumbs up, you’ve got the beggs” and sticking your thumbs up which then protected you from “re-infection”.

     

    Everyone would have to stick their thumbs up quickly so the infected kid couldn’t pass it on to anyone else!

     

     

    Don’t know if there’s perhaps been a connection between the 2 sayings?

     

     

    Anyone else remember getting “the beggs”?

  14. masty is neil lennon and both of us are supporting wee oscar on

    Just had a wee gab with matt(estadio) in sharkeys this morning looking and sounding grand, he told me he hss been given thevgo ahead to fly again, so a weebjaunt in the near future is on the cards if he can find a way of telling she who must be obeyed. He was asking sfterbyou all, still lurks,

  15. leftclicktic We are all Neil Lennon on

    When they say

     

    “Lawyers for “Oldco” R*ng*rs make motion to bring “Charlotte recordings” into evidence”

     

     

     

    BDO are the liquidators of Oldco R*ng*rs. They now run Oldco R*ng*rs. The lawyers for Oldco R*ng*rs are the liquidators lawyers. There is not one one set of lawyers for Oldco R**rs and a separate set for the liquidators.

     

    Seen on TSFM :)))

     

    Off out seems i’m being “Took” to Asda :((
