    That puts you on the magical 67 if you include The Coronation Cup.

     

    ________________

     

    Me too! Coronation Cup was the 1st Final I attended – taken by Granda.

     

    A wee Treble this year would be nice – a trophy for every year I’ve been here (God willing).

     

    Would love another Seville – only this time with the reversed result! :-)

  2. CHRISTMAS DINNER @ BV

     

    Is the meet up this Friday ticket only ?

     

    If not, is it okay to turn up and just concentrate on the drink and have no dinner ?

    You’re in The 67 Club.

     

     

    It’s a counter,my mind is made up!

  5. Praceta .and was it played on a Sunny May evening,i can’t seem to remember the score,but I get the feeling.that one of the players,who scored,was Bobby Evans ,the redhead centre half.would that be right.

  6. Apparently the vote was lost by 1% and Sally didn’t vote so he’s getting the blame. No surprise there, he wouldn’t go early and rip up his contract and now he doesn’t want the value of his shares to plunge even further. Sally only cares about his own bank balance. When will they realise that.

    Re your post last night re 100 against 160 odd trophies

     

    You make a sound point

     

    Each honour won was won by hard work and endevour by both fans and team.

     

    Bet those who experienced charity cups and Glasgow cups especially in lean times, will not look on them as a lesser honour.

     

     

    To that generation i raise a glass

     

    God bless their unstinting support

     

     

    To the contraryness of fans like Ned McGinn who in our fifth year wanted our board to censure the pope for not replying to a request of a special blessing after we won 3 trophies:-)

     

     

    To all long gone who gave us Celtic

     

    They kept it lit:-)

     

     

    Hail hail Celtic

    Cheers Baba, by the way I agree with yer early morning assessment I thought Big Jozo was brilliant yesterday, he has a real football brain, his tackle come pass for Rogic’s goal showed that clearly he was determined to finish what he started:))

     

     

    He’ll do for me:))

  10. TIMBHOY3 – from Celtic Wiki:

     

    Match1953-05-20:Celtic 2 – 0 Hibernian, Coronation Cup Final – Pictures – Kerrydale Street

     

    In the final at Hampden Park Celtic met the outstanding Hibs side who had been league champions in the two previous seasons, and had goal difference rather than goal average been used to separate them from Rangers, with whom they had tied on points, they would have won the League in the current 1953. They were at full strength for this game and were the top dogs for the title with their “Famous Five” frontline.

     

    The pitch was heavily damp after heavy rain the previous day. Still the pitch was playable enough.

     

    Mochan, who had joined the club from Middlesbrough, scored a magnificent goal from long range after 28 minutes. It was around 35 yards out from goal, a wonderful shot.

     

    For almost the entire second half, Hibs laid siege to the Celtic goal, with the Easter Road Famous Five in full flow.

     

    Only keeper Johnny Bonnar stood between Hibs and victory. He broke the hearts of the Hibs players with a series of magnificent saves, especially from Bobby Johnstone and Eddie Turnbull. One report described his goalkeeping as “bordering on the miraculous”, and thousands of Celtic fans congregated at the front entrance to chant his name.Surprisingly only weeks before Celtic had tried to buy a goalkeeper from Morton to replace him. Thankfully that fell through.

     

    With just three minutes remaining, Jimmy Walsh scored the second, Celtic coming out the winners 2-0 before 117,060 spectators.

     

    For a Celtic side in the doldrums this was a great pick-me up. The club had floundered for many years since the start of the Second World War, and it was hoped this was help to regain our pride. It was a booster for the club and laid the foundations to push us ahead to land the double of league championship and cup in 1953-54; we valiantly fought to win that coveted double. It was a wonderful purple patch which sadly wasn’t to last, but made a lasting impression on Jock Stein which likely ingrained in him the importance of the domestic cups to act as a platform for later success [the Scottish Cup victory of 1965 is said to have been the platform that created the glory years ahead].

    Have little recollection of the match – was taken (lifted over) as a treat as I was about to start Primary School (aged 5) that August. :-)

  11. Hello again all you young rebels.

     

     

    What a team, what a club, what a support all amazing thank you all.

     

    Big Tom’s goal and our win shown on the national news here, thats

     

    a rarity, maybe all my cheeky emails to their sports editors are

     

    finally paying off :-))))

    Rangers board have hung club legend Ally McCoist out to dry. Releasing voting info to the press is a clear breach of shareholders rights.

    She’s good now mate – thanks for asking!

     

     

    She had some kind of gastro-intestinal problem. Vet gave her appropriate medication and she’s back to normal thankfully. She’ll be able to re-engage with Neil Lennon’s French Bulldog who we sometimes bump into while out for a wee jaunt in the West End. :-)))

    One of my favourite movies :-))

     

     

    Lots of funny moments – but I always forget about the pathos at the end. Kinda wistful….

    It might not be the greatest movie ever made, but it is my favourite.

    Coisty was pressured into taking a reduced pay off.

     

     

    His reputation was trashed (largely due to his own incompetence right enough).

     

     

    He owes them nothing

    A hangover?

     

     

    I think the best summation ( is that a word?) came from Brian Glover in the Minder eoisode ‘The Beer Hunter’

     

     

    I feel as though a rabid rat just crawled up my digestive tract. And died.
