Abuser hypocrisy, United and Atletico


I don’t know what was said to Neil Lennon after the victory over Dunfermline last week but if it caused him to react I can imagine the tone.  The few visits I made to the South Stand during Gordon Strachan’s tenure left an indelible image of life as a Celtic manager.

Whatever Kirk Broadfoot did or did not say to Rangers fans towards the end of their defeat at Kilmarnock yesterday, does anyone seriously think it contained more invective than has been hurled at the player for most of his career?

The self-righteous indignation some football fans exhibit when an employee earning [insert a completely irrelevant figure here]exhibits intolerance to what would get you barred for life from any other workplace in the country is the epitome of hypocrisy.

Garry Kenneth, who is likely to face Celtic at Tannadice on Sunday, today told the world he will not be renewing his contract when it expires at the end of the season, saying, “Dundee United are a feeder club, it has always been like that.” Ouch.  Whatever Kenneth thinks of United he should at least respect their fans emotional investment in the club to be a whole lot more careful with his words.  Should make for a tense afternoon in the United defence, especially if we can put the big guy under some pressure.

Big game on Wednesday.  A win would fire enormous impetus into our season.  Whatever the outcome, the game will provide Neil Lennon with a guide on how to play in the hugely important month ahead.

  3. With the shocking and untimely death of Gary Speed, a real gentleman of the game by all accounts, let’s not forget our own manager’s publicly admitted battles with depression.



    What price that the bombs, bullets, assaults (both physical and in the press both broadcast and print, after all look at the evidence in the Leveson enquiry of press campaigns driving people to suicide) of last year might have had as tragic an outcome – who knows?



    Cmon Lenny and the Bhoys, bring it home this year.

    It’s a lovely old building,and I was glad it was preserved externally at the time.



    The Celtic fans who did this should be strung up.

    That’s the best question you’ve asked all day!





    DECLAN 1549



    It’s for how many nudges you have on the bandit.

  10. I need to get off, keep laughing out loud and people in work beginning to wonder. My job is nothing to laugh about…

    row z and BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS – Bandit? we call it a puggy in my local. i never touch them. gambling is still a sin as far as i am aware.



    i am getting the feeling this is one of these in-jokes the new guys like me dont get like this gazebo stuff and samaras. new guys dont have a chance with you guys and these in jokes. you may aswell be speaking in riddles.

    I cant see it happening. Woman are naturally and fatally if the number of knife chases is a barometer attracted to me and always were. They pretend that they are not but the way they look straight through me and pretend not to notice when I know that deep inside their hormones are raging for just a little of my attention hasn´t escaped me. I can tell by how they carry on hurriedly walking possibly even a little brisker than usual once I shout out there names. That´s a classic female control exercise learned in school when attempting to keep your cool when confronted with a West Lothian Adonis. That´s why I stay on CQN so much. I need it just for the physical rest. I and all you married guys out there have a lot to thank Paul67 for. ;-)

    It came second in the competition for the design of the City Chambers.



    I don’t know why they built it so close to the motorway though.

    You should now retire to consider the question you have posed. Once you have formulated an empirical answer worth defending you should then log back in and post it.



    Happy Christmas and a guid Ney Year in the interim PAL

    That’s not as good as the one earlier describing Gazebo as the offspring of Gascoigne mounting Sebo!

    row z – i never asked a question. i am getting pretty tired of tryin to defend my celtic credenshuls too. you wouldnt doubt me if you saw my tattoos

  17. Don’t post much mostly look in to see whats being said after games etc. Recently been made one of Maggies Millions(thats what it was called the last time it happened to me) so got a bit of time to browse. Declan thanks for cheering me up, i thought watching Rachel Riley on countdown would have been enough but your patter has been great.



    Cheers Mick

    It is bad enough some of the crap Neil Lennon has to put up with without getting abused by a so called Celtic supporter after a crucial, if a little bit nervy, victory over Dunfermline. Any Celtic ‘fan’ who abuses Neil has no place at Celtic Park, and I do not care how long they have been “supporting”, how much they pay for their ‘season ticket’ or how many ‘shares’ they own. They are like manna from heaven for the rags.

    Town planners,eh?



    I suppose we should be grateful they didnae raze it to the ground when they were building the M8.



    They sure got rid of some good ones at the time,as well as some that should have been left as a monument to just how bad some buildings were in Glasgow at that time.



    Still,I live now in Swindon. Down here,we see an old piece of concrete and think it’s part of our heritage.



    S…hole of a place,TBH.

  21. Shouldn’t laugh, but hey…



    Zimbabwean police believe there is a nationwide syndicate of women raping men, possibly to use their semen for use in rituals that claim to make people wealthy.



    It has taken more than a year for any arrests to be made, and on Monday three women are to go on trial in the capital, Harare, over the allegations which have shocked the country.



    One alleged victim, who wished to remain anonymous, gave an account on national television in July of his experience which happened after he was offered a lift by a group of three women in Harare.



    “One of the women threw water in my face and they injected me with something that gave me a strong sexual desire,” he said.



    “They stopped the car and made me have sex with each of them several times, using condoms.



    “When they had finished they left me in the bush totally naked.



    “Some people gathering grass helped me by calling the police, who took me to hospital to deal with the effects of this drug that I had been given, as the urge to have sex was still there.”



    The women due in court have been charged on 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault – as Zimbabwean law does not recognise the act of a woman raping a man.



    They were detained earlier this month in the central town of Gweru, 275km (170 miles) south-west of Harare, after officers found 31 used condoms in the car that they were travelling in.



    The women deny the charges, saying they are prostitutes and were too busy at the time to dispose of the condoms
