Ajeti angst, avoid betting on Celtic


I should know better, but the SFA ban on Albian Ajeti was simulation at Rugby Park was as surprising as it was ridiculous.  Killie’s Colin Doyle, went to ground fully committed but was beaten to the ball by Albian.  The keeper clipped the Celtic striker’s heel when he was unable to make contact with the ball without going through Albian.

It is up to the match officials to decide if that was enough to merit a penalty but with contact made in this manner the player should not be punished for going down.  The officials got themselves into a mess for missing the first half penalty on Odsonne Edouard, just as the SFA got into a mess when judging the apparent good character of a player who committed a dangerous act.  We have weak football governance in this country, in case you didn’t notice.

Stephen Robinson resigned as Motherwell manager in the first days of the New Year after a form slump that ended with a 3-0 defeat to Hamilton.  Under new manager, Graham Alexander, the Fir Park side have lost only once (at Pittodrie) in five games, that includes one of the rare occasions Newco have dropped points this season.

There are no easy games for Celtic these days and tomorrow’s will be as challenging as last weekend’s visit of St Mirren.  We have the playing squad to record another comfortable victory, but I suggest you avoid betting on it.

    Is that the rugger result or the hoops ? 😉



    I’m a wee bit on the fence with jag ( jab in Englandshire)


    Surely there should be long term trials and we have been told they are using sars test etc



    For the government to absolve the pharmaceutical companies of blame gives me the fear


    Like you I’ll continue to drink but unlike you exercise went out the window when the knees and hips caved in

    Supercar,Twizzle,Torchy the battery boy and westerns like Boots and Saddles,F Troop,Wells Fargo,Wagon Train all from my early teens (1963). Also from a time with Jimmy McGrory as manager when we won nothing,unless glasgow cup or charity cup is counted.Then BOOM 1965 Scottish cup final winners and more honours along the way….and 1967!!!!

    Marine bhoy


    He ate chewing gum and swam under water






    Casey Jones and Champion were 1950s,but good television viewing,not forgetting we had BBC and ITV in our living rooms,unlike the wall to wall coverage today.

  6. AT, loved the Barleycorn. First time I saw them was in Salthill my old mother couldn’t believe it when they started a song with “here is a song for the big fella from the Milton, Glasgow” and played the Broad Black Brimmer

  7. Ye god’s TSOAL is alive.


    Don’t post much now but still remember interaction from that Bhoy when I tried to join a Hoot.

  13. One thing I remember about that mini-hoot was Oldtim67 in a superb white linen suit chatting up some lassies.



    Talked to some guy whose house backed into the sea in the far east- Barcabhoy?- and loved his patter Crackin guy.



    Another guy who travelled the world and saw Celtic when he could, sorry my memory is shite – but who had just flown in. Lovely guy.



    BT – who made his wife pick him up for his return to Blantyre. Claimed he had Celtic history in his family. (Probably bullshitting)



    Reason I’m saying this is some guys on here wouldn’t be so antagonistic or rude if they sat down face to face and chatted.



    If you are on here you’d hopefully be a Tic fan and accept alternate opinions as if I was sat across from ye!



    Just like you would at a Hoot.




    Peace out
