Anchored by Foundation

1234

The sun shone, McStay’s Maestro’s ‘Celtic’ won from being two goals down and 25,000 people contributed to War Child, Unicef and the Rio Ferdinand Foundation.  Yesterday was another defining yardstick on the Celtic journey.

Getting the balance of these games right, in order to provide an actual ‘match’, is difficult, but the two sides managed it.  There were fewer Directioners there to see Louis Tomlinson than last year, but their contribution to the causes was still welcome.

Frank McAvennie scored a classic Macca goal.  Hollywood A-lister James McAvoy converted a penalty kick and looked as happy as you or I would in the circumstances.  We’re going to struggle when Tom Boyd retired from the Legends game.  Simon Donnelly and Bobby Petta looked like they could still do a job in the pro game, but special mention has to go to Gary Tank Commander (Greg McHugh).  The words “Nice, Lubo”, left my lips as I mistook Greg for someone else after a deft piece of skill.  Don’t ask me to explain.

It wasn’t football as you know it, but it was Celtic supporters doing what they do best – helping those in need.

All this came a day after the Paradise to Cardenden Cycle 2014, when a group of fans cycled from Celtic Park to John Thomson’s grave for the Celtic FC Foundation.

The Foundation is not the club, it is you, me and thousands like us who believe Celtic is something greater.  It works in four arenas:

Health
Equality
Learning
Poverty

There’s no obligation for Celtic fans to get involved, or to cherish any of the above, but I know many of us get a whole lot more out of Celtic by anchoring to these principles.

There’s a sense that we’ll see a new Celtic on Saturday.  Looking forward to it immensely.

    Get the feeling the clique on here think they are above certain people on the blog.

  2. Every time I post a longish contribution Paul posts a new thread.

     

     

    Now I’m getting paranoid that Paul takes my posts as the limit, the nadir reached…and moves everyone quickly on…

     

     

    He’s probably a good judge!!!

    Ernie is a leg end in his own lunchtime (based on his Pravda-like commemts so far).

     

    Just watched and listened to the mainstream party politicos on Daily Politics. They just don’t get it. Scottish people who want to vote yes accused by Labour of being part of an “insurgency.” You couldn’t make it up. Their arrogance knows no bounds. We will be well shot of the lot of them.

  6. I have no time for the Royal Family but I would imagine that they pay for themselves in terms of the amount of tourists who come to Britain.

  10. The wee grannie shagger is meandering through a political mine field, tossing a coin shouting heads turn left, tails turn right, if there was ever a guy winging it he’s that guy, he is to politics what Charles Green was to Sevco, but in saying that chuckles played a stormer ;)

    Interested why you would have a need to know what ‘wealth off the radar’ Jackson’s world view is?

    McStay game was a great day.

     

     

    I was also pleased to see James Macavoy score and smile on Sunday. On Saturday evening he hardly cracked a light as he was pee’d off with all the lovely young girls and celeb worshippers trying to get pics with him at the charity evening to the point of asking for security patrols to the gents. On the other hand young Martin Compton was an absolute star the whole evening and again on Sunday as he was last off the park signing autographs and allowing supporters to take selfies with him as he walked along front of main stand. He is a true bhoy. oh and he could go to the toilet for a pee himself.

    I have no tiome for the Royal family bu I would imagine they do not pay for themselves in terms of the amoount of tourists who come to Britain.

    Why would an Independent Scotland keep them? Vote loser to say they’d be ditched per chance?

    Why did Canada, Australia, New Zealand or FFS the Commonwealth countries keep them?

     

     

    Go gee me peace.

     

     

    You ernie and neganon are prtetty much full of baseless rubbish and yet fail to answer a single question put to any of you. one even comes back an lies or at best misrepresents.

     

     

    I’m past being bored with your musing.

     

     

    I’ll stick to my postings you stick to yours. Keep up the negative work. You are a genius at it.

     

     

    tara. Speak to you again in a New Independent Scotland hopefully when footy is my only topic of discussion again.
