Aspirations low for Paris but not meaningless

205

We’ve seen dead rubbers away to tier one Champions League teams before and they’ve not been pretty. Celtic still have Europa Cup football to target, but it is unlikely Brendan Rodgers will put too much hope into collecting the necessary points in Paris tomorrow evening.

It is more important that we mature our ability to perform at this level. We need to return to a similar environment next season packing more of a punch that we do right now. This is not the most aspirational aim a Celtic team has had in Europe, but I would settle for it.

    So sad that James Bolam ostracised him,and refused to allow repeats. When friends fall out…

     

     

    Here’s the first episode from WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE LIKELY LADS. All other episodes are on the sidebar. I know that cos I watched them all last year!!

  2. Bonjour, mes amis d’un East Kilbride humide et bruineux. Bonne nuit aux Bhoys ce soir tant au parc qu’à l’extérieur.

     

     

    Or something like that ;-)

    But for Leigh’s terrific goal,we were looking at ONE point clear of Aberdeen by the end of the day.

     

     

    Four clear of the huns.

     

     

    They’d have been fired up by us dropping points. Leigh burst their bubble,and probably burst their season. Along wi a few coupons.

     

     

    Bookies coupons,hun coupons,dons coupons-all FUBAR’d.

     

     

    Which is nice…

    Catch the latest from JJ while you can. It might be deleted by order shortly.

  7. Good morning Bhoys from a rain soaked central Éire.

     

    Really lookin’ forward to the game tonight, let’s cherish and enjoy going to places like Paris in the biggest club competition in the world. The French capital is awash with Hoops by all accounts.

     

    I can’t wait for my next trip over to Paradise in less than two weeks for the Anderlecht game, it can’t come quick enough.

     

    Possible team for tonight: Craigy; Mika, Jozo, Bhoyata, KT; Broonie, Olly; Paddy, Armstrong, Scotty, Dembélé.

    I finally had the pleasure of meeting CORKCELT prior to the BM match. He was every inch the man I expected,a total gentleman.

     

     

    Pleasure doesn’t do him justice,nor did the brief time with him as I had a CT taxi due.

     

     

    I was only there thanks to the beneficence of ANGELGABRIEL and ROBINBHOY. It’s a shame that ROBINBHOY can’t make the games,not a pleasant time he’s having just now,but when real good Tims like yourself make the effort and expense to get over,it’s brilliant to know that there’s hope of getting a ticket.

     

     

    And it’s fantastic to know that you’ve got one!!!!

     

     

    I’ll hook up,wi you sometime too,bud. Bank on it. And you enjoy it in a fortnight.

    Empiric data tells us that the upset is possible; not probable, but we have upset the odds before!

    SFTB, it would indeed! He is an odious character (on the park at least) and hopefully he knows he has been in a tough game tonight, especially if Eboue partners Brown and N’tcham!

    Fellas,I wouldn’t wish an injury on anyone. Not my style.

     

     

    But,aye,if ever anyone deserved one…

    That you been to Hull and back?

     

     

    Hope wur boy was in fine form. Tell Mum to stand to attention beside the phone-you know what she’s like!-and get the coffee on and the fags oot!

  14. Greetings from an overcast (with occasional sun ) Paris – 10 degrees .

     

     

    Great day yesterday — digging through several hundred Blue Note LPS in a minging flat in Saint Denis . Found one I didn’t have –woopee !-

     

    Curtis Fuller -Bone and Bari . A gem from 57 .. Long sought ..

     

     

    Busy day -London pal arriving early afternoon .

     

     

    As for the game — no high hopes but you never know –Pundit on the radio opined that Di Maria might start ( Mbappe. on the bench ). Midfield likely to be Rabiot/ Verratti / Pastore … Cavani and Neymar up front . .Defence as per last weekend’s game v Nantes . . Lo Celso on the bench ( IMO -he is a player !!!)

     

     

    Today’s up and oot choon—- let’s hope not !

  15. Down in londonshire I was in the company of a couple of nice chaps last night. 50ish guys so same generation as me.

     

     

    One a Southampton supporter the other a Liverpool fan. We talked all things from shankly to saint Mary’s , dalglish to saint Brendan.these guys work in the city and are in the boardroom circles of their respective clubs.

     

     

    The best part. Both know the original rangers died and both know the records Celtic are acheiving are just that. Records.

     

     

    Both also convinced Virgil is going to anfield. And Southampton will be in for another celt.

  16. PS.

     

     

    Celtic at 28/1 tonight. Got to have a nibble and another 5er on a score draw.

     

     

    Doubling it up with 2nd rangers to progres in the Europa with whoever they are playing.

     

     

    What’s that skip ?

    i hope they’ve arranged to max out their credit cards.

     

     

    Celtic players don’t come cheap anymore. And there’s a fair few are WELL beyond them.

  18. Mighty fine Chinese last night and then a good pub — Aux Folies .

     

     

    Caught some of Napoli v Shaktar — a goal from a player deemed surplus to requirements by the shambles that was Ventura’s Italy —

     

    https://youtu.be/lNhHna2Uy9Q

     

     

    Off oot -enjoy the game !!!

  19. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    AOW

     

    Hope you had a good day. My favourite local restaurant is closed on Tuesday so me and Mrs H had a meal there on Monday. Great meal washed down by a nice Sauvignon Red. Lazy day yesterday.

     

     

    BMCUW, CCB, BIG JIMMY and others,

     

    thanks for the good wishes.

     

     

    Last night me and Mrs H were looking through some old photos and bemoaning the advance of the years,the impact on our appearance, and associated age related impairments.

     

     

    Then in one album, a few pics turned up of Dougie and myself, laughing in the pub. We may rail against getting old, but we really do have to treasure every single day. Every single day.

  22. BMCUW: Cheers for your kind post. Again, I’ve only got a ticket for the upcoming Anderlecht game due to the kindness of AngelGabriel. I’m looking forward to meeting up with himself and CorkCelt (and any other CQN’ers) on the afternoon of the game for a few beers and a good ole chat about our beloved Hoops.

     

    It’s great to see the full flights on matchday again travelling over from Éire to Glasgow. The Brendan effect has well and truly hit our shores over the past year.

  23. Jeepers BMCUW, I don’t recognize myself from that post.

     

    Thanks for the kind words but in truth I’m just another bam pot who loves & cherishes everything about Celtic.

     

    I saw a post earlier about Brendan saying we cannot match the millions PSG have but nothing can match our soul.

     

    A Club that was born from Famine & Oppression, that gave an impoverished people (who had lost everything, their homes, their possessions, their Country & their native language) a sense of identity, a sense of purpose & a sense of hope.

     

    Their revenge was indeed the laughter of their children.

  24. This must be the most unusual half time talk by a manager ever

     

     

    Awful news that Sevilla manager Eduardo Berizzo has prostate cancer. But to hear he told his players about it at half-time, 3-0 down against Liverpool, and they rallied to draw 3-3, is an example of the power of sport. Good on them

    Call that dear?

    Verdict… GUILTY.

     

     

    Glad to see this Butcher of Srebrenica & Genocide finally gets his just rewards I hope the 1000’s he massacred haunt him till his dying day. Words cant describe the horror this man inflicted on innocent people
