Being taken for a brainless clown


I like Alex Ferguson.  He likes his football and cannot hide the respect in which he holds Jock Stein and the great Celtic team of the 60s and 70s.  Like you and I, Alex is immersed in the history of the game here, a history he contributed significantly to at Aberdeen.

So, when questioned by the Daily Record on the potential shuttering of Hampden, his overwhelming reaction was for the loss of history:

“… leaving your history behind you

“You’re throwing away all that fantastic history

“history you are throwing away

“That’s a fantastic history

“history has been formed

“The history of Hampden is riddled with fantastic games

“We need history to tell us where we’re going”

No football fans are more immersed in history than Celtic fans, it sustained us through many a dark day, so these words will resonate with you.  But fear not, there is a solution!

They can raze Hamden to the ground and have another venue BUY THE HISTORY!  Why didn’t this occur to such a great mind?  Buying history is a fairly straightforward issue in Scotland.  I now own the Crimean War, which I purchased from a guy in Edinburgh last week.

The same vendor was selling the Renaissance, which I would love to own, as I would really like to have painted the Sistine Chapel in the 16th century, but he was wanting £1000 for that, and an internal voice told me I was being taken for a brainless clown.

    I remember in 2003, in the ballot for Seville tickets, knew at least 20 Knightswood Tims, myself included who were successful. This was highly unusual for one area. Everyone who applied, got a ticket. Always wondered if Mrs MM was looking after her Corpus Christi parishoners? ;)


    Happy Easter to Maureen and You.


    God Bless

  6. ‘ shuttering of Hampden’







    Not a bad idea.



    Shutter it and entomb it in concrete. It’s what you do with toxic structures that threaten to pollute and contaminate their surroundings.

  8. Good Friday, a very restful day after some hectic times.


    The Searchers is on telly, that’s a belter. Cooking some nice lemon sole fillets over a bed of potatoes, garlic, peppers and carrots. Gammon joint bought for Sunday lunch, and will be letting someone else take the cooking tomorrow. There will be drinking also, hopefully The Orcs will be pumped at Motherwell and I will be checking in frequently to the happenings at Celtic Park.

    The thing about the Glib Offer is that there is no offer.


    If someone is offering something, they would name a price.


    No price is mentioned,


    This offer looks like a regurgitation of a previous notification, which included MASH as a shareholder.


    It looks like another puff of Ibrox smoke.



    When Bobby Murdoch won the 1969 Player of the Year Award, Hugh Mc.Ilvanney, in his piece in praise of Bobby, cited how Murdoch reacted to the attempted head butt from Ferguson.



    Hugh reckoned his reaction of not even breaking his stride would have merited the accolade alone.





    On the 25th March 2016, I had a similar experience to you.


    I landed in Dublin from the Donegal- Dublin flight and was met by WITS.


    We went for a coffee, then on the St.Kevin’s to enjoy the skills of those youngsters from different clubs.



    I went to the Aviva with my son and enjoyed FAI hospitality, before ,during and after the match.


    I also had a quick word with our Rod, who exchanged a “C’mon you boys in Green” response to my ” Hail Hail.



    In Ireland, the pint you got on Good Friday always tasted twice as good as any other day.


    Now the killjoys have spoiled it by repealing the Act!


    STSTIVS 1230



    Due to an unfortunate typo,almost certainly.

    Sorry I had to go out there, and when I was out the bloody engine blew up in my car … Nightmare.. Ah well new car needed.

    Her and my dad knew each other quite well, unfortunately he has passed away.
