Blinkered Views risky punt against St Mirren

1113

In his Bookies Corner article for the current issue of CQN Magazine, columnist, Blinkered Views, suggested St Mirren offered good value for a punt on relegation.  I spoke to him when he submitted the article and suggested, “Surely Dunfermline?”  He agreed Dunfermline were most likely for the drop but they offered no value.  St Mirren, on the other hand, were 9/1 for the drop and he made a good case why this was worth a bet.

St Mirren promptly spoiled Christmas for thousands (not your or me) by coming from behind to beat Rangers but that has been their only win in 8 league games.  We also don’t need to be reminded that when visiting St Mirren Park, form is a poor guide.  Celtic exited the Scottish Cup there a week after beating Saints 7-0 at Celtic Park.  They are a team who can raise their game for the big occasion and the visit of Celtic, live on TV, is as big as it gets around Paisley.

Paddy McCourt has enjoyed his visits there and has been key to Celtic collecting the points a couple of times.  Don’t be surprised if he makes a match winning appearance from the bench.

    Samaras, Commons, Ki, Forrest, Brown are all better players than Skacel and I don’t even think that he would get in ahead of Paddy McCourt either.

    RE: Adam and C.O on RTC

     

     

    Sorry to tell you pal but all you really did was help them to achieve what they set out to do, which was to drag the blog off topic.

     

     

    They are two well known trolls and you played into their hands.

     

     

    It’s nice you had fun though.

  4. Skacel. No thanks. Leave him where he is and hope he does the damage for Hertz against Her Majesty’s Really Corruct Football Club.

  5. 44 inch chest, aye right…44 inch waist more like. Did he then say: do you not know who i am?

  6. tomtheleedstim on

    Sannabhoy – I’m ok mate, probably up for ICT on 11th. Hope you are ok.

     

    I thought one of your wee bag of goodies might go down well with the Thai Tims. I presume the club will give them some kind of momento and I thought they might ask your group for input.

     

    Let me know if you end up getting involved as I’d like to contribute.

     

     

    Keep up the good work fella!!

  7. Sparta Prague striker Milos Lacny is training with Dundee United with a view to winning a contract, BBC Scotland understands.

     

    The 23-year-old Slovakian, who was on trial with Celtic in 2009, has recently completed a six-month loan with Slovan Bratislava in his homeland.

     

     

    Is this the guy who played in the pre-season friendly v Wolves, came on at half time for other trialist (Mphela?)?

    I thought the same about you when you phoned clyde.

     

     

    But instead of it being on a wee blog you done it nationally.

     

     

    I hope your proud of legitimising the moronic element.

     

     

    Glad you had fun also pal …. pal ….

     

     

    I see Clyde bumped you unlike what RTC is prepared to do with his two known trolls

     

     

    That Old Firm loving West brits for you I suppose

     

     

    HAil Hail

    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

     

    Yer havin a laugh ?

     

     

    Samaras is better than Skacel ?

     

     

    McCourt played one full game vs the huns when Sammi scored the 2 goals and, didn’t beat one player in the entire game! By beating I mean, go past a player with the ball which wingers/attacking midfielders are required to do! IMO!

     

     

    Brown nuisance-value at best! IMO!

     

     

    Commons, good player but has a lot of growing-up to do! IMO!

     

     

    The rest, would welcome a threat like Skacel i’ve no doubt.

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    Liverpool thanks Scotland and Celtic for giving them Kenny Dalglish; Thailand thanks Scotland for giving them Reamonn Gormley; the world thanks Ireland and Brother Walfrid for giving humanity Celtic. I thank my God I was born in the shadows of guys like these.

    Fantastic stuff as usual m8!

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    is that it ?

     

     

    I have news for you.

     

     

    THERE IS NO NEWS TODAY ON THE TAX CASE

     

     

    MY argumenst today even as Captain Bob were 100% legitimate … even as an imposter

     

     

    I am still getting compliments from respected RTC poster

     

     

    me thinks RTC likes his Adam and Curios onlooker too much

     

     

    How far do you and Hugh keevins go back ?

     

     

    Hail hail

  12. Paul67

     

     

    You made my day that wee post, he has been at it for years with his venom and nothing was said.

  13. playfusbal4dguilders on

    Green tide

     

     

    In fairness to him (why should I but I will) he was very sheepish and most apologetic.

     

     

    p

  14. Paul67, he is high profile but he is far from the worst; the guy is just a moronic attention seeker. Maybe the enquiry makers, if they ever get so bored they get off their asses, could look a wee bit closer to home for the deep rooted weeds.

  15. Awe Naw,

     

     

    Wee blog – 46,000 hits yesterday.

     

     

    As for “moronic element”, I asked a legitimate question and offered my own views. Rather than trying to legitimise any element, I simply wanted to highlight that things were not as clear cut as the panel would have you believe.

     

     

    As for your west-brit old firm supposition, you’re not the first fellow to try and put words in my mouth by way of a defense this week. It’s a sign of somebody who knows they’re wrong but who’s ego wont allow them admit it. Pathetic really.

     

     

    Away you go now and re-write more of your DR articles or pretend to be someone else or whatever other playground activity amuses you.

  16. p,

     

     

    fair play….i think he pricked his own ego in the exchange….

     

     

    PS..Public Enemy about to be played on Radio Shortbread….Fight the Power…how apt!!

  17. Rieperman

     

     

    It might help to imagine Awe Naw fishing, hook sharpened, with a big smile on his face…

     

     

    Or you could get upset.

     

     

    Your choice.

     

     

    U

  18. Kayal lacny on trial at dundee utd is the same chap who had a trial with us, good bit of pace ,just like bangura,if i was lenny i would give rasmusson a chance.

    You phoned the number. You participated with the hun element … jutt like Captain Bob … probably paid for the privilege too gut got off jsut like Captain Bob did too

     

     

    46,00 hits !!! Ok not tiny then above minute but it is not a surprise considering the appeal finished deliberations 24 hours ago after months of waiting and today about 3 hits until I too umbrage at the Adam and curious onlooker love in.

     

     

    I asked legitimate questions today and argued that they were relevant and I still believe them to be so or are you so far stuck up your own hin end that you think that somehow your more relevant and legitimate ?

     

     

    As for your coffee table psychological analysis …. where can you stick that one now thet your hin end is full ?

     

     

    I will as you suggest extract the urine from Hugh Keevins and his colleagues Daily record articles and you try and perfect that English accent that is now very evident

     

     

    Hey …. you might get to spend more money speaking to your buddy Hugh seen it amuses you.

     

     

    Hail Hail

  20. I’m with Mort.

     

     

    Skacel a decent, but no more than that, player.

     

    Much rather have our current players than him.

     

     

    HAIL! HAIL!

    I’ve taken a look at LMFAO and I was impressed they had over 355 million hits on a song on YouTube, unfortunately that was all that impressed me about them, I have an aversion to synthesizer music, I suppose it’s my dotage. Now, if you really want to rock how about ……CCR, pure unadulterated rock music.

    Can I ask you why you even bother phoning tabloid radio?

     

     

    I’m genuinely curious.
