Car salesman called in game of poker


The cabal failed.  Through their point man in the Highlands they thought had the numbers the null and void the entire league season.  Poker was the game of their choice and they intimated they had documented evidence of wrongdoing at the SPFL in their hand.  Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie must go!

Fortified, the SPFL called their bluff.  ‘We call you, show us your hand!’  There was no response.  It was pitiful.  Still, today, they call for an investigation.  Produce your evidence or, respectfully, shut your greetin’ face.  There is no evidence, but they cannot say that.  Consequently, they have left fans disillusioned, paranoid and bitter, not a demographic you would want to build an empire on.  All this when they need to queue to buy tissues from the supermarket.

For the record, Celtic have been significantly stressed throughout this period.  We held no aces; but if I were to list those I would never play poker against, Peter Lawwell would be in top spot.

We are not in the business of offering a job to an exec at a Championship club if he could provide a vote.  But we could offer experience, sincerity and assuredness.  This proved to be enough while the car salesman was ranting about Private Eye.

Now Ann Budge is to head up a working party to look into league reconstruction, I think we all know how well it will be run.  In her statement this morning, Ann is still expressing anger – at others, not at those who contrived to leave Hearts four points adrift of the third best supported team in the third largest town in Lanarkshire.

All the angst you witnessed since yesterday is all about stopping Celtic winning the league in the only way possible – by ensuring no one can win the league.  We would still prefer to complete the season on the park, but that will not happen.

This will be a memorable season in our Celtic supporting lives.  You have a tale to tell to future generations.  There is not a championship winning game to discuss, just a beautiful asterisk.  Own the asterisk; tell people that as the floodlights went out across Europe, we stood 13 points clear.  Tell them our asterisk denotes sporting performance, not cheating player registration.

This has been a sweet one.

  1. Good morning CQN from a grey sky but dry Garngad



    So seething Gerard wants an independent inquiry into why the Lower leagues have been called.



    WTF has it to do with him? What damage does it do to Sevco if the lower leagues are completed and much needed cash handed out.


    Oh wait it’s because they are scared in case they call it and we are champions. Hunbelievable



    When is this Klub getting fined for bringing the game into disrepute. Them, Hearts and Partick Thistle, fine them and make an example.

    filled wi huns….oh wait… think i’ll just get the princess to


    tie me to the chair.

  5. Morning to DAVID66 and MICK…


    I know this wont happen…. but wouldnt it be magic IF The SPFL gave the huns their ” Prize Money”….and then immediately FINED them the same amount for bringing the game into disrepute ?


    As the Huns are wanting Doncaster suspended etc…wouldnt it also be magic if Doncaster became a ” Whistle blower”, and threatened the Huns with what really happened with Stewart Regan and co and all the “strokes” that were pulled in the Huns favour in 2012 and beyond….without incriminating himself…IF Possible ?




    HH Bhoys.

  7. Isn’t it amazing that you can talk to someone on the other side of the world in an instant.



    When you think back to writing letters and then phone calls and now the World Wide Web that allows blogs such ad this and people to communicate in an instant….Amazing



    D. :)

  8. Big Jimmy – Goid morning, I hope you are well thus fine morning as the sun breaks through.






    D. :)

  9. As the Huns are so full of “Morals” in their never ending statements ( among other things !)….As they are calling Celtic’s possible Title as being “Tainted”…then surely the Prize Money they are about to be handed for finishing 2nd…is also “TAINTED” ?



    Somehow, I cant see that Mob handing back any prize money or donating it to the NHS etc ?



    Lets see how strong they really feel about anything that is apparently “Tainted”…lets call their bluff.

    Jimmylike you I haven’t been over the door since left the office on 20th March



    Facial hair coming on fine but still little on top 😉

  17. After weeks of the numbers of new cases and deaths reducing in China there are worrying stats appearing ,in recent days there were single and double digit fatalities in China, latest number in last 24hrs is 1290.


    Hoping it’s some kind of glitch in the reporting of the stats. Very worrying if not.




  18. I was last out and in my local Pub on Wednesday 18th March…for the next two days I decided to stay aff the beer and stay at home…Then the Lock Down was announced on Friday 20th March on TV…I had wasted TWO Days NOT getting wasted !




    Stay safe mate.



  19. A good and safe morning to all!



    Many thanks for your kind wishes last night, very much appreciated!



    Last night I posted in response to the huns most recent statement and see that the post has been deleted.



    I would suggest that if I had posted exactly how I feel about the huns I would have been red carded.



    In saying that I apologise to anyone offended by my use of the F word.



    The only problem with that is there are not many polite words you can use when talking about the huns.



    They really are the lowest of the low and now deserve all that they are soon to get.



    Bring it on!!!

    G’day DBHOY



    Hearing a lot about second wave infection and apparently


    that will occur everywhere until we get a vaccine.


    But i’d prefer the clever and more informed medical people


    to explain it better.


    Hope you are all safe and locked down over there in Perth.


    H.H . Mick

  21. Big Jimmy – I have lost track of days Furloughed/lockdown and cans of lager I have drunk😂😂😂



    I have never cut my grass as much as I have the last 3 weeks, sick of the sight of it. I have a bloody side garden with a 5 a side park in it, a feckin nightmare.



    So you are going to fine Huns for being ugly, you must be a billionaire with wealth off the radar like Craigy Whyte😂


    Mick has a fortune waiting for a handsome Hun if he can find one but don’t tell him there isnae wan.😂






    D. :)

  22. celticforever on

    Big Jimmy hope soon you can make up for lost time and get plastered



    Think UEFA have a meeting next Thursday so heres hoping its 9 in a row then

  23. Hi Mick,



    Second wave infection, so much for ‘herd immunity’.



    We seem to have escaped the worst of it over here. Still able to go to the beach and parks with the family as long as we ‘social distance’ ourselves from folk, so can’t complain.



    Did you hear about that complete rocket in Adelaide who tried to get a refund on the 150 packs (32 rolls per pack) he had stockpiled, was literally told to GTF by the store manager. Good on him.



    Hope all is well in the rebel peninsula.




  24. DAVID66






    I don’t feel a day over 70!



    I too spend a lot of time in the garden although it’s not as big as yours.



    Any sign of the sun and I’m out there. It’s good for my psoriasis!



    Only wee problem is it’s just too cool to take ma tap aff!



    Still ma knees and foreheed are quite broon!



    Take care!
