    Never ever thought I’d say this, but thanks to the board for giving Ange the tools and freedom to do the job

    Eintracht Frankfurt have now won 8 games out of their last 25.

     

     

    They are hardly motoring, as they prepare for Europa League Final.

    Frankfurt finish 11th, 27 points behind Dortmund, with last 5 game record LDLDD.

    Just watched our celebrations again. Superbly organized by Celtic, with well done farewell to Tam and Nir. Very emotional and singularly special occasion. I think our non-Scottish players were dumbstruck and Big Joe spoke very well about it.

    Celtic’s win way below Old Firm result on BBC Scotland football page. Hurtin’ Huns!

  8. Big Joe wasn’t having the ” how does this compare” malarkey

     

    Live in the moment he said – this is the now

     

     

    We’ll said that man

  9. Come on Liverpool. A proper football club. Chelsea’s success has been built on the billions stolen from the people of Russia. They should be stripped of all the trophies won by Putin’s oligarch.

  10. IniquitousIV on

    Liverpool 57% possession, 6 shots to 2. Still dominant, but Chelsea missed 2 good chances.

  11. IniquitousIV on

    Liverpool without the ball are very good at cutting out space for Chelsea to maneuver. ( U.S. sp. )

    In the Blaine Valley. I don’t know anyone on here but look out for a 5’7” , grey haired wee fecker with a grey beard, surrounded by a young team……come up and say hello ☘️

  15. IniquitousIV on

    Kante on for Kovacic for Chelski.

     

     

    Seems to be a lot of Chelski fans at Wemberley. They are leaving it short for traveling to Seville.

  16. That was a wonderful day, emotional and memorable, and is right up there with my favorite occassions. Ange is an inspiration, Calum choking up got me the same, Tom going off had me quivering lipped, then Bitton getting the arm band, an end of an era and beginning of a new one.

     

     

    A friend gave me his season card as they are away at a wedding. High up in 444, I normally sit in 122.

     

    I chose to take wifes old uncle 80 recently, diagnosed with ahlzeimers couple of years ago, he gave up his season book after getting confused in the saint johnstone car park snd not being able to find the bus.

     

     

    Pandemic hasnt been kind to the old people, he really did feel lonely, isolated, and no celtic either, Couldnt even go to mass, which really affected him. Last time i asked him to go he said thanks but no thanks, i would be scared i get lost.

     

     

    This time, last night call him ……. do you want to go to ………….

     

     

    AYE I DO, AYE THATS BRILLIANT, THANKS FOR THAT, WHEN ARE YOU PICKING ME UP,

     

     

    no hesitation this time.

     

     

    he called our house, before i was even up today, talked to wife, is stivs up yet, when is he coming for me. she told him quarter past eleven, stay in the house he will call you when he gets to parkhill.

     

     

    he is in the new flats built on top of saint stephens ground, kind strange getting to southfield road, and the old jannies houses are there, and a whole newly built estate, and quite lovely it is to. people deserve good houses, i like that this is happening, however long it takes.

     

     

    But, where the nameplate is , there is old owen out in the street.

     

     

    whit you dain, i was pickin you up at the flat,

     

     

    aye but you dont know where my flat is, so you might have got lost and then we would be late.

     

     

    and how long you standing there for ?

     

     

    since quarter to eleven. ………. like i was told.

     

     

    anyways he yapped away whole way up like a kid going to their first game, super excited to be out, without a mask and no palaver, and back to celtic park,

     

    Tricolours are everywhere , well in the celticsupporting areas, we got to Tesco, and walked out, he walks faster than me, even a couple of little jogs across the roads. He was playing non-contact fives, up till the beginning of pandemic.

     

     

    I took him to the gate i go in, explained where to go, realy just in front of where he used to sit, and near two other nephews, who are waiting on him. I told him, after the match you stay right were my seat is and i will come get you. He gets through turnstyle goes to go left, i said, no go right, he tuns to go right, i turn to go, and he turns again and toddles off left.

     

     

    ffs.

     

     

    so i go up the 444, move into the north stand, hang about one of the tunnels, the view of a mtch up from up there is just incredible, and the view of south glasgow, but i keep scanning down to see if i can see the old fella.i enjoyed the first half, the goals, the movement, (kyogo 2nd was a special touch) the atmosphere, but still the worry over the old fella.

     

     

    no signal i walk round at halftime, i ping the nephew, he never turned up stivs, we have been looking out for him whoole game. damnation.

     

     

    watch second half a wee bit agitated but not about the game for a change. 15 to go, decided to get downstairs, tried to jook through the number 7 level, steward at door wouldnt let me.

     

     

    so outside and wait on the gates to open, then in i go, goes to my are, no owney, up and down each of the tunnels no owney, asked stewards if they had seen hom, got poils involved just in case anything had been reported in, nothing, i was getting a wee bit panicky now, goes up last tunnel at the original corner i sat in, 144 all these years ago, and there he is. happy as larry, laughing and singing away, buddied up with a bhoy from easterhouse who seeing he was a bit lost, said, you stay next to me, and dont move, and your nephew will find you laters, and thats what happened, well done big Paul, what a lovely celtic thing to do.

     

     

    we waitid in the celebration, ange stood right in front of us, we did our own photo bomb with him in the background. it was somethign special.

     

     

    back to the car, i said lets go down the gallowgate see whats happening, then another thought, have you ever been in saint marys, no he said, off we went. he was overjoyed to be there, very devout, can i go in and say a prayer, aye, what else would you do. looked at the mural and the pctures of the brothers, and then he went to the front pew and did his thing.

     

     

    i explained the memorial, by this point he was filling up himself. we drove down the rest of the gallowgate thousands on the street flags up every post, wonderful imagiry, incredibly on hitting erchant city, i spied the other nephew , walking to town staying out, putting on his own show, window down, see you ive been lokking for you the whole match.

     

     

    Onwards, up high street, couldnt get on motorway, drove all the wat to bishopbriggs and across the north of the city, those wee toons you think are not celtic strongholds,and guess what, there is indeed green white and orange all over the place, then hiy faifley roundabout and its like an irish town.

     

     

    got back to the port, got to his flat, can you come in and fix my telly, it went blank after the guys installed the box. aye, it was just he hit the surce button, and took it off hdmi,

     

     

    when did it go off ? oh a couple of days ago.

     

     

    dearie me, no tv for a few days, no wonder he was desperate to get out.

     

     

    fixed, content, he says “can i shake your hand that is one of the best days of my life”

     

     

    now, i need to get changed for 5 oclock mass , aint going to holy family as hill is too steep, buut will go to saint francis and see my gardens (he did them for years)

     

     

    and then as a aprting shot

     

     

    “those chinese players are really fast, i like the baldy wan even more than the bhoy with the hair”

     

     

    i didnt know whether to laugh or cry,

     

     

    one of the best ever days for me as well.

    Lewandowski tells Bayern he wants to leave.

     

     

    Messrs Nicholson and Lawwell. Over to you.😊

  19. IniquitousIV – Decent shout, but if Kyogo and Giakoumakis can stay fit next year we shouldn’t need a 3rd choice striker ;)

  20. IniquitousIV on

    Watching the FA Cup Final. Maybe Ernie was half right? Maybe just go straight to penalties?

     

     

    I often think, watching U.S. basketball, why not go straight to the last 2 minutes? That’s where most games are decided.
