Celtic will need to work for whatever they get against Dundee

248

Going three goals up at halftime allowed Celtic to play the second half against Motherwell at walking pace.  A repeat performance tomorrow against Dundee would be ideal, but games cannot be scripted.  You need to work for whatever you get first.

I would play the strongest available team from the start tomorrow and press Dundee as thoroughly as possible.  Dundee are bottom of the league, while this means they are deficient in many areas, they are fighting for their livelihoods in a way few at Celtic will understand.

I know we all have a soft spot for our former player, Kenny Miller, who celebrates his 39th birthday on Sunday.  You will remember the way he pounded the Celtic crest on his chest after scoring against Rangers 12 years ago – how proud he was to score his first goal for Celtic.  The thrill of scoring for Dundee against Newco two weeks ago was evidently less exciting.  Let’s hope he has a better birthday than Saturday afternoon.

    Yes, an incredible photographer and man. I’d read about him years ago and heard him on a radio interview where he obviously had difficulty in dealing with some if the things he’d seen, and couldnt help.

  9. JIMMYQUINNBITS STARRY PLOUGH

     

    I have met Don McCullin on numerous occasions and his talent and bravery was extraordinary.

     

    He always seemed a little ill at ease with the celebrity status and so called normal life when he returned to London.

     

    It had to be difficult talking about the horrors of war and he never really liked talking about.

     

    He was incredibly passionate on his work for UNICEF.

     

     

    Another i met was Eddie Adams who took the famous picture of the Vietnamese general executing the prisoner with a bullet to the head.

     

    Her is what he said in an interview about that picture.

     

    Two people died in that photograph: the recipient of the bullet and General Nguyen Ngoc Loan. The general killed the Viet Cong; I killed the general with my camera. Still photographs are the most powerful weapons in the world. People believe them; but photographs do lie, even without manipulation. They are only half-truths. … What the photograph didn’t say was, “What would you do if you were the general at that time and place on that hot day, and you caught the so-called bad guy after he blew away one, two or three American people?”…. This picture really messed up his life. He never blamed me. He told me if I hadn’t taken the picture, someone else would have, but I’ve felt bad for him and his family for a long time. … I sent flowers when I heard that he had died and wrote, “I’m sorry. There are tears in my eyes.”[14]

     

     

    In truth he was not a likeable guy and in contrast to Don seemed pleased with his celebrity status.

     

     

    Also it has been said that many other photographers who were present put their camera’s down and refused to partake in the photographing of a mans death.
