Contingency party arrangements

831

Those of you with a ticket for Sunday can wish for an Aberdeen win tonight all you like, but be ready with contingency party arrangements, just in case. I know it’s six-in-a-row, I know this isn’t 1998, the towns and villages of Lanarkshire will not be adorned in green and white, but don’t switch your phone on after leaving a cinema tonight to hear than an hour earlier Celtic became Premiership champions, season 2016-17.

Winning the title without watching Celtic play is far from ideal. Winning the title away from Celtic Park has always involved more stress than I thought is absolutely necessary, but I’m as excited today as any of you will be with your match tickets in hand on Sunday morning.

In 10 hours we could be champions again! Get ready for it.

Wee Shay’s Green Army

Lennybhoy and TommyTwistsTommyTurns are looking for volunteers to distribute fliers for Wee Shay’s Green Army Raffle (which will be drawn on Thursday 25th May 2017 at Celtic Park).

They are looking for volunteers to distribute fliers advertising the raffle ahead of the Partick Thistle game at Celtic Park on 5 April. If anyone can help, please email walkwithshay@yahoo.com .

Thank you.

Enjoy yourself tonight, I have a feeling……….

    BEATBHOY on 31ST MARCH 2017 12:55 PM,

     

     

    It is indeed an utter sham.

     

     

    I rolled the dice last time and renewed, there were loud noises on social media about the club doing something about the farce and then there was CL tickets to consider if we qualified, so I gave the club the benefit of the doubt and put my money in. The ole sands of time as they say are running out and the evidence of inaction by our club no longer needs to be inferred. The evidence is there, prima facie, so to speak.

     

     

    Regarding the SPFL website entry for Airdrieonians. The 75/76 second division title listed was won by Clydebank who subsequently changed their name and relocated as Airdre United. If I recall correctly it was only in 2013 they were permitted to changed their name to Airdrieonians as another team who had used that name went bankrupt in 2002.

     

     

    As for winning the league, to paraphrase a legend, every title is a great title.

  2. Couldn’t care less where or when we win the league as long as we win it as early as possible. Ideally a league would be clinched at a full Celtic Park but I still hope one of the two chances are taken before that could happen on Wednesday.

  3. i don’t care how or when we clinch the title, and i really wouldn’t mind if Aberdeen lost tonight to confirm us as champions. I’m not going to say “without Kicking a ball” because we’ve earned it in every game we’ve played so far this season.

     

    Another reason i wouldn’t mind winning it tonight is, being a Celtic fan in Aberdeen, it would give me an extra days gloating over sheep fans :-)

     

    And. As if that wasn’t enough, if Aberdeen lose tonight, I hope it will make them more determined to beat ICT on tuesday night, and i have them in round 2 of GFS2

    Interesting podcast on Johnny Madden

     

     

    The first man to ever lead a Celtic forward line and the father of Czech football.

     

     

    *we bit of useless trivia here but Jack McGinn’s late wife was a relative of Johnny Madden.

    May the media coverage battle commence – big changes ahead on and off the pitch in @UEFA competitions …

     

     

    https://stv.tv/sport/football/1384509-spfl-tv-blackout-on-champions-league-nights-ended-by-epfl/?utm_content=buffer07fe1&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

     

     

    “The Memorandum of Understanding between EPFL and UEFA formally expired on 15 March 2017. This will give all European Leagues total freedom to schedule their matches as they see fit – including on the same days and at the same kick-off times as UEFA Club Competitions. Due to these historical circumstances, the EPFL is now calling for the very first time an extraordinary General Assembly that shall take place in Geneva on Tuesday 6 June 2017.”

    I see Brendan says he wants a playmaker, a winger and a centre half in the summer. Can’t argue with that.

     

     

    With a few players out of contract in the summer and a few that may move on it will be very interesting to see who comes in.

    MAGS…

     

    That Brexit letter:

     

     

    Dear Foreign Types,

     

    We won the war,and don’t forget it.

     

    We’re leaving you.

     

    We have the best Queen and are more civilised than you.

     

    Because of the EU we have had to bomb some far away countries (mostly Muslim countries with oil and that) and then watch with horror as swarms of the ungrateful recipients of those bombs have the temerity to try and flee with billions of them heading for our Great United British Kingdom.At the last report there was an estimated 4 billion waiting on a boat only yards from Dover.And it’s common knowledge that at least 4.5billion of them are Al Qeada jihadist benefit cheats.This is all 100% the fault of the EU.

     

    We are also going to be able to train and hire 10.56 million new surgeons,doctors and nurses weekly with the savings we’ll make from not sending all our money to Brussels to be spent on a mosque build in the centre of the Vatican that will be used to radicalise unemployed scamers from Eastern Europe.These are the worst type of foreigner as they attempt to slightly resemble us proud Brits with their lack of colouration and one should remain vigilant to their threat.It is the fault,entirely,of the EU that some foreigners are caucasian and therefore harder to ‘spot’.

     

    Lastly,it was undeniably the fault of Europe that our much maligned financial centre,the city,had to endure bonus upon bonus whilst blaming the poorest in society for the corporate economic implosion of the late noughties and forcing poor Gideon Osborne to apply austerity that blighted millions of peoples lives.Gideon has still not got over having to do that as he never got under it in the first place.Well anyway,that was the EUs fault.

     

    And straight bananas.Even though that was a non-story it still goes to show how inferior you Europeans are.

     

    Rule Britannia,no surrender,WATP,GSTQ,two World Wars one World Cup.

     

     

    Yours in smugness,

     

     

    Theresa Might

    Ah that is obviously the murderated watered down version :)

  10. SAVOUR EVERY TROPHY

     

    Aye, it’s that time again………Celtic FC are on the verge of yet another Trophy, another League Title beckons whether it’s tonight, or Sunday, or whenever ?

     

    I say ” Aye it’s that time again”, for a particular reason. Perhaps some of the younger Celtic support have only known the last six years or so, and again it would be ever so easy for some to think it’s always been this way for Celtic and the marvellous support that we have ?

     

    Party times this season, and the season before, and the season before etc, etc. Years like the recent years, can make some feel that these days have always been….and they will never end ?

     

     

    Hopefully our continuous winning streak of League Titles will go on for many, many more years ?

     

    Maybe, just maybe this particular 61 year old Celtic man will never see any other club other than my beloved Celtic winning the League in what’s left of my lifetime.

     

    Now there’s something to truly dream about.

     

    But, it’s when times like this come around, that my thought’s once again turn to an older Celtic generation than my own.

     

     

    In the 1950’s I was but a wee Bhoy in the making, who had yet to see the Celtic with my own eyes in the flesh, although my Da travelled everywhere to see The Hoops with family and friends ( He didn’t take me until season 1961/62). My Da was never going allow me not to feel the passion of Celtic….it was always going to happen !

     

    My Da would have been in his twenties in the 1950’s, and as I said followed Celtic home and away. History tells us that the 1950’s was not a particular successful period for Celtic FC, and of course the Celtic support.

     

    Aye, we had October 1957….and the 7 – 1 League Cup Triumph against Rangers to celebrate ( and quite rightly, we still do), but from that victory Celtic and the Celtic support had to wait until 1965, to experience a winning Celtic team, when the Bhoys beat Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup Final ( 3 – 2)…..the rest as they say, is History.

     

    I often think of how awful it must have been for my Da and my Celtic supporting older relatives back in the 1950’s, and especially those barren years between 1957 and 1965, to experience those long barren years, especially when Rangers were winning most Trophies, and we were left in their wake.

     

    So for this particular 61 year old Celtic fan, I often feel so sorry for my Da and my older family who lived and breathed Celtic during those dark days……think about it, ………….almost eight ( 8) long years without a Trophy, far less being crowned Champions of Scotland !

     

    But this story is NOT just about my Da, and/or my older relatives…….no, this story/memory is about everyone’s Da and older family who, despite those lean times, STILL travelled all over Scotland each and every week, paying their supporter’s club dues, and their match ticket’s, just to see The Celtic play.

     

    Those of that generation ( and older), are the REAL Celtic supporters who never lost hope, and never lost their love of this famous football club, and I am so grateful to be somehow associated with those Bhoys and Ghirls, in my own small way ( I blame my Da and my uncles for that ) !

     

     

    I salute those true Celtic supporters, and this 1916/1917 League Championship title ( like all the others before), is for those Celtic supporter’s…God Bless each and every one of them.

     

    So if any Celtic supporter begins to feel just a wee bit blase, with the winning of this League Title, just stop for a moment, and think of how fortunate we really are, living in such times like recent years ?

     

     

    For ALL Celtic Da’s everywhere…it’s just my wee Tribute .

     

    Glasgow Celtic Champions !

  11. Hail Hail Tony Donnelly.

     

     

    I’m in the “don’t care when, or where the title is won”. Every one is special in its own way, and should be celebrated as such.

     

     

    That our party ruins some bigot’s weekend sitting in a shadowy corner of a ludge somewhere in no way detracts from the enjoyment either.

  12. OOPS…ME MYSELF !

     

    ” 1916/1917 LEAGUE tITLE”????????

     

    THAT SHOULD HAVE READ 2016/2017 League Title…oops !

     

    I was only 100 years oot.

     

     

    SAVOUR EVERY MOMENT BHOYS and GHIRLS.

     

    Hail Hail.

  13. Tonight, Sunday or whenever

     

    I will shout GET IN THERE Celtic,

     

    Big Jimmy

     

    Hear Hear & Hail Hail

  14. Big Jimmy,

     

     

    Good posts. We also won the league 1916 /17 with a mad unbeaten run. This was of course contributing to a real Brexit battle.

     

     

    HH.

     

     

    PS : In no way am i minimising the horrendous European events occurring in 1916 /17. Thank God Brexit now ( rightly or wrongly) will be more humane.

    Nothing much to argue with there; the cheating and mibbery has been going on for so long it’s uncertain if there was ever a level playing field. The Celtic Board from the 50’s to the 90’s never took the side of the fans and more often than not despised us! The SFA has always worked against us – since 1888.

     

     

    There never were halcyon days of a great Board and a non-cheating SFA/Hunnery establishment. We have battled against it for every trophy for nigh on 130 years and are still doing so this season!

     

     

    So, IMHO, those who accuse me of being conned/deluded/buying into the lie: they are welcome to their faux outrage this weekend; meanwhile I will celebrate another title – the 27th in my lifetime; and I’ve been to see the famous Glasgow Celtic play in every one of them!

     

     

    I’ll also be at Hampden next month and in May to watch them win the treble again – despite the mibbery and manipulation of the SFA/Hun establishment. You know what, in many ways that makes it sweeter. Not only do we win it by being better than them, we also win it despite them!

     

     

    So if the title is won tonight I will celebrate and enjoy it; if I have to wait till Sunday, so be it. It will be just as good no matter when and where we win it!

  16. Bhoys & Ghirls,

     

     

    Further to the post above from VFR800.

     

     

    Don’t the the cheating and mibbery of others f@ck with your happiness.

     

     

    Enjoy and celebrate the occasion when it comes. ( Tonight hopefully, for reasons given earlier )

  18. Big Jimmy,

     

     

    while I was attending Celtic sporadically from about 1954 (as a wee wee bhoy), I was a regular from about 1958. I never saw us win anything significant until the 65 Final. The feeling of utter joy of that day will NEVER leave me. Best day ever watching Celtic and that includes (among many many others) Lisbon, Love Street and Seville. Even winning the league in 66 couldn’t match that feeling.

  19. Not had a chance to read back yet so apologies if mentioned already..

     

     

    I don’t care when title is won but if I had to choose then I would choose Sunday, however if Dundee win tonight then the title has been won in March..

     

    Also would I be right in thinking if that happens then the Huns lite would have to clap us onto the park on Sunday..

     

    Probably childish but I would have a right good chuckle at that.

    On the plus side – 117 entries now for Goals For Shay 2, exactly the same as last time even though 19 who were in it last time aren’t yet in it this time.

     

    On the (slightly) down side – still waiting on 31 picks coming in for Round 1 (and 33 for Round 2, our midweek special!)

     

    Back on the plus side – there’s still almost 19 hours left (incorporating one more sleep!!) to get your entry in. Dead easy to play and OPen To All. Just drop an email to us and we should get back to you tonight or early tomorrow morning. cqnpredictor@gmail.com

  22. !!Bada Bing!! – that date is on our ole Official Website too. Saturday noon kick off. By then a relatively meaningless game…… ;-)

  23. !!Bada Bing!! on

    CELTIC’S post-split Ladbrokes Premiership fixture against Rangers at Ibrox has been confirmed for Saturday, April 29 (KO: 12noon).

     

    It will be the second visit to the stadium for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season. The previous clash, on December 31 last year, saw goals from Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair give the Hoops a well-deserved 2-1 victory.

     

    The other post-split fixtures have still to be announced.

  25. No contest between winning the league at the end of 90 minutes because of the result achieved and winning it while sittin in the house or driving about in the motor and hearing that your rivals blew the chance to take it to the death.

     

    End result is the same but the celebrations from the players are not.

     

    Give me the moment Moussa, Sinky or Stretch slams in the winner of our defining game to clinch the title and the spontaneous joy of the players and fans as they all celebrate that goal and the final whistle over the sedated and manufactured ‘celebration’ at the end of our game when we already know its in the bag.

     

    End result is the same but the joy and memories are on a completely different level…….imo of course.

     

     

    Won a league as a player once on the final day of a season v our rivals and it felt like a cup final…….everybody off to the pub and we were all in some nic.

     

    We won it again the following season when the closest to us dropped points in a midweek fixture which meant we couldnt be caught…….lucky if there was half a dozen of us in the pub that night or after our final game at the weekend.

     

    To win it on the day by your own doing is amazing and just so much better.

    It’s strange how they can pencil that in when they don’t know if it’s Thistle, Dundee or ICT who will be in the top 6 and how the home/away fixtures will pan out.

     

     

    If any other team is disadvantaged they should take the SPFL to task and demand that the new team is the one to be disadvantaged.
