    If that happens, the SFA will have lost ALL credibility….

  2. Auld Neil Lennon heid on

    I struggle to remember any particular game Joe played in. I have a black and white memory of a game at Dunfermline I think when Joe scored a few in a what I’ve checked was a 5-4 away victory.

     

     

    Funnilly what I do remember was the secret of his goal scoring ability which, apart from instinctivly knowing how to position himself, was the powere he could could get in a shot with very little backlift.

     

     

    RIP Joe. I hear Gabriel plays in goal and always goes to the right at penalties (but dont clip his wings)..

    Apparently Arsenal’s new away kit is made out of recycled rubbish.

    The sojers drafted in to cover the Olympics?

  7. “The club, which dates back to 1872, will now be wound up by liquidators BDO after a thorough investigation into its financial affairs over the past few years.”

     

     

    This is what is sticking in their throats!

  8. So sad to hear of the death of Joe McBride.

     

     

    For generations who followed after mine (born mid-fifties) it must seem odd how Joe became both Celtic Hero and Celtic Legend despite playing fewer than 100 games & netting less than 100 goals.

     

     

    In fact I’d assert Joe is unique in our history – I can think of no player in our history so highly regarded yet having played as few games.

     

     

    To the youngsters out there asking ‘how can that be’ I hope the following will explain the essence & importance of Super Joe. Please forgive – I may wander in memories & nostalgia.

     

     

    My generation was too young for the League Cups of 56 & 57. When I was a child, the very young men called The Kelly Kids were growing up in football. My earliest Celtic related memory is of the 63 Cup Final replay TV evening highlights. It was in my grannies cottage in Tannochside. I recall nothing of the football but do remember the camera sweep across the huge Hampden terrace, empty of supporters with 20 minutes still to play. At the time, as a six year old, nothing really registered. Years later I appreciated we had been so out-played by RFC & the Celtic team selection had been so bizzare that the fans could suffer no more embarrassment.

     

     

    In 1964 we lost to RFC in the League Cup Final, a match I do remember and I remember the bitter tears of disappointment.

     

     

    You might think Celtic were awful in these years. You’d be wrong. I wonder if any Celtic squad (excluding 1966-1970) have ever played so excitingly or created as many chances?

     

     

    You might think Celtic had no worthwhile strikers. You’d be wrong. Stevie Chalmers, John Divers, John Hughes were all regular scorers and Bobby Lennox was coming on the scene too.

     

     

    Everybody knows what happened when Big Jock came and sorted things out but how come Joe became so loved among so many other heroes?

     

     

    In my opinion 3 players helped Celtic move from good to super-great: Ronnie Simpson, Bertie Auld & Joe McBride. ‘Faither’ steadied the young defence, Bertie brought his gallus genious and street-wise and Joe…

     

     

    Well, as I said earlier we had players who were genuine goal scorers in a team constantly attacking and creating record numbers of chances. The ratio of goals to chances was not good enough. Teams which should have been killed off weren’t. Our opponents always knew they had a chance of catching us out and they did.

     

     

    Enter Super Joe…. while our other players were effective goal scorers Joe McBride was lethal. Few chances were ever going to be passed up by him. Teams now were killed off, we supporters were no longer to be frustrated nor short changed.

     

     

    I am not clever enough to put into words the effect Joe had on us but because he was in the team we knew everything would be better, we knew a future so much brighter lay ahead, we knew he was one of us and there was none better ANYWHERE. I have never met a Celtic supporter of those awsome18 months whose favourite player was not Joe McBride, who did not consider Joe as talisman, who did not love Joe McBride.

     

     

    So to the generations which followed now you know why Joe has a unique place in our history.

     

     

    I’m sorry if this sounds like an an old guy (not that old!) being sentimental and yearning for times past. I’m genuinely moved by todays news so I hope you will forgive

    The vote is not going the way they planned so they will have to come up with even more blatant actios to accommodate zombie fc (if that is possible)

    OK so what is being proposed is a top league of 14 then move onto 16. So get the calculators put and work it out!

     

     

    League of 14 is:

     

     

    14 * 2 = 28 then split

     

    6 * 2 = 10 total top half 38

     

    8 * 2 = 14 total bottom half 42

     

    ====================================

     

    13*2 = 26

     

    6*2 =12 both = 38

  11. Sixteen roads to Golgotha on

    After the vote on Friday,Celtic should take the necessary steps to have Doncaster & Regan removed from their positions of power.

     

     

    Enough is enough.

  12. Sixteen Roads To Golgatha

     

    The question I keep asking myself is why has no one(anyone) called for a vote of no confidence in these two already.

     

    Baffling truly baffling in any other walk of life they would be gone.

  13. Latest SFA SPL proposal. A top league this season of 12 an SPL 2 consisting of 36 with next season the SPL expanding to an unspecified number which is dependent on where newco FC finish…

    Neveralone, lovely words, thank you.

     

     

    For what it’s worth, I reckon my Dear Old Dad who passed in 1995 would agree with almost every word. Though he slightly favoured Bobby Murdoch as ” The Greatest” he had Joe very close behind him.

    Spoke to Joe breifly in the Thorniewood club at the Jinky memorial garden event. Still had that big grin on his face. Great Celt, great player & striker, a true gent!!.

     

     

    Was at the game when he sustained that horror injury. We all knew it was a bad one. How many wd Joe have scored that season? God only knows.

     

     

    ps I could never understand why Celtic let him go as he went to score lots of goals elsewhere!!

     

     

    You left Paradise to early Joe but Im sure you are in Paradise now with Jinky. Ronnie, Bobby, Willie & Big Jock and other great Celtic players. YNWA RIP

  20. craigwhitesoptometrist says u have 21/20 vision, is that even possible? on

    I wasn’t aware suzie was unavailable.

     

     

    Taxi.

  21. Posted this last night but understandably got lost as news of Joe’s passing came in.

     

    So I thought I’d post it again.

     

     

    I’m doing for charity event this weekend called Tough Mudder.

     

     

    It’s a hardcore 12 mile-long challenge with 28 obstacles designed by the Special Forces to test even the hardest of souls.

     

     

    I’m doing this with some mates to raise funds for the events main charity,Help for Heroes.

     

    All the funds I can raise will go toward providing combat stress recovery programs, adaptive sports programs, benefits counselling and employment services that aid in these soldiers’ transition to civilian life.

     

    By registering to take part it creates a donations page which I’ve attached below:

     

    http://www.raceit.com/fundraising/donate.aspx?event=6569&fundraiser=r3338425

     

     

    The Special Forces designed obstacles include the frighteningly named Death March, Fire Walker, Boa Constrictor and Electroshock Therapy (which is a sprint through a field of live wires giving a 10,000 volt shock … I expect to be pretty fast at this point!)!

     

     

    Since I set this up I’ve found that many people have had problem with the US centric site so I have devised this key which should help with the mandatory fields in the donation page (I’ve even created an email address for all to use so no-one needs to use their own).

     

     

    Email: toughmudder1967@gmail.com

     

    Phone: 001-1122-3344 (US format so use this)

    I’ve been on the money re league reconstruction.

     

    2 years time 2 leagues of 14.

     

     

    I’m also on the money that this is not on Regan or Doncaster’s gift.

     

     

    Both underestimate the clannish nature of Scottish Society IMO.

     

     

    Clubs in general are dictated to be fans with purchasing power. I don’t think it is in the Scottish character to want to cull off smaller clubs to benefit your own club.

     

     

    This may be slightly ironic given Celtic fans view on Hunco but I don’t think Celtic Rangers dynamic that representative of wider ( particularly lower lever) football fan population.

     

     

    Both CEOs need to culturally acclimatise to Scottish football Society before blundering on any further…?
