Déjà vu for Celtic

340

It was déjà vu for Celtic as, one week on from the club’s end of season awards, at the PFA Scotland gala, Scott Sinclair won Player of the Year, Kieran Tierney won Young Player of the Year and Moussa Dembele won Goal of the Season, for the remarkable move away to St Johnstone. All three won the same awards at the club event last weekend.

The PFA also named Brendan Rodgers Manager of the Year, to complete a clean sweep for the champions. Sinclair is the 17th Celtic player to win the top award in the last 21 seasons, a Generation’s worth of Domination………

Brendan Rodgers will be delighted to have picked up three points on Saturday, while giving an outing to teenagers Anthony Ralston and Michael Johnston. Captain, Scott Brown, remains rested by SFA instruction ahead of Friday’s game at Pittodrie, which on paper is offers our greatest threat to invincibility.

I took the weekend off normal duties but read over the blog last night.  Many thanks for the kind wishes, they are enormously appreciated.  Feel like I’m among friends.

  1. SFTBs, I can only imagine the pain and distress of the last two weeks. Will say one for you and the family.

     

     

    Take care.

  2. SFTB

     

     

    Sincere condolences on your loss, that goes for all who have lost friends and family recently too.

    Useless Facts of the Day

     

     

    Celtic beat St Johnstone 4-1 on Saturday 6th May. That gave us 97 points and 96 goals scored.

     

     

    Celtic beat St Johnstone 1-0 on Saturday 25th January (our first league game after winning 2-1 at Ibrox). If we had stopped playing league football that day we would still be ahead of Der Hun on goal difference!

     

     

    We beat St Johnstone 5-2 on Sunday 5th February; if that was our last league game of the season, we would still be ahead of the Dandy Dons on goal difference!

     

     

    Maybe we only play each team 3 times next season to make the league more competitive!

    Advertising on TV is banned for certain sectors of commerce.

     

     

    Alcohol. Tobacco. Many drugs.

     

     

    Not gambling,probably the worst of all as you can only really drink or smoke or toke so much before you pass out.

     

     

    If yer lucky(!)

     

     

    However,we now have a new suggestion. A ban on food ads before 9pm. On the same day it was suggested that kids on free school meals face malnutrition during school holidays.

     

     

    WTF?

     

     

    Gaun yersel,Labour. Do your absolute best to make me laugh during this election campaign. Sure beats crying thinking about it.

    My sis took a skwad of Aussies to the game on Saturday.

     

     

    She was disappointed at the attendance,mortified at being stuck in the tourists section-she went to do a huddle and people joooost looked at her!-but overjoyed to see two debutants.

     

     

    That was something for the memory. And five of our Academy in all,probably our best since 2000. Though that wasn’t KD’s best moment,it gives us all pride to see the weans growing up

     

     

    I’ve seen some debuts myself over the years,TB and The Maestro as well as erm others.

     

     

    But Frank Beattie’s Testimonial for Kilmarnock,you’ll never take that away from me.

     

     

    A star is born.

     

     

    Hopefully a few of our new Famous Five will have me rhapsodising lyrically in forty-odd years too.

     

     

    And if they don’t?

     

     

    I hope I’m still around long enough to mean about it!

  8. Reading that the Munter table was not occupied at the awards last night.What could be the reason for this?.

     

    I have a feeling that it was because every one of their players was attacked at Firhill yesterday by a crowd of foaming at the mouth imbeciles.It certainly looked that way to me after Rab C Garners glorious,3rd place clinching goal.There was jostling,pushing,grabbing,fist pumping.

     

    Kenny Millers partner has said he was”Not harmed”

    An eloquent post on the sad loss of your Dear Mother Bridie, these are the hardest of times, may your mother Rest In Peace and may you and your family find some comfort and solace in each other. Our thoughts and prayers to you and yours.

    The manky mob were celebrating guaranteeing 4th place, not 3rd place yesterday!

     

     

    If they lose their next 2 games (Hearts and Aberdeen) and St Johnstone win theirs (home to Thistle and Hearts) Der Hun have to go to St Johnstone on the last day of they season and not lose to guarantee 3rd place!

     

     

    In fact if Rangers lose their two games 1-0 and St Johnstone win their two games 1-0 then a 2-0 win for St Johnstone against the huns would see same points, same goal difference, same goals scored and same goals conceded. That would mean play-off for 3rd place! Wouldn’t that be a hoot!

     

     

    It ain’t over yet.

  15. Celtic Pub…Dolphin Bar Partick Glasgow.

     

     

    FLAT owners who have been homeless for nine months after a building collapsed in Glasgow’s West End are hoping their ordeal will soon be over.

     

     

    A major demolition project is about to get underway to take down a Glasgow restaurant at the centre of a bitter dispute that has also left shops and a pub shut and a road closed.

     

     

    Residents were evacuated in August last year after a 12ft parapet wall at La Riviera restaurant in Benalder Street, Partick, crumbled onto the street below.

     

     

    The dispute has centred on a disagreement between flat and business owners and the restaurant owner about whether to demolish or repair the crumbling extension which houses the restaurant and adjoining the flats.

     

     

    The owner of the Italian restaurant, David Martyn of Angel Properties 2, is opposed to the demolition plan and raised a court action against the owners.

     

     

    He says both he and his tenant stand to lose up to £450,000 from the demolition and that ten restaurant employees will lose their jobs.

     

     

    Glasgow City Council has now stepped in because the dangerous buildings notice previously served on the owners has expired and no work has been carried out.

     

     

    The demolition is expected to take around six weeks at a cost of around £40,000 and all owners will be liable for the cost.

     

    The 14 flat owners each own around 3.5% of the building, the restaurant owner, 21%, the Dolphin pub 23% and each of the shops the remaining balance.

     

     

    Flat owners will also be liable for repairs costing around £70,000 which are necessary to allow them to return to their homes, potentially by July.

     

     

    They have already paid out thousands for structural surveys.

     

     

    Pawel Kaczyski, and his wife have spent the last nine months rotating their stay at relatives’ homes.

     

     

    Mr Kaczyski said: “We are just hoping that the repairs we are planning can go head as planned and there will not be any other issues standing in our way.

     

     

    “If we go back at the end of July it will be almost a year we have been out of our homes.

     

     

    We really want to get back home. It’s just a waiting game for us now.”

     

     

    Matthew Reilly, owner of the Dolphin pub, said: “The owners were in an impossible situation that if we wanted to demolish the building we would be liable to rebuild it.

     

     

    “The council has now stepped in and we are delighted.”

     

     

    David Martyn, the restaurant owner, said: “I will lose an investment valued at £250,000 and my tenant will lose his business valued at an additional £200,000, and his ten employees will lose their jobs.

     

     

    “The title deeds of the shops and flats state that the rebuild cost of a shop or flat which needs repaired or rebuilt must be shared among all the shops and flats. The flat owners disagree.

     

     

    “The other owners have offered to pay a global total of £20,000 towards a restaurant rebuild cost of £250,000, whereas our legal advisers say they should pay approx £190,000 as their share.

     

     

    “The title deeds provide for arbitration in the event of a dispute but that the other owners refused arbitration.”

     

     

    A spokesman for Glasgow City Council: “The dangerous buildings notice previously served on the owners expired without works being carried out.

     

     

    “The council therefore recently undertook a tender process to appoint a contractor to carry out the necessary operations to have the dangerous structure removed.”.

     

     

    A spokesman for factors, Hacking and Paterson. said: “As we do not have any involvement in the works being undertaken at the property, we do not have any further comment to make on this matter.”

    Oh,you’re a bad man,that’s an appalling vista you suggest.

     

     

    Imagine the huns having a play-off during their ten-day break-when they’re not even being paid due to 48 week contracts.

     

     

    Actually,I wish I hadn’t. It’s a long walk upstairs to the toilets in here.

     

     

    Thanks,mate…

    Unless my choice of horse improves….yes liquidation is heading my way

  19. For the elimination of doubt, Sevco can still actually win the league this season… if the refereeing at all of their games is reviewed, and enough opportunities exist for the creation of retrospective honest mistakes can be found. It is thought that there could be a 40 point swing in their favour if all the video footage can be mysteriously lost!

  20. Bhoyjoebelfast on

    Who am I?

     

    I won two league winners medals in the season.I played in the 1980 scottish cup final and got myself a winners medal. Old celtic handbooks and celtic views make great reading.

    Well when they had played 30 games and still had the semi-final to play, Pedro Nae Cashmachine said he was planning for another 10 games. Maybe the play off for 3rd is what he had in mind!

     

     

    It was while I was on Hun Media and they were talking about having guaranteed 3rd place and still possibly catching Dolly for 2nd place (being only 9 points behind them) I had a wee look. They’d need to make up 9 points and 23 goals to make second; St Johnstone only have to make up 9 points and 8 goals to make 3rd, but this hasn’t registered with those who follow Stupid FC!

     

     

    It would be a Carlsberg season if that happened – we hump Hertz to go unbeaten in the league domestically then pump Aberdeen for a full invincible season and they have a play-off for 3rd spot! It would be fantastic!

     

     

    All we would need would be for Ann Budge to lodge a complaint about their European licence!

    Sorry for the loss of your mum , ps big jimmy that was a brave post about your own mum n dad . Took guts to put that on a blog , HH AMIGO

  23. Is there no comments from CW Trial today ?

     

     

    As a wee Bhoy..I am sure it was the Dolphin Bar that my Dad would go to before Celtic games in the early 1960’s leaving me alone in my dads car with a bottle of Cola or Cream Soda, and several bags of crisps, whilst the get the booze in them in the pub.

     

    All very well you might think ?…..but I can vividly remember sitting in that car, melting in the hot August sun, with my dads instructions, ” Don’t leave the motor Jamesy” !

     

    After 2.00pm, my dad and his mates piling into this black Ford Consul, stinking of booze, and singing The Celtic songs FINALLY on our way to see The Celts…..Wonderful….Magical !

    Frank McGarvey,presumably. Wi Liverpool.

     

     

    The only other option I can think of is Bobby Lennox if Houston Hurricanes won. Which I doubt.

     

     

    Btw,Bobby is still highly thought of over there. I wouldn’t quite say he achieved LEGEND status at two clubs,likesay Dzieckanowski,Glavin,Collins,Evans,Murdoch,Gemmell et al,but his legacy seems to live on in their reincarnated colours.

    Any other HOOOOOOOPY HEROES who are legends somewhere else after leaving us? I can think of a few,including probably the best of all.
