Don’t mention the (boardroom) war


With financial projections which provide entertaining reading, Rangers International promoted director, Walter Smith, to the position of chairman.  Smith immediately proclaimed, “Unity among the directors is vital”, although he was not asked about the forthcoming EGM where fellow directors Malcolm Murray and Chris Morgan face dismissal, while a third director, Charles Green, suggested he was going to resign by today, but has not got around to filling out the form yet (does this guy have ‘form’ when it comes to filling Companies House forms?)…..

They don’t do unity very well.

The only show in town is season ticket sales; for all clubs.  Maybe Celtic should appoint Martin O’Neill to the board for a few weeks to allow the newspapers to provide some bluster for those who more convinced by headlines and sound-bites than strategy?  Perhaps not.  Let’s stick to plan.

Lisbon Lion in Ayrshire, send reinforcements!

Willie Wallace will be at Waterstons in Ayr from 1-3pm this afternoon, get along (with camera) if you can.

Tomorrow Willie will be at the Celtic Superstore from 12-2pm before going to the Celtic Shop, Clydebank, from 3.30-5.30pm.  Get out and meet the man.

Great to meet so many people at Waterstons, Stirling, last night. The store sold out of Willie’s autobiography. There was actually a queue of people waiting to enter the store at one point.

Just a few days left on the auction for the signed Messi strip, a magnificent piece of football memorabilia. Keep an eye on it here.

    Gary is a big game goalscorer. I hope he signs on for a few more years, especially as he is going into the prime of his life, playing football wise.



    Celtic have a real chance of holding onto all our best players this Summer, IMO.



    Samaras&Broonie are still the Finest Men, well because they are the elders.



    It is all very good in the hood, the U13s are incredibly special, you just wait to see that crop mature.

  3. Total Stupidity strikes again, have all the finals scribbled down and ticked Chelsea as beating United in the penalty shoot out game. Gawd Almighty whats it between me and bloody Chelsea. Should have united 3/2 and Chelsea 2/1 Aw Well.

  4. Q5 Answers:



    Since the EPL was formed in 1993 – what’s the total number of EPL team of appearances in a CL final?


    • 9 (winners 4 losers 5); Man Utd 2/4, Liverpool 1/2, Chelsea 1/2, Arsenal 0/1.

  5. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Sevco tv with the Walter love in eh bhoys.He’s a lovely man and a thoughtful man, I wonder where this thoughtful man was when Neil Lennon was getting death threats.Yep the clown waited until league was won.


    Post of the day my friend.HH

  6. Doc You should be keeping your head down, over here we Tims pride ourselves in saying we have no interest in EPL, thats why I’m deliberately getting a few wrong. Well thats my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Agreed, Celtic only for me, BUT



    Praecepta, good quiz, well done



    Hail Hail

  8. Rapid finish (while I try to work out scores update).






    How many Championship Teams (total number) have been in the EPL (excluding Cardiff – just promoted). Simple answer – e.g. 10/ 20/ 30/ 40 (these numbers are an example and are not the correct answer – just want a number).

    We have had a very successful season,garnished with a lot of laughs at the expense of


    the baby class.



    Now we are faced with the weight of expectation,particularly in Europe.


    Qualification for the group stages will be a huge challenge.


    Failure to qualify will leave a real void in the season.


    Of course,there`s always Europa.



    Youth developement is crucial to progress.Never mind the Quality Street kids,I remember the Kelly kids,Celtic`s “answer” to the Busby Babes.


    The Kelly kids became the Lions.

  11. confused.com Is it the number of teams in the present Championship, if so I’ll chance 8. However when I see eg 30/40 I’m guessing I’m misunderstanding the question. Jaysus I feel like I’m back in school and I’m really pissing off the teacher.

  12. Doc



    That’s to give me time! :-)



    You’re pals with CRC – does he have the whole family, chalk-boards, post-it notes and a couple of laptops running on a Friday night?



    Am drinking here like a guy on the City News Desk in front of a typewriter (obviously not a MSM sport’s hack). :-)

    You are right on compadre.



    Kojo wants us banking the millions, I want them spent at the grassroots because they will pay off a lot more than paying guys 40000 G a week, if we just have a little patience.



    Nae huns about, so there is nae excuse not to go wholeheartedly down this Ajax route so dear to Tommy Burns Heart.
