Easy and important acts

620

The events of this week will be scant consolation to the bereaved of Hillsborough, but it is nonetheless important that football paid appropriate respects, as fans and clubs across England did this weekend.

When Celtic offered to host Liverpool for their first game after the tragedy they took a step to demonstrate solidarity with the people of that city.  In presenting a wreath on behalf of the Celtic Movement at Anfield today, Peter Lawwell carried on the spirit of that week.

It’s often the easy acts which are the most important.

Loved the Scottish Cup semi-finals. perfect result-performance combination which allowed Super Salary, Glib and Shameless, Newco and fans of every other club in Scottish football to take something from the first game.

    we are all entitled to an opinion.

     

    kenny could have left us as early as ’71 or ’72.

     

    as a celtic player he was discriminated against by the sfa.

     

    he was hated and despised by rangers supporters.

     

    and yet he chose to stay with us.

     

    valour above and beyond the call of duty.

     

    he is a celtic legend to me.

    Evening folks,

     

     

    Thoroughly enjoying the debate re best Celtic player. Best I have seen in the flesh has got to be Henrik. Just slightly too young to have seen Jinky, but I suspect If I had been old enough it may well have been him.

     

     

    Most influential player and absolute Celtic legend, Danny. At the height of his career was the best in the world at his position. Class player, tremendous Captain, think his finest game for me the the 4 v 2 game to clinch the league against Rangers in 1979. After Johnny Doyle was sent off, he drove the team on to victory. At the end of the game he collapsed in pure joy but also totally exhausted.

     

     

    Have huge admiration for the Maestro, a class act who unfortunately played for the team at a low point in our history. Hugely talented and could have played for any team at any level and not looked out of place.

    Evening all.

     

     

    Looking forward to next CQN mag as Aasmah Mir is a vocal Celticn supporter. It will be interesting to get the perspective of a prominent Asian tim who works for the biased BBC.

     

     

    ……….

     

     

    Good call that.

  5. Kenny May well have been a sevco supporter but the sheer delight on his face when he scored against them was enough to convince me that he developed a deep affection for our club

    You do yourself a disservice.

     

    And i’m sure your good lady would agree.

     

    Your humility says it all.

     

    An absolute gent.

     

    See you at BMCUWPs gathering.

    Did once say in the pub “imagine how bad we would have been if he was not there!”

  8. Kayal – I don’t think he’s up there with the greats but where would you put KC in a list – he offers us something special at a time when we haven’t had a huge amount of greats to say the least.

    I agree – I’m looking forward to reading the Aasmah article

    Four truly unfortunate Celtic players for various reasons.

     

    Joe McBride…great finisher and best out and out No.9 I ever saw at CP. Would have played in Lisbon but for injury. 33 goals before Christmas 66.

     

    George Connelly…in the Beckenbauer mold. Mental health issues.

     

    Brian McLaughlin…bad leg break when just reaching potential. Looked to be at Dalglish level.

     

    Paul McStay…born in the wrong era. Could have played for any top English side of the time.

  13. jackie mac

     

     

    KC is a good domestic player, not good enough to shine at European level. The player he’s probably most similar to is Lubo, but Lubo was a far better player. KC is a better goal scorer though.

    Good point prestonpans. How bad would it have been without him. He carried the team at times, and unfortunately once he was made Captain his game altered at times as he tried to do too much because of the gulf in talent of the players around him. And unfortunately his game suffered as a consequence. However the times when we did play in good teams, Centenary season especially and he had the players around him, his class showed through. Who will ever forget the pass through to Chris Morris to set up the goal for McAvennie, against Rangers (think it was the St Patricks day massacre? game)

     

     

    My god if he had been in MON’s team, with Henrik and Lube, Sutton, Hartson, wow.

    M.E.

     

     

    that bowie tribute was superb last week….from what I can remember….lol.

  17. Dalglish stayed with Celtic for longer than many so called Celtic supporters from birth. He was right to leave. The rot had set in for us at theEC level. Professionally, his medals show he made good career choices. Of course we all wish the Celtic board did more to keep our star players at that time but they didn’t.

     

     

    He cares about money and has a huge ego but wouldn’t we also if we had his talent?

     

     

    I can’t believe some don’t consider him to be a legend.

    Who told ye Bowie trib was superb. You were bouncin off the walls before he came on!

  19. Marrakesh Express,

     

     

    Spot on. Apart from Charlie Gallagher, Joe McBride and George Connolly are my alltime favourite players. I think Joe McBride gave the Lions the confidence to beat anybody. When he went on to the park in that wee golden period, we just knew he would score. If George had been able to deal with his demons, he would have rivalled Beckenbauer. I have no doubts on that score.

     

     

    Wonderful time to be a Celtic supporter. Maybe the best of all times.

    Looks like Rory McIlroy has been in the states too long, his Irish accent is disappearing fast.

     

    He’s nearly as bad as Graham McDowall who sounds as he is from Texas !

     

     

    Still suppose they aren’t as bad as John Barrowman who is ashamed of his Scottish accent unless he is hamming it up with the Krankies ! Och Aye the Noo !

    McBride’s lethal scoring period from Aug-Dec 66 is right up there with Gerd Muller at his best. He didnt play the all round forward game like Henke, but he was equally as good a finisher.

  24. the long wait is over on

    My tuppence worth –

     

     

    The greatest Celt I’ve ever regularly seen is Henrik.

     

     

    Dalglish was my childhood idol and an incredible player. You don’t get to be described by Beckenbauer as the best player in the world at your peak for nothing. Blotted his copy book for me though as a manager.

     

     

    Danny Mcgrain was a world class hard as nails player and a total legend.

     

     

    Paul McStay was class. You could give him the ball anywhere , anytime on the pitch with any number of players around him – and Peter Grant and others often did – and his first touch was so deft he was always in control.

     

     

    Guys older than me , who have seen them all of the above , say Jinky was the greatest of them all and I can’t argue with them.

     

     

    Having said all that , any objective assessment of our greatest ever player has , IMHO, to decide in favour of Jimmy McGrory. His statistics are truly incredible and will never be equalled.

    I reckon Joe McBride was as talented but was about the least egotistical person you’d ever meet.
