Quantcast

Extending Kenny deal should be high on agenda

287

The largest part of our rebuilding exercise in the summer will be along the back line.  The departures of Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Elhamed leave a requirement for two right backs, while Diego Laxalt’s loan will not be renewed.

Christopher Jullien will miss the start of the campaign and with no signs of Kristoffer Ajer extending his deal beyond next year I expect him to leave in the summer.  Shane Duffy will return to Brighton, leaving Stephen Welsh as the only recognised central defender ready to start the campaign.

We need two right backs and one left back, the latter to compete with Greg Taylor, and at least two central defenders.  Recruiting all these players in time for the qualifiers is a huge undertaking.  We could do worse than to put extending the deal for Jonjoe Kenny high on the new manager’s agenda.

    Good Morning. I have asked DD about BRRB and he is going to check. Jobo has had a Bosman to SC. Hope you are well.

    Toooooo weeee for a Celtic fullback imo.

    Below that old Celtic line up, there was this post from Jim Spence:

     

     

     

     

     

     

    “There’s no reason we shouldn’t run our own affairs in Scotland, I’m in favour. But spare me the guff that we’re better, different, more socially just etc. It’s guff. An Indy Scotland has the capacity to be every bit as venal&vexatious as any other country as we now plainly see.”

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I like Jim`s style…..which means he will never make it in Scottish journalism.

    I doubt the nats can afford to be honest about life in an independent Scotland, not if they need to win a referendum to get it.

     

     

    Mind you, having watched some of the Salmond inquiry, I’m not sure they could be honest even if they tried.

    Fr Murphy was in tonight. I have not felt too bad today, although I notice the energy beginning to drain. But it is quite early yet. I got showered today and had my hair cut, which made me feel quite good. Ten years younger, the boys joke, but I feel twenty years older, the inevitable consequence of eight years of torture and imprisonment.

     

    I am abreast with the news and view with utter disgust and anger the Reagan/Thatcher plot. It seems quite clear that they intend to counteract Russian expansionism with imperialist expansionism, to protect their vital interests they say.

     

     

    What they mean is they covet other nations’ resources. They want to steal what they haven’t got and to do so (as the future may unfortunately prove) they will murder oppressed people and deny them their sovereignty as nations. No doubt Mr Haughey will toe the line in Ireland when Thatcher so demands.

     

     

    Noticed a rarity today: jam with the tea, and by the way the Screws are glaring at the food. They seem more in need of it than my good self.

    Thank you, just logged on, good way to start my morning.

     

    Until we meet again…

     

    Keep the Faith!

     

    Hail Hail!

    Lanarkshire Labour really sorted out institutional sectarianism for our fathers and grandfathers. Thank God for them.

    Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012.

     

     

    Any SNP politician ever criticised it, or apologised for it, or admitted it was wrong?

     

     

    If not, why not?

     

     

    What should that tell you about them, other than that they are a cult?

    Paul67 has already told us that he is outwith our reach.

     

    When Neil Lennon got the job, is was him or Alex Neil.

     

    If that is the case , god help us who we are going to end up with.

    That’s right.

     

     

    Scottish institutions reflected Scottish attitudes.

     

     

    The decline in economic discrimination in employment and housing came about largely due to the increasing influence of UK wide (and multinational) institutions, where anti Catholic discrimination was either non existent or insignificant.

    Think Paul said we’re not looking at anyone out of a job – strange ?

     

    Anyway if he was any good he’d have been snapped up by now.🤔

    Hot Smoked @ 8.30…I’m sorry to say it’s definitely not me nor my more famous namesake.

     

    The Wee Barra was my first hero along with Willie Fernie and Charlie Tully. Any one of the three could have been declared my ‘favourite’ but for a singular moment at my very first game versus Stirling Albion (I believe). When I close my eyes I see red shirts with white sleeves. I was six, my dad was thirty. As the teams came out, a wee auld man wi’ a bunnet said to my dad, “Sit the wee barra up here son.” He made a space to allow my dad to sit me on the crush barrier. Throughout the game I heard constant shouts of ‘the wee barra’. My dad told me it was Bobby Collins they were referring to. I was proud to have been called ‘the wee barra’ by the wee auld man ( he probably was about 40 😊). Anyway, on the way home my dad bought the pink Times and on page two there was a photo of Bobby Collins which I cut out and taped on to my bedroom wall. It was still there along with hundreds of other Celtic photos when I finally left home for London in 1968. My mum used to tell me how sad she felt when the room was re-papered…
