First G.o.D. reaches age of majority

Walking to the ground yesterday my brother and I were explaining to the younger generation how special these moments were, in the context of some of years we’ve lived through. Our decade in the wilderness ended 18 years ago, but that’s our 12th title in that period. We’ve turned what looked and felt like a never ending period of subjugation into a complete domination.

As that league win in 1998 reaches the age of majority, it is indisputably a Generation of Domination. None of this came as a surprise, in fact, it was inevitable.

You win or lose individual leagues and trophies often on the bounce of a ball, but the structural forces behind football shift slowly. The path we were on when Fergus left us in 1999 led to what was to come. A policy of paying your bills and keeping debt within reach was going to lose the odd title here or there, but we were always going to win the long game against a competitor who got a little carried away.

The only question now, is how many generations will it last? Or perhaps more tellingly, will it ever end?  Don’t count on it.

    I view Rogic as a far more combative player than Bitton, Rogic does get in about the opposition and makes heafty tackles, rarely shirks a challenge.

  3. Feel sorry for Izzy, KT has been brillant but felt izzy still should have got some game time.

     

     

    And like others left midfield would have been worth a go.

     

     

    He would have given more than most in the semi final . We could have done with that.

    So it was imposed on the people who lived there?

     

     

     

    Is that what you’re saying?

     

     

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

     

     

    No , Ernie .

     

    This is what I`m saying :

     

     

    A wee fact for the anti – Brit brigade and it`s distortions .

     

     

     

    Israel was formed as the result of a vote in the U.N.

     

     

     

    U.K. abstained.

     

     

     

    Stalin and U.S. voted in favour.

     

     

     

    Inconvenient fact , but true.

    One of the biggest mistakes made by the management team was fitting the square pegs in round holes, how many were played out of position wide left when we had these two naturals.

    “Another myopic blunder by RD was to exclude the Honduran completely from the day KT won the left back spot.”

     

     

    Bsr,

     

     

    Does myopic mean ‘not really true’ in this instance? ;)

    The British empire with the Balfour deceleration in 1917 committed to a Jewish homeland, in 1926 that deceleration was enacted under Mandatory Palestine when the British empire imposed the “Land of Israel” on the Palestinian’s, know your history, ignore propaganda and do some reading.

     

    These are easily verifiable facts.

     

    During the Second World War Jew in transit fleeing the Nazi’s refused asylum to many so called western countries including the UK and US, after the war they still refused asylum, Israel was their solution.

  9. Bitton?

     

    Some think he is excellent.

     

    I think he is terrible and the largest contributor to this seasons problem.

     

    Comparison’s to Murdoch and Connolly?

     

    Only similarity is they all wore Celtic jerseys.

     

    Nir’s was a shrunken version.

     

    Another said similarity to Rogic?They both have similar build but only one creates.
