Hapoel threat has merit, fabrications don’t make SFA report

790

Hapoel Beer-Shiva delivered Olympiakos first defeat in a Champions League qualifying match in six years. The Greeks have competed in the group stage every season since, holding their own throughout the period, so getting knocked out by Hapoel was the equivalent of losing a Scottish Cup semi-final to a lower-league club.

Hapoel are not better than Olympiakos, not nearly so, but they were good enough to progress when they got the breaks. Anyone who thinks we’ll easy past them into the group stage is being ridiculously complacent.

I’m trying to avoid the nonsense coming out of Ibrox while we have more important things going on, but good grief! Please, please, have them follow through on the nonsense of ditching their legally contracted Puma strips to wear something else.

That stadium seems to be a beacon attracting stupid people doing stupid things.

You’ll note the INDEPENDENT SFA report on crowd at the Scottish Cup final recorded no assaults whatsoever on Newco players. This clearly caused some dissonance at the media organisations who reported utter fabrications after the game.

Never mind, Newco is in the same good hands which were on the tiller when their disastrous EBT plan was enacted, and the players who benefited from EBTs are front and central of Newco media coverage.

If you can’t see how this story ends, you’re not looking.

  1. BOBBY MURDOCH'S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS on

    The Burnley example is true.

     

     

    But sometimes it doesn’t work.

     

     

    Blackpool made a fortune from their foray to EPL.

     

     

    They kick off today along with Portsmouth in the old fourth division.

    Just being jocular.

     

     

    However , I remember hearing that a particular B.B.C. football presenter earns more from the B.B.C. than the S.F.A. does for Scottish football rights.

     

     

    Seriously , though , don`t want to introduce politics.

     

    At this euphoric moment.

     

    :-)

  3. Have the winners of the Championship EVER before unfurled their Division flag on Opening Day?

  4. That awkward moment when Spew Keevins realises that his comments carry about as much weight as Alan Carr’s handbag.

  5. Dropping two points at Home on the first day of the season is simply a poor result. I would recommend restraint until a few games have passed before we celebrate their currently presumed inadequacies .

  6. BMCUW, yes I know where you’re coming from regarding the Travellers. I’m now in the Chamberlain at Aldgate waiting for my mate’s lad. Not getting used to the price of a swally doon here. £5.20 for a ok pint of Guinness in the hotel compared to £2.50 for an excellent pint of Guinness in the Courtyard Bar in Glagow city centre.

    Big Amo said he’d like to see an older midfielder in who can read the game…

     

    Whose he got in mind, Bobby Charlton?

  9. Just turned over to SSN.

     

     

    It’s like an episode of ‘Eastenders’ with Tony Cottee, Paul Walsh and Iain Dowie on the panel!

     

     

    Subtitles required when Dowie speaks.

     

     

    HH!!

    Agree , when I even think about gloating something usually jumps out to bite me

     

     

    although I reserve the right to do so in May………..and secretly hoping for a good win at Tynecastle for the Hoops

  11. IMO the zombies will be an amusing distraction to our league campaign. As Broonie said it’s the Sheep and the Jambo’s who will provide the competition. He was being a tad generous when he said they’d be fourth. They’ve just lost their goal scorer.

  12. CultsBhoy - sees right through Lawwell and the Board on

    Decent point for the new mob…

     

    The fans will never forget their clubs first game and point at the top level…

  13. Sipsini

     

     

    Old Spew needs to give up the game.

     

     

    When everything he says has less credibility than the Labour Party. Then it’s time to chuck it

  14. We all agree that they are a new club but our response to their dropping points at Home suggest we dislike this new club just as much as we did the old one !

     

    Cheerio for now,

     

    JJ

  15. Snake Plissken on

    According to Twitter Celtic are in advanced talks with Spurs for Michel Vorm – a goalkeeper.

  16. I enjoyed that game.

     

    I also think the new club, apart from being mince, no longer have the power of the establishment club. it will be hard for us to get used to, but we are now the peepil with influence and apart from a few old hacks missing their lamb, they hold no power or sway!

     

    no last minute pen. Hamilton didn’t go down to ten. the ref even let Accies finish their attack well after the added time before blowing the whistle. Jim Craig said 1967 lead to a community feeling equal. we are more than equal now!!

     

    in my opinion we should stop bestowing power and influence on this upstart 4 year old club that they do not have. They have a record in their short life which is poorer than Grena’s at the same stage! now can’t wait for the hearts game. feel it will be a belter.

    Heard about 5mins of it when the huns were getting beat.

     

     

    It sounded like the commentator had just been informed of a family bereavement or been given a terminal diagnosis.

     

     

    Fair cheered me up.

    Burnley will earn more TV money this season than all 42 SCO clubs combined over the next 4 seasons.

    That really is hideous.

     

     

     

    And what the SNP should run with.

    Yep the SNP should tell people not to subscribe to Sky.

     

     

    I can just see that happening.

    Barton named man of the match !!

    Spot o Ernie.

     

    And huns certainly are entertaining.

  23. We should be really worried after Sevco’s dismal display today. It may well prompt the Glib and shameless one to release tens of millions of pounds (as promised) so Warbo can buy the likes of RVP. Me I’m now of shitting meself with worry. Just how will we compete when the glib one’s millions have enabled Sevo to field a team of galaticos?

     

     

    Now where did I leave me pills?

  24. Today’s ref will probably be demoted for huns dropping points

     

    Shocking performance only to only book five and not award a penalty.

  25. Funny to see Warburton before the game and Barton after the game being interviewed in front of Puma and Sports Direct logos.

     

     

    Also, McKay had to have his ripped shirt replaced by one with no number and no name. Are they really that hard-up? And isn’t it against the rules to play with no number?
