History beckons against Hearts at home

352

If an invincible season in the league is to be completed, we now know it will happen at Celtic Park on Sunday, 21 May, against Hearts. While getting over the line is always the most difficult part of a challenge, away games at Pittodrie, where we play nearest challengers Aberdeen, on Friday 12 May, and Ibrox, where we play Newco on 29 April, will present the most significant challenges to our attempts to complete the season undefeated.

There is also the non-trivial matter of an away derby match against our oldest Glasgow rivals, Partick Thistle, on 18 May. Thistle are a tidy team, currently on excellent form. This is exactly the kind of game that has a tendency of stopping history in its tracks.  We’ve work to do at Dingwall on Sunday before any of this, of course.

The league split was conceived to accommodate competing needs for more teams in the top flight, but fewer games. This season it has also given us some really attractive looking games after the main issue was settled.

I know one or two who would like future fixtures to be arranged to avoid the title being decided during Lent. I’m not going to say this will be easy to achieve, but it could easily be added to the agenda at next monthly conclave between the SFA, the Scottish Premiership and the Vatican.

We have halfway through our two day raffle for TWO TICKETS to the Scottish Cup semi-final next weekend. Raffle is in aid of Mary’s Meals. To enter, make a minimum £5 donation here, then email me, celticquicknews@gmail.com with the words “Scottish Cup” in the subject line, to confirm your entry.

    With reference to the settlement reached with ex employees Templeton, Shiels etc it is likely to have reached a conclusion because failure to would have put their UEFA licence application at risk.

     

     

     

    Art 50 requires no payments outstanding at 31 March to employees or ex employees in year ending 31 Dec 2016.

     

     

     

    Just saying like.

     

     

     

    The importance of obtaining a UEFA licence is not so much for the income which is 300€ k for first qualifying game (plus gate money) but to sell STs on the basis they will play in Europe this year no matter how short lived.

     

     

     

    The lure of European football and places to visit (cough) might sell an extra 1k STs to a club were every £ or Rand is a prisoner in Sood Efrika.

    G’Day CQN..

     

     

    I Read on the last thread but One I think that TD said his Season Ticket order FormiDabblè just came in Now he mentioned $307 for His Ticket..

     

     

    Is that the Average Price of a SB..?

     

     

    As I’m just off Skype with My Wee Mum who said my Dad was in a Fizzy as His SB for Govan had to be Paid for by Today.. She managed to to it for Him..Now He is a Pensioner and She said it was £470 .. and my Brothers was £680 .. ffs

     

     

    Surely there can’t be that Difference in Season Tickets .. ?

     

     

    Thanks in Advance..

     

     

    Ps.. if that’s what they are Charging and You need it Paid first week in April and their Top Scorer is Tango Miller with 8 Goals this Season they are Dafter than I thought.. Ha

    I know he’s snubbed the order but is there any chance this is just Keith Jackson acting like a wee lassie King’s pumped then never phoned again?

     

     

    Can remember him being very upset that King gave interviews to every media outlet bar him and the rhecord on his last visit.

     

     

    Hope this is just him exagerrating everything in a act of childish bitterness.

    It is clear this toxic individual and excuse of a Chairman has no money for us!

     

     

    He brings nothing to the table except poision and dishonours the great name of this club.

     

     

    His rise to power was nothing more than just another king con and even then he refuses to take responsibility and do the right thing when unmasked.

     

     

    The gullible and the guzzlers again deflect from the truth and facts, loving this convicted conman more than the club.

     

     

    There will be consequences of his actions as he further drags our name through the gutter, but that’s ok, he’s a Rangers man.

     

     

    Let us not live to regret the moment this particular glib and shameless liar walked up our marble staircase.

     

     

     

    The stupidity of a few on this subject is hard to believe,even for them.

  7. My mum,brother and i would like to say thanks for all the kind and moving words written in condolence on the passing of my dad,they provided comfort when we needed it most.That folk who don’t know us took time to offer support was both humbling and helpful to us.

     

    You don’t need to dig deep on here to find humanity and yet again the goodness shone through.This wee blog can be a special place at times.

     

    So,again,i’d just like to say how grateful we were/are for the numerous and often beautiful sentiments posted.All of them one were gratefully received and we genuinely thank each and every one of you.

     

    Be good to each other.

    Default Re: King Forced Into 20p Share Takeover Offer – And Defies Ruling

     

    Anybody with their head screwed on has to back King and the current board for obvious reasons-they’ve put a lot of money into the club and continue to do so.

     

     

    You don’t need to go back far to see who we had before and indeed before that.

     

     

    Running Rangers doesn’t get anyone a free ticket from criticism I’m sure the board know that.

     

     

    I think what is missing and has been missing is a bit more honesty and clarity on the short term situation and long term strategy. If we know we have Bears in charge and we are told the truth then they will get the backing of the majority even if the road ahead is tough.

     

     

    My fear since last November last year is that King et al has lost the balance between keeping a positive outlook and understating the challenge ahead. My personal opinion is there has been a degree of playing to the gallery -to say to the support oh look we agree it’s went wrong but fixing it? Well it won’t take that much. And of course there have been contradictions in statements and actions.

     

     

    I’ve said it before King et al have earned the right to make mistakes and I expect them to make more. However if they underplay the situation ahead punters are going to come after them if the “strategy” doesn’t work out.

     

     

    We need more clarity-starting with this issue.

  11. 5 a side Players Wanted !!

     

     

    As some of you will be aware a few of us from the blog and some from outwith play a weekly 5 a side match. Recently we have lost a few players so we need new players to keep it going. If you, or anyone you know, sons, nephews, friends etc would like to play please get in touch at the email address below. We have a varied age group from teenagers to 50 somethings. So hopefully you would like to join us in our friendly, competitive match and take the opportunity to keep fit and meet new friends. You wouldn’t be expected to play every week, just whenever you can make it. We’ll even accept full time goalkeepers!!

     

     

    We play on a Thursday at 6pm, Supersoccer, Scotland Street, G5 8NB.

    Endless mirth at their sheer stupidity.John James puts another to bed today on his blog.Its astonishing that many of the Munters have no idea about the state they are in.I wonder if Social Services should be called.So many being deprived of their rights by having no inkling whats going on about them.

  16. I see the Leicester fans let the rest of Europe see what Brexit means last night.Hopefully it will show them that seperation from the “Little Englanders”is the best thing that could have happened.Just at a time when Europe was basking in the peace of no Sevco Huns pillaging their cities,their redneck English brethern took up the mantle.Notice the similarities in the “Rule Brittania” mobs.

    So would that also include Warburton and his two colleagues getting an out of court settlement, knowing that it is different circumstances, do you thing sevco can afford to roll the dice on that one?

     

    Or would that case not come into it?

    Takeover Appeals Board say they will take #Rangers chairman Dave King to court after he refused to make offer for rest of club’s shares.

    ==========

     

    Now that is an interesting question and if I were Warburton or his agent I would be writing to UEFA to explain the circumstances of their dismissal or use the threat of doing so to get TRFC to pony up.

     

     

    There is previous on this in 2011 for Bain and McIntyre who were reported as suspended. No questions asked as to reasons and if the justification stood up.

     

     

    It might end up costing more to get a licence than they will earn from it.
