Quantcast

If you should meet Luis Enrique in Glasgow this week

488

Should Lionel Messi’s illness, which kept him out of Saturday’s clash with Malaga, prevent him boarding a plane to Glasgow tomorrow, Brendan Rodgers will take some grain of comfort.  The Argentine was the principle actor in the destruction of Celtic at the Camp Nou two months ago.
Since then Celtic have more than earned the Champions League credit which has come their way.  Meritocratic draws against Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach have given the club two points more than some observers predicted for them when the group stage was drawn in August.

Without Messi, Barcelona remain a potent force, but arguably the greatest player to ever kick a ball changes the dimension of the challenge enormously.  While it’s likely a few days rest would be enough for Messi to push himself, if necessary, manager Luis Enrique may be inclined not to take chances with his star asset ahead of a huge week for the Catalans.

After Celtic they are away to Real Sociedad, who are only four points behind in La Liga, while the following weekend they have the chance to close the four point gap at the top when Real Madrid visit.

So if you meet Luis around town this week, tell him he’d be better to rest Leo for the important La Liga clashes.

  1. Usually I would disagree Paul; wanting to see the best players is what being in the Champion’s League is all about and all that. But Messi’s been here 3 times before, give the boy a rest!

  2. Think he is more worried Leos illness might be infectious.Vomiting bug.Hopefully he takes no chances.As I said last night,Pique was at the tennis watching big Andy,so I have no idea what that means.Hopefully he is out as well.Iniesta doubtful.Maybe the CL Gods are smiling on us for once.They are usually sleeping when the draws are made.

    Aye, it’s a natural progression – I already have to make my own square sausage, may as well make my own tattie scones.

    Ratio of 500g plain flour to 100g mashed spuds. A ACGRknob of butter, salt and pepper to season. Roll to about 5mm thick and cut (use a wee plate to shape and you can then cut into 4). Fry in a really hot pan and enjoy!

    Seems the Royal Navy has fewer than 20 capital ships nowadays,mainly aging destroyers and frigates.

     

     

     

    Must be great being a hun at this time of year. 54 titles,Britannia Rules the Waves,and Santa due down the chimney any time soon.

     

     

     

    Believe!!!!

  7. In all seriousness Crystal Palace are Jordan Mutch’s 7th club (including 3 loans) and he’s only 24.

     

    Could be a case of he’s done too mutch, much too young.

  8. TURKEYBHOY, scotch pies????

     

    I can turn my hand to Lorne and Tattie scone but would love a crack at a Scotch Pie. Don’t want to turn CQN into Masterchef but you have to tell me how!

    Fair point dude – what Albert doesn’t know about a loaf isn’t worth knowing. Could be the next huns manager.

     

     

    No a bad goalie either…apparently…

    Oh dear. Mods gonna be busy for the next few hours…

    He certainly a good player and I’m happy to see us linked with him. He’s a bit like Rogic.

     

     

    That said, we need reinforcements in central midfield. Somebody in the mould of Wanyama or even Joe Ledley would do.

    It’s been a bit strange for Mutch.

     

     

    He played well for Cardiff City despite the fact they got relegated. That’s why QPR decided to buy him.

     

     

    He didn’t really get many games at QPR and was relegated again. Palace signed him but he doesn’t seem a good fit there.

    Scotch Pie – that’s a slightly longer recipe and is quite tricky esp. the pastry and then tying the pies to keep the shape. If you want a recipe, email me on vfr@girfuy.co.uk and I’ll send it to you.

    El sitio- web de UEFA ha declarado que Leicester tiene más títulos en la Liga de Campeones que Real Madrid!!”

     

     

    – “Qué es un Leicester?”

     

     

    – ” Son Campeones de Inglaterra y participan por primera vez en el torneo!”

    Absurdism is right up his street! :-)

  17. Had a wee swatch at Hun Media there.As usual deluded,but great fun.A lot of Bear on Bear as well.Always love to read their posts when talking about the unfortunates employed there to play for them.We have Fods in goal,then we have Tavs,Our captain,Waggers,Bazza,Josh,Holty,Crooksy,they know this guys name but not what he looks like.Before we had Barts and Krancs,but they have dropped of the radar .Even their management,for want of a better word,its Sir Davy and Warbs,sometimes Mr Warburton.

     

    Really sycophantic,knee bending,twats.But for me,great fun,even though they are very sweary peepul.

  18. Brendan Rodgers seems to specialise in improving players who have unfulfilled potential.

     

     

    Sturridge and Coutinho are the obvious examples of players who had got lost at big clubs and were deemed surplus to requirements.

    Cold water pastry for the Scotch Pies as you know,and I got a brilliant wee gizmo here for making the casings.No idea what the Turks make with it,but great for the old pies.The Nutmeg makes them taste like the real thing.
