Quantcast

Is it 1 or 12 in a row tomorrow?

1011

So what’s this, one in a row?  It’s been almost four years since that night in Dundee but when the questions concerning ineligible players are eventually answered, who knows, it could be 12 in a row or more.  We’ll find out soon enough.

The margin of supremacy Celtic have this season means that when the inevitable comes, whether it is two weeks or more after the earliest date the league could be won, the celebrations will not be as acute as they were in 2008 or even in 2001, when we finally knew our long period underfoot was finished, however, this will be recorded as one of the most important season’s in our history.

The methods which were used to combat Celtic’s re-emergence under Martin O’Neill and then Gordon Strachan have been laid bare.  The “crash and burn” predictions that so many of us spent years talking about, while Celtic ‘lost’ trophies but paid their bills have come true.

Tomorrow will be a special day.  Enjoy it.

    Link doesn’t seem to work:

     

     

     

    “The issue of sectarianism and its effects on the general populace are never far from bubbling away at the surface in the main thoroughfare of everyday Scottish life. Politics, law, religion and football remain four strands of the country’s unique culture and history that divide opinion and provoke debate like nothing else out there. In some people’s minds, they remain inextricably intertwined.

     

     

    These are certainly topics best avoided at your average dinner party in Scotland’s Central Belt, especially when the drinks are flowing. When the drink is in, the wit is out. Over the past few days, the wit has been out during sobriety. In deepest Lanarkshire, these appear to be sobering times for all those who run in the name of the Scottish National Party.

     

     

    The curious case of Lyall Duff, not Duffer, has been something akin to sticking the ball in your own net during a game of political football. For those unaware of this tale of woe, Duff is a prospective SNP council candidate for the wonderfully titled Murdostoun ward of North Lanarkshire council. He has nothing to do with Duff and Phelps, the frazzled administrators frantically trying to find a buyer for Rangers FC and their unpaid debt mountain of millions. The bold Duff has rightly provoked some local outrage after describing two Catholic midwives who objected to helping with abortions on the NHS as “money-grabbing old witches”.

     

     

    As far as we know it, Duff was not slurping Buckfast tonic wine when he made his feelings known. Duff was suspended by the SNP for his outburst pending further disciplinary measures within the party. These comments are especially untimely coming at moments when Scotland’s First Minister and party leader Alex Salmond is trying to shove through the idea of an independent Scotland, a prosperous place free from the religious prejudice of yesteryear. At such times, it is easy to despair.

     

     

    Somewhat astonishingly, Duff was not immediately disowned or expelled by the SNP for his views. Without condemnation from Salmond, there remains suspicion that the SNP view such figures as fit for political life, perhaps even wishing to endorse such bigots. It is fairly obvious, but can you imagine the outcry there would justifiably be if the midwifes were Jewish or Muslim? For some reason, such rabid attacks on Catholicism remain fair game in Scotland.

     

     

    Against such a backdrop, Salmond may be wiser to avoid getting involved in football – that other sticking point of Scottish life – with Rangers apparently owing anywhere between £50-£90 million to HM Revenue and Customs. There are surely enough intelligent folk involved to get the club back on its feet despite the unpaid tax.

     

     

    For every Rangers fan fretting over how their club can rise from the abyss of administration, there are others out there who want natural justice to be done in relation to money owed to the public purse.

     

     

    The Glasgow club could be found guilty of tax evasion, bringing the game of football into disrepute and signing players on illegal contracts to win trophies amid a few of the other lovelies that have come to the fore since the Scottish champions sunk into administration in February.

     

     

    The situation at Rangers is a rotten burgh, shaky ground that could yet turn into sinking sand for the sitting PM of a country simply because it is so visible.

     

     

    The SNP should be commended for trying to tackle head on the issue of sectarian behaviour in football and the hate crimes that out themselves all too often in Scotland, but Duff’s continued attachment to the SNP tends to undermine such a policy.

     

     

    Trying to help out Rangers by asking HMRC to go easy on them because of their vast support within Scotland would undermine the law of the land and the natural order of life to pay tax. How could Salmond justify an independent Scotland complete with its own tax-raising powers if there is going to be one rule for one, and one rule for another? Do celebrity tax dodgers escape Scot-free under Salmond’s version of home rule?

     

     

    Salmond has already stuck his foot into choppy waters when he came up with his ill-conceived “Celtic can’t prosper unless Rangers are there” line in an interview with David Frost back in February. It was a comment that attracted derision from Celtic, who accused him of exploiting the subject for political reasons.

     

     

    Salmond apparently spoke to HMRC about the issue of Rangers in January and what was needed to secure a settlement for the club. It has been claimed that the Scottish Government’s stance on the matter would be at odds with those of the British Government. The whole mess shrouding Rangers is giving off a stench that could yet strike at the heart of Holyrood. The First Minister has a duty to remain whiter than white.

     

     

    It is is difficult to recall Alex Salmond being spotted among the various constituencies when Motherwell, Dundee, Livingston and/or Gretna were in administration and threatening to unravel at a less rapid rate than Rangers.

     

     

    There are obviously political points to be garnered by showing a sympathetic ear to the plight of Rangers, but Salmond risks alienating voters, many of them tax-paying, non-football supporters, who assisted in handing his party a majority in the Scottish Parliament.

     

     

    The Catholic Church in Scotland feels the SNP risk a backlash at the ballot box in North Lanarkshire for the bold Duff’s opinion of a couple of midwives. There are dangers that Salmond will sample a similar effect at an independence referendum if his footprints are found in and around the rather murky goings on at Rangers.”

  20. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Morning bhoys,when the huns won at Killie last year,did the DJ play any of the vermin’s favourite choons after the game?

  21. Anyone looking for a decent weeks holiday i’d recommend Aqaba in Jordan, The views from Aqaba Gulf at the end of the Red Sea towards Israel & Egypt are stunning, Only 2k away from the stretch of Hotels on the bay. The town is all duty free so great bargains. It’s only an hour from Petra. They are spending Billions on new resorts, Also Israel & Jordan are soon to announce a huge project that will see the Red Sea join the Dead Sea as it is dropping 1.2m per year so a good time to go before the madness starts. Its Perfect for a 4 day Petra trip.

  22. Munchies Bar in Bugibba (Malta)……………………..here we come.

     

     

    Bring it home Bhoys.

  23. Seven competitive games left this season, five different kick off times, and not one at 3.00. And they wonder why attendances are falling.

  24. Good morning all

     

     

    It’s a bright sunny morning in the west of Ireland looking over the mighty river shannon.

     

     

    Let’s make it a CHAMPIONS day

  25. Morning all! Couldn’t get a ticket for Kilmarnock despite our best efforts so will be watching at home with Mrs RobinBhoy prior to getting the train to Glasgow for a long since prearranged day out with the lads which happily coincides with today’s championship party!

     

     

    Get it done Bhoys and then we can party in the Drum and Monkey!

     

     

    Hail Hail!

     

     

    RobinBhoy

  26. Larsson and McStay on

    No ticket for me today so it’s ESPN I’m afraid.

     

     

    Confident the bhoys will secure the championship today !

     

     

    Any one want a bet on how many sentences into a post match interview with Lenny before they mention tainted title ?

  27. Well that’s ma pal’s computer fixed. Thank god we didn’t go to the pub and then get back and open up bottle of red wine and then another and another…..that would have been daft.

     

     

    Thanks to Allah (got to spread the gratitude around) I can stay in my bed all day and be grateful to Shiva that there is nothing important going on today……..

     

     

    Whit? A title winning game……………….naw? ok.

     

     

    Right down Sharkeys as soon as the polis have gone.

     

     

    So as I was crossin the blue bridge last night, I was assailed by a bunch of eejits, early twenties, male., female and indeterminate wae hurons (the term mohican is a misnomer as anyone who ever watched Davy Crockett will know)

     

     

    They surrounded me, eckied to the eyeballs and screamed that they were going to kill me.

     

     

    I can report that the wan behind the lead aff (always go for the egger on) can swim although his hair is a feckin mess.

     

     

    Right I’ll be back with more words of wisdom as soon as I find my pacemaker.

     

     

    Hail hail

     

     

    Estadio

  28. stuck at home today, Mrs working.

     

     

    dalrling daughter sick last night and now doesnt want to go to her grans to let me get out for the day.

     

     

    so its stay at home and countdown the hours till we bring the championship home bhoys home.

     

     

    just saw two hoopsters in the Bishopton Co-Op on their way to the game, so so jealous. The 18000 tims who make it there enjoy every minute of it, support our bhoys over the line, party hard.

     

     

    So today its CQN, texts, and the tv.

     

     

    And a listen to Harper and the Bhoys to pass the next few hours –
