No rest period for Emilio will be welcomed


I know I’m not the only one with a pavlovian dislike of hearing Celtic players mentioned in international match reports in June.  Preseason training is only four weeks away, quickly followed by the Champions League qualifying round, so these weeks should be for rest and recuperation.  The one exception to the rule, this summer, is Emilio Izaguirre, who is set to play two World Cup qualifiers for Honduras over the next two weeks.

Emilio missed most of last season through injury and then sat out much of the remaining part of the campaign due to the impressive form of Charlie Mulgrew.  He is the one player in the squad who benefit from competitive football to restore his edge, and confidence.

    Not doing ernie’s bidding, buthis point was that there’s nine ministers forming a ministerial team, Salmond, Sturgeon, Swinney, MacAskill, Hyslop, Neil, Crawford, Locchead and Russell. There are others such as the one pointed out earlier, your’s and the one I know which ernie would bellieve are not front-line minsters.

    Frank Mullholland not you….

  5. Some techno savant with a stunted neocortex on Hun Media has punched all the data into the infinite wisdom of the big orange supercomputer and concluded the SFA will: “no matter what or how my money is on they will drop the embargo and retain the fine, everyone happy.”



    I’m sure that decision will please the rest of Scottish football. What is it like to live in a universe of such certainty? They’re lack of empathy concern and self awareness never fails to astound.

  6. Did I hear it right: that Junior Legned has demanded to know the names of the ‘investors’ behind the Green bid?



    Shurely shome mishtake …

    It’s a long story but I’ve been told from a mint condition source that Alan Thompson is no longer with Celtic



    From Matt

    Silly’s ……. Are you being political, or are you a bhun, as per your moniker …?

    The ‘Alan Thompson no longer with Celtic’ story is growing legs… Matt McGlone now tweeting he has it from a ‘mint source…’

  11. Green has a follow-up statement:



    If you punish the football club, myself and people I steadfastly refuse to name will not be happy and will withdraw our bid. When I say ‘withdraw’, my colleagues aren’t being named, so I’m not sure they can ‘withdraw’ from something having not really properly entered it, but you know what I mean. We are still saying we are going to put up money until such time as we cannot. Like Mr Kennedy and Mr Murray, we are waiting on someone, dear Lord anyone, to pull the plug, and place this sorry, pathetic, lame company into liquidation so that we can pick over the carcass. At that moment, we will ride back into town as heroes. Now can someone kill the club off, then we (and I mean the people I won’t name) will be interested? In the meantime, put up with our ramblings while we play for time. More nonsense from me soon.

  12. Villa with Lambo or Bolton for Thommo. Steve Clarke i would be over the moon as replacement if true.

  14. Charles Green statement for Dummies;



    “We must be allowed to continue signing players we can’t pay for, to go with all the other players we haven’t paid for.



    If you don’t allow us to sign players we can’t, won’t pay for, we’ll ask the Judge again”



    * Please step in FIFA*

  15. El Diego, knows.


    Apparently, Thommo has left. Nobody knows !!.



    Just guessing but if he has aspirations about being own man then he might end up Bolton as he is a former player and fans favourite.



    But Lambert just at Villa and he is a former player to there as well.

  16. •-:¦:-•** -:¦:- sparkleghirl :¦:-.•**• -:¦:-• on

    Thompson – he wouldn’t be going to Villa with Lambert would he?

  17. Magnificentseven on

    I think the rumours are more along the lines of being sacked rather than going to another job!!

  18. rileyskeepingthefaith on

    Thommo is defo away never saw that coming just hope its for all the right reasons and doesn’t cause unrest




  19. I would never comment on Internet Bampottery, such as Hunskelper Thommo’s departure.



    I’ll wait till it’s confirmed by a reputable source like Sky News.

    ”I see u have been spouting your SNP are anti Catholic nonsense and how there are no Catholics in the Cabinet.


    Two words “Frank Mulholland ” lord advocate appointed by Salmond. To appoint a Catholic ask top law officer for Scotland doesn’t appear anti Catholic to me.”





    I suggested that the nat sock puppets, smarting from not having taken Glasgow as they boasted they would, rather than coming on Celtic forums trying to blame their failure on the OO, would be better employed asking why Salmond has never had a Catholic in his cabinet or shadow cabinet.



    Maybe you could tell us the answer.



    And Frank Mullholland is not a member of the cabinet.

    ‘its to do with promising this and that…’



    Have a look at Jackie Burns st SLC


    Larkhall is his constituency


    Look at what he has allowed !.




  23. Any you Bhoys advise the best place in or around Glasgow to get an iPhone 3GS unlocked?
