Not interested in your “Where’s the fixtures” patter


I appreciate there are people wanting to book flights and other travel arrangements, but I’m not interested in your “Where’s the fixtures?” patter.  No one else cares or is concentrating on who Celtic will play when they win the league, others have thoughts only for the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Get Sunday wrong and it will be our last meaningful game of the season.  Whether the police are stuck in the last century or not makes no difference, but take our eye off the ball as we prepare for the weekend and things go wrong.  Look at St Mirren for an example of a club and support which spent energy planning a title party but lost to the worst Dundee United team in over 40 years.

Sunday is the only fixture we have. Literally. Keep our heads in the game.

    As you may know, my old Golden that just passed away over the holidays was named Derry …



    so, when people asked, I would say her name, and they would often say ‘Dairy?! you mean, like milk?’



    and I would say ‘no … Derry, as in Ireland’.. to which many would say ‘oh, you mean, Londonderry’….



    I tried to teach Derry to bark and look ferocious when someone said Londonderry … but she wasn’t having any of it … she was too good natured.. For fun, I tried to teach her to attack Liam in Toronto, but she just ran up to him, lay down, and rolled over so he could scratch her tummy!

    If these masonic Scottish fitba officials were as honest and faithful as Frankie and Benny , the world would be a better place.

  3. In the 9th minute of 3 minutes of injury time, ref blows the whistle.


    Madrid through.

  4. Madrid lucky tonight. Defensively very bad without Ramos.


    No-one expected the Spanish indecision.

  5. I don’t think that was a penalty for Madrid, but if it’s my team I would probably be screaming for it.



    D. :)

    Dogs are like people…born with a nature , good or bad. Derry sounds like he was a lovely natured dog.

  8. Softish Pen for Real but I’d want it. One of those weird games where you want both teams to lose! Enjoyable drama though.

  9. 50 shades of green on

    Juve fans get it right up yea , ya sword welding bunch of bassas.




    Ramos decision last week to get himself booked at 3 nil, therefore available for the semi-final nearly came back to haunt him, jammy git.

    hope this works this is 8 month old benny.hh.

  11. BigPacky, I’m reading but I’ve been loaded with ManFlu the past 3 days. Its a struggle at times.

  12. Great penalty from Ronaldo but you can see why there are no English referees at this years world cup.

  13. Delaneys Dunky on




    Ditto. Liverpool v Roma in Kiev would be a great final. My money would be on the Scousers.

  14. Looks like Buffon got red carded for trying to pull card from ref.


    Ref turned immediately while pulling card out when Buffon grabbed arm from behind.


    Now if he was a hun that card would be rescinded as ref did not feel threatened.


    Crazy ending to an enjoyable game.

  15. Typical UEFA fix, you didn’t seriously believe that Both Barca and Madrid would go out.


    Having said that, stuff Rube, cheats then cheats now, what goes around comes around.


    Yes, I was in the Del Alphi in 2003 and I’m still bitter:-)

    Art of War,

    im heading out shortly and will respond at some stage .


    its gutterkid1 dot hotmail dot com partner!


    Hail Hail

  17. I never want any English team to win in Europe.


    Can’t stand their triumphalist boasting.


    It’s funny though when you point out to them how few Englishmen actually play in their teams.
