Nothing will change in Scotland


When the texts began to fly in about the penalty at Ibrox last night I had no appetite to watch the incident.  I am 54 years old and have seen it all before.  These things do not enrage me the way they once did, it only serves as a reminder of our position in this land.  Get angry, if that’s your thing, but do not kid yourself, nothing will change until we escape the Shoddy Sanctum of Scotland.  Still, we are a well run professional operation and our peers are clowns, so we enjoy frequent upsides.

Celtic were sensational at Easter Road.  The speed the ball was passed between our front four made them unliveable.  It was reminiscent of the destruction of Dundee and the League Cup game against Hearts earlier this season.

Tom Rogic’s frame is not that of a classic dribbler, but he is so fleet of foot and mind that he slipped through defenders as though they were statues.  He found willing runners in Kyogo, Mikey Johnston and Jota.  All Hibs could do is kick and stamp, to the injury of Tom, Kyogo and Callum McGregor.  Hopefully all three are fit for Saturday.  A more protective referee would have helped, by I refer you to the earlier Shoddy Sanctum.

For all the delightful passing, Hibs scored and broke through twice more.  Joe Hart was there to keep the game comfortable; such a change from last season’s debacles.

Some context: we started October six points adrift, without an away in the league win since February and with visits to Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibs pending.  Despite everything, we have closed that gap to two points.  You really must believe us, we’re going to win the league!

Scott Brown, ha!  How many times has he owned Ibrox?  Still doing it, the only surprise was he didn’t have shades on when he headed that goal.

    With our Directors and Sponsors feart of the Rangers you can see why we lie down to them



    AN TEARMANN @ 11:37 AM,



    Yes,he’s a NED, interestingly though, if you think our Accountant is CFO and our stand in CEO is company secretary, you can see Celtic don’t actually have any operational or football executives.



    Whose zoomin’ who;)

    “Whether he would have been safe giving a proper reflection of events is another matter altogether”




    There was absolutely no need to mention those events. They had nothing to do with Walter Smith. The question is, why choose to mention them?

    Why a politician? Labour, Tory, SNP or otherwise?




    Because the frequency and abusiveness of the attacks on Wilson and the demands that he be replaced are because of his political views and his criticisms of the cult.



    But it’s telling that none of them can suggest a replacement from the ranks of their own representatives.

    Think you are way off the mark there.



    So, the only reason Celtic supporters are criticising this guy for his inaccurate comments about “Rangers” is because he was a Labour politician?



    I reckon you are being very disrespectful to the vast majority of critics on here who are having their say due to his lickspittle attitude towards the dead team and not due to any political allegiance he has.

    The thing about the huns in his obit for Walter Smith was the version of history that Celtic have bought into.



    Oh that’s alright then.

    In the mid 90s My then girlfriends non-football supporting Uncle, and also non-religious , confirmed that the linesman at his Erskine golf club was in fact the Rangers linesman at the game when Jorge Cadete’s wonderful and legitimate goal was ruled offside. It was a clear and blatantly corrupt decision, but that trustworthy source confirmed how sickened he was to hear said linesman boasting about deliberately ruling Cadete’s goal off-side despite knowing it was a legitimate goal. That was a huge derby and in fact essentially killed off out title hopes. It has always stayed with me
