Perfect Paisley


Players are not machines.  They cannot go into every game with the same energy or motivation.  You will remember the only time Celtic beat reigning European champions, our win over Milan in 2007, was followed by a scare against Gretna, which required two goals in the final 4 minutes to recuse the points.  This is not a criticism, they are human and react accordingly.

In this respect, visiting St Mirren on Sunday is probably a good thing.  Returning to the scene of our only domestic defeat this season should draw enough response from the tank to ensure we are not caught cold.  Sometimes you are better off with a taxing game than facing relegation strugglers at home.

St Mirren are also in the comfort zone.  They are fighting for a top six finish, which would be a ‘nice to have’, but is far removed from the fight-for-their-income consequences at the foot of the table.  They also don’t have a new manager to provide a dead cat bounce.  In the belief that Celtic play better against better opponents, a visit to Paisley is perfect.

    Five cannibals get appointed as programmers in an IT company.



    During the welcoming ceremony the boss says:



    “You’re all part of our team now.



    You can earn good money here, and you can go to the company canteen for something to eat.



    So don’t trouble the other employees”.



    The cannibals promise not to trouble the other employees.



    Four weeks later the boss returns and says: “You’re all working very hard, and I’m very satisfied with all of you.



    One of our cleaners has disappeared however.



    Do any of you know what happened to her?”



    The cannibals disavow all knowledge of the missing cleaner.



    After the boss has left, the leader of the cannibals says to the others:



    “Which of you idiots ate the cleaner?”



    One of the cannibals raises his hand hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals says:



    “You FOOL! – For four weeks we’ve been eating team leaders, managers, and project managers and no-one has noticed anything, and now YOU have to go and eat the cleaner!”




    Pretty sure I got it from Not The View back in the day.









    Nout wrang with calling it Mordor.









    Nout wrang with calling it BigotDome.









    Nout wrang with calling it Debt Mountain.









    Nout wrang with calling it Toilet Bowl or Victorian Lavvy







    BELMONTBRIAN re: flies



    Enjoy tomorrow! Jealous.

  3. Belmont Brian with jokes like that earlier I may be a tad late….about 4 weeks to be precise.😉



    D :)

  4. B2B



    I’ve been a manager, prog mgr etc



    I didn’t realise the danger i was in when working late!



    I agree that the cleaner in every company is the most useful, efficient and under rated

  5. I don’t think bravado from hun players is bad. We do have some close games and with a bit of luck they could have got extra time last week



    My midwife mate delivered his child just before the 4-0 and said he was sound

    Hello again all you young rebels.



    Friday morning and a very warm weekend ahead here on


    the rebel peninsula.


    Don’t think it’ll be anywhere near the temperature the Shipbank


    shipwrecks will create at their soirée lol 🥵


    See Lungestrum mouthing off to the media now, got to wonder


    how a supposed hard man, with no football skills whatever, gets


    air time, young Alistair sorted him last game, me being an oldie


    I wonder what kind of state Davey Hay would have left him in.

  7. Melbourne Mick on




    And of course with a bit of luck Celtic could have


    won 6-1

  8. Couple of late comments about the sabbath, first was as soon as the whistle went Ange walked over to shake bealezebub’s hand, never looked at him, no condolences either and just walked on, no love lost there by the looks of it.



    Second wtf was that all about the egotit lecturing his breests in the middle of the park, what an eejit.

  9. Moderator1888 on




    have been looking for days for Johnston’s tackle that put lundstram out that game



    Anyone got it?

  10. Melbourne



    Were you at the game caller??



    Probably right but i was nervous until the last 10👍

  11. Melbourne Mick on




    And you’re probably right as well, I’m always nervous against


    that mob, mainly due to the mibs.

    The Hull manager did that years ago; also had a headset.



    Yer man off Soccer Saturday took the piss and he descended the ladder rapidly



    Same with the English manager and the coffee



    All spin from a ‘consultant’



    I think the new Utd boss was on a course and will fail again



    Yer man at Everton is a ‘course’ guy too

  13. Melbourne Mick on

    Right bhoys off down to our soccer parks now.


    Got two parks to line, before I start thinking about rid biddy time.


    I’ve got one of those wee three wheeler lining machines, and I’ve


    attached four poles at the sides, with the sunshade on the top.


    A bit like one of those Chinese rickshaws, thought about starting


    a wee business taking people up and down to the shops.


    Think I’d be run off my feet ?

  14. I don’t think Beale has a presence or is particularly commanding. We can be very confident of a treble if we can get past the next couple of weeks. Tynecastle will be huge game.

  15. The best hun players last week were Tavpen, Goldson, Lundstrom, Morelos



    I was so happy Soldier Boy didn’t get on. My pet hate

  16. Based on Del Boy garbling



    Morelos sell



    Barisic release



    Kamara – sell



    Kent – sell



    McGregor – release



    Tillmsn- home






    Jack / sold



    Sakala / gone



    A bare bones like Ange had after the Lennon internal destruction

    Dont give the press that look in here a story mate



    GOna delete that on that basis

  18. Day 2





    Much to the distaste of the Screws we ended the no-wash protest this morning. We moved to ‘B’ wing, which was allegedly clean.



    We have shown considerable tolerance today. Men are being searched coming back from the toilet. At one point men were waiting three hours to get out to the toilet, and only four or five got washed, which typifies the eagerness (sic) of the Screws to have us off the no-wash. There is a lot of petty vindictiveness from them.



    I saw the doctor and I’m 64 kgs. I’ve no problems.



    The priest, Fr John Murphy, was in tonight. We had a short talk. I heard that my mother spoke at a parade in Belfast yesterday and that Marcella cried. It gave me heart. I’m not worried about the numbers of the crowds. I was very annoyed last night when I heard Bishop Daly’s statement (issued on Sunday, condemning the hunger-strike). Again he is applying his double set of moral standards. He seems to forget that the people who murdered those innocent Irishmen on Derry’s Bloody Sunday are still as ever among us; and he knows perhaps better than anyone what has and is taking place in H-Block.



    He understands why men are being tortured here — the reason for criminalisation. What makes it so disgusting, I believe, is that he agrees with that underlying reason. Only once has he spoken out, of the beatings and inhumanity that are commonplace in H-Block.



    I once read an editorial, in late ’78, following the then Archbishop O Fiaich’s ‘sewer pipes of Calcutta’ statement. It said it was to the everlasting shame of the Irish people that the archbishop had to, and I paraphrase, stir the moral conscience of the people on the H-Block issue. A lot of time has passed since then, a lot of torture, in fact the following year was the worst we experienced.



    Now I wonder who will stir the Cardinal’s moral conscience…



    Bear witness to both right and wrong, stand up and speak out. But don’t we know that what has to be said is ‘political’, and it’s not that these people don’t want to become involved in politics, it’s simply that their politics are different, that is, British.



    My dear friend Tomboy’s father died today. I was terribly annoyed, and it has upset me.



    I received several notes from my family and friends. I have only read the one from my mother — it was what I needed. She has regained her fighting spirit — I am happy now.



    My old friend Seanna (Walsh, a fellow blanket man) has also written.



    I have an idea for a poem, perhaps tomorrow I will try to put it together.



    Every time I feel down I think of Armagh, and James Connolly. They can never take those thoughts away from me.

  19. Been on a few hun sites,


    Bad team selection…


    Injured players….


    Bad recruitment….


    Players had an off day…


    Weeping and wailing, no light at the end in sight.


    No ideas how to sort it.



    I left some advice


    ‘We need to bring back EBTs’
