Pity help Kilmarnock


Some of us will have revenge in mind tonight for the defeats Kilmarnock inflicted on Celtic in October and at Hampden in last season’s League Cup final.  Others may be motivated by Kenny Sheils frank views on Celtic’s performance at Hampden, but the dressing room will have more aspirational matters to address.

Players will have little regard for the Kilmarnock manager or previous season’s form, they will all be fighting for a place in forthcoming the Champions League games against Juventus.  After Sunday’s performance no one will be sure of their starting place tonight, even those considered un-droppable by some will have been on the receiving end of frank comments from the manager.

Pity help Kilmarnock.

    The share price hovering between 80 and 90 pence was kept at that price for a reason,


    but it did not work, they have saw through it and still not put the money in that they pledged



    reason for the silence

  2. pfayr-Russell puts a shift in for sure,not sure if we will give guys a chance to redeem themselves or sub/dropped.

  3. Celtic, Celtic thats the team for me,


    Celtic, Celtic on to victory,


    They’re the finest team in Scotland, I’m sure you will agree,


    We’ll never give up till we’ve won the cup and the scottish football league.



    They come from bonnie Scotland, they come from county Cork,


    They come from dear old Donegal and even from New York,


    From every street in Glasgow they proudly make their way,


    To a place called dear old paradise and this is what they say.

    There’s Clark, McNeill and Kennedy the best there;s ever been,


    Jim Johnstone, Murdoch, Chalmers, John Divers and John Hughes,


    And sixty thousand Celtic fans who proudly shout the news.

  4. MountainBhoy – exactly. They may be about to offload their stock, at a healthy profit, but that’s a completely different thing. Frankly it’s what I expected to happen.

  5. They may not have bought the shares at all Mountain Bhoy, but “Pledged” to invest the funds, this pledge could have been contingent on a number of issues and perhaps these guys are not happy that all their requirements have been met and are reneging on their pledges. Thats the way I’m reading it, Phil must have something, he wouldn’t just make it up.

  6. Corkcelt.



    As you say Phil usually hits the mark.


    I’m sure James traynor let slip “ten million” was the true figure made,at thems meeting with invited groups last week.


    Why he did surprised me, for how much i dislike him he is no fool.hh

  7. ArranmoreBhoyLXV11 on

    Grow up Murdo!



    SevcoTV &RamanMcKay….no kidding wheeled out Mc Swiggan,Dodds,and some Sevco kid injured. Footage of Sevco goals…



    NOTHING about the Hoops…love them ignoring us…

  8. Tonight’s XI:



    Zaluska; Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Izaguirre; Brown, Wanyama, Mulgrew, Commons; Samaras, Hooper






    Thomson, Lassad, Ledley, Rogne, Kayal, Watt, Stokes

  9. Dead and loving it – they can’t do that. X million shares were entered onto the stock market based on the investor uptake (at discounted prices) and the public sale. They can’t just reduce the amount if shares in issue because an investor pulled out. Unless the club is somehow able to buy them back etc offer price. It’s far more likely that the far eastern investors are going to sell up in bulk, taking profit, while causing a drop in share price.

    How about Pete Townshend’s plectrum from when they played “Auchinleck” ?

  11. Always remember going into the CSC Greenock, just opposite Tescos, while the wife was shopping, just as they opened on a Saturday morning. Dozens of El D were already poured awaiting the thirsty punters on the counter!

  12. Wine?



    I can still remember my old Italian granny – on my mother’s side – sitting down at the kitchen table after dinner with her rosary beads and pile of prayer books, and demolishing a litre decanter of (homemade) red wine while she prayed.



    Never saw her drunk.



    She passed away at the age of 92.



    The first time Mrs Tally came over to Italy with me after we got married – she was 6 months pregnant at the time – my granny gave my mother and aunt – 2 of her daughters – hell for trying to get her to drink just water at meal times due to her delicate condition.



    She said to them – “Ffs give the poor lassie some wine – never did me any harm. I had you 2 as well as your sister!”



    Classic – we still laugh about it to this day!



    Oh how we laugh!



    Cheers granny!




  13. Went with the Pinot first,…Should’ve got more !



    This wine drinking is a complicated affair….

  14. Just arrived at Celtic park .. After a 240 mile drive through the rain.



    Tired … But no where i would rather be than watching my first love

  15. Big Georges Fan Club on



    Tickets – check


    Weans – check


    Niece – check


    Scarf – check


    Waterproofs – double-check



    Here we go again, we’re on the road again…






  16. Ten men



    At least he’s honest.



    Scottish Football — Riddled with hunnery, from the bottom to the top.

  17. Getting better,



    now we have,



    Pete’s guitar string plus his plectrum to strum it with,


    Cozy’s drum stick,


    Christy’s plectrum, (need another string )


    and Al’s towel to mop the brow’s after the gig.



    Must be more famed band gear out there,


    at this rate we could have the band together for…Wembeleee…Wembelee.

  18. After tonight we have only 4 more Home SPL games with 7 Away games before the split, Don’t know whether that is a good or a bad thing.

    ‘jake the snake ‏@celticservant


    So after the DR running with 12-12-10-10 SFL Chief Executive David Longmuir gives exclusive interview to Sevco TV supporting this. Mmm.’




    Fewer SFL clubs would benefit from that arrangement than from the 12-12-18 proposal (because 12 12 18 gives the third division clubs a second bite at the hun pound) so I can’t see it being voted through.

  20. Like many I bemoan the globalisation of wine. When IT was a lad Greenock and the Port had eld Glasgow Lanliq and Four Crown Govan Vordo and Paisley Old England. The dafties in Lanarkshire had Buckfast–fgs my old mammy used to have a quarter bottle of that on occasion-a lassies drink

  21. Tallybhoy



    I’ve ayeways said there’s a lot to be learned from the Italian culture. The communal family ethos, where poly generation gatherings are the norm at the dinner table, wherein comparison to an all to common theme in bruteland (sp) sees the elderly as a burden to society.

  22. In Johnstone if you wanted a glass of El D you asked the barman for a glass of Diesel Fuel, after a few of those you were well tanked up and God help anybody who glanced in your direction;)

  23. The Moon Bhoys on

    izzy – the more you drink the less complicated it becomes…more so if you mix white with red..

  24. izzy



    It was my old granny who introduced me to wine at the dinner table when I was 5!



    A small drop in a glass, topped up with water.



    Cannae get enough of the stuff now! Wine that is – not water!



    Seriously ‘tho – I believe that is one of the reasons why, for years, Italy had a much lower level of alcohol abuse than the UK.



    However, there is now a much higher level of alcohol abuse here especially among the young.




  25. Just dropped in to say……





    The Battered Bunnet



    18:20 on 30 January, 2013



    Oh Dear…



    Murdo giving it petted lip on Shortbread.




    That widny be the same petted lip that he borrowed


    from oor Neil ?










  26. saltires en sevilla on

    CP tonite



    Pitch looks perfect



    Light wind swirling slightly



    Cauld but dry ..so far :-)



    C’mon the Celts




  27. The Battered Bunnet on

    Leds and Lassad seem to be the fall guys for the result on Sunday.



    To be fair, Leds was Lillian, but Lassad set up the equaliser despite playing in a team of haddies, before getting hooked for Commons, who did hee-haw himself.



    Didn’t see anything to indicate that Chas merits a place in midfield. Perhaps Lenny’s doing something along the lines of 3 at the back – Lustig, Wilson, Mulgrew – in which case expect some hairy moments at our back post.



    Will it be 3-5-2 or 3-4-3?



    All to be revealed shortly.

  28. Just home from work and straight oot to Parkheid.



    I prefer supporting the Celtic to supporting the Record and Murdo- shame be upon him.



    I feel conditions will dictate a poor game tonight and a low scoring win for the tic.
