Rest Brown, Tierney and others for Tynecastle, Ben Nevis Huddle

471

Sunday’s game at Tynecastle is a bit of a dead rubber for both Hearts and Celtic.  The home team cannot finish higher or lower than sixth place, while the Champions will be rested after a few days in Tenerife.

I know you want to rattle a few goals past Hearts; make up for the defeat there earlier in the season and, well, because they are Hearts, but this should not be a priority.  We are two weeks away from a Scottish Cup Final and the opportunity to become the first team in Scottish history to win back-to-back trebles.

Neither Motherwell nor St Johnstone have much to play for in their game this weekend, but you can be sure Motherwell will have an eye on the Cup Final.  They will rest players and allow strains to recover.  We must do the same.

I would rest the captain, Ajer, Boyata, Tierney and Forrest.  Set the priority right and be ready for Hampden.

Celtic FC Foundation, Ben Nevis Huddle

After a three year gap, the Celtic fans will be back on Ben Nevis on mass on 30 June, to raise funds for the Foundation.  This is a rare opportunity for those of us unfamiliar with mountains to ascend Britain’s tallest in the company of supportive Celtic fans.

Participants are asked to raise (only) £130 for the Foundation.  It is a great opportunity, see here for more details and to sign up this weekend.

  5. Stevie G. has been telt that he’s going to £49 Rangers FC, a club without regulations, on or off the pitch, what’s not to like ?

     

    £49 Rangers FC have been haunted by aspects that shame the club.

     

    Is there a club without shameful aspects ?

     

    The DUP announced the other week that, they’d received the first tranche of of their £1and a half billion bung from the Tory government. Within days, £49 Rangers FC let it oot that they were going for Stevie G.

     

    Ye see, the £49 Rangers FC hierarchy must see things like this…..

     

    £49 Rangers FC are non regulatory.

     

    £49 Rangers FC will be backed to the hilt by, MIBs, SFA, SPFL, SMSM, Dallas at Uefa etc.

     

    £49 Rangers FC know that, their only opponents in any sphere, should be Celtic PLC and their 53,000 season ticket holders.

     

    But, when £49 Rangers FC have reached any seemingly tricky obstacles, well, £49 Rangers FC have swatted these obstacles away, or, brassed them out, the 5-0 drubbing at the Quintessential Supreme Court, hasn’t resulted in one glove being landed on, £49 Rangers FC, all of this is amazing, if not intimidating, when you consider that, £49 Rangers FC’s supposedly greatest rivals are, custodialy governed by a PLC board packed to the brim with ££££billionaires, and are supported by 53,000 season ticket holders, but, here lies the rub, how potent are £49 Rangers FC’s supposedly greatest rivals, when the 53,000 season ticket holders and, the PLC board of ££££billionaires, don’t have one pair of balls between them ?

     

    One more wee thing…….

     

    Sumdy said earlier that, Brendan knows Stevie G. inside out.

     

    So, what does Stevie G. know about Brendan, that makes Stevie G. fancy his chances, against Brendan the pub team skelper ?

    Re the Wolf Tones:

     

    I’d forgotten about that ?

     

    Here’s a wee story for you.

     

    A wee lass who used to work for me and had leanings towards the Darkside, her son is a sevco fan( but more down to his stepgrampa), will be there tonight. She has turned into a right wee reb, loves Ireland and the story of James Connolly and basically all things Irish. She is a big pal of mine and has been before and after I sold my business. Whether this was down to my influence is somewhat debatable ???????

    All if’s and but’s. Even if somebody was daft enough to throw £50 million at sevco all they would be doing is upgrading their squad, infrastructure up to the standard to Celtic’s.

     

     

    A brand new team, who have never played together , that takes a season or 2 for things to click..

     

     

    For them to lay a glove on Champions league football, If we fail.. they have no chance of reaching the riches of the group stages , they have no co efficient points..its all pie in the sky

    And Celtic would, hopefully, up the ante, open the bulging biscuit tin and spend just enough to keep ahead of der Hun thus forcing them, Sevco, to spend more . A bit like what cowboy Ronnie R did to the Soviet Union and we all know how that ended.
