Ronny will value having game on Friday night


Yesterday I caught myself moaning about potentially winning the league without playing a game (epitome of first world problems).  How quickly we forget the pain of the 90s.  Let’s bring the title home as soon as possible, no matter where we are or what we’re doing.  There could be people doing the Ronny Roar in shopping streets across Scotland on Saturday.

The one place Ronny will not be doing the Ronny Roar is out shopping, though.  This time of year managers’ weekends are fully booked: one day for the game, one day scouting at another game.  With a game on the Friday night Ronny will be able to take in games on Saturday and Sunday.  Scouting opportunities before the end of the season are limited, so he’ll value the extra day.

A year ago Hibs asked to allow their season ticket holders into a play-off game for free – there’s your rule.  The opportunity to deny another club the same has gone.  Faux indignation about not even asking permission doesn’t register with me.

Club sponsor Magners have offered us a pair of premium tickets to the Jock Stein Stand for Friday’s game.  All you need to do to win is send me an email with the name of the team we play in the SUBJECT line of your email.  Competition closes at 9pm tonight (Wednesday), so not a lot of time.

If you would like to do something enormously constructive while entering the competition, you could always donate £1 (or more if you like) to our Mary’s Meals school kitchen appeal, which you can do right here.  Many thanks.

    Manager of the year must be Swally McCoist.


    Unbeaten in 2015. Picking up the biggest managerial wage in Scotland and not working a day in 2015.


    Surely that deserves some kind of award!







    Alistair will collect his rewards….


    At the Chelsea Flower Show.

    There’s pineapple and grape flavours as well, if you prefer:)

    As someone who works to promote respiratory health I feel I must make public my opposition to the use of guillotines due to their pernicious effects upon people’s ability to breathe.

    What If God Smoked Cannabis



    If God had long hair


    And a goatee,


    And if his eyes looked pretty glazed…


    If He looked spaced out


    Would you buy his story?


    Would you believe he had an eye infection?



    And yeah, yeah, God he looks baked


    And yeah, yeah, God He smells good,


    And yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah…



    What if God smoked cannabis?


    Hit the bung like some of us?


    Drove a tie-dyed microbus,


    And he subscribed to Rolling Stone?



    When God made this place,


    In the beginning,


    Did He plant any seeds?


    Or did he put them there for Adam and Eve,


    So they’d be hungry for the apple that the snake


    Was always offering?



    And yeah, yeah… God rolls great,


    And yeah, yeah, God he smells good,


    And yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah…



    What if God smoked cannabis?


    Do you suppose he had a buzz


    When he made the platypus


    When he created earth, our home?


    Does He like Pearl Jam or the Stones?


    And do you think He rolls His own


    Up there in heaven on the throne?



    And when the saints go marching home,


    Maybe he sits and smoke alone

    That’s a virtual guillotine and now a virtual bong that ive have brought on to the blog.


    Its a hard choice for some, but I know what one id choose:)





  6. the green man






    I’ll sip my wee virtual Guinness!

    likin’ wee Taylor Swift is the new sign of the ole midlife crisis.



    Once again ole Donty has his finger pressed firmly on the zeitgeist.

  8. Watched the Ronny video, couple of questions ?



    Do you think PL saw this before appointing him ? I suggest Yes.



    What other managers do you think could deliver something like this.



    Brendan Rodgers, Mourinho, big Sam ? Not many in my view, certainly not Super or Walter.

    Taking everything into account, should the MOTY be Ronny Deila . Derek McInnes, John Hughes or Robbie Neilson?


    I would discount Neilson because it is more difficult (for me) to judge someone in a lower division .


    Yogi`s team are quite a way behind in the League and they really should not be in the Cup Final.So, he is out as well.


    Ronny, who I believe will go on to be something special, maybe very special, possibly had to do better in Europe to be declared the winner.


    So,almost reluctantly, I go for McInnes. His provincial team have taken more points from the others than we have. For that, I would say he deserves it.




  10. The Green Man on




    And why not indeed….but don’t be saying anything about virtual strippers…shhhhh.





  11. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Talking of guillotines. I always talk to my plants …off with their heads




  12. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    Jungle Jim- I think McInnes is overrated.



    His record, especially in the Cups, is pretty poor.



    One League Cup, won on pens; is not a great return.



    I would go for young J.Fowler at Queens, especially when they keep the ole Hillbillies in their place.

  13. The Green Man on

    Awe Naw



    Ive often done the same…but sometimes they talk back, that’s the worry:)





  14. Drugs are a scourge.



    They destroy individuals



    They damage families.



    I used to work PT with these folk






    who do great peer ministry in which non judgement is the key. Have a look at what they do.



    It is an observable irony of life however that the worst in us brings out the best in us through others.

  15. I think PL saw this yes.

    I think auld dontbrattbakkinanger might be going that way with his Taylor Swift musings!

    The Ronny video is good. A repeat performance in the CL qaulies and the BUDDING Barry Normabs on here will be looking to cultivate.




  18. What is the Stars



    16:44 on



    well done..if the 2nd one comes in too ..could be a good night ! tks again !

  19. Drugs ………………………..well they’re for mugs.



    Drink……………………….if you upset the company you are in, or, become an eedjit then best to leave the drink alone also.

  20. What is the Stars on



    Drugs can be scourge no doubt


    So is poverty and lack of hope


    Remove those and people are less inclined to take solace in drugs


    Executing drug mules is not the solution

  21. Alasdair MacLean on

    Tried a hash joint couple of nights in a row in a coffee shop recently – instant coughing fit each drag. I smoke wee cigars with a drink and they don’t have that effect. Gave up!

  22. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on





    telll that to Glaxco, Bayer, Astrazeneca etc.





  23. On a non related matter.



    Anyone who has read Soccernomics cannot but help observe how true their predictions have been.



    Basically that clubs in capitals with big populations will dominate over “port” clubs.



    I’m thinking Chelsea and Arsenal and relegation of Man Utd and Liverpool to also rans.

  24. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Ronny will need to weed out the wheat from the chaff befire the THeCL campaiign.




  25. WITS



    I never said it was.



    I think a belief in ones intrinsic worth as a human being is a good starting point.



    But in my day it wasn’t taught.



    Experience can teach it bit that experience can be painful.
