Scottish Cup has historic importance this season


After three weeks catching sunrays and getting some recuperation in, Celtic are back in action tomorrow, in the Scottish Cup against Brechin City. The Angus club are enduring a torrid season, bottom of the Championship with four points from 21 games, so I would not expect them to venture too far from their only penalty area tomorrow.

While Brendan Rodgers will take the game seriously, in the bigger picture, it offers a good opportunity to get the legs stretched before the challenges over the next four weeks in the League and Europa League.

With the League Cup already secured and a commanding grip put on the seventh successive league title, Celtic are five cup ties away from an unprecedented second consecutive treble. There will be more financially rewarding games ahead, but our Scottish Cup ties have an historic importance.

    So, on the road again at last. Good luck to the Celts today. Let the Murphy’s do it better,

  2. Looking forward to seeing our new signing Lewis Morgan playing today this will be


    the first time I’ve seen him



    Thanks Jobo for the heads up on the game at 12.15 BBC1





    Didn’t “say” you did mate.



    But it’s funny when you see something like “was just in the supermarket when the Record/Sun etc fell down on my napper and happened to read to read 2 columns”, sorta thing.

  4. Ryan Christie starting for Dons, Lewis Morgan starting for Saints with Mark Hill on the bench. Should be a good game to take me up to leaving for CP time.


    Charley Musonda on bench for Chelsea over on Sky at 12.30





    Yeah, the game ………….



    Yeah, it’s not just the media tat are suffering from that Pandora’s box opening.



    The replacement of people with things is great. It’s just no one has figure what to do with all the people being “freed up”.



    Some narrow minded, tory imbecile had some suggestions last week, mind.



    Being serious for the moment though that conundrum of people being idle hasn’t been squared and ultimately, it’s population increase that drives us forward ?

  6. A 2nd goal for Aberdeen and it’s Ryan Christie. 2 nil after 17 minutes would suggest the tie’s over.





    I think there is only one option available,and that is to appropriately tax ALL companies,in the jurisdiction that the profits are made,and offer a universal basic income,which might allow a modicum of entrepreneurship.



    Or we can all watch daytime TV and stay away from the razor blades.



    Metropolis is nearly 100 years old. Just saying.


    Watching the Aberdeen v St Mirren game,decent match. Pish poor pitch though.



    Willie Miller is doing the half-time analysis. I swear if you chucked a joint in his mouth,he’d be DELANEYSDUNKY.



    All this time we’ve been wondering where he was,he was turning a coin wi the MSM,the swine(!)

    A Primark spokesperson said: “The cap features the popular and widely-used contraction of the term of endearment, ‘honey’.



     “Any offence caused by this is wholly unintentional and we apologise.



    Should have read.



    Any offense caused by this is wholly unintentional so we have nothing to apologise for.



    So just eff off. Which we do apologise for in advance as the intent is to upset and annoy you.





    It would be more appropriate if Primark grew a pair,told them to take a hike.



    It might be more helpful if they just stopped crying cos everyone hates them.



    You know,I thought they didn’t care about that. So they tell us.



    Seems they’re just a buncha wee sensitive souls after all.

    One of my pet hates too – public figures rushing to apologise for someone else taking offence at nothing – grow a backbone FFS!!!



    Had an discussion in work during the week about the storm of indignation caused by an H&M advert featuring a wee boy modelling a cute “Cheeky Wee Monkey” sweatshirt. Some high-profile muppets screaming “deliberate racisim” because the wee boy was black. Wee boy’s mum (Swedish I think) thought, correctly, that the reaction was idiotic.



    H&M did the usual corporate protection move of issuing a grovelling apology. All that does is give the impression that it is an admission of fault, and gives the easily-offended some form self-confirmation that they were correct to be offended in the first place!!
