Scottish Cup has historic importance this season

458

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.

    Fur awe the religiously inclined, the Rainjurs should be forgiven for all of thur sins.

     

    ——–

     

    I always thought that forgiveness comes after an admission of wrongdoing. It’s a learning process.

     

     

    How can you forgive a nasty serial bully who at last gets a battering in the playground, then re-emerges as another nasty serial bully, pretending that the battering didn’t happen?

     

    ———————————–

     

    Correct and I blogged on that very matter a few years ago.

    Forgiveness is not something confined to religion, it is an attitude of mind that can lead to a healthy life.

     

     

    The University of Madison in the USA houses The International; Forgiveness Institute who look at e subject of forgiveness from a wider view than religion involving academic and scientific rigour.

    The best advocate of forgiveness as a healthy attitude I’ve seen is a line that says

     

     

    Not forgiving or holding a resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

    Celtic to score 7 tomorrow … just remember where you heard it first

     

     

    (and I’m not saying that just because I picked them with a joker in GFS)…

     

     

    where’s that GFTB? bet he didn’t pick them with a joker! he probably picked Sevco again.

    I ate a banana last season. It was Marvelous. Had another this season. Liked the same to me but it wasn’t as good.

     

     

    MWD

     

    =========================

     

    The CBN analysis didn’t cover bananas but it does point to factors that reduced the level of performance.

     

     

    I know that when I watched matches this season and we assed up early good chances I groaned inwardly because had they gone in our performance rises and the other teams drops.

     

     

    Even in the Hibs game at Easter Road when we were two up, we missed at least one great chance to kill the game off and I reckon a major factor has been neither Dembele or Griffiths has been the same threat and both have carried injuries.

     

     

    Its all part of the game in which you are only ever as good as your last one.

  5. MIKE IN TORONTO, gerry,s hiding cos he promised me some bridies and pies from christies in coatbridge, still waitng. lol.

    Roy at 9.42 , really good picture with most of the players wearing Stylo Matchmaker boots . A brand which seem to disappear without trace the following season.

    Did you read my post about the 5 Way Agreement in previous blog?

     

     

    I was looking over the rules at the time last night and am more convinced than ever that had the SFA/SPL not agreed to transfer Rangers SFA Membership with its full voting rights to Sevco then Green would have walked away.

     

     

    Too many clubs were afraid of the consequences and a mix of that and the funny old hand shake brigade allowed that transfer to happen rather then apply the rules normally applied to a new club admitted to the SFL.

     

     

    The other interesting thing is the definition of Rangers FC in the Agreement. It was there I reckon the owner separate from the club concept came in and I reckon Doncaster, familiar with the arrangements in England he used to justify the separation of club and owner (holding company) to Winning Captain, was responsible.

     

     

    You will find the definition in The Birth of a Monster Myth blog at

     

     

    https://www.celticquicknews.co.uk/neil-doncaster-and-the-birth-of-monster-myths/

     

     

    If you have time to read the blog and extracts from the 5 Way with your legal background it would be good to hear your feedback.
