Sky line up Celtic’s title party


Sky announced three consecutive Celtic games will be broadcast live across March and April, one of which is almost certain to be a league-winning occasion. Although Aberdeen could go second by a point if they win their game in hand over Newco, I’m not convinced they have the staying power. McInnes has struggled to replicate the form of last season, perhaps as a consequence of so many of his first team squad out of contract in the summer and looking around for deals.

The first Sky game on the schedule released this morning is the visit of Newco to Celtic Park on Sunday 12 March. Newco have 10 games after this, so should Aberdeen’s challenge drop off, Celtic’s lead would need to be 28 points heading into that game to setup a title decider (loose sense of the word).

We currently have a 19 point lead with a game in hand (against St Johnstone later this month). Win all seven of our league games before 12 March, and we would need Newco to drop six points to allow two Glasgow teams to come together to celebrate the champions on what would be a memorable day for everyone in the city.

Newco have visits to Motherwell, Hearts, Dundee and Inverness before then, as well as home games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. Earlier this season they won at Dundee and Inverness, lost at Hearts and drew each of their homes games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. They have yet to visit Fir Park on league duty this season.

Although they capitulated last time out against Celtic, Newco played better in December than earlier in the season, so there’s a chance they’ll pick up more at home to Accies, Inverness and County. Their cup and league double-header against Motherwell this month will either take some pressure off, or set them up for a Celtic Park party.

If we don’t win the title that day the roadshow rolls onto Dens Park and then Tynecastle. Newco play a day before us on both occasions, so there’s a chance the title will be won/lost at Ibrox before Celtic play.

    Those jobs. .why did they leave America.


    Here is a radical thesis.


    Wealthy capitalists realised that instead of paying a unionised workforce in Happyville Oklahoma 10 dollars an hour they could have the same work carried out in China or any where 3rd worldy for 1 dollar a day. Yahoo profits up.


    So what trump should do is what dear old Adolf did. ..ban the unions. ..then all those patriotic capitalist guys will be glad to pay an American a dollar a day. ..actually a Mexican will probably do it for 50 cent. .hold that wall Donald

  2. Tim Malone Will Tell on

    Hillary Clinton is like your Ian Bankier – establishment figure, understated, not trusted by many and lacking charisma.



    Donald Trump is Charlie ‘Big Hauns’ Green – stick on an Orange tap, shout ‘we arra American peepul’ and idiots looking for any bit of hope will buy it.



    Similar to Charlie Green – just because Donald has the brass neck to deny and deflect anything and everything – it doesn’t make it ‘not true’ just because you don’t happen to like the messenger.



    Bernie Saunders is saying that he will support ‘new deal’ type initiatives if it breaks global capitalism. Like me, I think that Bernie will be astounded of forehead if Donald does anything more than mouth a load of bullshit to the masses – just like Charlie Green.

    First part. Absolutely right.


    Dollars at the expense of the American work force .Trump tapped in to the years of seething and justifiable resentment felt by the rustbelters in particular.


    Thats precisely why Trump played the patriotic card.


    He couldn`t lose on that score.


    And he won in spite of the colluding media which released a private conversation which had been recorded without his permission and kept in storage till the right moment arrived.


    Hoist with their own self interest petard.

    So, anyone accusing uncritical of trump,


    What was the choice ?


    Clinton supports and is/was financed by the Saudis, aye slag aff the trumtons, easy meat, give us an alternative ya miserable bawbag gobshite wretch. Now yor telling us trump is further right than the Saudis ffs, Copulate right off and don’t dare question my judgment, except you An Teirman, cause we know you don’t have anything constructive to offer except you don’t have a copulating clue about anything. It’s dead easy to destroy good intentions that get hijacked by Tory iligitimates.


    The same meeja murder the truth in every country.

    Mexico is already paying for the wall.


    20 per cent increase in the price of fuel.


    Due to ” external forces. ”


    Riots . Seven dead.

  8. Trump doesn’t like the taste of his own medicine. He consistently smeared Muslims and other ethnic groups because it suited his agenda. Two wrongs don’t make it right but smear has come back around and bit him.

    Hey Grumpy


    Knower of all things



    Do you think your pal Donny Boy is going to alienate the Saudis……


    I dont know being a media dupe but someone with your vast knowledge of current affairs might be able to enlighten me

  10. For me its all about war ,which I am completly against. Obama was led down the war road by the US oligarths and co. The arms industry ,oil barons , bankers and the fanatical warmongers like McCain. People who care nothing for human life whether its in Syria ,Libya, Iraq ,Ukraine, and now Yemen.


    Trump has stated he doesnt want the US wasting its $s and energy on wars of choice. Needless wars.


    Trump has said he wants peace. Its a message that you wont have seen in our press -TV.


    I prefer peace to war .

    Debating our power in modern society?



    You do all realise that we are just a construct in a computer program of inordinate complexity, right? How else could Teresa May and Donald Trump actually be the leaders of major Western Democracies, soon to be joined by Marine Le Penn.



    You are all really just wasting away in a pod of slime, to generate chemical power for machines. The Matrix wasn’t a film. It was a documentary.



    Wake up everybody!




  13. I, for one, am terrified at the prospect of Trump becoming President. How could anyone vote for a racist homophobe who only adopted an anti-abortion stand when it suited him?



    God help us all.

  14. What is the Stars on




    Almost everybody prefers peace to war…except for a small coterie of extremely wealthy people who will make money from it….

    I don’t lump everyone into the same bracket, most people do have a brain and can dissect the right from the wrong, some can’t. some spout the msm pish word for word.


    I am just not buying into the Trump is bad and the Hillary is good crap, cos it aint so, and well you know it.


    The alternative, there wasn’t any.

    I see a punter is suing Coral for £250,000.00


    He placed a 100 at 2500/1 in 2012 on Rangers to be relegated.



    Of course Coral are correctly refusing to pay as Rangers werent relegated.



    Interesting court case when it happens

    Aye it does, a bit like an tearman, your criticism only reflects your sympathies.


    Nothing constructive, betrays you never found a common interest, outside your own family, betray every commonality if it enhances yours above all else, just like the Bush’s and Clinton’s


    In an tearmans case it’s a patriot game but family hypocricy is only allowed if it’s his.


    Hail Hail

    Now we are getting down to the nitty gritty.


    It’s all about choice then, and that choice was between bad and badder, worse and worser.


    A few have voiced that Hillarity was a better choice than Trump, what the ef have they been watching the past eight years FFS ?


    When Obama came to power, I will admit I was taken in by his lies, I honestly believed that he would do his best to stop the wars and the killings, how fecking stupid was I, taken for a mug and a half, when he came to power, the septics were only activly dropping bombs on two sovereign nations, as he leaves they are dropping bombs on seven, yip taken in big time I was.


    So please forgiver me when someone who is running for president vows to start a war with Iran and her oppo states he doesn’t want war I choose the one who states he doesn’t want war, am I to be taken in again, who knows, but as sure as eggs are eggs, I am as a gambler banking on the one who for sure is not hell bent on staring a war.


    The rest is as I said bullshit.



  23. What is the Stars on




    All American presidents bomb someone,its part of the job


    Just like the way they MUST support the death penalty and the right to bear arms



    Trump will be no different …he will send the be responsible for plenty of deaths.





    Nothing constructive, betrays you never found a common interest, outside your own family, betray every commonality if it enhances yours above all else, just like the Bush’s and Clinton’s



    I dont even know what you mean by that….are you drunk

  24. jamesgang on 11th January 2017 8:22 pm






    Sir if I even have to begin to tell you why Trump is unfit to hold any office of consequence then I’m afraid I don’t know where to begin.



    Off to watch Rebellion on Netflix in the hope of finding evidence of beliefs and values that I can identify with.

    Ye might think it is a Voice in the Wilderness.



    Aidybhoy sent me a text saying Man City was a risky choice, he then went into detail…. arrrrgh, I said to him, lets see what happens. He thinks he knows it all. :D



    I’d rather someone came to the anti abortion side late than never at all.


    I’d rather someone opposing using tax dollars to finance Planned Parenthood.


    I’d rather someone who will not prosecute religious orders for refusing to pay for abortions.


    I’d support Trump over anyone who tells me I need to change my beliefs.

  27. Stars


    It will.


    Can I ask you a serious question then.


    Why would you have chosen Hillary over Trump given everything we know, or should know about her ?



  28. THE EXILED TIM on 11TH JANUARY 2017 10:32 PM



    ‘when someone vows to start a war’






    She said she wouldn’t hesitate to go to war with Iran if they acquired nuclear weapons.



    Is that what you are referring to?



    And do you believe everything she says?

  29. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on



    Of course you don’t understand, why would you?


    But you understand every time you open me up to violent retribution, example, who would win a fight between Canamalar and ??????, thenumber of times I’ve witnessed you write that. I no longer care if your a celtic supporter, as far as I’m concerned yer a trump , Obama, Clinton or a bush. A condescending prick that has nothing better to do than promote you lack of hardship or caring as apolitical.

  30. The Presidential race is long over. We all know that Trump won.


    The issues now are solely about him as Hilary is past tense.


    To see the fawning over a self serving misogynist racist prick damned by his own words is a bit hard to take.


    As close as you will ever get to a full blown Hun in the White House and we have Tims thinking this is great
