Sure things don’t exist in football


St Mirren lost at Tynecastle in November, their fifth consecutive in the league, but since then they have lost only twice: at Celtic Park and last Saturday, when the roof fell in against Ross County.  During that run they recorded good wins against Dundee United and Motherwell.  They sit second bottom of the league but this is an incredibly tight league.  Saints are as close to bottom Dundee as they are to second top Inverness.  In straightforward terms, St Mirren are a form team.

Anyone who believes Celtic are a sure thing better think again.

Remember the days when it would be impossible to get past 8pm and still not know Montrose earlier took a point at Ibrox? Sign of the times it wasn’t really news, I suppose.

  1. If that ‘rant’ from the pie lover is anything like his team talks it’s little wonder his team struggle with the likes of Montrose.



    To sum up he is acknowledging that his crap team are indeed crap and he fully expects United to prove how crap they are next week…I think!

    Does that mean thinks they’re crap and if they get stuffed he won’t be surprised




    Or that they don’t think, therefore they don’t exist………or something.

    People forget the quality of the opposition



    ND is not waiting for AM to hand the game to him

    I’m afraid I stopped reading Kojo’s posts some time ago…….only because i couldn’t understand what he was saying half the time……LOL




    The time to worry is when you understand all of the post :O) HH

    Game over



    Cannot break him.



    End of story.



    I didn’t watch the Olympics or the US Open final – maybe it is my fault.

    Murray loses serve in third game, fourth set. The Serb in control now.


    Andy looks like the pre-Lendl player, it will be a gigantic comeback if he can win this.








    I was back home for a coupla weeks,but now returned to Swindon.



    I miss it already,a place like no other.



    Should you be home late-April.find a pinta Tennent’s that I missed and we’ll chew the fat.



    If that is unsuitable,let me know when is-I’ll send my Dad round,he’s vastly superior company anyway!



    FFS,look after yourself out there. And the joke about the newly-weds was a belter!!!!!!!

    I see you’re multi-tasking here but could you point me to what I said that you disagree with?

  9. Re Murray v Djokovic



    Reminds me a bit of the semi at Wimbledon in 2011 when AM was leading and on top in 2nd set. Then he missed an easy shot and let Rafa Nadal back into it – today he played brilliantly in the 2nd set but still win it and since then he look as though he’s got a (increasinngly less) slow puncture. Hope I am wrong

    up working in Glasgow next week. Does anyone know of any football centres where you can just turn up for a gemme- pay and play. Veterans ideally as I am over fifty with a BMI of 28.Indoors or outdoors would be fine.

    Time to get organised, shower etc and a meet up on viccy road for the game. Wherever your watching, be safe and enjoy the day. Heres to another awesome display by the bhoy’s. I’m sticking with 5-0 after a quiet first 15.



    2 from Hoops, Sammi heeder, Big Vic thunderbolt (heid or foot) and take your pick for the other. Hopefully you’ll all forgive me my earlier mucky transgression when yer aw pashed.

    Richie – it would be one helluva comeback from this position. I hope he does though!




  13. what time is kick off today….is it 12.30..gmt….so i can ‘AHEM…go find some work needing done’…………….4 and a half hours ahead out here…

  14. I take it that Charles Green’s rangers are paying VAT for all the 46,000+ crowds they say they have at every home match

    I just find rampant capitalists tend to be very hypocritical when making points about freedom, already today tinytim has identified both Cuba and china as if they are the best examples to prove his points when in fact there are far worse examples from the so called democracies.

  16. Snake



    I don’t watch AM cause I believe I’m a jinx



    He appears moody, grumpy and dour…for me it’s just his temperament …however it often gets misrepresented as him being a quitter



    I think he plays a very high class opposition most games and I don’t think he is as good ND at present



    …watching the assistance he had to get from the chiropodist …nae wonder he’s struggling …looked very painful

  17. Murray 4-1 down – looks like he’s run out of steam. Blisters and a suspect hamstring making him look less and less mobile.





    I have no problem with you airing your opinions-indeed,I am always open to the views of others,and to furthering my education.



    I just don’t think it sits well that they are effectively the same as KOJO’s attack on MLK,and he was hounded for it. Rightly,IMO.



    Sometimes our heroes have feet of clay,so what? I’m no-one’s hero,and just as well,cos the tabloids would have a field day.



    As I say,I’m always open to education and debate. One of the great things about this site is our ability to do so without rancour.



    Ya perra eeeeeeeejits………(kidding!)

    Know thine enemy.


    CAUTION to those of sensitive disposition ie. normal.


    Remembrance day at Ibrox.


    If you can`t stand the whole 11 mins.,go to 4 mins. in.


    Talk about sullying the uniform.


    Reminiscent of the drunken displays on the 12th.

    Passed hampden and they nice traffic warden folk are doing a wonderful job of clearing all they parked cars away by putting them on the back of lorries – absolutely nothing to do with revenue generation

  21. 4-1



    Deary me.



    There were no breaks until Murray lost it in the 3rd set.


    After that he has gone down a predictable line.


    Sad to see but he simply does not look as fit as the Serb.



    He has a blister which may or may not be causing him problems but he does this all the time – to beat the best players you cannot give away free points – therein lies the difference



    I will be astounded if Murray wins this now.

  22. tommytwiststommyturns on

    praecepta – and an opponent who is taking advantage and has Andy running all over the court!




  23. Djokovic is proving how he is the best in the World. Incredible tennis. It is not over yet though as Andy has the ability to break him.



    Get in there.

  24. For Ernie (you’ll like this)



    In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Louisiana State University .



    On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.



    The elephant turned to face the man and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments.



    Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.



    Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing.



    The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.



    Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.



    Probably wasn’t the same elephant.

  25. Praecepta



    A mammoth game against Federer last wouldn’t have helped either



    His feet looked horrendous

  26. TTTT



    Nothing wrong with it – but looked to me as if Djokovic indulged in a number of lengthy rallies since he saw Murray get treatment on his foot.

  27. Heading to game, anyone else got a ticket were main part is £5 under 16. Tear off is Adult £15.



    Genuine ticket from Celtic.



    SFA shambles as usual.

  28. Snake



    Pedantic I may be …but Murray doesn’t do it all the time …



    Perhaps often but not all the time otherwise he wouldn’t be No3 in the whirls and the Olympic and US Open champion
