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.

    As you are no doubt aware there are a few Tims in Kilwinning – I was at school with some of them. Left St Michael’s in 1973 – I’m gettin’ on a bit!



    Have had the pleasure of BMCUW’s company twice on my last 2 trips over – in October and during the festive season. Not in Kilwinning ‘tho, but Troon.



    A word of warning ‘tho – should you meet him for a drink and he tells you he has to go for the last train home, make sure he leaves in plenty of time!



    C’mon the Hoops!

    Of whom,my thanks for the post the other night.






    One of my faves,on repeat every time it comes up on an ipod or CD.



    And on vinyl (orig) even though I shouldn’t risk damaging the stylus…



    Another wee story which you may well have read. If not,well worth a few minutes.




  3. PeterScarff:



    Celtic were not playing against a team from the US or Vietnam. However, of course you have a point.





    Loved your discourse on economics the other night,absolutely brilliant stuff.



    Cap doffed…..

  5. Biram Kayal was done by Elbows in the 1-0 match.He has struggled ever since, as did Gary Hooper after Bougherra tried to sever his Achilles.Both were bad injuries,and only lately has GH been back or nearly back to his best.I expect Biram to be the same.Meanwhile well-known liar(according to an ex-referee)McKendrick is taken out of a BBC podcast.That may be for legal reasons,butknowing what they’ve done before,not surprising.

  6. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors on

    I see sally wants to know the names of those who said they would win every game this season…..

  7. lol….im now in falkirk…i had some work to do back in the old town…took the work mate along…we get there…and after an hour he says..”why did you leave…if youd stuck around here youd be mayor by now”…..

    John if this place is bonkers and you are posting here about how bonkers it is can I conclude that you are in fact bonkers too??



    Bonkers CSC



    C’mon the Hoops

  9. Just arrived at a wet and windy toryglen …. Think i will sit in the car for another half hour

  10. PeterScarff:



    Celtic have a firm and sensible outlook about political extremists. Jock Stein, Martin O’Neill and Neil Lennon have all articulated the club’s position. As did Bob Kelly. As did individuals throughout our history,





    Magic,every minute of it.



    Even the extra ones which caused me to miss the train!



    Your fault,mind-Scotrail only had them running on time in your honour. Seems Italians insist on such things……….

    Why the constant desire to replace Samaras ?



    What has Watt done of late for you to have him replace Samaras ?



    McGeouch …why ?



    No Izzy ?



    Why change a winning team so drastically ?

  13. BobbyMurdochs…



    Cheers mate, and thanks to Izzy too for the ‘History of Oil’ link


    I have been sleeping

  14. starry plough:



    Agreed! It is bonkers at times though! My scattergun post did not help matters! Good luck Celtic!

  15. CFC playing ICT away on 9 th feb

    John o…,


    I practice redistribution of my personal wealth every time I pay my taxes.


    The analogy about censorship and lack of freedom of speech in a so called democracy was simply to identify the hypocracy of the so called “free world”, therefore far more offensive.


    The same hypocracy that refuses to condemn Arab countries ruled by monarchies simply because their corruption is paralleled with the so called “free world”


    The so called “free world” trade openly and freely with countries that still practice slavery,


    by default condone the practice, there is no fantastic leap of faith to make this logic work.


    Honestly who gives a funkeys muck about a pop stars opinion on a subject that would put him in his place, as the insignificant troubadour he is. Protecting his personal wealth is not exactly an honourable position, especially in a country where child malnutrition and mortality are becoming issues being censored.

    Listening to mince on shortbread and searching the world wide web … So no even looking out the car window.

    Somehow I doubt it……..



    They can sniff oot a Tim at ten miles distant. Education and good looks usually gives us away any nearer than that-I’m undercover,btw!!!!!



    Don’t forget,wur toon had an MP by the name of Brian Donohoe,a guid Tim name wasted on a hun!

    You know I worship Sammi, but so far I have seen 4-3-1-2s featuring Commons, and Watt/Hooper was the best strike partnership to go with it.



    Mcgeouch – good question. He has done well individually in the few games we’ve seen him, so as I haven’t seen a midfield 3 in this formation that’s been outstanding, it’s him over Kayal. The Kayal-Wanyama-Ledley v DU was terrific (no thanks to Kayal, but hey, he was part of it) but that was a more spread out 4-3-3.



    Izzy has been no great shakes this season. Matthews is better than Lustig in 4-3-1-2 but he is also better than Izzy out left.



    If Commons isn’t fit, I’d choose a much more mainstream team – the one that started v DU (Rogne excepted).



    Anyhow, no doubt the team is up by now, rendering all this moot, (but not mute).

  20. ….pfayr




    One more sleekit wee stitch-up…..and, for The Bhoys, 3 days before the biggest match of the season for any team in Scotland.


    Of course, I’m just a Tim, so my thoughts are automatically twisted at birth.


    Well, that’s yer lot in Scotland. Not enough to be a minority, abuse is a given, encuraged by a low gutter msm.




    Good to see the London Huns being humiliated!


    : > )

  21. UOG



    We’ve scored eight goals in the last two games …I see no reason for change …never mind drastic change

  22. Sure enough:



    Zaluska; Matthews, Wilson, Mulgrew, Izaguirre; Brown, Wanyama, Ledley, Samaras; Lassad, Hooper






    Great team.



    (Subs:Fasan, Stokes, Commons, Lustig, Kayal)

  23. Brentford fans with a smoke bomb, lucky the Dundee police arent involved, they’d be scared for their lives

  24. BMCUW



    Italian trains can be a bit of a nightmare – was never thus when old Benito was in power! :-)



    About the only thing that worked, apparently!



    Drogba for Celtic?! I can say with all certainty that he will defenitely join us on loan until the end of the season – or he wont! My Italian ‘source’ – whose identity I can not divulge – assures me of this!
