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.

    Sorry, no. I was listening to the ICT-Hearts extra time and forgot about Fraser Wishart, but I’d still like to ask him how Sevco can be anything but a new club if players transferred to it under TUPE. It’s the most glaringly obvious put-down there is to the big fib.



    Fraser has said players transferred under TUPE. He has said Charles Green has agreed with the PFA that TUPE applied. How then can anyone argue it’s the same club? Same club would mean same employer. How could TUPE apply if those players were still with the same employer?

    What a remarkable tribute to you, your mother, to Dick Byrne and to Christopher for you to remember Christopher’s anniversary.



    In the present circumstances, with the 24 hours you have had, that really is an amazing thing for you to have said. Such goodness is a sign of greatness. Your mother and father would be very proud of you.

  3. Dick Byrne



    Please God the pain will ease slowly as the years pass, but everyone knows that’s not always how things work out.



    God bless you and your family. God rest poor Christopher and have mercy on the person who put you all through so much pain, as you were big enough, kind enough, humble enough and brilliant enough to say at the time, which was an unforgettable lesson for everyone.

    It is no wonder that you are held in such high regard here, even at the worst time in your life, you are thinking of others.



    I reckon The Lord, the real King of Kings has taken home one of his finest.

    You won’t be playing it nice tomorrow morning with your papish smug smirks…

    How good was that performance, I think we were 2 behind.



    One of the finest ever nights at Celtic Park because of the Spanking dished out.



    I think teams are spooked when they play at Celtic Park. Celtic are becoming a better away side in Europe. It is a miracle especially as there is no chance to practice it in the domestic League – the Deadly counter attack.

  14. Singers and musicians who are taking part in the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow will be heading for church on Sunday, 27 January 27, as St Aloysius in Garnethill hosts the Mass of Our Celtic Roots. The Mass will be at 4pm and all are welcome to attend.



    The Mass is held annually in association with the hugely successful festival, which has gone from strength to strength since its inception 20 years ago.



    Monsignor Gerry Fitzpatrick, musical director of the St Mungo Singers, said: “We hope to combine in the service the beauty, power and discipline of classical music with the often haunting appeal and richness of refined poetic, musical and artistic creativity that defines the festival itself.”



    He added: “Since Celtic Connections attracts a great many visitors to Glasgow and many of them are Christian or Catholic, it was decided more than 10 years ago that we would have a Mass to mark the occasion and provide the opportunity for visitors from other parts of the ‘Celtic World’ to worship together.The clergy and community at St Aloysius have always been so welcoming, and representation from the Irish Gaelic and Scots Gaelic communities in the city has been consistently encouraging.”



    The Mass will be supported by students from the Royal Conservatoire of Music and Drama and the Glasgow Gaelic School and by the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre and the Knights of St Columba, and priests concelebrating will wear the ‘Vestments of the Celtic Saints’, created by ‘the Sacred Threads’, group of expert embroiderers.





    Mon the Celtic.



    PS. Hope we win the game in 90 minutes, then people might get in for the offertory.

  15. I kid not – my wife’s just asked – what’s happened to rangers’ – really enjoyed telling her

  16. tommytwiststommyturns on

    C_1st @ 22:06 – Amen to that. I can’t belive that 5 years have passed since that tragic event.



    Z – you continue to show everyone on here what a wonderful human being you are, even at the worst of times for your family. Come back to the blog in your own good time, you’ve been sorely missed my friend.






  17. Has anyone heard Mgr Fitzpatrick sing?



    He must be to music what André Villas-Boas and José Mourinho are to football: that you don’t have to have performed at a high level yourself to bring the highest level of performance out in others.



    No offence, Monsignor, if you are looking in.

  18. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.


    Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963


    Good night all


    May you all be blessed with the strength to handle whatever comes your way.



  19. Zbyszek,



    An example to us all that you think of others at this time,



    I hope the words below help you as they have me..



    Death is nothing at all…


    I have only slipped away to the next room…


    I am I and you are you…


    Whatever we were to each, that we are still.



    Call me by my old familiar name,


    Speak it to me in the same way you always used.


    Put no difference into your tone,


    Wear no false air of solemnity or sorrow.



    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.


    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.


    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.


    Let it be spoken without effect, without the ghost of a shadow on it.



    Life means all that it ever meant.


    It is the same as it ever was.


    There is absolutely unbroken continuity.


    What is this death but a negligible accident.



    I am but waiting for you for an interval


    Somewhere very near


    Just around the corner.


    All is well.

  20. Evening bhoys from a cold hun free mountain valley.



    Listened to the sportsound link, what a joke are the sfa.



    Yer man McKendrik said that the origonal panel accepted dallas’s evidence, fair enough, as expected, so Sheil’s appeals, and dallas refuses to attend, rendering the appeal a farce.



    I would wager not a single jurno will ask any questions.
