The kind of Armageddon that buys you a meal, takes you to a show & onto a nightclub


As far as Armageddons go, this one will surely be known as the Amiable Nursemaid of all Armageddons.  The kind that not so much wipes everyone out, but buys them a meal, then takes them to a show and onto a nightclub.

Sky has renewed their deal to cover the Scottish Premier League after Our Man sorted them out yesterday.  They will show a handful of Scottish Football League games as part of the deal, a nice quid-pro-quo for SPL clubs for their annual contribution to the lower leagues.

Delicious irony: those SFL rights are worth more to each SPL club than they are to any SFL club.

Chief harbinger of doom, Neil Doncaster, will, on the one hand, be relieved that there is still income to pay his wages.  On the other hand, he must surely be embarrassed at the spectacularly in accurate scenario he portrayed to SFL clubs, and to several people in the media.  Did he embark on a flamboyant bluff or did he simply not know what he was talking about?

Remember, why we are here in the first place… Our good causes this year are The Haven Centre in Blantyre, Oscar Knox Neuroblastoma Appeal, Martin Chambers Ecuador Trust and Aberdour Primary School Parents’ Association.

We have already distributed over £2000 thanks to the sale of a Joseph Gormley painting back in April. We have two further fantastic paintings by Joseph; one of Scott Brown and one of Henrik Larsson. We also have a wonderful signed Neil Lennon print by the artist Gary Brandham.

The items are being raffled on ebay right now for the price of a £1 ticket. Winners will be drawn at the CQN Open on Friday night. There will be further raffles and auctions on Friday night with some excellent golfing and other sporting activities been donated by the Celtic family. Perhaps the pick is a limited edition canvas print of John Thomson, donated by the John Thomson Memorial Committee. There are only 22 of these in the entire world, representing the 22 years of John’s life.

This is a unique opportunity to win three great pieces of Celtic memorabilia, items which would normally be pushed out of the reach of most people at auction. Tickets cost £1, buy as many as you like, but participate. This is what your club is all about!

    Looks like its going to be a sell out at Fir Park tonight,at £30 a ticket that’s excellent!!!




  2. Interesting to note Celtic wages are comparable to many Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A teams going by that table.

  3. Sixteen roads to Golgotha on

    £13million per season eh? Peanuts.Reckon it won’t mean much more than the paltry £1.2million per season that Celtic get from the present TV deal.



    Ladbrokes are in negotiations to purchase Dermot Desmond’s Betdaq betting exchange – Suppose that won’t make any difference to Celtic though.

    ibleedgreenandwhite1-I thought £30 was a bit high but fair play if they have.

  5. There is no short fall for any team with this deal. The huns were taking a big chunk last year, i’m thinking every team will be better of with this deal.

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

    Is the Motherwell game on the telly tonight, chaps..?

    That’s a good point mate.Think the huns are ourselves got the most,and all the other clubs got about £800,000 each last season.



    If it keeps some of them ticking over,then i am happy enough,considering that they stood firm against the hun.

  10. Just listening to Tony “Cheeseman” Martin’s classic albums. I particularly loved the late 50s easy listening classic “Cheese don’t grow on Trees” and the eponymous crooner signature style on “Who put the cheese in platter?”, with the wonderfully shmaltzy track “Gor, Gor, Gor…gonzola” and the biographical “I’m as blue as Stilton”- then of course there’s the sixty’s and early seventies stuff with the “Don’t sneeze on my cheese” his best album of that era and proved once and for all that Tony was the true “Cheesman” and the consummate songster.



    RIP Tony “Cheeseman” Martin. A true legned.

    “He’s only been here five minutes and he’s calling us all bigots already.”Neil Lennon’s verdict on Green’s comments.

  15. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Who would have thought that Ewing Graham was a Dermot Desmond sleeper plucked at a young age and groomed and trained so that when the day finally came he was on the inside helping us on the outside ?????



    The question arises was he really doing it for love of Dermot or his chastened love for Sir David ???



    So Saltires can you tell me this via email ??????



    Hail Hail

  16. Black and Dean Shiels just proves how the modern day player chase the cash before any other ambition- if you are willing to offer the dough then they will come…the same would be true if it was Celtic offering ridiculous sums to over-hyped foreigners…don’t care what anyone says about them wanting to play in EPL/La Liga/Bundesliga/SerieA etc, the level of lucre decides the deal in most cases.

  17. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on




    I reckon their latent bigot genes started itching .. the pair of them.



    Hail Hail

    Lol. :))

    Awe Naw-I thought Ewing Grahame frequented Heraghtys ? Some can’t say no to the King’s Shillin’

  20. !!Bada Bing!! on

    VP-Are you getting off The Armchair on Saturday and meeting the Gazebo Gang after the game?

  21. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Ok Folks saltires has peaked my curiosity.



    If any of you whom I respect and you know who you are can send me an email telling me to lay off of Ewing Graham and that Saltires is right then I will trust what he says.



    If I have no email from any of you about this then I will presume that Saltires is trying his best for his mate. Always a good sign in a man except for when he chooses scumbags as mates.



    Hail Hail

  22. Initial thoughts are that I hope there’s a get out clause in the sky deal.


    CFC need to cut our own deal and include our worldwide support in a decent affordable Celtic tv deal, to hell with sky sports.



  23. Perhaps RTC could change the Blog name to S.F.A Headcase and have a wee look at their rule book.

    Their history has ceased as they have ceased.



    New club equals new history.



    We know that and we should make sure they never forget that.



    Hang our number of League Titles from the top tier above the GB.



    Every time we win one increase it.



    IF they every win one again take one off it.



    Generations of Celtic fans can keep this going.



    It will get right on their wick :-)))))



    43 ( and could/should be more ) we welcome the chase.



    Celtic always have been, always will be.



    Hail hail
