We spoil the league

782

Illustrating the very high regard the business community and people of Barcelona hold Celtic fans, one of the city’s top restaurants, Cinc Sentis have donated lunch for two towards our annual charity causes.

I am assured by our resident food critic (WDH), Cinc Sentis is a fabulous dining experience.  The auction has just gone live – so get a low bid in early – and ends Sunday.  If you’re heading to Barcelona next week, or anytime thereafter, get your eBay bid in here.

Many thanks to Cinc Sentis and WDH.

Read lots yesterday about the vast majority of people in Scotland missing the ‘Old Firm’ games.  Trying hard to inoculate myself against any “bravado” I really don’t see this.  The edge we used to feel when going into the final minutes of a game needing a goal is no longer there, but I’m really not sure that edge is healthy or necessary.

More than this, I don’t know a single fan from another Premiership club who regrets the liquidation of Rangers, or feels their life is enhanced by the presence of Celtic.  Everyone is aware of the harsh reality – we spoil the league.

We do, of course, sell copy, as did the liquidated lot.

  1. Had 3 stints in Tennents in the 70s during the summer hols. Cant say it was overtly hunnish half and half IMO.Although my mother didnt know I drank untilI I came home from there sober one afternoon.

  2. Bocchinibhoy….

     

     

    Are you responsible for producing that napalm from Wellpark in the 70s then?

     

     

    You should be feckin ashamed of yourself haha.

     

     

     

    Big Fat Derek Johnstone now wakes up next to one of the Lager Lovelies every morning.

     

     

    My teenage hormones responded briefly to the girls on the cans until I discovered proper looking women at a Stranglers concert,dancing on stage to Nice n’ Sleazy……An epiphany moment that was.

  3. The Sevilla president sentenced to Seven years in prison for ‘corruption’.!

    My cousin was on the ole lager can for a while.

     

     

    We set the bar particularly low in our family.

     

     

    And she would never get busy with big fat DJ before you ask.

  5. Liz on SSN suggesting an ‘old firm’ charity game to unite Scotland in view of our recent ‘trajetees’.

     

     

    She’s probably a nice person, but sounds so misguided and ill informed of the consequences of anything like this.

     

     

    Bless…hope she makes herself a nice Sangwich.

    Fully agree with every word……we have endured / prevailed, following a long hard struggle against downright racial and religious bigotry for over 100 years, and now that we have a chance to ‘mend the wounds’, and work towards a better society for all, the zombies must not be allowed to ‘resurrect’ their vile hatred…….

  8. Steinreignedsupreme…..

     

     

    Sounds great raising the bar lower for limbo dancing Tennents Lovelies.

     

     

    P.S…..Janice was my favourite.

    Glad to hear that. She wasn’t my cousin…

    Get my addy from BMCUWP and we can share a libation or two whilst you are in Escocia.

  11. Rangers QC tried to argue on his client’s behalf that The Lord Provost’s Ibrox Disaster Fund be used towards any damages awarded against Rangers, and failing this, that the £50,000 contribution Rangers had made be used towards any damages awarded by the courts!

     

     

    Sheriff threw these submissions out as flawed in that the money in the Fund had been donated for charitable purposes and not to offset damages awarded against Rangers.

     

     

    They want a charity match? Remind me of their last one against AC Milan.

    “Those images were in NO WAY offensive!

     

     

    “Imo, of course!”

     

     

    I agree. I saw them at the Apollo around that time. Memorable night. Great band.

     

     

    But some folk may take issue and there could be weans about that maybe think that’s what they’ll get when they go to see someone off the x factor…

    “They want a charity match? Remind me of their last one against AC Milan.”

     

     

    I think the last one was against Man Utd. But it was the same outcome regarding distribution of cash.

  15. Good evening all.

    I’ve often wondered how things went for Annie. I walk the blind hound past the bench overlooking the shore where she was found most weekends and noticed the flowers and photo of Annie before I read about the background.

     

     

    Always remember her in my prayers and will now also remember her family.

     

     

    I’m very local to the spot and have some working knowledge of the procedure involved in Sudden Death and FAI enquiries.

     

     

    I’d be glad to help if required. You can get my details if you need them from Paul.

     

     

    Thoroughly enjoyed you knocking spots off the mason loving committee at the Parly recently. You’d be a formidable advocate for any cause on that form.

     

     

    You don’t look anything like I thought you would, by the way,

    All Stranglers concerts at the Apollo were memorable but the one with the girls was incredible for a teenage Ryecatcher.it was a hard act to follow until a certain Miss Deborah Harry slowly walked on to stage at the Strathclyde Uni gig.

  21. Spent the day rebuilding my fences and garden furniture. Total devastation. On the plus side, never lost power, which surprised even us. :) Early bed tonight as we have been up since 0330 this morning. RIP to the truck driver who perished during the storm, there, for the grace of god go I. Thank god I’ve retired.

    Debbie Harry replace Kenny Dalglish on my wall.

     

     

    A decision I’ve never regretted. Some good came out of that move to Liverpool.

    Kenny is my ALL TIME football hero.

     

     

    Would have loved Deborah to have played for the Hoops in front of even him though.

  26. Estadio Nacional on

    ‘We spoil the league’ seems a bit blasé yes we bring in the money as the biggest club by far but should we not spoil it with the kind of football we just played against hearts at the weekend and Kilmarnock away to win the league a bit more?

     

     

    That would be spoiling the fans, that would be a good thing.

     

     

    I’ve a feeling our bravado is starting to be seen by other Scottish fans the same way as the muck were in the 90s, that’s not a way we should go.

     

     

    Spoil the league with the kind of football Dundee United seem to do quite regularly these day, do the same tomorrow night and keep it going.

    Not sure I posted post Milan but just to say it was a pleasure meeting you again mate, and of course the others I knew or didn’t know before that day. Probably the highlight of the day, if only I could keep up with you…

     

     

    Hope all is well.

    He was mine. That was the second last time I got upset about a player leaving Celtic.

     

     

    On the subject of memorable gigs. I remember Bow Wow Wow played Tiffany’s and they had two dancers with them Mo and Flo.

     

     

    They fairly made an impression on me, and also a bunch of shady characters wearing dirty macs. That was a very weird crowd that night.

     

     

    The only time I’ve been at a gig where middle-age men were fighting to get to the front of the stage.

     

     

    Another cracking gig but.

  32. King Lubo

     

     

    I’ve also been at hundreds of games against Deidco.

     

    I know for certain, I will never miss that sick, gut wrenching feeling when they scored and that Sectarian cess pit erupting .

     

    Often wondered how life could be so cruel, on my way home to bed , I should be out partying celebrating another victory, no skulking off home avoiding all human contact when we were beaten .

     

    Of course , I now understand, something we suspected for years, that on a lot of these occasions we were systematically cheated .

     

    I , for one never want to play them in their new incarnation and will not attend if that happens.

     

    Just cannot tolerate their supremacist bigoted support .

     

     

    Absolutely NO to newco

  33. Third Division Lee Wallace being described as the best left back in Scotland on SSB hahahaha…….

     

     

     

    Someone mentioned Izzy then the panel went silent.

     

     

    In my opinion Adam Matthews is a better full back , left or right than anyone in Scotland.

     

     

    To be fair, Macca made me laugh when he said he thought Wallace was probably the best left back at Ibrox.
