Winning against nearest rivals, Charlie Gallagher, Pablo

702

I don’t recall having seen us win the league against our direct competitors. Has it happened in the last 49 years? Yesterday’s results at Tynecastle and Pittodrie ensures that a point against Aberdeen on Sunday will be enough to confirm Celtic as 5-in-a-row champions. As it stands, a 17 goal win for Aberdeen would put us under pressure for the last two games of the season…..

This will be the fourth time in Scottish football history 5-in-a-row has been achieved and Celtic’s third. The last time we were here, Hay, Gemmell, Murdoch, McNeill, Johnstone, Wallace, Auld and Lennox did a lot of the heavy work, with youngsters like Macari, McGrain and Dalglish on the periphery of the team. It was a team which would soon embark on considerable change, which is at least one thing they have in comment with contemporary Celtic.

Another member of that Celtic team, Charlie Gallagher, left the club exactly 46 years ago today, after an extraordinary decade. Charlie will be on the blog tomorrow evening from around 7pm, to reminisce on that incredible era, answer questions and give an opinion or two. These are always great sessions, tune in and enjoy.

Five years ago today we lost Pablophanque, the first guy who said, “We need to bring Kano home”. Pablo was one of the few who made Celtic Quick News what it became in the early days. He made many friends here, who miss him still, and a profound impact on our community.

    I’m just surprised that entries for goal of the season isn’t restricted to goals scored against Celtic!

  2. From page 1 regarding epl and big league corruption and the refs favouring the big teams due to a proposed big team breakaway.

     

     

    The EPL world wide TV rights, including UK, is worth 8.5 BILLION pounds.

     

     

    Thats a lot of money to keep the current status quo happy is it not!

  3. The BBC pay the EPL £204 MILLION to play the highlights. Not for a live game but for highlights.

     

     

    What did the SPL get as a rushed thru hurriedly negotiated TV deal again?

    Man U, Chelsea and Liverpool will all finish outside the top 4 this season, the refs down there are doing a shitey job at fixing it for the big boys.

    The big boys are doing a good job at fecking it up!

     

     

    I was meaning in the game today. It was almost hun/masonic like the way the ref favoured Man U.

     

     

    But thanks for that, was more pointing out that the amount of money the epl makes its wide open for corruption

    Right..?

  11. I wouldn’t normally but good chance I will. Lots of good people will be there.

  12. Brilliant for the two Celts getting the POTY awards.Will make this a fantastic week for them.Also delighted at wee Paddy saying he would miss out on the Euros to play for Celtic in the qualifiers.I think the boy gets us already.

     

    Re the Sevco goal winning the “Best goal”.To be fair,it was a belter.Better than Toms?Toss of a coin for me.

     

    In the new manager debate,whoever gets it will have the support of the vast majority of the fans.I just think its time we went for a proven ,successful manager.Apart from Lenny,the ones mentioned so far have done little.Lambert done well initially moving through the lower leagues,but its not been happening lately,even with him AND Roy Keane together.Not for me any of the names so far.

    Eldiegobhoy.

     

    It’s sometimes difficult to say the right thing in very difficult circumstances.

     

    On this occasion I will steal Spirit of Arthur Lee’s.

     

    Love.

     

    That is what is shining through this blog for you.

     

    I hope it is giving you some comfort.

  14. Lambert and Henrik wtf? The first has two brain cells while the KoK has proved nowt at management. Please God no.

    I suppose the counter argument can be that no matter where you finish in the EPL you are making mind boggling money so where is the incentive to fix it.

     

     

    Man U wont be the CL next season, won’t have won their league (might win the FA Cup) yet will make more money than any other team. The top 20 riches clubs next season will be made up of 16 or so English teams.

     

     

    No matter how shite they are money falls into their laps.

  16. Jimmynotpaul on

    H.T.

     

    C. What is it with you?

     

    You fair attract them buddy.

     

    First the troll Ryecatcher and now The Donald having a pop at you.

     

    Keep on doing what you do my friend.

     

    You have a true love for your family, friends and your club. A hundred per cent genuine ghuy.

     

    C. I know your faith means so much to you, maybe a wee prayer for the trolls that they can find love and true happiness.

  17. Jimmynotpaul. CQN at its best as I said earlier. Sadly I lost my wife three years ago and the support I received was humbling frankly.

  18. Huddle

     

     

    Exactly, mhate.

     

     

    The champions get upwards of 250 million I think will bottom gets close to £100 million.

     

     

    The £8.5 Billion I quoted was over 3 years but the figure seems so huge it could be believed they could get this per year!

     

     

    The league gets nearly £3 billion just from TV rights never mind sponsorship etc etc etc.

     

     

    We are on a hiding to nothing as are most of the teams outisde the big TFV leagues of England, Germany and Spain.

     

     

    Kinda sucks but its got to be our next goal. To GTF out of the SPL……

  19. JIMMYNOTPAUL on 1ST MAY 2016 10:29 PM :-))

     

     

    IL PADRINO on 1ST MAY 2016 10:33 PM Not a management team I would like

     

    but what do I know, I didnt think Leigh Griffiths was Celtic material

     

     

    HH

  20. Has anyone ever met The Donald?

     

     

    Is he a real person or is he an internet persona as such.

     

     

    Anyone know him?

  21. Bloody hell, I did not mean to sound like fat sally there……………..

     

     

    ………………………I didnt demand that we know who The Donald is.

     

     

    Just if anyone knows him?

    Yep, probably never happen but we should’ve resigned from the SPL years ago and bought an English lower league team, sucks for that team but shit happens

  23. Tam

     

     

    Some times its better to say nothing at all.

     

     

    but then words say a lot.

     

     

    i cant…??????. but God bless to the lads that have lost someone close.

    I believe he’s well known in the US of A, has lovely hair

  25. Watching Hillsborough, as some have posted the last few days, it’s frightening how close we came.

     

    Probably the Dundee game for me.

  26. Huddle

     

     

    Was I hearing rumours about Oxford or some team like that. A team that do not own the stadium (so no upkeep payments and a lower buying price because of this)

     

     

    A team who we could buy the license as such and go from there?
