Tomorrow sees us achieve that rarest of things,a 3pm Saturday kick-off. Seems that way anyway,but it’s only two weeks since our last one-and possibly our best performance of the season to date,giving our nearest rivals Kilmarnock a wee push back to their place in the queue of admirers.
They have an away match at Hamilton tomorrow,let’s see how they cope with that pitch! Slippy Steven takes his hordes to Perth on Sunday,where the douce locals will doubtless be aghast at the antics of the hordes. Police Scotland will do nothing and TV will turn off the microphones.
That’s the predictions then,now to the reviews. Wednesday night,and we all knew it would happen. Our only fit striker becomes our only striker on the treatment bench. Edouard took a thigh knock,no-one seems sure whether it was a pull or a strain. Either way,he didn’t last the first half. Fortunately,we were pretty much in control by then-Eddie having played a big part in both goals-and Michael Johnson scored a peach to wrap it up. So continues our excellent home form,a marked contrast to last season,and also to our away form this season.
After Dundee tomorrow,two toughies on the road at Aberdeen and Sevco. I hope any Celtic fans in attendance have ordered a suit of armour from Santa. Baseball bat or length of 4 by 2 might not go amiss either. Then it’s the winter break,that time of year which our CEO knows as Time You Got Yer Finger Oot Yer Arse,Lawwell. Personally,I don’t think he needs to do that,I think he needs to get his fingers out of his ears and stop shouting Lalalalalala,can’t hear you! But that’s just me. This year,PL will be too busy counting his £2.3m bonus.
Aye,I’m being totally serious. How he can earn a bonus on the back of downing tools during our CL qualifiers beats me.
Some of you may recall the attempt around a year ago to stop Celtic supporters parking their vehicles within about two miles or so of the ground. Many of you raised objections at the time,which saw the measures stalled while investigations were made. Now,an independent reporter has been tasked to adjudicate.
Anyone who raised an objection should have received a mail in the last day or two,informing them of the current situation thus…
“If you wish to be heard in support of your objection you are required to confirm this in writing to Andy Waddell, Director of Operations, Neighbourhoods and Sustainability, Exchange House, 231 George Street, Glasgow, G1 1RX or email firstname.lastname@example.org . Your written request must be received by this office no later than 5.00pm on Friday 25 January 2019.”
I suggest-actually,it was my Machiavellian sister-that EVERY one of you request to have your say at the hearing,and to have your question answered in person. Civil disobedience,I believe is the term. They’ll try to steamroller this as always happens and the only way to stop it is by the equivalent of a filibuster. Request your right to be heard and answered in person. See how long their hearing takes them when they have 60,000 petitions to respond to.
Not wanting to start the weekend on a sour note though. Save the good news till last,I know how to work an audience,eh? Congratulations to Callum McGregor as he becomes the latest of our players to sign a long-term contract extension. Till 2023,in his case.
Take a bow,son. You’ve sure earned that contract!
