The Road Well Travelled.

Morning,all.

Well,it’s been a long phoney war,but it seems to be kicking into gear. A bit. The huns have done what they’ve always done,which is go for broke in the hope of getting it right with two signings. Who between them cost somewhere between six bob and nine million.  Strikers anaw,68 goals in nine seasons isn’t to be sneezed at. 

I think it would be another dwarf commenting on that,to be fair. And Dopey might have a word or two to say too. 

Meantime,we are allegedly linked with Stephen Fletcher-who I didn’t want even in the Willo Flood window!-and Lenny adds credence with a statement on the subject. Personally,I think he’s winding them up,leading them up a dark alley. The one I would like,who we seem to be interested in,is Sebastien Anderssen from Union Berlin. 

A goal every 220 minutes and more assists than goals,regular now for Sweden. We have till Saturday to cough the release fee of €4m. Then the price goes up. 

Meantime,some of us are a bunch of pessimistic basterts and are already wondering why we bought those I Wanna Be Edouard t-shirts. Others are worse,and telling us that the world will end unless we sign a left-sided centre back. 

And then there’s me who says we need a 2020 version of the Lennon 2000. 

So who is right? 

The obvious answer is all of us and none of us,because there are so many games in a season that you can prove your point,or other people can tell you that you know eff all. That’s why we call each other friends,btw(!!!!)

But maybe a lifetime of experience,all of it hard earned,can advise us on the pitfalls,and on what to be wary of. Because,one thing you can say about Celtic after a lifetime of watching them,they never build on success. 

The players have to earn it. 

Aye,it’s all the more a pleasure,but should it be such hard work? It’s actually been quite hard work for about two thirds of our title run. The fans can see the deficiencies in certain areas,and so too can the management staff. They’re not blind to faults,they know the score. 

So why is it that our manager,no matter who,no matter which season,can’t simply go in and say

“We both know you want me to be successful,Peter. It’s why you hired me. At the moment,that’s a left sided centre back who can cover as full back,a Mini-Me in defensive midfield and a serious proposition up front if you sell Eddy.”

And not be told,noted and sorted. 

I’m sick to the back teeth of not knowing who will be playing for us next season,despite having a well-founded dread of who won’t. It’s not good enough,and no manager should have to suffer this year after year. And nor should the fans. 

I’m not worried about the huns stopping The Ten. I’m more concerned about the powers that be throwing it away.

I am obviously showing my age here … I’m a youngster, not like BP … but I always thought lard was pig fat, but drippings could be either pig fat or beef fat ….

jimthetim53

Mike, I suspect you might be right. My mother always bought her dripping from the local butchers. I reckon they would use whatever came to hand. Beef, pork, lamb.

Double post, the ‘Edit’ function seems to come and go

I remember my Granny going into the butchers one Friday, she had a tongue that could cut you in two, the butcher knew we were a big Tim family, and she asked him for 2lb of sliced skwerr sausages. The butcher shouted at her “Ahhh caught !! eating meat on a friday eh ?”.. She looked at him and said “There’s f*ck all meat in your sausages, they’re full of sawdust, so jist geez them and stfu”.

He meekly obliged

Hi FB i think Bobby is in talks with Lenny, if Fletcher can get a one year contract, who knows

Fairhill bhoy

ASWGL-think Bobby would be pushing it,but fair play

HI GARRY, when i was driving i had a delivery at leeds market every other week, there was a chippy there that served the best fish and chips outside of scotland, i volunteered for that job every time it came up,,another true story??

big packy

HI fairhill bhoy hope you are well?

Garry

BP
There is a huge Scottish community in Leeds, as well as Irish. My uncle could buy all Scottish produce in Leeds, with one exception, nae well fired crispy morning rolls. A skwerr slice in a soft bap was never the same.

GARRY?

Thanks Jim. Will cheer him on tomorrow. Have been out all day, popped into the pub beside his Lucky Break club in Clydebank.

Am i right in thinking the lge cup has no sponsorship, coming to think of it i am sure the Scottish cup has none either ? I think the lge cup should be moved & only played provided conditions have not deteriorated or postponed for the season.
To provide wiggle room or a safety net for fixtures which will likely be affected due to Covid.
I also think European ties will be affected with no flights in or out of countries most likely from time to time.

Is there a plan or is it hope for the best ?

Hi FB ??✌

They are all winging it regarding the virus. From top level politicians down. Nobody has a fecking clue. It will either miraculously disappear as Trumpet POTUS thinks, or it is the end of mankind as my paranoid daughter thinks. Hopefully somewhere in between.

Fairhill Bhoy…I’ve wanted a tat for about 35 years now and have never been able to decide what to get or where to put it as it’s so permanent, that ruled out the missus’ name…but she’s actually still hingin’ aboot!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I thought about portraits of the kids but was always worried they would look like caricatures of my kids, and I’m not sure they’d appreciate their coupons on my butt!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Well done, Fairhill Bhoy – and it sounds like it was worth the pain! There’s no better tribute to your beautiful grandkids!!

Garry ?

Thought as much, hope you are well mi amigo ??✌

Twisty

Fairhill Bhoy
I think you’re a decent golfer yeah?

Well definitely relative to me you’ll be good. Vg.

I like to have a game even though I’m hopeless.

One of my twins is getting right into it. Hits the ball quite well, which is probably not surprising as he’s a big lad. 6’3plus and fairly powerful.

Howevah…..

He has a wild fade . Every other drive goes wickedly wild to his right. ( he’s a right hander)

Occasional hook ( equally wild) but generally it’s a draw to the right.

He’s looked at a few online videos but not got it under control.

Any ideas??

McCaff

Here ye go, FB…
