You Do Wonder,,,
I had to laugh at Charlie Nicholas coming out all guns blazing yesterday and having a pop at Neil Lennon. Worth remembering of course that Charlie had never paid one word of praise to the club that he left in 1983,none since,and has been a serial critic of,well,everything.
Of course,he is only an expert on Celtic. He knows eff all about Rangers and leaves them alone. Stick to what you are good at,that’s a good plan.
Thing is,Charlie,I wasn’t the only person in 2004 sending text messages up to my Rangers pals and telling them how bad things were. I wasn’t the only person telling them where to look on the odd time I went home. I told them,and most of them believed me. It’s why they don’t do the Club 1872
And yet Charlie comes out with this shit,then wonders why he isn’t welcome in good Celtic company?
And I do mean really. Because he would know better than to come out with that pile of pish in a bar. And if you canny say it to people,don’t say it behind their back. Every time we get so called Celtic voices on the media,they let us down
It’s a shame. It really is. Packy Bonner at one time was our highest earner-due to seniority-still shafts us,and Provan,we paid him for years while he coped with his illness and of course the likes of Nicholas left and the next time we heard of him was when he’d fucked up his career and needed a couple of bob for a rentaquote.
Nicholas will be bang on the button one of these days,it’s how it works. As a matter of fact,I think that he does know his football. His problem is that he has a big problem when it comes to Celtic and Rangers,and seems to spend all his time explaining why they will win.
We are up against it on Saturday,there is no doubt about it. Six players in all down. That prick will try to tell everyone in his last remaining MSM gig that he knew it was coming and told us so. The Daily Express,for fuxake?
All the more reason to get the rosary beads or whatever out. Never let anyone get one over you,no matter the reason.

Just sitting here wondering….has NFL came out all gun’s blazing for Davie Provan, in the same way that he made a song and dance about, Charlie Nicholas? Ye see, Provan called it correct. NFL, does suck up to Lawwell. If NFL didn’t suck up to Lawwell, then NFL wouldn’t be the manager of Celtic. Only puppet’s are allowed in the dugout under Lawwell’s watch, Brendan was used to dupe, the easily duped, into parting with their 49 pieces of silver to rubber stamp, Sevco/RFC as the same club, then he was missed with and then proved he was no puppet and left. But, NFL walked out previously, under Lawwell’s watch, but in those day’s NFL still had his cojonies. And now, NFL has probably thought to himself, cut my cojonies off, or Lawwell will dismiss him to the, Universal Credit, Jungle. Provan knows that, there isn’t one pair of cojonies to be found in the entire hierarchy, within Celtic Park. Maybe NFL will go for Provan in the build up to Saturday. Might be a foolish move to make, especially against a foe, who has your number.
HH, off oot! 💚 🍀
“missed with” = “messed with” 👍
Just read back from last night. I’ll read the article later but wanted to post my best wishes to Jim the tim as he’s feeling under the weather. Chin up Jim and get well soon pal.
‘ In adversity stick together ‘ or in KEVJUNGLE’s case …. put the boot in! Same old boot though.
Cheers, mate. HH.
Have not read Charlie Nics comments and don’t want to. I preferred BMCUWP and Mahe,s comments that get us all in the discussion ,keep up the great posts
had a wee read back on last night’s comments…Big Jim Packy, you had the best of intentions – sometimes it backfires, move on!! Jim, despite your retiitence to elicit any sympathies I hope you’re well or at least feeling better. If there’s anything you need drop a line to Bobby!
To today’s leader…Charlie Nick is a prick, has been for years and years! A fairly arrogant, rude, crass indivivdual with an inability to properly form a sentence…his utterances should be ignored or treated with contempt!! IMO of course! 😉 🙂 🙂
BMCUWP, maybe someone in the Press should ask Nicholas about his friendship with a certain Craig Whyte back in the day!
Back to work….
Davie Provan was a top Celtic player.
Charlie Nicholas isn’t the brightest or the most eloquent of pundits. In England, he is one of a number of ex players with big clubs who couldn’t coach and whose hubris prevented him from being a team ambassador.
He made a pact with the devil and has sold out his heritage to such an extent he cant show his face in Glasgow. Contrast with Bertie Auld, who played and managed against Celtic for several years, has never said a word against Celtic or its fans, who can mingle easily with fans, who gets it, and is a LEGEND.
Back in your box, Charlie. You’veburnt your boats with me..
BADABINGBADABOOM!…s was Charlie Nick but they’re both very arrogant individuals and both fannies!!! In my opinion, of course!!!😉😂
You couldn’t have put it better regarding Nicholas. Sums him up for me.
nicholas proven bonner they are nobodies who cares what these clowns say I don’t and never will. THE PLAYERS & NFL Peter and the board will deliver the 10 and the 5th Treble in a row what’s not to like being a Tim in these troubled times.
Provan, Bonner and Nicholas not an o level between them. Why are we even talking about them .The best Celtic pundit is Michael Stewart then Chris Sutton
Talking about Beaton his Ibrox performance was always going to happen at Ibrox, His performance at a quiet “Parkers”@NoelSkytrot 😉 should be very interesting. He cant hide behind 49,200 screaming bigots this time. With the VST can you choose whether you want artificial sound ? No artificial sound will be highly revealing
The wee bhoy who got cliped on last time should be our mascot
Beaton should have been sacked after refusing to award (straight away) the stonewall penalty at Ibrox on Paddy Roberts. If you watch the replay, the camera cuts to an absolutely shitting himself Linesman. It cuts back to Beaton and he’s looking back towards the 4th Official (Half Way Line) and mouths ‘Bobby’ (Madden). He then reluctantly awards the penalty.
The next game at Ibrox he got his revenge.
A new Celtic song,new to me….,from John McLaughlin and Sir Rod…
bada bing 1 @1.53,
All that needed was Awe Naw in the Video 😁
I’ll take that as a complaintenat 🙂 🙂
Eh, Aye 😉
Beathun will never have been under the spotlight than he will be on Saturday afternoon. Expect the usual. I would play players who have no old firm experience because it’s not needed for this game.
I expect a two goal winning margin if Beathun takes a backseat
Beaton (and the rest of the country) won’t care plus, the Scouse Derby is on at the same time so no big audience.
For sure but all communication will be audible and recorded and a much bigger TV audience anyway you look at it
Good article, it always amazes me that all thereX players have nothing but praise for them, other than Tom Boyd i dont know too many X Celts in the rags that give us good press,maybe that’s living in Scotland.
Cheers,mate. I don’t think Neil needs any hauners from me,but it doesn’t do any harm to let him know we’ve got his back.
Beaton failed to red card Moreloss 3 times ,and gave Boyata a straight red card for dissent, if anyone can find another straight red for dissent, I would love to hear about it, that is our main danger on Saturday.
MCAFF @ 9-12 cheers buddy,👍
Big Shane kicks off against Finland. Kamara playing for Finland.
That’s why Tom doesn’t have a job in the SMSM media
Hi di hi campers.
Hope all are well. Hope all that aren’t well are on the mend!
It’s fair to say Charlie is in the top three of “they wore the Hoops but effing hate them now” list for almost every Tim I imagine.
That he got binned by Sky just made it more inevitable we would hear tripe like whatever tripe he uttered. Im glad I don’t see the rags there or hear the local media tbh, especially if that’s the standard.
I see Kev pointed out Provan took a pop at Lenny. I dont see why at this juncture, we are unbeaten and had a great window. He is another that would be high on that list.
The timing of these ‘attacks’ shows their true colours for any true Tim would not even attempt to disrupt the camp before a huge game.
They might have donned the strip, but the are haters aka green huns.
As such they deserve contempt, and not the publicity they crave.
As such they should be banned from the Park.
Anyway, the north and south of Ireland wish their leagues to merge. This helps put to bed the myth you simply cannot have cross border teams anymore, if the money is right, both FA’s agree, all clubs agree, then it can be done. Especially if there’s a soft or zero presence border between the nations.
Derry City managed this transition.
However the timing seems poor considering there are lockdowns galore on the old island, plus Brexit issues are rife.
But still, it would be interesting.
Would it help see calls for a merger across the water? No sure but it will offer a more interesting league than before, bad news for future Tims as the quality increases at home while the game in Alba can’t improve, held hostage by a big club, a secret agreement, and a jobs for the boys SFA.
‘ I have a contract with Celtic and Im satisfied’.
Kris Ajer today.
Good bhoy for the last thing we need is more bullshit.
Let’s pray all Hoops come through tonights games injury free and then let the real build up begin.
Im certainly not nervous. Listening to some Sellic podcasts the troops are crapping them.
Not sure why. We still can put out a great team and its one game ffs.
I smell a draw, to keep the suspense and excitement flowing.
Hail Hail from a stunning central California where the skies are bright blue and the air is clean at the moment. Luxuries I will never take for granted again.
Only problem with Ajer saying that is that he hasn’t signed the new contract on offer. If he is happy where he is,he would sign it and take the wage increase that goes with it. Same with the other players.
I find it interesting that Nicholas said he is not a sheep. I’m not sure about being a sheep but he was certainly Jim whites rent boy for a number of years. Was quite happy to sit laughing whilst Jim white referred to the fields of athenrye as the tottie famine song. Wonder if he was still sniggering last month when same said Jim white handed him his jotters. When you sup with the devil Charlie, you need a long spoon.
Thanks for that link. That was magic, fair lifted the spirits. I hope Jim the tim had a wee sing a long.
I see project big picture has hit the skids. The Irish raj will be greeting into his golf bag.
Bobby, I.must disagree Sir.
Have zero problem with a fella signing, doing job for time stipulated and leaving.
He is satisfied to stay where he is and do the job he is asked to do for as long as his contract lasts. That’s what he says and all we should ask of him tbh.
Another contract? Not gonna happen. He wants to test himself and there is nought wrong with that.
Being happy at the minute should not mean tying yourself down long term. He can be happy with his career path so far, but I think he believes himself a step above us.
Being happy to stay for this contract is fine by me, and him.
We are gonna need him, its best he is content and not agitating.
It’s good for the club to be seen as fair to players also. He was a steal. We got our worth already.
Treating him fairly leaves him as a good club reference for other Norwegians we might have interest in.
Do ten and go with blessings Kris.
Duffy looking much sharper now
You might not agree but I actually don’t think this is the correct time for big reforms at all.
We have still to see where the chips fall here and yesterdays announcement from Leyton Orient that clubs will go to the wall in 4 to 6 weeks should be heeded.
I would let the dust settle if I were thinking of radical overhauls.
The big six down there clearly want change, round one dismissed but that’s all that was, an opening gambit.
EPL 1&2 will be tabled at some stage I think and that’s when Dermot will get vocal again, sensing a slot.
Poor decisions at the back and front undo us yet again. Midfield not exactly scintillating but stuck to their. Task. I’d like to see Connolly and McGoldrick paired more often. O Shea and Curtis look like they’ll be hanging about
blogs playing up. needs a reboot
“The weekend’s Old Firm match should be free to watch on TV to encourage football fans to stay at home, the Scottish Greens have said”
Aye did yeez said the OF. We’d prefer if you died of covid.
Have the CSA and the greens merged ? and give up on that lovely lolly
Christ, if you think the SNP are anti-Catholic, the Green Party in Scotland could teach them a thing or two,
High on their Agenda, closing Catholic Schools!
Mon the Czechs
Drat, 3-0 to the Czechs oot the windae 🤔
God knows how Scotland are still in front?
Three wins in three games for Scotland,with only two shots on target in total. Bloody hell,they must be murder to watch.
Well done Scotland dug out a result there big time. Hopefully Lenny takes a leaf out of Stevie Clarkes playbook and we keep it tight and dont concede any goals against the huns.Secondly i hate playng players who are not match fit so i would still go with Taylor our new signing has not kicked a ball in anger since June. The exception to this would be that i would play Leigh we need him for his deadball skills and general all round hunskelping. I hope also we try some snap shots from outside the box against McGregor I thnk he is suspect from a long range shot i think his eyesight is failing.
What the Huns are spouting on ff
Over 200 years since the potato famine, and Scotland still suffers to this day.
What has the good Scottish people done, to share a city and a country with this scum.
The shipyards,foundries, and mines are closed, and East Europeans do the potato and fruit picking now.
They wave Irish flags,and sing Irish songs, and hate the country of their birth so why doesn’t their club relocate to Dublin?
It would be a start for the good Scottish people, to begin to sanitize our football and society in general,and I’m sure Police Scotland would silently agree.
Go home the Famine is well over, they are not patriots, and are just problem tenants with ASBO’s
who contribute nothing to this country except eternal grievance
Hope we put they scum back in their box on Saturday
Prayers said to our lady..
Get well soon..
ANTI-bigotry campaigners have branded a company selling a pin badge depicting Rangers kit man Jimmy Bell holding aloft what appears to be Celtic manager Neil Lennon’s severed head as ‘utterly moronic’.
A firm called Teddy Bear Pins which also markets pin badges of retro images of Ibrox icons such as Graeme Souness, Ally McCoist and Paul Gascoigne has been displaying a limited edition badge featuring the image as the hours tick down to the first Old Firm derby of 2020 on Saturday lunchtime.
A screen grab of the pin badge which some will no doubt find offensive
Anti-sectarianism charity Nil By Mouth are appalled by the inflammatory nature of the design, which some are sure to find offensive.
Director David Scott told SunSport: “This is utterly moronic and you have to wonder about the mental state of the individual who designed this grotesque badge.
SCOTTISH FOOTBALL LIVE: All the latest stories, transfers and opinions from the SPFL”I’d urge them to take the page and image down immediately and donate any money raised from sales to a hospice so some good might come from such abject stupidity.”
SunSport has contacted Teddy Bear Pins for comment.
Appalling stuff,but nothing new from them.
So much for hate crimes they are trying to implement eh
It’s not racism but sectarianism..my arse..
One for jtt53
Why don’t they go home?
Don’t love the country?
Calling crap on that one.
Sellic to Dublin?
Sectarian Rangers fans?
But Dermot says they are a great club I don’t understand.
We’re gonna stuff them on Saturday!
Don’t think so son, has a Celtic special written all over it.
