Some Light Relief-ESTADIO-style!

Things are getting strained in Intellectual Corner.

There are pictures, photographs, paintings on the walls, off the walls;  they don’t stay in one shape, one set of colours, one size. They zoom around the room, passing the thought filled clouds that form and grow, burst into tears and soak the floor beneath that is grass sometimes, laminate, stone, crumbling clay.

Suddenly the tears dry, the sun breaks through as a face, a smile, a raucous laugh fills the space.

This is where I exist, live, survive, thrive…well most of the time;

Beyond the front entrance to this cave or tunnel called ‘Inmahame’ which lies in a treacherous mountain range called ‘Allinmaheid”, wends a street, with entrances to a hundred ‘Inyerhames’ from where weans by the hundred spill out and shout and dance and skip wae ropes, play keepy up and tell each other tales of pictures, photos, clouds, rain and raucous laughter.

And then there is the back of the cave! 

No one ventures beyond the impenetrable black almost solid spiked, padlocked, electrified, anti-climb painted barrier that mostly hides the ‘beyond-world’ where we know….just know….are absolutely convinced…lurk and plan and plot the beasts of the night, creatures of Tartarus, mixing in their cauldrons of hate a recipe of terrifying revelations that when served will cause your eyes to drip acid, your pores to boak vomit and your bones, teeth, heart and soul to twist in a silent scream of eternally recurring anguish and pain.

And yet …are we sure? For there are holes; little transient gaps that just occasionally a beam of photons traverse and paint with a smile or frown an even more temporary and incomplete vision of that alter-existence on the wall or the ceiling of our own tunnel. 

And then as we stand there, staring at that wall of mystery, we know….are absolutely convinced…..keep us safe, we smile inwardly at our stupidity and turn to go back to the comfort of our own fiefdom; when, with our back to the unbreachable barrier, we hear a ‘clink’ in the gravel. A shiver teases every nerve and we turn to face whatever is challenging us…..and there it lies on the earth, not some other-worldly invader or terror……much, much, much (you get the drift) WORSE………….

Having said all of that, I needed a new wallet so I went across to Argyle St and bought this wan!

That’s the stuff….we can break away…

Exceptional!

Saltires en Sevilla

I watch the distant lights on the runway
Disappear into the evening sky
Oh you know I’m with you on your journey
Never could say goodbye

It’s not the sun you’re trying to find
Something else is on your mind
You need a little space and time
To break away
It’s not the place you’re going to
It’s just a phase you’re going through
Though I won’t stop you I don’t want you to

Break away
Fly across your ocean
Break away
Time has come for you
Break away
Fly across your ocean
Break away
Time has come

For you to awaken in another country
Greet the morning under foreign skies
Leaving me to face another Monday
It’s not easy to get by

It’s not the sun you’re trying to find
Something else is on your mind
You need a little space and time
To break away
It’s not the place you’re going to
It’s just a phase you’re going through
Though I won’t stop you I don’t want you to

Break away
Fly across your ocean
Break away (breakaway)
Time has come for you
Break away (breakaway)
Fly across your ocean
Break away (breakaway)
Time has come for you

Nice to read musings from estadio this morning.
Fan,
We’ll agree to disagree on turnbull. I don’t think he provides enough, especially in big games but let’s see how the season pans out.

Love the West Coast Dadaism.

Estadio,

Thoroughly enjoyed that, thank you

Good morning, friends and good stuff this morning.

Aye. Absolutely, that’s the one I was hunting for 🎶

Getting down to football matters and Thursday’s game i feel we are not equipped to compete in Europe yet.
Our oft used midfield trio of Calmac ,Turnbull and Rogic has neither the tackling or positional patience to make it difficult for opponents.
Also as tiredness takes its toll our play ends up spread out too much giving opponents time and space to hurt us.
Soro is too impetuous and chases aimlessly.
McCarthy may be the answer but fitness and gametime lacking.
Joe Hart and our defense are going to have to stand tall.
Ange could be more pragmatic and set up a more defensive style with quick counters.
Made more difficult without Kyogo though.

Saltires en Sevilla

Fan

Totally agree – that mid is likely to grab us a goal anytime/anywhere.

Usually the first goal of the game.

Then we get dusted by smarter opponents.

Was kinda hoping for something special in January window…

BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

SALTIRES

I suspect that AP had discussed with Dom a couple of players that we could sign from Japan,and possibly S Korea,in the January window-the end of their season.

If so,and the club make no move in that direction,we will probably be looking for another new manager.

Still,you never know-Howe might be a bit less inclined to turn us down this time(!)

A friend bought me the new celtic wallet as a gift, But its not the one with the Lisbon Lions theme when you open it .
Its a panoramic view of the stadium from just abouve the tunnel, Still a lovely and appreciated gift.
She even hanseled it, A pound and a 50p coin. Just for luck.JG.

ASWGL, In the past couple of days whenever I go to post my first post of the day, I have to re-enter my details. I think that’s what happened to junglegerry there. It’s easy to enter your name rather than your moniker.

Afternoon Everyone 👋🏻
Bit of light relief, right enough from Estadio 🙏🏻
Then a lovely post from SES and Jobo.
Gallagher & Lyle,normally associated with Largs, I was astounded to discover ,Grammy Award winner, Graham Lyle was born in the same place as Big Packy 😱 Bellshill Maternity 😂
Tam McGuinness ( McGuinness Flint) has a nice wee anecdote regarding one of their ( Gallagher & Lyle) songs.
Used to wind up the DeadyBears with this:-

Estadio,
Thanks a million pal. That front page is yours anytime.

Was pretty busy yesterday but last night had a peruse of Celtic cyberspace.
I must admit I was terribly disappointed.
The fans aren’t united at all.
Still read comments such as,,,
How much did you cough up,,
Never supported the board, I just go for the team,,
Maybe he wasnt good at his job,,,
Solid evidence please,,,

I had hoped Domgate would bring us together with renewed vigour to tackle our bane, sorry our board, but no. It’s not happening at all.
Such a pity.

The club is destined for mediocrity.
First the Irish, then the principled natives will drift away.

Celtic was never ever destined to be normal.
Ireland’s a special place
Maradona was a special footballer
Celtic is a special club

To lower that club to an also ran, just a normal club, would be a travesty.
A crying shame.
A veering away from what the club should have become.

Dermots greatest sin, could be reducing Glasgow Celtic to a normal club.
At the moment we are a club like any other with a great history.

Shut up and pay up,,
Or
Stand up and speak up
I know which one appeals to me more.

Many fans need to grow a set.
This isn’t good enough, and until we are a club to be proud of again, it’s not good enough.

Hail Hail

The Real McCoy

Aw Jobo,
Lovely sentiment and pleased you have fond memories of your brother-in-law singing.
I tend to remember lost friends through music memories too.
One in particular was an older guy who loved to sing in the pub when he’d had a few.
I remembered him singing in the clubs back in the 70’s and he was very good.
Went in to the pub one evening and the young team, ignorant of his past, were ridiculing him. After a few rebukes I encouraged him to sing to his content.
A lovely kind man, fondly remembered 🙏🏻
Jim the Tim might remember this one.

I watched a really interesting video on youtube last night.
Chuck Feeney, The Secret Billionaire. What a man, a saint in my humble opinion.
I had not heard of him until i stumbled on his story last night, A must watch even people like Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are in awe of this man, Give it a watch if you are stuck for something to do of an evening.
No Spoilers, only a wee recommendation JG.

Sorry about the double Hugo

Agree about Turnbull……hope he comes good.

ASWGL

Well today’s leader was uhmm different 👍 Nice wallet too..

The Gallacher & Lyle reference reminded me of a good friend now sadly deceased, i borrowed his G&L Album and he complained he got it back scratched, he was Tony Fitzpatrick (St Mirren CEO) younger brother Paul, think we tried to sign Tony around 1976 too. Paul was a tremendous guy and had a great sense of humour, we got into an argument about how i’m uber careful with albums, and that i couldn’t have scratched his Album, and he said it now jumped so much that the first Track “Breakaway” jumped to track 4 “Heart on my sleeve” 🤣

I think Andy Fairweather Lowe sung on that album too from memory.

Jimthetim I had a look at the site settings, I’m unsure what caused the JG glitch but I have tweaked a couple of settings that I hope fix it.

When you set this site up it was to unite the support under a different viewpoint. You found yourself compromised though when your sidekick had to veer away from the boycott method to drive the board out, because he himself found himself on the different side of the fence from his family.
Though you still personally favour this method and credit to you for doing so, the same ‘probity’ as mentioned on here frequently today cannot be applied to BMCUW who has sold out.

You gave up trying months ago Mahe but said you would continue the site as it’s a good place for a bit of a crack. Your words.

I therefore think to be critical of other fans today for not being united is a bit rich to be honest.

Look closer to home buddy.

We started the site as a protest against the treatment of BR in favour of PL. That much was clear at the time,and my article the day after BR resigned made it clear that while I was furious about BR walking out on us,I also made it perfectly plain where I considered the blame to lie.

That is not selling out.

I have been clear from Day One-and a lot earlier on CQN,for instance-that I despise this board and in particular how it was in thrall to PL. What I have always had to consider though is that we love our club,we had posters of our stars on the wall. Not one of a board member though.

So if you think I’m a sell-out for saying that people should be able to make their own minds up,maybe discuss things at the game with family and friends,so be it. But I’ll never tell someone that he or she cannot do what is important to them just because my principles are stronger than theirs.

They aren’t,as it goes. If I still stayed back home,I too would have a season ticket-as I’ve made perfectly clear over the years. Still outside the tent though.

For me,the current-and past-boards have damaged the club. Sure,we can boycott-but then we would damage the club more than any of those office holders.

Short of a mega Euromillions or a benevolent billionaire,we will not regain control of our club. But we never had control in the first place,not since it was incorporated all those years ago. Sure,call me a sell out. Do your worst,like I care.

Meantime,I’ll still go for the merchandise boycott as a way of pulling the board up. That’s just me,but if you have a better idea you can fire it in here.

ASWGL

Me ? I’d ban windscribe and surfshark and any other VPN or TOR connection from commenting on the site, so any vindictive person can’t hide behind IP masks and churn out spiteful ramblings instead of actively engaging in thoughtful discussion and exchanging ideas in a courteous manner, which I still believe is what the site was setup for.

But then that’s just me.

BOBBY MURDOCH'S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

ASWGL

If I knew how to do it,I would! Problem is that MAHE and I like the idea of the site being open access and as you know,we have a couple of people who shift their VPN and that restores access. Until the next time.

Heyho,the site is bigger than the occasional spite.

BMCUW every proxy/tor/vpn/ IP Address is detectable and can be blacklisted, even on this software, but like I say that’s just me, I have no patience for trolls and posters who cannot be courteous.

Ultimately I also respect your decision(s).

During HT had a watch of Ryan Christie, doing nothing and headless chicken stuff. Take it that team gave him a whack to sign on, must be weird playing to such a small home crowd.

I had notices from my internet provider that I had used up my allotment for the month.I don’t understand bites mega. bites and all that stuff ,but I went in and checked my usage, it seems when I updated my MacBook Pro the other day the new update was eating up all my time, on Sunday alone it ate 100 and I have 300 for the month. As you have guessed I am not a techie ,but just a warning to other Mac users check your usage to make sure it is not eating up your internet time..I called my provider and because I am a long time customer I now get unlimited Internet with a reduced monthly rate than I was paying before
Good blogging today ,I don’t mind the interlopers, but then again they are not going after me. We are all adults here and can separate the chaff, as someone said we all have an opinion. The reason we are all here is Celtic, and like players we watch we all see something different, and after reading someones opinion we often look at that player to see if we agree.
Good music today for an auld guy like me to listen to.Rainy day in Vancouver ,they dropped the Forest Fire State of Emergency Disaster Code today

Bada 825,
Honestly those Huns are so jammy. How many times do they play teams that have injured star players or just sacked their manger or COVID outbreaks. Incredible good fortune or devil worshipping!!
