The Unthinkable

Morning,all.

Well,that was a tough watch. Somehow we dominated the game,yet one man controlled it. Somehow,we got battered at every turn,yet not a yellow card for our visitors.

Beats me,it really does.

It might be interesting to compare the standards applied to the Edinburgh teams on Wednesday and Thursday when they played the two “Glasgow giants”. Actually,same result,they favoured the visitors.

I remember Willie Wallace saying that at Hearts,they always knew they could get away with that bit more against Celtic. And that it was only when he joined Celtic that he realised how much!

Last night was a masterclass. Kicked off the park as usual,nothing given. It makes me wonder sometimes if referees are actually being impartial while they do their job. I know,it’s a dreadful thought,it’s one that worries me a bit-until I realise that,of course they aren’t and there’s eff all we can do about it.

Only the board can do anything about it without incurring a lengthy ban,though I strongly suspect that AP is about to hit the roof! If they sit on their hands,despite the evidence from the stands and also from AULDHEID &Co over the last decade,you are allowed to make your own mind up.

Free speech doesn’t allow you to shout “Fire” in a crowded cinema,but being a referee doesn’t give you immunity from criticism.

Except of course,in Scotland.

Kicked rotten,not a yellow card.

Honestly,we are in trouble. Those two games in the last 24 hours prove that. They are moving heaven and earth to get the desired results. The footballing authorities are facilitating it by awarding the matches accordingly.

Our board are schtuum,as ever. Guard dogs who neither bark nor bite. We would be as well with a bliddy hamster. And it would be cheaper too.

Aye,I’ll take the points. Of course I will. But so did they,and games are running out. Of course,by the time the board-if ever-get round to complaining,it will be too late. Which brings us round to the firmly held belief that AULDHEID is right in what he says.

Which is unconscionable,when you think about it.

Packy, Magua, It’s not within my gift to excommunicate folk, but I think MIT can!
I won’t put into words what I would do to those two evil b……s.

JIM, the sad thing is life imprisonment means hee haw these days, you could murder 2 or 3 people and be out in 20 years, and if your only 20, you have still got your life ahead of you, just cant get my head around it.???

RIP Arthur the Angels will comfort you.

Brendan O’Malley was the linesman who kept his flag down for our goal.
The huns will be going daft(er)

Magua,
I’m getting the impression that Boyd thinks it’s his comedy show and can act with impunity. I worked with Sky before and he’ll need to rain in, they will sack anyone that impacts profits.

On the Kyogo goal debate it’s impossible to know wether he was offside or not?
I have written often about tv coverage of SPL games and how only having cameras at middle or end of field means narrow decisions on offside calls are always debatable.
Huns first against Livi on Sunday looked suspiciously offside but no debate on that?
Commentators never entertained the notion of it being offside and since camera angle not level with last man (like Kyogo’s goal) then impossible to tell.
Until there is better tv coverage there will be many debatable decisions.
SKY covers EPL matches with more than 20 HD cameras.
In SPL games it seems like they use 4 .
One each side of halfway line and one at each end to cover penalty box.
Interestingly Celtic installed Pixellot an AI system used by many Bundesliga clubs in 20/20.
One of the things it does is it takes overhead shots of every player on field every second so our board have the proof to call out referee’s and linesmen cheats but have never done so.

FAN, i think if he had been offside the cheating hun referees and linesmen would have noticed it,another true story.👍

Many years ago, humourous adverts ran on the telly for Wintermans’ cigars. During the centenary season, one of the early NTVs, ran a parody advert along the lines of:

“If your son has just signed for Rangers, have a cigar. If his name is Brendan O’Malley, have a Wintermans’.”

Wonder if it’s the same fella?

Seriously though, how did someone with a name like that pass his refereeing exams? I wonder if he’ll be welcome down the ludge? Is his real name Billy McSashface, and he changed his name by deed poll, to placate uppity Fenians?

The Huns probably have a full dossier on the man, just in case.

Any relation to this Brendan O’Malley? Must be his son….

Cheers. I haven’t saw that sketch in years. The look on Ricky Fulton’s face is priceless.

Still doesn’t beat the Reverend David Goodfellow ‘Lovely Watter’ sketch though. Most people assume that it was the Reverend I M Jolly in this sketch. Not so.

Correction to my previous post. Twas the Reversed David Goodchild.

Hail Hail.

You’ll remember THAT offside goal by Cadete. Never offside in a month of Sundays.

Linesman? Kevin McBride.

According to hunmedia the linesmen were Mulvanny and Potter with the former the one who didn’t flag.

“Father” Madden is apparently part of the conspiracy to “Stop The Two” along with Frs Beaton and Clancy.

Got back late last night as part of the Edinburgh bypass was shut. So not much sleep and was not really in the mood to listen to hertz fans complaining.

However said to one, camera angle impossible to be sure, your own explayer Berra? said so. Anyway I continued , did Celtic not get a goal chopped off wrongly at swinecastle, moreover did you not score from a free-kick which should not have been given and was taken about three yards from the offence.

There ended the conversation😱😵😂

Thanks for additional info buddy. A lot of work typing that and fair play to you.

The main thing I see ( that suits ma egenda 😏)

Anyone looking at top line stats will see Hertz 4 & Celtic 2 Bookings – so the ref is fair, or even pro Celts

However, we know one incorrectly disallowed goal and a deluge of hits on our players plus constant disruption on our pattern of play for ‘fouls’ that were fair challenges

It’s sad we can’t trust the bassas as far as we can throw them.

Etc., etc.,

BMCUW

Aye, that’s the very chap.

Funnily enough, that game at Ibrox was the last time that I every darkened the doors of that place. We were all going mental in the front of the Broomy when Big Jorge scored. Then somebody noticed the cheat McBride with the flag up. Goal disallowed. The Huns went straight up the park and scored. Then got a third near the end. 3-1 to the bad guys.

Speaking of Big Jorge, everyone around at the time remembers Jim Farry for the part he played in delaying the players registration. He had a little help though. An up and coming youngster named Sandy Bryson. If this name sounds familiar to you, it should. After rapidly rising through the ranks of the SFA, in 2012 this man became famous/imfamous for inventing the concept of “imperfectly registered” players, thus insuring that the Huns could not be stripped of titles won during the EBT asterisk years. Then there was the other quaint concept of “conditional membership” of the SFA, which allowed Sevco to play their very first game as a new club.

Mr Lawwell, THAT is your legacy. Cheating fecker.

Hail Hail.
