Enjoy The Silence


There are few things better as a Celtic supporter than watching an excellent Celtic performance,other than watching the highlights of course. But sometimes I get a perverse pleasure from results like Wednesday night,simply because it gives the huns in the media an opportunity to discover where their brains are. 

Clue-it’s usually the space between yer ears that is exploding at the very thought of us getting a late winner. Or a questionable throw-in. Or winning the toss. 

Malky Mackay was probably first in with the nonsense,as befits the manager of a side who lost a late winner to ten men. Impugning the integrity of a referee by insisting that he would have played all night,as long as we eventually got a winner. Muir should sue him for that. I know that if any of my hun mates in Kilwinning and elsewhere had been the ref,and Mackay had said that about them,Mackay would be wearing a new necklace for Christmas,with two strange baubles attached. Who does he think he is kidding,ffs. 

Enjoy your term in Dingwall,son. It’s likely to be your last,and it should be. You’ll be no loss to the game,nor to the average managerial IQ. 

David Tanner joined in the Stephen Craigan-sorry,did I spell your name wrong,Steven? Tough.-carousel of criticism about a few of the fans joining the players on the pitch. I know,lads. I would prefer them to have stayed where they were too,but really,I’m not sure that calling for the birch,a good kick up the arse and an SFA investigation is the kind of thing that reflects an impartial view. 

Again,questions are being asked about the amount of added time. Well,a clue is in the amount of time that Starfelt was being treated for a phantom broken nose,having spilt some ketchup on his face while eating his half time burger. And maybe the substitutions,which are enshrined in match guidelines-30 seconds each,I think-or maybe it might also have included the fact that there was no ball being made available to DT as he waited to take a corner kick deep into that added time. 

Tom English was giving it his usual pish,of course. As was Pat Bonnar,who really cannot need the money that much,and I look forward to the usual suspects having a right good go at us in today’s papers too,Wednesday’s game having finished too late for them to file copy,haha!!! A wee cameo from Boyd at the weekend perhaps,or some more mangling of the language from Rae-the sight and sound of their pain is just the tonic for any Tim,and especially this one.

Listen,this lot are raging. We KNOW the fix is in,we have known it long enough. But when you have the likes of THAT pass from CalMac,THAT cross to AR,then you know that we have a bunch of players who will make the cheats work for it. No heads going down here,I reckon.

And AP clearly knows what is happening. I’m not sure that he has worked out yet how to deal with it-this is an entirely alien scenario for him!-and he is mainly keeping his powder dry at the moment. But I said a couple of weeks ago that I expected him to blow,and that time is coming. That assault on Starfelt last night was clearly visible to the linesman,who said eff all about it. I don’t hold Muir responsible for how he dealt with that,as his linesman was the man who had the view. But no matter what Starfelt said,to book a guy for complaining about his nose being broken,blinkin’ flip. 

No,the AP explosion is coming,I think. Enjoy the silence,because I don’t think it is going to last. He has the trust of his players,that much is clear,but I suspect that his patience is being worn thin with officialdom. And in an attempt to protect his players from organised thuggery,officially condoned and encouraged,he is due to go for it,and to hell with the consequences. 

And he will have the 100% support of all of us when he does so.

Thanks for the only one who’s mentioned that the linesman should have spotted the assault on Starfelt.

The ref shouldn’t sue him. He is suggesting that Celtic are getting wrongful benefits, so Celtic should grow a pair and sue him/file a complaint …unless of course he is right…. which increasingly seems to be the case.

The fix is in. But Celtic is part of the problem. Not the solution.

The game in Scotland is rigged by and for the Old Firm, albeit slightly more pro-Rangers than proCeltic… Although that may change as Celtic have apparently decided that they are happy being known as the lesser half of the Old Firm, so Sevco may decide that they want an even bigger piece of the pie. And if they do, who is going to stand up against them? Celtic? No chance. Celtic fans? Not if the past decade is any indication.

Good summary Bobby.

We all know the fix is in but even if they succeed in winning the league, is that CL money enough😱

Poor Boydy! A man who wears his heart on his sleeve. There’s really nowhere such a transparent fool can hide. He has neither the smarts or the savvy to know when to keep his mouth closed. It’s been said often on here…he’s the Prick’s Prick! A man with zero credibility. Craigan sounds more sensible, looks more conservative, his measured language delivered in a soft brogue is much more palatable until the chips are down and things don’t quite seem to be going as hooped for…then the truth starts to appear.
Rae is worse than Boyd, Rae cannot form a sentence using English, his attempts to re-format accepted everyday language is quite incredible! How the feck does he get a broadcasting job – no, it’s okay I know the answer to that.
Tom English is…well, Tom English! Nuff said on that!!
Then you’ve got Keevins – a man steeped in the history of the Club he no doubt once supported, he’s written books about Celtic, travelled the world with them and got closer to the personnel in the Club than any of us could ever hope to only to sell out when things turn sour.
As for McFadyen, Big Packy – not our own Big Jim Packy – and Andy Walker…I don’t get them. I genuinely cannot understand how guys brought up with The Celtic can be so sycophantic about TRFC. Is it conditioning when you are first approached to work for the Beeb/SkySports? Do these guys explain that you must not upset the Blue Hordes…just in case. How can they live with themselves?Maybe it’s easy for us to be critical, not really understanding the pressures of the job, the peer pressure of your esteemed journalistic colleagues, maybe it’s easier to fall in line than make waves. I genuinely don’t get it or understand it but it’s not healthy.
The silence of the media regarding TRFC defies any logic. It defies any sense of the craft of journalism. It defies any sense of bravery. the defiance required by journalists to question and demand suitable answers. It defies any understanding…unless you are part of the Establishment the Press in this Greatest Wee Country are so hellbent on protecting.
I doubt Ange will let fly, I doubt it’s his style. My take is he’s like Big Jock…he cares only about what his guys can do and how to improve on it. That in itself is refreshing…there’s no ego with Ange. It’s pure personal pride in his own ability to make things better for everyone he works with and success will follow.

The Quadrofenians song from a few years back called ‘Thugs and Thieves’ is a perfect summary of what the majority of the so called media thinks of the club and its supporters. As for officials, same as it ever was.

McCaff, a wee story on Alex Rae as its Xmas and he’s a tosser. He’s the patron of the organisation where my partner worked and drew him in the secret santa and tells me this, so my partner buys this reasonably priced toiletries set and asked me to wrap this and a few other things up due to being busy with the whole Xmas thing. I thought to myself he’s not getting something that my hard earned roubles have paid for so I went to the pound shop and bought let’s just say a far more inferior gift set and wrapped it up without telling her I had swapped the gifts. I could imagine his face when he opened it, probably thought my partner was a right cheapskate. True story that.

Please, could you stop potential Hun readers from accusations of ‘mangling the language’ by looking at the rules on using a comma. After every comma you should use a space!

Morning everyone,
All the pandemic discussions mention the 50K crowds at the upcoming Cup Final on Sunday.
No one has ever mentioned that, in total, there will be a far larger number of people going to games the day before. Where is the ‘concern’ over those games?

Answers on a 5 pound note to …

🤣🤣🤣, nomenclature,I thought that was a musical instrument, McCaff. My moniker is actually Leon Trotsky jiggled around.

With the moronic variant (see what I did there) rising does anyone think that Sunday’s game will get the bump?

December 17, 2021 8:25 am

Anagrams, words with more than 6 letter’s, wordplays on Current Events and it’s not even 8. 30 in the a, m,!

My personal wee idiosyncrasy. Nobody mentioned putting a space after a comma when I was learning to write as a kid. Only after a full stop. So I don’t.

December 17, 2021 8:56 am

Come on now, Mr Winklepickers, we all know the English language has no place for idiosyncrasies! 😁

Heating sorted and big thanks to you for organising the necessary. I’ll buy you a can of red stripe if we ever catch up.
Idiosyncrasy you say. Hmm not sure about that. What I will say is if any teacher told you to put a space after a comma you wouldn’t have listened anyway.

I agree. I think AP will blow soon. Perhaps when the Dreghorn and Airdrie huns combine to shut crowds out just in time for 2 January… and ensure they’re back when we next roll up to Ibrox.

It’s a corrupt little loyalist country.

Tom O’Donnell: A’s an old stager, I find that the rules of grammar barely apply on the present day ‘ Writing Materials ‘ ! The need to look out for machines altering what you actually typed, note A’s at beginning of article was DEFINITELY typed as As, appears to preclude a watchful eye on punctuation.
Times move on and restricted numbers of letters allowed in some cases are one result.
Unless you are Head of English at some preparatory school I’m surprised it bothers you. If the person was speaking in an Ayrshire accent you would have even more problems!

St Mirren confirm ‘a number’ of Covid-19 cases 5 days before Celtic clash.

Hopefully postponed. Should never have been scheduled.
