Something missing

Auldheid would tell you it’s integrity, and he’s correct of course, but from a purely footballing perspective I get the feeling there’s one thing missing, the final ingredient to make this team and these times truly memorable.

 

In the future, when recalling the 21/22 season we shall picture Kyogo, Calmac and the two big lads (Joe and Cam) leading us to an unlikely hence famous league title.

 

Of course everyone’s new favourite uncle shall also enter the equation. Black wooly jumper, salt and pepper grizzle, steely confidence and the occasion ironic ‘mate’, he certainly did it his own way.

 

But there’s one thing remaining, something not quite right.

 

I finally realized it watching some old match videos on t’interweb.

 

Have you guessed what it is yet?

 

Nearly every modern manager gets one, infact it’s often gauged as a sign of the popularity within the support. Given the huge popularity Ange currently enjoys, it actually irks a little that he hasn’t received his ‘big’ tribute yet.

 

Figured it out yet?

 

It’s his own song of course.

 

Martin the Messiah’s tune didn’t take long at all to materialize. I’ve stood in the stands singing this famous chorus myself, who can forget it reverberating? 

 

Brendan quickly found himself in the same boat. The enthusiasm of his unveiling will live long in the memory, 15thousand turned up to show their appreciation of his decision. His own tune was never going to take long to emerge, and going for the fabled ten heavily impacted upon it.

 

“Brendan Rodgers, is here for ten in a row, ten in a row”.

 

I’ll forever associate Neil Lennon with Depeche Modes 1981 release, I Just Can’t Get Enough.

 

It was a very apt song. He had brought back the thunder, we were beginning a journey, some decent players were representing the Hoops correctly especially Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper. It doesn’t mention him, but I contest that time shall forever be associated with Neil’s first spell in the dugout. We couldn’t get enough, it was true. They were heady days and the Obama style ‘hope’ proved we had a leader to get behind. 

 

For Neil, a song was inevitable, and duly delivered.

 

That’s three recent giants duly delivered their own form of personal and unique tribute.

 

Where’s Ange’s?

 

It’s the missing part of the jigsaw, the final piece to cement him as a legend, it’s been earned the hard way,,,no Ronnie Deila style league walkovers here.

 

The connection between manager and support is already very strong, but where’s his own personal tribute?

 

I admit it’s a tall order given the linguistics involved, but stranger things have happened. There’s some great creative talent amongst the Tims, I’m more than aware of that, but on this occasion the Green Brigade have my sympathy.

 

Being the creators and ringleaders of other chants, they’ve found themselves in an inevious position trying to throw this one together.

 

But yet I feel it must happen. I reckon they feel the same way. I mean it’s hard not to be impressed by the man, who doesn’t want to thank him personally for his hard work? 

 

That’s the summer homework for our ultra’s. Create and spread ‘the Ange Postecoglou song’ far and wide.

 

It will happen, I’m fully expecting the 22/23 season to deliver the new tribute tune, and the support to get wholeheartedly behind it’s rendition.

 

There’s a song missing, and a man that deserves one.

 

Let’s fix that.

The self reverential thing?

Maybe make it less a buddy, what you say goes thing?
An exercise in smoke blowing.

Credit to the guys that set the site up. But be less indulgent?
They seem prepared for better than they get.

McCaff

Ach you might have a point but perhaps the reason the guys are on is that it is what it is. Maybe self-reverential is wrong, maybe it’s just reverential, or respectful rather than the disrespectful, offensive prevalent elsewhere.
Each to his own but I’ve got no problem with how this blog works and self-polices.

CFC

Haha!

You been filming me at walking footy? 😀

You are spot on. It is a very courteous place to put forward a point of view.
Whether anyone gives a shit is another dimension!

McCaff

Nah CFC you’re talking pure white!

McCaff

Was that better for you! 🤣

CFC

Whit?

McCaff

Just a bit less respectful, a wee bit more offensive! Less reverential! 🤣🤣🤣

NanaMouskouri C.sc

McCaff is a wanker

McCaff

Correct…have you been filming me at wanking fitba? 🤣🤣🤣

CFC

He may well be a Wanker Nana
but he’s obviously SC’s wanker.
So a good guy.

McCaff

Hahaha! Cheers CFC, there’s a compliment in there somewhere.🤔

NanaMouskouri C.sc

McCaff

I dunno, I’m still thinking about it! 🤔🤔

McCaff

Nana, did you catch the Kruangbin song I posted earlier…
https://youtu.be/zSWNWWREtsI

McCaff

I thought Kruangbin was just an English girl but they’re actually a trio from Houston, Texas!

CFC

Yip McCaff
There is. A compliment. ( I’d say “sure is” if I was a Feckng”
Americano.)

NanaMouskouri C.sc

McCaff just listened to that never heard I of them before enjoyed it

McCaff

CFC…you’ll like this…

McCaff

I thought you’d asked me to post Kruangbin ages ago Nana! It must’ve been a different Nana, a sober one! 😂😂

NanaMouskouri C.sc

You calling me a drunk

McCaff

Check this out, Brittany from Alabama Shakes…

McCaff

No, but I’m sure you asked me to play them yonks ago! Was the song called Jungle something? I’ll look it up and get back to you. By the time you get a refill I’ll have an answer!

McCaff

Are you back yet? Nope, you’re right! It was Tash Sultana!, Jungle.

NanaMouskouri C.sc

My family are worried about me because I see Bigrailroadblues as a role model

NanaMouskouri C.sc

Talented girl we should play that up the park

NanaMouskouri C.sc

I think she is Australian as well

CFC

McCaff
Beautiful song,
The flavour is yours, obviously
You coating with an undercoat?

McCaff

HaHaHa! I was watching Glastonbury on iplayer till 5.30 this morning, at 4.30 I went out to the summer house to get another couple of beers, for me and my girl’s boyfriend. On the way back, I mean it’s broad daylight, I’m thinking if the neighbours look out the window they’ll think I’m having 2 cans of Guiness for breakfast!!

CFC

No
Dawn is breaking now.
There is a beautiful blue palette in the sky

McCaff

Tash Sultana is an Aussie. Aye, really good tune.
CFC…coating with an undercoat? I hate it when I’ve got to ask what a question means but I’m not getting that one!

NanaMouskouri C.sc

Is it a bit naff to ask for cat Stevens morning has broken

CFC

Think on

McCaff

I’m sitting in the kitchen with the blinds open, the tiniest sliver of the moon is still visible as I’m looking across towards the Campsies…

McCaff

Caught this on Radio Scotland Introducing on Friday night, a debut single from a young Glasgow band…

McCaff

McCaff

Have a listen to this wee Aussie indie chick…

McCaff

Okay, last one for the moment. G’night guys. Nana…hopefully catch up soon, don’t be a stranger!

Morning all. HH

JimmynotPaul

Morning Wee Fra.
How are you?
I read your post and right away the old song Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do, spring to mind.
Wonderful news.
Do you have any animals left in your holding?

JimmynotPaul

Since its a very quiet Sunday and the close season.
Bird update.
A great season for all the smaller birds, weather has been kind, cold spells are the biggest danger, so loads of fledgling in my smallish garden.
First time in 14 years managed to see 2 Greenfinch fledgling, in the garden, so that was a joy, blue tits, great tits, goldfinch, chaffinch, robin, house sparrow, dunnock and Siskin have all had very successful breeding season, particularly Blue tits and Goldfinc with numerous young, the young blue tits make some noise though, you would be surprised for such a small bird. Numerous young starlings and 7/8 young blackbirds.
One of the blackbirds, clearly the runt, has taken a shine to me, when I appear the rest fly away, he/she runs towards me, maybe a good strategy for food, just now, but in the longer term, not good to be as tame as that, it actually sits on my window sill, looking in, as if to say feed me, of course being the softie I am, I do.
The only small bird, that I regularly see, that has not done so well, is the small coal tit, no young from them, I had a pair of lesser redpoll on the feeder, all through spring, too, but they have moved on.
The only downside, this season, is how much it has cost to feed them all.😂😂. My wife gave me a gentle row about it, once mid July comes, even the young should be able to feed themselves, or they will never survive winter. So cost will greatly reduce by then,until December, when it starts all over again. They are worth every penny to me, there’s something joyous, about being privileged enough that adult birds bring their young into your garden, then to watch the adult feed them, in the initial stages is magical, before they learn to do it themselves
Next Saturday, I’m away to Rural Stirlingshire, for a week, hopefully see some A listers. Like Osprey, Peregrine, Barn Owl etc. Should see Swift, Swallow and House Martins, too, as well as all the farm land birds, like Linnet, Twite, Meadow Pilpit etc and all the loch birds.
Fingers crossed for a Cuckoo, just missed them last year, they don’t stay here long, they head back to Africa late June/early July,they only arrive, usually in April, so I need to be lucky, with the timing. A Cuckoo loves a Meadow Pipit nest, to lay it’s egg, and they are plentiful there, so we shall see.

Sorry for the late reply Jimmy, was on the phone blethering to bmcuw. I am well, thanks for asking though missing Dot terribly. No animals left here. A mink got in and beheaded every hen we had and our pet ram is now up the farm with the alpacas. Take care. HH

McCaff

Not heard much of these guys but the missus just asked if I’ve heard of Peat and Diesel, from Stornoway and playing Glasto this weekend. I had but wasn’t taken by them really. Anyhoo, I did a wee Youtube search to show her. Not the best quality sound but the entrance is mental and should give you a wee giggle…

A thing of beauty

Wee fra,
Terrible shame about the animals. You should maybe think about taking up the twitching like JNP. They don’t need any looking after as such but seem to bring a lot of pleasure. Also nice for wee daisy to see when she’s older. Just a thought.
McCaff,
Honestly you have some stamina. A machine of a man.
To other matters. Where is Jota. I’m not panicking but am slightly concerned he’s not signed. All the media and podcasts think he will and it maybe waiting for the new kit coming out. Cmon Celtic put me out my misery. Also I was chatting with Paddys maw this morning. We’re no half missing going to the games. Said it kind of makes you hanker for the Champions league qualifiers. Then we gave each other a good shake!! Sod that. Friendlies will have to do. Bring on the Blackburn Rovers.

Mick Lynch: My dad, Jackie, was from Cork city. He was born in the early 1920s, just at the time of partition, right in the city centre, on the quays. My mother, Ellen or ‘Nellie’ Morris, was from a farm in a townland outside Crossmaglen in south Armagh.

My daughter has told me to stop panicking about Jota in her words … “it will be done on 1st July” not sure if she has been checking Benfica’s account dates 🙂

G64

I heard Mick Lynch on Question Time and am sure he said “I will take to anybody even the DUP” or something like that, didn’t know about his background but wondered why they got a mention

GFTB

JNP … meant to say great insight into the bird feeding … I just put out bread on the spare grass behind where we live, have told the wee yin to listen as the birds start speaking (squawking) when I head out have told her that’s them telling their pals food is on its way ….

She now listens and has started to believe me 🙂

JimmynotPaul

I would like to give a big thank you to ATOB, for making a kind donation, to the Sierre Leone Widows and Orphans. Thank you, so much, L. It will really help, those who have very little.
You know folks, I sometimes think we forget how lucky we are, to have such a wonderful community, on this blog. Well I know, I can be guilty of it.
We have petty squabbles, from time to time, but this blog is full of people who are kind and would do anything to help others and, indeed, many pro actively, live their life like that.
Many thanks, to those that set it up and continue to allow access, free of charge, at their own expense, and many thanks to all the wonderful contributors.
💚
