Hooteanannies, strangers, and the occasional WTF!

Morning,all.

 

I think The Hootennany has become “A THING” over the years,but I only actually thought it might be a good thing if someone could maybe get a few of us to meet up and have a few beers,get to know each other.

 

It was actually HAMILTONTIM who did the work,I only turned up around 6pm and met Franny,THEBARCAMOLE. He and I hit it off right away. It happens sometimes. The rest of the crew are friends to this day-I hope!-and LENNYBHOY on hearing that I’d been awake since 10pm the previous evening due to work schedules even walked me back to my hotel at two in the morning!

 

Forever grateful,pal.

 

Thems friends. That was the whole point really of getting a few people together who cyber-connected but didn’t really know each other. A lot of them did of course but most of us didn’t. We’ve all leaned over a bar to grab the drinks and gone-sure he was in here last week-but what can be better than getting to know who is quicker than you at getting a round in?

 

I’ve converted a number of people who would never in a month of Sundays thought of supporting Celtic to,well,the right path. It’s been difficult for them on many occasions,and I’ve taken a good few too from our side who might otherwise have turned their back due to lack of opportunity.

 

And SOLKITTS and I took ATHINGOFBEAUTY to her first game,which though long overdue,created a monster!

 

Haw,Neil. See the morra. Taking the wee yin up. WTF,she’ll never keep up wi us. She’ll keep up fine. She did. 11yo and just desperate to see Celtic.

 

I think we are all desperate to see Celtic now. It’s all right for us expats who only see the lads-and my pals from the hootenanny-every so often,but there are 60000 people who go there practically every chance they can.

 

Because they’ve already paid for the ticket! And they usually meet up with friends before the game,after the game,and a long chat at half time with old orโ€ฆ

 

New acquaintances at half time.

 

Or even in various pubs before or after the game. No longer a-I’m sure I saw him a couple of weeeks ago!-naw,meet up via the Hootenanny and get the beers in. Same as we did when we were kids. The guy in front of you at the bar wasn’t a dick for doing it,he was a guy you wanted to know.

 

As a ruleโ€ฆ

 

This site is having a few minor log-in problems at the moment,as my mate explained to me in Oxford yesterday. It will be sorted. Because MAHE and I didn’t set this site up to make US look good. The site is for you folks to nail your opinions,so please bear with us.

Good morning all from downtown Govanhill.

MORNING ALL and JIM, the real mcoy from last night, thanks for the heads up about garnqueen loch,,last time i was up noticed a load of houses had been built opposite the loch, yes glenboag is certainly a popular place to live๐Ÿ˜noticed the loch has been transformed into glenboig country park, wish it was like that when i was growing up there, could see my auld granda walking round there with his stick ,then sitting down on one of the benches and taking his pipe out for a puff๐Ÿ˜

A timely article to bring us all back to reality a touch – it is good to think of better times.

Mahe
I’m compelled to say that your forceful presentation of the case for the EPL is admirable, and you make many good and valid points. Howevva, I am still a naw because I believe we should devote our efforts to reshaping and restructuring the game in Scotland where our roots are, and which Celtic have signally failed to do thus far, despite us being the largest and most influential club in the country – which is shameful imo.

Sentinels, could I ask you for a wee prayer for a work friend, who lost her husband of 3 months after a short, devastating battle with pancreatic cancer. 41 years old is no time on Earth, and the poor girl is inconsolable. ๐Ÿ˜ข

That’s exactly what it was,mate. I was thinking about how the last lockdown robbed us of a hoot in Belfast,and about how I had planned a trip home this month only to cancel it just prior to booking as it became obvious that another one was on the way. And thought I could do wi some cheering up,a reminder that this too will pass.

Mind you,I wish Oxford had been in lockdown yesterday. It would have saved me tripping over some guy’s legs spreadeagled across the train aisle and giving myself a skint eye on the way down! Heyho…

A thing of beauty

Terrible news sol kitts, treasure the moments right enough.
So Beaton gets the gig for the 17th. Ought to put paid to all the shite from the Huns that lawwell runs the sfa. In truth itโ€™ll be down to our management and players whether he gets free drinks in the crown or not. We have the players to beat them (even minus three starters) but we need to have the correct tactics. It should help that Tavernier will have an opponent with more strength than Mikey Johnson. He was totally swatted aside in the December game last year. I worry the same will happen to Frimpong with barasic. As CCB has pointed out previously very few of their players are less than 6ft and they are very fit. They play the same system every week and they all know their roles. Itโ€™s advantage them at the moment but itโ€™s up to us to solve the problem and stick them back in their box.
Bada,
I saw Scott was on this morning so turned it on, swiftly turned it off when I saw their nod to Scottish footballs existence was a poster of slippy celebrating with the caption power R*ngers. Wtf, heโ€™s won f. All. Telly aff.

Sol Kitts: Condolences to your workmate on her loss, N.
Sheโ€™ll be devastated. Wee prayer and a wee โ€˜visieโ€™ on Monday on way to golf.

Sol Kitts,

I lost my brother to pancreatic cancer in April of this year. It is a silent killer. You do not know you have it until it is too late. What a dreadful loss for your friend. I hope she learns to treasure her memories as time passes.

I shall pray for that tonight.

Her pain is shared by all who have lost loved ones due to this desease.

VP- nice winner

BOBBY MURDOCH'S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

SOLKITTS

We can have a mini hoot next weekend. Need to figure out the next one-since it is unlikely that we can get back to a game this season,we might be able to have it in early May,for instance.

Though definitely too early to plan anything.

I think if we had 20/20 vision,we would have gone into hibernation for a year. A year that we would all love to forget,but never will. A permanent scar,and not just on our memories.
