Neil Lennon now faces the difficult task of getting the players up for tomorrows home game against Jackie MacNamaras Dundee Utd. Charlie Mulgrew,a former team mate of MacNamaras at Wolves,says Celtic will have to be up for it, as the Tannadice men will be out to continue impressing their new gaffer, who has led the Arabs to two wins in two games.
Gavin Gunning won’t feature for Dundee Utd,he will miss the rest of the season because he needs surgery on his cartilage, and Brian MacLean should replace him in the line up.
As I write, there is no news on Celtics line up, Lennon obviously just going to ask the players who fancies it, and picking the first eleven to put their hands up. Either that or it’ll be one of those competitions where the team for the second half is drawn from the crowd at half time. It won’t matter who we pick, Celtic haven’t drawn a game in the last 15, and the moral is down at the club. 1-1 is virtually assured, although by tea time tomorrow , you may see why i never put a line on.
Personally, I’d go with the team that beat Inverness, and let those from midweek earn their place again. but Lennon will probably stick with his favourites. No matter what they have been doing, or where they have been over the last couple of days.
Firhill for thrills, as they say ,today at 3pm, with the under 20 side facing ross county. Its free to get in, but there may be a fee to get out. John Kennedy hopes his lads can continue their recent good form, and has promised all fans a week with nigerian prostitutes. Although I might be getting my stories mixed up.
Yes, I’m bloody miserable today.
Its finally sunk in that all that hard work put into the previous ten european games was undone by just one bad decision that only took three minutes to manifest itself. More annoyed than miserable, because it was so avoidable. but theres no point in dwelling on it.
Manchester City, tottenham and anyone else you can think of will all move for Victor Wanyama in the summer, Gary Hooper really wants to move back to England, and Neil Lennon fancies his luck in the Premier League in England. Open season on Celtic again for those talentless chaps in the media, who have decided to break morale even further.
The MSM, of course, were anxious to avoid any serious or accurate discussion on the one year anniversary of administration, and the subsequent liquidation of their beloved club, rangers. Now so insignificant that they have lost the staus of proper noun, and the use of a capital letter.
They wheeled out Gordon Smith, who laughed off claims it would take them ten years to win the title again. He’s right. It’ll take far longer than that, and can we just point out that to do something again, by definition , you would have had to have done it before. The new club haven’t won anything yet, including praise.
Craig Whyte, the man who bought Rangers for a pound, and was surprised not to get any change, explained why he sold three years worth of season books to Ticketus to a stricken Jim White. The interview was conducted outside a cave in the Afghanistan mountains, where Jim is forced to live because his neighbours keeplaughing at him.
When asked how he sleeps at night, Craigy Bhoy said “Very Soundly” -Jim Whites screams of rage were edited out.
Speaking of rangers, they want to organise a friendly with Newcastle to raise money for Paul Gascoigne, their former player who climbed into a bottle after he retired, and has since refused to come out. Newcastle will await a reply from Tottenham and Lazio before agreeing to give Tyneside Police the overtime that comes with any visit by the Ibrox club south of the border.
Still speaking of Sevco, rangers or whatever they want to call themselves, George Galloway, the shy , retiring chap who was on question time, has tweeted that he mentioned the new club on the BBCs top level debating show, but it was edited out. Could it be that they are not allowed to discuss ongoing criminal investigations?
Galloway has also tabled parliamentary questions about the new club dumping debt and carrying on as though nothing happened, in the same way Woolworths, Enron, Comet et al couldn’t do.
There were some great big fireballs came out the sky in Russia yesterday. Wonder if some more are about to hit Ibrox?
Booby collins,on 26 September 1953 scored three penalties against Aberdeen.Can’t find out who the referee was, but thats probably because he was taken out and shot soon after full time.
Speaking of penalties, who missed the first ever penalty in a Scottish Cup fianl for the club?
