Mick The Week

We take a colourful light look back at the week that was and look forward to the week ahead.


Celtic raced to the top of the League after a rampant win against a poor Motherwell side. Manager Stuart McCall conceded he had no excuses and claimed his young side need to man up.


Celtic continued this great form with a spectacular win in Moscow. Some claimed Aiden McGeady lay down to his old club but we disagree, despite suggestions that this picture shows him at the 3rd celtic goal


Not everyone enjoyed it though.


While Putin cried, Super sub James Forrest was a little shocked to be selected for the new style  UEFA  drug test.


Scorer of the Final Goal Georgious Samaras tried to play down his return from an elbow injury as a Miracle but he was hardly convincing after such a great goal


There was further good news when the Squad returned home. Following a clean sheet against Motherwell and a victory against Moscow and despite questions on his mobility, Fraser Forster got a call up to the England Squad



Forster however found himself having to console his colleague Gary Hooper who didnt get International recognition despite the game of his life in Moscow.


The Cup draw saw Scotlands favourite ice Cream & Jelly Salesman head to Ibrox with Rangers getting their favoured home tie.


Lets hope ex Rangers man Butchers Inverness Caley put up more than a fight than Stuart McCalls Motherwell did recently. Heaven knows how his side always collapses at Ibrox


Co-incidentally this was same week that Charles Green was found ‘not proven’ for bringing the game into disrepute by having a go at an Enquiry his club happen to be involved in. Hmmm, apropos of nothing, heres a pic


The draw also see’s that Great Upsetter of Super Sensitive Sally, and the would be Main Contender for Campbell Ogilvies job, Stuart Cosgroves St Johnstone, head to Celtic Park


In the League this weekend, Celtic see a visit from the very skint Hearts. While admitting finances are tight, poor Romanov denies he would give his left eye for a couple of weeks without wage demands


And Rangers travel to play Stirling Albion. Now we all know what happened the last time a bunch of Little Englanders with ideas above their station over-confidently arrived  at Stirling expecting to lay seige

Click the attached link to one of the big Brasilian sport news sites. Corinthians are the crazy team in Sao Paulo, and Palmeiras are their biggest rivals – like Celtic and Rangers but multiplied by 100. After their last game there was 9 murders!!!!
Anyway, Palmeiras wear green and white. A Celtic fan wearing the Hoops went to a Corinthians game on Sunday 29 September in the Corinthians end of the ground, and they tried to lynch him – they thought he was a Palmeiras fan. He had to be Irescued by the police and taken to safety – great photo. The club, Corinthians, have put out an appeal for the “Scottish tourist”, to apologise to him and give him a Corinthians strip as a gift.
But the article is brilliant. It says “The most intolerant Corinthians fans would feel welcome in Larkhall, Scotland. The “city” has restricted anything green. Shops are prohibited from using green facades. The fast food chain, Subway, for example had to re-design the logo to avoid the colour. The colour green faces very strong rejection in Larkhall because it´s associated with Catholicism, Celtic and Republicanism. And most people in Larkhall are Protestant, Unionist and linked to Glasgow Rangers, Celtic´s archrival, who wear the colour blue.”

In lawless Brasil, even Larkhall is infamous. Rangers and Corinthians: a well-matched pair

Good luck with your CSC plans Steve – there’s nothing better than travelling the world and knowing that everywhere we go we can be welcomed into the arms of fellow Celts. And it’s in no small way down to the work of guys setting up even the smallest CSCs. Hail Hail!

Hi there,

I conducted an exclusive interview with the Celtic supporter forced to leave the stadium grounds during the Corinthians game – read the full story on my blog (it’s actually had quite some impact in Brazil, as both Corinthians and the press were looking for the chap without sucess):
