Looks like we'll make it to August before we all get knocked out of Europe this year!

And conceded.
Of course.

I didn't realise the keeper that's been letting in all the goals is on Liverpool's books and went out on loan to try and work his way up their pecking order.

Seriously, if you ever visit Glasgow try to count up how many club shops for Celtic you see. There are even a few Rangers ones left (a club that used to be Celtic's main rival before it defrauded the taxman and was wound-up).

You could say Hearts played a bit dirty (I'd contend most of them were "good yellows") or blame it on the grass length, but with the ball we were playing great football. Uche has been a find and a half.

Hearts competed better for every ball. Worthy winners.

Naismith is a rat bastard sad excuse for a hard man. He's also stupid - Hayes being injured improves Celtic.

I'd like to be able to support Celtic in Europe - not just for the sake of the coefficient but because I actually like to see Scottish clubs doing well - but the money gap it creates is so bloody ridiculous.

Don't worry we'll have a lot less money this season - I'd rather be in the Europa League anyway.

The good news for the Gers is that Progres Niederkorn were put out by a goal in the 4th minute of extra time.

Tie of the round though was Zenit vs. Dinamo Minsk, positively Hibslike, https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45216364

Scottish Country Twerking (Tom D.), Thursday, 16 August 2018 20:50 (one year ago) link

So it seems that the brief tenure of Lafferty being "our c**t" is over and he is now back to "a c**t".

Ideally we reinvest the funds in a defender pronto since Berra is crocked for most of the season. Someone the right side of 30 would be ideal.

Gareth McAuley would work short term but hmm, longer term? Don't want another Hughes.

Alternatively, if the Ross Callaghan plus cash rumour is to be believed, on the attacking front I am really interested in how Shankland would fare in the Premiership.

Minister of the Pillow (fionnland), Wednesday, 22 August 2018 11:03 (one year ago) link

oh hello new thread!

I reckon Berra's a much bigger loss than Lafferty. I fear Shankland would be yet another Gavin Reilly / Dennis Wyness figure.

Rangers through despite having two men sent off. I say two men, but one was Morelos, so more like one man and a big baby.

Celtic just announced the signing of Armstrong Okoflex.

We signed him in July, he's 16 and won't get a look at the first team.

Bright new dawn at Ibrox - park the bus, pin your hopes on Allan McGregor and occasionally hoof the ball upfield... to Kyle Lafferty. Are you Walter Smith in disguise?

Scottish Country Twerking (Tom D.), Sunday, 2 September 2018 17:13 (eleven months ago) link

Talking of Kyle Lafferty, I somehow missed this little nugget from his time with Palermo:

He scored 11 goals in 34 matches to help the club ascend to Serie A as champions in his only season, and won the Fans Player of the Season award. However, club president Maurizio Zamparini called him an "out-of-control womaniser" and claimed that this lifestyle resulted in him being sold.[26]

Scottish Country Twerking (Tom D.), Sunday, 2 September 2018 17:49 (eleven months ago) link

He told Italian radio in 2014: "He is an out-of-control womaniser, an Irishman without rules. He is someone who disappears for a week and goes on the hunt for women in Milan.

"He has two families with six children, he never trains, and he's completely off the rails. On the field he's a great player, because he gave us everything he had and more.

"In terms of his behaviour, however, he is uncontrollable. My coach told me he cannot sort this player out, so he has to go."

Kept Paolo Dybala out of the side too haha.

I always say I have but I don't really mean it. This is as disengaged as I've ever been with the national team.

From WGS saying we were genetically unable to compete (years after taking the job and even more years after being a wee tiny guy who scored against West Germany in a World Cup) to the shit show that was Eck's appointment to the all time low of Kazakhstan I think I'm maybe finally done with them.

If the referee hadn't shat it, Brown would have got three Rangers players sent off, that would have to be some sort of record.

Angry Question Time Man's Flute Club Band (Tom D.), Sunday, 31 March 2019 20:38 (four months ago) link

Brown hit in three separate off the ball incidents (one of them off the game) and he's named by Andy Walker at the end as someone who could face action afterwards. For smiling and celebrating presumably.

Rangers are garbage. We were almost as bad for 20 minutes.

Edouard's best game in a while and when you add his two last minute winners in the past few weeks he's carried us over the line.

Treble treble!

That was a nervy final, Hearts played really well - bossed midfield for most of the game quite comfortably.

French Eddy seems completely lacking in nerves. His goals since Lennie arrived have been huge - no Eddie no treble.

I'm not convinced by our football since Lennie came back and I'm worried he's been employed as a cheap option - not just in wages but in summer transfers. Any of the other names linked with us would have wanted commitment in terms of investment but imo Lennie would take the job no matter what.
