Comment on Podcast Episode 4 – Turnbull Hutton by Danish Pastry.

Very good coverage of the match at Celtic Park from Sky. Congratulations to worthy Scottish Champions. And also to an inspirational DU team building for the future — and a cup final!

Those black armbands, though, together with the two former players sitting side-by-side who’ve both suffered from cancer, were a huge reminder of the frailty of life. Very touching gestures, too, shown to that little lad at the end by both Neil Lennon and Georgio S. I’m glad the producers allowed the cameras to focus on these things.

Isn’t Scottish football just better without the OF? So what ‘the rivalry’ is gone? I’d say the game is in a far better place than it’s ever been. DU were impressive. Today showed that it is not just about money, rivalry and winning at all costs.

Danish – do you want to predict their names?
———–

Depends on play-off outcomes, but the two certs are Hearts & TRFC.

If Hibs go down I expect they’d finish in the top four, so then it’s the current known unknowns for the final place in the elevator: Falkirk/Hamilton/QoS/Dunfermline.

Mystic Bob has spoken 🙂

Regarding the play offs for the Premiership.

They are weighted in favour of the team finishing eleventh in the top league. At the time they were announced, that fact was noted on here and commented upon. Perhaps that weighting was the trade off for the teams likely to be affected, agreeing to vote in favour of play offs at all …

If it all goes totally off the rails at Ibrox in the coming months, and a severely weakened team appears in the Championship next season, there will probably be media clamour for an end to the “tired, repetitive, uncompetitive” top tier. If I was Mystic Bob for a night I’d predict 4 teams will be promoted from the Championship at the end of season 2014-15.

Funny to see that Sky then went on to cover the EPL drama, which was a complete non-event, imo. Wenger called it right regarding FFP rule breakers Man City. Now there’s a tainted title if ever there was one.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…

Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!


John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).


Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
———–
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
