    Celtic FC: Embarrassed by nothing, offended by everything. Thanks for confirming that

    Thanks for ignoring my points and yet acting all judgemental. Bravo. You really needed all your academic wit to achieve that.

    The only one "offended" were you & him. International friendlies serve no purpose.

    Scotland hasn't played England at home for 15 years.

    Even for the southamerican cases, it's pretty common from clubs to withdraw their players for friendlies. Or they just pick up a minor knock.

    Everything you say only confirms my prejudice, sorry Finally got my shirt from the Tartan Army today, seems it has closed now, otherwise I don't see why they did not send it earlier.

    Than you are either too lazy or arrogant in elaborating it. Haha. You are so funny.

    I'm pissed off, tired & hungry. Thats all. So nothing special. Don't take it too personal, sometimes I'm just psyching-out.

    I really don't get scathing personal attacks because of the club I support. It was a thread about the championship and I compared Dundee's style with County, which only a pathetic gloryhunter would do....right? No need to talk about it as there is no reasoning behind it and kind-of makes any input redundant.

    Anyway, the bottom 6 are extremely tight and every game sees the tide turning - the relegation spot already worked wonders. Even Hibs, for most parts a candidat for top 6, could/would be 11th when they play St. Mirren in a fortnight. Partick will pick up the odd point here and there.

    Same for the championship - Dundee & Hamilton at each others throat, but none was capable to go to the jugular in their encounter. Scottish cup semi-finals coming up, too.

    Tasty stuff.

    Indeed, indeed. Imagine we put Hibs down on the relegation spot by beating them in the last Edinburgh Derby of the season That would even make up for relegation The CS dogfight is fascinating, Falkirk are also back in it after last weekend and Queen of the South still have a chance to march straight up from the Second Division to the top league via the playoffs- that would be some feat.

    Oh and not to forget, Brora Rangers won the Highland League last weekend. Goal difference: 109- 13. Oh yes, that's + 96. Stick yer Barcas, Rankers and Bayerns up yer arse!

    It wasn't a neutral ground, it wasn't a fair ticket allocation, it wasn't a neutral referee and it surely wasn't United's best performance, but they saw off that new amateur club from Weegieland with 3 goals to 1. Seriously, how bad were those finishes by Daly & Shiels? Not to mention Steve Simonsen, but Ricky Foster was horrible, while Moshni seems to be slower than a 100 year old Kris Boyd.

    I *did* say that our Cup run was jinxed. We'll only bother to win all when we face Sellik next year.

    Thought the first half was excellent entertainment - fast paced action in both boxes. I think the hype around Gauld is unjustified for his recent performances, 1 moment in 90 minutes doesn't merit a place above an underrated Dow per se.

    Mohsni is quite quick, it's the football he struggles to deal with. Definitly less obnoxious than Sir Elbows, Jiggy Mac.


    As for the controversy: Ticket allocation wasn't unfair in my eyes - the SFA just offered one team with bigger demand a bigger allocation. Giving both teams a 50/50 split when one part is unwilling/unable to fill it is a horrible buisness model. Thankfully there were around 20k Utd fans. Fantastic atmosphere, too.

    Which kind-of implies the dilemma with the neutral grounds - I'd gladly visit the respective home ground if it avoids that white elephant-dumpinghole Hampden. A game with a 40k ticket-demand has only three viable options and Celtic Park certainly wasn't a better option while Hampden is unavailable.

    Well Gauld rarely played recently anyway. Which doesn't make it easy for him to prove his worth, though, especially at his age. Take the Derby at Pittodrie, for example, where he came on as a sub and all the time Rankin, Paton and Gunning pumped high balls up to him he could barely ever win against Anderson or Reynolds- no surprise considering his body size and weight. On Saturday it was only one moment of brilliance, but looking back it might have been the decisive moment of the game.

    They should just have chosen the grounds a tad later, not long before the teams for the semi finals were known. I liked Hampden more than Celtic

    Both teams in the final deserve to be there. St Johnstone's first ever final after nine semi final defeats, with Stevie May, the No. 17, firing them into it- a fixture to be played on 17 May. Destiny.
