  1. For a certain vintage Bernard Cribbens will always be associated with Jackanory. Then Wombles, then 'Right Said Fred'
  2. Careful, you're risking the attentions of the P&B House UnIrish Activities Committee with that kind of comment.
  3. My fear is that somewhere within BBC Sport Scotland Nick McPeat is getting strips torn off him for daring to insinuate that Celgers or Rantic winning the league isn't a result of their overarching brilliance and astonishing ability of such godlike managers as Gerard & Postegoclu.
  4. Saying that unless something drastic and totally unrealistic happens then no club other than Celtic or Rangers will become champions of Scotland is neither drivel or self-hating. Thems the facts.....
  5. There must be a way to link the glorious Lionesses triumphs with the ongoing Brexit related (or not, according to taste) travel chaos at the Channel ports ....... " She thinks she's in Dover....she is now !!" I'm off to run that past Julie Etchingham..
  6. Actively not supporting either Celtic or Rangers is the cornerstone of any decent human being......we should teach it in schools (fully integrated of course) !
  7. It's almost as if the media in Scotland don't want a club other than the verministas to actually win the league...... surely not !!!!!
  8. McPherson is almost the byword for "good presenter, shite commentator"
  9. Utter offensive foul mouthed rubbish. But sadly it sums up the mentality of people who want religious apartheid in schools to continue. Wallow in your 19th Century cesspit of tribal division all you want if it comforts you but don't force the rest of the country to accept it. The 21st century could be a welcoming, inclusive and decent place without delusional idiots who seriously believe they 'get abused just for existing '
  10. Dear oh dear !! That really is all the segregationists have. They accuse those who want integration of children of all faiths and none as somehow being the ones propagating sectarianism and division. It's akin to calling those who don't want children of different ethnicity educated separately racists and , as we head towards the middle of the 21st century, this crazed Orwellian doublespeak simply won't wash anymore. In this warped and shrinking little world view there simply is no room for progress and enlightenment. And talking of enlightenment I wouldn't use such an offensive and frankly stupid analogy regarding women in a post about segregated education given the Catholic church's woeful attitude to women's rights in general and reproductive rights in particular.
  11. We can but hope and while the troglodyte adults are beyond help, somehow a way has to be found to bring up future generations free from tribal divisions and archiac religious hatred. But, sadly, with the 'segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever ' merchants holding a powerful and inexplicable hold over our education system I fear that blind hope is all we have.
  12. "The Sun's Not Yellow it's Chicken" - Oor Bobby, Tombstone Blues.
  13. Penalty to both the bigots..... they are both the same and both own all refs.
  14. He is perhaps trying to affect faux working class credentials , like, you know , refering to 'ma heid' rather than 'my head'. Like you, I wish people wouldn't do it but ah'm no gonnae bust ma coupon o'er it !
  15. 'Football experts' ? You are talking Sportsound etc here, aren't you ? Who, pray tell are these 'football experts' you speak of ? Bonnar ? Biscuits Preston ? Willie Miller ? Roughie ? Big DJ ? Alex Rae ? Kenny Miller ? ........Give me Tom English over any of these people, at least he has a working command of the English language.
  16. And, as if said before, that was an absolutely wonderful achievement and makes that Celtic side by some distance the finest ever produced in Scotland. What it doesn't mean is that they are the finest ever produced in the world. It really isn't that controversial a statement. If you can't see that a side whose record in their first five European Cups is Won, Won, Won, Won & Won are operating at a higher level than the side whose first five are Won, Knocked out in the 1st Qualifying Round, Knocked out in the Quarter Final, Runners Up & Knocked out in the Quarter Final, then the use of reason seems a waste of time.
  17. Well if Alex Ferguson genuinely believes Celtic winning the European Cup trumps Forest & the Real of Puskas, Di Stefano etc then I can but disagree....Is that not allowed ??
  18. I see no Puskas, no Di Stefano, no Cruyff, no Neeskens. You are not showing a picture of the greatest club side ever. And as I saw all of those pictured above play in the flesh I am unlikely to forget who they are. You appear to be under the illusion that a team's greatness is dependent on their members all being born within a certain radius of the club's ground. A bizarre and utterly illogical criteria. My assertion that Nottingham Forest have a legitimate claim to be a greater club side than Celtic is based purely on the fact that their winning of promotion, the English championship and two European Cups in successive seasons was an achievement at a higher level of difficulty than winning the Scottish League, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup , Glasgow Cup & European Cup. As is Real Madrid's five consecutive European Cups from 1955/56. What Celtic of 67-72 can claim to be is the greatest Scottish club side to ever exist. That is beyond dispute. That they were the first British & non-latin club to win the European Cup is a wonderful feat and can never be taken away from them.......but all to that does not make them the greatest club side in the world ever. Why can't Celtic fans just accept those well deserved accolades instead of trying to be bigger and better and 'firster' and 'localer' than all other clubs ?
  19. It's the equivalent of John Cleese being quest of honour at a dinner honouring Dawn French & declaring 'The Vicar of Dibley' to be the towering achievement of British sitcom. Lovely thing to say to faithful, very polite and respectful but utter nonsense.
  20. Not if he genuinely thinks Celtic winning the European Cup is the greatest achievement in the history of football he doesn't.
  21. Not annoyed or trying to devalue achievements. Just placing those acheivements in context. Why does that annoy you ??
