Project Manager?

Celtic edged past lower league opposition last night with two of the new guys making an appearance.

The absence of scrutiny

I was not expecting much to come out of the Honest Mistake Symposium in Perth.

Brexit and real liberation

A century ago the Westminster Parliament was the legislature of a global superpower.

Bitter from America

The news that Celtic have moved to sign American Andrew Gutman caused some anguish in the Blue Room.

Mr Gerrard and the Blue Room

Firstly, I hope that 2019 is everything that you need it to be for you and yours.

My 2018

Well, it’s that time of year again. How was 2018 for you? This is my review of the last 12 months.

Yesterday was probably a turning point in a title race that shouldn’t even be extant in the first place.

My happy midwinter

From now on the days will get longer in the northern hemisphere.

The fact and fantasy of the January sales in Glasgow

I reckon that it is a rare enough event that Celtic have lost two games on the bounce under Brendan Rodgers.

Rugger Guy asks a question

I received this from Rugger Guy this afternoon and I think it is worth sharing.

Of creditors and middlemen

The directors at a football club can bring several things to the table and one of them is their business contacts.

Seasonal affective disorder at Sevco might need a super hero

December can be a testing time on Planet Fitba. The weather isn’t the best and playing squads start to suffer from attrition.

The starvation empire

History forgotten is a betrayal. The relationship between famine and the British Empire appears to be more than coincidental.

A grenade made in South Africa

I’m told that it is a commonly used technique in the courtrooms of South Africa.

Brendan the dominator

It is perhaps worth taking a step back this Monday after the fireworks of a cup final.

Dave has a big week

Earlier this evening a trusted Ibrox source emerged from a week of Purdah.

Telling the truth and falling out with The People

I usually have to wait for a period of time before a story of mine is vindicated by events at Ibrox.

Big Mike tells his guys to wait

When is a High Court injunction not a High Court injunction? Quite a few Sevco observers have been bemused at the apparent ability of the basket of assets to carry on regardless.

Lisbon, Leipzig and interesting times

The last time I watched a Celtic match in O’Gilins Irish Pub in Lisbon Tom Rogic settled matters with two minutes to go.

Ground Hog Day and the joy of meeting your characters

Just a short communiqué from the Web Summit. I was happy to hear from a trusted source yesterday afternoon.

Web Summit 2018

For me, this time of year means Lisbon. The Web Summit will be here for the next decade and you have to say that Dublin dropped the ball.

Celtic make progress and go in for the skill

Of course, it is always about the next game. That is cliché precisely because it is undeniably true.
