Lie in their pish

Fitba is back at the weekend. Those of us lucky enough to have tickets for Firhill will be there glowing from an afternoon of keeping warm in the boozer whilst those who aren’t have to subscribe to a pay per view channel and hand over the sort of wedge that only Lee McCulloch’s Maw wouldn’t baulk at to watch something on the telly.And this is meant to be the national cup competition right?

Rebels-The Film

Ok, so I am trying a way of life. It’s what Elvis coined as “A little less conversation, a little more action” or Jim Slaven coined as “Do less, better”Quite simply I am going to try a year with very little interaction on Social Media save for talking about work.

This may be business, it’s never personal but it’s always Celtic.

I’ve seen a lot of stuff in the last week that has demanded action from Celtic and Peter Lawwell on various things from the SFA to Resolution 12.

Peter Lawwell and The SFA

Regular readers of this blog know how it works. You give any entity from Ibrox an inch and they take a million miles...

Happy New Year from Peter Lawwell

It never ceases to amaze how many people get impressed by old white men in suits.

Fold Firm

I’m not on to whinge about the game yesterday, we were deservedly beaten by a team who wanted it more.

An offering from a “paranoid lunatic”

Pretty much any time referees become a hot topic in Scottish football, the second film I did gets a mention and I get some new torrents of abuse and support.

Uncle Francey

24 hours in the world of fake football

I’ve had the guts ripped out of me in the last couple of weeks so excuse me whilst I spill the last remnants of them all over this page.

Sweet FA

It’s great when club football comes back, right? If, like me, international weeks bore you, it’s magical when the club games appear on the coupon once again.

The Unsung Hero

A word or two about Nir Bitton. Yesterday at Ibrox proved, once again, what a class act he is.

When history was made

Tuesday night was probably the most surreal game I’ve seen at Celtic Park since the Partizan Belgrade game 30 years ago.

The best things in life are free

As the dust settles on another big sale from the club, minds turn to tonight, Cluj and European progress.

Throwing the book at you

I’ve written (counting my new one) 14 books. Of those 14 books, three sold a lot more than other ones did that’s for sure.

The Front of The Bus-A Memoir

Well, I finally finished it. The book that was derailed by, first, mental health issues, and then a tsunami of hate that John Beaton kicked off on December 29th, is finally out my system.

The Cup

Diminishing the importance of the Scottish Cup is like, for me, saying lunch isn’t that important.

Football, Bloody Hell.

Whilst I am not a huge fan of the “Champions” League, the two games last week were absolutely incredible spectacles.

Bradley John Welsh

I remember Jackie Stewart talking about George Harrison and saying “I was close to him and had a great relationship with him-but I bet another hundred people could say the same” That thought crossed my mind when I read the outpouring of grief as news filtered through of the passing of Brad Welsh.To say I was stunned is an underestimate.

Do fans have a shelf life?

It was only yesterday evening that I became aware of another incident of stuff being thrown at a player, this time at Fir Park on Sunday.

Can you ever forgive me?

Richard Pryor once said “Forget about Racism, it’s hard enough just being a person” Like you, and everyone else apart from the stewards and police, I saw the bottle of Buckfast thrown at Scott Sinclair on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers

Tuesday was among the strangest days of my life. I got wind something was happening with the manager on Monday night and had conformation when I got up early on Tuesday morning that he was gone but still I was in a state of disbelief.

There’s only one Jim Traynor

Like a bad penny arcade, Jim Traynor appeared from nowhere last week (fresh from Level 5 disappearing) to launch a tirade against the BBC, Referees and pretty much anyone who attacks the Sevco support...
