whilst you are at it, one of my favourite quiz questions is "who was the first non-Protestant to play for Rangers"

not many get this right (and its not mo johnstone )

just a couple of weeks after the brexit vote

one of the first portents of the chaos to come


but not long before, they had beaten the all conquering barca at celtic park

i'd happily have a bit of embarrassment which can be put right in the other leg if you also get a night of european glory when they turned over iniesta and messi and co and you can remember that quite happily for the next thirty years and gently put the other as a minor aberration

and any team that had Jinky Johnstone playing for them were always potentially world beaters
Me thinks we have a green in our midst.how did they get on against Hearts the other day with Michael Smith an ex Poshie playing for them :oops:

Two years ago, Celtic played out two draws with Manchester City in the Champions League; City had won every game prior to their visit to Glasgow. This season, Aberdeen only went out to Burnley in extra time after two draws at Pittodrie and Turf Moor.

I would never think of myself as one of the bhoys
If anything I favour the jags not least because of the connection with the hansens and Alan rough was in the same year as my wife at school

I like football. I like cricket . But I will not pay murdochs shilling to watch them
And I love it that the celts took on the grown up clubs and saw them off with just 11 jocks

The fact that so much of murdochs Ill gotten loot has hijacked the English league for twenty plus years to the detriment of Scottish football and lower divisions in England means that we have there a ridiculously high level of mercenary expertise and an abyss devoid of spirit or loyalty and barely enough players to pick an English or a Scottish national team

and what you call the pub football league supplied the first british team to win the european cup

and then to get to the final a couple of years later

and no english club has ever won the cup with all players from england whereas the furthest born from celtic park was born only 28 miles away

must have been a good pub
Do you refer to the team that lost away to a team from Gibraltar last season, who many a pub team would beat.
Anyone would think a Scotsman ran away with your wife Bristle. Either that or you got a sore jaw off a Jock one time. You seem to have a lot of anger, there must be some reason for it.

Neither is correct, I just consider that Scots have always had a chip on their shoulder. Denis Law was a great player, Alex Ferguson was a great manager, but the league up north is a joke, as is their international side.

To be fair it wasn't always that way. Even back to the 80s Fergie did a great job with Aberdeen and further back Celtic won the European Cup of course. Nowadays for sure it is poor and has no chance of ever recovering from what it is. Produced some superb players in the 70s and 80s.

Very interesting, sounds like he was a very bright man, I believe Burgess had a degree.
