  1. That's exactly what I took from that comment as well
  2. Not really convinced he could to the job anyway. With our FBs pushed up the park our DM needs to be mobile to cover the gaps we tend to leave. Arteta was never quick and I assume at 34 with a lot of injuries in the past he'll be even slower. So not for me. Unless, of course, Mr Warburton decides it is a good idea and then I'll be completely in favour.
  3. Can't really argue that he called it as he saw it today. When I've heard him as a pundit before he's been pretty sensible - compare him to the rubbish Sutton and Hartson spout, for instance. That said, he's still Neil Lennon so f*ck him
  4. This debate about who'll play wide and who'll play in the centre is a bit pointless when MW usually plays a front three who rotate between the positions. The new faces like Ohalloran and King very much fit that approach
  5. Maybe, but it'd be unwinnable. If they couldn't win with "we'll keep the pound and all those oil billions", they certainly won't win with adopting the Euro and border controls at Gretna.
  6. We really missed Holt today - really short of movement, esp in final third. Shiels is only good for a couple of moments a match, which means he can be useful as a sub, but never a starter for me. Waghorn looks injured.
  7. Foderingham for me today, without those saves we'd have lost, simple as that
  8. Will they? I'd be interested to know what your information is on this point, because I haven't seen anything reported that suggests this is the case. The benefit to Rangers of EBTs was 2.5M per year. To argue that this amount made the difference between winning and losing the league is patently absurd. Titles get stripped for rule breaking like bribing refs/fielding inelligible players. It's doubtful that UEFA would accept a precedent being set where any minor financial issue results in sporting results being challenged. I'm completely sure that any attempt could be overturned in the UK courts or CAS. The SPFL know this and won't even try. The previous attempt to strip titles was effectively an attempt to make us give up titles voluntarily in exchange for our continuing existence - their bluff was called and they know there's no chance now. Stop worrying about what Celtic supporters say and put your brain in gear
  9. No, we won't face an "unstoppable juggernaut" The SFA won't go near title stripping again. Calm down
  10. .... and then they sacked him because they wanted a CEO more orientated to profit making
  11. Sheils has ability no doubt about it, but for me has always tended to make too few contributions during most games to justify a starting place. If he comes on as a sub and just makes one goal in a tight game then that's a success so for me he's best used that way.
  12. Scotland v Czechoslovakia in 1977 - official crowd 85 000 but loads of people got in by paying the guys on the turnstiles, myself included. I ended up in the Celtic end with my mate who for some reason had brought his Rangers scarf. He kept it hidden until we scored but then started waving it about which didn't really endear us to some of the crowd around us.
  13. No idea if this will work, but sounds a brilliant idea. Well done Is Thornliebank under water yet?
  14. I think the main issue is that the BBC can reduce it's NI contributions this way and publicly funded organizations should not be using this type of tax avoidance scheme.
  15. From the size of his woggle ....I'll get me coat
