NO, unlike United and Chelsea and whatever team. Rangers and Celtic fans share mainly one thing in common, they are Scottish and brought up as fans who moved abroad.......different from some African or Swedish or whatever person deciding to "support" one of the fancied teams.
Funny how you never see any of them with Swansea, WBA, Everton or the other teams who have won nothing and no well known players......plastic fans indeed.
Lots of Bla Bla Bla,
It's nothing to do with this or that, it's an old firm game it will be as usual, the winner takes all the laurels and no place for losers.
Celtic for the treble, Rangers trying to stop them.
This is a classic not to be missed.
Camshy can dig Sky all he wants, but this is the game of the weekend in the UK, lets hope it is an advertisement for Scottish football.
My issue with Sky is not that they show live football, its the vast amounts they give to our English friends over the border which has created these "super" clubs....well money wise anway.
I agree its the biggest game of the weekend in the UK, down south they will be playing for positions in the league and money.....here its not money, all about the things that make football important to people and also the players too and that is why this game is not matched for intensity.
Sterling , Stones, Jesus, Sane are all relatively young.
I had forgotten about Kelechi Iheanacho who first signed for the Academy team.
There are 5 (FIVE) Youngsters. I think Pep has shown if you are good enough you will get your chance at City
Get their chance.....you are kidding fgs Trav.
Stones bought for what 40 million or something, Sterling 50 mill, Sane 30 mill......hardly like they were not going to be getting a game with that massive outlay. Its a little different from other clubs who actually develop the talent instead of buying everyone elses.
Wee McCann has been handed the reigns at Dundee until the end of the season, I was hoping Rangers and PC would have snapped him up for the position at the club but this may have been a more challenging role for him and has ties with the club.
Really hope he does well, like Gary Neville he is one of my favourite pundits any time I hear him.
Just back and that first half was a difficult one, neither team able to dominate the half but we just edged it I thought.
Thistle are well organised and moved that ball well, Aussie lad with long hair in the middle is an absolute standout for them again but they lacked dangerous penetration in that final third.
Wee Mckay was on the end of a lot of the boo boys and it annoyed me somewhat, you could see this pressure forcing him into wee mistakes was down to our support.....or more so lack of it.
Second half and wee Mckay was hooked foe Dodoo and this change really made the difference. The jags were good in the first half but struggled to get their midfield and forward players into the game.
Rangers on the other hand were menacing on the front foot and the second goal was a real beauty with some nice interplay between Toral and Hyndman.
Wee Beerman on the left looks a real talent and seems like he has been there for years.
Bates was still a little nervy for me and that is a worry but he done ok I guess.
Holt was MoM for me though and the new position of holding midfielder seems to suit him better. Both he and Toral play similar roles with Toral a little deeper and Holts energy was all over the pitch.
The new dynamic in midfield is much better and provides far more protection to the defence.
Thought the ref was ok today although if you are a Jags fan you may be a little annoyed as we seemed to get a few decisions that I thought should have went the other way......the 2nd goal came from a throw in I was sure was Thistles but he awarded it to us and we scored straight from that throw in.
Offt dont know why anyone would play an FPS on a console with joypad/controller......has to be keyboard mouse m8 all the way.
Infact they used to make these games cross platform, PS4 could play against X-box and PC players but all the console guys got their asses handed to them with the quicker response of the mouse aiming so had to stop due to all the whining.
COD is a very poor game though with all the silly perks and weapon unlocks......the best of the whole franchise was COD 4 modern warfare. Now that was quite possibly perfection, movement of the soldier, something console players wont notice due to limits graphically and unable to modify aspects of the game.
I used to play that one competitively and it was such a good game.
Stick with my favourite though which I always come back too.....Battlefield
The Welsh, Northern Irish and RoI are all doing very well internationally
Yes they are but sometimes that happens in football. Teams go on great runs, of all those teams NI are the most impressive, the Welsh are shite but have that one special player and RoI well I couldnt give 2 shits about them.
I know what you are trying to say though Trav without actually saying and I guess my answer to that is......football is a funny old game.
Great achievement Norn and yes they were the best at that time but they did not have a massive advantage over every team in the WORLD financially which has such a negative effect on domestic leagues they were just better and I have no problem with that.
You still not getting what I'm saying bud...................and I don't believe LB would say anything bad about me, far too sensible and a great judge of character
