God I felt bad about the cathro era. Really didn't want brainless fitba men to be vindicated, a successful cathro could've precipitated some new thinking in Scottish fitba.

Stevie May's back in the spfl with Aberdeen, he's done fuck all/been injured since he left but could see him bring a good signing for the dandy dons.

yeah absolutely. It happened not to go particularly well for him, but that doesn't mean kris boyd isn't an absolute fucking cretin.

May's squad number was a cute touch

I didn't spot this thread had been started! Again, no season ticket for me so not much to say other than it's nice to be three for three, great to see Michael O'Halloran back wjere he belongs and I'll probably be quite sad when Stevie May knocks in a hattrick against us. His Aberdeen shirt would be a nice touch if he hadn't already had May 17 ;)

Hello! And yes, positively Cantona-esque from Pedro. Not quite in the same league as Mad Vlad, but everyone's got to start somewhere.

Another easy Champions League group for Celtic, I see. And more opportunities to hate on Neymar and Dani Alves. And Arjen Robben.

this is an actual proverb weirdly enough. it rung a bell so i gave it a wee google. it's arabic, referenced in the title of a truman capote book (he apparently got it from andre gide), and jose mourinho has previously used it in a press conference a couple years ago, so maybe it's more popular in portugal

Big Eck currentlly odds on fav for Ibrox. Hard to tell how that will go down with the bears.
I'm fairly confident he could make them a solid second within a year - not sure if that's acceptable to People who have somewhat loftier ambitions.

If that was Derek McInnes' way of showing what he can do with a team at Ibrox, he's welcome to the manager's gig.

Saw approximately ten tedious minutes of the first half of our game due to Celtic TV's complete ineptitude, delighted to get away from there with a point.

Looks like McInnes set up a completely new formation and strategy against the team that lost to Dundee and Hamilton. Anyone paranoid would think he was throwing points to Glasgow before moving there...

Hearts made it a physical battle early on and Celtic shat it.

Our defence has had this in them all season, never imagined Lafferty would be the one to expose it.

There's also some weird thing going on where the pitch is ridiculously slippery but only for Celtic players.
