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.

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

Dying laughing at them. Utterly fucking gash, apart from that couple of minutes when Craig Gordon actually had stuff to do.

I also weirdly feel sorry for Graeme Murty because he seems a decent and rational sort of a chap who deserves better than being in charge of that shambles, and I prefer when the comedy happens to the likes of insane guys like Caixinho or bitter old bawbags like Walter Smith.

Now I can just hope that this upsets them so much that they go into freefall. Aberdeen can certainly overtake them, and I reckon Hibs might be in with a shout of it as well. Imagine they didn't even qualify for Europe. Still, would stop them getting knocked out by the fourth placed team in the Vatican City pub league or whatevs.

They might be mince but Rangers have scored more league goals than Celtic this season - because they routinely roll over Dundee et al 4-0. Their goal difference is pretty good.

Weirdly I got a bit twitchy in advance after Hibs showed everyone how to beat us but it took about 3 minutes before I realised we would coast to an easy win. 8-0 wouldn’t have flattered us.

Going to put my timfoil hat on here regarding Gerrard: the Scottish football media, which failed to scrutinize Rangers in the run up to their liquidation, and then has failed to scrutinize Whyte, Green, and King's dodgy regimes, is now braying for Stevie G - a novice manager, admittedly apparently did well at youth level with Liverpool's under 18s - and a war chest to turn Rangers around. Would have thought a proven managerial appointment - say Steve Clarke - coupled with modest spending befitting the impecunious state of Rangers' finances would have been more fitting, and less likely to put Rangers on the road to liquidation again. But what do I know?

Daniel Johns Hopkins (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 16:20 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Just checking Celtic's results for the 1999/2000 season, I think it's fair to say they had the upper hand in their encounters with Aberdeen in the league:

Aberdeen 0 – 5 Celtic
Celtic 7 – 0 Aberdeen
Aberdeen 0 – 6 Celtic
Celtic 5 – 1 Aberdeen

... last one was post Barnes

Kanye O'er Frae France? (Tom D.), Friday, 4 May 2018 20:04 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Barnes was officially named as manager of Tranmere Rovers on 15 June 2009, with Jason McAteer assisting him.[41] He got off to a disastrous start, with Tranmere only winning three of their first fourteen games. During their time at Tranmere, Barnes and McAteer were allegedly dubbed "Dumb and Dumber" by the Tranmere players.[42] On 9 October 2009, Barnes was sacked by the club six days after a 5–0 defeat at Millwall and a run of just two wins from eleven league games.[43] He has since applied to become the manager of the Rwandan national team with Stephen Garside as his Youth Team Coach.[44]
