I didn’t see the game but, by all accounts, Boxy’s team is nothing to write home about. It seems it’s the same, old shite masquerading under different names; unlike the club itself, which is different shite masquerading under the same name. Nico Kranjcar, apparently, was the star of the show but had to be substituted before the match was finished. I wonder how long it’ll take this season before his legs give out completely. The guy’s going to end up in a wheelchair! But, still, he’s managed to contribute to his team’s 100% success rate in Europe.
Quite a bit of space round Auld Dignity there at a match that was supposed to be sold-out. But maybe he’s pished himself and everybody moved!
Revelling in his hero status as the vanquisher of Ashley and denier of Celtic’s titles, Honest Dave decided to ‘jet in’ and address The Peeppul before the game started. He asked them to be on their best behaviour during their ‘adventure in Europe’. He then contradicted himself by saying they should “live up to the reputation of Rangers’. Which is it, Dave? Are they to behave or live up to the reputation of the fans of the old club? Ask the residents of Barcelona, Manchester and many other places which they would prefer.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on the Big Tax Case next week. Already there are those that are anticipating titles being stripped but we all know it’s never going to happen. The boards of Celtic and every other club in Scotland will say nothing; all that matters is money. Even if any of them did say anything, they’d probably be fined for, rather ironically, bringing the game into disrepute. The Big Lie is the be-all-and-end-all as far as Hampden is concerned. If nothing is done, then for me, as for many others, the game’s a-bogey and Scottish football is a lost cause. Hopefully, the powers-that-be prove me wrong.
It’s going to be the same scenario with the TAB ruling. The Court of Session will probably decide that the Takeover Panel acted wrongly in calling King’s takeover a concert party; even though there’s plenty of evidence that it was. Ibrox has got some powerful friends in the Edinburgh Establishment, who rely on The Peeppul’s stupid unionism to keep them in their sinecures. We’re going to discover just how corrupt Scotland is in the next short while. Hopefully, it’ll make folk realise that independence is the only answer.
I was talking with my brother about The Peeppul and I mentioned how Phil Mac Giolla Bhain often speaks of their ‘hive mind’. This made me think of the wooden bird house that was in our back garden when we bought the place. No bird ever went near it but bees built a nest in it one summer. They were reasonable neighbours and pretty much kept themselves to themselves. Two years later, however, a gang of wasps moved in and we had to call in an exterminator. The guy had all the safety gear on and we had to shut all the windows while he worked. He killed all the wasps with a spray and then broke their nest into pieces. What about the wasps that are out and about? I asked. He told me that they get disoriented when they come back to find their nest gone and end up just crawling off to die somewhere.
I wonder if the same thing would happen to The Peeppul if their rancid new club was wiped out and Ibrox bulldozed. They’d buzz around for a while, shouting, “The Big Hoose! The Big Hoose!” and then crawl off to Ayrshire and Lanarkshire to die.
Unfortunately, though, they’re still with us and they and, no doubt, some of their fellow WASPS (See what I did there?) from NI, are going to take over the streets of Glasgow this weekend. They’re probably on a high at the moment with the DUP being bribed to prop up the Tory Government. The Towers of Rabble will have to stay only half-finished for the moment as they march for…why the fuck are they marching? It’s time this mob went the same way as Old Rangers.
I see the Daily Record has been running articles all week, commemorating the tenth anniversary of the attempted terror attack on Glasgow Airport. As soon as I saw this, I thought, “Aw naw!” as it’s obvious that they’ll wheel that guy Smeaton out again. This guy actually did bugger all but got a medal and loads of media coverage for acting the hard man on the telly once the incident was over. When the car crashed into the bollard and the flames started to rise, he was too busy looking for a shipyard to hide in to help anybody!
And, finally, I see that some Tory clown was arguing in the Scottish Parliament that the Scottish Government should be looking into industries where men are paid less than women. The only industry I’ve heard of where that happens is in the porn business. Most men that buy porn want to look at women, hence the reason why they’re paid more. No doubt this Tory is outraged that when he’s having a wee chug over the guy’s arse going up and down, he’s aware that the woman under the object of his lust is getting paid more. A fucking scandal, so it is!
