Celtic returned to winning ways last night but will need to show more should they wish to gain 8 lengths of clear water over Aberdeen. The Dons who visit on Saturday are currently five points adrift in second place. Lite are languishing eight points behind the Champions. Lite will travel to Kilmarnock on Saturday.
The latter is difficult to call. The Magnificently Maned Adulterer might have an inkling as he has been seen carousing with a clairvoyant in a quiet Borders backwater. Rhyming couplets predicated on ‘upstart’ suggest that she is not too difficult a conquest. I wonder what she sees in Paul’s future?
- Did she predict that Lord Bannatyne will release his judgement on Paul’s partner in hacking crime on Friday? Did she predict that King had no intention of stepping up with an emergency quantum to keep the lights on? Did she predict that The Monocled Mutineer, Alastair Johnston, would personally cover December’s payroll and had ponied up with Scott to pay off Pedro The Plank? Did she predict that Paul might require an aqualung in the coming months as the finances are all at sea?
King’s conspicuous absence won’t come as a surprise to readers of this site but it might put the auditors’ – Campbell Dallas – noses out of joint. Maybe Paul’s clairvoyant paramour can predict the quantum that will be raised in the share issue after the directors have carved up the prime cuts in the next couple of days. Will she predict that Friday is a good day to bury bad news apropos the Directors’ carvery?
It’s all coming to a head in Govania. Wallace, Dorrans and Miller are all crocked and won’t play any part in the game at Celtic Park on Saturday week. Rossiter’s knees continue to have ‘Rising Damp.’ Liverpool’s medical insurance premiums were significantly lowered when Warburton took a chance on this sick puppy. One might contend that Liverpool saw Warburton coming. Perhaps Paul Murray’s Hearts supporting (singular, minus the Jam) clairvoyant can envisage more reconstructive surgery, or at the very least a Meccano set for Xmas, from their new ‘Build Your Own Knee‘ range?
Celtic fans will have been buoyed by Sviatchenko’s inclusion on the bench last night. They will be cock-a-hoops that Celtic have signed Marvin Comper from Leipzig. Rodgers has moved quickly to address the soft centre in his defence.
I have revisited the premium content offerings. I withdrew five that were in the public domain. There are those who visit our site who can afford to contribute but steadfastly refuse to do so. I invite readers to comment on the prospect of a recurring £10 per month paywall next year.
Until such time, I will offer ’21 Shades of Grey‘ in two volumes, each of which are more attractively priced at £1.99. Volume One contains the prologue and questions 1-8. The latter should pique reader interest. Volume Two, also at £1.99, encompasses questions 9-21 inclusive.
I recommend access via Safari or Chrome which both work a treat.
Those who have contributed, in 2017, more than £100 in a single donation (I know each of them by name) or number of contributions, or in recurring monthly donations, will receive both passwords free of charge should they kindly drop me a line. I do have a list of recurring contributors but would be assisted if my most valued contributors would help out with a receipt or a date when they initiated their recurring donations. A code in itself is not sufficient.
