I was trying to magnanimous there Tony, Linfield lose their home advantage so Celtic should do the same. 

A compromise – Celtic play their home tie at Firhill!  It’s Glasgow but not home.

Besides I would never tire of seeing that scary PT mascot image around the place, best ever!

I remember AJ saying a few days ago that he might not always remember exact details (like Auldheid & EJ  et. al.) me even more so.

One thing I seem to remember is that long before 30 June Rangers legal/ financial advisors? told them they were in shit street with the wee tax case, they accepted that apparently.  The side letters were the killer.  HMRC had already won a similar case – Aberdeen Asset Management?

God only knows how Regan thought this had no bearing, he seemed to believe something along the lines that negotiations were on going.  They weren’t, not even a payment plan nor size of interest/ punishment payments.  They were due.  Full stop.

Hope it’s OK to bring this subject up, if not, happy to be moderated.

There is a possibility that Linfield FC could qualify for round two of the CL qualifiers.  I don’t think they would be seeded, however Celtic would be seeded.  These ties usually have a geographical element to them, to avoid long hauls. 

The problem is the first leg is held on 11 or 12 July.  I don’t need to spell out what Belfast will be like on those two days.  It’s a potentially explosive and dangerous fixture.  Hopefully it wont fall that way and it likely won’t.  But what if it does?  What to do?  Play both ties in a neutral venue, in Wales?

Oh well, seeing as it’s so quiet I’ll make mention of the draws for the first two qualifiers,  Champions League & Europa League, tomorrow starting about 11am BST.

When you look at the teams in the first round draw for the EL there are hardly any familiar names other than the Irish and Welsh ones.  Both St. Johnstone & The Rangers are seeded so should be OK to go through to the 2nd. qualifiers.  This is where it gets a bit trickier, some familiar faces there who should be seeded so that’s a plus for St. Johnstone who should also be seeded. Good luck to them.  On the other hand TRFC will be unseeded,  the DR says it’s because this is their first time in Europe in 6 years, but it could also be because it is their first time in Europe EVER!  Heaven knows how they will do, they are such an unknown quantity now.

Aberdeen get a bye to enter at the 2nd. qualifier and are seeded.  Let’s hope they get through this stage.

In the CL qualifiers Celtic enter at the 2nd. qualifying round seeded, indeed they have the second top seeding.  This will present absolutely no problem and they will progress to the group stages and providing we can avoid Barcelona 0701 should be ok for the Final next May.040421

Sometimes after I have been in the pub I dread to read back what I previously said.  But I know there is no badness in me, and then I get a couple of posts which are supportive.

JC being one. 

I think I need help.  I had an imaginary argument with Jim Traynor earlier on.  I gave him pelters.  I accused him of the things he said in 2012.  You couldn’t imagine the names I called him.  Then I turned round to the other ‘churnalists’ present and left them without a name.

I’m not a fighter but in that moment I stood tall.  Willing them all to take me on, knowing Auldheid, JC, AJ, EJ were behind me.

Then I had a cup of tea.
