We're going from bad to worse. To lose nine goals to Artmedia and Murderwell is unbelievable.

When we met after the Scottish Cup Final, Dennis suggested that we should get rid of most of the first team. I disagreed, argueing that we need some continuity. I was wrong. The experienced players are simply not performing. I'm not sure if its because they're past it or maybe they don't like Strachan. But not one of them has kicked a ball.

And that leaves the new signings - none of whom has played well and one of whom should be shot - and the young Celtic players - who, as we know, flatter to deceive.

I have a terrible feeling of deja vu. It's like re-run of the Macari days. We stagger on for a while with Strachan, wasting money on useless players, only to eventually sack him and begin a process of rebuilding. I really hope I'm wrong.

Bye the way, Artmedia are a good bet on Tuesday.

Be positive at least performances cannot get any worse. I thought Telfer and Maloney got pass marks. I couldn't blame Marshall either. But what about this bloke Camara? Will he play on Saturday? I thought he was suspect at three of the goals and I am beginning to wonder if he will play again.

All aspects of the team were awful. Could we score 5 to get into extra time? I am not giving up hope - early goals could change the tie. But it is a dreadful thought to have no European football at all this season.

Make Poverty History

I went through to Edinburgh on Saturday to join the Make Poverty History march. The weather was fantastic and it was a great day.

I got home in time to see the last bit of Live8 from London. The Pink Floyd set [MOV] was great.
