Nostalgia - Celtic Park in the 70s

Did any of you attend this match? I've been trying to work out who the opposition were. Best guesses are Airdrie or Ayr Utd. Possibly a European game (Upjest Dosza or Basle) in 73/74 when floodlighting was restricted due to the oil crisis. Maybe even a pre-season friendly against Leeds.
Great footage anyway.

500 hits a day

How come this blog is suddently so popular? It's averaging 500 hits a day (700 on Sunday). Either Tony's paranoia is beginning the influence people or we're getting a lot of traffic via Google. The only story I can think of that might attract a lot of attention is this one.

Kilmarnock - 1 Celtic - 5

Scott McDonald celebrates with Celtic team-mate Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink
Much better performance yesterday. First time I have enjoyed watching Celtic in a long time. There was an improvement almost immediately - much more movement and hunger than there has been for some time. Although one or two players (such as Naylor) still give a good impresssion of someone who is bored in their job. Samaras looked good. But so did Cashlink at the start. So time will tell. But we appear to have strengthened during the transfer window - and TFOD haven't.

It's worth remembering that Kilmarnock are rank.

Another friend dies

Denis's brother-in-law Lenin, died today. He was a real friend who was always fun to be with. I remember some great visits to Newcastle/Durham where Lenin and Margaret always made us welcome (even if they did make sure we did the dishes). I'll miss Lenin's dry sense of humour.
