I don't know where to start. It ended as quickly as it started though. Unlucky. Now they will get stuffed on the weekend and put the Ibrox faithful into another state of depression. BTW, can ANYONE actually pronounce the name of the team who STUFFED Rangers in the 'B' Cup?


Celtic won 10 - 1 on aggregate, despite fielding a 'B' squad.......


Jinky, could you possibly find and post a picture of Rangers 2002/2003 European success? Anything would do at this point in time. :)

Sorry lads, nothing will ever outsell the Nine in a Row video.
Have you seen it?
You should get it.

BTW it's Viktoria Zizkov.
You know, like our Province's capital and similar to "Fcuk off" which is what I'd like to say to you.


:mad:
:p

Live in the present.......

Please detail Shitic's European successes over the last 30 years.
Bucky,

Try living in the present. I guess this is no different than celebrating something that took place in 1690. :rolleyes:

Rangers are OUT of the competition and Celtic are in. Is that hard to accept? Rangers won 9 in a row BUT so did Celtic. Who cares? That was a long time ago, much like 1690. I guess when there is very little to look forward to currently, the only thing to do is look in the past. Simple really.

Unlucky Blue Nose Bucky. :)

innocent question.........

With Rangers out of European competition I can assume their 'venture' is now complete for this season.

Since Celtic now play the club managed by one of their favourite ex-whipping boys, can I also assume that they are continuing their European 'adventure' or are they too having a European 'venture'?

I'd like this clarified in order to update my elaborate wallcharts, please.

Clarification

Fastshow,

Have enlisted the dictionary to answer your question;

venture

to risk going somewhere or doing something that might be dangerous or unpleasant, or to risk saying something that might be criticized.

Suggest this "unpleasantness" applies to Rangers exit?

adventure

an unusual, exciting and possibly dangerous activity, journey, experience, etc., or the excitement produced by such activities

Possibly used for Celtic since thay are still involved and therefore generating some kind of excitement?

However "excitement" and "scottish football" ...same sentance hmmmm :eek:

Come on you Warriors!

Yours in elaborate wallcharts

Danke........

Ginge, Much obliged and you have gone far and above the call of duty. Good work. The wallcharts will be updated and clarified accordingly using a new colour-coding system I have just this minute finished implementing in my weekly bathroom inventory rota.

Now the tricky bit is trying to surmise whether or not el Shamrock meant to use venture or adventure when naming this cracking thread. I'm afraid we'll never know the truth.
:rolleyes:

On a semi-related note, Celtic drew Blackburn for their second round UEFA Cup match(es). Looks to be the best matchup of the round, unless you fancy Team Krakow knocking off Lazio.

You're absolutely right, Fasty. We will never know, especially the Captain. :)

BTW, are you able to make it over for a Night at the Races? It would be great to see you again.

..............

Thanks for pointing out that Celtic now play Blackburn, Sensei. Boatrace. :rolleyes:

Captain, I will not be able to attend this year but will simply stay up late that night (seeing as I live 8 hours into the future) and re-create scenes from the first annual Night at the Races. To do so I will need the help of some volunteers; one wearing a double-breasted suit from Tip Top Tailors of Richmond Centre and not-even-ironic-purple tie ensemble that was not even fashionable in the late 1980's, the Greek from the kebab shop up the road to dress as a fireman, an ex-policeman intent on fooling everyone into thinking he has a guaranteed lock on the other end of his mobile, someone who sounds more like Tom Jones than Tom Jones and who brings his Dad and Uncle who are the only ones who actually win anything, and, um, Regs. I'm still working on the Regs character and, I daresay, so is he.

All this will be re-created in my front room. Like a nativity scene except with vomitting and a Greek.

Oh the memories...........

Your constant allusions and vauge references leave me perplexed at the best of times. Most of the time I just stare in wonder at your avatar rather than read your posts. I used to have an avatar once. Those were the days.

On a completely unrelated side note, Celtic face off against Blackburn next round.

vauge........

Boatrace,
Celtic face off against Blackburn next round.
It will be an interesting match-up between two historically good hockey clubs. And surely it begs the question of who would win a tip-off; Dwight Yorke or Henrik Larsson?

Andrew Cole is an excellent opening pitcher.

Get a new avatar. Simple.

Rather than search (read: beg) for a new avatar, I will rely on the dancin' plantain to amuse me for the remainder of the evening.

:wa:

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
-Sensei.
