Was it not "Helmet"?

As Ollie would ken, there are lots of "Helmets", but there is only one Helmet Schoen. 

Uilleam,

 

I was sent an e-mail with an attached screen grab of the Tweet.

 

It said, 'Helmut'. McBurnie probably meant Helmet, just like he meant to score last night. Maybe Oli is a polyglot and he was fcuking with Mikey's intellectual capacity?

Michael Stewart never fails to demonstrate what a bitter man he is.  He's totally incapable of objectivity or even stating his opinions with a facade of diplomacy.

 

Someone with such a publicly partisan political and football outlook shouldn't be employed by a state funded broadcaster to analyse Scottish football.

Typo: big lad, big fingers. 

 

You don't suppose he could have meant "Pelmet", an insult in many cultures?

Breaking news reference Scotland under 21s testing revealing positive tests and those traveling on coaches and aircraft in proximity to those positively tested, having to quarantine. Two Motherwell players and a player who was at 'Well until recently(Turnbull of Celtic) have been ordered to quarantine. Three Aberdeen players have been ordered to do likewise. The SFA have issued a statement assuring strict adherence, "on coach and aircraft manifests". Imagine, two groupings of players from two clubs sitting next to each other on the bus and plane?

 

Billy Dodds has ranted about infection being down to your luck. Big Dick is fulminating, "there is undiluted fury among the clubs". Michael Stewart is talking about the end of winter, lighter nights, and vaccines being available. Neil Lennon was interviewed, he is angry, "it's a shambles", Gary Holt reminds us it's a pandemic, "don't need to blame anyone", and 'Well's Robertson is unhappy at the timings of passed information. We are promised Derek McInnes later, no doubt the source of undiluted fury?

 

Gersnetters will not be surprised to find BBC Radio Scotland are providing live commentary from Easter Road. Paul Mitchell and Michael Stewart are present to reveal all the happenings from the Hibs/Sellik game. Understandable, both Edinburgh based. Pat Bonner is also in Leith, and he has described traveling through from Newton Mortgage to the Capital. Everything in the west is closed and he is surprised to see busy Edinburgh restaurants and shops. I thought our Dearest First Minister had told us Police Scotland would prosecute unnecessary travel? Couldn't they send Pat to a game in Renfrewshire/Glasgow?

 

It's as well the soothing balm of Rangers financial results have been revealed, "their income is up, yet their losses are up too, we need to dig down into these figures" says mean bean counter, Pat Bonner. Big Dick is already feeling better, "and they made over £20 million from the Europa Cup". There, there, the fury is already being diluted.

Sunday Morning Coming Down.

 

Kris Kristofferson's seminal lyric perfectly describes BBC Radio Scotland on a Sunday morning/afternoon, particularly when Rangers have a noon kick off at Ibrox. Kris tells the story of waking up in a small town, after the Saturday night gig, the night before. He needs a couple of beers to straighten out before donning his cleanest dirty shirt. Really, there's nothing short of dying, half as loansome as the sound of Jane Lewis attempting to stimulate some life into the Naughty Step Crew.

 

Liam McLeod was joined by Billy("I no longer consider myself a Rangers supporter")Dodds and Richard Foster. Rangers home games ensures all the Naughty Step Crew can remain socially distanced and seated in a PQ studio, whilst watching SKY TV. I suspect Dandy Liam is not too happy because when SKY run a replay of Roofe being upended in the box, Liam has no room for manoeuvre? Apparently, Rangers were the beneficiaries of facing a Covid weakened Aberdeen, a couple of deflections, and a soft penalty award. Big Dick's "undiluted rage" appears to have disappeared like the dreams of yesterday.

 

Dreary, drab, dreich, ......... are the emotions issued by the PQ QM.

 

Monday evening saw the return of Tom English. There's a fire to be fought, Neil Lennon is under pressure. Kenny MacIntyre hosted, Craig Levein and Darryl Broadfoot added to the conversations. Broadfoot defended the SFA, Tom and Craig attacked the national association over their handling of the Under 21s and Covid. All three agreed Lennon remains the very man for ra Sellik job. Tom reminded the listenership of the fragility of Neil's mental health, lambasted Edouard, called two or three other Sellik forwards, "underachieving failures", and did the full symmetry by reminding the listenership of the fragility of Leigh Griffiths mental health.

 

There was no insight into Gerrard and Rangers, Tom finds the whole Rangers thing frustrating. Craig Levein offered improved psychology on Gerrard's dealing with the media. He recalled Rangers winning at Tynecastle a couple of seasons past and Gerrard and backroom staff celebrating like the league had been won. This season, Gerrard's reactions are far more measured. We could hear a hurrumpf from Tom at this opinion and Craig showed he is a fast learner. Levein got after Kenny MacIntyre, "you'll be happy being a big Rangers man". Tom was guffawing. The demands of PQ are even getting to Craig. Still, it's good to know Tom can continue to laugh.
