Here's three hints: (a) it should have been off topic; (b) Mr Rennie should get it, but won't like it; (c) it's parochial, but I don't care

Celtic fans have been known to shout "Come on the hoops" (because they wear hoops) which, when drunk and loud, blurs into "monahoops".

I am well excited about this. Tragically, I gave up my ticket for the game to a friend. It cost a mere 40 euros, but they're now changing hands for over a thousand pounds.

Mrx X insisted I give it up as she wasn't going (and I wasn't paying a grand for a ticket!) and because we are thinking about re-locating to a bigger laboratory.

Still, early finish today, out for a meal with my brother and father in law, and then proceeding directly to the drinking.

Day off tomorrow.

I've just seen a pubful of 'tics in tears on the news.

Oooh, my aching sides....

Are they aching from standing up and applauding Celtic's valiant efforts and the great publicity they've garnered for Scottish football and football fans everywhere?

Anybody know what happened on The Bill last night?

great publicity they've garnered for Scottish football

Nope in amongst the uncountable Irish flag, lost count.  There were four scots (cross of st andrews) flags, ermm great advert for Scottish football.....  Also on a radio interview, a spaniard said "I didnt know Celtic were Irish"

Apart from a 20 minute period in the seond half, it wasnt that good a game and without Larsen, Celtic looked average against a good side.

The major problem with scottish football is how we allow the old infirm to dictate what goes on and thats not whats good for Scots football, but for the businesses that are Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers.  Rant over, as this is neither the time or the place.

Yeah, great publicity. One savage sent off, another one that should have been, moaning on air about the other team cheating (HA! now that's irony). And how many Scottish flags were there? Scottish team my arse. The only good thing about Celtic is they're not HUNS!

Heh. Thomson should have been off for pushing that poor wee fella into the racing track.

However, I was talking in terms of the general achievement of getting to the final rather than the game itself.

Grind as many axes as you want but I'm still proud a Scottish team got that far and I'd cheer on ANY Scottish team (especially Rangers) that did as much.
