Who Would You say Has been the Best Celtic Manager Of The Past 20 I will add the accomplishments of the managers in question in case anyone needs reminding; Liam Brady - Just over two years at the club, with his one accomplishment being the epic winning of the Tennant's Sixes in front of a sell-out crowd of 7,500 fans. Notable signings included Gary Gillespie, Tony Cascarino and the re-signing of Frank MacAvennie from under the noses of Partick Thistle. His one highlight was the following quote - "I was told when I joined about Celtic's ''paranoia''. Now I know it is true. We are hard done by. Religiously and politically, there are people against us." Lou Macari - Eight month long reign, no major honours. Notable signings included Andy Walker, Willie Falconer and Wayne Biggins (!). Regarding his departure from the club as a player he said "I left Celtic because of money - a fiver to be exact. Jock [Stein] wouldn't give me the rise I asked for, so I was off." Tommy Burns - A reign of almost three years th ...
Today in Baseball History -- Sept. 16 -- from Mary Landers ... 1883 -- Tommy Burns and Ned Williamson of the National League's Chicago White Stockings both score three runs in the seventh inning to establish a major league record which still stands today. 1914 -- At the age of 23, Yankees shortstop Roger Peckinpaugh is hired to replace Frank Chance as the skipper of the team. During his 20-game tenure as the player-manager, the young infielder will finish the season with a 10-10 record for the 6th-place club. 1922 -- After listening to excessive bench jockeying from the Giants dugout, Reds' hurler Adolfo Luque becomes so enraged he throws down his glove and bolts into the New York dugout. The Cuban native, known for his fiery temper, punches Casey Stengel on the jaw and is ordered to return to his own bench by the police, who are busy trying to prevent the Polo Grounds crowd, which has overflowed onto the field, from rioting. 1924 -- Jim Bottomley goes 6-for-6, including two homers, and bats in a record 1 ...

From the Bangor Daily News... Motor City’s Neville records no-hitter in Legion baseball opener against Northern Lumber Posted June 16, 2013, at 9:13 p.m. Last modified June 16, 2013, at 10:54 p.m. BANGOR — Tyler Neville tossed a no-hitter in a Zone 1 American Legion baseball opener as Motor City defeated the Northern Lumber 2-0 at Husson University’s Winkin Complex on Sunday. Neville threw 105 pitches in his complete-game effort. He walked four and struck out nine. He was aided by an errorless defense. Cameron Archer knocked in the second of Motor City’s two runs as Gabe Melmed had reached on a single and advanced to third on consecutive wild pitches.Tommy Burns opened the scoring on a fielder’s choice and an error. Burns also singled for Motor City. Isaiah Stubel pitched well for the Lumber, going six innings, allowing just five hits and striking out five. Batteries: Stubel and Walker; Neville and Burns
Although I don't recall at the time being too upset when Tommy Burns was eventually let go.
A short extract from Chapter 1 of " Bareknuckle fighter " by Bartley Gorman. The Gorman and Wilson families became very close and grandfather Jack was prepared to back his brother-in-law against any fighter in the world. In the winter of 1907, the Canadian-born world heavyweight champion, Tommy Burns, arrived in the British Isles to pick up some easy money defending his boxing title. He breezed through several challenges, including a one-round knockout over Irishman Jem Roche in Dublin. Wilson met Burns in a Dublin hostelry and said, ‘You were fighting the wrong man when you fought Roche, it should have been Bartley Gorman.’ He offered £5,000, a fortune then, as a straight bet, winner-takes-all, to fight bareknuckle against the heavyweight champion of the travellers, Bulldog Bartley, in Dan Donnelly’s Hollow on the Curragh. Burns declined but Wilson followed him to London and repeated the offer. Again he declined. Before twelve months were out, Burns had sailed to Australia and lost his title to Ja ...

Just wanted to thank the Johnston Co. DA. Today my 17 yr old son got to learn another lesson that his whole life he was taught differently-lie your way out of a situation to get where you need to be. In order for Cole Withrow (one of Brandon's best friends) to have the felony charges dropped or reduced that were against him he was MADE to sign a statement written by Susan Doyle for the press stating he had lied about certain parts of his statement. For example he said he went to get his drink when in fact it was a bottle of water!!! There was a discreptancy in what he had to drink-seriously??!!! Pretty sad that the REAL CRIMINALS get a pat on the back so often, but the GOOD GUYS are made to look like fools! Cole will move on with his life and leave all this behind...maybe he will choose a career in law. He has surely learned how the judicial system works and its not by being truthful and honest. I now understand how people can end up in prison for years to later be found innocent. Manipulation is a true a ...
You know, it's been said by many people that I see the world through a "child's eyes". I have such a simple view of the world and how it should work. The old adage "do to others as you would have them do to you". That is truth. You want respect, you give it. You want love, you give it. You want fairness, you give it. And so on. In school my "simple ways" were seen as an intellectual issue. I was called stupid and retarded more times than I can count. Including, believe it or not, my mother would call me such things. I hid the fact that I have a learning disability. I wouldn't tell anyone, even tho it would get me help. I was already being called things like "retarded" and "special". Going to a special class for special help?? Yeah, that would have helped me in that... So I hid it. Only told one person, she helped me through school and took my secret to the grave with her. In time, although undiagnosed, I have been able to come up with techniques to cope with my learning differences. I have been told t ...

We found out something today, we found that Scottish football is corrupt to the core and that our governing bodies are lying, corrupt, handshaking self serving cheats. BUT, and it is a big BUT. You knew that anyway didn't you? Nothing has changed. Scottish football has always been corrupt and been biased towards the now dead zombie club. We knew that and we have always known that and today's decision to award a fine that cannot possibly be paid should not be a surprise. What is a surprise though is the preplanned way our Scottish media have already dismissed the news and are trying to move on. For months now the tv and radio stations have been treating the new zombie club as the same old one and are currently on a crusade to make it look to the world as if the new club and the old one are the same. Celtic were fined £300k for taking Tommy Burns from Kilmarnock without going through the proper procedures and the old Rangers have been fined £250K for years of cheating to gain a sporting and monetary a ...

He designed Villa Lewaro, on the Hudson River, the mansion of hair care magnate Madame C. J. Walker. Tandy is also known for founding Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity at Cornell University. FRATERNAL The first black Greek let sorority was Alpha Kappa Alpha, founded at Howard Universitry, Washington, D.C., in 1908. The prime mover was Ethel Hedgeman Lyle, who became the first vice president. Lucy Slowe (1885-1937) was the first president. Two other early sororities were Delta Sigma Theta (1913) and Zeta Phi Beta (1920). BOXING Jack (John Arthur) Johnson (1878-1946) knocked out Tommy Burns on Dec 26 in Sydney, Australia, in the fourteenth round to become the first black heavyweight boxing champion. He lost only five of ninety-seven fights. Born in Galveston, Texas, Johnson was known as "Little Arthur" in his childhood. Because of his fearlessness, flamboyant style, and colorful life, he becam ...

Celtic had to pay £300k for taking Tommy Burns from Killie (fine and compensation). Compare that to 11 years of cheating at £250k
So no titles stripped? Looks like Tommy Burns died a loser then.
It's "Andy Goram" that Tommy Burns admitted would be on his headstone not "Dual Contract"

Alan Scott Pardew (born 18 July 1961 in Wimbledon, Surrey) His highest achievements in the sport include reaching the FA Cup Final twice, as a player with Crystal Palace in 1990 and as a manager with West Ham United in 2006, though he ended up on the losing side both times. He has also achieved promotion three times in his career, as a player with Crystal Palace and as a manager with Reading and West Ham. As Newcastle's manager, he won both the Premier League Manager of the Season and the LMA Manager of the Year awards after guiding the Magpies to European football for the first time since the club's return to the Premier League. Reading Pardew's first experience as manager came in March 1998 when he was appointed as caretaker after the departure of Bullivant. After the appointment of Tommy Burns he remained as reserve team manager until the end of the 1998–99 season, when Reading disbanded their reserve team. Nevertheless, he was promoted to manager of the club after a successful spell as caretaker in ...

John Arthur (Jack) Johnson, (1878-1946) Born in Galveston, Texas, was the first black to win the world heavyweight title and was one of boxing greatest and most controversial champions. He worked as a janitor, dockhand, and stable boy before becoming a professional boxer in 1899. After winning the title in 1908with a knockout of Tommy Burns, he defended the championship against a succession of “great white hopes,” including former champion James J. Jeffries, who came out of a six-year retirement in 1910 only to be knocked out in the 15th round. He posted a career record of 78 wins, 8 losses, and 12 no-decisions, with 45 knockouts. A play (1968) and motion picture (1970) based on his life, “The Great White Hope”, starred James Earl Jones. That’s our moment in history. Be Blessed!

Yesterday I was asked by Gary/RFC to update the rules a bit, sorry for the delay, here they are... ~RULES~ 1) No use of bigoted or sectarian language/words/refererences 2) No talking about the dead in anyway. (Ibrox Disaster, Bobby Sands, Davie Cooper, Jinky, Tommy Burns, Jock Stein ect.) 3) No talking about, or alluding to child abuse in anyway what-so-ever. 4) No talking about The Famine, in which 1.8m people died, of BOTH faiths! 5) No using Big Jock Knew, to try and get at the Celtic fans. Remember he helped at the Ibrox Disaster. 6) No need to use the Queen or the Pope on the page, they've got absolutely nothing to do with football. 7) No mention of Terrorist Organistaions, they also have nothing to do with football. 8) No mention of Irish or NI 'politics' 9) Any fake profiles on this page will get an automatic ban. Use your real profile if you have nothing to hide! Anyone breaking these rules will get a warning then a ban. Posters often get banned/comments deleted for their own good, to protect them ...
'He's currently in the middle of a threesome with Scott Brown's sister and Tommy Burns.in *** ' was one comment i seen
Even if the Celtic fans did chant Having a party when Gazza dies the Zombies are being massive hypocrites. They mocked Tommy Burns after he died and what they don't realize is saying Big Jock Knew is mocking the dead. -Oran
In 1870 (exactly 143 years ago TODAY) , In The 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the United Stats constitution are collective known as the "slave amendments". Ratified after the end of the Civil War they (sort of) ensured former slaves citizenship and the right to vote, as well as legal barriers to the return to slavery. In practice, of course, it would be another 100 years before Blacks were really able to vote more-or-less freely and Jim Crow laws as well as anti-Black customs, ubiquitous in both "The North" and "The South", would prevent these Americans from enjoying even second class citizenship for many decades to come. In 1908 (Exactly 105 years ago today), John Arthur "Jack" Johnson remains one of the more colorful figures in boxing history. He became the first Black world heavyweight champion on December 26 1908, defeating Tommy Burns on the fourteenth round. He would lose only five of ninety seven professional fights. Success did not come easy for Johnson. Flamboyant and prone to dalianc .. ...
We have as our profile pic two legends, two cult hero's from Celtic & Rangers in Tommy Burns & Davie Cooper. Who was or is your cult hero at your club, past or present and why? Cult heroes? Every club, every fan has a cult hero, so who is yours and why? Colin

So, last night, I dreamed that I apparently slipped into such a convincing coma that the local Coroner declared me dead. I found this out after 'waking up' in complete darkness and pushing open the lid on my coffin. Luckily, they hadn't buried me yet, so I got to see the look on my funeral-goers' faces. Everyone seemed decently glad to see me, but since I had been 'dead' so long [Nearly a week, I was told!] I was ice cold and nobody would get too close to me. Anyway, though I looked and felt like a corpse, I was otherwise fine. Didn't even smell bad... well, I could smell formaldehyde, but hey... it was a dream, so they probably embalmed me. Fun times.
and obvs going to costa with tommy dawbs. Then seeing my fave gangsta ozzy g. Yayyy!!! Miss my babies!! Xxx

Joseph Francis Hagan (better known as Philadelphia Jack O'Brien) (January 17, 1878 – November 12, 1942) was light heavyweight boxing champion of the world. Biography Born in Philadelphia, Hagan was the older brother to Young Jack O'Brien and the cousin of heavyweight boxer Jack Rowan. O'Brien turned pro in the 1890s. He stood 5-10 1/2 and weighed 152-165 pounds. He was agile, quick and limber, a two-handed puncher who landed often but not a particularly hard hitter. His best punches were a left jab and a hard overhand right, and he was a good defensive fighter who blocked punches well and counter-punched accurately. O’Brien won the world light heavyweight championship with a 13-round TKO over Bob Fitzsimmons in San Francisco, California, but abandoned the title. He challenged world heavyweight champion Tommy Burns on November 28, 1906, in Los Angeles, and got a 20-round draw. The referee was former world champion James J. Jeffries. O’Brien challenged Burns again in Los Angeles on May 8, 1907, and th ...

GAMES TO REMEMBER 1995-05-27: Celtic 1-0 Airdrieonians, Scottish Cup Final Celtic's first senior trophy in six years, since May 1989 Scottish Cup Final. The Club lost the League Cup final in Nov 1994 v Raith Rovers (6-5 on penalties, after a 2-2 draw). That marked Celtic's first final for years and we stuffed that up. The 1995 Scottish Cup was Paul McStay's first trophy as captain. Tommy Burns' first season as manager, lifting some silverware for Celtic. First trophy under the new board regime since the takeover in 1994. It's funny when you look back on 1995 and think of just how important the Scottish Cup win was to the support. In some eyes its devalued, but to those too young to have been around then, you have to give a history lesson on the previous 5-6 years at least, which is out of the scope of this review. To summarise, we'd been battered and insulted both on and off the pitch by our opponents and our incompetent board management, to the level that led the club to near oblivion. The hard fought ta ...
"The manager at the time, Billy McNeill, knew it was going to be my last game for the club but the fans were unaware I was joining Kilmarnock. I wanted to go out with a smile on my face and not a tear in my eye, so I got all of my crying out of the way during the warm-up before the friendly against Ajax. I ran about the pitch for 20 minutes with tears running down my cheeks because I knew I would never wear a Celtic jersey again. Big Billy was kind and understanding because he took me off 30 minutes into the match so that I could say a lingering farewell to the fans. I ran to the old Jungle and paid my respects before moving to the 'Celtic end' where I had stood as a boy." (Tommy Burns on his last game for Celtic) ~ton~

Happy birthday to the one and only Tommy Burns who would've been 56 today... Keep an eye over us you absolute legend. HH -NC-
think it’s important to recognise the legacy that Tommy Bunrs has left us. You’re seeing it more and more these days, from James Forrest terrorising a full back to Dylan McGeoch not passing to Stokesy, it’s everywhere. You’ll see it flying past opposition defences, scoring goals and representing Celtic with distinction, just like Tommy did. Similarly when you need to think about what Celtic is all about you always look no further than wee Tommy from The Calton. The man who lived it. Lots of people have their Tommy stories, he was the kind of guy who would never walk by anyone in the street, never ignore a request for an autograph or photo and he attended more supporters functions than Charlie and The Bhoys. See it was Tommy Burns who created Celtic’s current youth development programme. He was the drivng force behind Lennoxtown that is now seeing a crop of youngsters emerge from it that befits the legacy of Tommy Burns. We all know Tommy was a one off, he was Celtic through and through, he lived ...

Happy birthday tommy burns He was a man, a family man, a Calton man, a Celtic fan He was adored, by everyone, from the wealthy clan, to the working man He kept his faith in the Lord above, but his brave fight it was at an end Well Tommy don't despair, wee Jinky waits for you...up there His prayers they got answered When as a boy he got his chance To play for Glasgow Celtic And to fill his dreams and his romance Now in the sky over Paradise There is a bright and shining star For a Calton bhoy called Tommy Burns He lived forever in our hearts -Caoimhe

THURSDAY, 13 DECEMBER 2012 16:00 On This Day: December 13 WRITTEN BY ROBERT BOYLE WE look at some of the memorable moments that have happened on this day in the remarkable 140 year history of Rangers. Today we remember an extra time win over Celtic from '78, a win over Aberdeen and the signing of a striker whose Ibrox career was ravaged by injury problems. In 1978, Rangers were in League Cup action against Celtic at Hampden in front of over 49,000 fans, winning a dramatic match after extra time. Rangers were behind twice in the game and came from behind to win thanks to an own goal by Celtic substitute Jim Casey six minutes from the end of extra time. Celtic opened the scoring after Tommy Burns had capitalised on a poor Alex Macdonald pass to release Johnny Doyle to score the opener. Rangers were back level thanks to a Sandy Jardine penalty after Davie Cooper had bee fouled in the box. With the game locked at one each, both sides had a man sent off with Tommy Burns sent off for dissent and Alex Miller se ...

Tonight is the final where just 3 tools remain! 10pm E4. It's last chance saloon for the Tools as their unimpressed in-laws arrive at the Academy for a special 'Don Toolio Abbey' themed epsiode. Will the Tools be able to prove to their in-laws that they're worthy suitors for their girlfriends, or will they fall far short of expectations? There's all to play for, and there can only be one winner. Who will graduate from the Academy no longer a Tool and £25,000 richer?!

Gary greeting like a big bairn yesturday, we don't want a Rangers logo up as a cover because it is not a Rangers page, and don't compare it to when you put up pictures of Petrov and Tommy Burns etc that's different that's celebrating individuals and we do the same for Davie Cooper but having a Rangers logo is *** on a OF page, You would of moaned if we had a celtic background up!!

Ice cold baby… Fire Required If you happen to pass ALS HQ today pop in with a blanket and a flash for us cos it’s bloody freezing in here! Over to the gaffer, who is no doubt, by now, sat in his warm office at the Academy. Anyway, he’s been chatting about mental strength, fan expectations and comparisons between Sunderland and Celtic: “It takes a strong player to play here for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. I’ve often thought that. There are clubs up and down the country where it’s tough playing at home. I managed a team up in Scotland for five years where you had to be a really decent player, with a strong mentality. I think it was the late Tommy Burns who said it was harder to play for Celtic than to play against them. I know exactly what he means. Here it’s demanding and you have to have plenty of courage and ability to play here. You have to have a good mentality and a bit of self-confidence. And then you need to go and win some football matches and put on a performance. That’s ve ...
