John Higgins (snooker) Celtic.

Chris O said...

Good shout, that man!

So what's been your most memorable / favourite trips to the continent?

Keving said...

Well, Seville was a cracker, not the best on that run, that would be in the Kop when we beat Liverpool 2-0....

Before that Celtic 3-1 in the Amsterdam Arena..what a night, funny cakes, oor train got attacked on the way to the game, there was a riot between Ajax hoolies outside, meet ex Celtic manager Wim Jansen, we were housed in a bullet proof secton of the stadium and we won the game at a canter.....left after the game and woke up in Birmingham....couldnae handle that now...:-)

PSG 1996, lost 1-0 to a cracking PSG team...that contained Paul Le Guen, but the support that night was fantastic...

I have memories from all ma trips,Milan, via Barcalona on the way home, last year was good as well, meet John Higgins in Munich, which was a not bad trip until Magnus Hedman got involved.

And anytime i meet the St Pauli boys is always a laugh...

Pity i huvnae had any trips this year....

Chris O said...

Blimey, Keving - you've been around a bit, in the nicest possible sense! And not only that, but you've also met famous people on your travels, too! How on earth did you manage that?!?

By the way - did you end up in Birmingham because of the funny cakes?!?!

Thanks for telling us about your Celtic trips, mate. So if you had the choice, which ground would you like to visit next (in terms of those you haven't been to yet)?

Keving said...

I have been to- for those cities i have missed i'm sorry- Manchester, Liverpool, Blackburn, Leicester, Bordeux, Lyon, Paris, Munich,Amsterdam, Lisboa, Cardiff, Seville and Milan.

Meet the bass player from The View in Milan last year, meet Alan Stubbs in Seville and also meet Wayne Rooney and Danny Dyer who were sitting behind me at Ibrox in the Celtic end two seasons back...

Sure i have missed countries..but one city that's missing is London or Madrid.

London would love to go to the emirites so fingers crossed for the next round. Might be down your way on the look out for tickets...

Yes, the funny cakes had a lot to do wie me waking up on the M6 just outside Birmingham...

Never listen to a friend who says, you'll never get those cakes on the tunnel we'll need to eat them....
