Let The Banter Begin - Celtic

Let The Banter Begin - Celtic

In the fourth of many, Vital Manchester City brings readers the 'Let The Banter Begin' series. In this episode, we look at Wednesday's opponents, Celtic. To make the most of the atmosphere, ensure you're PC speakers are on.

This article is not intended to be-little the club or their fans in any shape or form - on the contrary, the whole idea is intended to be light-hearted.

It's with great sadness that I report Celtic Park was broken into last night. The entire contents of the trophy room were stolen. Strathclyde police are believed to be looking for a man with a green carpet.

An old man hands over 50 quid to the turnstile operator at Celtic Park

Man: 'Two please'.

Turnstile Operator: 'Sir, will that be defenders or strikers?'

There's a rumour that after the NTL sponsorship expires, Celtic have lined up a new sponsor - Tampax.

The board thought it was an appropriate change as the club is going through a very bad period.

I'm glad to report that a new green and white Oxo Cube will be introduced early next year. It will be called 'Laughing Stock'.

Q: What do you call a Celtic fan in Europe after Christmas?

A: tourist!

Celtic fan drives about in a white van. He hates seeing people walking around in Rangers top so every time he sees a Rangers fan he swerves across the road to hit him but turns away in time not to.

One day he's driving along and he sees the Priest walking along, the Celtic fan pulls over and says to the Priest...

'Father where are you heading to?'

Priest replies: 'I`m going to Mass'.

Celtic fan: 'Do you want a lift Father?'

Priest: 'Yeah, why not.'

They're driving along when the Celtic fan sees a bloke in a Rangers top, he swerves across the road and again intentionally misses the Rangers fan. He hears this loud thud and looks in his rear mirrors but can't see anything. Then realising he had a Priest in the van he quickly apologises.

'Sorry Father but I didn't hit him!'

Priest says: 'Its ok, I got him with the door!'

I liked the priest joke but I couldn't understand many of them. If indeed someone broke into our trophy room, then the guy before him must have lifted the 83 pieces of silverware we have in there. Also, last 16 of the CL in Europe 2 seasons running and a Uefa Cup Final in 2003, Don't think we were just tourists. Nice try though.

I appreciate that. But more research could have made more accurate fun at our expense.

Guys, like R.K. says, the jokes only work if there`s an element of truth in them. P.S. How does it feel to be the Espanyol of Manchester?

Tudor I don`t like "Man, you", thank you very much. In fact I`m not keen on any of the establishment teams, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Meelan, Rangers etc.

Celtic! Good Luck with the new manager, I hope he gets a couple of years to put his stamp on the team. Didn`t think there was much wrong with the last manager though.
