Will we win the league?

Here's a Little history lesson

1. In the 1400s a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb.

Hence we have 'the rule of thumb.'

2. Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...

Ladies Forbidden'... and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.

3. Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

Spades - King David,

Hearts - Charlemagne,

Clubs -Alexander the Great,

Diamonds - Julius Caesar

4. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase......... 'goodnight, sleep tight.'

5. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink.

Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

6. In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts...

So in old England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them 'Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down.'

It's where we get the phrase 'mind your P's and Q's'

7. Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service.

'Wet your whistle' is the phrase inspired by this practice.

8. In 1696, William III of England introduced a property tax that required those living in houses with more than six windows to pay a levy. In order to avoid the tax, house owners would brick up all windows except six. (The Window Tax lasted until 1851, and older houses with bricked-up windows are still a common sight in the U.K.) As the bricked-up windows prevented some rooms from receiving any sunlight, the tax was referred to as “daylight robbery”!

9. Since the last decade, hun fans have said they are gonna win the league at the start of every football season, hence the phrase DELUDED WANKER. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Quite interesting

number 3 on cards seems a bit out of place though

no morale and although all of them could be hearsay/clever associations, unless you have specific references to explain them,

the card 1 just doesn't fit

I heard the cards are based on tarot without the arcana cards, since they involve necromancy type divination, based on the ancient cabala and the old 4 elements in alchemy

But I dont know

And I would love to see the reference of the kings

another one and I have no idea if its true to add to your list

is in highlands at certain places they spoke Scottish Gaelic - alba at other towns it was Irish Gaelic - erse

And a common phrase was you dont know you erse from your alba which became modern weird arse from elbow expression.


Another one which fits is the covenanters wore distinctive red neckerchief and were referred to as conts and red necks

How it will pan out 2021

Sevco will be in Europa & imagine they r a super team.
They won't be takin into account any of the run of luck they've had, Benfica 5 plus players out etc, not having to report any positive cases etc...
And most of all a Celtic asleep.
That will soon end
Kent their only quality player who makes them tick along, will soon get his usual lengthy seasonal injury.

The zombie club living off the carcass of deid rangers will repeat their 2007/2008 season
When the hun orange scum were daydreamin if it was to be a double or a treble year.
As late into the season as 31 March 2008, Celtic were seven points behind & hun scum also having a game in hand.
So did the hun scum win a double a treble that season?
