Does one of his family play for Clyde?
Strange to see him at the game!

He does some work with Radio Scotland these days, possibly something to do with that?

He's doing a lot of media work these days.

Heard him on the radio and he's on Sky quite regular.

I'd assume he was at Ibrox for work, rather than having seen the light and moved over from the dark side.

One of the least offensive Tims on the go. Rarely if ever have I heard him say anything anti Rangers other than ina natural rivalry type of way.

IMHO most certainly not a bitter.

A gentleman from a more civilised era of Tim

Mind you, the fact he is actually Irish sets him apart from your common garden Celtic man

fairs fair
27-12-2012, 11:00
funny how that happens, hated the c#nt as a player but seems quite fair on tv/radio. I remember him blessing himself all the time but somehow only at Ibrox, particularly one time before a penalty trying to put off Mark Walters -Walters kissed his Gers badge as Bonner picked the ball from the netting.

27-12-2012, 11:19
was about to come on and post that he seemed a decent big guy. never heard him say anything bad about us either.

thought i would need to then spend the rest of the day in the bunker with my tin hat on :D

good to see i am not alone in my opinion. as others have said perhaps its because hes a real irish man and not a plastic troll

Was just going to post regarding this game. Me and 2 pals were front row in the Copland, behind the goal, we watched the game thru the nets lol. But second half, when Bonner came out to line up, he gave all the Rangers fans the vickies behind the goal, then pretended he was finger combing his hair. This must be where Peter Kay stole part of his routine surely?

I met him in the early 80s at the Kuip in Rotterdam as the breasts were there playing a pre season tourney, spoke to him and tommy burns and have to say as much as I despised Burns both were proper gentleman who were happy to talk to me and my family packy, thought it funny as I had my Rangers fleece jacket on they thought it was good to see a Rangers fan coming over to speak with them.

Before anyone has a go I was there as my family are Feyenoord supporters.

Agree with this. I also loved it when Ally dumped him over the advertising hoardings at Hampden- possibly the game he got his hat trick:confused:
Pat Bonnet was vastly over rated as a keeper but he seems a really decent guy.

Bosley
27-12-2012, 15:33
Correct me if I'm wrong, but just after he left the piggery, I seen to remember him criticising the bigoted behaviour of many and the sectarian culture within celtic, and got pelters from the beggars for letting this out.

His father in law used to do the turnstiles at Ibrox back in the 60's & 70's. Pat Bonner has always struck me as being a very decent guy.

If I remember Ally used to always get him to fall onto his backside when he ran at him with the ball at his feet.
When he played for ROI against Holland in U.S.A (I think) we were in Tenerife and the Dutch fans used our hotel as their HQ for watching the games on the telly. My son who was about 13 at the time was in with me watching the game and said to a couple of Dutch fans, don't worry their goalie always makes mistakes. Sure as heck a shot straight at him came off his hand and ended up in the net, cue about half the pub turning round to look at my son. For the rest of the holiday when he was in the bar he had his Coca-Cola's bought for him.

Decent enough guy from an era when there was genuine respect between the OF players. That's all been ruined by bitter NI taigs like O'Neil and Lemmon.

Last night, flicking through the TV channels spotted a Daniel O'Donnell show on BBC Alba. It was a show to celebrate Daniel's 30th year in the music business. At the end of the show Paddy Bonner came on stage to present Daniel with some kind of Award for his 30 years.
My first thought was that Bonner he would drop the award before he passed it on to DOD. My second was, what the hell is he doing on here and my third , why am I watching this?

I realise I'll get rubbished for admitting to watching this but what the hell! And, I may well be the only one here who watched the show and spotted what Paddy Bonner was up to!!

Correct. He was standing in front of them and was first to appeal to them to stop but they ignored him, then McStay had to run from the halfway line waving his arms at them to stop. They also ignored him.

The BBC Scotland ignored that the entire episode had happened at all in the highlights that evening.

baystatebear
27-12-2012, 19:37
Recall him in a You Tube interview saying that most of all he enjoyed OF games at Ibrox. He always 'got big-time pelters' from the fans Gers end, but
he took it all in good humour, and used at a motivational tool to try and be at his very best. He seemed like decent enough bloke - not at all bitter in the Lennon/O'Neil mould.

27-12-2012, 19:42
Have met Paddy a few times at functions, speakers evenings etc.

As others have said, he is a gentleman who knows how to behave in public. A genuinely nicer guy you would not meet.

The current regime at Twisted Towers would do well to take lessons from him

Big Jamesy
27-12-2012, 22:16
He blessed himself in front of the Rangers support in every OF game and wound us up when septic scored up the other end too. But he took stick back with a smile and never went crying to the media about 'big nasty Rangers fans' either. never had any hatred for the guy the way I had for that fat pr!ck from Poland that played in goals for them.
It would speak volumes for him that he could sit at Ibrox for 90mins and not cop serious abuse

Bonner is no lover of our club, but if we expect everyone to love us then we're deluding ourselves.

A man who sees our rivalry as purely sporting, and doesn't attach himself to all the bigoted shite that Scottish (but Plastic Irish) west of Scotland Tims do.

Surprising to see Him coming to Ibrox

Considering the abuse and death threats he got for crossing himself on the pitch when playing for CFC against us.

Oh that's right , He never got any , because he didn't direct it at the crowd or add on other gestures.

Nobody gave a sh!t when Bonner did it , He did it respectfully and got respect back.

'Crossing Yourself is not a crime' ,
being a mentally unstable Polish bigot should be;)

My first thought was that Bonner he would drop the award before he passed it on to DOD. My second was, what the hell is he doing on here and my third , why am I watching this?

I realise I'll get rubbished for admitting to watching this but what the hell! And, I may well be the only one here who watched the show and spotted what Paddy Bonner was up to!!

Watching BBC Alba - 1 strike. Watching Daniel O'Donnell - 2 strikes (could be argued two as he's that bad) Admitting it on FF - 3rd strike, you're outta here!

May I be the first to call for a ban for this poster.
