Celtic Diary Wednesday November 28: Assault and Flattery

They really are out to get us.

Its a kind of flattery, but the campaign to derail the Celtic juggernaut is now becoming a full frontal assault.

This is Andrew Dallas, the man chosen by his dads pals at the SFA to referee the League cup final.

Image result for andrew dallas referee

They chose him because the usual eleven v eleven set up might not be enough to stop Celtic winning the first leg of a treble.

Dallas is the orange that didn’t fall too far from the tree, as they say, in that he’s the son of Hugh Dallas, who was part of the furniture at the SFA until it was discovered he was a bigot after his emails were made public.

Thats not ,y only concern about this appointment, the fact is Dallas is a poor referee, and one wonders what criteria were used to elevate him to a showpiece final, as it cannot possibly be his ability.

Ibrox Loyal@IL_Official
 
 

Just to get it off my chest, Andrew Dallas should never be allowed to officiate any football match at any level, professional or not, ever again.

Absolutely clueless individual. 

 This tweet was published after the 5-5 draw between “rangers ” and Hibernian back in May.

As was this one..

Craig Smith@csljm84

@ScottishFA Think I can speak for @RangersFC & @HibsOfficial fans and sat Andrew Dallas should NEVER be allowed to referee a top flight game again 

Six months later, he gets a cup final ?

This will be his first match involving Celtic this season,

Looking at his record thus far, the Hamilton -“rangers ” game stands out.
Its the one where the teams were level with six minutes to go, and Dallas gave not one, but two penalties to the Ibrox side …presumably to get back in their good books.
If his ego is anywhere near the size of his fathers, and his desire to please the hordes on a similar level, then we can confidently predict who will make the headlines on Sunday.
We cannot expect the club to comment on this appointment, but they should. If, or more likely when, he makes an honest mistake or two on Sunday, any comment will sound like sour grapes.
Something like..
Celtic FC are a little surprised that a referee such as Andrew Dallas has been appointed to a major cup final. This is because he’s a talentless twat whose dad was sacked for sending sectarian emails. We would suggest that someone who understands the rules and knows how to apply them be appointed instead. Anyone else, in fact. Even Bobby fucking Madden. 
But we’ll worry about that on Sunday.
Rosenberg away is tomorrow night-tomorrow teatime , in fact, and the nerves are already jangling.
Whilst the papers are reporting that the Norwegians are no longer interested in this particular tournament, they’ve won their league and have a cup final to prepare for, there is also a slim, very slim, chance , that they could still progress…
 The rules are quite complex when it comes to tied teams in the Europa League, and we are once again grateful to Moravcik 67 for explaining the possible scenarios…
Ahead of the game in Norway on Thursday, here are some tweets about the possible permutations of who qualifies from our group. Reminder. All 4 teams can still qualify or be knocked out. Obviously, Rosenborg qualifying and Salzburg going out are less likely.
 Before I start. Yes I agree that beating Rosenborg is the only thing that matters right now. But there has been a lot of talk about Salzburg lying down to Leipzig. And there’s still a misunderstanding about what happens if the 3 teams finish tied on 12pts. 
There are 5 possible scenarios
a) Celtic finish ahead of Leipzig on points
b) Leipzig finish ahead of Celtic on points
c) (Only) Celtic and Leipzig finish tied on points
d) Celtic, Leipzig and Salzburg finish tied on 12pts
e) Celtic, Leipzig and Rosenborg finish tied on 6pts
I’ll run through them in order
a) Straightforward. Celtic & Salzburg progress. We could top the group on the head to head with 2 Celtic wins, 2 Salzburg losses, and if Leipzig drop points to Rosenborg. But the most likely outcome in this scenario is Salzburg top. 
b) Again straightforward. Leipzig progress with Salzburg. As with scenario a) Salzburg are more likely to top the group. But Leipzig could on head to head, with the right results.
c) A 2-way Celtic/Leipzig tie. Leipzig go through on head to head, Salzburg top the group 
d) This is where there are misconceptions. A 3-way tie of Celtic, Leipzig & Salzburg can only happen if Celtic & Leipzig win both games and join Salzburg on 12pts In this scenario, the normal 2-way head to head rules won’t apply. Beating Salzburg 2-0 won’t put us through. 
7. If d) does happen it goes to a 3 way head to head – a new league table is drawn using results from the games between those 3 teams only. Any results v Rosenborg are ignored. See attached pic for the order of tiebreakers. Note: Leipzig will definitely qualify in this scenario 
The 1st tiebreaker is points. This doesn’t help. All 3 teams have beaten the others, and lost to the others. So we’d all be tied on 6pts. The 2nd tiebreaker is goal difference in games between the 3 teams. Currently that stands at Salzburg +3 GD
Leipzig 0 GD
Celtic -3 GD 
But as Salzburg would have to lose v Leipzig for it to happen, going into the final game the GD would be
Salzburg +2 (at best)
Leipzig +1 (at worst)
Celtic -3
Clearly this doesn’t look to good for us, should we need to beat Salzburg to go through. 
Basically, the more Leipzig beat Salzburg by in this scenario, the less Celtic need to beat Salzburg by to go through. If Leipzig beat Salzburg by 1, we’d need to beat them by 3 to knock them out. We’d need Leipzig to win by 5 for us to only need a 1-0 win in the last game.
The 3rd tiebreaker is goals scored in games between the teams. In reality, Celtic can’t win on this rule. Current goals Salzburg 6 Leipzig 5 Celtic 3 To match Salzburg we’d need to score at least 3 more than them in the last game. If we do that we beat them on GD, not goals
Finally,
e). This would require Celtic & Leipzig losing both their last games. There is no permutation in this scenario that could see Celtic qualify. Again, it would go to GD between the 3 teams. Currently Leipzig 3 GD Celtic 0 GD Rosenborg -3 GD 
As we would lose to Rosenborg, we would end up, at best, on -1GD. Whatever happens in the Rosenborg v Leipzig match, one of them would always have a better GD than us. This is by far the least likely scenario, though. 
Anyway, enough gibberish. One last point, in among all the talk of teams lying down.
Qualification is in our own hands. We don’t have to rely on anyone else.
True, it might involve having to beat Salzburg by 3 goals, but it’s still in our own hands. 
Which is all we can ask for really, and after the succesive defeats to Salzburg and Liepzig, its as good as we could have hoped for.
None of the above matters , though, if we don’t beat Rosenberg.
Their manager said..
“We have to seriously consider the Cup Final, which is just a few days after we play Celtic. 

It’s possible that some players will be rested for the Europa League match.

“It will be very difficult to pick two full strength teams against both Celtic and Stromsgodset. I wish it was possible.

“Hopefully, we can get some rest before the match.

“The good news is that we have almost fully fit squad which is the first time that has happened in a while and that gives me room to manoeuvre.” 

Our manager said..

We hope their title celebrations will have been tiring, but we know we have a big test. They’ve won their league and they have every right to celebrate. That’s what you have to do.

“They will look at this as a game to ensure they don’t come out of the group with nothing. They’ll want to put on some sort of performance at home, but it’s not new for us. It’s a lovely stadium, we’ll travel well and the hotel really looks after us. Thankfully the pitch is perfect so we’ll really push to get the result.

Relaxed, and confident.

 
What is worth noting, regardless of who the Rosenberg boss picks, their players will have one eye on the cup final, and a high intensity robust approach from Celtic, from the off, will affect their desire to ,er, compete enthusiastically.
Piece of piss this management lark.
However,whether or not we think they will approach this game at one hundred per cent doesn’t matter, its about what we do. On the night.
I’m confident a morale boosting win is achievable, but in all honesty i don’t care if we score early doors and then spend eighty minutes booting the ball into the stand.
We need the win…
And thats the bottom line.
Theres no doubt the players are taking things seriously, they’ve cancelled their christmas night out in order to concentrate on a hectic and crucial month of football.
They have to be commended for showing that kind of focus.
One player who won’t feature in Norway is Scott Bain.
He’s being saved for the Hampden showdown which means we have two good goalkeepers who are both getting games and both therefore familiar with the defenders. Bain has featured in all the League cup games so far, and thoroughly deserves his chance to win a medal. looking at the bigger picture, it is indicative that the manager is aware of the size of his squad, and is doing what he can to keep them all happy.
Elsewhere, and the police assault designed to assert their credibility before the Janefield report is published became a little more sinister yesterday when Celtic Research looked into the details of those documents that the Record got their hands on, which led to claims that Celtic fans caused the “rangers ” fans to riot…
Within the FOI request which Police Scotland has released on the Janefield Street Crush, there really are some staggering insights into the operation and mindset of our police. At the core is the deflection of blame. This is nothing new to football fans. 

Within the “Data 4” documents they are at pains to avoid the use of the word “crushing” despite the fact that they admit a few paragraphs earlier to referencing the Taylor report on Hillsborough and within another document a mounted officer calls in “dangerous”, crowding.

  In the same letter we see clearly how they are looking to deflect responsibility away from policing & onto Celtic , “Consequently all aspects of the running of the event will be the SOLE responsibility of Celtic..” “I think that makes it much clearer where responsibility lay” 

Given the crushing which we all knew happened pre-match, there was a rush from the police to release a statement stating that safety was of paramount importance in their policing of the game. However their document reveals a contradiction & the evolution of their statement..

They are very much aware of the view among many who attend football that their focus in terms of their PRIMARY responsibility for crowd safety is missing.. “reinforces the view that we were inordinately occupied with preventing and detecting crime” 
The fact that it is the police themselves who are reviewing policing at Scottish football, gives this match-going fan no faith that the fundamental shift in attitudes required in policing football, will happen anytime soon. These documents support very much support my view
  
Image result for applause gif
The above is a top class piece of work, and today i’m going to buy a hat so I can tip it towards Celtic Research.
However, a word of warning…given the police attitude towards the club and our supporters right now, anyone going to Hampden should probably practice shouting “you’ll never take me alive , copper ” and improving their sprinting technique.
The club will remain silent on this…at least until that report comes out.
All of this mentioned above, from the appojntment of Dallas down to the police going on the offensve points to another one of those agendas that we used to use to explain our paranoia, back in the days when it was proved we weren’t paranoid enough.
Its flattering, to an extent, as it shows the deep level of fear entrenched in our opponents, and this desire to pull out all the stops to prevent our ongoing success is reflective of that.
There’s a feeling of deja vu settling over Scottish football just now, as the establishment rolls the dice in a last attempt to stop the charge towards the treble treble and ultimately ten in a row.
The club must be aware of it, and must take steps to call it out, like they didn’t do with Resolution 12 and are now having to be cajoled by shareholders to take action retrospectively.
This time, we need to deal with it as and when it happens.
“rangers ” had their AGM yesterday, and amongst the usual “we are the people ” bluster from the Lying King it went unnoticed that they are yet again building a team on money they don;t have, and are unlikely to get any time soon..
Note the level of fantasy that is being encouraged over there, to deflect from the real issues.
This early candidate for Knob of the Week is a typical, insightful comment on the events of the AGM…

Andrew Dickson Retweeted Rangers Football Club

If they weren’t already, I suspect an awful lot of Rangers fans will be adopting Liverpool as their English team for the simple reason that if they aren’t doing well and Klopp goes at any point, this man is developing into a ready-made replacement.

Can you get Deja Vu twice ?
Given what happened back in 2012, can observers of a “rangers ” bent not see what is happening here, though I suppose they won’t see a pattern, having largely ignored and dismissed events back then.
I can though, and its shaping up to be the best Christmas pantomime ever.
Desi Mond and I recorded a podcast last night, its on the site today. There’s a bit of an update on how Res 12 is looking, and where its going. Rest assured, its not going away.
And no, we’re not kidding. Celtic could do worse than hire James Traynor…have a listen to see why.
Yesterday we had this picture..

This Police report has me a bit, well pissed off actually. So Celtic has sole responsibility for fan safety does it? So what the fuck do we pay the Police for then? A Zombie tries to attack Scott Brown at the ratpit, batteries thrown at Celtic players, thousands of Huns singing illegal songs & not a fucking word said. Who was it to blame for the damage to the Celtic park toilets? Who offended them then, the fucking running water?

I said similar about that on another site. Full responsibility lies with the club,my arse. If Celtic tried to override police instructions,there would be hell to pay.

It’s a cover-up,pure and simple. And you know that they don’t attempt cover-ups when they’ve not done anything wrong.

Why are Celtic saying fuck all about anything, they are quick to dig at us though?

Monti… It’s safe to say that yer a tad peeved…and with justification… I am no lover of the police here in the North but the PSNI are held accountable by a policing board and an ombudsdman.
It seems to have removed the majority of the bias towards the various unionist sections of society here.
The Policing board comprises members, among others, from ALL political parties so transparency is no longer an issue. It seems, for the most part to work well

Monti

Weered,
There’s always been a problem here in Scotland with the Police, trust me, there are serious huns in amongst those cunts!
Huns in uniform m8!

Monti… It has to be a political decision to make changes to the police Scotland scrutiny protocols… It does seem to me as they are autonomous with no obvious accountability in place…

The Cha

Are you sure about the all new PSNI, as I keep seeing articles painting them as the RUC incarnate.

The arrest of the journalists from No Stone Unturned, which the Ombudsman stated was nothing to do with them.

The unchecked intimidation of Nationalists (and not just during the marching season) that locals complain they do nothing about.

I’m also sure I saw something about recruitment from Nationalist/Catholics had plummeted, suggesting any early hope that they wouldn’t be RUC-lite has dissipated.

Mike

Talking about the light show is a deflection, it is Police Scotland’s report (thank you Celtic research) and it proves yet again that the FOI act should be expended to include every organisation that runs Football, I also include the Celtic PLC. This cover up bullshit is the problem with so many things going on that the supporters and employee’s are not aware off and the truth is hidden. Would we have needed 5 years to find out the truth about Res.12 and all the other non disclosed documents pertaining to that and the LNS enquiry if they were accountable… Read more »

A big thank you to Christina for the heads up on the Celtic research article on Celtic News Now.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides public access to information held by public authorities.

Does FOI include private organisations like the SPFL? No..will it ever..no…should it ever.. I don’t think so in reality

SPFL is accountable to the clubs who are duly represented by Doncaster so case closed then all under Peters apparent blessing!

You have as much chance getting a successful FOI request from BBC Scotland as you have that mob

jimboh

If they accept Public Funding they should be covered by the FOI. It’s up to us to lobby Central & Local Govt to ensure that this is followed through, Ensure that contracts with Public Authorities comes with Transparency and Accountability. You want Public Money .. Open Up the Books. Naw!!! Well you’re getting SFA.

Christina Young

Absolutely correct JimboH – when I worked in organisations funded by local council we did not get a choice about this – in reality no publicly funded body should have the ability to refuse, unless exceptional circumstances of course. It is apparent that this is not being enforced adequately. When public body refuses to comply they should be reported to the appropriate authority and not allowed to get away with it – with ultimate sanction being, as you say, withdrawal of public monies!

Mike

The Westminster Government is extending FOI rules to include more private companies. Today Simon Hughes set out a radical extension of the laws on transparency, which could be rolled out later this year.

The FOI act applies to specifically designated private companies, private companies that perform Public functions.

My thoughts are that if the Scottish Government extended the act to include the SFA and the SPFL then that could see a sea change in how they operate, no more dirty little secrets. Desi-Mond this could be the answer to supporters calls for more openness and transparency in Scottish football…

Mike

Another thing that I would like to see is full openness and accountability from all Scottish referee officials. i.e
.All their past histories of all clubs, football related, or otherwise, what societies were/are they involved or members off. Were they ever a season ticket holder and at of what football club. Lack of information leads to suspicion, motives etc. Football supporters deserve to know the who what and why of all officials. After all they pay their money the least they deserve is a clean and an honest game.

Christina Young

Brilliant points made Mike – somehow I think the SFA & SPFL would find some way to be exempt there would have to be real toughness and a willingness in the political arena to break the stranglehold they have on Scottish football. As they run the game mainly for the good of ‘rangers’ all attempts at transparency would be fought tooth & nail by them too. All sorts of lobbying & funny handshake deals going on- pretty much as they do at present I suppose! Incidentally, I had reason a few years back to study Freemasonry (as part of an… Read more »

Thanks Christina, We had a poster on here about one year ago and he like you he castigated the perils of freemasonry, he was scathing in his attacks on the funny handshaker’s. So when educated posters like yourself warn about its tentacles you know that they are speaking the truth. I suppose nearly every Celtic supporter is vaguely aware of them, but our knowledge is based on guesswork. Perhaps you could, if you have time, write into E-Tims with your information. I have read snippets of Paul’s book, but not read it thoroughly, might get it for Christmas. As far… Read more »

as he had a free run at every domestic competition.. no ‘rangers’ pressure games of any sort, and yet he managed to lose to a lower league ‘rangers’

Mike

You can only draw one conclusion when “the son of Satan” is fast tracked into the upper echelons of Scottish refereeing. I have yet to read one positive remark made about Dallas junior, every adjective has been used to describe his ability or lack off ability. It seems to be a closed shop belonging exclusively to the funny hand shakers. His refereeing performances are absolutely mince, but more than that, behind this fraternity is the rule makers. The rules themselves are ludicrous, like, a player is sent off and misses the next relevant game, but it is the team that… Read more »

Let’s not forget Tom Barry today. On the 28th day of November, the Auxiliaries, who were stationed at Macroom Castle, had created terror among the citizens in these local districts. House raids, beating men, taunting women and taking pot shots at civilians who worked in the fields was their method of intimidating the people. The intention was to dampen the spirits of Volunteers. The activities of these Auxiliaries encroached on the Cork No 3 Brigade area, the border of which is just down the road from Kilmichael. On Sundays previous to this, these Auxiliaries travelled in Crossley tenders as they… Read more »

Great stuff.

PMG has done an article about Barry today but not in this great detail.

“Lads like Barry will free Ireland, For her sake they live and die”

Before anyone jumps down my throat, I know that’s Kevin Barry but the sentiment is the same.

The Polus are a joke, their attitude towards Celric fans and especially the Green Brigade are pathetic. On the reverse side of the coin, they ignore all the shit from the Hertz and the Wankers.
At away games Celtic supporters are filmed, I sat a fifty yards from the maroon mob during the Herz game at Paradise, no such thing done, after all they are the best behaved in the land

It doesn’t even matter if that guy Arlene Foster is the ref on Sunday….it’s Aberdeen…total bottle merchants….
I seem to remember Glasgow Polis escorting an illegal March of inbred scum from the LoudHun Tavernier up to Liebrox and they wonder why the public like to post videos of them getting a doing,on Yootubes,rather than helping them!……Can you imagine what Celtic/RCs/Irish would be up against in an “independent ” Scotchland?….FTScottishEstablishment….

Even if that guy Arlene Foster was the ref on Sunday,we’ll still win…after all,it is Aberdeen…..crash…..

Why do the Dundee Polis go out in threes?
The first can read,the second can write and the third keeps an eye on the intellectuals……

It was 0-1 v Hamilton at CP. Some argued VD at fault. I was there and we were poor. League cup attendance s are nearly always less than league . Celts must have a hardcore 30,000 which only finances and kick off days and times affect. It would take a monumental effort for them to boycott anything never mind in this era.

It did when it mattered most.

If the board don’t do anything about res 12, they’ll see what drastic looks like!

Charlie Saiz,
Are you saying ‘ BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY ‘? 🙂

Barry’s victory at Kilmichael was a well planned and executed ambush, but his performance in command of the victory at Crossbarry, a battle forced on him by surprise, where he had to improvise quickly against a far larger force, was truly brilliant. He spread out his group with five sections along the main road and two guarding his flanks and rear. Barry told the commanders of each of his seven fourteen man sections to hold at all costs, and he would have help headed to the sound of the guns. This could only work if they were not attacked on… Read more »

Jimmybee… He was a military genius setting his battle lines as he did…
GLORY OH GLORY OH TO THE BOLD FENIAN MEN
