Celtic Diary Thursday March 14: The Daftest Rumour Of All

Celtic will face Aberdeen next moth in the Scottish cup semi semi final. Hearts face Inverness in the other game, and the draw for the final will take place after the second game, which will be played on the sunday of the weekend 13/14 April.

We’ll keep you informed.

The ticket allocation will be done in Celtic’s favour, with word emerging that around 30,000 will go to Celtic fans,although don’t be surprised if its another tea time Saturday kick off.

still, its always a colourful occasion aganst the dons, and their support are beside themselves with excitement, as the belief amongst them is that sooner or later they’re going to beat Celtic at Hampden..

Two wins in the cup, and maybe about half a dozen in the league will see Celtic secure a treble treble, despite a bad start under wantaway manager Bernie Redgate , and latterly avoiding a crisis when the previous manager finally found a club who wanted him, and who he also supported as a boy.

Neil Lennon has stepped in to steady the ship, and took the guys to Cheltenham, as usually happens this time of year, so they could all get to know him and each other properly.

While they were there, the international squads were announced, and a happy Olli Burke found he was back at that level..

That was my first time at Cheltenham and I was there when the Scotland squad was announced. 

James c( Forrest ) came up to me and said, ‘We’re in it!’ It was a great feeling. I didn’t know anything about it so to hear the news like that was wicked. We got the emails confirming it later.

“On top of that I managed to back one winner at the races and then I stopped – I collected my winnings and thought, ‘That’ll do’.”

Some of our players want to represent their country, regardless of whichever donkey is in charge.

For Burke, its proof he made the right move in coming north on loan.

“This loan deal has been really successful for me. It’s got me back on track and kickstarted my career again. 

“I went from starving for football, not playing at all and almost being the forgotten man.

“When you go from being almost the main man, the star with all those headlines to suddenly not being involved at all and down with the 21s instead of the first team, it’s hard.

“When I was at West Brom I’d travel with the team then not actually be in the squad. It has a massive impact on you as a player and almost has you not believing in yourself.

“When things are going so badly you wonder what your next step is and where you go from there.

“So I’m really happy I chose such a great and big club with great people in it who have put their arms around me and really given me that confidence and belief in myself.

“Now I’m almost happy these things (disappointments) happened because it’s made me realise as a player how important it is that each day you grab your opportunity. 

Silverware was another massive motivation in coming here. I don’t think I’ve won any trophy – except maybe one of those little ones kids get at a trial day for scoring the most goals.

“It would be amazing for me and for the club to win silverware, it really gives me that motivation to push on and help the team as much as I can. 

One of the traditions of Cheltenham is to dress all nice.

I suppose you could say we tried..

The others weren’t much better…

But, a good time was had by all. No one got drunk, no one invaded the track and no one made an arse of themself.

Everybody’s happy as we approach the business end of the season.

Next up are Dundee, followed by the international break.

Thats on Sunday, and it could be a win will put the hoops far enough ahead in the league to allow the break to be pressure free and a further chance to recharge the batteries.

July 10, when the first competitive game was played, seems an awfully long time ago now. It was Alashkert, in case you’d forgotten. I had.

Although the manager has expressed admiration for the training set up, there have obviously been changes made, however minor, as no fresh injuries have occurred since he took over.

Suddenly, everyone wants to be a part of things again, a testament to the managers strength of personality, although the real test will come at Hampden, which held a bit of an indian sign over him in the past.

 

Meanwhile, someone at the council has forgotten who runs things around here…

BLACKOUT 

Celtic denied permission to build giant rotating LED screen outside stadium

The free standing ‘windmill’ sign would have been used to display live and recorded TV images as well as adverts 

A council spokesperson, who clearly doesn’t want to work there long term, said;

“The proposal was refused because it was judged contrary to planning policy in relation to signs and advertising within the City Development Plan.

“That’s because it was considered to be detrimental to road safety in terms of its size and location.” 

Later, we’ll ask how he..or she…felt when they received that letter containing a P45.

We’ll give them the right of reply, we’ll make her an author..she can’t refuse !

Scottish football has taken another hit on its image with the recent sacking of Dom Gall, the man who did the tweets at Berwick rangers, who cheered us all up with his honest and humourous tweet during the clubs game with Cowdenbeath.

He’s been sacked, showing its not just the SFA who can be miserable bastards, but club owners are on that level as well.

Disappointing way to end my time with Berwick but i’m proud of everything I achieved over the last few years. I hope i’ve provided good coverage and content for fans whilst also making the rest of Scottish football laugh a few times. 

I appreciate all the messages and positive comments i’ve seen today. A special thanks to and for shining a bit of light on the situation. Hopefully this will help other young comms volunteers make progress with clubs across the country. 

His tweet was funny, popular and reminded us all that football is still a game, and not quite yet ruined by money.

But it can be ruined by people, whatever the level.

Berwick fans may well hold a protest…

Compare the humour at Berwick, the Real Rangers , with the fun and laughter at Ibrox, with the fake Rangers..

Then again, the fallout from a Scottish cup exit, or

has hurt those who expected more from their new manager and his all dancing all singing line up..

I’m off to bed.cant take this shite anymore. Last word of the night is get to fuck Gerrard.

 It’s just not gone their way this season, although it was clear to any thinking man that a rookie manager struggling to make a name for himself in the English under 18 leagues was going to have any real impact in Scotland, no matter how much money was thrown at him.
 There’s no money for a rebuild this summer, so the only way for Gerrard now is down, it just depends on how far and how quickly they regress.
Word is that he’s been told he must sell if he wants to buy, and that led to a fairly bizarre rumour hitting the interweb over the last couple of days.
No, not that one. Thats not really a rumour, more a prediction. Just a matter of when.
This one..
Image result for alfredo morelos celtic
 With the new club now in its eighth year without a major trophy, and almost a qurter of a billion pounds spent in trying to win one, the club now has to sell to survive first and prosper if there’s anything left.
 There have been no offers for Morelas, but the web seemed to think Celtic have or will test the water at around £5-7m.
He’s not as good as those already at the club, but it would be funny. Especially if he improved..as he would in a better side with experienced coaches…and was sold on for the sort of money the hordes think he’s worth, with the profit going into Celtic’s bank accont rather than theirs..
 Or is it that Peter and Dermot want to keep them alive, and have arranged to merely take away their most valuable assets… as opposed to watching the lot tumble and crash again ?
there was a further blow when they were back in court..

Rangers lose latest round of merchandise fight with Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley

The chickens are coming home to roost now…

Then again, there might yet be hope for their support who want to see Rangers again, as there has been a remarkable discovery in the world of science…

The article..see link..explains how it works.

I think.

Could this be the answer to all their problems ?

Maybe they could go back to a time when they were right up there with the big spenders…

 
Then again, look how that worked out..

Today, my mind is on other things, other than football, I will be sparing a thought for those murdered in the Ballymurphy massacre. Especially Joan Connolly mother of eight, Danny Teggart who’s body was riddled with fourteen bullets, Joseph Murphy father of twelve, who as he lay dying, claimed to have been beaten after he was shot and then shot again in custody. In 2015 his body was exhumed and another bullet found inside his body.
To the victims of Bloody Sunday, all fourteen of them and all those injured. That is what I will be thinking of today…

As much as we want justice for the indiscriminate murder of those in Ballymurphy and Derry we’re going to see the Establishment do everything to protect the soldiers and officers who gave orders to use lethal force against innocent people. The MOD have said they’ll use every resource at their disposal to defend those involved. I hope justice is served, but I suspect it’ll get bogged down in a mire of legalities. 47 years and still no justice. Having met 2 women who’ve fought tirelessly to get justice for their brother and seeing how much pain this abhorrence has brought too them, I hope today’s ruling goes right for all involved, but I have my doubts.

Unfortunately Noel, I tend to agree.

We have seen cover up after cover up after cover up over the years.
Take a look at the stats on police prosecutions for example over deaths in custody since records began…..nil, nada, zilch, nowt! With British soldiers and the integrity of ‘the best armed forces in the world’ (aye right you are!) at stake for exposure on a global scale I think it will be business as usual for the establishment! Close ranks and issue the distressed widow’s sons appeal for aid!

How many of these inquiries and hearings have we seen over all manner of crimes and injustices served up by the hands of the British state with nothing but whitewash to show for it at the end..oh and of course those important ‘recommendations’!

Fucking wankers and psychopaths the lot of them, I hope they burn in hell for eternity!

I really do hope I am wrong and if indeed there are successful prosecutions and convictions then I will gladly come on and apologise for my cynicism and rejoice with the rest of you that these dirty bastards have been brought to justice.

Once again you show your complete lack of grasp of the impact of what has just happened to Celtic, we have lost a fantastic manager, that above anything else is what makes me angry.
He has gone, he has made his decision, but WE have lost a fantastic manager.

The usual, an enquiry that lays the blame at the door of the British Army, as clearly there was no intent to attack the Paras by the demonstrators, no occifers charged. only one charged, pathetic.
Now we hav Police Scotland investigating Aberdeen fans for sectarian singing, I suppose the Famine Song is a little ditty.

“Neil Lennon has stepped in to steady the ship”

What!? Before he “stepped in” we’d won all 9 dosmetic games in 2019, scoring 26 and only losing 1 “unsporting” goal.

“Suddenly, everyone wants to be a part of things again”

Eh? Apart from the long ago Dembele and Boyata episodes, we were a happy ship in 2019 before Rodgers left.

“Hampden, which held a bit of an indian sign over him”

Translation – his record is appalling there.

I get that some people just want to anoint Lenny but I’d hope most of us would only want him to be in with a chance of the perm gig, if he does a good job of his caretaker role.

So far he’s played 3 games with only the 2nd half against Hibs being an acceptable level of performance.

There’s obviously extenuating circumstances, so still all to play for but absolutely nothing to justify calls to give him the job now.

Last Saturday provided an insight into how Aberdeen will approach the Semi-Final, so he needs to up his game to get past them.

Just caught up on a documentsry on Bobby Sands via Skystore, (albeit made by BBC, N Ireland) maybe it has been discussed here already. Very moving .If you are interested in N Ireland 70s/80s it is good. As ever the most disturbing thiing wasn’t the army, RUC or even the B Specials at Burntollet but the posh patrician Tory MPs talking down to everyone else. ( Even a young Kate Adie had a posh accent then), also caught a glimpse or our left back in a duffel coat, bet he still has it.

Darkness is cheap and Scrooge likes it!

As a Delia acolyte enters the fray, Scrooge thinks to himself, how can I make this more palatable. “I know” sign Yoda Burke and the jobs a goodun. Brenda has left the building angry and hurt for pastures new, music to Scrooge’s ears, no more man-hugs, instead a mediocrity is put in place. One man emptied the stands, another man filled them up and so the cycle continues. Brenda took all the blame, but Scrooge was rolling in it even more. He snuffs out the candles, puts on even more woollies and congratulates himself on a job well done…

After Bankier bragged about having £35 or £38m in the bank, add to that the £9m compensation for Bre..for Bren…ahh…for him & his backroom staff, for argument sake we have £45m in the bank?
There can be no excuse for going the extra mile for a new manager, new backroom team & a few quality signings.
Lessons must be learned & i hope they are heeded.

I’ll repeat again, some of the things this board are doing is a joke in my opinion, we don’t need disco lights, flashy ad boards or fucking floating food halls, what we need is the best manager we can get & some top players, it’s all about the fucking team & this board need fucking shook out their malaise, wake the fuck up & sort it fucking out & for fuck sake get rid of those fucking lights.
Ffffffuuuuuucccckk!

If i was a billionaire today, i’d buy Celtic, sack Lawwell & the board, redevelop the main stand to complete the bowl ( see what i did there huns ) & the team on the park would be proper world class.
I would employ TicToc to do PR & deal with the media, simply because he would treat them as i would.
I would then employ a lawyer to arse rape any cunt who even thought about talking Celtic down.

I would then reduce season tickets prices to max £100 & free entry to kids under 16.

It’s about the team & the supporters!
