Celtic Diary Friday June 7: Don’t Panic

We are all aware by now that the quest for ten in a row is going to get harder.

As we approach the business end of putting the footballing world back on its axis, there will be many, many obstacles to overcome.

The media don’t want it to happen. They wanted it to happen to another club, but they didn’t get their way. We will read all about how it’s not good for the game. We’ll be told that it’s unfair , and that some of the titles don’t even count, as “rangers ” weren’t in the top division.

Grossly disrespectful to the other clubs, but thats the way it is in Scotland.

Thats the way it’s always been.

Of course, Celtic have now won every available domestic trophy since the new club came into the top league, but as they don’t have much money, that will be seen as an unfair advantage to Celtic.

 

In short, the bizarre world of Scottish football is about to get even more bizarre.

 

What we do need is a circling of the wagons.

We need our own to speak up for our own. Politicians call it unity, and in a sense they’re right.

We don’t need to be arguing among ourselves, and we don’t need to be listening to  Uncle Tim in the papers.

Jackie MacNamara is spot on when he said;

“I think the tension’s started to build in the last year because it’s getting nearer, that (10 in a row),”

 “The last old firm game, there was quite a bad fall out from that. 

You see more and more on social media and more and more things happening and I think it will get worse over the next 2 years depending on how the league goes.” 

It will.

The fear of failure can easily overtake the desire for success.

But we can deal with that. As long as we stick together.

 

And we can do it in the new hot tub..

Someone, somewhere deep in the bowels of Celtic Park suggested this to the merchandising people.

More worryingly, someone else thought..

Let’s hope the guy who thought of this has fuck all to do with the scouting network, although one does wonder if he sent Peter this picture a year or so ago..

I’m hearing that Mr Comperr is very highly paid, and his mere presence at training, where he cannot be accused of overdoing it, is causing a wee bit of tension…

Still, I’m sure we can trust the manager to deal with this, and other issues, without getting into a tizzy about it.

There is a lot to do before the UCL qualifiers start, and we’ve ony got about six weeks or so to get ready.

The international break doesn’t help. Tired players are being forced to play an extra couple of games. Then they’ll need a break, and then it’s potentially eight make or break games on a week to week basis.

Several Celts will be involved with the Scotland team, who begin their qualification matches for the next european Championships tomorrow night.

Scotland have already secured a play off spot, against Finland or Norway or Iceland or Sainsbury’s, so the whole campaign is kind of meaningless.

Then again, international football is meaningless.

Our players need a break, which they will get at the training camp out in the Alps..but when you look at the schedule this summer, it’s little wonder that come the end of last season they looked a little tired.

Maybe we need to be a little aware of the value of a big squad, before we start cutting the wage bill.

 

As I said, there will be many attacks on the club, on its support and on its sponsors, so it comes as no surprise to see the hordes have started on the latter.

This is from the enlightened website Follow Follow, a thread started by the less than enlightened sounding Presbyterian 

Could I ask if you are aware of the current ongoing child sexual abuse investigations regarding Celtic football club of which Dafabet is the main club sponsor?

”Within the last year there has been 4 separate convictions against former employees of Celtic f.c for crimes of a sexual nature against minors spanning several decades and it appears there is many more to come.

”As a customer of Dafabet I am becoming increasingly concerned that the good name of the company will be affected by these criminal cases as they are now being reported, almost daily, within the mainstream media.” 

He added;

I would urge any Bears who have Dafabet accounts to also query the company’s stance on being the official main sponsor of a football club that has harboured a paedophile ring for over 30 years. 

”Imagine the headlines if their main sponsor cancelled their contract and cut all association with them while going public with the news – thus giving more power to the victims of Celtic f.c in their quest for justice.

”It would spark a domino effect and no right-minded company would touch them with a barge pole. “ 

Another wrote to New Balance..

Dear new balance.
As I finished up playing football in my comfortable New Balance sports shoes an acquaintance enquired if I had checked my mobile phone. I had not, but soon did and as I checked to see I had a new message on WhatsApp i was shocked and disgusted to find the above attached image.
Could you please confirm if you will take action regarding this? I assume there is no truth in it, but it left me rather embarrassed around 16 of my peers as everyone became aware of the allegation and the thought that New Balance pay to help the cover up of child abuse.
Any proof or comment you could supply to help me rebuff these claims and wear my new balance with pride, (and spare my embarrassment next weekend from an unforgiving bunch with long memories) would be gratefully appreciated.
I was vocally critical during the Penn state scandal and this is causing me great embarrassment.
Regards
Jack Elington 

The Janefield Street site covers this in more detail, in this excellent piece  Janefield street

 

But the point is they are hurting, they are beginning to go into meltdown, and the season hasn’t even started yet.

 

Celtic have sold out their season books for next term, and that kind of hurts them as well.

The club has sponsors front and back of the shirts. The stadium has a sponsors name on the seats. Not my preferred choice, but it is a revenue stream that is unavailable to the new club.

No one wants to be associated with the crooks that own the club, or the vermin that scuttle around after it.

They can’t see that, as the press won’t report it.

And it really hurts them.

We didn’t cut the cancer out of the game back in 2012, and we should have. There was the worry that it would come back more virulent, and indeed, it has.

The fun has gone from watching them suffer, and although it’s apparent to everyone else they are still on the critical list, this particular form of cancer appears to be infectious, and it’s beginning to spread.

We can see that in the letters above, and hear it in the crowds that still think they are watching Rangers.

 

Still, if we circle the wagons they shouldn’t get to us.

 

It’s Friday, and it’s time for

Knob of the Week

As you know, I’ve been incarcerated in Peterborough for a few months. Thats done now, I’ve been released.

And it’s to Peterborough we return, for this one last time.

Fuckwitted fascist Nigel Farage slunk out of the election count last night when he realised that the most Brexit of Brexit cities didn’t want his party to represent them in parliament.

The mood down there was a sort of realisation that they had been lied to by this serial loser and his disciples, and it showed as Labour, probably the lesser of three evils, held the seat.

So, this week.. and probably every week, Nigel Farage is a clear winner of the Etims

Knob of the Week award. 

And a more deserving winner there could not be. He should be chuffed, as he doesn’t win much.

 

Yesterday we had a picture of two other great leaders to ponder..

Sick Zombies. They should be expressing their concern about what went on within Liquidated Rangers…………..

The Daily Rectum is of course egging them on. Sooner that rag is also liquidated the better.

Celtic: respond now with top quality new recruits. All effort and spend has to be on 9 and 10. Nothing else matters. That will also kill the rags and close down the EBT fake journalists.

I’ve penned my own missive to New Balance:
Dear New Balance,
I am writing to express my concerns regarding the quality of your footwear.
I happened upon another correspondent of yours in Glasgow, a chap by the name of Jack Elington. My main concern was, when kicking several colours of shite out of him, the sole started to come away from my new training shoe. I feel that it should have held better, thus allowing for a decent kicking of said hun, Elington.
Imagine my embarrassment at having to take the shoe off and use it as a cudgel, which, of course, is not what it was designed to do.
I await your response.

Dear 32Red
I note you are a British company but licensed in Gibraltar. That’s fitting as I’m writing about a Scottish football club based in the 17th century. I also note you were fined in 2018 for letting a guy on two grand a month gamble 750K. That’s ok too as the club that this club is impersonating gambled itself to death. I just wondered if you were aware that the club you sponsor are a shower of cunts?

On this day in 1967 the Lions took centre stage again. The great So Stefano had requested that Celtic be the opponents for his testimonial.
Madrid had kept hold of the old Eurooean cup and didn’t like it was out their grasp and in the parkhead trophy room.
I think they wanted to show Europe they were still kings.
Of course the Lions showed them up in their own patch in their own way.
Jinky danced and the flea tore them to shreds.
Ole Ole Ole they cried as the Real fans warmed to the wee man. Buzzbomb got the goal and Celtic ruled supreme. HH the Lions you are forever in our hearts.

Shouldn’t be any need to “circle the wagons “; 12 months ago we were so far in front , regularly spanking them good , that they were resigned to 10 in a row ( even if they wouldn’t admit it )!

Then the fiasco/machinations began at our club and those supposed rock solid foundations of which our superiority was built , began to creak and groan .
Overnight the spankings stopped , replaced by close run things .
Gradually they gained hope , became emboldened , by OUR hesitancy , dithering in the transfer market and by the fallout that came from it.

So to a new season , 3 Treble winners and without doubt the time to show real intent for the coming 2 historic seasons .
If ever a time to flex our financial muscle and crush their ( genuine ) hope , that time is NOW .

Yet the word on the street is “Austerity ” !

( yes I know some will say , and fairly , ” Lets wait and see what we do ” , but as of now the signs aint good ).

So the danger is just emboldening them even more ; making us an “obtainable ” target , thus the talk of circling the wagons .

We ought to be blowing them away ( offensive strategy ) , not circling the wagons (defensive strategy ).

So the deal with the flags is as follows.

During official visits when any dignitary is speeking behind a podium the podium must have all flags of present dignitaries and if the US flag is present it should be on the flags own right (the left to the viewer) unless in a display with multiple allied flags in which case flags should be organized alphabetically (in NATO displays using the French language). In this case because both “dignitaries” were on stage at the same time using podiums they both needed the same flags behind them.
