ETims Diary – Short and Sweet

Hi Folks

Desimond here

Just a note to say that Ralph may be away for a while due to family issues that he and the rest of his family have to concentrate on.

Ralph might pop in now and again but just don’t think he is ignoring you..he just has bigger and more personal fish to fry at present.

 

Please feel free to add some comments below and please keep him in your prayers and salute him when you raise a glass at every goal Celtic score in the foreseeable future, starting with the Semi Final v Hibs on Saturday.

 

We shall look to get some content up on the site and please feel free to send any contributions to etims.contact@googlemail.com

 

Best regards

Desi

Often I don’t agree with Ralph’s take on things but really appreciate the opportunity provided to debate different points of view unlike a lot of the Timternet sites that are Board stupid, hysterical, clickbait etc.

Wish all the best to Ralph and his family and hope that issues are resolved in the best possible way.

Like a Celtic defeat you’ll soon be back on the one road again Ralph, YNWA.
On the game last night, a decent debut by our new Bhoy who was fed quantity and quality. I was giving Eddie pelters for trying to dribble through non existent spaces and surrounded but then he did it to shoot off the post for the opener. Jamsie set him up just after and he put well over when he should have scored. Jamsie ( with his new song, replacing BR here for ten in a row) scored and we played the game out. Brooney I hope is okay for Saturday but for me, for his defensive play, carrying it out and goal threat, Julien was superb.

Broony being injured might not be a bad thing you know. The guy needs a break and with Ntcham Bitton etc back fit I dont think we will miss him too much Saturday if hes not available.

I’m very sorry to hear the news about Ralph from both the personal angle where I have had the opportunity to enjoy his company and wit in real life and the wonderful support he has given to the pursuit of Resolution 12, which still has legs as the following clarifies.

Sad that it has to be posted against a background of personal concern for Ralph but I reckon he would want readers to be updated with the consequences of Celtic opposing the latest Resolution. (not the original)

Celtic oppose taking the investigation away from the SFA and asking UEFA or the police to investigate.

In doing so they are binding themselves to a judicial process that after 2 years has shown itself not fit for purpose and one in which they resist questioning.

At the 2018 AGM questions relating to CAS involvement were asked and a commitment to providing a written answer was made at that AGM but to date there has been no answers.

No answers to them by AGM 2019, suggests Celtic are incompetent at best and complicit at worst the consequences of which are a possible fraud is being covered up with Celtic’s knowledge.

Not a good place to be standing at AGM time.

So whilst going to UEFA or the police is eschewed by Celtic, not providing answers to the questions posed as result of the SFA “parking” the investigation that Res12 has caused, is simply untenable.

Opposing the current Res doesn’t mean the matter is finished, it just means no more excuses can be accepted for Celtic’s inaction since in effect May 2018 when they were given hard legit evidence of fraud but did not act upon it, requiring Res12 lawyers to do so at cost of £2k to add to earlier costs of around £7k..

So whilst Celtic might oppose going to UEFA they simply cannot stand aside and let the SFA stay silent.

A deadline for SFA to decide what to do must be set by Celtic by or at the AGM, along with a timetable for completion, whether that be by SFA or CAS covering ALL of the submissions made by RFC under granting and monitoring of the UEFA licence in 2011.

Otherwise Celtic are protecting the SFA and risk being seen as complicit in covering up a fraud in which they were victims.

In short their continuing policy of inaction , silence and non interference, particularly from May 2018 is untenable and has to change to restore faith in Celtic and give the SFA an opportunity to regain the judicial authority they surrendered under the 5 Way and restore the rule of football law that otherwise lies in tatters.

Sad to hear news of Ralph’s absence and why, both on a personal level where I enjoyed his wit and company and of course the great support he has given to Resolution 12.

There is more clarification on what Celtic’s opposition to taking the case to UEFA and leaving it with SFA means but it can wait another day.

Agreed.

James Forrest now has a new contract plus his own song, so I assume that’s him for the off. 😉

No and not going to Rome next week either.

Sarajevo, Tallin, Cluj1 and Rennes will be it for 1st half of season but hopefully a wee run in the ko rounds after the break.

Enjoy Cluj, I did and none of the hassle of other places.
