Celtic DiaryTuesday December 3: Mainstream Media Manipulation

In a little over a week, Britain will go to the polls to elect a democratic government which will be entrusted with the job of clearing up the current mess.

As polling day gets closer, the mainstream media will get wilder in its claims, accusations and downright lies as outlets push for their favourites to be declared the winners next Friday.

When its all over, there should be calls to look into the way the truth has become a casualty more so than at any other time in history.

Here in Scotland, we’re kind of immune to that nonsense because it’s been the norm up here for the last twenty years or so.

We’re a wee bit better at spotting the bullshit.

We can also largely predict when it will happen and where it will come from.

Sometimes, of course, it won’t come at all.

For example, the shareholder angst at the recent Celtic AGM should have been a field day for the anti Celtic media, and there is an anti Celtic media out there. Here was a golden opportunity to strike out at the club and it’s board whilst citing the claims of shareholders…but there was nothing.

Which in no way raises suspicions that Lawwell et al were involved in the collusion from day one.

Craig Whyte has a book coming out , in which he promises to blow the lid off Ibrox and expose corruption not only there but throughout Scottish football.

Good luck getting one of the rags to serialise that.

The media as a whole and the sports media in Scotland are alike in that they are both conservative, with a small c as well as a capital one.

 

The first domestic cup final takes place on sunday, where plucky newcomers “rangers ” face all conquering Celtic, and it’s plain to see who the media favour, although they will tell you they just want to see a different name on a trophy, like we used to have when the new entity wasn’t good enough to seriously compete for any.

According to the media, they are more than good enough now.

Alfredo Morelos, the striker worth anything from £20m to “50m will lead the line, ably supported by £7m man Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara, who is apparently rated at £8m by Juventus, whom it must be presumed are fed up winning titles in Italy .

Don’t forget James Tavernier, another £10m worth, and there are others who when added together make the squad worth around £103m, and thats with Morelos at last weeks value of just £20m.

Tavernier has been around a while, as Alison Mcconnell explains..

Image

Administration ?

Contrast that to Celtic, where Jeremie Frimpong, an outstanding right back ,  is too small, Fraser Forster too tall, Scott Brown too old and Oddsone Edouard too injured to make an impact.

By the way, the pre match press conference today, for the Hamilton game tomorrow night at Celtic Park, should make it clear that all our injury doubts will be available for Sunday’s game with “rangers “.

Morelos is a decent striker, who certainly knows where the goals are. Perhaps the hype is because throughout their history, and that of the previous entity, they haven’t really had many top notch strikers to idolise.

None who have gone on to achieve much outside of the Scottish football bubble.

They’ve never had a Larsson, a Sutton, a Dembele or a Hartson to look up to.

And thats just recently.

Going back further , if you take away McCoist and Hateley, you are struggling to think of any that you would cast an envious eye at.

Well, apart from Marco Negri, but he didn’t like them either.

So perhaps all this love, affection and hype poured on Morelos is down t that. They’ve finally got a goalscorer of their own, and they are merely telling us how much he means to them using financial terms.

The rest of their journeyman squad may believe what is written about them, and perhaps it even gives them confidence that perhaps their manager cannot instill by himself, Gerrard will have found out by now what it’s like to manage players of far less ability than he himself had.

The media are giving him a hand, and he’ll need it this week. Starting tomorrow , up at Pittodrie, where aberdeen will be anxious to make amends for a 5-0 drubbing at Ibrox last time out.

This is a big few days for the lovable Scouse rogue, two wins an he’ll be immortalised at Ibrox, and even a defeat tomorrow to Aberdeen followed by the clubs first senior trophy and he’ll get at least a statue.

He might even get away with a win in Aberdeen and a defeat at Hampden, but two defeats and he’s toast.

The hordes will turn on him, which is what they normally do when things don’t go their way.

In their own, tiny,  minds , they have already got the League Cup in the trophy room…

Image

The “big Jew “…could he be referring to El Ahmed ? The Israeli muslim ?

 

Now we can see why the media are fully behind him. He needs them to help him, and they need him to sell their papers.

It’s almost as though someone is controlling all of it….

Image result for james traynor

 

Our players will be continuously linked with moves south, stories which at least will have a smidgeon of credibility in that there are teams down south who are interested, as this list of club scouts at the recent Rennes game shows..

Image

 

If we wanted to we could list the squad next to it, and concoct a story for any or all of Celtic’s squad…southampton has a scout at the Rennes game keeping an eye on Olivier Ntcham, Oldham were after Frimpong and so on.

Thats how these things work.

 

The truth is, though, two defeats this week and the hordes will go into meltdown.

I wouldn’t worry about them too much.

The difference on the ptich between Celtic and “rangers ” is night and day.

Off the pitch its daylight and darkness.

 

Yesterday, we had this…

The modern day footballer must be adaptable, he must be extremely fit, able to change his position throughout the game, must be two footed, physical and be strong of mind. The same with the manager, know his players, know their strengths and weakness’s, read the game and adapt his tactics depending on how the game develops. I always like to see who is on the bench and how and when they can add to tiring players, or shore up a tired area of the pitch. Experience counts, once you have been there and done it, that expands your confidence and you are able to deal with the pressure of winning. That experience gives us a big advantage for Sunday, add to that a much better team of players with experience all over the pitch, the only factor that could work against us is the referee, whose decisions matter and of course lady luck. Joseph Goebbels was a master of propaganda, fake news and misinformation, the fat controller had an experienced teacher.

B.R. is a top manager, as Neil confirmed both before and since his departure, that is why he is in such demand in the P.L. Leicester City’s meteoric rise up the league without bringing in any new players speaks for itself. That is why Tottenham and now Arsenal are seeking his services. Personally I think that Brendan has a point to prove down south and he WILL prove it. His unedifying departure IMO. is down to the real snake, the “Adder” upstairs. Neil Francis is also a good manager whose love for Celtic sweats out his every pore and his unswerving loyalty to our club is just what we need at present, we wish him well and huge success.

HH wim the tim, forgotten by the glory hunters.

Wilhelmus Marinus Anthonius Jansen

Wim Jansen stopped Rangers’ bid for 10-in-a-row and brought the league trophy to Celtic Park in his one and only season.
Won the Coca Cola Cup (the League Cup), Celtic’s first league cup triumph in 15 years.
Brought Henrik Larsson to Celtic.
Most of his signings were very good: Craig Burley, Stephane Mahe, Marc Rieper, Paul Lambert, Jonathan Gould.
Celtic’s 2-0 win over Rangers in the Ne’er day game was a catalyst to turn the league around for Celtic.
Celtic were very good against Liverpool over the 2 legs in the UEFA Cup and were unfortunate to go out on away goals. First good European performances in around 5 years.
Celtic played some attractive football under Jansen.
Played in the Feyenoord team that beat Celtic in the European Cup in 1970.
Wim Jansen was Celtic’s first non-Scottish/Irish/British manager. Notably, he was also the first man to manage Celtic to never have been a Celtic player (Liam Brady never played for Celtic, but technically on paper when he arrived at Celtic he was listed as a player as well as a manager).

Larsson was his only signing

the rest were jock browns

im sure jansen was fully aware of the mercurial talents of Darren Jackson and when he signed for celtic it was under the stipulation that if he comes Jackson does… CLOWN

google it? I remember the season well, jansen sending malky mackay upfront vs Dunfermline.. 5-0 that night if I recall

The suggestion that the chip wrappers will avoid our hero’s new book because of their default position of being the laptop loyal is only partially true. The book’s author couldn’t tell the truth if his life depended on it. The type of guy who would tell a lie just to keep his hand in. There may well be the odd snippet of truth in it, but when you’re a serial fantasist, you reap what you sow and discourage any support in promoting a work of (mostly outright) fiction.

For all that I’m sure there’ll be some funny anecdotes, but not much else.

Caption: With laughing eyes I do recall
Every face that crammed this hall
And in this room our hats were hung
And words were written and songs were sung
And we held our glasses high
And we dared to reach for the sky
And we never would grow old
When we were the new bhoys

And on these streets we were like kings
We’d roll and tumble, fight and sing
And in these smoky pubs the yarns were spun
And many a sweetheart was lost and won
And on these green fields we played for pride
No quarter given, no compromise
We were lovers and we were sons
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys

Behind this cellar door on cheap guitars
We played our blues till the early hours
No one listening but a few old friends
We never dreamed it could ever end
This was our moment, this was our space
This was a jewel of a time to have graced
But they’re all sweet memories now
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys

All my life I’ve been running
down the side of this hill
But way down deep in my heart
don’t want the water to ever be still
All these friends have long since gone
Blown and scattered like autumn leaves
Some are lawyers and some are thieves
Some are now behind the sun
But I’ll never, never be afraid
From the cradle to the grave
I learned my lesson and I learned it well
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys

And we held our glasses high
And we dared to reach for the sky
And we never would grow old
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys
When we were the new bhoys

For all the arguments of what Rodgers did or didn’t achieve remember this before his announcement as manager Celtic were looking at 25k season book holders.
The top tier had long been closed and Celtic were looking at an unusual situation for a club who had just secured the title. Dermot knew there was only one person for the job.
Rodgers brought the feel good factor back to the club filled the stadium and put 10k onto the waiting list he went undefeated domestically back to back trebles and the rest they say is history. Be thankful we had him and his backroom team who brought us great success and be also thankful that when we needed someone to step up to steady the ship and to see us home Neil Francis Lennon duly obliged.
It’s great being a tim

But it wasn’t for the first time in our history was it?

Lennon and deila both failed miserably to do what Rodgers did. Without anyone called rangers in the league.

Caption KT “ so I said to Brendan I am really enjoying your coaching so should I sign for Leicester and he said no, sign for Arsenal.”
There will be a time to properly evaluate Rodgers legacy at Celtic, his record in Europe, the manner of his leaving,he did sign some numpties but he brought Mousse and Sinky and a style that was effective e.g. the Invincibles.I just think Lenny has improved it. The best way to shut the media up is a convincing win on Sunday.

haha you are really pathetic

lennon got ‘gubbed’ in may by new rangers, Rodgers lost 1-0 with a squad all sick

his agg score against them would be more suited to a rugby match

it really is ripping out of you, its all rather sad

time for you to up the meds for the PTSD

then opened up a 9 point gap before doing the dirty?

maybe you would remember if you went to the games

you don’t pay money and therefore don’t have an opinion on rodegrs lennon or even deila for that matter

leave that the the guys who keep the club running

Rodgers did a job and got us back on course made the club money but I agree with cs here. His approach to European games were clueless. I think he overestimates his decision making and almost stupidly sticks to one plan regardless of the personnel. I don’t think apart from Sinclair and dembele and Odsonne he made any significant signings. We needed his profile badly when he came in. Thank god he did but Lennon’s a better European manager.

Also, he was only going to move on. I think he’s light years ahead of Lennon in making young players better. Lennon’s better at picking teams and using pragmatism. He’s sorted out our defence, Rodgers didn’t think there was a need to get the defence happening to an acceptable level. I think the difference btw the two managers is ego and opportunism. Rodgers cares about Rodgers. Lenny truly loves Celtic

The EPL stronger than the Europa ? Early games yes but,
Crystal Palace,
Norwich
Everton
Sheffield Utd
Southampton
Watford
Manchester Utd.
Wolves
Aston Villa
Bournemouth
Newcastle
Arsenal… last years final, beaten
Chelsea, winners, cheating, transfer embargo ( appoint No1 fan as manager)
Any of the last sixteen in Europa ( I know three of the above may be there) would give a real go to any of the above at present, including Celtic.

If there was any doubt this CS is a hun, i think his outburst today confirms he is.
His vendetta of Brendan Rodgers is quite sinister actually.
Maybe it’s because Brendan is an Irish Catholic that is firing CS up?

That team might be the one that plays against Cluj next week but certainly not the one that NFL will pick for Hammy Wed night. He will play a “strong team”. Although hopefully Griff gets a start but I think it will not happen. BFF, Frim, Jull, Aj, Taylor; Cal,Broo
Jamesy, Ryan, mikey, Lewy. Subs
Gordon, Thor, Bitton, Olly, Griff, Moe, Coffey,
Coffey trained with the 1st team and showed up well in the friendlies pre season. robertson also has done well recently. Maybe he will make his debut in Romania. Hoping the youngsters get a game out there. Glad to see that a good few of the injured players are returning. last year this time we had about 13 out injured in December. Only El Hamed, Jozo, Arzani out now?

I watched the highlights of sportscene there where the studio discuss Morelos ffs he scored with a header against a kid at full back and apart from that the other clips were terrible. Yet we are led to believe he is worth 50 million fuckin joke. One on one with the keeper missed a chance to play in a team m8 didn’t make the pass other clips were just pish.
It’s ridiculous the way they are trying to up this guy.

I speak as one of the most guilty, historically, on here and one who’d now like to help stop that inter-Tim horror show which eTims (and ALL its visitors) often have to suffer.
“The Celtic Family” on here is often reduced to “A Family at War”. (I’m old enough to know both)
Us Tims are far better than that and should desist from degrading ourselves like huns do daily.
Ach, here’s a healing song, a sentiment of togetherness, of camarederie, fearlessness and true purpose……..HH

Lenny is right the next big game is tonight not Sunday.
With that in mind we need to make sure players are up and at it from the go. It would be too easy if some had one eye on Sunday and dont want to make that tackle in case of injury.
So it’s a tough one for the manager to balance.

The decision to keep Sinclair out of the loop presumably in case he gets injured before sold is the wrong decision. He is a Celtic player and the club pays his wages. Its time the board appreciate that the decision must not be money orientated and it is a footballing decision. Get him on the park and play his part.

Mike,
There are a few ahead of him now m8, Elyounoussi & Mikey Johnston for example.
Games such as tonight tho should be considered for Sinclair, he’s not been playing regularly tho.
We aren’t in the loop when it comes to knowing what happened with Sinclair but it’s disappointing to see a guy who has delivered a lot, treated this way.
Hopefully he get’s a move in January.

Lawwell out!

So Wanyana, Roberts and Armstrong all moved on to improve themselves (aka their income and I would likely have done the same) but Spurs, Norwich and Southampton all in action tonight and none of them even make the bench.
