Celtic Diary Sunday June 28: And On A Positive Note

Rationality has been thrown out of the window with the revealing of the new Celtic kits for next season.

Not an official revealing, but a cunningly leaked photograph or two to whet the appetites, which has excited the support and terrified their bank managers.

 

After a summer that saw us denied an on the ptich nine in a row celebration, and a fourth consecutive treble, there’s nothing wrong with that.

We needed something to put a smile on our faces.

 

The photograph that set pulses racing showed all three of the new Adidas kits that will become synonomous with the ten in a row campaign….

Particularly appealing to some was the third kit, reminiscent of the Love Street strip of 1986….

…which has been adapted from the morning glory Mint lingerie range of  a company called AdoreWe

There’s not many websites that spend as much time on research as we do, and one thing I noticed on there is that the box that says “Add To Bag ” is a delightful synonym for “buy for wife ”

 

Something else I noticed yesterday is that over in Argentina, when football fans take the piss, they really are a class above everyone else….

There’s an airplane flying around Buenos Aires playing a historic commentary from 9 years ago announcing that River had been relegated 
 Which gave me an idea….
 “Your Clubs Deid ” works out cheaper than ” You’re Not Rangers Anymore ” , but they will do a deal on “Fuck the Huns “, as long as you accept any fines or other punishments.
 See, a little laughter brightens up an otherwise dull weekend.
 Speaking of laughter…
Image
 Not by anyone who knows anything about their finances, but a tipster nonetheless…

 Liverpool, of course, won the English League in the week, prompting over the top celebrations in the city, which saw fireworks aimed at the town hall and other raucous behaviour.
 The Merseyside Police chief was dismayed, and declared
 ” People need to be clear that we will not tolerate this behaviour every thirty years
  Fan behaviour during the current crisis can be a little predictable. Of course they want to celebrate , and the behaviour of Liverpool fans was to be expected, which in a sense earns Celtic fans reaction to nine in a row a little respect that has not been forthcoming from the media.
 Don;t forget, a second nine in a row is a piece of history, and we didn;t get to see it won.
 A fourth consecutive treble would have been unprecedented, and we didn’t even get the chance to play for it.
 Well, not yet, anyway, but even a belated cup win won’t feel the same as doing it on the day we were supposed to.
 Credit, though, has to go to a fanbase that has taken it well, which includes the usual nonsense from the other side of the city about it not really counting and so on.
 So, is it any wonder that focus is on the new strips, and a chance to re-identify with the club ahead of what could be a truly memorable season ?
  Having said that, I suppose you could say that the hordes have plenty to look forward to as well….. Linfoeld, the family club from Belfast, have just been “awarded ” a 54th title, putting them in reach of the Ibrox title count….and the race is on for 55….
 Their sister club seem to have upset them , though…
Image
Image
 That unique dominance is Scotland is quite unique, in that it’s not actually dominance given that the club they support just now hasn’t won anything, and the previous entity rewrote the rules on integrity to gain their titles.
  When Jermaine Defoe announced that he hoped “rangers ” would take the knee in support of the “Black Lives Matter “, he probably didn’t expect the backlash from the club/company support that hit social media.
 Should the players take the knee, one fan will take action…
Image
 He’ll walk out of a closed door game, which should be interesting.
 Combined with a tenth title, another financial meltdown and the behaviour we can expect from their support during the season this might just be the end of them, not just this particular entity but the end of the “culture and tradition ” that has blighted Scottish society.
 A culture that has been screaming and kicking to deny the new century and the modern way of thinking is dying, and this season could be the final act of an ongoing pantomime being played out in front of our eyes.
 Thats my idea of a positive note.
 Yesterday, we had this….

Is it just me, but does it seems strange that Ajer is part of the new strip photoshoot, considering his apparent desire to leave the club….

Wherever you find money or power you find corruption, a “Pigs Trough” where the greedy pigs gorge themselves on cash. Why was Russia awarded the 2018 World Cup? more importantly why was Qatar awarded the 2022 World Cup? the games are usually played in June or July, but the temperatures in Qatar then is usually 42 degrees, when football would be impossible, so the World Cup is moved to November to a more suitable 30 degrees. Human Rights are brushed aside in Qatar and modern day slave labour used to build the stadia in fatal conditions. Somebody somewhere made a… Read more »

Rob… a real redneck caption entry from you.it never crossed your mind that the guy may have been mentally ill… what a horrible individual you truly are

Frank McGaaaarvey

Weered, best left ignored. Like a nasty WASP it will go on it’s way if you leave it to buzz in its own ear.

Rob O'Keeffe

You probably don’t realise that redneck is a racist term you tosser.Don’t comment on matters you know nothing about.These asylum seekers took part,along with their virtue signalling supporters,in non- social distanced marches around George Square and indulged in violence with loyalist thugs.Two young guys I know tried to intervene and ended up in hospital so you stick to your day to day life and we’ll deal with the problems that Sturgeon causes and turns a blind eye to.
P.S.ISIS are mentally ill,so are their attacks to be excused or are they to be put down? Double tap…
