Celtic Diary October 7: Not The Positive News We Wanted

Oddsone Edoaurd has tested positive for Covid 19 .


The French under 21 side conducted the tets prior to the next round of international matches, and it appears the forward picked up the virus sometime between the last test at Celtic Park and arriving in France.


Then again, one’s mind wanders when noting the tired performances of the forward recently, and when combined with the unreliability of the testing systems provided in this country, maybe some sort of investigation needs to be held, and perhaps a review of the methods used by Celtic.


It’s not as if the whole team have been off peak of late, is it ?


Fatigue is the most common symptom of Covid, and quite clearly there is a need for the club to tighten up on procedure.



In the meantime, lets wish the player well and hope he doesn’t get the Bad Covid.



Various rumours about other players have surfaced, but the club went out of its way last night to point out the Edouard is the sole infected player, and there is no reason to doubt that.



French rules mean the player is required to self isolate for seven days, so the player hopefully will be ready for the Glasgow derby, which bizarrely , given the nature of the illness, seems to be at the front of everyone’s concerns.






Apart from anything else, the fuckwitted Tanner has got the date of the game wrong, presumably because he wants it played on the Friday because he’s not allowed out at weekends without adult supervision.


Then he corrected himself, albeit wrongly, when he said it was ten days….and remembered that it might do his image some good if he wished the player well.




Our man in France sent us this….



The French government has slashed the mandatory Covid-19 day quarantine period by half. Here’s what you need to know about the new rules.

During his brief speech to the nation on Friday, French Prime Minister Jean Castex said the government had decided that the period of obligatory self-isolation for suspected or positive Covid-19 cases would be reduced from 14 days to seven.

“On the proposal of the Scientific Council, the duration of isolation will be reduced to seven days, that is to say the period during which there is a real risk of contagion,” Castex said, referring to the council set up to advise the government on its coronavirus strategy.

The prime minister had himself just completed one week of quarantine, forced upon him after he shared a car with Tour de France boss Christian Prudhomme who then tested positive for the virus.  



The official advice is that you need to self-isolate if you;
  • Test positive for Covid-19;
  • Have Covid-19 symptoms and are waiting to get tested;
  • Have been identified as a contact case and are waiting to get tested
  • If you have tested negative but have been identified as a risk-contact
  • If you have tested negative but live in the same house as a positive case



Just another example of why you shouldn’t take any notice of our own media.


Especially Tanner.


He became a sort of cheerleader for the hordes with his tweet, which in fairness is the level of intelligence he appeals to, and one or two of them claimed it was a conspiracy between Celtic and the French national side to get the game postponed on the 17th, as the hoops are running scared of whatever that entity out of Ibrox calls itself these days.




Just like they’d have clawed back that thirteen point lead…..



The rules on covid isolation in Britain are a little more confusing than in France, with all sorts of exceptions and exemptions.


What confused Tanner was this…


What are the government rules for self isolation?

Stay at home and do not leave the house for 14 days.  



  • you may have to self-isolate for the first 14 days you’re in the UK. See the guidance on self-isolation for EnglandScotlandWales and Northern Ireland
  • you may not have to self-isolate when you arrive from some countries and territories known as ‘travel corridors’. View the latest guidance and list of travel corridors for EnglandScotlandWales and Northern Ireland



If I was him, quite simply, or if I was advsing him, I’d suggest he just stays home until he’s better.


Same goes for Eddy.


Anything else is just nonsense.



Speaking of nonsense, the former Sky pundit Charlie Nicholas, the only pundit who can put his foot in his mouth whilst having his head firmly up his arse, says that Celtic have been doing things on the cheap, and “rangers ” have won the transfer window cup, to place alongside such treasures as the Social Media Cup and other assorted non playing titles.


I said Celtic would go cheap in their pursuit of a left-back. I knew they wouldn’t spend money on a defender that Neil Lennon has been ever so patient for.

“I don’t think Lennon has been given much of a helping hand, if I am being honest.  


He should have left that last bit at “I don’t think “.


He had to work double time to get anything out of so-called wealthy Celtic. I’d imagine he’ll be pretty annoyed this morning. I am sure he will put on a brave face but I don’t think he will have got anything close to what he was looking for.

“Albian Ajeti will get him goals but there are still question marks in other areas of the Celtic team. 


Rangers must be looking at it thinking that they got the better of the deals.  


Presumably the level of thinking at Ibrox is similar to that which goes on between the ear-ringed lobes of the intellectual toddler.



Lennon responded to the statement…again we have the original draft.


Tell him to fuck off


which appeared , after considerable editing, as


Listen, if we were to sign (Lionel) Messi and (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Charlie still would have found fault with it. He’s been negative about the club for years.



Either that or he’s just a knob.

Anyway, bit Tanner and Nicholas are through to the final for this weeks Knob of the Week.


It would take some doing to dislodge either of them from that position.



Yesterday, we had this…

The very fact that Tanner didn’t wish Eddy a speedy recovery in his initial tweet speaks volumes and is KOTW. On that topic, caption:

Just to say that a positive test is not necessarily a case. https://www.cebm.net/covid-19/infectious-positive-pcr-test-result-covid-19/
Also this video from Irishman, if that matters to you, Ivor Cummins is the best I’ve seen that follows the science of covid. Following the science is something that our governments have not been doing.
Hope this helps to inform people as there’s a lot of patent nonsense flying around disguised as science.

Just seen several YouTube clips showing Diego Laxalt’s skills and was greatly impressed. I know that these videos can sometimes flatter to deceive but there’s enough evidence in these ones to show he can do a lot of remarkable things and looks the real deal. Great game-reading and tackling, impressive dribbling and crossing ability together with blistering pace and power in the air. Looks like wee Greggs going to have to content himself with being second fiddle for a season.
Bienvenido al Paraíso Diego. Me mola tu país cantidad. Lo vas a pasar pipa en Glasgow y va siendo hora que les propinemos una muy merecida paliza que te cagas a los hunos de mierda que vienen de otra parte de la ciudad y que tan mal huelen. Con tu ayuda desde luego.

The clubs paying players’ wages is a spurious argument, as its all a private organisation/competition and, if you want to take part, you follow FIFA/UEFA rules, where international competition is paramount.

As Scotland are playing at home and Armstrong plays in England, I’m not sure that can be blamed on “bloody foreigners”.

I just hope that Griff cancels any weans’ birthday party in the next couple of weeks. 😉

When the day is dawnin’
On a Texas Sunday mornin’
How I long to be there
With Marie who’s waitin’ for me there
Ev’ry lonely city where I hang my hat
Ain’t as half as pretty as where my baby’s at

Is this the way to Amarillo?
Ev’ry night I’ve been huggin’ my pillow
Dreamin’ dreams of Amarillo
And sweet Marie who waits for me
Show me the way to Amarillo
I’ve been weepin’ like a willow
Cryin’ over Amarillo
And sweet Marie who waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
And Marie who waits for me

There’s a church bell ringin’
Hear the sound of joy that it’s singin’
For the sweet Maria
And the guy who’s comin’ to see her
Just beyond the highway
there’s an open plain
And it keeps me goin’
Through the wind and rain

Uefa are a shower of cnuts and you don’t need me to tell you that. They were never going to risk losing more money that they already have. As for the football itself, it’s brutal. Anyone honestly say they enjoyed the champions league etc? It’s awful.
