Celtic Diary Monday January 11: The Road To Apathy

In yet another ludicrous twist to what has been a ludicrous season, Celtic released a statement last night, while “rangers ” were on the telly…

 

Celtic Football Club
@CelticFC
Celtic today confirmed that one player has recorded a positive test for covid-19. Clearly the player will receive all our care and full support. All other members of our squad, management team and backroom squad are negative.  
 Prime suspect, according to the word on the street, is Christophe Jullien, who despite being injured, and despite not being available for the next few months, joined the rest of the squad on what was an “intense training and preparation schedule “.
 In fairness, it might have done him some good, as he can now negotiate a flight of stairs wothout the aid of his crutches, as we see here on his return to Glasgow Airport.
Image
 Others mentioned are Vassilis Barkas, who missed training yesterday, and Tom Rogic.
 Barkas catching anything merits a headline in itself, and if Rogic had it, he’d only lose it to someone else within minutes.
 It’s also suggested that as many as ten players will be told to self isolate as a result of what will surely see the end of Neil Lennon;s tenure as Celtic manager.
 And questions have to be asked of Peter Lawwell as well, because the overall impression from the club is that they are indeed living in a little bubble, with little or no concern for the thoughts of others.
 The crass decision to go to Dubai in the first place, given the shambolic performances on and off the field this season has resonated among the fan base, and we are at the point where this incident , which may yet lead to the government in Scotland calling a halt to the league season, or mercifully putting us out of our misery, depending on how you look at it.
 That could have severe repercussions for the other clubs, who need the income, but more importantly for Celtic as fans begin to wonder why, when it appears the club don’t give a toss, any of them should bother either.
 The disconnect, apparent in such issues as referee incompetence/corruption, Resolution 12 and lack of investment in quality or permanent players, became more of a chasm with the news of the trip and now the probable consequences, and while most of us can’t help caring about the club, a considerable number may now elect to watch from afar, and cut down expenditure on merchandise.
 without the income from the support, the club will wither and die. Apathy is the greatest enemy of the board, as we saw when ticket sales dropped and a section of the stand was closed during one of the Ronny Deila seasons.
 That apathy was blamed on a lack of Rangers, when in fact it was actually part of the fall out from the board refusing to challenge the years of cheating by the Ibrox club, and the damage done to the reputation of the league by the tax cheating mavericks on the other side of the river.
 A not inconsiderable number of supporters , having lost the seats they had for years, simply didn’t renew.
 The investment in a manager of the calibre of Brendan Rodgers was seen as a sign the club was about to move to the next level , a higher degree of professionalism and ambition, but again, someone on the board misinterpreted that, and figured it was because “rangers ” were in the top league again.
 History may yet record that Rodgers was deemed surplus to requirements, and no longer indulged as he had been at first by the CEO, leading to the inevitable fall out which saw the Irishman take up a position at Leicester, where he remains until this day.
 Rodgers is on record as saying he’s a little taken aback by what has been said aboiut his departure, and this page was as critical as anyone, largely because he upped sticks and went in a way that could have damaged the push for nine in a row.
 So, instead, we have Neil Lennon, who has contrived to return the club to the level of the big fish in a small pond, with even the Athletic web magazine picking up on the discontent in the dressing room that we’ve been harping on about for months.
 It’s that obvious that something has gone wrong, and we’re now seeing the result of Lawwell taking control back from Rodgers.
 The end result being that the players went on a thoroughly undeserved jolly to a rich mans playground while supporters and small shareholders altered their lifestyles accordingly as the economic climate, affected by the pandemic and Brexit, makes our lives a little more uncertain than that of say, a collection of overindulged young millionaires living in a bubble of exclusive unreality.
 Paid for, of course, either directly or indirectly, by supporters money.
  With whoever it is contracting an infection, most likely in Dubai, as this table suggests…
Image
 then we have to look at how infection spreads, and most importantly, when the peak time for transmissibility occurs in a patient.
 This somewhat simplified graph, from the New york times should be alarming the Celtic medical staff right now….
Charting a Coronavirus Infection - The New York Times
Which was explained as follows…

Exposure and Incubation

The time between initial exposure to the virus and the appearance of symptoms is known as the incubation period. This period is typically four to five days, although it can last up to 14 days, or perhaps even longer in rare cases. 

Viral Load

After an initial exposure, the number of virus particles in a person’s body, or viral load, takes time to build up as the pathogen infiltrates cells and copies itself repeatedly. Mathematical models indicate that the viral load tends to peak before symptoms appear, if they appear at all, and starts to decline rather quickly in the days following the first signs of illness. 

 

Experts have said that people are more likely to be contagious when their viral loads are high. If so, the window of peak infectiousness might be only a few days long, beginning a day or two before symptoms appear, and closing within a week thereafter.

 

 

In short, travelling on a plane whilst the patient is possibly in the highly contagious stage could have catastrophic consequences for others.

 

 

This may seem alarmist, but the whole point of being in a “bubble ” is to protect the players, and their families.

 

 

Once that bubble is breached, then infections will occur within it, obviously, but  also outwith it, in secondary associates, such as close family, and tertiary and beyond, such as taxi drivers, shop assistants ,,,,,well, that list is endless.

 

 

At first, I was angry at these revelations, angry that yet again mismanagment-or is it gross negligence? -on the part of those entrusted with the safety and well being of players health, players who have remained in an exclusive bubble for months, of above average fitness who may not suffer the illness as severely as some, have what seems a blatant disregard for the seriousness of the illness.

 

Going to Dubai was an error of unimaginable proportions, and whilst what is done is done, the repercussions are only just beginning.

 

 

 

Nicola Sturgeon, it seems, will speak to Celtic about the incident, and with all but elite sportsmen, which i’m not entirely sure encompasses our own squad, forced to self isolate should they travel from Dubai to Scotland, maybe it won’t be long before football is stopped, and from the Bolingoli incident all the way through to this one, it’s apparent that Celtic simply haven’t taken it seriously.

 

 

That alone means that heads must roll, Lawwell should now depart, as indeed should the management, the coaching staff and the medical staff, who have all failed in their duties, to varying degrees, since the season started.

 

 

If that level of disconnect between fans and club continues to widen, and it will, then apathy will set in.

 

 

It;s already gaining a foothold among some supporters, dismayed by years of a lack of ambition, and when the rebirth of the Old Firm brand is factored into the equation, there is a further feeling of distaste at the clubs willingness to ignore the cheating, to ignore the lies and to accept that no matter the cost to integrity, we have to have a Rangers to play alongside, the end of Celtic as we knew and loved it is getting closer.

 

 

The club like no other is not that different from the one over the river, when you strip it down to the workings.

 

 

 

 

There is one theory, however that something big is coming down the line that will distract us from the boards monumental mishandling of the last year or so.

 

Something that will render all of this rant, if thats what it is, I’m not sure I care enough to rant any more, obselete or meaningless.

 

 

I have to say it had better be big.

I’m beyond frustrated with Celtic, it’s bad enough when our natural enemies in the game are cheating us, but from the top down to the dressing room it is nothing short of a betrayal of the support.
Where we are now is self inflicted, no one else to blame but that board & it’s CEO.
For those of us of a certain vintage who remember the fight against the old board, today i feel worse, i feel like tearing the place down!

SACK THE BOARD!

Celtic’s visit to Dubai in recent years paid dividends. This season they sought guidance from the appropriate authorities. Should they have gone, should there be football during a pandemic at all? Different views but the the anti Celtic mob will be out in force. The previous Scottish pandemic of sectarianism is alive as well and outside Ibrox on the second of January. As ever it is ‘covered up’ by the BBC and the print media.
I really wanted Duffy, he seemed a tough Centre Half when our defence was light. It worked for the first two games he played but not thereafter. I was wrong I suppose. There was enough investment, especially in existing players, to win 10 IAR. Why did we fall apart in the early part of this season, that’s what cost us? It worked fine under Lennon for a season and a half.

Recent years and now are two different planets, the decision making at Parkhead is infantile. In relation to transfer policy or young players it is clueless and has been disguised by the trophies. Lennon and Lawell should hang their heads in shame, they have allowed the forces of darkness to succeed. Over the seventy year that I have travelled to watch the team, from Tiny Wharthun, Bobby Davidson, to the present day melange of jokers I have always been aware of the cheating and bias.
The hierarchy at the club do not appear to think that is an issue, says it all.
Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!,,,,,

Totally agree with the rant.

Its all so predictable now. Dubai trip in the pandemic. Rewarding failure when many are struggling. Getting photographed when not following guidelines. John Kennedy admission. Backing a failed manager who is clearly not capable. On a corporate level we are a badly run company with a substandard product and complete disconnect to customers. What this is really about is a few arrogant, incompetent arseholes at Board and Management level making shit decisions. They need to be replaced now.

This is a board that has lost (if it ever had it) its moral compass, they have forgotten the history of the club that they lead. They seem to be confused about what it is that they are trying to achieve, are they trying to equal up Scottish football, to promote ‘O-Firmism’ even to the expense of their own club. It doesn’t make any kind of financial sense e-g: Huns in division 3, Celtic have a clear path into the CL qualifiers resulting in the share price rising. Res’12, Celtic loses out on millions of pounds, the 5Way Agreement recognises them as a new club but still affects equality on the park for Celtic FC. The LNS commission remains unchallenged despite the court cases proving EBTs were a form of cheating (Celtic too also had one player on an EBT contract before it was removed). What you see above is a board conspiring to cheat its own club out of money, have you ever heard of a PLC trying to cheat its own customers and losing millions to a competitor on purpose? Fact is stranger than fiction, I look forward to Stephen O’ Donnell’s new book, it would make a great tragic comedy if the truth ever comes out… and there will I’m certain be other things that remain hidden in the shadows…

‘Its the supporters that have lost their way”, no, you are completely wrong. How can the Celtic supporters be blamed for giving their money, loyalty, everything they can give to the club, they dip into their hard earned cash to fund not just the club, but to every good cause that they can. It’s no use blaming them for this fiasco of a board who treat them with utter contempt. No, the blame lies entirely with the cartel that lead the club, but I feel that sometime soon they will be gone and the Celtic support will get control of their club and get the leaders that they deserve.

I remember returning to Celtic park when Fergus was in the process of rebuilding one stand at a time. The sheer joy of all the support, all united for the Celtic cause, the exuberance between us all, united together, we had our pride back. The joyous noisy singing, singing our hearts out for our pride in the team in our club. That feeling remained until the board started its various contortions as the new plc. exerted its control.I would never apportion blame of any kind to that support. So, its a question of ridding ourselves of the current board who are 100% responsible for the club being in its current state, they and they alone are the only ones to be blamed. For me,that is not up for debate.

The only real measure for progress is our standing in Europe and I wish the supporters were more consistent on this. In the last ten years we have been in the Champions league group stage four times. All of this is on Lawwell’s watch. Cautiously that means we have missed out on £120,000,000. He has taken well over £15,000,000 out of the club in salary and bonuses.

The trip to Dubai was misguided at best and only arms people, who already detest the club, with further energy for ridicule and scorn.

Next season I predict Sevco will qualify for the Champions league and if Lawwell is still here, we will not.

It is amazing that someone as incompetent and crooked as Dave King has actually out maneuvered one of the best paid CEOs in modern British football and Lawwell has let it happen.

What a feckin mess and we all saw it coming, except Lenny and his paymasters. Next question, who is left to play tonight? Who are the 13 players self-isolating? Maybe we should just cancel the rest of our season and start re-building now. However 20 plus 3-0 forfeits would see us relegated! Wow, what a year. Question. Does the team based at Ibrox ever get tested? Are their results ever known? Or, do they have a ‘special’ relationship with the Scottish Government?

Thanks Lenny, thanks a lot!!! I’ll give you a one-way ticket to Dubai and all the beer you can drink! We gave you a second chance but you didn’t give us fans one, for a match tonight that was a must win. Help ma boab, jings crivvens.

Hold your heads in shame to anyone who has backed these cunts Broony is a hibby so is griff. They aren’t Celtic. Young Turnbull along with rogic is our best players as is Soro get rid.

So where do you start with this one. In the history of clubs fvcking up this takes the biscuit. Just when you think we couldn’t fvck it up anymore. Never mind anything else we lose at Ipox to go 19 points behind and then swan off to Dubai. Oh well bhoys we’ve got a few days in the sun.

Then we have pictures of Lenny and Broonie on the beer, players not social distancing and not wearing masks. It’s enough to make the more paranoid amongst us believe it’s a set up. All self-inflicted.

Heads should roll for this, but they won’t cos they didn’t when we got knocked out at home to Ross fvckin County so why would they now.

Sevco haven’t even had to try too hard to cruise this league, we gift wrapped it for them

It won’t be a great loss not having Lenny in the dugout, hell we might even get a performance tonight. Well so long as it’s not Darren O’Dea if his commentary on Celtic TV is anything to go by. Sally McMoist is more knowledgeable than him.

I used to credit Pedro as being a very astute man but it’s hard to see quite how he’s fvcked this up so badly. 5 way agreement Pedro? Your legacy could have seen you immortalised, now you’ll probably need to sneak out the back door.

A complete and utter shambles created by ineptitude and sheer incompetence! Peter Lawell please take a bow, you will certainly have left your mark on the club when you go, whenever that is.

As I have said before on here I am sure Peter is a good accountant but as a visionary entrepreneur leading the club to exciting times he is not the man. He certainly does not represent good value for money at £3.5m pa considering that the club has missed out on 7 CL group stages in the past 9yrs loosing the club a minimum of £210m in TV revenue alone! He must have a string of excuses at the ready when he has his annual review with DD as to why he has failed yet again on delivering the clubs number 1 KPI! Peter as an accountant we can quite clearly say you know the cost of everything but the value of nothing!

But it is not only on financial criteria that he has failed the club, the whole 2012 liquidation of RFC / res12 / bias refereeing has shown that he has not stood up for the club and its shareholders has lead to some of the issues we face today regarding the lack of respect and liberty taking by the football authorities! let’s look at Res 12 I get that we needed to wait for due legal process but as soon as the facts/evidence had been established in a court of law we should have been asking deeply searching questions of the football authorities and if they could not answer these questions were not answered to our satisfaction we should have reverted to the law, we were defrauded out of millions by the football authorities, who are supposed to be independent and unbiased, and a competitor club! Then we have a leading referee seen drinking in a bar surrounded by supporters smiling/celebrating as if it is an everyday occurrence hours after that team had just beaten Celtic. That is completely unacceptable even before we stat discussing unconscious bias! My last point, though I could go on, relates to the closing of the top tier/empty seats during the Delia era if PL thought that went from 40k to 60k and waiting list just because Sevco were now in the top league then he is an even bigger fool (or more arrogant) than I thought! So Peter if you are reading this it was because we had a manager in BR who had the ability and that we believed could to take us on a journey to where we thought we should be playing, the CL group stages to start and who knows after that! But no you had to interfere in something you know little about and are certainly not qualified/trained in and what did we get, players the Mgr didn’t want and any players we did get were to little to late! Now I am not saying BR was/is perfect but think about our own jobs, if you are ambitious hard working and are not supported by your boss/company to achieve your goals, then guess what you leave and look for a company to achieve these goals!

I/we could add countless examples like above and these would just go to show that our CEO has learned nothing during his time in charge and that if he can’t be arsed then neither can I and a lot of others when it comes to STs and merch!

If you think about it though, even with 13 quarentined (whoever they might be) + injuries etc, our squad is still large enough to field an XI that belong to the first team pool. The youngsters will be mostly on the bench but don`t be surprised if the likes of Ross Doohan and Afolabi are temporarily called back from their respective loans for emergency cover. Welsh will definitely be involved (if not on the quarentine list) with Karamoko and Luca Connell in with a serious shout as well. However tonight’s game turns out, I want to see a list of resignations/sackings by tomorrow morning as this fiasco makes the Bolingoli incident look trivial. Won’t be holding my breath though.

The trip to Dubai was a kick in the teeth. I haven’t felt as low since they beat us on pens in the semi final.
They have abused our trust and our hard earned cash. I’ve had many celebrations i should have attended last year and this, many a funeral to show my respect and couldn’t, and those bastards in charge thought it a good idea to swan off to dubai after losing to the huns and out the cup by Ross County. Its over for ne not another coin. God Bless the Celtic fuck the rest

A campaign that has went from one disaster to another, yet the manager remains in his position.
A fuck up in Europe a disaster against the huns out the cup to Ross County and the league over in a 2 horse race before the split.
Yet somehow he has not resigned or been sacked.
Utterly awful and can only get worse.
The huns will now go from strength to strength and the 60k at celtic Park over. Thank you Peter and Lenny. I’ve supported this club through thick and thin, but Dubai and what has followed is too much.
I won’t be returning .
Good luck to all on here but I’m out now. Take care and God Bless the Celtic who are far more important than the cunts who have led us here.

I have now lost complete faith in the club from top to bottom, Desmond, Lawwell, the other board members, Neil Lennon & his coaches, not to mention a number of our ‘ players ‘.
No more goodwill from me, they all need to go!

Totally scunnered m8 can’t get rid of the knot in the pit of my stomach.
Out the cup out if Europe 10 was lost but we saved sevco.

To think that the guy who tested positive is out for a couple of months with an injury. Yet someone thought it a good idea to take him over to Dubai. Even if you agreed with the Dubai trip that didn’t make one bit of sense.
Are we at the bare bones where we don’t have enough medical staff to look after the squad home and away?
Its been shambolic, and its ending how a lot of us on here thought it would under lenny.
He must go and he must go now.
Send for Henrik.

TBH last night was a crap result, but it was refreshing to see someone different in the dug-out area, looking a lot more interested than podge & rodge

I do hope that Peter Lawwell covers the wages (if need be) of those at the Dubai training camp who catered to the Manager and Co.

The irresponsibility of this is Fucking Nuts.
