Celtic Diary Tuesday January 12: The Reality of The Situation

As expected, the club confirmed that Chris Jullien tested positive for covid-19, and worse than expected, thirteen players, one manager and one assistant manager were told they had to self isolate.

 

The statement from the club read;

 

Celtic Football Club confirmed today that Christopher Jullien has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating at home. 

We wish Christopher a speedy recovery.
 
While all of the other members of the squad and backroom team have tested negative, we have been informed by the authorities that, having been deemed ‘close contacts’, Celtic manager Neil Lennon, assistant John Kennedy and 13 first-team players will be required to self-isolate on a precautionary basis as required by the current regulations.  

The Club would like to thank the Scottish FA, JRG and the Scottish Government for their assistance in managing this case. Celtic will, of course, fulfill its fixture against Hibernian this evening.  
 
Clearly we are hugely disappointed, as we know our supporters will be. The contacts were identified during the period from Wednesday last week, primarily around flight and team coach travel, during which time Celtic applied the same rigorous protocols used for pre-season training camps, UEFA match travel and for all domestic match arrangements in Scotland.    

These protocols have served us well in the past, as the Club has not had one positive case in our own ‘bubble’ until now. As we have already stated, Celtic’s decision to travel to Dubai for a training camp was for performance reasons. Whilst we were in Dubai, the announcements made on January 4 significantly changed the COVID landscape.  

The reality is that a case could well have occurred had the team remained in Scotland, as other cases have done in Scottish football and across UK sport in the past week. 

 

Bollocks. The reality is that the case occured halfway round the world during a mid season jolly.
 
Celtic has done everything it can to ensure we have in place the very best procedures and protocols. From the outset of the pandemic, Celtic has worked closely with the Scottish Government and Scottish football and we will continue to do so. 

 

Can I suggest that if this is an example of the very best procedures and protocols, it might be worth looking at a couple of alternatives ?

 

Such as not flying halfway round the fucking world, for instance ? I’ve noticed most people are staying at home these days, only going out when its essential, food, medicine and so on.

 

Thats what I’d call an example of  the very best procedures and protocols. 

 

 

What that statement doesn’t say is who sanctioned the trip. There is no mention of who came up with the idea, or who ultimately signed it off.

 

Someone withing the corridors of Celtic Park is responsible for making the decision that will ultimately be deemed to have driven an enormous wedge between an already disconnected boardroom and support.

 

 

We’ve heard a couple of excuses, in particular in relation to the decision to take Jullien on the trip. Gavin Strachan, who has taken temporary-I fucking hope its temporary- charge of team affairs said;

 

“It was to maintain his treatment with the backroom staff, he went over there so we can get him back as fast as we can. 

 

Yet curiously, none of the backroom staff who were maintaining his treatment have been asked to self isolate, if you read the statement, and therefore one must assume he’s talking shite, presumably in a bid to secure the first team position on a more permanent basis.

 

Either that or the statement is wrong,

 

Or both.

 

 

So, with Hibernian, unsurprisingly, somewhat reluctant to take the field against Plague FC last night, viewers were treated to a watered down affair, with Celtic yet again failing to hold on to a lead and the game finishing 1-1.

 

That leaves the prospect of a tenth successive title fairly unlikely, although we shouldn’t give up until it’s actually lost.

 

There are few signs that the current side under the current leadership are capable of turning the season around, and a decision now has to be made on not whether or not Neil Lennon keeps the job, but on who replaces him.

 

The downward spiral, admittedly at the behest of a board conservative in politics and nature, has been frighteningly swift since the Lurgan man was given the remit to stop all that nonsense about taking fitness, training and diet seriously.

 

Players of the calibre of Keiran Tierney and Virgil van Dijk have been replaced by loannees, and furthermore, Piers Morgan, the fellow on Good Morning Britain, where people go to gaze at Susannah Reid , tweeted yesterday something that sticks , initally at least, in the craw of some supporters…

 

Piers Morgan
@piersmorgan
Great Arsenal mysteries of our time: 1) Why has goal machine Aubameyang stopped scoring? 2) What the hell’s gone wrong with Willian? 3) Why did we pay £72m for Pepe? 4) How did we get away with only paying £25m for Tierney? #ARSNEW 
 The Tierney they paid £25m for, as part of a five year loan deal, was an investment in a player who had suffered from being forced to play when carrying a potentially career ending injury.
 It’s credit to Arsenal and their professional and competent medical staff that the lad is playing at all.
 Which, of course, might mean he will renew his loan at the London club when this one is finished.
 And there is another part of the problem, highlighted in the words of Strachan , when he said Jullien travelled for medical purposes, when in fact, the last time he was injured he went to see his own doctor to get better, which hardly suggests confidence in the staff at Celtic.
 We must also face up to the reality that no one in the world of management is going to be banging on Peter Lawwels door demanding a shot at the Celtic job. Part of that is, of course, because behind Peter Lawwell’s door, you’ll find Peter Lawwell.
 If the likes of Brendan Rodgers are telling others in management circles how difficult it is to work with Lawwell, and you can be sure any prospective manager would ask him, and I’d imagine Rodgers would offer an honest opinion, then we might just find the best we can hope for is Jack Ross, or somone from the lower reaches of English football, who would be off as soon as another offer came in.
 Between 1966 and 1974, Celtic regularly featured in European finals and semi finals. The club was respected off the pitch and feared on it.
 Now we are actively , it seems, encouraging the competition from a nine year old club, who paid under the odds for the assets of a liquidated club, and calling it a business model.
 Time indeed for change.

Not much I could add to this 100% accurate assessment of how ( not why ?). Our once proud club is being gradually dismantled by mr Desmonde and his lapdogs, with lawell being allowed by DD..to impliment his finger on the Putin button with his sheer arrogance towards the supporters

The Diary must be struggling to quote the weasel Morgan and to suggest the best we could get is the likes of Jack Ross continues in the downsizing thought process.
We snatched a draw from victory last night where the lump of phosphorus thrown in a puddle that is Laxalt charged in again to give away a free kick that the Keystone Cops, particularly Hazard again, failed to clear. Taylor for Rasputin Laxalt after we scored could have helped. Frimpong again poor, caught inside and ineffective going forward, Big Tom has done as much as he can and should be let go although having him press their centre half, such as it was, would not be his idea of how to win the game. Just on this, our total inability to press allowed them to fire forty and fifty yard balls at wide positions at will putting pressure on Soro and the full backs. In the game, we seem unable to press players in possession allowing them to pass between us and build moves up the park. It’s infuriating how we press like an amateur side giving encouragement to the opposition from the off. Disappointed in Harper who looked lost, Johnston who got lost and Duffy who should get lost. How did it come to this…? Eat Sleep Downsize Repeat.

Celtic supporters will follow the team, but the current board and management have sunk to the level of the Kelly’s and Whites. The attitude at Parkhead towards the fans in the old days was they know their place. This seems to be the mantra of DD and Lawell who clearly are not Celtic supporters, fans are different.
Last night the team was no worse than the full squad, plenty of rush at them but no finesse.
Sky TV and its progeny are loving this, where we go from here can only be upwards, but we need a strong leader, love the drivel that purports to be from the board, North Korea could not do any better.

Rodgers (sic) left when compo agreed (£10m, a decent wedge and enough to source a decent manager but…).

When he left, the league was in a similar position to as it was last season when it was called. No one other than Huns objected to that.

Lennon took over an all conquering side/squad/ethos and has totally decimated it.

In his first spell he won a pitiful 2 out of 9 Cups, when there was first a dying and then no top league Huns.

It’s easy to take over an all conquering side but building one from scratch is infinitely harder.

Destroying the former is an achievement but not a good one.

Cha, best ignore Lennon FC from now on. When you think that there’s some lads from Buenos Aires that have seen Celtic more times than him then you just have to take a step back and just laugh at the arsehole. His hatred of Rodgers is quite breathtaking when he obviously knows that Lawwell undermined him big time. A man with dignity and principals would not accept that position, so he left to go to a proper functioning club. On the other hand, we have Lawwell’s puppet, hanging about like a bad smell with his integrity diminishing daily. while plunging the club into some of its darkest days since 1994.

The only way we will get the set up at the Club right, is to organise a fans’ buy out. The current board are incompetent and not interested in the welfare of the Club or the supporters. They are happy to bank their dividends each year as they totally ignore our pleas for better governance throughout the Club. Dermot Desmond seems to have lost all interest in matters Celtic so it’s time for him to sell up and piss off with the rest of his merry band of profiteers.

Handed the flag to the other lot on a plate. Reminds me of George Bush, another idiot, reading childrens books to a school class with his security team while the twin towers collapsed. Not a clue.

The only crumb of comfort in this is that we are still a better side than those across the city . There is a nucleas of a good team there, yes eddy and ajer will go, maybe Christie but they will be replaced and the bulk of the side is still in my opinion better than that group of ageing players and journey men . This is not an ageing team on its knees , we just need a new coach to take them to the next level . Philip cocu had a shocker at Derby but done great things with psv . He brought through young players who have went on to be super stars and created an identity for that club. He is available

Edouard has given up has went backwards as has McGregor Ntcham and Rogic under Lennon.
It should have been sorted after the cup final he should have been thanked and sent on his way. Not given the job.
Yes a new manager will bring out fresh ideas but this squad is weak millions have been wasted on duds.

Ewing Graham reports in today’s Times: A recent study by Equilar the California based company which provides data about the earnings and compensation packages of CEO, reveals that the median tenure for chief executives is 5 years. The reason for this turnover is because shareholders demand an injection of fresh ideas to avoid stagnation. Lawwell has been at Celtic since 2003. He appointed Neil Lennon as manager in the Hampden showers without interviewing other candidates. He failed to deliver on John McGinn (currently valued at £40.00 million) Resolution 12, or the ten. He signed off the ill judged Dubia debacle. Many supporters think that his time is up. No shit Sherlock. So, apart from stating the obvious Resolution 12 gets a mention despite an omerta like silence from the Scottish media.

Its never been ruled out that you can catch the virus more than once.

I think Tierney was able to play due to different isolation periods in Scotland and England.

There may also be something that he was able to train on his own at Arsenal, whereas Eddy was stuck in a hotel room, so he may have been (just) out of isolation but unfit to play.

Who is the club doctor? Did he/she sleep in when they covered infectious diseases? Few businesses are privileged to have a medical opinion on tap. Why is Celtic’s mute or was their opinion on the Dubaiious jolly ignored? The latter is a hanging offence.

Who’s this twatter prick Ronnie O’Connor? Does he wear a fireman’s suit? Does he class himself as an Uber Celt? Is his tongue brown?

What a stronzo.

There’s a few of them in the Lawwell Loyal for whom the grate (sic) man can do no wrong.

There’s a teacher/education writer I follow, who echoed the criticism of Dubai that most people hold and he accused him of being a Hun and a moron.

It’s not natural that you get enraged by, effectively, strangers on Twitter, especially if they’re simply stating the majority view.

Whether he and the others are real people or bots or paid lackeys of Lawwell I don’t know.

And on the million of your money to help those less fortunate…”So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.” Indeed Peter you have. Arrogant fecker.

I’m having really weird dreams, last night I dreamt that I was at a works do, I met this lass and we hit it off, everybody was going home except her boss who went out for a slash, she leapt over me and we started having it full tilt, it wasn’t top sex, the ooh’s and ah’s, but it wasn’t bottom sex, it was very enjoyable but we had to stop as her boss was coming back, no, this was middle sex, middle sex FFS. Middlesex, hahahaha.
