Celtic Diary Tuesday February 9: Is It All Lost ?

One of the fundamental differences between the good guys (us ) and the bad guys (them ) is our reaction to defeat.

 

Back in the days of the Old Firm, if Celtic lost, the support would be down for a bit, but our natural good humour, whetted by an occasional light ale, would soon put the defeat to the back of our minds. We’d shrug, blame the referee, moan about our defenders and that would be that until the next time.

We always knew that there were more important things in life outwith ninety minutes on a Saturday.

 

The other lot, though, never quite took to defeat without smashing a few pubs, or breaking a few fenian heads. towns all over Europe have suffered, usually because they had a cathedral, when the hordes descended and didn’t leave with the victory they felt they were entitled to.

 

That mentality is often quite a fragile mentality, and were Celtic not so far behind this season, one could almost be forgiven for thinking the title race isn’t over yet.

 

Celtic, still somewhat unimpressively recorded another win , this time against Motherwell, as gradually the ship began to get back on course.

 

“rangers “, still without a capital letter but with italics so we can distinguish them from the original club, drew with Hamilton, the late equaliser from the Lanarkshire side stunning the referee into forgetting to give the mandatory Ibrox penalty earlier, as even their most dedicated professionals start to show signs of complacency.

 

And it seems to be worrying them, beneath the surface, at least.

 

How else can you explain the outcry over a simple mistake in a headline ?

 

Blue Sea of Ibrox
@Ch110785
This is shockingly bad!

Greg do you know if the club are looking into this bigoted and sectarian headline?

 

 

Image

 

 

In this instance, the Sun have managed to be the first sports  mainstream media outlet, and . of course, this being Scotland, I use that term loosely, to upset both sides of the Glasgow divide.

 

The word “hunger “, hyphenated here to make two words, has offended the delicate little flowers over the river, but also upset not a few Celtic fans.

 

” Ger “, in this context, refers to Rangers, a club that was placed into liquidation in 2012, and the implication is that the new entity is the same as the old one, which annoys anyone who likes to see the truth in the media, especially Celtic fans, who feel their club has played by all the rules to keep afloat, whereas the Ibrox business was to dump one business and its debt and simply form another one and carry on as though nothing happened.

 

And “hun “, a term coined by various media throughout the world to describe their rampaging support, seems to have hit a chord with the Ibrox fans, and one feels that it suggests that fragility , which masquerades as a superiority complex, as the prospect of their first major trophy draws nearer.

 

In short, they can still make an arse of it, as none of their players , or management , have ever been over this course before.

 

Then again, the world is full of that mentality that criticises others for faults that they have deep within their pwn persona.

 

David Baddiel, the former comedian has often criticised those he feels are anti semitic, and rightly so. any form of bigotry or hatred based on a persons background or faith is abhorrent.

 

Yet back in the nineties, during his brief flirtation with fame, Baddie, along with Brummie comedian-itself a phrase that you don;t hear very often-l was responsible for something that even now turns the stomach.

 

Jason Lee, a forward with Nottingham Forest has a reasonable claim for a lost career after the two funnymen, again an extremely loose term, decided to make him a figure of fun because he had dreadlocks.

 

Baddiel, who likes to see himself as something of a humanist, behaved disgracefully, even “blacking up ” to further ridcule the man,

 

Image

 

 

Double standards, as ever, and as the media joined in the feeding frenzy against the player, it was all deemed to be in good fun.

 

Unless , of course, you were Jason Lee, trying to earn a living.

 

 

We’re sort of used to that kind of thing in Scotland, with one club steadfastly refusing even to employ catholics or Irish , and even now , long after their demise, they still perpetuate the traditions of that club, albeit with a different one, though as the saying goes its just a different shite these flies are buzzing around.

 

Not so much in employment policy, but in attitude, something that has now encompassed the British military, who they seem to see as part of their own identity, despite staunchly swarming to the shipyards every time there was a hint of warfare.

 

They even wanted to hire the Red Arrows, the aerobatic RAF display team, to fly over Ibrox to celebrate their title win, and started a crowdfund.

 

If its anything like their usual attempts to raise money, they’ll probably get enough to pay for the petrol for one of the planes, and even then someone will run off with it.

 

 

 

Tolkien would have said there’s a darkness falling over the lands, which when you include the plague and the way Westminster has hamdled it, with over 100,000 dead now, and he’d have been right.

 

But Tolkien also favoured the little guy, the chap would fought on without giving up, when the chips are down, when the breaks are beating the boys.

 

The chips are down, the breaks are beating the boys.

 

We’ve kind of adopted the superiority complex that was axiomatic with Ibrox.

 

Our support now is turning on, and not without good reason, it must be said, our club.

 

And yet it could be argued that the main reason the club hasn’t performed is the absence of the twelfth man in the stands.

 

Although a lack of fitness, tactical nuance and leadership probably has more to do with it.

 

 

If we really want this ten in a row, and nothing has been won yet, then the board, the manager and even the players must start to do their bit, as must we.

 

 

Celtic will shortly release their interim results for the year, which are not expected to be very good.

 

Thats despite selling season books and securing the Adidas contract.

 

 

As far as Scottish football goes, Celtic are far and away the wealthiest club.

 

Which begs the question about the vialbility of the others.

 

Will the league survive the next few months ?

 

 

Shouldn’t that be the focus of those in charge, searching for investment and sponsorship-shouldn’t the media be pushing that at every turn ?

 

Or is it all about one club getting the champions league money to survive ?

 

Which didn’t work the last time, by the way.

I think it still comes from the time that the mob out of ibrox had a game in goven for a *rangers team* and a german swastika team to take to the park ,have the home team line up with swastika,s all round the park ,stand and allow the seig heil salute that is why they still to this day are still remembered as huns ,,, if you know the history ,,hail hail .

The term hun was coined in the sixties by an English newspaper after they had yet again trashed an English city. It accurately describes them and how they behave and is nothing to do with being sectarian or bigoted.

This is who they are.

I think they were playing Wolves. The newspaper wrote that “they descended like a horde of marauding huns’ when describing their fans behaviour

Of course it’s all aboot 1 club getting a shot a CL money and thus securing their financial survival, that’s exactly what DD and Lawell had hoped and planned for, knowing you’ve put in place a completely incompetent manager and backroom staff to oversee this collapse, guaranteeing Celtic’s failure would succeed..The blue pound and OF cash cow wins everytime…

‘Baby Love, My Baby Love.’ Thanks for the memories Mary.

1988, Murray was rejected by the ‘Honest Men’ of Ayr United.
1988, Murray and Shoeless get an HBOS loan, £6.00 million buys Hun-co. 1897- club and company.
Later the top English Division players, came to the SPL, feted by the succulent lamb munchers, there was a feeding frenzy from the Scottish sick oh pants of the MSM. Murray was minted.
1994, The wee man from Croy arrived, Celtic was, rejuvenated, reinvigorated, rebuilt, reborn and reunited with its support. There must have been real fear at the bigot-dome, because….
2001, Mr. EBT appeared ( the big tax case) and Murray proposed that the * O.F. flit to the English leagues, was there collusion?
2005, *Rangers share issue fails to raise the cash required and MIM pays (cough) £50.2 million.
2005*Rangers beat Hibs to win the SPL with a full team paid with EBTs.
2006, *The club reports a £9.2 million contribution to EBTs.
2007, The City Of London Police raid Ibrox, as Bains shredder is red hot. (The wee tax case).
2010, *Rangers confirm that they are under investigation by HMRC.
2012, *Rangers hit the jackpot, the Celtic support began eating jelly and ice cream.

2012: The SFA licencing committee under Rod Petrie grant’s them a licence to compete in the C.L.
2012: The 5Way Agreement is sent out by Neil Doncaster of the SPL. All the governing bodies and most of the clubs are complicit in perpetrating the same club lies.
2013: The LNS Commission rules that the EBTs were legal, he made his ruling before the trials, any honest governing bodies backed by our club would make them revisit this wrongful decision. Its ruling allows them to retain titles and trophies won by EBT cheating.
This must be the biggest case of cheating in British sport, lies and dishonesty shame Scottish football, it must be revisited. The liquidation of Hun-co lives on, 231 victims, 6000 debenture seats.
Malicious Prosecution: Whitehouse and Clark awarded £24.00 million including costs.
Now: *Rangers liquidators (BDO) seek £57 million from the Duff and Phelps administrator.
PS. All Hail Mr. Custard… Clowns one and all.

Club and company?

Are you being sarcastic? Please tell me you’re being sarcastic.

He bought the club using other peoples money then ran up an £81M overdraft that the taxpayer had to pick up the tab when HBOS went pop.

Murray is a crook.

He bought the club, he destroyed the club and the club died. They cheated themselves to death. The CLUB.

There has never been a mention of company until they realised they needed to get 50,000 paying animals back on board to rival the pesky Tims. A total fabrication that defies corporate law and renders my qualifications null and void if this new fangled corporate fantasy was actually fact.

Look at the BBC’s shameful, though predictable, coverage of The Lord Advocate’s apology to the Duff & Phelps fellows whom have received more than £10M in compensation for malicious prosecution. “When they took over after the company that ran the club went into administration” and “the sale of Rangers”. Lies, utter fantastical lies.

Not a mention that the taxpayer yet again has to pick up the tab for a club that cheated everyone and a police force who trumped up another lie instead of prosecuting Murray.

They needed a scapegoat to pin the blame on and propagate their lies and fantasies. They cops who did so should have their pension stripped. The previous Lord Advocate who allowed this should also have his pension stripped.

Rangers, David Murray and all involved cheated every man, woman and child in this country. We have legal authorities, government and media who continue to ignore it, defend it, make excuses for it, blame others for it and then spit in our faces with the survival myth and victim lies.

Their cheating club died. Their cheating club was the company.

Damn them to hell and damn the arrogant swines who run our club for not crushing the survival lie at its inception.

Should have made it clearer. Founded in 1872 and became an Incorporated Company in 1899. We know what he did, what he was and who they never paid, 231 victims including the face painter. When MIM is included the staggering loss was nearly one billion pounds.
The Administrators Duff and Phelps (Clark and Whitehouse) each received £10.00 million pounds and £4.00 million pounds costs, for ‘Malicious Prosecution). Charles Green will also receive a huge sum and so will Imran Ahmed, also for ‘Malicious Prosecution’. The Liquidators BDO are seeking £57.00 million pounds from the clubs former administrators Whitehouse and Clark. History they say has a habit of repeating itself and the Huns just cannot help themselves, more will come.

No problem. It’s no wonder people get angry about it, the scale of it all and how he/ they got away with it without facing any kind of justice. I just look back on it, trying to find answers that might explain how it all happened and reminding myself of all of those who were involved. As for the BBC? they are a reminder that under the surface, that nothing has changed.

There’s a programme on TV called ‘Countdown To Murder’, and in it, the investigators look at the victims recent history to try to find out ‘who dunnit and why’. Thankfully as far as we know, no-one was murdered by any of Murrays actions. But, there was many, many victims of his criminality, also a major victim was Scottish football and especially Celtic football club. In his criminality, he had many accomplices, including Scottish footballs governing bodies, the SFA – SPL, the Scottish lamb munchers, the BBC etc. What is of interest to all of us, is how far did the Celtic board go into all of this. Like, EBTs, we too had one until they realised that it was most likely bent. Res.12 proved to us that they knew of the doubtfulness of the licence being wrongly awarded. The 5Way Agreement showed us of their complicit behaviour, was that all of their involvement? probably not. I will have missed out a lot, but, the very fact that we know what we all know, shames those that run our club and how they have tarnished our clubs reputation. In the programme, the investigators are not under suspicion, but where was the investigators of all the cheating? answer, doing SFA except helping the guilty. Shameful, criminal behaviour for all those involved. S.weet F.vck A.ll. – SFA….

Jason Lee gave up the game due to the abuse. “ Pineapple head” also being used with abandon on the deplorable Saint and Greavsie. Baddiel is an all time KOTW. Campaigns against anti semmitsm and writes children’s books. Twitter description just says ‘Jew’ because he thinks it helps destigmatize anti semmitism. He carries the weight of his people don’t you know. Also co wrote “Three Lions”. Dickhead

Love the Glasgow Herald’s photo of Lawwell with the Celtic emblem encircling his head like a halo. If not quite a sainthood yet, he is now in the process of beatification by the media and the necessary accompanying miracle must have him losing this year’s league title given the superior position Celtic were in. We are also subject to daily media reports of how Lennon is going to strengthen the team in the Summer. That’s alright then…

Lennon Must Go!

That’s the only thing that will restore us to primacy and no amount of deflection, denial or delusion will change that.

This season has gone, long gone.

The Glueless Gunt has now gone full Trump and is demanding ‘4 More Years!’ and like him let’s get this over with ASAP.

Every day that he stays around to stink the place out, is a day less to effect our recovery.

This will put us on the back foot for next season’s league and very likely kill our CL ambitions stone dead before they even begin.

This isn’t normal and we should not indulge this behaviour, which we would laugh at hysterically if the Huns were perpetrating it.

Lennon, Rodgers, Dalia Mobray, Strachan and O Neil are all the symptoms when titles are lost or consequences when titles are won of the business model adopted by Celtic since 2000.

The individuals are almost irrelevant. What is relevant is the business model and the competence of those charged with its oversight.

Either the model changes or the Board changes.

The manager is just the quick fit patsy in the middle. Getting a new one without changing the model or Board.

A plaster or paracetamol to take the pain of a broken leg away when an operation is needed.

Fix the cause, not the symptoms.

Valid to am extent but this imposter we have in our dugout wrecked this season and should never ever been a Celtic manager! He caused this him and him alone! Oh and never a ” Celtic man ” either never in a million years we know who they are ie Mcstay, Aitken , Burns, Mcgrain and guys like Grant , this fraud been made a multi millionaire from our great club and after he saw how a Celtic manager should win everything like brendan did he sneaked his way back in, look he was promised this job read Desmond athetic interview, disgraceful a man like this so under qualified could be given the job! So yes in a sense there many problems above but this season in isolation is all on the brass neck lennon, sooner he goes the better he has created a toxic feeling throughout the club and fanbase

For me its more nuisanced than that.

O’Neill and Rodgers were Tier 1 managers, in term of those we could attract.

Others, such as Strachan, had a modicum of success beforehand.

Lennon was a complete rookie the first time round and had no non-Celtic pedigree second time round.

Under any of the former we wouldn’t be in the predicament we are currently in whereby we’ve repeatedly made the same mistakes over and over again.

That doesn’t mean we would necessarily win the league but, at least, it would still be in play.

Yes, sorting things out both on and off the field is the optimum solution to maximise performance but, as shown 2016-2019, sorting out the former can largely negate the latter.

That might be unpalatable to many but it clearly was acceptable to a large number of others.

St Mirren’s current form has certainly been impressive by their usual standars and now they find themselves sitting pretty in 6th place having played fewer games than any other team in the league. They’ve managed more wins away from home than in Paisley but I’m sure that’s got a lot to do with the current conditions imposed by the pandemic. If they can keep this up I wouldn’t be surprised to see Jim Goodwin moving to a bigger club before too long. Don’t think either Soro or Christie will start for us tonight so there might not be any new changes to last Saturday’s starting line up. We can expect a tight game on a tight pitch with the final scoreline being (you’ve guessed it) pretty tight. Unless of course the lads show a real thirst for revenge and produce a spirited performance sprinkled with dazzling flashes of magical brilliance from our big Frenchman up front. COYBIG

Sadly Yoker free flowing football under this manager is something we haven’t seen.
I dont expect it to change tonight.
What is our strongest 11 is a question now no one can answer.
Our players look short on confidence and passion.
How far we have disintegrated from the invincibles.
Bain/Barkas
JohnJoe Welsh Ajer Taylor
Its weak and is the answer to why we are so poor compare that to
Forster/Gordon
Lustig Boyata Jozo Tierney
The answer is in front of us.
Middle to front we are still ok but the defence is a catastrophic mismanagement of a team.
I really now dont expect us to win, its a bonus if we do, but yo try to keep trying to score at least 2 goals every match to win a game of football then you can’t win trophies.
Tonight
Hopefully Christie remains out the team, he was no where near the class of Ntcham or Rogic yet managed to get in front of them.
A headless chicken of a player who plays for himself and not the club.
The team for me tonight
Hazard is the best keeper out the 3 of them.
Hazard
Johnjoe Welsh Ajer Taylor
Soro Rogic McGregor
Griff Edouard Ellynoussi.
Get the ball direct up to the front 3 quickly this is where our strength is
Fuck the passing to death the ball sideways good old fashioned up and at em. Let them worry about our front 3 and get us on the front foot. But we won’t and it will be same old.
Lennon out.
Good luck to Ntcham and El Hamed too good for Lennon to coach.
Who isn’t to be honest.

I assume that you heard that Soro had a prang in his car in the snow but apparently is okay.

Although we’ve had a slight upturn in the past couple of games, we’re still a long way away from the manager’s hyperbolic “tremendous”, “superb”, “it’ll take a very good team to beat us” rhetoric etc.

Kilmarnock are pretty awful at the moment, yet still matched us in shots (12) and we scored with the majority of our good chances.

Motherwell was a much better performance, if not result, but recent frailties resurfaced and it was ridiculous that we were hanging on desperately towards the end.

I thought Taylor had good games and noticeably his final ball was much better and, hopefully, that continues.

Tonight is far more difficult and we’ll see if we continue the progression of the last 2 games or whether its another false dawn.

3-2 Celtic for no other reason than I expect us to score and concede multiple times!

Reply to  The Cha

Hope you’re keeping well Cha. No idea about Soro’s conditon but he might well be rested as a precaution. Broonie can still do a job if used sparingly – I’d like to see young Luca Connell given a chance in the DM role but I’m afraid that’s highly unlikely and I also think Calmac is being overplayed and could benefit from a rest, but of course that won’t happen either. I’ve got to the stage where, with no trust whatsoever in the credentials of the entire coaching staff, I’m just hopeful that the players themselves, most of whom have consistently underperformed, can put in some real effort to raise their levels enough for the team to at least look in better shape by the time the new manager takes over (probably at the end of the season).It would take an amazing run of spectacular wins from here on in to suggest any possibility that a corner had been turned and I can’t really see that happening. The goalkeeping situation is a real mess – they might as well give the young guy Hazard a run of games to give him experience as he hasn’t been any worse than the othert two. The main positives at the moment are Eddy’s return to form and a few signs of improvement to the back four, I hope Kenny, Taylor, Ajer and Welsh get a long run of games together to see if they can gel. I agree that St Mirren are likely to make things very tough for us tonight as their tails will be up. At least the pitch is in reasonably good nick so the match will go ahead.

Yet here we are continuing on with our top players moving on coming to end of contracts and our best young talent all leaving the flight of the earls is sad to see.

I’ve been at Celtic park since the early 60s, being lifted over and going home and away.
I was one of only 3,000 at Clydebank as we drew 1_1 and only finished mid table in the league. Think it was 5th ?
But the difference was I thought we could and believed we could win every match.
Even when Barnes was there the football he got the team playing the first part of the season was brilliant great football, but factors went against him,stood and applauded Tommy Burns team as we won nothing but the football terrific.
So glory hunter no, 10 would have been nice but not the be all and end all. Just the way the club is being run takes me back to the save our celts days,stood outside,went to all the meetings so guys like you could have the club you deserve.

I was also one of the three thousand or so at that game at Kilbowie Park against the Bankies Jimmy but I was just a nine-year old back then. My most vivid memory was watching a drunken priest with a can of special brew in his hand having a good wee swear at the players and the ref. I suppose that must have been more entertaining than the game itself, maybe you saw him too. Yeah, Celtic ended up 5th that season and didn’t even qualify for Europe.

We beat a top 6 side tonight…4-0 in their stadium!!!
We have been shite in so many games, no denying that, so we can either bump our gums slagging off those responsible or we can try and lift ourselves and the team and believe that they can do the impossible and win the league. The unmentionables don’t do pressure very well..they’ve shown that before. They will drop more points, and every time they do and we win our match they’ll start to worry a wee bit more, doubts will creep in and they’ll make more mistakes if we close the gap. Winning our game in hand and the two games against them leaves 9 points in it. We totally dominated them in the last Ibrox match and only the red card gave them the win. They are celebrating too soon..and many of you are giving up too soon. It’s one thing to blame the people you think/know are responsible….but don’t give up on the team.

Good win against a poor St Mirren side. At least there was a bit more life to the play in the second half and particularly enjoyed Christie’s effort along with the Rogic goal from the first 45. Thought Broonie was back to his old self tonight – the long lay-off must have done him some good. A nasty late challenge on Steven Welsh, hope the big man can recover soon but it looked like a bad one as his ankle was completely rolled.

Ironically going through the forums pre match last night, the support were up in arms at Brown back in the team instead of Soro and Turnbull in the middle, the same midfield duo that oversaw the 2-1 defeat at home to St Mirren, as far as I think, the main reason for the new found clean sheets are the limited time for Duffy and Laxalt.

What you talking about?

It was only 1-0 when the Duffman came on and he inspired us to a 4-goal romp.

To be enthused about beating St. Mirren shows just how far we have sunk. Supporters were even querying if we would get a result. What it say’s to me, is that the policy of ‘just doing enough’ by the board, is a failed policy. We thought ourselves a Champions League club, we should be with the supporters money that is invested in the football department.

Celtic’s players average weekly wage £17,345. – St. Mirren’s players average weekly wage £1,509.
We should be miles ahead of every other team in Scottish football, miles ahead.

Defeating St Mirren or anyone else has always had a positive response, up until now that is, it seems you would have been happier with a defeat??

Pointing out how much standards and supporter expectations have fallen, does not equate to me being happier with a defeat. The average weekly wage of the Celtic players is £17,345, St. Mirrens is £1,509. That is at least 10 times higher, we should be beating EVERY team in the SPFL EVERY week, by miles. Paying for CL quality and getting mostly dross, if you consider that acceptable, then I do not.
