Celtic Diary Thursday March 4: Beaton To Face Firing Squad

If you think Nicola Sturgeon got a hard time at an internal inquiry yesterday, wait until the bold John goes up in front of the Referees Association to explain his erratic behaviour….

 

Beaton sent Gerrard off, awarding the Scouse Scolari two yellow cards after a half time rant following Beatons decision to book Alfredo Morelos for simulation after he dived to try to won a penalty, because it usually works.

 

“So you’re not speaking to me? I know why you’re not speaking to me – because you were f****** bang wrong. You’re bang out of order.” 

 

After the game, he carried on ranting…

 

“If someone wants to stop me being on the side of a pitch, don’t worry – I’ll celebrate when the time comes. I’m not worried. I’m looking forward to beating St Mirren. That’s my only worry.

“It’s a blatant penalty, it’s a stonewaller. I’m someone who wants to support officials because we are all human and we will make a mistake. 

 

 

It wasn’t, but having seen his side awarded penalties for handball against the goalkeeper this season, Gerrard may feel aggrieved at this new interpretation of the rules, where an offence actually has to be committed, and if you cheat, you get booked.

 

Interestingly, he took the line that all three officials were wrong, and he was right, hinting at a sense of entitlement that comes with having got your own way on everything else this season, and wondering now why he isn’t.

 

 

He’s losing it, which is surprising considering how close they are to winning their first ever major trophy. Perhaps because he’s heard what we’ve heard about a major Celtic push to regain their title next year, and he knows he can’t compete.

 

What if Celtic were to announce a game changing manager, a sign that they were about to move to a new level, just as he secured the title ?

 

 

 

It could be simpler than that, of course. Maybe he’s seen the accounts, and knows they’re fucked anyway.

 

 

Their support too, have that sense of entitlement, with several gathering outside the ground to watch as much of the game as they could…

They really have been making up their own rules as far as Covid is concenred, both on and off the field, and whilst we’ll have to allow them their moment of triumph, we must ensure that is all it is .

 

A moment.

 

 

The Scottish Cup is back on, and although ross County have entered, whoever holds the reins at the club until the new man gets here really needs to make a big push for this one.

 

I don;t mind two trophies being won by Gerrard this year-his first and last-but the prospect of a double is chilling, simply becuase although they have performed better than Celtic this year, they are not a better side.

 

We need to start putting things right, and the Cup is where we should begin.

 

 

To do that, of course, Kennedy needs to find a dozen or so players who want to do that.

 

At the moment , the club is in a kind of limbo, although purgatory is probably a better word, and it will be difficult to find enough players who have the heart for battle.

 

Kennedy needs to run the show as though its his job to keep, and at least then if he fails, he can fail with honesty.

 

If he adopts the attitude that he has nothing to lose, then maybe a gamble or two on a player or two will get the response he needs.

 

There are enough Celtic minded or potentially Celtic mionded players in the squad to do that, but it will take a monumental effort to raise their game to the level required.

 

A good way to start would be to ignore the loannees and concentrate on those who haven’t hinted that they want to move.

 

We could all do with something to cheer about this season, and ending it on a high with a trophy will go a long way to making us feel a bit better about next seasons prospects.

 

 

In the meantime, take absolutely no notice of some of the experts in the media talking about the unusually large amount of potential candidates for the job.

 

Seriously, there is a level of shite being spoken that can only suggest they’re all out to outshite Etims.

 

Like this…

 

Agbonlahor: Celtic fans would be ‘angry’ if Wagner got the job – he’s worse than Kennedy

Gabriel Agbonlahor, whoever he is, talking about David Wagner. whoever he is.

 

Report: Celtic want manager that Steven Davis labelled ‘one of the best’

 

Thats Michael O’Neill, by the way.

 

Celtic Fans Would Take Steve Clarke – Former Top Flight Attacker

 

Which is Steve Davis talking about Michael O’Neill, because someone felt his opinion was important to Celtic fans.

 

And my favourite, from CQN…

 

FORMER Celtic striker Scott McDonald has questioned the credentials of Eddie Howe to become Neil Lennon’s successor.

 

You get the feeling that people are saying things just to fill space on websites, which of course hardly ever happens here.

 

 

There are negotiations under way with a manager of quality.

 

No one knows, or at least is prepared to divulge, who that is.

 

Hence all the speculation.

 

It really pisses the media off when Desmond plays his cards close to his chest, and after the news that Lennon had agreed to go was leaked, there is little or no chance of this one getting leaked.

 

So, we’ll just have to wait.

 

While you are waiting, you could amuse yourself with this, a full . comprehensive history of “rangers “, the club who rise from the ashes of an entity that stood for racism, bigotry amd creative accounting, to shed that image, bar a few nuggets and take Scottish football by storm….

Mm, I doubt whether we’ll see it this side of ST renewal, sure plenty of titillation but little action.

Lawwell, who continues to act like he’s still in charge and has a right to make decisions for the future, has said Scott Brown will decide whether he stays as a player next season or takes up a coaching role.

Fine, if that’s what a new manager wants, but absolutely scandalous if either Brown himself or Lawwell are making that decision. That’s the kind of wrong-headed thinking that has landed us in the non-fine mess we’re currently in.

Perhaps that and Lawwell on the Board due to his “vast experience and ability to hold the powerful to account” is The Great Leap Forward that none of us knew we needed.

Are STHs going to let the club see the colour of their money before the club show theirs?

“they are not a better side.” Unbeaten in the league and still in europe suggests that’s a load of old cobblers. None so blind and all that.

They are far better coached for a start and unlike seasons past, there’s not many current Celtic players who would displace many of their preferred starting XI. Contrast that with Rodgers first season or any other season in the 9 for that matter. Certainly can’t say that for this season.

Results talk, bullshit walks. Until we actually start delivering on the park, attempting to suggest we’re not inferior feeds in to the delusion that prevents progress.

That farce with Gerrard and Beaton was all an act. All to pretend that everything is square and above board, to coin one of their masonic phrases.

Would Beaton have acted in that way if it was the first game of the season?

The truth will out when the BAFTAs are being allocated. The temptation to win another award will be too much to hide.

As for a top class manager coming in: Ill believe it when I see it but I wont even attempt to hold my breath. Mark McGhee will probably be wheeled out.

As they are so far ahead Beathun can show he is unbiased, but kill myself at the Hun media. Celtic win 1-0 scraped through, lucky, should have been beaten. Sevco win 1-0 magnificent, imperious, lead by a genius, stupid stupid Huns

From today’s Daily Rectum:-
“An 87th minute Alfredo Morelos strike sunk Livingston on Wednesday to move Rangers within four points of glory….”
What “glory” are they referring to? Celtic did a second 9 in a row and I don’t remember “glory” ever being mentioned…and near the start of this season they never referred to Celtic going for glory…no, it was all about “how can *rangers stop Celtic winning ten in a row”.
I really hate the Scottish free (biased) press.

Jimmy, you’re confusing “better” with Kennedy and Lennon vs Beale.
I would accept “better” there (on Beale’s ability to get the best out of the squad they’ve got).
Beale is better, that scum is not. Think about it: penalties ‘won’ by new huns and none against.
Covid admittance and repercussions of virtually nil. A new company who gets what its bastard parent got………tolerated (by Lawwell and Co)
Early Yellow cards

Covid exceptions as never truthfully reporterd vs Covid (responsibly sanctioned) against us, Dons, et cetera

Fukk this……..I can take no more and WILL take no more…….Jabba and his SMSM ‘friends’ will be brought to task, brought down. Until an honest 4th estate exists there’s nothing worth the consideration MORE than that.
You know what? I no longer give a fukk.
That’s bad news for some.

I had to take a holiday from Port as I drank that much of it, it was seizing up my joints…….and I could quietly build a joint that went all around the room and was so cool, FN hell, takes me back.
Anyway, Capitalist Celtic has done for me, should’ve seen it coming…..Kellys, Whites, Desmond, et cetera. Dom McKay (or whatever he’s called) can make NO DIFFERENCE unless the old bastard DFD decides his ‘legacy’ is worth more than his multi-millions
BUT, your shy intellect, shows me that someone else is paying attention.
I use “shy” as some of what you post is incomprehensible to me……..but I ALWAYS suspect it’s for GOOD.
