Celtic Diary Saturday July 31: Season To Bring The Reaper ?

The domestic season starts here.

 

Probably the most important season in our history, with more at stake than perhaps meets the eye.

 

 

Firstly, there’s the fairly obvious target of winning something this year.

 

After four consecutive trebles, unequalled anywhere in the world, or likely to be, the club found itself at a crossroads. The mythical ten in a row, somehow deemed more important than the four year domination in all competitions, didn’t materialise, some players simply felt they’d achieved all they could at the club, and others found it a bridge too far to drag them along to the finish line.

 

It was the end of an era, and the rebuild has already begun.

 

Wrestling the league title back from “rangers” is of paramount importance, because should they retain it, they will get direct access to the millions of pounds paid out for UCL group participation, and that means they will be able to pay the bills accumulated since their 2012 inception, and the plans put in place by the 5 way agreement will have borne fruit.

 

That makes me think that we’re about to see cheating on an industrial scale. If you thought it was bad up until now, you’re about to have your ghast flabbered even further.

 

 

You only have to look at their business in the transfer market….

All they have to do is keep kicking the can down the road and combined with the European income from this year, should they find any sort of group stage football, and the Old firm will be back.

 

 

However, Celtic have removed a large chunk of last years problems, and a fairly sizable portion of the playing staff. you get the feeling that the coaches would have gone as well, but as a stranger in town, Ange Postecoglou probably felt he needed to keep someone around if only until he didn’t need both hands and a flashlight to find Lennoxtown.

 

One thing is certain though, judging by his performances at press conferences and interviews, he won’t be afraid to call out some of the more obvious honest mistakes…

 

Yesterday, he was asked if he was up to speed on tonights opponents Hearts, and his reply was brutally frank. He said;

 

“I’m still on the same planet mate, I haven’t come from outer space.  

 

On  a side note, he slipped into his native tongue here, known as “Strine “…the closest I can find for the meaning of the word “mate ” (Strine) is “you fucking idiot ” (English )

 

The full video of the exchange is here…..

The conservative world of Scottish football wants its old firm back. It will do anything to get it.

 

 

Meanwhile, there are fears for the well being of this man..

 

Appointment of Dominic McKay as Chief Executive Officer | celticfc.com

 

 

He hasn’t been seen for a while, and friends, relatives and workmates are worried about him.

 

If you see him, let us know and we’ll get in touch with the relevant authorities.

 

 

 

The game tonight…8pm kick off….is on the telly and we may see a couple of more new faces, with Swedish defender Carl Starfelt and Japanese forward Kyogo Furuhashi both ready to make their debuts.

 

Starfelt should start, with Furuhashi on the bench, the idea being to replace Oddsone Edoaurd when it becomes even more apparent he doesn’t give a toss, which will probably be around five past eight.

 

 

A win is important, for confidence purposes and to put pressure on “rangers “, who somewhat bizaarelt felt the need for their captain to appeal publicly for fans not to boo any player who takes the knee.

 

Thats the anti racism gesture, by the way, and not the style of play favoured by Ibrox greats such as John Greig and other cloggers.

 

 

This extract explains….

 

Sadly, at some stage during the season, every one of our BAME players received racist abuse online. That is a sad indictment on society and shows just how much work still needs to be done to eradicate it. Add in the fact one of our players received sickening racist abuse on the pitch. Racism is a problem in football, that is an inarguable fact.

As a team and as a club, we must not only stand up against racism, but fight against it- every single day. Whenever our players were abused last season, the way in which our fanbase stood behind us was nothing short of amazing.

Many people have given arguments for and against certain political organisations. Arguments against their actions, and what they purport to stand for. I’ve no interest in all that, neither do my teammates or coaching staff. We will take the knee to stand against racism, nothing more, and nothing less.

That is why we will take the knee prior to our games. This is a very simple, but we hope, effective gesture. It is a symbolic stance against racism, nothing more and nothing less.

At the start of each game this season, and throughout the 90 minutes, please show the world exactly why you are a special fan base. Support every player who is proud to wear the badge of the famous RFC.

We are as strong as strong can be.

I cannot wait to hear you roar from the stands of Ibrox Park.

James Tavernier

Rangers Captain 

 

 

The fact he felt the need to ask them not to be racist means that it’s a real issue among players, players we hear are already whispering about leaving due to the toxic nature of their environment.

 

 

If Tavernier wants to see their true colours, he should conduct the players in a chorus of  “Soldiers Are We “…..it appears there is no I in BAME…..

 

 

Anyhoo, it’s time to take the dogs out, then off to Liverpool to get my pockets picked, before settling down to watch the game.

 

 

Who could ask for more ?

Great picture but it only shows one half the team, the other six are perhaps, Ian Bankier – Peter loyal – Eric Riley – Stewart Robertson (taking Peters place on the SPFL board) – Neil Doncaster – Stuart Regan, with substitutes being the new Compliance Officer – Ian Maxwell. Led by Donkeys was an old term from WW1. But the current Celtic board? well calling them Donkey’s would be a disservice to Donkey’s. They have got what they wanted, their beloved ‘OF’ back. Why that would be the case is one of life’s perpetual mysteries, because our loss of revenue through missing out on the C.L. monies will be monumental and theirs getting it would save them from going belly up. FFP in football is like a Ken Dodd show without the laughter, with only ‘tears for souvenirs’ for us’, while Scottish footballs governing bodies as usual turn the other cheek, to their total disregard for it. I hope that the board enjoy their “Thirty Pieces Of Silver”, because the stench of betrayal is reeking out from the offices at Celtic Park. Successful businessmen my @rse.

Edouard made 5 good runs in their box that no one pick him out for.

He also ran back the whole of the pitch in the 111th minute to try to recover the ball.

Yeah, he’s not in the best form of his career but (ironically) the lazy stereotyping of black footballers as ‘lazy’ is just BS.

Instead of pointing at the racism of the Huns perhaps we should be addressing the dog whistlers in our support.

Scotland’s top scorer by far last season, a feat that would have seen Morelos crowned POTY if he had achieved it.

The same sh1te that Sinclair got despite being the star of the Invincibles and scoring and assisting nearly 100 goals in under 3 years.

The ones that criticised them are probably the same ones, pre-moral panic, that uncritically supported the 5 year waste of space.

You’re accusing the Tic support of racism against Edouard, Cha?!

After all those years of unrequited love?!

He’s getting criticism because his head’s clearly not in it and given the absolutely SHITE state of affairs behind the scenes at Parkheid I can’t say I blame him, though he really should be doing better.

However, as Martin, Brendan and too many players who left down the years proves, those Tory cvnts on the board do not I’ve one flying fvck either about Celtic nor the health and welfare of ANY of their employees.

Just ask Scott Sinclair, Craig Gordon, Johnny Hayes, Mikael Lustig or Griffiths the day he got hit wae a Buckie bottle and then got booked for it.

Did Lawwell or The Big Moustache come out and say how much they abhor such behaviour and will no longer tolerate it?

That they will no longer pit up with our club captain being confronted by fat cvnt Huns on the pitch at Ibrox?

Did they fvck!

All they said was ‘Rangers are a great club with a long history’ and let the 5 Way Agreement do the rest.

If you think the Celtic support are racist, especially against their former hero, you need to lay off the d r u g s, mate.

Now they’re trying to tell us that the wage bill is 53 million quid a year …

Who the fvck they giving all that to?

I’ve told you for 6 full year where it’s going and it’s not to the players, that’s for sure.

Think offshore accounts and the unlisted parts of the expenses and you should get the gist of it.

Though given I’ve laid all this out in full detail on this site multiple times over & over I very much doubt you’ll get it by yourself.

I’ll start my comment that relates to The Board as needing changed by challenging some of the ideas surrounding Resolutions to the AGM and their usefulness in achieving accountability from them using lessons from Res12 in 2013 and 2019 (there were 2) andRes11 in 2020.

All these resolutions got answers from the Board.

Those answers were at best disingenuous and in 2020 that they were so led to Res11 where Celtic undertook to engage with the SFA on the process they abandoned in 2020 to investigate breaches in UEFA FFP in 2011 by Rangers FC Plc (their actual name at time of liquidation)
.
That was a change from Celtic’s previous policy of avoiding responsibility for pursuing Res12 themselves and not shareholders representatives, something that the shorter rem “requisitioners” has hidden. It wasnt the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse alone, it was a group of small shareholders seeking answers.

The CST, once the subtleties of Resolution 11 had been pointed out decided they will hold Celtic to account by monitoring progress by Celtic.

At the coming AGM Celtic can be asked what progress they have made in ensuring football governing rules are actually applied and how can they sell tickets without giving assurances the game is fairly governed, although 50k ST holders don’t appear to think that important, well not until now when it will be all important this season.

This is not the only issue for which The Board need to be made accountable. There is the matter of what shareholders were told at 2019 AGM in respect of UEFA licence and the 5WA which was not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Now even if a well worded evidence backed Resolution seeking answers is voted down, (the reason most folk consider them a waste of time) , the fact that one is tabled means it appears in the AGM papers circulated to ALL shareholders.

This Celtic do not like, so Resolutions give leverage for change much stronger than any banners or noise. When that idea takes hold they will become the weapons of choice and if enough shareholders meet the criteria to request an EGM then it need not wait a year.

Further: the media report The AGM and and Resolutions tabled and Celtic like their dirty laundry being exposed even less, that is more leverage.

A Resolution requires answers to be given, truthful ones, and that is accountability.

So when a Resolution which CST are working on is finalised and made public, please don’t think it is a waste of time. Resolutions are anything but, and the one under construction aims to achieve change but in a way that restores trust between the supporters/shareholders and the Board because trust is a two way endeavour.

Oh one more thing about the late Res12 itself, having conceived Res11, it can claim, although not intended, the one thing that drives blue bampots mad and that is the letter from UEFA Club Licensing Chief Andre Traverso that sets out that UEFA consider the current club Rangers FC Ltd as a new one. It drives them nuts trying to explain how new means the same.

So nutty does it drive them they claim it’s a fake but Ralph knows better.

The Celtic Underground – Harry Brady, did a piece on August the 22nd. 2016, with regard to EUFA’s Head of Club Licencing and Financial Fair Play, Andre Traverso Quoting; that UEFA Confirm This – Rangers are a new club. Of course we all know this but the letter confirming it coming from UEFA’s Andre Traverso is part of Harry’s piece. Now I wonder where he got that?

Yes, but its still available as a record of their demise.

They cannot listen to the truth, it hurts them too much. The Wee lambs.

Bollox.

The question was never raised, the information was volunteered and it sets the record straight. Without it Celtic supporters would have had nothing to counter the same club claims.

Further its impact has still to come out as the danger the 5WA that Celtic accepted to the integrity of Scottish football finally dawns on them.

It just takes time for folk to realise the importance of loss of integrity as the consequences of its lack take time to manifest themselves.

At some point folk will stop enabling the pish to be ripped out of them and that will be the victory. The Traverso letter is a stepping stone on that path.

UEFA answered that anomaly confirming what the UEFA website covered.

The lie of 55 – Phil Mac Giolla Bháin (philmacgiollabhain.ie) the club before and the current club being a feature in their answers.

The real problem is had the titles been removed as they should have been but for vital information being kept from Lord Nimmo Smith, then what the UEFA web site would show is that the Rangers title was number 50. It would also show 5 titles were removed because they were one by unfair means.

UEFA are not responsible for the way the SFA created a myth. They can only reflect what the SFA do.

The SFA are made up of member clubs. Celtic are one, they got a copy of the Traverso letter and if it is a pyrrhic victory that is because Celtic said nothing, not because of a failure in the Resolution process which brought out UEFA’s stance.

I am not aware that he refused to clarify. The SFA were in panic mode when they got their copy so got then STV reporter Grant Russel to get a different version of Traverso’s para published omitting the new club/company reference.

I think he was just basing his reply of Article 12 of UEFA FFP, ie stating a fact unaware of its impact here.

There is NO reference anywhere to a holding company or an operating company. The nearest is in Art12 but the terms defined and used is football company which has to have a written contract with the club that is a member of the SFA to get a licence to play football.

It is absurd to suggest that a football company is competing in Scottish football.

Regardless of the absurdity the current club or company applying for a UEFA licence in whatever form are NEW.

I agree but UEFA’s complicity in clear in listing the achievements of Oldco under Sevco’s name, thereby giving the impression of continuation.

You mentioned that because Sandy Bryson withheld information from animosity Smith they should only have 50 titles but even that is preposterous as that too is perpetuating the continuation myth.

For the fact is Sevco should be listed as the wholly New Football Club that it is on the UEFA pages whose sole achievements are One Scottish Premier League title and a few good Euro results.

UEFA were as aware of Murray’s financial problems at the time as Phil or any of u were, his massive share issue/switcheroo dumping Rangers’ debt into Murray Internationals was all over the papers the same as Tore Andre Flo’s ‘Tax Free Wages!’ was being trumpeted by the SMSM as some kind of fabulous genius miracle.

But I knew even then there was trouble brewing at Ibrox and it is improbable if not ridiculous that the crooks at UEFA didn’t, as monitoring money is their absolute prime concern.

In pyramid schemes all money flows to the top so all the bosses get there cut and our societies are structured specifically in this manner.

Murray had to pay off UEFA just like every other club, even Celtic, because when such vast sums are involved every crook and his granny makes sure they get a tasty bite.

UEFA knew along what Murray & the SFA were up to, they all attend the same meetings and share the same handshakes and bare the same nipples and lick the same @rses, so of course they know what’s happening.

Same thing with Lizzie herself …

You’d think she’d be furious at the treachery of one of her own men ripping her taxman off like that but the reason men get knighted in the first place is because they’re wily fvckers who know how to work a good number and that’s why Murray got to keep his knighthood.

He also got to cherry pick the tastiest parts of his own company, while it was in liquidation, (!) so that he could go on tearing up green belt land across Edinburgh in order to build the highly profitable Gogarburn estate.

How much did David Murray pay back to the taxpayer out of his own bulging pockets?

To the hospitals, fire services, face painters to whom he collectively owed almost one billion pounds Sterling ..?

Nothing.

He didn’t have to pay a penny.

Because ‘It was the company wot did it’, and that was good enough for everyone, Lizzie and her peelers included.

Murray still lives in luxury and for those ripped off it’s just more ‘Sayonara, suckers’ from the Uber rich to the rest of us.

His place as a top boss in the ruling Speculative Society of Scotland is assured forevermore.

Oh, and you try asking Traverso to repeat his new club assertion …

I can tell you from experience he will simply pretend that you’re not there.

If Sevco qualify for this seasons UCL and win the league to walk in to next seasons UCL, we are looking at them raking in £60-£70m. In addition, as they would have already qualified, they will probably be away to the USA or the Far East in July next year to play in a tournament with Premier League teams and rake in another £5m.

All this while we will be trying to negotiate the non champions route again without success. We will be done for and I fear for us for years if the huns get that kind of money and potentially continually qualify automatically.

We MUST win the league this year and I would sacrifice Europa League football to try to do it.

I suppose what is worrying what was wrong last December hasn’t moved on. When Frimpong left we needed a quality right back, when Julien hit a serious injury we needed a centre half. Duffy was a good choice, like Mowbray way back, which seemed a good idea at the time. It didn’t work, react to that sort it. It’s called management.
I don’t think Eddy isn’t trying but what he had for us when he first came in is gone, another club will probably rekindle it, replace him. Are we broke? Can we not recruit a decent striker without having to wait for a fee to come in?
There is a major question about how our finances have been managed if that is the case. Ajetti couldn’t make it at West Ham, why was he going to make it with us?
I feel sorry for Ange, no planning no support, dumped in at the deep end. The new club took a punt on Gerrard, amazingly with his coaches he has done well there. The Lyin King got that right, we have fiddled about in a clueless fashion and paid the price. I fear for this season and we haven’t played out first game, playing catch-up might be the best we can hope for.

Piss-poor defending at set pieces has let us down yet again. 80% possession and sod all to show for it yet again.

Madden was right behind Calmac, so, he had a first class view of the HD foul. Still cannot defend a set piece, Soutter completely unmarked and Bain 5yards off his line, why?
It bugs me when everyone goes full Tonto backing the new manager before they have time to assess his capabilities, after all Lennon was critisised for being weak because he never brought in his own assistants. Soro, everyone was backing him after only two games, but he’s not the answer to holding mid. his stats are mince, that’s the role that Bitton held, one thing he isn’t is a central defender, so why not keep Welsh in central defence and let Bitton play in his natural position. What a shambles.
