Celtic Dairy Thursday September 15 : Quality Street Kid Shows His Quality

Last night I spent an hour or so in the company of quality Street kid and former player and manager of Celtic Lou Macari, who these days  not only puts his name to a shelter for the homeless in Stoke on Trent, but is actively involved in making it work.

Using a council building that was once a place to pay parking fines, he, and his support staff, have done an incredible job in putting together a safe place for those who have fallen on hard times to put themselves back together and start afresh.

A couple of weeks ago this website received a couple of hudred quid, and ran a competetion to find a winner. Devoy 45 won, and suggested the money be put to good use, and having read an article about the work being done at the Macari Centre, it seemed the obvious choice, and the suggestion was taken up by Devoy, and so last night I went along to hand over the money.

Lou and his staff would like to thank everyone involved, and the funds are much appreciated.

As the council in Stoke, and a few agencies are unwilling or unable to meet the homeless crisis head on-some refuse to take people in unless they are in receipt of benefits, which you could argue is taking advantage of others misfortune, Lou and his staff have undertaken a non judgmental stance, and every night there are twenty beds available for those who have nowhere else to go.

More interesting for me, and worthy also of praise, is how the staff deal with their guests. The simple act of referring to them as guests is important as it makes them feel a little bit more human, and it has much less of a stigma attached.

The guests are dealt with by people who live in the real world, and not by those who read about it in college, as part of some made up qualification in social studies.

These are real people dealing with people who have real problems, which to my mind is the only way to confront the problem.

As with foodbanks, it can take a lot for a fellow to ask for help, and the Centre deserves praise for recognising that. All too often, agencies, whether publicly or privately funded, forget that the guests are often merely down on their luck, and whilst there are some who would abuse the facility, they are in the minority. And not in the shelter.

The Centre is up against it though, the council having refused permission for more beds-the building could easily accomodate a few more, on the grounds that there is a risk of “infection…(and ) a lack of ventilation ” and other issues, which shows the fundamental difference between those who get on with the job of helping people and those who are actually paid to do it.

They are also up against it due to a lack of funding, but the battling style that Macari employed during his playing days has not diminished, and he continues to fight for his cause. They have received on a paltry amount from the authorities, who give me the impression that they would rather the whole thing went away.

After all, its kind of showing that they are not doing their job, and accepting their own responsibilities to the citizens they are apparently their to represent.

The centre were delighted to receive the donation, and again, on their behalf, thanks to all involved.

I’ll be keeping in touch with them, doing what I can to help out, and although there is  no way at present for anyone to make direct donations, I’ll let you know as soon as there is.

 

 

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Celtic look to overcome the traumatic experience of the trip to the Nou Camp by vowing to actually take part in the match against Inverness up in the frozen north this weekend.

As ever, the fixtures computer has a long trip planned for the hoops, which for some reason they think might affect the teams performance. They do it every year, and still haven’t realised that the sides record after European games is far from poor.

After letting the support down with their half arsed second half efforts, there is a feeling that the players owe us one, and in reality, they do. but they can do that against Manchester City in a couple of weeks, who won convincingly in their delayed opener last night, scoring four without reply against Borussia Moenchengladbach, whose own support were silent throughout the game.

Nothing to do with how their team performed, its just a nightmare for them to come up with any songs refelcting their love for a team with more letters than than the Resolution 12 guys.

Oh, funny you should mention the Resolution 12 guys ( we didn’t -Ed )

A wee bit of movement we hear, is in the pipeline. I’ll let you know when we do, and don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten about the follow up to the last article, I just thought the game against “rangers ” could do without any more possibilities for the gullibillies to have a moan.

Which reminds me.

Can anyone explain the background to this banner ?

 

It was on display during the recent visit by those delightful chaps in blue to Celtic Park, and MALKAI, the logo clearly visible to antone who doesn’t work in the Scottish media, apparently stands for  ” Make A Living Killing All Irish ”

Surely not, or the press would have been all over it.

After all, with the “rangers ” board complaing about how their lovable but sensitive support were upset at the “bigotry and hatred ” shown towards them by celtic fans in the ground, it would be terribly embarrassing for them if their own little flowers were just as full of hatred and bigotry as those they are accusing.

Actually, you can chuck in racism as well, because if you substituted ” Blacks “, “Jews ” or “Asians ” in there, then you have would have grounds for serious and possibly permanent punishment.

Surely there are questions to be asked ? so how about one of our esteemed journalists asking them ?

Or maybe an MSP ?

Or do we have to go to UEFA again, and get them to have a look at the clusterfuck currently trading as Rangers International Football Club. At least, thats what I think they call themselves.

A few other names spring to kind…

But hey, this is Glasgow, and what are the Irish for if not to allow the natives a sense of superiority ? Dignified superiority of course…

Never mind, the nights are fair drawing in, and we keep hearing that they don;t have the money to keep the lights on for much longer, and soon it will be time to condemn them to eternal darkness again.

Which is usually good for a laugh.

Incidentally, manager Mark Warburton, currently under a wee bit of pressure after his big name signings failed to live up to the “Shype ” ( copyright Desi Mond, Etims ), had this to say.

well, it’s only right.

After all, we have seen the support acting like Rangers fans…they’ve made the switch over, so why can’t the players ?

Enough of them.

Celtic will pick themselves up this weekend, and go back to playing the way they can. Here’s hoping thats what we do in the remaining five games of the tournament.

We won’t play that badly again, and the rocket inserted into some bottoms by captain Scott Brown will have had its effect.

Two wins, home to Man city and borussia, couple with a draw in one of the other games should see Celtic extend their European run after Christmas.

It ain’t over till the fat lady sings, and she hasn;t even arrived at the theatre yet.

 

I’ve kind of neglected the caption compettion over the lat few days, so we’ll start anew again today, and I’d like you to have a look at this… which appeared on twitter , posted by Aberdeen changed, who claim its the “rangers ” PR department blaming everyone else..

But is it ?

By the way, if anyone says its me doing the Diary, you’re barred. for heavens sake, I would never wear a blue shirt.

Good morning Ralph,
Good to see you handing over Devoys winnings to Lou Lou skip to my Lou Macari, great stuff and i hope his charity work makes a huge difference to those who need it most HH!

Looking forward to the night out next so don’t be fucking about getting something organised.
I see you made an effort and wore a shirt when meeting Lou and the charity workers and guests, i expect you to make a similar effort in your attire when you meet your co mentalists next week.
Charlie Saiz has requested a trough and a bale of hay, so factor that in when looking for a location.

Etims ThinkTank.

A thought brought on by your charity donations and our Pink Top.

During the summer of cricket down under, the Sydney Test has become known as the Pink Test, This is to raise money for breast cancer. It was started by cricketer Glenn McGrath who lost his wife to the disease. People attending wear something pink on day one, including commentators like Warnie.

My idea is that celtic hold a Pink Game, where people attend a home game wearing the pink celtic top and money is raised for breast cancer.

This, I believe would raise our profile even more, raise money for a vreat cause and it would get good use of the pink tops.

Your thoughts and who would be the right person at celtic to approach.

Dave (oztim67)

Sky don’t care about the fans. The MSM try and say ‘historic’ and ‘world-famous’ fixture but they promote it as a circus freak show. The more hatred, the more they get to write about.

If they cared about sectarianism and racism then they would write about ‘outrage’ and ‘shame-game’ after every sevco game but clearly, to them, the hun pound is more important than integrity.

Good morning all. Ralph, well done with the homeless shelter.The best cause I can think of. Some on this forum may be homeless in the future or maybe have been in the past.Some of us may have family and friends who are on the street or going to food bank. Met a guy once who had lived homeless in London for ten years and it destroyed his life and his family. He was wrecked.I think about him a lot and try to imagine the horror of it. He was robbed and beaten countless times, in the shadow of government offices where MPs siphon off funds for moat building, nuclear ‘deterrents’ and offshore tax wheezes.

Fitba. I think the Barca game will have good results this season. I was gettin a bit cocky meself. It reminded me of the roller coaster ride that all Celtic supporters know so well.I think that we can still redeem our CL. Man City ripped Monchensadsack to bits.
That Sunday trip to Inversnecky? I know the ground under the Kessock Bridge well. Dolphins swim just outside the parking lot and that north wind rips out your lungs!
If Griffiths is still injured why not the same 4-2-3-1 as used against Sevco?

Weather permitting, we should get a good result. No predictions. The game is on BT3.

Is this what you see when one of the fuckers say ‘Were going for 55’?

4 years ago

I disagree Joe. I think you will find that a lot of people will be planning to go home earlier than usual on this day as it is Hogmanay. A lot of people will have plans nearer home and will make their way there due to the transport being shut down at 10.00pm. It won’t make much difference to the hospital numbers as they are always high but usually well after the game and in outlying areas. The travelling fans are ignored all the time but Celtic won’t have to worry about that! There won’t be carnage and it might be better to manage than the next day, which is completely dead. If the game was on the first it just means a massive police presence for this game alone. Costs are cut for the public purse. I reckon you over estimate the number of bampots there actually is. I don’t see the behaviour of half-wits or the number of half-wits increasing just because the game is on Hogmanay. Most incidents involve people who have never been to a game in years. If some clown in Aryshire is going to get himself into such a state he sticks a glass in someones face there is precious little you can do about it.
Society can’t shut down, or be organised around, this football game. If it has to then the game should be banned. Plain and simple.

Roy Keane often talks complete rubbish and this is another example. Unsurprising that you agree John because it is anti Celtic and derogatory. Getting to the CL proper is no easy task for teams from small leagues even with big histories like us. Keane would be well advised to keep his opinions to himself.
His toxic brand of management has failed in several places and we dodged a bullet when we were considering employing him. Getting to the CL was major for us and worthy of celebration.
Now we can put Barca behind us ( they still only got three points ) and we are three point behind the top two in the group and unlikely to fold as easily again. Lighten up dude!

Ralph,

Nice to see you did a bit of cogitating this morning and were rewarded with an air of calmness. Wonderfully balanced Dairy with everything that makes me proud to be a Celt. LMcC’s centre reflects all that is wrong with governing bodies and all that can be good in human nature. He, or his work rather, deserves better recognition. I know from personal experience it is really hard to get. Most of society would rather the homeless and the destitute would just evaporate so that their consciences stop bothering them. Authorities? I can never remember them having a conscience.

It is inevitable that it is left to ETims and other bloggers to draw attention to the vile, racist bigotry that is displayed over and over and not only at Celtic matches. As we have moved forward in Scotland, so we have remained very much the same – or become even worse, maybe. I know we repeat this time after time but I believe we must never let it be ignored completely.

Anyway, it is nice to see you are looking forward to getting back to winning ways. We are much better than our domestic competition and should win comfortably on Sunday even with the exertions (or none if your analysis is correct) of Tuesday and the fix-ture arrangements of the SPFL, but I still maintain we are well below the average CL requirements. However, I do accept that in the past, we have done the impossible with lots of effort, a great deal of heart and a bellyful of pride. I am just not prepared to be disappointed if it does not come off.

I hav not commented on the Barca game allowing twenty four hours to go past.
This current team are full of bottle merchants, Delulah took the flack over the last two years but certain individuals are not leaders and should go.
Think back t the Scottish Cup Final when Roberts missed, who went ove to support him, the invisible man.
Celtic struggled against the Imps, think back to East Kilbride, the Israeli’s were unlucky not to knock Celtic out, think if Delilah was the manager, Oh I am no Charlie Sais.
What the team needs is a strong leader on the pitch, not someone who half heartedly has a kick a Rakatic.
Yes you can be top against the dross of the SPFL but that performance was atrocious, hopefully Brendan has the bottle to sort out the kissers on, Delilah did not.
We won the league last year, but others were poor.
So fa this year a repeat performance.
We have to play Man City in last nights game Aquero was outstanding, the Germans were lucky not to have seen put past them.

it is a much easier task getting to the CL if you go in as Champions. Look at the teams we have had to play in the past few seasons. We should beat every single one of them with no trouble. If there is no Champions route it is very difficult. We only play against weaker teams as we are seeded. We are considerably richer that Molde, Maribor, Hapoel, probably not Astana. Don’t like Keane at all but he spoke as a supporter and is right. Our ambitions have sunk so low just getting in to the CL is enough. That is not what a big club does.

Roy Keane is maybe speaking from the heart but that doesn’t make him right.
The Celtic players celebrated against Hapoel because they achieved their aim, Champions league qualification.
The last two years under Deila ( in Europe ) were abysmal, not only failing to qualify for the CL but embarrassed in the Europa league.
Within a few months in the job, Brendan Rodgers has us in the Champions league and winning 100% of his domestic fixtures, the stadium is full and the support believe we are a club on the rise.
Celtic were heavily beaten on Tuesday and suddenly all of the good work done by Brendan and the team is questioned? Fuck that!
Brendan and the players deserve nothing but our full backing and support, if you don’t want to do that, fuck off and support some other team!

Hail Hail!

And when you fuck off and support anothet side, when you get there fuck off again!

Roy Keane is a hurting Tic. supporter,so whats the difference between him and Sutton,answer nothing.
Celtic were pish against Barca.our own captain himself agrees,
nothing you or anyone else says alters that fact.
The players get great credit when they play well and will get critisised when they dont,again nothing you say will alter that.
MON and even Big Jock were critisised,Brendan Rodgers will be critisised if he to fucks up.
Ronnie Delia couldnt lace Roy Keanes boots,both as player or Manager.
Nothing you say will alter that.

Had Deila lost to Red Imps got pumped by Hapoel then battered by Barca you would be the first screaming we sack him before any more damage is done.
I personally think Brendan will be a successful boss at Celtic though I am not naive enough to think he isn’t without his flaws.
So far I see a bit of a tinkerman regarding the side who has bought well and started well.
Time as always will be the ultimate judge.
Btw we didn’t do that badly in Europe in Deilas first season when you look at the Inter and Qarabag games.
Last season was a bust.

There was nothing wrong with what he was trying to achieve.
It made perfect sense.
However he had problems trying to achieve those aims.
He did deliver 2 of the 5 in a row most take pride in shouting about.
High Press
Playing at pace
Playing with width
Increased fitness
Sound familiar?

Monti, agree totally. I ain’t fuckin off anywhere. Roy Keane can, however, fuck off with his opinions the same as he fucked off from our team. As a manager…. Keane was a great player, the kind we need. We have played one game in the CL after an absence of 3 years and this is the shite we get! Keane can’t hold a candle to Brendan as a manager, nor to Deila for that matter! Brendan, if you’re reading this, listen to the loyal voices on this site. We’re behind you all the way and yes, proud to be in the Champion’s League because we are champions (unlike Arsenal, Man City etc) and deserve to be in the CL. Well done. 7-0 is not the measure of our club. If you and the players give 100% then our fans will respect that. The future is bright. Roy Keane has all the man management skills of Attila the Hun. Most of us didn’t want him here and are glad to have dodged the bullet.

But they did not give 100% on Tuesday. They agve much less that is what is annoying. Seems we are a little North korean in our attitudes on this site. No room for an alternative view. We all must line up and sing from exactly the same hymn sheet or we are ‘Huns’. You will find as many people are furious with Tuesday are as for complete acceptance of the ‘doormat’ approach. Football is all about opinions…but results don’t lie.

🙂 And so it begins!

Joey Barton’s sevco career could be over after the player was sent home from training on Tuesday until further notice.

I understand Barton was involved in a training ground bust up, which prompted the club to send him home immediately.

The 35 year old’s future will be discussed over the next twenty four hours and leaves manager Mark Warburton with a big decision to make on one of the highest paid players at the club.

The incident comes hot on the heels of a 5-1 thrashing by Celtic in which the NewGers midfielder claimed ahead of the match that Scott Brown was “not in his league”.

Barton’s performance failed to reach pass marks as Celtic dominated the middle of the park. The result prompted Celtic captain Scott Brown to state it was “Men against Boys” and that his tussle with Barton was “easy”.

sevco football club has made no comment on the story.

sevco slap the glove FC.
