Celtic Diary Tuesday July 25: Title Stripping And Other Red Herrings

Tomorrow night sees Celtic face Rosenborg in the second of three preliminary matches to reach the lucrative UEFA Champions League group stages.

Already this week we’ve seen the media tear apart the support, try to flog our top striker and praise Rosenborg forward Nicklas Bendtner, who would have been the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Little praise for our own side, which contains a now seasoned bunch of chaps who know not only what they have to do, but how to go out there and do it.

The establishment are truly terrified at the prospect of millions of pounds pouring into the clubs bank account, and are hell bent on doing their bit for their cause.

Title Stripping is on the agenda-or not -depending on who you believe.

It’s the Scottish Mainstream Sports Media, so why would you believe any of them ?

We’ll come back to that, but first of all, there’s a big game tomorrow night.

Later today, Etims man in Norway will tell you everything you need to know about Rosenborg, including how to spell it properly, so keep your eyes open for the only truly comprehensive and accurate low down on our opponents.

Compare what he says with the cheerleading from the SMSM…

Pressure is all on Celtic and Rosenborg will be more than a match for Hoops in Champions League showdown

Norwegian international defender Eggen Hedenstad is certain the Trondheim team can spring a surprise against Brendan Rodgers’ men.

We might actually continue this theme of getting locals to tell us about European opponents, as long as we play an English team.

If you want to know what they think of us, and again, its free from SMSM spin, then read this, from Kroneball

Kroneball

But first, get those tissues ready. And no, its nothing to do with Helen Flanagan.

One of Celtics great servants of recent years slipped away just as he had spent his time here.

Quietly and without fuss.

It was us who were blessed, Emilio.

Thanks for everything, and good luck in the future. Don’t forget to pop in every now and then, as we never really said goodbye.

 

Tomorrow night Scott Brown will become the Scottish player with the most appearances in Europe. It started with Hibernian and continues with his 84th game against european opposition when he leads the side out against the Norwegians tomorrow.

Well done, its a fantastic achievement.

Lets mark it with a win. A convincing win that knocks the spirit out of Rosenborg.

 

So, Moussa Dembele, Marseille…

Lets take a different perspective. From sports witness…

Moussa Dembele’s potential Celtic exit is once again being pushed by Sky Sports. After making an over the top fuss around the player at the end of the winter window, Sky have repeatedly given perhaps more attention than is deserved to Dembele’s Celtic Park situation.

That’s not to talk down the player, Brendan Rodgers has done very well with a youngster who was already well respected when arriving at Celtic, but the interest, and potential immanency of a deal doesn’t seem to match Sky’s coverage.

Take Marseille, the French club have been linked sporadically this summer, and they’re the ones Sky are pushing. However, claims that Marseille are currently holding talks with Dembele don’t fit with reports in France.

The French media are usually all over potential big incoming transfers but it was hard to find anything fresh on Dembele to Marseille on Monday, France Football conducted a poll of fans to ask if the move would be a good idea, and that was about it. 

Tuesday’s edition of L’Equipe explains that Marseille did meet with Dembele’s representatives three weeks ago, explaining the club’s project to them, a transfer ‘presentation’.

That meeting with the Celtic player’s agent wasn’t followed  up, L’Equipe make a big point of saying ‘yet’. Celtic asking a fee of £20m seems just about reasonable for Marseille, but, despite what Sky claim, it may not be considered reasonable by the Scottish Premiership club.

You’d have thought the SMSM would have mentioned that.

I’ve no idea whether or not Dembele is looking to move, or if the club are looking to sell.

Point is, neither do the SMSM.

We’ve mentioned the way they talk up rosenborg, and my mind goes back to an open meeting at Celtic Park when Ronny Deila looked completely bemused and spoke of his bewilderment at the way the media and the authorities were loathe to back their own champions.

Things haven’t changed.

Brendan Rodgers is fully aware of that. By setting up a ring of steel around the ranch, there is little chance of any players being affected by any of the talk in the papers.

Thats why the talk is all of title stripping.

The SPFL board met yesterday, significantly wothout Celtic being represented, after Peter Lawwell decided he didn;t want to be a part of it.

Oddly enough, no one in the media has asked him why, so its been left to fans to specualte on the internet, which has led to some bizarre theories, but no real conclusions.

He’s joined the SFA Gaming board.

Read this, and pay attention to the detail. You might spot why…

Board Protocol

Do you get the feeling there’s a storm coming ?

The SPFL are not going to strip titles, they will say there is nothing in the rules to enable them to do that.

However, an investigation into the use of improperly registered players can be implemented.

And if a club is found guilty, a consequence of that would be the altering of results, and a consequence of that will be a recalculation of league tables and cup competitions where ineligible players were used.

Which would, in turn , lead to a reassessment of who won what…

Do not fall into the trap of asking for title stripping.

Ask for an investigation into the use of improperly registered players.

After all, its not about getting answers where the Scottish football authorities are concerned, they’ve proved to be somewhat averse to that idea.

Its about asking the right questions.

Questions which cannot be open to interpretation, questions which must be simple and direct.

Were improperly registered players used ?

Thats it.

 

Now, in the meantime, we must wait until Wednesday before the SPFL formerly announce how they intend to move forward.

Just in time to affect the mood of the crowd at Celtic Park.

Well, lets see what we can do about that.

Image result for Celtic park crowd

We hear that at least one club, who I’m not going to name, are dead set against any form of retribution whatsoever.

oops.

I forgot to congratulate Les Gray, of Hamilton, who is now on the SPFL board.

Image result for les gray hamilton

I’d like to wish him well, and in particular wish him the very best of luck in trying to shift tickets to Celtic fans for the visit of the Glasgow club next season.

The preliminary jousting is over.

Time now to go to war.

If the SPFL do not open an investigation into improperly registered players, then Celtic should refuse to take any tickets for any matches outwith Celtic Park. 

No exceptions. 

We might be stuck with Scottish football, and its unique way of doing things, but we don’t have to pay for it. 

Those of us who cannot make it to all of these games should immediately cancel Sky.

Again, we don’t have to subsidise other clubs.

Sponsors of the SFA or SPFL ?

Email them. Tell them why you will not be using them any more.

 

Newspapers ? Radio shows ?

They’ve had five years to report on this.

Five years of encouraging the myth that all is well in Scottish football.

Email their London paymasters and ask them why they have ignored the story.

And do not buy their papers, do not listen to or ring uptheir shows and do not , under any circumstances watch Sportscene.

Because its shite.

 

The second war is beginning.

The rebels must win.

The other one say’s i do go to the games but will show solidarity with the G.B. The thing is m8 its the TEAM that needs the support, not the G.B. or the board and your non attendance only helps Rosenborg, go to the game and support the team, its only by a united effort together by boycott that we can effect change.

Jimmy the ban was the right choice the gb will regret missing out and pull their heads in and come back with positive fervour and a bit of humour. It’s like a player getting a red for being reckless and petulant and been given time to reflect and come back with the right frame of mind. Otherwise it’s going to end up with a partisan mentality. Tough job for the board tough decisions by the fb I’m sure the gb have it within them to come back clever and we can all focus on getting past Rosenberg. I think we can put more energy into the political side of things once we reach the group stages

Jimmy mate – this is off the deep end. Whether you decide to go or stay at home the rest of the Celtic support can hardly be considered “scabs”. The shareholders own the club of which I and many others on here I guess am one. there is no land owner or mill owner here. Putting this in 17th century industrial terms is the wrong lens to look through in my opinion. Time for the club and the GB to talk and compromise rather than deepen this schism

I absolutely respect everyone’s opinion, for me it’s simple i am a Celtic supporter and yes a shareholder, i do not support the G.B and i do not support the board, they like me and you and millions more are part of the Celtic family, like families we can sometimes fall out. For the first time since MON we have a management team and a fitba. team to be proud of and i want to see them as often as i can, to savour the times, i definitely want to see them in the C.L. group stages.
I absolutely want to see justice and the recognition that the SFA/SPFL have allowed the beautiful game to be corrupted and i want it returned to full openness and accountability and all guilty parties brought to book. Only by showing a united front by the support and boycotting away games can we achieve the results that we want, hopefully the board will take the lead, but if they do not, then it will be down to supporters of all clubs.

Supporters safety cannot and should not be compromised. ever.

what BR says …

“The [Green Brigade] add the energy and youthfulness which is absolutely amazing.

There are forums, platform for that outside of football. Take that somewhere else.

It is not for inside Celtic Park. It is not what the values are, the ethos is and it is certainly not what I’m about as a manager.

I have huge admiration for the support they give but my honest feelings is that I’m not with it, I am very much aligned with the thinking of the board and the people that run the club, the people that have to pay the fines”

The time for talking is now off the fucking table, the support must take action now, it’s all a fucking sham m8!
We as a support MUST see this through, we must take a lead, stand alone and tell this corrupt cabal we are not going to fucking accept this.

The Board haven’t said we are to move on though have they?
They released a statement (the only Club to do so btw) stating that they feel the EBT decision warrants the case being reopened and looked at again.
The problem here is not the Board the problem here is the lack of patience from certain sections of the support.
I’m no Board apologist but there are protocols and procedures that have to be met if we are to get anywhere with this at all.
These things take time and careful planning not rash impulsive and possibly reckless actions that may ultimately undermine our argument?
There has been collusion and skulduggery involved here and those responsible are still sat at the top tables of the establishment that we are calling for to take action.
Lawwell chose to join a different Board for a reason perhaps we should wait and see why that was and is before going off at the deep end?
These next few months will determine how serious the Clubs are in Scotland.
Particularly our own.
They’re no daft Monti the Celtic Board will be acutely aware that the overall feeling within our own Support and they will also know for a fact that doing nothing will result in serious issues at Celtic.
We could have done without all this banner shite this week and last and kept the spotlight fixed firmly on the SFA.
But no the numpty brigade had other ideas.

if we do nothing and accept that rangers old or new can do as they please and never be punished well whats the point in Scottish football ?
boycotting is a last resort as no fan wants to do that but sometimes you must…..think back to the 90s and our old board…we boycotted back then and it worked and IF we have to we will boycott again to win

I think the chairman opposed Rangers getting parachuted in and that’s why it didn’t happen. Yes fan groups opposed it too. In the 90s the Celtic Board were and existential threat to Celtic Football Club. There was no choice act or no club. Fergus acted with concerned fans, including me, to save the club. I would say that this issue is very different and involves all the clubs rather than simply Celtic. We are in the midst of financial and footballing success. I think the Club are playing this quite well by avoiding rushing in shouting and bawling about it and rather working quietly to address the illegal EBT ruling and its consequences.

Whatever statement is made on Wednesday by the Corrupt Hampden board, it is not the end, it is just the beginning,, Justice will be done. Looking at all the facts I cannot see any Legal Counsel worth their salt actually believe that the SFA/SPFl can win a judicial review or a totally independent examination on the facts based on the rules of the Association, especially as those same rules have been exercised and applied to other Clubs recently.

Their Legal Advice connotations are I believe a total bluff, so call their bluff before it is too late.

If memory serves me I believe Charles Greene defeated them in a court of law on the premise they were not following their own rules, it can be done again.

By my reckoning that was less than 3 weeks ago.
This is not going to be resolved overnight btw there are several dodgy cunts still in place at the SFA who will do their very best to avoid this.
Patience is what is required but also putting pressure on those responsible for this fuck up will help.

Ralph’s point is spot on. Dealing with these slippery bastards it’s more about the question you ask.

rangers were found guilty of avoiding Orpington’s tax and used this money to improve their team. Whilst (almost) everyone would agree that this allowed them to win trophies, it is still a judgement, it’s not factual.

So I would imagine that their legal council will tell them that while it has been PROOVED that they cheated the taxman and gave this money to players as remuneration , it may not be possible to PROVE that this is why they won the trophies.

However, the reason ( sic) they didn’t get caught was that they didn’t register these remuneration payments with the football association which FACTUALLY breaks the football rules and should be punished! End of.

STRIP THE TITLES !

A agree with that – the question you ask determine the outcome you get. Focus on the player registrations and the rest follows. Nice one Ralph

The Kroneball article was written by an American Celtic supporter. I would know, because I am him. 🙂

Christian asked me to help with compiling stats for the Norwegian Eliteserien this season, so we were chuffed when Celtic drew Rosenborg and all that data could be put to use!

Good stuff Matt. A detailed analysis of opponents? It will never catch on over here. That kind of thing is far too sensible for the Scottish sporting media to ever contemplate. They are turning into the Sunday Sport (remember that entertaining comic?) and soon will be regaling us with exclusives that Leigh Griffiths lives on the moon with Hitler, or Scott Brown id the head of ISIS and is claiming unemployment and housing benefits on the side.

Doesn’t seem that crazy compared to some of the shite they have printed of late does it?

Yes l remember thinking that as Abu Hamza stood in an English Street calling for Jihad and chopping folk up.
Then there was the freedom of speech used by old rivers of blood Powel and not forgetting the fuck trumpet that is Katie Gobshite.
When your freedom of speech is causing harm to the very vehicle you are using to express it then I think several lines have been crossed.
I say this with an objective and open mind.
Not all freedom of speech is nice or particularly easy to digest.

I’m confused as to where we’re at in terms of Deidco, as we were told nothing could be done until the SC ruled, to be followed by the very successful Strip The Titles.

Now Ralph’s suggesting they’re red herrings and the improperly registered players is the issue.

My confusion is that these were known about and ruled illegal 5 years ago by LNS, so why is it the hot topic today?

Terrible situation, thoughts are with all involved. 21st medical science cannot reverse the childs progressive muscle weakness and brain damage but you think the Vatican and prayers can help?

And on the note of vatican why do they want to prolong this poor childs life? Surely if they believed in the power of jesus they would follow this dictate from their bible:

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

There is no god. And if there was its an evil horrible bastard.

Bondibrian,
What a terrible thing to say, have you considered the fact that prayer may be the only thing wee Charlie’s parents have left?
You are a sad little, bitter man with nothing positive to say, your only contribution on here is to come on here, look for my posts then criticise them?
You can’t even let it go when someone posts a serious, heartfelt message of regard to fellow parents.

Maybe you could just say a few kind words in support of his family & the wee boy himself?

Remember JESUS LOVES YOU…..ACCEPT HIM!

“Terrible situation, thoughts are with all involved” I genuinely believe those sentiment. Seems you pray, I think.

If there is a god then the pain & suffering that childs family is goin through would indicate that god is one vengeful bastard.

You should go read the section in the bible where Jesus entered the Temple and starting going tonto with the the men maki g money in it.
He didn’t do rank hypocrisy Jesus it actually infuriated him.

Brian these folk are desperate at this time and although l agree it is bad prolonging this child’s pain you can see how faith and hope is all they have left to cling onto.

If it was my child l would have gone with the doctors advice weeks ago.

I think the argument is that he is brain dead with no quality of life and no expectation of any improvement so any treatment will just increase suffering.

If what the hospital says is true then I don’t think much of the American “wonder” doctor. According to them he’s been offered the opportunity to assess him since January but only did it last week and has a financial interest in the treatment. He’s also now gone home but not sure why this is.

Robert welcome m8, you attribute a quote to the GB in your post which they never said.
The GB are an ultra group, they have their own way in supporting our club,but have every right to do so,just like each of us have.
Celtic gave them a platform to bring what they do.
Now again some of the charges aimed against them, are trumped up in my opinion.
The excessive policing in their area of the ground is a disgrace.
They have tried to have a dialogue with the club over this,but our club are in collusion with the police,and as far as I can see a hidden agenda is at play.
Why else would the Celtic SLO be absent from talks on the policing and stewarding of this area.
The Tifo,a so called para military figure, and the pyro from the Hearts match.
The pyro is something I don’t agree with,but on this occasion it was magical.
It was the ultra way to light up the ground for the Lions, you wouldn’t expect them to have just held up a phone. Now I’m sure those guys took every precaution they could,they were the ones underneath the so called flammable material,I don’t think they would have been that stupid. Wrong in the context of ground safety rules sure,but for the occasion it was, I thought was brilliant.
I also believe they had good discussions with the club which were progressing over that issue.
Now the Tifo, Brendan’s undefeated army, Manager at work, and wee carton guy, of the logo of the GB. Does all of this warrant the action taken by the board.
I don’t believe it should have been,but others do,which is fair enough.
The club said they were going to issue a statement over the Linfield match in Belfast,once the games were played. A week has passed no statement, that is why I wouldn’t hold my breath on any statement coming from our board on any issue,other than attacking our own supporters.
Linfield fucked us over,sevco fucked us over at ibrokes ,the only ones Celtic spoke out against the GB.

Yes jimmy but Broonie will be used as a mid/sweeper to bolster the back 3, i doubt if he will use the young Ajer in such an important game, that is why i went for Ntcham with Armstrong, but mibbee he will use McGregor in there somewhere. Just my hunch!
