Hector, Ralph and Desi get together to discuss the pending Rennes game.
They also discuss the recent AGMs on either side of the river and heartily discuss the Clubs questionable actions and really questionable in-actions when it comes to the Green Brigade and the Resolution 12 guys.
We finish with a tribute to Dave King, he came, he half saw, he got conquered.
But hey, he won a Petrofac Cup you know and the hearts of all deluded Teddy Bears.
A fact that also makes us ask just why do Celtic fans hold Authority figures in contempt whilst Rangers fans love to look up to the High Heid yins regardless of the self harm…is a Masonic thing?

Does anyone listen to podcasts?
when you watch it aint half hot mum who dis lofty remind yees ae
lofty ur you playin silly buggers again
Yes they do ya cheeky cunt!
Not for me.
It has been “more than a club” for over 120 years.
For want of a better expression, it is a shareholder democracy therefore you need to owe the majority of shares, if you want to change things.
Sitting on the sidelines carping will ensure the present ownership model continues ad infinitum.
PS Great podcast guys or it bloody better be when I get round to listening. 😉
Well said Cha. The Galilean people front or is the people front of Galilea? Anyway it is what it is today. Buy more shares get control very simple
Celtic v Rennes
With inelligibility and injuries we’re down to bare minimums for defenders tonight.
Bauer Jullien Ajer Taylor
Christie Ntcham Forrest
Subs: Gordon, Church, Bitton, Rogic, Shved, Johnston, Griffiths
2-0 Celts (Edouard, Christie)
Duh, can’t put the boy Church on the bench as he’s also inelligible.
Could be a good option although I doubt he’ll go for that. Good chance Griff will come on in the second half all the same.
Judean People’s Front!
That not bother you seeing as you give nothing to OUR GREAT CLUB!Tho you use us to spout your Pish and it gives you some social interaction eh
I was at yesterday’s AGM. it was packed, I was in room 3. P.L. said that he had spoken to UEFA. that a.m. and that they had no wish to pursue Res.12. also that it was time barred, only to do with Old Co. Bankier actually used the words ” move on” we need to look after Celtic. Auld-Heid spoke well and made his points, the hall showed their appreciation. P.L. said that he had not seen the 5way agreement. Joe McHugh made the point and P.L. couldn’t comment and that it was pure speculation. Despite what we think, P.L. has plenty of followers, the vast majority at the meeting put up their hands for his reappointment. I voted against both him and Wilsons reappointment and FOR the resolution, but my shares meant nothing. D.Ds son was at the meeting, he looks as if he will be taking a more active interest in the club, but only time will tell. The stock exchanged confirmed that the resolution had not passed.
If you were a shareholder you could have attended the AGM and asked that very question.
A total of 2,508,944 votes in favour of Res.12. which only amounted to 2.81% of the vote. 86,883,003 against. 97.19% of the total.
that breaks ma fookin heart mike
Mine too Charlie, that’s why I left before the poll result was mentioned. Strangely they asked for a show of hands in all rooms, knowing full well that there was no chance of the resolution passing. I have a suspicion of why, testing the water perhaps? Don’t let the bostards get you down.
Someone suggested that the vote in the hall was 75-25% in favour of the resolution.
Obviously this wouldn’t have been an accurate count, as it would be a guesstimate based on what the person could see from their seat and, even then, estimating 1 in 4 were against.
However, if it was a fair reflection, then I would be disappointed in the 25% figure, as I would expect 90%+ of individual shareholders to be in favour.
I’m not sure if the top table or corporate shareholders would have voted but this would be neglibile on an individual handcount basis.
I think the 25% (if accurate) contains a lot of people who simply see the club winning everything, doing well financially and not wanting to rock the boat.
I don’t think this will defintely always be the case (I’d expect that figure to be well under 10%) but obviously its a difficult nut to crack but, as the song says “with hope in your heart” nothing is impossible.
The T.V. pictures of the main hall and our hall looked to me that about 90% voted for the resolution, but that could be that you do not see those with their hands not raised. I would guess that the vast amount of small shareholders voted for and only a tiny amount voted against. The top table did not need to raise their hands as they would surely know that their count of shares would be massively higher, as reflected in the percentages.
I think when I voted it showed my shareholding of just under 2,000 votes.
This is from the initial share offer 25 years ago plus new shares via the DRIP scheme.
If this is an average holding then it means then over 1,000 individual shareholders voted against.
I recall in the early days that there were 10,000 individual shareholders but only about 10% voted so this may be about right.
I doubt that the 86m votes against had such diversity.
Obviously, this doesn’t affect the overall vote but suggests that this sizable number can be work on for the future:
1. Getting more existing shareholders out to vote in future.
2. Getting new shareholders.
The vast amount of small shareholders would naturally vote FOR the resolution. It would be interesting if a count could be made to increase small shareholders shares collectively, all linked to a scheme to raise the percentage of shares to around 25% but that is a massive amount of money. But where there’s a will…
oohooh desi sanctioned internally that sound like a lotta fun if yer dishin it oot ha ha ha yoov got tae laugh or yeed cry
Hi UEFA its Peter at Celtic here.

Pyrotechnics are against UEFA rules and GB have cost the club 500,000 Euros through various behaviours. The Green Brigade do so much good, but they think they above the rules. I have always been supportive of the GB, but sadly, I’m coming to the conclusion that it may be time for them to be disbanded. They will not stop using pyros, so we will continue to be fined or worse, stadium closures.
dry yer eyes ffs
Do you think the same about our board of directors who have cost the club 10 million failed to land a player for 3.5 million and looked the other way as rules which govern our sport were broken and allowed and still allow season ticket holders from our greatest enemy, referee our games then think its okay fir them to be celebrating the sane night in an orange pub, allowed sevvo fans trash the stadium without any ban only reducing the numbers when King did it to us.
Allow the police to get names and addresses of innocent fans who then get their visits at early o clock and taken away from their family just because they are a football fan?
Maybe it’s time our board got disbanded.
Sorry for the spelling mistakes fat fingers on a wee phone 🙂
I would have no problem with the board being disbanded, Jimmybee. I would have had them all out after last summer’s farcical transfer window. It wasn’t meant as a pro-board statement, more dismay at the GB inability to stop using pyrotechnics and the fines and stadium closures that are likely to follow.
For the most part a dominant and polished performance topped up with three brilliant goals. Could have had a couple more although we did have the odd lapse here and there. Great result and brilliant to top the group. Everyone put in a shift but especially pleased to see Mikey Johnston make such an impact on his comeback. He’ll have a big part to play for us this season if he can remain injury free.
No need to take a risk with any of our top players over there with the cup final so soon after.
Play the squad and leave the top bhoys at home resting.
December is a huge month in the quest for domestic glory give the top bhoys as much rest as they can. Brilliant tonight and I got the correct score happy days.COYBIG
Now that we’ve topped the group there’s not much to play for except the pride of keeping an unbeaten record and a few extra bob from the UEFA pot if we take 3 more points. I don’t remember which of our young players are eligible to play in that game in Romania and which ones aren’t. Maybe wee Dembele could get a game.
We have the potential to go pretty far in this tournament CS. Being seeded we’ll hopefully get a favourable draw against a very beatable team in the last 32 avoiding teams of the calibre of Valencia.
I do not think you captured the match in your summary. Celtic took some of their chances, Rennes did not. However, they did create a lot of them in the second half. They had free access down both wings with our wide players not tackling back. At 2-0 if they had scored, it would have been a different match. Bauer was frequently beaten in the second half and Taylor who is a good FB needs to stop getting pushed off the ball. Ntcham was the pick of our mids and Johnston killed the game with his running and goal. Both CBs wobbled at times but ultimately stood firm. Best of the bunch were Foster, McGregor, Ntcham, Johnston, ably supported by Brown, Forrest and, occasionally, Morgan.
Great performance in the group, one that I did not see coming when Lenny was appointed. Kudos to him and his mgmt team!
Morning Rebus, my idea was to express my contentment at both the result and the effort made and not to make a detailed analysis of the match or be overly critical with individual performances bearing in mind the fact that we’d already qualified and that this was not our strongest side. However, you do make some valid points. I’m no fan of Bauer either and his performance last night was a bit of a mixed bag. It was handy to have him available to fill in last night due to the circumstances but he obviously represents a step down in quality when compared to Frimpong or Elhamed. I don’t think his loan period will be extended as we have other young players such as O’Connor who are likely to make the breakthrough before too long. I like how Taylor has been playing in both attack and defence, he’s just a bit lightweight. We did have a few bad patches during the game where we seemed to lose the momentum and allow the French too much space and sure, we were lucky on a couple of occasions not to give away a goal but I do believe a full strenth Celtic would have romped to a very easy win last night.
I was not being critical of your post and I can see why you thought I was. My intro was poor. Tye rest of my post was excellent, of course!
Keep on with your analysis as I look forward to it.
Nae bother Rebus – I always enjoy reading your posts too as you see a lot of things that most others don’t. Cheers.
lofty saiz bet your hurtin
aint celtic as grand as grand can be
Another wonderful Celtic team display tonight, filled with short and long interwoven passes, tight at the back and pacey in attack, threats from the midfield right through to the front, strong in defence. The benefits of a settled side, knowing where all your teammates should be. Three excellent goals. Lenny is proving his doubters (including me) wrong. The team is full of confidence, who knows how far it can go. Well done!
mike we can win this europa league then bring home big ears on the year of the ten you heard it heer first ….if am rang um rang but hope in oor hearts is wit weer awe aboot COYBIG
Great stuff again, ‘ lyin eyes ‘ at the end a thing of beauty!
Fuck the board!
