When a cancer returns, it is frequently more aggressive than its original, and we’ve seen how it can do devastating damage this weekend.
A few days ago, when the citizens of Glasgow rose as one to prevent a Home Office arrest and internment, there was a feeling of pride toward the city. A feeling that people had had enough, and there was hope for the future.
It didn’t last long.
Empowered by a lazy or compliant police force, yet again the supporters of “rangers “rampaged through the streets of a major European city, causing fear amongst its occupants, damage to it’s infrastructure, and pressure on the emergency services, all in a time where due to a global health crisis which has caused death amd long term illness to thousands.
As a proper journalist, Ian Archer, once said ;
Of course, since liquidation they haven’t existed, but for some reason many, including our own officials at Celtic, think they have to.
So they gave licence to a tribute act, which has taken up the challenge of fleecing their own support of millions and carrying on the anti Irish and anti catholic “traditions ” of the originals.
The cancer came back, largely due to inadequate surgery when it first appeared.
And it’s spreading, all the way through society.
And society is encouraging it…
Modern Scotland is hurtling back to the seventeenth century at an incredible rate, much to the bemusement of an outside world which might now be considering that our southern partners aren’t all that different after all in their narrow minded island mentality.
Scottish society has allowed this infestation to take hold again.
In a sense, we’re all to blame.
We have allowed the media to pretend they are the same club, we have allowed our club to facilitate their come back when they turned a blind eye-at best-to the five way agreement, when we allowed the CEO to lie to shareholders and supporters about his knowledge of its existence.
We have joined forces with them in lobbying for the introduction of “colt ” teams into the football pyramid.
Remember the statement about being half of nothing ?
A while back, “rangers ” announced a deal with Cadbury’s, the chocolate people, and it didn’t take long for Celtic to quietly follow suit…
(Herald, 4 november 2020 )
Celtic have joined Rangers in announcing a new partnership with chocolate giants Cadbury this week.
To celebrate the launch of the partnership and the collaboration with Celtic FC Foundation, Cadbury will be creating 1,967 limited edition Celtic FC Dairy Milk bars, recognising the club’s greatest achievement – the 1967 European Cup win in Lisbon.
The new partnership will see Cadbury working alongside the Celtic FC Foundation and will have a particular focus on supporting worthwhile causes across the 20/21 season and beyond.
I’ve switched to Galaxy……
Cadbury also, coincidentally of course, brought out an entirely new range….
Which is a remarkable coincidence because they, and other sponsors, investors and the SFA, will be shitting buttons when it dawns on them that there’s a video doing the rounds, not of supporters peeing in the streets, or hitting each other with bottles, or blowing their hands off with fireworks, although there are, but one of the players, their friends and families singing along to the popular ditty “Sweet Caroline “, a Neil Diamond classic, with a few words of their own tagged on….
what a piece! my goodness do’nt hold back with anything but you know what? ITS ALL ACCURATE!!!
My wife’s cancer returned 1 year after she got the “all clear”. Hate to tell you but secondary cancer is incurable. It can be managed but cannot be removed.
Problem in Scotland is that no one is trying to manage the cancer emanating from Ibrox
Sorry to hear that. It puts mere fluff like football into perspective. Hope she’s getting great care. Best wishes.
Yeah ditto to Cortes Ford sham boy
Downvote. Some fucked up people on here
All the very best of luck to you, your wife & family.
God bless all of you!
“Barcelona, Manchester, Glasgow and the Boyne” same old same old. How will Sturgeon get Celtic into her comments today? Wait for it, “ Celtic and Rangers fans will have to realise…”
No trouble in 2012 to 2020, now what was different, let me guess?
Great article Ralph.
Really good piece in today’s Edinburgh Evening News regarding them (am sure the journalist can now expect an abundance of threats.
Easy fix for next time this happens, just two things needed – a maverick priest and a water cannon. Get him to bless the water in the tank and let them all know they’re about to be sprayed with holy water. Be like vampires and garlic.
The club will do nothing
The peepul are bugs; cockroaches infesting our society and they’re everywhere, including a nest of them at BBC Scotland. You can’t turn on BBC Scotland sport radio or Sportscene without seeing and hearing them, invariably the tax cheats variety. The SMSM and the Police are full of them as well,as witness Inspector McWhinnie
Why is this situation allowed to continue? One reason is that Celtic wilfully ignores it and all the continuation lie crap that accompanies it. Unless it is called out publicly every time it appears, the bugs will go about their business in the dark.
Little wonder that these Untermensch think they are invulnerable and untouchable and can do whatever they like whenever they like.
In George, in George Square
Once there was a battle there, in George, in George Square.
Fifteen thousand peeple there, in George, in George Square.
All the numbnuts gathered there, in George, in George Square.
See them rumble, steamin’ Mr Tumbles there, there, there.
In George Square.
Came a man called Billy, in George, in George Square.
With him came the Bristol Bar, in George in George Square.
All those people came from far to have a rumble, jakey Mr Tumbles, there, there, there.
In George Square.
And who dissed my wee burd in the night?
She’s my sister and aunty so let’s have a fight, fight, fight!
All those people chanted there, in George in George Square.
Seventh circle of hell was there
One more round and the go was square, in George, in George Square
There was piss and excrement everywhere, where, where?
In George Square
White Lightning was guzzled that night
Now I’ve sharted my ring and I’m off for a fight, fight, fight.
In George Square.
Perhaps if we all refused to renew our season tickets until the Celtic plc Board clarified its position on The Rangers ie whether or not Rangers survived Liquidation (despite the obvious legal impossibility of that). That way we know what we are paying for and what the plc stands for – truth or lies. Sporting integrity or rigged game. Until now this was irrelevant. So what is it plc 55 or 1 ? (for the avoidance of doubt I know it is 1 -the hideous hatefest on Saturday gave that one away).
In the meantime can we please remove Peter Lawwell to a place as far away from Celtic Park as possible.
Re the BBC. I firmly believe that every time they write Old Firm (sic) it triggers an orgasmic frenzy.
There has to be some explanation for the constant use of this foul term in their commentating.
Just wait, we’ll soon have the same shirt sponsors.
Until Celtic completely disassociate the club from this shower of scum and correct the cheating years, then I’m done. I’ll watch old dvds and think of what could have been.
And I see that The Rangers have just issued a statement. No, wait for it,
This despite all the online video evidence to the absolute contrary.
You’re being the unfair, as they actually said “a small minority”!
Actually there was a small minority on display on Saturday, which was the precious few who were doing anything to stop the madness and mayhem.
That goes for both sides of the Thick Blue Lines.
“This has just cost us £10 million”
No, as many of us who don’t live in gated communities knew, your compliancy and neglect had cost us much, much more.
There’s your legacy Lawwell
Shame on you.
When you have the OO marching through the streets of Glasgow singing ‘Famine Song’s nothing is done. When this mob rampages through the city in March, nothing is done. The establishment in Scotland are complicit in this hatred being spewed out not only by the supporters, but the officials and players. It is a disgrace that nothing has been done. Now the Pope appears to be coming to Glasgow. In November will they allow the cretins to demonstrate.
Also the club wrapped itself in the anti rascism banner when Kamara was allegedly abused, but are happy that singing FTP is acceptable, says it all, so much for BLM. As for the mealy mouthed SNP, and Conservative politicians raising the demo in Pollokshields as an equivalent to the rampage in the city centre.
As you know Ralph, honesty in Scottish football is it’s biggest ever problem. The 5Way Agreements author was the SPL leader, Neil Doncaster, so ALL of Scottish footballs top flight clubs signed up to it. This most disgraceful of Agreements has in essence helped form the continuity lie. Like Judas they sold the honesty of the game to keep the basket of assets involved in the Scottish game for a few silver shillings, some of the clubs were angry at the blatant attempt to position them back into the SPL but they were forced to back-track and they were then sent down into the lower division. This patched up Agreement formed in haste has destroyed Scottish footballs integrity. I see that some former EPL players and journalists have called for reform of the EPL, they, still being angry at the attempt of the Super League introduction. Reform,by introducing an independent regularity body. I only wish that, that could be introduced here in Scotland, indeed I would argue that it should be mandatory, for that is the only way to bring honesty and integrity back into Scottish football.
They all know about it, if it was published they would all be incriminated. Auldheid has tried to get it published, other’s too, the Scottish press are not interested in publishing it, this, Scottish footballs dirty secret. Me? I would like to see the Scottish governments Minister for Sport, chairing an independent regularity body into Scottish football, that would sort them all out.
Mike, I must point out for the sake of Truth and clarity, that the new huns were NOT “sent down into the lower division”, this forms part of the continuity myth. They had to APPLY to be allowed to join the then Scottish 3rd Division. They had NO RIGHT to be admitted (above, e.g. Spartans). They were NOT a football club, merely the distressed assets of one which died in Liquidation. Actually, not technically dead even now, but IN LIQUIDATION. If the debts were paid in full then THAT club could continue. The new huns is a company with no footballing history nor any right to have been admitted, via sleight of hand in full view, to any league, Scottish or otherwise. This all gets so (intentionally) obscured by the scum in the SMSM, but LET US NOT fall for it. Be clear, be accurate and be ready to dismiss there lies at every opportunity. I do. I’ve given accurate detail to pseudo-huns in England and they have NO RESPONSE. Just look at their feet, shake their heads and say “but it’s still rangers”.
We have an OBLIGATION to speak THE TRUTH about it all.
I’m NOT having a ‘go’ at you Mike, merely emphasising the Truth.
You’re a good guy, like most on here, and I’m fully aware of it.
Well yes you are absolutely correct, they had to APPLY to join the then 3rd Division. They Sevco Scotland Ltd. were granted a conditional SFA membership to play Brechin in the SFL Challenge Cup. They did not get Rangers membership until a week later, it begs the question how can one club have two memberships? We all know the answer to that. TWO SEPERATE CLUBS.
The Big Lie, the Genie is out of the bottle, Howe do we convert the Big Lie to The Truth and put the Genie back into the bottle? It’s surely worth fighting for, honesty in Scottish football, no-ones thinking about supporting “The Candy Rock” (St. Roch’s FC 1920) at the Jimmy McGrory Park just yet, or are we? No chance.
Mutants from the Shankhill, mutating to the ferry at Larne, onwards through Ayrshire, pubbing at Govan. The spores on the doors spreading their genes and chromosomes onto George Square, where they prove yet again why they are named Scotland’s shame.
Incidentally, Bournemouth play Brentford in the first leg off the semi play-offs tonight at 6.00pm. Brentford are favourite. If Howe is to be the new Celtic manager his backroom staff will be there. Jonathan Woodgate speaks very, very highly of them.
They won 1-0 and on the commentary they mentioned that their previous 2 Set-Piece Coaches had been poached by Man City.
Not that we need to improve on our near perfect Set-Piece play, both defensively and offensively, as the yanks say. 😉
That would suit Harkin. Purches and Weatherstone, but the analytics department and who overseas it all is, Garvan Stewart. They are well drilled and work very hard said Woodgate. One out of possession, one in possession, one for set play, one for GK. They study everything after every game with ball and without it player by player. It will never catch on 😉
Mike just an add-on to my earlier comment and thank you for your response.
On Sunday the 29th July 2012 it was actually Sevco Scotland Limited who played Brechin. They changed the name on Tuesday 31st July to The Rangers Football Club Limited. How do they explain THAT? Of course no-one at our club would ask the question as they MUST have been in the loop and it suited Lawwell to lie to us supporters yet again. I’ll never forgive the bastard.
Celtic should have strangled the new huns at birth. If the board are right and we need to put up with that shower to be financially viable then we don’t deserve to live either. We’ve got to be better than that or what’s the point?
I’m looking forward to the first press conference by the new CEO when he sings
I’ve got no strings…
Excellent Ralph. Scottish society should thank Celtic Football Club for winning so many recent trophies, meaning we have saved our citizens and police millions of pounds and many injuries by taking away any ‘celebrations’ from the teams (old and new) playing out of Ibrox. Most football clubs celebrate victory and trophies with joy, positivity and good humour. When our team wins something, I don’t think about any other teams nor do I wish to harm anybody. I just want to celebrate my team. Pretty human, eh?
Police Scotland investigating sectarianism at Ibrox. We have to start seeing this as a comedy, otherwise…
Charlie Green I am so cynical I wouldn’t be surprised if a “ Rangers” fan doctored the ” Sweet Caroline” video so that when it was proved a fake those who condemned the violence of the 15000 ‘Rangers fans’ in Glasgow on thev15 May 2021 would have to apologize and step back. A diversionary tactic!
The song was inspired (in part) by a photo of President JFK with his daughter, which makes the Orc use of the song even more cretinous.
Yes. It’s been done before to great effect. Piers Morgan published “fake” photos of British soldiers involved in torture as people were calling for an investigation. Once proved not to be real he resigned/was fired but the upshot was it killed the interest in the topic stone dead.
Look at his career since. He’s had the pick of jobs both here and in America and look at the number of people coming to his defence with his recent trouble.
Celtic could have got rid of their part in the shame that is called the o.d fi.m in March this year but chose to renew the trademark on the 2nd of March along with The r.ng.rs football club just in case anyone else fancied taking it over, aye right. Utterly shameful. I’ve previously spoken to serving and retired polis and masonic SNP personnel and the celebrations we have witnessed aided and abetted by a force which draws most of it’s members from a Hun leaning persuasion are just a warning of what we could expect in an “independent” Scotland with Celtic either being ground into the dirt or having to seek another league to play in. The comments I have heard from these peepul at golf clubs absolutely are genuinely unbelievable.
P.S.I notice that shrinking Violet,Kamala,is right in the middle of the dodgy video. Take the knee? Aye right…
They are going to blame the litterers.
The Ghost Ship SS Celtic, floats onwards with the flotsam through the Barren Sea, (not one trophy) rudderless, it’s engine room silent, its crew has abandoned the ship. With no navigational lights, its at the mercy of the stormy waters. S.O.C. Save Our Club and bring back Damian Duff.
Two marches to celebrate winning their first trophy since the Petrofac cup, (not counting the championship), nine players faced Dundee Utd. untested for Covid. The Covid 5, house party guests.
It’s true then that the rules only apply to every other club except them.
