Celtic Diary Saturday June 5: Amidst The Hysteria

Having been blessed with a sunshine personality on account of being born on a Sunday, readers may have noticed that this particular contribution to the world of Celtic themed comment tends to be a lot more cheerful and optimistic than most.

 

Apart from when it isn’t.

 

So I was somewhat surprised to note that one or two readers felt that they were already too long on this earth after reading yesterdays piece.

 

TheCelticBlog
@CelticBlog2018

Just reading the diary makes me want to put a gun in my mouth. This is going to hurt and it is going to hurt bad. We’re judging this guy on pretty football against modestly endowed sides with fourth rate players. It’s madness, this whole appointment reeks of lunacy.  

 Others seem more concerned that Ange will have the likes of John Kennedy and Gavin Strachan forced on him as assistants, despite there already being talk that he will bring his own men in.

and

You think they are working on preseason preparations until a whole new team come in, then they’ll step aside? That we can only discuss matters once they actually occur? That we can’t deduce where this is going based on how it’s slowly mapping out?  
 Personally , I’d rather they didn’t step aside. I’d rather they were gripped firmly by the lapels of their jackets and hurled unceremoniously onto the car park. but I’ll settle for them stepping aside.
 As it stands, and it’s important we base our opinions on what is happening, and not what might happen, we have a new manager who should be in situ before the season starts. Granted, not long before the season starts, but before the season starts.
 Thats how it is.
 So instead of leaping blindly off the starboard bow, let’s try to think of the advantages of that. It wonlt take long, right enough, but there are a few.
 If, as is reported, Ange is forced into a period of isolation in a hotel room somehwere, he can review videos of last season undisturbed. He can also watch the upcoming Euros in relative peace, where he may find his own Joos Valgaeren.
 More importantly, he won’t be hounded by the Scottish media , whose thought provoking comments in the past have included such wisdom as challenging the late Dr Jo Venglos to a race.
 The less contact he has initially with them the better, although his record suggests he’ll treat them the same way as Billy McNeill treated Gerry MacNee.
 As for us supporters, we need to wait and see.
 Regardless of anything else we have no idea how he will adapt to the Celtic job, all we have is opinion, and for some reason, just as it was when Dr Jo got the job, the hidden arrogance and ignorance that pervades the sometimes parochial world of Scottish football is at the forefront.
  Ange might fail, he might fail spectacularly, but he also might find his own Lubomir Moravcik.
 The fear of the unknown is the most basic of all human fears, but the joy of dscovering something previously hidden can override it.
 But first of all we need to allow for that possibility.
  With the news that Feargal Harkin will not be the new director of football, roy on Twitter has taken up the task of finding a suitable candidate, and it’s hard to argue with his descritption of what the board will be looking for….
Image
 However, if Ange is as strong willed as some reports suggest, maybe he has said he doesn’t want one, and his record suggests he is his own man, and will likely want his own people around him anyway.
 It’s unlikely the board will feel confident enough to risk losing a second managerial candidate, and there is little doubt Ange will be aware of that.
 With the new man in such a strong position, its safe to say that we can’t really lose.
 If he is successful, all of our fears will disappear.
 If he isn’t, and I’d argue if he is going to fail it’ll probably be obvious  by Christmas, then the board surely won’t survive for long after he goes.
 Everyone’s a winner.
 Feel better now ?
 Yesterday, we had this…..

 In keeping with the theme of optimism, unfounded or not, here’s a little song you can sing today……

Spot the next Joos? We had a Belgian international defender, we didn’t pay going rate, he plays for someone else now. Everyone’s a winner if this disaster continues until December? What, with the huns guaranteed Champions League as a result and our budget blown on footballing failures, presumably with years to go on their contracts. Stop justifying this sh*tshow and stand up for the club. It’s voices like yours that are heard, don’t waste it.

If all bloggers dealt with how it is, or “reality” for short, instead of how it insane, what is there to talk about in Plato’s cave?

A bit of philosophy a la Zen master would dispel the fears.
Have you heard the story about the Zen Master and the Little Boy?! …

The boy’s father bought him a horse for his fourteenth birthday and everyone in the village said, “Isn’t that wonderful, the boy got a horse?” and the Zen Master said, “We’ll see.”
A couple of years later the boy fell from his horse, badly breaking his leg and everyone in the village said, “How awful, he won’t be able to walk properly.” The Zen Master said, “We’ll see.”
Then, a war broke out and all the young men had to go and fight, but this young man couldn’t because his leg was still messed up and everyone said, “How wonderful!” The Zen Master said, “We’ll see.”

Though I doubt he’d ever win

Did not realise, yesterdays caption is Ange kicking back in quarantine thinking what have I done? Hopefully the internet is up and running, unlike our preparations for the new season, and Ange can keep in touch with the players via Lawwell’s spies, Strachan and Kennedy. Feeling claustrophobic already? So Broony is gone, no captain, guess it will be Callum Mac, Ntcham? Will he stay or will he go? Barkas? Eddie is off along with Ajer and probably Christie. Griff is overweight, out of contract, or what? Unsold Season Tickets becoming fuel to the fire about to start at Celtic Park. Desmond, the real power behind the equally inept Lawwell, happy to be telling stories about his genius signing of MON, who he revealed at a top London hotspot and allowing PL to take all the flack while he continues to build his new home and business contacts with the british while he hides behind his Irish accent and tries to repaint the tri-colour red, white and blue, how many Scots and Irish were and continue to be flattered and bought off by the english whore? Yes, I am opinionated towards stating they are traitors to all things Celtic, but woe betide who speaks out. No worry, with my dad I am used to it. Wake up Celtic, they know the £40 + millions would rebuild and keep things sweet for a while. But dark and sinister forces are at work here. HH!

I agree with Lenny about the hooliganism, we can’t berate the new club over George Square and think we can do the same albeit in our own space and with smaller numbers. I disagree with his take on the “ ten”, the club encouraged that and I have said here before I still don’t know why his team imploded. They deserve plaudits as does he for all they achieved but ….
Every major organisation has an ‘At Risk Register’ that looks at scenarios that could threaten or destabilise it. What scores were attached to Howe not taking the job, what was plan B? Why did it drag out for so long, where was the Timeline?
Losing a player needs a plan, even one player but as at Liverpool how did they do without Van Dyke!
Is the Australian another Rinnie Delia, I just find know, perhaps Dermot is looking down the line two or three years for the next Rodgers. We have two Chief Executives at the moment and no quality decision making though Peter will move to be Chair of the Board when Bsnkier steps gown.

There was no hooliganism by our fans, as tested to by those that attended the various protests.

Its a deceitful attempt at ‘both sideism’ by MSM, Huns etc.

Our ex(ecrable) manager is simply taking the soup to dump on Celtic fans.

He knew nothing of Celtic before he pitched up 20 years ago and probably knows nothing about Celtic fans, apart from the simpering, sycophantic and (probably) syphilitic media luvvies he hangs about with.

This ‘new breed’ of Celtic fans (ie thinking sentient beings) includes this old codger and the even older ones he watches games with and the only thing we’ve ever agreed on was the appalling performance of our mismanager.

Hopefully, Arbroath or Accrington Stanley will take a punt on him and he can concentrate his efforts to a challenge befitting of his competence.

Yep, there’s no doubt if the season was ongoing after the George Square “disturbances” (or whatever downplaying description they use) then 1 single Celtic fan acting like an arsehole would have been elevated to a ‘crime of the century’ condemnation and a ‘they are as bad as each other’ deceit.

Peter’s Long Kiss Goodbye. A story of treachery, infamy, betrayal, duplicity and deception, with supporting cast, the SFA. Regan’s recent reincarnation poking his head above the parapet, and Maxwell keeping his head below it. The SPFL leader and Chief Executive and author Mr. Magoo, or to give him his real name, Mr. fixer. So, what’s next? could it be UEFA or just retirement enforced with hoodgery-macoodgedery and burn-out, perhaps an advisory position? who knows the secret’s hidden in Pandora’s box. And what off the season ticket sales? for that will be the guide to what happens next.

Neil Francis the deflector ‘ a new Breed of fan’ watched Celtic in the late fifties, early sixties. You could have said that garbage then. The club changed with the arrival of the Big Man .
Supporters pay lots of monies, so are entitled to speak. Celtic from a position of strength have sourced disaster, Lenny is deeply involved, last season treble or not was a joke.
Currently the hangers on seem to be staying on the coaching team, as for the invisible man McKaywhat is he supposed to be doing?

You are not seriously equating the hun riots with fans shouting at Lennon ? He misses the point and is revising the facts to suit his own narrative. Ten meant everything to us, we cut him slack in Europe, let the two cups go and hoped for a turnaround, even with him leading it, to at least challenge the league but it was our fault for ‘feeling entitled’
Can’t believe he has come out with this utter drivel to a hun rag. Shame on you Neil.

Lennon’s comments if true are extremely disappointing to say the least. How the fuck did we get here? We deserve so much better. The peoples republic of Glasgow Celtic is a way of life to us. It is a mindset. It is how you behave and live your life and teach your children what it means to be a Celtic person. The board don’t understand that, we have a plastic socialist in Brian Wilson on the board defending the team across the city… Really? We all need to rebel! We have done it before and we need to do it again. Let’s all take a breath.. don’t renew, don’t buy anything from the Celtic shop, Despite the shit show of last season we turned over 100 million quid. Where did that go? hit the Kunts in the pocket! Let’s take control of the love of our life. Girlfriends, wives, boyfriends whatever your poison is come and go. The only constant in our lives is Celtic and our fellow supporters. All the love. X

I see that Spurs have broken off talks with Conti. The reason – he insisted on real money for transfers so that they could win trophies which was their stated aim. Apparently too much money. I wonder how much Howe insisted on or even Ange? Howe walked because he was unable to get the structure he wanted to get us on top again. Perhaps Ange will simply accept the role much like Delia did because it’s a bigger role than he can ever had hoped for. All that said there is still no manager and the board and new CEO seem to want to limit our aspirations and do more management than leading. Pity that. It’s unlikely we will see a Rodgers like manager again unless it’s a friend of DD.

Digging in the family history, I turned the page and there he stood. Standing in the Peat Bog, a descendent of “The Big-one”, the ancient rulers of County Mayo. Turf spade in hand, cutting the turf, 6ft. tall, till his 5″ black curly hair, wearing a white shirt ffs, light blue eyes. The Da. But it wasn’t him, the timeline said as much, only his familial DNA from the near past, like two peas from the same pod. “They Will Never Take Me Alive” he said, 24 years old. The day before he was cutting ash wood with his uncle. His casket was brought to the chapel in Newport, his mother opened the coffin and wiped his brow, she kept that hankie in her pocket till the day she died.
