Celtic Diary Saturday July 17: Celtic Park ? Today ?

All eyes will be on Celtic Park today as Celtic host Preston North End, another of those English clubs with a quaint name that harkens back to the glorious days of Empire when people ate their young and lived in coal mines.

 

Some fans will be allowed in, and some of them will even be allowed to clap and cheer.

 

One person who most of us would have wanted to clap and cheer is Scott Sinclair, who now plies his trade in the north west England town, one of the few former Celts who still speaks affectionately of the club in the media.

 

Yesterday, he told the Lancashire Post;

 

 “Just off the top of my head there are so many game and goals which are memorable.

“It would be too difficult to pick one moment and say that was the best. 

“I’m talking about the European nights through to the Old Firm games, there are so many good memories of what we achieved as a team.” 

“I always knew how big the club was and I knew Brendan very well,” 

“To be honest I didn’t need much persuading to go up there and it was to prove a great few years. 

“On Saturday it will be good to go back and see a few of the old faces.”  

 

Even though he left relatively recently, he might be surprised at how few those faces are…

 

 

Sinclair would have stayed , but as Celtic policy for players of a certain age is to offer only one year deals, like Mikael Lustig found out, he opted for security and who can blame him ?

 

Certain players, especially the two mentioned, deserve a wee bit more as they approach their autumn years, and whilst they may not contribute as much as they previously did, the continuity is vital.

 

And the effect on morale can outweigh any deficiencies on the park.

 

Although there is a pretty good argument that the demise that culminated in last years debacle may well have started when Lustig and Sinclair were pushed out of the door.

 

 

Thinking things through isn’t a popular pastime these days….

Especially, it seems at Celtic Park.

Whilst the rest of the world uses available technology to make life easier, Celtic seem to be a little behind in that respect. Surely it would be easier to allow access to games via a mobile ticket ?

 

Perhaps they are worried about fans screenshotting a brief, and attempting to gain access illegally ?

 

After all, no one could fake a paper ticket.

 

Facepalm Crowd GIF - Facepalm Crowd - Discover & Share GIFs

 

 

Travelling fans will be aware that this is quite a common occurence these days, my favourite was the fellow in blackburn who was touting fakes for the UEFA Cup tie at Ewood Park….he spelt Celtic with an S, and had the kick off time as “tonight “.

 

 

The more i think about it, the more I worry that there are a lot of people in positions at the club who really, well, shouldn’t be.

 

 

That doesn’t apply to John Paul Taylor, who has clearly seen where problems might arise and asked fans attending today to adhere to the following..

 

Image

 

 

As long as the defence doesn;t socially distance like they did last year, we should be okay.

 

JPT is making the point that the media will be watching, so for fucks sake no more coughing out the boys of the Old Brigade. It’s dangerous these days.

 

 

By comparison, who is the the guy who thinks this is okay, the line up for Vissel Kobes match in the J league…which is where we’re reduced to signing players from as we can’t afford those in leagues A to I …

 

 

Image

 

 

Hasn’t he signed for Celtic ? Surely this isn’t a risk worth taking, even with big Rab Douglas in the line up to look after him ?

 

 

 

Elsewhere, and one witty and articulate fellow tweeted something yesterday that whilst totally fake, and done puely in a humorous and piss taking way, says a lot about the reputation of the man who was the brunt of the joke, and indeed, the media experts in general…..

 

Richard McGinley
@Richiestoke

Breaking….

wonders why Celtic have wasted millions on unknown Japanese player when they could have signed a proven talent like Ollie MacBurnie

 

@shinjukushug is the twitter handle of hugh Keevins, a nice enough old fellow who would have appreciated the joke…well, he hasn’t complained yet, but curiously, a lot of the replies accepted it as fact.

 

 

Thats when a serious journalist might want to look at his reputation a little more closely.

 

Happily, though, Keevins isn’t a serious journalist.

 

 

Although there is still some stuff out there worth a read, such as this, and whilst its part of a subscription site, it may yet be that finally there is one worth subscribing to if this is indicative of their contribution to fan media….

JUST A NOTE TO SAY

GROW THE FUCK UP.

Any more Flat Earth, Vaccine, Conspiracy Theory Bullshit – from any side of the argument will see a simple block put on folk as I dont intend to spend time trying to find Celtic based comments in amongst the absolute shite that gets spouted here. If you dont like it, go elsewhere but stop acting like daft weans and just concentrate on arguing about Celtic please.

I get the idea of the holier than thou, must be impeccably perfect on all respects ideal – and that said most players are nowhere near that standard nor are most people including ourselves I would guess. I
think it’s unrealistic to expect perfection in life as a standard. Wee Jinky and others were wonderfully imperfect ( many misadventures ) and delivered on the park too. Maybe we need to be a bit more circumspect on this

Of course its an ideal and perfection will probably never be achieved.

McGregor’s drink driving, Boli’s Covidocy and other players indiscretions deserve sanction but also second chances.

Griffiths has been given multiple chances and not only does he not take them, he’s totally unremorseful about his behaviour.

Its probably difficult to summarise it all but off the top of my head:

  1. 5 years ago Rodgers tells him to up his game re fitness and training but he ignores him. Unprofessional, disruptive to other players and useless to the team.
  2. Racism towards a Hearts player whilst supporting Hibs. Another police investigation resulting in a caution.
  3. Actually, the caution may have been issued for another incident.
  4. lennon tells him to get fit to play and he retorts to play him and he’ll get fit. Compare with ‘1’ and the bad attitude has changed not one iota in 5 years.
  5. Subject to a week long police investigation for inappropriate messaging to the underage girl.

There’s probably far more than that but no other player deserves to be bracketed with him, as he clearly doesn’t have any intention of modifying his behaviour, both as a professional and a player, to the permanent embarrassment and occasional disgrace of our club.

I can’t think of a single other employer who would allow such behaviour in an employee who’s been unproductive for 5 years.

Similarly, any business that would tolerate such behaviour would be losing customers and suppliers.

Are you a sex offender or something? Because literally that can be the only person that doesn’t have issue with a 31 year old man messaging 15 year old girls.

You cvnt

‘Most of the fans’, Bg ..?

Is that most of the 48,000 who gave the billionaire board more leech money or the other fans who actually care about what’s really going on within the walls of our club?

Because THAT is far more important than some idiot man child with too much between his legs who had the incredible good fortune in life to know how to kick a baw about.

Duncan McFadden of Lancashire England has no issue with 31 year old Celtic players messaging 15 year old girls online

This is because said player is ‘not guilty of serious misconduct’

Dear o dear.

If I was going with the wrong kinda bird or hanging out with the wrong kinda people I’d expect my mates to tell me, just as I’d do with them.

And that’s all I’m doing here …

Pointing out the people we shouldn’t trust.

But that’s it.

That’s all there ever has been to it.

The thing is, we can’t separate fitba from the politics or the power strug-gle as fitba has ALWAYS BEEN part of the same strug-gle, as the foundation of Celtic and its original moral values proves.

For our club was created to stand against the politics of the people (peepil) who sought then and now to strangle our strug-gle at birth.

So to expect us to talk about Celtic in isolation from all of that is not only unrealistic but against everything Brother Walfrid stood for, cos NOTHING exists in isolation.

And it really is as simple as that.

It’s like wanting to talk about horse racing without mentioning the riders or snooker without mentioning the background of the players.

It’s impossible.

And we all know it.

And everything I’ve ever mentioned here is directly linked to this strug-gle of ours.

And by ‘ours’ I mean that of every last one of us living under this constant subjugation.

Integrity.

It’s only ever about integrity.

Cos we all know the Huns have no integrity, preferring Victory over Integrity, no matter how much cheating they know it requires.

So, if not us, who ..?

Who will stand against them?

Quite incredible how Celtic as as club imploded in the biggest season in a generation, constantly unprepared for CL qualifiers, constantly failing to sign targets in an professional manner, never learning lessons of previous failings, where does it all end?
It ends with no CL qualification & playing second fiddle to a hideous entity across the city.

From our position of 9 titles in a row, four consecutive trebles, surely all you need to do from that foundation of strength & stability, is to keep the turnover of players at a high quality level?
I mean how can you get this wrong?

I have never been more disappointed, disconnected & generally feeling down about Celtic as i do today.
