To be or not to be?
To speak out or NOT to speak out…..that is the question…..
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?
Well we’ve come through the adventures in Welsh Wales where we had a glimpse of the way Ange wants the team to play and I must say it looks exhilarating and exhausting.
This is what you get from a proper forward looking coach.
However before we all get over excited we witnessed our first game back at Celtic Park, with fans present, against PNE ( Least it was nice to wave hello and a fond farewell to Scott Sinclair – Ed)and we all came crashing back down to earth.
There was practically zero evidence of the style of play we had witnessed in Wales.
The team regressed to the debilitating type of football we witnessed last season : Awful.
Anyone who thought there was going to be an immediate turnaround in fortunes had a rude awakening watching what was on offer against PNE. Alas, poor Yorick.
We’ve all seen the interview where Ange is, let’s say reticent on the incomings and outgoings at the club, his frustration was oozing, leaving us all with a chill. Even if hadn’t been interviewed his body language told us everything.
I have no inside info on what Ange is thinking. No one has as he keeps his cards close to his chest. A wise move on his part. Keep everyone guessing, including players, staff, as to just what he’s thinking. Keep them on their toes.
I’d venture that himself and McKay are tight. It’s the usual subjects on the Board who are slippery. Nothing has changed.
However we all know to our cost the lateness and limited and poor choices the PLC have made in previous years and it appears they are still in the same mindset.
By airing this in public it has a double edged sword:
- Enhance his position by putting public pressure on the Board
- Undermine him at a delicate stage in the usual long winded transfer saga that is Celtic PLC in negotiating possible deals.
Quite a Quandary.
However ours is not to be supplicant to this out of touch compromised PLC Board. It is our duty to speak out.
We have to hold them to account.
It’s them who have got us into this position. Their treachery deserves nothing less than our warranted distrust.
Something is rotten in the State of…..Celtic PLC.
