Celtic Diary Saturday September 11: The Fans Who Fell To Earth

The real reason for the media not bothering to construct any negative stories about Celtic became clear yesterday.

 

They didn’t have to. The club are perfectly capable of creating one themselves.

 

 

Dominic McKay, after just nine weeks in the role, stepped down from the position of Chief Executive Officer.

 

 

Daily Business online reported it as;

 

 

Dominic McKay has quit as chief executive of Celtic only two months after replacing Peter Lawwell.

Mr McKay moved to Parkhead from Scottish Rugby where he had been chief operating officer.

Director of legal and football affairs Michael Nicholson will step in as interim CEO at Celtic who did not expand on Mr McKay’s departure beyond “personal reasons”.

After a decision which stunned the football world, Mr McKay said: “I’d like to thank the board and everyone at Celtic for their support and wish everyone at Celtic every success for the future.”

Celtic chairman Ian Bankier said: “We thank Dom for his efforts on behalf of the club and everyone wishes Dom and his family very well for the future”.

Mr Bankier said interim chief Nicholson has a “solid grip on how to achieve our immediate and future objectives” having been with the club since 2013, first as company secretary and then head of legal.

 

 

Even that short piece contains enough to generate speculation.

 

 

Chariman Bankier cites personal reasons, which covers the waterfront and attaches no blame anywhere.

 

However, it’s curious that McKay has chosen to walk away altogether rather then take a sabbatical, with Michael Nicholson surely capable of standing in until he returns.

 

Nicholson was described by Bankier as having a

 

solid grip on how to achieve our immediate and future objectives 

 

 

Which makes one wonder if McKay didn’t…..

 

 

It’s an odd choice of phrase…and completely different from, for example

 

 

He will continue to build on the foundations put in place by Mr. McKay  

 

 

 

So, f you think I’m not convinced then you’d be right. This board have shown time after time that they do not have the same ambitions as the support.

 

And they have shown that they care not a jot for how we feel.

 

 

Just a few weeks ago, McKay said, referring to season book sales and the re-opening of the ground

 

 

Together, as One club, we can achieve great things, as we have done over the many years of our proud history and it is fantastic that you can join us in person once again as the season unfolds.

“On behalf of everyone at the Club, thank you once again for your incredible support.”  

 

 

So what changed ?

 

 

If you read the papers this morning, you’ll see that it’s almost as though they’ve been preparing for this. with rumours around concerning McKay’s departure since at least Thursday, then it’s entirely possible hacks have been primed.

 

 

Let’s face it, they’re not exactly known for their investigative qualities.

 

 

Alison McConnell, who has the ear of someone at the club-she keeps it in the fridge- hinted at something else behind the resignation…

 

 

THE shock departure of Dom McKay from his post as Celtic chief executive yesterday afternoon could be the catalyst for further significant boardroom change at the club.

McKay’s exit was announced to the stock exchange yesterday afternoon with personal reasons cited for his decision to leave his post less than three months after formally taking over from Peter Lawwell who had been at the helm for 17 years.

It is understood, however, that the reasons behind the departure came after what was regarded as an inauspicious impression in the opening months of McKay’s time in charge. The feeling within the club was that it would be best for all parties if ties were severed now rather than a continuation with an appointment that was deemed to have been an imperfect fit.  

 

 

Michael Gannon at the Record presumably got the same text message…..

 

 

Celtic have been rocked by the departure of Dominic McKay after the chief executive quit after just 72 days in the role amid a Parkhead power struggle.

The club announced to the stock market the former SRU chief was stepping down for ‘personal reasons’, with club legal eagle Michael Nicholson taking the role on an initial temporary basis.

But Record Sport understands McKay jumped before he was pushed after major players behind the scenes admitted the appointment was not working.

McKay oversaw a major rebuilding mission under boss Ange Postecoglou with 12 players coming in and even more heading in the other direction.

There was friction in the background, however, over the direction the club was going and the structural changes that were on the way. 

 

It’s understood suggestions the decision has been taken because ex-chief Peter Lawwell remains a presence despite standing down in the summer have been dismissed as wide of the mark.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, the Express went with

 

Britain Braces Itself For Worst Daily Express Weather Headlines For 100  Years! - www.boblethaby.co.uk

 

 

Look, it’s bad enough reading the Record and the Herald….so the Express was a no no…however, thats probably the jist of what they’re saying. It usually is.

 

 

 

So, we can safely assume that someone at the club has fell out with someone else.

 

 

 

So, for what it’s worth, here’s a little bit of specualtion based on mainstream media , social and texts from pish stained .drunks.

 

 

Thats all it is, because until someone comes out and clarifies what has happened, thats pretty much all anyone can do.

 

 

 

but to give it some context, let’s head back a few years to a response from Peter Lawwell when he was asked, on here, how he wanted to be remembered by fans for his time at Celtic…. (Celtic diary June 17,2017 )

 

Think about how you want the support to remember you when your tenure is over… 

 

 

We all know how that worked out.  But at the time it rankled Lawwell enough to ask for a meeting, to presumably put his side of the argument over. Thats when he asked for the Res 12 smoking gun, thats when he was given it, and thats when he promptly hid it.

 

 

Fast forward to last season, and Lawwell presided over a collapse not seen since Samson let his wife cut his hair, and he’s now remembered exactly the way he didn’t want to be.

 

 

Incidentally, the new CEO , or acting CEO, wasn;t a fan of the Res 12 movement either, and he couldn’t even be arsed to pop down the stairs for a meeting with the requisitioners, which prompted another Diary, written in a pub on the Trongate which didn;t exactly extol his virtues.

 

One of the requisitioners then received a call asking why he’d told “that fucking looney ” about his no show.

 

I’m paraphrasing his description of me, as it was probably much worse.

 

 

So, Lawwell was concerned about his legacy, and Nicholson just does what he’s told.

 

 

Is Lawwell still pulling the strings, scratching backs and fiddling with knobs behind the scenes ?

 

Well, his buddy Gordon Strachan was hauled in to help McKay…or to keep an eye on him.

 

You know, perhaps even advise him that Celtic don’t buy established players, in the way Ange and Dom had done.

 

Maybe he was there to remind him of the mess left by Martin O’Neill as the Irishman put Celtic firmly back on the European map.

 

 

And as Dermot Desmond trusts both Lawwell and Strachan implictly , any hints that McKay was taking Celtic away from the current policy of buying projects and selling them on, and of course that cosy arrangement with the SFA and Ibrox to ensure a share of the spoils may well have frightened Desmond a little.

 

 

Yet McKay was hand picked, it was claimed, he was the man for the job.

 

 

And, along with Ange Postecoglou, the new adventure was looking good. Not great, but certainly promising, and supporters were prepared to wait and see.

 

 

But the significant policy change in recruitment was just the start of boardroom doubt. Modernising the sports science department meant that players would be given time to recover fully, and that also was a fundamental change in policy.

 

Throw in talk that Postecoglou wanted his own backroom staff but was prepared to wait, and maybe a few more established players from Japan, and there begins a sense that the board were growing alarmed.

 

 

One story to emerge concerns Gordon Strachan, who, not unlike Peter Lawwell, seems to be reluctant to call time on his time with Celtic.

 

 

Strachan was either selected to be the new Director of Football, or nominated to find one.

 

Postecoglou and McKay, who worryingly, given how things have turned out,  seemed to work well together, and felt that Strachan was encroaching on their territory.

 

 

As often happens in business, the CEO went with the back me or sack me routine, and was sacked.

 

 

Where that leaves Ange Postecoglou remains to be seen, perhaps the board are hoping he has committed too fully to Celtic, and it’s Celtic he came to manage, to walk.

 

 

Still at least good old Gordon will be there to step in and balance the books…again.

 

 

 

Another story doing the rounds concerns the SFa and our chums at Ibrox.

 

McKay was apparently more than annoyed at the boards collusion with the SFA over the Ibrox shennagans, and given the amount of illegality and immorality surrounding the two clubs and their novel and refreshing business procedures, demanded the board publically distanced themselves from the whole fiasco.

 

 

McKay has quite a reputation in the business world, and if he decided he didn’t want it tainted by association, that would certainly explain his departure.

 

Throw in the recent racism eminating from Ibrox supporters, and it is fair to say that being tagged as two cheeks of the same business arse isn’t doing Celtic’s image any good at all.

 

Or indeed , that of Scottish football.

 

 

Where the bowling club attitude of the SFA is concerned, those who have been involved in football for a long time, have tended to go with the flow.

 

Outside eyes, like McKays , may well have widened in disbelief at how parochial it really is, and given how McKay changed rugby, perhaps changing even Celtics attitude within Scottish football was a mountain he decided wasn’t worth the climb.

 

 

 

You can’t change something that doesn’t want to change, and the Celtic board is conservative in both mind and politic.

 

 

 

As I said, all of that is mere conjecture.

 

None of us know what has really happened, and those that do don’t seem to want to tell us.

 

 

And thats a shame.

 

For an all to brief period, it looked like Celtic had an ambition that mathced that of their fans. A new CEO, a new manager and more importantly, a new direction.

 

From where I’m standing, it looks like someone has decided that won’t do at all.

 

The shadows of Scottish football , and who knows what foul deeds are hidden by them, have engulfed a shaft of light that may well have reached the stars.

 

 

Fuck me, thats depressing, but its what we’ve come to expect from this shower of shysters in charge of our club.

 

 

I think we know what comes next….. and maybe the board will take the hint

Why should I ?

 

 

I’m running out of piss for them to take.

There are serious issues with DD and the board, parochialism and the continuing saga of the Rankers and the clear support from individuals at Parkhead. Since the arrival of McKay, the club have been clear about their stance on certain issues, but as you say Ralphie the board are more interested in serving the needs of a press that clearly badmouth the club and its supporters at every step. Linking them with the garbage that exudes from the rascists at Brokendome.
Ange is a-man of his word and if he is messed about he will definitely walk, the truth will ultimately come out, but McKay was not a Lawell a sleazy suit with the interests of the PLC and not the support. Nicholson is a placeman for PL.

If this in turn causes the manager to leave, what will/ can we do as a support? They have the year’s season ticket money in the bank, I guess Kennedy can take over again and we sit and watch the huns walk over us for a second year in a row.

We need a clear out top to bottom, there a very grave danger that Ange could walk if he’s not getting backed. He strikes me as a no nonsense guy and he has previous so it’s a very real possibility. If we lost Ange we would need some kind of protest inside the ground, a mass walkout at halftime or something, they have our money for this season but if there is not real change at the top we really need to mobilise and oust these shysters.

Don’t know what to make of this self inflicted blow. We can speculate but until some real facts emerge we could be wide of the mark. What I feel, after last season’s debacle, is we have a manager who knows what we like and what he needs to do. We have recruited sensibly though typically bringing in more than we spent and players, good players, who needed to leave have. Maybe this was in spite of Dom not because of him but we do not want the biscuit tin back snd we go want to win the League snd go straight into the CL Group stages.

Ange will probably walk & who could blame him. The John & Gavin show will return now the money for the season books are in. All appointments will in due course be conducted in the showers. Relegations in the bag.

Never.

They’ve proven to me repeatedly on the blogs down the years that they’re just another shower of gullible fvckin mugs, the old wise head here & there aside (and I don’t just mean Auldheid, fine man though he be.)

But Ralph, Phil, The ‘Celtic’ Blog that is Simply Obsessed with Sevco ..?

They are inhabited by nothing but halfwits who think they’re clever, especially the Donegal based Baillieston writer’s readers, because he himself is either a halfwit or a shill who also thinks he’s clever because he went to Yoo Ni Versity and was indoctrinated with a lot of shite about how the British State agent Eric Blair (aka George Orwell) was a visionary (sic) and a Man Of The People (sic) when the truth is he was simply another Freemasonic stenographer for The Fabian Society taking down the notes that his Lodge Masters dictated to him in their revealing of their overall agenda for the future over us who are living here now.

And they’ve used this weaponisation of the common cold to do it, to enact their vision of Total Control upon us and all these mugs on here who think they’re clever are falling head over tits for it.

The great Irish playwright Seán O’Casey had a long running feud with Blair/Orwell via the London Times with O’Casey continuously calling the fake out for the fraud that he was, every word of which could be read freely online until the Google clampdown three years ago, when such information about their Masonic spies past was repressed and hidden from view lest eagle eyed researchers like myself realise that if they were spinning that kind of high level lying back then just how far have they finessed it in the interim.

Isn’t odd that such a rabid ‘Fenian’ (sic) would prefer to praise the words of a self confessed State agent in the pay of the British State & Crown who lied to the entire world over his fellow countryman (sic) and true working class Irish hero and legend, the mighty Seán O’Casey?

Read what he writes about Orwell in his incredible Autobiographies ll.

Rae£ what he writes about the world, and people, and the terror wrought by the Brits in Ireland in his mighty Inishfallen Fare Thee Well, Rose And Crown, Sunset And Evening Star …

Read those fiery raging relentless words of a true writer and a fierce proud Irish man then compare those feelings and emotions to those wrought by the limp wristed lies of the State agent Blair and see which of the two speaks more to your heart & soul, who is filled with the bare faced truth and who with the naked unashamed lies …

Then write to yer man in Donegal and tell him that going to yer Brit sponsored university is nothing but a guarantee that you’ll be indoctrinated with only what they want you to know within their extremely limited focus and diktat timeframe.

The British Press is as an essential part of the Establishment as Lizzie herself and is not called The Fourth Estate for nothing, it’s because it is an intrinsic, indeed the absolute most essential part of the fabric of their entire network of lies that there is as it is the purveyor of those lies, the lies you all fall for, and I’m sure our Baillieston boy in Donegal is as aware of this as his master is who has ensured and generated all this free publicity for him from away back in the day when he first employed him and gave him the inside nod on the backstage shenanigans at Ibrokes as the original incarnation writhed around in its death throes unbeknownst to its audience.

For all his talk of ‘good journalists in Scotland’, which reads like a joke in itself, he has never named one of them, and this is because as a card carrying member of the wholly corrupted NUJ, a fact which he fails to remind us, he will not name them because there is not one and those who are legit have been silenced from the real truth of what goes on behind the scene of the fitba world since long before they were given that daft wee Press card that yer man is so proud of flashing.

Think fo the term ‘All In It Together’ and you’ll soon get the gist of what I’m elaborately extrapolating here.

I think the fans really need to wake up now. It looks like the old Board habits are back with a vengeance. They’ve got our money so don’t give a fuck. Ange and McKay spending money must have scared them shitless worried about their perks. This season is vital to win as it gives direct entry to the CL group stage and allowing them in to save their finances would be the last straw. It will be time to act soon. An interim appointment from within and with Kennedy and Astra Han still about doing fek all but cause trouble is not good enough. I can see Ange walking then what do we do with a poisoned chalice?

If it weren’t for the fact the Masons have engulfed and eaten the club we love like the dirty bastarts vampire vultures that I told everyone on here what they truly are.

Crowing has never been my style nor ever will be but those who mocked and ridiculed me and my mental health on these pages for all those years fully and utterly deserve it and every last on em9f you know it too.

For I am now finally JUSTIFIED and have been proven FULLY CORRECT in my assertions which all you pisstaking w@nkers mocked and ridiculed not even three full years ago.

I told you then I would be proven right and here I now stand today before you, THE GREEN MACHINE, proven fully right by what has been learned in the interim and which only took you mugs a full SIX YEAR to catch up with …

So I will take a moment now and preen over all of you halfwits who doubted me and mocked my mental health for all those years and tell you ta5 I will be proven right on everything else that I’ve shared with FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT further down the line again but sadly I reckon by that time when you catch up with that too it will be way too late for all of you, and maybe even the rest of us too, even us who are awake and aware and fully cognisant of what exactly is happening amidst the maelstrom around us.

But just remember this, Bhoys …

This is just too sad for words. If Dom McKay was not up to the job then what does that say about the board that headhunted him? Desmond wanted change, was advised to change and was afraid of change, thus he stuck by Lawwell. Lawwell should have been long gone from the club after last season’s disaster, but Desmond kept him around or does Lawwell have Desmond by the short and curlies? I believe Dom McKay was doing a good job so what in God’s name was Strachan senior doing there? As I see it he’s fucked it up again. Get rid of Strachan, repeat another two times. Get rid of Kennedy, soonest. Get the stable clean and give Ange his own backroom staff, bring Dom back and employ a respected head of recruitment. Give them all the support they need to take on the corruption that is the SFA and The Rangers. Have they forgotten that Champions league group stage riches await this seasons champions?

This is a completely dishonest and disingenuous argument, as this is exactly what blogs, comment boards etc are for ie for us to give our opinions etc and yes, the vast majority of us don’t have insider knowledge, I know I don’t.

The question is in whose interests is it to stymie debate, “nothing to see here, lets all just move on”?

I think we know the answer to that, the same ones that were coming out with exactly the same BS last season and how did that work out for us?

BTW McConnell is ex-Celtic View, as are others and are simply putting out board spin but that’s fine. Aye, right.

You would need to be pretty gullible to believe the “sacked after 3 moths for incompetence” line given that no one paid for the complete corporate governance failure of last season and lawwell’s wretched failings going back to at least 2009 transfer window, costing tens of millions in missing Champions League revenues.

I think it’s clear that Dom McKay proposed one or two really good, progressive ideas to take Celtic FC forward and the PLC baulked at this and sacked him immediately stating to Dom that “you really should have done your homework before coming to this PLC, noting how Mr Lawwell did things. We don’t do ANYTHING that our paying supporters agree with and we nearly always get away with it. Now off with you!”

Not too ‘inauspicious’ a start, coming on with ten to go and scoring with his first involvement, one touch to control followed by shot into the far corner, Followed that up 2 / 3 minutes later with another, finding space in the box then bang, goal number 2. Not a bad way to announce your arrival.
Don’t think he’ll be spending much time on the bench.

I have sat in the same seat in the NWU since Fergus built it.Every season come hell or high water I was there.

I wasn’t going to renew this season after Lawwell’s shambolic handling of the football club, but Dom and Ange gave me hope. Now Dom is gone following our best transfer window in ages. Yesterday I was looking forward to travelling up for the game. Today I cannot be bothered. I am utterly deflated by our quisling pro SFA, pro Sevco plc Board. Desmond should sell his shares.

Other than that its all speculation and looking for problems.

The SFA hired themselves 2 new lawyers in the last few weeks.
1 a senior lawyer to handle the retrospective cards etc , and 1 a newly qualified lawyer to take the blame.

I remember now where my belief Celtic were a club of probity

(probity The quality of having strong moral principles; honesty and decency.)

came from – my father.

He told me the tale of Hugh Maxwell a forward signed from Falkirk who turned out not to be up to the standard Celtic thought they were getting.

My dad told me that Hugh, whom he knew as a regular punter, had told him of how well Celtic had treated him and were kind to him when letting him go.

Then there is Robert Kelly refusing to take Celtic to Europe after Hungarian uprising in 56 and consequent Russian invasion.

Or Fergus taking on the SFA over Cadette.

All of that probity has gone, like teardrops in the rain,

What made Celtic different to me anyway but I suspect many others, has gone, and we are in grief at the loss.
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

All we can hope for or struggle for now is a resurrection of probity to bring Celtic back to life.

Ralph know all this already but if it came from you he might be startled into acknowledging his own pathetic frightened bullshit.

Because the fact is Ralph fears me, he has feared me from the first weekend I came on, that’s why he has continuously ignored me up until last week and his mention of me in the leader where he hypocritically tried to defend his scrubbing of all my rational comments with lies and nonsense.

Where was that probity when they were deducting McGrory’s wages for having the temerity to not go to Arsenal?

Where was Kelly when Celtic were touring the USA when they were inflicting their evil on Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths, perhaps millions, and 60 years later the descendants still suffer.

Of course, exhibiting that probity would have meant he missed out on Lizzie’s bauble.

In respect of Celtic’s handling of Res12 mentioned in the blog here is a note of a meeting that took place on 9 Jan 2019, the relevance of which will become clear.

A new SFA Compliance Officer (CO) was appointed in September 2018 so It
was agreed at a meeting with Celtic on 4th January 2019 that the shareholders lawyer
would provide the new CO with a note of assistance highlighting the fact that
a) the previous incumbent had excluded the period prior to end of March 2011, that
b) he had been questioned about this omission in the 25th June 2018 letter from the Resolution 12 lawyer and 
c) emphasising to the new CO this decision was wrong.

This letter to be accompanied by supporting documentation including the minutes of the HMRC meeting of 21st March 2011.

However, at the January meeting, Celtic stated they would not be introducing the minutes of
the HMRC meeting (which had been legally obtained) in their discussions with the SFA on
the grounds that Celtic would not like another club raising matters about their business with
the SFA.

For Celtic replace Michael Nicholson who made the statement and you will get an idea of what we are likely to have to put up with with him as CEO and a Board who want to continue with a cover up.

The AGM will present an opportunity to establish at question time if that is still his view.

Unbelievable eh. We can but speculate but I suspect more stories will slip out in the next few weeks as to how this all came about. If McKay does walk into another job (as he has now removed Celtic from his linkedin bio, clearly indicating this was a blip he doesn’t want on his cv), then it’ll be interesting to see how he does. If well, then it’s clear who the issues are with (hint, not him).
I remember coming back to Scotland after working in London for a few years. Down there, you were treated as an adult at work, rewarded when earning it but upon returning to Scotland, my first job was with a parochial company. I tried to implement changes as the person charged with shaping their new client focus and at one stage was told not to pursue a game changer of a client because the ceo’s wife worked at a rival company and it would cause trouble at home. WTF? I walked 4 weeks later, realising a gentleman’s club ran the place and new ideas were not welcome. My point is, I can absolutely imagine Dom came up against the same problem. Going with a more laid back, international organisation to a job where you do things a certain way because “That’s how we do things round here”.
Well, there is one thing we can collectively do. Question when able to, protest within reason and do the one thing that makes them kak their keks, make a clear message that despite funding them this season, they won’t get it next season unless they already have in place a new CEO (from outside the club), a Director of Football (from outside the club), a new chairman (from outside the club) and if they want to keep someone like Nicholson for legal, fine but no senior positions from internally. Oh and Ange to get his own backroom staff. If those plans are in place for next summer, great. If not, we know what to do

Even the Bhoys on here now know this to be an established fact, having mocked, ridiculed & ignored em all that time for exposing it.

But they know now that there has been a conspiracy involving the Celtic board, Rangers board, the SFA & the Sevco board.

*Undermining our club for the benefit of Sevco.

Remember, Auldheid has fully established the facts of this conspiracy in the board’s refusal to handle the ‘smoking gun’ proving that they allowed the club to be robbed of at least 30 million pounds CL on at least one occasion, in 2011, and that it is most likely that they allowed this to happen on other occasions also, to ensure Rangers’ survival.

It is also likely that the allowed the same thing to happen last season so that Sevco could once again attempt to gain entry to the CL in an attempt to clear their massive debts to Mike Ashley, Dave King & numerous other companies & individuals and although this has not yet been fully proven Lawwell & Lennon’s incredible and rapid destruction of the team from within actions indicate such a strategy.

After all, if they’ve done it before and got away with it who or what is to stop them doing it again on behalf of their sister club in Govan?

So now that the facts of this by now self evident conspiracy are known to every Tic fan on every Celtic blog what is it that makes you, the most useless man in Celtic cyberspace, resist the fact that such a conspiracy is ongoing at the upper levels of the Scottish game?

When Auldheid has been on here nearly everyday for a decade slowly exposing this conspiracy as it has unravelled before him?

Is it that you don’t believe Auldheid?

That you think he is lying, like Peter Lawwell illegally did to the shareholders without sanction at the 2019 AGM in denying having ever seen the 5 Way Agreement?

If the reason for DMc leaving is for personal reasons then I hope everything works out well for him and his family. My impression of him is that he had good intentions for Celtic.

I felt flat when this was announced and I sensed that yesterday in our performance. Although we were dominant we weren’t quite as dynamic as previous home games.

Due to the complete lack of trust supporters have in the board and PL in particular, this automatically leads to think this has his stink all over it. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see IB leave soon and PL in as chairman with MN as CEO. This will be a major step back.

That-sounds like the more feasible explanation for all of it, as DD clearly doesn’t like mavericks within his organisation lest it cost him a single penny more.

So I reckon your speculation on Ange not getting along with Dom is way off the mark as their mutual body language together told the opposite story, that is that they trusted each other and had a clear plan about where Celtic should go to make a genuine challenge as a club throughout Europe.

Expect Ange to walk at the end of the season if not before should a good offer from England come up and you can be sure there will be plenty of vacancies as the season wears on.

Without his wing man he has no one at the club to support him and now he knows what kind of boss he’s working for he’ll have already realised that he’s been hoodwinked and is now just about to be hamstrung.

So Dom’s walking is devastating news for all of us.

You’re right that little can (ST, Euro money in) and will be done.

I don’t think many will sufficiently angered over the departure of a CE as it doesn’t directly affect the fortunes of the team.

At the moment its a sense of frustration that much needed modernisation is being rolled back and a worry that this will have a negative impact on the manager and team further down the line.

If the latter happens the fans anger will be on display during games and that’s something they’ll be keen to avoid.

Ange seems to be too professional and plays his cards close to his chest to work out whether he’s pissed off or not but can’t see this precipitating his departure.

If other things happen that impinge on his area eg Strachan apt over his wishes, disallowed to bring his own people in, not allowed to sign who he wants next window etc then that might be more of a game changer,

I got rid of you once from these pages, Useless, and I’ll quite happily set about doing the same again if you keep yer pish up, I promise ye.

Excoet next time you’ll be so ashamed that you will never come back, just like yer squaddie pal and a few others.

And don’t you forget it.

always appreciate your thoughts Ralph. But seriously please stop this nonsense of how DM changed Scottish Rugby. Just a few examples of what this “change” was would help here. Think you might struggle finding those

Good point.

Tell us, Ralph, with you being the secret rugby afficionado that you are, what DID Dom do to improve the world of the egg man ..?

On Monday Ralph wrote as a clear dig at me ..

‘This page is supposed to be a wee bit of light relief from the usual stuff that does the rounds, occcasionally serious, and occasionally even informative.
 
But it’s not the place for anyone who has a desire to vent their own frustrations. There are people you can phone for that.

Tell me something, Ralph …

How is it that Mike can vent his own frustrations here, that the ever drunken and insulting TicToc can vent his own frustrations, here that Port can vent his own frustrations here and that Monti, Red, Mike, Woof Charlie and just about every other Tim who writes on these pages are allowed to VENT THEIR OWN FRUSTRATIONS HERE but The Green Machine cannot?

Tell me that, Ralph.

What sort of reasoning is it that cleans all my comments but every halfbpished w@nker can come on here and have a go at me without a word, or banning, or sweeping of all their comments for either you or Desi?

What is it exactly you don’t like about ol’ Green Machine?

That he has your number ..?

It’s that, innit?

And sets something else ..

If what you say is true, and this page is only meant to be a ‘bit of light relief’ then why have you (allegedly) played such a pivotal role in Res 12 and continue to allow Auldheid to ‘vent his own frustrations’ at the lies and obduracy at the scumbag Masonic Celtic board in almost every manner possible?

You think Res 12 is ‘just a bit of light relief’?

That Celtic being robbed of hundreds of millions of pounds is just a bit of light relief?

That the Celtic board’s self evident collusion with both Rangers & Sevco is just a wee bit of light relief?

No, you do not.

So stop acting the fvckin hypocrite and tell me what it is that you don’t like about me.

For as R.St.P wrote the other week, why is every other poster allowed to write any shite they like but The Green Machine gets banned for far less?

Maybe it wasn’t meant for you. Don’t think Ralph is ever confrontational. He cleverly makes everyone think about their behaviour. I omit myself of course. I may post some inane stuff maybe not to Charlie saiz in his absence which is a bit piss weak I like Charlie and everyone. We went through the season from hell. Venting was imminent. Bit ad hominem at times but mainly towards lawell griff and Lennon and each other.

Resolution 12 is becoming a damp squib to most. The residual bitterness hasn’t gone away but they won. Time swept it under the carpet. There is no process in place. I personally think social media wasn’t employed enough. Not enough solidarity from generations. Auldheid is aptly named. It’s only auldheids that care enough. I think back to Julian Assange in his exposure of the truth. He’s effectively gagged.

If they’re on your screens they’re in on the act and Assange is no exception.

The genuine truth tellers never make it inti the media far less arty there for years on end, guys like Assange are all controlled opposition.

Ffs, genuine truth tellers can’t even write on a fitba blog without their comments being scrubbed.

As of course I can testify, and over the past decade at that.

Those in the limelight are put there to distract us so don’t fall for it.

It was clearly meant for me as it was my comments he scrubbed, mate.

You’re right about him not being confrontational though, more’s the pity, but then nine of these blog writers are as when challenged they prefer to hide behind their Admin status and simply delete the challenges presented to them with one deft click and then go around pretending to themselves that it never happened and that they’re not actually shitebags for being too scared to engage in the debate.

And I know as I’ve asked all of them to engage in the debate and all they ever do is ignore me and press Delete, all of the above mentioned.

The difference between myself & them is that they have a lot to say when it comes to blaring out shite on their blog whereas I had to fight my way through Hun shit every day of the week, most often verbally but also occasionally physically, though that didn’t last long as no one likes taking a good doing after all their shit talking in front of their pals.

So Ralph is wise in a way to avoid confrontation.

But if he’s gonna keep scrubbing my rational well articulated comments then all he’s gonna do is dig a bigger hole for himself as more of his readers realise what he’s really like rather than the image he portrays in his leaders.

For why do these so called Celtic bloggers keep deleting the truth while at the same time claiming that the truth is all they are after ..?

It’s quite the dilemma they’ve got themselves into and I’m here to challenge their blind one sided considerations of what they think the truth is and what the truth actually is.

Still, very nice of you to defend him, Ian …

Sicne he never rises to the challenge and does it himself …

Can’t agree Ralph ever ‘cleverly makes everyone think about their behaviour’ though …
All he does is ban me and won’t even engage in one word of debate.

Cos he knows I’d beat him 😀

I have read this site from its inception and the previous versions of it too. Im not one for posting. The site is usually worth a read and a laugh. Enjoyed the early diary days when i got my fill of Celtic gossip. Every now and then someone comes along that through either their bitterness or lack of self awareness, poisons the
discussion and chat on this site. Its a shame. Green Machine you really should start your own blog and leave this site. You offer little other than antagonism.

My two cents worth.

Cheers from Oz

‘Mahe

Morning troops
Hope all are well on this fine day of the sun, and the return of the NFL Sundays.
Niners territory here.
“The board are not just unsupportable they are actively working against the best interests of the club in favour of the views of its largest shareholder”
Very well said Graveson, well put indeed.
Next step is making sure everyone accepts something must be done. I think the buses and WhatsApp groups will play a big part rather than the official orgs.
Imagine being asked to report to the Chairman after Peter didn’t report to him.
The nerve on these pensioners.
Dom was right, I woulda walked also.
At least he can still look in the mirror.
A long slow rebuild allowing them to beco.e financially strong looks to have been the plan, a plan Dom and Ange weren’t interested in so it’s upset them and break them up time.
Now we know the next guy is a puppet and it’s back to loans and projects.
Folks, we are past the point of no return.
We all need to start taking steps to fix that club, for no one else will.
Not a penny more is a great start.
We will share the log in to watch the games if needed but not a penny more.
We all need to take a stand here.
For the good of the club itself.
We are losing her,,we must stand up and fight for her.’

Some excellent observations from both Mahe & Gravesen over one the Sentinels’ site there.

Appreciated once again, for all my rightful ire and fury.

You’re alright, man, youz are both alright or I would never be here.

Celtic and it’s founding principles in the care of humanity is all that ever matters to em, that made who I am today, and I fully appreciate your worldly understanding and recognition of this here on these pages.

But you know this already or neither of us would be here.
