Celtic Diary Tuesday October 5: The Perception Of Bias

With yet another international break upon us, there’s a temptation to review the season so far, to assess how the new players are doing, how the manager is settling in, and even the difference it’s making having fans back in the ground.

 

No doubt someone else will be doing that, though, and as ever, we try to do something a little different on here. A wee bit of thinking outside the box, which usually involves a degree of paranoia, or , if you want another word for it, awareness.

 

And I think we need to be aware of a number of things that are going on outside the box right now.

 

 

On Sunday, “rangers ” got what some would say was a helping hand from referee Nick walsh when he sent off Ryan Porteous of Hibernian, an enthusiastic lump of a lad who likes to throw in a meaty tackle.

All things considered, the referee could have given a yellow and told him to calm down, but on reflection, it was a nasty lunge, and had it been a Celt on the receiving end, let’s be honest and say we’d have wanted him sent off.

 

Except, of course, that wouldn’t, and hasn’t happened in the history of our club. Especially recent history where referees appear to make decisions based entirely on the financial affairs at a club south of the river…

 

 

It’s not the sending off that raises my eyebrows, it’s this incident later on, where a Hibernian player is dispossessed by a similarly enthusiastic tackle….

 

 

 

 

Not even a foul.

 

 

doubts are therefore cast upon the integrity and impartiality of the referee, Nick Walsh, and it wasn;t long before a photograph of him in an outfit that suggested allegiance to a certain club/company appeared on the interweb…..

Oh wait, wrong one.

It doesn’t look real, and probably isn’t.

 

 

But the perception of bias that has been allowed to develop means some will have already decided it is real, and whether or not it was an honest mistake becomes irrelevant.

 

 

When you remember he sent off Calum MacGregor against “rangers ” you start to wonder, and when you fond out he sent Ryan Porteous off against “rangers ” previously, you might even start to point a finger, but the truth is Hibernian were already well beaten in that game.

 

 

And in fact, Walsh has sent quite a few players off, and there’s no pattern to any of it. There is no evidence to suggest any impropriety, as they say, and certainly none that suggests a bias towards “rangers “.

 

 

But the perception of bias is there, and will remain there.

 

 

In fact, one wonders if he’s being sacrificed to protect others who may have personal opinions that can reasonably be expected to contribute not only to a perception of bias, but an actual bias that is an extension of their own environment and therefore, shall we say, outlook on life.

 

 

Take this man, for instance….

 

What a mess Douglas Ross has made for himself - Euan McColm | The Scotsman

 

 

He’s the regional branch manager for the English Conservative party in Scotland, and has been known to publicly state his feelings about those who are, er, different from him in one way or another….. as the National reported;

 

 

Speaking in 2013, Ross told The Northern Scot of his frustration after a Scottish Government official granted a Traveller community a chance to stay at a settlement they had created.

He told the paper: “I have to say I am disappointed and frustrated that we seem to have to bend over backwards for this ethnic minority.”

Ross added: “These actions are not reciprocated by their actions to the planning department and the council.”

Ross’s committee’s one-kilometre ruling was labelled a form of “apartheid”, an attack the now Scottish Tory leader said was “very inappropriate and deeply insulting”.

 

In the same article, Ross was also accused of saying ……

 

In comments made in 2010 while a councillor for the Lhanbryde and Fochabers ward, Ross suggested it would be “too much” for people who live near a land-fill site to also live near a Traveller community.   

 

 

He has regretted that people remembered him saying them, at least that’s how it appears to me, but that somewhat elitist ideology when combined with the surge in anti Irish racism in Scotland surely brings into question his suitability for a role as a Scottish football official ?

 

If only to avoid that perception of bias….

 

 

Then there’s bobby Madden, of which little more needs to be said.

 

But I’ll say it anyway. The former Rangers former season book holder gave up his ticket when he became a FIFA referee, it’s alleged, but that does beg the question as to whether he had one when he was a mere SFA referee.

 

And as to why a known supporter of a club is allowed to referee their games, or any game that where the result may enhance the position of “rangers ” in any competition.

 

 

 

Then there’s John Beaton, who needs even less of an introduction. Beaton was photographed in a bar with “rangers ” fans shortly after a performance against Celtic that, er, left him wide open to the perception of bias.

 

Incidentally, that bar also provided the fans who filmed themselves racially abusing Kyogo Fuhruhashi on a supporters bus…

 

 

 

All of this points to a somewhat sloping playing field, and of course the argument against it is that Celtic have just won nine consecutive titles, and in that period had an unprecedented run of four consecutive trebles, all of which happened whilst “rangers ” were in the Premier league.

 

 

So it must be bollocks , right ?

 

 

Well, not really.

 

 

In what would lead  to their eventual liquidation,  Rangers were skint. The club had been badly run by David Murray and was living beyond its means, and champions League money was needed to help balance the books. They got more than a helping hand from officials when they needed them, the evidence is well documented elsewhere on this, and other sites.

 

 

The question is, with “rangers ” also admitting to severe financial problems, and a failure to qualify for this seasons UCL, does the guaranteed place in the group stages mean they will receive a similar helping hand this time round ?

 

 

Evidence so far suggests that there is at least a perception of bias, and that must be challenged.

 

 

There is a saying about learning from the mistakes of history in order not to repeat them, but if that history is not recorded correctly, then how can those mistakes be avoided a second time ?

 

 

The mainstream media has changed it’s record on the liquidation of Rangers…somehow they survived it and went on to record a 55th title, and next year will celebrate 150 years of existence, which will be lauded in the media, even though it is simply not true.

 

 

What seems to be more important is a continuance of the Old Firm brand, the major selling point of Scottish football , but this seems to be only in the eyes of those who sell it.

 

No other country markets the unique brand of hatred and poison that exists between two of their clubs, and the need to do so is called into question when you realise that Scottish football receives far less money from television and sponsorship than countries of an equivalent sized market.

 

Indeed, the SPFL have a sponsorship deal with a second hand car company that is under threat because one club/company aren;t happy with it. that in itself is shambolic and an indication that one club/company feels it doesn’t have to abide by the rules set out for the rest of them.

 

As for TV money, that is dependent on four “Old firm ” games, which in itself breaches sporting integrity as there is every possibility that one of the two sides won;t make the top six.

 

Celtic because they are in a transitionary period, and “rangers ” who face the perennial threat of points deduction due to going concern issues. Though, of course, neither will be allowed to happen.

 

It’s a mess, and there is little sign of a desire to change.

 

That needs to come from all of the clubs affected, and not just Celtic.

 

Rumours remain that Dominic McKay had seen the environment Celtic play in, and wanted to change it for the good of the game. He’s now no longer at Celtic, replaced, possibly temporarily, by a “safe pair of hands ” in Michael Nicholson.

 

Another piece of tittle tattlle is that he’ll be replaced by Roger Mitchell, who himself was replaced at the top of Scottish football for having a few daft ideas, which may not have been so daft after all.

 

 

What is concerning is that Scottish football is refusing to move forward. Largely becuase moving forward needs fresh ideas, and an entirely fresh policy on a club/company that has a core element that is unacceptable in the 21st century.

 

The modern football game is about image. The professional club and player needs to be of a certain standard of cleanliness . for want of a better word, in order to attract the best possible return from sponsorship.

 

Whilst the occasional personality who might be a little , er, maverick , will be tolerated as everyone likes a likeable rogue, dishonesty and a lack of integrity will not be accepted in any shape or form.

 

 

We cannot bank on support in the mainstream media, and our own club has done little to sway any of our concerns, let alone the concerns around the direction of the overall game.

 

 

The only thing they listen to, and indeed every club listens to, is the sound of the tills ringing.

 

 

And thats where we must start the fight to reclaim our game, before it’s too late.

Spot on. Sadly too many fans just moan and won’t do anything. Last close season was a perfect example, the chase for a new manager was as chaotic as Celtic could be and that’s saying something. The Board and PL who basically run down the club, kept NL when it became poisonous and gifted the league to the basket case are all still there bar one I think, and that one isn’t the chief architect of the decline PL. we had a chance to change things but instead all paid into this farce. Oh for Celts for Change 2.

No, I just took a wild guess, Cha, as I can no longer be bothered checking the Celtic accounts as no one is interested in what they’re actually telling them.

Same as no one cares what all these doctors I’ve listed here are telling us about the toxic metals and the ‘unidentified black particles’ that are in the jabs.

Onky difference is, the Celtic accounts are not a matter of life & death.

It’s from an Internet search so not infallible but does seem to meet the sniff test.

We do know that the vast majority of doctors etc support the science about the Covid virus and the efficacy of mitigation (SD, cleanliness, lockdowns etc) and prevention (vaccine).

Of course, this only accounts for approx 99% of them, which is similar to those who acknowledged the health impacts of smoking and the effects of climate change.

Co-incidentally those that didn’t tended to work for tobacco and oil companies.

The pharma ceutical industry is the single biggest kil ler on Earth, their legally prescribed and over the counter meds eradicate more people year on year than alcohol, tobacco and ALL illegal d r u g s combined.

Interesting points Ralph. I am not a big fan of any conspiracy theory I think ‘ cock ups’ are much more prevalent. Not difficult to see why Porteous was sent off for his reckless challenge less easy to explain why Lungstren’s two-footed challenge didn’t also merit a red. It is the inconsistency, supporters of clubs, apart from the new one, believe Celtic benefit against them. I wonder how much crowd noise alerts and influences refs? What impact will VAR have, I know folk say friends who is on the other end but it will eliminate some inconsistencies.

The Five Way Agreement IS the conspiracy.

In fact, it’s THE Conspiracy to beat all conspiracies in the world of sport and if you doubt me just ask Auldheid.

Because it’s specifically designed to favour Sevco as the major half of the ‘Old Firm’ brand and it was that document alone that gave us the Quadruple Treble as part of the agreement and now it’s Sevco’s turn to win a few of the next, starting with yet another free run at this year’s Champions League pot of yet anither 30 mil, with the Men In Black fully onside with the plan.

All of Celtic cyberspace is now awake to the reality of this self evident conspiracy so why aren’t you?

I read elsewhere, over the last few days, in the Celtic blogosphere, not verified, that MIB Master Walsh has issued 7 Red Cards during his spell in the SPFL.
6 of them to Sevco’s opponents.
Then again I’ve also read that he has a ‘Celtic family’ background.
Either way he is a fecking snake and a corrupt, crap ref to boot.

This is an issue that has gone on for over a century, look at the Davidson’s, the Wharton’s, the Symes and so on. What angers me is the forelock tugging stance taken by Celtic Football Club. Over the years we have seen players assaulted, not even a foul or a card. Clear bias from the Lanarkshire Mafia, nothing said. The Establishment want the divide as they can then let the masses fight amongst themselves. The ‘we are the peepul diatribe’ is at all levels of Scottish society. Columns are written about this by fans, but they still buy the papers, subscribe to the Billy Boys Club and watch Sportscene a retirement home for explayers of the deid club, don’t get me started on Sky.
UEFA also must be sick of the soothside mob turning everything into racism, when they are the leaders in that field, closed stands. Now we have Mr Bartley tweeting his diarrohea about Prague, but any other incidents specifically Kyogo ignored, also the ‘Famine song ignored.
Currently the media have got in for Ange, but quite clearly are ignoring the farrago at Ibrokes with Gerrard, where he claimed no money was being spent, also other issues that are being ignored by the journos
There is something seriously wrong at the top level of Celtic Football Club if they do not realise the ‘Old Firm’ adage draws them into a quagmire, look at the stance of the Czeck government, also the attitude across Europe towards the zombies.

With Porteous’ red card, that’s at least two big decisions at Ibrox in the last few weeks to give them a hand ( the clear offside header v Motherwell being the other)

The clip above from the Hibs game is in the second minute of the match.
If you look at the top left corner the score is 0-0.
The game is already lost. The Celtic board only put up a fight when Dermot’s cage is rattled. They don’t want to be the top dogs in their own city as it’s bad for business.
The other clubs will do nothing because every single one of their business models rely on the “Old Firm” brand and they are all perfectly happy to ride along on it’s coat tails.

Excellent point made justshatered. Score 0-0 and the cheating has started. Walsh is allegedly from a “Celtic background “ and I can’t understand anyone with his background wishing to help “the Rangers”. Likewise, why would they want to become a Mason but they all need to become one to get on the grade 1 list. Walsh Collum and Kevin Clancy are allegedly three who have sold their souls to the dark side.
Only way forward is to have foreign refs and keep the SFA well away from referees and VAR.

Outside of some celtic and Scottish football fans the world sees the rangers as the same club with 55 titles. The board let it happen without a whimper.

For the reality that our old pal Monti now sees before him has terrified him to his very soul, and rightly so, and he just wants to go back to Them Good Old Days’ that never were to stop him from seeing the brutal truth of this dumbed down reality that we now live in.

Yet it’s a blessing in disguises, even though he hasn’t quite realise it yet, for only the truly good at heart get given the gift to see and I’ve always known since the very start that Monti was always good at heart and had just been led uo the wrong kind of alley by the wrong kind of boy.

I hope Hibs take a copy of that video showing the *rangers’ player’s two footed tackle and then demand that they explain why that was not deemed worthy of any action by the ref.
I wish Ralph you would stop saying “perceived bias”…just spit it out and call it what it is..stinking corruption from the top of the SFA to the bottom of the referee ranks.It’s bad enough that the Scottish media dances around the issue without daring to give it it’s true name….extreme bigotry, accepted and encouraged by those in charge of the sport and those in the media who are supposed to speak and print the truth.

Indeed, Funkyy, it’s one of main driving concerns that even the Celtic media still call it ‘perceived bias’ when we all now see it for the Masonic Hun stitch up that it is.

Thats why I’m here, really, as someone has had to call it out truthfully for these past 7 or 8 years as it’s clear the bloggers are not up to the task and it often intrigues me as to why they are as much hideaway pansies as the mainstream.

Moral Hazard Ralph.

One party takes the risks, other parties pay the cost if the risk fails.

Scottish football will find the words “Died of Moral Hazard” on its grave.

The failure to recognise and deal with it is enabled by those prepared to pay to watch.

It would just take a good sizeable number to say “enough” for two weekends across the supporter spectrum but the sentiment can start with Celtic supporters.

Shareholders in Celtic made it clear in Res11 at the AGM last year a game where rules could be set aside when applying them was inconvenient could not call itself a sport.

Celtic said they would undertake to engage with SFA on dropping charges of non compliance with UEFA FFP by Rangers as was.

They will be asked what progress has been made along with a couple more searching questions of concern.

There’s our problem right there …

The Celtic Cupertino and cyberspace is largely inhabited by indoctrinated idiotic brainwashed fvckin muppets.

No wonder those jabbing them knew they’d get away with it.

Mugs like this are fvckin asking for it, born ‘marks’ ripe for the conning and they’re AI boindly stupid they’’re incapable of ever realising it themselves and instead come onto these blind alley blogs and bleat and moan about how the refs are cheating yet refuse to acknowledge the Hows & Whys the refs get away with year after year, decade after decade, century after century …

Dermot Desomn must have his billionaire mates rolling in the aisles whenever he regales them with tales of the dumb blind stupidity of the Season Ticket Paying Celtic support.

In fact, Desmond himself must be like The Laughing Spaniard so fa lured by Tim’s in their ongoing mockery of Sevco, all the while not realising that the joke’s on them and on us …

It makes me fvckin sick to my stomach to realise how dumb the Celtic support is so all I can do is have a laugh with them and tease them gently,mor vigour would, depending on what mood I’m in.

But at least Auldheid knows, though he’d never admit it for fear of being aligned with me but he knows how I feel alright.

And the ever alert Eugene Quigley knows AKA Paranoid Celt, he knows the depths of the corruption of this stinking rotten Masonic run world we live in and what lengths they’ll go to to wipe us, all of humanity, off the face off this Earth just like they did when they threw all our forebears into all those wars they rigged to kill us in all those millennia before …

But they haven’t killed us yet, though they’ve done everything in their power to do so down the aeons, which only goes to show how few of them there actually are and how many of us keep coming.

But they’ve won this war already, they won it in the 60s through the mass introduction of cheap television and have reinforced that victory with these shitty computers thye use to spy on us and further brainwash us into their bullshit lies & deceptions every waking day.

And when we tell folk the truth of it they go into full on cognitive dissonance mode and either go into a fury or cut us off completely, usually by using the words ‘Paranoid Conspiracy Theory’, exactly like the Huns used to say to us Tims back in the 80s 90s when we told them that Murray was it …

And now we all know that we weren’t ‘paranoid’ enough then and those who study and learn from history like myself know fro sure that we’re certainly not ‘paranoid’ enough now, especially in light of all the evidence and all the paralysis & death, associated with this toxin poison they’re forcing all of humanity to be injected into them.

And we send the doctors names who are calling it out and they ‘DON’T WANT TO KNOW!’

And we show them the proofs from Pfizer’s own pages and they ‘DON’T WANT TO KNOW!’

And we present the unequivocal evidence from the VAERS* site and they ‘DON’T WANT TO KNOW!’

*(Vac cine Adverse Effects Reaction Symptoms)

In fact, these clowns are so dumb that they ‘DON’T WANT TO KNOW!’ anything we tell them which might well potentially save not only their on lives but that of their loved ones’ too …

So how does one react when some idiot you’re trying to help keeps telling you over & over & over that they ‘DON’T WANT TO KNOW!’ ..?

Does one walk away or shive it down their throats until that moment that they DO know ..?

It’s really quite the dilemma for those of us who care …

As Auldheid wrote, a two week all out boycott would soon put a stop to it but the addiction is too strong and the support too weak minded to ever even contemplate such an action and Dermot & the board know this.

That’s their position of strength from which they Lord it over the support fir being the idiots that they are for letting it come to this and allowing the refs to act with total impunity every single week.

The toothless tigers of the Celtic support.

My contribution to the “protest” was to give up my cherished Season Book last year…The one I’d had for 35 years.
The denial of Res.12 was enough for me….Disgusting.
But the bottom line is…
You can write quality pieces like this and we can respond ad nauseum…but NOTHING will change unless our Board OFFICIALLY takes these issues on board and demands explanations.
Of course the chances of that happening are virtually nil.
And so it will be left to the support to address the issues…and sadly the vast majority will sit by and do nothing.
Come back Fergus…your Club needs you….desperately.

Did Fergus not question the sanity of the clubs in the league who voted newco to start in the the lowest tier? Pretty sure that was the case. Fergus certainly seemed to have the integrity that the current shower in the boardroom sadly lack, but don’t kid yourself, McCann’s bottom line is the
bo££om line.

Fergus McCann, Celtic 1994 – 1999. He would have fought for Res.12 tooth and nail against Regan at the SFA. Likewise Doncaster and his clowns would have been chased at the thought of the 5Way Agreement. Bernard Tapie RIP, his autobiography is coming out soon its called “How I Cheated The Cheats”.

To increase the chances of addressing the issues happening the numbers seeking answers must be big.

An excuse for not pursuing Res12 was not enough supporters/shareholders cared. Only a small dedicated group of around 130 persisted after 2019 AGM.

However that was when we were winning which is no longer the case, so there is an opportunity now to make things happen that should not be dismissed by thinking nothing will happen. I do not mean you personally Terence, I appreciate many do from years of frustration but circumstances now favour shareholders and supporters than at any time as a result of them being more informed and asking questions about the SFA that we expect Celtic to ask.

One of the problems the AGM route to accountability has though is that it is open to shareholders only via the medium of Resolutions making a case to The Board and seeking answers.

The CST now have around 1000 members who are shareholders who, after The CST voted to adopt a A Note of Concern resolution with has cast iron reasons to justify those concerns and following legal advice, CST Members have been asked to sign the requisition to have it added to the next Celtic AGM agenda, as a result of which it will go public.

The minimum requisitions required is 100 and from a CST membership of 1000 that should be achievable, but more are needed, much more and although some/many ST Holders do not carry any votes they are in fact the most powerful force for change of Celtic, a force that has to be harnessed without ST holders having to join the CST to do so and a way to let them support the Note of Concern Resolution after it is lodged is being explored.

The details of the Resolution sent to CST members will be made more public soon in order to find those Celtic shareholders who are not CST members to support the Resolution. There is no need to be a CST subscriber to do so, although the work put into The Note of Concern by the new members of the CST might be persuasive, but this is not a recruitment exercise.

It is about bringing this Celtic Board to account for the shoddy manner they treat Celtic shareholders and supporters but also with the intent of providing a platform from which Celtic with a supporters and shareholders united behind it, can not only move Celtic onwards but upwards and arrest the steady decline of a great club since 2012.

If you are a Celtic shareholder but not a CST member and want to consider supporting the Note of Concern Resolution now, then e mail The Celtic Trust at trust@celtictrust.net and ask if they can direct you to where the Resolution document can be read and downloaded for action.

Just to clarify my ” appeal” for Fergus to come back…I had more than my fair share of “run ins” with Fergus McCann…and I have the letters between us to prove it.
I know he made a load of money…and caused unrest…but the point is…
He took on the top guy at the SFA…and got him sacked for cheating our Club.
Tell me someone else connected to our Club who remotely comes near that.
Don’t bother thinking about it…’cos there’s NO ONE.
Spineless…gutless…and in Sevco’s pocket…that’s what’s in charge today.

His taking on the SFA and winning has taken on mythical proportions and the reality was he/we won 1 in an otherwise losing run.

  1. Tommy Burns “poaching” – lost heavily.
  2. Hampden relocation – lost.
  3. Scrap Hampden and use CP and (whisper it) his friends in the South’s place – lost

There are probably others eg refs, governance etc and I can’t remember another single victory for the good guys.

I wish this blog was about the football. Oh how I miss the good old days, when we looked forward and discussed tactics, player performance and sports psychology. Now it seems to be excuse, conspiracy and excuse for why we are failing. Perhaps our unhealthy obsession with the past and the next Champions League spot has made it impossible to concentrate on the next match our or players performing internationally.

I don’t think you can completely divorce off-field and on-field issues but agree that we too often use the former to excuse failures in the latter.

Fans, managers and players can do nothing about referees ‘honest mistakes’ and the board, who can, refuse to, so is constantly going on about it simply the definition of insanity?

Anyway, thoughts on new contract for Taylor and are we on the right track when the fog of injuries and new ideas clear?

How is it crazy when the Celtic board’s secret collusion in the 5 Way Agreement is the MAIN CAUSE of all these problems?

That’slike saying your house caved in but it had nothing to do with the aeroplane falling through the roof.

Ffs, man, we can separate many aspects of what’s going on but every strand always inevitably leads back to the secrecy of the conspiracy in the 5 Way Agreement and prior to that the Celtic board’s likewise secret pact with Rangers that led to Res 12.

To ignore those two key issues that have practically killed the integrity of the Scottish game stone dead is what’s crazy, mate, because both of these issues prove that the Celtic board conspired with Rangers and then Sevco to throw games on their behalf thereby cheating both the shareholders and the entire Celtic support with them.

And in sport there is no greater crime than a rigged game.

Exactly my point. If you are looking for excuses, they always lead back to the same place. We know it happened, we comprehend the consequences, but unless one of us is going to manage to change anything stop going on about it. It’s tedious, tiresome and downright sad. Guess what? The plane hit the house almost 10 years ago. The house has been rebuilt, tradesmen from all over want to work on it, people come every week to look at it, it’s even been featured on TV. Stop constantly blaming every little thing that is wrong with your life right now on a plane crash 10 years ago that didn’t even kill the neighbours.

Fergus gave us something that money cannot buy, he gave us back our pride. For once in a long, long time we had pride in our club. He gave us hope for the future, he gave us sense of unity, a feeling of being united, we felt strong again. He spoke up for the club against our known enemies, never again, or so we thought, would we be treated as second hand supporters, or second rated. When the new stands were being built, we knew a new found sense of coming together, of being amazed at the numbers coming to Celtic Park, we were the top club and the Huns knew it too, they feared for the future and went bust trying to keep up with us. This present board spend their time trying to make the dead club competitive with us, they are beyond contempt. Those that booed Fergus were in the tiny minority. Back Auldheid to the hilt, the small shareholders IMO are the way forward, they are key to making the board accountable.

No need to apologise, we both love our club. But, I wasn’t proud of the way that the club was being run under the Kelly’s or the Whyte’s, of the under investment, the £7 million pound debt, the way the stadium was neglected, or of their fanciful plans for the future. I was very proud of the team, the players, of our wonderful history and what the club stood for, it’s ethos. To this day, it irks me that John Keane hardly gets a mention. Fergus ran golf tours, before he took over with others the running of the club, how could he not make mistakes? Past treasurer of Croy CSC, like John Keane he had a vision and they implemented that vision, for that i will alway’s be grateful. Loving Celtic FC is easy, I want this current lot to be accountable to us, the Celtic support.
