Celtic Diary Friday December 3: Breaking Hearts Since 1888

I’m fairly sure that over on LDTEE store you can bet a t short to that effect.

 

 

They love a moan down at Tynecastle, and last night there was a fair bit of moaning as Celtic’s new loan signing Bobby Madden helped the hoops to a 1-0 victory courtesy of a goal from Kyogo Fuhruhashi, who was far too quick in his run to be flagged offside.

 

 

There is an argument he was offside, but them’s the breaks, and they even up eventually, When you factor in last night’s break, things will be even long after you and I have departed this life….

 

 

Madden will remain on loan until the new year, when he returns to his parent club.

 

 

The move was frantically agreed yesterday when the cabal that runs Scottish football noticed that an intelligent and articulate website pointed out that they were all cheats, and if Celtic don’t tell them to fuck off, we’ll encourage supporters to tell Celtic to fuck off.

 

 

Spare a thought though, for linesman Brendan O’Malley of Coatbridge, who failed to spot the infringement, who has now been transferred to the East Highland Sunday Morning Seven a Side League.

 

Of course, the leniancy that allowed the Kyogo goal had nothing to do with stopping Hearts from gaining on the Ibrox side at the top of the table.

 

The SARD (Stop Another Rangers Dying ) campaign isn;t anti Celtic…it’s pro Rangers.

 

 

Mind you, you’d have difficulty convincing Hearts fans of that little detail this morning.

 

 

Probably because in the morning their main concern is finding their dealer and a shop open to rob.

 

 

Back at the ranch, though, there are a few injury problems after the game. Madden hasn’t quite settled into his new role yet and he was still a bit reluctant to stop the procession of assaults on his new team mates, but hopefully the gaffer will have a word with him.

 

Or a handshake.

 

 

With Celtic losing their rythm (alright, you try to spell it ) after numerous substitutions, there is concern that the heavy December schedule will take it’s toll.

 

 

However, the fire within the Celts last night, which made up a wee bit for one or two misplaced passes was far more significant.

 

The players had decided they weren;t going to lose that match, and thats how it turned out.

 

 

That was good to see.

 

 

Elsewhere, and we hear the SPFL, or whatever they#re called these days, will be moving to ensure there isn’t a clash of colour at the League Cup final by disqualifying Celtic and asking new club “rangers ” to take their place.

 

With the Queen not very well, there is a real fear that if Celtic were to be facing Hibernian at Hampden the sight of shamrocks and Green could tip her over the edge.

 

Mind you, it was like that when she got the job and put up a trophy for her subjects to celebrate.

 

 

We know a song about that, don’t we children ?

 

 

The Comedy Vault – Hale And Pace. – ADAM'S NOSTALGIC MEMORIES

 

 

 

By the way, this time we’re not going to let them get away with it.

 

We’re onto them, and the result last night as far as I’m concerned is evidence that they know it.

 

 

Then again, I’m doo lally.

 

 

Origin of the Term 'Tin Foil Hat'

 

 

It has been said that last time we weren’t doo lally enough, so this time I’m going to make sure at least one of us believes in reptiles…..

When I got back to the car last night I was surprised to hear Michael Stewart say “This match was decided by an offside goal.” however when Celtic lost a Tynecastle on the opening day of the season when a good goal was disallowed he “Lets be clear, the offside goal is not the reason Celtic lost this game”.
It is that media slant which I find hard to understand.

It’s easy to understand….the media are *rangers ass licking sycophants. In the Daily Rectum today they’re trying to laugh off the overwhelming evidence of the help *rangers and the old club have always been guaranteed from the officials, by using the old trick of highlighting a Celtic “incident” i.e. Kyogo’s goal last night.
Obviously human error exists and we all accept that, but the sheer number of “human errors” that *rangers benefit from (penalties awarded, opposition players sent off, referee AND linesmen “unsighted” when *rangers players kick, punch, stamp on or grab other players by the neck) makes today’s propaganda spin by the journalists totally laughable.

Just in case anybody’s forgotten, with the offside rule not only does the player have to be beyond the last man, but also behind the ball when it’s played. That’s why the perfectly positioned linesman Brendan Francis Benedict O’Malley, formerly of Coatbridge, now resident of the Seaview Hotel, John O’Groats, didn’t flag for offside!

Yeah, the linesman made the same mistake. It was just as a call was coming through on his earphones from the Vatican causing him to literally take his eye off the ball.

I was trying to, lightheartedly, respond to CJB’s original post
When he said, mistakenly, behind the ball instead of ahead of the ball. A situation he has corrected above.
The whole tone of the subject was the intentionality, erroneous presentation by the Hun Medjia that Refereeing Officials were assisting Celtic on the park. I gave the linesman / 3rd Official some bogus Catholic characteristics to give credence to the lie.
Obviously it didn’t work.

Hertz were a clogging team that had two shots on target, but if you follow our Glorious media, and the Billy Boys Club they were cheated by the tarriers. Liked how Postecoglou dealt with the ravenous journos, Johnston does not appear to be good enough, but without Vickers last night the defence played well. Ralston appearsto get better with every game, McKays tackle in the first few minutes was really nasty and lead to Ralston going off, Madhun as usual seen nothing wrong with it. As for Sky and it in-house loony what can one say, maybe a hair transplant too many, Stans too nice to put him down
Too many people are unhappy with the team, but Postecoglou still in the process of strengthening, at the end of the season moan, support during the upgrade.

My concern at the moment is twofold

1. Our inability to convert chances.
And more alarmingly

2. 13/14 corners again last night, numerous free kicks and plenty of crosses into the box and I think we got a Celtic head on the ball once, we must have the worst stats in the league for getting a head on the ball!!

Contentious decision for the rainjurs? it was 50/50, referee couldn’t be sure/gave the benefit of the doubt* delete as applicable, rainjurs would have won anyway, sometimes eggs are soft boiled, sometimes eggs are hard boiled, they are still eggs. Jesus H the level of debate on Sky at the minute. We’d be better off with the cookie monster and basil brush.

Contentious decision for the Celtic? 8 page pullout in the daily ranger, astrophysicists analysing the macgruder footage to confirm Celtic benefitted unfairly, govt chaired inquiry into the alleged bias of the SFA, calls for reform, calls for VAR (but not really they aren’t that daft), analysis of what it is in the Japanese psyche that makes them cheat. Oh and Kris Boyd. It’s definitely 100% offside.

GET IT RIGHT UP YEEZ.

I love the energy of the Diary, yesterday “lets pack it all in, they’ll never let us win”, today “the bastards will never grind us down”.

Not having a go at Ralph, as it probably sums a lot of us up, it does me!

I usually watch the games in the pub in good company but last night I was home alone, teatotal, which probably added to the tension.

During the 2nd half I got increasingly frustrated, not that we were struggling but yet again we hadn’t got into a comfortable position during our total dominance in the first, leaving us no margin of error.

In the clod light of day, it was great that they were able to dig in and hardly give Hearts a sniff but on other days, no matter how well we play, a simple slice of bad luck/reffing may undo all the hard work if we don’t take our chances.

It was also worrying that on only the 2nd December we needed 3 injury substitutions, although it looks like only Ralston is a concern, with 9 more games before the break.

Ralph, thought you summed the goal last night perfectly. An excellent result, the Hun made progress early doors because they played the harder teams at home snd the softer ones away. Now the reverse will occur. We have had Sevco, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs away. When Ralston went off I thought we’d lost a bit, heart and skill that bhoy.

Step 1. Starting from next season don’t buy any tickets for Scottish football associations cup games.
Step 2. Don’t buy any tickets for away matches in the regular top of the league.
Step 3. (I know this will be dreaming) don’t lift your scarf but still sing
You will never walk alone.
TV audiences over the world will question why is this happening.
Not every fan will do this but when people see a change they look they enquire why.

Now that was a grim second half. We played like strangers and lost all
the good habits we had shown in the first half. Mikey Johnson?….couldnae
pass watter. How could we play so comfortably in the first half and
then struggle so badly in the second half? If that’s what’s gonna happen
every time we have to make substitutions due to injuries then we’re in
trouble. It was a relief to hear the final whistle.

Robert Madden has been a Scottish referee since 2002 and a FIFA referee since 2010. In that time there has been no improvement in the way he officiates a game. None of the SFA/SPFL referees have.

On Sportsound today Crawford Allan (perfect name for the role) head of refereeing in Scotland handed Madden his arse on a platter. Wrong over Kyogo goal and Jota drop ball. Bring in VAR to save Scottish fitba from Glasgow bias. Stage set for Sevco pens and opposition reds for the rest of the season.

It’s been abundantly clear already, Woof! Woof! (you dog!) that they’ll (the LRA) will pretend to level things up in the cups. The League (and the EUFA gold) is their ONLY hope and Celtic PLC is involved, collusive and submissive to the SFA/SPFL’s target; new huns win league and survive on Euro-cash.
And FFP hasn’t been crossed?
Aye, RIGHT.
FFP is not DESIGNED to be crossed, like the new huns, it’s a sham.

Excellent performance by Celtic today, and that was with enforced changes due to injury. It was 3 going on 7 and we looked really comfortable. Wee Kyogo ran his arse off and never gave the Dundee Utd defense a moment’s peace.
I see an “offside specialist” linesman was picked today in answer to all the complaints about Kyogo’s “offside” goal against Hearts. He flagged for offside on 3 occasions that were shown to be clearly onside. Obviously there are “peepul” hurting and gnashing their teeth behind the scenes.
Next game for “them” is Hearts at Tynecastle…let’s see if Robbie Neilson and his team are as vocal and aggressive in that match.
Well done Liam Scales…welcome to Celtic.

Great comment Funkky. There’s much to be positive about at Celtic FC on the park just now. Ange has taken on a really difficult task and providing (in general) great football to watch. Main opposition is the Lanarkshire Referees.
As they perennially interfere with our play, some fans get frustrated and blame the team; a double winner for that freemasonic scum.
Other matters will be FORCED upon the Board. They’ll (the Board) have no hiding place. Research plus patience normally results in TRUTH. It’s coming.
If Madden, Beaton or whichever hun refs this game (Hertz vs new huns) they’ll need to constantly remember it’s not Celtic who are the opposition.
Look for much confusion and possibly a score draw. (the new huns will get a dodgy goal/pen and the hertz’ll mibbaes score too. 1-1, 2-2 at FT.
But really, if WE do OUR job properly, neither hertz nor the new huns can stop us. The Ten wasn’t stopped by the new huns, it was sold out by Lawwell and THAT should NEVER be forgotten nor accepted.
The highest paid man at CP sells us down the river……..Aye, not FN on.
