Celtic Diary Tuesday February 1: And Now, The End Is Near

 

But not for us.

 

The transfer window closed yesterday, and because Celtic finally realised it lasts more than just a frantic Sky TV sponsored day, all the business of the club had been done in the previous weeks,

 

It’s almost as though the manager had a plan, Some things will take some getting used to,

 

If Celtic have to play in early UCL qualifiers, they will do so with a settled squad who have been working together for some months, something we can say we’ve always wanted.

 

 

If Celtic don;t have to play in early qualifiers, we can expect to see a money spinning tour of Japan, which will bring in a few quid, and further raise the clubs international profile ahead of group stage UCL football.

 

 

We don’t have much to moan about after what has been probably the most productive period of wheeling and dealing since the idea of buying and selling players was first introduced in the days of black and white football.

 

 

A few youngsters have gone out on loan, to give them game time, and it seems the gaffer has decided on who he wants to finsih the season with.

 

Except Alben Ajeti, who decided he wants to stay. He turned down a move to Basel, and they don;t know how lucky they are.

 

 

Elsewhere, the headlines will be dominated by the loan secured by “rangers ” of Aaron Ramsey from Juventus.

 

Ramsey can, or could, play a bit, and he’s either fallen out with Juve or had some sort of career ending injury…or injuries, and they are happy to pay a substantial chunk of his million pound a month wage just to get him out of the door.

 

 

As the media in Scotland goes into overdrive about this stunning and game changing move, no one wants to ask the obvious question…

 

 

Why were juventus so keen to get rid of him they offered to pay nearly all his wages, and if he is still the player he was, why has no one else come in for him ?

 

Indeed, why haven’t Juventus just sold him ?

 

 

Image

 

 

Yeah, tricky one that.

 

They’ll take to him though, until he has a duff game….

 

 

Image

 

 

Even before he plays they’re telling him about the, er, northern ireland protocol.

 

Ramsey may well have been in limbo in turin, but at least now he’s been released into the gates of hell.

 

 

It will also be interesting to see how they take to their other major signing…the loannee from Manchester United, Diallo…or whatever his name is. As Desi mond revealed on the podcast, he’s had a few….

 

 

Image

 

 

It’s also a neat little deflection from the fact that ahead of an important Glasgow derby the champions haven;t strengthened their squad, they haven’t sold any of their players who are said to be unsettled, and it’s fair to say that it’s no secret they need the money.

 

 

And they did try….

 

 

Image

 

None of the Paterson money, however much it actually was, has been re-invested, which sort of underpins the decision to get out by Steven Gerrard as soon as an offer came in.

 

Even he could see the writing on the wall, even if he had to get someone to read it to him.

 

 

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Ange Postecoglou is getting his already fired up players ready for tomorrows game, which will show us if they are ready to take the mantle of champions elect.

 

One thing that worried me against Dundee United was the relative inexperience of winning crucial matches in Scotland in the team, with only Nir Biton, never really a regular, and James Forrest in the side.

 

 

Yet it was after they left the field the team seemed to go up a notch in determination, ultimately getting the reward they deserved with the winning goal.

 

 

The power Celtic begin games with, and the strength they still have at the end, largely down to the impressive squad, could well turn out to be the difference this year, and as momentum gains, it could be that not one, not two but three more trophies end up at Celtic Park.

 

 

There’s that optimism again.

 

 

Time for a cold shower.

 

 

Yesterday we had this…

Massively underwhelmed by Ramssy’s signature, has been a good player. At best an equivalent to James McCarthy. We have got good young quality in, not underestimating tomorrow night. We need to finish, they might be best to play Ramsay as ‘ goalie and out’ is that a Belfast one only? Hail Hail.

The reason Rangers(IL) players weren’t sold during the transfer window is very simple. According to the Scotsman ‘newspaper’ last week, Rangers(IL) players are very ‘loyal’.

The only Rangers(IL) players at Ibrox are McGregor and Davies and they did walking away.

They are wetting their knickers, note hysterical comments from journos, and all Ibrokes sympathisers, another smoke and mirror tactic to keep the knuckledraggers happy.
The end is coming, they have too stop Celtic winning the league, Maddhun will do his best tomorrow to assist, but even with a weakened first team Celtic will be too good

The other question studiously avoided is where is the money coming from unless it’s all of Patterson’s £4m?

A hint of deja vue or just history repeating itself?

The Ticketus mentality prevails. Pay for today with tomorrows money, what’s the worst that can happen? Nobody dies.

On our squad: if our injury luck turns we can still out point them after tomorrow and whatever the result the title race is not over.

Complacency.

CCV and Jota are still not signed permanently, the ‘troublesome’ LB position probably and others needs addressing.

Yes, we seem to be in an upward trajectory but lets leave the back-slapping until we’ve got a bit more than a LC and a 2nd position in the league to crow about.

A Significant Step Forward
When a team including Piers Corbyn went to the Police at Charing Cross police station to serve the information of crimes in four vaccination centres on January 27th, they found that the Metropolitan Police now have a new procedure to accept vax centre crime complaints.

The Met issued a crime information card bearing the crime reference number 6029679/21 and the description “CO VID 19 CRIME”
(Regarding criminal Vac cination.)

Corbyn said:

This is a significant step forward. They are not now covering up or being evasive about the Crime investigation and are streamlining the collection of information through which we will report details of what we’ve found. If they don’t contact us reasonably fast we contact them (They provided details of the Hammersmith CID officer in charge).”

Piers Corbyn shared a message to say that “Activists in other police regions across the UK now need to insist those regions also facilitate in a similar way the collection of co vid 19 crime information (regarding the illegality of vac cination) to go into investigation number 6029679/21.”*

*the crime case number for dealing with the criminality of this genocidal mass vac cination policy.

‘A group of psychologists have written to Parliament’s Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, warning that a team of civil servants dedicated to “nudging” public behaviour during the pandemic were unaccountable and unethical.

The letter’s 40 professional signatories – led by Dr. Gary Sidley, a retired clinical psychologist – said they opposed the use of dramatic adverts, which included slogans such as: “If you go out you can spread it, people will die

They also condemned the use of “images of the acutely unwell in intensive care units” on billboard and television adverts, as well as the “macabre mono focus on showing the number of Co Vid -19 deaths without mention of mortality from other causes or the fact that, under normal circumstances, around 1,600 people die each day in the U.K.”.

So you see, old men, your government has enacted a deliberately policy of fear and terror upon you to forcefully gain your compliance into accepting multiple doses of the graphene oxide, dead monkey parts, abo rted foetal cells and unidentified black particles which constitute parts of the injectable computer systems you stupidly sat and them inject into you.

As well as Piers Corbyn there are two ex police officers, two layers. a funeral director and various other well placed individuals who have seen through this scam/genocide and they have lodged numerous complaints against the doctors, the vax centres, the media, etc which the police are taking so seriously that they’ve assigned them individual case numbers, which means they are now under Active Investigation as potential crimes of conspiracy against humanity

The above report is from The Telegraph so this is now actively being reported in the UK mainstream media.

The Telegraph understands that Parliament’s Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee will investigate the use of the Behavioural Insights Team as part of its investigation into the Government’s activities during the pandemic.

It will coincide with the second anniversary of the first lockdown.’
