Celtic Diary Saturday January 14: Take It On The Chin

Well, there we have it.

 

 

The new CEO is just as spineless as the last one when it comes to calling out injustices.

 

 

With Kilmarnock man Greg aitken the de facto referee today, the potential for honest mistakes is almost unlimited.

 

 

Celtic will have to be at their very best to overcome an extra hurdle, and sooner or later some of our players, maybe those who came here to develop and move on, will consider bringing their exit plans forward.

 

 

There’s every possibility that the manager might start to see things that way as well, despite his swipe at claims he’s lucky from the new manager at the new club over the river….

 

“I agree, mate. I’m an extremely lucky man. I work for a fantastic football club with fantastic people. I’ve got a beautiful family. I’ve been doing this for 25 years now and long may it continue.” 

 

 

Which is the correct way to deal with these sort of accusations….if that’s the right word.

 

 

It takes the punch out of the more ludicrous claims, such as those of  chunky funster and former lower league football manager Ally McCoist, when he said’

 

 

“I’ve got to say, in terms of that new signing Johnston, that is the quickest attack of paranoia I’ve ever seen from a sportsman in modern life. Honest to God.  

 

 

My old martial arts teacher said that the only difference between total paranoia and total awareness is in how you deal with it.

 

 

For Canadian johnston, it was refreshing to see that new eyes and ears see and hear exactly what we’ve been aware of for decades, and as for McCoist claiming it was the quickest attack of [aranoia, he might want to remember his own “who are these people ” rant, which was designed to pressure those who refused to let his new club into the top league just weeks after they had been formed.

 

 

But when someone says we’re paranoid, they’re right.

 

 

And we are right to be so.

 

 

When Aitken was handed the remote control for the VAR telly in tonights game, there could be no doubt that he was chosen specifically as a slap in the face to Celtic, a massive statement from the SFa that they are in charge and if we don;t like it we can fuck off.

 

 

Well, perhaps we should.

 

 

We could certainly start by boycotting their tournament, the Scottish Cup, as a support, and whichever company is sponsoring it, if , indeed, the elite marketeers at Hampden have actually found a sponsor, should have their products or services taken off our shopping lists.

 

 

The board may have proved to be spineless, but the support have never been, and now it’s time to flex our muscles.

 

 

 

Ideally, either a late entry or early exit today would draw attention to the game and it’s peculiar choice of official.

 

 

As for Nicholson and his silent minority, a few emails asking him when he’s actually going to start taking his job seriously might stir him up a bit.

 

 

When will enough be enough ?

 

 

Elsewhere, and the manager has said we should maybe take a little less notice of the transfer stories in the press, claiming that around ninety per cent of them are bollocks.

 

 

That does explain why it’s been quiet over at the ranch, as there may not actually be anything for the hands to talk about.

 

when a player leaves, or is about to leave, he says his ta ta’s to everyone.

 

 

no one has said ta ta to anyone yet, and although a couple or three are expected to move on, nothing is certain yet.

 

 

 

As for incomings, the media have no idea whatsoever, they never have and will continue their policy of making things up and hoping for the best.

 

Shocking, if you ask me.

 

 

And I asked Meryl Streep, who gave a reasonably harsh but fair assessment of the Diary….

 

 

Hypocrite GIF - Hypocrite Phony Meryl Streep - Discover & Share GIFs

 

 

 

 

Speaking of boycotts , there were calls for Ibrox fans from Ibrox fans to boycott PLZ soccer, who dared to speak some sense on matters VAR…

 

 

 

 

 

Over and over again, Celtic have proved that the SFA agenda has been against them, which makes the policy of ignoring the current wave of hostility even more mystifying.

 

 

Winning a treble despite the blatant efforts of the establishment to stop us doesn;t make it any sweeter.

 

It makes it more difficult, and even more difficult when your own club makes little or no effort to stand up for itself.

 

 

 

which is why this weeks Etims

 

 

 

 

is Michael Nicholson, who seems to have already folded under the influence of Peter Lawwell and his ideas that we should just take all the shit coming our way on the chin.

 

 

 

New dawn ?

 

 

No….more like groundhog day.

Excellent stuff again, Ralph.

As your Kung fu teacher says, awareness and paranoia are two different things and by & large people understand the difference.

But I’m glad you’ve called that spineless jellyfish Nicholson out for what he is as I was told to stop talking about my disgust at the board the other night, and all because someone said we should now trust them as they’ve ‘turned a corner’ …

How anyone can claim this board to be trustworthy given the facts around today’s game alone I’ll never know and Celtic blogs telling their readers and long time contributors to stop complaining about them is just beyond all comprehension or fairness.

It seems only those who have met the board members are allowed to pass judgement on them and if they say that they’re different now then we all just have to go along with that and keep our traps shut and never ever complain about them ever ever again …

Nae wonder I’m so disgusted I’m on the verge of giving the whole thing up.

That is not what I said pal. I said the division between the Board and Support is not healthy for Celtic as a whole and if we want that division to end then BOTH the Board and the support need to start building trust in each other.

It helps when you talk to an executive at Celtic not a board member who wants to improve relationships with the support if there is a degree of trust between the two parties and for you to twist my meaning on another blog is despicable.

Why would anyone trust a word you say?

Please do as you said and give up the whole thing.

I didn’t twist your words, mate, you’ve been defending the board all week, in fact, since they donated the 11 grand to the Foundation, which is completely against how the Celtic support feels.

So the real question is, why would anyone trust a word YOU say?

You have your opinion and I have mine and you trying to force the support to bend to your will is out of order as we all have our own individual opinions, even telling me personally I need to ‘learn forgiveness’ …

You’ve even been having a go at Phil’s posters for expressing their dissatisfaction at the behaviour of the board, as though you alone are now the sole authority and what the board thinks and how they’ve ‘changed’, which is just preposterous bordering on a massive ego trip.

You’ve been firefighting on their behalf across the blogs for weeks, man, so why don’t YOU give the whole thing up?

The Celtic Shareholders who supported Res12 were informed how the decision was reached and accepted that in the circumstances Celtic offer of recompense going to the Foundation was the Celtic way to put that money to charity.
Given their 7 years of support and funding it is their feelings that matter as does their approval.
So your statement about how the support feel is just not true or relevant and I have every right to correct it.

I have been answering on Phils blog questions posed or provided information that they were unaware of and I do not recall dissatisfaction except from yourself in their response.

The number of folk like yourself who have tossed their rattles out the pram are nothing compared to those who have been kept up to date through all stages of Res12.
As someone who has not got involved in tackling The Board at every AGM since 2013 with no support from some Celtic supporters, quite the reverse in some cases you frankly have a bloody cheek to sit in judgement but self awareness is obviously not your strong point.

Re boycotting the Scottish Cup.

Id prefer if we won our way thro to the final and resused to play it.
Sky, BBC . sponsors,advertisers and UEFA would then take notice that the SFA are not fit for purpose.

Maybe not fair on our players some might say, but they would be true legends and total rebels in my opinion.

The more the SFA do it without question. The more blatant cheating will continue. Because they know they can. I feel for those paying into such a corrupt, cheated Scottish game. And Aberdeen fans coming down from up north for tomorrow game.

Reply to  Grant Sloan

The best opportunity to make the SFA accountable will present itself in 2024 but the support need to get organised now to make sure the opportunity is not lost.

In 2024 the English FA will have to implement the recommendations in the Tracey Crouch report under the force of law.

Two in particular are game changers. Independent oversight of the FA and establishment of Shadow Boards drawn from supporters at each club with a ability to raise concerns about the running of their club.

There is no reason why the same recommendation cannot be made part of Scots Law but unless there is pressure on The Scottish Government from supporters they might just ignore on basis that Scottish supporters do not care enough.

This issue goes beyond Celtic to supporters of all clubs and the SFSA who represent them are well aware of the opportunity as are some MSPs, so there will not be a better opportinity to break the mouldy mould of Scottish football as it is today.

I would post links but that condemns this post to moderation but if you want to see the Tracey Crouch recommendation and a report on progress in The Times visit Phil Mac Giolla Bhain’s site and look for his blog about change coming from the outside to become aware of the possibility for change we all seek and prepare to act to make it happen via existing recognised groups who themselves are aware of the potential for change.

Well, I have the measure of you now, little old man, as I see how threatened you were when challenged on your sudden assertion that we can all ‘Trust The Board’ now …

No matter what we think or feel, we must all ’Trust The Board’ just because YOU say so …

Now isn’t that very odd that after the way board treated you all those years that you suddenly go on a mission where, after they make the 11k donation to the Celtic Foundation, you’re suddenly on a mad mission telling every Tim on every blog that they’re ‘wrong’ about the board and now we can all ‘trust them’ ?

Now it’s clear these two events are directly linked as you’ve just proven it by making sure I can’t question you on it directly any longer, like PityMeVin did the other week by asking if you are employed by the board, which you denied.

I’m not saying you’re working for the board but of course it makes one wonder why you’ve suddenly performed this incredible about face despite those same men on that same board lying to your face every chance they got for a decade.

So tell us, Auldheid, WHY do suddenly trust this board of known and proven liars and WHY won’t you allow anyone who disagrees with your volte face to air their disgust at the board?

You’ve just written on SC that I should have asked you these questions on SC but Mick very specifically told me on Thursday night that ‘everyone knows my opinions on the board and that I should move on’ to something else, which I did, I spent all night talking music with other posters.

Yet when I decide to air my views on the board elsewhere, since I was no longer allowed to discuss it on SC, you perform yet another curious about turn and start accusing me of ‘accusing you’ of who knows what, as I haven’t accused you of anything, as verified by numerous posters on SC and that I’m neither allowed to air my opinion either on SC nor elsewhere?!

That is outrageous controlling behaviour, mate, beyond outrageous, you’re on a self obsessed power trip here.

And no, it’s not good enough for the all powerful Auldheid, that he silences anyone who speaks against the PLC, no, he has to make sure that any inquisitive or disruptive voices are silenced and banned completely from every site Celtic site around!

As I wrote last night, you’re on a massive ego trip, pal, and one of these days soon you’re gonna fall off that high horse of yours and I’ll be there laughing in your face.when you do,

So my forgiveness is withdrawn as you’ve just stabbed me in the back when I wasn’t even looking and that kind of karma will haunt you forevermore.

Get it round ye, ya board loving @rselicker.

And remember, chump, THAT is the only insult I’ve thrown at you this entire time and the only ‘accusation’ about you that I’ve made, as you’ve been jumping down the throats of posters on various blogs all week, even on Phil’s site with your jumping out the woodwork on his fair minded long term poster Terence Nova for him daring to mention the possibility that Lawwell’s return might well be related to the protracted transfer of Cho.

Everywhere I’ve turned this week all I’ve seen has been you firefighting on the board’s behalf, which, to any rational observer, is VERY questionable, at best, after their decade of lying to you.

So I hope you don’t enjoy your holiday, mate, you’ve blown it with me by showing yourself up for the vile little self obsessed ego driven tosspot that you are.

You’ve been provoking me all week and deliberately causing fights with posters just so you can get them banned from blogs is the act of a coward and a lowlife, a gutter snake who felt his self imposed ‘authority’ threatened and doesn’t have the gumption to let the thing go as his ego needs reassured continuously that it’s always and forever ‘right’, no matter how out of control it gets.

And you, my one time friend, are now well out of control.p and it WILL come back to haunt you.

Sad really.

Now get it round ye.

So if you DO try to use that post as my ‘spreading posion’ I guarantee you that you’ll be outed for what you are, as I now have the contact details of a number of bloggers form that site, the majority of whom have made their displeasure and disgust clear to you & Mick that I should NIT have been banned at all and almost all of whom are on my side in this.

As for your pathetic attempt at justification for getting me banned by saying to SeS that you were also ‘just standing up for yourself’ well, SeS fair put you in your place cos you’re NOT banned, are you, but I am, and on your say.

Your actions are now being closely monitored by my friends on that blog.

In other words, mate, you’ve f*cked it, it’s blown up in your face, as the Bhoys on there are now starting to see what low life creeps you and that likewise ego driven clown Mick really are.

You thought this would strengthen you but it’s weakened both of you irrevocably as now everyone can see that you two are nothing but a pair of sleekit cowards.

Great piece again. The message boards and FB sites are full of Celtic fans complaining, quite rightly. But it’s a waste of emotion and energy. It’s time for action. Unhappy with the SFA choice of officials, take action. Unhappy with the bias in VAR use take action. We can see now that talking is just hot air. The fans need to use their only power, that as consumers. Hit the economies of the SFA/SPL and other clubs. It’s not paranoia to call out the corruption in our sport if we take action.

I’m very glad to read that the Celtic fans are complaining, Michael, as I’ve en compiling all week and was literally told to stop moaning about the board by a senior figure who once led the resistance.

In fact, he even accused me of being ‘paranoid’ …

So your sentence proves that I’m not the only disgruntled Celtic fan in Earth who’s had enough of our wholly corrupt board and their wholly corrupt Sevco enabling shenanigans.

The reason for giving up resistance using the AGM as the medium was that in spite of a mountain of evidence presented to callout the SFA no one took any action, in fact Celtic supporters who I expected to be gung ho actively resisted it.

Now you come on here misrepresenting what I offered you as help, help that you acknowledged as I recall, then you use that to say I called you paranoid tells me you are beyond help.

From Scottish Legal News and worth a read. ““I am now reluctantly bound to accept that in Scotland there could never be any wrongs committed by individuals who subsist under the protective cloak of the Crown and judiciary. I reserve my rights to challenge this in England and through the European courts.” A quote from one of the men attacked by the Scottish legal establishment to protect a football club. I was reminded of the attack on NL in 2003 by a student lawyer and doctor. My understanding is he attempted to avoid these 2 having their careers ruined through an apology and received further abuse. One is now a consultant anaesthetist in Australia. No doubt the other practicing law. Quite how Scotland, who prides itself on one of the oldest legal systems on the planet can emerge from this and provide confidence that an independent country can provide a safe place for people like me, and most of you, remains to be seen. But watch this case closely. There’s a ticking time bomb for our legal and police service somewhere in a European court.

Reading the legal report it talked about the equivalent of perjury, perverting the course of justice, criminal conspiracy, falsifying records etc.

Clearly the proven allegations were so grave that the severest sanction was proposed ie formal advice.

Wait, what and even that was struck out as Wood is going to retire in May.

I’m sure that’s the way it works universally…

“Norman Stanley Fletcher, you are a habitual criminal…and I’m going to punish you with the severest punishment, formal advice from Bob the Burglar”

‘Knob of the century’ is the Scottish Establishment, without their support the cancer that is bigotry would die on the vine. The Establishment need a hate figure, in this blighted wee country there is an obvious choice. That is why the zombies think they are – superior, but they are being sold a pup. Their hysteria about the Rankers is at every level, as stated before the only future for Celtic is a European format which will come over the next decade.

Instead of boycotting SFA cup games (boycotts never happen) how about a HUGE turnout at Hampden that does not move until wider media attention is attracted and when they ask why the turnout, there is a prepared script for spokesman to read of all the instances the SFA have failed to uphold the integrity of Scottish football and occasions of bias etc,

Point out the referee allegiance issue, allowing a fraudulent application for a UEFA Licence to be approved, not contesting the LNS Decision when the SC Ruled Rangers used ebts in an unlawful manner NOT open to other clubs and win titles unfairly as a result.

It would take organising but who is there to do it? The CST? The GB? The CSA? All of them?

There is the problem no one taking the lead with some authority to speak for the support at large.

Auldheid, having read back on the various lies you’re spreading about me over on SC right now I am now forced to retract me earlier retraction as I realise you are wholly ego driven and that it is very likely that you’ve been bought off by the Celtic board to act as their ‘ambassador for goodwill’ across the Celtic blogs, just as the sharp SC poster PityMeVin accused you of the very week you started saying we should all suddenly forgive them.

You’ve f*cked it, man, it’s blown up in your face and now everyone can see you for what you really are, a Bought & Sold lackey, and your continued lies about me on that site has proven it, and my friends there are now gathering round in full agreement that it’s becoming clearer by the day that it is YOU who is not to be trusted.

And Mick, as your dumb ally, has ensured that he no longe can be trusted either.

So get it round the f*ckin perra yeez, as you men are questionable, at least, and, given all the previous issues which both of you refuse to address, such as Sevco ticket pricing being the same as Rangers, and the boards ongoing silence on pretty much every sun committed against Celtic, proves that you and that site have been playing the Celtic support for mugs all along.

And now everyone is wise to it.

Nae luck, fella.

Good effort and only to be expected by guys in your invidious position, but as WeeRed will tell ye, when ye’re handling bombs ye better make sure ye know they won’t blow up in your face.

Not at all, Monti, I’m no trying to screw with this site nor any other.

But I won’t be accused of things I didn’t do either and since my discussion with the auld fella has been abruptly cut off due to him knowing what I was gonna do to him and him ordering his lackey to ban me then it’s only fair I have the Right of Reply.

So, no, matey, you’re reading it all wrong as susaul..

Your appearances on here are rarer than hen’s teeth these days and have been since long prior to my last input to this site.

Go on, Krusty, tell us, what has changed and what part did he play in it?

Cos what he’s saying about me now I wouldn’t say about my worst enemy and for the record, he changed NOTHING within the game, except to be told it’s over and of he’s a good boy he’ll get the occasional pay on the head off the board occasionally.

FRANK MCGARVEY: Today we say our goodbyes to a fine Celtic man, Frank McGarvey, Frank gave us of a certain vintage great moments and memories, not to mention many goals watching Celtic in our younger years.

My earliest memories of Frank was of how much leg work he put into his Celtic performances, the personification of a tryer, never gave up and hounded opposition defenders and goalkeepers, more often than not Frank got his goals, a reward for puting one hundred percent into his application, that comes from the heart, Frank embodied the famous Celtic spirit, he loved the club and he loved us, we love you back Frank.

Thanks for the memories, the iconic moments, the goals but last and not least though Frank, thank you for giving everything to Celtic, for your club and your support, you graced our Jersey and that is all we ask, your name will long live on my friend.

RIP Frank McGarvey

Morning Monti and happy new year. Frank Mc Garvey was a player blessed with talent but also a great attitude to the game and that is why he will always be remembered by the support. Any idea why our potty mouthed friend from last night wants to be called Kirsty? Perhaps she/he/it is one of those special ladies that the head of the SNP and the creepy Greens seem to favour with beards and a penis. Kirsty seems to think Auldheid was involved in getting it banned from another blog but after looking at what it produced last night I doubt the old boy had much input and any ban was self inflicted. Kirsty seems to think you are fat but being the kind soul I am I would rate you as the chubby side of cuddly. Take care old boy.

He has been abusive for years and while I have been less than angelic on here and elsewhere, bullying, threatening, harassment hasn’t been my forte.
As for being fat? Well there is no doubt I could drop a stone or two, I am more than able to stand my ground with most.

Well said Sir,

My memory today drifted to this: My Da, firing up his Matchless 650 and sidecar combo, as we left the Drip Road in the Raploch heading east to ‘Lino Toon’ (Kirkcaldy), it would be the early 1950s. Around 5 miles from ‘Lino Toon’ there was mild wind blowing west, you could smell the strong aroma of linseed oil. We visited my Great Uncle Dan, who like my Scottish Grandad was an ex miner. Dan was the spitting image of Squire Dannaher from the John Wayne film,”The Quiet Man”.
After a great visit, listening to Dan’s singing canary, itself a survivor from the Fife Pits, we travelled back home, stopping off in Cardenden to visit the graveside of John Thomson. John lies just a few miles from the defunct Bowhill colliery, that once employed around 1500 miners, John followed his Father down the pit as a link man. Think it was around 1925 that there was an explosion down the mine that killed around 10 miners, a dangerous working environment. John Thomson gave his young life to the Celtic cause, he was bravery personified. John Thomson RIP was one of the major factors in me becoming a Celtic supporter, the other was joining a club that was “Open To All”.
