Celtic Diary Wednesday April 19: Get It Right Next Time ?

The media are reporting that Cameron Carter Vickers will undergo surgery on a knee problem after the cup semi final. He probably will, but he will play in the game, certainly as things stand.

 

 

 

 

What’s also interesting is the beginning of the negative Celtic stories so far ahead of the game. They even managed a headline that was a little bit misleading over at the Record…..

 

 

Cameron Carter Vickers in major Celtic injury sweat as he faces surgery call with Rangers cup clash looming

 

 

Expect to see a few more than usual stories about players leaving, notably Abada, who probably will, and O’Riley, who probably won’t.

 

 

And even players who didn’t want to come in the first place, opting instead for Brighton and the best league in the world,

 

 

Another misleading headline….. again in the Record…

 

 

Kaoru Mitoma ‘flattered’ by Celtic transfer interest as Brighton superstar reveals why it had to be a no

 

 

As the player is out of contract in the summer, and has again been linked with Celtic, where his pals are, one could be forgiven for thinking they meant he’s turned down an approach recently, especially given Ange’s way of working the transfer market, but no, this was when the wizard of Aus arrived, and was putting his team together.

 

 

“I was flattered, but also I knew that the Premier League has the highest level of football in the world. This was why I accepted Brighton’s offer straight away. I did give some time to think about Celtic too, however, my desire to play in the strongest league in the world was very high, as well as my desire to play with and against the best players in the world.” 

 

 

You can’t blame him, though one can’t help wondering if things have changed enough for him to cast his eyes north…..

 

 

 

Speaking of misleading headlines, the Record went for the treble….

 

 

Rangers issue 3 million new shares as Ibrox club create cash boost opportunity.

 

 

The season book renewals are out, there’s a transfer window just weeks away, and they need a cash boost ?

 

 

Sorry, another cash boost, a fortnight after the last one ?

 

 

Predictably, the article steers well away from the awkward questions, but even the gullibillies must know there is a problem.

 

 

 

 

One can only speculate is to its nature.

 

 

 

In an entirely unconnected way, here’s a picture of a bus…..

 

 

City to City Coaches

 

 

And here’s a record I bought the other day, also unconnected to anything else in this tat.

 

 

 

Bruce Springsteen: Pay Me My Money Down (Music Video 2006) - IMDb

 

 

 

This new idea of filling the diary with unconnected nonsense will be repeated in about a fortnight, we hear.

 

 

 

The Green Brigade have come in for criticism over their pyro displays, and, according to the Record, who are surpassing themselves just lately, they are entirely innocent.

 

 

The blame, it seems, lies elsewhere.

Is everyone else getting mental big cogs and Sargent Bilko stripes in the comments? I had a game with those cogs and plastic straws when I was a kid. Still wonder why Santa didn’t know what Scalextric was.

Aye, but at least cogs are better than the big grey sections that were covering all the comments….half a loaf and all that..

Yes, cogs and big pointy arrows and a Plus & Minus sign under the comments that doesn’t work either.

If this is an improvement on the page I dread to think what it was like before.

Unless of course Paul Howie just likes big cogs …

Not a fix as such but on a PC if you keep the cursor to the left or right of the comments section when you’re scrolling down then you won’t see these until you need to comment.

As my dear, dear step-mother mentioned, if you throw enough mud, some will stick, and she really had it in for me. Same as the Record against us, we learn to laugh at their jealousy and greed and carry on regardless. The sevco desperation keeps us strong and jealousy is a back-handed compliment, we must have something they want. Tough. As for Marilyn, is she the only one who feels safe in Ange’s arms? Hope all is well with Cameron, probably the best signing we have made under Ange. Quality will come and go, sad but the nature of the beast that is fitba’, just need a coach who is aware and ready to replace as needed. Thanks Ange. COYBIG!

The latest share issue at Ibrox…converting loans to equity, in respect of John Bennett and George Taylor (when you look at % shareholdings, these are the only two shareholders whose shareholdings have increased since this share issue, so it’s a safe bet it was their loans being converted to equity.) It gets loans off the books.It also has the effect of diluting, in percentage terms, the shareholdings of David King and Club 1872.

Just been catching up and the last 2 Diaries have been absolutely terrific in so many ways. To talk of Ange and Big Jock in the same sentence makes absolute sense to me.
The ethics are remarkably similar, as is their footballing outlook, and understanding that ENTERTAINING our supporters is paramount without sacrificing results. Beautiful, winning football. Players (and directors) will come and go for all sorts of reasons but it’s MANAGERS that ultimately matter. I feel that if Ange is treated properly by our, often defective, Board he’ll feel ‘at home’ in Paradise and his footballing ambitions can be achieved. That means we go further in Europe and absolutely trash the “best klub in the wurruld” crap from the fans of Rangers FC (IL) and Sevco Scotland Limited (as they were when they played their 1st EVER game vs Brechin on 31st July 2012.)
More of the same please Ralph and best wishes with your book about truth, honesty and integrity in Scottish fitba.

Good to get rid of all the grey bears or whatever . We could end season well if we got rid of Crawford Allan & cheats . Were the refs & VAR operators always cheats or did Kenny Clark indoctrinate them . It used to be Rangers won leagues by cheating now they are cheating to remain 2nd

Be careful Ralph, you’ll have the “don’t click” mob on your back for quoting the

For quite some time I’ve had more than just reservations about values on Transfermarkt UK which some people swear by. The brighter ones swear at it!
The new huns are actually ‘valued’ above us!!!!!
Of course, this includes a ‘valuation’ of 11 million euro for a Colombian thug soon to exit for free!?
Just where on this fukked-up, capitalist world can the truth be found nowadays?
Replies on a pin-head please……..
