5 games in December, 5 poor results to avenge

833

Celtic have five games still to play this month against teams they have recorded two draws, three defeats and no wins against this season.  Hearts and Rangers conformably recorded home wins against Celtic while St Johnstone won at Celtic Park.  Udinese were fortunate to escape Glasgow with a point thanks to a late penalty, while Kilmarnock demonstrated their unpredictability by taking, then losing, a three goal lead.

There was a bit of optimistic chat over the weekend that three of our next four league games are at home but these are the teams we need to beat to win the league.  If Celtic come through this month unscathed in domestic football they will win the league, but despite current good form, this will be a huge challenge, starting against Hearts at 15:00 on Saturday.

    IMO, the legal team should have been advise to take action for brand defamation, no further correspondance wih the meeja until the case has been dealt with in the courts, simple really.

    I mean no harm to CM who, imo, is at best a stand-in CH!

     

     

    What I detect as CM’s greatest flaw is that, when he makes a mistake he, can’t get over it. The example of last season at Murderwell where, I would blame CM for both goals!

     

     

    For the rest of that game CM was a wreck and, spread the jitters throught the defence and, probably the team as a whole. I would cut CM some slack as, when the 1st ICT goal went in on that night, the ball deflected off CM, accidentaly but, from that moment on…CM was a wreck! IMO!

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    Given the unsubtle agenda against our club – I think certain sections of the media are hoping for a ban. For that reason I reckon Celtic are playing a straight bat. Today’s statement would indicate that.

    Is there a league table anywhere of how the SPL would look if all the incidents of simulation and honest mistakes were stripped out?

     

     

    Which team would come off worst?

     

    The team that disnae pay it’s taxes!

    The club should 100% have supported the fans following the ridiculous comments on BBC during the Scottish Cup final.

     

     

    However the statement today is very welcome, if somewhat overdue.

  12. Afternoon,

     

     

    Glad Celtic released that statement and is taking action.

     

     

    What is happening to the STV site, as I am curious to read the police statement regarding the ‘smashing’ of the Green Brigade.

    Hopefully todays statement is the 1st step in a new direction which will bring both the club and, ALL the fans together!

     

     

    When The Green Brigade are attacked by the establishment then, an official ‘voice’ should represent ALL of us!

     

     

    United We Stand, Devided We Fall!

     

     

    Anyway, off oot.

     

     

    Adios CQN.

     

     

    May God Bless ‘Every’ Celtic Fan.

    Why do they continue to use Celtic and Sectarian in the same headline?”

     

    Just why are the media in Scotland determined to place the name of Celtic next to a headline that screams at you “SECTARIAN SINGING”?

     

    Last night on STV News at 6 ‘clock John Mc Kay used that term in his introduction; it was quickly changed to illicit chanting after they received phone calls of complaint.

     

    This morning I was shocked to read the headline in “The Herald” by reporter Jody Harrison “Celtic escape punishment on sectarian chanting”; I emailed her right away; I await a response.

     

    Is this a tactic being used by the Scottish Media to put pressure on UEFA before they announce their decision on the so-called illicit chanting?

     

    There would appear to be a lot of outside interference in the due process; you know what they say about throwing enough mud.

     

    In the first instance the reporting of Celtic to UEFA by the match commander is unprecedented; the same match commander made the complaint to the SPL about illicit chanting during the home match against Hibs; the same match when the police officers under his command acted more in line with the police in Syria; than Scotland.

     

    I must say I am beginning to suspect that Hugh Dallas might still wield considerable power here in Scotland; the same Dallas who is still employed by UEFA after being sacked by the SFA for sectarian activity.

     

    Since we had the meeting with ACC Campbell Corrigan the Celtic fans seem to have been complimented on their support of the team; that seems to be annoying certain people in the media.

     

    These are the same people who continuingly demanded the Celtic fans changed their repertoire; then once they do that through their own choice; not through bullying tactics; the same people are still not happy.

     

    I don’t think the problem is what we sing at matches here in Scotland; the problem with them is that we are here in Scotland in the first place; well get used to it; we aint going anywhere.

  15. My spidey sense is tingling.

  18. Personally, don’t think the Celtic Statement is anywhere nearly strong enough, as well as being overdue, it’s weak.

     

     

    Maybe they are waiting until UEFA give their decision, before we make a real issue of the continual deliberate slur with the word sectarian.

     

     

    That said when you read the SFA reasons for ‘clearing us’ maybe Peter Lawell’s AGM statement about political singing, was the board getting their retaliation in first, – and we won.

  19. It did not feel like the bares were extending the hand of friendship at the League Cup Final, when they were demanding ‘I went home’ or that they wanted to be up to their knees in my blood… HH

     

     

    Police have denied that they are out to “smash” a controversial group of the Celtic support.

     

     

    Strathclyde Police responded to an article in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper that stated the force was seeking to “smash the Green Brigade”.

     

     

    On Tuesday the force issued a statement on their official Facebook page that said: “This weekend an article appeared in Scotland on Sunday that suggested that Strathclyde Police are out to ‘smash the Green Brigade.’ We would like to make it clear that these comments do not reflect the view of the Force.

     

     

    “Our primary concern is to ensure that all fans of all clubs enjoy going to the football safely. Those fans who misbehave or cause offence to others will, of course, be subject to Police action.

     

     

    “Football is our national sport. It has the power to inspire kids and bring people together. We want that to be the story. We’re sure that you do too.”

    it will be interesting to see if the EPL / FA take action against Seb Larsson’s dive on Sunday. Along with Aluko’s these are probably the 2 worst cases of blatant cheating I have seen for years. Both should be made an example of……. wont hold my breath on the latter.

     

    The media / press wanted mikolunus hung drawn and quartered for his dive against scotland, in fact gordon smith @ the sfa at the time was probably the most vocal. coupled with this the ref that awarded the pen for the czechs against scotland in the last couple of minutes wasn’t afforded the “honest mistake” line…… one type of reporting for one and another type for us.

     

    On sunday’s game and the penalty theme, did anybody else think we had a shout in the first half when Cha released his shot and was caught late?

    Steinreigned..,

     

    that doesnt explain why the board refused to take legal action or back the support over the hampden/bbc, IMO they are complicit in the vilification of the Celtic support. This pathetic statement gives the impression they are expressing their concern for the maligned support, when in actual fact they are specifically referring to the club, again something they see as a seperate entity from the support.

     

    The board are doing all in their power to divide and conquer the support, initially by vilifying the green brigade a campaign they continue to operate. If it was my house the polis would require all sorts of legal permissions to film my support, in fact I would be very public about the intentions and excuses offered by the polis for operating in such a fashion in my house.

     

    Dont kid yourself, the boardare not on our side, they worship amon.

    I have stated before that there are only two or three “songs” that I have heard sung by Celtic supporters that I personally find offensive. I am not alone in that. They are are not Irish songs, and they are certainly not Celtic songs, and thankfully they are rarely heard, due to the fact that only the smallest of a minority of Celtic supporters see fit to sing them. Then and now. It doesn’t take much though, to ruin even the greatest of songs. That was achieved on Sunday by a minority of Celtic supporters. Dominic Behan wrote ‘We’re all off to Dublin in the Green’, a bona fide song from a bona fide Irish republican and socialist. My own early memories of the song are by the Dubliners, and it was sung at the Celtic end in the main. There was add ons then, and sadly, all those years later there are add ons now. The difference is that while, back in the day I found them embarrassing, nowadays I find them gratuitously offensive. They may, and I use this word carefully, be sectarian in their nature. They need to stop.
