Abusive, unacceptable, media on Celtic

217

There seems to be a culture that it is your right to have a kick at Celtic, whether you have genuine reason to, or just half a story that allows your imagination to fill in the gaps.  The contrast with other clubs is absolute, in terms of the media and the Scottish Government, as well as fans.

These Radio Clyde clips, apparently quoting a Celtic fan, are maybe peak Scottish media.  When Boli Bolingoli broke lockdown rules the line was “for me, it’s all about points deduction”.

Contrast that with the reaction when five Newco players and staff broke rules.  They “hardly got a wink of sleep because they know that they’ve done wrong.  That said, they’ve made a mistake, but as long as they show remorse and as long as they realise the mistake that they’ve made, I’m sure they’ll get one more chance and I think they’re entitled to one more chance.”

You live in a land where a participating in a bully culture against Celtic advantageous.  Celtic are having a nightmare season which opens them to genuine criticism, but this orgy of destructive attack is abusive, unacceptable and must stop.

    What have the board done to combat the obvious bias in the media?

     

     

    Lennon “banned” Sky …didn’t last long did it?

     

     

    Our board and management meekly accept a seat at the back of the bus and in fact seem happy to do so.

  2. So Paul67,

     

     

    What is the club doing about it ?

     

     

    What is the club doing about the corrupt officials ?

     

     

    What has the club done about the EBT cheating years ?

     

     

    What has the club done about the same club myth ?

  5. You live in a land where a participating in a bully culture against Celtic advantageous. Celtic are having a nightmare season which opens them to genuine criticism, but this orgy of destructive attack is abusive, unacceptable and must stop.

    If only it would stop on CQN first.

  6. The shows regular pundits include ex rangers First team players Alex Rae, Gordon Dalziel, Andy Halliday and Fraser Wishart. Thiey have occasional stand in Andy Little and Cammy Bell. That’s 6 ex Rangers first team pundits. Until recently they had Derek Johnstone as mainstay .

     

     

    To balance that up, they have Mark Wilson.

     

     

    Can you imagine a high profile west of Scotland Radio show with 6 ex Celts and 1 ex Rangers player making yp the panel! There would be protests outside it fron the Orcs.

     

     

    Throw in a decrepit journalist who was actually banned from Parkhead on more than one occasion to the mix .

     

     

    As for Guidi, the biggest fanny of the lot. A never has been, cant hold a consistent viewpoint for 5 mins. Contradicts himself, sometimes mid sentence.

     

     

    But perhaps the biggest fannys of all are the “Celtic” fans who phone the show to try and convince all these ex Rangers players that Celtic are no good. A disgrace to the support.

     

     

    Do yourself a favour. Switch off, plenty of good podcasts to listen to.

  7. Don’t read the MSM, don;t listen to the radio shows and turn down the Sky offering if you can stomach the payment.

     

     

    Watch and listen instead to the Celtic podcasts like ACSOM, Huddleboard, the Cynic and our very own CBN’s contribution. Facts and good debate with Celtic at heart.

     

     

    Bit of self-discipline goes a long way.

  8. Our Board is full of Huns and drum roll wait for it………….Tories.

     

     

    They could not give a flying feck for Celtic or the working man.

     

     

    My views and I know they are not everyone’s.

     

     

    We need some fans on that board or in the right jobs with a remit to fight the clubs corner at every turn and I mean every turn.

     

     

    D :)

  9. While I guess Celtic have to oblige SKY with access to our manager and players, it baffles me that the manager still has press conferences where the “journalists” are only interested in trying to get quotes with which to attack Celtic. Do what the deid team have done and ban the likes of BBC Scotland.

     

     

    Oh, and get yourselves a good professional PR team, Celtic. Let them handle the SMSM.

  11. I don’t care about the media – that’s a battle we’ll never win.

     

     

    Get our own house in order and get back to winning trophies. That’s how Celtic answer the media and government critics.

  12. ‘Ourselves Alone’ as ever….

     

    A couple o million bigots can’t ever be wrong in a wee country.

    There’s an attempt to unite the support under the banner “they are all against us” hoping that we buy season tickets when Lennon is kept in place.

  18. ‘Celtic are having a nightmare season which opens them to genuine criticism’

     

     

     

    ###

     

     

    True.

     

     

    Hopefully not just criticism though, but questioning too.

     

     

    Like, for instance, was replacing Brendan Rodgers and his entire entourage with a single individual without any backroom staff indicative of an owner desperate to secure the 10?

     

     

    Or, say, what were the potential economic consequences for the huns if Celtic had secured the 10?

     

     

    And how did Celtic’s owner regard such potential consequences? (There might be a clue to this last one in what he said when the last club to play at Ibrox went bust).

  19. ” Abusive , unacceptable media, on Celtic ”

     

     

    Feckin media haven’t a clue about abuse, they should read CQN,

     

    Back to lurking.

  20. We have been “At the back of the bus”… for quite a few years now….the seats have probably got our names etched in the back of them…When was the last time that Celtic came out fighting…with all guns blazing….All it takes are a few choice words to unite the Club through these difficult times….but no…not a whimper….I feel that those in power at Celtic have settled into their seats nicely “At the back of the bus”…..Shame on them….We have no god given right to be on top every time….but we do have a god given right for our clubs custodians to fight for our club and to speak up for our club..no matter who or what obstacles are put before us…..again….Shame on them…

    FAVOURITE UNCLE

     

     

    MY mother lived in PICADILLY ST which was twinned with CLYDE

     

    ST .There was another CLYDE ST beside the river so CLYDE ST became CLYDEFERRY ST. Mothers maiden name GLANCY ,we might be related. I just got that info from my sister .

  22. At the start foo the season I said that this covid situation would be used to disadvantage celtic.

     

    Wee Nicola didn’t let me down.

     

    In other matters. West Ham on their way to 4th. We certainly dodged a bullet with Davie Moyes. Eat your heart out all you Moyes haters on this site.

     

    Leicester 3rd.

     

    West Ham 4th.

     

    Celtic 2nd.

     

    In a 2 horse race.

  23. Go tell the Spartim on

    Jose is too expensive we’ll go for the cheaper but equally as negative Steve Clark, think he’s a shoein, I’d take him right now if I’m honest though
