Celtic happy to wait for McGinn, Sports Direct, Valiant Valur

260

The exciting shock in last night’s big game saw Icelanders Valur record a 1-0 home win over Rosenborg in the first qualification round of the Champions League.  Whoever wins this tie faces Celtic (caveat acknowledged) in the second round.

There is a long way to go for Valur, Wednesday’s game in Norway will be a major test, but even if Rosenborg emerge, it is encouraging to see them stretched, rather than comfortable winners.  Let’s hope Valur have a famous day in Trondheim.

Sports Direct were back in court against Newco yesterday, with a judge confirming their case had merit and deserved High Court consideration.  A judge would not agree to hear a civil dispute unless steps had been taken by the pursuer to settle the matter out of court.

This raises the obvious question: Why didn’t Sports Direct and Newco just get his sorted out before incurring significant legal costs, not to mention the embarrassment of yet another ‘favourable settlement’?

It is possible that the Newco’s day-to-day management do not have the levers in place to make decisions like this, and that those who are able to make such decisions exist in a fantasy land.  But there is another possibility: one party might want to take this all the way.

Newco have already made it known that delivery of replica shirts will not happen until next month at the earliest.  If Sports Direct are in in for the long haul, that could be very optimistic.  Not that Newco have done or said anything to create ill feeling at Sports Direct.

It is clear Celtic want John McGinn but he will not be crucial to their plans next season.  If the player is happy to wait, Celtic are too.  They can offer him a pre-contract in five and a half months.  Moreover, they can use the £2m they offered Hibs for McGinn to strengthen elsewhere.  An option is being considered.

You would think Hibs would figure where this is heading and accept an offer, but Rod Petrie is still chairman, so don’t expect anything logical to happen.  This one has a 1 January 2019 feel about it.

    The Scottish champions, seeking a third successive appearance in the group stage, will be at home for the first leg of the second round of qualifying should they progress.

     

    Hail Hail

     

    P.S. Valur beat Rosenborg 1.0 last night, in first leg, so not guaranteed that it will be Rosenberg.

    IIRC, there was a tranche of papers released into the public domain about 10 or 15 years ago regarding the official thinking behind Jock Stein’s knighthood snub.

     

    They confirmed that he didn’t get Sirred because the mandarins in London said the debacle of the World Club Championship against Racing Club brought the British game into disrepute.

     

    I’m sure the papers are on CelticWiki.

     

    So, nothing to do with peeved Little Englanders reacting with spite against a Scottish club with a huge Irish connection then.

     

    Phew. That’s a relief.

    Thank you very much, I’m sure it’s Wednesday we play on ? Just got to be precise for train discount booking

    An excellent post, as usual.

     

    Way back in the 60s, my late father often mused about the beginning of the decline in church attendance.

     

     

    He reckoned that if the authorities posted notices on church doors, forbidding Mass attendance, there wouldn’t be churches big enough for everyone demanding entry.

     

     

    Notwithstanding the abuses that were uncovered in recent years and, probably worse, the cover ups, the Christian message is still relevant and sorely missed in today’s ” rough spoken world”, as the “Banners of Darkness are slowly unfurled”.

     

     

    Anyway, just a thought. I will now slip quietly back to my corner and marvel at the Revolution!

  10. GreeninbingleyinOslo on

    John McGinn

     

     

    I’m not sure we need him.

     

     

    What I am sure of is that the last thing we need to do is to be held to ransom by a nasty little man like Petrie.

     

     

    £2 million is supposedly on the table which, IMO, is about what he’s worth at the moment.

     

     

    If that’s been knocked back, fine, if he wants to play for us we can get him on a pre-contract in five months for nowt. Or not. Whatever.

     

     

    But the last thing we need to be seen doing is losing a game of poker with an idiot.

     

     

    Last offer = final offer.

  11. Thomthetim

     

     

    Yes, it was an excellent post by BSR, but was there any need for Tommocelt to re-post it 3 times on the one page??

  12. weebobbycollins on

    TET…thanks for putting up the Ronaldo link…very interesting. I like Guillem Balague, shame he doesn’t cover the SPFL…

  13. hey ghuys, starting to rain here in Cheshire going out now to lie in the rain, to remind of the school bus run every time we went to ayr or troon and every year it rained but still loved it st augustines.com.

    I think Busby was granted a knighthood immediately after Manure’s 1968 success in the birthday honours list in June.

     

     

    Had the same been done with Jock, he’d have had his before the Racing débâcle took place.

     

     

    They’d probably have stripped him of it though, as we know that no “surs” ever get away with anything that might be considered dishonourable.

    That rings a big bell; I am sure there are references in the Civil Service papers to anger (in Scotland) over the fact that Matt got his gong for being second, while Mr Stein was ignored.

     

     

    I’ll dig the papers out tomorrow.

    FFin’ BBC Scotland:

     

     

    “Good Morning Scotland’s Sport, ‘there will be no coverage of the Rangers Game due to an ongoing dispute’ This will be interesting as BBC Alba have had in the past interviews, and you could have a situation where Radio Five will have live broadcast, with Football Focus included. This makes their hate [Sevco] Campaign reflect so Childishly Stupid, it just shows them up for what they are, a Republican Bunch of Beed Ratlers.”

     

    ————

     

    “I feel sorry that the company has clearly employed the wrong individuals to fit in with the company values. Employing individually, narrow minded individuals has led to a bitter fall out ,and unfair and bias reporting for a company who spent years trying to build the opposite reputation.” [If you have any idea what this means, you should possibly seek treatment.]

     

    ————

     

    “The BBC down South back what is happening 100%”

     

    ————

     

    “Exactly. The whole Corporation is rotten to the core and should be disbanded.”

     

    ————

     

    “The Scottish BBC are nothing but racist sectarian bigots, they hate anything British, Protestant, and everything to do with [Sevco].”

     

    ———–

     

    “We’ve not banned them. They’re just refusing to cover us and to hell with the thousand of license paying Rangers supporters this adversely affects, ‘f*** them they’re just huns anyway.’ ” [Admirable sentiments, Sammy.]

     

    ————

     

    “Your old immobile or infirm [Sevco] Supporter, in his house, with his radio on tonight.

     

    Feel so sorry for them.

     

    Some of them have been paying their TV and Radio licences for over 70 years yet they cannot listen to a commentary on their favourite Football Team’s first competitive game of the season.

     

    They simply won’t have a clue why their national broadcaster does not broadcast [Sevco] games.

     

    As they twiddle their radio dials scratching their heads, they will no doubt curse the fact their pension does not allow them the luxury of cable TV.

     

    Throughout their lives they had always depended on the BBC to keep them updated on the most successful Club in the country.”

     

    ————

     

    “There is nobody interested in taking them to task for their sectarian broadcast policy.”

     

    ————

     

    “I am highly skeptical there any justice to be found in any part of the entire BBC

     

    We are being forced to either ditch all tv or break the law & not buy a license or continue to pay the wages of scumbags like Cosgrove, Gordon, Gollum

     

    It’s a truly dire & to my mind quite ominous situation and the fact it is something we are paying or being asked to pay for – the initial stages of ethnic cleansing”

     

     

    I’m away to rattle my “Beeds”

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    They don’t know that BBC Pacific Quay has become a putrid and infested swamp where Rangers hating is de rigeur.

     

     

    Time to tell us all what your discussions were about Mr King. These old supporters are missing out on something they love.

     

     

    Blow it open Dave.
