    I’m not going over old ground. I’ve said it before, other people have said it before, and I don’t want to discuss it further. I don’t care whether a poster on here has Celtic credentials up the bahookey. A racist is a racist, and I will not discuss football with such a person, and this is not the place to discuss politics of that sort, although I would debate it all day and all night in another forum.

    Just caught a bit of Lomas on shortbread comkplaining about one of R@ngers goals today. Did they get a dodgy decision?

  4. James Forrest is Lennon on

    Oh yes mate. As usual. In fact, if you simply copy that question, and post it next week, and then the week after, and the week after that, I suspect there is a better than 50/50 chance you’ll get the same reply haha. I suspected this would happen the second the final whistle blew on 28 December.

     

     

    They will get every decision going. We just have to keep on picking them up and putting them down, one step at a time, mile by mile, until the finish line.

     

     

    11 in a row. What a fantastic run we’re on.

  5. Shortbread is no country for young men.

     

    Each and every country shire in bumkin terms is solicited for smokescreen value an ingrained culture of cowardly sniggeriing any variant of at least two hunpicked presenters whose anti Celtic disdain is palpably received through their tax payer transmissions of bullish bullsh*t throughout a week of nightly Chico/Gordhun rangler propaganda and gangster wordsmut lie filled bulletins.

     

    Snyde at least afford real time interaction with their roster of hun studio word criminalists.

     

    Tic Toc Tic Toc…goes the Tim clock for the hun lodged appeal.

     

    I feckin’ hate them.

  6. This morning at 7.15 am celtic f.c lost one of its devoted fans ,in the death of jimmy kelly . Jimmy was a councillor for 15 years within east ayrshire council . and represented the ward of muirkirk ,lugar and logan . A season ticket holder jimmy followed the hoops all over europe . Those of you with good memories will recall the front page story in a sunday paper about jimmy on a corporate day at kilmarnock being ejected because he jumped up and let out a roar when celtic scored . jimmy was a tireless worker in his capacity as councillor and nothing was too much trouble to him , if his help was sought it was given no questions asked , He leaves behind a wife , son . daughter in law, and a new born grandson ( his first) he will be sorely missed .

     

    RIP JIMMY KELLY

  7. We won. Im delighted.

     

     

    Thought we had good players & OK players today. Vic & Sammi v good first half, Broonie second.

     

     

    Pity we let ourselves be knocked off our stride 2nd half.

     

     

    DU targetted VW and crowded him 2nd half. A good tactic by them & Vic is still a bit young to deal with that. Shame no other player of ours seemed to be able to help him through it. It did mean our transistion play from midfield forward was interrupted.

     

     

    However other than Daly’s header we didn’t give much away and we were close to adding a third.

     

     

    Glad to see KC come on looking fit AND lean. He brought composure and confidence.

     

     

    Two new signings for us really: KC & EI

     

     

    A direct speedy centre forward would be handy too!!!

  8. Larsson and McStay on

    Not long back from the game.

     

     

    Personally I thought Dundee Utd played pretty well today from the start , and without firing on all cylinders , we’ve saw the game out and took an important 3 pts today.

     

     

    Last season it was the inability to see the same fixture out , remember their last minute equaliser, and also home draws with ICT and Killie that were as much our downfall as that defeat in Inverness or Sammi’s missed pen at Ibrox.

     

     

    Had Traynor and English on for some of the drive home but turned them off as I realised it was the latest propaganda vehicle for the “Scottish football needs Rangers” party.

     

     

    I’ll happily settle for Celtic cutting their cloth accordingly as there’s “no Sky TV deal without Rangers” and if that means downsizing so be it. It’s a price we should be happy to pay for the integrity of the game up here.

    Spot on. All their Friends in black, in the media and in the SFA can’t save them if we keep on winning.

    Your buddy (I refuse to name him or any of his AKA’s) is a racist, a bigot & a Neil Lennon hater.

     

     

    If you’ve not been around CQN long enough to know that then you shouldn’t really be questioning those who have been or do know.

  11. Pleased enough with 3 points today. We were good in the first half and looked like adding to that at the start of the 2nd before Rankin’s cracking shot changed the mood music of the crowd.

     

     

    Two very smart saves from Fraser today, one in the opening minutes and one from a Daly (?) header. No-one had a bad game but there were a few who had nervy games when caught up with the brittle crowd. It amazes me to hear several isolated voices in the Jock Stein Upper shouting their abuse to general bemusement from those around them. They had no wit and no humour, just rank abuse for which they seemed to expect to be applauded.

     

     

    On to Paisley to see who blinks first in this league race. Still proud of our bhoys

  12. James Forrrest,

     

     

    You conviction gladdens my heart

     

     

    However, should the serial non tax paying recidivists receive the most lenient penaly available (say a few points for a few seasosns) then do you truly think the magnificent Celtic die hards will deliver the ultimatum you advance?

     

     

    And will the board, who I admire and respect, realise that we would rather support a youth team to the title if we lose revenue, than keep our oposites in the league?

     

     

    It’s all up in the air but I am pessimistic. MWD made some excellent suggestions recently about how we should organise but I fear the forces of the nasty establishment have formulated their response already.

     

     

    Hail Hail

  13. Not long back in, traffic worse than usual due to London Rd closure.

     

     

    This is a traditionally difficult fixture safely negotiated with Rogne, Mulgrew and Forster ending the game solidly

     

    to ensure all three points.

     

     

    Celtic’s twinned strikers Hooper and Stokes did just enough along with Victor’s header to win this game, but as usual the game shifted

     

    with a failure to finish off opposition and capitalise on dominance. Celtic allowed Utd back strongly, with their five man midfield that

     

    always features when Celtic tire, with less numbers, resulting in failure to get the ball forward and create.

     

     

    We’ve seen this game before, and from the moment Ian Rankine scored the game was transformed and in the balance until Neil Lennon

     

    withdrew Stokes, who was now surplus, and even although Ki didn’t play particularly well, it was a good call by the manager. Izzy understandably struggled for fitness, and when Ledley filled in for him, the other sub Commons touch in the middle, was a factor in seeing the game out and winning.

     

     

    Scott Brown never stopped but along with Adam Matthews they both had a hard shift on the right flank, against the better SPL quality and organisation Dundee Utd always seem to provide when they comet Celtic Park. Samaras put in a power of work, if only he could finish more clinically.

    Don’t post often, mostly lurk.

     

    Tonight, reading back facebook, a United fan had posted comments before Kick Off. During the game a young Rangers fan (17/18/19ish) had hijacked the comments column and left horrendous racist and sectarian abuse about a. Victor and b. Catholics. I reported the abuse to facebook but then on contemplation, I phoned the police and reported him. The complaint has been logged and a call back has confirmed that they are treating this matter seriously, the lady I spoke to was appalled at the language and content.

     

    Struggling to believe the vile and hate, hope they teach this idiot a lesson.

     

    Sorry, rant over

  17. Well done to all the staff at celtic fc today 11 spl wins in a row is a fantastic achievement. Well done also to the part timers Newington yc on beating Glentoran fc ( one of the big two) in the Irish cup. Neither of which will get the media coverage that is deserved, maybe that what makes something inside so strong.

  18. Didn’t watch the huns game but by the sounds of it they got the benefit of ‘honest mistakes’ again. Apparently Goian second was clearly very cynical and should have led to a second booking. This is what we up against.

     

     

    I thought Rogue had a fine game, my man of the match. Impressed with how he played Daly and Jelavic is the old firm game.

    We keep on hearing that Rangers must be saved because the whole of Scottish football depends on them. This isn’t an O** F*** thing though – no-one was suggesting Scottish football would suffer when Celtic’s future was in danger in 1994. So because the health of Scottish football depends on Rangers, the rules must be bent beyond breaking point to ensure they are still around. We had extension-gate in 2008, when the season was extended solely for their benefit, with the SFA offering to postpone the Scottish Cup Final for them. We’ve had three seasons of Honest Mistakes since then, just to ensure they got the CL money on which their survival depends.

     

     

    It’s really just a sporting manifestation of the financial maxim that certain banks are, “too big to fail.” These banks, because they are too big to fail, must be protected by the government. The government must step in and bail them out when they make investment and lending decisions which backfire to such an extent that they face oblivion. If the government doesn’t step in to bail them out, financial armageddon awaits.

     

     

    Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, famously remarked that, “If they’re too big to fail, they’re too big.” From wikipedia, “One of the problems that arises [from too big to fail] is moral hazard whereby a company that benefits from these protective policies will seek to profit by it, and take positions that are high-risk high-return, as they are able to leverage these risks based on the policy preference they receive.”

     

     

    Greenspan’s position is that any bank considered, “too big to fail,” should be broken up, or reduced in size.

     

     

    That quote could have been written for the Huns. For over 20 years they have spent other peoples’ money, and for nearly a decade defrauded the taxman, safe in the knowledge that they are too big to fail and if needs be, the government (or in this case the SFA/SPL) would step in to bail them out. They have been bailed out for the last three seasons, or “The Era of the Honest Mistake,” as they are surely destined to be remembered as when the history of Scottish football is written in years to come.

     

     

    Now the football authorities are preparing to bend their own rules well beyond breaking point, to ensure that a manifestation of Rangers can continue in the top flight, “for the good of Scottish football.” The problem of moral hazard therefore remains. The Newhun FC will already be too big to fail the moment they are admitted to the SPL.

     

     

    So Scottish football stands at a pivotal moment – we can cut Rangers down to size for the good of Scottish football, or we can give them preferential treatment, “for the good of Scottish football.

     

     

    A lot has been made recently of the need to use, “sporting integrity,” to fight the plans to admit Newhun FC into the SPL. I think two other terms are equally as important, and I personally will be utilising them at every opportunity:

     

     

    1) Moral hazard

     

     

    2) If they’re too big to fail, they’re too big.

     

     

    Scottish football will find a new equilibrium minus the Huns. It may take a while. It may mean taking one step back to take two steps forward, but in the medium to long term, it will prosper. Newhun FC will eventually make their way into the SPL, but it will have been made clear to them that Scottish football does not depend on them, and their interests will never again be allowed to override the interests of the game as a whole.

     

     

    Admitting Newhun FC straight into the SPL will not save Scottish football. It will destroy it.
