Change underway at SFA, Irish Voice launch

650

Some of the reaction to Peter Lawwell’s promotion to the top table of the bowling club yesterday was thoroughly entertaining, including some from our own side.  As a rule, I’m happy to germinate nonsense which distracts potential opponents from applying logical analysis to their world, so now THE EVIDENCE is all there!!

The SFA badly need higher calibre board members and, despite some generous assessments (from all sides), Celtic’s influence over the Association has been akin to pushing water up a marble staircase.  The only genuine solutions to Scottish football’s problems will be to the benefit of all clubs, not just the main income generator.  This is the challenge Peter Lawwell should set himself.  By delivering well-funded, competitive football for all, he will best look after the interests of Celtic.  Big changes all round are required.

I was accustomed today by a suggestion that Celtic were about to announce debts of over £30m after investing in some underperforming bonds!  Fortunately the story teller is listening to the wrong people and this is complete fantasy.  At least this nonsense keeps people from reading the accounts and asking by our board blow so much cash on amortisation each year instead of buying players.

Shout out to the newly launched Irish Voice newspaper, issue one of which is now out.  Focussed on “Bringing you all the news from the Irish in Scotland” it’s a really impressive read – and it’s free!  Check it out online here and look out for the paper copy.

    Man City have apparently bought a franchise that will allow them to participate in the MLA. Given our supporter base and potential to tap into that market in the USA surely Peter Lawwell should be looking into this. In terms of available franchises for the MLA I think Boston is up for grabs. Thoughts?

    Foxy, sounds good in theory but I would much rather Big Pete concentrated for the minute on the Celtic franchise based in Scotland!

  2. ....PFayr supports WeeOscar on

    The Scottish Govt seem obsessed with hassling football fans

     

     

     

    The Bristol derby on SS2 ….polis in riot gear everywhere ….fans invading the pitch

     

     

    Hells teeth they’d need another summit up here for that type of behaviour

    Such disrespect for the peepul !

  4. So big Peter has joined the SFA money trough lol

     

     

    Indeed he will stand up for Celtic and kick all those nasty Huns oot

     

    Not!!!

     

    It’s all about his bonus and massive inflated income He will not risk that to help us

     

    Remember. The ” worth waiting for ” lie. Or the ” every penny earned ” lie

    Their Brewster’s millionsesque spending to ensure their progression thro the lower leagues

     

     

    Suggests they’d learned nothing

     

     

    Losing £1m per month …they’ve learned nothing

     

     

    Quite frankly I’m delighted with their lack of ability to learn

    Aye, they really canny handle the questions asked can they, Timmy has got right up them, and unfortunatly for them, Timmy won’t walk away.

     

     

    Sites like CQN etc have been their downfall, although their own stupidity has had a helping hand >}

    One of the worst things Big Jock ever said imo, was to stick the ball in the net more than the opposition to render the referees an irrelevance, or words to that effect.

     

     

    It should never have been that way, it was, and that was his answer, cos he knew that there was no other way.

     

     

    I probably aged twice as fast as I should have the past 15 or so years, due to them and their cheating, I know it shouldn’t have bothered me, but it did.

     

     

    The money on offer as you say will show their hand, as has been seen, sort the referees, that takes away all their power.

    The SNP Government used the so-called Shame Game to introduce legislation that they thought would win them more votes by targeting a minority demographic.

     

     

    The police used the Shame Game to gain more budget – which they have used to target a minority demographic.

     

     

    COPFS have lost the historic data relating to the kind of sectarian offences that the minority demographic are most impacted by and therefore have no way of measuring the effect of the new legislation.

     

     

    Summit?

     

     

    Aye. There’s summit wrang somewhere.

    Everyone, apart from Td67’s phantom huns, will agree with that post 100%, why even Td67 himself.

     

    Corruption at the top has been rife for decades and masonic prints are everywhere.

    Problem is they won’t give up on their power.

     

     

    Little by little it’s being eroded, bit by bit they are losing their stranglehold, it will come one day, sadly I won’t be around to see it, my kids won’t either, but I have hope that my grandweans will, maybes around the time their grandweans are Celtic supporters .

    we`re on the same page , as they say nowadays. I am embarassed as to how much it used to hurt me. I have other more pressing priorities now and they take precedence, however I can forgive but will never forget.

     

    The great thing is to ask yourself , “where did it get them?” The answer is such sweet revenge and brings me no end of comfort. Off to bed now, happy that I never will be , and never have been outside of the Celtic family.

     

    Hail! Hail!

  12. one last comment….I am working down in Engurland and it appears that some guy has just told them all that the game is up in the EPL and that it`s all the fault of wealthy foreigners and it`s not fair `cos they want to be world champions all the time???

     

    Their blind arrogance and unwillingness to see the buck naked emperor is a perfect mirror image of the Orcs in the last 10 years.

     

    Shame…………heh,heh.

  13. NexGen series — Great idea.

     

    Apart from the afternoon kick-offs and the lack of a reserve stadium in the East End.

     

     

    Who wants to travel to Greenock / Livingston?

     

    And why 2pm — the time seems to have been chosen to keep people away.

     

     

    More evidence that PL would not know a growth agenda if it came up and bit him.

    Nice try, but, for the pun Green Ink Brigade (all capitalized) is a pun of both the green ink brigade (those who write angry letters to newspapers) AND the Green Brigade (our fans).

     

     

    For it to be a wholly innocent reference to the newspaper letter writers, you would need to believe that Roseanne Cunningham, our Minister for Community Safety, with a special remit to tackle “sectarianism” is completely unaware of the fan section which her special police chums have been discriminating against.

     

     

    Was this excuse put out on SNP e-mail?

    Livingston is 20 minutes from Edinburgh – so I’d be happy to travel there since my usual travel to see Celtic is much longer.

    How do you want to get to a game?

     

    Do you want someone to carry you there in a shawl?

     

     

    Lennoxtown for the training ground was bad enough.

     

    Now it is either Greenock or Livingston for the widely anticipated NexGen series.

     

     

    You have to ask why not Murray Park?

     

    It must be the only place in WCS likely to draw a smaller crowd.

  18. … so that’s it then, the Black n’ White Brasil despite being 2-1 up after SIX minutes, go out 6-2.

     

     

    Oh well, there’s always the North of Scotland Cup next year………
