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.

    The irony of the objections of the Permaragers appointment of PL to the SFA board is that the very thing they perceive as objectionable (ie that Peter Lawwell will , in their view, use the SFA to promote the interests of one club to the detriment of all the others and one in particular) is , of course, precisely what has kept them in a position of false “pre-eminence” for decades upon decades.

     

     

    They do see the irony of that , don’t they..?

  3. As a recent Peter Lawell critic, well done Pete on reaching the board of the SFA.

     

     

    I have no doubts that Pete will put better procedures in place, that the there will eb better balance within the SFA and hopefully some of the old hun dinosaurs will become extinct.

     

     

    Evolution not Revolution as my old da used to say.

    Re “Irish Voice” there is an excellent article/obit in “Irish World” in honour and remembrance of Seamus Heaney.

     

     

    I meant to mention it yesterday for the benefit of those who have access to it.

  6. Playing the home leg of qualifying matches anywhere but CP takes away part of the home advantage.

  7. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    ernie lynch. You are correct and giving away part of the home advantage could prove very costly.However,strange as it seems to us supporters we have seen Celtic gamble on qualifying this season for the CL proper and it looks like we are prepared to do it again next season.H.H.

    Bobby M,

     

     

    Another thing.

     

     

    If They get to the Ramsden final, guess where that will be played?

    Someone on earlier said we should play the home leg of the CL qualifiers at Old Trafford.

     

     

    This is an excellent idea.

     

     

    It means if we got through and drew AC Milan again one of us can get a free shot at lamping their goalie as we have already taken the punishment.

    Yer probably in a Wine Bar,old bean…

     

     

    Try asking in an Anglicised accent.

     

     

    Then pay with a credit card.

     

     

    Bobby, am ur in a wine bar. It’s a pint of wine I’m waiting on.

     

     

     

    Made me laugh, many moons ago we used to drink in the Ragamuffin on Great Western Road, its close proximity to the student accommodation where there were many parties was key. We used to drink pints of wine with Stella chasers!

     

     

    Bar staff were incredulous, in the early eighties, many a sair heed!

  13. BOBBY MURDOCH'S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS forza Oscar and Mackenzie on

    Final of The Ramsdens Cup?

     

     

    Dunno,but it would be ironic if it was played at a ground which was in hock to a bunch of shysters.

     

     

    Such as Ibrox.

     

     

    I certainly wouldnae want their filth anywhere near Celtic Park. And I would be delighted if the club told the SFA that they will never be welcome,nor receive tickets,at any time in the future.

     

     

    Have they coughed for their last episode of trashing our ground?

     

     

    Naw?

  15. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Philbhoy. If a player is a free agent with no club we would be entitled to offer him a contract.I dont think it will happen though I am pretty confident we wont see any further signings until January and maybe not even then I think it will depend if we are still in Europe after Christmas. H.H.

    As we all know no ground has the reputation of CP.

     

     

    Just ask wee Messi…

  17. Philbhoy - Bring it on!!!! on

    There must be a clever Tim somewhere who can invent/design a blow up stadium that seats 60,000 people.

     

     

    Just think, portable, you could play almost anywhere, but most importantly you could hire it out for the rest of the week as a giant bouncy castle.

     

     

    Think of the money we could make, Peter.

     

     

    We widney need to worry about CL money then.

  18. Do you think me and my mates can fob of the kids with

     

     

    “Edinburgh is an away game in europe”

     

     

    We always take kids everywhere most recently Dublin but had thought about a wee trip to

     

    the dam.

     

     

    I dont think kids would appreciate the fine art and local special baking

     

     

    So thinking “Big ones go this year(fact finding) we take wee ones on away trip next year”.

  19. Philbhoy – Bring it on!!!!

    It worked for the Quidditch World Cup Final in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

     

     

    And Ireland won that, so the UFH must have been involved somewhere along the value chain.

  20. An inflatable 60,000 seater stadium is a great idea.

     

     

    At least the seats would be comfortable.

    The one thing l have Never Ever understood since l came on the Internet/CQN..

     

     

    Is..

     

     

    How both sets of the Old Firm hate the SFA/Keevins/McNee/Spiers/TheBBC/STV/DailyRecord..EtcEtc..

     

     

    For the Exact same Reasons..

     

     

    Biased towards their Club..Agenda..Hun/Tim Hater Etc Etc..

     

     

    Some of the Arguments You could Just copy and Paste and change the Club..

     

     

    Surely they All cant be Right/Wrong..

     

     

    Or do People think they are 100% Correct and the Other side of the Old Firm are Numbnuts..

     

     

    I Mean the SFA Cannot be Rangers Lovers/Celtic haters AND Celtic Lovers/Rangers haters..

     

     

    Ditto..Every Journalist/Commentator/TV Station/Newspaper..

     

     

    And btw..I Am Not sitting on the Fence here..I am Falling off it Laughing..

  22. If it is just the Main Stand getting done up for CW,can we not just play with the other 3 stands open?

    FFS,surprised you can remember it!

     

     

    I have always been fortunate in that regard.

     

     

    Never a shortage of people willing to fill me in on previous excesses.

     

     

    Mind,they usually told my Mum first….

  24. The Honest Mistake loves being first on

    If only we had a hover pitch, we could pipe the air from the hover pitch to the inflatable stadium.

     

    How you laughed at sdm.

     

    You all laughed at christopher Columbus too. Laughing bassas.

  25. Bawsman

     

     

     

    I think it is a bit arrogant of this kind of talk before the league is won and a decision has to be made.

     

     

    Yeah let’s leave it to the last minute , like signing a striker… That didn’t cause any grief….

  26. The Battered Bunnet on

    An inflatable stadium?

     

     

    All it would take is one prick to let the whole place down.

  27. !!Bada Bing!!

     

     

    Pitch damage – seems we will relay the pitch after the Opening Ceremony but it wont be ready in time for the CLQs.

  28. the long wait is over on

    Yorkbhoy/ Bawsman

     

     

    If we don’t win the league there won’t be a Celtic Park to worry about.

     

     

    The torch and pirchfork crowd will have razed it to the ground…

    ——————————-

     

     

    Isn’t that what happened at Rangers?

     

     

    I’m sure I read somewhere that it was all that naughty Craig Whyte’s fault and that no one else – no one else, ye hear? – was to blame.

  30. Paul67

     

     

    Interesting development on PL.

     

     

    Or

     

     

    If you cannot beat them boss them.

     

     

    My main concern has been about an uncorrected, unprofessional and unaccountable SFA being free to make decisions that have greatly undermined the integrity of our game with Celtic the first in the queue of clubs harmed – but not the only club.

     

     

    Peter Lawell at least understands the issues and has had plenty of messages on what needs to be done, the following for example

     

     

    http://celticunderground.net/sfa-reform-one-down-three-to-go/

     

     

    But a start would be the appointment of an SLO equivalent to the SFA.

     

     

    If it’s good enough for UEFA to insist on for clubs then why not for national associations?

  31. So we cannae play next years Qualifiers because the pitch will get damaged at the opening ceremony of the CG , surely somebody out there must have a copy of the plans for SDM magic floating pitch , problem solved.

  32. How long before someone blames the SNP for Celtic having to move to Edinburgh for a game due to the Commonwealth games?
