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.
