Don’t mention the (boardroom) war


With financial projections which provide entertaining reading, Rangers International promoted director, Walter Smith, to the position of chairman.  Smith immediately proclaimed, “Unity among the directors is vital”, although he was not asked about the forthcoming EGM where fellow directors Malcolm Murray and Chris Morgan face dismissal, while a third director, Charles Green, suggested he was going to resign by today, but has not got around to filling out the form yet (does this guy have ‘form’ when it comes to filling Companies House forms?)…..

They don’t do unity very well.

The only show in town is season ticket sales; for all clubs.  Maybe Celtic should appoint Martin O’Neill to the board for a few weeks to allow the newspapers to provide some bluster for those who more convinced by headlines and sound-bites than strategy?  Perhaps not.  Let’s stick to plan.

Lisbon Lion in Ayrshire, send reinforcements!

Willie Wallace will be at Waterstons in Ayr from 1-3pm this afternoon, get along (with camera) if you can.

Tomorrow Willie will be at the Celtic Superstore from 12-2pm before going to the Celtic Shop, Clydebank, from 3.30-5.30pm.  Get out and meet the man.

Great to meet so many people at Waterstons, Stirling, last night. The store sold out of Willie’s autobiography. There was actually a queue of people waiting to enter the store at one point.

Just a few days left on the auction for the signed Messi strip, a magnificent piece of football memorabilia. Keep an eye on it here.

  1. A wee well versed Bigot in my work tried to say that David Murray would have bought Celtic rather than Celtic going out of business.



    He said it without a hint of irony.



    They twist things to suit the agenda……



    the microcosm, the macrocosm.



    What a Wonderful Story Celtic is, we Win, We Lose, We LOVE….



    Simplification, it disnae take a rocket scientist to realise this.

    Loud and Clear in st Vincent St stock Rega and couldn’t be more helpful.


    Only thing is you might end up spending more than you plan!






    I bought a Rega Planar 2 in 1983. Instill have the same turntable which is functioning perfectly after all this time and numerous house moves. I bought it with all the proceeds from a summer job as an auxiliary in Coathill Hospital. Sure it was about £300. That’s a lot of old bums to wipe.



    Having typed that I’ve just realized I’ve had it 30 years. Wow.

  3. What entertaining accounts is that Paul?



    The ones Charlotte uploaded or the more sobering projections that I uploaded that even Rangers supporters think are pretty realistic. The ones that dip their toes in the red by end of next season and take a full plunge into the red pool the season after.



    Any idea which ones the SFS believe?

    Eldest daughter delighted with her birthday present so many thanks for the prompt delivery.



    She said “he doesn’t sound like a Celtic player”



    Youthyesterdayyouthtodayyouthtomorrow – some things never change!



    Apologies Willie – if your lurking!

    No, Kosecki will stay with us, unless the club gets very good offer. He got two offers from Spanish clubs again but I expect the offers to be rejected. We sell one player each transfer window. We already sold Central Back for 2 200 000 euros.






    Last games coming Sunday.

    Apricale @ 1256,



    I heard David Ginola on talksport this morning say that the other french clubs (led by Lyon’s chairman) have either asked, or it has been agreed, that Monaco will pay a levy of some €200million to the French league as a sort of tax, so they dont have an “unfair advantage” (hmmm now where have i heard that phrase before esp with regards to payments to footballers???).



    Additionally he, Ginola, said that there is almost an unwritten rule that prevents players from Atletico signing for Real and vice versa and do not be surprised to see a certain ex-Atletico player now about to be at Monaco, sign for Real either during January window or next summer latest!



    Tres Interessant? Peut-etre…..or merely merde??

    Ah. Must be your moniker, I thought you were in London.



    I was about to recommend a good place to go. They tend to suggest equipment that matches what you already have.



    But the ole Riga turntable is generally considered to be among the best.

  13. Thanks Zbyszek:-)



    Between Lewandowski, and to a lesser extent Rudnovs, some very good players have come out of the Polish league recently.



    Hopefully celtic can find another rough diamond in there:-)

    it would be a sea trout


    they are great for sushi i.e. as a nigiri topping

    In the game that Legia played against Lech two weeks back, Kosecki made three yellow and one red card for Lech players. He also made penalty that was changed for 1:0 for Legia.


    The game was worth earlier Champions title for Legia.

    Is “Walter Smith” a pseudonym for “Rangers Legned Walter Smith”, who is mentioned on every news report I’ve heard today.



    We should be clear, after all we wouldn’t want the rangers fans to be duped by the old switcheroo, and get Rangers Legned Scotland, when they actually want Rangers Legned 5088.



    I’m wonderring if Walter Smith International is really pulling the strings though.



    Good to hear though that the old MSM are folling into line and peddling the Legned news to sell the tickets.

    The whole situation is getting silly now …….. the corrupt cover-up is palpable / so obvious……. It will not end well for them, though…….. !!!!

  19. !!Bada Bing!! @ 13:25,



    Too true – Although there is a touch of desperation about Chairman Walter’s latest fling and you hope those days are gone.



    Then you read about their new intake of signed-up trialists makes you hark back to Cadete and Fergus and think “One rule for us…..”



    Hail! Hail!

  20. You know you’re deep in it when the only card you have left to play is the Legned Myth card…



    Any word from Mr Regan yet on the internal investigation(hahaha) ??



    C’mon Stewart your chance to be a Mahn!!

    Paul, you’re wrong, all is well with Sevco, Leggo tells us today, I guess he wrote this while listening to the stirring strains of Rule Brittania while memories of the infamous Hugie Green, flag waving, jingoistic televised speech brough a tear to his eye:






    Apart from it being a very poor article oul Leggo seems to have his analogies a wee bit mixed up. Now wasn’t D-Day an allied victory which marked the beginning of the end of bad guys just a wee bit like the combined forces of Scottish football supporters defeating the Zombies resurection plans? And the battle of the Bulge – yup Zombie FCs last stand, the last bluster of a doomed regime and they are currently having theirs arses booted but are deluisonla enough to believe they are winning . And least we forget it was a son of the Emerald Isle that delivered the immortal reply at Bastogne when asked to surrender by the Hun “Nuts”

    Hunners a fun to come…





    Am I alone in thinking Smith told Farry to move heaven and earth to find anomalies in the paperwork for Jorge’s transfer?



    Doubt it.



    The Cadete transfer was a great bit of business by the club-credit to Davie Hay,I believe-and brought us a fantastic striker though maybe a troubled man.



    It was unusual though,as he had bought himself out of his contract,virtually unheard of at the time.



    Easy meat for a bureaucrat like Farry.



    He reckoned….

    “Unity among the directors is vital.we must all be on the same page as often


    as possible”



    Step aside Confucius there’s a new/old kid on the block.

  25. Zbyszek ,



    So what you’re saying is that Kosecki is good enough….but being a Legia fan you don’t want to lose him. That’s perfectly understandable!!



    I find it strange that Celtic are linked with Tonev though and not Kosecki when Kosecki is the better player. Maybe it’s because he would cost more or maybe because he plays on the right (in James Forrests position) while Tonev plays mainly on the left.

  26. ……………..some of the peeesh in the herlad goes even beyond hagiography and ventures into homoeroticism…….

  27. So people realise, they have a lot riding on Walter. A lot mair than Anyone can really comprehend, unless they ur Godot throwing a spanner in His Work. ;)
