Double time for Celtic

780

It is nonsense to talk about Hampden Hoodoos, Celtic’s five defeats there since Neil Lennon became manager have been a result of poor performances, not superstition (fighting the urge to mention two last minute penalty decisions).  Celtic were unquestionably the stronger team on four of those five occasions, arguably all five, but they have been tactically out-thought at the national stadium time after time.

We are vastly stronger than Dundee United but once the whistle goes tomorrow, unless we can match them for hunger, arrest the defensive lapses which have blighted us all season, and find the key to breakdown what will be a tight defence, there is no reason to believe the outcome will be any different than when we faced a weaker St Mirren.

Shortly before that St Mirren defeat I said we were not playing consistently to win the treble we were short odds for.  Consistency hasn’t improved much since, which is why you are hearing talk coming out of Lennoxtown about this being the biggest game of the season.

It’s double time….

  1. I fully expect this Commission to get to the bottom of all this. They will find links to Green and Whyte and lies made to gain a licence from SFA.

     

     

    They will volunteer to revoke their own licence and take Sevco to the lowest of the junior leagues.

     

     

    They will beg to be admitted and apologise to the people of Scotland for sullying part of the fabric of society.

     

     

    This white coat is tight and why do they spoon feed me. What does psychotically delusional mean???

    It would make for a good cup final spectacle, Hibs after that great fightback and the Celts going for the double, we must win tomorrow. A great test for our young lions.

     

    Hampdens gonnae be Green and White!

  3. FOLLOWING a meeting today, the board

     

    of The Rangers International Football

     

    Club PLC issued the following statement:

     

    “The Board has announced today it is to

     

    commission an independent examination

     

    and report in view of recent allegations in

     

    the media concerning the Chief Executive,

     

    Charles Green, the Commercial Director,

     

    Imran Ahmad, and their management of

     

    the Club.

     

    “The decision to commission the

     

    examination was taken unanimously by

     

    those in attendance at today’s meeting

     

    including non-executive and executive

     

    directors.

     

    “The independent report will be

     

    commissioned and completed as speedily

     

    as possible and presented directly to the

     

    non-executive directors of the company.

     

    “The Chief Executive will not be involved

     

    in the conduct of the examination. The

     

    Board wishes to make clear that is not

     

    prejudging any of the issues involved and

     

    that the object of this exercise is to clarify

     

    the situation to the satisfaction of

     

    shareholders, supporters, staff and Board

     

    members.

     

    “Instructions recently given to lawyers in

     

    England and Scotland with a view to

     

    taking legal action to challenge these

     

    recent allegations will form part of the

     

    independent examination.

     

    “Also at today’s meeting, the Chief

     

    Executive of the Club apologised

     

    unreservedly to Board members and the

     

    wider Rangers support for any offence

     

    caused by remarks he made in an

     

    interview last week regarding Imran

     

    Ahmad.

     

    “Mr. Green told the Board that in trying to

     

    make a point in the interview that, as

     

    Chief Executive, he would not

     

    countenance any form of prejudice

     

    towards employees or players at the Club,

     

    he had exercised poor judgement in the

     

    words he chose. He apologised.

     

    “The Board accepted the explanation that

     

    there had been no intention to cause

     

    offence and accepted the Chief

     

    Executive’s apology. The Board is

     

    satisfied that the Chief Executive did not

     

    act in a racist manner but reminded him

     

    of the importance of all office bearers at

     

    Rangers upholding the standards

     

    expected by the Club.

     

    “Mr. Green will deal with the pending

     

    S.F.A. charge on this matter on a

     

    personal basis. The Board wishes to re-

     

    iterate Rangers is a Club which is

     

    opposed to all forms of prejudice and has

     

    a long-established policy of working

     

    extensively in the community through a

     

    variety of programmes and initiatives to

     

    tackle issues such as racism and

     

    sectarianism.”

  4. Good afternoon CQN. Any bets the Independant Commission find no wrong doings over ole Ipox way?

  5. Another Hampden horror show will be difficult to take

     

     

    Our performances at Hampden during Lenny’s tenure have been unacceptable for a team of our ability and resources

     

     

    Better attitude and application required

    The Celts are here.. Great match at hampden today.. Poor crowd..

     

     

    Roll on tomorrow..

  7. 'crushed nuts?' 'Naw, Layringitis!' on

    Why bother with an independent commission if you’ve done nothing wrong?

  8. Aye P67 what about the Hampden hoodoo United have any time they play us

     

     

    This hoodoo thing is not unilateral

     

     

    Hoodoos are for sharing csc

  9. Have a feeling the independent commission may be about as impartial and truthful as the Warren Commission.

     

    Yet again the arrogance and stupidity of these people reaches new heights .

     

     

    I have a simple solution jail them all.

  10. re independent commission, are the SFA finally being investigated?

     

     

    They are the ones responsible for applying the Governance process, they are the shield that allowed this corruption to go on for over 11yrs.

    Im glad we got utd in the semi and if we make the final its hibs

    Green playing a blinder. This will enable charles to get the ST monies when he delays the outcome of any inquiry and / or gerrymanders the ‘independent’ commission set up by themselves ( hunbelievable ).

    SEVCO. a long established policy…to tackle issues .. Like sectarianism..

     

     

    Yes that’s why for over a century they discriminated against, and were allowed to, Roman Catholics..

     

     

    Some policy …

     

     

    The MSM will highlight these matters..

  15. I hear amateur propagandist Graham is up speaking on behalf of Sevco again on this evenings Sportsound Extra

  16. Repost

     

    Could anyone tell me how the bhuns setting up their own independent inquiry into themselves can in any way excuse the SFA from nailing the barstewards..This is an internal matter for Rangers and should have no bearing on assurances given by them to the SFA

    Also at today’s meeting, the Chief

     

    Executive of the Club apologised

     

    unreservedly to Board members and the

     

    wider Rangers support for any offence

     

    caused by remarks he made in an

     

    interview last week regarding Imran

     

    Ahmad

     

    =================

     

    Why didn’t chuckles apologise to the people who were the object of his offensive behaviour? Like a famous advocate, he’s not apologising for, or acknowledging the offensive effect of, his behaviour.

     

    He’s apologising for getting caught!!

  18. 'crushed nuts?' 'Naw, Layringitis!' on

    How does a hoodoo have an effect on two teams at the same time?

     

    Does sevco have an honesty hoodoo?

  19. Too often we start games at a pedestrian pace. Its as if “We know” we are the better team and sooner or later we expect our quality to show and we will then win the game. Hunger and desire is a great leveler and we have to at least match The Arabs in that department. I want Celtic to go out from the start and play with pace & purpose and impose our game on them. If we do that I’m sure we will win and keep the season buzzing right up to the last game.

  20. Thindimebhoy

     

     

    Why is this idiot Graham getting airtime …he adds nothing to reasoned debate and is simply a sevco cheerleader ….he is a study in subjectivity

  21. Tim Malone Will Tell on

    I suspect that even the Hun hordes aren’t stupid enough to be duped by this ???

     

     

    Still – there will be no excuse whatsoever for either plod or the SFA ignoring the real issue…

  22. “John Barnes claims credit for giving Shaun Maloney his debut as a 16-year-old at Celtic.”

     

    It’s a good thing he didn’t give our Shaun dietary advice.
