Football protocols above and beyond NHS

298

In the first and almost certainly only time I’ll ever quote Motherwell manager, Stephen Robinson, the Motherwell manager said, “”The protocols [football has]adhered to are above and beyond anything else, it’s above the NHS frontline staff.

“And football can give respite from the mental health side of things. In a world where things are complicated and strange, football can be that relieving factor, that little bit of joy and happiness.”

But holding test events?  Testing is anathema to governments in Edinburgh and London, where superstition is the route followed by our governing twins.  Instead, they open the pubs for fans to congregate indoors, untested and without any chance of proper supervision.  There is no scientific evidence for this preference, in fact, this choice goes against all evidence.  Football is the most prepared industry in the country to allow staff and public to participate, as Stephen Robinson said, more so than the NHS, but your governments chose differently.

  1. Amazed at the absence of Ajeti from selections.

     

     

    He’s a goalscorer and we need goals.

     

     

    Play your best players in their best positions.

     

     

    James, Callum, Moi, Albian, Ryan, Ollie and Odsonne give us forward penetration and a chance to score.

     

     

    Play them all.

    The BBC selector has Ajeti as a keeper option😀

    Well you never know with Neil Lennon on a European night!

     

     

    I’d go with your team but I’d say it’s pretty certain Brown starts ahead of Ntcham. I think all the talk of rotating Brown will probably lead him to sitting out the St Johnstone game before we play the zombies. He will likely play tonight and against Hibs.

    I’ve made no such promise of instant nirvana.

     

    And for unionists to define success for independence are having to deliver thus, is disingenuous.

     

     

    I’ll leave it there. Aware that most people want fitba, not politics.

    ……………

     

    Spot On mate.

     

    I have been scrolling by certain Posters who appear to have an opinion on EVERYTHING, whether its Covid, Celtic, Politics…and including Chumps who try to tell ME how to spend my days and money, just because I enjoy a Bet on Fitba and the Horses most days. I am lucky, cos I can JUDGE for myself what I can afford to lose…cos Im all the man Im gonna be.

     

    I had Two ex wives who tried to tell me what to do, including when I should or shouldnt go to the Pub..they couldnt tame me…thats why I wont listen to some Chump on here or anywhere else telling ME how to live.

     

    Ive been a Bachelor Bhoy for just over 10 years now…Ive never been happier…cos I am not hurting anyone else, or making anyone else unhappy….and that suits me fine !

     

    LOL

    I know you post in secret and no one seems to have met you or spoken to you other than through CQN.

     

    You have worked hard to develop the wise cracking, put down merchant persona and that seems to be the modus operandi at the expense of ever actually engaging in debate.

     

     

    So I have no idea whether you are constantly on the wind up or actually just embarrassed about being Scottish or maybe a racist who just hates everything Scottish. Either way I can’t take you seriously.

     

     

    I have an antipathy to the anonymous nature of modern internet culture some people get a hard on from it.

  6. Broonie will be getting an enforced domestic rest soon, given how many bookings he’s collecting.

     

     

    I’m sure the MIBs will have an eye on that ref the forthcoming Glasgow derby

     

     

    HH jg

  7. While I can sometimes be unhappy with Neil team selection etc, I try NOT to Post about it. He is paid handsomely to do his Job, and I am sure he is man enough to stand or fall by his decisions.

     

    Let the man do his Job, I say.

     

     

    i would love Neil to play 2 or even 3 up front in every game, but that aint gonna happen . I am almost sure that we have scored 3/4 or 5 goals even when we have had only ONE up front…I could be wrong of course ?

     

    HH

    I’m a huge Broonie fan and regardless of what happens this season he will be a legend in my eyes.

     

    However I do agree he is picking up stupid soft bookings this season.

     

    I know there is a train of thought on here that he is done, I’m not of that opinion but his lack of form so far this season is worrying.

     

     

    I’d give young Mr Turnbull a try in domestic matches the problem is I don’t believe he is a defensive midfielder.

  9. If Celtic is held responsible for the actions of its employees then subsequently the Scottish government should be held responsible for the actions of Cathrine Calderwood who as we all know was the government’s Chief Medical Officer who unbelievably broke her own rules.

  10. TIMMY7_NOTED on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2020 11:16 AM

     

     

     

    That’s the stupidity and fanaticism of the Scot nat summed up quite nicely.

     

     

    If you don’t support their reactionary and dim witted politics you’re either a racist or a self hating Scot.

     

     

    It’s not dissimilar to how hard line Zionists react to non Zionist Jews.

    You just beat me to it, as I was about to Post/Ask ” How many Yellow Cards does Scott have til now” ?

     

    Neil may leave him out of a game or two… if Broony is on the edge of a suspension before we play the Mankie huns ?

    Some of you jokes are rubbish though.

     

     

    ( And I’m only saying what everyone else is thinking).

  14. Big Georges Fan Club - Hail, Hail, Wee Oscar on

    We’ll win tonight – FACT!!!

     

     

    HH

     

    BGFC

     

     

    Big Wavy – the “tombola” line was good :-))

  15. Big Jimmy,

     

     

    I hope to god Broonie is missing the Hun game. A liability in there now. Legend indeed but them’s the facts mate.

     

     

    HH

  16. Now, as to tonight. The mood music was that Elyounoussi would be back. If true I suspect we may be going 4:4:2 or back to 4:2:3:1 tonight in a must not lose game.

     

     

    Lenny may be recognising that we have not yet drilled enough safety into our 3 at the back (thought it could be much improved if Scott Brown stayed in our defensive half for most of the game).

     

     

    We should be capable of avoiding defeat but we do not look like we are oven-cooked enough to rely on defensive fortitude to see us through.

     

     

    I am happy enough to see us go to a more secure back 4 of Elhamed Duffy Ajer & Taylor but I think this will see Forrest & Elyounoussi on the wings of the front 3 to support Edouard (if it is a 4:2:3:1). That would mean losing one of the Brown, Christie, Ntcham & McGregor quartet.

     

     

    If we go 4:4:2- we bring Ajeti in to share the load and we lose either Forrest or ELyounoussi along with one of the midfield quartet.

     

     

    Views?

     

     

    Question is- S

  17. “Some people think football is a matter of life and death. ”

     

     

    Not quite. But it is a massive part of life for many people and at this moment in time it is an unbelievable focus and moral booster.

     

     

    COYBIG.

  18. Now we have a bleedin’ mind reader to add to the other skills and expertise some people have on here.

     

     

    Gies a brek ffs!

  19. James Ganf

     

     

    “I’ve made no such promise of instant nirvana. ”

     

     

     

    Nor were you accused of doing so.

     

     

    The accusation was one of crossing the road to take offence at suggestions we will face a lengthy period of further financail austerity. A triple hit- adding to the curent Brexit austeity and the Covid austerity with a further round of divorce payments.

     

     

    Do you agree that the message of Independence should be more economically honest? Why is it not?

     

     

    You can choose to answer these (or not) on a non match day.

     

     

    Now 4:4:2 or 4:2:3:1 or 3:5:2 for Riga?

  20. I don’t think Broon is completely finished like some. Even when he has a decent game he has his boo bhoys coming after him.

     

     

    I give him pass marks for every game this season apart from the last two. I felt the game passed him by a bit against Livingston & St Mirren. (I’d include the Killie game as well but I think it’s fair to say we were rotten to a man)

     

     

    Maybe he needs a rest.

    My opinion, note opinion, of you is based upon your posting style and content.

     

    Nothing whatsoever to do with my politics which you know nothing about.

     

    Is this helping you?

     

    Its very strange for me, for all I know your a bot.

  22. SFTB

     

     

    Briefly, my gripe (which I suspect you’ll share) is the dearth of constructive and realistic discussions of this issue.

     

     

    HH jg

  23. BOURNE – your team selection both makes sense and has a realistic likelihood. Proper line-up in yet ?

     

     

    I only hope we don’t start so slow that Riga Mortis quickly sets in.

     

    There’s tomorrow headline if we get stiffed by the Latvians – redtop subbies will be all over that.

     

    Or, if we pick the lock of a packed defence: ‘Riga Mortice’.

     

    Coat. Get. Ma. Will. HH

  24. BIG JIMMY on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2020 7:59 AM

    H.H.

  26. ERNIE LYNCH on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2020 9:35 AM

     

    At what stage in the history of Celtic did it become de rigeuer for the Clubs’s Scottish fans to support Scottish nationalism?

     

     

    There must be generations of fans spinning in their graves or at least shaking their heads in bemusement at the assumption.

     

     

    at what stage was it Labour voting mass? ever? maybe socialist but never ever an arse licker of any union like your good self

     

    maybe you are correct and the nodding donkeys who drone like would vote labour trustfully,without even knowin who or what they were voting for.

     

    then along came the war criminal and ruperts right hand…..man

     

    more tory than the tories

     

    who’d a thunk it?

     

     

    stay within all tory spending limits

     

     

    not one repeal of any anti labour legislation

     

     

    pfi

     

     

    all sanctioned by rupert

     

     

    yeh the people of pollok are all middle class now as the confused war criminal would say

     

     

    not even mentioned bank bailout how very socialist
