Getting ready for Rosenborg, Takeover Panel blues

213

If results go to form, we will play Rosenborg within one or two days before the anniversary of our matches against them last season.  A year ago we were a tad underprepared; Rosenborg got a credible draw at Celtic Park, a game which could have ended in a significantly more onerous result for Celtic.

Seven days later Celtic were much sharper as they won in Norway.  Rosenborg were our biggest test in last season’s qualifiers.  They went on to eliminate Ajax from the Europa League, the Dutch having competed in the Europa final only three months earlier.

The challenge for Brendan Rodgers is to get his players up to speed a week earlier.

The rise of Europe at the World Cup remains on track.  European teams have won nine, drawn two and lost two of their games so far, with two of the Continent’s better teams, Portugal and Spain, in action today.

I expected the Takeover Panel to allow Dave King time over the summer to comply with the lapsed Court of Session 26 April deadline to make an offer for shares not held by his concert party, but clearly yesterday’s Court of Session action proved otherwise.

Many of the consequences of this, such as cold-shouldering, or legal consequences, are for the medium term.  The immediate issue is that it is clear King has been unable to lodge funds to comply with the court in three months.  As far as fulfilling this legal obligation is concerned, the man is as his QC claimed, “penniless”.

Keep in mind, Newco’s soft loans are repayable within the next 10 days.  Some may be renewed, but have been called in.  There will be enough season ticket money available to make these repayments, but that will leave a gap later in the season.  If only Dave could use some of that season ticket money elsewhere.

  2. We could do worse than look at some of them Iranian defenders, they did ok against top quality.

     

    Amazed at how you can flaunt all the ffp rules and still get a licence to play in europe, the cabal fair has a long reach.

    I think the Stuarts got a ‘bad press’ in Scotland and when the lineage was broken – well you know the rest.

     

     

    King Alexander fell off his horse and was killed near Aberdour after ‘a night of merry making’ in Edinburgh and it was the Dave King’s that took over.

  10. Exiled Tim,so true,I have stated to day a couple of post, regarding all things Celtic,just to see the reaction,from Celtic Supporters,it’s been very quiet on here for last few days,have a lot of them chucked it,and yes I’m Timbhoy, hopefully in the near future,I can respond to few comments,just to get the blog up and running,and personally it doesn’t bother me if some fans on here get nasty to me ,and I have over the yrs ,fans telling me .I am a Hun,I should be in a nut house,but you know what ,I’ve came to the conclusion, after all it’s people’s opinions,and a bit of banter.

    I remember the first time you posted on here, you were indeed called a hun and the rest, you have never come across as a hun to me, and it didn’t cross my mind for a spilt second that you should be in a nuthouse either, if the truth be known I look forward to your posts, you have never wavered from wanting the facilities in the main stand improved, fair play to ye for that.

     

    Keep posting as whomever takes your fancy :-)

  13. CRC: heading off to Costa Del Sol tomorrow so won’t be able to meet up in Dublin ( due to my prolonged, but well deserved, holidays) until late August. Best of luck with your job and will be in touch to meet up late August/early September.

    From earlier re the glibster, couldn’t have put it any better masel, he is sticking the finger up at them cos he knows there will be no consequences, he has done them up like a kipper, he knows the media in scotland will protect him, they have much to answer for but they also have managed to kill their golden goose.

    Almore, thank you

     

     

    Not sure about well deserved but enjoy your hols in Costa Del Sol and I will catch up with you later in the year.

     

     

    Always preferred WITS anyway :-)

  16. Ha, I see the huns are selling season books again cos they didn’t actually sell out, oh well, just another porkie then, just to top it off, they are selling season tickets for the Broomloan……..but games against us are NOT included, now I wonder why that would be ????

     

    Lying fuds, why the ef don’t they do the decent thing and feckin die properly.

  17. TET I had a wee look in. They have 21 tickets left for sale so it is pretty much a sellout.

    LG 30 seconds on SSN, re the obvious Sevco questions’i’m not interested, it’s what we do here’

     

    Broony done same the other day, good to see the hun questions are getting short shtift

    Heard Broony say BR sat them down on Monday and gave them the low down. You can bet they were all warned that the SMSM will be all over them looking for quotes.

  20. TET I saw that and it spurred me on to have a look. As of 20:30 tonight that was the up to date position.

     

     

    I will look again tomorrow to see if it’s still the same.

    D17- snub every Sevco question, only time is the week we are playing them, our press guy, Gerry Thingamy, should tell them the script before they try and hang onto our coat tails at every press conference HH

    A huge thank you bhoys. I am the proud owner of a Mornington The Social Celts Shirt, two caps and badges and a beautiful letter from P, which I will reply to. The folk he knows from Clydebank are all known to me. Magic to read a letter from the other side of the world and yet seem so close to home. Magic prizes bhoys thanks again.

    Nah, i think BR is going to let this Stevie G love in with the SMSM go into overdrive and by the time the League kicks off they will have as good as won it. Meanwhile he will have our boys fired up to do their talking on the pitch.
