Hartson late mea cupla

827

I’m sure Ronny Deila is delighted to have the backing of John Harton, now he doesn’t need it.  John’s attachment to the club is not in doubt, nor should a new manager want unquestioning support from anyone, but some clubs reach a point when they become unmanageable.  Influential voices collaborate with perma-upset media and fans to expose shoots of recovery to a winter frost.

The mea culpa, when it arrives, is often too late.

Save us from the click bait that is suggesting Craig Gordon is a ‘target’ for some or other English club.  Derk Boerrigter is interesting Real Madrid, honest, they’ve been watching him with the Development Squad.

I’ve been waiting for weeks on someone to ask the question: if a club accepts money on the condition that the lender has the right to appoint two directors, in the event the club removes those directors, do you reckon that would be a breach of the terms of the loan?

I’d be extremely worried if a well-intentioned, but nonetheless, baying mob chased away the last independent director of my club.  Many Germans celebrated the Armistice, thinking a conclusion to hostilities had been agreed.  Months later they learned the terms left them bereft of land, defensive capabilities, capital equipment, authority and self-respect.  What seemed like an end to the trauma only set in motion far greater horrors.

Our good friends at Magners have offered two premium seat tickets for tomorrow’s game at Celtic Park.  To win, email me the name of the team we’re playing at celticquicknews@gmail.com

Competition closes at 5pm tonight.  If you would like to help build a school kitchen for 909 hungry kids for Mary’s Meals in Malawi while entering the competition, you can donate £1 here.  Thank you.

  1. Just voted on the Ronny Poll.

     

     

    Strangely there was no option for :

     

     

    > I have always supported Ronny and pleased he is proving me right. (Mostly because others were having a go and I like to stand up for the oppressed).

    ‘The two appointees of Mr Ashley (Derek Llambias and Barry leach) have ‘stubbornly’ refused to resign”

     

     

    and as a condition of his loan he’s entitled to two on the board :)

    I don’t want them back either,but i reserve my right of going to support my team.H

    Bada. HT,

     

     

    I know and understand that.

     

     

    I was being naughty, however, for the mischievous media, it sends out the opposite message to that of an empty stand.

    There’s only 1 Johnny Hartson !!!

     

    The man’s entitled to his opinion just like the rest of us he’s also entitled to change his opinion like the rest of us

     

    Ronny will be assessed at the end of the season on what he wins or doesn’t win

    Just a thought, I’m wondering that the hands up of John Hartson saying he got it wrong, would be anything like the CQNs hands up that Alfoe Noaks is not a HUN poll would turn out? Jist sayin like, cough cough.

    What does that actually mean – is it in code?

    Árd Macha – I was in a pub in Carlisle on the way back from the game on Sunday when in walks a fella wearing a shirt with your name emblazoned on the sleeves. Clearly a big fan of yours!!

     

    bournesouprecipe – popcorn indeed. They have recently been given new, “enhanced” contracts and Ashley can appoint two more to the board if Sevco use the other £5m (i’m presuming they have used it already)

     

    I wonder if Dave (The lying) King will regret his triumphalist victory speech in the coming weeks.

    Also, they need consumers. We should boycott those companies who don’t pay the living wage. Thank God, Celtic are now paying it, even if they won’t sign up to it.

     

     

    Are you sure they are paying the living wage to – everybody – who works for Celtic?

    STV

     

     

    Yep,how dare they be “Stubborn”and not resign before their cheques have cleared in the bank.

     

    Forgetting to mention that Ashley,as part of his “Deal”,had to have 2 representatives on the board.Does their sacking mean,his deal is now,null and void?.I am sure they will tell us.

    That’s a pity

    You are right that one of the comments made by Hartson was out of order and he has held his hands up for that now and admitted he was wrong.

     

     

    That was an exceptional comment from Hartson. I generally find him to be honest and balanced in what he says. That comment was not typical of him or his finest moment but it takes a big man to say publicly that they got it wrong.

  12. SFTB:

     

     

    The Celtic that I watched at the start of the season was the worst ‘headless chicken’ Celtic team that I have ever seen – in my lifetime – . I stand by that assesment and opinion.Present day results do not negate, nor airbrush, the dross that we witnessed back in June and July.

     

     

    Thank God, and Ronny, and the players, for the progress and I’ll reserve my opinion of the man’s capabilities until post the CL qualifiers next season.

  13. What journalist will be the first to ask DK what kind of war chest will the manager get?

  14. The other £5 million loan from Ashley will have undoubtedly been used for the wages/keeping the lights on.It did not need to be announced to AIM as it had already been agreed.

     

    Luvin it.C”mon the King boy.

    Don’t know for sure, mate. At the AGM, the board said they were going to pay direct employees the LW. I have taken them at their word.

    While I’m at it, Tony – what actually is a ‘hun’?

     

     

    Is it some who takes a different view of the world than you and your mates?

     

     

    Or does bandying the word from your ‘lofty’ position on (you think) the moral high ground, make you ‘one of the boys’?

  17. the glorious balance sheet,

     

     

    I agree.I hated being upset at him,if you know what I mean.But as I posted earlier,well done for his recent words.

    Do you recall when Ronny took over the team.?

    bournesouprecipe – “What could possibly go wrong? (⊙_⊙)”

     

     

    From our point of view, not a lot i think.

    We get Bobby Madden for League Cup Final.

    I don’t get it why the HUNS think this is a walk in the park, and it’s all over, I’m missing something right?

     

     

    A wee bit previous TD.Their “Walk in the park”is not until July.

    Agree with you on that, may even extend it to December, except for the odd ocassional game.

    I read yesterday you were talking of the Mountains of Mourne and the derivation of mountain names taken from local language.If you have any links to any programmes i would appreciate that as i recall veiwing a programme on TG4(?) when i was last over.

     

     

    I am interested in this topic,there is a wonderful range of programmes here in Scotland on BBC Alba called Tir is Teanga which documents the influence of the viking(norse),pict,gael,lowland scots,old breton,(welsh) on the naming of our hills here in Scotland.

     

    The link is here.

    good to watch once you come back of the hill :-)

  24. Alfie Alfie alfie, cam doon son, it was my observation that many many, when came in here called you a HUN, I notce that not to many do now, so my point being that they took a knee jerk reaction to your posts, as some often do, as you have done with mine, now you ask me what a Hun is! A hun is a DOB , bluenose, knuckle dragger, Humphy bassa, ugly bassa, inbred person, anti all Catholic and glasgow celtic, a royalist, a mason, many many more, but you asked, so there happy ?
