Kazaks disparage Neil, Celtic preparations. Charlotte Fakes


Shakhter seem convinced they will eliminate Celtic tomorrow.  Their friendly journalist explained why to Kazak readers today:

“Despite winning comfortably enough in the capital last Tuesday, Celtic remain confident of overturning the deficit in Albion (sic).  Getting to the group stage is not a forbidden dream for Shakhter, it is their right as a result of recent domestic success.

“Shakhter have the mining spirit of resilience, respect and strict discipline.  Glasgow also has a long mining tradition but Margaret Thatcher closed the mines in the 1980s (!).  Since then, Glasgow people lost their previous spirit once and for all.

“Neil Lennon was unprepared and the Celtic defenders unable to do the job in Astana.  Just like BATE Borisov, they think they will overcome the result in the second leg.  Just like BATE they are still unprepared for Shakhter.

“Albion’s (sic) best managers are from Glasgow, Busby, Ferguson, Stein, Shankley, Dalglish, Moyes, but the current Celtic leadership chose a man from Ireland, Neil Lennon, who is permanently under fire from fans of the “Celts”.

“Celtic have an epidemic of injuries.  Stokes, Commons, Forrest, Boerrigter, Kayal and Samaras.

“The referee is from Norway.  Scandinavians appreciate a tough fight.  The game is a very sensitive, contact, martial arts sport.  Svein Moen will understand.

“Before the game in Astana Neil Lennon said Shakhter play a very British style.  Why wasn’t he able to find an antidote to this?  Maybe he got Shakhter completely wrong.

“Karagandy’s three central defenders are impenetrable.  They close down space and do not interfere with each other.

“The “Catholics” refuse to acknowledge that Shakhter did not miss a ball against them in the first leg.  They think that because they can from 0-2 down against Inverness they can do the same against Shakhter.  This is unacceptable.  It will seem more absurd if the Miners open their account in Glasgow.

“In defeating BATE, Shakhter have already eliminated a higher seed than Celtic.”

Leave nothing in the dressing room, Celtic.

Charlotte Fakes

When I started Celtic Quick News in 2004 I had neither contacts nor inside information.  I started writing about the accounts, which was hugely consequential but, at the time, largely ignored public information.  Soon after the blog gained some momentum this changed.  People would come to me with information and views which were used to direct articles.

It only took a matter of weeks to go from zero contacts to having a network of people feeding into the blog.

I have no idea how Charlotte Fakes acquired some of her early information but, with doubts over the matter, it is understandable that the media was hesitant at touching it under the shadow of Leveson.

The Charlotte Fakes story has moved on, recent revelations have nothing whatsoever to do with Mr Whyte’s mailbox.  We are now in the territory of cast iron whistle-blower information.  She has her own network of people feeding legally acquired information, which the whistle-blower believes is in the public interest to reveal.

Some people in the game have had their snouts in the trough for so many decades a reservoir of resentment has built up against them among those who were once collaborators but are now cast aside.  You are reading the fruits of this on Charlotte Fakes.

The only question is, while the rest of the world has a new-found appreciation of the value of whistle-blowers, are ‘all the president’s men’ still prepared to look the other way in Scotland?

    So good to have you back..



    Your clarity of thought and expression has been sorely missed.



    Perhaps if you had been in attendance over the last few months, the blog would not have degenerated to the levels to which it has sunk.



    The Voice of Reason…….though I don’t always agree with you!

  3. Afternoon All,



    It’s been said before…



    Celtic, on their day, can beat anyone at home.



    It’s getting closer…



    Mon the Hoops!

    Wonderful quote from Khazakstan’s very ain Borat Keevins-



    ” They close down space and do not interfere with each other.”



    Is that a Putin-style homophobia reference? Did he just call Efe Ambrose gay?

    Not sure if it’s due to being “prepared” to look the other way.



    I think it more likely the schmoozing over the years has placed a lot of journos in a position where they have to toe the line or risk their own dirty linen being publicly aired.



    Hell mend ’em,of course. But Scottish journalism doesn’t have an investigative arm digging the dirt for fear of others doing the dirty on them’



    IMO,of course.

    Aye,do you think Charles will cough up my winnings?

  7. Having read that header twice I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d most probably understand it better under the influence of strong alcohol :-)

    Its nice to see Shakatar are confident about tomorrow night but as they say Pride often comes before a fall.Under fire Neil Lennon and the huge Catholic support will be on the same page tomorrow night and looking forward to the fight may the best team win. H.H.

    Re Sutton-I used to watch the Celtic games in The Green Man on thesis street. That was some pub,never a dull moment(!)



    It was then turned into O’Neills and all the regulars were barred!



    Enjoy The Bear. Not been in it since about 92. Used to go to a nice wee Irish pub in Brixton. Left then first left from the tube station,about fifty yards up.



    And The Telegraph was alright too. Although some minor errors of judgement also led me to places where I was slightly less welcome….

    Livi I again agree with a lot of what you say. However our scouting for goalscorers over last 5 years has been awfull. But again why waste money on the likes of pukki and his like when we could bring in Russell and other spl goal scorers for peanuts






    Was it not made clear already that pukki stats were pretty decent ? Nearly sure i read them here.



    I agree mostly with what u say but jeez give this lad a break.. He doesnt even play for us.



    I hope he signs and bangs them in.. Also hope we sign another striker to help him out.



    Alot depends on tomorrow ( although it shouldnt) so lets have a positive blog in the build up. The players need us more than ever.



    Keep the faith ✊

  12. Charlie the road safety cat has been the bane of my life since primary school and lo and behold it even comes up podium grrrrr…..well this Charlie says “FECK OFF” (just kiddin peeps)
