Media fast and loose with Neil Lennon comments

906

The annual raft of idle speculation unsettling Celtic’s playing and managerial resources is well underway.  One newspaper headline today proclaimed, “Celtic boss wants Canaries to approach him”, based on Neil Lennon when talking about moving to England saying, “There has been no offer, there has been no concrete phone call or anything like that, so I haven’t really had a decision to make on it”.  Countless others have followed in a similar theme.

Neil Lennon has not really hidden the fact that he would like to manage in the FA Premier League one day, but none of the journos with pages to fill have any notion on his thoughts of dropping a division in England.  In the real world, Neil is showing no reticence in pursuing team development plans for next season.  We’ll be involved in Champions League football two months from tomorrow, the manager is busy on the matters in hand.

Best wishes to John Brown for his inspired attempts to take down Newco Rangers.  More power to you, John, I hope you have any many lemmings lined up as possible.  Some months ago the plotters had a notion that they would starve Newco shareholders into handing over the club for zilch, or £1 less than Rangers were sold to a liquidation expert for.  It remains possible that Sevco will starve, but notions that there will be an outcome for the plotters which is more desirable than an existence under the current crew are fading by the day.

Don’t forget, we’ve Tommy Gemmell, live on the blog, on Friday between 13:00 and 16:00.  He’ll be here to chat and answer your questions.

    Moi?

     

     

    I didn’t post anything about NL last night. Are you still sleeping? :-)

  2. Scene: at the house of Mr G. Wallace.

     

     

    Ding, dong!

     

    “Good morning Mr Wallace. I’m from the SA Trustworthy Crooks Inc. I have a deal for you which you’d be mad to refuse. Just hand over the deeds to your house and I promise to give you 10,000 pounds.”

     

     

     

     

    Just how desperate would you have to be not to slam the door in their face?!

  3. Greenpinata,

     

     

    I t was myself who mentioned le petit merde last night. He was some player for us, although I have no respect whatsoever for him now.

     

     

    McClair No 1,

     

     

    I don’t really agree with you but you are most certainly a gentleman. We have need of the likes of yourself on here. Peace be with you too.

    There’s always some weird animal

     

    making a funny noise outside your back window, in the middle of the night.

  7. I was talking to a guy I know who plays for Montrose about their season just ended. Like all footballers, he thought they could have done better but ” we lost our right back half-way through the year. He was offered a job off-shore and we never replaced him and I had to play in his position.”

     

    It really brought home to me the level at which Sevco have been playing for the last two years and spending £70 million whilst so doing.

  8. Mea Culpa

     

     

    Maybe it’s time G Wallace sent for Ol’ Gil Gunerson, the super-salesman from The Simpsons.

     

     

    In one episode, he is cold-calling people, in an attempt to get them to take out a newspaper subscription. One caller tells him to ‘dance for it!’

     

     

    So, in his desperation for a sale, and despite being at the other end of the ‘phone, Ol’

  9. Continued

     

     

    Ol’ Gil dances away..

     

     

    Now that’s the kind of desperation required down at Mordor!

  10. Desertbhoy

     

     

    Aye he’s fit, and raring to go. Like a young heck getting prepared to be unleashed :-)

     

     

    All good mate. Goes tomorrow night. He’s got his ground ( they are actually watering), so as long as the rain stays away he’ll take his chance.

     

     

    Should run very well. He would have run at Aintree national meeting in a better race than the one tomorrow, so he’s in with a Vg chance assuming he is in form.

     

     

    Can’t guarantee that of course, but at home he’s flying.

     

     

    Been bitten too many times to risk the pension pot, but still daft enuff to risk more than I should:-))

    So Sevco Ceo saying ” look we are skint and I know we blew £70m in 2 years -but honest this time we wont do that..and if you give us all your money-we wont sell the hoose! -honest honest”

     

     

    ….the gift that just keeps giving

  12. Hrvatski Jim on

    I hope to meet more CQNers over the next few months and to buy you a pint.

     

     

    However, I must now set out my conditions.

     

     

    If I buy the first round, you shall produce for me a legally binding guarantee that you will not dispose of any major asset that you hold until you buy me a pint back. On satisfactory discharge of your obligations, I will release you from your guarantee.

     

     

    Fair’s fair – don’t you agree?

  13. Phyllis dietrichson

     

     

    I think t n t was responding to a question about ‘ the commander’ on the previous page.

    King and the Easdales will be forced to settle.

     

     

    Wallace the broker.

     

     

    I am told that Wallace is quite an impressive man and nobody’s fool.

  17. Hearing on twitter that Danny McGrain suffered a heart attack last night…shocked!

  18. Phyllis Dietrichson on

    beatbhoy – sorry, I didn’t understand your response. Am I completely off the mark here? – was tnt not giving a tip for a horse?

  19. Good morning my friends in Celtic,

     

     

    Apologies for butting in to your racism debate.

     

     

    I detest racism in any form. Let me be clear and unequivocal in that.

     

     

    Sometimes though I feel we look too deeply for intent that’s not there or at least debatable. The McCarthy which- hunts spring to mind.

     

     

    Almost any chant / song can be deemed racist if the which finder general is determined to find it. eg Flower of Scotland, et al.

     

     

    Should rappers of whatever colour face the same actions for use of a derogatory word that has no place in modern society. IMO Yes if we believe in equality. However this does not seem to be the case. Why?

     

     

    Race or any perceived medieval doctrine can never come before equality. Females all over the world are still discriminated against; both in the UK and further afield. Not just by words but by actions. And as we know action speaks louder than words.

     

     

    As we seemingly have many female lurkers on here then let us diversify slightly and address equality as part of the racism debate.

     

     

    HH, always in Celtic.

    It was actually £70m in 18 MONTHS, which is even more impressive…..even my wife couldn’t spend THAT AMOUNT in 18 months…….bless them (well, maybe not….) … Hahahahahahaha !!!!

  21. Phyllis dietrichson

     

     

    Yes, I think so. However, he didn’t mention the horse by name.

     

     

    I was just surmising from desertbhoy’s original query about the ‘commander’ that Dawn Commander was the horse being discussed, not the other one you mentioned.

     

    Sorry for any confusion. Serious business, punting.

  22. Phyllis

     

    I am also completely off the mark! I was awaiting TNT`s reply to you so that I , too, could have a wee flutter. I still await 0:-)

    “In one episode, he is cold-calling people, in an attempt to get them to take out a newspaper subscription. One caller tells him to ‘dance for it!’”

     

     

    This caller would tell them to “swing for it”

    67heaven,

     

     

     

    £70 million in 18 months!!??

    Equality is a difficult one.

     

    If we mean equality of opportunity, then virtually the whole of society would have to be changed.

     

    If we mean equal reward for effort, then how do we judge occupations?

     

    How do we allow for natural talent?

     

    In the more obvious cases, eg discrimination against women in society, I am with you but , as I said, it is not an easy concept.

     

    Cheerio for now. Golf match at Carnoustie ( Burnside) where handicaps are at least an attempt at equality 0:-)

    At 08.37, Desertbhoy posted. . .’TNT, any news on the commander?’
