Milne’s prompt for Aberdeen fans

522

A few points about Stewart Milne’s comments this week. Immediately after the Court of Session overturned the earlier rulings on Rangers EBTs, putting the issue of sporting advantage in the spotlight, I noted that it would be the clubs who would decide if this matter would be looked at again, and that if Celtic were unable to gain support from a number of clubs, the issue was dead in the water.

The conversation has been parked until after BDO hear about their application to appeal to the Supreme Court but the issue remains active. Celtic are not alone on this matter, but as you hear from Milne, everyone is not on the same page.

I was a bit surprised Milne spoke openly on the issue but this needed to come out. Just as the SPFL’s decision to act or not is in the hands of the clubs, Aberdeen’s stance on the matter is ultimately in the hands of their supporters. If they care enough about the issue, they must express this view to Milne as clearly as they did in 2012, when they changed his plans on an earlier matter.

Milne’s comments about Scottish football’s position relative to the game in England were among the most futile ever uttered. He is one of the few people in a position to work for change. Aberdeen have more going for them than Swansea – a smaller club based outside England who earn over £100m from Premier League TV rights each season.

No wonder we’re outside the party when one of the men in charge has only just recognised a party exists.

Many thanks to all who donated to our Mary’s Meals appeal yesterday. The generosity of one or two of you blew me away. If you entered the Magners’ ticket competition, check your email this afternoon, as the winner will be notified shortly.

There’s still time to order a book or DVD from CQN Bookstore. Take a look at what’s on offer.

    Nope, the TV revenue will go up as will sponsorship and don’t be surprised the crowds will go up at Celtic park and obviously other grounds.

     

     

    In a few years all will have been a blip.

     

     

    Scummy bassas will remove their humphs and be their bigoted bassas selves. HH

    quonno … but that’s the beauty of it … you charge money, then pay the union dues from money you get from other people…. never have to pay anything yourself! …

     

     

    What’s that you say? …. it sounds like a ponzi scheme? Couldn’t be …. my accountants, the illustrious firm of Duff, Phelps, Murray, Green and Whyte assure me that it is done all the time … no problem…. and if you use a little trust thing they have set up, you dont even have to pay tax on the money you earn! brilliant!

    I’m mostly a lurker these days but like Corkcelt and a few others,the relentless negativity on her is really getting me down. I travel home and away every week to watch the team and I used to look forward to getting my daily fix on the blog on all things Celtic,not any more I’m afraid. I’m away for a wee break from it all, so I would like to wish all my fellow CQN’rs a very happy and holy Christmas and a guid new year. Hail Hail !!!

     

    ——————-

     

    Continue to lurk, there’s the odd post worth reading. Happy xmas and new year to you :O)

    So the club is considering taking civil action against fans who have according to them used the flares in Turkey. I hope this spells the way ahead for our club and tomorrow’s statement will be regarding our claim against the assets of RFC(IL). Or better still against the SFA for awarding the Euro license to deidco, I won’t bet on it though. They call us criminally racist, they colluded with Police against us, they lied about GCC to us, yet they treat us like scum while our absentee chairman lauds a real racist support who he can’t wait to have back hurling racist sectarian abuse in our stadia. This isn’t the club I have supported all my life, it’s been stolen by fascists.

  9. The ExiledTim

     

     

    I think 40 million was the total value of his contract. .

     

    However, there was a clause stating if he was sacked he wold receive one years renumeration.

     

    Still an astronomically huge payoff !!!

  10. West End of East End on

    Corkcelt – Hope you come back soon..

     

     

    Awe Naw – It’s not the eejits that are leaving, it’s the decent guys that are leaving as they are sick of coming on here listening to the same negative pish from the same negative posters every single day. Even when guys like Auldheid takes the time out to point out the flaws in their constant negative opinion, and that’s all it is, their own negative opinion that they tell us is fact then sometimes it’s better to give the place a break.

     

     

    Yesterday was typical, a decent discussion was going on then some guy from Oz comes in and spouts bile at TD67 who wasn’t even on the blog at the time and the whole place deteriorated from there.

     

     

    Today, neg2 comes in with his daily nonsense and brings the place down to his negative level. We get it Neg2, you’re a better Celtic supporter than us as you walked away because the numbskulls in your head told you Celtic bad.

     

     

    I shouldn’t drink on a school night but this place drives you to it at times…

  11. Chelsea Latest

     

    Warbiola rules himself out too busy with preparations for Petrofac Cup.Speak to me after April10th.

  12. Let’s hope that the club takes these ‘flare monkeys’ to the cleaners – probably won’t get anything, they will probably using foodbanks to save their cash for ‘more important’ things, like foreign trips, booze, tatoos, 50″ TVs, Sky/BT subscriptions’ Play Stations and the like….LOL

  13. West End of East End on 17th December 2015 8:25 pm

     

     

    As one of the despised negatives,can you point to an occasion I have lied or failed to hold up my hand when proved wrong?

  14. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    Quonno….. hahahahahahahaha….good retort……if you are waiting around for those in denial to offer you a cord, it will be accord to your own funeral ….. I ‘rest in peace’ my case

     

     

    CHALLENGE THE LIE …..ipox belongs to the creditors and, when all the court cases are concluded, ipox will be seized by the Fraud Squad / BDO For the creditors to share out the carcass ….. You heard it here first…!!

  15. TBJ says Wee Oscar Knox is in heaven with the angels on

    So our club will take civil action against a couple of young bhoys who lit flares at a game but do fek all about rangers ripping us off for decades or even ajax and other fans trashing our stadium! !!

     

     

    Hmmmmm

    Heard it on Newstalk earlier, Johnny Giles was talking about him, and yer man said he got a 40 mill pay off, they were joking about the time it would take him to count it, whatever, it’s feckin obscene.

     

    I would personally give it to the food banks in Glasgow, just to piss off Mr Alfie Pastry Noaks the Quim.

    Mentioned this a couple of weeks ago. Why no statement about four Celtic fans being hospitalised after Hoops bar attack ? They’re not shy in issuing statements when our fans are in the wrong.

  20. THE EXILED TIM on 17th December 2015 8:41 pm

     

     

    40 mil. It would nearly pay off what THEY owe Her Maj.

     

     

    And yes it is obscene beyond words.

  23. Now, I often lose track of the cash in my wallet; my leave balance etc.. but 5 million pounds is not something that anyone loses track of… unless you have an ulterior motive of course… or possibly you are a GASL…..

    Ninsense. They behave like tbe virtual gestapo. Nobody realy wants too dig deeper in case it goes against what they would like to think is the truth. So rather than dismiss any supposition, due to a communicatuon black out, they attack the percievef personality of a virtual poster without dismissing the supposition entirely.

     

     

    If you dont suppose and you assert. I e our ticket oricibg strategy and the mindset behind it then drop it. Don’t debate it. Your doing the SMSM job ….also busted by the way.

     

     

    So no I am not buying it. Scroll by its a blog.

     

     

    Less pollution more debate. Moronic cheer leaders….not here not for me..not virtually. That is scary actuslly.

    Disappointed with Celtic’s sense of balance and justice at times and today is one of those days

     

     

    Driving the wedge further between the club and fans. Bankier is a buffoon IMO!
