Peat sounding bitter

86

Not so long ago former SFA president George Peat railed against those who peddled innuendo in the game.  After expressing his regret about a call he received from a director at a club he refused to name, yesterday, when asked by the Daily Record who he referred to, he said, “I would have thought people would have guessed by now anyway.”  The man sounds bitter.

This is an exercise in marking the cards of the 93 (or so) SFA member clubs on whose influence to back.  Peat spent many years mixing with delegates from these clubs at international games, cup finals and Association meetings.  He will retain leverage which Rod Petrie, the chosen successor as SFA president, would benefit from.

Among the members, there are a few modernising clubs, many disengaged, and dozens who live for their trips to Hampden, when they can pull the levers of power.  Petrie wants the top blazer, isolating those provoking change is a clear strategy.

  1. I was listening to John Hegley, the performance poet yesterday.

     

     

    He was doing Acrostic poems where you use all the letters of a word to be the initial letters of a Poem

     

     

    He wrote an acrostic poem for Eric Cantona, based on the word Poem, which read:-

     

     

    Piss

     

    Off

     

    Eric

     

    Merci

     

     

     

    I was wondering if we could do Acrostic poems for Celtic.

     

     

    My initial efforts:-

     

     

    Childhood Excitement Lasts Till I Croak

     

     

    Cannot Ever Lower The Invincible Celtic

     

     

    or

     

     

    Crying Every Lawwell Transfer-Window In Crisis

     

     

     

    I am sure you clever folk can do much better

    £87.1 m on wages etc.

     

     

    Yup, 33 first team players certainly mounts up. We need to vastly reduce this number and have quality not quantity.

     

     

    Strength in depth is another saying that needs continual clarification.

    Two sensible posts on the one page.

     

    You are worth the watching.

     

     

    Whatever else is eating Brendan, if the performance on the pitch is one of them, then it is down to him to fix it.

     

     

    If he feels he hasn’t got the players to continue to play the way we played for the previous two years, then modify the style to suit the players he has ref J.Stein.

     

    I think it is time he adapted it.

     

     

    There is surely something rumbling at Hampden and it is entirely feasible that Petrie is in there somewhere, trying to protect his right of accession.

  4. Perhaps Celtics seeming reluctance to speak out on many `issues` is, quite simply, not a simple as it seems.

    Do they also pay people to post unfavourable comments? If so, it would explain Kev`s input :-)
