Referees: we can only shine a light


I doubt very much if there was a conspiracy between referees in Scottish football over the weekend, that does not happen.  They cross the white line making their own decisions.

Whether they are just terrible, compromised, or perform well in difficult conditions, is not the consequence of some grand plan.  In my view, they are not good enough to do the tasks required and on Sunday inhibited Celtic’s chances of winning the title.

They will close ranks this week, they always do. All we can do is continue to shine a light.

    he is a pretty unique story for the founders, to be there at the birth of celtic, 1887, and be living in Melbourne half a century later, deserves to be found and honoured by your clubs down there,



    just thought you would connect with that story, cheers.



    Hun administration



    They tried to sign the apparently out of contract D Cousin the day after they went into administration, arguing that it would make them a more attractive proposition to asset buyers.



    I recall Dundee FC appointing administrators at 9am on a Friday and half the staff were dismissed that lunchtime.



    The Huns went into administration and tried to spend even more money.



    Normal rules do not and never will apply.






    This I remember.



    It stunk then and stinks now



    How TF did they get away with it??

  7. Melbourne Mick on




    Quite a sad looking place and no headstone, buried under a tree.


    Will definitely find it and visit.


    You’re correct our bhoys here should honour it.

    its maybe the same Gub

  10. park the bus n blootir it on

    Petec, where is kevj ? kojo ? BlantyreTim ? Doc ? and so many more ?


    I see you say kevj’s name then more people talking about kevj.


    What happened to kevj ?


    Is his health ok ?


    Last that I saw his name he said something about being unable to walk.


    He got cancer removed as well. Hope he survived the last two years malarkey.


    Where did all of the dozens and maybe hundreds of names go to ?


    Do you think kevj is me ya eejit ?


    lol 😁


    I can be off the wall a bit paranoid android lost in a world of liars, and betrayers but kevj was a one man assault team and he must have the skin of a rhino with all the abuse even though most of what he said has come true and that seemed to make the “know alls” more determined to have him removed such precious souls that they are. When did he last post ?


    Where are all of the posters ?


    Where are the cliques ?


    kevj wherever you are, the board did help Ibrox to slip the crime scene, and as you yourself used to say “Empty The Park” aye if only we had real rebels like back in the day 1994, now we’ve sheep like you said they were you were correct ! 👏 Keep well kevj. 🙏


    Nothing changes till we get new Celtic take no sh** supporters, and sadly we’ve about a handful of those types.


    God bless the soul of Garry and comfort to his family. 🙏

    Divide and con…….quer






    Brilliant, Bankiebhoy1.






    If you have no objections I’m going to borrow and use that one moving forward?

  12. Copied from etims .

    To increase the chances of addressing the issues happening the numbers seeking answers must be big.



    An excuse for not pursuing Res12 was not enough supporters/shareholders cared. Only a small dedicated group of around 130 persisted after 2019 AGM.



    However that was when we were winning which is no longer the case, so there is an opportunity now to make things happen that should not be dismissed by thinking nothing will happen. I do not mean you personally Terence, I appreciate many do from years of frustration but circumstances now favour shareholders and supporters than at any time as a result of them being more informed and asking questions about the SFA that we expect Celtic to ask.



    One of the problems the AGM route to accountability has though is that it is open to shareholders only via the medium of Resolutions making a case to The Board and seeking answers.



    The CST now have around 1000 members who are shareholders who, after The CST voted to adopt a A Note of Concern resolution with has cast iron reasons to justify those concerns and following legal advice, CST Members have been asked to sign the requisition to have it added to the next Celtic AGM agenda, as a result of which it will go public.



    The minimum requisitions required is 100 and from a CST membership of 1000 that should be achievable, but more are needed, much more and although some/many ST Holders do not carry any votes they are in fact the most powerful force for change of Celtic, a force that has to be harnessed without ST holders having to join the CST to do so and a way to let them support the Note of Concern Resolution after it is lodged is being explored.



    The details of the Resolution sent to CST members will be made more public soon in order to find those Celtic shareholders who are not CST members to support the Resolution. There is no need to be a CST subscriber to do so, although the work put into The Note of Concern by the new members of the CST might be persuasive, but this is not a recruitment exercise.



    It is about bringing this Celtic Board to account for the shoddy manner they treat Celtic shareholders and supporters but also with the intent of providing a platform from which Celtic with a supporters and shareholders united behind it, can not only move Celtic onwards but upwards and arrest the steady decline of a great club since 2012.



    If you are a Celtic shareholder but not a CST member and want to consider supporting the Note of Concern Resolution now, then e mail The Celtic Trust at and ask if they can direct you to where the Resolution document can be read and downloaded for action.

    Clunks – short answer? They didn’t.





    Slightly longer answer?



    All the spin and BS can’t change documented, historical fact.



    They were a “rich” man’s play thing.



    He got shot of them to chancer no.1


    (for a £1)



    Admin followed.



    Chancers no. 2 & 3 stepped up.



    As liquidation loomed …. the staunch, the proud, the loyal …. were asked to step up with open wallets to save their club.



    They didn’t budge.


    (Perhaps they had difficulty wading through all that Fenian blood?)



    The club was liquidated.



    Chancer no 4 (with an impressive ensemble supporting cast of chancers – some visible, others not so) stepped up.




    The staunch, the proud, the loyal … belatedly stepped up


    (followed the piper would be more accurate)


    …. and fed the chancers via an IPO.



    A few years later, chancer no. 5 saw an opportunity



    “For it’s a RAND old team to PAY for” ?



    And the rest is rinse and repeat history.





    When I reflect on the facts it often makes me chuckle.



    Does that make me a bad person?







    I heard Kojo had made a racist remark and was booted. Not sure how true that is….

  15. BOGNORBHOY on 7TH OCTOBER 2021 10:05 AM


    Celtic by numbers , worth a read i.m.o.





    Agreed. I read his article this morning and look forward to the next two.


    It may well reveal that we are `paranoid` but being educated through facts is fine by me.

  16. You are a reffing a game in ibrox…



    A- you ignore a sevco bad challenge then send off a Hibs player for a similar challenge Media coverage -nil



    B- you ignore a sevco bad challenge and ignore a Hibs bad challenge Media coverage pretty high on the Hibs foul



    C- You red card the hun and leave the Hibs player on the field Media coverage main news headlines, death threats and permanent demotion…



    What do you do?

  17. Yorkbhoy



    well, as you say ‘you’ which from my side means ‘me’ then i red card the sevco player; book the hibs player and send of beale for complaining 😎




    Does that make me a bad person?




    Nope. 😂🤣



    Schadenfreude CSC 🍀

  19. Auldheid


    I’m not a CST member, but I would interested in any attempt to hold the board to account, think you have my email as I supported res12 .


    Let me know if this is not the case please.

  20. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on




    Germans all getting what none of them voted for.



    Sound familiar ?





    Park The Bus – Lol.




    For some reason was immediately reminded of an episode of Auf Weidersehen, Pet



    when the gang decide to paint their hut and conceive a first choice, second choice ballot because they can’t agree a colour.



    It doesn’t end well.



    After the result is announced



    Denis (Tim Healy) :


    “Well that’s a smashing system that, Barry. Everybody gets what nobody wants?”



    Barry (Timothy Spall) :


    “That’s democracy, Dennis”

  21. Leftfield moan — the global “chip” shortage.


    Seems to be in the main a shortage of cheap commodity chips built using old school equipment.



    Nobody builds the old school equipment to make them so we are now having our issues as demand increases and we do not have the production equipment to meet that demand



    I wonder whatever happened to the equipment that came out of the NEC plant when it shut down? In its day it seemed to have a rosy future but the high pound and the trend for low cost country sourcing in second rank Far East economies stopped it in its tracks,



    Anybody know what they built there?


    What production equipment did it have and where did it end up when the plant was shut down?



    From memory there was also a chip plant in Greenock above and beyond the IBM assembly plant.
