Rogic endorsement of direction of travel

538

Tom Rogic is good.  Very good.  He has scored cup winning goals, league winning goals, scored against Newco at three different venues, and most deliciously, has scored Champions League qualification goals.  That old football adage, “Yes, but can he do it when it really matters?”, is never asked about Tom.

With one year left on his existing Celtic contract, he is off with Australia to the World Cup, the most prominent shop window in the game, where good players with a one-year balance on their contracts are a premium.

The news that he signed a five-year contract yesterday has surprised many, including me.  One week ago today, when I asked a ‘senior source at Celtic’ the prospects or retaining his services, I was not encouraged.  “The money on offer in England……..”

This deal is an endorsement of the direction the club is heading from within the dressing room.  Players know where the club is going, Tom knows.  That’s why he has signed.  I am sure his contract reflects his ability, but I am also sure he could have earned more elsewhere.  And five years!!  That’s nearly a Jim McLean!

Good luck tomorrow, Tom, let’s have a repeat of last season’s Cup Final.

    Well,here’s two,in just the first paragraph.

     

     

    *

     

    “I think you may only have seen a small part of the exchanges I have had on this subject by email and on social media. I fear that one short statement can sometimes be taken out of context! This fan was not raising the parking ban. He was complaining to Celtic that they are not putting on buses for disabled supporters.”

     

    *

     

     

    PAUL67 displayed the correspondence. It seems very difficult to take it out of context,but I’m always willing to cut people some slack.

     

     

    Especially if Mason displayed some context.

     

     

    Which he didn’t even attempt!

     

    *

     

    There is no mention made by Mason nor Gordon about Celtic providing buses. Not in the original correspondence. And why should there be? And certainly no complaint by Gordon about Celtic at all.

     

    *

     

    “There is a huge problem with inappropriate parking around Celtic Park on match days. Residents in my constituency are effectively trapped in their homes by fans parking across their driveways, etc. They also live in fear of needing an ambulance or fire engine in an emergency as they would struggle to get into many streets.”

     

     

    Prove it. Prove that it is worse on matchday than any other day. More to the point,like people who complain about Heathrow just after buying a house,Celtic was there first,and you bliddy knew it.

     

     

    Not having it,mate.

     

    *

     

    “In response to several folk raising the question of disabled fans or others who could not walk far, I have said that there is plenty of room for these fans to park if those who are able to walk 20 minutes would park further away in a more considerate manner. The parking problem is not caused by disabled fans. It is caused by perfectly able bodied fans (often with very expensive cars!) wanting to park as close as possible to Celtic Park (and I think the other major stadia in the City) with no regard for residents.”

     

     

    There is no parking problem. Not any worse than Mon-Fri. This is the the equivalent of OBAFA. A regulation brought in to hammer people for no other reason than because they can. What are the parking regulations like near The Louden?

    Fairhill Bhoy , Nicholas is a joke , a complete clown. He has openly stated he’s most passionate about Arsenal. They are welcome to him.

     

     

    When we beat the huns 2 nil at Ibrox, Sammi got our goals, Nicholas was one of the sky pundits. After the game you should have seen the look on his coupon when Neil appeared for his post match interview , sitting two along from him. I thought he was going to soil himself.

    Misprint aside,are your bins ALWAYS picked up on a Sunday afternoon? And why can’t they be rescheduled for another day?

     

     

    Certainly,I’ve never heard of bins being scheduled for a Sunday. Double time,makes no sense.

    DALLAS DALLAS-it’s on a sky Sports loop,is this the best ever Celtic team then goes on to the bold yin and he says absolutely not.To be fair he says the lions are,but it’s his refusal to say he grew up a Celtic fan ?His loss

    Funniest misprint on here for a while. ??

  11. Bobby, wish I knew more about that abandoned railway link running underground along London Road. I’ve suggested in my reply to him to look into the feasibility of that. Between our stadium, the Arena across the road, a new hotel/ museum, this area is just growing and should be better linked to the City Centre.

     

     

    Think of how much money was spent on the Edinburgh Trams. And the massive disruption.

    ‘re The bins.

     

    It’s another erosion of workers rights.

     

    Bins now emptied every day.

     

    All new contracts from past few years, are 5 over 7.

     

    No overtime, as far as I’m aware, I’m afraid, Sat and Sun treated as normal working days.

     

    Hail Hail

  14. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    I’ve had to change my name , they will rough us up with Clancy the ref taking no or very little action against them , i think they will target Broonie, Kieran, Tom and Dedryck. Remember their assistant manager is Lasley . He always kicked our players more than the ball when he was on the pitch.

     

     

    I watched their cup games versus Aberdeen this season, they hustled and harried them in both matches.

  15. fairhill bhoy on

    Come on guys it’s record making weekend,or as newco know it !Saturday and Sunday ???????????

  16. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Fairhill Bhoy, I saw him on it this morning. He sounds as though he is embarrassed to be associated with us .

     

     

    No doubt he will be on sky’s panel in their coverage of the final tomorrow.

    Thanks for asking, I am still on the mend although not 100% yet. I reckon another month before the recovery is complete. Been really busy with the good weather, ie. I sprayed weeds in two fields yesterday, and the ole garden is starting to look not too bad. Thanks again buddy and COYBIG tommo for an historic double. HH

    Roy, that photo of Bobby Murdoch is a classic of a truly world class but extremely humble player. The best hoops top in my opinion.

     

     

    One of my pals met him years ago and called him Mr Murdoch.

     

     

    Bobby replied ‘ Mr Murdoch is ma da’.

  19. i'vehadtochangemyname on

    ‘He always kicked our players more than the ball when he was on the pitch.’

     

     

    love it DD

  20. BMCUWP my bins get emptied every Sunday usually between 12 and 2. It’s s 5 over 7.

     

     

    As for the parking I came home one Saturday and someone had actually parked in my drive – not across it, in the drive in front of the house. So it does happen.

     

     

    None of this is in defence of John Mason simply a statement of facts.

     

     

    It is an issue that had to be addressed.
