Schisms, corralling the message

926

Aberdeen are on the kind of downward spiral which is difficult to arrest, but there’s more going on that we know about publicly. I would be amazed if their recent run, four defeats and a draw in five games, after winning their opening eight league games, was all to do with matters on the park.

They are a team who look to be in schism. If so, Celtic Park is the perfect venue to pull together. You raise your game at Celtic Park in a way which isn’t likely in Dingwall. Whatever differences that exist will be set aside, we’ll need to be on our game to win.

Craig Whyte’s bankrupt, unable to pay Ticketus the £18m damages they won against him. Craig’s financial strength was plain for all to see, as he made regular trips north on Easyjet in his worn-out attire, owning up to the fact he couldn’t fund the bank repayment, until a clever knight put him onto Ticketus.

Charles Green was equally transparent. Relying on shares-for-backing deals with pliable ‘legends’. Now we have Dave King, overwhelmingly dependent on PR and a compliant media, while the rest of the world is sticking dates in the calendar. The most common question I’m asked these days is “When’s it going to happen?” It’s no longer a matter of “if” it’s going to happen.

The re-writing of history, evident today, will be rolled out again in due course. “We told you about him”, they will scream. Aye, sure you did. You also made it all possible, just as you did with Green, Whyte and Murray.

The trade in favours, exclusive stories, substances and team-handed loose-limbed 60 minute acquaintances, deployed to sustain the project and corral the message over the years is legend. Truly legend. Fraternity on this level takes more than money, a business lunch or a game of golf.  If that’s how you think the game is played, these guys will leave you standing.  Shed tears for none of them.

The books which will be written when the guilty are dead will sell millions.

    I am about to become a triband man as Mrs RWE moans that her data download is compromised by my streaming the Celtic games.

    Yes. Absolutely breathtaking revisionism from the Record today. Firstly, about their coverage of ‘billionaire’ Craig Whyte when he was going to buy Rangers. And secondly about the subsequent liquidation of the club.

     

     

    It really is amazing stuff! You can read more about it in my piece from earlier this morning.

  7. Never mind about ermine robed folk claiming to be from Parkhead.

    Shed no tears? Are you mad Paul? I’m crying with laughter.

     

     

    Left a wee description of how it might play out on the last thread. Won’t repost it here, but the essence is that the fans have to ca’ canny now. If they pile their savings into King’s project, it’ll keep it going for another month or two, but leave the fans rooked when the next opportunity arises to take ‘the club’.

     

     

    “The club” in this scenario is reduced to paying licensing fees to an Ashley-owned franchise and stadium rental to RIFC.

     

     

    Just my guess, one of the myriad stabs in the dark in how this tortuous tale might play out.

    Correct,

     

    What Ogilvie has got away with is astounding.

     

     

    Any other country in the world he would have been out of a job 4 years ago.

     

     

    The very fact that he kept his job throughout the EBT scandal and the LNS whitewash is incredible.

    Well it’s pretty clear something was going on in the background when the Glib one came out with that rant the other day.

     

    If the rumour about not being able to use the badge is true that will hurt them badly. Maybe they could replace it with a Dallas Cowboys badge…?

  11. Oh good, it’s Friday again and that’s traditionally a day for good bad news from Sevco. Here’s hoping.

     

     

    And let’s hope it’s a good weekend for sheep shearing too.

  14. I’m not 100% sure CW is pot-less. Where did the cash go from ticketus/un-paid tax when Rangers* were possibly cash-generative? This is completely hypothetical and definitely nonsense, but it is standard practice for a subsidiary (this could be CW’s Rangers* Co, for instance) to transfer cash to a top-co based in BVI/Bermuda etc, never to be seen again. In the BVI, reporting requirements are zilch. No annual return, you don’t have to to even register accounts. He’ll be fine, I suspect.

    Totally agree tomorrow is now a very different game than was envisaged a few short weeks ago especially by the nega-philes, when Aberdeen gained a shock ‘SMSM hopes raised’ five point advantage, especially when they have a ‘proper master tactician’ at the helm.

     

     

    This game was to be preceded with us staying tight during the rest of September and October, and we’d maybe depose the dandy Dons at Parkhead and regain the league lead?

     

     

    Who’d have thunk it? – nobody could have seen Aberdeen fail so spectacularly in such a short space of time, and definatley not those in SMSM Sevco la la land.

     

     

    Celtic now have to stamp superiority by stretching a lead, sometimes we fail when we don’t really, really need to win, and it’s a differently dangerous fixture because instead, it’ll be Aberdeen doing what they normally have to do, – chase.

     

     

    I hope Ronny and his superior squad continue to run rings round our Scottish opposition, in the way he did at Tynecastle with consummate ease, and in preparation for the mauling of Molde, sweep away Aberdeen.

     

     

    Scotland’s game of the day, with another Gazebo in the week.

    Of course if Mr King is not happy with the Sports Direct arrangement, he could just pay back the loan. Would only use up one sixth of what he is going to invest…..

  18. Afternoon all.

     

     

    The huns unable to display that ‘stinking’ badge this weekend?

     

     

    T-shirts from Primark all round.

     

     

    “Two furra pound!”

     

     

    HH!!

  19. Should have plenty to beat the sheep tomorrow. They’ll be looking for a scrap to hang onto so no silly mistakes please and get right in about them from the off. An early goal should lead to a few.

  20. Office hun watch update:

     

     

    The sevco zoomer in the office has now taken to calling the GSL ‘King King’.

     

     

    Seriously. Apparently he’s standing up to dastardly Mike, will see him off and return ra mighty gers to world dominance. He’s now sat at his desk twitching and mumbling.

     

     

    Fair brightens up a Friday!!

     

     

    HH and a happy weekend to all the good guys.

  21. mullet and co 2 on

    Seem to recall ladbrokes running a book on McInnes chucking it or getting the bag at Aberdeen at the start of their losing run.

     

    On yesterday’s level 5 and ladbrokes story I’d say there was cloven hoof involvement in that.

     

    Insider knowledge from the friends of McInnes camp?

  22. Could be any one of a dozen who post in here this guys talking about, but I’m not naming names, as I’m carrying on an investigation right now, so it would blow some covers, and all my hard work would have been for nothing, so please be patient.

     

     

     

    Another Hack Trying To Make A Name For Himself…

     

    As if there were not enough of them already?

     

     

    While looking through the Newsnow feed yesterday, I came across an article from the Dundee Evening Telegraph headlined, ‘Celtic Have Missed The Chance Of A Lifetime’ by a guy called Liam Kennedy.

     

     

    After reading his fantasy based piece on how we should have built this dynasty simply because ‘Rangers’, that’s what he called them, are no longer in the top flight of Scottish Football, I asked Liam through his Twitter feed if he could provide some substance to the article and show me examples of other footballing dynasties.

     

     

    A reasonable request I thought, given this is a bona fide newspaper.

     

     

    Unfortunately, Mr Kennedy, I’m assuming that’s his real name, didn’t like to be questioned about the substance or his authority to comment on our club. He just retorted that we’ve have it easy in Scotland and we’ve been crap since Ronnie took over.

     

     

    When prompted on how much he’d actually seen of Celtic, his response was more than his own club in the last twelve months. Which could be once, twice or ten times for all I know.

     

     

    My next question was obvious, who does he support? A relevancy I’m sure you’ll agree to ascertain any potential bias. I’m still waiting for an answer, but he did inform me he’s not from Dundee, though he writes for the Tayside newspaper and he’s not Scottish. As if that matters.

     

     

    However, he did on a couple of occasions tell me he was entitled to his opinion and that I was in denial. Of what, I’m not sure.

     

     

    There’s no doubt this hack has come up with a cock and bull story to try and have a kick at our club and our manager. There is no foundation to the contents of the article whatsoever. It’s all made up.

     

     

    His unwillingness to answer any relevant questions tell me he’s hiding something. That’s his prerogative.

     

     

    But one thing is for sure, he has no right or authority to make wild claims about our club or our manager because it suits him and/or his newspapers agenda. There are enough of those Hugh Keevins types in Scotland already…

    I know that the site was set up at the suggestion of your Rangers-supporting friend.

     

     

    Since then,you have been upfront with how things are over Ibrox way.

     

     

    Similar here,I’ve been telling my Kilwinning mates how bad things are since 2004. It was only when I read this site-and then others-that I discovered how bad.

     

     

    The upshot is that despite not being the type to ram it down their throats the dynamic has changed.

     

     

    The friendship is still there. But the camaraderie has gone. We canny rip the pish out of each other.

     

     

    I hope the friendship with your pal is still as strong. But the ones I have are more damaged by their implosion than by my absence.

     

     

    On the plus side-most of them blame Murray,and the papers for lying to them!

  25. “I hope the friendship with your pal is still as strong”

    Going by the relentless digs I’d say the relationship between Paul and neganon is little strained these days.
