Scott Allan back, Newco will have a plan!


Scott Allan had an enormous August, feted by more than one club before joining the champions, so the emotional crash caused by his subsequent injury must have been significant. It was great to hear him return to action with the youths against Hearts last night. We’re competing in three competitions in the coming weeks, so there should be ample opportunity for Scott to get his feet under the table.

I’m a bit curious at reports Dave King and other Newco majority shareholders have agreed a plan to pay Charlies Green’s legal costs, “should they be ordered to do so by the court”.  Aye, very good.  It’s all a bit of a let down to me, who was hoping to see Dave take on the courts, before coming to an inevitable satisfactory outcome with them.

It puts a hitherto unknown limit on the modesty of Mr King, who has now apparently accepted his authority is below that of the Scottish court system. What we haven’t heard is what that plan is, who is going to stump up the cash, or who is going to make up the trading shortfall for this season.  I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about.

With no assets to secure and the prospect of a criminal trial rendering the business unsustainable, further investment at this stage is an act of considerable faith. Such acts do happen, think back to our own John Keane in 1994, who paid £1m to stop the Bank of Scotland putting Celtic into administration. It’s just this kind of act doesn’t seem to happen at Ibrox.  I wonder why?

    PD. A fringe issue. Majority of Celtic supporters couldn’t care less. Petition will reflect that.



    Please bring back Stokesy (again). I am sorry for being unkind to the Elvisphobe. Seriously, we need strikers now that Cifci has done a Tosh.

  2. why did he go with baron parkhead. ?

  3. shameless repost from last night and many thanks to Mick for his prompt reply, anyone who can help, feel free…


    Not a charity but a good cause in my eyes….





    Good evening everyone, hope this is not scrolled by too quickly.





    I am going to be selfish as I am looking for a favour for my lhad. He moved down to Brentford in January this year and has settled in well, job going fine, good flat mates, got a football team to play with and attends Hoops games in The Horse Guardsman home of West London CSC.





    Anyway, he and his flat mates landlord is returning home and they have 30 days to find new digs!





    Such is the way in London today.





    Anyway I have to be selfish and look after my lhad, so am appealing to any London Celts on here who know of decent digs for a house trained young Hoop. I can supply references and can be contacted via here in the first instance.





    Ideally West London would be his preference, as it happens my and the Mrs are visiting him this weekend, looks like we will be flat hunting! Bummer

    I suggest the petition numbers will increase if it proposes to replace the Lord with Heidi Allan MP.

    Bitton back in and Johansen moved forward again?



    He’s better in that position than Johansen but because Johansen played deeper on Sunday he was involved much more(without being great)but at least he was involved.



    Because he was taken out of the attacking equation and replaced by GMS(without being great either)but still contributed more than Johansen has been doing…….was it just a coincidence that we scored 5?

    I called SSB a few months ago and referenced Douggie Douggie incident and stated Scottish referees had been proven to be corrupt.



    Called in tonight. Guy answers the phone and addresses me by name and tells me that I am banned due to my comments.
