Scott Brown defence, pyro problems, the joy of Ryan Christie

265

Scott Brown was assaulted at Ibrox on Sunday and was relentlessly taunted for a family bereavement.  His trademark celebration was understated but marked the treatment he received.  He has been cited by the SFA for “not acting in the best interests of Association Football.”  There is plenty of precedent for Celtic’s legal team to call in his defence.

I have stood within two yards of Celtic fans throwing pyrotechnics onto the field of play.  I have also been in a stairwell, exiting a game with thousands of other packed Celtic fans, when a device went off to the delight of a handful, causing panic to hundreds of others.

If you think appealing to a desire not to damage the reputation of Celtic fans will stop those throwing pyrotechnics, you are wrong.  The reputation of Celtic fans is inconsequential to anyone who throws an item at a player or onto the field.  This is their chance to set their own rules, their personal reputation remains just fine.  If you think they are going to stop because Neil Lennon tells them to, you are deluded.

This will result in blanket video surveillance, a handful of prosecutions, and then we will get back to normal, when Celtic fans’ reputation was the envy of world football.

How much have we missed Ryan Christie?  It is not just what he personally brings, it is having him, Callum McGregor and James Forrest on the field at the same time allows us to move the ball at a pace that is not possible without them.

  1. Big changes needed regarding who gets away tickets.

     

    Micro community of uber fan developing who are only interested in any ultra nonsense they can generate.

     

     

    For them the football is secondary.

     

    We have been here before — casuals at ER in Nov 1987 comes to mind.

  2. RC made a difference last night — he is still very raw but he is a huge talent.

     

    He can do stuff that most of the team can only dream about.

     

    However he needs support and a proper MF balance.

     

     

    CMcG / ON / RC with TW and OB out wide would have been a much better set up than last night.

  3. AULDHEID @ 11:42 AM,

     

     

    Adi Dassler.

     

     

    “It’s taken SFA 4 days to find charges to haul Scott Brown in front of their Judicial Process.

     

     

    How long has it taken for them to take the charges of non compliance of RFC in 2011 to CAS, a decision taken by that same judicial process because the 5 Way Agreement made it impossible for that process to be applied to TRFC!

     

     

    In January the ToRs to go to CAS had not been written and Celtic were passive about it.

     

     

    We still dont know if ToRs established but it’s 8 MONTHS and counting since that decision taken in July 2018 and 4 months when questions asked at Celtic AGM.

     

     

    The process itself is corrupt. That is clear from Res12 Archive.

     

     

    Wake up guys. Smell the bloody roses.

     

     

    The SFA Judicial Process is not about justice. It’s a tool that Celtic seem all to happy to accept, that is used to produce results the SFA want.

     

     

    Yes, slightly ironic, on the week you guys deliver your pièce de résistance on Res 12*, that the SFA are conjuring up charges against Celtic around the Old Firm MKII, to even things up.

     

     

    As you are aware it is no use saying they can’t do this! It has been well established that the SFA can make up their own rules and interpret them in any way they seem fit.

     

     

    The real issue is… why are we here!?

     

     

    The Old Firm should be long dead and buried, yet we are right back to eight years ago and the shame game.

     

     

    At a time when Rangers were engaged in false pretence to secure a UEFA Licence as they expected to be competing in the UCL Qualifiers by fair means or foul.

     

     

    After all that has happened in the last eight years Celtic have given credence to Sevco Rangers, the SFA and the SPFL and it’s as if…

     

     

    the Rangers cheating

     

     

    the OBaF

     

     

    the authorities cover up

     

     

    the media cover up

     

     

    the New Rangers myth.

     

     

    Never happened, we are now soundly in the Scottish Football gutter with the rest of them… we should be hanging our heads in shame.

     

     

    *Of course after reading the Res12 pièce de résistance

     

     

    https://www.res12.uk

     

     

    I’m reminded of the lengths these folk will go to circumvent the truth for the sake of their careers and the money making Circus that is Scottish Football with the Old Firm their party piece.

     

     

    I’m also reminded of the excellent and collossal amount of work and ingenuity that has gone into the efforts to hold the these people accountantable and to right the wrongs.

     

     

    Well done to one and all of you and a special thanks to to Auldheid, not only for the supreme efforts but your consistent engagement to keep the pressure on and keep us informed.

     

     

    You have not got the justice you deserve, you have not got the transparency you asked for and you have not got the level playing field you sought.

     

     

    But the site is testament to the fact your no giving up, your not going away.

     

     

    Well done again, fantastic site. And as if you need reminding…

     

     

    …keep~on~keeping~on

  4. Now that I have seen that Scott Brown IS to be Cited, I am re-posting the following with a couple of additions…

     

     

    Scott Brown, Cited for, Not acting in the best Interests of Association Football ?

     

     

     

     

    If True, then why NOT Cite others like………..

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The SFA and SPL regarding Res 12.

     

     

     

     

    Ref Beaton Celtic V Sevco Dec 29th 2018,

     

     

     

     

    Sevco “Manager” Gerrard, for statements made after Celtic v Sevco March 31st 2019…” I would have did the same as Andy” ( Hallidays assault on Scott Brown),

     

     

     

     

    Foderinghams assault on Mickel lustig at above match,

     

     

     

     

    The SFA AGain, for NOT taking action against Sevco for coins, batteries, being thrown,

     

     

     

     

    the SFA again for Not taking action against Sevco for NUMEROUS Pitch Invasions,

     

     

     

     

    Morelos to be Cited for his NUMEROUS Assaults on Celtic Players in match Celtic v Sevco on Dec 29th 2018

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Above could be just a few examples of what Celtic should throw back at The SFA and SPL, and Sevco, IF Scott Brown is to now be Cited for a ” Trumped Up Charge”, thats only raised to appease the Hun Hordes…

     

     

    ADDITIONS…Arfield for Gloating and doing The Broonie at Ibrox on Dec 29th 2018.

     

     

    The Old, or as THEM say ” The SAME Club” to be Cited for their Mock Huddle in 1999.

     

     

    Celtic MUST now DEMAND that ANY Player or member of staff of ANY Club also be Cited from here on in, for celebrating …..or even SMILING after scoring or winning or drawing a game !

     

    HH

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Give as good as you get Celtic….and then some !

  5. On the subject of balance in the MF — the reserves at StM on Tuesday were missing something in the MF.

     

     

    The three that we put out were all too similar and we needed a bit of a spark through the middle.

     

     

    Add in the KD is carrying the attack at 16.

     

     

    JA looked more of a support striker and not a true leader of the line and AO was not at the races in any way shape or form and we struggled for two thirds of the game.

     

     

    Not sure that the youth set up is firing on all cylinders at the moment.

  6. Celtic should make contact with the green brigade leaders, using Kieran Tierney as a go between as he already knows some of them.

     

    Kieran could approach them and ask them to help police our supporters, and Single out the minority of clowns who are damaging the reputation of our club.

  7. Is it this week a decision will be reached on big eck…….poor guy finger nails must be down to the quick….maybe the sfa are to busy trying some hokery pokery in ruducing the hun bans……seethen with their help will want his best eleven for the return gig…….a win for thems would restore the stephen gerrards rangers at the top of their rags

  8. weebobbycollins on

    So! Mr Gerrard believes they are closer to Celtic than some people/peepil think…

     

    I reckon he has been having a few beers in the Bristol Bar with Helium Robert…

  9. It appears now that the Huns are saying that NOT only did Kent only PUSH Scott Brown, and that the Pics “Make it look worse”, but they are also saying that Broonie “verbally” provoked Kent into “The PUSH” ?

     

     

    Celtic would be best advised to challenge this so called 2Defence2 of Kent etc, as I can envisage a similiar situation that we had with Celt Alexander Tonev and Shay Logan of Aberdeen, when Tonev was PUNISHED by The SFA SOLELY BASED on the word of Logan, and Tonev was found guilty of “Racist remarks” !

     

     

    Til now The Huns havent commented or issued a statement as to “What EXACTLY” did Broonie say to Kent…IF he indeed say anything, that led to Kent feeling SO FECKIN THREATENED that he attempted to knock broonie out with a CLEAR PUNCH !

    Worth a thought – although if he does, he’ll need to stress that they are’t policing me! They’ve set up ther own wee ‘uber-fan’ group – fair enough if they can police that.

     

     

    Not all GB right enough – was another one thrown from the South Stand (opposite end of the group along from where me and Wee BGFC were sited) last night too.

     

     

    Lots of copy-cat stuff going on – lots of wee neds coked up and agressive – not heading in a good direction.

  11. Is EBT Mcleish to be Cited for “Not acting in the best interests of Association football” /

     

     

    Alec EBT Rae…is STILL a QUARK Stunt Double…Surely Fact ?

  12. “Disciplinary Rule allegedly breached: Disciplinary Rule 77 – A recognised football body, club, official, Team Official, other member of Team Staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall, at all times, act in the best interests of Association Football. Furthermore such person or body shall not act in any manner which is improper or use any one, or a combination of, violent Conduct, serious foul play, threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting words or behaviour”.

     

     

    Translation – nae laughing at the back there.

  13. Interesting to find out more about the charge that has been put against SB?

     

     

    How long has it been in the articles of association?

     

    How many times has it been brought into play?

     

    How many times has it been proven?

     

     

    What clubs and what individuals has it been used against and used against successfully?

     

     

    Interesting to see if any patterns of behaviour can be deduced from its history?

  14. so , pointing and laughing at angry people is now a chargable offence.??

     

     

    he past few days have witnessed the collective meltdown of the SFA, the Scottish Police Federation and the SMSM. All because their team lost a game.

     

     

    The nearer we get to 10iar , the worse this will get.

  15. GlassTwoThirdsFull on

    Very intelligent movement from Callum McGregor at the second goal. Dragging a defender out of position and creating space for the Christie shot. Had been making those off-the-ball runs all second half but nobody else was clever enough to attack the space he was creating.

     

    We struggle far too often in these types of games where defences sit deep. Has been an issue for some time and has cost us points. Really something that needs to be looked at going forward.

     

    Probably not the type of game for Burke, with the tight pitch and the deep-sitting defence as there was no space in behind for him to use his pace . Edouard looked more the part when he came on, with his ability to drop deep and run directly at them with the ball. This will win us a lot of penalties. If only we could score them….

     

    Anyway, three more points. Only a matter of time now. Good to see Christie back too.

  16. Celtic were warned this would happen when they stood back and allowed them into League. Didn’t back Res 12 ..Didn’t stop them claiming to be same club.. didn’t get titles stripped.. DD wanted them inleague clled hem a great club! we asked for it.

    ————————

     

     

    Made that very point watching the re-run when we got back last night. Initially it looked as if Christie had about 5 defenders bearing down on him, but Calums rund dragged at least one and possibly two away such that it created the space for the shot. Pass and move – the wee man is brilliant.

    It doesn’t matter whether Kents punch connected or where it connected, he threw a punch.

     

     

    As I’ve said many times, if you throw a punch and the person ducks so it doesn’t connect, the crime is still the same.

    P.S. I also thought N’tcham’s run up for the pen. last night was borderline illegal. I think he stopped his run up and went again. I wonder if the ref would have chalked it off if he’d scored- seems not as he allowed the follow up shot.

     

     

    ——-

     

    According to BT Sports resident referee, stopping or stuttering during the run up is permissible. It’s the striking of the ball which must be a continuous action.

    I’m sorry but in my opinion https://www.res12.uk/ is not a fantastic site.

     

     

    It might have fantastic motives or fantastic values or fantastic plans, but it is not a fantastic site. It is amateurish. It has multiple errors (spelling, content etc). It has superfluous pages. For it to be suggesting that comments should be made to a particular post on SFM is not one of the attributes of a fantastic site. I’m amazed anyone can follow a thread on SFM. It is the most complicated football related site I’ve ever come across.

     

     

    I think the need and audience for a fantastic site on Res 12 is there. Unfortunately I don’t think this is it.

  22. “In the best interests of scottish football” must have taken Russ Abbott on the payroll…….Didn’t the tartan army a few weeks ago lay it onto them ……….sfa get to f—.

  23. GlassTwoThirdsFull on

    So, Gerrardiola wants the player “doing the provoking” punished and all of a sudden Scott Brown is hit with an obscure charge which could be used any week of the season. Totally unconnected I’m sure…….

     

    Interesting to read his comments on Kent:

     

    “I think Ryan was merely pushing him away to get him out of his face after being provoked. That’s our side of it.”

     

    YOU THINK? YOUR SIDE of it? The player will know exactly what he did! Have you not asked him? Or did his answer not sound so good so you are coming up with a “side” to it?

     

    Anyway, brilliant week for Sevco. The league was already well gone but there must have been more mentions of “old firm” than the last five years of Rangers’ existence! Wish we could just completely distance ourselves from this “rivalry” guff. It only benefits them.

  25. The biggest promotion for Res 12 and whether anyone who has strong feelings on it is now, season ticket renewal time, any other protest will not get the attention of Celtic plc.

     

    Lets see how Celtic handle this piece of crap from the SFA on Scott Brown.

  30. lets all do the huddle 🍀 on

    heard that a couple of supporters buses i know locally originally had only 6 or 7 tickets for the game last nite

     

     

    however by yesterday they had 20-odd each

     

     

    why? because when the unused fat cat allocation got handed back a couple of days before the game the buses are allowed to just hoover them up even though they dont know specifically who they are going to

     

     

    if a season ticket holder had went to the ticket office to try get any unclaimed tickets they would just have been told all tickets are sold out

     

     

    high time buses stopped getting preferential treatment as if they are more important than other season ticket holders

    Absolutely love the bhoy!
