SPFL will move with the herd, isolating angry losers


We received clarity from Uefa on some important issues yesterday and not on others.  Access to the Champions and Europa Leagues next season will be granted only on sporting merit.  This finally nailed hopes of the Null and Void Loyal.  If a league was declared void, its standings and results would not hold, so no sporting merit could be determined.

If Newco want access to the Europa League qualifiers, they need the SPFL to award a winner and second place, despite their protests.  Our old pal Cognitive Dissonance must keep them awake at night.

It is clear from the Uefa statement they have listened and tried to accommodate several scenarios.  Where titles are close, like Italy, where Lazio narrowed the gap on Juventus to a point, Uefa suggest a play-off system could allow chasing teams to make up the difference.  AZ Alkmaar trail Ajax on goal difference but the Dutch league is expected to call a halt to the campaign as early as today.  There are no truly satisfactory closures this season, least of all for Celtic, who will be denied a title winning game.

What we didn’t get was a hard deadline on when teams have to be nominated for European competitions.  After discussions with Uefa, the Italian league extended this season’s Serie A to 2 August, so we know for sure the European draws cannot take place until after that date.

I expect we will see European leagues synchronise their moves; there will be no incentive for any radical undertakings.  Those without rabid losers will be first to call time, the SPFL will move with the herd, as it should.  Then those who called for independent investigations into why the SPFL acted the same way as the rest of Europe will look like the angry losers they are.

  1. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    Sevco are desperately trying to extend the controversy in order to delay Celtic being declared champions since, once declared, their fans will walk away, drastically reducing the season ticket monies they cannot survive without ….

  2. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on

    I see again my paranoia and conspiracy theory regarding the tory entryists in the labour party turned out to be true.

  3. 67 Heaven- still waiting for Sevco to publicly say what they want from this,leaving the Laptop Loyal to complete their sentences.

  4. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on

    A decent article that provides some insight into the leaked labour party report into antisemitism and much more, foghorns kind of democracy.

  5. An Tearmann, sorry for your loss. I remembered to pray for Johnny Burns RIP at Mass this morning.



    Wonderful to see that the spirit of Bro Walfrid lives on in our club and its supporters. Well done, the Foundation, for reaching out to so many irrespective of class, creed or race.

  6. Just looking back at the quiz last night, I see I managed to climb one place in the table AFTER I went to bed! That’s my tactics sorted for next week!

    Good afternoon all from the Govanhill people’s front of Laughing at Pathetic hun Dimwits.

  10. The Huns are………attempting to wrap our Title success in as much crap, kerfuffle and manufactured konfusion as they are allowed……….. to shift the narrative from their expensive failures and to cheapen our achievements.


    Hun scoddland is spewin’ at the thought of a Tim triumph.




  11. Is it just me who is hugely dissapointed in Celtics form since mid March ?



    Sevco appear to be now leading in F the SPFL


    How on earth did Lenny and Broonie let us collapse so dramatically


    We only needed 12 points from a possible 24 as well



    Oh, apologies it was just a dream in the Sevco medias mind there.

  12. Don’t know if this was reported before.


    Article in Asia Times originally from Daily Mail. Basically security in U.S. lab was rubbish so gave 3.7 mill USD to lab in Wuhan to continue investigation



    Maybe our resident virologists have already discussed this. Don’t shoot the messenger

    madly at everything lol.


    Well , Sunday tomorrow i think, it’s sad when the highlight of your day is


    your dinner, and then the telly, although great watching big Billy Connolly


    on his tour of America.


    Never seen that before, and one amazing fact came to light, 27 million U.S


    citizens claim Scottish ancestry thought that was maybe a bit over the


    top, but then i watched Billy with Whoopie Goldberg in his first show in


    New York and there they were, all the bhoys in the hoops singing ” here we


    go.. here we go .. here we go.


    Amazing, the Celtic family eh?

    in ither news…..



    The Tudors used to treat venereal diseases by injecting mercury into the ‘affected area’.



    Mercury is, of course, poisonous and these days nobody with any sense would suggest treating a virus with a deadly poison…
