The dirty little subject

323

When (not if) the season is called, the dirty little subject will rear its head, Celtic have five postponed home league games on the season ticket.  While Celtic are likely to be Last Man Standing after the financial crisis that will engulf the game following on from the health crisis, we are set to lose tens of millions of pounds and will inevitably lose money over this period.

What next season will look like remains uncertain; we don’t know when football will resume behind closed doors, when fans will be able to attend or enough clubs will survive to give us a competition.  With so many doubts, we cannot be complacent, which is why players and execs took a pay cut and non-essential staff were furloughed.  In short, we need to retain as much income reduce costs where possible.

There is another side of this story.  We have over 50,000 season ticket holders, many of whom have been without an income in weeks, some are on reduced wages and, inevitably, some will have no job to return to when furlough ends.  As a club, we have to offer a refund for those five games, cash is too important for a family that has none, they cannot put food on the table with a Superstore voucher.

Partick Thistle offered fans a refund and those who needed it, took it, but 96.5% of season ticket holders left the money in their club.  By any standards, that is incredible.  I suspect the demographics of the Celtic support are different; we have plenty of wealthy fans, but I know many who put a huge portion of their disposable income into following Celtic, almost certainly a higher percentage than Partick.

More Celtic fans will need a refund to get through the month, so it should be offered – as soon as possible after the season is called.

  1. St Mirren,Motherwell ,already scathing of the “Bombshell dossier”courtesy of the Record.

     

    Much poor rage on Scum blogs.

  2. celticforever on

    teams are going bankrupt and the huns are prolonging this crap

     

     

    Hope any support they did have from other teams evaporates

  3. If St. Mirren, Motherwell & Celtic vote against the Huns, their motion is toast already.

  4. The Blogger Formerly Known As GM on

    Oh dear, i wonder how the shills in the SMSM will spin this one?

  5. Trying to get your head round what the Hun is up to is like trying to herd piglets, but I just came across a wee snippet from former SPL CEO Roger Mitchell. He says he is worried that (Sevco) might not make it through the current crisis, but there is then an opinion that they may be intent on taking as many as they can with them, a growing sentiment amongst many in Scottish football following the oldco 2012 saga and bitterness that ensued.

     

     

    That makes some sense when you consider the Hun mindset.

  6. Read a few pages Póg, very interesting but I don’t have the stomach to read 200 of then,

     

    From what little I read it all seems stuff that is in the Public domain.

     

    If there is a smoking gun somewhere no one seems to have found it yet.

    Possibly the best laugh I’ve had since their last supremacist load of crap. Surely time for the bolt gun to be applied to the cranium.

  8. The Onlooker on

    Roddy Forsyth at 11:30 news on Radio5 confirmed that Rangers ‘ whistle blower’ was their own Chief executive Stuart Robertson .
