What Stein got wrong in Lisbon

433

Jock Stein didn’t get it all right in Lisbon 50 years ago. He told his players Inter’s weak point was their goalkeeper, Giuliano Sarti, who passed away within the last day, aged 83. How wrong could he be? Sarti played the game of his life, resisting Celtic for an hour, and then keeping his team in the game until the end.

Inter’s famed defensive structure was unable to adapt to Celtic’s ability to create space, but a combination of Sarti and the woodwork kept the scoring down. Twice the keeper benefited from the West German officials, once when he stretched behind to claw the ball out of the net, and once when he grabbed Willie Wallace legs inside the six-yard box.

Sarti

Sarti was Inter keeper throughout the Grande Inter period, when they twice won the European Cup and Serie A title. He earlier won the league with Fiorentina, as well as the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Great, though he was, he was no King Canute, and could do nothing about Big Tam’s tidal wave, which changed the course of football.

    If you dont mind me saying, your conservative beliefs prevent an objective understanding of history and politics.

     

    Your agenda is a millstone around your neck.

     

    Free your mind from ideology.

     

    Then maybe we can discuss, without the baggage.

    He also picked two English legends who held their testimonials against Celtic.

     

     

    (And Jim Baxter,who was definitely a Celtic-type player and far from a hun)

    Not sure that The Crusades actually had a “good guy/bad guy” element to it.

    Apart from the stated cause of freeing the Holy land from the Muslim bad guys – by any means.

    According to one of our esteemed bloggers , there are 300, 000 homeless in U.K..

     

     

    In 2016 there was a net immigrant intake of , from memory , 240 , 000.

     

     

    Apparently the NHS is creaking at the seams.

     

     

    Is there a solution ?

     

     

    Clue.

     

     

    The two issues under discussion are related.

    A comment I would expect from a (dim) Modern Studies O Level student old bean!

     

     

    If the 240K immigrants were all homeless that would have merit; the fact that they are not (not even the bulk of them) means that it is a vacuous truth.

    I think you have just about covered everything but I’ve always wondered why in the The Judicial Panel Disciplinary Tribunal Hearing (that took place over six days: 29 March, 6 April (Procedural Hearings) and a Principal Hearing on 17, 18, 20 and 23 April 2012 at Hampden Park, Glasgow where the Tribunal heard the conjoined hearings of the complaints against The Rangers Football Club plc (“Rangers FC”) and Mr Craig Whyte) the wee tax case liability and CWS failure to pay it after he took over in May 2011 was never covered.

     

     

    As will be seen from this extract the unpaid PAYE and VAT was but not the wee tax case liability. Could it be the SFA did not want went on in June and September 2011 to be investigated by their own panel?

     

     

     

    Extract from JPR of charges againstCW.

     

     

    ” From 6th May 2011 to 6th March 2012 (1) Disciplinary Rule 66 (Bringing the game into disrepute: by failing to disclose to the Scottish FA the fact that you were disqualified as a director on 13th June 2000 for a period of seven years, pursuant to the Company Directors’ Disqualification Act 1986 (“the said disqualification”); by failing to comply with the rules of the PLUS Stock Exchange by failing to disclose to PLUS Stock Exchange the said disqualification; by failing to lodge Annual Accounts by 31st December 2011, pursuant to Section 447 of the Companies Act 2006; by failing to hold an Annual General Meeting by 1stJanuary 2012, pursuant to Section 336 of the Companies Act 2006;

    Do you really need the childish criticism

     

    Just indicates you have no response ?

     

     

    The comment was in fact a question .

     

     

    240 , 000 net immigration.

     

    300,00 homeless.

     

     

    Lets increase the numbers in the queue.

     

    Madness.

    With the level of threat being as it is.

     

    I rather doubt whether voters will sign up for even more cuts on the Police and NHS.

     

    May is way out of touch….she needs brought back to reality.

     

    Corbyn is human….more than i can say for millionaire tories who want to hurt the poorest and weakest in society.

     

    Theresa May is a disgrace to humanity, an ogre who will sell arms to any lunatic, and damn the consequences.

     

    She can F… right off.

     

    No offence :)

    Excellent points which need to be addressed. Hopefully your post will not be left behind when Paul moves to a new article. Hope some of the other guff does get left behind, though. The problem is publicity and exposing the cheating. How do we get the facts out when our media are complicit in the cover up. HH
