World class deficit of self-awareness

1194

The word of the day is anosognosia, def. a deficit of self-awareness.

While discussing his Fit and Proper examination by the SFA, Dave King told the media that “If the level of detail that was applied to me was applied to Craig Whyte then he would never have taken over the club.  The club would have had a chance.”

It was Dave King’s job to examine Craig Whyte’s Fit and Proper status, not the SFAs!!!  Dave King was on the board which approved Whyte’s takeover.  The SFA were not and should not have been involved in determining the suitability of Whyte’s appointment, which was the exclusive responsibility of the Rangers board.

The SFA subsequently sanctioned the club for failing to carry out its duty in this respect.

Let’s look at that quote again and allocate responsibility:

“If the level of detail that was applied to me was applied to Craig Whyte [by me, when it was my job to do so]then he would never have taken over the club.  The club would have had a chance.”

There is no Fit and Proper test.  Criteria are published to allow clubs to determine the suitability of appointments.  Whyte did not meet the suitability required.  If anyone on the Rangers board had taken the trouble to check Whyte’s credentials (which they had a fiduciary and SFA obligation to do so), and informed the SFA of their findings, Craig Whyte would have been stopped in his tracks.

A note to my friends in the media:

Guys, ignoring stuff like this is why people said you were compliant with Whyte, Green and Murray.  Don’t come back a year from now and say you didn’t know.

Dave King is a gift.  You know what he’s going to do, you know how this ends.

Walk for Tony

As most of you will know, RWE lost his son, Tony Conway, earlier this year to MND.  12 of Tony’s friends are walking 100km tomorrow and Sunday, from London to Brighton.  If any CQN’ers are local, they’re looking for moral support more than money, so here’s the route they’re taking.  They start on Twickenham Road at 9:40 tomorrow morning, hoping to reach Brighton around 7:00 on Sunday.

Tony appears to have inspired a lot of people, which is a none too shabby legacy.

It’s season ticket Deadline Day!!

    Any chance you could print off paper copies, use your inimitable charm, get them filled in and send them to me? :-)

    theoriginalsadiesbhoy,

     

    I see your using the same emotive language the board love to see in fact a wet dream for any plc board, “withholding my money” how sick is that.

     

    ………………………………..

     

    ‘Sick’???

     

     

    You are entitled to do as you wish. Good luck to you.

  4. Personally think it’s a marriage made in Heaven with the SFA and SMSM blessing

     

     

    What can possibly go wrong?

    Currently 117, received a letter saying they where being moved, no renewal form etc so my dad went in paid renewal but no seat allocated?

    My dad is renewing the Bhoys season ticket today and I am glad the games against the new rotten mob are pending. He will not be going anyway.

    FFS,the huns thought McColl from Clyde Blowers or some other Rangers-minded billionaire would bail them out.

     

     

    They didn’t. And by ‘eck they were asked,pleaded with.

     

     

    So we have billionaire fans too. The club,if run properly,is a cash cow.

     

     

    Yet they won’t be interested cos of the downsides. Personal and financial.

     

     

    So who would have the money,time,inclination?

     

     

    Go on,mate. It’s not bliddy mastermind. And I’ll bet the stewards are less friendly than ever too.

    I think mini’s situation is because they’re moving the family section mate.

     

     

    Livibhoy

     

     

    What if it isn’t the huns that are in the league next season? He’ll possibly miss out on two games.

     

     

    If the ST was for the 19 games as it was for the last two seasons then it would give you the option of upgrading it for an adult if you didn’t want the wee man to go.

    BMCUW,

     

    My argument today was started by watching Morissey being told to buy his season ticket, so by the same token that you demand I stop advising why people should think about who they are actually supporting as opposed to who they want to support, maybe you need to look at what you are saying.

     

     

    ———

     

     

    I ‘told’ morrisey to buy. Inasmuch as I said ‘Yes is the answer’.

     

    You’ve met the Bhoy haven’t you. You really think a comment like that and the ones of similar tone are going to somehow brainwash or intimidate such a strong willed individual.

     

    Cmon pal.

     

     

    I’d also ‘plus 1’ BMCUW’s opinion that your attack on someone who dos choose to renew out of a love for celtic was out of line.

     

     

    ‘Sick’ was a word that should never have been used as an allegation against a good Tim listening to heart and conscience.

     

     

    IMHO

    Next year I will take him more.

     

    He has a season ticket because my dad buys it for him.

     

    I would not take him to any Sevco game until he is older.

     

    When it is cold or midweek I can’t take him. He will not make more than about 10 games next year anyway so I am not worried for the Sevco match and obviously if it is Motherwell or if Hibs can pull a miracle then so be it.

     

    My main problem may be getting a ticket for myself to be able to take him and get us both in the same section but I have sent an email to CFC around this. Hopefully if it is a weekend match and not baltic we will be there next season.

     

     

    Hope that makes sense.

  14. Good Morning!

     

     

    I am still reeling from yesterday’s side-splitting entertainment from the Komedy Kingdom.

     

     

    Huge amounts of bluster and assertion, and more contradictions than you can shake a stick at.

     

     

    If yesterday’s King interview/press conference were meant to mark the dawn of a brave new era, they failed completely.

     

     

    So what did we learn yesterday? Here are some thoughts:

     

     

    https://theclumpany.wordpress.com/2015/05/21/the-great-sevco-guffaw-chest/

     

     

    Enjoy the rest of the day!

  15. Decent sized Q to renew at the TO this morning, I’d say 50 – 60 or so waiting for the office to open, and the Q was still growing as I left.

     

    Not bothered if Sevco come up (think they will – have momentum) but this will give King issues, their youths showed last night that they will not be good enough to play SPL football to the standard the mob expects, so will have to offer decent contracts to at least 10 new players.

     

     

    Hope we get a few new players in over the next month or two.

    Don’t let her sit anywhere near those animals.it’s a sad day when those basturds come before your own Supporters,Celtic need a rethink on their PR.

    They where advised they would be relocated to 110 but this never happened

     

    If they try to move them to a restricted view I will demand my cash back

     

    The ticket is dearer this year due to the fact that you only get 17 games instead of 19

     

    I wouldn’t allow mini to go to a game v sevco

  18. I actually believe it is a sickness when some one feels they are withholding their money, especially when so many others encourage this emotional blackmail.

     

    As I have been saying for the last few days, not buying a season ticket is not withholding money and emotional blackmail the kind I am watching on here is IMO vary nasty type of bullying.

  19. Livibhoy

     

     

    No’ really :-)

     

     

     

    My point is that the STs should cover all home league games regardless of opposition.

  20. Hamiltontim

     

     

    Fair point.

     

    I do agree in principle. Personal reasons though I am glad the Bhoys ticket won;t be valid.

    …………………………

     

    Emotional blackmail? What, by encouraging fellow Celtic supporters to get out and support the team if they can afford to. I think you take yourself too seriously. The last I have to say on this. Running out of battery.

  22. BT

     

     

    I’m not sure they know where the family section is being moved to but I’ve heard that it’ll the Celtic End. It was a mental decision to put it next to the away support in the first place.

     

     

    Yep, see my previous posts about the 17 game ST mate.

  23. jg,

     

    Morissey was one too many for me, was where I was coming from, it’s been emotional blackmail season for the last few week the bullshit about withholding money, damaging the club is just getting out of hand, the board have told everyone they are in rude health, so one season where the support let them know they are going in the wrong direction is not going to kill the club is it ?

  24. canamalar

     

     

    From my perspective the ‘bullying’ to encourage renewal has been less aggressive or persistent than Mrs Doyle with a cup of tea…..

     

     

    Go on, will you not, go on…….

     

     

    Your comments were rather more Father Jack in tone. Again IMHO.

    PS I am not nun. And I have never been a nun. So please don’t react badly towards me!

  25. Theoriginalsadiesbhoy,

     

    We’ll go back to my initial point, what you actually said was

     

    “Withholding my money” that is not encouraging any one to do anything is it ?

     

    What exactly do you mean by it ?

  26. HH to one and all from Edinburgh airport. Off to annual visit to mother -in-law in deepest Walsall. Will miss the match on Sunday, but my bhoy and his ghirl will be there to represent the clan. I have signed the petition already. Enjoy yourselves.

     

    HH
