You insane, insulting and illogical low intellect rabble


I admit to some admiration for the Daily Record which today came out with an outstanding article on the integrity and honest which inspires their values.  A truly inspirational piece, although somewhat undermined by an angry, if entertaining, rant against social networking sites and football forums, which are apparently characterised by “insane, insulting and illogical.. messages”, with a “lack of intellect”.

It’s good to see they don’t take themselves too seriously.

We also got the most rewarding argument to justify the accusation that Celtic “reneged” on an agreement to pay Rangers ticket money in advance of this month’s game at Ibrox.  The Record state that Celtic agreed to pay in advance as long as Rangers were not in administration (Celtic may tell a different story), which Rangers now are.  However, as Rangers issued an invoice for the tickets before going into administration, the Record argue that Celtic have, in fact, reneged as their payment didn’t reach Rangers before the administration date, 40 days in advance of the game.

They decline to claim evidence that paying more than 40 days before the game was part of the agreement, but with a startling command of intellect and logic, overlook this fact when claiming “the agreement must still have been broken”.

Don’t even try to figure this one out, it is logic way above your intellect.  It remains to be seen if it has outfoxed Celtic.

The newspaper cites conversations between Rangers staff to back up their story.  No wonder that lot ended up in such a state.  Don’t think this is a concerted effort to undermine your football team, you might feel that way, but, again, it’s a problem with your intellect.

    A shout out to anyone in the Swindon area. There is a Charity ‘ An Evening with John Hartson’ at Swindon Town FC on Thursday 22nd March 7pm. Price is £15 per ticket which includes supper, comedian and auction including Celtic items. Proceeds go to Great Western Hospital Breast Cancer Unit.



    Spoke to the organiser last night who said she contacted him as he was a friend of a friend. She said he could not have been more accomodating and willing to help the unit. Speaks volumes for the guy.



    Would be good to show BBJ the Celtic support in the area. If interested you can contact me through Paul67, who will forward you my email.









    Celtfish……that’s only an hour away from me…



    Paul67…can you send me Celtfish email address please….

    Never heard it called that before.

  4. David Stoker, director at Livingston had this to say about Traynor:



    Reading through the Monday papers. Most striking thing is the utter waste of newsprint that Jim Traynor’s column is. Self indulgent p**h.

    Paul67 – do we really care what the DR says? There credibility went a very very long time ago – free publicity – I would not have given them any.

  7. The Honest Cover-up on

    Surely the best way to end this boring episode that Traynor refuses to let go is for Lawwell to ban him from Celtic Park. Would a single Celtic supporter across the world object?


    I failed to realise, mind you, that all the lawyers, accountants, doctors, business owners, political activists and students that post here every day were in fact of a “low intellect”. I think I’ll go and buy the Daily Record and some other comic books. Perhaps the high brow reading material will help me raise my game.

  8. Over on FF its almost jelly and ice cream all round, they are convinced the one month pay reduction scheme by the players is a sign that a new ‘whyte knight’ is waiting in the wings, ready to move in and save them by the month end.



  9. I’m sure (99%) i read somewhere that the final payment for the Hearts player Wallace, isn’t actually due till June this year.



    So at the moment Hearts are not due any money, however they will be come June 2012.

    Doing some thinking about rangers(in administration) and am I right in saying that Duff and Phelps have been there 3 weeks and done NOTHING so far to cut costs, they cannot even make the decision as to which staff are getting sacked.



    was Craig Whyte who rushed these guys in to thwart HMRC appointing an administrator. All we have heard from them is chasing this up, can’t find that out, still analyzing data. The only people to leave have been Smith and Russell and when you look at the headlines they were made ‘redundant’ which implies a pay off.



    Is it just me or are they dragging their heels long enough to get rangers liquidated which plays right into CRAIGWHYTECSC hands.




    They are dragging their heels cos they are on £600 an hour. simple as that. Let’s face it liquidation is inevitable. You know it, I know it, the man in the moon knows it. There are no future income streams worth talking about. And for that the tax case is irrelevant in whether they liquidate or not. . But as long as they can delay the death , then the more money they make and the more fun we have.



    Dignity FC you have done yourself up like a kipper, jumped in the frying pan and Craigy bhoy and his administrator team are cooking you on a nice slow gas.

    Technically yes if not due payment until June 2012 but still a creditor in terms of accounts as there will be a contingent liability in the books for the amount owed. If liquidated before June 2012, Hearts would still be entitled to that money (or whatever share is available following sale of assets.)

    Paul67 –



    Another succinct piece.



    When it comes to irresponsibility no one can touch the tabloid press, and the Daily Record has a shameful history in this regard.



    At a time when Rangers fans are doing what they do best, blaming everybody other than themselves for the mess they are in, and looking to lash out – the Daily Record is stirring up further hatred just ahead of the next Glasgow derby.



    Jim Traynor and his ilk are in the business of antagonising people and will not be satisfied until they have more blood on their hands, which they most certainly will in the next few weeks because of their agenda.



    They have learned nothing from the Neil Lennon episode and the part they played in demonising our manager to the point where he and others were sent parcel bombs. There were at least three previous incidents involving Lenny which should have led to the media taking more responsibility, but instead they continued to stir-up the hatred and then feigned outrage when lunatics started posting explosives.



    Thankfully, the tabloid press are on borrowed time – just like Rangers (In Administration).

    So you should be afraid


    It Celtics time, we dont diddle and our players get paid


    And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy


    Throw your arms around the world at Celtics time



    But say a prayer



    Pray for the dumb huns


    At Celtics time it’s hard, but well when we’re having fun


    There’s a world outside your window


    And it’s a world of dread and fear


    Where the only water flowing is the bitter p*** of bears


    And the Celtics bells that ring there are the clanging


    chimes of doom


    Well today thank God it’s you instead of us



    And there won’t be snow in Ibrox this Christmas time


    The greatest gift you’ll get this year is life


    (Oooh) If Murray ever shows


    He´ll be behind closed doors


    Do you know it’s Celtics time at all?



    (Here’s to you) raise a glass for every hun


    (Here’s to them) that informed the current bun


    Do they know it’s Celtics time at all?



    top of the world


    top of the world



    top of the world



    Let them know it’s Celtics time again



    top of the world


    Let them know it’s Celtics time again

    Fantastic work from you these past few weeks. Thanks for keeping us so well informed. Hope you`ve enjoyed your jelly and ice cream. A quick question. How long do you think HMRC are going to sit back before taking action to have duffer and duffer removed from this process ? I have no doubt they will be watching things unfold, or not, as seems to be the case. Was just wondering as things have long since passed a joke with these idiots.


    hail hail tae ye. lbb

  20. Auldheid, it is a desperate line to peddle.



    dirtymac, your integrity remains intact.



    Sheik Yerbouti, aye.



    Honest Mistake, that works.



    The Moon Bhoys, I hear you, but the appeal to intellect was irresistible.

  21. Paul67 et al



    No doubt the Daily Record will be telling us that they figured David Murray was a scheister all along, with Jim Traynor exclaiming that he suspected that it was mutton dressed as lamb washed down with a bottle (or two) of cheap plonk!


    Journalistic integrity at Record? As Groucho Marx might have asked, surely that is a contradiction in terms?

    “Traynor for me stands apart from the rest of the people employed to write about or comment on Scottish football in that he appears to be a genuinely unpleasant individual.”



    I know what you mean but, for me, Keevins has gone beyond the annoying and irritating as time has passed.

  23. How much does it cost to stage a football match?



    Police costs, electricity costs (if night game, floodlights don’t come for free), stewards costs etc etc



    Croke Park in Dublin holds 83,000 and I’ve heard it said that it needs an attendance in the region of 25,000-30,000 just to break even due to the costs of staging a game.



    Ibrox might not be so bad but even say 10,000 is needed to break even, that means 40,000 x £20 (as unlikely anyone would pay more for a friendly) = £800k. Split in 2 is £400k each. hardly going to keep the wolves at bay for very long.




  24. Will the Ibrox branch of the Tesco Extra be the largest in the multi-national retailers corporate portfolio or is that too much to expect?
