Quantcast

Your supporter groups, your club, your streets

1022

The umbrella group, Fans Against Criminalisation, issued a statement yesterday (kindly published here by Joe O’Rourke on the Association site) which details a number of events in response to Saturday’s policing on Gallowgate, and the resulting response from the SNP government.  Witnesses are invited to give evidence on Saturday (23rd March), with three protests planned next month.

To the relief of all, I’m sure, the statement also records that issues surrounding meetings two organisations had with the Club in November have been resolved.

Our Club and supporters groups are led by the kind of people you would trust with your most precious valuables, as many of us do.  They each strive in new and innovative ways to herd cats in the right direction, with remarkable success.  The tasks, carried out by hundreds of Celtic fans, of running buses, chasing tickets and navigating the impossible political challenges, is often thankless.  I know a few who wonder why they bother.

They bother because they care.  The office-bearers dedicate even more time looking after the common interests.  There are more Celtic heroes than those who wear the hoops.

I hear Fifa president, Sepp Blatter, has appointed Jeffrey Webb, currently head of CONCACAF, as chief of a newly created Fifa body to fight racism in football.  Mr Webb is a director of one of the largest banks in the Cayman Islands, known for its…. unique standards of propriety.  Nice.

Quick word for Tommy in Glasgow…. brilliant!

  1. A Bowmore story.

     

     

    It was a typical East Kilbride winterafternoon at Westwood HIll park circa 1981/2.

     

     

    Sleet mixed with snow with neither able to land because of the freezing gale force wind. Perfect football conditions as ODA met some other mob from some other Government office also swanning off at tax payers expense (for Philvus).

     

     

    Anyhoo my boss who could not look you straight in the eye as one of his eyes looked at his right ear and the other at my nose, offered me a wee dram from a bottle of what looked like liquid peat. He was from Islay as was his auld faither who worked in the Bowmore distillery.

     

     

    “Ye’ll no get this in the shoaps” he said as he poured me a wee glass. I sniffed, I tasted and I drank.

     

     

    His wandering eyes straightened, the wind dropped, the snow stopped, the sleet melted into dandelion seeds, the sun came out and the parkie provided two deck chairs to watch the game.

     

     

    Some stuff that Bowmore whisky.

    Fred C, lots of posts have asked about the tickets and a few posters have said the notice has been posted to SB holders. I’ve had nothing yet but there’s plenty of time.

     

     

    Maybe they’ve only been posted to the mincers.

  11. Right guys and gals, brief though it was, I’m off to bed, new born lambs and other expectant ewes to attend to in the early hours. PLEASE NO JOKES OR PUNS. Ha.

    Fred, that sounds pretty conclusive to me then. I’ll wait on the post, shite as it is and given I’m up to my knees in snow, it may take some time.

     

     

    The ticket office normally do a decent job of sorting out the tickets………TIN HAT AND IN THE BUNKER.

  20. A Ceiler Gonof Rust,

     

     

    They said they never even had prices so how could we letter people…we will see.

     

     

    We have all been season ticket holders fae the year dot, yet not one of us have had a letter…Hmmmmm.

  21. Does anyone remember?

     

    Before we needed guidance.

     

    Before the advent of the anti-bigotry professionals. Whose livelihood is embedded in their job description.

     

    When we knew our own minds

     

    When we could think for ourselves.

     

    And were allowed to.

     

     

    On entering a man’s house.

     

     

    “Mixed company. No party songs.”

     

    I knew what that meant. I still do.
