Your supporter groups, your club, your streets


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!

    Rascar Capac,



    Kirst’s Dad’s song’s a cracker…..but for me the Corries version is blessed in another era.


    Much prefer it straight, unaccompanied and from the heart!

  5. Rascar Capac you gave me a reminder of the gentle side of life and music when you referrred me to Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole.


    Made me cry.

    Rascar 01.43, thats what my bhoy is gonnay look like if I keep taking him to coias before our home games.



    Saturday he had fish and chips, a 14″ pepperoni pizza and a bowl of minestroni with bread and a big cheesy crouton, It took one and a half hours . I needed oxygen just watching this marvelous thing happen. It also cost me £49. Greedy wee bassa, I’ll take it oota his poakit money.



    He’s being detoxed (starved) as I type.

  11. My brother, when I phoned after Henrik’s first appearance at Parkhead said this;


    “Ntassoolla, this guy’s better than di Canio”



    High priase then.


    Scant praise now.



    6 weeks later I disagreed.


    My brother’s answer was short and prophetic;


    “Gie ‘im a chance.Ee’ll learn ‘ae stey oan eez feet!””

  12. ACGR



    I’m a wee bit like that.



    I remember biting my fingers in a pizza frenzy.

    He was better than DiCanio, but I thought. DiCanio was the most entertaining player I have ever seen.



    Ahead of McStay, Collins, Henke, and McCourt.



    I saw Dalgleish once, peeking behind thousands of teuchtars, so that dusnae count.
