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!

    Love the Vatersay Boys….what they lack in musical ability they more than make up for with enthusiasm and feeling.



    Not being patronising…I can’t play a note – but I know what I like.

  5. Went fishin once.



    Of the coast of St Andrews, Sunday morning, mental hangover.



    Rod dropped into the sea, and that’s it.



    I am trying to catch something so I look at it, mutilate it, then throw it back.



    I was sick once or twice, making the trip for my pals.



    I took the rod out, huddled down, and watched other nervous people.

    Half east coast highlands half western isles with a part primary schooling in Glasgow I really appreciate what’s happening now in the Scottish traditional music scene. Ma bairns are part of it.


    Poor Calum Kennedy that I posted earlier was the epitomy of those who sold for gold their musical heritage in the sixties I’m afraid.



    Anyway, I still know how to get a fish or two. The shooting I never took to. Last thing I shot was at the age of 14 – a milker rabbit and I buried it. Never took any pleasure from killing. Don’t need to do it when I can buy it easier and cheaper than doing it myself.

    Not very fair on the supporter who has to travel from afar and has to arrange travel not knowing wether he has a ticket or not

    Don’t get me wrong, I am a fully paid up carnivore.

    Samaras’ first goal of the 2006–07 season came on 20 September, despite this, City lost 2–1 in the FA Cup to League One side Chesterfield.[36] Four days later, Samaras scored twice, as Manchester City beat West Ham United 2–0. City had won just three of their previous 16 games, and the club, as well as Samaras, had been receiving a lot of criticism from fans.[37] In December, Pearce publicly stated that Samaras would have to ‘toughen up’, if he wanted to be a success in the Premier League. He said that Samaras’ all round game wasn’t good enough, and that he would need to learn to pass the ball better and compete more effectively. Some fans had criticised Pearce for signing Samaras, along with other foreign players, who had not settled in well enough to the English game.[38] On 2 January, Samaras came on as a half-time substitute, and scored twice, as they beat Everton 2–1.[39] In March, Daily Mirror reported that the reason Manchester City were struggling so badly was that they didn’t have any quality strikers. They went on say that the £6million spent on Samaras looked like “very bad business” especially compared to the £2.5 million Blackburn Rovers had spent on Benni McCarthy. They also described Samaras as looking like a “fish out of water” as he struggled to adapt to the different style of play in England.[40] On 10 March, defender Richard Dunne said that he felt the reason that City were performing so badly was that their foreign players, including Samaras, were letting the side down by not working hard enough. Samaras responded to his criticisms, by saying that he felt it was Pearce’s fault that he wasn’t playing well because the manager wasn’t giving him a regular run of games. He also said that he felt a lot of criticism stemmed from his high transfer fee, saying that it is normal for expensive players to be criticised more than most when they don’t play well. Samaras also said that he had come through tougher periods than this and his self-belief would not be shaken, he said that his desire was to become a Champions League player. Daily Mail pointed out that, despite the criticism, Samaras had scored more goals than any other City player and that he was also responsible for the few highlights of their season.
