SHOOTING FISH IN A BARREL

Morning,all.

Sometimes you see something that just jumps out at you and you know what your next article is going to be about. The statement from Celtic FC about the Scottish League Cup Semi-finals fiasco is one such item. The sort of manna from heaven that allows the blog to damn near write itself,you might think. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

Well,yes and no. The fans had been demanding some action from the club over this for some time,and the latest suggestion of a late switch to Murrayfield for one of the ties-we still don’t know which one,what time,or even whether Murrayfield will agree to it,ffs!-finally saw the club moved to action. So kudos to them for listening.

It was as toothless and pointless as their last statement,which I think was about the Lord Nimmo Smith stitch-up.

But this is where the article stops writing itself,and some thought has to take place. My opinion of the Celtic board is well-known,so a diatribe will come as little surprise to anyone,but…

What else could the club really say about this? Their hands are tied by the ineptitude and mendacity of the governing body-ineptitude in scheduling the semis straight after a European week,and in the initial scheduling of two games on the same day,and mendacity in the way that Doncaster immediately stated that the scheduling had been done via agreement from all four clubs. Yes,he should be out the door for his latest screw-up,but he’s survived so many of them by now that you just know he’ll still be around when his haircut comes back into fashion.

 

Then there is the wording of parts of the actual statement. Some direct language being used,pointing out that there was no discussion over which game took place where,that the decision was already made. This was “both irrational and discriminatory”. All that was asked for re a difficult decision was “equity of treatment”. The decision is “lacking logic or reason”.

These are strong words,and I hope it heralds a new beginning in the relationship with the authorities,where our interests have not been well served in the past. I’d like to borrow some words from my friend MIKEINTORONTO over on CQN.

*

“The statement is a good start … but two thoughts:

1. A statement alone is simply a sop to the fans. If we were discriminated against, then action must follow.

2. If Celtic can issue a statement about this, it seems to put an end to the excuse that Celtic could not speak out about various issues in the past (on which Celtic have stayed remarkably silent) for fear of retribution, etc.”

*

If I may,I’d like to offer for debate the followings suggestions of action we could take.

We could refuse to handle tickets for the semi,or only a token amount.

We could refuse to handle tickets for away games in future,or only a token amount.Remember,at a number of grounds we are already badly served.

We could tell the SPFL that we will not be entering next year’s competition,or alternatively that we will play our development squad.

These would take some considerable discussion and agreement with supporters groups,and might lead to some friction in the short-term. But our revenge will be the laughter of our children,we know how to play the long game.

For too long,we have been playing it with one hand tied behind our back,and our legs strapped together.

_______________________

To more immediate things,and tonight’s match. Those basturts at UEFA have in for us too,what with the draws we are given these days! Red Bull Salzburg may well be one of the best teams in the competition,and are 100% domestically this season.

I couldn’t find any figures giving their total losses since Red Bull took over,but they clearly pay no heed to Financial Fair Play,and have an expensively-assembled squad who are obviously gelling well together.

This will be a very difficult game for us,even without the injuries piling up,as bliddy usual. I don’t do predictions any more-my Saturday coupon is testament to the sense in that!-but I’d take a draw. A defeat,well,it won’t kill us in the group,other games are probably more important. And I’d like to see us in Europe after Christmas-maybe even in Europe longer than the rest of the UK!-as it will give us a chance to give our myriad of new star signings from January some game time together.

A draw and no more injuries is probably as big a dream as my previous sentence,but I live in hope!

FOLLOWING today’s SPFL Board meeting, at which it was decided to ignore Celtic’s request for a ballot for the Betfred League Cup semi-final against Hearts at Hampden it will now take place at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on Sunday, October 28, with the Rangers game being held at Hampden later the same day, Celtic Football Club has released the following statement.

The SPFL Board’s decision not to hold a ballot to decide the venues of the forthcoming semi-final matches is both irrational and discriminatory.

Celtic recognised there was a genuinely difficult problem to resolve. All we asked for was equity of treatment – in other words, a simple ballot of which game went to which venue, so that all clubs would have a 50-50 chance of playing at Hampden.

We understand that those bodies consulted, including the police and broadcasters, had no preference whatsoever on which match should take place at each venue and, therefore, there was only one appropriate method of reaching a fair outcome.

The SPFL Board have been unable to produce logic or reason for turning down our modest request. Instead, they have arbitrarily decided that a chosen game should stay at Hampden and the other should go to Murrayfield.

The interests of our club and supporters have been subordinated to a diktat from the SPFL board which is as unfair as it was unnecessary.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell was excused from the SPFL board meeting due to the subject under discussion and for that he is truly thankful.

The SPFL Board consists of SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster, Chairman Murdoch MacLennan and independent non-executive director Karyn McCluskey

Ladbrokes Premiership representatives
Alan Burrows (Motherwell), Peter Lawwell (Celtic), and John Nelms (Dundee)

Ladbrokes Championship representatives
Warren Hawke (Morton) and Martin Ritchie (Falkirk)

Ladbrokes League 1 and League 2 representative
Iain Dougan (Stranraer)

Celtic´s largest individual shareholder Dermot Desmond (note not majority shareholder) of Celtic and current employer of the SPFL chairman and a 3% shareholder of Ladbrokes could not bring any influence to bear.

Desmond stated “”Rangers is a fantastic football club, it is one of the greatest football clubs in Great Britain, we’ve got to acknowledge that. If they wantto plaqy at Hampden then so be it. Our fans will take it up the arse willingly and enjoy it”

Awe Naw

The SFA are not involved in this decision. It is just the SPFL.

You know the body that Peter Lawwell has been making inroads into on our behalf in the vain hope that one day that it can upsurp the SFA.

When are you all going to wake up and realise that the Celtic PLC is not on your side.

They are ONLY on big businesses side.

That is the only reason that Dermot Desmond is involved with Celtic.

It brings influence, it carries kudos, The exact same reasons that John Reid, Paul Mc Bride, Lord Livi et all got involved.

As soon as the Police, Scottish Government etc get involved Celtic are going to turn you over to get your bellies tickled or videoed

Whatever suits

To be read in a WGS ..fountain of all knowledge type of way

See all these holy Joes that support Celtic. You know the type. The SVDP brigade on steroids as I used to label them. It´s all too difficult to organise a meaningful boycott. We´re far too stupit and fragmented and I canny do anyhing withoot ma mates gien me their approval. We have the CSA, the FCA,the FBI and the CIA, And the BBC, BB King And Doris Day Matt Busby…….smells like shite tay me

Haven´t given Celtic a penny since the 5WA. I made that decision about 3 nano seconds after I heard about it.

Do I have reservations about my judgement. NO
Has any Celtic fan ever told me that I am wrong to do so. NO
Can any Celtic fan tell me I was wrong to do so. IMPOSSIBLE

Celtic fork out hefty compensation sum to Hampden bosses after decision to switch Betfred Cup tie
The change of venue to Murrayfield has left Celtic fuming and with a heavy bill to pay.

Celtic last night savaged the SPFL and accused them of bias over their decision to switch their Betfred Cup semi-final tie against Hearts to Murrayfield that resulted in them having to hand over compensation cash to BT sports.

Seething Parkhead chiefs launched a blistering attack over the move that will see them take on the Jambos a few metres from Gorgie at 1.30pm on Sunday, October 28.

Aberdeen’s last four clash with Rangers remains at Hampden with an improved 4.30pm kick off on the same day and that prompted a furious response from the Hoops as the fixture farce rumbled on.

It was a day of twists in the incredible saga where:

Celtic blasted the SPFL for discrimination after their tie was handpicked by Neil Doncaster to move to Edinburgh.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers claimed staging the semi-final tie at Murrayfield gives Hearts an unfair advantage.
Jambos gaffer Craig Levein rejected those claims and told Celtic to play at Hampden on Saturday if they don’t like it.
And Record Sport can exclusively reveal that Celtic had to stump up a hefty compensation fee to greedy Hampden bosses.

Celtic have been most angered and said: “The SPFL Board’s decision not to hold a ballot to decide the venues of the forthcoming semi-final matches is both irrational and discriminatory.

“Celtic recognised there was a genuinely difficult problem to resolve. All we asked for was equity of treatment – in other words, a simple ballot of which game went to which venue, so that all clubs would have a 50-50 chance of playing at Hampden.

“We understand that those bodies consulted, including the police and broadcasters, had no preference whatsoever on which match should take place at each venue and, therefore, there was only one appropriate method of reaching a fair outcome.

“The SPFL Board have been unable to produce logic or reason for turning down our modest request. Instead, they have arbitrarily decided that a chosen game should stay at Hampden and the other should go to Murrayfield.

“The interests of our club and supporters have been subordinated to a diktat from the SPFL board which is as unfair as it was unnecessary.”

Celts boss Rodgers added: “It’s not neutral. You can look at it and it’s fair on everyone to have made a draw. I don’t think you can just assume that: Right okay, Murrayfield, well Celtic will just go there and play Hearts.

“I’m happy to play anywhere and it’s a lovely pitch at Murrayfield from what I see and what I’ve been told but for supporters and for clubs and for players and for everyone, transparency is important.

“I respect it’s unique but if you plan forward there is good chance you might come across this scenario. Then you prepare for it, the clubs know and everyone is calm.

“The minute they announced both games were at the same stadium people would have booked boats. Flights, travelling up from England or parts of Scotland and having to organise the cost of that.”

But Tynecastle counterpart Levein insists Hearts won’t gain an advantage despite using Murrayfield as a temporary home at the start of last term.

With very few Hearts players from a year ago still at the club, Levein can’t see why it would be an issue for Rodgers’ side.

He said: “Hardly any of our boys have played there. We’ve had about 12 games in total at Murrayfield and Celtic have played eight.

“So there would be no advantage for us. I’d be happy to play Celtic on the Saturday at Hampden if they want to do that, in fact after how I was treated by the SFA I would be almost happy if Rangers were to play at Hampden on the Saturday?

“There’s a part of me that says: ‘Hold on a minute, our supporters have to go to Hampden every year so why can’t Celtic supporters come to Edinburgh for one year’?

“We have to play on the Sunday to suit Celtic so it’s reasonable to expect them to come through here. The police will know what kind of scum they’re dealing with at Murrayfield.

“They had a Hearts v Rangers game there so a Hearts v Celtic tie shouldn’t hold any fears. I read a bit recently where Brendan said he thought Murrayfield was great.

“Maybe I’m a bit naive but I just assumed when our game came out of the hat first, we’d be the Saturday game. So if one game has to be moved to a different venue, I would imagine it’s the game that was meant to be on the Saturday.

“I really don’t mind. Having the two games at Hampden on the Sunday would have been an absolute disaster. How the SPFL didn’t recognise that and kept coming up with excuses as to why it should be allowed to go ahead is beyond belief.

“They said it was the best solution but patently, it wasn’t.”

Meanwhile, Record Sport can reveal yesterday’s development was only rubber-stamped after the SPFL agreed that Celtic should fork out for their semi-final that now WON’T be staged at Hampden.

And that fixed cash payment could swallow up as much as £100,000 out of the total gate receipts which will be raked in from the match at Scotland’s home of rugby.

News of Celtic´s clandestine secret pay-out throws yet another layer of controversy onto the farce surrounding the semi-finals which had originally been scheduled to take place at Hampden on the same day.

On Tuesday SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster claimed SFA counterpart Ian Maxwell had prompted a late change of heart from within the previously written and agreed upon contract by all parties on Hampden’s sixth floor which enabled him to wriggle out of a binding contract – and switch one of the ties across the country. just by staring at it for long enough.

And after confirming the venue change last night the SPFL said in a statement: “Following discussions earlier this week with Celtic, agreement was reached to release the SPFL from a legal contract which obliged them to host both of these cup semi-finals at Hampden which has now enabled the SPFL to stage the matches in Glasgow and Edinburgh on the same day.”

But now it has emerged that – rather than this being a gesture of goodwill – Celtic will STILL have to pay hand over fist after the SPFL forced through the change of plan.

SRU bosses were holding out for 20 per cent of all gate receipts which could leave the SPFL with a bill for almost £350,000 if the stadium is sold out.

But the SPFL do stand to make more money from taking one of the games to Murrayfield with a potential additional 15,000 ticket sales raking in around £375,000 to offset the hike in costs.

That sum will be increased again by a slice of the match-day catering revenue, which is not available to the SPFL from their contractual tie-up with Hampden.

The profit generated from the two ties is split between the four competing clubs and they are understood to be unhappy at being hit in the pocket as a result of the farce.

Good to see you stepping up to the plate,old bean. And back with a bang too!

Capturing the general mood. Well done.

It will not be a surprise if the ‘statement’ is the last the Celtic support hear about this.

A sop!

We will then go around the houses with some claiming that these things are best sorted out behind the scenes blah, blah, blah…

This board have got it sussed. They have done nothing about a range of far more significant issues.

100% buddy.

The bhoys here that travel to games are happy to have an away day at Murrayfeld.

Question remains…Why was that fixture selected?

We should be told, after all, sound reasoning will have been applied…

I imagine they would think that hearts might boycott hampden, whereas they might just help to fill Mfield, Aberdeen have to travel come what may and no way could they disrupt the huns, so they shaft us, that would have been their thinking, I think.

Gold

Yes it’s amazing that from the start of this farce the only club totally unaffected has been Sevco.
All other three have been subject to travel and/or venue uncertainty.

I fully expect Celtic to follow up on this on their return from EL duty.

The C.E. of the Celtic board who’s club’s turnover is twice as big as the whole of Scottish football combined cannot obtain justice for the support against Doncaster, MacLennan, Burridge of Motherwell and Nelms of bonny Dundee, newbies to the Scottish game, your having a laugh, right!! All the while he and his board associates sit around the boardroom table, where sits the Res.12 file, humming and hawing, chewing the fat and do SFA.

The SPFL Board consists of

1) SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster, (1 vote)
2) Chairman Murdoch MacLennan (1 vote)
3) independent non-executive director Karyn McCluskey 1 vote
4) Alan Burrows (Motherwell) 1 vote
5) Peter Lawwell (Celtic) 1 vote
6) John Nelms (Dundee) 1 vote
7) Warren Hawke (Morton) 1 vote
9) Martin Ritchie (Falkirk) 1 vote
10) Iain Dougan (Stranraer) 1 vote

Assuming that everyone voted apart from Celtic.

so lets presume that Doncaster, MacLennan and Mc Cluskey all voted (argued) for the option that is going to help them in the future with fiduciary matters. I.e a poll and save them 100,000K PURE PROFIT

so lets ASSUME that the 3 actual employees of the SPFL voted for it. It´s an assumption but if they voted against it THEN THATS AN EVEN BIGGER PROBLEM I hope you all agree

Peter Lawwell abstained leaving five others.

So at least 4 of the 5 voted against it. I.e voted against our proposal. When you consider the position of the other 3 then that´s too close to call all 5 MUST have voted against it. Which is fair enough. Our Proposal was voted down .... but why was it initially assumed that it would be us that would move ? THIS INITIAL ASSUMPTION IS WHAT WE SHOULD <b>FIRST</b> BE CONTENDING and we SHOULDNT BE DOING ANOTHER THING UNTIL IT IS EXPLAINED TO US AND IN WRITING

In fact we shouldn´t even have proffered a poll until that assumption was explained !

So when the poll was refused that Peter couldn´t rightly influence ? why was the DECISION made for it to be Celtic and not Rangers and what can Peter who must have been present by that stage have to report on the minutiae of these matters and why is Peter Lawwell not reporting it to us ?

I CANT HELP BUT FEEL THAT CELTIC ARE LIEING TO US YET AGAIN.

I cannot but feel that the coming AGM in November is the last chance saloon for Res.12 even the patience of a Saint cannot last forever. O.K. I am overly optimistic, I always see things through green tinted specs. But to sit and watch the AGM drivel on and not to hear questions being asked about it, is a wee bit soul destroying. Surely the Res.12 lads could get someone who is eloquent enough and who knows the subject inside out could ask the pertinent questions and get the questions answered. Some day Phil will write a book about it, everyone will blank it except us, we will reminisce, mull it over and think… if only.

Scottish League Cup semi-final scheduling conflict involving the Old Firm?
Well how incompetent do you have to be not to anticipate that, especially when your function is Old Firm protection racket?
As to the SPFL decision to move the Celtic V Hearts tie to Edinburgh on the same day that one is easy to understand.
Money and advantage.

A. Rangers benefit. Their fragility must be protected. Home game really.
B. Aberdeen benefit. More sheep can make it down to Glasgow in time. Bigger gate receipts at Hampden.
C. Hearts benefit. Home game really.
D. Celtic are the only team handicapped but most of their supporters are sanctimonious fannies who as a matter of principle at the unjustness of it all will show up anyway. Keep the faith and all that drivel. No monies lost Win Win.
Next?

I find it very sad that the Celtic support have allowed themselvs to be so brainwashed, they have bought the party line hook line and sinker that the balance sheet is what it’s all about, changed days from the early 90s when the Celts for Change were doing their bit.
The I’m alright Jack attitude has gotten in so deep I doubt it can be shifted, they are happy to be shafted by the looks of it, quite incredible.
The support of tomorrow won’t be so gullible, all this garbage about your kids will be Celtic supporters, no they won’t, they will follow something that is not so bigoted and corrupt, they won’t throw their hard earned into a corrupt game.

Gold

Why in the name of God would Celtic lie to the very people that sustain it?

It is absurd and quite frankly I am appalled that any Celtic fan would believe this.

If a poll was taken at a home game with a 60,000 attendance on “Do you trust the Celtic board, DD & PL – 59,000 would vote yes. The dissenting 1000 would be the same arseholes who booed Fergus McCann…..”they haven’t gone away you know”

In my opinion, as this farce continues, Celtic will be out of Europe by Christmas and Brendan will be the next manager of Manchester Utd. The Tim-hun business continuity plan will continue for the foreseeable future.

mags agree about us being out of Europe by Christmas, but don’t think anybody in the epl would take a chance on Brendan now.hh..
