Sevco failed to win a game in March.
They failed when it came to the crunch part of their season.
A Cup exit to Aberdeen over two games. Draws in the League against an improving Hibs and Stevie Clarke’s Kilmarnock preceded our win last week.
Sevco’s failures in March might explain the hysterical reaction to our win last weekend. Two points out of a possible nine and a capitulation against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup.
Sevco’s bottle collapsed long before Celtic Park. Their second half performance wasn’t enough to save their season. James Forrest’s late goal sealed it and Scott Brown’s felt the projected anger of the Sevco team, management, support, the media and the SFA.
Celtic are still playing under pressure with the main focus on the Aberdeen game. An interim coach, a tired squad, an antagonistic media, numerous players rumoured to be moving, SFA incompetence…If Celtic get it together for the weekend, it will be a remarkable achievement, but don’t doubt this team…
This is when Champions are made. This is why we follow the Hoops. Sevco ‘blue it’ in March.This is our opportunity to write history and to right history.
For many Celtic fans, the pursuit of TEN IN A ROW is their personal Resolution 12. TEN would go in someway to ‘righting history’. Many just laugh at the same club nonsense. Rangers’ claim to Nine in a Row is laughable to them. The ‘Farryesque’ manipulation of accounts to allow Rangers to participate in the Champions League is just standard, run of the mill cheating. It’s been part of life for so long for the Celtic Family in Glasgow, that it’s almost expected.
The miracle of the shedding of the debt via liquidation while retaining the 54 Titles, was an act of such arrogance that the credibility of the administrators of game is now on a par with Saturday afternoon ITV wrestling.
The pursuit of TEN is this generation’s 1967.
A Treble Treble en-route would be a once in a lifetime achievement that would be up there with Johnstone, Murdoch, Lennox and Tully.
For many of us the wounds of the David Murray era run very deep. We’ll never forget Celtic greats like Tommy Burns and his sacrifice.The indignation of almost being forced into liquidation. The surreal season at Hampden.The supporters who paid to watch a rigged game…The triumphalism of the media, the mocking of neighbours and workmates. All of those painful memories are healing with this team’s exploits.
Despite the popular pursuit of TEN, the forensic work and diligence of the Resolution 12 campaign continues. With every cock-up of the game’s administrators, the necessity for some mature, reliable thinking at Hampden becomes more apparent. If you need any reminders of ask ; Scott Brown.
The evidence compiled by the Resolutioners is compelling and we’re approaching a watershed which could have positive implications across the entrenched, polarised divisions of Scottish society.
Can a way be found to compromise and devise a grown up, transparent system of football governance that delivers an administration that is isn’t encumbered by the bondage of sectarian thinking and the limitations of fear based traditions?
Ironically, Celtic and Sevco supporters have much common ground in their mistrust of the game’s stakeholders. A perusal of Celtic & Sevco cyberspace usually reveals very similar concerns and mistrust of the game’s legislators.
Admittedly, many of the grievances voiced are from partisan blue or green perspectives but there is common ground nonetheless.
If fear prevails and if the SFA aren’t ready to grasp the opportunities presented by Resolution 12.The chasm between the ‘customer and the supplier’ will widen and the loser will ultimately be the game itself.
Enough of the pragmatism?.
While browsing in a local St Vincent de Paul shop on Friday, I stumbled across a copy of Tina Turner’s version of ‘Simply The Best’.
(As with all things in Sevcoland, there’s an issue with provenance, Tina didn’t record the original. Bonnie Tyler recorded the original.)
What struck me was the prophetic ‘B’ Side of Tina’s version…
“Bold & Reckless.”
Couldn’t someone have done a little bit of due diligence and checked the ‘B’ side before blasting it out at Ibrox?
Oops it’s the auld Rangers we’re talking about they were easily duped and prone to distraction over there.
