Someone hide the typewriter

In a land that is accustomed to regularly biased sometimes outrageous statements, given the timing and feeling amongst the support, this one will take some time to be beaten.
It was the wrong words, at the wrong time, from the wrong person.
And it was totally unnecessary in my view.

 

After Sundays defeat we had the Celtic tv interview with Lenny, then we had the Celtic Park gathering, which brought forth a tweet from the boardroom which considered deflection.
Then we had the Records correct claim that DD wouldn’t take the plunge because of what they see as flourish mob behaviour, and yesterday seen the Captain plus big Christopher Julienne rolled with positive vibe interviews.
So with no real news to impart, and plenty enough interaction going on so as not be seen as hiding, I see no reason whatsoever to issue this statement in the first place.

 

Peter certainly did. With no imperative,tensions running high, every word scrutinized, the chance of super spreader events, IF one feels the need to open one’s mouth, then be extra careful with what is said.
But no.

 

Strength in Adversity is not a phrase Im accustomed to, not one I would use, and frankly smacks of a different mindset.
‘Strength in numbers’ and ‘Unity is strength’ jump to mind but never this particular saying.
‘All in this together’ or ‘United we can succeed’ would have connected much more with the rank and file fan, exactly who needs reassured right now with positive actions and not unwise words.

 

And what Adversity exactly?
There’s no gathered enemies we need to resolutely face, no attack from those who would revel in our demise, no bogey man.
There’s no adversity, there’s a trail of incompetency and complacency throughout our entire institute that has lead us to the point of squandering our hard built advantage. After year’s and years of being told all is fine. It’s a travesty that would be comical if it wasn’t so serious.

 

And then the very first line irked me.
‘Like all those with Celtics best interests at heart’ are fine fine words.
You recently advised all that voting against Res11 and before that Res12 was not in the companies best interests.
So who’s best interests exactly do you represent, as both aint cutting it and what happens when those interests clash, who prevails? Let me guess, not Celtic.
It’s debatable whether our interests do align to be honest, being as far removed from the rank and file as one could get.

 

The statement itself can easily be seen as a mistimed ‘Cmon now’ which only serves to antagonize when that happens to sum up the very feeling we have regarding boards actions, or lack of them.
It also somewhat ironic that the man shouting Cmon looks sure to be leaving soon.

 

Throwing up past glories is cheap when one of the tenets of football is you’re only as good as you’re last game.
Hiding behind the upcoming Cup final, something which may well see the ship run aground if a new Captain is not found, also shows a lack of understanding.
‘Early part of the season’ and ‘long way to go’ ring very hollow when it’s now December, and the form of our last ten games suggests we will win nothing.

 

Claiming the supports real concerns are being heard by the club raises eyebrows, as I must ask how exactly are they listening. Reading the comments under their tweets or the blogs every morning?
I would love to know how they consider themselves to have their ear to the ground, finger on the supports pulse.
Never ever gave me that impression before. Fans would have loved the bent refs tackled, anyone listening to concerns would know that.

 

The club is ripe for a restructuring, recent events will not only have highlighted that but hastened it. It’s clear we need a Public Relations department when that happens. Many would have wished for it, many more just did.

 

‘Moving forward together’ is wishful thinking at this stage, perhaps an oxymoron.
Do your jobs and we shall see.
Put Celtic first could easily be thrown right back at the boardroom.
The fans fully delivered for this season, wish the rest could say the same.

“women seem to see things straight off that we as men might pay no attention to.”

Oh aye,indeed. Bad memories of being told that I’d worn a certain outfit,say,a month ago. Did I? So what,who’s gonna notice?

Well,she did! And apparently that meant everyone else would too. And I couldn’t even tell her she was wrong,because I had no clue of what I wore a month ago. The only reason I know what I wore yesterday is because it’s hanging on my bedroom floor. And last week’s stuff will be in the washing machine.

Of course,a waste of time trying to explain that. All I got was-you always compliment me on what I wear,so what was I wearing last week?

Yet some people wonder why I’m still single? Figure out what my reply was,and there’s one of the answers!

Apparently,John Fogerty had to defend himself against plagiarism once. The case was brought by-himself!

John Fogerty v John Fogerty!

Seems when he left CCR,he signed over the rights to his songs,and the new copyright owners thought his new solo stuff was too much like they stuff they owned.

John Fogerty was the lead singer of the popular rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival. In 1970, while part of the group, he wrote the song “Run Through the Jungle.” Fantasy Records, the record label to which Creedence Clearwater Revival was signed, eventually acquired the exclusive publishing rights to the song.

Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded in 1972, and Fogerty began a solo career with another music label. In 1985, Fogerty published the song “The Old Man Down the Road”, which he released on Warner Bros. Records.

Fantasy sued Fogerty for copyright infringement, claiming that “The Old Man Down the Road” was essentially the music to “Run Through the Jungle” with new words. The case was litigated through a jury trial, and the jury found in Fogerty’s favor, rejecting the claim of infringement. Fogerty then sought attorney’s fees as authorized by the Copyright Act. The district court denied Fogerty’s request on the grounds that, according to the court, Fantasy had not brought its suit in bad faith and the suit was not frivolous. The Ninth Circuit affirmed, adhering to circuit precedent setting differing standards for successful copyright plaintiffs and successful copyright defendants.

Under the Ninth Circuit standards, prevailing plaintiffs generally obtained attorneys’ fees as a matter of course, but prevailing defendants had to show that the underlying suit was frivolous and brought in bad faith in order to recover fees. However, other circuits had different standards, for example, the Third Circuit favored an “evenhanded approach”.[1]

Because of a circuit split among the courts of appeals on the standards for awarding attorneys’ fees in copyright cases, the Supreme Court agreed to review the Ninth Circuit decision.

The history around their air force from the early days is interesting though. That might be well worth some digging. Really inventive methods used in its formation. Have a wee look too into plutonium imports overland in the mid 70s too.

might be an idea to use a throwaway device for the latter,and I’m not kidding.

Bobby, I did a foundation course in the Open University. It included History.
Page 1 Line 1 – What is History?

(most people assume that it is a factual record of the past). ie, THE past.!

Answer – History is a historian’s INTERPRETATION of past events.

Then again I am watching an American PBS show right now on the legacy of their national parks and many Americans realize their value.
American national parks Initiated by Scotsman John Muir.
It’s time the beauty of Scotland was protected by national parks
No fracking drilling deforestation fish farming etc
I heard that the north west coast of Scotland has astonishing unique shallow sea ecosystems discovered in the last 30 years where evolution has made Scotland’s coast unique ( something to do with the weather)
I remember seeing this once years ago in Poolewe. Also you can check out my post on Polkemmet and modern Scottish fracking.

ok cannot see Lenny even getting a point tomorrow but you never know. Anyway just delays the inevitable until the cup final.

BMCUW,

Not sure why this was omitted, but in case you didn’t know, Credence Clearwater Revival were responsible for the hit song, Bad Moon Rising. Not sure why that wasn’t considered important there. Especially considering it was written around the same three chords as the Stranglers’ “Lola”.
Status Quo then made a career of bragging about using this musical simplicity to make themselves rich. While also coming up with crackers like “In the Army Now”.
Personally, I don’t trust any of these rock and roll feckers. Too much plagiarism.

Unless you’re Big Country. For some reason, no cunt has the balls to try and copy them or Big Stuart’s guitar work….🤷‍♂️😁
