Until the last rebel
Any movement or individual with Glasgow Celtics best interests at heart will get our support and are more than welcome here.
As such we were delighted to give our front page and support to Celts for Change 2021.
Perhaps it’s always been the next battle that’s the most important but throughout our unbroken 133 year history it’s hard to see past this being the biggest clash between support and board yet.
Both sets of fans who rioted after witnessing finals fixed as draws to provide money grabbing replays were always going to come back and support their team, that’s no longer a given.
Jock said if we knew the half of it we would burn the park down, well now we know the half of it.
If we don’t, what we do know is enough.
The cheating is multi faceted.
On the field of play the bigots with whistles stop to low levels every week. Why just this week a(nother) possible leg breaker by Roofe in what is basically a dead rubber against a team theres no particular Ill will for, but yet here we go again, rough house tactics. With the main striker out for the exact same, having garnered a reputation for it.
Off the field of play forgetting self sabotage, the SFA and Gov have really let the mask slip this season, emphasized by a Dundee United player actually playing after testing positive, but yet both clubs arent quarantined anywhere near our allotted punishment, despite our trip being approved of I’ll advised.
When one takes into account the birthday party coverup it’s clear theres one rule for Celtic and one for the rest.
That’s not all though. Some of the highest offices of state themselves have been at best compromised and at worst complicit in the witchhunt that followed the death of the establishment club. The web is still untangling making it fully hard to comprehend at this point but the latest revelations surrounding the malicious prosecution of David Whitehouse (which included being treated worse than a terrorist by detectives whistling the billy boys) show just how murky the national ‘sport’ has become.
Please read this to see just how far the establishment were willing to go, which will end up costing the taxpayer another 50 million or so, and a (probably close to retirement) scapegoat his cosy position as is usually the way.
The national sport has plummeted, many would lay the blame at a certain knight of the realms door, but wondering how we got here isn’t going to help anything right now. Scottish football is officially a cesspool, probably the worst league in Europe that is about to get league titles claimed by about half the nation and disputed by the half with a brain.
Worst of all, our own club became ‘infected’,the rot surrounding us allowed to penetrate via the root of all evil, the love and lust of it filling the minds of those with the keys to the Park.
The triple choice mentioned by CFC2021 of accept, walk or rebel is very true, but given that almost every blog, podcast, supporter is very very unhappy with regards to the where the club finds itself right now and how exactly it tends to function, the percentage that would continue to financially support the PLC must be small.
With every ignored red card, other club not quarantined, every time 55 is broadcast unchallenged, acceptance of this farce becomes less and less of an option.
Accepting will lead to a half filled park, slowly but surely emptying all the way as any semblance of a stadium atmosphere disappears alongside quality on the park.
Accepting this cannot be an option, it’s probably the worst option of the three as it would drain you emotionally, the hurt of watching slow death.
So its walk or rebel folks.
Walking now doesnt make sense. The lie of the land needs established before the support at large really need to consider that most direst of options, the nuclear one. But the lie of the land can and will only be established after we rebel. Theres no point bailing out until we all know where we stand once and for all, with all the information we need available.
We havent reached that point yet.
Which leaves only one option,
It comes easier to some than others I admit, but I see it very very simply actually.
The Park often hears rebel tunes belted out with gusto, from it’s very first ‘God Save Ireland’ to the proscribed ‘Boys of the Old Brigade’ moving onto the beautiful and moving ‘Grace’ which was easily adopted by the Celtic family.
However, anyone can belt out the rebel tunes, but if it comes down to the crunch would those same singers rebel?
Well that time is here.
Put up or shut up time.
Rebellion or rebelling may be as little or large as the individual chooses or is comfortable with, but everyone must play their part here.
Until the last rebel,
