Decisions, decisions over the renewal forms!
You never know is taking a quick peak at the best blog in Celtic cyberspace, so in the off chance ‘the Company’ is looking in thought I would offer some totally free help with drafting the ‘pitch’ address from on high to be included within the upcoming season ticket renewal forms.
With everything up in the air and the previously stuck revolving door finally oiled and finally rotating again, it’s actually hard to decide which tone to take, the ten being a previously easy target.
This next one though, it may just be the most important renewal letter in a generation, so I decided to draft two different options to be taken into consideration.
One is the easy option, whilst the other would be painful to some yet more profitable over all.
Any true Celtic man will know which is which, I hope you choose wisely.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I pen this renewal letter with a heavy heart, not only due to it being my last but also because it comes not at the crest of a wave but at its trough.
Whilst our FAITHFUL servant Neil Lennon manfully soldiers on with his fantastic young talented squad, we must concede achieving ten titles in a row is unlikely, a most bitter pill to swallow.
However we must look elsewhere, four trebles in a row is a feat unrivalled, some would say at least the equal of ten, being twelve some might say better..
Although I will not leave with the Championship in its rightful place, the company did smash the fabled 100 million turnover under my watch, something that took almost 15 years of experience at the helm which allowed Celtic to move to the next level.
And that’s why I must ask you to renew, the club needs a full rebuild, and young Dominic will need all the help he can get.
Only TOGETHER can we overcome deep deep disappointment, there is strength in numbers and if we are UNITED we will rise like the fabled phoenix out of the ashes.
Like myself, Dominic also sat on a supporters bus holding a season ticket, he truly knows this clubs history and more importantly knows you.
I myself am delighted to be handing over the reigns to such a talent, who has the skills and vision needed to keep the club competitive in this modern age.
So I ask you all to dig deep this year especially, and witness the new Glasgow Celtic emerge showing that EVEN IF KNOCKED DOWN WE WILL ALWAYS GET BACK UP!.
That starts with you, our world famous support who HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE THERE!
Only a season ticket guarantees you entry into the draw when fans are allowed back, so snap yours up quick and,,,
WITNESS THE FIGHTBACK LIVE!!!.
My fellow supporters,
It is bittersweet that I pen this renewal letter.
As a lifelong fan of Glasgow Celtic who held a season ticket and worked all week looking forward to watching the world famous green and white hoops run out that weekend, I am more than aware of the size and stature of the club.
It is an absolute honour to join and I promise to deliver the very best I can at all times.
However, my arrival comes at a low ebb I admit.
I assure each and every one of you I also hurt at what we have seen this season.
The quest for a historic tenth title was a bridge too far, bringing much disappointment.
As a social media user myself I am aware of the fans feelings, and their wish for change has been answered.
I believe in a different strategy than the previous board members and that is one of togetherness, as such fan engagement is my number one priority.
On that front, upon taking the position I intend to undertake a deep dive into the clubs affairs during and since the death of our historic rival, with the aim of presenting the clubs fans with as much information as possible regarding our own actions or lack of.
Due to the nature of this investigation, I cannot put a timescale on its publication but it is my hope this will help mend the relationship between the PLC and the clubs fans.
It is also our hope that said dossier will kickstart a high level inquiry into the running of the national sport, which today has a very low level of customer satisfaction.
There are numerous areas of concern throughout the wider game for not only our club but other clubs also given the co-dependency factor of the national sport, and without action the game risks alienating its lifeblood.
Change is necessary on many levels.
I personally recognize the importance of transparency with the clubs lifeblood, and would like to state for the record I adopt an open door policy with zero preference given to any media outlet.
Any member of the Celtic family with concerns can contact the Park and request a meeting with a member of staff, your concerns will be taken onboard at the top level and if necessary acted upon I assure you all.
About myself and my role within our beloved club.
On top of my open door policy aiming to address the disconnect between supporter and board, I intend to upgrade the supporters match day experience, one area that has a fantastic base with the Celtic Way and also the cutting edge lighting at our Park.
Under my watch, the supporter comes first always. Expect the range and quality of available amenities to the fan in the stadium to vastly improve, with a world famous food company partnership to be announced in the near future, who will open up new sales areas within the park and offer a zero trans-fat menu to reflect the modern fan, with emphasis on baked rather than fried goods delivered in environmentally friendly packaging.
All items will be sensibly priced with reductions to all unemployed and the elderly.
Of course the matchday experience means very little without you, who have consistently drawn praise throughout the footballing world. From now on we shall endeavour to have a fully packed stadium for all games, with any unsold seats given to local unemployed on a first come first served basis until capacity once the match has officially kicked off.
So for the first time I ask for your help and your trust. Your financial help by renewing once again, and your trust that under my watch things will change for the better.
I fully understand any harbouring and misgivings regarding renewal so in the near future the Club shall announce a series of open Zoom meetings with myself and others answering questions live. No subject shall be off the table.
Scottish football and its members have just lived through the lowest period in the national sports history.
As the CEO of the nation’s biggest and most successful football club, restoring the games integrity falls larger upon my shoulders and I assure each and every supporter whether near or afar that I truly do indeed have our clubs best interests at heart.
God Bless the Famous Glasgow Celtic, the Pride of Ireland!
