All Quiet On The Western Front,,,
It’s been a quiet week at The Good Ship Celtica,as we gratefully lapped up the huns celebrating their first trophy in the company of their police benefactors. Took everyone’s eye off the ball that the main facilitators of their success are highly paid employees of our club.
When you have two,three,five times the income of a competitor,when they are running a market stall-true!-while you have a superstore,it sure takes some doing to cock it up to the extent that Celtic did. I honestly don’t know whether to nominate Lawwell for a Ratner Award or a Darwin Award. I doubt he would thank me for either of them,so I’ll nominate him for both!
But is that fair? Is it fair that I hold Lawwell responsible for this season? Is it fair that I’ve been on his case since he told Martin O’Neill that his replacement for Henrik was an on-loan dud from Wolves? Or that I vehemently disagreed with him trying to wreck the career of the best centre back in thirty years,along with one or two others?
Yes,it is. It isn’t just fair comment,it is something that an increasing number of us have decided to be true. Lawwell has been a disaster for our club,that it has taken so long for the club to realise this points to a failure of governance.
Celtic have a new CEO arriving. His first step should be to get rid of everyone in the board room,all the guid pals appointed by Lawwell to enable him to run the ship like Captain Bligh.
Meantime,the fans are concerned about a new manager. I’m not too impressed by the candidates so far,but I’m honestly more concerned about the new CEO. I’ve no reason to doubt him,but the problem is that he needs to be strong. To be in control. Yet he also needs to delegate,and in a company which isn’t used to it.
Celtic may or may not win the league next season,depends on how quickly we recover. The carnage that Lawwell has wrought on the Plc and on the FC will take longer.
