Your responsibility

A cold hearted observer with no skin in the game would have noted the following regarding our club of choice.
 
 
Terrible managerial hire,
Terrible signings,
Bad start,
Extremely bad middle,
League lost and manager leaves,
Head honcho gets involved and rings the changes.
 
 
Let’s focus on the last part.
According to urban myth a deep dive was ordered into our recent affairs under you know who.
We’ve since seen,
Keano used as smokescreen presumably with a nod from buddy Dermot,
Enzo was used as a smokescreen presumably with a nod from buddy Fergal,
Four high profile structural departures,
A stinging rebuke of an interview from our majority shareholder,
John steadying the ship with one Championship 21 year old on a pre-contract confirmed.
 
 
When all the above is brought together and studied, I get the impression the Macroom man has discovered there is rot at the club, and held more than a few responsible, plus is determined to get a little hands on, plot a course for better or worse.
 
 
All of these need not necessarily be a bad thing at all, but it does beg the question just how bad where things, and does this mean a more hands on approach in general?
 
 
What was there to discover should be the starting reference point. The non interfering boardroom of friends is one, the cliques in the dressing room as revealed by young Cameron Harper is two, but one suspects the third and final straw was the jaw-dropping list of projects signed that played less than 30 games for the club.
Over one hundred million blown and that’s being conservative, and this a club in a backwater supposedly different,very different.
 
 
That’s enough to completely buy and setup a feeder/sister club elsewhere.
Enough to build a hotel with restaurant for visiting fans AND complete that Barrowfield rejuvenation project which would finally see us step into the modern world with a full size indoor training pitch.
It’s a fortune in modern Scottish football terms and it’s gone like the wind.
 
 
Did this sting Dermot, possibly prompt the verbal lash out that all is okay in his hands and in his hands the club shall stay?
He had realized how poorly run we were, but being stubborn and prideful won’t admit it’s a shambles to all Tims?
When you think about it, he’s probably right, throwing the hands in the air and yelling it’s a basket case can’t and won’t help.
 
 
What will help though is real strong proper leadership right at the very top.
If the Peter years have resulted in Dermot now giving extra attention to the club and it’s running then done it, that is probably a good thing.
A hurt Dermot with the desire to put things right is exactly what’s needed to be honest, for he can deliver.
 
 
But all of these are an admission things weren’t right, hence the need for change. Some knew before others, some now know the signs, but what looks very apparent is that the one person who really needed to know this sad and sorry fact has finally cottoned onto it.
 
 
Now that he knows things aren’t right, it’s on him to fix it. Please never forget that.
We wont find out just how bad it was, but we will see the response to the rot that was allowed to set in under his stewardship.
He knows we are watching.
A true and long standing rebuild and repair job could be his legacy rather than a blown ten and Peters failed Projects.
A true Celtic fan, just as he claims, will know the correct path.
History will judge if that’s the one chosen.
Over to you Dermot.

Nana my old man said to many people at that game so yer no going …turns out the crowd at the Aberdeen game was just as huge
I was dancing on the 3 wheel invalids car roof when we scored .

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

I don’t think half the guys in those blue invalid cars were disabled think some got them to get a freebie into the big games

They wee blue disabled motors could carry some amount of cans. The drivers were all steamin. That was their only disability πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

A kinda don’t really care how gorgeous he was. Would rather have an ugly dame. 😁

Talking about billionaires was reading about to young Irish brothers who set up a payment company when they were 19 and 21. Ten years later that company was valued at 92 billion yesterday

Nana
Hopefully Tims that fancy a stake in Celtic 😊

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

Messi and Lewandowski in the hoops for starters. Need goals in oor team.

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

Mike in Toronto

Messi and Lewandowski as Celtic’s front two and all bets off. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

Mike in Toronto

DD

a true fan … taking one for the team… although as much of a fan as Nana, who is apparently taking two for the team…

Nana

Do you know the definition of bigamy?

Proof that two wrongs dont make a right!

(if LiT were online, this is the point where he would shake his head and say ‘and you wonder why you’re single…’)

Nana Mouskouri C.sc

Legal advice Mike would I have to consummate the marriage to get my share when I divorce them

MIT
Today Clydebank was very sunny and bright about 8 degrees. One blast of the Arctic wind and it felt -8 degrees outside.

Just before I go … why does any team need four strips in a season? And why do they need to be so ugly?

A wee shout for Robert MacIntyre at the Masters. I’ve met him a couple of times.
Smashing young guy, and a serious Tim.
125/1 to win. I’ve been really daring and had Β£1 e/w
