JimmyNotPaul and Twists….I hope you’re both well. You’ve been missed on the blog, give us a wee shout to let us know you’re well!

Manchester United has missed out on a proposed new training kit deal worth £200m over 10 years after the Manchester-based company The Hut Group had concerns about the supporters’ campaign to boycott the club’s commercial partners in protest at the Glazers’ ownership.😲

Leason there Bhoys – Fan pressure really does work. Perhaps if our own supporters’ groups were to leave their begging caps at home, stop tugging their forelocks, and become a wee bit more militant, well a lot more actually, who knows what could be achieved. A boycott won’t work — really, tell that to the Glazers😈

McCaff some good music last nite- fondly remember Furs, China Crisis then, Difford & Tillbrook at QM, hard to recall everything from over 35 years ago … crazy Furstenburg promotions … a full case of wee 33cl bottles for about £5

Loads more bands there, wee Mark had some fantastic connections to the best touring bands.

Excellent point, well made.

The biggest lesson from ’93/94 was that meetings and stunts made little to no difference.

Holding back cash was all they understood.

We hear that circumstances have changed with Shareholders dripping in cash, can easily withstand a few setbacks. Sit it out.

Only When that cashflow/graph starts to point South East will they make significant changes.

Withhold their supply – watch them react.

It might take a wee bit longer this time.

Sorry I didn’t get back to you but fell asleep 💤 to watch the boxing this morning.
Don’t really know that area but some of the pubs sound, just let’s say, interesting !!!!!

Another interesting pub that I was in , a long time ago, was the Morven in Balornock.

Anyone ever went there ?????

After is under shitshow of a season could Lawwell and the plc Board really be so inept as to have no foolproof plan as we head into this summer? Could it really be possible after all this procrastination Howe will turn us down and we’ll be left with Kennedy?

Is it really possible we’ll lose up to 20 first team squad players (Eddy, Ajer, Christie, Broony, Duffy, Laxalt, Dembele, Moi, Hendry, Shved, Bayo, Klimala, Griff, Bitton, Barkas, Kenny, CalMac, Rogic, Bolingoli, N’tcham) with no DoF or manager in place to replace them?

Is it a realistic scenario that season book sales and therefore club income fall off a cliff?

Emphatically yes to all of the above.

They really are frauds.

I don’t expect our board to have anything other than a reactionary short term plan.
I expect the fans loyalty will see them deceived again.
The real impact of DD and PL’s disastrous tenure will leave us in the long term wilderness.
Aiding and abetting a criminal partner who would gladly see us gone will come back to bite us as their ascendancy grows with the help of the media and best wee country.
These custodians who broke us have no semblance of introspection and will see our demise as caused by ungrateful fans.
Until ownership changes we will remain a European minnow wallowing in past glory.

Saltires…I don’t remember wee bottles of Furstenberg, 500 or 564ml is my memory? I do remember them as cheap as chips though – 50p a bottle at the end of term do’s. Wandering around the QM with an armful of Foosties to save you waiting in the bar queue. A false economy as it happens cos you just drink more, quicker!!
Billy Bragg, Hank Wangford, The Red Wedge Tour , The Pogues, Marc Almond, the Kane Gang…yeah too many to remember through the years and the beers!!
We used to go to the GUU some nights too. The DJ was a guy (Jim maybe?) who delivered Lawson’s pies and sausages into Willie Low’s PRW. He would allow me to run the disco lights…well, until he got complaints about people having fits and seizures on the dancefloor!! 😳 That last bit was made up!!!😉

I’d forgotten both BMX Bandits and Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, bands I also saw later in the Barras and the Pavillion. I remember Douglas of the BMX’s showering the crowd in the Pavillion with sweeties like it was a Christmas Pantomime!! Re the Pogues…I would also say that one guy in the band never played an instrument that night he just cracked the Tennents Special tray of his head for hours! And, I would also say there were about 13 Pogues on stage that night!!

Every day for the past 72 days I’ve been checking newspapers, tv and t’internet for news of the new manager we all knew we have needed since last September.
Every day I’m disappointed that there is nothing, nada, zilch in that regard.
Worse still is the radio silence coming from the board.
It’s utterly depressing now.
This so called board are treating the fans/customers/client base like SHITE on their shoe

Story doing the rounds ‘Apparently all outdoor restaurants and pubs which surround George Square have to close next Saturday as Rangers fans are having another unofficial party. Police are facilitating it and told the businesses they have to close to avoid them selling drink which can be taken on George square. Disgraceful on so many levels.’ 🤔

Unfortunately, those that oppose a boycott will seize on stories like that as ‘proof’ that a boycott would kill Celtic

Apparently, 9 of the ESL teams have agreed to a penalty of 5% of next season’s UEFA prize money as a penalty for their part in the attempted breakaway. Real, Barca (the two clubs that need the money the nosy) and Juve (the hardest nosed owner) are still refusing to commit to staying.

“Aiding and abetting a criminal partner WHO WOULD GLADLY SEE US GONE ”

You hit on a point I think a lot of people don’t get ; that this “partnership “is one way only !
It suits them for now but given the opportunity they would/will see us consigned to history , as tried by Murray in early Nineties .

Forget any “hand – wringing” about ” future of Scottish football ” or ” lack of competition ” , there’d be no mention of such in the media nor concerns over Ibrox way ; most likely they would be in EPL within a few years . ( I always believed there was a possibility of ONE of the “old firm ” being invited down here , no chance of BOTH )

A dangerous game DD is playing with regards to the future of Celtic Football Club , I think .

I know I am preaching to the converted but surely no one would be so naive as to believe that BS. Kill Celtic🤔– What- exactly like the PLC and Dermott are currently doing? IMO fans flexing their considerable financial muscle, especially in Scotland, would focus the PLC and majority shareholders’ attention extremely quickly.

https://thecelticblog.com/2021/05/blogs/the-five-way-agreement-and-lawells-trust-issues-with-celtic-fans/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

I appreciate the Celtic Blog has ads to circumnavigate but it is well worth doing if you want to find the Boards Achilles Heel.

As JF says the idea Celtic were not involved in the construction of the 5WA verges on absurdity.

The same club myth was created in the 5 WA. LNS used the duality the 5WA created to give that creation air. Doncaster then uses the authority the 5WA gave LNS, to turn up the oxygen and give a legal veneer of authority that the same club myth needed!

Doncaster in effect is using a law lord as a legal front to support a case Doncaster himself helped provide the justification for.

Commercial considerations rose roughshod over the integrity football depends on to be a sport and Celtic supported it, but could not be seen to have done so hence denial.

The e mail of 27 July 2012 from Doncaster to Lawwell and Eric Riley with the 5WA attached is the Achilees Heel of the Board into which Bankier at the 2020 Zoom AGM fired another arrow when he stated he personally had looked at shareholders letters claiming PL had lied at 2019 AGM and no one had been guilty of misleading anyone. (Bankier is not squeaky clean at 2019 AGM either)

I’ll post links to Doncaster using LNS to justify same club and a video of Bankier from 2020 AGM.

The next step should be to establish what remedies shareholders have when seriously misled and as representatives of shareholders the CST are the obvious vehicle to pose the question.

The point about a boycott is that it is a threat. However it has to be credible and have an objective and a reason for seeking it.

My experience on Res12 is Celtic will act if a threat is credible. I can think of no more credible threat than seeking legal advice on whether or not shareholders were misled beyond shareholder rights and Director responsibilities and if they were, what remedy can shareholders seek.

As long as the 5WA is allowed to rule the game, the game isnt sport.

‘At the centre of all of this is one rancid document.

We know it as the Five Way Agreement.

The reason it’s so important right now is that it is inextricably linked to our outgoing CEO Peter Lawwell.

This is the reason a section of our fan-base will never trust a word he says again.’

Gordon64

‘The Five Way Agreement is the most destructive document in the history of the Scottish game.

It enshrines lies.

It underpins every strutting arrogant Ibrox boast, and it is quite clear that it remains the most corrupt agreement ever drafted in the sport, a document so bad that its existence was never disclosed to the European governing body, although it impacts on their governance rules.’

I could not agree more. If this boil is not lanced it will continue to fester and divide the support. It took me a while to believe it but to me it’s clear now – it’s the 5 way agreement that the Huns are using to blackmail our club into silence. Over everything. Now I may not agree that Peter Lawwell should have been party to it or even played a part in drafting it but I will accept if he puts his hands up and explains why he did. Then we can move on. Until then the sword of Damocles hovers over Celtic and we are helpless in the face of their supremacy.
If Dominic McKay wants to give himself a proper chance of success as CEO then he needs to call this out. If that back goes on Lawwell then he’ll have his £20m plus to provide succour.

I dont agree with the idea that “fear of financial fallout tied [Celtic’s] hands.” In fact, we KNOW that is not the case.

“As reported by the BBC in February 2012, ” Lawwell says the eventuality of their Old Firm rivals going bust “would have no material effect on Celtic”.

“We look after ourselves,” Lawwell told BBC Scotland. “We don’t rely on any other club. We are in a decent position, we’re very strong.”

“Our aspirations and horizons are to dominate in Scotland but also beyond that; we want to compete at the highest level again in Europe,” said Lawwell.

“We have a stand-alone strategy, a stand-alone financial plan and a robustness hopefully that will take us through that.

“Times are pretty tough. I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to talk about any individual club, these things are hypothetical at the moment.

“I think we’ve a view, a very strong view on certain circumstances but we’ll only share that at the right time.”

PLwould not have said this unless they had first looked at the issue. So fear of going alone was not the impetus for doing what they did subsequently. DD clearly was, as his subsequent statement was.

It seems to me that DD thought either (i) Celtic were more sellable to another league as part of an Old Firm Duo, or (ii) deep down Celtic fans didn’t want to lose the rivalry (which I believe is the case), so he gave the fans what they wanted (even if they wont admit it).

Of course, I dont know when Celtic started negotiating the 5 WA, so, if it was before February 2012, that would put a different spin on things.

========================
MIT.

The financial fallout would have hit all the other clubs in the SPL more than Celtic and fear of being alone as opposed to going it alone would have to have been paid attention to, apart from Celtic being the sole voice opposing the arrangement because they could manage the loss of revenue better than fellow clubs that Celtic depended upon to provide opposition.

Those clubs were more reliant on TV money than Celtic and the amount of TV money on offer was dependent on Rangers survival.

To get a better perspective of the issues at play, all of them have to be taken into consideration. In any case using what PL or DD said as if it were true is not a strong argument.

It is true they said it, but is what they said true in its entirety?

As mentioned, at 2019 AGM PL probably told a truth in respect of a conversation he said he had with UEFA the morning of the AGM, but it was not the whole truth and nothing but the truth and he knew it.

In legal terms how would such a statement be described?

I was told back in 2014/15 that DD asked PL about Res12 and the answer was that it would all fall away once “Rangers” were back in the top tier which supports your view of fans not wanting to lose the rivalry.

Had that rivalry been an honest one then that judgement would have been correct, but it wasn’t and they could not have seen Res12 exposing the degree of dishonesty nor the insult to the intelligence of their support arising from the LNS Decision which has more truth holes in it than a Swiss Cheese.

What is required is an intelligent response to a support with more intelligence than The Board give them credit for.

The truth will out even when it is unpalatable to accept.

Much sense in what you say… and, AT THIS POINT, nothing that anyone at Celtic says can be believed.

However, as I was saying, unless Celtic were already balls deep in the conspiracy by February 2102, PL had no reason to lie/cover up AT THAT TIME. So, I think his statement then would carry more weight than what he said subsequently.

Why is this important? Because, I get the sense that people are looking to make PL the fall guy, and are now taking the position that things will improve once PL is gone.

Increasingly, one the years, I have seen this as DD believed the fans wanting the OF, and giving them what they wanted. As I have said, I dont care for PL , but he was just the monkey… but DD was the organ grinder….. PL was just doing what his boss demanded….. but it was the fans who were paying to hear the music. Putting it all on PL allows the fans to whitewash their responsibility in all of this.

================
Making PL the fall guy is not the end, it is but a means to an end.

That end being that The Board can be made accountable by organised shareholders if the latter get their act together.

If a Board member thinks they can be dishonest with impunity there is no disincentive to be dishonest.

If a Board member thinks the support are easily led sheep then they will be prepared to mislead them.

Saying ” Enough!” using the two AGMS in 2019 and 2020 as evidence of being misled will lead to a change in The Board/DDS thinking about the support as it will have been demonstrated to no longer be true.

That new end to me is that an honest relationship with the support is more in the Company’s interest than continuing with shoring up a lie.

It is essential to restore trust and that for me is more important than all the trophies in the world.

It will see Celtic endure in the most difficult of times as well as reap the rewards the truth produces.

If ever a club was in a position to set an ethical lead because of the reason it was founded (but has strayed from) that Club is Celtic.

Added Edit. It was always down to each individual to see the part they have played and it will always be down to each individual to accept their responsibility or blame some one else. Accepting responsibility is a sign of maturity which life provides in abundance.

Lets fix what we can and let life do its work which doing what we can is part of.

MIT,
I struggle to see what my part was in the 5 way agreement. I bought my season book as did many others throughout the time they were not in the league. I was more than happy to see them gone and was angry with the outcome that they just carried on as before. But that is on the board/Lawwell /DD for signing up to 5 way agreement or being out flanked by Charles Green. In fact maybe that is why this has carried on for so long. Could it be that PL and DD are so mortified to have been outflanked that they don’t want anyone to know.
As I have said before, if we follow the plan of you and others not to attend Celtic Park then what happens to the club? The end game of that is no Celtic or a very weak Celtic and the Huns march on. Most people we know have made mistakes in their life. Do we just ditch them as mates, family or clients because their principles have been found wanting on occasion? I don’t and I doubt you do either so why are Celtic expected to be held to such uncompromising standards?

MAGUA

MIT

I get what your saying….but.

The monkey aka Lawwell had day to day responsibility FOR ALL ASPECTS of the running of the club, whilst DD was swanning off doing whatever the feck he does…not much, as far as Celtic FC goes.

It therefore follows, in my view, that it is right and just that Old Firm Pete should be apportioned most of the blame for what has transpired since 2012.

This fecker has collaborated with an evil empire, and has lied to an AGM on at least one occasion re the 5wa.

Is there any way that a group of shareholders can have this bastard up before the beak for his conduct? Now I realise that would be a civil matter. However, just imagine if he had the temerity to lie on oath. Now we are straying into the realms of criminality. Hell, if the best came to the best, he may see some gaol time. We can but hope.

You may be right that the original plan was decided by Desmond,but the strategy is Lawwell’s,as is the ownership.

No Celtic fan with any integrity would have followed those instructions-Lawwell went for it 100%. And only Lawwell was in a position to prevent it too-but he didn’t.

As I’ve said before,it throws further question marks at our performances between the last of WGS’ third title and the huns eventual liquidation. My suspicions have long been that we threw them a lifeline for those four years,and then went all in on keeping them afloat afterwards.

jimthetim53

It’s obvious that a mass boycott by ST holders would work. It would bring the Board to it’s knees.
The problem is I don’t think there is enough support for it. I am trying to be pragmatic, by saying OK if not that – then what!?

Some people are quick to bring up the CST’s wish for the ‘added value’ to ST holders take the form of shares in Celtic. Admirable as that might be, it’s way down the pecking order for me as a priority.
It is also NOT a good enough reason to write off the CST. There is much that they can do and achieve. If you don’t like some of things that they do, join up! Change it!. £5 a month? One member one vote.

2 proposals were accepted at their AGM recently. One on Board Reform and one on SFA Reform. These are crucial. The plan is that in the event Celtic have made no progress on these 2 issues by the time the Celtic AGM draws near, the CST will but forward 2 resolutions at the Celtic AGM. They will be on the agenda, will need to be discussed. For all the world to see and hear!

The very thought of it will hopefully put the cat amongst the pigeons on the Board.

There will always be a Celtic.

It really just depends on what type of club is acceptable to you.

You are getting what you deserve If you continue paying to see the team, regardless of whatever shenanigans the Board are prepared to contrive, in your name.

It was understandable to claim ‘what can we do/ the Board are always do strange things but we are really the club, they are just custodians etc., etc. that was plausible, when everything they were up to was hidden from view, strongly suspected, but nevertheless unconfirmed. No proof.

Now that it’s all in plain view ?!

We faced exactly the same arguments in 93/94: ‘not real Celts, the club will die/don’t let them die’ the self-proclaimed ‘faithful never missed a game’ etc., that is all very well, but if thousands of us hadn’t seen the writing on the wall, understood the scale of the problem then, sniffed the coffee….The folk who railed against us, and it got quite personal & nasty at times, would have continued to pretend to themselves that nothing was wrong and would have sucked the life out the club. Unintentionally, of course, but nevertheless, that would have been the outcome.

If that thinking had been allowed to prevail then, what type club would we have had in 1995?

One like The Rangers!! Think on that…

Make no mistake, the situation now isn’t so very different. It’s masked by the fact the guys at the top of the club have serious wealth. However, they will destroy Celtic. The Bank of Scotland may not be hovering with a willing scythe … but similar dangers are lurking.

Good luck to fans who can still say they never joined any boycott .., that they have an unbroken attendance record etc.,

As long as they are prepared to acknowledge they still have a club that can claim an unbroken history, because enough fans were prepared to act differently and to make sacrifices on their behalf.

Let’s stop this ..’ we aren’t the Board’ chat.

You continue to pay them money, knowing what you know, you are actively endorsing them and entirely complicit!
