Oh,The Banter…


Six games and counting since we all threw ourselves off a cliff nearly three weeks ago. A home draw and away defeat in the Champions League saw us turfed out,and in between we had the robber barons in black conspiring to ensure an unlikely victory for a pish poor Hearts side.

Offside,my arse. Meantime,kick lumps out of the guys in The Hooooops. 

A Lisbon Lion,no less,is quoted as saying that when he played against Celtic it was understood that opponents could get away with that bit more. In his own words,it wasn’t until he signed for Celtic that he realised just how bloody much! I was at the game on Saturday,and saw a thug-a disgrace to his union membership-cleaning out a Celtic player and walking away afterwards. 

As he has done many a time before. 

He nailed Wee Frimpers as an example,played keepie-uppie with him. That was a disgraceful assault,and so too was the one on Saturday. 

Fair play to Willie Collum with the straight red. Power is not a footballer,he is a thug,a bouncer,an enforcer,and he has no place in The Beautiful Game. 

And then,the following day,we see a bus load of supporters on their way to Dingwall regaling our own latest superstar. Apparently he ate their dog and has slanty eyes. That is about as funny as the proverbial fart in a spacesuit,and is deeply offensive to anyone and everyone. 

Par for the course though with that lot,who seem to think it’s “just a bit of bantz”

Aye,we’ve all been on the end of a bit of bantz in our time,and it isn’t pleasant. But there are laws against it now. Police Scotland need to start taking seriously videos like this,like the one at Ibrox a few months ago,and actually investigate and prosecute. No more of “no criminality”,an absolute cop out-pun intended. 

It’s not just there in black and white,it’s there in full colour with a synchronised soundtrack. It is NOT “no criminality”. It is obvious criminality. And to
refuse to take it further should be a crime in itself. 

You never know,if we try that we might have a Police Force we have pride in. Like I did when I was a kid. 

And like I’ve not had for far too long.

Been up in Glasgow yesterday with GARRY,on a scouting trip for the Hootenanny on Saturday.

Just as well that we did,places are having difficulty getting back up to speed regards staff and stock,plus there are shortages in supply of beer and gas.

Upshot is that The Blane Valley are cool with around a dozen or so more than usual around lunchtime and McChuills are confident they can cope with around fifty or so in the afternoon.

Not that they’ll be counting,of course!

Since I won’t be mailing people as I did in the past,I think their worst case might be optimistic!

Hope one and all can make it. Usual rules apply-just have fun!!!

We should take a Klopp like response and call out the thuggery, vicious and sleekit, now.
Justified complaints have more impact when we are winning.

As for the inane racists , they are too ignorant to demonise our new man accurately.
Dog has never been part of Japanese cuisine as far as I know. Certainly doesn’t feature in my local sushi restaurant- perhaps “ate my goldfish” would be a more appropriate racist slur- apologies to all SC goldfish owners.

Laughing at these racist morons, as well as pursuing their obvious racist criminality, always has the power to undermine their sordid prejudices.

Don’t hold your breath. NL was assaulted standing at the side of the pitch with thousands of witnesses, not proven!

August 24, 2021 6:22 am


If I recall the basis of the charge was that the assault was motivated by sectarianism and the inability to prove that it was resulted in the not proven Verdict. Happy to stand corrected.

Either incompetence by the Prosecution or subtle undermining of due process?
In Scottish judiciary terms anything is possible.
We are not paranoid enough.

Aye, The cheating and violence is just warming up.

The blatant penalty for Ross County on Sunday has been wiped from the face of the earth …predictably

Sevco complete an investigation into targeted racism and ban a bus from future tickets (away) allocations , but fail to identify specific eejits who are all presumably being allowed into game on Sunday?!

Sevvies did all this, rather quickly, and yet still contrived to avoid making any apology to the victim of the crime…

Not a word! from Stevie G and he won’t be asked, or offer support … unprompted.

Morning all!
John A and CFC…The prosecution of the Hearts supporter who attacked Lennon was done under the newly formed, and subsequently binned, law which was designed to prosecute anti-social, sectarian behaviour at any fitba event in Scotland. It was politically motivated and inherently flawed from its inception. The law was introduced after The Oldco lost the plot and the game at Parkheid, culminating in Lennon having a go at McCoist for a sneaky comment in his ear at the final whistle. The Scottish Govt saw and exploited an opportunity but ultimately scored a massive own goal!
The guy who attacked Lennon was drunk and possibly on drugs and it couldn’t be proved there was a sectarian aspect to the attack, the bigger more pertinent point being that existing laws, if used for the prosecution, would have guaranteed a conviction as there was absolutely no doubt the attack took place!
Massive incompetence by the Crown and another slap in the face to Celtic and our support who had been unfairly, unjustly and disproportionately targeted by Police Scotland in their pursuit of individuals who were believed to have broken this new law.
Big Jim Packy…love to Wee Joan and yourself! I hope today brings good news for you both. Give her a hug from me!

Aye- claim of a wee push before – utter nonsense of course.

Then Studiously ignored… that’s how it works

This specific example should be hammered out long and loud all week by every single Celtic site/blog… phone in etc., etc.

Get the spotlight and focus onto their more obvious tricks.

Right off to talisker to let Mr ATOB sample their wares!!

August 24, 2021 11:46 am

The point has been made already, but repeating it will do no harm. Thursday’s game is gonna show how well we can compete with a very useful side from a superior league. I think all of us, except Garry, want to go deep into the Europa League. Therefore we should concentrate on the game v Alkmaar before we concern ourselves with Sunday. I certainly hope the players have that mindset.
Sorry Garry, but the conference carries much less prestige, and prize money, than the Europa, even if a trip to Seville is a nice thought. We can argue about it on Saturday when we’re outside having a smoke.

ATOB has asked me to forward this to the chat. Particularly relevant just now with the lack of Celtic songs being heard at the park! It has been clear to me that we need to be singing more song together and there are certain parts of the GB repertoire that fans are just not participating in. This would get us all singing along!!

All is well. No changes to current arrangements just a reminder to us all of the rules and a request to those not yet vaccinated to get done as they are a danger to us all (or words to that effect) and to get tested so that it catches those without symptoms – a la CCB!

A relief to us all but especially to those of us who feel we are already doing our bit!

Those refereeing stats are incredible. 1.7 fouls against 16 for yellow cards but of much more interest is the euro referees consistency – that’s what the SFA should be using as a barometer not the Lanarkshire Refereeing fraternity’s 1690 clause!
