Chairman’s statement –
Firstly the revenue. For the first time since I was invited to honour Glasgow Celtic by accepting a board seat, our revenue has slipped below the fifty million mark.
I was here on this very board when we announced we had broken the one hundred million mark, and what a party that was. To see income halved from that glorious point is a stain on the modern supporter.

I have met some, and their concerns were aired. And I told them exactly what I shall tell you,,
Our high powered team of lawyers assures me that not one single person who worked for the club has left then publicly bad mouthed either myself or the club.
I pride myself on that fact, which shows just how highly regarded we are within footballing circles.

The club can move forward, but it needs supporter funding to do so. And it’s clear the level of funding has dropped, which we on the board attribute to the modern Ceric supporter being much more uppity than previous generations.

Some must have never heard The Celtic Song which clearly states ‘We dont care if we win,lose,or draw’
The titanic tussle with Hearts for second place, from which we emerged victorious, a splendid victory itself, and also goes to show fan owned clubs will get nowhere.

We on the board are all confident that should enough funds be provided to dip into the transfer market we shall deliver the final pieces of the jigsaw.
Callum McGregor was a fantastic Captain, and now he’s proving to be an astute manager, he’ll surely deliver the big one sometime so don’t miss out!
What a league title party that shall be!

As for John Kennedy approaching his fourth decade with the club, we felt it only fitting to give him another testimonial with a special commemorative kit being released in tribute to our generation’s Mr Maley. He truly is a legend in the making, and what a testimonial it shall be when he does depart.

As for departure some still ask questions about my own, so I’ll take this opportunity to elaborate on my plans.
It was always my life long dream to work here until I was 88, such a special number, but then everyone around me convinced me I had so much more to offer not to mention a wealth of experience.

So I agreed a deal whereas I would give my formal notice two years to the day after the new chairman was hired, myself stepping aside to the clubs Champions League Committee. This was to ensure the new person was a good fit, with myself being the fall back option.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked to date and we on the board attribute this to the current global employee shortage.
As the old saying goes, good men are hard to find, and at a club like ours you need a particular range of skill sets to navigate each and every channel.
It’s been said I’m an excellent sailor.

Overall the club is healthy, there’s zero public reports otherwise. Every club has supporter grumblings, it’s part and parcel of being a global giant, and those who call themselves true Celtic supporters should heed the words of The Celtic Song.
We are all in this together, those who jump out now do not deserve to be there at the end.

Chairman Bankier

A message from the CEO –
My fellow Celtic fans, it’s clear to see from today’s announcements that we sincerely know what we are doing, the grumblings are simply part and parcel of life as a global giant.

It’s a growing trend to pay at the gate across the entire footballing spectrum and I urge you all to read the T&C’s found somewhere on our website regarding walk ups on the night.
The £2.50 biometric reader fee is clearly in there, section 9.1 paragraph 5.
Credit cards became too much of a risk through fraud and then cash itself was found to have given several employees an allergic reaction so fingerprints with instant cash transfer no refunds on the day is not only groundbreaking, but it helps support the team by funneling a percentage of that biometric revenue stream into the player kitty.
All true fans should want to ‘Get their Thumbs out for the Bhoys!’.
The process couldn’t be easier,
Download the ThumbsUpTims app,
Then have your doctor cosign your local councillors endorsement along with a current bank statement.
We then designate you a priority code to use, not based on your savings obviously.
Please do not harass the security staff, they are all just trying to do a job.

Globally the club has never been more recognizable. Our famous rivalry continues to grow, we are one step closer to 150 shared Old Firm league titles, and what a testimonial that shall be.
Although undergoing a period of rebuilding Manager McGregor had an outstanding finish to the season just popping Hearts to that precious second place spot savoured by soo many but attained by only one.
All of us upon the rollercoaster agree it was a special season indeed.

Speaking of special, what a night John Kennedys third testimonial shall be and we shall even be launching a special commemorative kit for the occasional.
Buying one recognizes what Big John has given for the club.
Everything.
Just £59.99 on the night to appreciate our generation’s Mr Maley.

The Desmond family continue to be the bedrock of our great institution, rest assured the club is backed by a true billionaire.
We are all disappointed at slipping below 50 million in revenue, but believe our fans have it within their hearts to understand the unique circumstances the club finds itself in, and shall return in record numbers.
The ongoing rebuild has not been easy on anyone, but this is the new normal in the footballing world. With Covid and Brexit, our home grown only strategy is noble and we believe shall deliver success if Manager McGregor is given time, with Big John at his side. Our rivals have shunned the homegrown only strategy with some success, but the board believe this will come back to bite them some day, as studies show the dressing room is best controlled by natives and then you have the fact there’s zero public denigration of the club by ex employees,,
All signs point towards a well run club with a plan.
Callum McGregor WILL hoist that league trophy high one day, that’s my bold prediction and you are all welcome to hold me to it.

Peter.

NORRIE M/SENTINEL CELTS

Hi,folks.

We lost a much loved member of our group earlier this week. I would be suitably grateful if you read the following.

++++++

The CQN/Sentinelcelts community, and the many friends of Garry Duncan aka Delaneys Dunky, would like to commemorate Garry’s life and friendship as well pay respect to his recent untimely passing.

We have had many great suggestions from you on how we best commerate Garry’s life, including flowers, a memorial brick, donation to Mary’s meals and financial support for the family etc.

Garry’s family, like so many others in our world today, is not a rich family and find their wealth is through the happiness of the family, so to have the burden of not only laying Garry to rest, but also the cost that goes with it is horrific .

Having spoken with Garry’s son Ryan, we feel it appropriate to pass any monies raised direct to the family to let them decide the best way to use it.

Anyone who wants to support the family in leaving a long lasting commemoration in honour of Garry can do so through making a donation via bank transfer to –

o Account name: Walk With Shay
o Account number: 15326765
o Sort code: 80-22-60
o Bank: Bank of Scotland
Please note – tick business account

:You can also make a donation via paypal to walkwithshay@yahoo.com

Donations will close on Friday 8th October.

Thank you in advance for supporting Garry and his family at this very difficult time.

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Huge Thanks to CRC for supporting, with the use of the Walk with Shay Legacy Fund/account, ensuring support can get there quickly

Gordon64 have you ever seen the French film A Prophet its a prison/gangster drama it is excellent. There is a connection to Celtic great Tommy Burns in it

ASWGL

Like MIT i couldn’t get into Breaking Bad either, The Wire was brilliant,

If any of you haven’t seen “The Black Donnellys” i highly recommend it, set in Hells Kitchen New York, it tells the sory of 4 Roman Catholic Irish brothers the Donnelly family and Joey Ice Cream, and their fights with other Irish and Italian mobs in the neighbourhood.

The new Tony Soprano movie – https://zooqle.com/movie/the-many-saints-of-newark-9n9c.html

Mahe

I liked the black donellys. Must admit I find this Sopranos movie very strange.

Was just thinking,,,
There couldnt be a player less suited to Ange style than Scott Brown. No way Ange would want him, Calmac can hardly be enthused now he’s growing into the armband.
I’ve reached the conclusion if he rejoins the club it’s a sign Ange isnt in control at all and will soon depart, if he doesnt walk upon being told he’s getting Scott full stop.

As for tomorrow, I would go 3-5-2
Hart
CCV
Starfelt
Welsh
McCarthy
Calmac
DT
Jota
Abada
Rogic supporting striker
Kyogo main striker.

BP,
It’s not a case of ignoring unless you are expecting us to say good evening when you come on. It might happen occasionally but it’s not the norm really is it?
It’s a Saturday night, it’s a slow time for the blog. Chill oot man.

What’s the matter, mate? Don’t you be going off here in a huff. It’s a privilege to have this site where we can make almost any point we want, where the overwhelming majority of contributors are polite and don’t get dragged into petty squabbles. Just because your post doesn’t elicit a response doesn’t mean you’re being ignored. Maybe you’ve hit the mark so well there’s nothing more for anyone to say. Maybe your post is just meh, and no one knows how to respond.
I’ve often posted and thought I would get a good response, only to find no one else felt the same. Disappointed? Yes. Flounce off saying I’m being ignored? No. I just reassess my post and try to do better next time.
Did I tell you I didn’t speak to my mother-in-law for over 3 years? I hadn’t fallen out with her, I just didn’t like to interrupt.
True story.
