Awkward,,,

So Kyle Laugh-at-me is really fired up for today’s big cup clash.
Raring to go, can’t wait, ‘the man’ is aiming to come back with a bang.
Translated, he aims to throw himself about.
 
It’s nice of him to give Ange prior notification so all the back four will be heading onto the field aware of what’s to come.
Foolish of him, but nice to know.
 
Fortunately his timing is terrible.
With all eyes on the whistlers ahead of next week’s big sit-down, two professional performances over two days are called for, in fact I would posit they are needed to show some semblance of competency.
It’s the wrong stage and moment for any player to back the ref into a corner, to try and play to his underlying anti-Celtic bias.
Yet big thug announces he’s coming to battle?
Awkward,,,all around.
 
This is his last big chance to hurt the Tims, he might get another meaningless league fixture later in the season, but derailing our cup retention and/or affecting the league run in would surely become his prime after dinner speech in years to come.
If he can’t score the goals to hurt the team, then just hurt the team. Here you are everyone, their defense is a man down for a spell ala Hinkle, fill yer boots.
I would actually start Jenz, my reasoning being he could handle him better and if crocked by the idiot we have an able deputy.
But as you probably know, bullies never pick on someone their own size or bigger, it’s the smaller fullbacks that face the biggest threat.
 
Now I would never imagine Ange endorsing the unsavoury side of the game, but the players themselves have the sanctity of the dressing room to discuss affairs. And like I say they’ve been tipped off.
 
If he decides he’s leaving his mark on somebody, when he decides rather, should he stay on the park ala Hinkel then I want Juranovic to absolutely clobber him, clean his clock, take him out of the picture full stop.
It might cost a red, but what does he care, about to split the scenes so a ban won’t hurt, departs a hero after truly taking one for the team.
 
If my final and overwhelming image of the Croatian is flattening Laugh-at-me then walking I shall die a happy man, and forever hold him in high regard. Throw in a wink at the bench also, just for me.
 
Let’s do this Celtic, and do him if he acts up.
Come On You Bhoys In Green.

He is all they, and the smsm have. The last resort, base level. I understand the sentiment Mahe but being better at football will win the day.

Happy semi final day 1 1/2 hours before the bus sets off for a bevy day in Glesga. 🍺🥃🍷

Think you may be optimistic about the mibs behaving before next week’s meeting. Not worried about Lafferty be strong against him and like any bully he’ll run away, plus he’s utter pish.

Jobo Baldie

Good morning, friends and Happy Matchday.
I actually wouldn’t give Lafferty a moments thought. Were he a midfield thug with potentially more I influence in the game then maybe. But I’d be surprised if he gets any more than half a dozen chances to be physically involved in the game. And if he gets carded too early, he’ll be hooked!

‘It now appears that passage of time is an acceptable defence for wrongdoing.’

David Grier’s excellent observation on the Hun Sheriff Lindsey Wood walking away laughing from the malicious prosecution case but it’s a statement that’s equally applicable elsewhere, particularly this week.

Morning all,

Reports are saying GG is away to Japan for his medical with Urawa.

Shabby, if true as we don’t have a replacement signed.

Meantime we are short up front. Hope this decision, again if true, doesn’t come back to bite us.

Anyway, COYBIG 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Morning all.
Would love to see laughatme, have to leave the pitch early today, with an injury that hopefully isn’t a trivial one.

The Leopard’s Rimshot

Aye, Gordon, Ralph nails it once again.

Just a shame that not everyone agrees that MN has proven what a spineless subservient jellyfish he is by once again not speaking up on this ongoing scandal.

HH

St tams

Etims, talking a bit of sense for a change

The Leopard’s Rimshot

To be fair, Ralph has produced three excellent articles over the past week and a half, with a little help from Schrödinger’s Cat to set the ball rolling.

Morning all

I am with those who have said they have not given much or even any thought to the return to action of Kilmarnock’s Kyle Lafferty. A player who at his peak – a decade ago although I admit I missed it- never quite reached the category of ‘quite good’. I am sure Ange will be more aware of the dangers Laffable presents than I am but I would like to think our manager is more concerned with how we will win the game well and how we avoid complacency going into a game against we beat a week ago despite never engaging a high gear.

We might lose today- God knows we’ve lost enough games to underdogs at Hampden in the league cup over the last 52 years- but if we play well we will win.

As I replied to Auldheid’s assertion earlier in the week that appointing Aitken was “crass stupidity” – my awareness tells me it is a power play show of absolute contempt.

Paranoia is total awareness.

The Leopard’s Rimshot

Cheers, CFC, I agree.

Sadly I’m no longer allowed to complain about the board on here so will have to just agree with what others write when outing them for the forelock tugging arselickers that they are.

HH

The Leopard’s Rimshot

And cf course it’s a power play as you said and as I wrote on discovering it, they’re deliberately rubbing the Celtic support’s nose in it and they will continue to do for as long as they keep getting away with it.

And they WILL keep getting away with it, no matter how many times others tell us that the future’s all roses for Celtic and the support.

CFC

TLR

I’m hoping that Auldheid is correct, and proven so, in his defence of the individuals on the Board in whom he places some trust.

The stagnation of decades of deference will take some shifting but I’m clinging to the hope that change is afoot! So Auldheid has my support in that regard.

The Leopard’s Rimshot

I’m hoping for exactly the same, CFC, and I’ve reiterated this time & again.

But I’ll only begin to believe that reform is actually happening when I see the required reform being practically implemented for the greater good of the game, with the main players out front & centre, as transparency is key to the entire process.

TLR, why are you not allowed to complain about the board on here?

As always in this saga more questions than answers

Grier (RFC 1) strung HMRC along along with many many others. The panto was necessary as nobody wanted to take that particular liquidation job on made far more difficult and complex than what the job was worth and therefore nobody was willing to pay them on a “contractual” basis what they thought the job was worth. Hence the need for public funds ditto the 4 bears. Let’s wait and see what Grier does. I have no issues with what happened to Res. 12 funds. I was just stating that it looked like to me that the decks have been cleared and I personally think that it reeks (Grier announcement and how flimsy it was) of closure. Lets see what Grier does do. Maybe the net is about to be closed on all of them and there will be no need for an independent judicial inquiry that some people are hoping for. Even if that were to happen then it would still have a very small locus. The establishment does not write cheques and it has a lot to protect.

ATOB

I agree with you

Big Audio Dynamite

So, GG is going from starring in the champions league against the likes of Real Madrid, to a team who finished 9th(!) in the J-League last season??

Money really is king!

The Leopard’s Rimshot

BAD, I was asked on Thursday night to move onto another subject as everyone already knows my views.

So that’s what I’ll do.

HH

CFC

TLR

With you on that. We both have referenced instances of malign forces at work within the Scottish Establishment.
The Huns are a very useful rallying point for control of attack dogs when needed. And the dogs have to be thrown a few bones to keep them onside. There will inevitably be strong resistance to reform of age old practices of self entitlement.

How far will the putative reformers be allowed to go regarding transparency and accountability?

Big Audio Dynamite

TLR, i, again, wanted to talk to you about that and a couple of other things, but I remembered you were a bit reluctant to give out your number of email? I would in no way abuse your trust, but I do understand your worries about strangers on the net 👍

No biggy either way my friend

It wasn’t too long ago that Lafferty was the individual who brought our 69 game unbeaten run under The Fraud at Tynecastle in a 4-0 reverse. OK, he hasn’t done much recently but I’d still be very wary of him. He’s not someone to turn your back on if you’re wearing green and white hoops – ask Andreas Hinkel.

In other news, I see John James Site is on free view this month and he’s put up the letter that Grier has been sent. Quite a scoop!
Its absolutely breathtaking that our Judiciary are brazen enough to let this all play out in public. They are clearly untouchable in this shithole of a country (c) ATOB

GER57

The fact that we are discussing Lafferty’s possible malign influence in a major semi final is a terrible indictment of Scottish football. The man is a proven cheat, and an unapologetic bigot. He should have been suspended sine die as he no doubt would have been had his comments referred to any other ethnic or religious community. But it’s acceptable in 21st century Scotland to make these type of remarks about the Irish or Catholics. McInnes has shown appalling leadership here, making Lafferty out to be a victim, with not a word about his offence.
As always, the best way to shut the bigots up is to hump them on the park. (Although I do like Leon Trotsky’s comment that racists or fascists only listen when my boot is on their throats.) I have every confidence that Ange will have the team set up to do just that today.

Gordon 64
From the last thread, the songs you posted , Ye Jacobites and Joe Hill, stirred good memories for me. Paul Robeson singing Joe Hill to the audience of miners was really poignant. It spurred me to read up about Paul. What a guy and what a class fighter. Sure, his support for Stalin was unsound, but I can just imagine how ragin’ those bigots in the US Senate must have been when a black slave’s son stood up to them. The man was a colossus, both physically and intellectually, and he let them know it.
Thanks Gordon.

Have you read the correspondence between HMRC and Grier? I have. HMRC wanted paid if at all possible that was their aim throughout that period with Grier.

They had the power to postpone payment at any time and didn’t, but knew from June 2011 that if Rangers qualified for the CL that would mean a tranche of CL money coming in around October which would go some way to tax recovery.

HMRC actually suggested putting back the date of a meeting (HMRC NOT Grier) until the result of a qualifying game came in. There was no stringing along, just two parties trying to find a settlement that met both objectives.

What took place is all here

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6uWzxhblAt9eWtQQWZjckhPcE0/view?resourcekey=0-i_HreREWlQr8VUjW5wwEJA in a series of e mails and it is anything but HMRC being strung along.

My other point about Grier is that if not for him there would have been no evidence there was a payable from 21st March 2011 after ongoing talks ended in Rangers accepting they had to pay. There was no potential liability subject to ongoing talks at 31st March the basis on which the license was granted. This wasn’t just a breach of UEFA FFP it was fraud and the last thing Scottish football clubs and Celtic wanted, because they need those clubs for a competition to exist, was Rangers jailed for crooked dishonesty.

Clubs, Celtic included were protecting themselves from Rangers behaviour which meets the definition of moral hazard.- they take the risk, everyone else takes the hit if the risk fails.

Back to Grier. He played ball because he knew he was being set up in the period court cases were all the rage and acted. So do not rule him out going all the way as he has a lot more to gain by persisting

On the end of Res12 the decks were cleared at the 2021 AGM not by The Board, not by the MIB but by Celtic supporters who were members of the Celtic Trust. They had the chance to expose everything shareholders were concerned about had their evidence backed Note of Concern resolution gone into The AGM papers so the CST removed the evidence to neuter the resolution.

At that point putting resolutions to an AGM as a means of accountability to shareholders died unless I carried on myself and that I was no longer prepared to do.

The offer of reimbursement came afterwards out of the blue and it was taken up because it did something in line with the charitable ethos on which Celtic were founded and in a small way it keeps that ethos alive.

Finally, what I find interesting is that Celtic supporters having been charged by the media of being paranoid are proving they are not by pointing to all the hard evidence uncovered since 2012 available to all if they read it at http://www.res12,uk

One of the reasons that archive was built was so that what really took place would never be lost and might play a part in the future history of Scottish football. The bummer for me is
a) I am going to have to add what took place since 2021 and
b) work on restoring the time flow that got interrupted as new information emerged after a previous time point had been created so that events are easier to follow. The LNS skulduggery deserve an archive of its own too,

Then again if folk don’t read it. Why bother?

Can you elaborate? Who elsewhere is making the passage of time an acceptable defence of wrongdoing?

It certainly is not.

Scottish Conservative MSP has called for an external judge to scrutinise Scottish justice after claiming it had become ‘contaminated’ by the botched police investigation into the takeover of Rangers FC.

Russell Findlay MSP made the appeal after after it became apparent that a Rangers-supporting judge, who came under criticism for submitting a ‘misleading’ report during the failed Ibrox fraud enquiry, is set to retire.

Crass stupidity in the sense that that it makes folk more determined to put an end to it.

It just adds to the ever growing perception that they think they can do what they like. Keep on doing it and if it has a negative effect on Celtic, who knows the support might just get organised enough to take matters into there own hands, like a mass protest outside Hampden Park with spokesmen already to say why to the media and get the evidence to the wider world.

Alternatively their contempt comes from knowing there will be no re action.

Morning all,

Meantime we are short up front. Hope this decision, again if true, doesn’t come back to bite us.

Anyway, COYBIG 🍀🍀🍀🍀
————————————————-
Hi Leggy: This coincides with a media report in Korea that Cho Gue-Sung has decided he is not coming to us. If correct, that to me is a bigger blow than losing GG. And taken together, it could be a bit of a disaster. Unless we have our ducks in a row for a Plan B, we would be one Kyogo injury away from a significant problem. The Korea report said Cho “Did not feel wanted enough by Celtic” which of course could be made up media bullshit.

I see we are also rumoured to be after “The new young Lewandowski”. The last one ( Klimala ) didn’t work out too well.

Just noticed Man Utd scored a goal that we would be instantly denied.

The Leopard’s Rimshot

Auldheid, so now you’re saying that we’re not to be trusted if we post on other blogs?!

After you wrongfully and unnecessarily called me ‘paranoid’ the other night and dismissed my entire opinion, with no apology, after you’ve tried to ‘teach me forgiveness’ for still being angry at the board’s decades of despicable actions and inaction, now you’re telling us that we can’t be trusted by airing an opinion on another blog?!

I was told on Thursday that everyone knows my opinion on the board and that I should move on to something else so if I can’t air my grievances about the board here I’ll happily take them elsewhere no matter what you think of it.

You’re even ranting at Phil’s posters for saying what I’m saying, and which we all know to be true, that those men can’t be trusted no matter how many times you try to force us to believe they can.

What sort of power trip are you on, mate?

The Leopard’s Rimshot

You see, Auldheid, as I said the other night, you’ve been trying to pick a fight with me for weeks, even to thr point of calling me ‘paranoid’ and my opinions worthless, and now you’re trying to do the same again for me airing my views elsewhere.

Your name was not mentioned in my piece on the other blog, but unfortunately you seem to be skulking around every corner of every blog where there’s a complaint about the board, ready to jump out and pounce on the poster for airing their disgust with your assertions that ‘the board have changed’ and now we’ve all to believe you …

I let you off with your folly and insults the other night and expressed my wish for peace for the sake of blog harmony but you just won’t let it go, you’re following me around trying to shut me up wherever I am.

Now why you’re doing that and why you’ve been picking this fight with me only you alone know but it’s been since the donation was made to the Foundation, which you see as the final happy drawing of a line under Res 12, and I can’t help but think both these things are related.

Because essentially what you e been saying is that we must believe everything you say and that any dissent will result in accusations of being ‘paranoid’ and our views and reputation trashed just because we refuse to agree with you …

Absolutely outrageous controlling behavior, mate, and you ought to take a good look at yourself for thinking you’re now the sole authority on the Celtic board whose powers will be enforced every time someone dares air an opinion contrary to yours..

The Leopard’s Rimshot

I’m not being personal, Mick, I’m stating what’s happening generally.

That’s not how it reads to any rational observer. Personal stuff is for personal consumption and not for a public site.

The Leopard’s Rimshot

I agree, Mick, but isn’t being called paranoid and worthless a personal opinion also?

I forgave him that but now I’m not even allowed to write on other blogs?!

Auldheid didn’t get pulled for directing that personal attack at me on Thursday, an attack for which I never even asked for an apology, and now he’s pulling even worse character assassination stunts today by saying I ‘can’t be trusted’ for writing in another blog?!

He wasnt even mentioned on the other blog.

Who the feck does he think he is to tell me what I can write and where I can write it?
