Good Afternoon

The Daily Record has declared yet another “War.

Any more, and it could find itself subject to UN sanctions.

This time it’s Sevco squaring up to His Big Mikeness after “discovering” that Sports Direct’s commercial deal with Scotland’s newest club is a seven year rolling one.

The prevailing view in Clumpany Towers is that “discovering” = “knew ages ago, but spinning it now for dramatic effect”.

After all, the new regime has been in place – and privy to commercial information – since early March.

In terms of the rhetoric being used, there are no surprises in Keith Jackson’s piece.

HMB has apparently “turned his guns on the new regime”, the commercial deal is described as “crippling” and “astonishing”, the…

A season gone and a season to come

Originally posted on CELTS FROM THE SOUTH:

On Sunday afternoon, Celtic put Inverness Caledonian Thistle to the sword. It was a fine way to bring the curtain down on a season which has seen Ronny Deila’s team bond and progress.

At first, most people were open minded about Deila and the swiftness of his appointment. Then a failed Champions League campaign changed that.

Some unconvincing domestic displays in the early part of the season added to the Deila doubter’s list of dissatisfaction. If that wasn’t enough, you had the media, including ex-Celtic players, weighing in with their own tuppence worth of bile.

The breakthrough for Ronny was of course the Europa League. It was an ideal competition for a team in transition and kept both the club’s and the fan’s interests in the European scene.

Good performances home and away were encouraging, even if all results weren’t perfect. It was enough to build confidence though and there…

Celtic signed off for the 2014-15 campaign with a stylish victory over Scottish Cup finalists Inverness Caley Thistle before lifting the Scottish Premiership trophy at Parkhead.

Striker Stefan Scepovic claimed the opener on his first start since January by bundling home Virgil van Dijk’s knockdown in the fifth minute.

PFA Scotland player of the year Stefan Johansen doubled their advantage 13 minutes later with a composed finish from Emilio Izaguirre’s cutback.

In the closing 20 minutes, Scepovic added his second with a tap-in…

Glasgow Celtic Champions 2015

Glasgow Celtic Champions 2015Glasgow Celtic Scottish Champions 2015. It’s been a season of ups and ups. There has been a few downs though namely in Europe and a disappointing Scottish Cup semi final. But without going into the nitty gritty and conspiracies which abound, after a slow start the season kicked off and since November Celtic has sat at the top of the SPL and today’s emphatic 5-0 over ICT topped a generally satisfying second part of the season. I’m sure some of us had our doubts about Ronny Deila and I have to admit to being uncertain myself at times. But he has won me over and in particular the way he has the team playing and their fitness levels which has impressed me no end. Constant running and giving where they can a full 90 minutes exertion. it has been a joy to watch at times, when you think of those times…

Well that’s it then.

You can stick your Insolvency Law where the sun don’t shine.

You can forget all about what Lord Nimmo Smith actuallysaid.

You can forget all about incorporation and liquidation.

You can forget all about a completely new entity buying the dismembered parts of a club that died owing creditors millions of pounds.

You can forget all about a club that finished second in the SPL not playing in Europe the following season, and not entering the Scottish Cup in the later rounds as you might ordinarily expect.

You can forget about a new entity having to apply to join the SPL and then the SFL.

You can forget all about the new entity being given an entirely new sort of SFA membership (a ‘conditional’ one) to allow it to play senior football.

You can also forget all about the new entity being…

Ronnys Review 

Originally posted on docccs:

With the last game of the season approaching on Sunday against Inverness Caley Thistle. How do we all feel the first season under Mr Deila has went?

The first noticeable disappointment is that the season ends early. I’m sure we all hoped that we would have been in the final of the Scottish Cup come the end of May. However we have got a chance to get revenge on Caley Thistle for the infamous “handball incident” in the semi final. It will gives us the opportunity to teach Caley Thistle a lesson and put them in their place.

Putting that to one side I feel it’s been a very good season for the Bhoys. It did take some time for things to get going but everyone seems to have stuck by the gaffer and his plan and it’s worked. After a horrific showing in the Champions League qualifiers we were…
