Comment on Celtic’s Questions to Answer by bect67.

    10 mill needed to see out season.

    What if …

    TRFC don't win the League Cup, don't qualify for Europa knockout stages and are around 6 points behind CFC at end of December (entirely possible)?

    I accept that, as a Celtic supporter, I am more than a little biased, and will readily accept that, should they triumph at Hampden on 8th Dec, and are not behind in the league (who knows they may even be ahead) – then we're set for a 'battle royale' right enough.

    I feel they have a much tougher upcoming league fixture list than Celtic:-

    Hearts (H); Aberdeen (A); Motherwell (A); Hibs (A); Killie (H); and Celtic (A)

    Celtic by comparison have:-

    Ross County (A); Hamilton (H); Hibs (H); Hearts (A); Aberdeen (H); St Mirren (A): TRFC (H)

    Fair play if they outperform CFC, but … (January Sales?)

    Resolution 12 & The Broken Bond
    Notwithstanding the probable validity of the non-penalty for TRFC, I question the wording of Gerrard's statement that the referee " just explained to me he got it wrong right in front of his eyes". The first part might be accurate, but I'm certain he would not have uttered have uttered the last six words.

    Also "he agrees it was blatant". Really!!?? This would imply either incredible naivety on Mr Beaton's part – or, Heaven forbid, an 'honest mistake' .

    I demand to know exactly what he said!

    Apologies for the pedantry, but I think Mr G is getting quite nifty with the 'spin'.

    Resolution 12 & The Broken Bond
    As a lifetime supporter of Celtic Football Club, I felt very saddened and emotional when I saw the headline in the Celtic Star:-

    'Rangers may have been liquidated, but yesterday a little bit of Celtic died' – referring to the Board's stance on Res 12. So true.

    One bit that stood out was when Ian Bankier was asked the relevant question about licensing processes, his answer was that "We have taken Professional advice (I don't believe that for a minute – my words), and are mindful of our duties to shareholders (Dermot Desmond anyone?)".

    I get the business part, but the Board has basically 'shirked its duty, and is arrogantly disrespectful to the ordinary supporters (the vast majority are not shareholders), whilst castigating the Green Brigade (as charitable in their own small way as CFC) who were singled out for costing the club a lot of money (I think Lennon said he could buy a player for the amount!) by their misbehaviour. 

    'Money doesn't talk – it swears' (Bob Dylan).

    Anyway, I'm away the noo(feeling somewhat downheartened)


    Resolution 12 & The Broken Bond
    'Celtic boss Neil Lennon said he'd be interested in bringing back Victor Wanyama – but his current midfield might be so good he doesn't need to'

    Roughly translates as 'No chance we'll be going for him'

    Amongst a lot of other 'guff' e.g. re Resolution 12, from today's AGM, this just irks me (I don't doubt the quality of the current midfielders, but just be honest please).

    On a lighter note elsewhere in Scottish football, I note Morelos value is now in excess of 40 mill – but he's still goin' nowhere (straight from GSL's mouth!)

    Much as I agree, and sympathise, with you (Celtic's cowardly inaction is deplorable), do you honestly think that the police in this country (Scotland) would progress a fraud investigation? The Establishment must be upheld!

    I feel that Nov/Dec (in which Sevco have, on paper, a much tougher fixture list that Celtic) could be a crucial month.

    Should Sevco fail to win the league Cup and are , say, 6 points behind Celtic by the year's end, then the picture becomes much darker for them, and Morelos, despite Gerrard's protests to the contrary, could well be on his way.

    Minor points – Sevco's next three games in Europa League are:-

    Porto (H); Feyoonord (bound to have the Advocaat bounce(?) (A); and Young Boys (H) – and I'm not so sure they will qualify – but then, maybe that's my paranoia!
