I think the SPFL, previously the SPL, was an artificial construct set up with the specific aim of furthering the interests of two teams only. These two teams cannot lose within this system. One o

Don't think there was a conspiracy, just the Tims looking out for the Tims and the league looking the other way as usual. It's just deemed an acceptable thing, just like it was acceptable to fix the d

Thing is when the Tribute Act were out of the top flight the clubs tried to vote through changes one club voted with Celtic to keep the status quo. Aberdeen are complicit in this state of affairs.

Lots of Tims turning on Lennon tonight. Remember debates on here in the past about how much of a ‘winner’ he is. 

Only really a winner in domestic football whilst a player/manager of the team with the biggest budget? Or could he do it elsewhere?
 

From memory he won fuck all at hibs.......

Just read some shite on bbc news about Celtic going out again to inferior opposition.

Micky Mouse countries like Hungary and Romania.

It’s never going to sink in that Scottish football is no better than the quality in central Europe.

More successful at Hibs than he was at Bolton
Finished 18th in his first season and the following season he left in March with them bottom of the league (22.8% win ratio). Bolton were eventually relegated

Celtic have signed midfielder David Turnbull from Motherwell for a fee of around £3m - 14 months since a previous move for the 21-year-old collapsed.

He has signed a four-year contract with the Scottish champions.

Turnbull's move to the Glasgow club was halted in June 2019 after a medical indicated he required surgery on a knee injury.

He played only twice last season on his return from injury but has featured in Well's five games this term.

Turnbull has made 41 appearances overall since coming through the Fir Park youth system, scoring 16 goals, including one against Livingston this season.

 

Not really sure that this dramatically weakens Motherwell as they seemed to manage just fine last season without him.

Similarly not overly convinced that this actually strengthens Victim FC either.

The true face of Celtic FC

A separate legal entity, good lord.

 

I read that this morning, fucking horrendous. I don't believe that there was some overarching Tim conspiracy that provided a haven for predators, but there was clearly an attitude at the time that they could brush it all under the carpet, which led to others being victims. A Savileseque tragedy like. In many ways, the reaction to it all is as humiliating as the act. The extent to which a private company will go to protect its profits - because that is what this is now about - is obscene. It'd be interesting to see how many players went through the Celtic boys club system in those days and how integrated with the club it was. It was allowed to use their name, their strips, their facilities etc etc, but was retained as a separate entity for whatever reason. Does that mean that the boys club was recompensed every time they brought a player through and that they were part of a competing marketplace whereby they supplied players to all clubs - to the highest bidder? Or are Celtic free to credit themselves for every single player that came through the system, apart from those that were abused?

If it were the dons in this situation, I'd hand back my season ticket and be on here arguing that everyone should do similar. I'd expect a big campaign from supporters to force the club to do the right thing. Are Celtic fans doing this at scale? Why not? Two cheeks indeed. Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe I'd be in the minority of dons' fans. The partisan relationship supporters have for their clubs is irrational at best, so perhaps most would justify it by taking the club's line or arguing that it was a long time ago.

Celtic supporters will defend anything, just look at Scott Brown's defence of obvious racist Tonev, even after he was convicted of racially abusing Logan. He went on a victim blaming rant. He should also have been charged with bringing the game into disrepute, being an advocate of racist abuse. He was Scotland captain at the time ffs.

The Celtic View sold copy and took credit for the boys club's success. That alone shows a blatantly obvious link between the youth team and the senior club. They made money out of the sales of the Celtic View, which took credit for the youth team's success. It could not be any more clear and obvious that both are one and the same club.

As for Torbett being sacked and brought back again, words fail me on that. Certainly lends credence to the BJK argument. I'm not certain Big Jock was the unimpeachable character he seems to have become since his untimely demise in the dugout. In fact, there's a chance he would have been in court too if he was still alive.

In an article full of revolting and shocking events, the threats and other abuse aimed at Andy Gray's sister and mother from (presumably) Celtic fans is almost as disturbing as anything else.

Yes that was vile.

Torbett sounded as if he was well connected, which maybe aided him in getting away with it for some time. Barry Bennell was a similar character.

That was bad, but also quite easy to deflect and pass blame onto a handful of nutters that all support has (or it could have been connections of torbett or whatever), which is likely the case. It takes the heat off the missing millions (billions?) of Celtic fans who are handing their money to a club that's deliberately shirking its responsibility to the victims with the use of an organisational technicality. They're the ones that are morally wrong here, they're the ones that allow this type of shite to happen with their look the other way, it was somebody else, attitude. Unless they are doing something, and I'm not aware of it, which wouldn't surprise me!

They have paid compensation to at least one person, so I would think that will open the floodgates for all of them.

However, it's decades after the event. They tried to get away without paying anything.

Seriously hoping these cunts get run ragged and ripped a new one tonight by Milan.

Couple of injuries wouldn't go amiss either

Not wishing career ending injuries on anyone but enough to keep them out for the next 10/14 days would suffice😉

Lennon has lost the plot, and the knives are out for him. He has no idea who leaked his team last week before the bigot fest.

I think they are there for the taking, both by AC Milan, and Aberdeen. I'm not sure his players are playing for him anymore.

Aye, a pity it's not the semi this weekend.

Well watching that shower last night whilst hugely satisfying does however make our failure to lay a glove on them to any great extent all the more annoying, as they patently are nowhere near the side they were.

If the knives weren't out for Lennon before, they most certainly are now.

Reckon if we'd actually beaten them last Sunday then Lennon would be out the door by mid day today.
