Timeline of Dubai events


Recommended Posts

The problem we have here is that the JRG consists of Doncaster, Petrie, Maxwell and an SFA employed doctor.

 

I honestly laughed yesterday when all these lower league clubs were complaining about their leagues being suspended and asking various questions. They had the chance in the summer to make REAL changes to the hierarchy of Scottish football and they voted to continue with the status quo. You reap what you sow.

 

Also, in the case of Rangers. Yes we should privately ask the questions relating to us, but we should also take a step back and watch this unfold while going about our business on the park quietly and professionally.

Why would we want Shane Duffy prevented from playing? We should be doing everything we can to ensure that man starts every match for Celtic. 

 

I'm in the 'stand back and let this play out without comment' camp. We're 21 points ahead, 12 if they win their matches in hand, they've lost half their players for 10 days and even the First Minister is publicly calling them liars. Their squad is weaker than at any point in the last decade and their best players want to leave. Add to that the fury consuming many of their own support and the clear lack of leadership and discipline inside their club. We will never have a better opportunity to win the league than what we have now. We're playing outstanding football, this is in our hands, we can only blow it from here. I urge everyone at Ibrox to ignore the circus across the city and focus entirely on ourselves. Just keep winning, nothing else matters. 

Agree 100%. More proof if needed last night as his heroic "clearance" falls to Hibs player and goal. Cue customary pic of Duffy on his ass in despair

I don't think Celtic should get away scot-free with a blatant disregard of the Covid bubble rules and playing a player who has been outside of their bubble. Our players got 7 games suspension.

 

We can turn a blind eye to it and the favourable treatment of Celtic by the SFA/SPFL will continue unabated, not forgetting the health risk that Celtic created.

Indeed, we welcome the chase.

 

And can we put this in the General football chat section, shouldn't be posts in here about other teams.

This is one of the biggest issues in Scottish football right now so well worth discussing given it directly affects us.

I don't think John was being entirely serious.

 

The Duffy is just another apparent example of what seems like deliberate malfeasance from Celtic with regard to their recent behaviour.  The SFA must act.

Absolutely. 

Give them an inch, they take a foot; give them a foot, they take a yard; give them a yard, they take a furlong; give them a furlong, they take a mile; give them a mile, they take a league....

 

At very least, and immediately, the Club has to ask for, ahem, "clarification" over the apparently disparate treatments of Zungu, and of Duffy. 

 

I would expect the Club, also, to ask for explanation of the immediate 7 game bans dispensed to our twally brains, while, obfuscation, diversion, delay, and  prevarication seems to be the authorities' position re the club like no other. 

 

The Club must also, however distasteful, offer support to those other clubs with genuine grievances following the Dubai debacle, and the handling of it. 

 

I have, of course, no faith in the governance of Scottish fitba', from bitter experience. I will be surprised if the SPFL and/or the SFA pursue rasellik with any vigour. Doncaster gives every appearance of owing his position to it, and knowing it; Maxwell appears out of his depth, and seems to show the courage of no-one's convictions, least of all his own; and as for CO Clerr, if still therr, well she, like her predecessors, displays what can only be interpreted as a distaste for pursuit of shifting sands fc.

That does not mean that the Club should stand back and let the bastards off the hook.

The malfeasance, including that masquerading as incompetence, marring the game in Scotland must be called out.
