Hi its me again, bet you didn’t expect to hear from me TWICE in one day, Well I’m going to put that down to my blogging experience, or lack of in this case. I posted my ‘The Brucehill Report’ blog earlier on this afternoon, anticipating a very slow news day indeed (I didn’t even know about the CIS Cup Draw..when do they tell us about that anyway?) So you can imagine how angry, daft, foolish I felt when I seen the news that a big Celtic story had broke on a Friday, my day for blogging!
Well I’ve decided to be greedy(or kind) and give you an extra bit of Dan today! Yous lucky old bunch!
Surprise surprise, Cilla Black used to cry.
Now, When Dougie McDonald awarded Rangers a penalty in a key Scottish Cup quarter final clash at Ibrox against Dundee United, despite the goalkeeper touching the ball before he collided with Kenny Miller, no one in the press went against his decision, it was the correct decision they cried. Fast forward 7 months and a near similar experience occurs, ironically enough at Tannadice, when Gary Hooper collects a lovely reverse pass from Georgios Samaras, as he bears down on goal, Gary Kenneth decides to interfere with the striker, causing Hooper to lose his rhythm and control of the ball momentarily. To Hooper’s credit and honesty, he stays on his feet and then touches the ball away from Dusan Pernis (Hooper’s hits the ball off the keeper, the keeper makes no conscience contact with the ball) who clatters Hooper to the floor. Dougie McDonald gives the penalty. Then he consults the linesman (who hasn’t flagged, he hasn’t mouthed, he’s simply followed the correct procedures when a penalty is given) then doubtless Douglas reverses his decision and awards a bounce ball.
So everyone thinks the linesman changed the ref’s decision, as the media and Hugh Dallas convey to the public. However it is near obvious from watching the footage, and they way Steven Craven ran around to the 6 yard box anticipating a penalty, that he did NOT change the decision of the referee Dougie McDonald. Various reasons were tested by the Celtic fans:
1. Dougie McDonald Cheated Celtic 2. The SFA Cheated Celtic. 3. Both 1 and 2 Combined
Celtic and Neil Lennon are rightly furious, and take their fury to the SFA, who confirm they will conduct an ‘investigation’ of the decision. Craven Resigns, with it being said (allegedly remember) that he is resigning due to the fact McDonald and Dallas hung him out to dry to cover their own cheating backs. Of course the media and the SFA would have you believe you the right honourable Steven Craven is resigning due to the pressure Neil Lennon and Celtic have placed him under. Not the fact he’s been made a scapegoat for the SFA’s cheating and their lies.
So between the result of their ‘investigation’ Celtic are blatently cheating in an Old Firm derby when Willie Collum gives Rangers a penalty which 1. He can’t even see. And 2. It was a dive in the first place. So Celtic are rightly and very justifiably angry with how they are being treated. (Oh did I mention Joe Ledley’s disallowed goal on Wednesday Night when he was 4 Yards onside?)
So when the SFA back their referee’s aswell as leave the Linesman (who is no longer their employee may I add) to hang in the midst of the Celtic wrath, it is only right that we voice our frustration and it is only right now that Celtic, from Lawwell and Reid to the Kit Man and the Tea Lady take action against such cheating and lies. Now my theory is, that Steven Craven was forced to resign last week, which makes the SFA’s job easier now when they can just blame a former employee for cheating against Celtic.
Craven does not resign. The results of the SFA ‘investigation’ are publicised, with Craven apparently taking the full blame because it was he who shouted ‘Dougie Dougie’ (Dougie Btw then ‘unpromptedly’ went to speak to Craven) and thats why Celtic were not awarded one penalty, despite there being two stonewall appeals to give one. Craven, still an SFA employee, resigns after the ‘investigation’ has had its results publicised. Causing even the daftest of timmies to go ‘Oh…wait a minute, somethings not right there’ and then the smartest of us tims out there would piece the jigsaw together to finally expose the SFA’s cheating, their lies, and their undeniable bias against Celtic, and for Rangers.
So even despite Craven revealing on his facebook that everything in his life is fantastic and everyones not to worry, and despite resigning and creating the stir in all this mess, has he just maybe conformed to the SFA one last time, and resigned before they even put the noose around his neck? hmm…conspiracies. Note that also there won’t be an investigation into the penalty given against Celtic by Willie Collum (so there’ll be no ‘Willie Willie’ speeches branded in the press, sweeping the cheating bias against Celtic under the carpet again).
There is only one form of action Celtic must take and that is Bhoycott. And if Reid and co are up to the task, I’m sure the Celtic fans will be. Remember all revolutions start from the bottom.
I’ve Been Brucehillbhoy (again) And I Dont Miss Them And Hit The Wall
