John Guidetti … why don’t you do your talking on the park, instead of mouthing off in the media?
See, you read comments like that on social media and you’d almost swear he had been mouthing off. Except he hadn’t.
Yet again, our media is playing games. Naughty games. Cheeky games. Spinning comments to generate the headlines that they want.
It’s pretty poor, but it’s what we’ve come to expect and the reason so many of us treat them with total disregard. Only on certain occasions do I even bother to comment … this is one of them.
Big Bad John hasn’t been scoring recently. We all know that. That’s why it was such a surprise to read big banner headlines telling us that he was threatening to score a hat trick against Sevco. How silly can someone be?
Me, not Big Bad John. For thinking he actually had said such a thing.
I’ll admit it; when I heard it I thought; “Can he really have been so stupid?”
Answer: Of course not, except in that he trusted the press to give an honest account of what he said.
It was not, as some in the press wanted us to think, prideful boasting about what he is going to do on the pitch.
John, that’s a laudable target. I don’t think I’m alone in hoping you do the job … and then some. Apologies for thinking you’d be so daft.
The gutter hacks got their moment though. They got Celtic fans critcising. They secured their hits. They wound up the Sevco fans, who, and let’s face it, don’t need winding up when you consider that the match referee is on record as saying they were treating appallingly by the Scottish game, and Neil Doncaster is telling us they didn’t actually die.
Oh to be a Sevconian, surrounded by such sycophancy. You’d think they’d have learned by now that it only leads to chaos, and crisis.
Some of their fans are demanding the club stick Guidetti’s “words” up on the dressing room wall.
I say go for it. Why not?
If your whole club is built on a lie, you might as well paper the inside of the stadium with them.
As for the media … they really have no shame … and they cannot be trusted at all.
I trust the big chap will bear that in mind.
