Celtic Explodes The Media’s False Narrative, But Still Some Hacks Want To Push It.

Image for Celtic Explodes The Media’s False Narrative, But Still Some Hacks Want To Push It.

All week long, we had to endure a torrent of negativity.

It was the expected consequence of losing the cup semi-final, and especially when that loss was to the media darlings of Ibrox. The hacks were getting pretty excited about the possibility that our season might be starting to unravel.

To be fair, they’ve been writing the same sort of stuff all the way through the campaign, whenever we left it late to win or dropped any points.

Some of them are still desperately trying to push their shaky case this morning, with nonsense being written about how we looked “jaded” (Keith Jackson) or how we were “nervy” (from the BBC, the retirement home of ex-Ibrox players.).

But most of the hacks now realise that the gig is up.

Most of them now realise that this Celtic team is going to win this title, that we will be champions. Still, the tiresome nonsense continues to be perpetuated that this a team which is stumbling towards the line.

Our form this season has been exceptional. Last weekend we were poor.

Yesterday we were in total command of the game from start to finish.

A couple of our big players, who have been a little off-form of late, came back to the fore. Jota, in particular, was exceptional and we needed him to be. The one thing this team did not look was jaded.

Jackson and his colleagues are pretty miffed that we made such light work of what they were all hoping would be a banana skin fixture.

Even Hatate, who the press took such great delight in portraying as a guy on his last legs last weekend, put in a shift on the day and, of course, Maeda continues to be a miraculous example of what supreme fitness looks like … he once again covered every blade of grass and linked up brilliantly with Kyogo.

Some of our hacks are clearly fuming.

I hope Keevins is one of them with the utter garbage he turned out yesterday with all his talk about Black Sunday. Let them continue to underestimate this team and its will to win … let them continue to deny that we are on the brink of being a great, great side. In the end, the title party will happen … and they will have to cover it.

When they do they have to acknowledge something far darker than anything they’ve had to face so far; if we could win this league from such a dreadful opening round of fixtures, how can anyone hope to stop us next season if we hit the ground running?

With a proper pre-season instead of the chaos of the last one, this team is going to be very, very hard to beat far less stop on our quest for another title.

  • Bob (original) says:

    Yesterday did feel like a hugely significant win, despite the team being a bit off.

    Sevco have run out of games, and a draw on Sunday should suffice.

    And thank goodness, we should avoid a ‘helicopter Sunday’!

    • Stephen McAdam says:

      A draw?! Nonsense! We will hammer! Der hun and it’s then CELTICBRATION time! It is! Won then! So everyone should Celticbrate! Players fans everyone of us! ????

  • Starman says:

    Unleash Rogic, Kyogo & Jota in the 1st 25 mins nxt wk & we’re 3 up & it’s PARTY TIME! They will be COMPLETELY KNACKAD chasing shadows on Thu against Leipzig, a week tae remember!!

  • Martin H. says:

    There’s a good Glasgow word for the media in this country, “FUDS”.

  • harold shand says:

    Best player in the country makes his first start in 3 months and scores the goal of the weekend to keep us on track for the title they all said we had no chance of winning.

    Keith Jackson and the Daily Record are so rattled that they’re pinning their hopes on Scott Wright their 4th choice striker to be their saviour .

    • Scud Missile says:

      A right good scudding from the Germans on Thursday a walkover for us on the Sunday and Hearts stuff them in the final of cup and it then becomes a DISASTROUS season for the klan and their 10 year old klub.
      But no doubt at that point the media will be crying out for Tav as player of the year and Gio Fanny as manager,lol imagine awarding FAILURE.

  • Johnny Green says:

    It was a great first half yesterday but the second half when we were only one up was certainly nervy for me. A one goal gap is never enough until that final whistle blows and it was a great relief for me when we got the second. All in all it was a well deserved victory but my nerves certainly were a bit frayed for a wee while.

    The ice cream and jelly however are now ready for the scoffing.

    • Scud Missile says:

      I thought it was a bit nervy at times myself so to see that 2nd goal go in when it did what a relief.

  • Johnny Green says:

    Incidentally James i agree with you that our performance should not be described as nervy, but there were definitely nervy moments.

  • Scud Missile says:

    The media spoke about us being burned out and finished,let’s here what they say about sevco after double header coming up 2 big games in 4 days surely they will be the klub that are burned out.
    Or will we only here that part after a couple of heavy defeats for them.

  • Bennybhoy57 says:

    My nerves were shattered until we got that second goal.
    CV was in control, starfelt was playing well, but giving me the fear with his daft fouls near our box.
    Ralston, Taylor solid.
    Ange Coolest guy in the ground..apart from first 10 mins when Callagan done mcgregor then Ralston.
    Could tell, with the head shake he was thinking here we go again.

  • Bob says:

    Some players were off last week which can happen but brother boaby should be asked to watch the game again by those that run Scottish football and comment on the attacks on Celtic players by the thug lugstrum and career threatening tackles on us.He maybe needs a refresher coarse on how to manage a game and protect players which is his duty
