So The Village Idiot’s latest piece has backed Fashion Sakala, but admitted that he might end up looking like an eejit. Well, give that man a prize for stating the obvious. His support for him is typical of this joker.
Sakala has demonstrated a breath-taking ignorance of and contempt for what Celtic has achieved.
It’s as if the nine point lead didn’t apply, as if we weren’t at the current time defending league champions.
His comments were a disgrace.
Idiot Boy thinks that because fans say nasty things to each other that makes everything fine. But fans will do that, and have been doing it since football had fans.
Players have traditionally been more respectful of their fellow pros, even rivals.
He is not as dumb as he sometimes comes across, but in this case I think maybe he actually is that stupid.
But if he thinks that this is kosher, he’s a bigger moron than even I thought.
He knows how tense these games already are.
Players who act this irresponsibly should be called out for it, not defended to the hilt.
And if he doesn’t know that … wow.
And if this is such standard stuff, how come Celtic never engages in it?
How come Celtic thinks the whole thing is beneath contempt?
Carter Vickers and McGregor sat there yesterday and spoke openly about respecting every opponent. There was none of this egotism, none of this drum banging, none of this playing to the gallery.
Frankly, Celtic fans like seeing our players act in this manner.
It speaks volumes for the attitudes of everyone at the club.
His entire column, which is basically just a defence of mindless hatred, sounds to me like a classic example of someone who has spent so many years viewing the world through the prism of his loathing that he thinks that it’s a perfectly normal way to live life.
It doesn’t matter either if, as he suggests, that there is an underlying dislike between the people at both clubs.
It is the responsibility of both clubs to behave professionally and to act in a mature and sensible manner. Something else that this clown would know little about.
His actual defence of Sakala is preposterous.
“There are far too many players who just say what the club press officer wants them to say these days. Sakala clearly isn’t one of them and that is refreshing to see,” he said.
Is he kidding?
Does he think Sakala plucked those words out of the air?
As I said the other day, someone got in his ear and he basically just repeated what he was told. What’s refreshing about a guy spouting off words that someone else put in his mouth?
This is another area where their club reeks of unprofessionalism and recklessness.
Honestly, those comments were absolutely ridiculous and in defending them this eejit has shown again why he should be kept away from the keyboard for his own good and for the good of his paper.
Almost nobody in punditry thinks Sakala did the right thing the other day and a lot of their own fans think his comments were ridiculous coming at a time when we have that league lead.
A lot of them are embarrassed by this and they should be.
They look at Celtic these days and you know what they see?
A manager and a squad which acts with dignity.
Aye, there’s that word.
It has been a long time since they could claim it for themselves.
A pair of brown brogues isn’t enough by a long shot.
