Thread: Possible £250,000 into club funds?

  1. #21
    Does it really matter? Money or no money Celtic are that far ahead of the rest of us in the league and probably will be for seasons to come. The only challenge is who's going to finish second

    Did we not get cash from their success last campaign ?
    "Bigoted knobend" are certainly the words that spring to my mind whenever I hear this attitude that anyone who dislikes Celtic or isn't prepared to lick their buttcracks is 'bigoted' for some reason. It's very narrow minded and moronic, devoid of any reason or logic, but so prevalent in this part of the world where so many football fans are either Celtic minded or influenced by Celtic in their way of thinking, like you seem to be with those stupid remarks.

    To dislike any football club is not bigoted, indeed that particular football club have many valid reasons to dislike them, one of which being labelling anyone who doesn't share their views as bigoted, which in itself is bigoted in the literal sense of the word.

    I can see where you're coming from LSM. Yes, of course the £250k will help the club, especially in relation to clubs in lower divisions. However it won't improve competition in the Premiership, quite the reverse in fact. Europe is nothing other than a big boys club, run for them by them.

    Well said jwok, comments like that deserve to be shouted down and dismissed as they are idiotic, stupid and totally uncalled for.

    t was not I who wrote ""Bigoted knobend” but wrote words requiring their construction into meaningful statement.
    The word knob means "a rounded lump or ball, especially at the end or on the surface of something”
    If one wishes to take the slang meaning, that is your choice. Perhaps should have used "ball end" or “big lump".. my apologies.
    However, no doubting you are a Richard !

    You're really sh1te at being a smart @rse, really sh1te.

    To be honest, I have no problem with being called a knobend or similar, I can be at times. It was your use of the word 'bigoted' that I take exception to as you have absolutely no basis for that whatsoever and if anything makes you sound a bit bigoted yourself to have such an extreme opinion.

    It seems we were wrong about the £250k windfall....it's £365k! Roughly 12.5% of our turnover according to AB in this piece.

    Alan Burrows is entitled to his opinion, it's in his interests in his job role that we make money so he's hardly going to come out in the press and say that he hopes they get gubbed and he doesn't care about the money side of things is he? His position would be untenable if he did.

    I however stand by my position that it's nothing for us to be celebrating.

    Lawsteelman does that mean Alan Burrows does not have the club's best interest as using your logic in previous posts he must have a liking for Celtic!

    As I said in my first post the money side of things I prefer to leave to those running the club to concern themselves over and Alan Burrows, as General Manager, falls into the category of "those running the club".

    As a supporter and someone who is more concerned with what happens on the field then I don't see any reason to celebrate getting some crumbs from Celtic's banquet. It won't be invested in the team and we won't see it until the end of the season. I can't think why anyone would be happy to see Celtic sweep all before them giving us no chance whatsoever of competing for silverware as they bag treble after treble as they will do as they get richer and bigger. Don't you ever want to beat them again, or better still see us lift one of the domestic Cups?

    Dearie, dearie me ! Only got 3 points to make on this thread;
    1. For our club (and all others in SPL - except Sevco obviously ) to get £365K for doing hee-haw is not to be sniffed at. Not exactly crumbs IMO.
    2. I believe there's no need for us to receive the dosh before the end of the season - from what I've read / heard, we're in a fairly decent place finance-wise for a change. This 'money in the bank' will no doubt be used to pay some funds back to Sir Les, but I don't think all of it will, so no rush to get it. As every other team's in the same boat no-one gains any advantage.
    3. Anyone who thinks our supporters don't want to beat Smelltic or Sevco ever again is frankly living on another planet. There's simply no better feeling for a true 'Well fan than to ram it right up either of those club's jacksies.

    I don't care if the money comes from Celtic ,rangers ,Motherwell or anyone else making progress in Europe. If it can help the club on and off the field then surely we can't be complaining about it
