Welcome to The Celtic Network FAC Files

the celtic network.fw

When I set up TCN in 2011 it was against the background of the so called ‘shame game’ and the SNP’s ‘Summit’. Little did I realise that football fans from every club in Scotland would be criminalised from the outcome of the SNP’s ‘summit’. I won’t rake over the coals of the ‘shame’ game, we all have eyes in our head and as such know what happened. Continue reading “Welcome to The Celtic Network FAC Files”

Are You Concerned About Fans Harassment ?

Hail, Hail fellow Tims.

Tonight I’ve noticed several of our fellow supporters complaining about fan harassment at today’s match. This is no big surprise to me as I’ve been involved with Fans Against Criminalisation for a couple of years now. However what I’d like to say is that while social media is good for highlighting issues it’s not the right platform to resolve issues.

Statue debate is a distraction.

I noticed today there is a bit of a debate surrounding a proposed statue dedicated to Celt’s For Change. My personal opinion is this. I don’t and could not care less about statues outside Celtic park. Don’t get me wrong it’s nice to commemorate important Celtic people or groups but we have a bigger problem to sort out just now.

We should not be getting bogged down is silly infighting over a statue when we are still waiting for answers from this current board on their relationship with Strathclyde Police now Police Scotland. We are still waiting on answers to why this current board seem reluctant to back Celtic supporters who are being harassed by the Police for alleged ‘Thought crimes’.

So if we are going to have an internal debate in my opinion it should be about this current issue which is far more important to the well being of the entire club than who’s said what regarding Celts for change and what statues people want.

We need this ‘communication’ problem with the board sorted out ASAP, then we can argue about statues.

Hail,Hail

Bigger Picture CSC

Who do you think you are kidding Mr Gray ?

Les Gray, who recently retired as chairman of the Scottish Police Federation was on BBC Newsnight Scotland spinning like a spider on Speed. Quite frankly Mr Gray came across as a petty minded man churning out the party line with no real substance to his rent a gob statements.

Below we will debunk some of Mr Gray’s fantasy remarks with cold hard honest facts. Continue reading “Who do you think you are kidding Mr Gray ?”

Sevco Sectarianism but Police Swamp CATB gig

TCN Supports the Green Brigade

Well once again it’s been a crazy weekend in the ‘best wee country in the world’. Sectarian singing is condemned by an ESPN presenter and they say they will contact the Police and Authorities to ‘see if they can do something’. Once again it takes someone from outside Scotland to highlight the bigotry in the Sevco support. Continue reading “Sevco Sectarianism but Police Swamp CATB gig”

Illicit Scottish Songs. Your move Alex.

Here’s a few Scottish songs that might put you in Jail under the new law.

These songs are openly seditious to the Crown, openly anti English and one openly slates King William of Orange. As a Scotsman I’m proud of these songs. However this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as oppression in Scotland is concerned. Scotland got totally raped in the same way as Ireland did by the English and their home grown collaborators (now known as the Conservative and Unionist Party ).
