Sabato è stato formalmente incoronato #CarloIII, il nuovo re del Regno Unito, e come era prevedibile diverse tifoserie di calcio non hanno fatto mancare la loro disapprovazione. A partire ovviamente da quella del #Celtic, che sta per confermarsi campione di Scozia.

👇 Image
Lo striscione è stato esposto ieri contro l'Hearts of Midlothian, ma già qualche giorno prima, sfidando i Rangers in Coppa di Scozia, erano stati fatti cori contro la monarchia britannica.

Proprio sabato, invece, erano stati i tifosi dell'Hibernian di Edimburgo a esporre uno striscione contro l'incoronazione del monarca: "Fanculo l'incoronazione, sfamate i poveri!".

#Celtic #Folklore

Oh dear lord, great spirit divine,
Creator of all things, above and sublime,
What is to become of me, in this moment of time,
As I exist, lost and alone, in this world of grime? Image
If not me, then who, to navigate this path,
Of despair and darkness, where hope takes a bath,
Am I to be an orphan, for all my days to come,
With no one to hold my hand, in this world so glum?

2/ Image
If not now, then when, will I find my way,
Out of this abyss, where I'm lost every day,
Am I to lose in life's race, from now on,
Or will I find the strength, to rise at dawn?

Imagine, if you will, a world in which chaos reigns supreme.

A world in which the rain falls down in torrents, flooding the streets and homes of those who call it home. In the midst of this deluge, one man stands alone, desperate for salvation.

#KAOS ImageImageImage
He cries out to a higher power, begging for someone to take the blame for the tragedy that has befallen him.

The water rises around him, threatening to consume him, and he knows that he is powerless to stop it.

#KAOS ImageImageImage
In the midst of this chaos, he wonders whose star is falling, whose fortunes have been lost in the torrential downpour.

He watches as the world around him is washed away, piece by piece, until there is nothing left but a desolate wasteland.

The main problem of Switzerland: besides YB and Basel, no team could gather enough coefficient points to be seeded in the most crucial qualifying rounds.

Who can be the 3rd power in Swiss Football?

#rotblaulive #BSCYB #fczuerich #fcluzern #fclugano #ServetteFC #FCSG #FCThun
Just compare this to Austria. They have currently 5 teams with a coefficient over 10.

This makes it so much easier to have a shot in the qualifying stages. Except when you meet Vaduz, of course 😉

#RedBullSalzburg #LASK #RapidWien #WAC #SturmGraz #AustriaWien #TSVHartberg
Still, things do not look so bad for next season. Basel qualifying will be crucial once again. Current prediction:

YB: UCL Group Stage (Pot 4)
FCSG: EL Group Stage (Pot 4)
Servette: UECL Group Stage (Pot 4)
Basel: UECL Group Stage (Pot 1)
Lugano: Out in QF

This would be epic!

#Celtic #FolkloreSunday: „#Irish mythology is liberally sprinkled with tales of the deeds of female druids: Biróg is a druidess who, in one version of the myth, was involved in saving the baby #Lugh from being drowned by his grandfather, Balor; #Tlachtga was the daughter of
Mog Ruith, a powerful blind sorcerer, associated with the Hill of Ward and the November 1st fire festival of Samhain; Bé Chuille was a Danann Druidess who was involved in the defeat of Carman, the #Celtic witch; Queen Medb was warned by the Danann druidess and seer, Fedelma,
of the defeat of her army.“

5 points if it you get it in Round 1, 4 points in Round 2, etc.

@ScottishFA lying about VAR already. A thread.
1/ “Hawk-Eye technology is designed to calibrate an accurate offside frm either of the 2 18-yard line camera positions, with the subsequent VAR review determining that the Celtic player had received the ball in an offside position"
2/ Let's examine that explanation. Hawk-Eye technology provides an indication of a a players point on contact with the ball. Not what position they are in. That's down to the VAR, and is why we have cameras. From the EPL guidelines "Hawk-Eye can also use any broadcast camera...
3/ identify the point of contact with the ball by the attacker, and synchronises all cameras for this purpose." Also "Hawk-Eye calibrates multiple cameras to give many options when showing an offside decision in the event that a body part is covered in one camera."

🧵UEFA Ranking history

Time to go back in time. This thread shows the football teams who collected the most points for the UEFA country ranking since season 1955/56, in the last 67 years (!)

First the overall ranking, then I'll provide the stats for the big nations 👇👇👇
Real Madrid has clearly been the most successful football club in the last 67 years.

Over 150 points collected overall, this is insane.

Bayern and Benfica complete the podium. Also in top 10: Manchester United, Barca, Juventus, Ajax, Porto, Milan, Dynamo Kyiv
1. 🇪🇸ESP: 469 points
Spain has clearly been the most successful football nation in the last 67 years.

Shining beacon is Real Madrid, but FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid did also contribute their fair share.

After UEFA’s ruling that no Russian clubs will participate in its competitions until further notice, it is now certain that the winners of the Scottish Premiership will qualify automatically for the group stage of the Champions League without having to go through a play-off.
As Celtic realistically only need three points to secure the title (given their vastly superior goal difference), it looks likely that they will take Scotland’s Champions League place, so I thought it would be interesting to estimate how much this might be worth #CelticFC
#CelticFC have received £133m from Europe in TV distributions from UEFA in the last 10 years, but the difference between earnings from the Champions League (£92m in 4 years) and the Europa League (£41m in 6 years) is stark.

One unusual @CelticFC history story features the circus.

In 1893 it was advertised that a team of "past & present" Celtic players would participate in a tour of Scotland as part of @CircusGinnett shows.

They would play 6-a-side games versus local teams.


#celtic #celticfc
There is some dubiety about these claims.

Certainly some people involved had played for @CelticFC but many hadn't.

It's unlikely Celtic even knew about this, even if all circus adverts said it was an official team. Nowadays litigation would stop such claims!


The only notable former @CelticFC player to be involved was the circus team captain, "General McLaren".

James (Jimmy) McClaren played for Celtic in the 1880s/1890s. His nickname was the "Ould Gineral (or General)".…

A fascinating insight into @CelticFC supporters' clubs in the past.

These are the 1960s membership rules for the @DundeeCeltic Travel Club (likely similar to when it was formed in 1948).

Very strange seeing rules against women members.


@csasocialclub #celtic #celticfc
The rules are the same type you'd find in any private members' club at the time.

As member of the @csasocialclub, they would likely have been repeated by other @CelticFC supporters' clubs.

This includes a commitment to be non-political and non-sectarian.


#celtic #celticfc
Other rules describe disciplinary and general membership procedures, or outline the process of electing office bearers.

Nowadays it's easy to listen to Celtic songs between streaming music, CDs and sites like YouTube.

But in the past it was harder to do so. In the 1990s, various CDs were released with famous @CelticFC songs.

This thread looks at some of those CDs.

#celtic #celticfc #celticsongs
The first CD release in the 1990s available in the @CelticFC shops (that I remember) was 'The Celtic Songs EP'.

Released in 1994, it featured four songs:

The Celtic Song
The Johnny Thompson Song
The Fields of Athenry
You'll Never Walk Alone

#celtic #celticfc #celticsongs
This CD was followed in 1995 by 'The 2nd Celtic Songs EP'.

This had the @CelticFC first team from different years (1964, 1970, 1977) singing songs:

Over and Over
Celtic are here
Celtic, Celtic

Jimmy Johnstone also sang 'Passing Time'.

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

El #HiloDelDia:

#Rangers🔵 ganó esta semana #SPL🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (LigaEscocia) tras 10 años, cortando hegemonía de su enemigo natural (#Celtic🟢), rompiendo records (sobró 6 jornadas), renacido desde 4ªDivisión y refundado.

Esta es la historia del ‘gigante’ que regresó de entre los muertos. Image
El #Rangers🔵ha ganado más Ligas que ningún otro club del mundo (55), Copa (33) y CopaLiga (27), sumando 7 veces ‘Triplete Nacional’.

Siendo, además, primer equipo de las Islas en jugar Final Europea (1961) y club con más internacionales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Y, sin embargo, todo quebró en 2012… Image
En febrero 2012, las deudas (90Mill€+impagos impuestos), aniquilan al #Rangers🔵.

Lo gestiona un administrador judicial, acreedores, quiebra, sanción 10puntos Liga y una orden: Acabar deuda, YA.

Vendiendo. Instalaciones, estadio, futbolistas…
Todo Rangers, en venta. Image

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...
