‘I Am A Patriot Alright…But I Ain’t Supporting Them’

Firstly can I just remind all at TCN who I am, ‘@brianbhoy07’  been away for a while…not entirely through choice though.

Hey I’m back now anyway, sure did miss you all. 😉

Right well, welcome home speech ticked off my list, I intend to blog a little controversially tonight…you bhoys and ghirls alright with that?!

I am Scottish, I am a proud Scot and I declare no false allegiance to any other nation.

Sure, I like a few of them more than the others but I’m damn glad I’m Scottish, I am an un-apologetic ‘Braveheart’ at well…heart.

That being said, while I’ll always look to Andy Murray playing tennis and cheer him on despite the fact that if I’m being honest I could equally gladly see him eliminated at round one in each competition for reasons three-fold;

(1) I actually hate the very sight of his evil witch like bloody mother…if I won Euromillions tomorrow, first thing I’d probably do would be to hire a Serbian hitman to erase her. (Does anyone else think that apart from it being really bloody sad that his mum follows him around the world like some exhibit of paternal over protectiveness, that perhaps the lad could do with a wee hour or two alone with the gorgeous Kim Sears…I know I could!!) Seriously though, his mum for me stifles his personality, he might even have one if he can put more than 20 yards between him and ‘mother-dear’.

(2) I, as already stated, am a proud Scot. I do not hate the English, I on the other hand hate the fakery of ‘British-ness’…I can certainly do without some up their own arse 99.9% of the time ‘Englishman’ telling me how proud Andy makes us to be British…oops he lost, ah well ‘the young Scot has come up short again. (All the while muttering ‘loser’ under his breath no doubt)  I am 100% Scottish…keep your British tag, in fact shove it up yer a***!!

(3) I would much rather not see a Scot moan any more prolifically than me…I’m the self-appointed grumpiest man is Scotland, god I make Jack Dee look like Michael McIntyre on ecstasy.

Seriously though, I love anything that gives our great nation a cause to pull together and to, in our overly optimistic manner, compete against the best the world has to offer.

We are the kings and queens of coming up short, we have taken ‘glorious failure’ to a new stratosphere of successful-ness.

Yet I still love to throw my weight behind the cause, I will pretty much always get behind a Scottish personality, god I am so blinded by patriotism that I once described ‘Fran and Anna’ as the Lucy Pinder and Keeley Hazell of their day…urrrgghhh!!

I’ll cut a very long and boring story short shall I?!

I may love my nation and be a fervent supporter of all things Scottish but that no longer extends to in football terms.

As International games fast approach us, I could imagine nothing more unappealing to me than throwing the weight of my fervent patriotism at a team who represent all that is wrong with our national sport.

Firstly, Craig Levein…that dude could make an orgasm achieved by having six hours of non-stop, bewilderingly dirty sexy times with Kelly Brook sound and feel like the most mundane and ultimately pointless activity imaginable. He makes Andy Murray sound like Des Clarke high on a cocktail of Helium and LSD.

Secondly and more pressingly, they represent the SFA. An organisation who have dismantled any pride we should have in our game courtesy of years of neglect, years of ineptitude and years of corruption at the helm of our favourite pastime.

I would gladly adopt the patience of our minnow clubs, where unsuccessfulness of our teams results are concerned, in fact for more years than we care to remember, we all have!

Supporting the Scottish national football team is neither good for your physical or mental wellbeing, it is akin to an act of outrageous sadomasicism…yet we threw ourselves blindly behind the cause time after time, after time. Talk about the blind leading the blind!!

I will not go into why I and many others, well everyone not of a seriously Sevco tinted spectacled variety, believe the association to be guilty of an outrageous breach of our trust and of letting ‘The People’ roam freely and unchecked through a labyrinth of pathways to success, all the while provided with the only copy of a route planner and a satellite navigation device and whilst all the other competitors were hamstrung by blindfolds, ball and chains and mischief-making novelty compass.

Sadly however, that is the realism of the situation, we are asked to support an entire football association who care less for our game than the Azerbaijan version should.

I will never whilst the men in charge, linger in positions of responsibility at HQ ‘Hampden’ and who occupy the hottest seats in the corridors of power, be back at a Scotland game, nor even be so interested as to grace it with even my fleeting attention when on television. I wouldn’t piss on Hampden if it joined me at Tommy Sheridan’s favourite fetish friendly swingers club and then begged like a bad, bad girl with a nymphomatic tendency to be showered in my golden goodness!!

I despise Hampden, the SFA, the Scottish Cup and The Scottish League Cup…anything touched or controlled by persons aligned to the running of our national game, is now tarnished to me. I will make no secret of my insistence that I will not spend a penny outside of the SPL and then only whilst Sevco are not parachuted back in to the top flight out with the route of absolute sporting merit.

Still, Sevco, a new club with only a purchased facade of a history and a genuine one of only 3 months of utterly repugnant and reprehensible conduct are seen to call the shots. Still they seem to be able to dodge penalties where others would be either publicly flogged or crucified under Pontius Ogilvie.

I will not, and I would urge all the real football fans of this country, be it of a Celtic, Motherwell, Dundee United or even Dumbarton persuasion, to boycott all forms of SFA matches that are not routine league matches.

I think an empty Hampden, a shockingly low television audience and a financially disastrous run platform is the only way to oust those brass-necked charlatans out of power within our game. Naming, shaming has not worked, this mob cannot be embarrassed into a retreat or to redemption…the only way I see to end their monopoly on the running (down) of our game, is to (as John ‘Bomber’ Brown once said) ‘starve em out’.

That is what I intend to do….I’m sure sheer patriotism may blinker much of your moral righteousness and your heart over-rule your head, I’m sure that your method of justification for getting behind the nation will make sense to you and of course you are entirely welcome to your opinions, your decisions will not be scrutinised by my judgemental self…I’m just laying my thoughts upon the matter thoroughly upon the line.

Take or leave them…just, I beg of you, consider carefully any money you may generate for those delinquents down Kings Park way…those fat cats are not likely to invest even a fraction of their salaries value back in terms their honesty and effort to do what’s best for our game. They are more likely to smuggle your cash out of Hampdens back door and to purchase Sevco shares with it.

I’m done meantime with anything that may cross their palms with silver….stick your International games, I choose Celtic each and every time!

Don’t all shout at once folks!

Hail Hail

  3. ‘shooglynifty’ Thanks buddy, always nice to meet the fans.

    No I don’t get paid to write an article per-say…I get paid per response I receive, so thanks for the donation.

      1. This payday is going to be a good one, god knows you must really admire my work.
        You know for all your support I’ll send you a signed picture if you want…I’ll throw in a new dummy too since you seem to have thrown your last one out the pram.
        Sure your not a Sevco fan in disguise?

        1. Not at all, i’ll take that one as a compliment, as they say on CQN, you haven’t arrived till you are called a Hun. I’m Irish, don’t bother with the Irish squad and only follow Celtic. As the old saying goes, Assumptions are the mother of all fuck-up’s.

          The point i was making is that your article is not very articulately written and just doesn’t make much sense. I know very few Scottish Celtic supporters that support the Scottish national side, so the point you laboriously laboured through was mute to say the least.

          Buy a lotto ticket with my contriution, you never know,

          It could be you.

          Slán anois, agus bíodh lá maith agat.

          1. Ah well, I can’t please all of the people all of the time huh!

            You, whether a Sevco or a Celtic fan are absolutely entitled to your opinion, much as I am mine.

            You interestingly choose to throw in an odd cliché or three, the assumptions one springing immediately to mind.

            You then make a massive assumption of you own and state that in what must be a fairly limited experience you have noted not many Scottish Celtic fans to support the national team (I wont even highlight the double usage of laboriously and laboured…can’t say fairer than that huh?!)…only the majority of Celtic fans I know here in Scotland, and especially in my very divided area of west Scotland, do actually support the national team….but hey nobody is perfect.

            Will we call that a ‘fuck up each?! 😉

            Oh and I have my Mensa membership so if I come across as lacking articulacy, that’d be by design. :-p

            You can wear your badge of honour and I’ll buy that lotto ticket.

            Cheers again

  5. Brianbhoy, what a reply to shooglynifty. Brilliant. I agree 100% with your thoughts on everything SFA. I am also Scottish and proud and a better Scotsman than the sleekit sectarian morons at Hampden that (and i still cant believe it) run Scottish football. I will be making sure i give not one shiney penny towards these gutter rat scum. Its so sad these gutless wonders are still in power. Do they think we aw came up the Clyde on a banana boat. I find words hard to explain these people. Anyway, come on you bhoys in green. I’ll always support them with everything i’ve got.

    1. John buddy, thanks for reading and for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.

      I’ll not always be everybody’s cuppa tea but hey he put himself out there, so hell mend him.

      I’m glad it ain’t just me then, I understand that anyone who chooses to continue following Scotland is far from being a traitor but my personal choice is to shun anything which could possibly thicken their wallets. Glad you agree buddy.

      Hail Hail

  7. You lost my interest by the end of the first sentence in point 1. It may be that you were trying to be humorous in a brutal weegie way, but the tone is more sevco than Celtic.

    I do however agree that the sharks and charlatans that hold power in the game – Regan, Doncaster, Ogilvie to name but three of many, need to be dispensed with. Our game has nosedived since the moment these cretins gained control. The ongoing and consecutive debacles that are supposed to be broadcast contracts; the blatant support and protection of a club known to have cheated for at least 12 years and subsequent failure, in fact, refusal to punish them according to the rules and articles of any league, association or ruling body with jurisdiction; the lies; the different punishments for players and coaching staff depending on the club you ply your trade for; the abject lack of care or attention to detail in carrying out their business; the absolute ignorance and continued refusal to learn from their mistakes; – all of these things are why I will not give my money to any club but Celtic or who they are playing in the SPL.

    You make a good argument for not supporting anything financially that keeps these twonks in positions of power, but leave the hatred and bile – especially the personal stuff to the sevconian hordes.

    1. You’ve absolutely lost me on the ‘hatred and bile’ comment especially since you go on to slander the reputation of all ‘weggies’ in one brutal swipe but hey ho…I’m a very big bhoy so I won’t lose any sleep if that’s how you read into it.

      The jovial side of course is dependent on whether you share my sense of humour, obviously you didn’t and hey that’s fine by me.

      I am glad that so far the consensus is for spending our hard earned monies on our own club and within our own league structure, the Champions League will provide us with all the additional buzz that surrounds a cup competition and we have been stitched up enough by those in power at the SFA.

      Anyhow thanks for reading and replying.

      I won’t apologise for telling it as I see even if it has somehow offended you. That is my style, it is how I have always been and I’m not intending changing anytime soon, glad you read on though.

      Hail Hail
