On Yet Another Landmark Day…An Appeal To Support James Cameron & His Hard Work On Our Behalf’

Just a short plug for James and all his tireless work on behalf of the Celtic faithful;

Today, as I often have, I considered just how accurate and how far ahead of the media, the (late) Rangers and Sevco supporters and the authorities we bampots have been. I wrote extensively, time and time again since the admin process at RFC*RIP* began as to how Mr Whyte would be pulling strings long after his public involvement appeared to have concluded, I said how he appeared to have a hand in selecting Duff & Phelps and therefore in influencing which bids were acceptable, how he would never have sold the club, by which he stood to make serious money from, for the miserly sum of a pound. I said that he constructed the Charles Green consortium, how Charles Green hid the identities of the initial consortium and still to this date does and to how John Bomber Brown may not have been far wrong speculating who still holds security over the Ibrox title deeds…I was never fooled and obtained information to suggest that Craig Whyte was still to be financially recompensed before the club was truly in somebody else’s hands, how Mr Green may have chosen to follow an alternative non-footballing blueprint for his business but for his stark realisation as to how much cold hard cash he could tease out of the ‘loyal’ Ibrox subjects hands, pockets, purses and wallets with little more than an act of Presbyterian solidarity and a siege mentality, nothing ventured nothing gained was his attitude towards this previously less than seriously considered route of business.

For all that I am not to-date 100% accurate with my musings or in any of the seemingly credible information I had received and communicated, some may yet come to pass and so the old blogs are well worth revisiting….James and his endeavour to publish a successfully supported non-profit book, by e and by hardback versions, will hopefully turn over quite a few quid to the charities we’ve adopted here at TCN, more over again, it may one day be a document of permanence in the testifying to the ways of a wonderfully informed and articulate, forthright and reasoned, anticipatory and accurate nature of Celtic minded bampottery.

If it fails to match up to those qualities then it is sure to be an absolute brag-fest and laugh inducing read for all who will forever revel in the reminiscing on the many deaths and reincarnations of Scottish Footballs most scandalously assisted football clubs, perhaps it may even document the joyous moment that even their sheer defiance wasn’t enough to breathe new life into the most sinister networks in Scottish society and to the last stand of bigotry and sectarian hatred on the slopes of Govans land that time forgot.

I hope the second installment, the second serialisation and the second charitable fundraising memoirs of our gleeful and historically un-broken support are far wider supported than the last effort for which James had worked so tirelessly to pull together…lets once again enjoy our moments of fun and to feel free to re-visit them all in good time.

It’s such a privilege to have both a past and a future to embrace, let us never let them forget who has both.

Karma has been kind to our support these past few years, lets regularly recollect upon the only source for which our views are truly reflected.

Hail Hail

    I am not completely sure I follow your article. If it is written simply “in praise of” James, then may I express my full support. If it has some other purpose, you need to clarify it in “black and white”, please. At my age, the mind needs to be lured into understanding. Simplicity can be a minefield that grey hairs can very easily trigger uncontrollable explosions of feeble-mindedness :>)).
    As for James, he ranks with the many courageous and wisend “internet bampots” without whom a whole world of corruption and lies would go unchallenged. I am a relatively recent visitor to The Celtic Network and, if I have any regret, it is that I took so long to stumble upon it. The layout of the site, the product provided and the quality of writing puts it in the top tier of this relatively new media forum. It is an outstandingly informative and entertaining blog and I really do hope I appreciate James’ contribution to its quality and success.
    All of us who lack either the gifts or the courage to challenge the main media outlets; to undertake the laborious research and to spend excessive time writing articles must never short-change those who do our dirty work. If Scottish football, in fact Scottish society in general, is ever cleansed of the diseases that currently ravage it, much of the treatment will have come from the “bampots”. All of them, James very much included, have my gratitude, my admiration but above all, my unqualified support.

    1. Apologies! I should have written “minefield in which grey hairs”. You now know why I leave the proper work to James and co. :>))

    2. Oh no…now we are both confused.

      I will try succinctly to clear up the purpose of this article, so here goes;

      I was a reader of The Celtic Network not so many moons ago, not to say that I am not still one now of course, though nowadays having been asked by James to contribute to its success I am more acutely aware of the level of hard-work that goes into running the site, something that James does almost single handed.

      Rather than use that as a reason not to expand upon his dedication to purely maintain the site, he often blogs himself, edits others work, experiments on new social media platforms, campaigns for charity and attempts to gather support for the sale of an annual charitable fundraising book.

      Sadly all too often his hard-work has went under-estimated and under-supported, that is not a criticism, merely an observation as to how much more recognition and financial support his efforts deserve.

      I will not speak too much over James personal situation but suffice to say he has plenty of other commitments and other personal trials yet he selflessly and enthusiastically throws himself into providing the Celtic faithful with perhaps the finest fans run Celtic based resource.

      If, at all, my article had a dual purpose it was to in advance of James planned second installment of a TCN annual book launch, provide it with a small plug and to raise awareness to the support that both James and our charities so well deserve in light of such a concepts necessary sense of dutiful and time-consuming effort.

      James deserves some recognition and some assistance, for all that we to a man, woman or a child, enjoy reading the site, none of our ‘views’ can translate to measure up favourably against the tireless, committed work ethic of Messr Cameron.

      I hope that this explanation has cleared up any misunderstanding and relieved your grey shaded minefield of further explosions of any kind.

        The smoke is slowly clearing though the shrapnel still peppers my somewhat bemused brain. I think I get the drift and will look at how I can help to counteract the drain on resources. As you might gather from my name, I am not in receipt of EBTs nor am I in the secure and privileged position of having Green shares. That will not prevent me, however, studying form and trying my damnedest to place some money on the table. It sounds a really good bet to me. My first thoughts regarding your article were along these lines but I wanted to be sure without coming out with it all “black and white” like :>)). I will be in touch with James in the near future.

        1. I love your style my pensioner friend, very witty…maybe you could reconsider whether your articulate ways could provide an article or three, even if purely opinionated pieces without the need for extensive research.

          I just happen to know that James, takes nothing from the site financially, he runs it not for profit nor for a salary…he would however love to be able to boost its charitable contributions and at times has felt a little deflated that given its thousands of readers…less than 10 full price copies of the ebook for example were sold last time out.

          To put so much effort in and to recieve such a poor response certainly was a body blow, he picked himself up and started all over again.

          Ever the realist, he held no grudges and wants to improve the sales figures this time out.

          There is also a method of making a small contribution, nae a donation, via links on the site though neither myself, nor I’m sure James I’m sure, would wish to be considered as forcing peoples arms up their backs.

          I just hope people support his projects, such as the annual book launch, to whichever degree they feel comfortable and if not financially, perhaps through feedback, let him know their opinions on his endeavours. I’d be gutted for him and for the charities if this years book sales were so disappointingly low.

          I certainly don’t want to be considered as extracting money from anybodies pocket…this ain’t SEVCO after all.

          I just hope that James efforts, imaginative as they are, do not fall upon deaf or worse still uncaring ears…the bhoys a good un’ and his ethos in making improvements to the site and in charitable contributions, are in keeping with the ethos of our great club.

          The article is first and foremost to raise awareness of James dedicated and considerate approach to permitting us fans with a voice of reason and of trustworthy-ness…secondly it’s a plug for a book that he would deeply love to be a successful annual event.

          Don’t go spending your entire winter fuel alllowance on TCN shares however, that is most certainly not this articles remit, nor Mr Camerons desire.

          It’s vitally important that the site is both enjoyable and well utilised, money is secondary to the sense of growth in this resources importance to its followers.

          Thanks PB

            I never doubted for a minute that there was any intention of arm-twisting or canvassing. I am looking at the situation from the point of view of the avid fan who dreads either the quality of such an excellent product depreciating or its continuance being under threat. As for my donation, it would be in support of what I consider a very worthy cause and worth the sacrifice of the odd wee bottle of cough mixture. It will certainly not eat into my log supply. If James or yourself wish to consider all or part of it for charitable purposes, then fine but I already make provision for this through other methods. I would definitely wish to purchase, donate or contribute to the book and will make that my priority in the next few days. I take it there is a link on the site. As for me writing something, well you can let me know when you are sufficiently anaesthetised to cope with literary drivel of my standard. Many good men have sacrificed their sanity for it in the past and who am I to stop you joining them. I offer all of you my best wishes and will give full even if not adequate consideration to your invitation especially as there could be some very interesting “blue drivel” on the horizon. Meantime, I will get the finances seen to and sorted with the accountant. She wears floral dresses with mainly poison ivy on them. I have avoided taking a bite for about fifty years now and tread extremely carefully when around her. Mind you, she has always supported me when doing good things and I am certain your work is in that category. Keep up the good work!
