Celtic fans to blame, apparently


I see Celtic fans are being blamed for rumours of Newco’s administration by their former manager, Ally McCoist. He could argue that. Alternatively, you could suggest that a business unable to secure bank borrowing, dependent on funding from directors, who will soon be forced to find £11m to make a share offer, has created more than enough financial uncertainty without Celtic fans’ assistance.

McCoist suggested “even the biggest Celtic fans in the country” do not want to see Newco go into administration. Not so sure you are right there, Ally. Personally, I would find it a funny, but it is not going to change anything. It would not lead to relegation and will not change the title race in any way.

The most significant outcome of administration could be forcing control from Dave King. Which would be a source of enormous regret.

You hang in there, Dave.

The CQN Podcast: A Celtic State of Mind (EP28) with former Celtic director Tom Grant

Paul John Dykes and Kevin Graham are joined by Celtic’s ex-director, Tom Grant, who offers a fascinating insight into the running of the club in the 1980s and 1990s.

Tom Grant explains exactly why Celtic refused to complete the Mo Johnston transfer in 1989, and lifts the lid on audacious efforts by Billy McNeill to recruit Peter Beardsley and Steve Bruce.

Tom Grant also dissects his relationship with Fergus McCann, and the impact of the ‘Celts For Change’ movement in overturning the ‘family dynasty’ board in 1994.

    It appears only ONE poster took any notice of the 4 horses that I put up yesterday ( 3 winners), so obviously most are not bothered so this is the last time I post Hendersons horses….Pity.


    Thanks to that poster who took the time and trouble to post back after 3 had won.



    Henderson has some races at Kempton where he has TWO Runners in certain races.

    Only kidding,bud. Just because a post doesn’t get a response doesn’t mean it’s not appreciated. I’ve managed to convince myself of that over the years(!)



    Good luck with today’s selections. I didn’t have a bet yesterday,and missed WITS WINNER as I was resting up for nightshift. Hopefully I’ll make up for that today…





    My genuine apologies for going over the top in “that” response to you a few weeks back. I’m afraid you won’t be able to buy me a pint for a few months,at least. So,I’ll buy you one then-if you promise not to throw it over me!

    Not all posters are gamblers so don’t feel let down by a lack of replies to your horsey posts.



    Perhaps some of the posters who backed your tips have not been back on since.



    Perhaps some of the gamblers on here didn’t back your tips.



    Loads of reasons not to let it get to you.



    I’m guessing the majority of my posts don’t get a reply, but that disny bother me!



    The real pleasure is being part of this brilliant blog, even in a very small way.



    And meeting the bloggers at the the HOOTS is just the best!



    Keep posting big mhan and I hope your horses win!

    Only men were allowed inside Tennents Bar until 1971, when a group of female protesters stormed the bar and were finally given the right to be served there.

    I’ve been getting spammed in DM by this guy called Buster. He keeps sending me videos of songs by the ’70’s band The Sweet. Does anyone know a way, there’s got to be a way, to block Buster

    There are 3 types on the go –






    A strain of Influenza B .



    H3NT mutates quickly and easily – vaccination isn’t that effective against a mutated version of the original .



    I got my flu vac in early November — quack who did it told me that it was only likely to be @ 30% against mutated H3NT. He also gave me this year’s booster version of the viral pneumonia vac – many of the poor souls who cross the Med are louping with Viral pneumonia caught in the hell hole holding camps in Libya.



    Today’s choon —

    – many of the poor souls who cross the Med are louping with Viral pneumonia caught in the hell hole holding camps in Libya.



    Are you trying to temp Sydney Tim back on with that statement? ;-))



    I will wish you Happy Birthday mate….even though you and EVERYONE else DIDN’T wish me Happy Birthday last month .


    As for Henderson horses etc, No I won’t be posting about them again…as I won’t be responsible for folk losing money, and one minor beef about yesterdays horses that I put up, if another poster had put up 4 horse in ONE day, and THREE of them win, and I had followed that post…I would be back on here asap saying “Thank You” ?


    What made it even worse was for me to read WITS ONE horse ( which won of course, and well done to WITS for that)…and SEVERAL folk on here posted their thanks to him…fair enough…but am I missing something here, one poster gives ONE Winner and I give THREE ?…and I’m really just wasting my time methinks with the horses so no more.


    I aint in a HUFF…..I’m just having a feckin EPISODE….Awright !





  20. On the flu jabs it might be wise to do a bit of research . I’m seeing loads of stuff saying not only are they ineffective but that they actually weaken the immune system -so your more likely to get flu!

  21. I NEED PLENTY of BEER….I NEED to get out this hoose and talk to other human beings….nae feckin Huns mind !


    I spent yesterday watching Hendersons horses….and playing with my brand new hoover which got delivered yesterday. It has brought up my new carpets really well and the place is beginning to take shape with new blinds from last week, a reconditioned “new” computer, a new telly, new flooring for bathroom and looby……BUT…I still NEED to get out for BEERS ”


    Maybe around 4.pm…as I am still not to great health wise…just fed up with certain women and having NO BEER for over a week now !


    Rant well and truly over !
