    Regardless of distinguishing between old and new club, I can’t see why any Celt would want to attach us to either of them in any way.

  2. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    Its just as easy to tell the truth…like Tommy Boyd does.


    Well done Tommy…If only we had more like you.




  3. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family on

    By accepting the gig Lenny allows them to put him in the position and therefore accepts the coinage



    He has suffered more than most and for that reason I am disappointed in him


    He can and will get a gig on BBC /ITV for euros so that adds to my disappointment


    But I’ve never walked in his shoes so can’t really know what he is thinking



    Tommy Boyd is the man they should look up to

    A quick heads up BBC Alba 11pm Easter Rising programme focusing on James Connolly, recording set as my cot is calling……



    My mind will never change and I don’t care what his views are on things that matter very little



    Neil Lennon – Celtic legend in this household



    Sleep well fellow Celtic fans

    I just don’t think it really matters to him. That doesn’t mean for a second I agree with him but I’m trying to understand why he does it.



    Boyd and Fallon and Gallacher wouldn’t dream of saying it but they pay to watch Celtic out of their own pockets. Maybe that’s the difference.

    Cheers mate , hope things are good with you .


    Thought it might be of interest to some .


    No surprise with the decisions going against Lurgan Celtic

  7. Wits


    I’m certainly not surprised about their attempt to reinvent themselves, indeed I would be more surprised if they hadn’t. There’s money in them there hills you know. What I am surprised at is those,who not only buy into it, but indeed propagate it.

    You are such an old tease! :)



    I have my doubts (mea culpa) but I hope you are proven right!

  10. Programme on bbc2 at 10pm



    Stories of some cumann na mBan volunteers from Tyrone and Belfast from the 1916 era.



    Should be worth a watch.

    ‘Foul – The Alternative Football Paper’.










    Fascinating article, I had heard some of the story but never realised just how bad it was. Despite all that, it seems that in some ways little has changed in the Scottish media.

    Hope things are as good as they can be, reading back the other day hit a wee note with me, my own mother passed in March 2008 and my only child was born in the September, thankfully my mum knew the wee blade was on her way, the only grandchild she never met and she even met a few of the great grandkids, anyway my daughter talks about her more than the rest put together…. They might not be here but I do believe they are never far away…. Hope you don’t mind me putting my own wee experience in there

    All the SMSM marked their demise in some way, shape or form but then when it became obvious that the follow, followers wouldn’t follow, follow a new club an accompanying narrative had to be invented. Our collective failure to continually remind them that they are a new club has allowed their narrative to become the dominant one. Somewhat akin to the “correct “version ofhistory being written by the “winners”.


    I’m just of the opinion that if we are going to continue to act like carpets then we should also expect to be walked on.


    So you’re the same club…when did you pay off your debts then?


    It just disappoints me that it is those who should know better that are the ones who tend to be the most vociferous in propagating the lie,for whatever reasons.

    JUDE2005 IS NEIL LENNON \O/ on 3RD APRIL 2016 -re Madden, if you phoned up the clowns on Snyde-Shortbread,and asked (yet again),how an Oldco/Newco Season Ticket holder can honestly referee Celtic games,you would be paranoid….. HH allegedly…

  15. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Fourgreenfields, yesterday’s win against that shower has certainly cheered me up.



    A team should never tire of beating



    Neilsen o’s turning into jolly Jim Jeffries the second.



    He’s bleating on about red card inequality yesterday.. I agree with him, their left back should have walked sooner and Prince Bauben also for hitting Leigh twice in the Stramash after Tom Rogic was clattered.



    I would have loved it if you had done a bit for the cqn magazine about you and your son’s trip to the Dortmund Bayern.game last year.it would have been good to see what your experience was like in relation to going to a game here.

  16. Gerryfaethebrig on




    Same club pay your bills……..



    Nail on the head, but I think they are aiming for the tell a lie often enough…..am content knowing they are a different excrement, and the flies, well, flies do as flies do

    Not confident enough to produce something for the magazine mate , I have deleted more post than I have sbmitted to CQN .

  18. Gearoid



    I’d pretty much agree with all of that. His comments disappoint me hugely but I’m prepared to cut him some slack for what he went through whilst a player and manager at Celtic.

  19. Gerryfaethebrig on




    I wish I had your restraint …… My mrs says easy way out “stop logging on”



    I was meant to be going to my kip but the eyes are not for closing, I suppose I need to make the most of no work the morra

  20. A couple of times I took the very wee guy to Celtic games against Horrible Hertz.



    I made the mistake of getting Family section tickets.



    That Scum were singing totally offensive songs but when 1 parent started giving it back the Police were all over him – Before the ridiculous act as well.



    The Family section should be so far away from the Haters, I have no idea if it is now?

  21. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Fourgreenfields, lol.



    I was green with envy( what other colour could I be) when.you posted that trip wad your son’s eighteenth birthday present. He should be thanking you forever. What a great gift.

  22. Gftb


    Exactly right. Tell them at every opportunity …..new club.






    Hope you (pl) enjoyed the pilgrimage. Went in 1996. Brilliant.




    Keep the faith folks.


    Up the hoooops and here’s to our unbroken history.

  23. HT


    It’s because of what he went through that I expected better of him.


    HH fhriend

  24. Gerryfaethebrig on

    Not sure who posted on Friday night about Gogglebox and the new Scottish family the dad had some daft Bridgeton loyal cup……… Well it’s now shadowed out on the repeat, hilarious, although should maybe question why I am watching it again, maybe had wee shandy or two on Friday

  25. Dallas



    Just for the purpose of embarrassing FGF, he’s one of the most self effacing guys I’ve ever met. He’s all you’d want in a man and a Tim.



    Ps I’ll correct his piece should he ever write it :-)

  26. Gearoid



    Going tomorrow G. Had a meal in a big square earlier and sat there imagining what it looked like in ’67.




  27. Good evening CQN



    Looking for 2 tickets for Tuesday night at Dens. Didn’t think I could go, however last minute change in family plans allows me the chance to attend, but need tickets ;)



    Any help much appreciated.

    Be a real shame if Thompson got a letter from the taxman. Such a likeable guy……

  29. Whitedoghunch



    I see you have links to Falling Masonry.


    .it would be worth reading Sheriff Irvine Smiths own book.chapter 6,covers the case brought against rfc which he adjudicated.Those who sought to shine a llight on culpability were also denied access to the fund set up to help the bereaved.
