    Ma da was a Bute Tim. Kilchattan Bay.










    He might have known a mate of mine , Rab Lambert. Belltrees Hotel , Rothesay.





    DD -I’m a Brandane myself, so probably know your Da – we Tims were vastly outnumbered but that made it all the sweeter during Mr Stein’s reign. (P.S. I thought from previous posts your paternal roots were Polish – sorry if I got that wrong)


    MacJay – Often had to drink in Rab’s boozer when trying to hide from detractors.

  3. Wee tale – not fitba related, sorry – from yesterday.


    My 4 year old grandson (who invented my moniker for me) was asked to be the inn keeper in his nursery’s nativity play. His only line: “There’s no room in the inn”


    Act 1, Scene 1


    Joseph – Is there any room in the inn?


    Grandson: Of course there is


    Teacher: No, you have to say there’s no room


    Grandson: Of course there is


    Teacher: You have to say NO..There’s no room in the inn


    Grandson: Of course there is, we can make room.



    Didn’t get the part…So proud of him, the little Scaniel!

  4. Morning from a dull West London, good night last night with some good Celts in the West London CSC despite the poor quality of the images from Celtic Park. Much appreciated all the same. I did have to endure the comedy gold of the highlights from their recent match v the Dortmund London Supporters club, which was blessed with a last minute equaliser from my own daft lhad Surprisingly the Germans won on penalties.


    Thanks for your company bhoys. HH

  5. Mackay, Scaniel and DD



    Still a good going club on BUTE based in the Galatea.


    I know Rab Lambert well, if it’s the Dentist your talking about.




  6. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family on



    I know Rab well also, my wife was his dental nurse for 17 year


    Saw him in GWR in summer and had a chat


    Stayed in his hotel me over in Bute

  7. CQN poster (s) of the year nominations:



    Res 12 guys for diligent work despite facing hurdle after hurdle?



    CRC / Jobo Baldie for unselfish and relentless charity work?



    Joint winners eh?

  8. Twisty



    I’d go with that. Take a bow lads.






    Many thanks again for the tickets for last night sir.

  9. Not sure about these words of the day but do you know where to weigh a pie?



    Apparently it’s “Somewhere over the rainbow…….”

  10. Morning Peeps.



    I’ve been a little out of touch on all things Res 12 of late but would appear based on chatter, which I’m only now catching up on that our board have somehow caused a stir by inaction or otherwise.



    Can some kind soul point me in the right direction or summarise as to what has gone one.

    Had a few there myself.


    And enjoyed his hospitality in the Belltrees.


    Detractors , eh ?


    Intriguing. :-)





    E-Tims did a pretty good summary of events to date,but it seems they’re account has been suspended!



    Best bet might be Monday’s article on here,where it was widely discussed.

  13. macjay1 for Neil Lennon on





    That`s the guy.


    Retired I would imagine.

  14. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family on

    Surely Fleagle deserves a mention for keeping you tipsters on your game

    Absolute cracker.


    ” We can make room ”


    A credit to his parents.



    A man for others.



  16. Good to see Celtic pretty much control another game the first 5 mins apart when Thistle might with a little more precision scored one of their couple of chances in the game.



    Good to see a team come and have a wee bit of a go, open the space and make a game of it increasing the entertainment level a notch from the chess matches we have played against Hamilton and Dundee more recently although I did enjoy both those encounters as well.



    Once again we were not overly prolific in attack but that’ll resume again soon, hoopfully Ne’rdy assuming that bird Barbara does not take a dislike to the Eave’s of Ipox this coming weekend. Great goal from Sinclair into the bargain.



    Thoroughly enjoyed it from the comfort of my bed free on TV.

    Good shout! Streling work they do!




    HAMILTONTIM on 21st December 2016 8:54 am


    Glad you enjoyed it! I saw ACGR in Coias so him and DD will be lined up for the next time I miss it. Did you give the tickets to the Ginger?





  18. Macjay and Blantyre Tim



    Yes that is Rab – Retired and doing fine. We meet in the Chip or the Taverna – depending on where we are that day! The great West End or BUTE dilemma.




  19. macjay1 for Neil Lennon on





    We used to drink in the beer bar together.


    Tell him regards from the fenian from Scotstoun .

  20. SCANIEL on 21ST DECEMBER 2016 8:09 AM



    But did he offer them en- suite with full English and a lovely view of Galilee?

  21. Enjoyed the game last night,well done to Thistle for not parking the bus,the No 11 and the big guy up front was a handful,i will bet them away to Ross County on Saturday.I thought Henderson showed up well,and Gamboa was decent too.A few guys getting a rest for different reasons just now,hoping to peak again at Poundland next week.Given some of the moans i heard coming out the ground,it’s obvious most haven’t been regulars at CP for the last few seasons.

    Rab was/is the dentist……it was his brother Arthur who ran the Belltrees. Think Rab got involved in the hotel again when it needed some attention. (insert euphemism here)


    I was born above the Galatea. At that time (50’s) most Celtic supporters made their way there after the boat landed. Jimmy Bain and Snowy MacArthur were my first (bad) influences when it came to supporting the bhoys. I vividly remember the day I realised I was a Celtic supporter – it involves Jimmy, Snowy and the Galatea.


    I was standing at the top of the Watergate, just across from our home in Castle Street waiting for the fans to disembark and make their way to the pub after a certain game at Hampden in the Sun. What was the score, Mister, I asked Jimmy/Snowy/Whoever (No radios,transistors in those days). 7-1 came the raucous reply. Couldn’t be anything else but a Celtic fan after that.

  24. VFR800 is now a Monster 821 on

    I caught the second half on Celtic TV last night (the picture was spot on in Dennistoun).



    Wasn’t the best game I’ve seen this season, but we did well against a determined Thistle side who caused us a few problems. However, consider the following to line-ups; the first was the team from last night and the second is what most would consider our strongest 11:



    Team 1


    Gordon; Gamboa, Lustig, Simunovic, Miller; Brown, McGregor, Henderson, Roberts, Sinclair; Dembele



    Team 2


    Gordon, Lustig, Sviatchenko, Simunovic, Tierney: Brown, Armstrong; Forrest, Rogic, Sinclair; Dembele.



    There may be debate around Dembele or Griffiths but Team 1 has only 6 of the strongest line-up of Team 2 in it. Saturday’s team against Dundee only had 5 of the strongest line-up: Gordon, Sviatchenko, Simunovic, Armstrong and Rogic.



    So with only 5 or 6 of our regular starters we should expect some disjointed play but we are still picking up wins and points. We have also been able to assess Gamboa, Miller, McGregor, Henderson and Christie as starters in these games and shows our strength in depth; with half a starting 11 out, we still pick up 6 points!



    We should be at full strength (minus KT) for Ross County and Sevco so another 6 points beckon! Then we have a break. 44 games between July and December is an average of more than 8 games a month so the players will need a break.



    Won 16 of 17 games in the league with a +34 goal difference; first cup won; and progress in Europe. How can anyone be disgruntled (on the playing side)?









    I’m sure FLEAGLE will gladly accept a bronze in deference to the other fine fellas.

    Rab told me about Arthur.


    Didn`t use a euphemism.





    If you can , pass on my message.


    He may remember me.

  27. Just for reference when some of our neighbour’s suggest


    we are on poor run up to Ipox



    Before LC semi 5 domestic games prior to that



    ICT 2 -2


    Alloa 2-0 two goals in last 8 minutes


    Killie 6-1


    Dundee 1-0


    Murderwell 2-0 Penalty in last minute



    Apart for Killie


    Weren’t exactly firing on all cylinders
