I’m having a preoccupied week, so Hot Smoked and vfr800a8 have kindly stepped forward with today’s article, and an initiative, which will hopefully establish a direct route for the blog to ask questions of the club.
This is from Hot Smoked and vfr800a8, please support the initiative:
In 2004 Paul67 decided that something was needed to combat the distorted MSSM reporting on all things Celtic. The result was the birth of CQN.
Like all good ideas, CQN has developed and now provides an outlet for discussions ranging from Independence to toasted cheese. Nevertheless, the raison d`etre of the site remains the same i.e. as provision of a vehicle to inform on all matters Celtic from a less prejudiced view than that of the MSSM. However, there are still issues that arise that could do with some direct input and clarification from Celtic.
With that in mind, we contacted John Paul Taylor, the Celtic Supporters Liaison Officer and after discussion he has agreed to host a weekly/fortnightly Q & A session at a set time on CQN. He is also willing to do a Blog Q&A session on a regular basis if required; the frequency of the “regular basis” is yet to be defined so we will approach this flexibly.
If there are urgent issues that arise then we can approach John Paul to see if there is a possibility of a response prior to the scheduled meetings, though it is expected that this will only take place in exceptional circumstances.
Initially, to ensure that all areas of any given topic are covered, we would propose we tackle different sets of questions on separate weeks; for example:
Week 1 – Res 12 and “same club” issues
Week 2 – The stadium, fan experience and safety at other stadiums
Week 3 – Ticket allocation issues
Week 4 – Offensive Behaviour at Football Act
The questions and issues will be collated centrally on CQN and grouped to reflect the various views on the Blog. We feel that this approach is unique to CQN and don’t think any other fan site has this opportunity so we must use it wisely.
It is envisaged that if those using CQN see this as being useful and beneficial that we start the meetings on Friday 18th November 2016, so we would finalise questions and issues by mid-day on tomorrow, 17th November to get them to John Paul. Please send questions you would like to raise to firstname.lastname@example.org and Liason in the subject line
So, let us know what you think and if the feedback is positive, we can get this off the ground! If there are issues or questions you have on Res 12 and the same club myth please let us know by noon tomorrow by emailing email@example.com
Thanks, Hot Smoked and vfr800a8.
