CQN TV Saints and Sinners


Our third and final video with Scotland’s top model and TV presenter, Nicole with social media masters’ graduate, Suzie is now available.  We finish with a bit of fun, looking at the Saints and Sinners of Scottish football, including some of the main characters involved in football’s current woes, as well as one or two main characters from the champions.

12 members of the Tyneside No 1 Celtic Supporters Club will walk the West Highland Way from 31th July ro raise vital funds for MacMillan Cancer Support, HCPT and Celtic Charity Fund. The guys from Tyneside are among the most regular contributors to good causes in the name of Celtic and deserve your support. Please visit their Everyclick page.

I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Evening bhoys, hot and hun free, just the way it should be.



    Sad news about Joe McBride








    So no matter what the clubs say it’s div1 for the huns.


    Bring it on I say, I can see a major revolt if that happens.

  2. I'm Neil Lennon (tamrabam) on

    its ridiculous that the whole situation boils down to a handful of SFL clubs to resolve


    doncaster and regan have no future, dead men walking and take campbell with you

  3. Stringer Bell on

    Is anyone aware if there is a best person to contact at cp to organise taking a disabled person to a game?



    Thinking about the inter game specifically.



    Thanks in advance, have to log off so will pick up any replies later.

  4. Before the vote to shoehorn Sevco into the SPL we had all sorts of threats emanating from the SPL/SFA. The clubs themselves did the right thing.



    I think this will happen again, the chairmen of all clubs are being under estimated. They won’t be bullied or badgered.


    They will know their fans may well reacte badly to their clubs if they do.


    And remember if Stenhousemuir, or any club of that size, loose 40-50 season ticket holders, this will have a huge effect on that club.

    I think we know this has been played out behind closed doors.Sevco keep protesting just put us in Div 3,SFA/SPL/SFL say no you are going in to Div 1/SPL 2.Sevco will say we will only go if there are no sanctions,with possibly only the Transfer Embargo still standing.Cue Sevco winning SFL 1/SPL 2 and hey presto debt free.You couldn’t make this up.Lawyers and Council for Arbitration in Sport, at the ready Celtic.

  7. St Valentines Day-


    Friday the thirteenth
















    Eternal Tales From The Crypt


    The tops off the Syrah


    Glass raised


    Heres to you all


    Shakespearean tragedy


    Or is it farce



  8. I imagine we will read a similar story involving a club called ‘rangers’ in years to come…



    The New York Cosmos, such as they


    are, are back. The club will play in the


    North American Soccer League, such as


    it is. The rest is merely another strange


    chapter in the storied and tortured


    history of soccer in the United States.


    On Thursday, the N.A.S.L., which is now


    a Division 2 league in North America,


    approved the entry of the Cosmos to


    the league for the 2013 season. The


    club, which has not been a bona fide


    team in more than 30 years, will play its


    matches at Hofstra University in


    Hempstead, N.Y. The back-to-the-


    future threads are inescapable because


    the latter-day Cosmos once also called


    Hofstra home, long before the team


    ended up in Giants Stadium in East


    Rutherford, N.J., playing to packed


    houses before it all came crumbling


    down after the 1984 season.


    The team stayed alive in the heart and


    mind of G. Peppe Pinton, who sold the


    rights — lock, stock and trophy case —


    to a group led by the English


    businessman Paul Kemsley. Kemsley


    relaunched the “brand” to great fanfare


    a couple of years ago, but the effort


    turned out to be little more about


    marketing and selling shirts. (In fact, the


    entire Cosmos gear inventory made by


    Umbro was dumped for pennies on the


    dollar to an off-price retailer.)


    After Kemsley departed, the club fell


    under the auspices of Sela Sports,


    which is based in Saudi Arabia. The


    “international partnership,” as it is


    described in a news release, is led by


    Seamus O’Brien, who is based in




    “We are delighted to return to our


    historic home with the N.A.S.L. and


    bring the New York Cosmos back to the


    playing field,” O’Brien said. “We are


    committed to running the franchise with


    the highest possible standards on and


    off the field, and look forward to


    putting together a competitive and


    entertaining team our fans can be proud




    It had long been thought that the


    Cosmos would gain entry to Major


    League Soccer, but those efforts have


    obviously not come to fruition, at least


    not yet. M.L.S. remains committed to


    expansion and has said it would like to


    place its 20th team in New York City,


    though prospects of that happening


    now seem less likely as the league


    struggles to find a suitable location for


    a new stadium.


    “We are extremely proud to welcome


    the New York Cosmos to the North


    American Soccer League,” N.A.S.L.


    Commissioner David Downs said in a


    news release. “As we continue to


    expand the league and help grow


    professional soccer in the United


    States, Canada and the Caribbean, the


    Cosmos brand and their strong


    ownership group are a perfect fit with


    us. The history of the Cosmos and


    soccer in the New York City area are


    intertwined. Bringing the Cosmos into


    the N.A.S.L. is a logical next step as we


    embrace the heritage of our own past


    and now reunite the Cosmos, Strikers,


    Rowdies and several markets with ties


    to the N.A.S.L.’s early days. Most


    importantly, we look forward to the


    Cosmos enhancing the quality of our


    league both on and off the field.”


    It is early and as yet there is no word


    about how the team will be


    constructed, expect that Giovanni


    Savarese, a former star for the


    MetroStars of M.L.S., will retain some


    role with the Cosmos where he was


    head of youth development. There was


    also no indication of whether the newly


    formed Cosmos will retain Eric Cantona,


    Cobi Jones or the services of Pelé.

    rumours of Fat Sally (who has been conspicous by his absence, turning up at an orange walk- is this true.


    i mean the bit about the orange walk, not the bit about him being fat

  10. blantyretim@19:49



    Struan Marshall is Jonathan Woodgate’s agent



    He also represents Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard, Stewart Downing, Aiden McGeady, Jermain Defoe and a few more heavy hitters



    He does very well for himself, as you have probably guessed looking at the above list

  11. ooooffffttttt, i hope the lawyers like.

    this really riles me…


    that guy has make millions out of the game..


    we are thinking about Joe Mc Bride tonight..


    it really does annoy me…

    Compare and contrast.

  14. the long wait is over on

    Apropos of nothing just watched the highlights of the 3-3 game at Kilmarnock on YouTube again.



    Open to correction here but of all the things said during the first half and at half time here I don’t recall a single statement about how Scotland needed a strong Celtic and Rangers.



    It was their 9 in a row , the souness and Murray years in microcosm – Celtic are pathetically poor and the mighty rangers will march on in triumph.



    Irrespective of what else occurs never let the significance of this season be forgotten. The paranoid Internet bampots and the three or more generations of their forefathers were right.



    Their “triumphs” of recent years were built on sand and the big wave has just washed in.

  15. Just caught the end of the news on 5 live there and it mentioned something about trouble tonight in Ardoyne between Republicans and Loyalists.


    Anyone know what was the problem was?

    He could retire tomorrow very comfortably if he so wished, but in his own words:



    “There is too much money to be made”



    ‘Greed is good’ was a phrase made for these guys

  18. !!Bada Bing!! on

    blantyretim-Met a guy in the Algarve around 1999,he was Woodgate’s dads best mate.Whilst at Leeds as a youngster then,he got capped for England,a clause in his contract kicked in.His basic went from £750 a week to £15,000 a week.I agree the contracts he has picked up for being a crock are unbelievable .

    real radio reporting that even if the vote tomorrow says divsion 3 the sfl will over rule this a few days later and its divsion 1 for sevco





    Neil – If they really mean “the sfl will over-rule this” they are talking nonsense. Longmuir is not that daft. Should the SFL clubs clearly vote for Div3 or nothing that will be it as far as the SFL is concerned. The idea the SFL executive panel would countermand the clubs’ decision is absurd and if it was even attempted Longmuir would not feel his feet touch the ground!



    – If they mean the SFA will over-rule this” then I have to admit I don’t know what power the SFA have to exercise this but Scottish Football fans simply wouldn’t stand for it and a campaign of non-attendance would arise. Strangely the reason for this has moved beyond RFCIA/IL & Sevco, they are now in the context of the big picture irrelevances.



    The issue now is about respect. The SFA (& possibly SPL) will be seen (are seen?) as anti-fans. What is the point of having fans at all when the clearly articulated opinion of fans organisations & the clearly articulated opinion of the clubs those fans keep alive if they is ignored. It is a fight the SFA must know could only end in disaster – for them.



    No, if the answer is Div3 for Sevco thats it and they all know it.



    The pity is all this should have followed automatically weeks ago & everybody would be in a better place right now, even Sevco.

    well i tell you one thing, if they get div 1 i will squeam and squeam and squeam

    Another facet of Joe’s play was out-jumping the rangersaswas centre half to nod the ball onto Bobby Lennox’s instep. The buzz-bomb didn’t even have to check his stride as the ball bulleted into the net.


    Big Jock thought Joe was past his best after the injury but in his first game back Joe got a hat-trick away against the Morton. Yet another in a long line of players gone too soon.


    Joe McBride was a phenomenon. Excellent players were to fill his position but Joe was sans pareil.

    Yes. Mr Regan, not looking very clever… and a club chairman as well…

  25. Another wonderful by product of the hun situation may be the end of MSM as we know it. With one or two exceptions I for one will not shed any tears.



    Maybe Minty could get some of these soon to be defunct hacks a joab ?



    Sorry , forgot they have been in his employ for many years.



    This just keeps on giving !

  26. I’m Neil Lennon (tamrabam)



    The SFL clubs could of course vote to allow Sevco into SFL1. This will still stink but not as much as an organisation (SFL Exec or SFA) deliberately overturning a clear decision by member clubs.



    So keep practicing the squeaming – just in case!

  27. O.G.Rafferty on

    A chairman of the SPL variety… wonder what the fans of his club will make of his go-between status … I’d be very surprised if they weren’t a bit annoyed…

  28. Paddy Gallagher on

    Morris returns from the doctor and tells his wife that the Doctor has told him that he has only 24 hours to live.



    Given the prognosis, Morris asks his wife for sex.



    Naturally, she agrees, so they make love.



    About 6 hours later, the husband goes to his wife and says, ‘Honey, you know I now have only 18 hours to live.



    Could we please do it one more time?’



    Of course, the wife agrees, and they do it again.



    Later, as the man gets into bed, he looks at his watch and realizes that he now has only 8 hours left.



    He touches his wife’s shoulder and asks, ‘Honey, please… just one more time before I die.’



    She says, ‘Of course, Dear,’ and they make love for the third time.



    After this session, the wife rolls over and falls asleep.



    Morris, however, worried about his impending death,tosses and turns, until he’s down to 4 more hours.



    He taps his wife, who rouses. ‘Honey, I have only 4 more hours….



    do you think we could…’



    At this point the wife sits up and says, ‘Listen Morris, enough is enough



    I have to get up in the morning… you don’t.’

    Celtic had a piece in y,days view about teams they’ve played but are no longer here third Lanark,Clydebank ect no mention of the r#ngers,although that’s what they were hinting it they didn’t see it through !!
