CQN Vanessa Riddle Fundraiser


I’m enjoying the chat as much as anyone these days but I know you all remember what were really about as a club.  We have an update on the CQN Vanessa Riddle pop quiz fundraiser which will be held at Jury’s hotel, Glasgow on the evening of Saturday February 11.

The great news is that Frank O’Hagan has agreed to come along and do a set to close the quiz off. Frank’s third CD – Green Light to Freedom – will be mixed and mastered in the studio over the next month. Frank is also doing a concert with his band in the Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross on Saturday 18th February. Details are on Frank’s website web. Frank is a top class musician is a terrific live performer. He is also a lovely guy, so we’re just absolutely over the moon to have Frank along. Our good friends at Carling are donating some prizes too, which is also excellent news.

We have some spaces left so if you want to come along, visit Taggsybhoy’s music quiz homepage and contact him with your team name and numbers (max of 6 to a  team). He will let you know if you are successful. It is first come, first served. Vanessa Riddle Appeal

I’m off to contemplate the false value of cheap laptop hard disks. One day lost and counting, damn you HP!

  1. CultsBhoy loves being 1st on




    Prrhas not a very morcombe and wise analogy but laurel and hardly a crime!

  2. the best joke about SPL strike forces has to be rangers current top scorer own goal4 of which at least two were from their lanarkshire cousins in ML1

  3. havent read back so dont know if others have posted this but today’s Herald Article by Michael Grant is getting closer to the truth but not quite there yet






    some of the comments by non celtic or rangers fans are rather interesting at yet again seeing us as one side of the coin. Last time I looked we were healthy as a club

  4. Now now paul…I have run my business on macs for over 20 years now….go on you know you want to!…



    I bet there is a wee secret ipad tucked away in the garden shed…no?






    Abbott and Costello were mighty fine comedians but the Three Stooges were so much better but unless we play 4-3-3 cant see them appearing soon!

  5. Neil canamalar Lennon hunskelper extrordinaire on



    personally I thought abbot and costello were rubbish, thats why.

  6. aye and still waiting for your snail mail :-) by the way new your sons were in Oz didnt realise your bhoys were in brisbane which is also the home of my youngest brother

  7. re post



    I prefer the recent analogy of Mr Stein’s part in the downfall of Rangers being compared to Ronald Regan’s role in the end of another evil empire namely the Soviet Union.


    Mr Stein’s football success – 2 European cup finals with 1 victory hurt WATP so much that they, under Sir Minty, embarked on an unsustainable spending spree in an attempt to emulate the Lisbon Lions. Somewhat akin to the Soviet Union’s attempts to keep pace with the US in the arms race – it bankrupted them.


    Big Jocks shadow is something Der Hun will never escape from. Big Jock Knew – yes he knew Rangers would never be able to match our success – EVER.

    Thanks for the after thought back there on ye article of ole.



    Or was it an after burner full of boosting Timmy energy?



    Good luck with your interviews buddy.



    Ive always wanted to try out Trainspotting character SPUDs interview technique. You fancy giving it a go and letting us know how you get on. ;-)




  9. Medtim, a club in administration this season will not be banned from Europe for three seasons. This would only apply to a new club.



    A club is deducted 10 points for each season it remains in administration.



    hoopeddreams, that’s right, what’s on second.



    unew mike, that is the beauty of wonder.



    CultsBhoy :-)



    johann murdoch, no iPad, no iPhone, I’m a Windows Phone, Windows 7 guy.

  10. unew mike,



    My money is on the Giants – I think they have the defence to stop Brady and co and an offence that will score enough points. It will be close though and our man Lawrence Tynes could have a big role to play

  11. if we are talking about funny comedians from black and white TV then the marx brothers beat Laurel and hardy for me…chico and groucho marx were hilariious

  12. Thats my weekend taken care of!



    Reading CQN and making hard copies from my ‘laptop’ Hard drives.



    Tip for anyone with loads of photo’s on their Hard drives, burn them to a CD / DVD, if they are of family events, make a copy and pass them around.


    You now have off-site storage of your precious photos!



    No fire / theft or computer breakdown can take them away from you.

    ‘Moving on with purpose but without making any sudden movements.’




    Chuckling away to myself. You’re on fine form.

    Got to be te three stooges, “who said we were riviters” still brings tears


    Then WC Fields, “never give a sucker an even break”, very apt for the current situation over at the begging bowl :o)

    Gordon, see when you were writing that, did you say ‘deeeefence’ in your head? I think we should be told.

  16. unew mike.



    I’m glad you have surfaced again.I’m sure Paul will give you my new e-mail addy,I had to get rid of my last one as someone appropriated my old mail address and sent out hundreds of mails to purchase Viagra,That gave me a bit of Hassle.



    Have you started a supporters club in the land of the rising sun?,are you there for good or are you on an extended holiday,send me a mail and I’ll get back in touch with you again.


    My problem when I got rid of my last mail addy,I inadvertently deleted all my mail addies as well.I haven’t your address as it went with all the others.




  17. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    On BBC2 last night, fight between a tiger and a leopard.



    I won’t reveal the final score but the programme is well worth seeing.

  18. Auld Neil Lennon heid on

    Nice to see questions mounting on the role of the SFA on rtcblog



    Rangers have not just misused a trust facility, they have undermined any trust in them that is an essential for any sport and the SFA and SPL by their ongoing silence are losing any vestiges of trust the footballing public have in them.


    There can be no Rangers Newco until the SFA/SPL become newcos themselves, by that I mean a full review into how this happened on their watch including licencing and discipline matters.



    When the detective work is over restoring trust in our game will be essential and the football trusts at all clubs should be demanding access to SFA processes as representing major stakeholders in our game. A proper transparent system that involves all club trusts and not lip service to an ideal.

    I have problems with that analogy.



    Jock Stein knew what he was doing.



    Ronnie thought he was in a film and his Star Wars strategy would be just like the film. His legacy was the very deregulation and work rights restrictions that led to our recent global Economic crash, Davie Murray’s transformation into Gordon McGecko, and the rise of asset strippers like Whyte, Ellis & Co.

    If you get the opporchancity to listen back to the last 20 mins or so of Radio Clydes Superscoreboard Football Phone In show from 30/01/2012 there are a few points made regarding Hun liquidation/receivership/administration.



    My guess is the points are made by people who do not fully understand the implications of the outcome of the Huns experiencing one of the aforementioned liquidation events even though one of those people FORCEULLY announces he has been briefed by the SPL on how they would deal with a Newco in the event of Oldco being liquidated. Eh! Hugh.



    It is Graeme Spears comments who peaked my interest when he states Rangers will lose their right to their share if they experience Administration. This is the first time I have heard or for that matter read anywhere of such a scenario occurring. I believe GS is struggling to understand the briefings given by the SPL to our Sports Journo’s.



    Once again. On a personal level I would like to take this opportunity to thank Hugh for his briefing comment.




  21. After reading the Herald article about the Russian transfer window still being open, pretty clearly written to try and unsettle Celtic (supporters at least). I am sure there must be at least one Russian club looking for a goalie and I know a selling club not too far away that would not be hard to do business with for any “reasonable” offer. Is it too much to hope that McGregor leaves the Govan Shityard as well?

  22. Sorry folks was busy for a bit!



    Rodow1 congrats on getting all 10 first

    9 Mick McCarthy


    10 Paulo di Canio



    When you think Roy Keane and Strachan could soon be back managing, Martin Hayes was only just sacked by Dover (non-League), Aitken, Grant, Black, Gorman have or are No.2’s, Owen Coyle is a massive Celt and Fergie was moulded by Big Jock, thats some list! Forget the Ajax or Barca way it’s the Celtic way that’s inspiring football on these isles!

    “someone appropriated my old mail address and sent out hundreds of mails to purchase Viagra,That gave me a bit of Hassle.”



    Hassle can be one of the side effects of too much Viagra.

    Can we have an article on what happens to Rangers assets in the event of an administration and following this liquidation (ignoring if the club will have a place in the league structure for now)?



    How are they valued and split up?



    I’d really like to know if Craig Whyte is still the preferred creditor (he claims he is!) and what this means if they go bust – and importantly is he trying to make them go bust? Would this be illegal?



    So many uncertainties. The way I’ve read it is he is the preferred creditor and has manipulated it so Rangers owe him significant amounts of debt without actually putting money in, if the club goes bust all (or most) the assets go to him and the debts are wiped. Is that the case?

  25. Gordon_J



    At least you’re able to keep them separate, but I think it’s a dangerous road. One minute, you get the emphasis on the right syllable, and the next you’ll be saying that you’re rooting for the Celtics’ deeeefence to get in their opponents’ faces from the get-go.



    Then you’ll have to give yourself a bit of a talking to.



    I’m just trying to save you hassle further down the line.

  26. Looking at the SPL U-19 Top scorers list I see that an Aberdeen player with the same name as Elvis Costello is joint 3rd. Love to see that name on a Celtic shirt.



    It would be better than the joint 4th top scorer, Hearts’ Billy King :-)

    I see these briefings for the meeja as part of the bigger problem.


    They appear to be confidential strategy than meeja briefings.


    When the meeja trn up and they agree that they will not publish any of the information, and we only hear about them when hacks let slip on radio shows.


    Same old same old.

  28. Celtic_First,



    Two countries separated by a common language.



    It makes watching “soccer” with US commentators really interesting. There are so many turnovers and the ball is always going over the side line or the end line.



    Mind you, my US friends get really confused when I talk about shys and stoat ups.
