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!

    We know that and they know that but it could be a “well we tried everything but couldn’t save the company”.



    Plus in administration, the assets could be sold to a friendly partner for a lot less than they are worth.

    Your behaviour is akin to that of a child starved of attention (will I won’t I, referring to yourself in the 2nd person etc..). Either spill or l.eave it alone.

    In all honesty I think we are going to get a surprise, don’t have a clue as to what it will be, but nothing is going to form, wheather there is a plan, which dosen’t look like there is, or not, I get this feeling that something out of the ordinary is going to happen.



    What if yer man was to get arrested and questioned on fraud charges, where would that leave the sfa/spl ? their silence is worrying me btw, what are they hatching up, I’m sure they are covering their tracks as we speak.





    You stertin’ a fight in an empty hoose again?

    A great post that sits comfortably with the best.



    Your post along with the news the Tories NHS reforms have taken a hit below the waterline …..“The college, which represents 34,000 GPs in England, said the overhaul had to be stopped because it threatened to cause “irreparable damage” to care.”



    …….has set me up for the day.

  12. THE EXILED TIM at 09:17



    The SFA/SPL will have questions to answer after it is all over. They have been taken for a ride by Whyte, Rangers and the complicit media and should have carried out a much more thorough investigation into Whyte before allowing the takeover.

    In 1994 i was 33 and getting it really tight along with my fellow Tims in a warehouse in Bellshill off a big fat smelly orc about them winning the leagues and their spending power over us. fenian this fenian that murray this murray that.


    Some of my mates did not know what to say but i vividly remember getting him in a corner and saying “haw you ya fat smelly c@#? it wont always be like this Tioch Faidh Ar La and when it does this big fenian b@”£$!# will seek you out and remind you of what you said”.


    So allan if your still aboot keep looking over your shoulder Timmy is coming to have a word or two aboot the Celts your troubles and murrays spending.Tick Tock. I want them wiped out forever.






    Nailed it, mate.



    For every decent Hun I’ve gotten along with either through work or playing footy, all I need to do whenever there’s a mild pang of sympathy for their memory is cast my mind back to the merciless hate they showed us back then.



    That was the time of Minty’s ‘For every fiver…’, that was the time when the term ‘beggars’ was coined, aimed at us and the financial hole we were in.



    We got no sympathy, nor empathy. Every one of those Huns with typewriters at the time queued up to furnish the redtops with their latest mocking image or headline.



    I remember the hollow terror standing out in the car park one Saturday as Celts for Change carried out a protest, marshalled by smirking cops, keeping the masses more than a stone’s throw away from the stadium windows where the Kellys and Chris White could be seen intermittently glowering down. That distance seemed metaphorical at the time – the reality of the situation; no ordinary fans could set foot anywhere near the families’ hallowed halls let alone hope to force fundamental, historical change.



    I remember the grim resignation when the Kellys knocked back Fergus’s initial attempt to take over, the foreboding sense of failure, that the Huns were right: we were doomed, left with nothing but defeat and vanishing hope.



    At that time I was involved in both my business and personal life with someone who had very good connections with those calling the shots in the Bank of Scotland. This person had Tim sympathies, though no real passion, but had strong business interests with the bank. I was continually well-informed about the attitude to Celtic within those banking circles; in short, we were hamstrung wildebeest, circled by gurning hyenas. The only question left was which forelock-tugging masonic scumbag scavenger would have the honour of the kill.



    And the Huns, the CORE of the Huns, the dark sides of all my Hun acquaintances, that orc consciousness which a decade and a half later would trash a major English city through petulance and ignorance – they laughed at us; they mocked us; they wished only to trod on the graves of Celtic and all its followers.



    Their HATE was palpable. Their myopic superiority complex was fermenting with triumph and spewing an acidic bile of such venom all the ordinary, powerless Celtic fan could do was hope the wind blew in a different direction.



    Then The Man McCann, buoyed by his rebel alliance, showed the fortitude which had made his fortune on other shores. He returned once more and smashed the bitter narrow-minded perceptions of this wee society into smithereens. A man who did not know his place, and would not accept it told by others, nor that of his people.



    Was not Celtic founded by just such a man?



    So now, nearly 20 years on, the plan has not only worked for us, but has delivered the ultimate pay-off; their efforts to keep pace, misguided by a silver-spoooned egotist who knew only how to borrow against speculation and had no true knowledge of wealth creation. Everything on the never-never. They have crashed. And soon, very, very soon, will burn. In hell, natural justice and religious myth prevailing…



    So, screw the one-worlder philosophy the media lapdogs and the Huns are attempting to cack-handedly employ; they were never bred to mate, only bred to hate.


    Eschew their tawdry whataboutery – every other club in Scotland will relish the chance to finish second behind the Hoops and get a bite at the euro big bucks. Every other fan in Scotland will find renewed fvigour for the game in such circumstance. The grass-roots game will THRIVE.



    So just remember the gaudy displays of imperial triumphalism they vomited forth: Rule Britannia. No surrender. With each blow they shall rise again…yakkety-yak.



    Not this time they won’t. Thanks to this man:






    Who must be relishing this question:






    DON’T let them off the hook. Afford them the same mercies they’d afford us.


    DON’T wring your hands with any guilt. Rasie them in the air with joy.


    DON’T fill our screens and airwaves with concerned debate. Let raucous laughter greet the forthcoming images and sounds of lamenting Huns.



    Tell all the Huns you know: The universe, she is a bitch. And karma is her deadly kiss.



    Sleep with a smile on your lips. In our Celtic-supporting lifetimes, it will not get any sweeter than the coming months.



    Choccy indeed





    The above is simply SUPERB!



    Well done,mate.



    There are a few in danger of forgetting,i thought this deserves a repost.




  15. Awe Naw



    No its from the look at me, i said look at me , I said LOOK at me attitude you give out. You remember the I’ll scream and scream and scream until I make myself sick personality.



    And BTW when did you ever give me a tanking? Oh thats right in your dreams!



    The rest of your post sums you up entirely, a very pathetic little man.





  16. Pantaloon Duck



    I’m over here thanks.



    I left the Victor stuff as I thought the window and the administration were more important.



    Still got a few written let me know if I should carry on.

    My own experience of their supposed superiority was on the rugby fields of middle class establishment. Thanks to my dad’s entrepreneurship, I grew up their equal in suburbs of Southern Ayrshire.



    A big lad due to my Highland Viking ancestry, their sneers at my sign of the cross on running on to the field soon vanished, replaced by panic in their eyes, as my bulk crushed and upended them moving at full speed.



    Imagine how they must have felt at the final whistle, when my jersey came off to reveal a Celtic training jersey underneath. There were never any sneers then though.






    Aye,now all you softie non-Arshire types know what the Ayrshire Juniors is all about.

    Hail Hail

    Problem is who will ask the questions ?



    Our club should have been asking for years, the media won’t, uefa won’t they will want it kept quiet, the government won’t……



    In the mean time I just want them dead and gone.

  21. BBC in sectarian slur on Rangers according to no less an authority than Mr Leggat:



    BBC SCOTLAND and their rabid Celtic supporting reporter, Chris McLaughlin, could be in trouble over a sectarian attack on Rangers.



    In the middle of his report on why Jelavic left Ibrox, as he sought to blame Whyte for ushering the player out of the door, McLaughlin blundered.



    As he attempted to dramatise the story, which had been trailed THREE times, McLaughlin resorted to Twitter and held up his phone to show a number of Tweets.



    One was from a Celtic bigot and zealot named, HUNSKELPER.



    Hun has been banned by the BBC and has now been designated as a sectarian word by no less an authority than the assistant chief constable of Strathclyde, Campbell Corrigan.



    Therefore, BBC Scotland bosses can expect to be flooded with complaints about McLaughlin’s reckless reporting on Reporting Scotland and he may even be interviewed by police.



    BBC Scotland have of course had all co-operation with the club withdrawn by Rangers and their ire at this is driving them to broadcasting further extremes of anti Rangers propaganda, especially on Reporting Scotland where rabid Celtic man McLaughlin is flavour of the month.



    He seemingly needs no extra urging to put the put the boot into Rangers. Perhaps McLaughlin is still feeling the pain of a broadcasting castration when his mic was taken away from him in the Rangers media room earlier this season when he tried to beat the ban.

    The windpw’s closed now and you think that the administration stuff is more important than Victor Wanyama? Get a grip, man!

    Fergus & Neil to do our league flag raising duties at the start of the season. Give both their rightful titles as the men who killed the huns. What do you think?

    Mornin CQNrs,



    Do you get the feeling this is going to run and run, it needs a bit of a push from a handy creditor.

    Dont the courts actually appoint the administrator ?

  28. THE EXILED TIM at 09:27



    I think Celtic should be asking the questions, privately at the moment and escalate it once the huns are gone. If the huns are done away with, the SPL/SFA will need Celtic more than ever.




  29. Awe_Naw



    The courts formally appoint an administrator but it most (if not all) cases, its someone who has been asked by the company in trouble to act as their insolvency practicioner.








    Swell idea,as the wee man might say-he’s very laid back and urbane,you know!



    Really,I think he’s due one to cleanse the memories of his last one,and could there EVER be a more fitting one than the one that came as they went out of business?



    All due to Fergus,and it would be a just reward-so I’m in!
