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!

    Should that no have been “Whyte was a pikey player in the knicker drawer”?

    My favourite Marx brother was always Karl






    He use to tour vaudville with his partner “Fast” Freddie Engels doing their slapshtick “Das Cap it’s ill” routine along with others like “Craig Whyte’s Manifesto” song and sand dance.


    I remember once when Karl and Fast Freddie were to play Ipox (the home of badgers and tax dodgers) with their “Withering away of the state (the state being transformed after revolution into a ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’, that is, democracy, and eventually withering away.) Revue of 1928 tour he got his good friend Pat O’Brien fresh from playing Father George Connolly in “Angels with Dirty Faces that will watch your car for sixpence Mister” to bless the home dressing room before going on stage that night.



    Sadly Karl died penniless after leaving showbiz to become a hedgeclipper fund vulture capitalist where he lost all his money when he took a bad loan from an Octopus and a slimey Squid called Moonbeam and bought a losing sporting business managed by


    Fatty Arbuckie McMoist, his good friend Vlad “the Lad” Lenin at his funeral said “Karl’s slapshtick was opium for the masses”

    I think there are 2 issues.



    1.) He tried to buy Ayr and failed;


    2.) While at Rangers, David Murray applied for an interdict, on behalf of his company Carnegie, for a debt of around £30,000 owed by Airdrie which contributed to liquidators being brought in.

    …He backed up this tale by insisting a former high-profile player remembered seeing Whyte on match days…





    Aye, I can imagine a player recognising one person from crowds in excess of 40,000.



    ‘I remember that guy, he sat in the 14th row, 63rd seat the end in the Govan stand, front tier’

    I would not be surprised if transfer fee is not in instalments.


    Jelavic told Croatian media that it was Rangers who delayed signature under the contract.


    I expect the news from Austria about the sum Rangers owe to Rapid. It should be 1 or 2 million euros.


    I wonder if they have further sell percentage clause?


    From that 6,5 million euros 5 percent is automtic payment to the previous clubs.

    “(Ayr United) 1987/8 businessman David Murray made a bid to buy the club but his offer was deemed to be unsuitable by the clubs shareholders and the bid was rejected.”



    The aren’t known as The Honest Men for nothing.

    Gordon_J : got to make all these other club supporters sit up and take notice.


    Only Hoops fans are seeing the big picture here, with the other supporters thinking that it couldn’t possibly affect them….oh dear!




  10. Amadeus is winding us up, there’s probably no story*.



    *Sorry, Amadeus – I have no idea if your story is legit. But when I say stuff like this there’s usually a great result.


    Like when I slag Scott Brown for being awful – he normally scores within five minutes.

  11. brimmer 'kano 1000' on




    You’re doing my nut in. I’m going out at 5 & been lurking awwwww day(as per)



    I can’t say your ‘at it’ due to your great scoop the other night, so for the love of God man,



    tell us, tell us, tell us.




  12. Nikica Jelavic says he was willing to stay with Rangers, insisting the final decision to sell him to Everton rested solely with club chairman Craig Whyte.



    The Croatian striker moved to the English Premier League on deadline day in a £5m transfer, hours after Whyte released a statement claiming the player wanted to leave the club.



    Jelavic, speaking for the first time as an Everton player, made clear his ambition to play in England’s top flight.



    But he also revealed talks with former boss Ally McCoist over his happiness to stay in Glasgow if required.



    “My dream was to play in the English Premier League but I never forced my transfer.



    “I spoke with Ally McCoist and said if the president wants me to stay, I’ll stay, and if they need money and want me to leave, I’ll leave. The club decided.”



    Whyte made his claims in an open letter to supporters on Rangers’ website at the same time Jelavic was undergoing a medical with his new side.



    The chairman’s statement read: “One, the player wanted to leave and there is no point in trying to keep a player who no longer wants to be at Ibrox.



    “Two, the club is simply not in a financial position to turn down offers for players which give the club a good return on its original investment.”




  13. mm, just got another confirmation! I may have jumped up and said “ya dancer”.


    But I won’t spill!


    Maybe later.


    It does not do to slag poor Amadeus,


    He is working hard for the cause.


    Put it this way, Amadeus is chopping some onions and drinking a rather decent Pinot Grigio.


    All will be revealed soon, bhoys.


    If you have champers, get ready to uncork.


    love always,



  14. Dear Enemy.


    May the Lord hate you and your kind. May your skin turn orange in hew. And may you head fall off at an awkward moment.



    Wait you enjoy being an Orange Hew?

    I’ve figured out where their lot’s missing millions has gone!



    The MBB has bought millions Euromillions tickets with it hoping to win the rollover!



    It’s the only chance their lot have ever got of winning in Europe again!

  16. tommytwiststommyturns on

    Sorry folks, I inferred that Amadeus was Scoop Guidi and he’s flounced off into the ether….heartfelt apologies.







    SPILL, ya bam!!!!




  17. If this story doesn’t involve at least one of the following I’m going to be very disappointed.



    1. a goat


    2. Hatie Jacques wearing nothing but a nappy


    3. The Dagenham Girls Pipe Band.

    Aye. I know…



    They broke the mould with Leggat – he really is hysterical with sprinklings of genuine lunacy. Like Baileys … he’s best enjoyed in small measures though.



    I eventually came across your replay regarding former Hun manager Myth last week. Hard to disagree with any of it.

    David Murray used to advertise at Celtic Park before he got involved at Rangers. Check out the footage from Paradise in the 80’s. Watched the Real Madrid game on ESPN Classics at Celtic Park in the early 80’s a few months ago. Behind the goals at the Rangers End there is a sign for Murray International Metals.


    Not doubting your story but he did advertise in Paradise.

    C’mon Amadeus



    The site is not called Celtic late news!!!



    Even drop a hint!

  21. Guidi knows it, tune in.

    Guidi and Jabba may know “it” but they will probably say nothing if “it” casts TFOD in a bad light.
