Freaky seven goal Europeans

Seven goal scores are remarkably scarce in football but for the second time this month we look ahead to a Champions League opponent who has recently scored that number in a single game.  Helsingborgs went to town on Swedish Allsvenskan side Kalmar yesterday.  Kalmar are struggling in the league this season but were faring better in Europe until Young Boys of Berne overturned a Europa League deficit against them on Thursday.

Form appears to vary widely in the Swedish league, not idea circumstances for placing a bet.

Midweek friendly internationals will not help Neil Lennon’s preparations as Celtic face the third of five games on the road in the Highlands on Saturday before heading to Sweden, especially as the early season injury count rises inexplicably.  I would caution against risking too much on a bet on the Ross County game for this reason.  County’s remarkably year-long run without a league defeat might stretch another week.

The first issue of CQN Magazine of the new season is due to be with you soon.  If you would like to contribute an article to a future edition let me know,  Final shout also for anyone who would like to advertise to the same address.

  1. MK Dons linked with David Bentley.



    He falls into that bad boy category Neil likes to rehabilitate.

  2. The company that formerly owned Rangers was Craig Whyte’s “The Rangers FC Group Ltd”. Prior to this, the company that owned Rangers was Murray International Holding.



    The Rangers Football Club Plc was the football club. The prospectus asking potential investors to purchase shares back in 2004 clearly states under its definitions section:



    “Rangers”, “ Club” or “Company” – The Rangers Football Club PLC, incorporated under the Companies Acts and having its registered office at


    lbrox Stadium, Glasgow .



    Now, if this was not correct, then the Board of Directors of The Rangers Football Club Plc were wrongly offering shares and if I had bought one at that time, I would be complaining to the financial ombudsman due to misselling.

    Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Rapid Vienna, Palermo, St Etienne and Orebro still want their cash.

    ”So if Sevco have paid off debts to other football clubs run up by Rangers (ia), why can other creditors not expect to be paid too?”




    Because sevco had to agree to pay off the football debts to get a place in division three.



    It’s not altruism on their part.



    They wouldn’t have paid if they could have avoided it.

  10. Son of Gabriel on

    Hello all,


    Any employment law gurus on here who could help me work out what sort of percentage employment agencies take above the rate employees are payed by the contract company??



    I’ve read its common to be 10-25%, but have heard tale of 45% in certain areas like construction sites.



    Would rather be armed with as much knowledge as possible before being offered a permanent contract: Namely in the fact if the company were willing to pay an amount for someone needing training, hiring someone full-time because they can do the job means, imho, they should not be getting them cheaper.



    Anyone else’s experience in this regard, from either end of the stick as it were (employee, employer, other) would be greatly appreciated.



    Son Of.



  11. The Corruption in Scottish football ‘Graph’ has sparked a lot of paranoid imagination over on FF:



    That Harper McLeod helped that Pierce O’Leary claim back eez PPI fae eez credit card so it did. And ma maw used tae work in their office in the toon and she said that wan time Peter Lawells sister sat in the waiting room fur fifteen minutes, she even hid a cup a tea n’ a Seymours Shortbread Irish Biscuit- and it was served tae her by Jim Kerr’s wives sisters cousin fae…Carfin! They even hud a SCIAF boax oan the reception table! Yae could’nae make it up so yae could’nae! And them Nolan Partners ur nae better…a mean ‘Nolan’? Remember they sisters…they wurr Irish! Ah heard he done a Vatican tour wae his wife when they wint oan a Med cruise a couple a year ago…and that McLeod fae the LLP mob hiz goat copies a Billy Connelly’s Live DVD’s in eez hoose up in Bearsden…eez wife listens tae Susan Boyle anaw and eez goat that Tom Devine’s history a Scotland oan eez book shelves…yae no whit that means dae’nt yeez? A seen it when a wiz lookin thru thur windaes so ah did! Gospel! Stewart Regan and Neil Doncaster BOTH use green ink pens at work! Wake up guys! HOW MUCH INFORMATION DAE YEEZ AW NEED?! Vincent Lunny- dae yeez know him? His sixteen yer auld daughters goat a Catholic boyfriend who wiz seen crossing eezself in the Chapel! This Luuny character wiz even seen talkin’ tae Dr John Reid ower canopy’s it a post James MacMillan concert party…Neil Doncaster’s gardener wiz seen cutting eez grass wae a Sellic bumble-bee strip oan! Noo come oan yeez canny see it! Av proved it awe tae yeez! Let’s go! Av goat new souls oan ma brown brogues! Its time furr another march tae Hampden!

  12. Damn the Finnbogason story is true. Dutch newspaper reporting he has signed for Helsingborg.



    Lokeren is Djiby Fall after another striker lost. The Icelander Alfred Finnbogason signed a three year contract with the Swedish Helsingborgs, to which he was loaned out for six months.


    The 23-year-old Finnbogason came in 2010 from Iceland to Daknam, but could never decorate a fixed base overhang. From March this year he was loaned to the Swedish first division Helsingborgs. There he made with 13 goals and allowed to remain there permanently now.

    Failing that. The Crusade Trilogy by Robyn Young or The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.

    About time UEFA stepped in.


    Chelsea and Man City could be in financial trouble without these funds.

    Sounds like he will be digging deeper alright, and rightly so




  16. The latest posts from Alex Thomson are very disturbing. Especially the accusation he makes that Strathclyde’s finest are in some way corrupt and slow to prosecute complaints against their brethren.



    I know that there is a perception that the police in general are in the main Masonic and in Glasgow anti-RC but I think that Thomo is going too far with his latest accusations.



    I know for a fact that as soon as he complained about being threatened the Chief Constable put his assistant on the case and he is typing up his report at this very moment.



    So lay off the law Thomo they are on the case as can be seen from this video:

    When did you write that …. LLOOLL..

  18. Not usually my style (Tolkien,I believed,would never be outdone in the genre,and wrote one of the greatest works of literature,never mind that it was ‘fantasy’) but I have committed myself to ploughing through George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ epic…all 5 ‘books’ of it. After a hesitant start I am now engrossed and find it compelling…..possibly as good as Tolkien.


    I should know by the end……if I live long enough!

    ‘Ploughed through’ is close to what I say when someone asks me if I’ve read his books. Really hard going.

    Looks promising- if its a waste of my hard earned lolly then I’m holding you personally responsible for recommending it via your gratuitous nepotism. Seriously though, I wish I could finish something myself. Everything I write seems to sprawl endlessly. It sounds similar to something I’m trying to write. Maybe I can learn something from it.
