If you want to know why this clubs is special…


The Celtic Supporters Association Rally in the Kerrydale Suite last night was a complete joy.  On the way out I remarked that the club was in good hands with the Association.  This was their 64th annual rally, over generations they have protected and cultured the unique spirit of our football club.

For me, it was the third opportunity in a week to hear the Thai Tims, who performed an excellent set.  Paul Lennon of the Good Child Foundation is a real inspiration and example to us all.

It was also a great opportunity to spend a few hours with many from the CQN community, always a treat.  I know one CQN’er who is going to think twice before digging up Tom (“get your facts right”) Boyd on the blog again, just in case our former treble winning captain reads it and goes looking for him on a night out.

To continue the spirit of what we are all about, on Saturday 19th May there is a charity dinner in Glasgow for The Andrea Kearney Fund, which supports women who are diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy.  The fund in memory of Andrea, who was diagnosed while expecting her fifth child and died in 2008, aged 41.

It promises to be a great night for an important cause, I hope you can support it.  You can book tickets here.  I look forward to seeing you there.

You can buy a hard copy of the new issue of CQN Magazine via Magcloud here.

    Celtic TV on at Celtic Park with away games shown live. Under 19’s play to a full house. Kids in free and a great big green party. Buy your goods in your own shop.

    The majority of SPL chairmen prefer to have the blue pound over sporting integrity. Were Celtic to be in a mess similar to the huns then they’d take the opposite view.

    The sfa and spl bare corporate responsibility for allowing cheating, you might like the all the boards might find it a trivial matter, I don’t.

  4. What is the Stars on



    God, grant me the serenity


    To accept the things I cannot change,


    Courage to change the things I can,


    and wisdom to know the difference.

  5. TET



    Like yourself I can see both sides of the argument regarding the huns punishment and the Celtic boards response to it.



    The one thing that struck me was if the Celtic Board were to ignore the wishes of the majority of their ‘customers’ (ie us, the support) they run the risk of a major meltdown of their customer base.


    Think Ratners (no, not the huns)…their CEO/owner publicly admitted that they sold cheap crap to the gormless. How long did Ratners last after that?


    The Celtic board if they ignore us, and they have previous experience of doing this, could conspire to make a great club worthless.


    I am waiting, impatiently, on Celtic Plcs response to the cheating and lying carried out by the hun, SFA, SPL, refereeing body and the whole damn Scottish establishment. Once that is forthcoming I will decide whether to continue to support Celtic.



    Ard Macha and Oglach…thanks so much for remembering one of the great heroes of the modern age, Bobby Sands. I can not believe he gave up his life so long ago…it seems like yesterday.

    Our Board can do eff all until they can see(in law) that our club’s interests have been compromised. That is it.



    That is EXACTLY it….!!!!!!!!!!



    Too many Fholks on here searching for excuses to criticise our Board for some strange reason(s)……..

  7. celtic plc need to do what is best for shareholders, correct, so think of it like this



    domestic t.v revenue = 3 million vs. ticket revenue = 20 million and merchandising 20 million.



    which of the two protects shareholders interest??????????



    all the stuff about banks going to other spl clubs and indicating a vote against rangers would impact on their credit line should explain using the simple model above



    i.e. dundee united, hibs, aberdeen, hearts



    1.5 million for domestic t.v vs. 10 million for tickets and merchandising and soon the banks will have a change of mind, cause they won’t get any money otherwise.

    Celtic have not given their tacit agreement to ANYTHING ………and anyone who says they have is talking a load of old tosh, or the have an agenda….




    I hope you are 100% correct. The only agenda i have is i want the Celtic board to do the right thing for the support and club which is one and the same in my opinion. If the Celtic support does not want the Zombie Hun FC in the SPL the board is beholden to reflect that opinion. If they lose the battle ‘fair enough’ but at least they will have tried and will have fought the good fight – we can all accept that i assume.


    We are the most powerful entity within Scottish football it’s about time we did a bit of sabre rattling. Just my opinion

    I been all over the world and seen change (Europe, South Africa and China) but our little backwater stays the same.



    I now live in a little one horse town in western Oregon – Hun free thank God!

    I can just imagine the orcs if/when they are allowed back into


    premier league..



    the peeple will lagh at us and we will be treated like our forefathers…


    oh how they will laugh at our 4 horses of the apocalypse, pass the parcel etc…



    we need to be strong here…

  13. Neil canamalar Lennon hunskelper extrordinaire on



    So two contracts for how long had no effect.


    This is not fiction.


    Grow a pair.


    My only agenda is to see the Celtic support respected by the board.


    That is clearly not happening.


    You might enjoy being a victim, I never will be.

    What can be done? Here’s a suggestion. Celtic fans should walk out of Tannadice en masse at halftime tomorrow.




    This is a good idea we have one game before the meeting on Monday.



    The trouble is it’s 17.45 the day before the game which gives us a window of about 19 hours,the assocation and the affilation buy there tickets in bulk for this game.



    We need everyone to get behind this idea,if you have contacts in these groups get on to them tell there members to walk out. Get it up on every Celtic website asap.



    Everyone going to the game tomorrow spread the words on your buses etc. We can debate the life out of this situation on here till the cows come home,know it’s time for action.



    We are GLASGOW CELTIC if the will is there amongst the fans we can make this happen.

    I get it..dont fund huns!


    Good one.

  17. Just in from work and logged on.


    Enjoyed last night at one of the CQN tables, nice to put faces to silly names!


    The Thai Tims were magic……..AGAIN. What other club inspires so much?


    The bad news was I had to leave early, however, the good news is SMB got home safely, nothing broken.





    Where’s ma painting????

  18. Neil canamalar Lennon hunskelper extrordinaire on

    Any roadmap,


    Back to holiday mode


    Keep the pressure on the Celtic board, they are our only pressure point.

  19. ElDiegoBhoy on




    With a rain forest climate:o)



    Sounds like here!

  20. What is the Stars on

    Margaret McGill


    I generall dont fund huns myself,been to ibrox once


    I suppose they get a small percentage of my sky subscription but sure what can I do about that.





    Dont worry I have plenty of backbone,


    Problem is I live in the real world



    Tell me,all slagging and joking aside, please


    What would you do,if you had all the power at Celtic Park


    Exactly what would you do,in simple terms please


    Thanks in advance

  21. Seen FPLG led the team on a Lao of honour. Not much of a response from the thousands of empty seats right enough.



    bares couldnae walk away fast enough.




  22. Auld Neil Lennon heid on

    Hoi guys



    was I cut off on Clyde?



    My phone went quiet and cleared.

  23. Dublinbhoy



    What happens if the board say, we voted against newhunco, nothing more we can do.



    That won’t wash for me, nor will it with many thousands more.



    I remember Gerald saying that, and I honestly thought of it as as well re the situation we are in.



    Not a good time really, we should be as happy as pigs in sh1t, alas we are not, and we could be the only ones who lose from this.

  24. Why do they need to wait untill the FTT to investigate the 2 contract situation ?

  25. God grant me the courage to challenge the things that must be challenged, the strength to stand up to those who must be opposed.




    To allow Newcheats into the SPL will make Scotland an international laughing stock, it will render the SPL impotent in applying the rules.


    Why should any team adhere to the rules when one team can act with impunity.


    What is the point in trying to win a sporting event when the ultimate results are predetermined. I mean over decades rather than one year.


    I’m not looking for Celtic to try any stunts that will damage the club, but to clearly and publicly make the case for sporting integrity.


    I don’t know what I’ll do if the cheats are allowed back into the SPL, but how Celtic act will go a long way to helping me make the decision, as will the opinions of others, here and elsewhere.

  26. Checking old files, mails. Deleting some of them.

    Stuck in work for a few more hours yet.



    Had a wee thought…..



    If the huns form a NEWCO how does that affect current sponsorships with the oldco. Surely these cannot be transferred either?????
