Mulgrew’s magnificent delivery


I watched Scotland play a more accomplished Wales last night.  No one in blue played particularly well but when Charlie Mulgrew prepared to take a corner from the right in first half stoppage time we knew Wales were in danger.

The pace, low trajectory and movement Charlie gets on the ball negates the natural advantage the defending team has.  The goal had little to do with the young lad who got on the end of the cross, just as Celtic’s remarkable success from corners has little to do with their ability to attack the ball.

The Wee Oscar 4 Life team have asked me to pass on this message:

Wee Oscar 4 Life are delighted to be offering you the chance to win a fantastic and very unique auction prize.

We have been donated a very special bottle of 8 year old Bowmore, which has come straight from the cask. The Whisky is 59.4%, unlike a normal malt whisky which is cut to 40% proof.

The whisky was distilled on 13 March 2001, and bottled on 26 June 2009.  It has been donated by a very kind CQNer. However, not content with already donating 3 bottles from his share of the cask to raise funds for Wee Oscar , we now have his prized possession:

Bottle no 1 of 251.  A very special prize in aid of a very special wee bhoy.

    a few years back my brother in law who was a currant bun and was the union rep in a port Glasgow shipyard who got his brother a job so I asked him if there was any chance he could get me in.


    here’s what he said nah not much chance with your name frank but said I my second names not really a catholic name its only our family who I know of around here that are catholic


    true said he butttt all the first names give it away


    frank, Joe, mick, pat, widnae work you would be right out the door wtf couldn’t believe that shit still went on 90’s Scotland


    glad now that I didn’t get in who wants to hide what and who you are for a job, Celtic and proud of it


    Hail Hail

  7. It appears that on CQN the independence issue


    comes down to 2 camps


    1/ A vote for independence is a vote for an


    anti catholic independent Scotland


    2/ A vote for for staying in the Union is a a vote


    for an anti catholic Scotland as part of the UK.


    I would suggest that we raise the level of debate.

    Can’t have my opinion on that but I was surprised At Cyprus as a comparison to Scotland. I think that Slovakia whose economy depends on German economy could be better example. Oil and Gas? Shortly true story. We always depended on crude oil and gas from Russia. I remember that in very early nineties about 60 percent of crude oil demand was covered by the supplies from Russia. The trick was that all that amount flew through the company that was registered on Cyprus. Russians left no other option. Interesting thing was that company from Cyrus was two guys from Russia who were musicians of Russian singer in the past. If bigger country survived that, Scotland will survive bigger changes.


    Still practicing my memory.


    When in a car today listened to Rory Gallagher CD. Not a big fan of Metallica but can’t remember what Rory’s song(s) they played? They played for sure but question about title(s) eating me

    Thanks for the reply. As far as the phone goes, stick it in a jar with dry rice.





    In the nineties,bloody shocking.

    No, no one can be Marxist and Catholic in the same time. Communism, Marxism … come from evil.

    I’m not sure that you’ve understood that particular argument (there’s lots more but one step at a time).



    Let me try to help you.



    1. There is in Scotland an element of anti Irish Catholic bigotry.



    2. This element does not exist to any meaningful extent in England.



    3. If Scotland separates from the UK the element of anti Irish Catholic bigotry in Scotland will increase.

    No problem at all.


    I really do hope to meet you at some time, as I genuinely enjoy your contributions.


    At Paradise, a CQN event, a GB support march, or even just in the ole Gazebo.


    I’m pretty sure it will happen.

    What do you

    They’re on offer, only £10


    for 24 cans’, he says



    Put them back. We can’t afford it,’ says


    the wife and they carry on shopping…



    A few aisles later the


    woman picks up a £20 jar of face cream and sticks it into the trolley.



    What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the man,



    It’s my


    face cream. It makes me look beautiful,’ she says.



    The man


    replies… ‘so does 24 cans of Stella and it’s half the bloody price’
