Overwhelming benefits of being organised


St Mirren’s late goal at Ibrox yesterday was as welcome as it was unexpected, but it means little for us.  It was only the fourth league goal Rangers have conceded all season and Celtic almost conceded a fourth goal in the final minutes against Kilmarnock.  Four goals conceded in 11 games is championship winning form.

Rangers are certainly not a European-standard team at the moment but they are overwhelmingly organised.

We’re in trouble.

    Eastern European Goalkeepers ? —–



    Samir Handanovic ——–



    Consistently excellent for Udinese [ 2 top class saves earlier today as a ten men Udinese ground out a 0-0 away to Atalanta .] Excellent at saving penalties too —- Real good one for Slovenia in the game v Serbia —– the result of which put Estonia into the play-offs.



    A top class goalkeeper who cost @ £ 1 million ———

    Sorry, but quite the contrary, you can still drive, as long as you’ve applied for renewal, but your insurance is automatically invalidated.

  4. BSR, TTTT



    Thanks for the prompt reply.







    Not sure. I renewed mine about two years ago. I think the fee was £20.

  5. SwanseaBhoy



    Ahem. I think the exact phrase I used was “Vmhan or somebody”.



    Plus, I am only 48 and a half. Not even an auld haun on CQN.

  6. Vmhan – Be tricky to meet up before the game. We’re not leaving Chester until about 5:45pm. Maybe hook up inside – be good to put a few more CQN faces to CQN nom de blogs. Lennybhoy has sent me your number (although it hasn’t come through yet).



    Lennybhoy – not got Vmhan’s number – can you try again and can you let him have mine. Thanks.

    I suggest you find a tall building on top of which to ponder what makes you such a detestable person, and if you find, after soul-searching, that you can’t go on I suggest you leave your shoes for a homeless person who might need them and do the honourable thing.



    I have no idea which part of my post rattled your cage, or why, but your venomous response is clearly the product of an angry mind.



    As to your own suggestion about what I should do, I’ll pass thanks.

  8. BSR.



    Another question if you don’t mind.



    Is there an upper age when a pensioner must retake a driving test before renewing the licence?






    Its not for me – ya bollix!!

    “correct me if im wrong , but commons nearly tripped over his petted lip going up the tunnel after he sold the jerseys with his red card”



    The game was ‘sold’ because of rank-rotten defending by our two right-backs. Commons hasn’t been playing well since the start of the season, but has still made a positive contribution in some of the games he has played in. He is going through a spell of poor form which can and does happen to every player – that does not mean he has an attitude problem.

  10. Celtic_First



    Dammit – I didnae know you were on the blog tonight. Sneaky.



    And, you know me and not letting facts get in the way.



    Plus, forty eight and a half is very, very old when you’re only a laddie like me.



    John67 is a maybe.




  11. Philbhoy - It's just the beginning! on




    “We are in trouble”



    Are Neil Lennon, Johann Mjalby, Alan Thompson and the other guy, able or likely to get us out of “trouble”?



    In your opinion.

  12. Want to know what I think, No.



    Well,I’ll tell you anyway.



    When Rangers were beaten 2-0 by St Jonstone in the League Cup at Ibrox under Paul Le Guen, some St Johnsone players reported that Barry Ferguson and Kris Boyd were almost celebrating that Le Guen would be on his way. Which I thought was scandalous and they should have been shown the door.



    The same problem is at Parkhead just now, its obvious, there is talent at Parkhead enough to beat St Johnstone at Parkhead and Kilmarnock at Rugby Park and not be 10 points behind us at this point of the season.



    So its either they are not happy with the revolving captains saga, the team changing week by week, the public dressing downs, or the professionalism of the coaching staff. It is patently obvious the players have fell out of love with your manager.

    Been communicating with Cathach who got in touch about a post I put up about Langbank and Blairs FPs.



    He doesn;t post as often these days but lurks a lot, he is a bit older than us, I’m 49. However, he mentioned a few blogger posts that he reads with interest, he mentioned you were one of the them.



    Keep the Faith!



    Hail Hail!

  14. A quick interjection then I’m off again to watch Spooks.



    Celtic line-up to face Rangers at Ibrox on 24th March, after a hectic January transfer window, which saw the departure of Samaras (free), Bangura (£1.5M), Hooper (£7M), Kayal (£7M), McCourt (£1M), Majstorovic (free), Loovens (£1M), Rogne (free) and El Kaddouri (end of loan)…



    Fraser Forster


    Ricky Foster


    Andy Webster


    Charlie Mulgrew


    Emilio Izaguirre


    Danny Swanson


    Scott Brown


    Victor Wanyama


    Joe Ledley


    Kris Commons


    Garry O’Connor



    Subs: Jamie Langfield, Mark Wlison, Andy Webster, James Forrest, Ki Sung-Yeung, Anthony Stokes, Paul Heffernan. (U21 rule notwithstanding.)



    A bit more British & Irish fighting spirit and fewer foreign prima-donnas just here in the hope of securing a move to “a better league” (c.f. Mo Bangura). Note to Mo Bangura: You don’t win a move to the EPL or La Liga by scoring no goals in 8 starts in the SPL!

    James Forrest.



    Before I decide on your puerile advice, perhaps you can decide which pleaded you most.



    A Celtic victory to perhaps get excited about, or a defeat to really get down about.



    Don’t believe your own hype, however reverd you perceive it to be.

    have to disagree with you , yes commons has looked out of sorts , but he , along with others could have given more than thay have , we know in particular the heights that commons can reach …..bottom line is he hasn’t given his all for whatever reason .

    ok pal, im driving so dont want to encourage my pals the drink before the game lol



    Meet ye in there.






  18. Lurgan



    In a word – No



    Renewing your licence



    There is no legal age at which you have to stop driving, so whether you renew your licence is totally up to the individual. It is your responsibility to decide whether you are still fit enough to drive. By law, you have to renew your licence when you reach the age of 70, and then every three years after that.



    Ninety days before your 70th birthday, the DVLA should send you a D46P Application for renewal of a driving licence. You can either fill this in and return it by post, or you can use the DVLA’s online service to renew. There is no fee for renewal.

    A true story about an insurance claim.


    Quinn direct.


    Mate in Dublin ran into the back of another car, his heater wasn’t working and his windscreen misted up a bit, they refused to pay out, he tried to fight them and lost, cost him about 10k all in.


    I myself got stung by an insurance company years ago, I had a house fire, had just finished renovating the place, and duly paid the fee, when it came to the assesment they told me that I was under insured, this was after a rep from the company came out and advised me, I lost about 80k, they are legalised thiefs.

  20. James Forrest



    I think you need to take a breath before posting replys to individuals these days. That first paragraph is extreme and disproportionate. Have a look at yourself and let’s see the JF of old.

  21. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Paul 67 Rangers have not had the injury problems to key players that we have Izzy,Commons,Loovens,K.Wilson,Brown,Hooper now in my opinion this has had an adverse affect on Celtic and damaged the teams confidence.The Europa league has also taken its toll we are arguarbly in the toughest group and our young team both players and the manager and his staff are not ready for football at this level.Now if Rangers have a period when they have injuries to as many key players as we have I am certain they will struggle this league is not over yet there is a long way to go so lets get behind Lennie and the Bhoys support can carry them a long way critisism will only erode the little confidence they have.H.H.

  22. Big Chips



    You have Andy Webster starting at centre-back and also on the bench. I would have that Agathe-kicking injury-prone ex-thems excuse for a defender nowhere near Celtic Park.



    Opinions, eh.

  24. Man utd spent £20m on a keeper?…..



    Bring back boruc imagine the big man at half time v killie imagine him 19 mins into game!!!!!


    Lenny wouldn’t have needed that team talk!

  25. Except our board and ex board members would join that train wreck before you could say ‘let me in’.



    People have been saying the gravy train will end soon for as long as CQN has existed. There is absolutely no sign that there will be any major change in TV money in England any time soon.

    When ‘world’ football not just the premiership and championship clubs feel the effect of the sky ruling and that rich vein of cash runs out will we then see the true catasphophy that is heading this way due to the world economic climate.



    We THEN will thank our board and ex board members who financial expertise saw this train wreck coming and acted in the best interest of our club.


    Many big footballing names will join the same footballing graveyard as third Lanark .


    Banks would help footballing institutions but will now sacrifice them to save themselves!



    Who knows what the future holds but at the moment it looks very very bleak.



    Euro league anybody?
