  1. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on



    I for one would love to read the finished version, it had me chuckling out loud, the clumpany identifies all the latest hun hacks.



    It seems perverse tae wipe yer erse


    Wae Mail or Times or Sun


    Where headlines smudge ye, in the cludgy


    As newsprint tends tae run


    The ink aye leaks across yer cheeks


    An’ photies always smear


    Who wants a hack upon yer crack


    Or Murdoch up yer rear


    Who wants a new quink ink tattoo


    Of Keevins looking glum?


    Jabba the Hutt, across yer butt?


    My God that’s some size bum?

    Now how many bottles of Bucky would it take ?

    Larsson and McStay



    Such kind words. My sis is in tears with your testimony about her son. Jim and Boomer are well aware of their shared Duntocher and West Dunbartonshire history. Saint Patrick’s Dumbarton were Saint Thomas Aquinas most difficult opponents in my day. Great 2 teams at the time.



  3. Ard Macha



    Many thanks for your annual contribution to enlightening us about the role of the Bobby Sands and the 1981 hunger strikers.



    Keep it up and more power to ye.



    It is a story that will be told and told.



    Thanks my bhoy.

    Marcus has been playing with Joe Ledley’s former shoulder brace.


    He won a Gold medal today wearing it. :-)

  5. Canamalar,



    The verses are here, poised, all it takes is the enter key and sufficient booze to ‘Bognor the consequences’.



    I think it will be a late night session for that one! :)



    Hail Hail




  6. TBJ says Wee Oscar Knox is in heaven with the angels on




    Late in the game the camera went onto young Marcus. … I immediately thought of you and your family rooting the bhoy on .



    I remember watching his pal Jackson playing for us a few years back … think it was also against hibs . We picked up a couple of injuries early doors and I think Victor dropped to centre half with Jackson and Tommy rogic holding midfield. They looked weak…. just boys new to the rough and tumble of our game .



    I was well impressed with him today ..m that boy is a man now and I would suggest we renew our interest in him as broonys replacement

  7. Tontine Tim / Voguepunter,



    I have a great Celtic pal who worked for 10 years at the SFA. His role was co-ordinating the educational welfare of youth signings…,liasing with their clubs and schools & colleges, making sure they had classes organised and more importantly that these players attended and sat exams.



    He took my own bhoy on a works experience week, which was a massive thrill for him, meeting players and coaches etc, including at Celtic.



    One of his Celtic ‘students’ played a big part in today’s game……Michael Gardyne.



    Anyway, he told me that when phoning Celtic Park, he would occasionally get put through to an internal number, answered by John Clark. John would answer the phone by saying this:



    “John Clark, Lisbon Lion”



    Which is quite magnificent.

  8. Larsson and McStay on

    Delaneys….St Thomas Aquinas was a hard game at my age group too , but Clydebank High were my year’s big rivals but thankfully we won more than we lost to them over the years.


    Sorry , didn’t mean to make your sis cry, but all kidding aside you will all be obviously so proud of him making it this far , and the danger with a lot of boys is that they think they’ve made it when they get to this level…(some think they’ve made it when they start getting paid , never mind playing a first team game). In Jim , he has a manager who will recognise this , and that’s why I say Chris has landed lucky. The fact they come from similar backgrounds and the same area will help , as I know Jim will keep an eye out for him. I watched the game today with my Dad and brother , and we were all proud of Jim and delighted for him.


    Young Chris was a far more talented youngster than his manager (don’t tell him that) but if he can take on the attitude and commitment he’ll go far.


    I’m a guy who was always delighted to see the guys I played with make a career in the game , and lots of them did. I’m the same as a Dad and like to look out for the boys at my sons age who had a chance. Chris making his debut at Ross County , was great to see , as was young Greg Docherty who has played a lot of games for Hamilton this season.


    p.s…not seen Chris for years but I assume that was him on the pitch with his suit on today ?

  9. Delaneys Dunky on




    Jackson came to Scotland for one reason. My nephew Marcus is playing fitba for one reason. My Godson Boomer is playing fitba for one reason. Celtic supporters who want to live all our dreams. Marcus and Jackson achieved it. I would take the two of them back unsurprisingly. :-)

  10. Larsson and McStay on 13th March 2016 7:47 pm



    Jim McIntyre wasn’t really but what he has achieved in his career is testimony to working hard, making sacrifices and never giving up. Jim was always a good player as a boy but there were always others who caught the eye of scouts before he did.



    *Jim McIntyre’s late da was a year ahead of me at St Pats; I kind of knew him and was talking to him in the Black Bull at Dalreoch. My da was with me and he’s been gone 23 years now so it was a few years before that.



    He was telling me then that his bhoy wisnae a bad wee player and wanted to make a career out of it. He played in a fabulous St Pats team that was the first in 25 years or so to win the Scottish.



    Mrs TT has a cousin whose boy was in that side and was according to Macca a lot better than him. He was with Celtic BC then up tae Tannadice; didnae like wee McLean said he was a bully and then another chance at Celtic. He was also pally with one of Jack’s lads; sadly he drifted away fae the game.

  11. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on




    Congrats to Marcus and Chris.


    You all deserve that success.


    Proud day for you.

    Larsson McStay



    Chris was invited onto the pitch by Doddsy. Was a proud Godfather when I saw him in his RC suit and tie post match. Thanks for your kind words. My sis and Boomer love J Mac and Doddsy and the emotions are reciprocated. Looking good for him. Landed lucky.

  13. Larsson and McStay on

    Tontine Tim



    Jim’s Dad was a great guy , probably watched every game his son ever played …may have struggled to get to a few Bristol City and Reading games but he was so proud of his bhoy. I know this as I met him at Ayr races a couple of years before he passed away , and all we talked about was his boy, (who was still playing at that time). He was immensely proud of his son , but also couldn’t believe that that whole school team you mentioned weren’t playing senior…(my brother played in it and their local boys club also won the Scottish for the only time in their history)


    Is Mrs TT’s cousin’s boy’s initials DB , as he fits the bill regarding Celtic and Dundee Utd ?


    You may have missed a small piece in the media here a couple of months ago (i think it was before the semi with us) and the BBC or Sky interviewed Jim McIntyre. He talked about not being the most talented youngster and how he had trials with teams such as DU , but mentioned DB as being “a far better player than he was” and that he had been signed at that time…..thought it was a nice touch from a guy who has never forgotten his roots

  14. Anything that makes Billy Dodds happy makes me unhappy.



    Quicker Liam Henderson gets back to the Hoops the better.

  15. Captain Beefheart on

    Given that we have one competent striker at Celtic Park and that our scouts couldn’t find a striker in a union, shouldn’t we go and get Hooper back? CL qualification ties aren’t the place to blood new players who don’t know Celtic.

  16. Gerryfaethebrig on

    HT 8.29



    Is there any need for a link like that on a Celtic website ?????



    Do we need love songs on a Celtic website ???



    You better believe it, we need all the good stuff, as in no hatred



    Delaneys Dunky



    I lost a post there, I remember when Chris “left” Dundee Utd (only from your words) hope your godson goes on to have a great career, when one door closes another opens



    Hail Hail

  17. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Delaney’s, thankfully the club kept a hold of the shoulder brace used by the current best beard in football and Marcus has used it.



    Apart from Michael Gannon , no one in the press seems to acknowledge the last nine cup competitions have been won by eight different clubs. I know we should have won at least three more of those cups but another positive of the Sticky buns dying has been the spreading about of cup wins.

    Tontine Tim



    Is Mrs TT’s cousin’s boy’s initials DB, as he fits the bill regarding Celtic and Dundee Utd ?



    *Aye it is DB and that’s what we call him. A wasted talent.

  19. Absolutely delighted now that I’m getting to Dublin for Easter.



    The Minx really is very special and so is my future mother in law who’s going to do babysitting duties that weekend.



    She’s a frequent lurker on CQN, so if you see this Mary Doll, many thanks.

  20. Gerryfaethebrig on

    That should have been family songs !



    Song for Marcella could be described as boring family stuff so watch out in case any of the Cqn “boring Judges” are adjudicating

  21. eddieinkirkmichael on

    Ard Macha I read Bobby’s diaries a few years ago. Came across them again last last year and was amazed what I didn’t take in the first time I read them. I look forward to your posts as every time I re-read his words there is always something new that jumps out at me. Keep posting bud.



    Great weekend, Friday night in the company of a few CQNers. Thank feck there’s not a questionnaire prior to being allowed on the blog btw as there would be no one posting going by Friday night’s quiz.



    Spent Saturday in the company of DD, Marspapa and his daughter. Had a couple of drinks after the game, did a bit of shop lifting in Partick then got the train home. Great wee day oot.



    Spent today on the couch suffering.

  22. Delaneys Dunky on




    Absolutely delighted you are making the pilgrimage to Dublin.


    Ryan and I will see you there.

  23. Happy Birthday to Lisbon lion John Clark indeed.


    12 and a bit years ago my daughter managed to persuade Celtic to let her do her work experience at Celtic park.


    John really looked after her and made sure she was spoiled rotten. It was an international week so most of the players and manager at the time Martin O’Neill were away most of the week. However Lenny and Henrik were both there. He sorted it for her to have lunch with them, Lenny ordered KFCs but he told my daughter under no circumstances was she ever to tell Martin O’Neill what they had ordered. I think that tells you have Martin ruled the roost. On the Thursday Martin returned, seemingly not in the best frame of mind, again Mr Clark looked after her and said it would be best to go to the Celtic shop, out of the way for a bit. My 40 th birthday was coming up so John Clark got all the players to sign a card for me as a surprise and finally my daughter’s favourite,by a long way,was Shaun Maloney, he arranged for Shaun to meet her without telling her much to her delight.


    Hail Hail John Clark.

  24. Delaneys Dunky on




    You forgot the bit about hurling obscenities at the tangerine crimplene walk on Dumbarton Rd. Scum

  25. Eddieinkirkmichael



    I really enjoyed Friday night and thank you for coming.



    I saw that GuyFawkesaheroforever posted that it was a shambles and that he left before the quiz started. I can only apologise to him and hopefully we’ve learned a few lessons from Friday.

  26. Larsson and McStay on

    Tontine Tim….he was good player , and more talented than Jim Mc….one played on the right wing the other on the left for school and boy’s club…. in the days when teams played with 5 up front.


    GK, RB, LB , CH, RH, LH , OR , IR CF, IL , OL……and now we only ever see one up front, in the abomination that is 4-5-1


    p.s thanks for reminding me of the Black Bull….I think it was gone before I could ever get in but I do remember it well

  27. Ard machá



    Keep the posts coming



    Iv the prison diary book, immense reading. Got great portrait at home of Bobby by one of the bogside artists . Pride and joy.



    If you have it handy try and post his short story at some stage. The monster . Powerful aswel so it is.



    His name will live on and on , yourself and many others will make sure of that.

  28. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Jimmynotpaul, a great experience for your daughter.



    My wife and I were in the Hamilton Sainsbury’s about a month ago.



    John Clark and his wife walked passed the two of us . I said to my football hating wife, John Clark had walked passed us . I got a you really are an a-hole look from her when I tried to explain who John Clark was.

  29. weet weet weet(GBWO) on

    Sorry for a non Celtic post ;)





    You may not know that many nonliving things have a gender.


    For example…



    1) Ziploc Bags-


    They are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.



    2) Copiers-


    They are Female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. It’s an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.



    3) Tire-


    Male, because it goes bald and it’s often over-inflated.



    4) Hot Air Balloon-


    Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there’s the hot air part.



    5) Sponges-


    Female, because they’re soft, squeezable and retain water.



    6) Web Page-


    Female, because it’s always getting hit on.



    7) Subway-


    Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.



    8) Hourglass-


    Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.



    9) Hammer-


    Male, because it hasn’t changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it’s handy to have around.



    10) Remote Control-


    Female…… Ha! You thought it’d be male. But consider this-it gives a man pleasure, he’d be lost without it, and while he doesn’t always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.




  30. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Ard Macha, after our recent win over Caley , my son and I saw a guy wearing a Bobby Sands scarf. The image on it was from the only picture I’ve ever seen of Bobby .
