Six Celtic fans


As six Celtic fans face the prospect of months in a Dutch jail if police evidence is preferred, take a look at this CCTV video from the Euro Pub in Dam Square:

This is no more than the strong bullying the vulnerable.  It is shocking and affected more than just Celtic fans, other innocent bystanders were picked on.

What can you do about it?  We’re looking for around 40 more bucketeers to collect before the Aberdeen game on Saturday for the legal defence of the six Celtic fans.  You’ll need to get to the stadium a bit early, bucket shaking will be required.  That’s all.

If you can help, email dambhoys8@yahoo.co.uk for more information. You’ll enjoy it.

Thank you.

Remember the Q&A in the Columba Club, Blantyre, tomorrow. I’ll be there with Phil Mac Giolla Bhain and Paul McConville. Tickets available at the door, we get underway at 8pm. See you there.

If you have not been to Celtic Park since the last home game, be prepared for pandemonium around London Road on Saturday. No one will be able to walk or drive from London Road up Kerrydale Street to the Park. Check out the open routes here and get there early.

  1. The Honest Mistake loves being first on

    Not one celtic fan has done anything wrong in that video but the police trampled an innocent woman with a horse, savaged two innocent men with dogs and threatened every innocent man, woman and child with violence. Why the f are our governments not doing anything about this? Scum.

  2. Was very impressed with Norway’s sub on Tuesday. Got a great reception. Turned out he plays for the local team, Molde. Name is Mats Daehli. Thought Celts might look at him, but he was signed up by Man U 3 years ago at 15. Hope Celts ‘ links with Iceland produce me or two crackers .

  3. NatKnow - Supporting Wee Oscar on

    Good shout Paul67. I hope we can raise wnough cash to get effective representation for our fellow fans. On the wider issue – what can be done about the police in Amsterdam? They are clearly out of control.

  4. mighty tim supporting wee Oscar on

    Absolutely shocking treatment of our fans. Surely the club must complain to the Dutch government. We know that our own government won’t. If ever there was a time for our support to come together it is to help in anyway possible to get these bhoys admonished and brought home.

    The red telephone.



    Sorry to hear of your loss. Read about your father on the club website. Sounds like he was a great man. Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.




  6. That video is sickening.


    It highlights the gratuitous and excessive violence exerted by the Dutch police.


    The video captures one small zone of Dam square.


    You can easily imagine many, many other violent incidents all over town that night.



    Salmond should be demanding answers from the Dutch authorities about this.


    Or is he too busy sending his congratulations to the latest man at helm down Govan way?

    Don’t do that, my kids would be late for school with that K.O time……ESPN2HD Ch509 K.O 06.45am for NSW/VIC types :-)




  8. The Honest Mistake loves being first on

    How can salmond defend the Celtic fans abroad when he is persecuting them at home?

  9. Philbhoy - Bring it on!!!! on

    This really needs to be escalated to Government level.



    We should also be in touch with any other fans similarily brutalised to gather more evidence proving that the Dutch police and Ajax fans are not only corrupt, but cowardly bastards as well.



    I would have said that Uefa should also be involved but they are corrupt cowardly bastards and only look after themselves.



    Blood boilng right now!

  10. mighty tim supporting wee Oscar on

    Can someone please post the email for cqn10 tickets again. Sorry !!!

    Just seen that Footage..



    A Poster said earlier Celtic fans were getting sympathy in the Dutch Media..



    I Have read the Dutch papers nearly every Day since the game..



    Not a Bit..



    Scottish Scum..is the preferred Word..




  12. bigshuggy-it’s still possible to pick up a wee gem.Ole Gunnar Solskjear was only picked up ,as Man Ure were scouting Ronnie Jonsson .Big Bert sounds a confident bhoy,fingers crossed.

  13. I wonder if focus had a team in Amsterdam ? Would they liase with the dutch police?


    Would they see themselves as being there to help law-abiding Celtic fans or….?


    Another video taken by an Ajax fan show that their guys stole many Celtic banners. They were displayed upside down in the ajax ultra section of the arena .

  14. the long wait is over on

    Apologies in advance if I have misunderstood earlier posts but has Pat Woods , the Celtic historian and author, died?

  15. the long wait is over on

    Just checked the official website so I see its a relative of Pat (Jnr) who has died.






    The Red Telephone – condolences to you and yours.

    Is it possible that BDO and UTT are ‘holding off’ (under ‘political’ instruction) until after the Commonwealth Games …..!!!!??

  17. Hamiltontim is praying for Oscar on

    We all know that the government will do absolutely nothing to petition the Dutch authorities about the brutality we’ve witnessed In many clips from the events in Amsterdam.



    However, you can make a real difference.



    It’s time to talk the talk bhoys and ghirls, your fellow Tims, abandoned and castigated by media whores, need the support of those who can help most, the Celtic support.



    It’s not too late. Click on the link, offer to hold a bucket for an hour or two and play your part in demonstrating why we really are more than a football team.

    ‘Apologies in advance if I have misunderstood earlier posts but has Pat Woods , the Celtic historian and author, died?’







    No. It’s his uncle, may he rest in peace.

  19. I know bad language is banned from the site but I hope Paul will forgive me for saying that those Dutch Cops were a shower of sadistic bastards. Won’t be at Aberdeen game but will be at Milan game, I plan to meet a few CQN’ers and will give my contribution to the Defence Fund to one of them. We should not rest till they are all home, have their names vindicated and are compensated for their injuries.

  20. Red telephone. Sorry to read about your loss . I had the pleasure of speaking with your father on many occasions when up at the park , A real gent . My condolences to you and your family .

  21. AC Milan.



    Italian media are claiming that El Shaarawy will not be fit enough to be included in the squad for Saturday’s game v Genoa. They also claim that Milan will make a decision on Sunday re whether he travels to Glasgow or not.



    There are media claims that Milan will experiment with playing Kaka as a playmaker in front of a back 4 v Genoa.Cynics claim that is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to hide the fact that Kaka doesn’t have the pace to play upfront.



    Some pundits continue to claim that anything less than 2 draws in their next 2 games [ Genoa /Celtic ] will see Allegri being ” mutually consented”..

    I’m looking for a bit of stock trading advice.


    I was too young to buy shares in Celtic when they were first floated. I am not really in a position to invest a lump sum but would like to invest in shares of Celtic over a longer period of time. I currently own one share in Celtic in my own name. It was given as a gift and is more a novelty than an investment.


    I have done some digging myself and you can buy shares over a period of time as a regular investment but the minimum investment is £50 per month. That is still a bit high for me at the moment. Is it possible to buy one off each month say £20-£30 of shares? How would I go about this? I want to play the long game on this. If I have more money I will invest more but I want a share of the club I support. Some years I may buy none but others years I may be able to invest heavily or just invest regulalry at £50 a month.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I’m Pish at posting links so I don’t know if this will work, but above is hopefully another link to some of the events in the square. It is clear to me who started the aggression and any Celtic fans who fought back were merely defending themselves for what they believed was an attack by Dutch Hooligans.

  27. OK Link didn’t work but maybe some ghuy who is computer literate could look up the youtube video with the above title and post a proper link.

  28. Ht,



    Could you re-post the link to the bucket collection. If alls well I should be able to assist.



    It’ll take me back sixteen years ago when myself and tbj were sacked and we participated in bucket collections for the fight to be reinstated. Which we won.



    Tbj, being the organiser that he is did his at celtic park…I was sent to ipox. Grrrrr



    If I got a pound for every hun that told me to get a job, my bucket would have been full.



    Needles to say, the collections at celtic park were atleast three times the amount from ipox.
