Sure things don’t exist in football


St Mirren lost at Tynecastle in November, their fifth consecutive in the league, but since then they have lost only twice: at Celtic Park and last Saturday, when the roof fell in against Ross County.  During that run they recorded good wins against Dundee United and Motherwell.  They sit second bottom of the league but this is an incredibly tight league.  Saints are as close to bottom Dundee as they are to second top Inverness.  In straightforward terms, St Mirren are a form team.

Anyone who believes Celtic are a sure thing better think again.

Remember the days when it would be impossible to get past 8pm and still not know Montrose earlier took a point at Ibrox? Sign of the times it wasn’t really news, I suppose.

    They are all out to get us……………………IT’S A CONSPIRACY



    McCoists’ protestations of we have been punished enough are old hat and very predictable. The paragraph that concerns me is the opinion of the writer.



    “The likelyhood is an outcome that brings a wrist-slap for Rangers ,so avoiding any real furore”.



    So an independent commitee shall find a verdict to appease the seething masses .


    If this “wrist-slap” scenario is the decison of the commitee ,then I shall be looking for Celtic to make a stance on it.


    It is after all, a matter which is extermely relevant to our club .




  2. Anelka



    Scored 3 goals in past year.



    He was arguing with Shanghai Shenhua fans after pash performances.



    Announced he was going to retire last month after another huff.



    He argued with a fan after refusing to take part in the traditional team bow at the end of a game.



    The fan, who made a 700-mile round trip from Shanghai to attend the match, shouted back at Anelka, “I took time off work and paid for flight tickets and a hotel to come to support you all, but you did what?” A perplexed Anelka replied, “Why me? Why don’t you find a Chinese player?” The fan shouted back, “Because you are the captain and you should be responsible for this [bowing to the fans] – if you don’t respect us, we don’t respect you.” Anelka replied, “I don’t care.”

  3. Morning from a hun infested workplace.


    Not many smiley faces today.


    Hope Andy Murray does it today,another string to my bow as they hate his affiliation to hibs.


    3-0 to the hoops today will be the cream on the cake.hail hail.

    I like the bowing to the fans idea….. typical of eastern culture to show that kind of respect .



    Anelka has always been a very selfish individual . Don’t think his addition to juve will go down well from a team perspective

  5. Valentine's Day on

    Good morning Timland.



    It will be interesting, to see if there is any


    fall out from Kenny Shiels revelation’s on Sportsound


    last night.




    Going to the game today,Celtic h/t f/t 3/4


    A fool and his money easily parted,

  6. ACGR….Just a simple sparkie mate…….will need to rely on cqn for updates on the game i think…dont think AFN carry the coverage of the cups or league….but the champions league they do carry……..

  7. Sipsini



    Im smiling at the thought of all your zombie workmates having to drive home through the green and white army at 1pm today

  8. Fat Sally under pressure does not react well, he ( and Green) have been very lucky that they are in div 3 and all the teams are gash, part time clubs with resources less than 1% of what Green has. They have been getting results by only just but yesterday were caught short and their inadequacies fully exposed.



    Really looking forward to Dundee Utd, fired up with all the nonsense around this match ripping them apart.


    I might even get a ticket for this!

  9. Up today , full of the joys, hoops going to another final, good luck Bhoys, hope Andy Murray does the biz, and Sevco stumble from 1 crisis to another.


    Kenny Shiells is also an unlikely hero figure but go on my son, truth is on your side!!!



    Oh give me joy in my heart , keep me praising, oh give me joy in my heart I pray ……

  10. channelislandcelt



    You sound genuinely shocked this will occur in Zombieland.



    It was always going to be the case, the entire football structure of Scotland has went out its way to keep them playing.

  11. West Wales Celt on

    On the road all day so will be appreciating CQNers providing updates on the game.


    Lets be brutal out there…



  12. SSN



    doing a wee piece on the Brentford v Chelsea game….Brentford have a pub at every corner of the ground



    Sky guy going round all four …third pub The New Inn…run by landlord Hogan ….in the background a big CFC picture …looked like a nice pub :-))

  13. Lionroars



    Just read that article you copied…thanks



    It appears that the re writing of history and distortion of facts remains as prevalent as ever



    Orwell could have written another masterpiece based on the MSM ‘s reporting of the Hun /sevco debacle



    The fact that they have no rightful place in the league seems to have been lost on them



    And this arrogance by TFPLG re his acceptance of title stripping …I suppose he has to mask his appalling managerial abilities with something …rabble rousing hubris



    I hope he remains in charge of thems for as long as I takes for the Newco to go the way of old one …which might not be too long

  14. Sipsini



    Back in the day .. When we won the league at love st. I had a tenner bet with him that we would win our last 8 matches and win the league.



    Im not a betting man .. And money never mattered much to me …. But … I enjoyed taking that debt

  15. Murdochbhoy, yermanfromMK on

    Good morning CQNers



    I hope NL has told the players to use today’s game as a rehearsal for their next cup game.




    I think the time has come for Kenny Shields to bypass the SFA and put his evidence on Andrew Dallas in front of the public and let them decide who the guilty party is.



    On this day when it’s all about Celtic I can’t help but add……




    MILITARY chiefs have criticised Remembrance Day events organised by Sevco



    Top brass branded the half-time parade during a match against Peterhead in November as inappropriate.



    THE half-time Remembrance tributes organised by Sevco have been banned and will be replaced by just a minute’s silence in future following the complaints.

  16. stephenofderby on

    Just woke up and realised that I tried to post on here last night. I tried to be very clever and post a link to my favourite song. Whoops, maybe my computing skills are wee bit rusty/non existent. Cant stop laughing at how much an eejit yae can make of yerself. Never on the computer apart from this site so thats how ill excuse any poor etiquette or computer skills. I have been a sideline observer for so long that I thought i would jump in and contribute. still cant stop laughin at maself. Anyway, I have a thick skin and love Celtic which are the two credentials which I believe can allow you to post your opinions on here. Thats my disclaimer. Ahm no a darksider!! Onto important business, come on Celtic eye on the ball, win the fight, play your football and start bagging the cups that are put before ye.

  17. Good morning from a snow free Manchester. Good day of sport today. Andy Murray has just started and the Bhoys later.



    Got the radio and iPhone all primed while I am working. Got to make up for the day off yesterday.



    C’mon the Hoops

  18. Good morning friends from a dry and bright looking East Kilbride. Some amount of rain fell during the night though.



    Hope that Andy wins this side of noon then off to the game.

  19. Three friends married women from different parts of the world…


    The first man married a Filipino. He told her that she was to do the


    dishes and house cleaning.


    It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a


    clean house and dishes washed and put away.



    The second man married a Thai. He gave his wife orders that she was to


    do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking.


    The first day he didn’t see any results, but the next day he saw it was better.


    By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done,


    and there was a huge dinner on the table.



    The third man married a girl from Ireland. He ordered her to keep the


    house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed,and hotmeals


    on the table for every meal.


    He said the first day he didn’t see anything, the second day he didn’t


    see anything but by the third day,some of the swelling had gone down


    and he could see a little out of his left eye and his arm was healed


    enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.


    He still has some difficulty when he pees.

  20. A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen


    mask over his mouth and nose. A young student nurse appears and


    gives him a partial sponge bath.



    “Nurse,”‘ he mumbles from behind the mask, “are my testicles black?”



    Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, “I don’t know, Sir. I’m only


    here to wash your upper body and feet.”



    He struggles to ask again, “Nurse, please check for me. Are my


    testicles black?”



    Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate


    from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers.




    She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.



    She looks very closely and says, “There’s nothing wrong with them,


    Sir. They look fine.”



    The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says


    very slowly, “Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen


    very, very closely:



    Are – my – test – results – back?”

  21. Even at this early stage the Oz tennis final is a battle royale.


    I notice the anglo commentators no longer call Andy Murray (coverin’ their butts both ways in their typically sly fashion) : “The Scot”, y’know? Respect to our separate sensibilities should he succeed, but distancing themselves disparagingly should he not come up to arrogant anglo-saxon notions of superiority, and not prove himself to be a true brit in the modern yankee driven mindset where 2nd. is last.


    Empire dies slowly.

  22. che 09:27 on 27 January, 2013


    Must have missed it what has kenny shiels been saying now thats causing a stir?




    Basically, the gist of it was : yez are all mibs, and ah’m no havin’ it, right?


    Seriously, that’s what it boiled down to.



  23. Cannae see any reporting from the MSM re Sheils revelations yesterday



    One would have thought that it was at least newsworthy
