Taxpayers do not sponsor lazy gossips


I know what you were thinking; Zenden, like Ljungberg, but older.  We need experience in the squad but with Commons, Ledley, Samaras and McCourt all able to stake a claim for the left midfield position this is the last place we need to bring in a 35-year-old.  Best of luck to the player but I’m pleased he has left Glasgow.

Today’s Sun report that a senior policeman witnessed a crime being committed but instead of doing what he is paid to do, he reported the incident to Uefa.  You have to wonder about the veracity of the crime.  The officer will do well to explain his actions if they amount to anything more than a few lines in a newspaper.

We are all partisan in this city but Justice is blind to such emotions and taxpayers (that’s you and me) do not sponsor lazy gossips.

  1. Who decided Zenden wouldn’t be offered a contract if the player said he was told “see you on Monday” by the manager?

  2. Paul,



    I’m more worried If Bolo was indeed told by Neil “see you Monday”


    Player probably would say that though….



    Illegal Songs, Nothing to do with Celtic


    Sectarian Songs, Nothing to do with Celtic.


    Songs of Hate? Every Football Club in the land can be in bother for this…(allegedly)


    Laptop Loyal in even up attempts…..Laughable.

  3. Paul67



    Why did this nugget not approach anyone at the League Cup Final last season?



    I was at the game and I did not hear one song were I thought it could be reported.



    Everyone better start waking up to the fact this country, from the First Minister right down to PC Plod is hell bent on criminalising the act of supporting Celtic. HH

  4. Zenden a trial for a 35 year old attacking left midfielder






    Perplexed by many of the decisions taken in the footballing side of the club

    Well bhoys what can I say. Popped into the St Enoch Centre to put this wee post of thanks on.


    Thank you all for the magic turnout las night, it was a real pleasure to meet you all and put faces to the names.


    I derive a great deal of pleasure from this site (Thank-you Paul) and can only say what a fine bunch of human beings you are.


    This site is an important link to me in all things Celtic but I also feel blessed to have made so many friends and value and respect this gift.


    I had to ring the Guinness out my socks this morning and was also aware that I was intoxicating the pretty young lady who carried out the check-up on my eyes this morning. Mrs G is flying over this afternoon and I am picking her up at the airport later.


    What a fine bunch of guys you are – thanks again.

    don’t believe what the sun says but there was a direct quote from the player

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




    So sorry mate!



    Thoughts and prayers with you and yours and of course your Mum.




  9. For the Belfast and Port bhoys who knew Joe O’Neil who passed away recently, there was a memorial mass at the Holy Family in Port Glasgow this morning, I’m told it was stowed to the rafters, simultaneously a friend of Joe O’Neils said a mass in Rome for him this morning.



    RIP Joe O’Neil




  10. TET and Lennon..




    Apologies if my brush stroke was too wide and dubbed you with paint you didn’t deserve but ……



    The people who govern were elected by the people including me and thousands of other Celtic Supporters. We believe in a future that rewards the struggles of the past, we believe in the principle of ‘reaping our own harvest and ringing our own till’. We have clowns who for their own selfish purposes cling to the coattails of that principle. They cannot hang on forever.



    I wouldn’t want my next door neighbour telling me how to raise my family and I wouldn’t allow them to cross my lintel and insult me and my kin.



    I am of Irish stock, a republican and a socialist by nature and upbringing. When Ireland starved my forebears to the point of extinction we were given a home, work and life in Scotland. Good times, bad times, sectarianism, hatred? Yes we went through all of those but we the point is we came through and we did it because of our own strength allied to the essential humanity and love that exists in the heart of every man and woman in this country.



    Ireland treated us as pariahs as they piled the potatoes high at Dun Laoghaire and loaded them on to boats heading for the high tables in England.



    I am privileged to have been raised in the spirit of the gall oglach as part of the Gaeltachd. I take great comfort from the lessons that were taught me by men and women who knew the essential comradeship the is documented in the Annals of Connacht of the rejoicing when Robert Bruce crossed the waters to join with his brother Edward – the King of Ireland – in the common cause ‘to expel Gaill (the English) from Ireland’.



    Irony as I said and ‘If you know the history’ indeed. And I think it is a shite piece of legislation as well



    Right off to meet Kit



    Hail hail

    As the player is back in Holland, the sun probably picked up the report, as many have done, from the dutch media. Whoever reported the quote the question remains the same, if the manager said “see you Monday”, who decided to terminate any interest in him?

  12. James Forrest is Lennon on

    Can’t help thinking this is another day when our board has slipped out of answering difficult questions.



    The manager liked this guy. And again, he’s not been offered a deal. The board of directors is peeing all over our manager. When is HE going to have the brass ones to stand up to them and start fighting his corner? Christ, it’s HIS JOB that’s on the line … and before anyone starts, I know Zenden is 35/36, but if the manager rated him, and wanted him, who else’s decision matters?



    Another day starts with me being cheesed off with these people.



    Yet there’s no doubt, none at all, that the Story of the Day is this garbage with the police officer. Today is one of those days when I seriously want to think about leaving the UK entirely and pitching my tent elsewhere, and that’s not hyperbole or exaggeration. To be frank, I don’t want to live here anymore. I look at the behaviour of Christine Grahame, of laws being made by a bigot, to restrict free speech. To so-called nationalists opposing expressions of nationalism. To anti-Catholic and anti-Irish hatred on the rise, to a legal system that barely functions in light of it all and to a press which hates us as much as any other part of this debased land.



    I look at poppy facism. At “Britishness tests” when the first suicide bombers in the history of the UK were born, bred, educated and lived right here at the time and would have passed those tests easily. I look at a Westminster Tory government slicing away the safety net a strap at a time, at a Labour Party too busy obsessing about its leader to realise it has one – and where some are touting Yvette Cooper as the next leader God help us, for want of a Blairite – and where more people vote on reality TV shows than in general elections and sometimes get the two confused hence Nick Clegg as deputy PM, the ultimate triumph of mediocrity.



    I ask myself; what possible benefit is there in remaining here? My girlfriend, who has a job and wouldn’t leave? Am I disheartened enough to tell her I’m off anyway? I have a job I can do from a desk anywhere on the planet, and if I fancied doing it from the heart of the Congo then I certainly could provided I could find a DSL line, and I ponder the issue and I wonder if maybe it’s not time to start thinking about it.



    I no longer want to be here. I despise the land in which I was born. I look at a history rooted in deep seated anti-Catholic sentiment, at a country which won two World War’s and will never cease reminding the world that it did (and at the same time forgets that they only did so because they had, on their side, the two greatest powers of the age, one of which sacrificed 20,000,000 of its citizens and yet never commemorates the affair by having celebrities stick a bit of paper in their lapel.) I look at an arrogant political class which has long forgotten its purpose and an inert, lazy population too busy worrying about what’s on the telly to wake up and smell the napalm.



    Yes, today hasn’t started well.

  13. From previous thread:






    Guinness is fine had a couple last night with Bundoran Bhoy and Paddy Gallagher.






    Sannabhoy was refused entry to O’Neills a couple of weeks ago for wearing a Kano Foundation T-Shirt, I was there before we met you at Sharkeys.



    Keep the Faith!



    Hail Hail!

  14. Silver City Neil Lennon on

    Continuing with the theme of our board not acting as the fans would expect…


    If UEFA decide to take this report without question and charge us with the “offence”, Celtic would have to appeal to avoid any punishment. You might wonder why Celtic would fail to do so take the hit. It’s because we are the antithesis of the team on the other side of the city. They see themselves making money from the insular views of their fans. We see ourselves making money by having the widest possible appeal to fans, sponsors, other leagues in which we might be forced to seek refuge. If it is made obvious to Celtic fans that those using Celtic to forward their political views are doing real damage to the club, self policing or tolerance of heavy handed policing will take care of the problem.

    Kayal33 There are lots of ifs and buts in football could it have been Zenden was in a group of players chatting when Lennie said see you on Monday to the group but not to one individual player? I think we are to quick to pick up the rubbish news papers print about Celtic as they try to put us down at every turn when was the last time you saw an article in a news paper giving Celtic any praise?However the fact of the matter is we are not signing him and I for one am glad of that.H.H.

    Cheers mate and thanks again, I intend to call in to the Shammy on Thursday night, looking forward to meeting another fine CQN man.

  19. No need to freshen up the squad. Have we not turned the corner ? The current squad should be good enough to win the league by 5 points should the Hun receive the minimum punishment of a 10 point deduction for administration

  20. Lennon n Mc....Mjallby on




    Well I hope because Ireland apparently stored potatoes away from its starving people that that makes those of us proud of Celtics and our own grandfathers roots that we somehow do not understand Irish history rendering us plastic paddies.



    Enjoy your day anyway.




  21. Kitalba, I’m verry sorry to hear about you’re mother, may she rest in peace.



    My thought and prayers are for you’re mum, you and the family over this sad time.



    She is Gone



    You can shed tears that she is gone


    Or you can smile because she has lived


    You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back


    Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left


    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her


    Or you can be full of the love that you shared


    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday


    Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday


    You can remember her and only that she is gone


    Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on


    You can cry and close your mind,


    be empty and turn your back


    Or you can do what she would want:


    smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
