Technical review needed after Real game


The trip to the US to play Real Madrid is core to strategy for Celtic right now.  It allowed the significant North American support an easier opportunity to see the team, keeps the club’s profile high among the game movers and shakers and will have contributed valuable financial resources.

You know there’s a ‘but’ coming, don’t you.

Gary Hooper, Anthony Stokes and Daryl Murphy all picked up or aggravated strains on the trip.  The players are still stepping up their fitness regimes.  Muscles are being stressed, then rested, then stresses a little further.  Returning from two lengthy flights with a high incidence of non-contact injuries suggests we need to review how we prepare athletes for travel.

Do you like the new-look Celtic Quick News?  Some fundamental changes have engineered into the back-end which should make things more solid going forward.  More new features will come on-stream shortly.  My enormous thanks to Kev, who designed the template and everything new in the engine room.

Don’t forget, if you have an article in you for CQN Magazine email me: and let me know what you would like to write about. I’ll be able to give you some pointers. Next edition coming soon.

  2. New Site looks great Paul, however an oversight probably, there is no link to the home page at the bottom of the posts page.

  3. Shameful waste of bandwidth, just to see how my moniker looked. While I’m here, Celtic to beat Helsingborgs home and away.

    We Fear Change. It’s fine.


    Can I put in a request for being able to press one link from the home page to go to the first post, say the title of the article, and one to go to the last page, say the number of posts. It’s not an issue at home on the PC but, on 3G or an overloaded cafe wi-fi, it would reduce some frustration.

    Paul 67 –



    The layout doesn’t look the same now that Rangers are not around.

  11. Paul,



    Unfortunately, we are the make weight in the prestigious friendly games, therefore can’t dictate when we play them.



    Ideally, for us, these far flung games should be played during a mid winter break.

  12. Anybody seen Serenity? Ah would have thought with everything thats happened over the SUMMER??? that his poetic juices would have been positively flowing.

  13. What do these stupid, green-sweetie averse, huns do if they have a heart attack and find themselves surrounded by green uniforms in the Southern General?
