Weeoscar4life Glasgow quiz night

893

The good people running the weeoscar4life campaign have been in touch and asked me to pass on information regarding the appeal and forthcoming quiz night in Glasgow later this month:

“As many of you will be aware the weeoscar4life campaign team have recently been involved in raising the profile of a wee 3 year old boy from Belfast called Oscar. Many of you have kindly supported this initiative by purchasing CQN badges and wee Oscar wristbands and taking part in the “Small Change for US, Big Change for Oscar campaign”, with the money raised all going towards getting Oscar the treatment that he so desperately needs.

The next event that we have organised to help raise the £250,000 required for Oscar’s treatment is a quiz night. This will take place on the 29th September in The Phoenix (Previously Eastenders) on the Gallowgate with a 7pm start.

The quiz will be made up of a variety of questions, 50% Celtic related and 50% general knowledge. There will be raffle prizes and we also hope to have some live music after the quiz has finished.

Tickets are priced at £5 and you can buy as many as you wish for friends and family so long as they are over 18. Don’t worry if you aren’t able to make up a team of 4/5 as we will arrange you into teams before the event. We hope to be able to offer a ‘print at home’ ticket service so that you would be able to simply bring your tickets on the night.

Until then if you can contact us at weeoscar4life@gmail.com then Wecan begin to allocate spaces to those who have expressed an interest.

Thank you once again for your continued support.”

It is sure to be a fantastic night so please book early.

You can continue to read CQN Magazine FOR FREE, or can subscribe for £10 or £20 and our sponsor, Executive Shaving, who offer an enormous range of grooming products, are offering readers a £20 voucher for all £30 CQN Magazine subscribers.

    @STVGrant Are STV sending a TV crew down to Celtic Park to film the queues?

    @RhebelRhebel @STVGrant I would also be asking @SkySportsNews the very same question. They were quick enough to cover the queue at Ibrox

  2. sixtaeseven: Supporting the Finest Team in Scotland on

    I remember big Jock being quizzed by a hack at the start of season 67/68 on the eve of the first “Glasgow Derby” of the season (league cup game). It went something like:

     

     

    “So, Jock, apprehensive about the game tomorrow at Ibrox?”

     

     

    “Listen. Recently we have played Inter Milan in the European Cup final in Lisbon and beaten them.

     

    We have also been to the Bernabeu stadium and beaten Real Madrid.

     

    Eh, I don’t think WE should be apprehensive about tomorrow.”

     

     

    The Big Man was class!!!

    Former Germany international Andreas Hinkel has announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 30.

     

     

     

    Hinkel, who won 21 caps between 2003 and 2009, played for Freiburg last season having previously spent three seasons at Celtic, winning the Scottish Premier League title and two cups during his time at Parkhead

     

     

    The full-back, having started his professional career with Stuttgart, also spent two years with Sevilla in Spain and was part of the squad that won the 2007 UEFA Cup as well as the Copa del Rey, Spanish Supercopa and UEFA Super Cup.

     

     

    Hinkel announced his decision to hang up his boots on his blog while also confirming his intention to stay in football in some capacity in the future.

     

     

    He said: “There’s something important I need to tell you. I decided to end my career as football pro. It was not a snap decision, but a step that has been planned for some time. I’ve even been busy with my new career for a few weeks already.

     

     

    “I know many may think that 30 is no age to quit. But in my case I have a different opinion. I played football at a very high level for 12 years – 12 wonderful intensive years with amazing experiences, first class clubs and overwhelming supporters.

     

     

    “Of course, I had opportunities to carry on. There were a lot of offers in recent months, especially from abroad. But together with my family I decided that this would not have been the right thing for us anymore. I have two kids – and no desire to sign a contract somewhere just to prolong my career for a little while. That’s not my way.”

     

     

    Regarding his future plans, Hinkel added: “I am thrilled to begin a new chapter in my life and full of energy to start it. It goes without saying that this chapter will also be in football, this is the best sport in the world.

     

     

    “I have several ideas, but before I can start to implement them, I want to improve my skills and knowledge in all respective areas. Right now I’m working to get a coaching licence

  4. re the 66 SCF

     

    I attended both games .My recollection was that in the first game we pummelled the Huns and were desperately unlucky not to win by a 4 or 5 but it was one those days when they just wouldnt go in. The replay was a much more even game and the Huns scored a bit of a flukey goal with a 40 yard daisycutter from Kai Johansen with Simpson somewhat at fault. I also recall the bitter disappointment of that defeat. Little did I know what lay ahead. It would be 4 years before the Huns would win another trophy the League Cup in 1970, a further 9 years in the league and 7 before the would win the SC again.

  6. I was sitting reading through today’s posts & suddenly thought of one particular poster whose submissions I always enjoyed, but have not been aware of recently. He was the good face of our suffering neighbours, Edward Ursus.

     

    I think CQN is a poorer place without this decent & knowledgeable guy.

    Gollum falls into the same category as that other referee who made his daily bread from religion.

     

     

    Mike McCurry.

     

     

    Either a cheat/incompetent,or dishonest.

     

     

    If the former,give up the Saturday job;if the latter,give up the day job.

     

     

    Cos it really is either/or…

  8. KK

     

     

    When I first started reading these pages and the responses to Edward, they were always good natured, amusing and respectful. I think that this was because many realised that he was a Rangers’ supporter and not a hun.

     

     

    Sadly, the last few times that he’s ventured on to CQN he has been treated shabbily, to say the least, by one or two on here.

     

     

    I’m not surprised that his absences will be longer than before. A real shame.

    “Chas Green Esq has offered £1M to any hillbilly who can knock ole Philvis off the podium podium.”

     

     

    I thought he was offering it to any bhun who managed not to get cross in a bar….!?

  11. BMCUWP

     

     

    MCCurry was a hun cheat …simple

     

     

    Collum is a Dallas sycophant , doing what he knows he has to to further his career…no integrity and little ability

  12. BMCUW

     

     

    Agreed: a cheat or a chump.

     

     

    I have him as the latter: probably good enough for SFL football, but nothing more.

     

     

    His one distinguishing quality seems to be an ability to stay calm when all hell is about to break out around him.

     

     

    Perhaps that (and his Token Tim status) is what has propelled him into the SFA’s coterie of SPL-grade officials …

  13. Big Jock walked into Celtic Park as manager on my 21st. birthday.

     

     

    Pressies don’t come any better than that.

     

     

    Big Yogi carried the can for the ’66 Cup Final replay defeat.

     

     

    We hammered them during the game, but couldn’t get the ball in the net.

     

     

    Late on, Johannson ran on to a ball, whilst John stood looking at him and planted an unsaveabe shot into the not.

     

     

    Not sure if the Big Man fully trusted Yogi after that.

     

     

    A story going at the time was that after the game, Jock called Yogi and Jinky together and got them to show their legs.

     

     

    After checking Jinky, he said to Yogi, “now, show us your bruises”.

    Seconded.

     

     

    Unfortunately the last few times he was on probaly,erm,put him off.

     

     

    Sadly,he got pelters,and he certainly deserved better!

  15. jude2005 is Neil Lennon \o/ on

    I recall a while back Levein was being touted as the new Celtic manager b4 Neil got the job. Phew that was close!!

  16. Charles Green has offered ‘Bounce’ Bangura one million krona for each goal he scores during his loan spell at AIK.

    PF AYR

     

     

    I totally concur.

     

     

    In which case,McCurry did the right thing by wrapping both his jobs.

     

     

    Sadly,since-as you point out-he is totally without integrity,so we are stuck with him.

     

     

    And so are the kids……….

  18. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    ole Johnny- has ole Mo gone back to Rotor Volvograd?

     

     

    No one tells me anything.

     

     

    I shall miss his eager running and explosive shooting.

  19. Ten Men Won The League/Son of Dan-I’m sure that assault from Lafferty had a hand in Andy hanging his boots up.A fine player,good luck to him.

  20. Best of luck to Andy Murray

     

     

    His achievement of reaching successive Grand Slam finals is no small feat.

     

     

    He is up against a top performer though. I hope Andy has the edge in a five set thriller tonight. If he wins one Grand Slam he will win many more.

  21. Was back online checking CL Packages,straight through no delay,apologies if reading this in the queue at CP :{

  22. hamiltontim & BMCUW.

     

     

    Thanks.

     

    I was not aware ot that.

     

    He did not deserve it.

     

    Shame on those responsible for abusing a guy who never offered any insult.

     

     

    Haste Ye Back, Ed.

    TIM TANIUM

     

     

    I honestly hope he wins in straight sets-to love!

     

     

    My fingernails still hivnae recovered from The Olympics!

  24. In Scotland today 2012 there is a book so shocking that thousands of people are trying to get it banned, the books subject matter is so disgraceful that it can’t be sold from a display stand and in most Glasgow book shops it’s sold under the counter, the author has had many death threats to himself and his family…

     

     

    That book is called Downfall and it’s subject is the death of a football team, Rangers FC. Tell me again why that club is worth saving, it’s seems to me their support has moved to a new level of stupidity.

     

     

    A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.

     

    “Salman Rushdie”

  25. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    Ole Johnny- on matters tonsorial.

     

     

    Before I purchase any ‘Executive Shaving ‘paraphernalia can you confirm it is used by our very own hirsute Hellenic hero, the #9 Enigma?

    Again,seconded.

     

     

    I might take a wander up to The Crown in Dreghorn when I’m back next month.

     

     

    Get him told-if you don’t go back on CQN,I’ll be back!
