Your supporter groups, your club, your streets


The umbrella group, Fans Against Criminalisation, issued a statement yesterday (kindly published here by Joe O’Rourke on the Association site) which details a number of events in response to Saturday’s policing on Gallowgate, and the resulting response from the SNP government.  Witnesses are invited to give evidence on Saturday (23rd March), with three protests planned next month.

To the relief of all, I’m sure, the statement also records that issues surrounding meetings two organisations had with the Club in November have been resolved.

Our Club and supporters groups are led by the kind of people you would trust with your most precious valuables, as many of us do.  They each strive in new and innovative ways to herd cats in the right direction, with remarkable success.  The tasks, carried out by hundreds of Celtic fans, of running buses, chasing tickets and navigating the impossible political challenges, is often thankless.  I know a few who wonder why they bother.

They bother because they care.  The office-bearers dedicate even more time looking after the common interests.  There are more Celtic heroes than those who wear the hoops.

I hear Fifa president, Sepp Blatter, has appointed Jeffrey Webb, currently head of CONCACAF, as chief of a newly created Fifa body to fight racism in football.  Mr Webb is a director of one of the largest banks in the Cayman Islands, known for its…. unique standards of propriety.  Nice.

Quick word for Tommy in Glasgow…. brilliant!

    How’s the post-birthday blues?



    AKA hangoverfaehell…

    Why don’t you try going for a pint with BT, its an experience. The blog is great for debate, meeting with CQNers is bizarre, even the grumpiest bassas on the blog turn out to be great guys in my experience. Make friends everywhere, is that not the Celtic way?





    Seem to be agreeing with your posts on the bill, more and more….worrying!




  3. 50 shades of green on

    o well long weekend looks like the wee mans fitbae will be off on sat morn ( never mind summer starts next weekend yippee).



    and also its a bloody international week to boot.



    ach well good luck to WGS tonight against the dragons of wales,good couple of results might set scotland up for a decent Euros run with a decent manager for a change.

    Wherefore art thou, BDO ………????

  6. Kikinthenakas,


    I would if I could, however responsibilities and finances dictate otherwise.


    I suspect that BTs post was more of an attempt to defuse the situation, which should have worked.


    Anyway, I’ve already said too much on the subject, I’m sure Philbhoy is big enough to speak for himself without anyone putting words in his mouth.

    WEEOCAR4LIFE is putting up for auction a very fine bespoke whisky.



    I can recommend it,having had a bottle of it from ACGR-good man,that!



    60% alcohol,nae poof juice here,VOGUEPUNTER………

  11. Just had a look at the league table and there does appear to be a need for an introduction of a handicap system, in my opinion the older bloggers like T4 are at a distinct disadvantage, if not a handicap system perhaps a CQN 2 where the competition would be of an even standard?

  12. Lads,



    Southwell is the last man standing… so take your picks from that meeting !



    I’ll go with Frontier Fighter (3.10 Southwell)



    Cheers, fleagle1888

  13. Was tempted to stick with last weeks winner flow chart,

    Bottle no 1 of 251



    A very special prize in aid of a very special wee bhoy
