‘Punish Us?!…You Can’t Cause We Are Not Them Anymore!’

I often think that surely the whole Rangers-gate fiasco cannot possibly get any stranger, any more ridiculous or any more farcical…I’m often wrong! Today, Mr Charles Green told everyone that he and his club, who incidentally he claims to be ‘Rangers’ and who own all of the history honours and all, would not participate in […]

'I'm Not anti-Sevco…I'm Just anti-Cheating!'

I have to admit, despite not being in the least bit surprised, being very, very disappointed by the joint announcement made yesterday by the SFA, the SPL and the SFL in regard of the future of Sevco, the business formerly known to many as the football club Glasgow Rangers. You see I always expected some dodgy, under-hand ‘compromise’ […]

'Where are we now & where are we headed?'

Ok, I have an admission to make, I have been way too busy with other issues to have kept abreast of Rangers-Gate during the last week or so. That is not my admission, that is just a fact…the admission is it has been bliss! Rarely could I have been more disinterested in whats been happening on […]

'And so it begins'

And so it begins…as with every long, adventurous journey an element of initial small steps must be taken, today both my beloved Celtic and my fathers favourite club, Motherwell, received the formal acknowledgement of where these, hopefully infant, steps will happen to take place. I must say all though no tie during the precarious qualifying stages […]

'Duty-Free Pot Calling Duty-Free Kettle…'

You know that old saying “That’s the pot calling the kettle black”? To be honest its not a favourite of mine, frankly it’s one which I rarely ever use on account of it’s idiocy. Anyway rather than me explain its meaning to you bhoys and ghirls, I’ve left it to Wikipedia to be so insulting of your intelligence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pot_calling_the_kettle_black […]

SNP in Secret talks with Rangers* ?

We have no way of verifying the legitimacy of this story which apparently appeared in the D*ily Rec*rd today. We where made aware of it by @stephend_1 on Twitter. The story goes as follows: Details of SNP talks Re Rangers “TOP SECRET” – DR today TALKS by the Scottish Government about crisis club Rangers have been marked “top secret”, […]

Alternative to the Champions League

By @606AlfieConn We are constantly being told by our board about their frustrations about the disparity in TV revenue between the so called bigger leagues and the smaller leagues and I believe that this could hopefully give the club access to greater TV revenues rather than forming an Atlantic league or moving toEngland.   At […]

Scottish Cup final on a Sunday. Fans not consulted AGAIN !

I’m not a happy man finding out that the SFA have decided to move the Scottish Cup final from it’s traditional Saturday to Sunday next season. The reason for this is down to a media deal the SFA and other countries signed with UEFA last year which impart garentees that the Champions League gains supremacy over all […]

A New poll on Pro IRA chants and songs

Before TCN makes any statement on yesterdays UEFA fine for ‘illicit’ chanting we would like to get a feel of how the Celtic support now feels about IRA chants at Celtic games. We are running a poll on our facebook page here http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003230886291&sk=wall If your not a member of Facebook please leave a comment on this […]

What's Strathclyde Police's Game ?

As you all know by now I’m in favour of sticking to Celtic songs at games but we’ll put that to one side just now. The news that a senior Strathclyde Police officer Eddie Smith approached UEFA delegates and made a complaint about what he classed as illicit chants at the Celtic Rennes game raises a […]
