"AND THEY GAVE US JAMES McGRORYand ... JOHN REID"

Well, no, they didn't, but whether we like it or not he's due to take over from Brian Quinn as Chairman of the club after the next AGM.

Some people want to do something about it. Read here about the man who will be representing Celtic's interests for the foreseeable future.

Personally I've always had a low opinion of John Reid, that didn't change when I learned he was an ardent Celtic fan since on a purely statistical basis a certain proportion of even Celtic fans will be unpleasant weasels, (there was one on the pitch last night in fact). But for them also to be an unpleasant 'professional' political weasel, without the scruples that God gave them is another thing.

To me John Reid has little to commend him and am disappointed that he's now to be officially associated with the club.

Or is he?

Read the petition to find what some people want to do about it.

And in the interests of fairness I'd like to point to a valid argument as to why he is a good candidate for the post but all I can gather from the pro John Reid supporters is that we should all just accept him for what he is now and ignore his past, afterall football is big business these days and his combative style will be good for us in disputes with the SFA and UEFA.

And anyway, lets all just get on with it and politics has no place in sport. Lets just stick to the issues that matter to us Glasgow football fans then, child abuse and religious issues.

You can sign the petition here: http://www.gopetition.com/online/14473.html

SPARTAK GAME at the LONDON NO.1

Setanta have just announced that they'll be showing the Champions League 3rd Rd qualifier at 5pm on Wednesday.

We'll have it live at the London No.1 CSC.

Due to overcrowding in previous seasons, and rising costs of broadcasting games, entry to the back room is £2.00 for non-members (free for members). Membership forms will be available, £10 membership guarantees FREE entry to all live televised Celtic games all season.

The costs of broadcasting games is also a major issue and since a large chunk of the broadcasting costs are paid for by the club its only fair that those that wish to take advantage of the atmosphere at the club are willing to contribute.

And for the sake of £2.00 (in one of the cheaper pubs in London:) we think that's a fair request.

Hopefully many people will take advantage of membership at the club and guarantee FREE entry to ALL televised games and help to preserve the unique atmosphere that watching Celtic at the most established CSC in London has to offer.

Brenda O'Rourke

Sadly Brenda O'Rourke passed away last night.

She valiantly fought her illness, with the unyielding and steadfast support of Dennis and her children.

Those of us who had the absolute pleasure of meeting Brenda will know that the world has lost a gorgeous, passionate and strong woman, wife and mother.

I count myself lucky to have met her and she'll never be forgotten.

Our thoughts and support are with Dennis and the family.

Rest in Peace Brenda O'Rourke.

(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea.

"Oh no it does not move me,
Even though I've seen the movie.
I don't want to check your pulse,
I don't want nobody else.
I don't want to go to Chelsea."

Elvis Costello didn't want to go in the eighties, most Tims weren't too keen this year either, but if you've got a ticket you'll at least want to know how to get there.

Here's some handy info and links to help find your way around London.

The best way to get around the capital is by public transport, even with Red Ken's congestion charge road traffic can still be a nightmare, especially at rushhour. So if you're driving down park up at an out of town tube station and continue in from there, you won't be able to park near the ground. If you're coming in via an airport get on the tube and start your journey from there.

The London No.1 CSC is handily situated close to Euston and King's Cross Stations. We're not running a bus because we're across town from Chelsea, so give yourself about an hour to get to Chelsea if you come to visit us beforehand.

You can get directions around London using the TfL Journey Planner["I want to go..", FROM: postcode: NW1 1HB, TO: Station: Fulham Broadway], which will show you the best routes and estimate the travel time. Many of the buses around Chelsea are diverted on match days so its best to head for Fulham Broadway tube and walk to the ground from there. Fulham Broadway is on the District Line, take a train to Earls Court and change for Wimbledon bound trains.

In any event have a good time, enjoy the game and keep safe.

LONDON NO.1 CSC AGM 2006

The London No.1 CSC AGM will be held next week, Thursday, 13th July at 8pm.

Its important that all members, and prospective members, attend the AGM. Not only is it a first chance to a catch up after a long hard summer of listening to Engerland fans whinging about penalties (again), but its a chance for you to VOTE for the committee for the coming season at the London No.1.

Special thanks to the committee for their hard work last season:
Tam (Chairman)
Angus (Vice Chairman)
Liam (Treasuer & Tickets)
Louise (Sec. & Newsletter)
Mary Mc (Sec. & Celtic View)
Dennis (Social)
John (Website/email)

I believe the current committee will be standing for re-election this year after the successes of last year, though all members are eligible to stand for election for these positions if you feel you'd like to.

Membership still stands at £10.00 per season which is not bad considering all the live Celtic games available at the club. You don't have to be a member to come and watch the games of course, but someone has to pay for the subscriptions, arrange socials, and maintain the admin side of the club. Don't forget that all the committee members do all this for free so joining the club is also a way of showing support and appreciation for all their hard work.

Since a normal meeting will also take place on Thursday there'll be all the usual business, including booking tickets and arranging travel for upcoming games, including Chelsea, also announcements and news regarding upcoming events and club information.

The membership form can be found here: http://www.londonno1csc.com/membership.shtml and will also be available on the night.

See you all there.

Hail hail

John

BATTLE OF BRITAIN
Or at least 'Friendly of Britain'.

The powers that be have deemed it appropriate that Celtic's Annual London Friendly (TM) to be against those lovable money bags and English Champions, Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge. Pencilled in for Wednesday, 9th August.

Its likely to be a different experience than the rather friendlier proposals of a visit to Loftus Road or Craven Cottage, but never the less its sure to be a lively affair as usual.

As well as getting to see all of Gordon's latest signings - lets hope - its also a chance to hook up with your old friend Senhor Mourinho and his mega-bucks superstars. Who says money can't buy you trophies?

There's sure to be a good atmosphere and stay tuned for news on what the London No1 CSC has planned for the day.

NEWS UPDATE ... OCTOBER 2005.
Saturday's 'title decider' ... November meeting moved forward 24 hrs ... London No.1 CSC awayday to Hibs game ... Gerry's leaving do Fri, 25th November ...

Hi to all London Tims,

Back to proper football this week after all that international nonsense, and the title decider on Staurday (as if!). For all the London Tims that are heading up to the game the plan is to meet up in the usual haunts, The Crystal Bell and, the newly decorated, Bar67 before the game.

====================

IMPORTANT NOTICE

NOVEMBER MEETING is being moved forward 24 hours to WEDNESDAY, 9th NOVEMBER, 7PM. This is because of the CIS Cup 4th Rd game against 'you-know-who'.

So if you're not going to the match live and are planning to watch it at the London No.1 come along at 7pm (game 7.45) and have your say at the meeting. If its busy in the pub the meeting may be held upstairs so ask at the bar if you wish to attend.

So once again, the November meeting is moved to 9th November, 7pm.
(Your statutory rights are not affected).

====================

LONDON NO.1 TRIP TO HIBS GAME

Wheels are in motion for a London No.1 CSC group trip up to the Hibs game at Parkhead on the 10th December.

The plan is to group book rail travel leaving Saturday morning, returning Sunday. This needs to be booked in advance to be able to take advantage of the group booking discount that the club has so get your name down early if you're interested.

The deadline is the next meeting on Wed, 9th November, but the earlier you can let us know the better.

We already have about 6/7 names on board so contact myself, Liam or Angus to book your place or to get more info.


====================

'FAREWELL GERRY' do, 25th NOVEMBER

Longtime London No.1 CSC member Gerry McGachy is packing all his belongings into a little red hankerchief, attaching it to a stick slung over his shoulder and taking the low road next month to Greenock. As a farewell and a chance to meet up with old friends he's having a leaving do at the Cock Tavern on Friday 25th November.

Its a chance to clear your throats because a Karaoke night has been arranged and if you haven't heard Tam's rendition of Delilah then you've not heard anything.

regards,

John

SUMMER IN THE CITY
The, now well established, annual Celtic pilgrimage to the capital is part of what being a Celtic supporter is all about. This year was no different.

Meeting old, and making new friends from the Celtic community, and from further a field, sharing a few drinks, having a laugh and adding a bit of colour and atmosphere to the London streets on a hot summer's day makes for another successful day out for London Tims despite lack of excitement on the pitch.

This year we even had a new manager to welcome and the unaccustomed prospect of seeing a new bunch of players play in the Green. Two of which, 'Magic' Zurawski and Artur Boruc, might have explained the unusually high number of Polish fans in the area of Putney on Saturday afternoon.

I met a father and son from Warsaw before the match who were doing a tour of London football stadiums and had bought tickets the Fulham v. Celtic unaware of the new Polish contingent in the Celtic line-up. The father, a referee in the Polish 3rd Division, was staying diplomatically neutral since they were seated in the Fulham end but his young son, Bartak, previously a Liverpool fan, is now the proud owner of a brand new Hooped scarf and flag.

As it happened the team had a touch of the familiar, 6 of the Cup Final team were in the starting line-up though the new Bhoys all had promising if unspectacular debuts. 'Magic' showed a few good touches, and a particularly dodgy one for what can go down as possibly the 2nd worst penalty of the year. There was a lot of running from the other new Bhoys. Aliadiare was quick. Camara was quicker. Not a mean feat considering the temperature out there.

In fact it was so hot that the match day programme wasn't merely employed to find out who the young no.4 was at right back but also for some improvised air-conditioning throughout.

Unfortunately it was good for neither purpose. The no.4, Gary Irvine, remained a mystery for most in my section, but is possibly a sign of Gordon's interest in some of the existing Celtic youngsters as much as new signings.

And the heat was such that it was more akin to a leisurely game of cricket than a football match - so much so that the players even 'went off for tea' after 30 minutes!

The opinion back at the London No.1 CSC, where the heat and atmosphere were kept up throughout with a blistering set by Claymore, was that, whether or not mid-game 'tea-breaks' ever become reality,pre-season friendlies are merely a taster for the fans and always leave you thirsting for the season to begin for real.

STOP PRESS::STOP PRESS::
Tam Boylan 'unanamously' re-elected Chairman of the London No.1 CSC. His reign remains undisputed as he continues to emulate [Maggie Thatcher] Winston Churchill, one of his all time heroes, as supreme leader of the club.

In other events, Angus Robertson remains loyally at Tam's right-hand side as Vice Chairman. Robin to Tam's Batman (but without the tights).

Liam 'Gordon Brown' Higgins continues in his role of treasurer of the club. He gave an illuminating report of the ups and downs of the clubs finances. In his capable hands the club remains in a cash positive position.

Thelma and [correction] Mary and Louise have been newly appointed as secretaries of the club. Two welcome members to the committee and we wish themwell in their new and challenging roles.

John Shields continues to 'naff about' on the club computer.

Nessa and Sharon have also been newly elected to the committee to add a touch of (much needed) glamour to the club.

In these safe and capable hands the club moves onwards and upwards towards the new season with all the confidence of a Bobo Balde forward run and with the all the robust agility and finesse of John Hartson.

How to get to F'in Fulham
... and more importantly how to get back to the London No.1 social afterwards!

Even if you're from London travelling around can be a bit of a nightmare, that's even without the recent disruption.

Here's a few clues.

London No.1 CSC
Nearest tube: Euston
Nearest railway: Euston

Fulham FC
Nearest tube: Putney Bridge
Nearest railway: Putney Station

Getting there from north London, i.e. if you're getting the train to Euston or King's Cross, or a flight into Stansted, or are coming from the London No.1 CSC pre-match warm up in Euston you'll want to get on the Victoria Line.

Note: The Piccadilly and Circle Lines are shut.

Pick up the Victoria Line from Euston Station, 10 minutes walk from King's Cross, or if you're coming from Stansted get the Stansted Express and jump on the Victoria Line at Tottenham Hale.

Take the Vic Line down to either Victoria or Vauxhall. From Victoria get the District Line to Putney Bridge (you may have to change at Earl's Court and make sure you get on a Wimbledon train), or take the Vic Line to Vauxhall and get a BR train to Putney.

If you're coming back to the club for the social after the match do the same thing but in reverse.

All the info, maps etc are here: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

If you're coming/going by car/coach its fairly straight forward: Google Maps has it sorted. Don't go into Central London in your motor, you'll get lost around the one-ways. Its a nightmare, believe me.

Worst comes to the worst, get a cab. It'll probably come to about £20.00 for the trip. Not too bad if you can share it with some fellow Tims.

Most importantly, enjoy the game, enjoy the trip, and stay safe.

Website Update
The London No1 website has been improved for the new season and now has a news service for 2005-06.

This will mean that club events can be documented, events can be promote more easily and members can be more informed.

The email list is now easier to join (simply enter you're email address in the 'Join London No.1 email list' box on the left, you don't have to register with Yahoo), and the layout of the site has improved.

The goal next season, as always, is for the site to provide an introduction for the club and an up to date reference for all club events, live matches and meetings for existing members.

Its also hoped that in the new season the site will provide facilities for members to communicate with the club and and for the site to be updated with a range of articles supplied by members.

If you have any news or information that you think you'd like add to the site let me know: [email protected].

Reminder: The AGM is this Thursday, 14th July 2005. Hope to see you there. Membership form for 2005-06 are available on the site.

Hail, Hail. Here's to a good season.
