Celtic Diary Tuesday July 19: Business As Usual

It promises to be even hotter today than it was yesterday.

 

Don’t know what it’s like around your way, but round here, it was stifling and  even the pigeons were walking.

 

There’s quite a lot of health and safety advice about, but surely just a little bit of common sense should keep everyone safe.

 

If the sun is hot, then don’t fucking touch it.

 

 

The Irish Muslim Council gave us probably the best advice…..

In fact, you can get all sorts of useful information on Twitter…..

 

 

Image

 

 

The Record , on announcing that the Ibrox side will begin and end their UCL campaign against the Belgian “cracks ” , joyfully informed their readers that the USG have a supporters group called the Union bhoys…

 

 

The Union Bhoys are named in tribute to Celtic. Members can often be seen in Celtic strips belting out the club chant, Toute ma vie je resterai un Unioniste” (I’ll be a Unionist till I die).

 

 

Dante Vanzeir, their 13 goal winger, looked terrified at the prospect of facing “rangers “…..

 

 

 

He seems confident, though so do the hordes, to be fair….

 

 

Image

 

 

 

A Record insider, when asked about the bizarre decision to talk about Celtic and their support when doing a story on the crucial..from a financial point of view….campaign, replied

 

 

We had to.  If we lose any more readers we’ll be as well just ringing what’s left with any news. ”  

 

 

With Michael Nicholson replacing their own Stewart Robertson on the SPFL board , perhaps we’ll see a little more professionalism and adherence to the rules next season. Change takes a while, and nicholson has certainly been behind a few changes at Celtic.

 

 

Maybe there is something in the wind, and maybe Scottish football is about to start to introduce a level playing field.

 

 

The new tv deal with a Japanese broadcaster, combined with world wide interest in Ange Postecoglou means that there may well be a desire behind the scenes to bring the game out of the seventeenth century.

 

We can hope, I suppose.

 

 

some papers are now touting Geln Kamara and Fashion Sakala for moves away from Ibrox, and whilst it’s not uncommon for clubs from big leagues to plunder succesful smaller clubs of their assets, this is beginning to look like a clearance sale.

 

 

It seems the ibrox board have decided to cash in now rather than wait to see if they make the lucrative group stages, which is bizarre, unless of course, they are either in deep doo doo or know they have to get their books in order.

 

 

Back at the ranch, and the names of the two players set to hitch their horses may now be out there.

 

 

First is Adrian Mooy, out of contract and a player well know to the manager because he’s Australian, if you believe the angle in the media.

 

What Mooy would really bring to the table is a wee bit of savvy, that streetwise element that is essential for any side wishing to progress in Europe, if you can’t count on the luck of the draw or just boring opponents to death and playing for a penalty kick.

 

 

He knows when to speed up a game, when to slow it down, and is useful in possession as well as determined without.

 

 

That much seems to have been overlooked, as well as a few disparaging remarks because he has been playing in China of late.

 

 

No matter how well Asian based players do when they come to Scotland, there seems to still be doubt about the ability of the one who follows.

 

Matthew Elder in the Scotsman reckons that…

 

Celtic ‘agree deal’ with French club to sign German centre-

back

Celtic have agreed a deal to sign defender Moritz Jenz from Lorient, according to reports in France.

 

Whilst another name in the frame is Levi Colwell, a youngster at Chelsea.

 

 

Dylan Reid , the St mirren youngster linked with a move last week has decided to stay in Paisley, which is unusual for any youngster from Paisley who isn’t wearing an electronic tag.

 

 

No doubt he’ll end up at Ibrox to give them another psychological victory…..

 

 

Oh For Fucks Sake GIFs | Tenor

 

 

 

Celtic Park was the venue for the annual open training day yesterday, with fans getting a chance to watch their idols beong put through the paces by the coaches.

 

In previous seasons, that would have been followed by everyone heading to the Brazenhead , players included for a few rebel tunes and some synchronized coughing, but as we have seen, things have changed…..even Ange himself took his jumper off and got involved.

 

 

 

 

 

which leads us to the all dancing all singing caption competition…..

If we’re pinning our European progression hopes on a 31yo, who hasn’t played for 6 months and little over 2 years then, I think, I can see a small flaw in the cunning plan.

We’ve not signed a new first team player.

Jota & Cameron were already here.

Benny to compete with Bain for backup keeper.

Ben to compete with Taylor for LB.

Mooy to fill-in for others in MF as and when.

It might be that consolidation was the name of the game this year but its still underwhelming given the vast step up in quality to CL.

I see we’ve added a young German CB on loan with an option to buy after a year. That makes sense as we MUST have cover there and a loan with an option gives us time to see what he can do. I’m thinking maybe Ange has a lot more idea than I do so it’s maybe worth sitting back and watching how this pans out.
Look at last season and how that panned out and it would’ve been a treble probably but Madden stepped in to offer that shower some silverware. Cheating twat! Thankfully that’s at least one less as he’s somehow got a gig in England.

It could be but from what I’ve heard he’s a good passer but slow and can’t tackle a fish supper.

A useful no/low-cost addition but not taking us to the next level.

I remember Mooy well when he turned out for the Aussies during the Word Cup in Russia 4 years ago when a couple of us (especially me admittedly) were raving about him on here. He was quite simply a joy to watch with his superb ball-playing skills and tenacity as he outshone Tom Rogic by a mile and caused serious problems to top class opposition defences. Whether or not he can ever raise his game to that level again is another question but with Ange on the case, who knows. Stranger things have happened. Picking up Moritz Jenz (a solid-looking CB from Ligue 1) on a year’s loan with an option to buy may also turn out to be an astute piece of business.

what in the CL? good place to learn right enough. doesnt take a lot of knowledge to see this guy is a million miles away from the CL. more than you have by the look. Taylor it is then and hes no good enough neither. keep your comments for those that agree with you. thats the idea.

Your reply slated Bernabei did it not? Just as you pilloried Giakoumakis. Let the manager work on the lad and see where it goes. Bolingoli was simply a bomb scare who either couldn’t or wouldn’t fall in line what the manager was wanting from him, that’s why he was frozen out early doors.

Caption: Saint Palomious of Honshu was a 16th century evangelist credited with spreading Christianity among the natives of the Japanese island. Born in East Ayrshire, the oldest son of a famously inept map reader who thought Cumnock was Croy he decided that post-reformation Catholic life in his native village was worth giving up for a certain death posting to Japan. His life was characterised by hardship as the infamous warring tribe of the Honshu Maeda had a culinary tradition of a sharing dish of flash-fried missionary’s testicles cooked in a hot sauce called ‘wan nad noodles.’ However Palomious’ great gift was natural pace and his miraculous capture and, at full pelt, castration of a sprinting Tsushima leopard simultaneously won him a god-like status with the natives while inventing a convenient alternative noodle recipe. The patron saint of sprinters the prayer to St Palomious “Palomious of Honshu send the boy a sand shoe” (note this prayer is best recited in an East Ayrshire accent),is a well known invocation of sporting coaches when their charge is deceptively slow. Here, on the return of Christopher Julien from an unsuccessful trip to Lourdes we can see Ange Postecoglue demonstrating his devotion to Palomious.
