Few things delight you and me as much as reading, discussing, or writing about Celtic signing targets. Mario this, George, that, Piero or Ko the next thing make the summer nights seem even brighter. Celtic, it seems, have great plans, but as one of my early bosses once told me, if you don’t achieve some early progress, you will not be around to see those great plans come to fruition.
We are 20 days away from facing Midtjylland in Champions League qualification. New signings from outside the UK are likely to have to isolate for around half of that time. I know what you’re thinking, Ange Postecoglou is unbelievably brilliant and can transform a sow’s ear into domestic and European success.
He may have to. Even if a goalkeeper, right back and central half arrive this afternoon, they do not have sufficient time to blend into a cohesive defensive unit. Try to imagine our much-needed corner kick defensive practice on Zoom. Or we could always just continue with things from last season….
We have seen the summer honeymoon movie before. It often ends with an unseasonably-early Halloween film in August.
