20 days to Midtjylland, a Halloween movie awaits


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.

  1. I am glad that Griff is staying. IMO he is a top player and, importantly, a scorer of goals.

    `buckle down` instead of `downing Buckie` would be astep in the right direction !



    I don`t blame Kafflik schools for that attempt at humour…..I blame Big Jimmy !


    Beautiful day in Arbroath so


    Cheerio for now.

    Sorry to burst your bubble ghuys but NTL did not go bust.



    They rebranded as Virgin Media – they paid a stipend to Richard Branston to use the name and carried on regardless.



    Rangers did go bust, they did not rebrand but carried on regardless.



    Hail Hail

  4. That Dom is a right smarmy CEO with all these platitudes to season ticket renewers.

  5. An excellent communication from Dom Mckay.



    Let’s put last seasons debacle behind us and concentrate on the future. I am glad the future includes Leigh Griffiths. He can pay us back in the best possible fashion by being the goal scoring machine we know he can be.


    It would also be churlish in the extreme not to acknowledge Peter Lawwells achievements.



    HH to all. The journey begins.

    In other words, show us the money.
