Quantcast

Ajer on-board as strategy rolls forward

403

Norwegian football journos I speak to all praise Kristoffer Ajer (17) in the highest terms. The 6’5” midfielder became the youngest captain in Norwegian topflight history when he wore the armband of Start as a 16-year-old last April. He’s a strong and mature individual, apparently.

Despite having made only 36 career starts, Celtic have watched him repeatedly, on top of the loan period he spent at Lennoxtown last month, so they know the player they are getting. The information I hear of him is all positive, but he’ll be learning the game for years, and for the remainder of the year he’ll learn what it’s like to be a Celtic player, something he’ll have little inclination of at the moment.

I like this strategy of recruiting and deploying talent of this age, a policy which has been missing for around 40 years, and has contributed to a similar period of underachievement in producing prodigious talent. It feels right for us.

Welcome to Celtic, Kristoffer.

    I think i will be aiming a few strongly worded communications to those responsible for the unrealistic amount of penalties awarded to sevco.

     

    Shockingly blatant.

    Be interesting to see their total penalties from the start of their short existence, in comparison to other teams.

     

    Im no math genius…but those stats are stinkingly suspicious.

    Scientifically that makes sense. It would be around that age that your balls drop.

     

     

    I really couldn’t imagine them dragging along the ground. Ouch!

  6. It’s about time our club started naming and shaming the sternographers who ask these loaded questions, also turn the cameras on them, they hate the limelight preferring to work in the shadows. H H Hebcelt

  7. I seem to recall that in their first league game as sevco twas up in the Blue Toon, the referee ably assisted them that day, without his help, I very much doubt they would have managed the draw, another I recall was when Berwick rangers were denied a last minute winner, it was a good goal, but these things even themselfs out, the ref prob stopped Berwick from getting sacked mind you.

     

    And all the way through they have had and needed help, it’s scotland and scotland are the huns.

    Shameful, disgraceful, yes – Shocking, NO!

     

     

    It is what has come to be expected. Infact, it is so in your face nowadays that you could be forgiven for believeing that they were goading us all.

     

     

    They don’t even try to hide it anymore as they have become so accustomed to the bias & cheating that, were they to Referee that game in a fair & even manner that they would feel as they were cheating themselves

    Its despicable.

     

    Thems dont know the meaning of sporting integrity.

     

    And yet nothing is said or done to rectify it.

     

    And it is blatant cheating….from what i can see, statistically suspect if not impossible.

     

    Silence in the face of this routine cheating, with no response from the PLC, mystifies me.

     

    Its beyond absurdity.

    There’s a lot of balls talked on CQN today.

     

    When it comes to “Glasgow Rangers in the championship getting a lot of penalties same as it ever was”, I suggest someone write a strongly worded letter to the SFA asking for an explanation. can someone say coconuts? Bounty?

    I read somewhere years ago that the huns were awarded more penalties than Celtic in 66-67, and that the typical RFC1872 XI of that season won more caps than Stein’s all conquering record breakers. No surprise there.
