Quantcast

Anya, Fletcher, fantasy

543

“Celtic suffer double transfer blow as they are priced out of moves for Scotland duo Steven Fletcher and Ikechi Anya.”  Fantasy stuff from a guy at the Record who was chased from Celtic Park a long time ago and hasn’t been allowed back since.

No offence to Ikechi, but if Peter Lawwell sanctioned the payment of £4m to a guy who is in and out the Watford team he’d be the next one chased out of Celtic Park.  He is categorically not a person of interest.

They’ve also got the story on Steven Fletcher wrong.  Sunderland are keen on Virgil van Dijk and know Celtic are looking for a striker.  The English club were up for using Fletcher as a make-weight but we confirmed here two weeks ago this scenario was dead before it got off the ground.  Celtic didn’t even ask to speak to Fletcher, never mind inquire about his wage demands.  Celtic need Virgil for the qualifiers and need a striker for the qualifiers.  The deal was not contemplated at any wage level, Sunderland knew this from the off.

Sunderland paid £12m for Fletcher and are coughing up £48k per week wages, not the £60k reported this morning.  Getting the wages figure right is easy, just ask someone who was involved, and it wouldn’t change the parsimonious Celtic agenda.  The fact that Fletcher’s wage figure is wrong tells you the quality of the source.  He’s a good enough player but he’s a totem of so much that’s wrong in English football.

Today’s ‘news’ is as old as I am: ‘Rangers’ ‘immediately stepped in with a bid which has been accepted’, Celtic are ‘priced out of moves’.  It’s what it looks like, the fantasy of a man who’s banned from Celtic Park.

God help this poor Irish lad if he makes it through his medical, the weight of expectation will be heavy on his shoulders soon enough.  I seriously didn’t get where they were coming from with that ‘Fear no Foe’ business, b.t.w.  The world’s changed so much.

  1. Aye well said Paul, another piece of ‘journalism’ by the MSM

     

     

    We do need a striker though before late qualifiers, wonder who the guy will be

    Gotta love CQN – when there’s no football to argue about us belligerents find the Grexit to waffle on about! What next?! :-)

    post of the day,SO FAR :)))))

     

    Ps

     

    I think the 1st we will hear of any Celtic signings will be a leak on twitter (when deal is done) or from our official pages, NOT in a Scottish anti Celtic rag.

  3. GlassTwoThirdsFull on

    Well said, Paul. Not surprised (and quite pleased!) that we are not interested in either of these players.

     

    Don’t think either are Ronny-types. Don’t think Hooper is either, good as he was for us previously.

  4. So Shug thankfully, is still banned from Paradise.

     

     

    His sources are as useful as a dose of herpes.

     

     

    And his reputation for being an absolute incompetent grows.

     

     

    Not a bad day all round then.

     

     

    FHH

  5. Have to agree with leftclicktic with regards to our signings. In fact, I would go as far as to say I don’t care if the first I hear of any is when the new Bhoy is putting pen to paper at Celtic Park. And I still hope it’s Garry Hooper. Mind you, the ole Lone Ranger and his pal, Tonto, were well able to win a lot of showdowns with the baddies. Still, even those two would have had to go some to beat ole Champion, the wonder horse.

    Re your questions on the last thread, yes I have had a mortgage. But I don’t share your belief that the Governor of the Bank of England will be more likely to act in the interests of working people than a Tory (or New Labour) Chancellor.

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

     

    It’s not in the interests of the Governor of the Bank of England to have wildly fluctuating interest rates, ditto homeowners (working people generally).

     

     

    Now that I own my house however, I can see the merit in high interest rates.

    When history is written, Gordon Brown (and Alistair Darling) will claim a podium place for being the right men, in the right place, at the right time

     

     

    utter utter utter utter guff.and i can not say this enough.guff.

     

     

    The labour partys city policy was what?

     

     

    Deregulation? any parameters,any constraints on the liberalisation of capital markets?

     

     

    The credit boom,ticking out over £1 trillion pounds of our wealth,

     

     

    The labour party may try and blame a bigbad citytrader/banker for those dastardly goings on,alas only after they set up the legal framework for those chaps to work in.

     

    IT FAILED AS IT WAS NON EXISTENT.

     

     

    Why was a so called socialist government setting up the offshore accounting/banking industry?

     

     

    Like murray is to blame for the cheats

     

    i wish to christ the fake labour party would take responsibility for a min 10 years of tories and it looks longer.

     

    due to its mishandling of economic policy

    The Bank of England don’t have a free rein on interest rates, they work to requirements laid down by the government.

    Good post about Gordon Brown. He was-and is-the whipping boy for the 2008 crash. Unfairly,IMO. His many successes are ignored,his failures highlighted.

     

     

    But I’m afraid you of all people should not be using the word panegyric. As explained,it should be on your banned list(!)

    Only reason I know what that means is that Panegyric is the record label that is reissuing the YES back catalogue.

  12. I’m with you Paul…..far better value to be had than Anya and Fletcher.

     

     

    I wonder who are striking targets are? The two (mentioned so far) that I thought looked most interesting are Jonathas and Sergio Araujo.

  13. It seems Anya hasn’t been offered a new contract by Watford. Hence his talk about being open to a move to Celtic.

  14. Don’t want Hooper back, good first time round but he’s had his time, Fletcher not worth the wages and doesn’t score enough goals. Vossen would be a great signing if we could pull that one off.

     

    Anya will be available at the end of the transfer window for a lot less that Watford’s current valuation.

  15. mullet and co 2 on

    I like Anya but am sure there’s a 21 year old winger from further afield that could cost less and be sold for more.

    Keevins no longer works for the DR. Keith “off the radar” Jackson, a man much given to hyperbole wrote the offending fiction.
