Brozek in Glasgow chess game. Check.


Two years ago I had a memorable journey from one end of Poland to the other, mostly in silent prayer that our man from Poland would slow down, to check out a few footballers, including Wisla Krakow striker, Pawel Brozek, who obliged with a goal.

Pawel has played mostly as a lone striker, he can hold the ball up and bring others into the game.  He’s not a particularly tricky player but he has good positional sense inside the box.  His move to Trabzonspor last year hasn’t worked out well as he has played back up to scoring sensation, Burak Yilmaz, who is averaging better than a goal per game in the league this season.  Brozek’s record at Wisla was comparable to Maciej Zurawski, who he replaced as top striker in the league.

The Polish CQN brigade told me Celtic should move for Pawel and his twin brother before Trabzonspor signed them.  When news leaked that Pawel was a target to replace ex-Rangers player (too soon?) Nikica Jelavic our man in Poland suggested he would pick up a lot of points for Rangers in the SPL.

If he comes to Celtic on a six month loan both parties will have plenty of opportunity to figure out if there is long term fit.  In the meantime, should Pawel arrive we have someone to put pressure on Gary Hooper and Anthony Stokes and the Cheeky Chappie will have to consider his next move (again, too soon?).

On the subject of Jelavic….  Remember in August 2010 when we were told he “effectively went on strike” to engineer his escape from Rapid Vienna after the player declared he wasn’t able to face Aston Villa?  I hear he’s unable to play against Hibs this afternoon.

    Bottleneck blues – without it we would know nothing of the Brass neck blues or indeed the derivitive Red neck blues – although the Red Neck Shuffle with its pentatonic 17 fret riff is possibly perfect…

    People who abuse Coricidin are referred to as ” Skittleheads ” in the good ole Deep South.



    Cult American music writer Richard Meltzer [ who also wrote lyrics for the people who became Blue Oyster Cult ] reviewed an Allman Brothers album -thus —-

    You.have come to the right Bhoy. If you cannot get a city centre hotel then try Premier Inn at Heaton Park my daughter works there. It is north of city two minutes off motorway. Plus I drive a taxi and live local.

    The wee course is tougher than the big one at dalmahoy, imo.



    Short, however, small greens and small bunkers make it tough.

    ‘smoke’ as in a Samuel L Jacksonesque ‘Ah’m gonna smoke that honky MF’s ass on the down low!’

  17. Zbyszeck @ 11 49.



    Yes – I remember that rumor.



    Udinese have just spent @ 2 million euros on a Uruguyan ” prospect. ” They have also taken 2 French defenders on 6 month loans with an option to buy in the summer.

  18. Philbhoy yes I agree the big course can be a it of a slog ,wee course more interesting and I kept the driver in the bag too for most of it…all big greens were on thought very frosty..we played a four ball ..sons of fergus v sons of William …the good guys won !


    Also enjoyed telling them I could only play on Saturday as I was going to hampden on Sunday!.. Their wee faces were a picture ..HH

    Noticed the talk about Ian Brown in the wee hours,Unfinished Monkey Business was better than Music Of The Spheres.




  20. Ref Gordon64,s point earlier.My info is Rapid have a 40% sell on clause plus the Dark Side still owe Rapid 1m Euros,can anyone confirm this, have any of our esteemed journalists been asked, time for answers I think. Hail Hail Hebcelt

  21. tommytwiststommyturns on

    hebcelt – I would be “astounded of forehead” if any club agreed to such a huge percentage. 20% would seem more realistic if there is a sell-on clause at all.




  22. John Guidetti



    on loan from Manchester City currently Playing for Feyenoord some player only 19 ,13 goals in 13 games.


    Prefer a sunny Hampden. Let’s hope the Celtic turn on the style and give us something too cheer today.


    Anyone have an idea on the size of crowd expected ?
