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.

    Has Tom suffered a relapse of his heart problems? Please pass on our good wishes if you have a conduit. He sent me helpful messages when I visited the Coast late last year.



    He doesn’t deserve this.

  3. FF have a thread on this guy and its sheer comedy gold, its about 5/6 pages long and starts off with ” excellent signing for us” ” He’ll ragdoll tims” etc etc then a couple of pages into someone posts ” Celtic are hijacking this deal” half a dozen posts on them searching for proof then the rest going mental …fair cheered me up anyway

    Thanks for that dude.



    You forget what these young guys have had to give up to try and live their dream.


    My very best wishes to young Keiran. I hope it works out for him.



    Was it not Minty who wanted rid of the reserve league (correct me if i’m wrong anybody) because he was sick of seeing his MP runts being humped by our young Bhoys season on end?

  5. Are there any bad omens attached to smashing a tea cup/mug ?


    Just knocked mine off the desk.

  6. Good afternoon friends.



    Firstly, best wishes Gold Coast Tom and here’s hoping for a full and speedy recovery.



    Watching the Liverpool Man U game with mixed emotions. Never particularly keen on Man U winning at anything but somebody went and picked them for the CQN coupon. Got a bit mixed up and shouted ‘yee-ha’ when Liverpool took the lead.



    I do have the game on my ‘3 goals or more line’ so a Man U comeback would be welcomed on this occasion. Mind you, I also have the QPR / Chelsea game on that line too (no goals after 58 mins) so not a good start to the afternoon.




  7. In the car a wee while ago listening to Shortread …



    When discussing on air (with Billy Dodds and Rob ‘Sectarian Singing’ McLean) the minor difficulties being experienced by another (soon to be former) Glasgow football club, Jabba observes that ‘some of the Club’s supporters still don’t seem to realise how grave the situation is’ …



    One wonders how that can be?



    What a tube!




  8. the long wait is over on

    Never like to hear of troubles for a fellow CQN’er.



    Get well soon GCT.




    Incidentally isnt Agger supposed to be a big Celtic fan?

    I was trying to be diplomatic.



    My current losing streak on the ole cqn coupon must now be about 6 or 7 games…(Cowdenbeath won’t let me down today)




  11. Mark \o/ McGhee's \o/ Eyeliner \o/ AKA Mark Guidi on

    I get abuse from PF for taking long odds on shots so this week decided to go with manure…

  13. so the polish boy looka like a goer does it, not worried bout his hight we been a powerful striker who can score 5.11 tall, if others want someone who stands at 6 foot +, he gets that extra inch or so from his studs hahaha a hate the r******
