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.

  1. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!! Tick Tock !! on

    That’s reassuring ……Radio punter is 100% certain Neil won’t be fired if Falkirk win………prattish fud….!!!!!



    Brosek….to sign later today……..DOOT…DOOOOOO…!!!!!

  2. Think Matthews is just being protected as a booking would take him out of the final….




  3. Just seeing DUH DUH DUH DUH Barry Robson score for the smoggies brings back some good and bad memories…



    Was his first goal in that game we thumped the dons – think aiden did a lovely wee turn? Then that header against Barca!



    Think he scored against the Arabs as well that time when we conceded two in the last ten minutes from corners under BTM

  4. Good to see Neil select a strong winning team, no need for major changes or to rest players, and they should all be up for it, this will be the first medal they win this season, and for some of them their first Celtic or career medal. Get in there lads!



    PS the tennis is fkng awesome. 20-30 shot rallies in the 6th hour of the match. The women players watching it must realise they have some cheek to demand (and get) the same pay. Not beyond concept that the tennis is still on by the time we kick off.

  5. Lennon n Mc....Mjallby on

    Always liked Robson,he could still have been doin a turn for us covering injuries just now but Skippy had to go especially playing alongside Sammy although the wee man’s goals against the hun in the Robson penalty game and his goal at the midden with that superb link up with Samaras will not be forgotten,perhaps Skippy maybe suffered from our midfield system at the time where Broon was in the middle and Aiden/Naka isolated on the wing…….

  6. Always thought Hartley and Robson were sold too soon and in Hartley’s case was constantly played out of position in the holding role – he was a terrier who did his best work sitting just behind the forward/s.



    They were perfect for tough SPL games – ICT away furrinstance…
