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.

    Oh the irony…delusion oh most certainly but so deliciously funny PMSL here!!



    Summer of 65

  2. C’mon the Hibees today .



    Radio Clyde saying Brozek 6 month loan deal should go through on Monday .



    Strker with a decent record and a point to prove, especially with the Euros coming up , sounds a good deal.



    Even better Watty Smith says (again on RC) that without money rangers will return to pre-souness levels of players !



    Need a new app for my phone , to find my head which has rolled off due laughter .



    Have a good day all .

  3. These signings are really important. If we have signed quality from non english markets as we have done in recent years, things are looking good for us whatever happens to The Others. FF sammi brown hooper stokes kayal vic commons izzie mulgrew forrest mathews rogne + quality could well see us back into the champion’s league

  12. A poem for Der Hun



    Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table At which he’s fed.


    Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, Teach him taxes Are the rule.


    Tax his work, Tax his pay, He works for peanuts Anyway!


    Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat.


    Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt.


    Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he tries to think.


    Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, If he cries, then tax his tears.


    Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his ass.


    Tax all he has Then let him know, That you won’t be done till he has no dough.



    When he screams and hollers Then tax him more,


    Tax him till he’s good and sore.


    Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in Which he’s laid.


    Put these words Upon his tomb, ‘Taxes drove me to my doom.. . ‘


    When he’s gone, Do not relax, Its time to apply The inheritance tax.

  13. Here’s some more from the same inmate.



    “There should be a limit on the number of non-Scottish footballers in the SPL, this idea has been mooted at UEFA level as there is general concern about the effect of big money clubs distorting the football industry. I admit there were mistakes at Rangers, but those that committed these mistakes have left the club and Mr Whyte has been left to pick up the pieces. Rangers and Hearts in particular were lent money on a reckless scale by the banks with supporters having no say in how the money was spent. I notice that Greece for example is trying to get their huge debts reduced by telling their creditors to take a hit too, in other words, the banks as well as the Greeks made mistakes, they should take the blame and pain too. Surely it is not unreasonable to say, given the prominent role that Rangers plays in Scottish society, to wipe out some if not most of the debt. Maybe I am being idealistic, but given what I see in the wider world, I would say Rangers and others have a case for going down this path.



    Fred ‘the shred’ Goodwin ran the RBS into the ground, got a knighthood and a pension amounting to millions,whereas thousands of ordinary people in banks lost their jobs due to his gross incompetence. Is that right? Of course it is not, there is talk of stripping him of his knighthood, stopping him getting his pension and even bringing him to trial. Rangers were as much a victim as the businesses and people who were robbed by RBS. We were as much victims as the rest.”

    The idiot just doesn’t get it does he. What has non-payment of taxes got to do with the Banks or other creditors? Apart from that minor point his argument is basically you shouldn’t have let us borrow so much money. Well I am going to try this with my bank manager – well you shouldn’t have given me the cards, mortgage and car loan. Sorry but you are going to have to take a hit also I suggest only paying you 10% of what I actually owe. How do you think I will get on?

    28 January, 2012 at 14:10



    That is hunbelievable.



    I agree with the essence of it, though, so I say we concede that this title may be won due to a financial advantage… if they agree to strike the 17 titles they’ve won since Souness arrived and started to buy trophies.



    Celtic have never bought success or favour.

    They’re STILL saying on RC that “rankers will definately win against Hibs” ….. when will they ever learn……..the currents are not favourites to win any game at the moment………not since we proved the ‘behaviour’ of the MIB etc last season……(now remembe, 2 strikers suspended, dodgy defence etc, Hibs are there for the taking by ANY half decent team…..!!?)

  25. The Singing Detective on

    Thoughts and prayers with Gold Coast Tom.



    In the Youtube clip posted at 7:30am this morning,it’s evident that Brozek is pretty deadly in front of goal.



    However,a note of caution…



    It appears that most of the goals featured were scored against the perennial whipping boys of the Polish League,Legia Warsaw.




    One has to wonder how he would fare against the more skilful and technically gifted sides in our own League,such as Motherwell and ICT.



    Only time will tell…
