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.

    i honestly dont give a flying f*** about excuses, selling jelly increases our chance of winning league, i hope they do sell jelly, its very simple



    there is no excuse you either win or lose thats the bottom line, we have lost the league over the last three years, i want to win the league



    if they want to use excuses then you can apply them to their league wins i.e. because they did not pay their taxes etc…

    Pawel will do for me. He fills a gap in our current squad’s skill set.



    He can score goals with his head and he can score a penalty.



    Oh… And he snubbed Them. Sounds a bit like BBJ (with more hair).

    We will win it whether they have him or not. I’d rather they didn’t get the money for him!

  10. The Honest Cover-up on

    Brozek looks impressive in the youtube video doing the rounds.


    Not the tall physical striker who’d give us an extra dimension we were hoping for, but looks like he’d provide quality cover for Stokes and Hooper. I’ll settle for that.


    His goal scoring stats look good, espicially 2007-9. The boy certainly looks like he knows how to put his laces through the ball!


    For those who say anyone can look good in a youtube compilation they’ve obviously not seen Bangura’s video!

    i think we will win the league also, but i think the selling of jelly will make for an easier ride.



    the money will be there for him in the summer as well, its better for us if he goes now



    but no matter when they get the money its just going to fill the hole in their accounts, even without the tax case they’re in deep and will hav to cut into their wage bill, CW said it himself

    Agree. As ever my personal jury will remain out til I’ve seen him in the Hoops. As with any ‘unknowns’ (well unknown to me) I always have a wee voice in the back of my head saying ‘if he was that good, why has nobody else signed him?’ but then I had no clue about Kayal, Victor, Izzy et – bleeding- cetera. Hoping the scouts and management have found another surprise package.

    Exactly. Obviously we should never sign a player based solely on a youtube video but it can give you a quick insight to a player. Put it this way; if youtube had been around in 1998 when an “unknown Slovakian” signed it would have saved the blushes of a lot of supporters and journalists!

    Aha, indeed. I am presently crumpling up my ‘any player looks good on YouTube’ manifesto and preparing to flick it into a bin.



    Mind you, I still feel, re Bang Bang Epic Hair, I haven’t seen enough to make a judgement. How many minutes has the fella actually played? How many of those were effects-of-injury-free? Ok if I was a betting man I would not be putting the mortgage on him being a works beater but I still give the guy a square go. Uh, not in the fisticuffs sense.

  16. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!! Tick Tock !! on

    How can we have signed him…… hasn’t been mentioned on any of our radio stations…?

  17. Nuclear Bovril and a Half Munched Pie on

    Works beater = world beater.



    And if any of you say he should be a panel beater then you are being far too cruel.

    Kojo. Anyone who drop points to this Hibernian side who have absolutely no confidence and no idea would really need to be playing with 8 men. H.H.

  22. Posted this a while ago from Rankers Media – still makes me laugh.



    “Why are the banks reluctant to help Rangers?



    Couldn’t help but notice that two out of three chairmen of Scotland’s biggest banks are Earl Haigs and are BOTH season ticket holders at the Brendanbeu. Granting Rangers a credit facility as opposed to servicing a loan/debt are two separate things. There is something not right here.”



    Off to the vigil.

    Craig Whyte is one odd looking guy, even for a Hun.






    I agree,he’s like a composite of other people’s body parts,all that don’t fit.


    The lovechild of Michael Heseltine and a spacehopper! :-)


    Watching a rerun of ESCAPE FROM SOBIBOR on YESTERDAY.



    Somewhat Hollywoodified,no doubt,and everyone knows the story of THE HOLOCAUST.



    Try to catch it if it is on again soon,it is a powerful reminder.

    Yes – I’m going with ma burd and 4 x others.


    Tip – There is an auction, get your hands on the hand made hooped shaving set (I’ve got inside information on it) an absolute steal if it goes for less than £80.00.

    “The brendanbeu”, the problem with that is I think it’s quite funny, so it doesn’t really work in the way they intend it to. I also laughed at the San Giro, after all sticks and stone may break my bones, but they’re still Huns!
