Christie and managing your assets


Surely Ryan Christie deserves a season at Celtic to show what he can do?  It was a sound enough idea to buy him and immediately loan him back to Inverness.  He has flourished at Aberdeen, but with only 10 Celtic appearances in what will be three years since joining the club, he has not been given a platform to show what he has.

I get that competition is great for the creative mid spots at Celtic, but our plan should be to develop players into first team regulars, or enhance their value and sell them profitably.  Ryan is doing well enough at Aberdeen to attract interest from the Football League, but with a few medals and perhaps Champions League experience under his belt, he would be a more valuable asset.

Celtic players are worth more than Aberdeen players, just as Manchester City and PSG players are worth more than Celtic’s.  Bring Ryan in for next season, make a decision on his future, or work to enhance his value to the club.

    A good read thanks, an utter scandal that they SFA/Sevco have gotten away with this up to now.

    I know Scotland and the Huns used to wear the same coloured socks s but I didn`t know red, white and blue were the national side`s current (!) colours.

    For a man who educated children you strike me as being very naive or just plane ignorant of Scotland

  4. I had a very enjoyable day wandering around Malaga with Embramike.



    We put the world to rights during our meandering(s) and when you all wake up in the morning ,if the world has not righted itself as a result – its his fault. :)

    Good Evening Fholks



    Norrie M (The CQN Artist formerly known as Cowiebhoy) who is travelling at the moment, and his lovely youngest daughter, Laura wish to pass on their incredible gratitude and sincere thanks for the CQN support for Laura’s charity race night which is being held tomorrow night.



    All the Jockeys have been sold exclusively to CQNers and indeed such was the demand that they have even sold two races as CQN Owners ( race 1 and 5)



    Remember the winning Jockey and Owner of each race will win one of the following posters ( The winner choses!)





    Of course, equally important is the bragging rights and indeed the head to head competition between the CQNers, so given that we have been looking all week for a list, here is one coming up

    Considering my nephew Marco has cerebral palsy and has had over 20 ops to try to walk mobile Marco is a fantastic name??

    That’s amazing, as the horses have been separately sold and named.



    Hope you win? You picking the print of the Original Holy Goalie then?



    I will also be betting on that in race 6, as looking at the other jockeys you do not have much competition :-)







  10. mike in toronto on

    How come I got Bateen bhoy as my jockey?! I know there are a few on there who are much smaller than BB! Could I trade him in for Weefra?



    Are the other jockeys having to carry weight?




  11. mike in toronto on

    Bateenbhoy …. if we lose this raise, you know where the horse’s head is going to end up, dont you?




  12. The Blogger Formerly Known As GM on

    What’s this? SFA/Seco connections? Need to improve media communication?



    I thought Darryl Broadfoot had that gig for years before moving on to a PR consultancy.



    You know, the guy who used to write for Rangers News, The Herald and is now is a regular on Sportsound.
