Quantcast

Commons needed for busy February

963

Neil Lennon’s comments that he will need to sell at Bolton Wanderers before making a bid for Kris Commons, or anyone else, are welcome.  Celtic have four important games in the four weeks after this transfer window closes: home and away to Inter Milan, Aberdeen in the league, and a League Cup semi-final against newco Rangers.  Commons will be vital for some, if not all of these games.

Inter will play on the front foot and Aberdeen have the players to take the game to us, as they did in the Scottish Cup at Celtic Park last season, but I expect newco to defend their 18 yard line in numbers, a bit like Ross County did last week, a scenario which will require someone with Commons’ craft.

Neil Warnock’s sacking at Crystal Palace was good news, as he wanted Commons, had money to spend and could offer the allure of top-flight football.  Neil Lennon would be able to offer Commons familiarity, but with Bolton spending a total of £300k in the summer, their chances of being able to afford a bid for Commons that would raise Celtic’s interest are limited.

    Is it true, you’re not a concerned, thinking, free, Celtic Supporter, who wants only the best for his club and her Supporters, you’re nothing more than an imbecilic hun troll….

     

     

    Oh! how deceived was I?

  2. I would love too have seen lenny stay another season and ronnie graddually brought into the number 1 role.

     

     

    Ronnie wanted to change things from the bottomup.. tough to do that when your number 1 I would imagine.

  3. Kris Commons is too good to be collecting skelfs in his arse… Celtic should either find a place for him on the park or do the right thing – by him – and let him go. He’s got a limited working life as he knows it. After all Celtic’s mission statement and charter and all. Or is that all toilet paper too?

  4. If we are relying on KC for the Inter game then we’ve lost before a ball is kicked. Consistently poor in Europe.

    If it is true that Watford are interested in Commons I think he will go as part of a deal for Aanya. H.H.

    big georges fan club – hail, hail, wee oscar

     

     

    We have put together a wee group to get this just right – there are four of us working on it at moment. Auldheid, BRTH, James Forrest and myself.

     

     

    We also have a strategy to get maximum impact. We are asking all supporters’ sites to publish the feature at the same time and we will be issuing a press release – having briefed key journalists outside the SMSM – on this.

     

     

    We are also looking at any international angles possible – any other ideas are welcome.

    Cheers – will keep thinking.

     

     

    Not met any of you guys (as far as I know), but keep chipping away.

     

     

    Me and Wee BGFC did have a good chat with James’ dad on the plane back from Barcelona – very proud of his bhoy:-)

    Do you think Pardew will have time to identify his new charges deficiencies and also his own targets ?

    Hunskelper – that should read Hunaquiescer.

     

     

    “The Huns are dead” wrong Rangers are dead. The Huns will be back.

     

    I would change your moniker, it’s not you.

     

    Your apathy towards cheating and corruption makes me sick, let’s do nothing and blindly support a rigged game.

     

    I come on here and get hope from the likes of Canalmar, Auldheid, BRTH, you want to go back to the good old bad days. Open your eyes.

     

     

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

     

     

    Absolutely spot on …!!

  9. If only we could trim our bloated squad and focus on quality not quantity. 1000s of pounds going down the drain every week on players who will never be first team picks.

  10. Slán abhaile:

     

     

    I had it in my head mate that you’d retired, been a while since you’ve been on. Did you give up on the Latin?

  11. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Gary67. Maybe im a real Neg.but I cant see us doing anything against Inter so I would build the team now looking forward to the Champions League qualifyers.We should try to trim the dead wood and of course it wont be easy but replace them with better players who will genuinely improve the first team squad. H.H.

  12. Just saw the headline regarding Sutton’s claim that

     

    – he expects us to win the treble

     

    – it would be the worst ever

     

     

    Hmm.

     

     

    Firstly, if we are so bad, as Chris has often proclaimed, then why does he expect us to win the tenor.

     

     

    Secondly, there haven’t been many trebles won by us, and I guess one of them has to be the best and one of them has to be the worst.

     

     

    I’ll settle for winning a treble this year and it being recognised as the worst.

     

     

    p.s. how do I change my monicker using an iPad?

  13. Half watching the salt n sauce derby.

     

    Very impressed by Scott Allan.

     

     

    Also see our manager in press again, and Imho putting his foot in it, claiming we are best team in league ( we are second) and that we have scored most goals ( again, we are second).

     

    Can’t help but think that if that is how he speaks in dressing room, it’s no wonder players have lost form and look bewildered.

  14. BIG-CUP-WINNERS on

    Anyone else think the money from the Semi-final dosh will be important to the newclub’s short term survival ?

    Did you consider that maybe Ronnie spoke those words before our postponed game? In which case he would be correct on both counts.

  16. NegAnon:

     

     

    You be good now, very gently as she goes, not too rich a discord stew of concern is good in the one day for those of a devotion to a faithful through and through life long indoctrination, though married to a weak and blinkered disposition.

    IMHO Kris Commons has been leaving Celtic since October when his automatic first team place started to become in doubt.

     

     

    I believe KC has intimated to Celtic that his contract offer of one year isn’t good enough, and hasn’t been since it was first offered last summer.

     

     

    The contract stalemate meant he didn’t fit ‘the system’ and that’s hee haw to do with RD’s ‘high tempo pressing game system’.

     

     

    If you don’t start against Ross County you’re not likely to be the slayer of Inter.

  18. Clashcitybhoy

     

     

    Got to disagree, I see nothing in Allen, we haven’t got with Liam Henderson, so give Liam a chance first ?

     

     

    Hail Hail

  19. P.s. Dundee United and Hamilton both have scored more goals than us by virtue of their last game.

  20. Stairheedrammy on

    Having watched KC this season I haven’t seen any evidence that he is able to influence any of the forthcoming games. He now appears to have lost a yard of pace and is more likely to lose possession than to contribute anything positive. Sorry but his time with us is done. Why not try bringing in a younger playmaker- Henderson or Scot Allan for example.

    See Alan Stubbs is out his depth. Playing 2 strikers get with the program Alan not modern football.
