Jaroslaw Fojut on Celtic, Lennon and possibly moving this month

1057

Jaroslaw Fojut spoke to a Polish newspaper yesterday on his decision to join Celtic. Our man in Poland kindly transcribed:

When asked if he would like to move to Celtic this month, Jaroslaw said, “If I move to Celtic this winter a convenient outcome for all sides would need to happen.  If I need to stay in Wroclaw until the end of the season it will not be a tragedy.  My decision to sign for Celtic is not going to change my dedication to Slask.

“Whatever the outcome, I will not be aggrieved.

“The people at Slask offered me a good contract.  Before I signed for Celtic I met Slask chairman, Piotr Wasniewski and explained my situation.  I wanted to play fair with the club who were always fair with me.

“Money was not the main reason I decided to go to Scotland.  I do not have to justify myself by telling you what kind of club Celtic is and the real reasons behind my decision.

“My agent told me about signals from other club but there were no concrete offers.  Celtic were determined to sign me and when their offer came in I did not look for other options.

“I expect competition for a place in the Celtic team to be high but when I get a chance to play I will make good use of that privilege.  I have not spoken to Neil Lennon yet but I am aware of what he has said about me and look forward to meeting him.

“I remember playing against him when he was with Nottingham.  I think we played twice in the cup and once in the league but could not be sure.

“I planned to call Lukasz Zaluska and ask what it was like at Celtic but what if he told me things were bad there?”  Which Jaroslaw laughed at.

“Lukasz and I will have lots to talk about, we are both Legia supporters.

“I’m not going to argue about whether the Scottish or Polish league is better, everyone is entitled to their opinion on this.  I’m pretty sure we have no club in Poland who can compare to Celtic, whatever aspect you analyse, economic issues, organisation, supporters, stadium or anything.

“Let’s not forget Celtic play in Europe every year and battle for the biggest prizes.

“In a way going to Celtic is a dream come true but my dreams will have to change.  I will not going the Bhoys and feel happy, my ambitions will have to move on.  I am sure Lionel Messi still has something to win and achieve.  He has never been the champion of the world and that is why he must improve.  I’m pretty sure I will not be short of incentives.

“Celtic is a very big deal for me but you do not climb the mountain and say, OK, I’m done.

“My acclimatisation is going to me easier in many aspects.  I know the British game, I know what the coaches expectations are.  During my years in England I learned the language so I’ll not have problems with communication.”

    The exact same accountants who flatly refuse to sign off the hun accounts .. so no doubting their integrity you can relax and dream ever so sweetly :-))

     

     

    Hail Hail

  3. KevJungle – I should think you have more immediate concerns, such as:

     

     

    * Your tortuously intertwined family tree looks more like a wreath

     

     

    * Facecombing

     

     

    * Learning how to read good

     

     

    * Learning how to do other stuff good, too

    I think that the huns are resigned to their fate.It’s all over bar the shouting.But,for me,the hun can wait until the end of the season.They are of little concern to me.

     

     

    No points deducted,no sanctions,no nothing.Send them to the third division,send them to the moon,but not just yet.There is nothing there,only their contemptable media,still fighting away like the cornered rats that they are.

     

     

    The treble is on,regardless.

     

     

    This is going to be a sweet one.

    Can I make it QUITE CLEAR that the 9.20 post is a re-post of an earlier James Forrest post which had been referred to often enough to make the repost advisable. The credit is all James`.

     

     

    Kev,

     

    I don`t know what the Board would do . I assume they would do what they thought was best for Celtic FC. Makes sense tae me, as someone might say.

    Google search independent auditors and annual accounts.

     

     

    Thre’s an amazing amount of knowledge at your fingertips if you could only be bothered to look

  9. I think a game of brinksmanship is taking place right under our noses ?

     

     

    Who brought in Mo Bangura ?

     

     

    Was he the choice of Neil Lennon ?

     

     

    Was Mo brought in by PL because he was cheaper ?

     

     

    Neil watches Mo every day in training but, Mo hardly ever gets more than, 10/15 mins yet, he is on the bench for EVERY game ?

     

     

    Every player Neil has brought in has, cut the mustard! IMO!

     

     

    Now, when the most expensive recruit in this season is fit enough for the bench in EVERY game but, never gets a start, even when Hooper was injured ? mmmm

     

     

    SPLOB’s please leave the building, before you feck the championship race for the 4th consecutive season! IMO!

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    You are quite correct. I would have said: It`s OK to hate Rangers , they should go out of business and Scottish football would be better off.

    I’d like to see us pay the 2m for Fraser Forster now. He has earned a contract with us. It will give himself, the club, the players a massive boost going into the 2nd half of the season. He is improving all the time with us. Get him signed Celtic.

     

     

    I too think big Fraser should be signed and for 2m will

     

    be a bargain. I have also to eat humble pie because I

     

    thought we should have went for Pletkosa instead.

     

    Neil’s judgement has once again proved sound as the

     

    big man has got better and better, he’s is more assured

     

    and confident than last season and his judgement is

     

    much better. There is still room to improve but it will

     

    come for me he has been a starman this season thus

     

    far.

     

    Welcome Jaroslaw,

     

    I like the cut of this young fellas gib and hope he can

     

    play as well as he speaks.

     

     

    Hail Hail.

    Ay, there’s the rub.

     

     

    The board are obliged to do what’s in the best interests of the shareholders.

     

     

    That means it comes down to ££££££.

     

     

    And only ££££££.

     

     

    How do you think they would vote?

    Can an FOI not be requested to HMRC to find out when the wee tax bill was sent as surely they must have record to the huns first reply to it?

  16. MoonbeamsWD- the evidential part of the hearing concluded yesterday, the three wise men then go away and think about it before delivering a conclusion in March/April.

     

     

    The likeliest verdict is ‘Not Proven’. ;/)

     

     

    I was doing my ole mum’s online tax return last night- I couldn’t find the box you tick for ‘EBT’s or ‘side letters’.

    I find it so bad Jungle as to not be worthy of comment. However, I did succumb last night ( mea culpa)

     

     

    Munich;appeasement;World War 2; 55 million dead;Europe destroyed – analogous with football club in minor European league that fiddles its taxes and doesn’t receive its proper comeuppance

    Minty Moonbeam Murray was never a fan of football/soccer.

     

     

    Rugby was his “sport”.

     

     

    He like many others,before and after him,hi-jacked that wee club for sectarian reasons.They used it as a vehicle for bigotry,and they ran it into the ground,like that cruise ship off the coast of Italy.

     

     

    Murray jumped ship,like a rat does.Now that jibberish speaking,so-called billionaire is ready to bleed them dry like a blood-drinking leech.

     

     

    Deep down,in my heart of hearts,i have some sympathy,for the few genuine fans of that club.And there are some,the few notable exceptions,but alas their fate has been sealed.

     

     

    The founding fathers of that wee club never intended it to be a poison palace.It just turned into that.

     

     

    We must not mourn their passing into oblivion.They deserve it.

    Whoever was responsible for Bangura signing, it appears to be a mistake. That happens in football, not every signing is going to work out but when a team who plead poverty invest (allegedly) £2m+ you need to get that right.

     

    Bangura will, IMO, go out on loan this window and given one more chance during pre-season. If he still hasn’t improved he will be the next Rasmussen, being passed from side to side on loan for the next couple of years until his contract runs out.

     

    Hope he shows whatever it was whoever saw in him but can’t see it

  22. tictalker, yes, agree.

     

     

    KevJungle, loved your question, which was where CQN started back in 2004 with “Where is all the Seville money?” This question was asked by a (still active) Radio Clyde pundit the previous day, as though the information was not already publicly available, which got me sufficiently motivated to start the blog.

     

     

    The accounts are available on the official site, are posted to all shareholders and give v detailed breakdown of where the money goes.

     

     

    Wages take the biggest slice, the club employed circa 300 people last time I checked. From what I can gather it takes close to £20m p.a. to operate the club before costs for footballers wages and transfers. This covers rates, policing, electricity, IT, interest, property maintenance and the myriad of others items required to stage football games.

     

     

    PKF (UK) LLP audit the accounts.

     

     

    saltires en sevilla, yes, unusual that Neil has not spoken to him but more important that Neil has watched him.

     

     

    ernie lynch, yes, the board are obliged to do the bidding of the shareholders, but there are 26,000 of us and we have never complained about the lack of profits. The overwhelming majority of shareholders are Celtic fans, many of whom will also be season ticket holders. There is no need to regard them as subversive.

     

     

    Shareholder wishes at Celtic are not, and since Fergus put the PLC in place in 1994, never have been about profits. The club operated for 7 consecutive years at a loss and has made a loss over any business cycle you care to identify. It would be wholly unfair to suggest shareholder interests were financial. We are Celtic supporters, just like you.
