Quantcast

Lukasz and the players who step forward for fans more often

203

I should have written about Lukasz Zaluska who left Celtic during the week.  You need a good understudy keeper in order to keep your no. 1 on the top of his game.  Lukasz was never more than a pretender to the throne but he had the confidence of Gordon Strachan, Neil Lennon and latterly, Ronny Deila.

He’s a year older than Craig Gordon, but the bare fact that he made only 17 appearances in the last five seasons reduced his effectiveness.  How regularly do you need to play games before your manager will trust you to step out in a big, must-win, game?  Probably more than slightly more than three a year over five years.

There’s often a great unwritten story when it comes to Celtic players and Lukasz’s is a lengthy tale of sorting out Celtic fans, or the Scots-Polish community, with this or that.  He made the extra effort on many occasions.  There would have been a day I’d have said this effort was rare, but the truth is it’s a lot more common than it was a decade or so back.

    It’s a puzzler,that. As CANAMALAR noted earlier,the site should either be working or not working. Not both!

     

     

    Could be that is why it is taking so long to get back to normal.

    Aye,it is. But people need to somehow follow MAESTRO’s instructions to read them in the first place!

    Just sneaked a look at the back page of The Record while I was in wH Smiths. It’s dreadful news for Timmy,I’m afraid.

     

     

    Seems the good times,the days of living high on the hog,are back down Ibrox way

    Yep,just can’t help themselves. Anyone would think AWE NAW had got a job as a sub-editor.

    With @CQN still down I can exclusively reveal that it’s no longer raining in East Kilbride and indeed there are a few breaks in the cloud.

    Patience is a virtue.

    AR – I saw that. I remember when the Hootsmon was a quality paper. No more. That’s as bad as anything you would see in the other rags.

    the pantaloon duck,

     

     

    Sneaking a win against an off-form Barcelona? What about Milan, Man Utd, Liverpool, Lyon, Benfica, Shaktar, Anderlecht, Porto and so on, were they all sneaky wins?

     

    Total garbage churnalism, another eejit to keep outside of our press conferences.

    It is possible to get onto CQN unfortunately you won’t be able to read this to find out

     

    how you do it

     

     

     

    So there is no point in telling you

    BSR,

     

     

    I see your little tale resurfacing in the Mag.

     

     

    Must be the silly season!

    Paul67 put it on twitter he obviously needed to use a quality piece to rival the Hugh McIlvanney Conversations. (smiley face)

  17. The Pantaloon Duck on

    So Eustace is jetting in to sign for Sevco? We’re going to fail in our swoop for Scott Allan?

     

     

    O me miserum!

     

     

    *trembling Timmy*

  18. thomthethim for Oscar OK on

    BSR.

     

     

    Mc.Illvanney actually mentioned Sevco with the words, administration, liquidation and restarted in Div.3.

     

     

    Not much, but it is the first reference that I have read From him.

  19. Yippeeee, I’m in :-)

     

     

    Gremlins or are we Hunder an attack ?

     

     

    Right lets see who we get in the CL draw

    Anyone else managed to have a look at Aidan Smith’s piece in the Scotsman this morning, boy do they hate us.

    Smith is correct,up to a point. His argument is that it is unfair to expect the burden of a coefficient to fall on a team which is manifestly unable to do so.

     

     

    He misses the point entirely,simply to have a go at one of his former favourites-see his article yesterday about writing to Hibs to try to stop the transfer of some muppet to a long-gone entity.

     

     

    Collins states an unpalatable truth. The more teams we have in Europe,the less chance we have of our coefficient improving. That is not the fault of Celtic. Nor,really,is it the fault of the diddy teams who get knocked out by foreign diddy teams. They are all entitled to their day in the sun-the fans,the players,the committee men.

     

     

    But it doesn’t alter the fact that four teams in Europe with only one consistently earning any points dilutes our chances.
