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.

    testis testis testis ………..hope these computer bugs are not contagious………speaking of contagious…….

     

     

    A teacher asks her class to use the word “contagious”. Roland, the teacher’s pet, gets up and says, “Last year I got the measles and my mum said it was contagious.”

     

    “Well done, Roland,” says the teacher.

     

    “Can anyone else try?”

     

    Katie, a sweet little girl with pigtails, says, “My grandma says there’s a bug going round, and it’s contagious.”

     

    “Well done, Katie,” says the teacher. “Anyone else?”

     

    Little Irish Sean jumps up and says in a broad Dublin accent, “Our next door neighbour is painting his house with a two inch brush, and my dad says it will take the contagious.”
