Scouted, background checked and experienced, Ajeti should succeed

872

Negotiations for Albian Ajeti have gone on for weeks but as you and I have said often enough, it is important to get your first choice.  Too often we end up with a player from well down the list, who did not do enough to overwhelmingly convince anyone.  That is not the case with Ablian.

The player was scouted for a move last year before his ill-fated time in London.  He is known to the manager, who will have sounded out Mohamed Elyounoussi for an assurance on things that are not evident from the stands.

Having played over 170 games, he is also more experienced than many we have signed over the last decade.  This is why we missed out on him a year ago, he was caught on the EPL radars and West Ham made what was for them a cheap acquisition.

These factors make Albian’s prospect of succeeding at Celtic higher than most recruits.  It is a pity he will not have some game time this weekend; let’s hope he is fit for this month’s challenges.

    Those of ye doubting Duffy will eat your words if we get him,

     

    He wants to come but Celtic need to deal with Brighton,

     

    If they don’t , it’s not a case of Duffy snubbing Celtic, he is a professional Football player & if Celtic can’t conclude a deal with Brighton he has no option but to earn his living elsewhere.

     

    Yeah CorkCelt, so how much does Brighton want, for Sean Duffy?

  2. Front page of the Sunday Post & Davie Provan in the Sun, backs up much of what I have posted on here in the last week.

     

     

    Kirsty Wark’s BBC documentary on the Salmond trial will reinforce other things that I posted.

     

     

    Just a quick one to the person who picked up on me calling the SNP a cult, by saying that the Labour Party in Scotland was also a cult during their long time in power.

     

     

    Many criticisms can be laid at Labour’s door, but a cult it certainly was not. The bickering, in-fighting, fall-outs, resignations & bloodbaths over policy & direction were ever present. Labour was a broad church with very noisy parishioners.

     

     

    Contrast that with the SNP, where no one dares speak out of turn, where they constantly defend the indefensible, e.g. McGarry, Thompson, Mackay, Calderwood, Freeman & Swinney.

     

     

    Members are officially warned that criticism of party policy will result in isolation, denial of opportunity & loss of position.

     

     

    During the debate on Swinney’s latest failure, SNP MSPs were actually whooping & clapping.

     

     

    Making an a*** of something, then u-turning to make a bit less of an a*** of it, is no reason for cheering – but they do it, why?…..because they are a CULT.

  3. Many happy returns on his 80th Birthday to the Celtic legend that is Mr John Fallon TOHG. HH 🍀

  4. I would not let Oliver Ntcham go cheaply, to the hey big spenders English Clubs

     

    who are sniffing around & trying to get one of our not bad players on the fly/cheap.

     

    Considering 15Mil according to Sly Sports TV is nothing down there I would personally

     

    be looking for 30+Mil yeah the highest bidder. Also if we let Ntcham go, then we will

     

    have to bring in another playmaker/holding type player in Midfield, & by our Club’s

     

    past & present transfer deallings, that unfortunately is more easier said, than done.

     

    We are already looking, for two new solid & proper defenders @ the back/sieve.

     

    We don’t want our new recruitment shopping list, to get even bigger.

    Please get this Unionist troll to f#*k off this site . He’s doing my box in!

     

    He reminds me of a big Celtic supporting school pal who invited me to be his Facebook pal. His profile picture had a big Naw” going across it. Had a closer look at his posts and his latest one was asking the Royal Navy to bomb the refugees out of the Chanel

    So who is the Unionist troll then?

  8. bluegrass celt on

    AKWB: shouldn’t be too hard to work out . He’s spent the weekend on here. Thinks the SNP are a cult and will be the only party to have automatic control in an Independent Scotland

  9. imo if Neil took ON to the side and convinced and told him that he was going to be a first pick and we were going to build around him we would have a more confident , committed and better player as I feel he knows he is currently only a bit part player and down the pecking order when it comes to the starting 11 and his performances reflect his opinion.

  10. weebobbycollins on

    They come on here, try hard to convert, fail miserably, then disappear back to where they came from…

     

     

    Who trusts politicians these days? Put them all on a cruise ship and set sail for the Bermuda Triangle…

  11. Bluegrass best policy on all Trolls is ignore. They thrive on any sort of response. Not the easiest thing to do at times and I have been as silly as anyone in responding but scroll on by is the only way.

  12. The hand of God on

    Thoroughly enjoyed Lyon’s deserved win against Man City last night great to see Moussa getting another double against the best team in the “greatest league” in the world over the last 5 years.Hopefully some EPL megabucks team will buy him for ridiculously money giving us a tidy sell one sum.Moussa deserves his mega payday also.

  13. Now I know who you are referring too.

     

    This is a fanzine blogg forum, not a political views website.

     

    If one wants to keep going on about politics, then I would

     

    suggest, that they find a more appropriate website.

     

    We all come on here, to give our opinions about our beloved

     

    Club, not to get bogged down in debates, that we can not

     

    personally, change. We all mainly come on here, to make

     

    bold suggestions, that perhaps can move our Club forward,

     

    in the right direction.

     

    Also, as the publican says when in a public house, one should

     

    not talk about politics, & cause division, end of said matter.

    RC, In my opinion, Oliver Ntcham, did not help his 1st team selection cause, when it came out all over

     

    the press, that he was looking for a Transfer.

  15. The hand of God on

    Interesting game tonight Sevilla look like a very good side if unusually for them somewhat light up front Man U are very good in the forward areas but like many of the big clubs dodgy at the back…a tough one to call hoping for a Sevilla victory.

    Your damn tooting WeeBobbyCollins, as my late Father once said about them. Don’t vote for any of

     

    them, because they are all the same. In other words, just in it for the money, & my late Father is

     

    right, you just have to look @ the jobs they get, for the boys & girls when when they step aside.

     

    It’s all one big con, where there is all waffle but no substance, & action speaks louder than words,

     

    which these numpties tend to avoid, end of.

  17. The hand of God on

    Celtic have by our own standards spent decent money on Barkas and Ajeti…not forgetting Soro and Klimala in January but I think the position that requires more cover is undoubtedly centre half …would love to see us push the boat out and sign a Balde/Aitken figure or even 2 feel our team needs a more physical presence.

  18. bluegrass celt on

    I’ve tried ignoring the political public broadcasts since Friday. Unfortunately, one or two were keeping him/her going that it was cracking me up.

     

    So I’m sorry, I just had to say something so that we could get back to discussing on here what is all dear to our hearts…….wether that be positive or negative…..we all want the same thing in the end 👍🍀

  19. weebobbycollins on

    The wee poison dwarf is never aff the telly or the wireless…but has anyone ever heard from Richard Leonard?

     

    Wendy Alexander, Iain Gray, Johann Lamont, Jim Murphy, Keziia Dugdale…

     

    David McLetchie, Annabel Goldie, Ruth Davidson, Jackson Carlaw, Douglas (red card, red card) Ross…

     

    Even the Romans did more for Scotland…

    You are right The Hand of God, it is a match which will be too close to call.

     

    I’ve got a sneaky feelling, maybe wrong, that Sevilla will win in the end.

     

    Sevilla, also have a good record in that tournament as well.

     

    No doubt, the BT Sport Commentaitors, will be cheering on Man U.

     

    The said Commentaitors, thought it would be a stroll in the park for Man U,

     

    when they played Copenhagen the previous round, how wrong they where.

     

    Some of the commentry makes me laugh, frinstance that shot defies mathimatics,

     

    when Man U hit the post in said match. & What, the Copenhagen Defender’s

     

    tackle, put out the fire of that attack.

    just double checked the definition of the word “cult”

     

     

    “A religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader. the members of such a religion or sect”

     

     

    Nope I’m definitely not a member of one. Glad I checked though…….

  24. Corkcelt…………I have to agree with your comments regarding Shane Duffy, when I heard about Neil Lennon’s interest in getting Shane on loan my immediate reaction was jeez he would be a great addition to our defence. A player who is first and foremost a defender with no frills and also a huge goal threat from the set-piece. Shane may definitely want to join but at the end of the day it’s the clubs who decide and of course we have the usual dilemma when the EPL clubs also tune their antennas into the situation.

     

     

    Duffy will never win anything with the EPL clubs being mentioned but will with Celtic and could even make history. A terrific player at International lever and the right man for Europe.

  25. At this moment of time our defense is our weakest link,

     

    I believe in building from the back, the one thing that worries me about the Huns is that they are keeping clean sheets everywhere. Even in the bloody Viola Cup. I’m open to correction but I think they have only conceded 1 goal and that was away to Bayer Leverkusen.

     

    Say what you like about them and I’m the very same as anyone else in that regard but they are well organized at the back and defend their box bloody well

  26. WeeBobbyCollins, LOL, Even The Romans Did More For Scotland.

     

    A true point, the Romans left us a wall, that even parts of it, still remain today.

     

    Tourist Scotland, also point that matter out, as well.

     

    So the Roman Wall still brings in Tourism, which is financially good news for

     

    Scotland.

  27. HankRay,

     

    Someone said earlier we don’t need a blood & snotters centre half, I think that’s exactly what we need,

     

    We have a lovely football playing team but the only one with a bit if divil in him is Brooney and Brooney is in the twilight of his career.

     

    Duffy will give us that dig & commitment, I think he is tailor made for what we need right now.

  28. THE HAND OF GOD on 16TH AUGUST 2020 10:29 AM

     

     

    Sound post and observations my friend.

     

     

     

    There has been confusion in response to covid as it’s new,to us as a generation,with only the history books to recall the societal impact,like post ww1.

     

     

    It is new.

     

     

    it is also new to us as a virus and how we reacted to it.That reaction has been confused.

     

    as ordinary people we turn to our govts for direction.That response has been privatized/liberalized to the point that no one is taking charge no response! or so ultimately confusion resulting in people doing what they want.

     

     

    Atop this is modern media where Joe (in his y fronts new world order:-)with 40,000 likes on Twitter or facebook is taken as seriously as our virologists.cannae be right!

     

     

    Covid is change imo.a normal we used to recall.i too have been out every day through this.some odd experiences like 17 motors on mway between haggs rd to bothwell roundabout and being only person on Buchanan St on a sat morning at 9am.

     

     

    We have to think how we plan and rebuild now after lockdown.somehow we have to do that.join up those threads of responsibility obfuscated by privatization/liberalization by all our governments since 1976.nobody taking responsibility means our only reaction is conditioned to that of an individual when a societal response should have laid down.(testing etc)

     

     

    hope you and yours are good mate.

  29. Shane Duffy is a premiership player who is still relatively young.

     

    He was named Brighton’s player of the year in 17/18.

     

     

    He is out of our league for at least another 4 years.

     

     

    HH.

    You are right CorkCelt, our top priority @ present, should be strengthening @ the back, that is a must.

  31. RC, In my opinion, Oliver Ntcham, did not help his 1st team selection cause, when it came out all over

    must have missed that, don’t believe everything you read from MSM.

  32. CORKCELT,

     

    When I mentioned about Celtic diehards last night,it was not Duffy I was referring to,it was Fletcher.I would have Duffy in right away.We have plenty of nice footballers in our team,we need some dig and grit to go with it.No idea what his team want for him in a straight transfer,have not heard a figure mentioned.2 million is very excessive for a years loan,so worth asking how much.

  33. The hand of God on

    I tend to have a favourite team in most of the European leagues (bit silly I guess) used to be Real Betis in Spain purely for the colours even bought a strip in my youth but after doing a it of research i wasnt impressed by a section of their white power nazi type fans I’m sure it’s a very small minority but I have switched allegiance to Sevilla who in my opinion most suit the Celtic profile if Rayo Vallecano get back into la life I might change my mind again.

  34. in rumour terms who are this morning’s top 3

     

    Duffy? Toney? Markkel? – psg.
