Shrinking the squad, and an update

454

I’d hopes Dedryck Boyata would bask in the reflective glory of being part of a fancied Belgium squad at the forthcoming Euros. It would enhance is reputation and perceived value, but alas, his injury has ruled him out, and will likely mean he’ll miss Champions League qualifiers, so he’s on the payroll and in the stand for at least a portion of next season.

News that Colin Kazim-Richards will travel to Brazil to discuss a move there will help Brendan Rodger’s attempts to bring the squad size down to a more reasonable level, as Carlton Cole’s pay-as-you-play arrangement will formally become a don’t-pay-as-you’re-not-playing further clears the decks. This leaves only, Leigh Griffiths and returning strikers Anthony Stokes and Stefan Scepovic, who will, at most, be a bit-part players.

Getting it right with the next striker to sign is important after so many misfires.

We’re finally seeing some movement on Res 12 issues. The advert will first appear in the principle business newspaper in Nyon, where Uefa have their headquarters. Will update you as and when. We’re going to run the UK ad after the Swiss story, so nothing here tomorrow.

Oh, and there was no legal action or threats thereof last night. We had a tactical rethink and pulled a related article, nothing more.

    just ordered my copies of the Guardian for tomorrow one for me and one to pass on :))))))))))))

  2. Hi Paul67,

     

     

    Brendan Rodgers and his backroom team have a huge amount of work to do before the qualifiers start.

     

     

    However I’m glad we are seeing a calm collective response, we need to get the right blocks in place to re-build the squad.

     

     

    Hail Hail

    Same page on that , Bobby.

     

     

    I remember the nauseating tales of lynching in the deep South and how the arrival of M.L.K. on the scene motivated us all in protest.

     

     

    One of the anthems was ” We shall not be moved ” , taken up by Tims on the arrival of Jock and by the civil rights movement in Ireland…………..Burntollet bridge.

     

     

    Niteall.

    Now one really has to postulate on the origins of the term “Moon Shot”

     

     

    Smiley thing

     

     

     

    Braw.

  6. Gents (and ladies),

     

     

    Could any of you point me in the right direction of the definitive reference for events involving Celtic, Club/Team/Fans throughout the 1966/67 season?….apart from the Celtic Wiki that is.

     

     

    Many thanks in advance!

    Sorry! Yes I did see your post yesterday. Meant to acknowledge you.

     

     

    It would be good if we could source film of the incident. I am sure those that hadn’t seen it would find it as funny as I did at the time. Although it has to be said that was after initial annoyance that the Huns getting beat had been interrupted ;)

     

     

    Hail Hail

  8. Saw the 4 young players released.

     

     

    I was sad to see Blair Kidd was one of them. When my son started school in P1, Blair was in P7 and was assigned as my boy’s “Buddy.” Blair was brilliant with him and my boy still remembers him to this day with fond memories.

     

     

    My son is the P7 now and life moves on, hope Blair finds a new club and does well.

    To the guardian ad.

  11. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    Has the ad been hit by a legal challenge?

     

     

    Seriously?

     

     

    Could be interesting if it came from Hampden.

    BMCUW,

     

    I’m just reading the last sentence of Paul67’s article.

  14. Canamaler & BMCWP

     

     

    Last line relates to a story regarding Herald Group that was on here and then WC took it off.

     

     

    Not related to Guardian story.

     

     

    That’s how I see it.

    Think that is more on why the WC post on the heralds reasons for not running ad was removed.

     

    till later all

    IT’S TIME TAE START A LIST OR TWO!

     

     

    Start wi a list if the misdemeanours of the huns and the SFA,and go from there.

    Five stars,naw.

     

     

    Trophies,ye can keep the Petrofac one and the diddy leagues.

    Thought Scepovic was getting on with Getafe? ( see what I did there )

     

     

    We need Scepovic to Getafe the payroll and ontae the Getafe payroll. If you see what I mean.

  24. glendalystonsils on

    I see more of these ‘Celtic and Rangers(sic) tracking Midfielder/winger/striker’ stories appearing every day.

     

     

    Two points:

     

     

    1. Any player Sevco are genuinely tracking is not good enough to be of interest to Celtic

     

     

    2. Any player Celtic are genuinely tracking will be far too good for Sevco.
