There’s only one John Guidetti


I’m beginning to believe some of the ‘Unseen..’ paranoia that goes around town myself.  Absolutely delighted, and a bit surprised, Fifa ratified John Guidetti’s transfer to Celtic.  He’s a player we have tried to buy for three consecutive summer transfer windows; this guy has been watched, courted and pursued by Celtic, Feyenoord, Ajax and no doubt a whole lot more.

Since his marquee season in Rotterdam he’s come through debilitating illness but is now healthy, if in need of some match sharpness.

He is ineligible for the Europa League group stage but will be available for the round of 32 through to the final in Warsaw.

There was a real meeting of minds between player and club on Monday; he liked the way we went about our business and people at the club were impress with his personality.  Apparently, he’s another “strong character” to add to the others who have arrived at the club over the last week.

If only we had a song for him….

  1. Sounds from that Youtube vid that his name is pronounced….Gweedetti….as in Gweedore. A Donegal connection!

  2. Paul 67



    Why can’t he play in Europa? If the signing is okay and completed in time should he not be able to be part of Europa squad?




  3. 16 roads - Celtic über alles... on

    1 European Cup.



    13 League Titles.



    9 Scottish Cups.



    7 League Cups.



    Hail Caesar.

  5. It’s amazing how far Peter’s reach is these days, with Opus Dei, the Jesuits, the Knights of Malta, the Swiss Guard, the Legion of Mary, the AOH and the Women’s Institute.

  6. Paul see my post at end of last blog. P.S. I claim the record of being the slowest typist on the blog and I have no doubt I have had more posts on finished blogs than anyone. I don’t care I am just thrilled we have got this lad, I never felt so good about a signing since Craig Bellamy.

    Superb news not a fan of loan signings. But we need all the help we can get.



    Surely Deila will play 2 up front know.

  8. I think the PL haters are on to something. If that’s him trying to worm his way out of bringing in 2 strikers, he has made a complete hash of it. Can he not get anything right?

    “Paul, You took a bit of undeserved stick at the start of this blog. I would just love if you started a new article and confined it to 6 letters. GIRFUY. That would tell them. I know you can’t actually do it as some guy somewhere would pick up on it. You might find a more coded way of getting the same message across.”




    How about:-













  12. A Swede with an Italian name playing in Scotland.


    Some may even say “For an Irish team,” but I certainly couldn’t.

  13. P67:



    Great news and yes I have told anybody that would listen we have tried to sign him for some time.



    Disappointed he ain’t eligible for EL as UEFA seem to have him listed.



    I hope we can make it permanent if he proves his worth.



    Welcome to the Club John, we have now got two Strikers that have a proven track record in scoring goals.



    Keep the Faith!



    Hail Hail!

  14. CELTIC have completed the signing of Swedish internationalist John Guidetti on a season-long deal from Manchester City.


    And the highly-rated striker joins hot on the heels of Serbian hitman Stefan Scepovic, handing the Scottish champions a double boost as the campaign resumes following the current international break.


    The 22-year-old moved to the Blues as a 16-year-old and impressed in their youth ranks, before heading out on a series of temporary moves.


    He enjoyed a particularly profitable period at Dutch giants Feyenoord, averaging almost a goal a game and bagging three hat-tricks in a prolific season.


    And now the new Bhoy is relishing making an impact for Ronny Deila’s men over the coming campaign.

    Hope so.

    Haven’t felt so youthful in years. Old bassas sticking eggs in car radiators years before I was even hatched!

  20. Hooptastic, Uefa list needed to be submitted by Tuesday and he was not available for us to register by then. No dispensation pending the Fifa ruling was allowed.



    Just Another Tim, yes, confirmed by Celtic that he’s only available for last 32 through to final.



    corkcelt, honestly, no need. Don’t want to over-analyse people, but……..



    Let them work things out.
