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….

  3. Agree entirely with one of the KDS posters and I think these are also Pul’s sentiments:



    “Most excited by Guidetti as I have been for god knows how long – probably since Sutton. He could be pish but i hope he does well enough to want to stay but not too well that he is poached by some championship level pish!”






    proper buzzing…

  4. prestonpans bhoys dam justice for the 5



    He does, incidentally (and nothing against him) but I think Tony Watt may have not been so eager to learn how to play in other phases of play. I’ve nothing to back this, just a feeling.

  5. eddieinkirkmichael,


    only 3 mate could easily have had another,


    used to work near the baker and buy 3 pies for lunch,


    eat one on my way back and tell everyone else I only bought 2

  6. Great news with the signing coming through let’s hope things get better on the park. Now time to concentrate on the footballs. Looking fwd to the dons game let’s hope we can play a bit better.

  7. Alexandra Park is a nice course. Great views over Paradise and the rest of the city too. Really enjoyable on a nice day with a wee beer and puff.

  11. the glorious balance sheet on




    I don`t know for sure the position on the sell-on clause but it was reported that Newcastle were to get a percentage of Celtic`s profit on the sale as opposed to a percentage of the total transfer fee.



    We bought him for £2 million so Newcastle would be due a percentage of £8 million. If we say the percentage due to Newcastle is 20% then that’s £1.6 million taking Celtic`s net profit from the trade in this player to £6.4 million, this being the £10m paid by Southampton minus the £2m we originally paid Newcastle to buy him in 2012, minus the further monies due to Newcastle under the sell-on clause.



    That’s not bad work at all, especially if Craig Gordon stays fit and in form.

  12. It’s good to see all the excitement on here about Guidetti with suggested song lyrics etc., but what about poor old Scepovic?



    He’s the guy who is fit and will be probably playing in the EL games.



    So, come on, what rhymes with Scepovic?

    I’m trying to find out if others have had the same problem. Sincere apologies if you are angered by that. Nuff said.

    aye its a great course,the gully from the medal tees must be one of the


    hardest holes going,dont know when you last played it but the road hole is now just a par 4,blooming monster it is




    It’s been a while but I am sure the road hole was a par 4 originally, I could be wrong though, do you still put your ball in a tube to keep your place or do you book a time like a normal course

  15. Been reading back there and clearly Dalmuir is the course to play.



    What would be the arrangements for booking a game there – can you do that in advance if you don’t live in the area?

  16. What if, only supposition on my part of course you understand, someone else owned the Rangers badge?



    Moreover, what if the use of that image was already a nice little earner for someone other than the two year old club?



    Indeed I would not be surprised if one day it became incorporated into the heraldic crest of Charles of Normandy.



    He wouldn’t……would he?



    Yeah……of course he would.

    your correct. I did not factor in newcastle’s percentage and the possibility of payments over a period of time. I was not suggesting I had knowledge of any financial agreements and that was why my question was directed at Paul and the blog. To see if anyone did.




  23. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family






    Yeah, there’s something to work with there.



    You can see now how all the best songwriters were always off their heads on chemicals! :-)

  24. Kilbowie Kelt will vote YES on

    There you go.



    A man who can’t speak or write the English language, other than in Daphne Broon ‘braw, bricht, moonlicht nicht’ mockery, despite his supposed Honours Degree from McGills, has the effrontery to ask a Celtic blog if WE understand what ‘CIRCUMSTANCES’ are.



    Naw, we dinnae ken, Aristotle.



    Whit the Eff ur they ?


    I’ve sent out an invitation to a coupla dayoooooots to as many people as I could.

    Dalmuir is a terrific course and as it’s a municipal one, I think you can book at least 7 days in advance (maybe even more)… just remember the oxygen masks/cannisters from 13th tee through to the 16th tee (16 plays downhill) and back up the 17th.. make sure you have your will in place too…. apart from that, enjoy :)



    The 3rd hole is a bit of a climb too



    Happy to offer a hole by hole guide if required :)
