There’s only one John Guidetti

1256

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….

    I thought the convoluted argument that defeated Ahmad’s application was that by ring fencing money owed in the event of insolvency, he would effectively make them insolvent.

     

     

    I dont think that any judgement relied on share issues etc.

     

     

    If the same argument is applied as previously, Ahmad must surely lose again???

    Khan’s had no better time to get his money! the fact they need the share issue to survive to December/January is surely enough for a court to decide in his favour.

    I’m surprised you haven’t read it already.

     

     

    Not that it would make any difference. That’s the point. For nats it wouldn’t make any difference how bad the economy would be. That’s not important. What’s important is to get Scotland out of the UK. That’s the goal, the only one that matters, everything else is secondary.

    Good man, because when it’s all over, regardless, we’re going to have to go back to being one big happy family. I’ve a feeling we’re going to need each other.

  5. Alloa Athletic, according to Jim Spence at the BBC, are about to announce a six figure sponsorship for the renaming of their ground, Recreation Park. Armageddon, eh?

  7. I believe the last judge’s argument was that football finances were cyclical and, although Sevco might at times be strapped, it would only be temporary.

     

     

    The board’s last statement however suggested that if things didn’t go their way with this £4m share thing, then the wheels would mostly likely fall off the old cycle.

    It’s the norm.

     

     

    Every UK General Election, the most important factor is to be elected into government, “That’s the goal, the only one that matters, everything else is secondary” por cierto

    It was actually the European elections that finally convinced me that the Scottish electorate have a significantly different view point than the English one. UKIP garnered 30% of the vote in England, 6% up here.

     

     

    I spotted Margaret Curran stating on the other day that the best way to get rid of the Tories was to vote Labour. If every single voter in Scotland had voted Labour in the last General Election we’d still have ended up with the current coalition.

     

     

    A brief look at the map suggests that Labour could have won every seat North of the line connecting the Mersey and the Humber and maybe still be have less seats than the Con-Dem.

     

     

    The Westminster parliament just doesn’t feel democratic to me anymore it entirely reflects the views of the South East of the country and the current proposals for reforming it (agreed in principle 2012, due for debate again in 2018) will only make that worse.

  10. Red Ed Miliband was in Scotland yesterday shooting the old ‘ When I am Prime Minister after the next election ‘ line.

     

     

    He is almost as delusional as those who come on here spouting about THEM being deid.

     

     

    at the present time, Westminster’s Tories are in a no lose situation

     

     

    Scotland votes NO and Cameron is hailed as the saviour of the Union and sweeps tp victory.

     

     

    Scotland votes YES and Milliband is left to start an election campaign forty Scottish Labour MPs down.

    If what you say is true he will be gone from Celtic in the summer. So we can look to one domestic campaign from him. Along with the other man city boy. We could be Going into next seasons champions league weaker than this season.

    Just clicked on the Johnny Thomson vid and my head jumped back nearly 50 years to my auld uncle Neilly.

     

    It was his Song at family gatherings.

     

    My God sometimes I relly miss those that have went before us in wee moments like that.

    Just came across this – are the figures quoted below correct,?? Seems somewhat incongruous to complain about the lack of representation if these figures are correct. A wee bit like the Tories in England.

     

     

    “Who says we would get the Government we vote for if we get independence? We do not have the Scottish Government we voted for. Only 22.9% of those eligible to vote, voted for the SNP at the last Scottish election, the other 77.1% did not”

    And they are elected for a fixed tern, judged on their record, and be made to pay the price.

     

     

    That doesn’t apply with the referendum.

     

     

    It doesn’t matter what egregious lies you tell, home many people you con, if you fool enough of them to reach your goal there’s no going back.

     

     

    And it doesn’t matter how bad it might be, for a nat, it would be a price worth paying.

     

     

    See the difference?

    There is as much chance of Milliand being PM than there is of me being the Grand master of the OO.

     

    :))))

     

    Till later all wee mhan to get ready for nursery time.

  16. Frank Ryan’s Whiskey – that stat is 100% true, there was a 50.4% turnout for the last Holyrood election.

     

     

    Democracy innit

  17. Frank Ryan’s Whiskey

     

     

    That would be a valid argument IF Scotland had compulsory voting like Australia.

     

     

    The system in the UK and in Scotland is based on whoever turns up to vote. You cannot count those who did not.

    Am I remembering correctly, did you say you lived in Bielefeld?

     

     

    I used to live there about 20 odd years ago

    That’s a disingenuous statistic though. How many of the 77.1% voted? Those that didn’t can’t blame anybody but themselves. Furthermore it includes people that if they had voted would have voted SNP. Remember the SNP got so many votes they achieved an overall majority from a voting system that in normal circumstances would actually prevent that.

     

     

    In an independent Scotland we will have a government that reflects the voting preference of the Scottish electorate. Right now the Westminster parliament doesn’t.

    1. The bookies think Labour will win the next election. The nats are hoping the Tories win. No change there then.

     

     

    2. Interesting you think that in the event of a yes vote Scotland will be out of the UK before the next general election. It shows how much of a grasp you have of what’s going on.

    Australia doesn’t have compulsory voting.

    Why is it different for the No side Ernie? They want to remain part of the UK. It doesn’t matter how bad it might be, for them it’s a price worth paying.

    I wonder just how many people in elected office, Westminster, Holyrood or local government polled over fifty percent of those on electoral register? Not too many I imagine.

     

     

    If people do not use their vote, that is their choice.

     

     

     

    Have long advocated compulsory voting.

    “You cannot count those who did not.”

     

     

    Strangely enough in 1979 the Westminster Government did count those who did not vote, including dead people, they were deemed as a NO! por cierto

    The matter of Scotland’s status at the time of the next election is currntly under discussion. With some Mps calling for it to be delayed.

     

     

    As for the Nats wanting a Tory victory. I don’t have clue.

    UKIP is to the English voter what the SNP is to the Scottish voter.

     

     

    It allows those who ‘urnae happy’ but don’t have the wit to work out why they ‘urnae happy’ to vote for something that offers an easy, simple, solution for everything that makes them ‘urnae happy’.

     

     

    They are both nationalist parties and that’s what nationalism offers. A simple solution for simple people.

     

     

    So it’s no surprise that UKIP got comparatively fewer votes in Scotland than they did in England. The surprise is that they got so many.
