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….

    Not raining on your parade, I just like to join in. Everyone’ll have one.



    If Celtic want to shift a few thousand extra tickets for Sunday, promise fifteen minutes from JG. He’d only need to show a few tricks in a walk-on cameo.

    Catch you when you get your day-pass for the BV. :-)

  5. Hi tony D. I think you must have missed my earlier post. Was wondering why you still haven’t answered my question. Do you think I am a Hun?

  6. So the ipox stadium will be renames the Ashley Sports Direct Arena? Work it out yersells. :-))



    Didn’t get any replies to my question earlier on the last article, did any other ST holder who bought the 3 game package for the EL group games get told it will be on the ST. No tickets sent out. I don’t mean free on the ST, but your ST will be activated for entry. I find this strange. I paid for the tickets.

    The advert for the shop you hint at used to have a lady patting her derrière indicating saving money in her pocket



    I can’t imagine some of the zombettes doing that … Bigass monsters that they are

  12. Can anybody tell me how many tickets Celtic supporters have been allocated officially for the EL game against Casino Salzburg on 18th.I am presently in Salzburg in a bar called the Shamrock.Guy behind bar was asking how many Celtic supporters would be travelling.Last game for Salzburg was against Malmo 300 in pub.Cheers.

    maybe Aberdeen game first outing to club.





    longtime no post, hope to see u soon, tell yer da I need a couple of lifts to cheer me up….8)

  15. Weefraethe Tim,



    I got my EL package today. I was able to have my own seat but the lady serving me told me that tickets were being sold on a first come, first served basis. My seat was still available. I don’t know if that helps.



    I was offered tickets for the game on Sunday and the Hearts League Cup match. I had to decline both. I got the impression that sales for both were sluggish.

  16. ....PFayr supports WeeOscar on




    Interesting list



    Apart from Sammi …all are improvements …inc Gordon if he remains fit

  17. Far too much talk of THEM and THEIR problems.



    Concentrate on our own shortcomings.



    There seems to be an alarming atmosphere that signing two guys late on Monday has suddenly solved all our problems.



    PL and DD must be delighted.

  18. parkheadcumsalford



    I presume your a ST holder. I never got my own seat, in the main stand rear, but still got the main stand. Are they closing the top tiers, if you are a ST holder was your ST activated or are you getting paper tickets sent through. I cannie get ma hied roon this. :-(



    Weefra HH praying to Wee Oscar.

  19. Yess we got him. Well done Celtic and kill me if I’m wrong the sfa- as far I know they followed procedure!!!!!!

  20. TBJ says Wee Oscar Knox is in heaven with the angels on




    You would need hands like big John Fallon .. But I doubt he would dirty his on a Hun bum ;)

  21. Summa of Sammi,



    Is a rough translation: Guidetti may prove as good a signing for Celtic as Larsson but he won’t replace the Greek Ghod. Sounds more like Summa of Sammi than Wim Jansen to me. Either way, if he contributes anything approaching what Henrik or Gorgios have done, he’ll do.

    For every fiver Celtic spend we could name Ibrox five times.








    IMHO I think Celtic must have come close to being in the same situation that the R****** are now in. Scary thought.

  23. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Welcome John Guidetti and good luck to you.



    Get Kris Commons signed up now.



    Guidetti and Tonev do have a history of injury problems.



    Guidetti and Berget may not even be around come January.



    I have to say though our recruitment department is amazing. Only they could have controlled to absolute precision our recruitment which looked like a chaotic shambles including delving into the human slave trade for an evening with Scepovic. A 6 month loan signing for a sick note is more than compensation for the tens of millions lost by being unable to score against Maribor at Celtic Park having been already been given a get out of jail free card. Bloody lot of moaners on here.




  24. I have no idea whether Guidette will be a good signing for us, but it is heartening and exciting to see how eager so many of you are for his signing to be ratified……even IF it is so you lot can sing the Cadette song again!



    I am as ignorant of him as i am of Scepovic, but do you know what…….this line from the Serb’s interview is THE thing that has got me excited.
