Who stole Jason?


Delighted for Wales last night but what’s happened to Jason Denayer? Since ending his loan period at Celtic a year ago he’s made 15 starts for Galatasaray. He was hooked on four of those occasions, which is a high percentage substituted for a defender. Gala won their first four league games with Jason in the team but won only once in his final 10 appearances. The point was made to me last night that he looked overweight.

In his 12 months at Celtic he polished his rough edges and established himself as a top performer in the most effective defence we’ve had in years. Manchester City were not prepared to let him return to Celtic as the reckoned he simply wasn’t being stretched.

He signed a new contract at Man City before heading for Turkey, but their new management team are unlikely to promote him to their first team squad. He’s unlikely to have impressed anyone at the Euros and Galatasaray won’t be as keen as Celtic were to have him back.

Is it possible we’re the only ones who know what he’s capable of? I’d have him back tomorrow.

  1. Wouldn’t put too much faith in the SMSM linked Celtic signings few if any knew about Dembele they were too busy with Graham or Fletcher amongst other non scoring strikers.



    I’d be surprised if Scott Sinclair is a real Celtic target his career at 27 is a succession of loans at poorly English clubs.

    Stop looking for stuff that I am writing or thinking that is not there.


    Read my words again.


    I said that I COULD see Pedro baulking at a signing on fee etc


    And yes I agree to a degree with SFTB that we have been treading water till they were in the same div as us.


    We will spend more now than we have the past few seasons, that is a given IMO, it has already started with signing Brendan.



  3. My friends in Celtic,



    I hope Italy and Germany can be as enjoyable as the game last night.



    Its quite hard to be a neutral as I usually favour or bet one team over another. But tonight all I want is a good footie match with the most entertaining team winning.



    I actually think Italy will win, but can they entertain while winning ?



    HH. Glasgow is Green and White.

  4. Don’t. Have a bet on tonight but will go with the Germans after extra time…….shocker eh? Cannot wait for the Italian anthem, a truly great bit of work and inspirational in the extreme.


    I was in Rome recently on Republic day and went down to the parade. All military stuff ,not my usual type of fun, however the most emotional moment was when a platoon of Italian paratroopers marching in unison singing Fratelli d’italia saluted a bunch of veteran paratroopers, all in wheelchairs and many amputees. I confess to being very humbled at that moment. Especially when the crowd joined in the singing


    ” Siam pronti alla morte ,


    L’Italia chiamo! Si!”

    The SMSM trawl through lists of players out of or coming to the end of contracts ,who have any kind of link to BR and hey presto! We are linked with them. Pish and nonsense.

  6. Since 1970, Italy have played Germany in 8 competitive matches, discounting friendlies. Won 4 and drawn 4. I have them to win in extra time, and also on penalties, and to win the Euro at 11/2. Fingers crossed. Hope it’s a good game. Hail, hail.

    And they gave us JAMES McGRORY and Paul McStay…..Braw



    Bhoys now there will be a football lesson….tactic or strategy ???? Lessons are braw…



    We are winning info from the black hole side …..nothing is lost ….think braw things….meeeeeeow…




  8. Mrs TET said that Iceland would beat engerland, she also said that Wales would beat Belgium, she has told me that it will be a Germany v Wales final.


    She could be so wrong, but then again.

  9. I don’t remember Denayer ever playing as a left sided CB for us as he did last night for Belgum?



    Yes he had a mare but there’s no denying he’s a top talent with loads of potential. I would have him back in the Hoops in a heartbeat. A straight choice between Duffy & Denayer? There’s only one winner for me.



    Might be hard to sign Joe Allen & or Robsen-Kanu now after their performances at Euro 2016 but I hope there’s truth to the rumours (With only Dembele in the door so far, perhaps there is). Joe Allen woud be a big improvement on Scott Brown & Kanu has proven what an effective out ball he can be. Both would be huge assets for us, I hope they sign.

    Will give CCB a call on Monday.



    C’mon the Italians!

  11. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    Mon the tallies ….. I think they will get to, and win, the final…..against Wales

  12. Criticism of Jason Denayer is CQN OTT he’s just completed a successful loan period is a very competitive league where he played a lot of games at right back.



    Whether we could get him not whether we want him CSC

  13. Neustadt-Braw on




    Bert you wait a while!!!







  14. I’ve been very impressed by both the teams playing tonight.



    I’m expecting a very good game.



    Germany are excellent at breaking down defences and I think they are deserved favourites but Italy have been a real breath of fresh air and they know how to Win.



    I’m hoping that both teams just go for it and make it a memorable game.




  15. Neustadt-Braw on

    Germany to score first and keep scoring…Brazil plus ….xxxxxx



    Sftb. You have probably a great smile,,,,,,




  16. I hope I don’t put the kiss of death on it. I’m going to record this game.



    Let’s hope Football is the Winner.




  17. Looking forward to a good game…………



    …the good ghuys to win…………………………………..



    *’mon the Tallies…..!*

    Celtic went from August 2001 to February 2008 losing just 1 match in European competition at home. 31 matches.










    Remarkable really.
