Comment on Two wrongs and a right by jimbo.

One of the problems TRFC have is that everyone and their dug know who their target signings are and when it falls through they are left with egg on their faces.  I don’t know how this becomes common knowledge in the first place.  Is it the club itself? leaks to press?

I can’t comment on other clubs but so far as Celtic are concerned they make serious efforts to do their transfer dealing under the radar.  Loads of speculation in the media of course but mostly rubbish.  Of course you can’t hide when a player comes in for a trial but Celtic’s stock reply is ‘we are just having a look’.  And sometimes agents will put it about that Celtic are interested to hype it up to other interested clubs.

But I couldn’t tell you the amount of times players are sprung on us and I have to immediately google him to get some info.

Seems to me that too much PR spin to appease the fans and make the club appear to be richer than they are is not a good thing. 

It’s being reported today they are interested in a NI player (Evans) currently at Blackburn.  Reputedly on £18k per week.  Honestly you couldn’t make it up.  What’s the chances of them landing a player on those wages (if true!). 21

Two wrongs and a right
The silence from Hampden tonight is deafening.  This news broke at about 4pm.  I am surprised it has taken Hamilton 5 days to make this announcement.  There has to be story there.

But the organisers of this competition are the SFA.  Why have they not come out with a credible explanation in 3 and a half hours?   Maybe it takes longer than that to create an excuse which covers them in glory? 

Really pathetic.

I recommend Lord Nimmo Smith to look into this fiasco.

Well that’s put the cat amongst the budgies.   Can’t wait to hear what Regan has to say. Banned from the cup next season?

Two wrongs and a right
Wow, Hamilton refuse to host the EK V Celtic match!

I’ll be sorry to see Stuart Armstrong go.  He has the best haircut in Scotland. 

But at least he will still be available to turn out for Scotland.  He would be one player plying his trade in England I wouldn’t mind coming up. 

And Robertson of course.

I was too kind with Lee Wallace, he had one game in 2016.

9 caps for Scotland since 2009. 

Club captain too! Maybe he should have had a word with Broonie.

jingso.jimsie, if I’m being brutally honest, none.  We are well covered in all positions without the need to go there.  They used to give Lee Wallace a game now and again to make them feel relevant.  But that’s out the window now.

For goodness sakes one of the best players in Scotland, Kieran Tierney, has to play out of position for a game!

And plenty of other players from all over Scotland were being ignored in Strachan’s fascination of players playing in England.

I wouldn’t read too much into those recent friendlies, for obvious reasons.  The squad is there to put up a better showing.  It’s all down to the ability of the manager now, that’s my worry.

Btw, Look at Iceland.  If anyone is interested look up ‘Football in Iceland’ on Wiki.  – ‘Modern Developments’.  It’s fascinating.  Do you know 1 in 500 of Icelanders have a UEFA coaching badge?  In England it’s 1 in 10,000.
