Might be talking out my arse with this one. Spotted big erik out for dinner with a guy that looked a lot like Delany. Didn't get a good look though. Any Glasgow sightings?

He had a pic on twitter earlier this week saying his mate was over. He plays for some lower league team possibly was him.


2.) 14 Aug 2016 21:41:05
Ah well. That adds up then. They were talking in thier native tongue I think. I don't own that rosetta stone cd so my Danish is a tad rusty :)


3.) 14 Aug 2016 22:02:27
0B1 or anyone else. Do you know who the player was that was through for a visit? Few pics I scanned through some looked like Delaney? I'm no Chris spivey :)


4.) 14 Aug 2016 22:15:59
Vito Hammershoy-Mistrati probably misspelled but it's his best mate he says. Plays in Danish 1st division.


5.) 14 Aug 2016 22:55:52
One and the same mate.


6.) 14 Aug 2016 22:56:25
Is he any good? 😅.


7.) 14 Aug 2016 23:04:44
Spoilsport Delaney would have been better.


8.) 14 Aug 2016 23:05:51
Would really like this delaney guy. Seems a quality player. Any1 know more about him?


9.) 14 Aug 2016 23:18:05
The more we post the more he will cost.

Bit of a change of topic but has anyone kept a tab on nesbitt since his move?
All I could see online after a quick searxh was six appearances (wiki) . It's one of the only times I think I've wanted promising senior youth to stay at the club. I don't know the lad but I doubt his heart is in it being away with what's happening now.

{Ed007's Note - Have a read at this:

http://www.celticfc.net/news/11417?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Cheers ed for the link. I'm looking forward to seeing him play for us again.

{Ed007's Note - We've got some fantastic youngsters at the Club just now, the big question is if they can make the step up to the first team. A player like Tierney might turn out to be a once in a blue moon product but we should be consistently producing players capable of performing and dominating at the domestic level, producing players that are good enough for Dundee or St Johnstone helps Scottish football but it doesn't really help Celtic.}


2.) 14 Oct 2016 11:37:50
I am sure I read that almost every team in Scotland had someone who had been in celtics youth system at one point?


3.) 14 Oct 2016 08:41:38
Well it does in the end Ed as it makes the league more competitive so in the long run it will benefit us Ed. Just my opinion though.

{Ed007's Note - So when's that going to happen, when is the end? Since Lennoxtown opened we've had McGeady and now Tierney come through and every other one has went onto become journeymen players, a season here, a season there then a 'big money' move to an English Champoinship team before flopping down there and coming back up the road with their tail between their legs to get back on the Scottish merry go round. There's very few players left Celtic as a youngster that have went on and proved we made a mistake.
If the player isn't good enough for Celtic he's hardly going to help make Kilmarnock title contenders is he?}


4.) 14 Oct 2016 11:58:19
Would you add maloney to the list with mcgeady and Tierney ed?

{Ed007's Note - No.}


5.) 14 Oct 2016 12:33:03
Why not ed?
He's had a better career away from celtic than mcgeady I'd say.

{Ed007's Note - Shaun Maloney left Celtic for Aston Villa in January 2007 - that's a whole 10 months before Lennoxtown opened.}


6.) 14 Oct 2016 12:46:19
I've seen a good number of youngsters over the years trying to break through via the BP Youths, Reserves and now Development Squad and the amount who have reached their peak at that level beggars belief. Out of the current crop I have hope for are Connor Hazard, Sam Wardrop, Joe Thomson, Mark Hill, Calvin Miller and Aiden Nesbitt. I've got my doubts about Jack Aitchison and Tony Ralston but what do I know about youth development that the club's coaches don't see on a day to day basis.

Stengo.


7.) 14 Oct 2016 13:11:32
Andy Robertson was there before moving to queens park. Isam feruz as well but he has not done it yet. But yeah there have not been many.

I think one of the reasons is that managers are under pressure to win games, so don't give many the youngsters a chance. Tierney was lucky as Izzy was making defensive mistakes and mulgrew was injured. This is why I would like to trim squad and only have 2 seniors for each position.

{Ed007's Note - But would Andy Robertson have become the player he is if he had stayed at Celtic? I seriously doubt it, at some point young players need to be given a a shot in the first-team, some of them will surprise us and kick-on and some will surprise us and fail.}


8.) 14 Oct 2016 13:34:54
Can't say that mcgeady was a product of Lennoxtown then either ed007.
He made his first team debut 3 years before it opened.

{Ed007's Note - Fair point.}


9.) 14 Oct 2016 14:53:11
I think we are making the same point, that players need opportunities in the first team to continue developing and it is hard to get them at Celtic.

I would actually like reserve league brought back as that gives players more chance to play against senior players. Would also help managers keep squad players happy and up to speed.


10.) 14 Oct 2016 14:57:30
Jackson Irvine Ed, biggest disappointment for me!

8 weeks after signing for Ross County the Sunday papers were waxing lyrical about him

One season @ County and got a decent move to the championship albeit to the team just promoted but within like Scott Sinclair with us had scored 4 in first five or 5 in 6

In RD's entire tenure we struggled with the CDM position constantly stuck with Efe and there was a boy who could also play CH!

He won't be at Burton long IMHO because he is more defensively minded than forward thinking and still scoring now (y)


11.) 14 Oct 2016 16:30:32
I always think there is something wrong as for years now we have been loaning out excellent youngsters and getting ordinary young players back . We have a major problem as our top youngsters probably need the experience of playing week in week out . Too often players go to smaller clubs and halve way through their loan period they are no longer certain of first team starts .
I suppose just as we normally don't take that well to players who are just on loan, I suppose manager and fans may not be over fond of our players loaned out .
The age our players go at is often an age when they leave home first and the women and the beer may play a bigger role in their life than maybe they should.


12.) 14 Oct 2016 18:28:40
I am friendly with a Burton lad (Derby is his main team) who raves about Irvine. Been Albions best player and regularly scores.


13.) 15 Oct 2016 11:13:28
I watched the youth team against Varceliba and I'm sorry but there was no outstanding talent on show. We produce players for the Dundees, Aberdeenshire and lower level championship teams at best.

Every year we read about this great talent and it never, materialises.

Apart from KT we have produced jack rubbish in over ten years and the current bunch are no better than any I have watched.

The tragic truth is we produce on the whole journeymen for a world dominated by artisans.

The whole project is a shambles. KT the inky player to make a first team position his own in ten years?

Total waste of time and money up until now.

Scotland as a footballing country is now a sad sorry tale of mediocrity and less technical ability than anyone we play against. We might be able to muscle and win but basic skills are woefully absent.

We are good at running about but not much else.


14.) 15 Oct 2016 13:32:03
I must say I agree about Irvine every game I have seen him play he is one of the better players on the park.

As far as I know, being shown again on premier at 7pm tonight.

{Ed007's Note - DCSports is replaying it at 7 too.}

I'll defend nothing and criticism falls on deaf ears. If I was a tad unwell I would of wasted my whole summer refreshing the squad list of the celtic page squad list.
I am now convinced. Join the dots. It's no fun.

After his man city preformance he sounded like he was planning to go back down south to me. As it's been said further up he isn't starting so why would he sign to sit on the bench? I'd not wish it on any celtic player but the only way he will get a good run is if forrest is injured.

I agree with your point jim. We couldn't buy kt but if we had the option of two similar then why not? Lustig and mathews on the right was great when it was available. Kt has enough talent to do a bit past the halfway line and could play further forward and be effective . Right enough it may hamper a tallented lb but there is no doubt in my mind that if we had that option now it would be used regularly. If sinclair wasn't fit it's Roberts and they aren't great defenders. I'd welcome the selection headache. Love izzy but he isn't solid.

I think he would be a great signing. We need a DM, he fits the bill and wants to sign. I can't understand the criticism. Hope you are recovering well old bhoy but what exactly do you want a good dm to do? Against good opposition I'd be quite happy for him to win tackles and keep possession. For the last few years he has played against some great players and has done well in lower teams if you will call them that. I'd still take him if the years were rolled back and he was putting in similar preformances at that age in the spl. Difference is he moved and for a long time was a first 11 player in the epl. It's a no brainer for me if he wants to play here for a deal of say 5m with addons. We have wasted that again and again. Brown limped off with a dead leg the other day (I thought it was worse and I think it is) and I $hat a brick because we still don't have direct cover.

I think we were better, for spells. I think a draw was fair but that last chance missed done me in. We both hit the post and I think the sending off was something that would happen to us usually. It was that last chance that has killed mcgregors time with us. Harsh (but fair) I know but I don't think he will be here after the summer window.

Well said kev 👏
Released youth who is enjoying his football and playing well for his club. No more in it.
Same source original drafted piece included.
"BR allegedly has burrowed through his full x3 artist value sketch pads from b&M (monthly allowance) working and reworking formation ideas, tactics and finances to blood the new lad in for next year. A long term replacement for toure has been quoted around the brass of cp as br would like to mould the young midfielder into a left footed comanding cb.
After shaking the (remainder of the ) barton contract and the kings cellar of ginger bottles valuation met the asking price has been negotiated over instalments and the mighty teddy's have done a heavy hitting scott Allan revenge blow on thier age old rivals. "

Some of those man city players have lightning pace and we were caught high but that's how we had to play to stay in it and press. Your not going to get cb that can defend and match a winger for pace unless you can pay for it. Fair enough they could of reacted quicker/ better but come on mate. Players did well tonight and if we had finished better we could of won.

Motherwell have put in thier game of the season coupled with some of thier best goals of the season. We didn't show up till the second half with 3 form starters out and last year's top scorer ill and we still done it. Big statement today lads.
