Celtic FC

Before I get into the two games played this week, there is no way to get past the transfer that Celtic completed yesterday. Kris Commons signed from Derby County on a three and a half year deal, there is an option of an extra year and the fee is reported to be around £500,000.

There is no ill feeling towards Kris and I wish him all the best in the hoops, but I find it very hard to see the point in this signing, may as well have taken the £500,000 and set it on fire. This adds absolutely nothing to the squad and just congests the midfield places to bursting point.

Good Evening Everyone...Hail Hail!!!

This is my first post here so I thought I would start by introducing myself, didn't want just to start posting without giving you an idea who I was and why you should believe anything I say.

My name is Andrew Gibney born about 13 miles from Celtic Park in a small town called Cumbernauld. After seven glorious seasons sitting in the main stand at Parkhead (time perfectly with Larsson's arrival and departure) I moved to Leeds, England for education reasons.

Six years I have been in Yorkshire now, and it looks like I'm here for good. Many a good night has been spent in the Wim Jansen Celtic Supporters Club on Regent Street. My subscription to Sky and ESPN means I rarely get down there any more.
