The starting gun has went off. Neil Lennon predicts “bedlam” and Martin O’Neill has gushed that “I think Aiden McGeady has the ability to play in the Premier League” and admitting that James Milner fancies becoming the next young English player to get lumped with an unworldly fee that he is not worth.
“James and his agent came to see us before the world cup and intimated that they would like to go.” enlightened O’Neill before murmuring “there is a difference in valuation between the buying club and the selling club.”
Usually that could lead to a problem but not when it the club is dripping in so much oil money that the players only use the club towels once before they are handed out to Manchester’s homeless, unwashed off course. “A compromise of £25m is expected to be reached without difficulty.” reports reflect on and the proceeding carousel on fun with “McGeady and Tottenhams Robbie Keane to Villa and Liam Lawrence from Stoke to Celtic“.
It’s hard not to feel like the tattered old horse on that carousel that needs a lick of paint and some tender loving car to revive it to it’s former glories.
How difficult will Celtic be to deal with? Well, anything upwards of £8m, a case of diet Irn Bru and a set of steak knifes should be enough to entice Celtic to an amicable divorce seeing us getting the money and they can have the kid and the dog at the weekends. We need the money to fund the deals that will see us get that aforementioned lick of paint.
Though Martin reminisces about McGeady playing “against AC Milan in the Champions League at Celtic Park and he was absolutely fantastic” he has not watched Aiden not playing absolutely fantastic against anyone in the last few months and as long as he keeps thinking that Aiden is that player he saw against Milan and he forgets that he once signed Shaun Maloney on the same type on memories.
Lennon, like a magician doing a slight of hand trick, is reportedly “closing in on yet another summer signing” in Biram Kayal a “defensive midfielder” who has been capped 12 times for Israel to blind the support who maybe mourning the loss of the only genuine talent our youth system has produced since Paul McStay and not signing from known sources meaning that we won’t notice that this is the 105th midfielder he has signed in what is termed Strachanitis.
The usual interest from “England, Germany and France” is confirmed by a suit from Maccabi Haifa. “Celtic are not the only club interested in him” he points out while the Green Brigade organise a protest at a possible unlawful occupation of our midfield.
If Kayal unlawfully occupies Scott Brown then the protest my be called off The Diary mole hears.
