Its all done and dusted, everything in the bag and predominantly a trophy won (and not under the team bus, because that is the craze nowadays).
We have slipped and slided through a full season of brilliance in the transfer windows, sheer idiocy off the pitch, complete class on the pitch and a proven manager with a season under his belt to boot.
Over the Clyde we have had a departure as we all know, the archaeli of mordor (not taggart) has left the building and has now left the lunatics in charge of the asylum. This will surely be in our favour when the new season comes.
Upon this news of him leaving I have one last present for the manager we all loath so much: -
So the ‘legned’ finally packed up his troubles in his old kitbag and walked into the retirment home known as ‘punditry’.
In other news, and I know it is early so forgive me but, who will we be linked to this summer? I have found a few chaps which are free agents / out of contract that Lenny may call upon here is the list of these free and available happy chappys: -
David Vaughan – We have already been linked to this attacking midfielder come striker in the last transfer window and it is a high possibility that if Lenny is looking to strengthen these parts of the team, it is more than likely Lenny may call on him again to see if a deal can be struck. That’s why I rate this as a high possibility free transfer.
Chances of signing him – 60 to 70% chance
Matthew Upson – Another great defender and would seal our defence up and offer great experience. He is another leader and is a Lennon type of player. He could offer us so much on the pitch and has the capabilities to influence others around him, its what we lack in certain areas when others are not available. Chances are EPL clubs will be sniffing after him so we may be down the list for him even if we go for him. Lenny should have a ‘ganders’ anyways and have a bash at signing him.
Chances of signing him – 30 to 50% chance
Michael Owen – The former England international has been round the block a few times now and even though he is available and can score goals when given the chances, he may not want a trip to the SPL. We have signed Dion Dublin and Ian Wright in the past who did a job but will Owen fancy a dabble in Dundee on a cold winters evening? I don’t thinks so.
Chances of signing him – 10 to 30% chance
Sebastian Larsson – Great technical midfielder with a wand of a boot. He has set pieces in his locker and does ghost forwards when needed. He also dons the number 7 jersey, Is there enough space in the history books for another Larsson? Outside chance we could get him possibly, but he may want a mid-tier EPL club to offer him something before considering us.
Chances of signing him – 20 to 40% chance
Miroslav Klose – German internationalist striker has been out of sorts at his league club and wants a move away. He will most certainly be looking for one last pay day so chances are he will want champions league football and a hefty pay packet. He would look nice in the hoops and especially more scoring against the gers but it is highly unlikely that we could afford his pay packet.
Chances of signing him – 0 – 10% chance
Jay Bothroyd – Now this lad can play. I have watched his rise to the top closely even from his Serie A days. He has always been confident and has finally found his feet. Our links to Cardiff with the Ledley transfer and the fact Bellamy may give the lad good advice, gives heed that Celtic could be a very wise choice for Jay Bothroyd. He could fit into our attacking plans comfortably and would offer pace and power, plus a great alternative to turning to Sammy when we need ‘that something different’.
Chances of signing him – 50 to 80% chance
John Carew – Great big man striker, could capitalise on the SPL style and would reep the benefits of crosses from Maloney, Forrest, Izzy and the likes.He can stick the ball in the net and is not scared to put himself about. Lenny may look at him.
Chances of signing him – 40 to 60% chance
Now enough of that transfer mullarky. To lighten the mood I have found a great deal of celtic videos courtesy of a few celts spread across YouTube. Some of these videos you may have seen, some you may not. So sit back relax get comfy and enjoy these few videos which round off what a great season we have had -
That my fair Celts is a wrap from me for the season 2010 / 2011.
