We knew that it was going to end with this result. They wander through the door of Lennoxtown, get a training kit, get some training, a sauna, a medical then they leave without signing contract.
I liken trials to those high street shop sales when then just stick all their old stock on racks and it takes you ages to find something nice in a medium. It seems like Celtic have a wedding to attend but are not going to get measured for a suit. They are hoping to pick something up in a sale.
The goalkeeping situation is nearly at critical level. Cool Hand Luka has proved himself to meet the basic good shot stopper criteria but lacks that presence. Another trial is muted for the Belgian that doesn’t do trials. Another bid for Double F seems on the cards.
The striker situation is more complicated as we have a wealth of numbers but none bar the top two picks will get anywhere near double figures a season.
The tedium of Bellamy continues. I feel like screaming just give up to the management and assorted suits. Too much money for too little return. He automatically becomes a first pick for his wage. He automatically becomes a problem.
Shane Long? With West Ham already looking to make him the focal point of Sam Walrus Puss hopeful long balls by offering a wedge out our league, with assorted add-ons and not strap on’s as you might expect from their owners., makes this a pipe dream.
My bet is that we don’t sort this out until the end of August.
