All about the transfer of Ki Sung Yueng, today.
Frankly, if the player has made it clear he has no intention of coming back to the club then sending him to Wales as punishment for a shed load of cash with “don’t let the door hit you on the way out” ringing in his ears is a damn fine deal.
Don’t get me wrong. I loved Ki the footballer. He was a player we don’t seldom see in Scotland. He treated the ball as a lady. But £6.3m plus £1.5m in add ons and a 15% sell on clause is a deal that would have had me driving him to Wales myself.
Pistol Pete? Mair like Shotgun Pete who happened to have pictures of Huw Jenkins Wife in a compromising position to seal that one. One of his best. Up there with getting Sunderland to give us money for Ross Wallace and Stan Varga.
What shall we do with the money? Well, the internet children think that we should blow the cash on a centre back and a striker. WE NEED TO COMPETE IN EUROPE is the cry. Bolloxs to that. We aren’t going to sign anyone of the quality that will see your local bookmakers shit their pants and change their Champions League/ Europa League odds.
It also seems that our fat cat investors have took their pie aided lard arses elsewhere on a Saturday leaving us with a massive blackhole in our finances. See, us commoners have backed the team with hard cash. The fat cats haven’t.
Let’s see what the games against Van Helsingburg bring. Champions League or Europa. No matter what the majority of the cash should be stuff in a big large mattress for a rainy day and we should turn to the kids and continue with our buy them cheap, sell them high policy.
That may sound like a grumpy board apologist who has swallowed a big load of Armageddon talk. Maybe but….I would rather not halt the progress of youngsters or jump the shark with our policy with placing a big waged loan signing in front of them who does nothing but tread water or a pension topping fucked knee’d damaged goods veteran.

We won against Van Helsingburg. I know that is a very low key opening to what was a fantastic victory but I get all HYPER HERE in the match report. Please read as it was lost in all the back slapping and copy in pixel form.
ITV/STV showed the game. STV had Joe Jordan and Chris Sutton on the panel. It was like an episode of Grumpy Old Men and they were bemoaning the ever decreasing size of Snickers. If one of them cracked a smile I reckon it would have spelt the end any Tv’s with an old cathode tube.
ITV had their big hitters out. Chiles, Lee Dixon and Gareth Southgate played the condescending snotty Sassenachs while Gordon Strachan played the good man fighting Celtic’s cause.
Watch the wee man put Gareth – the big nosed penalty missing failed manager horse face – Southgate, Adrian – fuck your marriage over as you believe a burd that can pull Frank Lampard would fancy a fat faced plummed brummie – Chiles and Lee – I had to go to ITV so I didn’t club Alan Shearer to death with Gary Linekars head – Dixon right in their place and tear them a new one.
I’m warming to Strachan.

The good folk at STV done some number crunching and told us that Celtic would make £14m min from the Champions League group stages if we qualified. Maybe that explains why we are ‘ground sharing’ Firhill (for thrills) this season that will see the our U20’s and our Next Gen games take place there.
Sorry but bugger me with George Osbournes castle but in this age of austerity why aren’t we playing these games at CP and keeping the revenue for ourselves? Surely that would stop us wearing black socks and releasing an unwanted and seldom worn 3rd kit in the very near future?
Our are we just doing it to help the 3rd Oldest club in Glasgow even though their fans think we are rickett ridden bigots?

Worst tweet you will EVER read.
Forgive me for coughing up my breakfast but what in the name is the above tweet about? Do they really think that signing a splenetic surly balding vulgar bulgar who would be on the weekly wage akin to some SPL clubs whole wage budget would have us coming back in our droves? Are they that stupid?
What’s Michael Owen doing if that is the case?
Still, 99.9% of twitter in the knows really know as much as my dead goldfish. Anyone that believes their tweets please leave your bank account number, sort code and pin number in the comment section below as I need to borrow some money.

We play Inversenkie tomorrow and most of the focus has been on who isnt fit. Here’s the fact file.
In other news Lance Armstrong has decided not to contest that he is a cheating steroid using hoodwinking blagger. He is no longer 7 time Tour De France winner and I feel for all had those little yellow bands who must feel violated this evening.
I hear though The Lance Armstrong is claiming that the 7 Tour De France wins are actually his.
How was your week?
