So The Village Idiot has “weighed in” on the debate about who Celtic’s best striker of the modern era.
Big deal. I cannot claim to speak for the rest of the support but I would be more than just a little bit surprised if there was a single person in it who had been sitting and waiting with baited breath to hear who this clown thought deserved that accolade.
The press is writing it up as though this geezer had something to say that we wanted – no, something that we needed, to hear. But he doesn’t. His view on this is of no interest to us whatsoever. I know he thinks Dembele is better than Kyogo. I haven’t bothered to investigate his rationale for this, because I just don’t care.
It’s a discussion amongst us. Amongst our fans.
Nobody asked him for his opinion on it and nobody is particularly bothered about what it is.
He has “jumped into the debate” is how one breathless hack has put it. Well he can jump back out of it again because the sign on the door clearly says “No Idiots” on it, and he’s the poster boy for them.
To me the issue is simple. You can tell watching Kyogo that he’s a supreme footballer, and he works hard and gives so much to the team in every match. Not only do I think he’s a better striker than Dembele but I’m on the record as thinking Edouard was as well, and towards the end I considered him a lazy sod and couldn’t wait until we moved him on.
Kyogo is going to score more goals than both of them. He’s going to win more trophies here than they did. He’s going to go on, I hope, to get 100 goals.
And even if you disagree with all of that, the chances are that you’re a Celtic fan and you were actually invited to this debate in the first place. So your opinion means a hell of a lot more in this than his done.
His means … nothing at all.
