Wed 13 the Aug marks the real start of Celtic s domestic season ,to say I’ve missed watching the Celts is an understatement,yeah we had the world cup,Wimbledon and the commonwealth games but nothing quite beats the feeling when a new season gets close, it will be exciting to see who will provide the real challenge to Celtics quest for a fourth title in a row, Fergus McCann will be guest of honor to unfurl the league championship flag for 2013-14 season….
Who better than the man who saved celtic all those yrs ago he should be received like a god, I don’t joke when I say that had it not been for the guy wee call the bunnet, I might not be writing this post today about Glasgow Celtic…
Fergus McCann was an honest genuine businessman who had a love for the club of course he invested money and expected a return, he got this 5 yrs down the road after the takeover…he maintained after his 5 year plan he would leave, he did so and stayed true to his word when he left he took his return on his investment and left Celtic with a solid work model a top class stadium and a decent team on the pitch, he will always be thought of fondly by the Celtic fans…
By kick off time it’s expected we will have a few new players in place. The pacy winger Alexander Tonev from Aston villa on a 1 year loan deal,Celtic will cover his wages. With the option for a permanent deal next summer..just hearing as i write that Aston Villa winger Aleksandar Tonev has completed a loan move to Celtic for the 2014/15 season.
Elsewhere Celtic are poised to sign Jason Denayer from Manchester City.
The hoops have been in contact with City and are also believed to be interested in Matthias Bossaerts as Ronny Delia seeks to strengthen his first team squad.both are defenders….
The deadline for signing, and registering, players for the Champions League qualifier with Maribor was at 11pm Celtic Park time tonight. One further signing can be added 48 hours before the first leg tie in Slovenia.
Jason Denayer and Matthias Bossaerts
Also Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey could be on his way to join Scottish giants Celtic as a replacement for Fraser Forster who has left to join Southampton.I’d like to wish Fraser Forster the great Wall all the best at premiership club Southampton,having left in a 10 million pound deal..
In his time with celtic the big goalkeeper turned in some fantastic performances,becoming a record breaker in the process,3. League titles and a Scottish cup sit proudly in the big goalies trophy cabinet, im sure he will progress to become a top keeper in England, all the best big guy….
Up first wed. Is St Johnstone in Perth season openers sometimes have a feast of goals and I’m predicting a 3-2 win for the hoops, maybe a few new faces in the team too so it’s exciting to see how wee will line up, the Perth side will provide a stern test I’m sure, but celtic have to show the travelling support that the recent hammering in Europe home and away is out there system…
Sun. 17th Aug sees..us return to paradise and it’s sure going to be good to be back to the old stadium, Dundee utd come visiting on flag day and Jackie McNamara s young side has some of the scotlands finest young talent in its ranks…celtic will definitely want to show a packed celtic park who the champions are, and lay down a marker to dundee utd who will be one of the main challengers this year..
Hot on the heels of those 2 league games our 2 nd chance game comes around against Maribor this will be a very tough 2 legs of football,the mere fact celtic had this second chance is due to some really good luck, totally outplayed home and away by polish side legia warsaw hammered 6-1 in the champions league 2nd qualifier…if Celtic can win here it’s into the draw for the group stages, if this is achieved they can think themselves very lucky..
Here’s to another successful season hope everyone’s enjoying the blog and checking out the pages at the top of the blog as well,im always looking for new ideas so any suggestions to improve things is very welcome, il leave a suggestions from below or feel free to comment..Also share on Twitter Facebook etc much appreciated…
