Celtic Targets/Transfers

Being a cynical sod, I never get to involved in transfer window threads because of the mad claims around targets for our club, great start on day 2, not in the know so don't have a Feckin clue who will sign, the only thing I would ask is that the club don't go overboard on loans, try and get another couple of players who are ready, or almost ready to play in the first team on full time contracts.

Is there any way that this blog could do a summary of confirmed ins and outs. I get up each morning and am swamped by rumours and "hope to complete" deals and failed medicals. It can be difficult in a vastly different time zone to keep a handle on rapidly changing information.
It's not any easier here, Fis. So many clickbait sites and shit-stirring meeja. It's easier for sports churnalists to feed us contrivances than do any actual journalism. All they are these days are gossip mongers and groupies for the zombies.

As Shamrock said it’s the same deal here. I go into the cat who is hanging on to the tin roof upside down mode. I know that of all the rumours, alleged interest claimed that the vast majority are works of fiction created by people who have as much access to what’s going on as my cat. Who incidentally, lives the life of a princess and me as an indentured slave. No hanging precariously from shaky rafters for her.

It’s a time when emotions, fears and expectations rise and plummet to their extremes on an hourly basis.

In short, fucking torture.

We all know what needs to be done. I am even more at a disposition because I actually believe that if we get it right, then qualifying for the CL every year is within our grasp. This raises the bar and pressure I put on myself and usually ends up with me feeling that the belief I have is not shared by those charged with making it happen.

These last four windows have been an absolute let down in meeting my hopes for too many reasons to go into, but are well documented.

I always thought this window had to be different for a number of reasons. Sevco thinking they can topple us. They won’t, only we can throw ourselves from the winners podium. But, ask any Celtic fan older than 20 and they will tell you we have form at this. Too many times we have been in a position to move out of reach and stalled.

This year we all know what us at stake. Not just 10, but CL qualification that’s resources would at a stroke kick Sevco into touch, so much money is involved. That makes the window fraught. Every rumour has you either hoping we get them or scratching your head at how could this guy help us.

Like you, we all wake up and for me I stretch for my phone hoping to see a message from our WhatsApp group of fellow Tim’s, brothers and pals, for a message that says we are going to sign a good player. Most mornings there is nothing and it’s like being a hamster in a wheel. Our emotions are running like mad but we don’t move.

I have been delighted to see us move more decisively as anyone will tell you, we normally take an age to get players in. This approach seriously fucks with our mental well-being.

I had this message this morning that immediately raised both my hopes of getting him and the fear of not. It’s just one of those times when you are at the mercy of situations out with our control. It’s a rollercoaster of hope, excitement, fear and impatience.

I hate it. Every time my phone beeps my heart rate increases, most times it’s a case of nothing to see. So you calm down and wait for the next one. I sometimes wish I could be put into a state of suspended animation until it’s over.

There’s no way to guess what’s a goer or not. We are all in the same boat. I am however a million miles better that last summer. That doesn’t mean it’s an easy ride. It never is. Sometimes I wish I didn’t care so much. But that’s as futile a hope as wishing my cat would fetch my slippers.

Just hang in there. Anyway here’s what I got sent this morning.
