Nadir Ciftci impatient to make Paradise debut

Below is from the official Celtic site. Nadir Ciftci turned down Wigan to play for Celtic, how often do we see the opposite happen when a player is doing well at the club and leaves for fame and fortune, for relegation fights and bigger fortunes. This fact shows Nadir really thinks he can do well at Celtic and knows this stage is the biggest he could make so the lad knows his game. He has played against us many times and I think we can all see how this is going to work. Nadir can score goals, hold up play, bring people into play, header a ball!! And be a total pain in the backside, I hope Ronny can coach the silly out of him but keep in mind, kinda like Brown, take the Animal nature out of Scott and you lose the player and his work ethos. We lack height when counter attacking teams, what we have here is a very committed kid ready to become a Celtic legend, I think that is his goal here. He doesn’t strike me as a stupid lad in terms of ‘Career, but off-field issues that happened on-field will be multiplied about 100 times at Celtic, I am sure Ronny, Collins, Broony, Griffiths, Mulgrew etc have sat him down over the last few days and explained all this to the lad. I am sure he knew already but should he be silly during a game at Celtic he loses his place in the side, I see this as the way Ronny works. What we have in Nadir is something we have missed since Sutton and Hartson maybe even JVH. Will he be as good as any the 3 of them? He is younger than all the other 3 when he joined, good coach to work with and superb players around him. This should be fun. His interview here is refreshing to read from a football player. Maybe Van Dijk should take note that being at a global giant is better than fighting for nothing every season. #JustSaying

Nadir Ciftci is determined to become a hero for the Celtic supporters after clinching his dream move to Paradise from Dundee United.

The striker put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Scottish champions last Thursday to become Ronny Deila’s fourth signing of the summer.

The new Bhoy could make his competitive bow tonight (Wednesday) as Celtic kick off their Champions League campaign against Icelandic side FC Stjarnan in the second qualifying round.

“I’m very happy to be here and I’m looking forward to playing for this club,” said Ciftci in an exclusive interview in this week’s Celtic View. “I have been able to play against the team for two years and I realise how big a club this is.

“The Champions League is big goal. As a kid, you dream about playing in the Champions League and to play for Celtic in the competition is something to look forward to.”

What excites him most about moving to the club, however,  is the prospect of starring in front of the Hoops faithful on a regular basis.

As an opposition player, he witnessed the difference their inspirational backing made in matches and he believes they can roar him on to greater heights as a player.

“The most exciting thing is the supporters,” he told the View in an exclusive interview. “We all know what kind of fans we have here and I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy their backing, and hopefully I can give a lot back to them as well.

“I know we have superb fans at this club and hopefully I can get the same support from them and give them something big on the park. This is what football is all about. They are the 12th man and they can have a big impact on the football.

“Messi doesn’t come in and say out of nowhere that Celtic Park was the best atmosphere he has played in. Everybody around the world knows this is the case and to be able to play for the supporters and not against them will only be good for me.

“The message to the fans would be is that hopefully I can go out there, entertain them and get their support and have a good bond with them – that’s something I would love to have.”

Ciftci has chosen the iconic No.7 jersey – a number worn by legends like Jimmy Johnstone and Henrik Larsson among others over the years. Stepping into their shoes doesn’t faze him.

“Henrik Larsson was one of the latest players to wear it and of course he’s remembered as a big player here that everyone looks up to,” he said. “But it’s a number I like for myself as well.  It’s special for the club and myself and hopefully I can live up to the number. I just need to do it on the park.”

♪ What Westminster CAN’T take from Scotland – EVER! ♫

The Tartan Army, to sing and get drunk, globally :D

The Tartan Army, to sing and get drunk, globally 😀

When we get angry or annoyed at the Austerity and how Westminster and the Tory party keep Scotland almost under house arrest we look for things they can’t take. Once many years ago it was said of the bagpipes “Outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes” Today we are free in spirit, we have more devolved powers and we 100% are the most Devolved nation on Earth. This <Click) So we may not have got what the No voters wanted but we Yes voters are fighting for the no voters.

All this aside I need to share (Again probably) Something nobody can take from us. This is Germany Vs Scotland from the 7th August 2014 just before the referendum vote. Watch as the German fans stand and are like “ok, a song, we have heard tons of national anthems, we will respect it” but then the Bagpipes start and WE START TO SING. Watch as the German fans, some slowly, turn around in AWE of this noise, this rebellious noise they probably don’t understand but at the time knew we wanted to be free. Watch how slowly they start to take pictures then video’s, in-fact this video is from a German fan, he gave me permission to share it so I have to thank the man. This is Scotland in spirit. We may not be were we want to be but we will be soon. Some want it yesterday, some tomorrow, in reality it may take 5 more years, 2020 and my vision is fine 😉 Now tell me this isn’t a BIT SPECIAL SCOTLAND

Scottish football deserves more from the BBC, says SNP

_61659845_5310191

The Scottish game deserves and should get 10x the current £1m a season say experts

ABOUT TIME! I won’t hold my breath on this one. The BCC pay Scottish football £1M a year to show the SPFL. Now I have to say this, I did this article here Why The SNP Must Change This Uneven, Religious Singing <Click) Now let me be perfectly honest and put my hands in the air, the article was intended well, I had the right road, sadly it was taken 50/50 as half liked and agreed and half across Social Media in all platforms threw hate at me. All I can say is people perhaps leaning towards their football club, like I STUPIDLY done were thinking “My Team” or “To hell with the Glasgow 2” I am a Celtic fan but I don’t do the hate. Sure I can say ‘Sevco’ but I am a Celtic fan in MANY who say “We probably do need The Rangers, new or old back in the top league” I know a ton of fans Celtic, Hearts, Hibs and more who say the same. I got hate, did I deserve it? Maybe! Does it matter? Not really, who loses sleep over that blog or it’s issues. Look again at the percentages and it add’s up to what I was trying to say 

This issue here I am delighted to see. Now the Beeb I dislike giving ANY column or  airtime to, they are almost Anti-Scottish if you look back to #IndyRef last September 2014. One article to kinda prove our, my point, just the Beeb’s misdoing’s was by comedian Kevin Bridges, here it is here. Kevin Bridges admits to BBC lies, 100% <Click)  And others were coming forward telling the same Story of “We were told to not mention anything Referendum. Many asked Kevin why he never spoke about the Referendum and if you read above he says simply “We were told not to do so at the last minutes”

So to the story. The English game gets £68million for English Premier League JUST for a Saturday nights Highlights package, don’t get me started on the SKY TV Deal. Again when you put all the %’s together with money given by Scot’s to the Beeb and Sky TV it does not add up. So it’s good the SNP are challenging this in Westminster. Can they change it? The current deal has a year or so do go, and experts have done the math at £10M should be the fee for Scottish Football highlights on a Sunday night. The obscene amount the English game gets allows teams like Hull to give £50,000 a week to a player who worth maybe £10,000 a week in Scotland, the imbalance from the Beeb in all things Scotland is awful and I am glad the SNP are pressing these buttons.

Many say “Football has nothing to do with Politics and the SNP” or whatever, I did my article on the song book and got abuse, this one I am feelings people will agree. Football is Scotland’s pass-time. I know some will say “Not mine” but in reality Scotland is Football first and last and it’s our passion here, that’s a statistical fact. The issue is people don’t have money to go to games all the time and also there are more people in London than there are in Scotland, so right away Scotland just has low numbers in fan base. Saying that some teams who get 10,000 at home every other week CAN and DO get 25,000+ to Cup Finals, where to these fans go when there is no Trophies to win?

What are your thoughts on this? For me the Scottish game should get it’s percentage the same as the English game from the BEEB and Sky TV. For now it’s the BEEB but do expect the SNP to ask Sky Sports the same question. We are undervalued because of lacking in fiscal happenings. Saying that because there is no money good young Scottish players have came through, so there is the old argument of “Why pay £5M for Johnny Foreigner when we can train our Scottish kids better” And being an Ex-Football manager myself I see how badly even ex Pro-Players coach.

Sam Stanton #Allegedly was bullied and abused by fans, this kid can be a SENSATION. Money or not, this is not cool coaching nor Fan help

I was involved with many ex-players all the way through my coaching courses all over Scotland and also seen my own son’s and my teams when I invited ex Pro players deliver the most AWFUL TRAINING methods to 10 year old kids to 15 year old kids. Many just go through the motions, there is no “Why are you doing this training” or “Why have I asked you to run there or get into space in a different place” So for me the coaching can be better. No names but some ex Pro players coaching kids are so bad it’s untrue. I am not the best, I got to East of Scotland level with Civil Service Strollers, amazing club, very briefly before my disability stopped me due to pain and medication, I was like 34 years old. In my 15 years I helped and was involved in 19 trophies being won, not me, the team! We must coach players to understand why we ask them to do training drills, sadly we lack. So with no money to spend and bad coaching maybe £10M a year for starters just from the BEEB can help better coaching and help teams get better players.

Talk it away………

The SNP has today demanded that the BBC puts more money into television rights for Scottish football following conformation that the corporation has short-changed the game north of the border. The BBC is paying only £1million a year for Scottish highlights — compared to £68million for English Premier League rights. Given that about 10 per cent of the licence-fee revenue comes from Scotland it stands to reason that clubs in Scotland deserve a better deal in return. Commenting, James Dornan, the SNP MSP for Glasgow Cathcart, which covers Hampden Park, said:

“The future of Scottish football is very important, and our domestic game needs a proportionate share of money in order to help build for the future.“It is only right that if audiences in Scotland are helping to fund these major financial broadcasting rights packages, our game here is given proportional investment back.“A football accountancy expert has argued that Scottish football is worth ten times more than the rights secured – unless the issue of Scottish football clubs being short-changed is addressed, then our clubs will have their prospects undermined.“I am calling on the football governing bodies to do all they can to address this, and to continue to ensure that young people are inspired to play the beautiful game.”

Another £9 Million and our game improves, we pay the fee's!

Another £9 Million and our game improves, we pay the fee’s!
