    I donít think St Mirren knew that Duffy had signed for Celtic yet ! !

    Maybe a late stage career transition to a striker is in order. We can play him as the big target man upfront with Obafemi or Connolly feeding off him. Added bonus, we don't have to worry about his distribution from the back anymore.

    Even Ajer is a much better footballer than him, but Duffy in a sweeper type role adds the much needed grit to allow Celtic play (in theory) a 3 5 2.

    Just how deluded are irish fans about the versatile football talents of some of our central defenders?
    Gary Breen's delusion is that he thinks Duffy would be playing in the EPL, even though no team wants him.
    Therefore Duffy, instead of benchwarming some EPL club, will pick all those bad habits that VVD supposedly did at Celtic, bad habits that Gary diligently noticed VVD did not have at Groningen.
    Such a perfect talent at Groningen that no other Eredevisie club wanted him . And then all of sudden after VVD exited Celtic, he cleaned up most of the accumulated bad Celtic habits after a few games in the EPL and became Southampton's player of the year in his first season there.
    And to think some irish fans swallow that, hook line and sinker.

    West Ham wanted him and he had a choice as to where to go. Shane Duffy was available to Celtic because Duffy was a huge Celtic fan and more importantly, his father was a huge Celtic fan and with his death, itís something Shane wanted to do.

    We've been crying out for a new Gary Doherty for years. Then it lands on your lap.

    Which modern International team worth their salt is not crying out for a new Gary Doherty?

    Joking aside, Germany had an absolutely rubbish 2018 WC, embarassingly bad. But count back how many easy headed chances they missed at key moments in key games, from 6-10 yards in front of goal (Gomez and Hummels key culprits I think). Had any of them gone in they'd have been game changers. We're not even talking about having a Klose or even Andy Carroll here. Doc would have done the job, no problem. Although my ability to recall football facts or opinions has diminished massively in recent years I am almost sure I commented at the time that despite Germany's apparent decline, there was nothing wrong that a good old fashioned 9 wouldn't have proved a short term fix for.

    I'm all for a big, strong target man up front. They cause chaos around the opposition's penalty box. However they have to be decent with the ball at their feet and be able to play a bit like Quinn and Crouch. Wasn't Doherty more in the Tony Cascarino, Carsten Jancker mould? I remember watching Cascarino in a World Cup qualifier at Lansdowne Road, prior to the 1990 World Cup and it seemed that every time the ball came to his feet he either knocked it out of play or fell over it.

    And they're one of the better sides - finished third last season.
