    Aiden McGeady started for Sunderland U-23s v Crystal Palace on Monday 23rd. Evening Chronicle wonders if Phil Parkinson wants to get him fit and move him on in January.

    He might be just trying to improve Aiden’s Crossing and Retension of the Ball ~ ~ Two things for all of Aiden’s ability he was always very poor at.

    True. The rentention didn't bother me too much as that can happen with a creative player trying to make something happen.
    But some of his crossing over the years was shocking. If he had a good cross on him he'd have been World Class
    Folding my way into the big money!!!

    But McGeady gave it away too easy and too often for the top level or even near the top level and how could an admittedly skilful player not learn to cross a ball. He lacked the ability to improve which is a major drawback. Was he just too up himself ? He wouldn’t be the first footballer to get carried away with himself and think he was way better than he was.

    His game developed in certain aspects. He improved defensively.
    But his job was to beat players and create.
    When he did that it was fantastic.
    Problem was he tried to do it every single time.
    His decision making was often poor. That’s the part of his game that didn’t improve enough.

    But when he was on it he was a joy to watch.

    Really fun player to watch in his prime. Had his limitations but on his day virtually unplayable. Obvious deficiencies in overall game which were found out at Prem level but some great outings with Celtic in Europe.

    Is it a problem with Celtic ? There is no doubt McGeady had ability but Not to learn how to cross a ball and to keep procession at the highest level is pretty much unforgivable. He turned out to be pretty much a waste of a potentially high quality player. Was this Celtic’s fault or McGeady’s fault ?

    with all the problems we had creating chances and the mcgoldrick leaving the boat, I wouldnt mind to bring him to the fold for one last campaign, even more if he goes to Celtic, I think he will go there in January

    Probably a bit of both.
    I thought the move to Moscow was a good one at the time. He didn't get a great run of chances at Everton afterwards.

    He wasn’t good enough at Everton and its no surprise that he slipped down the leagues. How can a skilful player not cross a ball and hold on to procession ?

    You've used this a couple of times, so I'll just reamark that it's possession, from to possess. Procession is something else.

    (No big deal. We all have blind spots.)
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Traditionally, it's the other side of the community in Glasgow/Ireland who hold processions

    I was in Glasgow once when they were doing one on a Sunday ( not the 12th of July ) and the only People interested were the members of the Band. The Public showed no interest what so ever !

    I was actually there on the 12th once (which in Glasgow is held on the Saturday before the 12th to allow them to make the trip to Belfast for the actual 12th)

    There was about a hundred there. Having had an actual 12th parade walking past the end of the driveway it was rather pathetic looking in comparison.
    Bring Back Belfast Celtic F.C.

    Seems to be dying death in Glasgow anyway if our experiences are anything to go by.

    A player that never lived up to what he and others hoped for. I wonder how much of it was his attitude. When you hear his thoughts / words it comes across as he thought he was a lot better than he is. It happens to many of them. I wonder was it just too many “ yes you are brilliant “ People around him.

    A could have been ~ ~ I suppose he has done alright financially out of it.
