Looks like Aaron Mooy is set to sign over the next day or 2. Decent enough player but not sure if he improves on what we have. Really need to get another centre half in

Is it really a strange signing ? I’m not saying it’s a great signing but it’s definitely not a strange one. 1. He’s known to the manager and has worked with him before and received very positive feedback from Postecoglu. 2. He’s got experience of playing at a higher level than all of Celtic’s midfield (McArthy apart). 3. Commercially Celtic are moving into the Asian and Oceanic markets - this enhances that. 4. He’s experience of playing in Scotland. 5. He’s relatively cheap.

I don’t really see much of the fuss about Mooy

1 year deal on a free transfer, very low risk signing 

Apparently this is the first time Ange has signed an Australian (outside of Australia) and so far his signings have been pretty spot on since he arrived

A proven player in the EPL, and an internationalist who the manager knows well and he costs nothing?  Its a no brainer really for me. Add that we have lost relative regulars in Biton and Rogic, lost a back up in Soro, need to reduce Mcgregors game time where possible and Turnbull not the best for a full 90 mins its a signing really that potentially helps us out a lot. Doing well to convince him to come considering its the world cup soon and not really guaranteed game time.

Walked past Celtic Park for the first time the other day and couldn't help but feel it was much smaller than I had expected. It actually looks much bigger from the inside on TV. Is the pitch sunken into the ground at all? I double checked just now and it is indeed the biggest ground in the country by a fair margin. What's the story? What yous up to in there?

I always feel it looks massive from the motorway as you can see in via the smaller stand. Closer to it though I kind of get what you mean as the emirates velodrome is beside it and you wonder how one holds 6x times as much as the other. The other side is basically a huge wall up along it backing on to a massive mounded grave yard so I think because there are larger things around it it doesn’t look huge compared to other large grounds which often just back on to rows of small houses.

ETA - I still think It looks pretty massive though tbh.

Yeah it definitely looks bigger from further away. From the motorway or my old college it sticks out like a sore thumb and towers above everything else. Probably didn't help that where I was closest was the London Rd side and that stand is about 1/3rd of the others. 

I wanted to walk along that road that goes under the cemetery side stand but there was a man in hi-vis and I got scared.

He brings absolutely nothing to their squad.

I’m not sure about that. Bitton and Rogic played in around 70 games last season so they needed cover as 70 games across 2 less players puts a strain on players. Add to that that McCarthy and Ideguchi are not likely to feature much under the manager and with a couple of injuries and suspensions midfield could quickly become an issue.

I think what you are trying to politely say is that you think Mooy is pish. If that’s the case, fair enough but just say it. But their manager clearly rates him and in that case it’s not a strange signing at all.

Good squad player. We have 2 players for every position I think? Though not 2 playmakers, I guess O'Riley is only one now Rogic is gone. The French guy if we sign him I presume would be a Rogic replacement

I think it’s the main stand being so much smaller that can give the impression it’s a lot smaller than it is.

Not that it would factor in to the deal as such, but his wife is a weegie too IIRC

Everyone we sign is pish according to @Mr. Alli including our manager. It’s a wonder how we managed to win a game at all never mind a double 🤷‍♂️

Already has a house in Glasgow apparently not that it should be a deciding factor as you say. 

Mooy doesn’t improve what we have however as a squad player he definitely fits the bill as a player who can win the ball high up the park and use it effectively. We need additional strength in depth with the loss of Rogic and Bitton and on a free and with his experience it’s relatively low risk.

The last player I said you signed was pish was McArthy.

I was right.

Tbf I don’t recall you saying anything about McCarthy other than there was no chance he was being signed as backup. 

You were wrong
