Anyone else refreshing Teletext evey 15mins to see if Jota/ CCV/ or other has signed for Celtic? I hate the transfer period as I always feel like we are going to sign Ronaldo and I'm only let down when the transfer period ends.

Could this transfer period be different though? Will I be as dissappointed when we fail to sign a £10m+ player? Will I be shattered when we don't see a "marquee" signing drapped in a Celtic scarf?

This season I'm not so sure. Most of the players Sensei has brought in have been totally anonymous to me and have been brought in for relative "buttons". They have been amazingly effective to a man. So when Sensei buys unknowns for £2m, or even less, I will be resisting the temptation to sigh and let out a big!

I see Mbappe has just re signed for PSG for a weekly salary of £1m. I think he played a full season and scored 28 goals - that's nearly £2m per goal! It's crazy out there lads as one of his goals could buy two Joe Harts! The financial bubble these teams live in has to pop soon surely?

So go on Sensei - keep scouring about the "lesser" leagues of this planet and pick us up a few master stroke, but anonymous, footballers.

Stubbieshorse and T! M I still yearn for CEEFAX and the good old
Video Printer on Grandstand with Frank Bough and Desmond Lynham and when a team scored 7 goals they printed the word SEVEN just in case you were too dumb to notice the score lol.

T1M - bamboozle hahaha - I thought Bamber was a git because I was too dumb to get the answers! I used to think it was the future when it first came out. Imagine being able to get news at the touch of a button or see deals to Mallorca too - amazing stuff it was! Oh and Beta Max was going to live forever too! If only we knew!

Tim' - remember that Video Printer so well - and the noise it made " tchk, tchk, tchk tchk". I always told my dad to turn the volume down as it was so annoying. Desmond was annoying tae in my book but I always thought that Frank was greta with his lines though (hahahahahahahaha) .

You can tell there is no football rumours going around lol
Stubbsie can you also remember the old "slot tv's" that your ma used to rent when you could not afford to buy one. These HP stores were everywhere renting TV's, furniture and sofa's also.
But it was the slot tv I mostly remember where you put 50p or a pound coin in slot at back, and of course the annoyment when it conked out in middle of a programme and nobody in house had any spare cash.
The best bit for us younger ones, was when the man came to "empty" the TV box, he would count out what monthly store rent was and anything left was OURS, my ma used to buy groceries and treats for us all with this "windfall" ha ha.

T' I don't think they were still around for the £ coins were they?

Yeah we had a 50p one right at the end of their issue. My dad once thought he was being smart when one of his mates down the pub told him how to con it. You get a 50p and make an impression in plasticine, fill it with water and freeze it - stick the ice in the slot, it will melt and the "collection man" will be none the wiser. He tried it - result - the repair man with 2 massive suitcases of valves appeared the next day! Silly goat has shorted everything when it melted and I got the blame for spilling the water!

Innocent days!
