Arriba le "Toro Verde"

There is a great wee video on youtube showing all the goals we scored last year. My word we really smacked in some crackers from all angles and all distances.

What caught my eye was the set of screamers from Turnbull (not to mention his assists too) . I love a player that doesn't care about how far he is out but just swings a golden peg at the ball. That guy is fearless and really believes in his own ability to hit the top bin. If Turnbull was Brazilian then some of those goals would be on constant repeat. We love the Kyogo, we love the Hatate, we love the Jota, the O'Riley and the JJ's. Sometimes our own home grown go under the radar as they are not seen as a sexy signing (not even going to mention T'bull's haircut) . Turnbull is every bit as good as the guys I have just mentioned and I really don't agree with some of our fans that would punt him for the first £10m bid. This guy has goals, assists and dig to spare. I know our midfield is getting bloated but is that a bad thing?

Go the "green bull". In my opinion he would get at least a half in every game. Give it to him about 20 yards out and be prepared to get your backside off your chair.

1 down - 9 to go.

Turnbull only turned 23 a couple of weeks ago and he has a very good career ahead of him, if he can stay away from future serious injuries.
Turnbull has a 45% goals/ assists ratio in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic.
More impressive is his 54% goals/ assists ratio in European competitions for Celtic.

Agree Stubbsie.
Turnbull is under-rated in my opinion and has been a bit over-shadowed by our more recent signings.
Ange sure has a problem on who to play, but it’s a good problem.
Similar problem with GG. What a centre forward, yet he is not guaranteed a starting place. Going to be a very interesting season for lots of reasons, including how Ange decides to use the squad. It’s fascinating.

Thanks BB - on the face of it his stats look impressive - not sure how it compares to the others but it is obvious the boy had talent. As you say, he needs to steer clear of the treatment table but he is only going to get better with age. It wasn't so long ago some wanted the team built around him. I'm not sure football works by building teams around individuals but Toro Verde sure as heck can contribute. Who's place and where he fits into the team is another thing but he is not a second choice for me.

Our best eleven comprises of about 20 players, long may it continue ?.

It’s like choosing the tyres on a F1 car. The best fit for the conditions.

Cork Paul might latch on to this TREAD.
