Eddie Howe and the Never Ending Headlines

7 April 2021

There are no headlines without Howe these days when it comes to Celtic. Every Celtic player out on loan has had plenty column inches written about their return under Howe or Howe he might give them a chance. There has been nothing officially from Celtic yet and it is turning into a bit of a media circus for the tabloids and the click sites.

We even wrote a headline ourselves just one mind you in all the months he has been linked with the job and that was yesterday because like everyone else we have little details but I did back him to get the job but I’m told now that I might lose my bet if John Kennedy remains in charge for ten games, I wait in hope for a few quid and a new start at Celtic for Eddie.

A boy on twitter, a girl on Facebook have replaced the bloke down the pub during lock down with the exclusives but I’m sure they have as much insight into what’s going on behind the scenes as those proclaiming to have Exclusives!

The Celtic FC Foundations work, the ongoing fundraising for the Kano Foundation and other Celtic supporter fundraisers are struggling to get their story out and if they do it gets lost in a swamp of Howe mania.

The Celtic Colts story has been barely covered and unless I may be looking in the wrong place on the club’s official site, I haven’t seen a match report yet on Sundays Woman’s match and Celtic’s defeat to Glasgow City. The interest in the Howe managerial appointment has took the attention and hype away from the upcoming Glasgow Scottish Cup Derby and it has also knocked the darling of the Scottish media, Stevie G off the back page headlines.

I mentioned above about Celtic players out on loan, one of those who is catching the eye quietly is Irish under 21 striker Jonathon Afolabi who scored for Dundee after coming off the bench to get the second goal in the 3-0 win over Ayr. Former Celtic player and Celtic fan Paul McGowan knocked in the third.

If Eddie Howe is not appointed as Celtic manager there will be tears and I’m sure plenty of headlines as to Why and Howe he didn’t take the job but he will take it won’t he??
