    The Sun are actually running with the Sammy to Barca story, full back page picture. :smiley-laughing002:

    The media in this country would love us to keep losing our better players and will continue to unsettle them.

    Not one quote in the story, not even a source.

    Just, "Sunsport understands..."

    Which means they lifted it from forums who got it from that reputable source caughtoffside.

    These people get paid handsomely for that *.

    It scares me that folk missed out on Henke and are asking how he was compared to Samaras.

    Henrik was so far above anything I've ever saw for Celtic. I doubt I'll ever see his likes again for us.

    Which makes me sad :54:

    The Samaras story comes from a Barcelona fan poll in El Mundo Deportivo, not CaughtOffside.

    I know what you mean, this annoys the life out me! I have an on going debate with my old man about this.

    He never fails to buy a paper, has done so for 40 year, but at times he believes the printed word to be gospel. I, on the other hand need to see these wee things " " coming from the club/player/manager concerned before I pay attention to anything printed.

    It's just lazy journalism, not just the Samaras story but how many times have you seen a 'big scoop' in the paper from sources like.... A source close to the player, or players family or the uniquely vague sunsport/recordsport understands. I understand its their job to sell newspapers but come on at least put a little effort into it.

    Samaras is a very good player and hopefully will be playing the remainder of his peak career years with Celtic by signing a new contract later this season. But no disrepsect to him he pales in comparison to Larsson. Larsson played his peak years at Celtic and was a genuine world class player. In todays terms it would be the equivalent of having someone like Alexis Sanchez or Karim Benzema in our team every week.

    He was better than both of them imo. It's like having Lewandowski in your team, although slightly better and much more handsome.

    Didn't realise quite how many headers he scores.

    Gary Ralston of the Daily Record's lovely view (not) on Sammy to Barcelona link:

    "The closest Georgios Samaras will come to partnering Lionel Messi up front is if he buys FIFA 14."

    "Big Sami was linked with a move to Barcelona in some of the papers this week, although he’d be advised to hold off on buying a new set of Speedos for morning dips in the Med."

    "As always, there’s a story behind a story and in this case it was the tip received by Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo that Barca might be looking to snap up a Plan B targetman."

    "They duly ran a poll of who could fit the bill and the Greek was included in a list of options."

    "This excited the bhoys and ghirls at Hoops fan website Kerrydale Street. They rushed to show their support for Sami in the online poll by, erm, ultimately backing arguably their best player for a move out of Glasgow. The result?"

    "More than 8000 votes for Sami, most of them from Scotland, equating to 40 per cent of the poll, well ahead of second-placed Miroslav Klose."

    "Someone should tell Simon Cowell to put top chanter Adam Matthews on the X-Factor and the country’s debt crisis would be solved at a stroke by Celtic fans on their mobile phones."
