Discuss Leigh Griffiths in the Celtic Chat area at TalkCeltic.net.
Great news, he's a good forward who i think would excel in a 2 up top formation with Eddy
Have to admit that I didnae want the durty wee * here in the first place, but he's won me over with his attitude, ability, and, most importantly, KEEPING HIS DAFT OFF-DUTY * OUT OF THE HEADLINES!
Glad to have you on board for 10IAR Griff! Congratulations ma BHoy!
Hope he can stay fit, if he wants another 100 goals then he is at the right club
Start by banging in 2 or 3 goals tonight
When hes fully fit hes absolutely lethal.
Hes tied down now and happy so hopefully he will kick on and blow the league apart again.
Good news. Tied him down for the peak years of his career.
I thought he’d be gone soon, delighted with this.
Brilliant to see Super Leigh signed up for another 4 years. His attitude and commitment has been first class, he's the sort of guy I love to see in the hoops, you can tell it means a * of a lot to him to play for Celtic. Of course he has the talent and goal scoring ability to go along with it
should have started the game, we need to play 2 up front as Edourad is useless on his own
LG: We played a large part of the game with ten men but we still dominated the game. At times you’re not going to get those clear cut chances so sometimes you need to take those half chances.
LG: "You’ve got to give credit to
. They defended well and were difficult to break down."
LG on new contract: "I’m delighted to get it over and done with but it was unfortunate not to top it off with a goal. I’m delighted that it’s over now and I can focus on my football."
Hopefully gets an extended run as a two up top with Edouard and between them we can find some goals and some form.
We just can't do 1 up top any more with Dembele gone.
contract: "It’s brilliant for him and the club. Now he can really focus on his football and get to a consistent level of fitness and availability. The supporters love him and we all love him so it’s good news."
Ineffective from the bench. He really needs to be starting games like tonight.
He's looking very rusty. Think the persistent injuries are taking their toll. When he's fit he's used sparingly as well. All adds up to a misfiring striker. More game time will be coming his way now Dembele has gone, really needs a to kick on.
Not on the basis of his performance when he was on.
Touch like a trampoline, cleared the stand behind the goal while 6 yards out, set-piece delivery wasn't tremendous either. He needs to seriously up his game.
Personally i thought that his disallowed goal at the death was an absolute worldie, just wish he had made more of an effort to get back onside.
The first touch with his chest to control the pass was top drawer and finished emphatically.
That in a nutshell sums Griffiths up. Capable of flashes of brilliance, but maybe just cant sustain the work rate/attitude/effort/focus (whatever applies) to be a cut above.
