    We will, our best threat just now is either Ralston or CCV. They tend to get marked by the best in the air, when Julien comes in he’ll take that and win that competition, and leave more space and easier players to contend with for they two.

    Suddenly * will start praising Turnbull’s corners again

    He’ll be another big step forward for the squad when he comes back in. Be great just to have him as an option.

    Easily scores one of those chances that Welsh and Carter-Vickers had and for me, there's no way he doesn't get his head on one of the two goals they scored..

    Last we heard he’d be available after this international break.

    If he does come back after the break, you'd hope we would have him back up to speed in time for the hun game.

    A minor knock? He clattered his knee off the post and was in a leg brace for months.

    Ye i know that but i still dont know what the actual injury is.
    When i said minor knock i meant when he actually got the injury it didnt seem that serious at the time,its didnt look like one of the more obvious serious knee injuries player get.

    Of course i now know it turned out to be a lot more serious than i had thought,im just trying to find out what the actual injury is?do you know?

    I know. If Turnbull is the best we have at taking corners and/or set pieces then that's a concern. Surely they practice them at training?

    Turnbull’s got a good corner and set piece. He should have had two assists from it today, last week got two assists from set pieces and he’s done it a myriad of times this season problem is we don’t have * that are good at taking advantage of it.

    Bet your life on it, when Julien’s back, suddenly Turnbull will be delivering ‘quality set pieces’. It’s just that the big man can header them and cause havoc letting other * get a good run at finishing it.

    I’m certain I heard ligament damage at the time but searching Google doesn’t confirm that so * knows but it initially went from 3 to 4 months to 6 to 9 months and we’re now at the 10 month stage but with such a long term injury and not being able to train he’s probably suffered set backs that haven’t been made public.

    I honestly think we’ll struggle to see him play against the manks at new year, that’s just around the corner now really but even just getting him back in the squad and getting him on the park will be a boost.

    100% Jullien scores those chances that CCV and Welsh missed the day.

    Well if he does make it back before the end of this month you would think that should not be an issue as that would be a full month with plenty of games in between to ease him in from the bench before starting him in the lead up to the next game against the zombies.

    Agree, him coming back will make a big difference, 13 corners yesterday, reckon he would have got on the end 4 or 5 of them. Looking at WHU last night, surely we can learn something from them, look at the deliveries, the way they take keeper out of the game by getting bodies in his road.

    CHRISTOPHER JULLIEN is pushing towards a Celtic comeback by the end of the month.

    SunSport understands the £7million stopper – out since last December with a cruciate ligament injury – is making good progress with what’s been a pain-staking rehabilitation


    Jullien’s back training with the Hoopsfirst team squad.

    But given the length of his spell out the Celtic medical team and boss Ange Postecoglou are taking things cautiously, reluctant to put the 28-year-old under unnecessary pressure.

    However, it’s believed another two solid weeks of training could lead to a playing return and ultimately first team action before Christmas.

    Jullien’s been a huge miss for Celtic ever since he damaged his knee colliding with a post in a 3-0 Premiership win over Dundee United on December 30.


    It was one of a number of massive blows for former manager Neil Lennon in a disastrous season which saw him leave the club at the end of February.

    Frenchman Jullien won the treble in his first season following his June, 2019, switch from Toulouse and was also a stand-out in home and away Europa League triumphs over Lazio, scoring in the Parkhead tie.


    He hadn’t long returned from a back problem when he was cruelly struck down again in the fateful Dundee United game.

    Jullien returned to France for the initial part of recovery work and is now homing in on a playing comeback.



    His availability will intensify competition for places at the heart of defence with £4million capture Carl Starfelt also currently fighting back from a hamstring strain and Cameron Carter-Vickers proving a quality loan capture from Spurs.

    It's 10 days on. Anymore word on him?

    Re-reading some of the reports on his recovery still not getting any optimism he'll make it onto the park this year.
