    He was a key player for how we played yesterday, he occupies the centre backs so well and that allows space in the channels and between their defence & midfield.

    Loves to get stuck in as well and their team of shitebags hate anyone that can give it back.

    They don't like playing against them. He should start every game against them.
    Is it correct we have won every game he has started against them ?.
    Stats.

    Fair play to him yesterday after the game, signed every autograph and had every selfie that was asked of him.

    This!!! When Jacko brilliantly robbed him first half, the so called hard man disappeared for the rest of the game. Worked his bollocks off for tue whole game. With a bit of luck, he would have scored.

    Have a feeling when he breaks the seal vs the Orcs...the goals.will flow against them for the big man.

    He did exactly the same in the 3-0 game last season, dragged 2 of their defenders out of position leaving Abada in acres of space to score. They know they can't leave him alone and double up on him, but that leaves space for our wingers and midfielders.

    Not a massive issue, except it would be good to know how to respectfully refer to the man, but can anyone catagorically confirm the spelling of Giakoumakis' first name?

    Have seen it spelt as Georgios, Giorgios and Giorgos... So which is it?

    It's differed from news outlet to news outlet, from sites like transfermarkt and even Celtic's own website has various spellings - they've used both Georgios as well as Giorgos on his profile page.
    https://www.celticfc.com/players/georgios-giakoumakis/

    What chance anyone has, if the club's own official website can't get it right, and you'd think they'd be able to find this sort of thing out to clarify, lol. Just one of those things that bugs me, lol.

    His Instagram bio has Giorgos, so I’m assuming that’s the correct spelling.

    Although you never know… :giggle1:

    Love the guy

    He * bullied their plastic hard man scouser in CDM from the striker position. Sums it up.

    Rudiger's next.

    Strong as a ox. Not playing hard man like Lundstram, but just boss everyone on the pitch instead.

    They are obsessed with Giorgos (or as they illiterates prefer to reffer to him "the big Greek") and would kill to have him, the big mans exactly the kind of striker they relish and it burns them up that we have him. Ah well tough * and all that.

    They know it as well..

    Colak does nothing. Nothing outwith the 6 yard box..

    Jackie bullies them. Presses. Drops deep. Can actually turn on a decent bit of pace..

    He shows them zero respect. That Colak couldn't run a bath.....was hilarious watching him trying to outrun Carter-Vickers..
