    Ye most clubs refused to release their players for the competition so was missing around 7 first choice players . Luca connell included. Best player by a distance that went to that competition was lee O'Connor. Plays mainly rb but can play lb, played the euros at centre mid and is currently playing centre half for the man u under 23s. I'd love us to sign him. He's a real real talent and with United signing wan bissaka and not being near first team at moment we could go in for him . Already a regular at rb for Ireland u21s and was previously called up to senior United and Ireland squads

    Looks like he's just let out an absolute ripper of a fart.

    Not a * given whilst those two poor * either side of him look aghast as the wafe of sweet sweet * vape surrounds their nostrils.

    Perfect.

    Jonathan Afolabi has signed a two-year deal with Celtic .

    The 19-year-old striker has made the move to Parkhead after leaving Southampton in the summer.



    Afolabi is highly-rated in youth circles in Ireland where he was a key part of the Irish side that reached the semi-finals of this summer's European Championships.

    The free agent teen was given the VIP treatment by the Hoops as they tackled Dunfermline in the Betfred Cup this afternoon and the deal was confirmed shortly afterwards.


    Afolabi becomes Neil Lennon's sixth summer signing after the arrivals of Christopher Jullien , Boli Bolingoli, Luca Connell, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Liam Burt this summer.

    And Lennon said: "He's here. He’s a young lad from Southampton, we’ve signed him on a free transfer and he’s one for development.

    “He’s on the cusp, so he’ll come in and train with us and we’ll get a good look at him in the next couple of weeks.



    Then we’ll decide what we want to do with him in terms of where his progression is.

    “He had a great tournament in the Euros. He’s raw, but we feel he has good potential.”


    he Tallaght-born frontman reportedly turned down offers from Spain and Russian clubs this summer.

    Crystal Palace were also linked while Aston Villa had shown an interest earlier in the summer.

    He is likely to join the club's academy side where former Rangers midfielder Burt is looking to impress after his summer switch across Glasgow.



    Lennon is now set to further strengthen his squad in the final two weeks of the transfer window.

    Full-backs are the priority although another flair player in the forward positions could also be on his wishlist.

    If he's not good enough for, a fairly modest it has to be said, Southampton side, why is he good enough for us? What happened to "we only want quality" ? More filler for the reserves no doubt.

    Apparently (according to saints fans at least) he couldnt agree a contract extension with Southampton. Word is his agent used offers from epl and championship sides to try a leverage Southampton... they told him to go * himself.

    But as I say, just rumors.

    Look at his face, lol, he's thinking what the * have I done.

    Better hope he gets a game for the development team as NL doesn't do new signings.

    He should be a step up from benyu .I know they play different positions,its good were signings pl youngsters instead of conference youngsters.We should be looking at a youngster as 3rd or 4th choice,no need to spend big upfront at least.
