    Remember he scored a belter vs Falkirk back in 06, one of my first Celtic games * class goal. * Miller missed a peno late that match too, was his birthday I think! Miss big G he was a hard * and good technical player!

    He could be really inconsistant for us. When he was good was very good. When he ws bad, man did it drag the team down. Especially in games when we needed his experience and to stand up, could be sadly lacking. His errors against Man Utd in the Champions League for example stick very much in my memory.

    Strachan stated in his book that Gravesen didn't work out because he couldn't find a way to fit him into his system. Shame, as he was a good player.

    Always said he was the sort of player we should have built a team around.
    Screaming out to play a 433 with him in the middle, instead we stuck rigidly to a 442 and tried to shoehorn him in to a * up system(* up in terms of him playing).
    Pointless signing at times when we clearly were not going to change a system to suit him.

    WGS team needed very disciplined midfielders. Gravesen wasn't one of those.

    Think both ourselves and Madrid had him mistaken for Lee Carsley.

    100% this. So much. :50:

    Gravesen & Carsley were excellent together for Everton, but definitely felt that Madrid missed a trick, electing for Gravesen instead of Carsley.

    Sometimes I can barely make out what McGeady and Ferry are saying but those stories about Gravesen are hilarious.

    So he'd left the club a full year and he shows up trying to get into the players' lounge wearing the club blazer. :celtman2::celtman2::celtman2::celtman2:

    Think they meant after he came back from his loan to Everton. He played for 1 season, then Strachan obviously did not like him so loaned him to Everton.

    I was at the st mirren away game where he scored a hat trick. He should have been one of our star men for a few years but it didn't work out!

    One of those signings that I can still remember hearing, I thought he was going to be huge but WGS wanted to * him about. McGeady seems to imply similar in his interview with Simon Ferry.

    It's a shame we just couldn't find a place for him in our system at that time, still confused as to how he didn't do better giving his quality.
