There’s a Mouss, loose, in the English hoose !
Happy Friday folks,
9th Friday of unordinary times.
The big week still might bring a surprise or two, but one gets the feeling everyone is holding their breath to hear what happens now from Doncaster and buddy.
There’s zero reason not to award the title but now is a moment for tact, diplomacy, and not a little politicking so I’m not anticipating title and punishment handed out in one go.
Hand the title out and put any slap on the back burner would be the usual, but when a line has been crossed by one party who knows.
A lover scorned and all that.
The big announcement could be here any moment, but we will wait for the fat lady to sing before officially kicking the party off.
Certainly not gonna blog about them more than is absolutely necessary, and it will be sometimes apologies in advance on my behalf, so I’m delighted a little heart warmer just happened to drop into my lap.
You will have your own feelings on our ex striker and I totally understand if how it all ended has brought him down a notch in any book, but the former bhoy has just went and bagged himself one of the most prestige positions in world football.
Just one step step after leaving us.
All BS aside, when he was first linked with us I could see the career path all laid out and we were to be part of his education under a very good coach/manager.
But I knew that’s all we were to him, I never became emotionally attached at all, just took on board what he gave in terms of goals only if you like.
26 goals in 55 appearances is almost textbook one in two, something I would say is the benchmark a striker needs to reach with us. It’s only the fact teams sit in a lot makes me not ask for more but one in two kept everyone happy in this case.
When you’re just looking at things kinda from the outside that one against City looked like a sclaff gone lucky but I’ve since seen other angles that justify the goal. To score when you’re back is to goal is rare full stop. He made it look so very easy. There’s a great start with the United faithful.
But once again we have a representative in the elite league, joining several actually. A growing clique in fact. This one took one step sideways instead of the direct move ala KT. If asked when he joined which of the duo would be down south first the Frenchman would easily have got the nod. Such is life and lesson learned.
Will Moussa shine?
Well for starters that goofy smile of his will become world famous, at least heavily advertised in most parts. The Man United striker gets the lions share of the attention, that will make or break certain characters, but I think this gifted kid fancies himself a superstar.
He will certainly get the wages.
Ole will fancy his chances of molding him into the main man he craves up top, so all the ingredients are there.
I would have backed Kieran to be more of a cert to shine, but smartly Moussa has another couple years of new experience and conquering a fresh challenge under the collar now, that will stand him in great stead.
Aye he will do well at Man Utd. In fact he will explode onto the scene ala the new Rooney and show quite a few former stars up I reckon.
A snip in previous market terms btw, absolute steal. Ole is the perfect manager for him and also he wants that French number 9 shirt for the next Euros, just gave himself the platform to grab it, which means he will go all out to get it.
Golden boot next summer, you heard it here first.
As mentioned before, every ex Hoop that does well in what’s the most hyped and marketed league in the world is another feather in our cap and the common denominator has well been sussed out. It’s an acknowledgement we can develop a cracker, and it does strengthen the hand a bit while negotiating.
Well done Moussa, go get em kid. You’ve earned it. Go with our best wishes and join the long line of ex Celts that have graced that club.
The above is by Mahe.
Up the bampots, starve the bent.
