    John Guidetti doing the business for Celta Vigo: http://www.soccerbase.com/players/pl...layer_id=56208

    Apparently a big favourite with the fans. Wasn't a first teamer last year but gets a game every week now by looks of it.

    Keanu PM'd me asking how Tony Watt is doing.

    Back on the score sheet with Charlton, I said.


    Charlton manager Karl Robinson has credited captain Johnnie Jackson for helping to drive Tony Watt back into form.



    The Scot has scored twice in the last two games including the hosts’ leveller in the second-half of today’s 1-1 draw with Walsall.



    He also scored a late winner from the penalty spot against Scunthorpe on Tuesday and Robinson said this is the result of Jackson’s man-management.


    “Jacko is a person who drives him on and a support mechanism for Tony. I think he has really good captaincy skills. It’s not about me, it’s about having the right people around me to drive each other on. Certain people in the club have been driving Tony on and to be fair to him recently and he’s scoring goals – you can’t ask any more.



    “Two goals in two games and I’m sure he’ll tell me as well when I go back in. Tony is a special talent as everybody knows but it’s not just about the talent that you possess. It’s about the unified group that go on the pitch week in and week out and he’s certainly added to that at the moment which is great. When he adds to that, with the support of his talent he’s going to be threat.



    “I want to put it down to great captaincy by Johnnie Jackson. It’s not about me with Tony, it’s about Tony scoring goals for Charlton. He is a unique character, I like him though. I like people like that, and he scores goals so we love him even more.”

    Good read this:





    Scotland widely bemoans a lack of footballing talent emerging to match the stars of yesteryear.

    As the national side sees out what appears to be another failed attempt to reach a major championship, former international Andy McLaren feels the game has abandoned a once rich source of talent.

    He's providing football sessions in some of the most deprived areas of Glasgow, to kids who can't afford to pay to play.

    "Football, in my opinion, has become middle class," McLaren told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound programme in an interview to be broadcast on Monday evening.

    "It's an absolute disgrace that kids are being priced out of football in this country.

    "It's meant to be our national sport. It's meant to be all-inclusive. At the moment it's not.

    "I would have been priced out of football just now.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39326930


    He has been doing really good community work for a long time. That this is an issue that has been ignored until now is a disgrace.

    It's certainly middle class in terms of supporting it, but I'd be very surprised if it was for players.

    I don't think so. You don't see kids in schemes playing football anymore. And looking back at the ones who have come through with us in recent years most were from at least lower middle-class backgrounds. Maloney, McGeady etc.

    And the very man I posted about earlier, Tony Watt. Took out the schemes too late and he is still basically a daft bam. Get him involved with Celtic from a young age going through St Ninians and his family rehoused close by and you get a different man.

    The middle class players, where are they coming from? Where are they playing their football that the scheme kids can't?

    Just seems mad that in such a success driven industry that clubs wouldnt have their door open to everyone

    Oh, right. Aye loads of caged artificial pitches have sprung up all over Scotland in the past decade. They're expensive. Think boys football would cost a few quid to train and then same for match days to cover cost of hiring pitches. That pittance is beyond some families, coupled with travel.
