Just a wee mention on anyone who had doubts about us signing jermain defoe,
what do any doubters think now? Even though it was an original 18 month loan deal
we signed defoe on from bournemouth, i do now think that he'll become our striker on a permanent deal, at the end of this season. He will finish his career at rangers and play for another couple of years anyway. I think as he's already helping out on the coaching side, i can see him becoming our striker coach, once he does hang up his boots. The wee man is a class act still and model professional. He'll continue to score goals for us for fun. He looks after himself so superbly well off the park and has the physique of a player in his late 20's. I can already see the influence defoe is having on alfredo morelos. Morelos at the start of this season,
looks like he's now much better on his one on one finishing, whereas last season he missed a lot of they sort of chances. He's now putting most of these chances away.
Also the eating habits that defoe can/ is passing on to not only morelos, but all our squad is very important and will be beneficial. I read the article about defoe when he first signed for us, which stated he turned a complete vegan, about a decade ago and was told then, that this would prolong his career by around 5/ 6 years. I think looking at him, he could well play for us into his 40's. He's also a teetotaler into the bargain. Wee defoe loves playing for the famous glasgow rangers, you can see it a mile off.

defoes class has never been in doubt, kind of wish he'd signed a few years ago. My only concern was the wages that was reported that we were paying.

19 Aug 2019 17:08:29
His first touches are sublime. No denying his quality. Guys a class act!

19 Aug 2019 17:39:20
Cant recall reading about Defoe doubters on here.

19 Aug 2019 17:50:09
There was most definitely a small amount of doubters regarding signing a guy of defoe's age and the wages side of things. I can assure you also The Stuck, that a few doubted us signing him, at the start when the guy was nowhere near fit, just the same as they did with stevie davis.
Just look at these 2 veterans now.

I can't recall reading that defoe is giving the squad diet advice 🀣 that made me chuckle but can't fault coops enthusiasm.

19 Aug 2019 18:12:29
They're ability was never in doubt supercoop. When we signed them both we were level with c*ltic. It took defoe and davis till march-april too get match fit, by then the league was gone. Surely you can see that supercoop? Last season was a missed opportunity. I think if we'd signed defoe and davis at the start of the season we would have won the league.

19 Aug 2019 19:00:56
Defoe is class and if we hadn't signed him then we wouldn't be seeing the morelos we are seeing today. Davis is class aswell. πŸ‘.

19 Aug 2019 19:07:39
Exactly coldo. Totally agree mate.

19 Aug 2019 19:53:41
But celtic fans said he was a finished journey man who wouldn't score hahahaha.

19 Aug 2019 20:43:51
There is plenty people on here who don't think defoe can hit 30 goals this season. He's already on 6 goals in competitive games and its mid august. There's 9 months to go, I don't think its unrealistic given all the games that defoe can't hit 3 goals per month. πŸ‘.

19 Aug 2019 21:15:41
I think morelos will score 30+ goals this season. If Defoe scores 30, we will win the league.

19 Aug 2019 22:03:46
Pretty sure the club nutritionists advise the players on what to eat! Jeeso.

20 Aug 2019 00:33:22
There’s always doubters on here about everything and I doubt they will every stop.

20 Aug 2019 13:32:50
You obviously haven't listened to what defoe said in one of his interviews when he came here pal. He stated he was a strict vegan and had his own menu on what he ate. God some folk just don't look beyond!

20 Aug 2019 13:37:17
Defoe and Davis were terrific signings, you can never hide class. But the statements about Defoe and his dietary input to the club are ridiculous. He's not, and never has been, a 'complete vegan', he's not even a 'complete vegetarian' as he eats fish three or four times a week. He also only radically changed his diet in the past two years when he stopped eating red meat, not 'a decade ago'. Coop, how do you expect to be taken seriously when you are prone to such silly exaggeration in almost all of your flowery posts?

20 Aug 2019 14:30:04
Listen daisy yore, jermain defoe himself said this about turning vegan and it was almost a decade ago. Try looking into things before saying anyone is wrong. Not all his life vegan, i never said that. Honestly there's some warmers on here right enough.

20 Aug 2019 19:32:21
Show me where I used the words 'all his life'. He is NOT a vegan, he takes his diet more seriously than that. He only gave up eating red meat two years ago (his own words) . Warmers? The term could have been invented for you. Still insisting we've got a gentleman's agreement with Leicester over Morelos? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
