New Celtic men Shved and Jullien showing vintage signs
New Celtic signings Marian Shved and Christopher Jullien are living up to expectations.
The two Bhoys came in with reputations for different aspects of their game.
Shved’s trademark cut in and shoot doubled Celtic’s lead last night against Nomme Kalju.
While Jullien showed he is an aerial threat and almost got on the scoresheet too.
Shved showing signs of what’s to come at Celtic
The 22-year-old was a second half sub in Celtic’s 0-2 victory in Estonia.
Shved almost got a goal from the off but was denied by a great save from close range.
The Ukraine international continued to penetrate the tiring Kalju back line.
He got his goal after intricate play on the edge of the box allowed him to unleash a shot into the postage stamp.
It will not be a memorable goal for a lot of fans but for Shved it will mean a lot.
The fans did get the chance to keep up to date with Shved’s abilities while he played with Karpaty Lviv.
The tricky winger’s trademark cut in from the right side to unleash a shot is Patrick Roberts esque.
Now, the supporters are getting to see the former Sevilla man do that for themselves.
Shved isn’t the only man living up to expectations, though.
Christopher Jullien showing his set-piece threat
Another man close to a goal was new centre-back, Jullien.
The Frenchman was a towering figures during set-pieces and was achingly close to scoring.
Unfortunately, his turned header went narrowly over the bar.
Nevertheless, Jullien was a threat during other set-pieces through the match.
The Hoops faithful were told about his threat in the air from fans of Toulouse and media in France.
The Bhoys struggled from this area in previous years and it now looks like the problem is recitified.
Lets see which other new boy steps up in a similar manner – all eyes are now on a Vakoun Bayo header.
