Dumitru Copil.

Hobbit-looking Jambo 'Wonderkid' signed during the glorious, glorious, glorious, Vladimir Romanov period of the Jambo's patchy at best history.

 

At a time when Hearts fans were looking forward to winning the Champions League with the absolute cream of Lithuanian football, plus a smattering of foreign mercenaries to make them TRULY invincible on the European stage, their club pulled off what looked like a genuinely brilliant signing in the shape of alleged Romanian Wonderkid, Dumitru Copil.

 

Touted as one of 50 kids to watch (in footballing rather than Catholic Priest terms), Dumitru Copil was going to be the next Gheorghe Hagi... the next Popescu...

 

After 2 years of kicking around the Jambo reserves because he wasn't good enough to play in the SPL, according to then manager Stephen Frail... and keep in mind this is when guys like Ricky Foster, Zander Diamond, Darren Mackie, Stuart Duff, Derek Young, Jamie Langfield, TOMMY WRIGHT, Mark Kerr, and Gary McDonald were deemed good enough... Remember that team? Great days... when all those guys were considered more than good enough to play SPL football... Dumitru Copil fucked off out of it, never to be heard of again.

 

Where did he go?

 

Back to Romania, where he hacked around various clubs and never, ever, ever played for the Romanian national team at anything above U17 level.

 

Wonderkid my arse.

 

Now 28, playing in the third tier of Romanian football at some club named after a Mexican Soap Opera actress... Gloria Lunca Teuz Cermei... having never achieved the greatness for which he seemed destined.

 

That's what you get.

Former Hibs and Celtic striker Anthony Stokes is set to be sacked from Greek club Apollon Smyrni after going AWOL for over a week

 

Typical Hibee minker. Another one that's wasted his talent. Ironically enough, the minkiest of the lot, Thumb, has actually done the best out of the lot

He's younger. Give it time.

 

Stealing from Tesco and having 8 kids with 10 different women. The saga has only just begun.

Chris Chimiak, central midfielder, was once on the books of Raith Rovers and Notts County, showed up via a mutual friends playing fives with me and my mates* a while back and was never on a winning side.

 

Seemed obsessed with "pressing high", rather than "scoring more than them". Nice bloke though.

 

There was another lad who played with us, who was at pro level for a while in his youth: playing with him was like having Zidane on the pitch, Chris not so much. Strange how some pros adapt to amateur play and others don't.

 

 

*dinnae ask, we're shite.

Former Norwich City forward Grant Holt has agreed to appear in the World Association of Wrestling (WAW).

The 37-year-old, who played for Barrow in the National League last season, starts his wrestling training on Thursday and will initially combine it with his football commitments.
Holt is scheduled to team up with Roy and Zak Knight, known as the UK Hooligans, at Fightmare 3 in 2019.
WAW was founded by Ricky Knight, Saraya Knight and Jimmy Ocean in Norwich in 1994.
