Totally left-field post here:

Director of Football role for Ranieri at Parkhead?

He may be ambitious to manage again or maybe not. Iconic status in sync. with our own ethos as outsiders, marginalians, &c. Fabulous ambassador for the whole game. A man, moreover, who can really understand the epoch-making success of the Lisbon Lions. Would Brendan have the maturity to work with someone of this stature: damn straight.

Why would we make ANY changes to the structure of the management team of even the club right now?
Everything about the club is pulling in the one direction and is being very successful
What is the fascination with fixing thing that ain't broke?

I can't see what he would bring to the team that BR can't. What would he be in charge of? At the moment BR pretty much runs the show with very little influence.

Why create a situation when everything seems to be going fine. Is Brendan mature enough? , when has he not been. We don't need Ranieri, and to start making jobs up because you feel sorry for him is not good business. Undermining Brendan, that's basically your idea. poor.

Agree1 1Disagree

Ranieri did an unbelievable job last season. Really nice guy and the board should have offered him a move upstairs. This guy has brought honour and prestige not to mention a shitpot of cash through merchandise sales, League win cas and current Champions League cash.
Would he add anything to Celtic? I doubt it. Why change (again) what is actually working. Does BR need a Director above him? . I think not.

Prob best leave him to join the other side as we did with Wilson, allegedly.

No thanks. What Leicester did to that man is disgusting. He should have been made an abassador for the club but I still wouldn''t like to see him come to us. Our set up is working absolutely spot on just now. leave it be.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2017 11:50:53
To be honest, if Brendan was to leave us I wouldn't want Ranieri as his replacement.
I know that there is a huge outcry about his sacking but if you look at his career overall I don't think he's been very good.
The season previous to last, Leicester won 7 of their last 9 matches under Nigel Pearson, everything was already in place before Ranieri took over, players, style of play etc. Once teams had worked them out Ranieri couldn't alter the style of play and he made poor buys.
I'm not disputing he is a nice guy, but in my view when you take the emotion out of it the work was already done before he took over and when things started to go wrong he couldn't cope.
At Celtic we have a set up that is working well, I wouldn't want emotion and sympathy for another manager to start to undo al the good work that has been started.

{Ed001's Note - Ranieri was not in charge of recruitment, they lost their head of recruitment to Everton in the summer, which was a big part of the problem as it left their plans in a mess.}

I like the look of the new development plans but i have severe reservations.
Im all for improving training facilities but the retail plans are madness imo. I work in this trade and there is zero chance this will be a profit spinner in any decent time frame v the build costs. The hotel yeah. Great idea if it's competitive, close to the city etc. No disrespect but the footfall in the area can't support it, the city is awash with numerous eateries all after the same numbers, people won't jump the subway and walk to it through parkhead. Cut the catchment again as it will be a Tim only complex . Match days it could be a huge earner. Massive. We have to be very careful how we do it. Push for a higher spend per head type and it won't work. Balance that against it being a nice place to go with decent grub and facilities that's the tough bit and I don't think it's possible . Matchdays with travel and tickets cost the earth. The biggest spend should be a multi story car park and major road development. The cost of this quite frankly are monstrous and outside or reach. Nice idea though.
How many units in the complex are rumoured? What is the hotel capacity out of interest?
I don't want to pi$$ on chips but we need to curb our enthusiasm slightly. Everything right now should be going into our squad and training grounds. Jumping through hoops to get a cl final stadium isn't in our current budget.


I don't know what the £ backhander is for hosting a final. I'm hoping the unseen has agreed this guarantee prior to the first shovel breaking the earth.
For me this type of investment can only be justified if we show consistent profits akin to the ones shown this year. We have had a GREAT year. I think we are pushing this a bit early . Great bit of pr muscle flexing.

Rg i bow to your greater knowledge in this field, but during the season and with a home game every second week do u not think the place would b mobbed, never mind xmas party nights CL nights corporate events and just people wanting the experience of staying in the celtic hotel. Personally i think it would do fine.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 Feb 2017 10:36:43
Events at Celtic Park and the Emirates Arena should bring good business. To say cut the numbers because its a TIM only complex is utter nonsense, people from outside the goldfish bowl couldn't give a toss about that crap. Athletes, businessmen and tourists wouldn't think twice about Scottish small mindedness. Im afraid for someone " in the business" as you say, your letting yourself and your arguement down with being narrow minded and completely negative. We don't need PR tricks unlike our skint neighbours. Its all about building for the future, the main stand should be improved next, then i think we are ready for any changes in where the club competes in football, whatever league or super league that may be.

Do u know lads I was sitting at the game today and big billy popped into my head and how I'd not seen him in a while! Then I read what him and his family are going through and devastated is an understatement! I knew he wasn't keeping well but had no idea it was this bad. YNWA big man HH.

Just back from game and good result again but like last week a bit flat and not quite as fluid as earlier in season. You get the sense somebody is due a pumping though and maybe we're keeping our powder dry for the 'Glorious 12th' 🍀.

Ed any info on big jozo missing all together today.

{Ed007's Note - Rested/not needed/dropped, take your pick.}

Cheers at least not injured.

{Ed007's Note - Not that I know of mate and there was nothing mentioned yesterday.}

25 Feb 2017 18:29:59
I think Eric and Boyata are a better pairing. Apart from a couple of ropey passes in the 1st half Boyata was excellent, like a totally new player and Eric is as solid as a rock although a bit on the short side. A good solid performance and Dembele is class, his 1st was a peach.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 18:54:58
Brendan said in his pre-match interview that jozo had a slight injury from Friday's training that they wanted to wait till today to re-asses but didn't want to risk him.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 18:48:40
I think we have 3 great pairings at centre back now n on form probably boyata n schviatchenko for me, at the moment although I think big simu is class.
Thought we controlled the ball overall, Hamilton were organised n got in amongst us which made us play back the way a bit more in the 1st half, dembele 1st was a belter. 2nd half I thought we were much better, gms came onto a game specially taking players on. We do miss Roberts n rogic in the attacking 3rd though.
However solid 3 points and another win for the mighty Glasgow Celtic.
Here we go ten in a row.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 18:52:52
Croybhoy-I thought Gamboa had a really good game today as well and KT was the usual class act at left back. Dembelle's goal must be a contentebder for goal of the season. 🍀.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 19:19:22
Agree JFP, Gamboa was excellent, very fast with skill also. KT is just a star, hope we get a good few years out of the bhoy, lads like that who genuinely love the club with that talent are few and far between. Seems to have his head screwed on also.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 19:49:04
Would like to see Gamboa having a run at defenders more often. There was a few times today where he had space in front of him but opted to play the ball back or inside. (Maybe he's had it drummed in to him that keeping possession is his first priority. ) Apart from that I agree he had a good game and Boyata strolled through the game looking rather classy.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 20:16:50
I have to say, I thought Boyata was outstanding today, I watched him from start to finish and I am amazed at the transformation from last season. His composure and vision were a joy to watch and although one Swallow doesn't make a Summer, Brendan may just have found a player without breaking the bank.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 20:31:41
Croybhoy, I think KT is the best full back at Celtic Park since Danny McGrain and better going forward than Danny was. If Dembelle is worth £30m so is KT for me I think he's that good though hope like you it's not for a long time if ever he leaves. Very seldom you see a full back have as big an impact on the game as KT does. His delivery into the box is first class. 🍀.

Agree1 1Disagree

25 Feb 2017 21:12:56
Boyata an jozo for me as they can commmand in tbe air better than sviatchenko is headers at clearing where woeful today.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 21:23:40
KT just as good in the tackle as he is going forward rare in a modern full back for me best player at Celtic superb.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 22:18:35
The bhoys definitely a star and easily a £30 mil plus player, along with Dembele. We are lucky to have them. Good to see Lennoxtown produce that calibre of player. Can only remember Danny McGrain at the end of his career but if he's talked about at that level then we have a player and hopefully for a few years yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2017 08:42:36
I remember D Mcgrain breaking the line against Wales in the home internationals. He tackled their LB on the half way line and sprinted through on his own only to be fouled in the penalty area by the backtracking welsh defender. Ref was so far behind he was still in the scotland half and did not give a penalty. He was world class that day, electic pace and tackled like a demon. No one could get past him and remember he could play on the left too. I also have a memory of JS setting a tactical master class against Hibs when he pulled he whole team to the left and Mcgrain on the right to destroy their defence.

When eboue is fit (I'm presuming he was signed to be a first team player) who moves to the bench?

Rotation with Armstrong/ biton?

Separate point what about bitons new hair do?

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 10:16:03
When you consider that both Henderson and McGregor are there or abouts domestically at the least with Christie also there its a pretty nice situation we are pondering. For me for dynamism goal threat n energy its got to be armstrong. Biton style is slower n while he is improved this year armstrong has went streets ahead.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 11:47:26
First me Armstrong has time be in the team.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 11:53:52
Armstrong on this form is undroppable.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 11:54:40
Bitton for the chop.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 12:02:15
Armstrong could be our future captain if he continues as he is.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 12:59:16
We have a great blend of styles with Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, Eboue, Henderson, Bitton and McGregor - not including the wide men and young Christie out one loan and when we finally get rid of Commons, Allen and possibly GMS, we might even be able to add more quality?
Roberts would be a dream signing, but highly unlikely and I would like us to sign another decent striker to replace Ciftci, especially with Griffiths missing so much football for one reason or another and maybe not in BR's favour?

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 13:08:03
With Rogic injured I'd like to see Armstrong playing as a No. 10 with Brown and another behind him. Possibly Eboue?

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 13:15:30
No way I would move Armstrong anywhere. He's playing the best football of his career right not why change anything?
For me I can't see biton being here next season.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 13:49:27
It's obvious there are too many midfield players, at least four will have to be moved on.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 19:21:57
Kevbhoy what makes you think Eboue is going to make it. From what i have seen he has a long way to go to get into the first team squad. I am sure BR will improve him but does not look up to it at this minute.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 08:21:01
Morning BHOYS n Ghirls what's the earliest we can win the league.
