Ed according to the TV we are not bringing anyone in we have explored targets it's not worked out so much for a marquee signing can't say am surprised.

No one later the club said ANYTHING about a marquee signing.
I am very happy with the business the club has done over the summer and I am happy the direction the squad is heading.

Same story every year need at least 2 players for champions league but typically won't spend the money.

There was never a "marquee" signing coming in anyway, just a couple of fans drunk on CL cash.

Looks like the CEO has had a lot of people over AGAIN, I really do not believe that we are done with business today, BR knows that we are nowhere near the finished article that his standards (I believe) would want to step out and represent the club, so now Hardy comes to Hardy and we will see if football, History, Culture and tradition together with progress rule this club or if the board and its CEO could sell sand to Arabs.

We can say we are happy the way the squad is going I am to but I'm not happy if they think a million pound signing off the champions league fund is ecceptable nah not for me means the rest is tucked away in DD back pocket same old board. I'm probably going to get a lot of stick for this but we needed a creative mid and another striker.

Malika did you think we'd be the finished article after ONE transfer window like?

Agreed Sam. Striker and midfielder for me too and spending to date relative to cash in the door doesn't exactly reek of ambition for me. Great chance to make the champions league a bit more interesting and to sicken the forces of darkness and evil is missed if we don't get couple of signings over the line today.

Sorry sam don't agree mate.
Have you considered the possibility that some of the players were looking at aren't available?
Im delighted were not panic buying and blowing 30m on crap.
There's another window before the end of the season and if we need to improve then we will.
Keep the faith dude hh.

Kev83 of course not, but what I am saying is that BR would have targets that he would have sounded out the connections before CL qualification, and based on income generated from that, you could reasonably expect that deals would be done.

About players being available all players are available if you have the the guts to use some of the CL cash to get them over the line. I don't want panic buys either but show some ambition McCarthy was mentioned days ago now everyone is jumping on him. We leave it too late all the time. Am not really interested in the January window get the players in now bed them in and have a right go go at the group stage and you never know what could happen. I hope am wrong and someone comes in tonight.

Mccarthy would cost about 20m especially since there are other pl teams sniffing about.
Hendricks went to burnley for 10.5m today and chelsea are re-signing luiz for 32m.
So 30m doesn't but you much tbh and if you think they will spend 30m of CL cash for 6 group games your dreaming especially since this is our first qualification in 3 years.
The aim is to qualify for the CL not to win it dude although I admire your ambition.

What real difference would signing one more midfielder do to our hopes of getting out the group stages.
Even if the manager had spent
40 million this window we would be MILES behind Barcelona and Manchester city.
Both teams have player that could go for 100 million or more
James mcarthy isn't going to bridge that gap.
Wake up guys.

Kev83 spot on.
Tbh tho this has all started when someone mentioned marquee players and to my knowledge it wasnt pl or br so affectively some fans have set themselves up to fail.

It wouldn't make any difference Kev, so it's fine to keep banking money, never really use it and struggle
To qualify for champs league because our squads good enough for Scotland lol
No ones asking for tens of millions to be spent!
We're barley spending anything!
Fans have been moaning for years about lack of spends now the same ones are happy we aren't spending 😂 How the f@ck does that make sense?

We have just brought in the most expensive manager our club has ever had.
We have made 7 signings this window
We are stronger in every area of the field and look like a squad that could win a treble.
Celtic fans now a days would have moaned about the money spent on larsson lubo agathe and big victor.
How much we spend means nothing just as long as we add quality
This summer we can actually say we have.
The team is really exciting to watch when in full flow and that's what I care about.
17.) 31 Aug 2016

Is 30m not 10s of millions? Which is what SOME fans want invested into the squad.
Dont get your point.

Done it again kev well said.
Appointment of br alone showed ambition and so far signings have been great. This is an exciting time to be a tim given the last couple years.
Unfortunately for some its never enough

Pretty sure BR is quoted as saying he feels we needed a no10 type as we need bit more creativity. That for me says marquee as these types are exciting n tend to cost, the club doesn't need to say the word but I read into what the manager wanted n I doubt BR would accept a 3rd rate player in the role after having coutinho etc under his stewardship, he knows a no10.
20.) 01 Sep 2016
01 Sep 2016 07:52:52
LOL he said he was looking at a no10 and you took marquee from that!
When we were looking for a gk did you think that was marquee ie de gea maybe?
Or a rb did you think lahm would come in?

I don't see why all the doom and gloom . we are way stronger this year than we have been in several years. Rodgers can't build a decent team in one window. We have to ship out dead wood too so it could be 3 or 4 transfer windows before we get close to a team that Rodgers wants. Let's give the board and manager time to build.

Defo marco, I think the problem here is you have common sense.
Someone mentioned marquee and some folk ran with it although the marquee thing never came from the club itself. I said 2 weeks ago there won't be a marquee signing and i'm not happy to be proved right but realistically what were some fans expecting.
The disappointed fans only have themselves to blame and are missing the bigger picture.
