I don’t know what anyone else feels here, but right now I am totally sick of the board at Celtic. I have never came out and slagged Lawwell and co, but has Lawwell's ego actually got to the point where Celtic would be better getting rid of him?

We are a weaker side than last year, and the team has required defenders, and just a general freshen up for a couple of seasons.
The happenings at the club currently is sickening, we have a good manager who has turned the club around, but a chief executive who wants to weaken us from a position of strength.
Am I being a drama queen, or does anyone else have concerns?

If we don't strengthen between now and end of August, the club will have given up all hope of pushing on and improving. The defence needs strengthening. My concern has always been we have John Kennedy and Chris Davies as coaches, both of whom never cut it at highest level and I am not convinced they even know what needs to be improved. As for Lee Congerton, now is his opportunity to prove doubters wrong. Will he step up?

The board are devoid of real ambition and this year that has been shown it all its brilliant colours. Lawells ego is a problem, all the rubbish about his duel with Petrie cost us McGinn. His dithering cheapskate mindset has cost us £65m. If I had the power I would sack him.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 16:29:51
Couldn’t of said it better just said something similar on here but we’ve still got the fans that think we’re going to stroll it have to laugh or i'd greet, not got a clue.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 18:44:49
Board sanctioned the bringing of 5 players last January . A team that only lost 2 bit-part players this window shouldn't need many new signings especially as we are double treble winners.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 19:42:55
I think we needed defenders though. And is that a respectable way to talk about two players who contributed to our success these last few years? I know your sensitive when others slag players. Isn’t that you being a hypocrite? I would say so.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 19:45:31
I think, although we are off the back of a double treble season - following on from the once in a lifetime, 'Invincible' term, some of us are worried that we fail to keep improving from a position of strength; as has happened to previous Celtic teams over the decades.
There is no doubt that we still have some great quality and talent, but the manager has said himself that we are 'light' in certain areas and there is room for improvement going by recent performances.

7.) 21 Aug 2018 19:50:28
Old man Chris with some of your comments on here in recent weeks I'm starting to think you either love a good troll or you are a person in disguise!

8.) 21 Aug 2018 20:30:03
To be honest I posted something similar this time last season and was met with "we'll still win the league by 30 points haw haw" . The other teams in the spl are continuing to strengthen and we aren't. The addition of eddy permanently is a cracking bit of business but not enough to push us forward and improve. We've lost Armstrong and Roberts, 2 players that can make something from nothing and they haven't been replaced. If I had a say in it I would make sure Boyata never stepped foot at paradise again and I would replace him, always thought he was a bomb scare anyways.

9.) 21 Aug 2018 21:19:15
I rarely if ever agree with OMC but his post above is spot on.

10.) 21 Aug 2018 23:49:07
Yeah we are standing still. going backwards while others are getting stronger. With the money we earned we should've got a few class players in and none of this would be up for debate. Now we've crashed out of CL and lost to Hearts it seems the panic has set in a little. It's hard to judge right now as we've been unlucky woth injuries. Once OE and MD are back playing together we'll see the shape take form that was worked on from pre season. Still think we need to sort out our defence and add/ replace key areas or it could be a long uncomfortable season.

11.) 22 Aug 2018 14:29:26
I’ve accepted the board have no ambition, and that we might not win the league, there’s nothing us fans can do though, Lawwells not going anywhere, it’s a case of like it or lump it, as for McKenna, not worth the fee, and underwhelming, but what else would you expect, as for Lee Congerton, he’s a bigger wage thief than Compper.

12.) 22 Aug 2018 18:34:29
I think the problem we have as only cane to a head with management and board fairly recently . min January 5 players came in, M two were centre backs, I wonder when or even if the manager realised we had a problem at centre back . Was B R happy with his centre defence until Boyata said he was for the road . This could explain why we seem to be so far behind in getting a new defender . Brendan may have thought that Boyata and Jozo or Boyata and Ajer would be his pairing with Hendry learning his way as stand-by .
The above would appear to give us good cover and us a good defence, but Boyata spoiled that and at the pre AEK first match B R seemed not his usual pleasant self . Boyata shook him.

Good to see the ex assistant coach of Belgium, urging Boyata to stay at Celtic.

1.) 04 Aug 2018 23:48:31
No looked at a league table in years and don’t see any reason look for a few years more 😏.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 23:41:03

1.) 20 Apr 2018 23:02:08

2.) 20 Apr 2018 23:03:05

4.) 21 Apr 2018 01:10:41

5.) 21 Apr 2018 06:35:46
Becareful there are some coo's pretending to be horses😉.

6.) 21 Apr 2018 08:27:50
Defo best keeping my money in my pocket when it comes to gamble 👍 I fancied young master myself, and a wee big outsider Alzamaar, which is probably why I get beaten all the time 👍.

If the story is true, you would really need to know who the players are, and what sort of money that’s required to buy them. I believe that we do penny pinch, but also think we have far too many players picking up a decent wage, and never playing, so new players must be 1st team picks, and not more squad players or prospects.


{Ed007's Note - Just ignore it, the story simply isn't true and thankfully not many posters on here take a pile of $hite on their morning cereal.}

Need to disagree mally, also don’t think we shoukd play the 2 youngsters Ajer and Hendry together either.

I personally don’t think Hendry is good enough for Celtic, maybe he will improve, but at this point in time I think he slows play down, and gets caught out regularly.

He’s still the best right back we have.

Name the 4 defenders and 2 goal keepers kev, as well as fees.
Some signings don’t work out, but your thinking is we just stick with the dross, there has been plenty money brought in that more than covers the bad buys that have been made.

That’s complete nonsense Chris, the fact remains that Celtic have an enormous amount of money in the bank, are making record breaking profits and sponsorship deals, selling players for fortunes.
The deficiencies in defence has been there for years, and I don’t want to see £m in bank or profits, I want to see good football on the park.

Their excuses are, the team we’re tired from midweek game, and they showed Celtic too much respect, they also blamed the referee, but from where I was sitting he let them away with murder.

Coybig, Armstrong played 40 games last year, a blind man on horseback can see we are a lot weaker than last year. we keep hearing about all the money we have, how big profits we make, stupid fancy lights etc,
Me and my 3 boys have season books, my hands never out my pockets at parkhead, and here we are again, making fortunes in the transfer market, and bringing in freebies and loans, it’s an absolute disgrace, and I’m totally sickened by the way we’re being run at the moment.
