We find ourselves in a pretty strange situation due to the disastrous summer window we had. We possibly need at least 6 bodies in:
RB, Ch, back up Lb, Cm, left winger and 2 strikers.

Every position that we all thought should have been done in the summer.
However the effort of all the players and staff means we have a trophy in the cabinet top of the league and still in Europe. A few imaginative signings and maybe a few experienced ones will see us having another successful season.

As I right this, morelas has just escaped any punishment for his actions. surprise surprise.

{Ed033's Note - What you write could be right (especially about Morelos). :)


1.) 03 Jan 2019 16:16:21
Personally for me we don’t need cover for left back as Izzy is still good enough. He got hung out to dry against Aberdeen and should’ve played on Saturday. We do need a centre back tho, this boy Weah is seen as a winger, we need one striker for me as I think Griffith will travel to Dubai and a centre midfielder. They look to be signing Defoe and Davis who will be cracking signings for them I believe so we need to get something done.


2.) 03 Jan 2019 17:22:48
Agree with everything you've said Their John, 6 signings I should be the aim and a lot of the deadwood going out get the wage budget down, quality is what we need not the rubbish we have been signing, unfortunately it's 6 quality buys we need so it won't be cheap but we have skimped the last few years bar eddy, that new side sevco are in over 20m of debt I believe and still going strong with more buys Defoe and davis strange for a club that's got more outgoings than income and in so much debt in such a short life 2012 lol! Anyway the celts have plenty in the bank no debts and a billionaire owner i honestly don't understand why we are looking at players in the 1-3m bracket when we need quality to become better we should always be looking to improve but we haven't in the last 5 years we have got weaker this is the time to spend to assure the league title and get into the champions league were we belong and to give a good account of ourselves in the champions league too we are more than capable their is teams with a smaller budget than us done well in the champions league so we know we can get back to that level with wise buys fingers crossed we do the business hail hail.


3.) 04 Jan 2019 12:56:01
That will be lucky if Defoe is as good as Kenny Miller was for them, similar ages, similar dulled sharpness and stamina.


 

 

02 Jan 2019 16:04:38
Plenty of alarm bells have been ringing this season even before the shambles of the sevco game. The most glaring for me was a lack of fight and presence in the team.
Push the boat out and bring big Victor back. He will be leaving spurs so why not try?

If we bring the young striker in, why not bring an Andy Carroll in for 6 months to help. He would take some pressure off and give us a different option. I know he ain't the long term answer but he has something (if fit) that would ruffle up teams. One thing is for sure who ever comes in needs to hit the ground running.

Jungle john

1.) 02 Jan 2019 17:58:45
Andy Carroll would need to prove his fitness for me, that plus take a hefty wage cut, but must important is his fitness. Last thing we need is another striker on The sidelines.


2.) 02 Jan 2019 18:07:37
Andy Carroll to help What, the doctors and physios earn their wages?


3.) 02 Jan 2019 19:31:58
People are going daft about the Compper transfer but are talking about Andy Carol!
Yeah that makes a lot of sense.


4.) 02 Jan 2019 23:40:37
I did say if fit. if not Carroll that type of player. am sure the sevco defence were quacking in there boots with our attaching options.
We need a different option. gordon can't play the long ball cause there is no one to hold it up.
Did anyone read the comments from the young strikers manager. "very raw and one for the future"
We need something different.


5.) 02 Jan 2019 23:53:47
It's a risk but why not take a 6 month risk?


6.) 03 Jan 2019 00:34:28
Are we being serious with this Andy Carroll stuff he's made more appearances on a league of their own than a football pitch in the last six years he'd be far too big a risk for me guys.

{Ed0333's Note - the Loch Ness monster has made more appearances than Andy Carroll in the last 6 years


7.) 03 Jan 2019 02:15:33
Gordon can't get the ball past the half way line anyway.


8.) 03 Jan 2019 10:31:54
Andy Carroll started yesterday didn’t finish no impact made but played some part in my opinion not for me but am no picking the team the only one who knows is BR and his team so we just need to wait and see and when the player signs we will support them.


9.) 03 Jan 2019 10:56:08
Nessie is a better player as well.


10.) 03 Jan 2019 12:49:29
Rich t . even morales if he signed?


11.) 03 Jan 2019 12:50:25
We do need that other option up front but the best way to counteract that is play Bain over Gordon.


12.) 03 Jan 2019 17:59:04
Andy Carroll and Rodgers don't get on I believe, comments from Carroll about how he messed him about while at Liverpool.

I think the players that are there also need a bit of a bigger name or a signal of intent to get them going again. Our teams of old had winners in them with some pedigree, something I think going down the development route is misses.


13.) 03 Jan 2019 18:57:17
If anyone is concerned enough to say IF HE STAYS FIT we should run a mile.


14.) 04 Jan 2019 16:50:41
Would any1 consider llorente from spurs is older but he calibre player and is available.


15.) 04 Jan 2019 19:44:23
Andy Carroll has more court appearances than club appearances.

No investment. poor signings. poor team selection. poor tactics. Will we finish 2nd . cause on current performances we ain't winning the league.
For to long people have been complacent. just needing to turn up. we don't need to spend money. What a load of rubbish.

Jungle john

1.) 23 Sep 2018 15:16:38
The Celtic Board in many years to come will look at this season with either the following memory. 1. This is the exact point that we lost the faithful and the manager due to our poor decisions as a boardroom. 2. Jan 2018 was the moment we recovered our identity and put the champions back where they belong.

Its either way guys, if your at the big table take heid. We will not put millions into your bonus pots if you don't put the team on the pitch we deserve.


2.) 24 Sep 2018 14:11:23
Second would be a helluva achievement after the way we’ve started.
If the people win the league this year, then THE PREVIOUS 7 titles are meaningless. They can rightly argue it’s because they weren’t here.
We need to get to at least 9, but no one at the club seems concerned that we might not make 8.

I know am going to get slaughtered but here goes.
On top of a bad transfer window, rangers have spooked us.
Anyone denying it is kidding themself on.
We havent really had a great window under BR but as long as we knew they had no chance of catching us we were happy.
This time however in just one window it's clear for everyone to see there are going to take us all the way.

Not only has the window been bad, but I think what is worse is the boards lack of activity to try and react to wave of bad publicity they have come under from fans, media and pundits.

As for the players I bet they are praying new faces come in to freshen things up. but can anyone be sure this will happen.
Has the pretty bad mistakes made by BR in previous windows changed the way the board are thinking about is role.

After the moussoda affair, in which the club put a lot of time and effort into getting it over the line, along with the disaster that is commper and the form of Hendry given the board a headache over our transfer policy. Does the club want to take the power back.

Make no mistake about it these were BR signings.
With a week to go will be bring someone in who will go straight into the defence for the rangers game because that is what's needed.

Jungle john

1.) 27 Aug 2018 02:51:52
spooked us with who?


2.) 27 Aug 2018 06:53:38
They’ve won one game in there first 3 league games. If anything it’s hearts that are flying atm. That Goldson couldn’t handle a bit of physicality.


3.) 27 Aug 2018 07:39:05
Spooked us 😂
Hearts have just as much chance of catching us.
Same crap we heard on here about how Aberdeen were going to catch us during Ronnies time.


4.) 27 Aug 2018 08:15:02
They're now seeing what it's like to play midweek and at the weekend. not quite as easy as they made it out to be. If they do qualify they'll drop a lot of points as they don't have a big enough squad. If Gerrard thinks he can lose all 4 to us and still win the league he'll need to be winning these kind of games against your Motherwells and Aberdeens otherwise he'll be in for a shock.


5.) 27 Aug 2018 11:36:48
How have they spooked us they have conceded 4 goals in the league we have conceded 2 and WE are supposed to have a rubbish defence.


6.) 27 Aug 2018 12:04:06
They have won 1 drawn 2 if this is the former based on this would accrue around 62 points. Defensively poor conceding every game irregardless of what the papers are saying about their defence.


 

 

19 Aug 2018 23:41:03
At the start of the window we needed 3 players in my opinion to kick on. the lose of SA means I think we need 4.

the DB situation means I think we need 5.
A new RB. i don't think we should be fooled by gamboa lately. he is a gd back up or possible be pushed up one because he is better at attacking than defender.
2 new CDs. boyata and commper must go.
A midfielder .
A new LW.

Not long to go in the window and I think we will be lucky to get 2 in.
We are stale and pretty one dimensional.
Let's hope we can get MD and OE back playing together before the rangers game.
This is a game were we must put a marker down. we have to give them a bloody nose and stop there momentum.
I genuinely believe the will push us all the way.

How many players do you think we will need and how many do you think we will get in the window.

Jungle john

1.) 20 Aug 2018 04:31:02
Personally now I think we only need 2, Lustig will still do a job in the league and the europa. We are forgetting players like rigid, lustig and also boyata who hasn't played were at the World Cup. They have had next to no time off then straight into champions league qualification. Rodgers is doing the right thing by managing the team until we get to full strength. I think we need a centre back to play with Ajer and a CM to challenge ntcham and brown, arazani is different now class from what I have seen and we have Morgan and young Johnstone also. They have lost Murphy to injury and as soon as they lose a centre back or Morelos they are ****ed.

If Brown goes I hope he gets the fanfare he deserves. listening and reading things over the last few weeks you would think we were getting rid on a dud.
The man is a born leader. even if he isn't playing his winning mentality around the place could be crucial in helping us over the line.
Yes over the years he has had hard times but has been instrumental in the BR era.
I for one would love to see him around the place 10.
He is being made a scapegoat for fails of what could be described as a total miss management of the summer window were glaring areas of the team were never addressed.
Let's all do the broony.

Jungle john

1.) 18 Jan 2019 21:25:30
I don't think any of us really want rid of Brown as such. However, like all great players they have a time limit and Broony is not dumb. He has been great for us and we must recognise (as he does) that he is not as fast and sharp as he used to be. He is also having to work a lot harder due to our defensive failings. He can still do a job for us both on and off the park, just not as regular as in the past. If he decides to look for a final payday elsewhere then who can blame him? (God knows WE have been used often enough by big names looking for one) . If Broony stays on in some capacity then most of us will be happy. If not, good luck to him.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 23:26:49
If brown goes it’s a big blow for us. He may not be the brown of 2/3 years ago but still has something to offer. He’s our leader, the one man to get the message across to the players in the heat of the battle. He’s been an absolute battler in that midfield and I for one hope he’s here for the ten in a row.


3.) 19 Jan 2019 02:49:15
Agree Brown has had some poor games of late but he must be kept to the end of the season. He knows the club tradition and can fire up the lads before big games. If he goes who is going to do that half as well?


4.) 19 Jan 2019 11:56:59
As I said yesterday; the time for him to leave (if that's what he has decided) is the end of the season - hopefully with two more medals.
I appreciate the team has performed very well in his absence, with quicker tempo and slickness, but his influence and presence around the place should not be discarded half-way through a season?


 

 

07 Jan 2019 20:41:27
Think we are getting 3 younger Bhoys in early in the window.
Maybe the more experienced RB and CH will come in slightly later.

Want a bet on that OAB?


4.) 07 Jan 2019 21:35:41
Certainly not OAB, as long as a RB and CH did come in I'd be happy, only disappointment is the deal for the boy weah, wish it was longer give him more time to settle and more time to make his mark at Celtic, I seen the lad once in pre-season and he looked good he will add the pace in the final 3rd that we are craving for, as much as I like SS I feel he's lost half a yard but still has the quality, maybe BRs thinking is Weah out wide and give SS a chance through the middle help big Eddy out even though it looks like the Bayo deal is getting closer as I think he will need an adjustment period first, never seen the lad in action tbh I'd never even heard of him so not entirely sure what to expect from him.


 

 

05 Jan 2019 21:56:38
Safe to say the fans are split over burke. i say give him a chance. sinclaires states might look ok but Gordon's states make him the best keeper in the country and everyone wants shot of him.

We are crying out for a striker to hold the ball up. someone we can take to away games and give us a different option. its the away games that have cost us.
Eddy was always going to play off dembele.
Am sure the club have plenty of options and will not let us down.

Just some thoughts after the night before.
After watching last night's game I believe we are at a crossroads.
Stick or twist.
Stick with BR and back him with money in January. (If you think we have money)
Back his judgement in the transfer market. His knowledge of a player (If you think it's any good)
Back his tactics of a possession based game. (which has been domestically untouched)
After the debacle of the transfer window does he even see his future at the club.
Or do we twist.

A clear fallout has taken place between the board and manager and no matter how much they deny it I will never be convinced.
Has the board had enough of poor signings and want to take more control in that department.
Then you ask the question would a new manager bring the domestic success BR has brought to the club.

One thing is for sure last night we played a young energetic team who's first thought when they had the ball was to move it forward and with pace.
And press all over the park when they didn't have the ball.
Will we see a Celtic side do that under BR or any manager we may bring in. that's up for debate.
My thoughts are we have a financially sound, well run business model. A club with very clever people at the helm.
And a top manager. who has brought great levels of success and enjoyment to the club.

If both parties can work together it's a formidable combination that will only bring more success our way.
What's your take on our current situation.

Jungle john

1.) 05 Oct 2018 18:19:14
In my opinion I think Rogers has definitely taken this squad as far as he can regarding Europe . When he initially came in he obviously improved the playing squad, nowadays I don’t really look forward to the European games as you can never really enjoy them, as you get the feeling we are never far away from a hiding . There was talk a while ago that we are not champions league level, it seems we have dropped down to the lower levels of the Europa . If I’m wrong I’d be happy but I can’t see us beating Leipzig or Salzburg at home . In saying this, I still believe in Rogers but my point at the start meant with this squad at the minute has probably gone as far as it can. I can’t see us getting a better manager in, so we need to back him financially in January, with our eye on finishing this season strongly and have players bedded in early for qualifiers.


2.) 05 Oct 2018 18:27:26
I remember RD proclaiming this 'high-press, quick tempo' philosophy - as do many other managers in the game today, but to be perfectly blunt, how many of the current (and recent) Celtic squad have accepted/ adhered to this style?
At present we have a number of 'luxury' players who may have skill and ability, but are far too set in their ways for chase and pace.

It remains to be seen what will happen with BR in the current uneasy climate of the corridors of Celtic Park, but at present he has the backing of the support and the players - if not the board?
His record is second to none in a two season period (barring big Jock) and hopefully we will continue to succeed; but there is real improvement needed from all concerned, especially domestically.
At present Europe seems a step to far for many of this team and maybe even BR himself, but domestic dominance has to be priority.

Europe is always a bonus and many of us have been lucky enough to have seen some historical and unforgettable Celtic displays, however, this team - and management team (in Europe) are too short of savvy, big game nerves and confidence - plus real quality in vital positions right through the spine of our team to compete.


3.) 05 Oct 2018 19:22:02
Totally agree oab, although Europe is a bonus we should as a club our size expect a little more in it . I’d really like us to push the boat out one season and spend quite heavily on young talented players . It would probably give us two seasons of the type of football the last few managers have spoken about and if they are young we recoup and make a profit on the above players when we sell them after the two years .


4.) 05 Oct 2018 20:00:17
We seem to say the same thing year after year about getting players in early to bed them in for the Champions league qualifiers but we never do it.
I don't know the details of Lawwell's contract with us but any bonus he gets should be linked to us qualifying for the Champions league. It looks to me that he can make profits for the club by selling players regardless of how results are on the pitch, that can't be right.
In my opinion we seem to buy players with the sole intention of making a profit on them, there doesn't appear to be much ambition to take us to a higher level. In the last couple of years all the talk has been about how much money we would get for Dembele, no one ever seems to consider that if we could improve ourselves then we might be able to have held on to him. Is it so unreasonable to want us to benefit from the work we have done on some of these youngsters rather than just preparing them for their inevitable move.
The club need to wake up and see the gradual decline in our playing standards, it's not just in Europe but there has been a drop off in our domestic form. We are dropping points to teams that even a year ago would not have happened, our form has dipped for so long now that it's got to be more than a blip.
To maintain our dominance domestically, we need to start investing in the playing squad. That has to be a priority over balance sheets.


5.) 05 Oct 2018 22:41:39
First time poster. Feel I have to get frustrations out there.

Everything last night was predictable.

RB Salzburg are a £93m squad. Celtic are a £64m squad. Salzburg don’t get beaten at home. CFC are finding it difficult to get results travelling.

TRFC are reputedly £34m squad with Rapid Vienna £23.5m.

Salzburg are 4x the team of Rapid Vienna and they were at home.

Lustig is getting old. Hendry is inexperienced and out his depth at this level. To continue with him is to offer an open door to opposition.

I believe Brendan Rodgers has made errors as manager and despite his excellent successes, is not beyond healthy criticism. It’s how we improve.

We missed big Filip in Defence last night. I believe Mulumbu can play central defence, Tierney also, with Izzaguire at left back.

It all went wrong in Defence when sviatchenko got sacked and Brendan first put Bitton in there then Ajer. What’s wrong with Simunovic? Brendan also purchased Gamboa and Compper but no contribution in Defence from them.

Finally, getting put out the Champions league by AEK Athens (£34m squad) when we were £84m and had Dembele was negligent.


6.) 05 Oct 2018 23:41:12
Playing such a possession heavy style is always going to make things difficult for us in Europe. When a lesser quality team comes up against a team with higher quality, the most common way of closing the gap seems to be playing a counter attacking style. It’s unlikely we’re ever going to do that domestically.

However I don’t think Salzburg looked anything spectacular last night. Again we seem to give away soft goals. Although I appreciated Rodgers trying a different style they seemed clueless at executing it.

In regards to Rodgers, he’s a good coach but he needs better players. That’s partly his fault too, his signings mostly have been poor. We need to have someone else recruiting and Rodgers working with the players.

First and foremost though as we’ve been saying for years we need to get rid of the deadwood. Looking at the bench last night was scary, none of those players would even get in the Rosenborg team!


7.) 06 Oct 2018 00:23:38
It doesn't matter if you play fast tempo or slow tempo or high press or low press or hot press or cold press, if you give possession away too cheaply, it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter.


8.) 06 Oct 2018 00:37:22
Is nothing to do with how much the squads cost, it's to do with how good the squad is, how motivated the squad is, how well managed the squad is, too much emphasis with some supporters on how much money a player gets paid rather than how much does a player want to be in the team, Dembelle made the difference when he came in, those games against Man city, and the rest of the season, I think Moussa is a top talent but his head got turned and he was ofski, Eduward maybe has a lot of potential, but he is no Dembelle, I think his mind is elsrwheres, there might be more to that car crash, and it is praying on his mind, or something else, he is only twenty,


9.) 06 Oct 2018 04:30:34
It's all about the desire which sadly wasn't there on Thursday We need guys who do the hard part of the game I feel the teams soft at the moment a few have gone Henderson Sviachenco and Johansen rightly or wrongly they were all a bit harder than some of what we have at the minute. but we are still way better than anything else up here we need some pace and power all this crap about Griff carrying weight he's most likely been lifting them which can cause you to slow up and look more bulky Forrest and Christie look the same.

As said previously England have ruined the transfer market if Brendan is really that frustrated with his lot up here which I have my doubts he will go at the end of the year hounded out in the same way Lennon Strachan and others were before him they didn't want to go but did funny that.

All were successful in their own way but the negativity that spreads over the club it's causing instability the rubbish we see or hear in the press or on live Tv now? Fat Griff. China, Aston Villa, Newcastle. Man Utd OK are we really going to sign players on 100k a week to keep the infallible one happy.

Brendans ego wouldn't allow him to go back to the Championship and we would be bust like that mob across the road if we keep spending on over priced players but that's the pressure if he can't win the league with what he's got end of January he shouldn't be here next season.

If he stays and completes his objectives then he will go down as a true great if not he got lucky right place right time well that's what will be said and we move on we are being out priced in the transfer market for players we can't pay top cash for rubbish houses from England 3 in a row for Brendan will be fine if he goes he goes.

Tommy Burns wasn't so lucky the difference being there was never the threat of him leaving he got the players in got them playing and who knows if he got that other season in but it's all about lady luck they both have that same demeanour when your not winning it's like when the wife not coming up with the goods it's not fair.
But life's always better on the Green side of the city.
Hail Hail.


10.) 06 Oct 2018 11:19:30
The way Salzburg played was how we played under BR in our first season. Fast attacking football. Pressing all over the park to win possession and mounting wave after wave of attack. We haven't seen that since early part last season. I don't know if the players aren't fit enough to do that all season or they just can't be bothered with the philosophy anymore. We seem too slow in our build up from the back and our attack is boring, slow sideways passing and minimal movement. We lack physicality up front and creativity out wide with the form of Sinclair and Forrest up and down. But again lack of movement and hesitancy up front isn't help either Wideman. Griffiths looks fat and unfit too. He isn't half the player he was doesn't play on the shoulder wanting the ball over the top anymore either. He seems to try come short and hold the ball up which isn't his strong point thus leaving him further away from goal where he's most affective. Everyone just needs to get their finger out from the board to the manager to the players as this isn't current form isn't good enough. This is the important month as the top teams all likely to drop points against each other, October is the month we need to find top gear and put a marker down and get back to the top of the league.

So on the eve of the new season starting our manager has no new faces in his squad to push us on further.
No new faces as he tackles the task of getting us into Europe for the 3rd straight year.
Yet fans on here slaughter each other from some of them daring to have a go at the club for not being active in the window.

BR has won every trophy he has competed for in Scotland and lead us to 2 years in the CL. surely he has the right to have asked for a bit more backing.
Yes we will bring some in but we're the preparation work.

It’s all part of a cunning plan to dupe the opposition into believing we don’t care about getting better. Think of the hotel, new pitch and light show.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 16:25:15
Do people seriously believe the club heirarchy do not want to get better player so in the squad?
Do people not want the hotel, investment, improve pitch and floodlights?
I do
I also want Players who will make us better and who the manager wants.

Better quality will come when we have CL football
Options will increase when the overinflated EPL transfer window shuts.

The core of our double treble winning squad Is largely the same, Paddy never did much last season, the hair is a loss granted, but given the choice I’d have French eddy.

I take the point that you have to speculate to accumulate but this years signings will be of real benefit to next years qualifying, our squad should be enough to qualify this year, then with the prospect of CL football, sign quality and build.

Magicpole I take onboard many of your points and i appreciate you are a pragmatist, but they way I read your posts, you come across as doom and gloom 24/ 7. It’s your opinion (as you constantly inform us all the time) , but Munns opinion is that some people can be positive without being blinkered as you put it.

Help the faith brothers the quality will come.

The faith brothers? Are they a Gospel choir? Why do they need our help? 😉.

I will go to the docs for happy pills. No players for the CL and start of the season plays havoc with my endorphins production. I am getting drunk now. Be laughing any time soon. You can rely on good gin to deliver.

Island celt, not too sure our squad is strong enough to qualify for CL. We msy do it, largely depends who we get if we beat Athens? Losing Dembele is a blow. If he was fit then him and Edouard are a handful for any team and i would be much more confident we could do it. However take him out and i worry we where the support for Eddy comes from. Brown has an injury. He didn't look 100% this week. that's maybe where we need a McGinn to partner N'tcham. Without Brown we don't have that drive. I absolutely love Brown. Sinclair not firing. Still a bit weak at the back. Hendry is not the solution at CL level. Go buy McGinn now. The Aussie is coming and he may be, who knows a replacement for Paddy. However we need them in now. AEK will be difficult. The next round even more so. Rogic is back and hopefully Boyata and Lustig as well so we will get better but apart from our strongest starting 11, i think we are light.

Make mine a "Double Treble! "😂😂😂.


8.) 03 Aug 2018 17:36:00
I’m thinking a Treble Treble.

Still talking about Trebleution.

Dam predictive text, I would have laughed if it said ‘close brothers. ’.

Good points IC. however if the gd quality players are coming in when we reach the CL who do you think will come if we don't make it.
We are constantly told we have this super scouting network. who are they scouting if we can only get gd players when we are in the CL.
On here last season post were saying about the new back 4 of AR, JH, CA, KT. now they want lustig nd boyata back asap.
BR has been left blowing in the wind.
If we don't make the CL the people slating magicpole will be the first ones shouting there mouths of about the lack of signings.

Haven't we learned previous lessons of just signing players for the sake of it? You end up with a squad size of 30 full of the Temmu Pukki's, Amido Balde's and Nadir Ciftci's of this world.

Spot on Island Celt if we can offer Champions League football the better quality of player we can attract.

We smashed our transfer record so to say the board is not backing the manager is nonsense!

When were we last told about our super scouting network?

They have shown there hand for next season. 2 spfl players that wouldn't make our bench. 2 epl players past there best. i don't buy into it.
We will bring players in that fi our policy and hopefully hit the ground running. maybe even a bit of a surprise also.

I did say if fit. if not Carroll that type of player. am sure the sevco defence were quacking in there boots with our attaching options.
We need a different option. gordon can't play the long ball cause there is no one to hold it up.
Did anyone read the comments from the young strikers manager. "very raw and one for the future"
We need something different.

If we have been in negotiations for players then that means there is some money to spend.
We have to lower our expectations on who we think will come to Scotland.
We have been caught with our pants down for CL qualifiers so we now have the chances to strenghten for what is going to be a much more closer domestic campaign.
If the the hearts game is anything to go with we then it shows we are not as strong a squad as we may think.

Pato isn't the answer. i would be shocked if we were contemplating that transfer.

We will not and can not spend 9 million for OE to play second fiddle to MD.
Does this mean it's a change of shape next season maybe 2 up front. or is DM maybe away.
Hopefully things starting to ramp up.

I think BR latest comments are another dig at the board.
I believe he isn't getting the targets he wants and that the club are once again in full control who comes in.
There has to be a balance of old and young. I understand maybe a project to come in at LB because we have KT. maybe even give Ralston a shot as number 1 RB.
However we need 2 dominant CHs with
some experience and l believe and 1in the middle of the park also.
BR comments mean the likes of wanyama coming in are all pie in the sky.
I also think it means we don't have the pot of cash we all think we should have.
I doesn't however mean that with good scouting we can't pick up some good players. the question is longer term will BR see it the same way.

I find it funny that fans are getting criticised for wanting to get new players in when it is the manager that added fuel to the fire with his comments.
He is saying the squad is weaker, he is saying he thought more would have been brought in.

Yes it great we won the treble but some of the games and some of our play was rubbish to say the least.
This is the first time he has publicly said things that are out of line with what he has previously been saying about PETER and DERMOT.
We will judge the window when it shuts let's hope we still in the big cup when it does shut.

You do know it's the manager himself that wants players in. i could understand fans slaughtering other fans if the manager had came out and said, the squad is fine and it will see us through this season.

But he hasn't. he has said he even he thought there would be more players in.
We as fans can argue the toss all day long but BR wants better players brought in and that's what really counts.
