RD has tried his best but it clearly isn't good enough, we have too big a squad filled with much of the same type, time for a major clear out.

For me everything is just hard work. We're either starting well then falling away or it's the other way around. Even beating Hearts, they've just been promoted, their budget is around the same as a couple of our players, we beat them at home, big deal. I'm sure it seemed better in certain fans eyes because there is always an edge against them, for me though it's been one long season from hell. I watched us in the dark days, we had an excuse then, the other mob were signing top top players, and we were on our knees. They're not even in the league now. This is definitely the worst group of strikers the club has had in my time going to games, even in the 80's we had more than this. That said though, I still don't think Ronny is getting the best out the players. The midfield the other night was Brown/ Biton/ Johansen - all of them captains of their country, not one's even had a passable season. Lustig has hardly had a good game since Deila walked in the door. We've got Sviatchenko who's the player of season in Denmark, Boyata who's getting a game for arguably the best team in Europe, yet they look poor to average with us. Supposedly we had 30 players at various age groups away on international duty last week. For me we are underperforming, big time.

I agree with most of what you said Delphic but one thing most Celtic supporters seem to forget or don't understand is that football is not won by budgets (it helps a lot) or statistics, look at Leicester for instance they are the English equivalent of Inverness Dundee etc so does that mean that the supposed top managers in England deserve to be sacked? No of course not, however if Inverness were to win the league Ronny would undoubtedly be sacked. So my point is this you can identify any player in the world as being a good signing however we have seen with much better players than Celtic have things may not work out so if you identify a player at the top of his league worth 20mil he may flop however if you buy cheap you may find a diamond. Ronny has a bigger budget but if the players we need to make ourselves better are currently overlooked by Lawell due to his very shallow pockets we need a good scout, is park a good scout? In my eyes no. So then what good is the big budget when Lawell will only spend 3mil max on john parks dodgy finds? .

It seems some people were delighted with us dropping 2 points last night, it put fresh rage in their pens and got the anti R D back up and running . Despite how bad some of you have been and despite your lack of support and lack of confidence building, we are on the cusp of winning 5 in a row . This hasn't happened in many of your lifetimes, once in mind and other old fellows, so get away from your bitching and negative muck spreading and give credit where credit is due .

Most of the top Managers in England are sacked regularly Wenger is an obvious exception, Hughes is becoming a long lasting manager at Stoke and that isn't too long . Some clubs go through 2/ 3 managers in a season and still fail .
Delphic we had 33 players away on International duty . 18 from our first team squad and the remainder with various youth and under age Int .
Surely no greater testament could any manager receive as indication of doing a great job, top of league by five points and 18 players playing at a standard good enough that their International managers want them for fixtures.

Point I was making is that they 3 would be so happy to get the Celtic job they'll not make as much demands as a so called big named manager. at the minute none of them would even get an interview for a half decent club down south.

would love us to get a proven high profile manager but a really think it'll be the cheap option with either Lennon, big malky or Paul lambert. they 3 will say yes to PL and never demand much as they'll just be happy enough to have the job.

I agree with most but I see a lot in CKR and think if played through the middle would be a superb partner for wee Leigh.

I would love us to go for Brendon Rogers but with the current board we will always go for a cheaper option and a yes man. it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Ronnie was still in charge next season. we've become a joke of a club and the butt of all jokes is a disgrace the board have allowed this to happen.

Today at work was horrendous having to listen to gloats and the " rangers are the best team in Scotland"! In my 39 years I've never saw a old firm game where we have played so badly and not competed BUT as I told the idiots today yes we played horrendous but we still almost won the game in penalties which tells me the new club are no where near as good as they think. If we had a competent manager who can actually talk at the side of the pitch then they would have changed the tactics after 10 minutes and easily won the game. Ronnie has no clue, has no plan B, the players don't listen or play for him so time to go.

Why do we have to play 3 behind the striker can we not play 2 up top? I think we do have a shortage of good striker options but I think kazim Richards is never a left winger or man in the hole he's a central striker who would be a different player ( in my opinion) playing alongside LG. he wins headers, has pace and power and would be a good option to play alongside the wee man. LG looks tired and has been up top all season himself surely Ronny can see that.

To be honest guys i have been a critic of RD for months and can't understand what his formation/ tactics are all about and his constant chop and change of starting line ups, he always comes across really well in interviews and sounds knowledgable but when you watch the team play it's as though we have one plan for a game and regardless how the games going he sticks with it. He talks about high tempo and attractive attacking football but his ideas and instructions aren't getting carried out for whatever reasons. I hope we finish the season strong and win the double but with Ronny in charge i'm nervous. I think we need a major clear out of players and someone with fresh ideas with a good proven track record but who knows what PL and the board think. maybe there delighted with ronnys work. 😫.
