Just been sent this but taking everything with pinch of salt and thought I'd share

" Players told today about Howe, being announced on wednesday. Was at lennoxtown on monday or Tuesday with McKay, lawwell etc

Taylor, forrest, McGregor, welsh, bain, turnbull all done the new strip photoshoot today

Ajeti faked an injury for aberdeen game, got caught out, heavily fined. Out the door in summer

Duffy also faked injury or C.V. after a trip to Ireland, fined heavily and sent packing

From the mouth of a senior players dad".

Well on Tuesday he was drinking with his mate in London - FACT.

He should never have been signed based on one good season 3 years ago. clearly no homework done.

No way Howe made it up to Scotland, into Lennoxtown without some hack getting wind of it. Especially if a players da finds out. Seems like cobblers, the rest of it seems probable tho.

It'll definitely happen one way or the other. HH.

Every day it’s some rumour saying Howe will be announced in next day etc etc
My take on it is DOF announced 1st then once DOF, Chief Executive meet they choose their outstanding candidate, go to board for approval, then offer job and get contract signed.
This waiting on staff from Bournemouth etc is nonsense IMO.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 May 2021 22:50:48
GGGG, in all fairness there hasn't been any credible rumour suggesting Howe was going to be announced the next day. Perhaps there have been media comments saying all sorts of things in order to get hits on their websites but never has there been any sensible suggestion that something is happening 'tomorrow'.
My understanding is that Howe will be our next manager.
The DOF role, if there is to be one at all, is less clear. HH.

If we are waiting for the back room staff at Bournemouth to be finished then if they keep winning it will be the end of May before Howe is announced.

Kev T2, if it were up to me I'd shortlist:

Jindrich Trpisovsky.
David Moyes.
Phillip Cocu.

That would be my 1st, 2nd 3rd choice in that order.

I believe all are realistic targets and would consider us.

If it was Keane or Howe though I'd personally prefer Keane with the right backroom team.

Del Bhoy
Who do you think would be Keane's backroom staff in this Eutopia you dream of?
Or perhaps more accurately, what would their roles be?
Here are a few necessary skills required, maybe you can put names to the roles? :

1) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker
2) Someone to tell him the game has moved on and his bully boy tactics won't work
3) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker
4) Someone to explain to him that although he was a terrific player he has failed overall as a manager
5) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker

HH.

@weewhitey

Bigger transfer budget - Of course its the EPL, that'sa given.

Bigger wages - If DD wanted him, he could match or better his salary with ease. West Hams best season in years, you'd think the owners would be throwing everything at him to sign a new long term deal. That hasn't materialised. I thought Moyes was very coy about his future stating the decision of the trigger of another year in his contract is his choice. Maybe he's considering other options or maybe its a tactic in negotiating a new deal. Who knows?

Champions League Football - He can have that year in year out with Celtic if he is a success. Its been one of our biggest pitfalls over the years and it should certainly be an expectation from the board that the new manager at least qualifys for the group stages on a more regular basis. I don't think West Ham will finish 4th this year and I certainly don't think they will be challenging for it next year or the season after.


@BestyBhoy

I'm not sure if you have jumped the gun and not read the full thread.

Roy Keane would not be my number one choice for the role. He probably wouldn't get in my top 5. there's no dreaming of any Eutopia here.

I have simply stated if it was between Roy Keane or Eddie Howe for the role I think Keane would be the better choice, especially if the backroom team was right.

Since you have asked the question how about Harkin DOF, Keane Manager, Maresca No.2 and an older head like John Robertson as a coach as well. Harkin and Keane will be well aware of the best coaches, scouts, sports scientists etc at City or Utd or anywhere down south in fact that may be within our reach.

Compared to Eddie Howe, Stephen Purches and Stephen Fletcher I'd take the above team of serial winners any day of the week. that's a good enough football reason for me.

If its Eddie Howe he will 100% get my backing and support. My gut feeling is that he is a massive gamble. I think Howe and his team will get the culture shock of their lives when they realise the intensity and scrutiny they will come under when they are expected to win every game domestically. Keane would be better equipped to handle that side of it along with the main stream media up here as well.

Don't be afraid of a bit of arrogance. Its not done the likes of Klopp, Pep, Jose, Conte or even Rodgers any harm over the years. In fact name me one successful manager in the past 15 years who isn't an arrogant b*****d.

As said previously, its all about opinions lads.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 May 2021 13:35:45
Just passing on what I've heard from a couple of mates in London, Howe is being linked with Spurs. Can't see it myself but it makes me wonder what our bored are doing behind the scenes because it's going to take something special till get us all going again after this shocker of a season. I have a feeling Kennedy could get it. HH.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

04 May 2021 13:51:19
Not a chance that Howe will be going to Spurs and there is even less chance of Lennedy getting the Celtic job, he has had 8 games in charge so far and won 3.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 May 2021 14:21:41
I would expect Tottenham to have a higher profile man in mind and are waiting until Summer for alternative? John Kennedy, has shown virtually zero, as caretaker to suggest he has the slightest clue on managing any team, never mind Celtic - a club in total disarray.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 May 2021 15:50:01
There's not a chance Kennedy will get it.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 May 2021 15:58:16
Spurs will go more high profile I think. As for Kennedy, given the way he’s continued in the same way lennon left off I wouldn’t put him in charge of the under 18s. I accept the players are massively to blame this season, but Kennedy had 8/ 9 games roughly to try something different wether it be tactical or selection, and in the main went with the same players thatve let us down all season long . Should’ve played some of the youth, dembele etc, and should’ve gave ajeti, soro and for me even barkas the remaining games, couldn’t do much worse and he done nothing. As for Howe, if it’s not Howe then it begs the question what really is going on And if it is Howe, I seriously hope he’s working his ass off behind the scenes searching for players to bring in.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 May 2021 16:02:34
Not a chance Kennedy will get it.

Still not confident or negative around whether Howe will get it, not really seen him linked with many other clubs lately and i don't think reports saying a deal is almost done would be there if their isn't some truth.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 May 2021 17:06:20
Garry, I’d completely agree with you regarding Howe . I’m frustrated it hasn’t been reported yet that we have him .
Like you say, if it’s not him what have the club been doing?
We all know we need a massive amount of players for next season, but if we are to go down the dof route, is it not their job to look at players and find them, and then the coach is just to utilise them . If so, I find it even more disheartening that we haven’t finalised this position.
It’s like the club is oblivious to the fans feelings and the position we find ourselves in going forward.
We really need some direction, and fast .

Agree1 0Disagree

04 May 2021 19:11:15
Quinn1888, it’s all ifs buts and maybes just now, but let’s say Howe is indeed the next manager but doesn’t want to take charge till this seasons finished, why not announce the dels done and in the meantime howe is assessing the current team and working hard looking at new recruits. surely that would appease fans rather than the deafening silence we’re getting right now.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 May 2021 19:22:54
If your post is true then your mates are ar the wind up.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 May 2021 19:45:38
Agree with much of the above, I personally still think it's Eddie Howe who'll take over and I hope he is indeed putting together a list of quality first team players behind the scenes.

As for Lennedy, my views on him are well known on the site, suffice to say, even the supporters he still has must now be scratching their heads at how he's performed since stepping in as caretaker manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 May 2021 11:23:57
Kennedy being appointed will cause a revolt that woukd lead to our gravy train board woukd be ousted. It's that bad, so they won't even consider it. Howe going to Spurs is far more likely and if they ask him, he woukd take it. 70 days. Let that sink in. 70 days and the useless barstewards on our board still haven't got him. Useless cants.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 May 2021 15:52:31
I heard a rumour that there is a crack team working on new rumours. I can't wait to see what won't be happening anytime soon.

I've heard that Forster is open to signing permanently for us next season. If true, it would be a start - just need to find another 10 to play alongside him.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

02 May 2021 21:15:04
Too late he had his chance there is no way Forster will b at celtic next season. More chance of big Aurthur joining.

02 May 2021 21:15:28
That would be great pedro. To be fair turnbull, mcgregor and Welsh deserve to be there too. I know today was a disgrace but l would have those lads. Hopefully soro is still there and hopefully we can get Lewis ferguson for some real bite in the middle.

02 May 2021 21:51:22
Had his chance so NO.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 21:51:41
McGregor can go and how many goals does Welsh need to cost us another poor game from him. Would loan him out to see how he does but he's been average and some fans were calling him player of the season, shows how bad we are.

Turnbull is a decent player but very lazy and lack heart.

Agree3 0Disagree

02 May 2021 21:57:16
I'm on the same page as you Ter with the players mentioned.
The rest need to be sold, sent back or released.
A new chapter should be about to start for our club, new blood and a bright future. Hail Hail.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 May 2021 22:00:06
Just what I heard Rich.
If the big man was open to coming back, we'd be mad not to talk to him as the 3 keepers we've presently got on our books, combined, aren't as good as FF.
Time will tell.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 22:14:21
I agree pedro we would be mad not to sign him. The fans that don't are the same cringy fans that won't mention brendan Rodgers name or even worse the fans that burned his book haha.

{Ed007's Note - If not wanting to sign a player that lied to Neil Lennon & Peter Lawwell faces and then led them a merry dance all summer makes me a "cringy fan" I'll take that all day long.}

Agree2 0Disagree

02 May 2021 22:39:00
I know he lied but i would still sign him. Brown also lied to lawells face this year wonder if fans will not mention his name next year.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 23:33:27
Sorry Dc but what have u been watching this year. Turnbull has probably been our best player along with ajer this season and u are calling the lad lazy and lacking heart. Welsh is a young guy who got dropped in the deep end and has done a decent job and is developing in every game. And finally mcgregor yes has been poor this season but the lad has played non stop for at least 2 years at least and been played out of position under the current management to cover for brown.

If you are going to pick out players to have a go at try Duffy, laxalt, Kenny, nctham, brown, bitton, eddy, all the keepers, griffs, ajeti, Christie to start with!

Yes today no one was good but the whole season has been terrible but to have a go at those 3 guys is a joke.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 23:50:08
Forster can't get a run in his team out the England set up if we did not know him before would we go for him now.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 May 2021 07:57:27
Some Celtic would forgive anything. Forrest lied, stalled and played Celtic/ Lennon like a cheap piano. Now some people want to forget everything. Have some respect for the club you support and tell him to FECK OFF. HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 May 2021 10:10:26
If there is any chance of getting Forster back to the club, then my opinion is we should do everything in our power to make it happen as the boy is top drawer.

If he were to return then I would move Barkas on in the summer and keep Bain and Hazzard as backup.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 May 2021 11:31:39
Have you ever seen turnbull track back or actually follow through with a tackle and not pull out so yes he lacks heart. Welsh imo isn't good enough the boy can't defend. Ajer has alwayd been overated and McGregor had given up.

I could have a go at the other players you mentioned but everyone on here already has but some players who have been just as bad are getting a free ride. there's not been 1 player this season who deserves any praise.

Unbelievable! Same sxxt in every game. How Kenny is playing is Unbelievable. The guy has been brutal in both games against them. The sooner this season is over the better. No soro again either!

Agree0 0Disagree

No excuses today.
It’s time to start putting those chances away.
I’ve bet Celtic to win and score at least 3 goals.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 11:00:49
I would of preferred Ajer at RB with Biton at CB. On plus side its great to see Forrest back, I think he will make a difference down right wing.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 May 2021 11:12:53
Buzz l hope u r right but that side gives me no confidence. Kenny has been brutal against them and looks scared of his life to go forward. As for eddy how he is playing l don't know. Unreal talent yes, but the guy have no interest in being at celtic. Eddy of old would have scored a few the last day with the chances he had. I hope this side can put in some kind of performance for the fans and the famous Jersey they should be proud to wear but l have my doubts. My heart said 1 - 1 but my head said 3 - 1 to them. Please god l hope my head is wrong.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 May 2021 11:39:06
My only problem with the lineup is Kenny.
Forrest will be our only out ball. An if Barasic man marks him then Kenny will not overlap an exploit space.
Griff for me over Eddy would have been the call. He plays on the shoulder, an is another out ball.

Latest news I've heard is that Harkin and Howe will be confirmed as the new double act.
It turns out Richard Hughes was never in the running to begin with for the DOF role and the Harkin deal was done on a gentleman's handshake a few weeks ago with the club waiting to get everything in line in order to make one announcement for all positions in the coming days.
JK will be staying at the club although I have heard nothing definite about his new role. HH.

bestybhoy, all things considered I think Harkin and Howe (plus Howe's coaching team) would be a positive and fresh start.

A D. O. F is important, to put in place a lasting footballing structure and Harkin can bring a lot to the table.

As Head Coach, Howe is young, ambitious and looking to reestablish his credentials.

The future's bright, the future's Green + White. 👍.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 May 2021 17:45:25
Yes Pedro, I think they would be good.
Remember though it's just a rumour and has absolutely no credibility until it happens or someone else is unveiled.
You'd like to think the club has things in place by now because if they're still looking around and considering other options after so long then it wouldn't be a good sign but I do honestly believe there is a lot of work going on in the background that we will never know about.
Here's hoping we get some good news soon. HH.

Agree1 0Disagree

01 May 2021 18:50:05
I think I saw in the betting that Howe is out to 1/ 16 with the nearest out to 10/ 1 usually a pretty clear sign it's happening when that happens.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 May 2021 01:14:04
