Big announcement coming soon from new ceo when in the door he will announce the way forward starting on the 19th.

Says who?

Think about it the new CEO starts that week he will come in and with him he will lay out the new team to take Celtic forward whoever that might be.

Agree0 0Disagree

I'd love for him to throw down a proper statement of intent. An ambition of reaching the Europa League final within 5 years, something tangible like that.

You hate predicting a "Big Announcement" is coming do you not Rich?
So is it still happening next week like you said and if so what is this big announcement?
We all know the CEO is incoming and a new manager is needed but I doubt the new manager will be announced any time soon so what is it you're referring to?

I know you cannot rely on media talk but it seems like Howe is a) using Celtic to drum up interest in EPL or b) not got the bottle to handle the pressure.
Our Board as usual have not handled this great either, and to be truthful, I think they are waiting to see how Kennedy does against the sevvies, if he wins they will offer him the manager's job, a cheap option in their eyes, but the fans will never accept Kennedy as nothing has changed since Lennon he is part of the problem and must be removed.
IF someone of the calibre of Le Favre is genuinely interested our Board should at least talk to him and see what can be done, as the longer this drags on the weaker our Board is looking.

Agree Tim its looking more and more like that scenario.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Apr 2021 14:37:05
Surely the board aren’t that silly just to let him leave them hanging with all the rumours of palace and or Newcastle . If they had reservations surely they would be looking to go into dialogue with other managers or even look into giving it to Kennedy . The new ceo surely won’t be keen to come into this without any direction that the board are leaning towards, in fact it’s already been mentioned he was involved in the original talks with Howe so he is obviously involved already. I’d presume they know pretty much what’s going to happen either way, it wasn’t so long ado we lost the centre back to Liverpool who had agreed everything but never signed the contract . You would think they learnt their lesson then .

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Apr 2021 16:59:08
Tim and Mally, praise the Lord! At least there's a few of us signing from the same hymn sheet as far as JK is concerned.

I also agree with your thought's Tim on what could transpire here as far as the Managers job goes.

If Favre is available they should be speaking with him either as a possible D. O. F. or Head Coach.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Apr 2021 17:55:30
i was of the opinion that JK should have walked as part of a very flawed and disjointed management team. However, I did accept that if the Board continued to be as impotent and culpable regarding the mess we are in and had not identified an immediate replacement, then it meant they had to appoint Kennedy as caretaker until such time? Initially, we were the same predictable and pedantic Celtic, although unbeaten, but in the last few games we have created nearly 100 chances and shots on goal, so our notorious Board may see this as another convenient and very cheap option? I only hope the new CEO starting in a weeks time can alleviate any such fears and anxiety?

Got a wee tip the ajax manager might be our guy and not howe or Keane. but as I say a wee tip.

the current ajax manager mally? i would be really surprised if he left them mate.

More chance if getting Howe.

Something I got sent today don't know how reliable it is, but he'd be some appointment if true.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 15:41:34
Magic apparently he's after a new challenge, don't know how accurate the "new challenge" story is just seen it the other day, would be fantastic but i think it's fantasy land, although when someone mentioned BR before he joined i didn't believe it or think he'd be interested. The right package and ambition shown by the board could persuade a top manager to join.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 17:04:29
Thats what I was told he wants a new challenge but ajax still involved in comps so we have to wait.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 17:07:11
The guy has some record, so I would imagine the challenge he wants might be on a grander scale? Would be an amazing appointment, if we are still looking?

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 17:42:06
That would be some challenge going from Ajax to us I would love it to be true but really can't see it.

Agree3 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 17:55:05
That's the thing mally, if who we are genuinely interested in, is still currently employed it will need to be kept hush hush until the end of the season or until atleast the club he is currently at can no longer win whichever competition they are competing for. It's a process that can't be rushed, i said on another thread this is something we can't even get slightly wrong, it needs to be bang on with the correct appointments in all areas of whichever structure we are going for to take us forward, that's a process I'm willing to wait for so that it's done correctly with the right appointments, i just hope that we don't wait all this time for the likes of a Lampard or someone just learning the ropes in management to come in.

No way this guy comes to Scotland from Ajax.

10 Apr 2021 19:46:48
Mally, there's nothing at all about it on the newswires. Now that doesn't necessarily mean anything of course but it would be interesting if there was some real truth in it.
I may be wrong but I have a feeling there is a lot of positive work going on at CP that we don't know anything about and it will come to light in good time. We'd all love to know tonight but it doesn't work like that in reality. HH.

Mallythetally67 has this tip got good source to back it up?

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 21:05:37
Mate I received a txt from a pal which stated this guy has a mole inside cp and says the hold up is because ajax are at a critical stage in the season, and the manager doesn't want to rock the boat, but he wants a new challenge, don't shoot the messenger as it might be mince.

Agree1 1Disagree

10 Apr 2021 22:02:10
Am a howe and heard he will be at Celtic park end of season.

Agree0 0Disagree

Anything's possible guys until we have a confirmation.
Keep smiling and, more importantly, stop believing everything the media tells you.
We have had a couple of different odds-on favourites and nothing is confirmed as yet. HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 22:33:10
As time goes by, im starting to get the feeling that it will either be someone who hasn't been mentioned ( like rodgers no1 heard his name mentioned b4 his appointment) or its john kennedy (regarding john i respect the rep he has within but up until this i couldn't see a manager in him but over the last few days im starting to think this could be our guy) however i've had a few beers hh.

Howe meant to be a done deal .

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 22:56:36
Cowabunga00 I was actually thinkin the same thing. Never wanted or want JK/ Lennedy as a manager but I’m warming to him. Was it today’s game? Was it speaking out against Sevco or just the beer I’ve drank?
2b honest he’s one of us, I’d give him my support 👍🏻.

10 Apr 2021 23:09:29
I heard Celtic tv were talking about Howe does anyone know what the fuss is about that some people thinking they must know something?

unless howe has signed and they are delaying the announcement for some reason, he is playing us. We are Celtic, we shouldn't be played by anyone. walk away from this! ralf rangnick. break the bank. please. lucien farvre is likeable because he is foreign and managed reasonable clubs. should have done better at dortmund but that's my personal opinion. we want someone to change the infrastructure that man is ralf. what I can see happening is maresca because we have identified harkin as the best candidate for dof. the way this is dragging out ain't gd. makes us look like we don't have a clue. the board have had since January to sort this and we are still in limbo. not good folks.

It’s not football manager, there is lots off things and complications from both sides, it all takes time and effort.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 13:25:41
It always takes time for us to do anything. My question is why? To me he isn't convinced of he would be here. He's working us to get a better offer from a real league. Go on prove me wrong Eddy.

If he hasn't proved me wrong by early next week it moves to, this is going to end up another humiliation given wall to wall by the Sevco press. Give him a deadline then move on. It's getting embarrassing.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 15:36:07
Magicpole who's to say we already haven't moved onto the next potential manager? If Howe has shown any sort of sign that he might not be 100% for the cause i can see the board and DD assuming he might go elsewhere therfore move onto the next target, also who's to say Eddie Howe is top target? Only the papers and online click bait sites have mentioned it, oh yeah an let's not forget the betting market who have no doubt made a pretty buck off the fans but saying he is now favourite etc lol i personally think movement will happen once the new CEO comes in as he will be the one working closely with the footballing side of things to ensure the right staff are hired for whatever structure there will be in place for next season after all he will be the one the rumoured DOF (if that's our way forward) will have to have a good relationship with to move the club forward and he will want to be a part of that process i can imagine. This is something that can't be rushed IMO, does any fan believe they can afford to get this wrong? I for one don't think we can afford to get this wrong, not with what's up for grabs for the league champions next season. Patience is key and good things will come to those who wait, we get this right we could blow the league out the water and dominate.

Seen Charlie Austin saying that he thinks Howe might have already signed but doesn’t want to come till the summer. Celtic don’t want to put the news out yet as Kennedy still has the cup to play for? I don’t know if that’s possible to even do? But a good theory if they are I suppose.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

I think Kennedy is intelligent enough to realise that he won't be getting the job full-time anyway.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Apr 2021 15:19:12
I’m sure if Celtic have already agreed a deal with anyone, Kennedy will have already been told.

come the summer we will need at least 2 new strikers. its been reported josh king will be on a free if its howe then a good chance he will go for him another striker i would suggest is assombalonga of Middlesbrough he will be on a free to big powerful and knows were the net is. this would be two great strikers for free. would free up cash to strengthen the defence a lot better.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

09 Apr 2021 08:56:06
I agree with you UI, sorting the defence is going to be a massive task in the summer and will take up most of our budget. Josh King is a funny one. He's only really had a couple of very good seasons in his whole career - scoring 16 and 12. That doesn't seem like a lot but for Bournemouth who aren't one of the big boys, don't get far in the cups or play in Europe, that's pretty impressive. He also has a strike rate of 1 in 3 for Norway which is very good. For me, it's a bit like Sinclair; he'd be teaming up with a manager who gets the best from him and it could potentially just click perfectly. The fact that Klimala and Ajeti don't look up to it also means I'd be inclined to keep Griff and a big unit like King could be the perfect partner for him.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 09:14:50
We layed out 5 mill on ajeti on the back of 1 good season 3 years ago. we need proven players at our price., easier said than done tho.

Agree2 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 11:01:51
Two right backs, a Left back, two CB'S, preferably not guys who can't defend woukd make a lovely change. Replacements for Christie and Eddy. Plus two more strikers. Bring back Shved or get another winger. A goalie wouldn't be the the daftest suggestion either. That's 11 players. With our usual speed when trying to get a player, I predict they are all here by next season. The above is why we need the manager in, or at least directing recruitment now. Waiting until June to start this will be another absolute shambles. Board, make a decision.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 13:22:44
Virtually need a new team and a Manager but the board apologists are telling everyone the club is run brilliant. Bank balance csc it's the new era.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 21:18:43
Great shout UI - that would be an exciting two upfront to get and would give us barring the big wages resources to attack this shaky defence. I would stick to the EFL to look for defenders as I believe there is a lot of talent down south that could do a better job than we have.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 22:10:13
I would have either to replace the back up strikers if they're moved on but would still expect someone better to replace Eddy.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Apr 2021 22:01:04
Reports are saying if Howe come he wants to get Josh king. Remember him being excellent under howe at Bournemouth. He seems to have fallen away abit the last year or so. He's a free transfer though so worth the gameble?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

09 Apr 2021 17:04:23
Cory67, as we mentioned on the podcast last night Josh King's salary is much higher than any of our top players. It appears that he is on something around £45k per week at Everton.
Even if he is available on a free transfer his salary expectations would most likely rule us out and it's more likely he could that kind of money in England. If he came in at that kind of money you can be sure a lot of our senior players would be asking for a significant pay rise to either match it or get close to it.
Here's a question though, do you think any fans would even be mentioning his name if Eddie Howe wasn't being touted for the managers job? HH.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 21:59:31
Besty, one way around the salary gap with a free transfer like Josh King could be an initial signing on fee with other built in incentives throughout the term of his contract.

I've personnally never heard of him and to be honest, I don't see Howe arriving at Celtic therefore, speculation over this player or others could be purely that 🤔.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Apr 2021 22:05:49
Pedro, at the minute EVERYTHING is speculation and that's why it isn't even worth talking about. HH.
