I was having a wee gander thru some comments on a fan forum on facebook and they were having a conversation on the current state behind the scenes and they were claiming that there's been a big bust up between the Lawwells and Desmond regarding the wasting of funds on pish from the summer window and that desmond has taken recruitment away from the son.

Hence why nothing spent in January. In turn Daddy lawwell backing the son and unhappy with desmond. Desmond reportedly said no funds available in january until players moved on and funds got back that was wasted.

That was the run down between 2 or 3 fans and the admin on the forum. Not sure where they're getting it from but it doesn't seem that far fetched and id say there is at very least some part of this will be true.

So the attitude is because you mucked things up (Lawells) we going to muck the season up just to spite you. Seriously!


2.) 06 Feb 2024 23:20:08
Celtic have still made a net profit on transfers this season, as usual.


3.) 07 Feb 2024 00:15:22
Totally understand that buzz but what i think they were getting at was the summer window was that bad desmond wasnt going to trust young lawwell with recruitment again. Another bad window and there might not be a net profit.
Like i mentioned chasa i doubt all that was mentioned is true but i think there is a good chance of a bust up behind the scenes of some sort, whether that be over recruitment/ funds etc, that would be anyones guess. But i do think recruitment is a very realistic one. Plus if desmond doesn't trust the current recruitment then its unlikely he will give them more money to plunder. One way or another its obvious something is up and we will find out about it sooner or later if people start getting sacked or walk.


4.) 07 Feb 2024 00:35:32
DerryTim,
It been woeful for everyone and I would be more concerned, if there wasn’t any disagreements and fallouts on the back of this season so far.


5.) 07 Feb 2024 02:10:53
100% agreed buzz. For the sake of how bad things are let's hope there's in fighting because as you said we are in even more serious trouble if they're not.


6.) 07 Feb 2024 08:52:23
Think if DD was unhappy with current recruitment team in such terms they would be gone. Doubt he became a billionaire by having hissy fits then taking a huff. As mentioned somewhere else, he wouldn’t accept this in any of his other businesses, he would be ruthless. Can only hope that above the manager there is plenty of infighting, leading to a slaughter!


7.) 07 Feb 2024 09:18:48
And yet he was happy to sell jota and starfelt oor dermot under lawells stewardship. cannot have it both ways.


8.) 07 Feb 2024 10:53:31
DD decisions would be more of a policy thing rather than individual players I would think. And didn’t Starfelt want to leave, also, couldn’t really refuse Jota money ( his eyes were seeing $) . The pisser there is that we never spent adequately to replace them.
Only hope is that DD flecks off to sort his golf handicap out and leaves junior to progress the club, hopefully before the Lawell cult brainwash him.


9.) 07 Feb 2024 13:14:03
You nailed it buzz: sell more than you buy. That’s all. The rest is static. Our fan-atical support reduced to brand loyalty at best. It’s $hite.


10.) 07 Feb 2024 18:20:27
I think if DD was unhappy at recruitment he’d have made a decision and communicated that before the January window.


11.) 09 Feb 2024 07:53:38
I can see any of that being true. Lawell can’t make the decision if DD says no. Just guys making rubbish up about stuff they would never know, even if it was true.

Well done to joe hart on calling it a day at the end of the season. A great professional and role model and im sure will be fondly remembered by most fans.
Im sure he could have done what most would do and run to saudi for a final payoff but isnt
The fact he looks like a possibility for our player of the season at this stage sums up how bad things have been.

DerryTim

1.) 22 Feb 2024 22:32:28
Glasgow world has a 13 goalkeeper list for who could replace Hart. its a good wee read.

If and when Rodgers gets shown the door id like to see us approach kieran mckenna of ipswich town. He is close to back to back promotions with them in the 2 years he's been there and they're very close to automatic promotion to the PL. he's previously been youth coach at spurs and man utd. Only 38.

DerryTim

1.) 21 Feb 2024 22:17:45
He’s the 1 a wanted definitely 1 for the future.


2.) 21 Feb 2024 23:31:17
There is no chance of getting Kieran McKenna, from my home town, unless he f. cks it up big time with Ipswich Town.


3.) 22 Feb 2024 09:12:42
If he gets promoted fair enough but if not I think most championship managers would come to celtic.


4.) 22 Feb 2024 10:43:35
Mallythetally, Kieran is very ambitious and if he misses out on promotion this year with Ipswich he will not be one of the many Championship Managers who will come to Celtic . Growing up in Enniskillen he is probably aware of the special circumstances that are allowed to exist In Scottish Football and wouldn’t want the extra pressure in taking on Celtic job.

We need to stick with rodgers for the rest of the season. If he was to get sacked what half decent manager would join this mess at this stage of the season. We would be left with kennedy as interim and that would be a disaster in itself.
Win or lose the league i think rodgers needs to go at the end of the season and after today that's the 1st time i can't stand by brendan.
With everythng with the board and signings, 1st team regulars form like AJ taylor mcgregor kyogo etc falls on him and his painful to watch style i've seen enough.
Ive stood by rodgers until now but a theory i have certain managers are unable to adjust to tactics formations etc as times change and i think rodgers is one of them. Great manager when his style worked but is unable to adjust. MON mourinho are examples of this, Great managers that had the same formations/ tactics/ styles their whole careers and the latter part of their careers were poor due to inability to change. Rodgers is looking like the same.
The thing im struggling to come to terms with most is that the club is in that much of a mess from top to bottom there is no easy fix and could take years to sort out. And that's only if desmond and the lawwels feck off and take rodgers the coaches and 99% of the players down the road with them.
A DOF is essential for any forward thinking club but the dinosaurs at the top won't have one because their egos won't allow it.

DerryTim

With Celtic buying poor quality players this season, if Rodgers does leave, Celtic would probably go for Scott Brown as the next manager, Scott Brown a great player for Celtic, but a inexperienced manager, and it wouldn't cost Celtic to much, because Celtic have £72 million pounds in the bank, and they don't want to spend it, didn't want to spend around 5 or 6 million pounds on better players that could have helped Celtic win the league title this season and get £50, million pounds in Champions league money, Well Celtic Board of Directors you have given Sevco all the help they needed, when Celtic had the chance to stay well ahead of them, you have fecked up big time, the Celtic board of directors are a disgrace and you are not fit to represent all Celtic supporters, hang your heads in shame.


2.) 18 Feb 2024 09:08:40
This situation is only going to get worse. As I predicted many of our fans are at tipping point or beyond, which was evident yesterday.

The longer this goes on and the more points we drop, the angrier the fans will get and the more pressure will mount on the board, the manager and the players.

If the board had done as I suggested and apologised to the fans and promised to fix it in the summer, the mood yesterday would have been far more optimistic. However, they done their usual and barrackaded themselves in their ivory tower.

A few we opinions of mine

I truely admire ralstons die hard attitude. Fantastic. Has the mentality to be a future captain but im not so sure he will ever be good enough to be a regular. Great squad player though.

Theres definitely a player in stephen welsh, i think his progression has been severely hampered by injuries. If he can stay fit he could be great.

I think with palmas lack of pace i think he may be suited in a central role as an AM or just behind the striker.

Its best for everyone if abada never plays for the club again. Auction him off in the summer to the highest bidder. I don't blame him for his feelings as he's every right to being israeli but at the end of the day he's still being paid to do a job for us. If he doesn't want to play again tell him to go home without pay until sold in the summer.

DerryTim

{Ed007's Note - ?????


1.) 12 Feb 2024 22:02:29
Great Post DT. Palma could plY role similar to Rogic who didn't have any pace either. Is Abada being influenced by his partner? For me whatever is behind it his race is run.


2.) 12 Feb 2024 22:46:34
If I was 14 I'd have Ralston on the back of my shirt. Future captain for me





F.


3.) 13 Feb 2024 10:20:10
In terms of his attitude and application, he's definitely captain material. I don't think he's likely to ever be our first choice RB though.


4.) 13 Feb 2024 09:02:43
Very good points DT and I agree what Ralston lacks in some areas, he more than makes up for in heart, determination and graft. IMO AJ has struggled to reach the level of last season and the jersey is up for grabs. I also think although Bernabei can be dodgy defensively, in the last two games he has offered a lot going forward in support of his winger and helped create several chances. However, left back is probably one of the key areas we will look at in the summer.
I was also happy to hear a bullish, defiant BR after the game and it filters through to the players, as there is a double to retain.


5.) 13 Feb 2024 21:21:58
It looks very much as if Celtic are going to be the biggest losers with Abada. If he continues to believe or is brainwashed into thinking he is at worse in danger or at best unwanted, he won’t play well and will be sold at a knockdown price.

Fair play to big idah for having the bawz to step up twice and score. Ill be in a minority but i actually like what he brings and as i follow irish football and have been aware of idah since he was i teen i think he will do better than most people think he will. Ill even go as far as saying he might be the difference in us winning the league or not. He scored bags of goals at youth level but has undoubtedly struggled to take that into senior level. But remember he is still only 22, every player peaks at different stages of their career.
On the other hand, im not convinced by kuhn, has bags of pace but don't think he is a long term solution.
Our inability to score from corners and freekicks have been a problem going back to rodgers last spell here and same with ange. For all lennons flaws he could set up a team to defend and attack set pieces. I look to the likes of kennedy for this problem. What on earth does he train them to do in these situations?
As things stand id take it everyday of the week if we win the league playing how bad we have been for the remainder of the season. Ill happily see the end of this season to see what the summer brings.

DerryTim

1.) 08 Feb 2024 08:35:35
I doubted his worth but I've been presently surprised and he definitely brings something to the party not least the ability to take a pen.


2.) 08 Feb 2024 09:47:59
Much the same for me on the 'mehness, ' at his arrival but if he can take his game up two levels playing for his heroes it's all Roy of the rovers for me, does Ralston support Celtic?


3.) 09 Feb 2024 20:48:33
Kennedy is not coach for set pieces, Are we going back to the failed ten in a row year when Kennedy was blamedwrongly by many Celtic supporters . John Kennedy is the assistant manager and he takes the overall coaching that B Rodgers programmes . For some reason John, whose career was ended abruptly injury at 20/ 21 yrs has been frequently blamed for anything going wrong with Celtic . BR and Ange have frequently praised him as they appreciate him more than Celtic fans.

id prefer shankland but would be happy enough with miovski, id expect him to do a job in scotland but don't think he will keep kyogo out of the team. Good backup and should be able to bag 15 a season as a backup to kyogo.

Well said mate, I wasn't a fan of Rodgers coming back but I'm all for giving hom a chance. he's only in the door, he's been sh*t on by the board in transfers and key players have been dung. Can'ly blame Rodgers for these. His formation etc undoubtedly needs to improve but give him time. We have no right to win every game and every trophy all the time otherwise we would all lose interest.

If it was a lesser known manager on a smaller payout i think he'd be gone or at least very close to it.

Idah with kyogo just behind him will cause teams problems. Idah might not score heaps but he's the type of player others enjoy playing with. If idah works on his finishing he could go to the top.

Never rated him, was a passenger in most matches and never turned up when needed. Never celtic quality. Good business for the club with contract running down as you mentioned. although will probably end up in desmonds pocket. Good luck to him though.
