I have to laugh when people say we can't spend £5 million on a striker and that the club is being ran in a prudent manner balancing the books etc . We pay TOP dollar for match tickets, merchandising etc and our "prudent" club have wasted way more than £5 million on dross trying to find a no 7 . Miku, Lassad .Brozek, Bangura, Rasmussen etc, at the same time we are asking for and getting top money in for Ki, Vic and Hooper . The club are now changing all the strips on a yearly basis at £55 a go! Time for cheque book to come out and buy players to build a team capable of holding its on on Europe rather than being content with participating, I have been all over Europe supporting Celtic and very few clubs are bigger now is time to spend some cash as penny pinching will cost us long term there is no point in having money in the bank and watching the Champions League on tv


1.) So you would rather gamble 5mill and 3 mill (wages) on one player
who could turn out as dross as the ones you quoted? remember a 5 mill player will demand wages that are approprate for that level of transfer and therefore blow the wage structure. Unfortunately the best we will get is a 2-3mill player in my opinion.

2.) I can see your points mate but you are a bit jumbled up in them. We have had £100 off our season books this season, you must agree in these times that's not too bad.

On the wasted money for players, I will discount the loan players which I have always been against, you negate your point a bit. Banguarra and Rasmusson both came with a decent pedigree.Who's to say a £5m signing would be different? that's the gamble, we don't know.What we do know is it takes a helluva lot of money to run an operation like Celtic in a cash poor league.

Holding it's own in Europe? Sadly that's all we could hope for in the CL.If I am honest I think a third place and entry into the Europa would benefit the team as we could get a run in that.If we are honest with ourselves did anyone think rangers would die? This was a warning call to overspending clubs.

We are also, in my opinion, a work in progress.My thinking in this was the display of some of our youngsters in Dublin. We need to start using our young players more, especially domestically, this is the only way they will gain experience. If Lenny feels we have cover we should not be buying for the sake of buying. green jhedi

3.) You put a near SPEC of dust in finance to the club.
The real money men at celtic no what's good for us not you and throwing your spends back in cl.
I as a shareholder go to every agm and am more than happy.
Same as lennon said let's get into Europe for 4 years then let's see where we are.
We have a working cap of 50 million.
Most champions league clubs between £80 to £250 million overdrafts.
If either owner or bank called time would fold up faster than sevco.
Celtic is not a year on year thing its a endless project I would far rather future of club in good shape players after.
If the current club can't beat karagandy then the signing of 1 striker is pointless.
Come back in 4 weeks time and see if your been made to laff.

4.) I think we all agree that the continued safe unrisked long term future of the football club is the first priority. The same celtic for grandchildren, great grandchildren and generations to come. Holding cash reserves critically underpins that. Nowadays if you fail to pay a bill a minor creditor can put you into admin. Every time the team runs out in the hoops there's eleven star players right there.

5.) Hear hear totally agree, we as fans don't ask for much but with the champions league at our mercy each year we need to speculate to accumulate

Ed, do you have any idea what the script is with Odemwingie? He seems desperate to leave and WBA seem desperate to get shot of him, I'm assuming he's a total problem child though he's always seemed decent player, but is now becoming a transfer window feature and is linked to more clubs than Ally's had hot bridies {Ed007's Note - He's not a player I know that much about apart from sitting outside Loftus Road all day! He has been linked with a raft of clubs in England and abroad but he has said he wants to stay in England.}

Agreed 100% about big Biton and Gamboa, every time Boyata gets the ball Biton is getting close and giving him easy options, great all round today and nice to make history with a resounding victory especially against that mob

Stones and Luiz are 2 who combined cost £100 million only problem in neither can defend at top level, unfortunately money talks and small clubs become a rich owners plaything, our league gets discredited despite plenty ex SPL plying their trade down south . Hopefully we keep investing to make Euro progress and build a young squad then get the "not for sale " signs up

Think Boyata defensively looks fine , always attacks the ball, his distribution was poor yesterday but who's wasn't? He missed Bitton coming short to take ball off him so time will tell though Big Bobo wasn't exactly silky on the ball

Free wifi up until kick off then turn it off, totally understand why Manchester United have banned iPads, tablets etc, folk moan about crowds & atmosphere at CP, it's fans who generate atmosphere and in continued absence of GB whole stadium has got to play it's part and get involved rather than texting, twitter or FB, need to be 12th man tonight, if worse case scenario happens it's going to be a long season!
