    In light of our little trip to sunnier climates this week, thought i would see what the general feeling is toward Lawell. Personally i think he does a right good job. For me one of the usual criticisms of him is his unwillingness to spend, which i dont get. For me he has backed most of his managers tho rest of January might tell us if he really backs Ronny long term. Just need to look at what we have wasted in recent seasons with the likes Bangura,Pukki,Balde,Boerrigter and Juarez. Lawell has given his managers money and thats fact. Lennon and the likes of John Park can be credited with the Ki's Wanyamas and Hoopers and thats fine but when we sign keech they have to share in those as well. So we went to Spain to earn a few bob. Big deal. Thats what i would expect the guy running our club to do. Make money. Like i say tho. January(whats left of it) will be interesting. Needs to back the current manager

    The loan signing of Guidetti probably saved his job.

    Can't stand him. He's gave Ronny a near impossible job. All this absolute * he comes out with about spending what we bring in hasn't been true for years.

    Know what we do spend plenty on ? His wages and bonus.

    Snake. I wouldn't believe a word that comes out his mouth. Good talker though, manages to wrap fans round his finger. Could have been a politician.

    Does the job that Desmond tells him to do and obviously very well while earning himself £1M per year. Unfortunately we do not have any financial except from selling players and possible champions league money unless Desmond fancies sticking his hand is his pocket, which he wont anymore.

    This.

    His Pravda like interview on Celtic TV was disgraceful and completely shifted the focus of a disastrous close season away from him.

    Needs to back the manager in this window but I wont hold my breath.

    He's frustrating, but I'd rather have a tightwad than go down the Rangers route. Sometimes it can be healthy to have a 'no' man in that role.

    It doesn't have to be one extreme or the other, though.

    Nobody wants to go down the rangers route but just sometimes you have to take a risk. If it pays off you're a genius, if not, well, a little debt never harmed any club and you make it up in other ways.

    He is at a real crossroads just now. He wants the money to be in before he spends it but if we keep going the way we are going, attendances will continue to fall, revenue will be down and this vicious circle will continue, in fact it will get worse.

    He needs to do something to excite the support, get people back through the gate.

    This is the time you need your CE to be brave and creative. Will he? Doubt it.
