    He has until the end of the window to at least ensure we remain the strongest in Scotland.

    Aye you can blame Lennon it's easy to do that but this exact problem has recurred under multiple managers it doesnt matter who's in the dugout if his hands are tied in terms of recruitment lawell and Desmond need to step up and start investing the money it's a different story when the season tickets are 500 odd quid and a strip is 60 70 quid no cuts there they are first rate prices for second rate return its abysmal

    Am.i right in saying off the top.of my head since Ronnie's first summer transfer window when he was appointed we have made 85-90 million until now with the outlay of players in the 20 million mark?? And we are supposed to believe that is good enough this isn't including any prize money or European money btw

    Ronny was the least financially-backed manager of the last quarter century. Rodgers brought in far more than he was allowed to spend. Spent £12mil, brought in £25mil so far this season.

    Nah I mean we have made 85 million since he was here and spent 25 million in the same time not including any European or prize money or season ticket money or new strips launch or Celtic events etc etc we also got a fair whack for the stadium being rented out

    I think 2017/2018 we spent more than we brought in but qualified for the Champions league. Last year we spend £13 million and got in about £26 million or so. This year spent £12 million and got in £25 million. But every penny is reinvested. In * disco lights.

    Aye they should have openly said/admitted - While we did try and get X, Y & Z but as they turned us down, for whatever reason, we have had little choice but to give it to Lenny Erm sorry what we mean is we gave it to Lenny because he was the best candidate. Is it something like that you expected them to do and then admit aye ..




    As we know Occam ultimately proves little/nothing. So, instead I'll apply common sense (or take a heuristic approach to it if you prefer) , plus what I heard, safe in the knowledge that those approached understand how the game is played when it comes to looking/employing a manager/coach for a football Club - it's not dissimilar to being head hunted by a recruitment agency when, no matter how many had/have been approached/spoken with (and potentially offered the job), whoever gets/takes the job was always the one they wanted in the first place anyway ... honest..

    Rotating screens, hotels, training complex, disco lights..

    Vs.

    Sound recruitment of non playing staff, appropriate investment in the playing staff, rebuilding the scouting department and scouting network after congerton departure, CL qualification.

    We have missed out on millions as a result to his carelessness and poor business decisions and our star players leave. His decisions are setting us back years.

    GET THE * BASICS RIGHT AND THE REST WILL FOLLOW

    Complete misdirection of the truth.

    Firstly, celtic will artificially manipulate their numbers to suit their purpose - thus will probably include every single staff member on the books, so is not necessarily indicative.
    Secondly, the very fact it's the Romanian league will dictate the low costs, like comparing all the SPL teams against Barcelona wages. Messi alone probably earns more than our first team.

    The result itself is bad enough, without dictating new ways to pile * on it, which mean absolutely * all. The blame for this mess lies with the board NOT SPENDING, not the fact that they're overspending.

    Absolute truth. Our lack of ambition is startling but many fans have accepted it and lapped it up because of 10IAR and getting one over them. It’s pathetic. We need a clear out from top to bottom

    So just openly lie to the supporters is what you're saying their decision was, and it's one you agree with and support?

    Isn't even doing that right- it would require investment into youth coaching so we can produce central defenders and destroyer MF-s, not just forward players.

    Even reading this makes me cringe, not saying I disagree with you but look how far we have fallen. It’s honestly unforgivable. We are a laughing stock in Europe
