    Warning signs on the bottles if exposed to eyes please rinse, or was that the press release from signing Bolingoli? :fear:

    It is very disappointing that we spend 10 million on 2 defenders that the manager uses so sparingly.
    Who sanctioned signing this 2 players and why are we not bringing in the quality players we need to ensure 9 IAR happens?

    Head of recruitment sounds like a massive doss. We have an entire section full of players that we feel can improve us on this forum. I'm not saying that one of us should be doing the job, although I feel that some on here would give it a better crack than others that have actually landed the job the last few years.

    * it. We need a Celtic man. A fan of the club that actually wants us to improve. Give it to a talk celtic man or a collection of us.

    So why is it a temporary assignment if he’s the man to sort it all out?

    They need some short term investment on top of long term.
    Reality is they should never have let Congerton join us in the 1st place. A good system was in place.

    Wouldn't it be easier to contact Mr park at Falkirk and say name your price to come back and sort this mess out .

    Couldn't we have just put the * on gardening leave and got our own affairs in order though? What's the point keeping congerton in the role when we know he's off and his targets were pish anyway.

    In time people always forget the bad things. Park had some shockers & rumour has it he is out dated. We need to looking for a forward thing scouting system.

    Abso-*-lutely, mate. In fact, never mind February, we should have done exactly that last summer (the moment we knew Rodgers wanted off).

    Annoying thing about that is he could have still paid congerton his salary got someone else in to do the job meaning no two months lost targets identified in early and boom Cl football and a 40 million carrot but he looks after the penny's too much... Some times gotta spend a few pennies to get a few pounds

    Agree think at the time they were trying to please br and fan his massive ego too bad it has done more damage than good not everything or anyone from a epl club is world class for starters I'd imagine any scout or head of recruitment doesn't have to take their job too seriously down their looking the breadth width of the world for gems as they have plenty of money to * on any top player so theirs no pressure to identify anyone that no one has heard of

    The entire point in appointing Lennon with such haste was to stop the feet dragging and killing time that would be required to revamp all departments.

    Can’t help but feel like there’s a general malaise happening behind the scenes not work taking place. Rodgers left months ago and Congerton should have been holding hands with him out the door.

    You’ll never get anyone who provides perfection, particularly in the markets we shop in, but our transfer record with Park here was fantastic.
