    Kennedy & Strachan Jr will always be part of the men who blew the 10, they should be part of no future Celtic dugout and the pair of them should * off

    I don't see how this guy could ever be anything more than another yes man/puppet for the Board, he'll just be so greatful for the opportunity, add to that JK and Strachan as his backroom team, * * ! :56:

    If he's allowed to bring in his own backroom staff and has control over the transfers i can get on board with it, but if Kennedy or Strachan end up being his number two then we know he's going to be just another yes man for them.

    Let’s hope that’s the case mate or else it’s going to be a disorganised mess up until our first game.

    I understand every manager is a risk and appreciate Howe spent more or less all his days at Bournemouth but Bournemouth being in the PL is a successful season it's Bournemouth not Man United and on top of that he had them playing some decent stuff yes he did spend big money on a few duds but he earned the club that money to spend. I am by no means saying Howe was the second coming of Stein I've stated on here for months I thought we were over rating him. Ange has essentially no European experience and has never been in a job where he is expected to win week in week out as I say I'm really choosing my words carefully as I don't want to * on the guy and I get that he has won things but winning the league in Japan then coming 9th doesn't fill me with confidence. I also take on board the Asia cup win but Australia are a big fish along with South Korea in a small pond look at the teams they bet on the way to winning it. For me and of course time will tell but this guy is a cheap yes man no matter how good a game he talks and how much he doesn't take * I dare say this will be his highest paid position he has held in football and the links to Lawwell through the City group absolutely stink for me. He is a massive victim of circumstance I appreciate that but he is a million miles off being the best available for the job

    The guy could be the best manager in world football for all we know. He also came 9th and then won the league in japan, not the other way around. I honestly think people are delusional about the types of managers we can attract because we got Rodgers that time. This guy ticks a * load of boxes for me and he comes across like a right character to boot.

    Look, I get why people are apprehensive. Me too. This could go * up big time. However, it's an infinitely more appealing prospect than anybody else in the top 30 in the betting to get the job who was realistic.

    Please * get this one over the line Celtic. Surely this isn't Howe part 2.

    If this is honestly the best we can come up with then we are in an even bigger mess than i thought.

    At 55 years of age we can safely assume he's not the best in the world. According to google he came 9th last season and won it the year before

    He'll be extremely grateful for the opportunity alright but by all accounts he's a "my way or the highway" type of guy.

    So he's being written off for his age and for his nationality.

    Why would Maresca have been exciting but not this guy?

    I repeated this multiple times earlier. Wasting your time mate. People are rightly * off and not willing to see any positives in this guy.

    Pretty much aye. :56:


    It just smacks of an appointment that lacks any ambition, desperate and without any logic, * knows what's happening with our Board but by the looks of things the cheese has slid aff the cracker.
