    Yeah I fear we won't be seeing a sturdier defence if his most recent numbers are anything to go by. Just checking there, his first season he had the 2nd worst defensive record In the league and the season they actually won it his was the worst defence in the top 6.

    He obviously gives up a lot at the back in pursuit of goals. Fingers crossed he's learned some lessons and can set a defence up now or it could be like you say.

    Let's hope we actually decide to buy a right back to even give him half a chance.

    A goalkeeper and left back would also help. Then maybe a striker who actually wants to be here and isn't the same level at Ajeti. Not to mention the 3 or 4 on top that to provide competition.

    This. By the end if this month we will know exactly how the season will go. We could be 6/9 behind or evens or 3 up. Europe or no europe. Transfer window shut. This is arguably the biggest month going. We better strap in.

    I think, well hope, he reigns in it a bit, for now anyway. If he goes up against the Huns in a few weeks with Ralson and Taylor playing in CM, we'll get destroyed out wide.
    There's no point in being gung-ho if you're conceding 3 goals a game.

    The same board who don't give a * about our decline will toss away Ange when the results end up too much to tolerate. He will not be given a full year. Any failing manager (Strachan, Mowbray, Deila, Lennon) was discarded like a spent condom, but the board suffered no consequences.

    Looks like we were right to be concerned about them punishing us at free kicks and crosses m8. It's been our Achilles heels since last season

    I'm happy to give Ange time to implement his style here. It was always going to be a big ask and there's been positive signs already.

    The person who I'm most disappointed in just now is Dom McKay. He's come in spouting all this guff about backing Ange and modernising the club and he's done the square root of * all for either of those.

    Agreed on McKay. A puppet ruled out because the shadowy ruler is getting old.

    Why should he adapt? Before signing for Celtic, Ange would've been extremely clear with the football he plays and the support he needs to achieve it, and he would've asked for guarantees that he would get the support he needs.

    You all have had an insight about Ange by now, can can you imagine him not being extremely clear in his philosophy to the board and that he needs specific players to achieve it? Of course he was clear, he does it in every job he gets.

    Dom's end of the bargain with Ange hasn't been met, so why should Ange change when he would've been clear from the beginning on who he is and what he needs, and was let down by the board.

    Because he hasn’t won in 3 games, you need to be winning to get the time for the team to adapt to you. It won’t happen in 3 games, so you do it gradually and do stuff like play * Bitton infront of Welsh just because he’s a better passer and literally not better at anything else.

    Three games, zero wins. There is sometimes a need to adapt. If we don’t have the personnel to play his style, then change it.

    Also barring a spell at home to Midtjyland has there been any signs of his style of play at all granted the board has let him down but it's not like we've been peppering the goals in the 3 games he's played

    Why should he adapt ? We've shipped 11 goals in 4 games, maybe he should start there.

    * this ! Forcing Taylor and Ralston to play CM is bad management.

    The guy who hadn't heard of Ange until a few weeks ago is telling people who have watched Ange for over 20 years that they "over egged" his philosophy.

    This forum :giggle1::giggle1::giggle1:

    He and supporters should start by making the board accountable to what they would have promised when they made an agreement with Ange.

    Only played 3 so not sure how? Surely you’re not counting one of the friendlies to help make your argument?
