    I know this might seem nuts, but I had a crazy idea today that maybe the reason we're not getting in a Director of Football is because it's the clubs intention to put Ange into the position... Think about what the role involves, and how it would require an experienced individual who has an holistic view on the entire way of playing and club ethic and Ange would actually be a perfect fit for us. And what better way for him to take complete control of the structure than to build it up from ground level and then appoint a successor to walk into it...

    Complete hypothetical nonsense probably, and not sure I'd want to see him leave if this is just step 1 of the development, but what a concept it could be to see this kind of development of it continued over say 10-12 years in the club... :35:

    This is what Celtic is all about TBF. Win, lose or draw we should be trying to murder whoever we're up against.

    I was forever saying about getting back to a high press. Domestically, diddy defences can't handle it and will always lead to goals..

    There was zero press as a team. You'd get the odd single press and we'd be sliced open..

    Now look at us. Thank *..

    Plus it's exciting and gets the crowd involved when we see our number 9 and wingers pressing relentlessly from the front..

    Loving it. As Ange said though, it's only early day's and 3 week's ago he was being questioned on his style of play..

    Frightening prospect that we've still got many more gears to go up..

    Ange has been so statesman-like from the beginning. Cool as a cucumber, yet you can tell he's got a huge appetite for success. I want to see this man lifting trophies here. Bet he's turns into a party animal once the job is done

    The transformation has been so complete and so quick , and yet still obviously incomplete , that even two bad results next week wouldn't ruin my confidence in Ange and what he's doing. Haven't enjoyed watching Celtic so much since early Rodgers and peak Burns . The movement, pace, pressing and positivity is so different from last season ( and whole chunks of at least a season before that ) that it's embarrassing .

    Of course Lennon is on record today saying that the change is just down to fans returning, which is so ludicrous I almost feel sorry for him. Stop talking about Celtic, you had your go ,you did some good things and then that should have been your lot.

    As soon as he was done with the post match team talk he was out doing a coaching session and mini game with the players who weren’t involved.

    I couldn’t agree more about the next two games.

    I’m supremely confident but it won’t diminish my confidence in the man whatever way the next two go.

    That being said we’re going to the EL and we are going to run over the top of the huns.

    How many times have we played bottom half teams and they frustrate us, get people behind the ball and just play to keep us out? Sometimes worse with 10 men as they have no incentive then to open up. We play slow build up side to side and allow them to regroup.

    Teams don’t even know where our players are half the time such is the movement off the ball. It’s actually frightening how dynamic and expansive we are. It’s like defence doesn’t even matter cause our front 3 are our defenders as well, domestically anyway. The pressing has a pattern and a purpose and * works! I’m mesmerised.

    At one point I'm sure Welsh got the ball about their 15/20 yards from their goal and he was our last man, other than Hart.

    Never seen a team press so high for so long with such possession.

    I am not sure about your theory and think it’s probably down to board incompetence but your intuition is correct I think.

    In his book he often has a bigger vision/plan for the clubs he looks at rather than just the coaching and picking the squad. He also does his own scouting too and will go the board with suggestions for players.

    I like the idea of Ange implementing his playing philosophy from the youngest youth teams and up. Streamline the process of moving the youngsters up and playing for the first team.

    I've noticed that after each goal we score, Ange and the rest of the coaching staff have a hug. All good and well now, but could start to get a bit awkward after our 250th goal this season :56:
