    I'm not sure he can be anything other than a yes man, comes here with no backroom staff, essentially he is isolated, knows he wasn't first choice for the job,little or no managerial experience in European fitbaw, it had disaster written all over it.

    He would need to.

    I like the guy and he’s definitely had no luck at all since taking over. But if we fail to win both of the next two league games he could have no complaints.

    Said he would assess the coaching staff
    Gave Griffiths a new deal despite saying he needed to prove his self in training and they'd never met
    Covered for the board after stepping out of line once in the summer window

    Basically he talks *..

    Frustrating game today. Like playing without a CF. Without McGregor and Kyogo we are a shadow of the team in the earlier games. At HT in that cup game v Hearts I honestly thought we were onto something, it was so exciting!

    It’s make or break from now on, we simply have to go on a run and hope that mob drop points. Should not be be relying on teams taking points of them this early on but what I would do for Hibs to get something from them next week and us to beat Aberdeen. That would surely give us the kick we so badly need and the break would give us time to get players back.

    If they sack him after he loses the season, that's on him. If they sack him two months in, that's on them. It looks like they didn't do due diligence and don't back their own decisions.

    Time to bin this experiment , yes he's been plagued with injuries and having to rely on players that really shouldn't be in a Celtic first team. * mediocre managers have his fancy system rumbled , we are an embarrassment to ourselves .

    After allowing Lennon to limp on for months, do people really think Postecoglou will be sacked?

    Even if he did go, I doubt any manager is fixing this. There’s not a single player on the bench capable of changing a game.

    Don't really know what's happened to the style we had in August. We look as bad as we did last season again.

    The squad is thin and the injuries have had a catastrophic effect. Loads of injuries that may not be unrelated to the managers playing style and clear lack of conditioning though. Bottom line is that 3 wins out of 7 is totally unacceptable for our club and we not find ourselves 6 points behind that shower of scum and it isn't even October yet. Still no Director of Football, an acting CEO who is a boards yes man, a board who think they are doing a fine job; a manager slowly coming under pressure. Things are in a very bad state here and it needs sorted pronto.

    Aberdeen away, Motherwell away, St Johnstone home, Hibs away

    Those are the next four league fixtures, current form can't see us winning any of them and if that happens, he'll be gone before Halloween

    The issue now is lack of pressure on them, just as there was last season.

    We’ve managed to bring it all back on ourselves and are now in a ‘must win’ situation every week.

    When people start saying "but who else could we get" that's when you know your days are numbered if the best defence of you isn't even a defence of you

    He needed backed with a proper modern football infrastructure.
    We've been banging in for months about this.
    He's completely hampered with next to zero support.

    If the club isn't prepared to back the guy, then sack him.
    Because the guts * struggling and the club isn't remotely setup to operate at the standard he wants.

    Not saying he is better than Celtic, but the operation of the club is about 25 years behind where it should be.


    After a month of chassing Howe, there was a story about him doing due diligence on Celtic.
    Doesn't take a * rocket scientist to realise He did that then ran a mile.
    Rumours are the Howe deal was dead long before we announced it. Long before the club put out the renewals.
    They knew they had one last chance to con the fans for season ticket, and the large bull obliged as per.

    Ange is a yes man. No doubt about it. He's taken this job knowing exactly what it involved, rather what if didn't involve.

    I like his style when it works, I like the way he talks and seems an honest lad.
    But he's very limited, in that he has no plan b, that without a decent setup, he has no help in getting the best out of this squad.

    Either he demands more from this board, or he should walk.
    Same as the board need to support him, or get shot.
