    People are speaking about January as if it's next week it's 3 months away and that's assuming we do our business early which we almost certainly wont

    The lack of attacking options in the squad at the minute is laughable. Since the game at Ibrox, the only striker we have had on the bench in any game is Giakoumakis against Raith, and he wasn’t even fit enough to get a run out. That’s a disgrace for a club our size.

    3 weeks after an alleged rebuild in the transfer window.

    Was hearing arseholes today on podcasts saying he should have took Ajeti off and went 3-5-2 so who's the two playing up front two * wingers I take it as we have * all attacking options on the bench .

    If you looked at our bench since the transfer window closed, you would think it was pre-season friendlies we were playing.

    Not expecting to much activity in January myself,when all our injured players return we will have a fairly healthy squad good enough to win the league and im guessing our board will think the same.

    I guess we don't have enough midfielders, only Rogic, Turnbull, Soro, McCarthy, Bitton, Shaw, Henderson and Lawal to choose from right now, Moffat can't get a sniff yet looked like he had potential in pre-season, no idea what's going on with Giakoumakis, apparently he's now available for Leverkusen.

    I appreciate your considered reply (amongst some of the tripe that appears here); I enjoy a good discussion. I'd respond but flat out with work.

    Livingston were bottom of the league and beat us so I don't have great expectations of going there and winning.

    We're a shambles defensively. Glass will be rubbing his hands together after analysing our game just gone.

    Just reading back some of this thread 3 months ago people were claiming we could make the latter stages of the champions league fast forward to now and we're fighting for top 6. Probably the most Celtic thing ever :giggle1:

    I wish we could fast forward 3 months to this magical Jan window that's going to rescue our season :62:

    Then it's just as well your not a manager either.

    A good manager doesn't necessarily need to make personnel changes to alter things on the pitch.

    Its all in the training of basics and in the attitude. Celtic under Stein, both domestically and abroad, were a powerhouse of a team and became a household name the world over. The players wore the shirt with pride, played for each other and did not shirk on the field. They got the job done and entertained as well with beautiful football. They also were not on comfortable money players are on now. It was all about the football.

    Players need to stay hungry to play well. I mean that in terms of attitude. Getting paid well is what everyone wants. Players need to give value for money as well, otherwise they become duds. They start getting too comfortable, start believing all the media hype and become deluded, get distracted by the flash cars, the lifestyle, houses and attention and football performance starts to fall away. I stated it before, Dundee Utd played very well against us with good fluid football and their lads looked better than our team, given the money they get compared to ours. Its all about the attitude. Its all about the football.

    Celtic did it in the past. With the right attitude they can do it these days also.

    The Board needs to step up and be worthy of its position. Help this team and club progress.

    100%...in recent games he's gone to 2 at the back, always width getting changed, positioning too. Subs just give you fitness.
    Our problem is missing several of our BEST players. Take away ANY other teams best 5 or 6 players, they going to struggle. We are no different.
    At close of window MOST were content, we were moving forward fast. Sadly injuries are to blame right now. And this is a TOTAL squad re-build. Good teams need a strong 17, and 8 or so Soro types as 100% last option. This might take a year, 18 months to click. But will he get the time?

    I think Rodgers would’ve struggled with that team against Dundee…kidding yourself if you think otherwise. A half decent striker and would’ve won

    Despite the injuries what we have left is still, by and large, better than what Livingstone and Dundee utd have. Dundee utd were actually missing a couple of their better players too.

    He hasn't gone to 2 at the back at all. All he has done is carry on this nonsense of moving fullbacks infield. The wingers did appear to switch in the 1st half on sunday, for about 2 minutes. Wether this was tactical or just down to how the game flowed at that point we don't know, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. The only other time he has made any sort of positional changes during a game was raith rovers and those were only to give minutes to certain players at 3-0 up.

    Even if those injured players were available the only guaranteed starters are mcgregor and furuhashi. Also, even with a stronger bench I'm not so sure we wouldn't just carry on seeing the same like for like style substitutions from him.
