    Thats disgusting, I can think of several players who should be banged up ( for fraud ) but Laxalt isnt one of them.
    An absolute * star compared to some of our resident twats.

    At the risk of sounding like a da, they should spend their January break working in food banks in Springburn and Tollcross. Or helping out at the community center in Easterhouse.

    The players get plenty of superstar treatment, and that's part of the problem. Maybe if they spent a bit of time in the community amongst the people who are the lifeblood of the club it would give them a reality check.

    Buying them a lounge to play playstation in and sending them on holiday isn't going to cut it, I don't think. They need to get in touch with the people whose lives revolve around the club so that they can see the repurcussions of their efforts, or lack of effort.

    It was to do with @Gyp Rosetti talking about planting drug's on the flight and Laxalt being South American :giggle1:

    Nevermind..

    I know, but right now a joke about one of the very few tryers in the squad * me off a bit TBH.



    While we are on the subject someone must be deranged to even think about flying this lot to Dubai,

    Look what happened to Bitton (allegedly) when he decamped to the Middle East recently.

    Unless of course they are hoping for an early end to the season ?

    I’ve thought about this since this morning and I still can’t believe they are even considering a trip to Dubai.

    Every single fan from season tickets holders, the merchandise buyers, whatever people who have put money into the club this year are in times they have never faced before. Most people I know right now are fearing for their jobs, if they are going to be able to afford mortgage payments etc. What little money people have had they put into the club to help steer it in the right direction.

    What a massive * you to the average fan by using their money to fund an all expenses paid trip for these multimillionaires.

    The cause of Celtic is long gone, no more helping the poor or poverty stricken. It’s about helping the already rich people to more and more. Celtic and it’s players have lost touch with the common fan, it’s a sad time we are living in.

    Thought id change the mood and look at it from a glass half full perspective. It did wonders for us last year, whilst that lot crumbled. if we can somehow turn this corner and win the all the games up to then, including at Mordor, then this will all seem like a distant memory. Its wishful thinking right now I know, but I thought id offer something different.

    This is the reality of it.

    The players aren’t going to spending a week working in the local food bank. We might be doing * at the moment, but this is high level (don’t laugh) professional sport we’re talking about. The Dubai trip is focussed solely on improving the playing side, and in fairness it worked well before.

    I still have a major problem with this Dubai trip.

    A) it’s the height of a pandemic. Why take an unnessesary risk?
    B) no winter break other than one extra day
    C) probably paid for by ST money
    D) what do the players actually gain from it?
    E) Lennon said it was for R&R and not an actual training camp.
    F) Rewarding Failure.

    The time would be better spent getting a couple of players in to develop over the next six months for the new season.

    * off. Luxury trip for winners. Butlins in Ayr is still too good for this shower of *.

    Stepped up today and commended for it but too little to late. Bitton * up but one man doesn’t fall for the the team today. They’re all responsible

    Bolingoli was lynched for going to Spain.

    Our ICUs are filling up again and there's quite clearly a much higher risk than back in August when he went, there's been a travel ban on flights due to an even more contagious virus and chaos at the border at dover.

    The whole trip is irrisponsible but making sensible logical decisions hasn't been in Celtics nature this season

    PR disaster in the making. Infection numbers rise and travel restrictions for the common people are in place but Celtic FC thinks they need a luxury trip to Dubai.

    Before we develop a single player or the team we need a manager who has the ability to do it. Since Lenny came back he just proved he can't develop players.
