    IF we get finalise Scales, a CB and Giakoumakis, the board have done their part to rebuild.

    At LB, CB x2, RB, DM, RW and ST x2? Nothing controversial about that opinion at all... Also about 3 or 4 youths for the Colts who might step up...

    Achieve that and it's an excellent window, so long as we don't lose Eddy and Christie at the last minute, for a load of money banked and not see the moves completed in the next window

    In all fairness, a pair of baws turning your dug into a human uncle is kinda controversial... :56:

    Scored some phenomenal goals, which seems to give the impression that he's an amazing finisher. He isn't. Often needed a few good chances to score one.

    I reckon opposing fans continually trying to get the other side done for being racist won't play well in the long run. In my view, it plays into the hands of those in the Scottish government who already despise Scottish football culture and want to interpret all songs about nationality, waving flags, etc as racist or sectarian. Using hate crime and anti-sectarian laws against each other will just come back to bite football fans in the long run.

    I disagree, people should always call out racism as it's the right thing to do. Doesn't matter who is guilty of racism, whether that's our own fans or anyone else in society, we should always call it out.

    I miss the rebs at Celtic Park. I know...I know....21st century and all that. But I do. Atmosphere used to be belting in the jungle against the auld rangers....roaring out the Broad Black Brimmer and Boys of the Old Brigade.

    Last time it was that good was when Linfield came to town and we gave them it proper hardcore. The full selection and they were raging oot their *....Didnt feel one bit bad about it though due to them being a blatantly couldnt give a * sectarian club.

    No saying its the right thing...Im just saying I miss when I was a boy and the rebs got sung full pelt all the time. My faither says in the 70's they even played them over the tannoy

    People are definitely getting carried away with predictions . We played well last Wednesday but Alkmaar should have scored a couple.

    The same way I'm confident we will score I'm not confident the huns won't.

    If I'm honest, the vast majority of Celtic-hun games since Rodgers left have been *, boring, snooze fests. And many of those games were one-sided. Apart from the 2019 cup final.

    I reckon this game at the weekend will be the best in recent memory. High energy, fast paced, full of goals.

    Kyogo seems in a similar vein just now.

    To be fair Ronaldo, one of the best strikers to ever play the game, sometimes * up seemingly easy chances and needs 3 or 4 chances to get the goals. Sometimes he won’t score at all! It happens to all strikers. Very few will score with every chance that comes their way. It’s impossible.
    Don’t know what some fans expect from some footballers to be honest.

    It’s when they take the important chances that makes them what they are - Kyogo had one against AZ and took it

    This one feels like it could have different angles to it.

    The first from a negative perspective, the Board had a lot to do with putting us in the place that our squad and club found itself in. The poor choice of previous manager, allowing the Howe saga to run for months and so close to the start of the new season, the lack of a proper recruitment and footballing structure at the club lead to poor decisions in recruitment and the lack of a pathway for promising youngsters. From this line of thought what we have brought in plus 3
    more is the absolute minimum that was required.

    However a more positive outlook is they have slowly woke up and putting the past to one side, have brought in players to back the new manager against a difficult backdrop.

    Which one I lean towards will depend on the next two results and the remaining business we do in the transfer market.

    Not sure if this is even controversial tbh.

    “Slippy” is horrendous patter. Would cringe if a 10 year old said it, never mind an *.

    The one and only term to describe the orcs current manager.

    More importantly though, it’s not a Celtic opinion…

    Considering it only seems to be fuds in our fanbase who say it, then it is Celtic related.

    Not a problem, Officer Doof.
