    Ultimately Celtic is run as a business. Despite how important the league and 10 in a row is. The amount of money on offer from the champions League if we make the group's is dwarfs everything else combined. So from a business perspective I understand the why, I don't agree with it, but I understand it

    I a totally think we are in great shape this year. Sure we need a RB but I feel big areas have been covered. Younger players have developed further. Keep tierney and we are laughing.

    We are going to need a RB and a LB of real genuine quality..

    Wouldn’t mind the young CB from Partizan..

    And then a DM and CM followed by a ST.

    For me the bulk of our work is still to be done in this window..

    That’s exactly why the league is top priority - if you don’t win the league you don’t get the chance to qualify for the CL. European football is huge but we can’t afford to budget for it/assume we’ll get there, as we all know from last year it isn’t a dead cert we’ll make it

    We'll be waiting on that Tierney money.

    With £40m in bank and 3 strips, record season ticket sales etc we shouldn’t be tbh

    For me the absolute bare minimum we need is:

    RB, LM and ST. If Tierney goes then obviously add in a LB

    Why a ST at bare minimum? Think Griff, Bayo and Eddy’s strong when we’re mainly playing with one up top

    I think that we should be okay there for now. We might need to bring someone in during the January transfer window to replace Édouard though: he will likely leave next summer.

    Bayo might surprise us.

    Griff and Bayo arent reliable enough and Edouard can't play constant again.. NL may also want to play 2 up at times therefore 4 is necesaary

    All 3 have had prolonged periods out over the last 12 months, if we're going to be playing 2 up top in specific games (like we did against Kallju at home) then we're going to need a 4th striker, particularly if we get injuries and suspensions when the games come thick and fast in November and December.

    An Édouard-type loan could be ideal.

    I see Lennon playing up 2 up at times this season and all 3 we currently have dont have the best of records with injuries

    Yeah if Lenny is going to play two up top a another forward is a must and I would still like to see two midfielders coming in as well .

    The fact we will be starting the domestic season with Bitton at CB and no natural RB is the reality call we need.

    We have added two good players to the team in Jullien and Boli however the overall squad is weaker.

    Cluj will be a tough opponent, we should have enough to get past them if we don't make any daft mistakes. Play off round is going to be extremely difficult unless we bring in another two quality players.

    We face the Huns on 31st August at Ibrox, by then I want us to have all the new faces in and a settled team.

    We're due a performance at that * hole considering our last 2 efforts. I would love nothing more for us to turn up on the day and annihilate them, another 5-1 would be ideal

    We absolutely know that's not going to happen. Rangers have significantly strengthened and seem to be seriously up for the challenge this year. Let's avoid the arrogant posts, they have bought well. I worry about the season, given our poor transfer window

    Would love nothing more than that but I'm apprehensive about our chances at the moment. Not because I think Rangers have drastically improved (they will have slightly) but by the looks of it we will be going into the game with an unsettled back line and new faces not up to speed.
