    I'll reserve judgement on him until I've seen him play a good amount of football. But his natural position is CB and he has only played RB occasionally so imo he isn't a RB never mind a replacement for Lustig

    I think he's a rb that's played cb. But we both agree we need another rb

    Record again running with Lennon will be unlikely to sign anymore players for Celtic until he move fringe players on or sells players!

    So even if that was to remotely be true we moved on 12 players this summer and brought in 3!

    We lost 3 right backs and replaced them with none.

    We lost 2 centre backs and replaced them with 2.

    We lost a left back and replaced him with 1.

    Lost Burke got back Shved which already looks an upgrade.

    Lost Weah got Griffiths fit.

    Rest where all none contributors - Allan, Marvin, Mulumbu, de Vries.

    That the line they are constantly going with Celtic are done unless they sell! Have to admit even though I hate those * it is looking like we won’t sign anyone until we sell which imo is criminal!

    Record are serial liars, as are their cohorts. We don't need to sell to nuy. Utter horseshit.
    I do think we are waiting to see what european competition we will be playing. Not the way I would like us to operate, but I think that will determine how we move on. Should we beat Cluj we will have targets for CL scenario and also for EL scenario.

    Gotta be honest, we are definitely linked to the euro competition for who will come to us, but for me, it's all about waiting for the English transfer window to close. We really can't compete with, or resist, the crazy money they throw around. If we know that we won't lose players, and attract their competition, I think we'll bring in a couple more, and possibly a loan or 2 from down there too

    Don't get your hopes up too much. I thought we were doing something similar last year, instead all we did was sell Dembele and get a last minute loan for Benkovic.

    We have never went and signed quality after Europe was decided. First season we qualified under Rodgers we spent a massive 600k on Gamboa to prepare us for the groups

    Im tired. Just so tired with this.

    Every morning before I even grab a cup of scauld, I wake up, I check the online rags, check newsnow updates, ffs I even check celticrumors and Kerrydale.... just to see if we've made ANY movement on this * debacle.

    Nothing.

    Nada.

    Zip.

    Im actually done. I havent searched a transfer story in 4 days and past the point of hoping at this stage.

    Its an actual, * unmitigated disgrace that our club are pulling this *.

    Theres NO excuses. Reasons aye. But ZERO excuses for us to act like this.

    Somebody's head needs put on the * block for this utter farce.

    I’d love a few hours inside your head mate. Must be the most conflicted person I’ve ever came across :56:

    Constantly using headlines from papers but gee people pelters when they mention papers, constantly greeting aboot transfers etc but as soon as somebody goes off on one your the first in to tell them to calm down:56:

    Here you’ve made out like the Record is full of * and a detailed post as to how but in your next post your agreeing with the article :56:

    No trying to have a go or anything, just notice it in every thread:giggle1:

    We done well to get Julien and Mbombo in and Connell looks like he could be a decent prospect but he's a good bit off being a regular starter for us. The Israeli will hopefully be a decent utility player for us.

    All that said, I agree with the sentiment of your post.

    Last summer was an absolute shitshow, from the sluggish, arrogant and ultimately failed pursuit of McGinn to Boyata downing tools and crashing out of the UCL qualifiers to the Lawwell v Rodgers ego Olympics to punting our top striker on deadline to day without signing a replacement. All the while the supporters are the ones caught in the middle.

    We are now at a point where a good, strong investment in the squad could set us up for years; secure qualification to the Champions League and we're well on our way to 10 in a row. Thanks to the Dembele transfer fee, the rat's compensation and the Van Dijk sell on we are completely capable of backing our new manager and doing the complete opposite of what we did last summer....and yet tomorrow we will be starting with Bitton at CB and either Ralston or a guy that's not played in any of our pre-season or qualifying games. It stinks.

    We must be onto our 8th or 9th choice RB at best having failed to secure any of them on a deal and since the shambles of a Turnbull deal concluded when he failed his medical we have still not brought in a CM despite 5 weeks passing since.

    I thought given the fact that last summer was fresh in the memory and that Lennon had taken a week to accept our offer that this summer would be different and we'd do things promptly. I was naive. Nothing has changed.

    Tierney will go for £25 million, possibly Ntcham for £7 million, Sinclair for £2 million and Lennon will get a fraction of that to replace them.

    So......

    Try and sum things up as they stand. Its day before first league game of new season and I think most agree (even the Lawelll fan boys) we are minimum 2 or 3 players short.

    BUT the only current transfer gossip/saga we have is we may be selling Tierney and now who has been our first choice CB for 6months now in Jozo.

    So essentially further weakening the squad.

    Bravo Celtic

    We have 31 players in our squad. I think that we could probably cut that by about 11, with 6 incomings.

    Loan- Henderson, Hendry, Ralston, Miller, Morgan, Connell

    Sell- Tierney, Ntcham, Sinclair, Kouassi, Hayes

    Buy- LB, RB, DM, CM, LW

    Loan in- ST

    So cut squad to 26.

    We can't afford to cut our squad without signing a few first team players first.

    If we sell KT, Jozo & Ntcham we need a cb, rb, lb, cm at the very minimum. Which is a lot to get done in a few weeks.
