    Still seeing some Celtic fans claiming to be delighted with how our summer business has went???

    We needed 2 or 3 before KT left so for me it's a minimum 3 and prefer 4 coming in (no big deal if Sinclair also leaves.).

    I expect sizeable investment and the likes of Taylor will not cut it for me.

    No point discussing it and getting wound up tbh, we all know what the story will be and how it ends...

    We need a first choice LB, another RB, preferably another CB, and then less of a priority is another central midfielder or a striker. Still lots of work for the board to do and if they don't show an intention to invest more than a couple mill on a player, they can get to *.

    Build it and they will come...somehow I can see us closing tiers etc again.

    Need a major statement of intent with regards to recruitment of a handful of positions or the * is gonna hit the fan.

    Absolute gutter of a * * day and to be honest if we were playing in a few hours time I wouldn't be interested in watching it...we need big changes and I am worried its not going to happen.

    Need at least 3 new players in for Slavia (or worst AIK). Two fullbacks and a CDM, would love more obviously.

    We've sold a player for big money and Lennon will get some of it to build his team, same as his first time in charge?

    Since the summer of 2013 Celtic have brought in over £123m in transfer fees and compensation.

    Since the summer of 2013 Celtic have spent £71m on players

    Profit in trading of £52m!!!!

    Some business plan when you see it like that!

    Almost £100m from UCL in that time aswell and UEL!

    Get the finger out and get a RB, LB and CB.

    Lennon obviously wants a CM as well - given we went for Turnbull, Sawyers etc. He also mentioned he wanted a ST, although I think we’re fine there at the moment.

    A lot of business needing done before the end of the month.

    Taking the * now.

    We've signed 4 players. Elhamed has come in and looked solid enough. Boli looks like an absolute liability so far. Jullien has barely featured despite being the first one to join up, about a month and a half ago. Connell is clearly seen as more of a development player for now.

    It's been said time and time again, but once more we are gambling with CL qualification.

    Elhamed Jullien Ajer X

    X being a left back that can actually defend. That defence should have been sorted and ready to go for the last round of qualifiers. Even if we are to sign a left back over the next week, we'll either be throwing them in at the deep end against Slavia (if we beat Cluj) or they won't be featuring at all. That's just complete negligence yet again.

    Perraud saying today he can’t explain why Celtic just suddenly rubbered his agent!

    I know that was my point, I’m not saying Lenny will get the full fee but he needs the guts of it.

    Was a different time, are you just a wind up or just oblivious to how we have done business recently? Why did we even need to sell Tierney to fund a rebuild? We never and this will be a repeat of the last 5 years we will find cheap options and hope they turn out good.
