    Would rather we got rid of players this window and got money in for the rebuild in the summer. Would be happy to see eddy, ntcham, Christie and so on leave this window, the leagues finished and we could lose them and still finish 2nd.

    If the new manager say was Eddie Howe why don't the board get him in now and give him 5 months to prepare the team for Europe in July .
    It's typical Celtic board wait till June looking for a manager and within weeks the champions League ties are upon us and no new signings .

    Because they are * tight. 6 months salary they don't want to pay for. Are squad will * off this summer, it will be a couple of years before we win the league.

    With everything that is going on with covid, people losing their jobs and the fact they have fecked the 10 and this season completely. I think they are scared stiff of lack of ST renewals. Especially if the stadiums are still closed next season, which i think will be the case.

    They will save what money we do have to keep us afloat next season, with as little debt as possible and to make sure they get their pockets lined on the way out the door...

    Yes it is a worry.

    Why haven't we signed Lennon's P45 yet?

    Sanctioned by the guy that brought in Shved and Bayo 2 years ago for a combined £5m, that then contributed heehaw?

    Or the other guy that brought in Klimala for £3.5m then played Christie ahead of him as striker in a crucial UCL qualifier? And £5.5m for Soro & Turnbull and did everything in his power to not play them while the team was getting dicked on the park constantly?

    I don't want either of them having any input whatsoever on any incomings going forward.

    Let the new manager & DOF appraise the squad and decide what is needed, our current leaders haven't got a clue.

    Invest money that we would have spent into looking after the staff that help run the club on a daily basis and the staff who are vital to match day operations. Do something decent Celtic.

    With the league all but over I can’t see the board giving Lennon dough to bring players in if he is likely to get the boot in the summer IMO.

    I would honestly prefer we bring a new manager in now who can identify his own targets and rebuild for next season. It’s brutal how we always seem to be scrambling prior to the European qualifiers and then get papped out because the team haven’t had time to gel.

    Some crappy loan deal at best is all you have to look forward to. Or bring back a has been.

    When have we realistically signed someone we needed?. We always * about looking for the cheap option or play players out of position. Amateurish to say the least

    Totally agree. Plus there is the reality of the virus running amuck at the moment is hardly encouraging clubs to make any significant moves in this transfer window. Never mind the players themselves. I mean would you be wanting to up sticks to another country right now? I certainly would not.
