    Completely agree with the part in bold (and a few other points you made), but who’s to say that’s not what they’re doing behind the scenes? The club can’t make all those negotiations public.

    My point was questioning what good announcing Howe will start in the Summer does for this season’s results? Players would likely check out even more than they already have with even less reason to impress Kennedy if it was clear he wouldn’t be around next year.

    I’m not defending the board but if they’re appointing Howe then they’ll sell season tickets, whether it’s now or in the summer.

    A lot of us are just feeling the frustrations from the season and every negative vibe from the media is having a snowball effect. Personally, I’m gonna try and keep calm and trust the board to do the right thing and appoint the right man. I’ve no confidence in them but I keep telling myself ‘we are Celtic! We are a * huge club with huge pulling power’ that’s the perspective I’m gonna use until the new man is announced

    I get some snippets, but I’m not enough of a * to claim to be in the know.

    I’m in no way guaranteeing that the events of my post will come to fruition, but they’ve certainly been discussed within the offices of Celtic Park. All coincides with Dominic Mackay starting too.

    I have now reached the point where any excitement re Howe coming to us has gone. I now fear the worst and will revert to sitting back and watching our club doing what it has always done when it comes to signing someone - * about till we get the cheapest option (Rodgers being an exception). Hopefully I'm wrong but I'm getting used to the failings of our board.

    Honestly... i don't think we've even approached Howe formally nor anyone else for that matter. The way they look at it is there's 6+ weeks of the season left, so we can sort it out then.
    Our board works at a sloths pace or at the most Lawwell is a lazy fat * and leaves everything until the last second.
    Probably a bit of both.

    Favre being mentioned again now, knowing our board they will probably phone Brett.

    * knows what's happening anymore.

    Going by the media coverage Howe wants to bring Richard Hughes as Technical Director. If true, then I don't see the problem in that. That doesn't mean we can't appoint Harkin as well, because we have plenty of areas that the club needs to work on. The club needs an overhaul, not only at the first-team level and having Hughes, primarily for first-team issues and Harkin can deal with the rest of the club's process with input from Howe, Hughes, and others.

    On the coaching staff point. Right now, Howe should be given the say in who he works with directly. We aren't far enough down the line with a proper club structure to be dictating in this area.

    They're not doing a very good PR job of promoting season ticket renewals are they?. Amateurs from top to bottom

    Howe would be a great appointment but we cannot put him ahead of the restructure.

    Howe COULD bring short term success to the club over the next 2-3 seasons but if we get the restructure right, this will bring long term success and stability.

    We need prioritise the restructure and if that means steering away from Howe then so be it. We can’t afford for Howe to walk away in a couple of seasons and take his pals with him.

    As I have said there is only one or two people who know the whole truth and we the fans will be told in due course

    media are just lazy and print anything to get a rise out the situation they love drama and as reporters say don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story or in the daily huns case a * story

    Just when you think you’ve seen every * Celtic fan site, with enough adverts and pop ups to crash yer PC, a new one appears.

    Unbelievable :56:
