    And we have 8 games in that period, including; more eurpean qualifiers, the league Cup opener against hearts, a game against the huns.

    So really, it's a lot less than 30 days to get the work done

    I can't believe we still don't have a right back.

    Actually sitting here laughing thinking about it.

    I would also take big Arnie as he could probably deal with those high balls better than what we have at the moment

    I dunno why we got rid, even if Duffy was going to be great, Jozo was good cover.

    Yep, I reckon big Jozo would have dealt with that cross ball better that Bitton who didn't even jump.

    I would be shocked if we see more than 3 players leave the club, or more than 3 more come in.

    We just don't do that much business in such a quick fashion.

    There appears to be absolutely no transfer interest in Eduoard or Christie. The Brighton stuff has been shown to be bullshit. No one wants them when they can get them for free. Barkas might go out on loan if we can bring someone else in.

    We'll almost certainly bring in a right back, but just the 1. Ralston is gonna be our back up.

    We've got Starlet, Julien, Welsh, Bitton, Murray at CB. No way the boards gonna bring in another.

    The truth is that this mess we're in is gonna take 3/4 more transfer windows to fix. This stuff about selling 10 guys and bringing in 10 in one window just isn't gonna happen.

    We will wait until the last day of the window and then panic buy/loan 3 or 4 players after selling Edouard and Christie. We know the drill.

    Don't worry. Lawwell Jr will give City Group a call at 7:45 pm on August 31st, securing a short term loan deal.

    It's madness,a supposedly professional football club trying to reach the champions league with no right back .it's not even one position we are trying to do without

    Think it will take another couple of windows for ange to get the team he wants. I can't remember the figures from when they were announced by the board but does anybody know roughly how much cash celtic are sitting on? As ange just seems to have spent the ajer fee round about 13m. Klimala,Bayo,shved,hendry all went for decent fees also not sure if those figures posted a few months back included the frimpong sale?

    Trying to be realistic and based on recent transfer rumours, I’d like our squad to look something like this come the end of the window:

    Hart / Bain

    Juranovic / Ralston
    Itakura / Jullien
    Starfelt / Welsh
    New LB / Taylor / Scales

    McCarthy / Soro / Shaw
    Christie / Turnbull
    McGregor / McCann

    Abada / Forrest
    Lovric / Johnston

    Kyogo / Bayo or Nesbit / Ajeti

    The one position we’ve not really been linked with anyone who would improve us appears to be left back, so I’m not entirely sure who we could target there. Personally I don’t think Doig is ready.

    A total of 7 more incomings, which would hopefully allow us to move on Barkas, Bitton, Boli, Rogic, Edouard, Griffiths. I’d like shot of Ralston and Ajeti too, with replacements brought in, but just don’t see that happening this window.

    If Christie was to leave, McCann would be quite a natural replacement as a centre midfielder in terms of energy, so I’d probably try and sign a proper number 10, possibly Aaron Mooy.

    Long story short, there’s still a lot of work to be done.

    I agree but im also now thinking that Ralston is better suited to Ange system than Taylor and see the left side the bigger issue.

    But in saying that we need two full backs in ASAP - nothing short of walking straight into the team
