    Refusing to back O'Neil after Seville
    Downsizing during the Strachan days
    The bobo balde fiasco
    The Tony mowbray appointment, along with the forever links to subpar calibre manages such as Owen coyle.
    The CEO acting like a director of football
    The wasted signings of guys like Rasmussen, fortune, lassad...
    Failure to capitalise on affiliations with Santos Laguna and the Mexican market.
    Continued downsizing.
    Neil Lennon appointment, and the board realising how easy it was to deflect cheap options, disguised with "knows the city" tactics.
    The allowance of rough sod approach by Lennon and Thompson, leading to that team falling apart (coaches) and the one good one, not being near the club now (mjalby).
    The micromanagement that led to Lennon being told who his assistant manager would be, leading to his leaving the club.
    The fiasco of signing a new manager.
    Telling Roy Keane that deila was to be his assistant.
    Failure to prepare for an alternative and landing with deila.
    Deila being told who his assistant manager would be
    Hiring said assistant, Collins, who already had poor man management run ins with our captain at a previous club.
    The failure to capitalise on a gimmie few seasons and build in Europe. Instead we simply done enough to be better than Aberdeen.
    Appointing Brendan Rodgers, a great signing, but only because Desmond ego took a hot.
    Failure to back Rodgers, much the same as we have in the past due to continued downsizing over decades at this stage.
    The defacto director of football, yet again mirconanaging player signings, leading to Rodgers leaving and ripping out the coaching staff.
    The club stating we will build internal staffing so we don't get to that stage again.
    The club never doing that.
    Appointing Neil Lennon as interim manager, allowing him to publicly state he wasn't going to do anything, but let Kennedy continue where Rodgers left off.
    Hiring Lennon in the showers
    Publicly stating not to have looked at any CVs or candidates.
    Continued downsizing.
    Continued persistence with Lennon, because the fans spoke out.
    Using Covid as an excuse for continued downsizing and as a weapon to blame the fans and everything bar themselves for * the ten.
    Chasing Eddie Howe for 3 months.
    Having Eddie Howe do "due diligence" on the club.
    Hiding the fact Eddie Howe knocked us back.
    Releasing season ticket sales with no manager, but allowing the illusion of Eddie Howe to be the selling factor, when they knew he wasn't coming.
    Hiring a city group employee as the alternative.
    Being so ingrained to not accept change or criticism that the one shining light in the new CEO, is forced to leave the club after 72 days.
    Being in 6th place a fifth of the way in to the league, with Aberdeen up next who will have a point to prove with brown, potentially leapfrogging us and dropping us in to bottom half of the table.



    This, all of that is on this * board.

    They've been doing this * for 18 years now.

    And they will continue to do it for another 18 years if, as a group, we continue to hand over our money and tell them it's okay to continue doing what they are doing.


    Stand up for ourselves, have a * backbone already.

    100% this. How any * can defend the board is beyond me.

    They are the problem at the club. The main reason this is happening.

    Yes Ange has to take some blame but the board are at fault.

    * hate them, and that’s why I’m not spending another penny until there is real change.

    I'll admit, I was close to buying a top the other week when down the road. But that voice in the back of my head kept telling me not to.

    That same week, Dom walked out.
    * glad I didn't spend my money on them.

    They really don't deserve it, they don't deserve this support.

    I feel terrible not getting the kids tops and other merchandise again this summer but I’ve made a decision like I did in WGS last season, I gave up my season ticket then due to my discontent with them arseholes and said I will go to games when I can etc.

    I had nearly £400 worth of stuff last year ordered and asked for a refund right away.

    I’m just * sick about it all.

    Now would be great if one of you shareholders who attend the Annual meeting thing whenever it is to actually pipe up and not ask soft ball questions. Seems like everyone who asks questions is to scared to ask any difficult ones?

    Asked Rivaldo do do a trial at Celtic - another that this dumb * of a club board done.

    Honestly, in 2004 that should have been the first sign that we all should have taken a bigger look in to the attitude and direction this club wanted to go in(at board level).
    Imagine asking Rivaldo to do a * trial, here, of all places.

    Madness.

    These incompetent clowns are handing the huns the CL revenue, even from a business point of view, it beggars belief.

    Only business in the world, where the CEO and high ranking board members have literally got away with * its customers and its business revenue.

    3 years without CL, squandering near £100million revenue in the process. No questions answered about it.
    Locking the fans "customers" out of the grounds, putting up fences, no questions answered for it.


    No other business would get away with the negligence this lot have put the club through.

    It's really unbelievable.

    There is no question or ambiguity about it anymore, the board running the club are demonstrably grossly incompetent, but we all just go along with it anyway.

    It really is crazy.

    Fav Celtic Song:
    For those who are in love.....
    The Huns died, the new club took 4 year's to get promoted
    Have been a basket case
    Haven't sold a player for any kind of substantial fee
    Went from diddy manager to diddy manager
    In all kind of debts and court cases

    Yet WE'VE ALLOWED them to no just catch up but overtake us with ease within a few year's of them getting in the top flight. We had all the spending power. The money in the bank. The assets on and off the park. Access to European football every season. Big merchandise deals where we weren't being ripped off..

    Our playing squad is a the weakest in year's
    Our manager has been plucked from the other side of the world as a pal's favour
    We've still got dumb and dumber from last season hanging around
    Our board don't have a clue what they're doing
    Our CEO finally left and was replaced for all of 6 month's at best

    We don't even have an answer or look like we're really trying to wrestle our title back and jackpot 40 million with direct entry for the first time in year's and year's..

    Another season where the Huns will outperform us in Europe..

    They disgust me beyond belief..

    If you sat and explained this to a neutral they wouldn't believe the shift in dominance. It's almost deliberate..

    No Hun could come in and * us over as much as these filthy vermin * have..

    Will keep saying it guys these clowns are not Celtic men and put profit before anything else and till these people are removed we will always be a car crash of a club and it looks almost deliberate what they are doing .

    * angers me, we are only in September and the house is burning again!

    how long till we get a proper DoF? Our club is run so amateurish!

    Who is the current DoF? A lawyer!? What does he know about the sporting side? Most decent clubs have someone with sporting pedigree on such an important place!

    We need someone who outlines a sort of club template. From first team to all the junior teams play in the same style and same setup. Someone with a good reputation, not a friend or dog of the board. His responsibilities should only be on the sporting side. Business side should be run by a business person.

    Invest good money in top class staff. The kind who make players better. In the way you can proper get young talents and then sell them for top dollar, continuously. And not only staff who are Celtic minded. Staff that have a reputation and top notch references. They cost money but on the long run you will benefit through player sales, development and succes on the field.

    Our youth setup seems to be decent enough, since players are coming through to the first team. But we should aim for 2/3 new youth players in the first team each season.

    Our transfers are an utter disgrace! Seems those £2mil transfer misses are these days £5mil misses. Ajeti, Starfelt, Barkas cost a total of 15£mil! Let that sink in… We just buy without a real plan it seems. So frustrating. Of course not everyone is a miss. But we have too many fails and lose too much money. Transfers, wages, agents want their piece too. But this goes back to not having a good DoF for many years. Cause a good DoF, he knows what qualities have been lost and thus what is expected to get back in. We sell Ajer and get Starfelt. I dont see any similarities in style of play! You would expect there to be a database full of replacements for each position. We write it down on the back of a beermat lol.

    A top class medical staff. The amount of injuries is just a joke. Since may we have been without propper medical staff l, till last week. How can that ever be. How can you expect a manager to prepare properly without medical backup. In 2021 its as important as tactics. Being unfit xan be seen in blood samples, vo2 values, etc… has that all been done in the past two years? So many injuries can be avoided with proper medical guidance. Build up training can be more streamlined too.

    How did we become so dormant? Seems like the end of Roman empire. The board are like the high and mighty getting fat on ancient victories, 9 iar, trebles etc but not seeing that the marauding huns are taking over. It angers me, not so long ago it looked like we had the right ingredients and were a modern run club. But its clear to see that we are anything but a modern run club these days. And when you read the business report of the board, its plain to see that they dont see the issues…

    can these * board members not get sacked ?
