    I see your point. Any recommendations for someone overseas. Can cancel celtictv, but then don't get to watch the games. Cutting off my nose to spite my face...

    With new details emerging about the caveats attached to the Scottish Government Covid loans, us being the only club not to take one seems clear.

    No bonuses or above inflation pay-rises can be given to Directors until the loans are paid back.

    Going into our fifth competitive match with Ralston, Taylor and Bitton is the highest level of neglect, incompetence and utter failure to do their job..

    Useless is too kind to describe our board..

    There has been so many times throughout the years that Ive said 'if we could sort out the defence we could be a seriously good team'. I just hope to * the board arent going to make the same old mistake and leave us short at the back, it will come back to bite us in the * as it has time and time again over the years especially in Europe. We need a bare minimum of 2 RB's one LB and 2 CB's. I have a horrible feeling we will end up getting a RB, LB and a CB, a few injuries and we will be in the * if that happens.

    Fair play to those who turned up, to hold the board to account today!

    Any idea on numbers or anyone go?

    The spinless * need to do something about the way we are being refereed. Unfortunately these croppy boys are to fond of the bed

    Excellent. The board now have two clear options: keep the fans happy by doing what Ange tells them to do, or face trouble. Cough the money up, you Tory psychopaths!

    The only worrying thing about turning in performances like we did today is that the tight-fisted board may begin wondering if we actually need as many reinforcements as were first thought, they dont need much excuse to keep their money in their pocket. Big Ange needs to keep the pressure on them and make sure he gets what he needs. Dom McKay must deliver the required signings.

    Whilst watching the game I thought this, but also thought about Anges signings, Hart/McCarthy the jury is still out, but Kyogo and Abada are a great bit of business. I’m not sure how much input he had Leil but he obviously knows a player. When was the last time we made 4 signings that went into the first team and improved it instantly? The board need to back him and allow him to bring in more players, I canny see him wasting 3 million on the likes of Bayo, Bangura etc, the guy seems to actually have knowledge of what and who he wants.

    Some people will think last night result gives the board a get out of jail card but I still think we missed a big opportunity if we had prepared properly for the qualifiers and got the players we have in earlier.
    If we were still in it it could be us going for a 70 million jackpot of qualifying this year and winning the league .
    I now hope the board don't * up now before the transfer window closes and get the five signings that will help Ang to win the league this season .

    I feel like they are getting a pass based purely on rumours of players we are linked with.

    They need to * off so we can move on as a club. These are fairly straightforward signings we're missing out on. Seemingly the players are willing to come here but we're too * incompetent to get deals done.

    Taking far too long to get players in the door, season already up and running, already out of the CL, it's not good enough.


    We have to focus on ourselves not the huns.

    Whilst I agree on getting players in quicker, it would have been a tall ask to qualify for the UCL through this route of ours regardless of who we signed.

    Would it have given us a better chance? Aye, would it have guaranteed us to beat PSV etc with Ange just in the door..nope.

    We probably would have seen out Midjtylaand though which means guaranteed Europe already.

    That doesn't excuse the board. I really hope this is the last season we are in this position...if we win the league then qualifiers might not even need to be given a second thought.

    Probably haggling over personal terms with players just like the Buta situation where the club's agreed a transfer fee but not the personal terms and these clowns know we have only one first team right back in Ralston .

    Ange said at least 2 in this week, then changed it today again to 2 in a week..

    I can't see anyone coming in by the end of this week now..

    It's a shambles really..

    Agree with that, but at least an effort could've been made to give the manager the best possible chance, it just comes across as lazy and lacking any ambition, a potential revenue of 30-40 mil was up for grabs, but even that wasn't enough to put a rocket up the Board's * and spur them into some kind of action.

    Who knows maybe thay had already written it off from the start, wouldn't surprise me one bit tbh.
