Roll on the new signings this page is becoming about as positive as a boot to the nuts. 2 weeks of transfer window left and people constantly moaning. Look who Sevco have bought. Who have they bought? A bunch of players that can't even get a game for Scotland. Celtic will make quality signings when they are good and ready. Not one of us has a clue what BR or PL is doing behind the scenes yet quick enough to moan just because they haven't signed on Jan 1st. You would think our team was crap the way people talk on here.

It’s january 18th now tho mate.

18 Jan 2018 14:07:23
And let's be honest bhoys. if we never brought anybody in would any of us be that surprised? . still though we live in hope.

18 Jan 2018 14:21:27
That's it Kev there is 13 days left to do business. I'll judge the Board on February 1st.

18 Jan 2018 14:37:00
Stan people are moaning because Celtic are reverting to our default mode of recent history which is push on win league build anticipation then slowly regress due to lack of investment in the team. So far we've signed another project from a crap league who I doubt will improve us much if any, we've signed a centre half who rarely plays and who may or may not be better than what we've got, we've now got rogic, Armstrong Roberts Hayes and compper all out for a vital month with a lot of games. I'm sure Brendan said he wanted players bedded in for Dubai and looking ahead to the summer qualifiers. I hope to be proven wrong but I expect disappointment with a loan signing all we get who isn't better than what we have. If only the transfer window opened for a week it would save a lot of hassle and ultimate disappointment as I expect for a 3rd transfer window in a row. That said roll on Saturday when we can get back to watching whoever pulls on the hoops😃.

I agree, we might get a loan signing who won’t be any better than we have, but more realistically, we won’t sign anyone between now and February, that’s got to be odds on, the guys in charge don’t want to spend money, simple.

18 Jan 2018 14:44:55
I think people expect a signing to be as easy as yes/ no Jim, the reality is it is always going to take longer than we want. Plenty time yet to get deals done and i personally don't care if they happen on Jan 31st as long as they are done. A club goes out and buys a player on Jan 25th then suddenly these clubs have players available who maybe were not available at the start of the month. I think people need to calm down and let's see what happens over the next 13 days.

Where do you lads get yer crystal balls i want one, would help with my betting and lottery this weekend.

18 Jan 2018 14:54:43
Stan, it’s not a crystal ball, it’s just experience from watching how Lawwell and co operate, there will be no signings coming in unless it’s one on loan, who, like we’ve said, will prob be no better than what we have, and also prob get injured.

18 Jan 2018 15:10:17
So not only are we going to get a loan deal they are going to get injured aswel. What else is it going to rain when he is introduced to the fans?

No one moaned at PL when he went and bought Sinclair, Dembele, Ntcham, Kouassi etc and took Roberts and Edouard in on loan.

18 Jan 2018 15:16:46
Jim1972, I'm sure I read BR saying he wanted a couple of arrivals for the trip to Dubai too. I think he said that even after Compper had arrived.

18 Jan 2018 15:44:51
So what's your experience of how Lawwell and co have been operating recently Cjb77? Since BR has been here we've paid £3M for Sinclair, £3M for Kouassi and over £4M for N'tcham, our highest fee in a decade, seems to me like they are willing to spend money when a player of interest becomes available.

18 Jan 2018 16:00:45
Glad you lot are not in charge of the Tannoy on a Saturday the team would be running out to the Undertakers theme tune 😂.

18 Jan 2018 16:06:33
Kev, look at how much they’ve raked in, if your happy at their net spend fair enough, I’m not, I feel they could’ve spent double what they have, and not pushed the boat out.

18 Jan 2018 16:30:22
Brendan did previously say he wanted the players in early for the Dubai trip, personally I’m expecting us to be running around at the last minute with a bid which ultimately fails, then go for a late alternative which we don’t have time to get over the line . It’s probably the cynic in me but we have seen it all many times before. Even the most loyal fans of the board can see we need investment to freshen up the side, to me this season we seem to have regressed ( possibly due to the amount of games, injuries to key players and possibly players getting too comfy ) . The defence looks really poor in Europe and even started to look dodgy in domestic games. I appreciate it’s not easy to pick up players but new players gives everyone a lift including players that have been here for a while . Like someone said earlier about our net spend but surely after two champions league qualification, plus what we have brought in from Van Dijk we could push the boat out a bit . Standing still is basically going backwards, but to be fair the club are pretty good at keeping deals quiet lately until something has been agreed and I hope this is the case but we shall see in a week or two 🙏☘️.

18 Jan 2018 16:43:12
You feel they could’ve spent double? What detailed knowledge of the club’s overall finances is that based on?

18 Jan 2018 20:50:09
'There will be no signings unless'. How do you know that exactly?

18 Jan 2018 21:17:56
Calm yourselves bhoys, No matter how much Brendan wanted players in early and no matter how hard P L tried there is no guarantee that we could get the players we want early, or at anytime for that matter . Players and their agents hold most of the cards .
I am very sure that Celtic could have signed a number of players but these players would not be players that Brendan wanted.
Fans could be rubbing their hands in joy with the names of players already signed, but if they were signed solely to pacify fans, the chances of our team doing any better would be remote.

19 Jan 2018 14:53:41
Kev, look at season ticket money, CL money, sponsors from Magners New balance etc sales from players, VVD moving to liverpool probably covers the cost of the players you mentioned earlier alone, I’m pretty sure they could’ve managed to spend a bit more on getting in a couple more good players, Peter Lawwell must love guys like you, a yes man in the stands who’s happy with anything that gets served up.

19 Jan 2018 14:57:11
Stan are u mad we could never take the sevco theme tune lol.
