I find Brendan’s comments on the transfer window quite alarming. He’s admitted himself that he’s not sure if we will be stronger after the window . I hope this is just a kick up the arse for the board as we were told before the window that we had targets and were “down the line with a few of them “ with the work that they had put in. We were also told that we only needed a few quality players to enhance the squad where so far we have lost two good squad players and replaced them with no one . Before people come on saying we have weeks left in the window, when the manager starts saying it, there must be cause for concern . We obviously wanted cover at right back, as he had the lad in for talks in Austria . We obviously don’t fancy Schar much as at supposedly 3.5 million is not that much money to us, where Brendan said if we want to bring in a top centre back we need to spend big money and he’s not sure if the club are prepared to do it. This seems short sighted to say the least, gambling with the champions league money when we are in a position of strength to put our foot down and push on away from our competitors in Scotland .

For weeks I have been trying to make this point. if we don9get into the champions league there will be a rubbish storm heading for Brendan and the board on why yet again we were piss poor in the transfer window especially when that lot across the city have no money and bought 10 players in and not all off them are rubbish. this could be a painfully wake up call.

Thats really flawed mate. Maybe we are still 'well down the line' with targets, CL is our carrot remember, transfers these days rarely go smooth or quickly. Also, the issue of the board, i would think a manager of BR's quality will have known, and will know, the kinda money available to him. If there's no one in our price range, who he thinks can improve us and themselves, why sign them?

Schar? From what i remember it was a paper that linked us, are we believing what we want and ignoring the fact that these 'newspapers'are full of anti Celtic rubbish every day? As for your gambling with CL money? Are you not gambling big cash for a player who might get injured or be a flop? Then you don't qualify and lose more?

We are all the same mate, we just want better players to lift us, but this CL is becoming a millstone round our neck. We will NEVER win that, as things stand. Getting through the groups is very difficult, the El is a tournament we might get a run in, but some of our own think that's not enough. We play in a league that hamstrings us as a club. Some people need to wake up.

Tonight is a massive game, huge, let's focus on that. You get the impression some are waiting for a mistake to say told you so.

@scoop: sounds like your defining Celtic in a comparison with sevco? Who cares who they buy, not one i had heard of other than arfield, an ex falkirk player who Burnley did not need. They are irrelevant to us and our way of working.

25 Jul 2018 08:55:18
I'm sorry but Imo sevco have bought quite well and have some strong young players in that will raise their game. You have to see they have improved considerably on last season. Who had heard of ajer dembele edouard vvd wanyama etc. It's how they play not who knows them that worries me.

25 Jul 2018 09:16:50
How do you know they have strengthened from last season? They have yet to be properly tested! The games they have played they haven't looked great to be honest! They've brought in a bunch of young players on loan thinking they will storm the SPFL, sounds to me like they are underestimating the league and underestimating the likes of Aberdeen and Hibs etc! They've took whoever Liverpool would give them, not necessarily the players they wanted, desperate measures in my eyes! King has come out and said they should be more competitive this season, doesn't really sound like the words of a confident man! They give the same hype every season! Our current team and manager are lightyears ahead of them!

@CBHOY. I assume you have seen them mate, as i have, and noticed they have not been pressed defensively. Fairly average in midfield and same up top.

Scoop the person troll.

25 Jul 2018 12:29:39
Why would I troll a team I care about. we have to many players that are free wheeling because they know Brendan has bought players in to challenge them in that position. now to add further grief dembelle out for 3 weeks again with hamstring issues. i.

Scoop injuries happen do you want us to buy another striker to fill in till the mousse is fit and they'll be another player picking up a wage who'll not play we've been unlucky with injuries especially cb. we've got about 5 or 6 cbs on the books.

{Ed007's Note - Brendan Rodgers:

"People talk about lining up your ducks but they are never going to be all aligned. That’s the reality of it.
It is probably easier to write or say if you lose a centre-half you should have another one. I think people expect you to have 10 centre-halves. Football doesn’t work like that in the real world.
It might do on the computer games and whatnot but it doesn’t work like that. You have to build a squad but if you bring people in and they get injuries then it is a challenge.
You can’t moan about it. You just need to get on with it as best you can.”

Looks more like he's having a pop at people moaning about transfers than admitting we are weaker.
Didn't see him say that in any interview I have see or read lately.

{Ed007's Note - That's exactly what he means, Kev. Here's the link https://goo.gl/4YBqVo
