Why is everyone so down. We are not sevco we don't need 10 or 11 players we need 2 maybe 3 and we still have about 3weeks of the window left so calm down our business will be done.

Agree1 Disagree1

We are down because since we didn’t sign the two or three we look likely to be out of the CL. And with that lose the 60m+ that gets us even better players. Quite simple really.

And if today's papers are to be believed as quotes from BR, it would appear that he has given the board a shot across the bow.

10 Aug 2018 09:21:29
Let’s hope the lads can get the result we need over there. Because shot across the bow or not, without money class players he is talking about won’t be coming here. That’s the issue. We are upset because the board have put that in great peril. No one else. We will have scuppered ourselves and that happens too often with our club over decades. That why people are raging. It’s hard enough without undermining ourselves.

10 Aug 2018 09:32:21
Magicpole what makes you believe that 2 or 3 new signings would of guaranteed qualification for CL? You talk some nonsense sir.

10 Aug 2018 09:46:06
Marco you are correct . but the boards biscuit Tim mentality in not getting the 2/ 3 players in we need means we are on the verge of exiting the cl . remember Marco this isn't a one off. our boards historically rubbishe all over our managers . most famously bunnet telling tommy burns publically through the press that if he wanted more players he'd have to dig into his own pocket. financial prudence is acceptable if we have finished second or third 7 years in a row and are on the bones of our arse. hotels . light shows . walkways Peter Lawell is fantastic at these things but he and the board should not hamstring our 2nd most successful manager financially . do you want to bring back b8g ronnie and let the board dominate him and bring in a succession of cheap duds like Carlton Cole etc etc again. the board want to project an illusion of celtic being a top drawer european/ world class club. but you can't do that buying players from the football equivalent of Poundland. the fans need to publically show them we are not happy and require them to back our manager now.

You're one of the few that are raging MP. Didn't see many raging walking out of CP on Wednesday night.

I am not certain of anything except not brining in the players we know we needed makes a difficult task all the more so. There is no excuse I will ever except for going backward. We have money, he had a list, he sat in it. We are now looking down the barrel of a gun. That’s Lawells daily and Brendan has come down on the side of those whobsaid we need to act. We need to get them in early. We need a couple of class players. None of that happened and it’s not our fault, it’s not the team’s fault and it’s not Brendan’s. Not giving us a better chance is a scandal and pathetic management of our CL qualifier journey.

Hanging off for possible better deals then crashing out of the gravy train that pays for it is an utter shambles. Only Lawell and his blind faith supporters could argue otherwise. Brendan’s words tell it like it is. He recognises you can stand still never mind go back as we have. We haven’t even replaced the quality we listvbever mind brought additions in. How anybody can even attempt to justify that is utterly beyond me. Indefensible. Over to you Lawell, we are all watching.

Don't get this we've went backwards nonsense, we've lost Armstrong who never featured much last season through injury and Sviatchenko who was about 3rd choice. We've signed Edouard permanently which looks a great bit of business and held onto all our other major players.

10 Aug 2018 10:15:22
People need to get a grip. 2 weeks ago we were all saying screw hibs for trying to blackmail us and make us pay over the odds for mcginn. Ok so it didn't work out but I agree with the club. We are targeting quality players who sometimes don't want to come (denayer) . We knew aek was going to be tough but we outplayed them at paradise and we will do so again in Greece (3 1 my prediction) The board will sign quality players which will move us forward to another treble. Now let's get behind the Bhoys for the game against the grass growers and stop being so pessimistic. HH 3 to go till 10 in a row.

10 Aug 2018 10:33:23
It's not up for debate the man asked for a couple quality additions on the back of Losing 2, and has got nowt up till now, eddy is a great signing and costly but because he was here it kind of goes under the radar, we got cash for Armstrong and allegedly Virgils move, never mind offloading a right few and we sold over 53.000 sts so there's no excuse our path to the cl would not have been guaranteed but it just may have been a bit easier.

10 Aug 2018 10:43:38
This is playing right into the hands of our detractors and haters. The unfortunate thing is for the first time since his arrival, BR actually appears to be frustrated and even angry at the situation on transfers and although there may well be new arrivals, it will be too late for what happened on Wednesday and we need to just deal with that and concentrate on what quality we do have.
The players that played against AEK had every chance to win the game and on another night might have scored three or four.
The negativity should be at least put on hold until the second leg is over as this is not PSG, Real, or Barcelona we are going to and if the players turn up, give 100% and carry a wee bit of luck - who knows? Everyone else is waiting and hoping for us to fail, so let's get right behind the Bhoys starting at that rubbishe-hole in Edinburgh on Saturday and 'always look on the bright side'.

10 Aug 2018 10:37:36
Unreal the amount of people still defending the board here. Peter Lawwell has become like Kim Jong Un, the great leader can do no wrong.

People are almost brainwashed about it.

We needed a quality CB for 3 years and now I'm hearing people bang on about 3 weeks of the window when it may be too late.

Stevie saying 3 signings wouldn't guarantee qualification. It would certainly help, put it that way.

Apparently signings don't help in football! why have we ever signed anyone. Heard it all now.

10 Aug 2018 11:13:17
Tesla i'm not PLs biggest fan, i gave him pelters until appointing BR. I have given him a bit of slack until this week over his pathetic efforts to sign McGinn. I can't however point the finger at him for not getting a CB. Surely that is the Managers job, infact we have an abundance of CBs and have had for 3 years. If they were all playing like superstars there would be no discussion. Boyata and Jozo went through a spell when they looked classy and solid together. As Ed has said numerous times are we really going to invest in another CB unless one or even 2 leaves.

10 Aug 2018 11:52:38
The morons who are brainwashed Tesla are the ones who believe 3 signings would of made it a formality against AEK, we've spent decent money on signings before e. g Kouassi, Pukki, Fortune, Balde, Hooiveld, Sviatchenko etc etc and didn't improve us one bit in fact they set us back. We're not in a position to throw 4 year contracts at players that are not good enough we've been stung in the past doing exactly this. If we are looking to improve any position that is going to take us to another level then the money we spent on Edouard plus is what we're looking at. Then you have the hard bit of trying to convince them to ply their trade in Scotland.

10 Aug 2018 12:31:53
Stevie, what planet you on lol. Signings don't make a difference?

So why should any club ever sign a player then.

Also the list of players you have only prove my point. Kouassi aside the rest were the cheap option lol. Max £2-3mil signings.

I'm pretty confident to say if we had got in CBs last year that AEK wouldn't have caused us much bother going forward.

In fact I was on here saying the same when we bottled it against Zenit and all I was told was how much money Zenit had.

Funny how Dinamo Minsk just done then 4-0.

10 Aug 2018 12:59:40
Stevie name calling people who don't agree or have different opinions isn't reqd . (dont know if your retaliating to someone who called you a moron ) . point on the signings stevie 3 quality signings like the manager says he wants/ needs would make more of a difference than 6poor signings you name and we can all name more . and that's been a big part of our past problems penny pinching on a quantity of cheap options ends up costing more than buying 2/ 3 expensive quality players.

10 Aug 2018 13:32:15
FFS Tesla are you on the wind up or just have difficulty reading? Where did I say signings don't make a difference? Stop making things up to suit your own agenda. F### it I give up with the doom and gloomers .

10 Aug 2018 13:55:39
Firstly Morons wasn't pointed at one particular person so wind your neck in. Secondly it isn't as simple as you and your likes try and make out to sign proven quality that will come in and make a difference when clubs from half the cash laden leagues in Europe are after the same players.

10 Aug 2018 14:01:43
It's not doom and gloom, it's bemusement at why we don't try to build on having a good team.

clearing debt and building strong finance is a good idea initially, but there has to be a long term goal.

This is Lawwells 15th year at it . Time to move to the next phase and start reinvesting properly and be ambitious.

and before anyone mentions "them" dying, they didn't die from spending. They spend money that wasn't theirs, a huge difference.
