Right I keep reading on here that investment will make us a CL team.

So I ask this question to all who say it.

How much investment will it take?

I'd like to see us do away with current wage structure and 'project' buying. If Celtic are so keen to make cash why not buy experienced quality and reap the benefits when qualifying. Unless of course we all just accept we ain't a big club and everyone is happy to just clear up domestically. Which the Board seem to prefer.

Sadly when it comes to the market we have to shop in Stan we are not a big club. Fan base- worldwide support were massive but huge fan base doesn't bring in 100's of millions of pounds.

15 Aug 2018 11:42:04
Stan how much does an quality experienced champions league player set us back?

20 30 0r 40 million?

Remember quality and experienced.

I'd say if we spent 10-15 million more on 3 key players and sold boyata to cover some cost we would be much further forward. I think Celtic and Brendan handled boyata v poorly as he clearly didn't want to sign a new contract so he should have been moved on and I'm not condoning his actions. I hope Celtic deal with players much quicker than we currently do with players in last year of contracts because this is becoming a recurring issue.

That's why we need a very good scouting network Kev. There must be players out there.

Sadly Stevie that's the way it is, a big club based on support and history.

15 Aug 2018 12:06:37
That's it Jim no one is asking for huge amounts to be spent. We just need to keep improving, i'd be happy with one player per transfer window if it was proven quality that made our 11 stronger.

15 Aug 2018 12:17:36
Stan that's the point it is huge amounts to take the next step.

10 million buys you very little now.
Boyata for example had a bid of
9 million

Edouard a young prospect ( something you said you don't want) costs 9 million

To buy a quality experienced champions league player will cost he'll of a lot of money

Buy 3 and that's more than we will make back.

Best scouts in the world won't find you quality champions league players for a few million.

15 Aug 2018 12:26:03
Stan how must there be quality experienced champions league players that are available for what we can afford?

15 Aug 2018 13:03:43
Plenty players playing all across europe coming into the remaining year of their deals or out of contract. Not everyone has to be bought for £10m. It's about finding this quality. If our scouts are not able to do this then why are we paying them? When did i call Edouard a project? he was at PSG for being an excellent player.

15 Aug 2018 13:10:23
He is a project. He was a psg youth player. He's hardly kicked a ball at senior level.

15 Aug 2018 13:11:18
He definitely isn't experience quality that you said you want.

15 Aug 2018 13:26:55
That no 5 that played for aek last night looks a good CB weshould try and sign him.

15 Aug 2018 13:56:11
Can anyone explain to me what a champions league quality player is as we got there last year with some of the dross we still have now?

Just for some info AEK signed their number 10 for 1.8 million euros in the Summer. The number 4 can’t get a game for Bologna so they sent him out on loan.
The number 17 cost them €200k.

All of these would improve our squad.

Melling at Rosenborg looked good in both games against us. Fair enough he would probably play second fiddle to KT but surely a better option than Izzy. 2 of the Astana players looked decent against us last season, Twumasi and Kabananga. Tavares and Ibraimi looked decent against us for Maribor even further back that that. Zyro at Legia.

To me these are the types of players we should be scouting.

15 Aug 2018 13:58:04
Kev stop twisting my words. Edouard is here, signed, done deal long ago. Let's discuss who we get now to help the players at the club. That's what my initial post was a reply to nothing to do with who was signed prior to today. Who we want now. like trying to explain something to a child.

15 Aug 2018 13:58:37
I am not bothered if its £1 or £10 million as long as we strengthen the areas that need attention just now I would say CB position is our weak spot and if possible a flair player but we do need one or two in for first team football not to sit on the bench We should have them in before CL qualifiers BR himself said that he wanted the deals done early to bed them in as for players names can't give any I really only watch Celtic.

15 Aug 2018 14:36:03
I didn't twist your words. They are there to be read.
You said you'd do away with project buying and sign quality experienced players.
As for the child crap. Your one that can't have a discussion without trying to have digs and that. So who is being childish?

15 Aug 2018 14:45:47
NiallH all they players did look no bad against us but would they take us the next step?
I ain't sure as all they teams mentioned we have beaten or are around the same level as us.

15 Aug 2018 14:59:03
Ok Batman 😉😂.

15 Aug 2018 15:08:56
If we are going to spend in the remainder of the window i want us to bring in quality experienced players. Ones that can help the current players. You seem to think we can't do that because everyone in that bracket costs £20-£40m. That is not true that is just your opinion. There is thousands of players in europe alone that can be brought in it as i said using a good scouting network to scource these players. You disagree. Move on i've said my bit and you know where i stand with what has become an embarrassing 2 weeks for the club, yet the people who would happily clip PLs toenails or shampoo DDs tashe choose to ignore that.

15 Aug 2018 15:41:27
Anyone know how much the two centre backs were for aek as they looked a massive improvement on what we have . Defenders who love a tackle and header . ?

Kev83, what is your honest opinion regarding the club at the minute as you always shoot down peoples opinions regarding spending and improving . Not being argumentative but are you happy with how we are at the minute, if not what would you like to see change? If you aren’t happy how much do you think the club should back Rogers, if at all . ?
Just wondering.

15 Aug 2018 21:21:24

What does it matter if it is teams that we beat?

So in your warped logic all the players are of equal standing as no player can be better than his teams standard? So Tommy Johnson was just as good a player as Larsson as they were in the same squad? David Fernandez as good as Sutton? Ambrose as good as VVD?

Every single one of those players I mentioned would have improved our team at the time regardless if we knocked them out or not.

Look at Sevco. Played against a left back they clearly rated and within a week they had him signed up.

I think my suggestion is better than the attitude that there is no point in signing anyone as everyone is too expensive.
