We all know the club is paying the penalty for not buying players in the summer, we are struggling for goals and here is one major reason.
This is NOT my research, but I read online that Dembele, Armstrong and Roberts contributed 85 goals between them to the side and, just as importantly, 54 Assists making a total of 139 goals LOST from the team since last season. 3 important players NEVER replaced.
Lawwell, hang your head in shame.

Spot on Tim we're a shadow of the last 2 seasons s due to not spending and the board have a lot to answer to. if we don't do good business in jan then 8iar will not happen and before i get shot down look at the results we struggle to break down bang average teams ie. st mirren Hamilton killie.

But Armstrong and Roberts couldn't make the starting 11 and all 3 didn't want to be here. Why should Lawell hang his head in shame? It's not Lawell that picks the team or tactics etc, Rodgers signings would get any other manager the sack and rightly so!

We have a long history of failing to build from a position of strength and it infuriates me to see this happening yet again.
There was some real complacency at the club from 2012 - 2015, when it was accepted by the board that there was no need to spend because we had no real competition, but under RD they had a reality check and turned to BR for improvement and progress, but now here we are in his third season and they fall back into old habits - taking his and the players achievements for granted and pull the rug from under him.

sitting watching the Leeds game and the boy Moses odabajo who we had in pre season is playing and looks class. he'd have been better than lustig on this showing baffling no one could see this and a free transfer just what Pedro loves somebody needs there erse kicked.

Rodgers spent 9mil on edouard, he bought morgan for 1mil approx, he bought kouassi for 3mil, he bought sinclair for 3mil and you say the board have to hang their heads in shame. that's about 16mil on four players Timalloy. The blame is clearly on rodgers shoulders. It will be an awkward pint on sunday for you timalloy, you keep that nonsense up and the suit will be hanging out you again☘HH.

Morgan was 300.000 and when you don't replace the 3 players that left your gobny have problems agree kouassi was a mistake but sinc came in over 2 years ago and up until recently was a huge success. the summer window was a disaster Brendan said he wanted 3 players did he get them?

Mally, brendan has wasted millions, how many of his signings actually play in the starting 11? Eddie, hendry. The less said about hendry the better. The board have backed brendan financially and he has wasted it. And yes mally we actually got 4 players👍. His signings have been a joke☘HH.

I would hazard an educated guess that between transfer fees, wages and keeping guy's already in the squad BR has had way over 30million in the time he has been here. Probably more than any Celtic manager before him.
I was trying to say a few months back about this and was getting called a board sympathizer for this lol
He has had money just in my opinion some of it seems to have been not spent very well, although I'm sure he was able to get more out of the squad than he first thought.

06 Oct 2018 16:56:03
But they weren't what he wanted dare I say mcginn and apart from eddy cost next to nothing Mulumbu was a free . Agree some players haven't worked but you could say that about most managers.

To be a little bit fair ALL the other teams in Scotland bar Aberdeen have played with 10 men behind the ball and hit us on the break because our defence is crap.

06 Oct 2018 17:36:27
It's a mixture of everyone's fault for the situation at present.

Rodgers has had money. Could argue his big money signings have worked. Bought some utter rubbish as all managers have.

Congerton/ scouting Seem to be shopping in a market we can't afford. 4 names were wanted this summer. When deals fell through seemed no back up plan.

Celtic plc
Could argue they have backed Rodgers. Could argue they haven't. Resigned our best players and got good money for players sold.

100% didn't do their jobs in the last window. Let Rodgers down and more importantly they let us the fans down.

Going forward the players here need to roll sleeves up and grind out results until January. The boys have done us proud but need help.

Scouting should be well underway at identifying potential targets.

Board need to back manager in this next window. If the doudt he's not the man to spend the money we have sadly they will have to sack him.

Dembele left in the last hours of the transfer window due to Brendan’s shenanigans with him. It was Brendan didn’t replace him or plan to replace him. Not the Board.
Brendan burdened the board with having to cut a sales deal with Lyon in hours! Not good.

Armstrong was always going. Brendan has recruited lots of midfielders. There’s 15 midfielders in the squad.

Brendan could have bought Patrick Roberts but didn’t want to. He thought the opposition was reading him well now and he was going backwards. Not the Board.
There were 7 new signings in the window: big Filip, Arzani, Izzaguire, Mulumbu, Bain, Edouard and an England Youth lad. and add Ryan Christie returning to that.

Surely with all this:

We can rag doll the rest of the SPFL.
The focus now is for Brendan to show his mettle with the squad he’s put together over two years to do the business. It’s three times the value of any Scottish squad and about five times the wages. The Board have put the money out there.
