Guys I firmly believe this summer transfer window could be our most important ever.
For the first time ever we have plenty of money available to us, up to 50m in the bank I hear.

We could easily get 2x 8-10m players and a 6m player and only spend 25m which would surely bring better quality.

Add a couple of loans and we got 20m left easily, in addition Ntcham will be off with a poss 10m pricetag aswell as about 8-11 players leaving and freeing up wages boosting bank balance again.

So Mr Lawwell I have been a fan of yours over the years so its over to you to send a message to all and sundry that we mean business and spending big this summer will take us onto the 10 hopefully, as the quality of players we should be able to get should stay for the ten as very few players only stay at a club for 1 year.
Just my opinion guys but its there for all to see what we need to do.

Raymann we all know money needs spent but what I would ask you is do you think 10 million buys you serious quality now a days?

Your two £8-10M and one £6M player will add around £7M per year to the wage bill.

If these player come in on 4 year deals that's a total investment of £54M (£26M fees and £28M wages) .

For 3 players? And all to win 2 more league titles.

Never going to happen.

{Ed007's Note - Why not? When you remove Rodgers & his teams wages and the likes of Compper, Boyata, Scott Allan, De Vries, Gordon, Izaguirre, Gamboa and perhaps Ntcham, Kouassi, Benyu not to mention what we're paying towards the loanees Benkovic, Weah & Burke wages there should be plenty of room to pay good wages to a couple of quality signings.}

Not a lot to disagree with there mate:
However, I think we have an even BIGGER issue to fill.
That being the manager, this is THEE biggest acquisition that must be dealt with 1st and one that needs to be sorted.
I`m sure BR will have drawn up a hit list of players that Celtic will still have.
Would BR want those players at Leicester? I don`t think so.
He will get Benko back and Boyata ( free) Players he knows for starters.
Now as for us when we bag the league, Lenny has 2 games to bag the Treble Treble.
As much as Lenny has been here done it, My Honest opinion is that we need to take this position to the next level.
A manager that get us into the league groups of the CL.
That cements 10 in a row. It does not have to be a "Celtic Man ".

We have moved on, NOW we must go FORWARD.

Kev, I’ve just worked it out and the answer is YES. You can get 3,125,000 pints of Guinness for £10M. Quality ☘️👍.

18 Mar 2019 19:59:28
Ed you’re bang on and take BRs suntan lotion and teeth whitener out and that’s another £1M 👍.

{Ed007's Note - His £14(ish) million settlement from Liverpool will have looked after all that.}

I do think there will be money spent this summer. Part of the reason why is the money they were will to spend on the right back from Italy in January.
But I also think Celtic fans will need to realign what kind of quality we get for 9-10 million now a days.

{Ed007's Note - There's quality out there at that price, Kev, maybe not in England but places like France, Holland and the Eastern European leagues you will find players that will improve us for less than that - it's a matter of getting in there quick and maybe even taking the odd risk where others won't a la VVD or Wanyama
Going from what I've heard, read and seen from ticket applications our scouts have spent a lot of time in Eastern Europe and Congerton himself was at the most recent Belgrade Derby.}

The Irish tri-colour was removed by stewards at Dundee yesterday despite it being St Patrick’s day celebrations when the Irish Triclour could be seen all over the world from Newmains to New York and even in parts of Airdrie. Oh that’s right it’s Scotland and it was apparently covering an advertising board. After it was removed pray tell why then was the brave bhoy who claimed it back removed from the stadium when the advertisement was then clear.

He wouldn’t havre needed to jump down for it if it hadn’t been pulled from below and had the gentleman been approached in his seat and the effect on Dundee’s revenue explained to him. Or do I once again smell excrement? I’ll reserve judgment and keep a close eye out for the next Union Flag covering an advertising board in Dundee that is removed. Happy St Patrick’s Day.

Srdan Babic possibly Ed? We've been linked with him since last summer.

{Ed007's Note - Could be, Kev, maybe Milan Pavkov or Vujadin Savic.}

18 Mar 2019 22:02:53
13 players out and 3 in?

I know the squad is big but it's not that big.

I'd love it to happen as much as any other fan but Celtic Football club is a business and it will appease the board and shareholders before fans.

Our 2nd string would compete for the league let alone investing £50M+ at it.

The foundations have been laid for 10 in a row with guys like Bain, Ajer, Tierney, Brown McGregor, Forrest, Rogic, Christie, Johnston and Edouard signing deals to see them though til then. Players will be brought in round about them but no chance we will see the kind of outlay the original poster mention.

The guys Ed007 mentioned need to go to reduce the wage bill regardless.

Rayman90 every transfer window is said to be the most important window ever.
At the end of the summer transfer window our team will hope to have a stronger 1st than at the opening.

Think it’s safe to add Sinclair to that list I wreckon he’s for the off.

19 Mar 2019 04:37:46
I think that as well Greenockbhoy, don't know why though. Don't think it needs 25mill to win the league so you can bet PL doesn't. Rangers players just don't have the bottle, can't even get up for a cup tie. Something wrong there. However although Rodgers did bring us a lot of success we were embarrassing in Europe. Unsure of who the right man would be. But as has been said on here, lennon performed against better rangers teams.
