I think you need to give PL until midnight Kev to be fair.

01 Jan 2020 14:39:01
But but but look at his wage JFP.

01 Jan 2020 15:36:29
Do I detect some sarcasm there kev 🤣🤣 to be fair lawells wages are a disgrace in Scottish football terms!

01 Jan 2020 15:47:32
why are we possibly about to spend 6 mill aprox on a guy who was outscoring bayo in the same league at same time, .

Danny the are not a disgrace in business terms though. A company with a 100 million turn over it's pretty standard.

{Ed007's Note - Lawwell is paid £1 million more the the CEO of the Pub League and about £500k less than Ed Woodward at Man Utd - after he was given a 60% pay hike last year - who have a turnover of £627 million.
Lawwell's salary is pretty far from standard, Kev, he's taking home 3.5% of the entire business turnover and is one of the best paid CEOs in British - and probably European - football.}

If he was outscoring Bayo then surely you'd prefer him over Bayo? He's got 56 goals since the start of last season and, without knowing much about him, it's the sort of numbers I'd be looking for all day long tbh. Eddy is amazing but he's not prolific so we need to be able to mix it up.

{Ed007's Note - Remember Bayo was brought over here so Toure could mentor him.}

Lawwels wages are only around 1-1.5 million.
The rest is performance related bonus.
We have a share price that isn't that far off the highest it's ever been.
On the park we are going through a unprecedented level of success in my life time. The last 10 trophies are in our trophy cabinet and we've won 15 of the last 20 titles
How many teams in Europe can say that?

Jeez spurs have won nothing and there man took over 6 million home not that long ago.
I'd say lawwel does a better job than the likes of Ed Woodward while having a harder job.

{Ed007's Note - Whether it's bonuses or salary he shouldn't be getting that percentage of the turnover. There's no way in the world the Celtic CEO job is harder than the Man Utd job, Utd are arguably the biggest club in the world and the finances & market they deal in are astronomical compared to ours, the level and egos of players they deal with (Pogba) and dealing with superagents like Mino Raiola etc. I'm guessing Woodward's includes bonuses as his earnings dropped from £2.95m in 2016/17 to £2.6m in 2017/18 then up to the £4.1m last year.
Levy's earnings last year jumped from £2.6m to £6.1m because it included a back-dated pay-rise and performance bonuses that were also back-dated, basically they paid him money they had owed him over time.
How many other clubs in Europe can say their CEO takes the highest salary/bonus out of every employee? None.}

Big Sam Cosgrove has scored 40 goals in last year, is a pure nightmare to play against. Just saying like.

Oh and happy new year everyone and thanks for your wisdom and input ed007 its appreciated 🍀💚 HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate, Happy New Year to you too.}

01 Jan 2020 19:09:59
DRB we paid 9 million for eddy and he had just 16 or so games under his belt before coming to celtic on loan.

01 Jan 2020 19:21:47
I think we should honour that arrangement Ed and sell him off to Leicester 😂.

{Ed007's Note - For £12 million 😁

01 Jan 2020 19:36:06
Plus Benkovic.

{Ed007's Note - I'd settle for £10 million for Bayo if they were throwing in Benkovic 😂

01 Jan 2020 19:42:06
Ed lawwel has to work harder to get things like sponsorship deals, revenue streams, kit deals ect ect ect. Compared to EPL teams we work with both hands behind tied behind our back.
Put us down there and lawwel would wipe the floor with that lot.

{Ed007's Note - Aye OK then.}

Can’t agree kev. lawells salary even before his bonuses are way to much for the environment he works in! And the ‘bonuses’ he gets are quite frankly are absolutely scandalous! Nobody can deny that lawell has done good things at the club but he’s also overseen the loss of major revenue streams with major failure in the champions league qualifiers! For me he gets just a little bit to much credit some times and avoids a lot of the real flak when things don’t go well. and I’ll be brutally honest and say that he doesn’t fight our clubs corner even nearly enough when we’re getting it tight from all angles! The aftermath of Sunday’s game being the latest!

I’m with the majority of the lads on here where I think he’s overpaid for the environment . I appreciate we are going through unprecedented success at the minute, but I wouldn’t put too much of that down to lawell. He has seemed to go down cheap options regarding managers, Ronnie / possibly Lennie . The appointment of Rogers by all accounts came from Desmond as he had the hump with sevco directors jumping around in front of him.

He never over spends when fans sometimes are crying out for a larger outlay, we all know he keeps the books positive so he can earn his big bonus cheque. Also like Danny said,
He rarely backs us up. ( in another note I miss the times of the lawyer that passed away, who always took sfa/ Rangers to task )
