The players we have plus two new lads plus keV and few others and Lennon saying we are Gona sign more do we need to sell overheads etc. We can't keep buying and spending balance the books and all that. Can we even afford this who do we sell etc etc because this can't sustained just curious. @ED007 CAN we get your input 😛.

{Ed007's Note - What do you mean, Andy, wages wise? With Sinclair away his wages will cover the majority if not all the incoming players pay this month unless Lawwell pulls out a "marquee" signing. There will be further exits as well and even if it's loans and we pay a percentage of the wages it's still giving leeway on our wagebill.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I was listening to SSB and Alex Rae jumped down the throat of a Celtic fan for questioning the boards lack of support. If Celtic sign Soro we will have spent £20 million on players this season but Celtic have still made a profit of £5 million due to the KT transfer. Sevco on the other hand have spent at least £12 million on transfers this season. I still think the board should release proper finances to give Celtic a much better chance of winning another title. Do you think the board are giving the manager proper backing taking into consideration what’s at stake?

{Ed007's Note - There's been far too much money spent on players that simply aren't good enough or offer very little - some offering nothing - through being permanently injured while the squad still needs trimmed down. We can't keep adding to the costs until we ship the likes of Gordon, Kouassi, Hendry, Simunovic and Bayo out, whatever happened to the 2 American fullbacks we signed as well not to mention Shved the wonderkid and where the Hell is Benyu these days?
It's the same old story for me, it's not the amount we're spending it's how we are spending it, £5 million on Bolingoli and Elhamed is starting to look like a waste of money for a start.}

Ed007, I had to look it up to find out who this Benyu guy is! lol HH.

{Ed007's Note - He's our very own Jack Griffin! Maybe Nick Halloway for the younger posters lol.}

20 Jan 2020 20:36:31
Aye, he's invisible alright! lol It seems he has been on loan at Helsingborg for a season. In total he has played 35 games in 6 years. Makes Rogic look like a first team regular by comparison :-) HH.

{Ed007's Note - Helsingborgs season is finished I think so he must be back with us by now.}

Totally agree @ED007
CELTIC fans want more more non of them ever say, who do we need to sell. What's our best assets to sell and to bring in new blood. Do we sell ntcham, calmac Forrest to keep profit s up.
Yes @ED007 WAGES
goodness sake how much was Sinclair's on. I know we have a wage structure but was Sinclair's wages so hi I never knew that. Get these new lads on the field see how gd they are as with us fans we want them able to play straight away and be amazing.
Thanks for that @ED007.

{Ed007's Note - As I said, Andy it's the same old story with Celtic I've been saying for years before I was on here, we need to invest in quality and not quantity. Fans need to put signing youngsters like Luca Connell & Afolabi to the side - Frimpong could easily have been in the same boat too - because they are for the future and aren't important in the here and now, should we not announce these kind of signing because they aren't costing millions of pounds? At least it gives a section of the support something to moan about.
Some reports are saying that Sinclair was an £40k a week but I'd put it in the £30k -£35k bracket which is one of the highest wages we've paid in years for a permanent signing although Brown is on the same kind of dough as captain - Klimala and Soro together will be lucky to take up a quarter of that imo, players coming from Poland and Israel won't be on crazy money.}

And 22 of them were for Aldershot Town! HH.
