Yesterday was just the sort of performance and result needed to get the ball rolling again. My concern is with Lennon's comments after the game where he said "If we don't bring any more in but don't lose anybody then I'd be happy". I don't agree with that at all. I think we badly need cover at LB. Other than that I'd say we're looking pretty strong.

I think we can all see how exposed we were down both wings - especially the left, where we have no natural left footed players.
I was hoping to see the back of Boli and Rogic by now to free-up cash to address this perennial left back situation; but hey-ho.
Gregg Taylor is our currently only option, but has lost his place to JF who cannot be left out because of his value and experience; but Forrest is not a left wingback and as much as Frimpong brings to the attack, he too is left exposed a lot when teams counter us.
It's early days and some of the players have hardly played together as yet, so hopefully, we drill the team in training and stick to a system that suits our outstanding attacking options and with 15 goals scored in only four games, it's working so far, domestically, but we will face tougher opponents along the way.
My main concern is losing a star player (or two) at the closing minutes of this 'window' and leaving ourselves much worse off.

{Ed007's Note - Bolingoli has joined Istanbul Basaksehir on a one-year loan deal.}

He's obviously got something about him Ed if he's getting these sorts of moves but coming here clearly just didn't work out for him or the club at all.

{Ed007's Note - Basaksehir won their first title last season - and are straight into the CL Group Stages - so they must be a decent side to beat the likes of Galatasaray and Besiktas.

13 Sep 2020 13:45:55
Will we now try bring in a replacement or will forrest find himself the new left wb Ed 007?

{Ed007's Note - I expect a new signing.}

13 Sep 2020 13:49:44
Now it’s been confirmed,
Celtic need to get a left back to replace him.

13 Sep 2020 14:07:51
There's a guy - left-footed - playing for Basaksehir of Turkey. He's a bit of a maverick but is that not a good thing? He's got history but so has Griffiths and can get bums off seats. Just a thought but he may not cost much.

Lennon is entitled to say what he likes . Nobody only the most gullible will at anytime will believe exactly what boss says in a transfer window . There is absolutely no point in Lennon putting clubs with left sided players possibly available on transfer that, Celtic are desperate for that type of player
I always thought the advantage of 3 at the back &wing backs were wing backs could push up and either of two c bs could move out to fix gap behind wing backs and a defensive midfielder drop back to take up position vacated by c b covering for wing back.

You want him to bring in players for the positions we need before he gets offers in for our major players. If he doesn't we'll still have a problem as selling clubs will demand top dollar since we'll have money.

13 Sep 2020 14:52:11
@Chris, the people who run football clubs aren't stupid (for the most part) , everybody and their granny can see that we need a LB and Lennon coming out and pretending we'd be happy to go without isn't going to pull the wool over anybody's eyes.

13 Sep 2020 15:02:03
Stengo offers for major players change nothing, what makes changes are when the offers for player or players are accepted by players who then force Club to accept them and players is sold .
Not all players are like K T and shouting all their careers, how great a Celt he is and then force his departure to Arsenal.

13 Sep 2020 15:17:10
Everybody and their granny could also see we needed a left footed CB since Celtic started playing 3-5-2 in January. And we are still waiting.

13 Sep 2020 15:35:58
OMC, I'm referring to the major players as Christie, Calmac, Eddie, Ajer, Forrest and Ntcham. I'm not selling the whole heart and soul of the team but Ntcham (contract up 2022) , Christie (2022) , Ajer, (2022) and Eddie (2022) . Gump is 2023 and Calmac is 2024. I wouldn't see PL sell any of these for bottom dollar and although one or two are in their late 20's there is still decent money to be made, and that is my point. If we get good money for any of these players then selling clubs will know we've got money in the bank.

13 Sep 2020 14:40:07
Just noticed that about Bolingoli Ed cheers;
Was going to ask you this as well; Do you think the excitement and 'buzz' the new arrivals bring to the squad will have any bearing on the likes of Ajer and Ntcham that may want to leave - second thoughts etc - or has that ship sailed?

{Ed007's Note - Not with Ajer who is pretty determined he wants to leave in this window.}

13 Sep 2020 19:31:28
I know that BB, so if Lennon had came out and said we don't need a left footed CB it also wouldn't trick other clubs into letting them go any cheaper either.

13 Sep 2020 22:44:33
We don’t go to that simple basic about clubs re- valuing players, but at the same time there is no need to shout from the hill tops of who we want for where . According to Ed . Lennon has nothing to do with the signing of players, so it’s only right that he doesn’t stick his nose in and create problems for those who do the work on transfers .
