I've just read the statement released by the Club regarding the behaviour of a minority of muppets at CP after yesterday's game.
These mindless morons don't seem to appreciate the damage their actions will have on our Club.

{Ed007's Note - It'll take some doing to do more damage than Lawwell and the board have.}

Apparently Lennon is staying as Dermott Desmond is not going to "bow down to yobs" according to Jim Whyte.

A few hundred knock over a fence and the media have Celtic under siege. The Board could and should have prevented this weeks ago. Everybody seen this coming apart from them.

Maybe if Lennon played proper cbs at cb and proper rbs at rb we might not concede as many goals oh and a wide man that beat a player and throw in a quality ball for strikers to attack. and the club instead of buying 2 and 3 mill on average players spent the combined amount on a decent player . how much money have we wasted it's a joke.

This was supposed to be a special year as a Celtic fan, creating history by doing the 10, creating history by winning the quadruple treble and perhaps getting to the champions league. It's now looking like one of the worst years in our history and all down to the ego's of three men, I could cry.

Pud, are you saying that the demonstration was just a storm in a teacup and wasn't filled with anger and bitterness?
Are you trying to convince us that a few hundred angry people isn't potentially dangerous?
Stop making excuses for nobbheads. HH.

All 3 are still possible if the players get their acts together.

Mallythetally club is trying to model itself with setup in place at clubs in EPL, La Liga and Serie A by having a dof etc. Problem is we don't have the income these clubs have and should be giving any manager a transfer budget and putting faith in their judgement.

What I'm concerned about is if we get a new manager in place, will same problems occur? Cause I think they will unless Lawwell steps down.

{Ed007's Note - It's not only clubs in those leagues that have DOFs and it's nothing to do with money either - wasn't it Cluj's DOF Bogdan Mara that said we tried to sign Omrani - it's about setting up your club with a long term plan and vision of continuity that won't fall apart every time there's a change of coach.
Peter Lawwell has earned £15 million in his time as CEO (circa £10m in the last 5 years) so to say there's no money to pay a DOF is wrong, Lawwell simply doesn't want to lose his control of transfers.}

If a dof is what s needed then a club our size should have one. hammond would appear to be in charge of recruitment but what did he see in klimala and ajeti who could hardly get on west hams bench but ignores dykes for a paltry 2 mill. surely his position should be reviewed as our signings look very poor.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Lawwell didn't think Dykes was worth £2 million and considering he's a donkey and 4 of his 5 goals for QPR have been penalties I'd say Lawwell called it spot on if that's what happened.
We simply don't get enough penalties to warrant spending £2 million on someone to take them.}

I can see where DD is coming from; however, it deflects from the total shambles that Celtic Football Club has become - and will continue to be, by retaining the status quo and ignoring a crisis.
NL must know deep down that the players have failed him time and time again, despite having heard umpteen team talks, instructions and pre-match motivation. On top of that, there are those inside the dressing room wanting him gone. Now the support are turning on him - never mind the media scrutiny and scoffing - while the months pass us by.
He would gain much more respect and gratitude if he walked away and made the decision for them, but his stubbornness fuels the flames.

Ed007 I never knew that about cluj and from what you have said, it sounds to me that regarding transfers Lawwell is trying to do the dof role as well.

{Ed007's Note - Most teams on the continent have a DOF or a Sporting/Technical Director (there's a few names that cover it) and they oversee everything in the football department. Lawwell is doing parts of the DOF job but he doesn't have the skills required, you need footballing men to make footballing decisions. Just look at the state Man Utd are in because the people running the club and making all the decisions are businessmen.}

Well from what I've seen of dykes he's better than our 2 put together and will prob go for double figures in a year but that's my opinion for what it's worth.

{Ed007's Note - He probably will, just like Oliver Burke and Oli McBurnie did.}

1 million percent Ed the board have done a lot more damage than those fans have last night although I condone the actions and more so the missile throwing but it was there for all to see he wasn't the man for the job even from last season but the board just left it now I fear it could be to late for this season and maybe the next one also It's going to take a lot of time to heal this it could affect season tickets for next year and merchandise for this one also.
